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?

Dear mr Hans Zimmer,

After buying a ticket for your show I just drove 10 hours to be at your concert in Wroclaw.
To my surprise you weren't there. This is a bit confusing since your name is printed clearly and large on the ticket so I would expect you you to be there.

Could you please explain?

Sincere a disappointed fan.

If you go to "unofficial" concerts it's your problem, you should have checked that before... Many orhcestras organize concerts and play music from well-known composers, it doesn't mean the composer has to be there. Most of the time I guess the composer is not even aware of this concert.

Film music makes a vivid impression on me. Just about my favourite film is Gladiator and I find the music very emotional and uplifting... particularly 'earth' and the first battle/final amphitheatre fight scene at the end. Could I raise a possible plagarism issue here ? While on a clipper ship cruise, the ships sails were raised to music that I assumed was part of Gladiator - but which I subsequently found was Vangelis soundtrack to a film Conquest of Paradise 1492. Listening to both in paralle, it is apparent as a keen musician, that both sound very similar - only difference is that Vangelis theme starts in minor key and moves to major while Gladiator starts in the major key - but the main tune sounds so similar...... but Gladiator came first. Anyone else notice this ? If so should the Vangelis version be considered as plagarism ??


billy2015-11-12 14:31:05
I think Vangelis' theme came fisrt, in 1992, while Gladiator was in 2000. They look similar indeed, but only in the beginning. In my opinion it's not a plagiarism, as the two melodies evolve differently, I would call it just an "inspiration" for Glaiator's theme,something that happens quite often, especially in film composing. Notice, also, that Vangelis has inspired Zimmer a lot ;-)


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-12 15:48:16
I think that bastard Holst stole something from Gladiator too. And don't get me started on that hack Richard Wagner. Man, Gladiator sure is a popular source of inspiration!

;)


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-13 15:08:57
Yes, I'm a troll.


Wagnerian2015-11-14 15:35:55
Zimmers music is full of plagiarisms. Listen to Crimson Tide soundtrack and then to the Sigfried theme in Wagners ring... Come on! Really?


Wagnerian2015-11-14 15:43:26
OK "Plagiarism" is too strong a word - let's call it "inspiration". Zimmers music is great but it would be even greater to acknowledge the inspirations. Howard Shore admitted to the Rheingold Leitmotifs being a great inspiration for his amazing LOTR soundtrack...

Ich hab tausende Lieder, ohne die ich nicht leben könnte. Die Spitze führt schon seit über 20 Jahren Russ Ballard mit "on the rebound" an. Wobei ich das auch nicht als absolutes Lieblingslied titulieren könnte, da mir eben soooooo viele Andere auch gefallen. Wenn ich aber Hans Zimmer`s "Chevalier des Sangreal" höre, laufen mir jedes mal die Tränen. Einfach vor Freude und Ehrfurcht, dass Jemand so ein perfektes Lied komponiert hat. Gänsehaut von den Haarspitzen bis zum kleinen Zeh. Selbst wenn ich es 10mal hintereinander anhöre. Wer so einen Effekt bei einem anderen Menschen mit nur einem Lied erzeugen kann, ist für mich der Grösste. Danke Hans, wenn ich an einen guten Gott glauben würde, dann wüsste ich, dass Du es bist.

Geschätzter Herr Hans Zimmer!

Sie und ich teilen uns nicht nur das gleiche Geburtsjahr und -land, sondern auch die Liebe zur Musik, im Besonderen den Soundtrack.

Da ich im nördlichsten Mittelgebirge Deutschlands, dem Harz, einige Ferienwohnungen betreibe, stelle ich auch eine Reihe von informativen Dokumentarfilmen her. Die letzte Produktion ist ein Portraits der UNESCO-Welterbestadt Quedlinburg mit dem Titel "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands".
Quedlinburgs Bürgermeister Eberhard Brecht begründete die Entscheidung für den Slogan "Wiege Deutschlands" mit der Rolle der Stadt zur Ottonenzeit im 10. und 11. Jahrhundert, als viele Reichstage hier stattfanden und damit der Ort der Mittelpunkt des Deutschen Reiches war. Für diese, wie ich denke, beeindruckende Doku dieser beeindruckenden Stadt habe ich keine bessere und passendere Begleitmusik gefunden als die genialen Melodien aus Madagascar 2 und 3. Es würde wirklich ein Unterschied zwischen Tag und Nacht ergeben, wenn ich freundlicher Weise diese legal erworbenen Kunstwerke in meinem Dokumentarfilm "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands" verwenden dürfte, um auf unserer Website www.feriendomizil-badharzburg.de interessierten Urlaubern zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Mit der herzlichen Bitte um Verwendung o.g. Melodien unter ausdrücklicher Namensnennung des genialen Composers verbleibe ich mit

Harzlichen Grüßen
Horst Eidel

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

I just want to say 'thank you' for the incredible soundtrack to "Interstellar", especially "Dust", which lets me feel the deep space and make me thoughtful about everything. It is also a very good music for programming. I know you hear this very often and from everyone. But there is no reason why I shouldn't tell you also that you are awesome! Thanks for so many years of great music!

Dear Mr. Zimmer, My little sister is watching a TV series Called "The Hamama" which is using your pieces (Dark knight, Intersteller..), No credit is given to your name which makes me believe it is stolen.

It is hosted in Israel, The creator of the series Is Giora Hamizer, And the so called "music composer" is Tal Yardeni.

Sorry for the bad English, just wanted to let you know about the situation. It is a very popular Teen's show here.

Thanks for reading

Dear Mr. Zimmer. I recently discovered that a few songs on the magnificent Interstellar: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album on Spotify has been removed or dissapeared for some reason. The tracks included are "First Step", "No Time For Caution", "Flying Drone" and a few others. What is going on and will they be put back in the album soon? I'm a huge fan of you Hans so it's really killing me to not be able to enjoy your amazing music! I would be very thankful for your answer.

Mr. Zimmer,

I am writing this to you because a friend of ours who lives with my wife and I is a huge fan of yours. Because of you he is trying to get into the Carnegie School of Music in Pittsburgh, Pa. If there is any way you can send him not only some advice but words of encouragement. It would be much appreciated. He has a couple of disabilities he works with to include Turrets and aspergers syndrome. But he is determined to not only graduate school but to be able to create works as well as you do. He has written some works and he has had very little formal training but your words would help to inspire him.

Thank You
George

To Whom It May Concern,

I have directed a short film I want to put on youtube, but it would make the world of difference and make my video amazing if I could possibly speak to somebody about obtaining the rights to the song Waiting For A Train from the Inception soundtrack.

Please excuse me if this is not the correct place to ask as I am not sure the exact procedure. It would be much appreciated that if this is not the correct address to ask this, could you point me in the right direction. I can be contacted at thedav3@gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

Though I would much prefer to ask the composer himself, that option seems to be unavailable, so I shall ask the community of fans instead. In the song "Deliver Us" from The Prince of Egypt, around 5 minutes in, is a solo. The instrument that plays that solo sounds like a flute crossed with a recorder, and I would like to know what that instrument is. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
