Jackman has always been my favorite of his "generation" of RC composers (in which I also include Balfe, Djawadi, ÷rvarsson, Margeson and Streitenfeld - the ones who broke out about a decade ago). I think he's the best orchestral writer other than Powell and I always appreciate the clean, organic sound of his scores - like with Powell's scores, Jackman's orchestra always sounds real and clearly distinct from the electronics, unlike Balfe and Zimmer himself who use samples a lot more and blur things in the middle. That's true even of scores of his I don't like, such as Winter Soldier.<br><br>I do wish he'd stop stripping the electronics off of tracks for his album releases though. That seems like a strange way to address the criticisms he got for Winter Soldier - kind of missing the point.Any plans for a concert in Denmark (Boxen, Herning) ?I like this score!!!<br><br>Henry is very good in my opinion. I always liked his scores even when others didn't.<br><br>And I'm really excited for Jumanji: The Next Level!!!Neither Romer or Balfe are scoring Bond 25I want to say that test screening version of Ghost in the Shell deleted one geisha character who was under orders of Cutter to follow the Major  and in the original third act, she fought Aramaki when he stormed into Cutter's Holo room after killing his guards. Aramaki survives and the scene continues as shown. Because of the poor reception of what I call "The Philosophical Cut", the geisha character was removed and there were quick reshoots of all of  the conversations between Cutter and Aramaki minus the geisha character involvement.
The report about Romer leaving wasn't even confirmed, so I think it's just people wanting the expected to happen at this point.lol no heís notLast week, the IMDb page said Joseph Trapanese is scoring it and next week some other composer will probably be listed there. Amazing that some people still think of IMDb as a reliable source for this kind of info.More Cannons!, 2:14 - Jack Sparrow theme from PotC?Ramin Djawadi will compose The Eternals
Well, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.This is Balfeís best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we donít get to hear much I think.<br>Itís been interesting reading posts about Balfe doing Bond.Has he confirmed yet if he is ?Why would I ever do that ?<br><br><br>Tracklist is the real one... -_-New trailer for the Sonic movie.<br>https://youtu.be/szby7ZHLnkAIs there any chance of a concert in London?
i mean, the page, would you update with the tracklist posted years ago?What.Un artiste qui a une force mais d'une puissance ! Bravo depuis la France !@Hybrid would you update the complete score with the new tracklist? Thankswhat happened here?. Track 4 Bunker Bust and Track 14 River mission are the exact same track. The game itself has a couple of good themes that didn't make it onto the album.

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...

Hey guys stop putting that bootleg track in here !! It's a game rip !

And Robert, I've got reliable sources too ! ;)

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
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.

I did ask Lorne if EA brought some of its insiders in... He just told me to wait for the OST credits cause it's a bit "complicated" !! :P

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.

Well, I will still tag it as Lorne Balfe only, the same as MW2, considering that he did majority of the score.

Gatterboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-15 00:00:00
As far as I know, Zimmer and Balfe did only a few tracks for the game, the rest was composed by internal Crytek composers.
