(albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.
I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>You fools, the tracklist was but a scam. The tracks simply wanted to EAT you.
Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.<br><br>I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.<br><br>I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.Not to disagree for its own sake, but I think Powell has been up there with the greatest film composers since the first HTTYD score. I just wish he'd take on more projects.Yeah, Jesus. This is a prime example of why I'm tempted to think John Powell is more talented than even Williams (yes, I went there).There's so, so many great themes in the HTTYD scores. And he almost never lets a moment go by where he isn't stating or restating or developing one or more of them (although honestly that's true of a ton of Powell's scores and not an exclusive feature of HTTYD). You can never get bored listening to these, there's always something interesting around the next corner.I got confirmation HGW only wrote Haitian House Shootout (with the help of Mel Wesson). The same ideas were edited into the shorter cue Zoepound, so I'd say you can add this one to his credits.<br><br>Credits on IMDB mentions Paul Linford on the Main Titles.<br><br>Trevor Morris helped Jablonsky on the Ferrari Causeway Chase.<br>Jablonsky worked, for sure, on the Hallway and Helicopter Inserts.<br><br>100% sure Rabin worked on Tapia, Tapia Pissed Off, The Stuff, Wiretap Results, Ocean, Dead Bodies #2, Heart to Heart, Breaking Into Mortuary, Syd's Cover Is Blown, Tapia Has Syd (without Inserts), Prep for Tapia Sneak, Cuba Chase, Guantanamo (those tracks are on the Rabin only-bootleg).
Hoping for the Rocketman score to get a release. Loved the score in the movie. Any updates on this ?Additionally, for anyone interested, I've managed to come up with a final list of themes from the series that I believe to be mostly accurate.<br><br>HTTYD 1: Hiccup & Toothless, The Friendship ostinato, Viking Theme, Viking "B" Theme, Dragons, Berk, The Dragon Tamer (Hiccup's unique qualities), Vikings & Dragons, Astrid<br><br>HTTYD 2: Loss, Exploration/Hiccup's Maturance, Drago, Hiccup & Valka, The Alpha, Stoick & Valka, The Chief<br><br>HTTYD 3: The Furies ostinato, Love, The Dragon Liberators, Moving On, The Hidden World, Toothless & The Light Fury, Grimmel, Dragon Trappers<br><br>A list more impressive than Star Wars, and with almost every new theme returning for the next film, while keeping most of the base themes. A masterful achievement by John Powell and his crew, as others have said!Just finished watching the movie, and while it's not much more than fine, it's sure as hell better than every other Star Wars movie that's come out since The Force Awakens (minus the ugly fucking visuals). <br><br>However the score is absolutely amazing. Powell's adaptation and development of the new Han Solo theme from Williams is flawless, the callbacks to other themes from the series are mostly appropriate (and good on him for not using the Force theme once!) and Powell's original material is fresh and exciting in a way that even Williams himself hasn't been able to pull off with the new films. <br><br>Powell might very well be up there with the greatest film composers if he continues to produce work like this from now on (which from HTTYD 3 seems very possible!)Some of the synth work throughout is definitely like Spirit. The first couple minutes of Coda are one example.It's only suggestions based on about few dozen listened scores of those composers.<br>By the way known that HGW was part of it.

WHEN?!?!?

He made AWESOME work at the MW2 Soundtrack so I have HUGE expectations with this one.
I recently saw "The Dilemma" and the Soundtrack was the style what all people know from Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe.

Keep up with the good work!!

"Contrary to earlier reports, the developer diary confirms that the majority of the music for Crysis 2 was composed by Borislav Slavov (aka Bobby Glorian) and Tilman Sillescu. After they both applied to score the game, Crytek's senior audio director Campbell Askew asked to work together to achieve a versatile and high quality score. The pair communicated on almost a daily basis to brainstorm and develop ideas, in what Slavov describes as a very enjoyable and revealing process."

Who composed these 42 tracks??

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
"On Crysis 2, Zimmer determined the overall musical direction and produced a range of major themes. However, it has been reported that his employee Lorne Balfe of Remote Control Productions handled much of the rest of the music. This production approach echoes that of Zimmer's video game debut, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. In addition, Zimmer worked closely with the team at Crytek to optimise the score. Notably, British musician Graeme Norgate of GoldenEye and TimeSplitters fame is the audio director for the title, having become part of Crytek after they bought Free Radical Design. It appears that the original composer of Crysis, Inon Zur, was not involved with the sequel."

I hate do disapoint you guys, but this info here is incorrect / incomplete..

I heard from a reliable source that Hans Zimmer actualy did only the Main theme of the score and Lorn did the Epilogue. Rest of it was composed by other composers...

Robert: There are quite a few other tracks that sounds like Hans Zimmer`s work (Morituri for example) + I think it`s safe to say that when you hear RCP samples, it`s from RCP (The End of Beginning, etc.). :-)

On the other hand - there are tracks which does sound different.

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
I'm a fan of Zimmer since '95, I have like 50 albums from him, and I didn't find any similarities with this score and his other workds. Hey even MW2 had 'that' Zimmer sound even if he only composed the main themes.
Crysis 2 has 1 or 2 cues that sound near Zimmer, but 90% of it could be anyone outside RCP.
Nice score though. :)

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
@Feared: You shouldn't be ashamed because I have that same 42-track rip. However, I have to strongly disagree with you about the sound of the score. It is very RCP and is actually a very good score. After Modern Warfare 2 I though Zimmer could never top himself in the videogame genre, but here Zimmer may have. While there isn't an exact theme you will go away humming, the scale and scope of the score is absolutely epic and the orchestrations are really well done. I listened to the nearly hour and half score all the way through last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hans Zimmer is truly one of the most versatile composers ever.

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
Why should i be shamed?
Yes I listened to that rip, and if it"s fromt he game, than it's the OFFICIAL score.
When the LLL edition will be out I'll buy it for sure, but it does not sound anything RCP to me.
