Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.
'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :PWhat site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.
As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.
Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.

4 out of 5. Although I truly love Zimmer & Balfe's Modern Warfare 2, I thought the Crysis 2 official soundtrack is one of the greatest video game soundtrack ever made. 46 tracks on 2 discs!

Like I said - 3 tracks out of 46. Zimmer score indeed.


Adrian2011-04-25 10:28:38
@ TomPoland

Isn't the front cover very correct about this?


Bondo2011-04-26 20:51:46
Unless my math is off, I count five (5)...


tomPoland2011-05-07 09:23:18
OK, I counted track unlocked during the game. My bad.


Nick2011-10-06 19:24:02
well your all wrong there are 6 tracks total that hans and his team contributed maybe you should pay closer attention before saying something like that in future just a thought.


Prott2011-10-06 19:40:14
Nick: There are around 18 Hans/Lorne/RCP tracks in the final game (nearly every loading screen has a unique track) + Prophet's Journey (trailer) + Insertion (main menu) + another track for the story trailer. .-)


Nick2011-10-08 20:28:18
Prott: Yeah i know that I'm talking about what we got with the cd's because that's what were talking about i know exactly how much in reality he and his team contributed and i know what your saying but thanks i already know as stated.

I'm just a little dissapointed they didn't bother to include a 3rd disc with the rest of the music they did, i mean 6 tracks really..really c'mon La La Land you do great stuff and I'm impressed with the music created by Borislav Slovov and Tilman but c'mon you could of given us the whole package instead of most but oh well.

the insertion and epilougy and the game menu music which was composed by hans is extraordinary and also all of the tracks were abselutly fantastic.

Any word on whether or not Zimmer or Balfe or anyone else will be working on the new CRYSIS 3 game score?

SB reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-09 00:00:00
available for pre-order on itunes for only $3.99!! and there's a tracklist and breakdown of who composed what!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-09 00:00:00
Indeed SB, thanks for the tip!

I'm not gonna post the tracklist here, because Hybrid hates that :P

But for those who want to know, three tracks are credited to Zimmer and the rest (12 tracks) to Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu respectivly. The ones who want to see it for themselves should change their iTunes store to the American one. Of course, you can't buy it there, but you can at least check it.

looks like Hans Zimmer didn't compose that much.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-09 00:00:00
@ al bundy,

Zimmer could have written the themes and helped those other dudes out, that means he's like everywhere. Like Hybrid said earlier, 'it's complicated'. Plus,he is credited to three songs on this compilation, perhaps he wrote more for the game, but the rest isn't included on this disc/ release.

In actuality, the video game score is composed by both Zimmer & Balfe. I hope their music are as epic as Modern Warfare 2.

But his name is on the cover.
-----------------------------------

There's no cover yet, idiot, besides Hans doesn't only compose just the theme....
He compose other music than the theme.
Now..... Shut Up.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-22 00:00:00
Zimmer should refuse this kind of offers. People now belive that Zimmer is composer of the entire thing and Slavov, Askew and Silescu are somewhere in the background. Same as MW2 - Zimmer just direct army of composers but his name is on the cover.

Shame, Mr Zimmer.

Trav reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-22 00:00:00
It seems clear that Slavov and Silescu did every track other than Insertion, Epilogue and the unknown one that plays during the newest trailer called "Dead Men Walking"

Those three tracks all sound very similar and sound very much like Balfes work. I would guess the Game Developers wanted to get Zimmers name attached, so they listed a few tracks as "The Main Theme" so they could do so

Now with all that said, that song from the new trailer.....what is it called? It is so good!!!! I will buy it right now if it's available somewhere

tomPoland reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
Like TRON Legacy - they lent them studio or samples from Balfe's computer and now they saying that Zimmer worked on this one. Impossible, Zimmer or Balfe couldn't do something like Insertion, it's too good.

I wish Zimmer stop putting his hands into everything. Good music defends itself and don't need that RCP PR!

I found this news on squareenixmusic.com: "Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu Take Lead Roles on Crysis 2", here:

http://www.squareenixmusic.com/musicnews2.php?subaction=show full&id=1298071702&archive=&start_from=&ucat=7&

It confirms Slavov and Sillescu as main Crysis2 composers, but at the end it gives a small hint on Zimmer as composer for "the main themes". So Zimmer definitely seems to be involved in the soundtrack.

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-20 00:00:00
Prott is right. Zimmer reinvented himself a LOT, but his style is always the same. Just the arrangement and instrumentation varies.
The gamerip of Crysis 2 does not show any RCP symbols except maybe 1-2 tracks. But most action scores share some similarity with RCP nowadays.
I'm very curious too about this release.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-20 00:00:00
Tim: Yes, Zimmer reinvented himself numerous times, but you can still recognize his style.

I`m curious how this release turns out! :)

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-20 00:00:00
I haven't even heard any bit of this score and I don't want to before the games or the soundtracks official release! Speculations and rumors are a funny thing but I prefer to know what's going on. I mean look at Zimmers work - he has reinvented himself various times. Did anyone of yours expect such surprises like Sherlock Holmes or Inception? Sure, the only thing I have to do is writing a Jablonsky-like piece of very rythmic music heavily focused on bases, cellos and french horns mixed up with cool electronic elements for getting comments like "that sounds very RCP to me"...why can't you just wait? :P

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-20 00:00:00
I think only the first track show some similarities with Zimmer. (the Inception like sound design, and few samples) The rest of the score doesn't sound anything RCP to me. So maybe after the beta got leaked, Crytek got the score rejected, or i don't know, but weird case indeed! :)

hahahaha that was good hybrid :P

but yes, i trust you the most here and i know that you had contact with lorne for this question, but still it's just weird that there are now two parties who fights and say that they are the composers.

The first and last track is Zimmer, i can really hear that, the rest remembers me of Lorne. I don't know about Boris etc, but still the action cues doesn't sound a lot like RCP.

The question is just, WHAT have done RCP here? Just those two tracks? The production maybe? Worked like supervisors? Like with Daft Punk and Tron?

It would be really great to have from both parties now a clarification. It's really weird, like a kindergarden :P No it's my score. Noooooooooo i have composed it. Oh Nooooo it was meeeheheheeeeeee!!!

so what's going on here now. who is the composer? why do boris and campbell say that they are the composers and on the other side the same from zimmer and lorne?

probably just a marketing-thing with zimmers name on the score to sell more and to reach more people :/
