Its Imagine the Fire insertThe Japanese version can be ordered here: http: //www.cdjapan.co.jp/ product/WPCR-18185<br><br>The "Swan Song" is also included on the CD. So it has 3 additional tracks.Theres quite a bit of good unreleased stuff from this score. Stuff like the cue that plays during Alita's first game of motorball with the other kids, the bar fight music, the unused string rendition of Alita's theme and the end titles arrangement of Motorball/Swan Song.Does anyone have the "Motorball" cue from end credits? It sounds like the beginning of the "Motorball" track but it's different than on the OST. It plays directly after the Swan Song track...<br><br>Why is it left off the CD?Huh... Do people at RCP ask H-Z.com to use the official, less accurate credits in some cases? I seem to recall some credit fiasco on POTC4.
So what happened to the credits here? It used to be a mixture of solo Atli cues with Atli/Dave Fleming, and now all three guys are credited for every track even though Tillman is only listed as a musician? Is this like with Armageddon, where the "official" credits aren't as accurate as the older ones were? :pMost of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.
I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.
Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.

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!!!

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