Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

Billy "Wayne" Blackburn III reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-26 00:00:00
Hello,

I firstly would like to say a couple of things about me, so that you can hopefully have a better understanding of my comments. I am an aspiring Director in LA, even if this is the worst time since the great depression to be in this industry. I've done a few small projects here and there and though I've grown up with movies my whole life (hence, the profession choice) it wasn't until film school that I started to make a list of all of my favorite film score composers. I began listening to all kinds of soundtracks and it was an interesting journey.

I started out the same way as at least 80% of people out there, saying that "John Williams was the best! Come on, Star Wars, Superman, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and who can say that the soundtrack for Jurassic Park wasn't one of the best soundtracks of all time!" John Williams is a brilliant composer and is definitely one of the greatest of all time, but after leaving the shallow end of the "composer pool", I noticed that I was a big fan of Danny Elfman, (Batman, Edward Scissor-hands, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) James Horner, (Titanic, Avatar, Aliens, Braveheart,etc.), Jerry Goldsmith (Rudy, Star Trek, Alien, etc.) and many more big names. BUT, I found myself coming back to one composer over and over again.

To sit here and just type in the list of great soundtracks would be pointless, since you can easily find it on IMDb (as well as myself, but not worth your time) or anywhere else on the internet, but I am just going to mention a few. There have been at least a 2-3 dozen soundtracks that have been incredible throughout Mr. Zimmer’s filmography, but it was the "Gladiator" soundtrack that stopped me. That soundtrack became an integral part of the way I thought about the movie making process as a Director. It opened a flood door of trying to collect, listen, and compare as many Hans Zimmer soundtracks as I could. The next phase was with the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks. I found the 3rd movie's soundtrack (At World’s End) as the best and it joined "Gladiator" atop to list. Finally, "The Last Samurai". This soundtrack was innovative and seemed like Mr. Zimmer was “out of his element”, so to speak, but found the challenge of creating music of a different culture new and exciting and it came across very much in the writing.

The reason I have Mr. Zimmer at the very top of my “Favorite Composers of All Time List”, isn’t because he’s mainstream and popular, and it isn’t because he keeps getting teamed with brilliant Directors (even though he is); it IS because I understand that he is unbelievably talented and has a way of making the music he scores come to life. Sure people say that all the time, “the music is supposed to be that way dummy!” It’s more than that with his music. People don’t fully appreciate film scores. You can tell me that you “love it and that it’s amazing” until you’re blue in the face, and I may agree with you; however, until you can comprehend WHY the music FEELS the way it does, EXPRESSES the EMOTION the way it does; and until you can grasp the concept, that someone (namely Mr. Zimmer) has been able to take the same air we breathe, capture it, mold it into tiny notes on a page, then translate these notes with the addition of dynamics, pitch, tone, resonance, and rhythm, into sounds that vibrate that tiny little bone inside your ear, setting off millions of synapses that then influence the chemical make-up of your brain, altering your state of mind and perception until you FEEL your mood start to fall into a trance strikingly similar to the way a cobra dances to the Snake Charmer’s flute. THEN, I’ll know that you understand the abilities, power, and downright magic that Mr. Zimmer possesses.

With all finally being said, I only wish to thank you Mr. Zimmer for the incredible work you do. For the brilliant and masterful way you have influenced how a story is told. Lastly, for the way your music has allowed not only the story, but life itself to enhance the way we perceive the world around us. I can only hope to have the privilege to work with you one day. Thank you.

A True Fan,
-B. Wayne Blackburn III-

I felt so compelled to look this site up to write some sort of feedback. The music for Inception (particularly 'Time' ) is the most beautiful music I have ever listened to. I am practically speechless as to describe the beauty in this music, it cannot be compared.

It is a masterpiece!

Mr. Zimmer,

I'm sure you've heard enough people tell you what an amazing job you've done composing music that is both uplifting and inspiring. I just wanted to say as a young filmmaker, your music from Dark Knight and Inception has inspired me to write both screenplay and music.

