Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.<br><br>On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack
In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modern
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.
Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..

How did Nick Glennie-Smith involved in that movie? And who, except Zimmer and Glennie-Smith, played and sang on this soundtrack (I mean, in the cue "Las Vegas" i heard live electroguitar, gospel choir, soloists and saxophone).


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-15 08:52:54
One little thing. Jay Rifkin (together with Al Clay) recorded and mixed Rain Man

I didn't know where to post this, so I will post it here.
Hybrid Soldier, do you know what cues Zimmer wrote for Sniper?(1993).
Or does anybody else knows anything?
Thank you. Greetings from Greece.


Hybrid Soldier2016-08-10 00:08:39
Just watch the film it's pretty obvious... Mark & Hans wrote about 5/6 cues, more action/emotional moments. Pretty cool actually, sort of Tears of the Sun 10 years before... :)


Dimitris Krommidas2016-08-10 00:41:51
Thank you for the reply.
I have an album with 33 tracks. I will try to figure Zimmer/Mancina cues.


Hybrid Soldier2016-08-10 08:25:07
I know what you're talking about and HZ/MM's cues are not in it.


Dimitris Krommidas2016-08-10 14:24:07
I see...well...it's ok..thank you again.

Diene Musik kann man einfach nicht beschreiben... Ich fühle was sehr besonderes immer wenn ich mir irgendein Soundtrack von dir anhöre oder auf Klavier spiele. Danke für diese Gefühle die du weiter gibst. Ich würde so gerne auch so inspirierend werden wie du, wenn ich Erwachsen werde. Es ist unwahrscheinlich weil ich sehr gut sein muss und dabei auch noch so viel glück haben, dass mich jemand "entdeckt" :)

leaving wallbrook is a song that touched me deeply. The blend of instruments used especially the flute had much to do with it. Could you please refer me to similar sounding songs of that nature. Panpies are beautiful but work much better with and arrangement of other sounds as in "leaving wallbrook"
Thanks
Much appreciated!

This was the first Zimmer USA soundtrack and he did a wonderful score. Extraordinary. I love the whole soundtrack, epecially the End Credits. I would like to be released a full score version (and able to be bought, of course).

Hi Hans,
I am a fan of the movie Rainman, as there was a particular song in this movie that captured my soul.... "--Leaving Wallbrook"--. I have today found all the other songs you have contributed to the movie industry. With every song that I open and listen to, I'm amazed that I haven't taken note sooner, as you have such a powerful expression. Sandi
