I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

Hey I love your work!! I play Modern Warfare 2 for PC and I recently got the soundtrack for it. Your work is amazing and I hope you can continue to make many wonderful compositions in the many years to come!

I just wanted to say that Hans Zimmer is the most incredibly talented and amazingly stunning composer that I have ever, ever, ever heard before in my life. I have just about finished writing my first novel and I could just about credit the entire thing to Hans as every time I lost the plot (both my mind and the story) I would turn his music on, sit with my eyes closed and let anything at all come to me and everytime without fail, his music inspired something new and creative in my mind. THANK YOU HANS ZIMMER!

Hi,
I'm looking for a web site of Rupert Gregson-Williams. Unfortunately he hasn't any one. So I try my request here. I am looking desperately for Piano Sheet Music of "Jack and the Beanstalk", main theme/ harp song. Unfortunately, I can get it anywhere. So you’re my last hope. Would you be so kind to pass on my request to Rupert Gregson-Williams? I hope you have a heart for a fan. Best wishes from Cologne, Germany. Bettina

To the greatest man that the earth has brought,
If somebody ask me to choose one book, i could'nt. If somebody ask me to choose one movie, i could'nt too.
But if somebody ask me to choose a music man, i'll choose, without any doubt, you.
Since I'm able to walk, my life is rocked by the soundtracks of movies to which you contributed.
Today, not a day passes without some music invented by you do not resound in my ears.
I only want to say you "thank you very much" for these moments full of emotions.
I hope your time will be infinite, and your magnificence, incomparable.

Plenty of music sheets, My 'Rhapsody for a dream' for a huge orchestra, chorus and piano, my piano studies, soundtracks for films and whole new ideas which i do not write them, beacause like the others will end up on my desk waiting to be played for ages...And i speak to you Mr.Zimmer beacause i do not know to whom i may speak...Who can advise me what to do??...you are one of my music idols, talented, successfull, your dream is complete! When will my dream come true?! I know you are to busy to meddle with problems like my one...but you could help me.

Mr Zimmer, Thanks for another lovely soundtrack- The PACIFIC. I am part of a foundation doing preservation work on the Peleliu battlefield and your Peleliu cuts are eerie, haunting, and somehow capture
an essence of the place. Now I listen to the CD for accompaniment to some of my work, and some
inspiration for the efforts. Music is very powerful, one cannot ever underestimate how it can have an
affect things, such as a project to preserve a battlefield where so many died. This is a very symphonic,
sublime, deep, and contemplative effort by your team. I will no doubt hear it in my mind's ear when I am there, on island, later this year. Bravo.

Hi!

You guys are doing a great job covering the main topics of a brilliant composer. Thank you. There is one big thing I miss tho on this page and it's the Hans Zimmer "gear" list. What kinda hardware and software does he use for his midi mock-ups and so forth? And what could he recommend for aspiring composers to use? That would be a great additional to this page! Until then keep on brining the good stuff... :)


Cheers,
Mats from Norway.

Hey Mr. Zimmer,
My name is Garrett and I am a huge fan of your work. Your music inspires me to say the least and it would absolutly be incredible if you were able to read this in your very limited spare time. I'm a 15 year old highschool student and it would mean so much to see your written score for At Wit's End on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest soundtract. I have written some short pieces of music and am in the middle of writing a choral. It has been my dream to arrange some of your briliant pieces for band. I play the trumpet in school at the moment and am also taking music lessons for piano. I don't want to give you my life story here but if you had a couple of minutes out of your day to email me a response or anything I would be ecstatic. My email is: garrett626@hotmail.com.
Thx for your time Mr. Zimmer,
Garrett

as you can see, my name`s Freddy and I`m from Germany. Several days ago I watched the fantastic movie Sherlock Holmes and was totally amazed of the soundtrack, which you composed. Absolutely awesome.
Right now I`m searching for the sheet music of discombobulate and hope I`m gonna find it.
Well, keep on with this great work and I hope you`ll win an oscar!

i don`t know you mr. Zimmer and my english isn`t really good, but your music is the best i`ve ever heard. And i wanna hear more of it. Don´t make the music for Part 2 of Sherlock Holmes(maybe there will be a second part everywhen), they should make the second "movie-part" for your music. I hope you know i meen :-)

Hello Mr Zimmer
After over 3 years of searching for the sheet music notation to your score 'injection' which I find to be a beautiful & moving piece of music.

I'm on the verge of giving up looking & I found what I can only call a tiny spark of hope in this last request, in that somehow, someday, you might read this & bless me with the notation to the masterpiece.

The reason I am asking is purely for the purposes of looking in to your way of thinking & artistry in hope that some day (with my present limited composing skills) I can be in league with you & know what it feels like to bless the world with the gift such as which you possess.

My email is:
Dannyravenhall@live.co.uk
I would be forever in your debt if you could just bless me with my strongest desire to view your work on paper.

Thank you for your time

Looking forward to your next work very much