There is something in your music that expresses some of the deepest of human emotion and every time I listen to it, it touches my soul. I think "Old Souls" from Inception is your best piece yet followed closely by "Lasiurus" from Batman Begins.

My hope is that one day, when I'm in Hollywood, I will get to work with you. Setting your music to one of my films would be an honor, sir.

I know you're a very busy guy, but I would love to send you a copy of my screenplay for my short film. My email is treeoflifeproductions@gmail.com. Even if I don't hear back from you, please continue to bring inspiration to the world with your music.

Hans, I'm using a translator to write, please excuse if there are grammatical errors. I have 15 years and when I saw the film Spirit was fascinated with your music. I started searching all your discography, and further, that film (with music) made me feel new things: love of horses (now I practice riding), passion for music (I play the piano) and a taste for film music.
Frankly, I consider you a genius, and thank you for what you do, because otherwise I would have loved your music would never be doing so many things that I'm happy.
I want you know, sure I'm not the only person that improve lives, and wanted you to know, because as an artist, you might like to see than people changed with your work.
I send a big welcome, and sincerely I would contact you by e-mail, but I know that is impossible with the artists.
I hope you keep writing more, delighting your audience.
Mailén.

Hello Mr. Zimmer,

I am a graduate student studying Music Technology with an emphasis in Electronic Composition. I want to become a composer for films and video games. I have been a huge fan of your music ever since The Lion King, when I was growing old enough to appreciate film music =) You are incredibly talented! Your music makes each film so much more powerful. It would be an honor to have a chance to intern or work with you. I am also interested in any general advice you have about getting started in the music business. I would be more than happy to send you a résumé and/or some samples of my music. My email address is lnhuddleston@gmail.com. I know you are extremely busy, but I would be ecstatic to hear from you!

Thank you,
Lindsay

Mr. Zimmer,
I promised my sister named Jessica Jimenez I wouldn't but she is a fourteen year old girl who is striving to be more like you. She is constanally trying to go to one of your concerts, but fails to do so. At the moment she is learning to play the guitar, and has picked up the flute, piano and is very good at making her own notes. I want to say thank you very much because without you as her rolemodel she'd be lost. Her words to me are that one day she'll meet and train with you...the best! Thank you and have a wonderful day! :) Becca

Sir, I'm Brazilian and I wanted to tell you that I've never admired an artist so much. I've loved movies since I was born and your scores are truely the essence of most remarkable and unforgettable scenes. You own a real gift. When I close my eyes and listen to your work I feel all emotions one could feel. I have recorded many of them and they give me stregth to wake up every day. They've helped me through tough times. Thank you for presenting humanity with your music implented with spirituality. If you ever come to Brazil, you will feel the warmth the Brazilian people have for you. And if you feel like meeting the alligators from Pantanal, they are like my neighbors. !! Have a nice day.

Mr. Zimmer,
Just wanted to tell you that you are an extremely talented guy. The movies I've seen that you have done the score for are amazing. They help push the movie from something good/ok/great into something fantastic. The music complements the mood and setting and pretty much whatever is going on in the movie so well. I am a particular fan of the action movies you have done like Broken Arrow, The Rock, Dark Knight, the Gladiator score was absolutely beautiful. Big fan, keep doing what you are doing.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
My name is Diego Aldonza Crespo and I am a percussionist from Spain, really passionate about your music, specially one of your later releases "Batman - The Dark Knight". I have always wished to play soundtracks music, because I think it's the next natural step of classical music, and it talks about modern life.
I finished my Bachelor studies in Zaragoza (Spain), and I have a percussion duo with wich I have performed a lot of concerts including Bach music, tango pieces, Zivkovic duos... but it was always too tipical. So listening to your music I had a great idea that would allow me to achieve one of my dreams!! And it is to make some arrangements of your music for duo and electronics, including Midi sounds and tape. I'm writting because I would like to know what you think about it and because counting with your support would be great. I know it sounds very crazy and probably you will never read this, but I hope you understand that I had to try!!
If you want I can send you my resume so you can see that I'm serious about music.

Thank you very much in advance!
Sincerely,
Diego
