It’s a pretty badass mix of 300, Mad Max, and some epic choral portions.Yeah,pretty goodHave you guys ever listened to anything Tom did in Nederland before saying it's "different" ? :PFrom what I've seen the score sounds so different because Antonio heavily worked on it (as almost every track is on his soundcloud, or was at one point).

Actually, I prefer BB2 more than Pearl Harbor, thanks!<br><br>There is a quite of the trademark style of Tom in this, his percussion, synths and brassBay should work with Jerry Bruckheimer again. Except Bad Boys 2 (which was way too long) they made really entertaining films together.@Mark<br>You composed this?  It's pretty damn solid work, man.<br><br>Not sure if I hear a whole lot of 90's Zimmer in there, at least not until the last couple minutes.  If anything it gives me modern Lorne Balfe vibes.  But it's not a bad execution of that sound.  Far from it.<br><br>Could just be me.  I'm curious how the more attuned ears around here feel about it.Not bothering with any more of your bullshit.  This already gets down to the crux of the issue.<br><br>"Look at your first comment here, pal. Look at it good! Snarky, dismissive, almost trollish, and with a clear intention to provoke people."<br><br>You chose to take a comment whose only direct provocation was at Bay himself, as a direct insult to YOU.<br><br>Despite the fact that Bay and his work were the only things mentioned, despite the fact that those were the only things being dissed, you chose to take it as an attack against YOU.  <br><br>And when I elaborated on my full opinion, and even capped it off with a "you do you" olive branch, you chose to take it as me "unleashing my true self."<br><br>That speaks volumes about your mindset.<br><br>Y'know, we could keep talking and going in circles like this.  <br><br>We could talk about how you keep staking the worth of Bay as filmmaker on how much money he's made (and how much less money action films I considered better made) and then turning around and claiming "B-b-but I didn't say box office was a sign of quality!"  <br><br>We could talk about how 300 wasn't trying to start a franchise and how you keep pulling that uncited lie out of your ass to write off its merits under the very faint guise of "objectivity."<br><br>But that'd all be beside the point.<br><br>That point being, how people can only shit on a director according to your arbitrary standards, and how your inherent obsession with "disproving" them or "giving them what they deserve" or whatever self-serious crap you've concocted inside your head is dogmatic fanboyism at BEST.<br><br>Nice day indeed.
LOL @ 1/5 star rating, before release.<br><br>Good job, Internet.You should credit Trapanese wherever there is an orchestral prescence in the cues as he handled all the arranging and orchestration.I know what you mean. When I listen to this, I basically hear a Hans & Lorne score with some DP stylings.<br><br>It's fairly frustrating for me, as I'm big on proper crediting; I neither want to give anyone undue credit, nor fail to give credit. With this one, honestly, my only strong intuition is that DP did almost nothing.There's not much besides the general consensus that Joseph Trapanese did a lot of the heavy lifting with DP's ideas (though they still contributed a fair bit). Toby Chu doing "Adagio For TRON" is about it, unless you do count the cues that were once listed on JT's website.<br><br>Quite frankly, I'm still having a hard time believing the duo stayed on a project that apparently was primarily managed by someone else. These are guys that have always stressed to have full creative control on their albums and ventures, so to hear that they weren't really driving the wheel here sounds off to me. It certainly would explain why they haven't done a score since, but hey. I probably won't ever know the full story.Good question. I honestly get the sense this largely scored to picture, given how varied the cues are, plus the fact Hans did the Day of the Dead and Tuesday cues alone.<br><br>The Batman Suite itself almost sounds like it was done after the score itself was composed, but I could definitely be wrong about that.<br><br>By the way, pretty fucking cool Hans did all (six?) of the themes on this. IMO that goes a long way to show he can still do really solid thematic work when he wants to.

As to Rango Returns being a 100% copy of Pirates, you couldn't be more wrong. This is an amalgam of Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West and For a Few Dollars More. Don't believe me?

Actually the Finale track is like 6 minutes long, so if you love that track you're in luck - the actual track is longer than the version used in the film....awesomeness.

FYI the defeated lizard track mentioned here is not a Zimmer composition...But a Danny Elfman one, from the 2007 the Kingdom score...

Why its in this movie I have no idea, but wow...nice fit.

@ Mr.VFX: just saw the movie, this piece of music isn't on the soundtrack. But I think it's the only remarquable cue that has been forgotten on the album.

Btw it's an amazing movie, i wanna see it again and again!

I've just seen the film in a press screening an I have to say:
This is what cinema was made for - it's brilliant!
I only enjoyed the really good animated films like "Wall-E" or "How to train your dragon" and now I love "Rango". It's different, it's clever writing, it's looking absolutely exquisite and children are not the target group!

The soundtrack is a lovely and playful hommage to Morricone and classic themes. Hans created the perfect music to a great film. Especially the track, when Rango has to leave the city as a tragic, defeated lizard and he walks through the desert by night is Hans Zimmer as his best. Great composition, elegant arrangement - so beautyful and sad!

