He's right, it's outCheck Soulseek ;)He posted it before this site added the tracklist.Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.
When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>
@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion kingBest film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)
Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...

8 additional composers! Busy score!


Mike2013-07-17 00:16:40
If I'm not mistaken, the reason there's so many is because Verbinski made some decision that involved the need for the score to be reworked, almost from scratch, in a short time.

It seems Hans likes to take exisiting pieces of music and mixes them instead of writing new music.
Also the main theme is just another version of Jack Sparrow's theme.
I think his last REALLY good score was King Arthur.

The new "Lone Ranger" trailer states: "MUSIC BY HANS ZIMMER" !!!

I thought it was scored by Jack White, but this is AWESOME news!


Macejko2012-12-11 13:08:03
It's a proof that justice exists!


Tim2012-12-11 17:37:51
Yay! Before Hans Jack White was on the notes - at least that's what imbd said at that time ;)


Vordmira2012-12-12 00:19:10
Jack White might sing a theme song for the film which is co-written by Hans Zimmer


Mike2012-12-12 00:28:21
Speaking of films Hans Zimmer will score, did anyone see the newest trailer for Man of Steel? The music sounded very Gladiator-ish, but I don't know if that's what it was.


Mr. Charles2012-12-12 01:49:22
I hear it, Mike. It almost sounds like an alternate version of "Elysium". It's not quite what we hear on the OST. If it's not Gladiator, it's definitely Lisa Gerrard. Without a doubt


Zantlwisder2012-12-12 03:31:10
It's Lisa Gerrard's "Elegy"


tomPoland2012-12-12 13:50:15
it's terrible news - hz is making MoS, he shouldn't involve in something else
no minions, co-writers, and so on - pure Zimmer please, its THE SUPERMAN, no some B class movie


Ds2012-12-12 13:56:59
I think the music we hear in the beginning of the MoS trailer is the same track we heard in Zack Snyder's movie "Legend of the Guardians". Kind of a remix of the Lisa Gerrard song from "Man on Fire".


Ds2012-12-12 14:38:18
No sorry i was wrong, this is definitely "Elegy" by Lisa Gerrard. Sorry!


blu2012-12-12 15:17:39
I am pretty sure master Z can handle this whilst giving MoS the best he can. These guys have never failed to deliver under tight deadlines before.


tomPoland2012-12-12 15:42:06
that's the point - there is no tight deadlines! he has like 7 months to create something memorable, epic, climatic; with orchestra, choir and all that goosebump stuff

taking another project will make MoS worse that it could be, i fear


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-12 15:58:34
You speak like Hans is just starting working on MOS.

You think he was sleeping in the last 5 months ? ;)


Pierre2012-12-12 17:39:06
He's currently recording Man of Steel. That means it's written. Loads of time to work on the Lone Ranger.


Jasper2012-12-12 18:16:46
I honestly think that the coming year is going to be the most exciting Hans Zimmer year in a long time. As far as I know, he'll be doing the soundtracks for 3 major films next year, none of them sequels. All new themes, all new music. Looking forward to an amazing 2013. If the world doesn't end, that is :p


Mike2012-12-12 22:13:12
I'm excited for the same reason, Jasper, but we shouldn't get our hopes too high. Maybe he'll be rushed and we'll have another Curse of the Black Pearl that takes cues from his other movies.

In all seriousness though, I'm really excited. Especially for Man of Steel.


Ds2012-12-12 22:21:48
Man of Steel & Lone Ranger scores will certainly be great, but i think Lone Ranger is more the kind of movie that needs a true fantastic and epic score - the kind of movie for which Hans is the best.


Joshua2012-12-12 22:24:37
Score for Man Of Steel records in mid January. He'll have 5-6 months to work on Lone Ranger.


Mike2012-12-12 22:35:34

Thank you


Jiri W Krecek2011-09-09 05:47:06
THe flying bat song is Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner


S2012-01-01 03:26:32
But the 2.15 bit is actually from 'An der schönen blauen Donau Waltz' composed by Johann Strauss II

@ Bast

The song when Rango walks out in the desert isn't by Zimmer. It's Danny Elfmans song "Finale" from the Movie "The Kingdom" - don't know why they used this one...wasn't Zimmer able to compose a better track?

That little track if i think its the same as what you mean, is kind of a steller reprise of the Rango theme:

The OSt version cuts that piece out and instead uses a banjo intro, while th emovie cuts right to the guitar then that piece, then the end....I found it weird. I dont know who composed it tho.

Trent Easton Navarro reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Norm

Maybe it was used in the temp track and Verbinski really liked it. I thought it fitted the scene perfectly, best piece of music in the entire film. Judging by the rest of the score it's pretty obvious Zimmer wasn't capable to compose something better.

Norm reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Trent

You're right - that track fits the scene perfectly. But if I was the composer for a movie and the director said to me: "Don't Bother - we use the work of another Composer for that scene" I would have worked my ass of the create a track a hundred times better! Just wondered why Zimmer hasn't done that.