Does anyone knows which track it is on the CD?

Okay so Rango isn't a masterpiece. It's still very good, and I'm sure Hans didn's spend very long on it like he does his big projects. Look at Sherlock Holmes. Brilliant piece of work that took 7 months. Same with Inception 6 months or so. I think Pirates 4 will be a great score as he's been working on it for 4-5 months. Then that leaves the rest of the year for Sherlock Holmes 2. If you look at the previous sequels Hans has done (Dead Man's Chest or Dark Knight) he puts a lot of work into making sure that they excel even more than the original (not like HGW for example with shrek and narnia where the first score was always the best). So I'm confident that he'll put out two brilliant scores this year, with Rango and Kung Fu Panda 2 being nice little bonuses. Although with Powell working on the latter, it's sure to be fantastic!

So what? Who said that composer have to write 6 scores a year? Look at 1998 - Thin Red Line and Prince of Egypt. 2 masterpieces. Now he's involved in 6 projects and I bet he'll be helping others in their work. What for? For money, Hans???

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that "Underground" is by Geoff Zanelli. It starts off with his trademark wind-instrument sound, and has a dark Zanelli-ish sound to it.

Sherlock Holmes with a little Mexican accent - nothing original. Best parts are those with dialogues. Although Wagner on banjos is quite nice.

I miss Zimmer from 20th century...

Jo: I don`t think we can judge the score as a whole just by this OST. If the movie has at least 80 minutes of score (which I think isn`t anything special these days), then there are tons of unreleased cues. .-)

Jo reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-23 00:00:00
LOL @ Rango Returns. If the scene in the movie is similar to the Pirates one, I'll LOVE the whole idea of it.

I understand that many of you say it has Pirates and Sherlock in it. I'm just glad I didn't read those comment before I heard the music - Pirates and SH are two of my most favourite Hans soundtracks EVER. And clearly Rango could never come in light years range of that.

I still think that Hans and animated movies are not meant to be, it's cool if it's fun for him, but I'll never be excited for one of those. With that said, I think Rango is good enough for a Hans animated film score - especially since it sounds so weird, what with all the other film soundtracks that come to your mind. I dont think Hans 'copies' out of lack of creativity. I will believe it fits the theme of the film. Rango seems to "pay tribute" to other films so maybe the music should do the same :P

@ Adrian,

I know, you are right. It was probably a decision between Verbinski and Zimmer to homage Morricone. They both seem to love his music. And I can't blame them, Morricone is full of awesome.
However I always thought that the sound of the POTC scores in general was always more appropiate for an epic western than for a pirate film. For example, "He's a Pirate" evoques my mind with images of a cowboy shooting bad guys in the desert rather than pirates swordfighting.
Sherlock has the same feel too. Even the orchestration of the main theme has more in common with the western tradition than with detective stories.

Despite that, Hans did a refreshing job bringing new styles to genre movies. He proved that the pirates not always need a Korngoldian approach, musically speaking.

However, I would love to hear Hans do a proper western in his own way. It could be amazing.

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-22 00:00:00
John, Zimmer is possibly keeping that "Proper Western" score idea for Verbinski's "Lone Ranger". Why waste it on some soon-to-be-forgotten animated film? =)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
the theme in this score, starts at 2.23 in the rango suite and is reprised in rango and beans.

It sounds very like something by ennio morricone, but I can't remember exactly. Does anyone know which morricone work it is?

I can't decide if it's a direct lift or just similar chord progressions. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

Great score btw.

For anyone whose interested, the dialogue comes in at key points, mainly with the mexican band of owls used in the trailers, and occassionally from Rango. I really didn't find it to be an issue at all. Sets the scene without the need for the movie. Anyone whose been ranging at it, try EQing it out, see how well that turns out :P

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
- Rango suite: sounded like a mix between sherlock holmes and pirates. Where is your creativity now, Hans?
- We ride, really: sounded like John Powell's HTTYD score(0:11-0:17 part) and pirates( again ). Same question. You know what Hans, you teach someone that will beat you.
- Bats: A good combination of many classical themes. But, still bad because i want to hear a new theme for this kind of scene.

Overall, decent. Too many copying-from-previous-soundtrack-that-only-zimmer-can-do
I hope you can do better on Pirates.

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
In the first place, "Parlay" is a homage to Morricone's "Once Upon a Time in the West". So as Rango is a western parody, it makes more sense here.

I wonder who's fault it is that on Zimmer his CD's are so short in playtime and that the best action cues are always left off or are bonus tracks.

Is it his decision? Or the movie studio...

Cause most other composers (RCP or not) usually give a full album representation of their music in the film these days. And not just some 'extracts'.

And the worst part is that no expanded scores of him leak like in the good old days cause those where the best...
