mpolonest123 Iím glad Iím not the only one who enjoys Jurassic World. It think it pays great tribute to John Williamsí groundbreaking work for the JP franchise, but it also had many exciting and creative motifs that made the score stand out in my mind.As for Pan, I initially wasnít impressed at all with the music. It took about a year for it to sink in and let me fall in love with the themes.@mrzimmerfan<br>Yeah, I definitely disagree. When I was watching Rogue One in theaters I kept getting taken out of the film because of the music, which isnít something that I normally pay attention to when I watch movies. <br><br>And I know it gets criticized a lot, but I honestly love Jurassic World. The flat recording sound aside, I think itís an intelligent score that does something new the franchise material while still paying tribute. Even Homecoming has grown on me, particularly Vultureís theme.@Ds: i'm not a big fan for Pan, i liked the score, but Powell have MUUUCH better action/fantasy scores."Pan" was also a replacement score, and look at the marvelous Powell score we got... However I don't know how long he had to score it. Certainly a bit more time than what Giacchino got for Rogue One.
The action music is flat in Rogue One?, agree if the score isn't as good as Jupiter Ascending, for example, but the action music is BETTER than Spider-Man or Jurassic World.<br><br>IMHOAlso new Harry Gregson-Williams score out today! Breath.To be fair, Giacchino didnít have much time to work on Rogue One, which explains why certain portions (coughactionmusiccough) fell flat. Itís not a bad score at all, but yeah, John Powell is above and beyond a better composer. His recordings have life and energy, and while most of it still sounds like Powell, he is able to switch into Williams mode so easily.<br><br>In defense of Giacchino though, just go listen to Jupiter Ascending if you want a score on the same level as this. The action music is phenomenal, there are at least a dozen solid themes, and the recording doesnít seem as flat as some of his other scores.I think Powell found his niche with this score...<br>Because he's WAY better at apeing Williams than Giacchino could ever be, and with way more energy....<br><br>And here Giacchino prides his work on Williams from his origins in video game music... <br><br>This blows Giacchino out of the ocean and into the moon. This surprises me, as I expected Giacchino to have such  huge hard-on for Williams.Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer, <br>Hallo Hans,<br>  <br>ich habe einige ihrer Konzerte gesehen, Prag jedoch, war wirklich, ich kann es nicht in Worte fassen, unglaublich. Top Musiker und eine super performance!<br>Ihre Musik ist eine Inspiration.<br>Hoffentlich hŲren wir noch viele StŁcke von Ihnen...<br><br>Hochachtungsvoll und liebe GrŁŖe<br>Stefan
Yeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great scoreHe is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.
John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lolim surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)

@Prott & Ele
How should we call the page? Lorne Balfe fan club, something like that?

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-19 00:00:00
Yup, it's fine :)

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-19 00:00:00
just need a proper photo of Lorne! Any advise?!

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-19 00:00:00
btw Group or Page?

I`m really starting to be a big fan of Lorne Balfe... :-D the trailer sounds great as well (E3-2010 Cinematic Trailer).

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Hey, Hybrid, i have a question, which trailer of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has Lorne composed the music for?

Is it the E3 Trailer with 2:41 Min?

Sorry if the question is at the wrong place, but the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood trailer section is blocked.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Tim: I agree, however his style isn`t so easly recognizable as HGW`s or Powell`s style .. yet :-) (HGW`s or Powell`s first solo scores were also much close to RCP sound).
Ele: No problem .. we should make a proper facebook fan-made page for Lorne! :-D
I have a feeling he`s going to get a lot of new fans in following months.

@Prott
oooh yeah :D I'm so curious about his next projets! Crysis 2 is gonna be awesome!! Ironclad is gonna be excellent!! He's very original, more than Ramin Djawadi or Steve Jablonsky (which is not difficult, great composers,though). He is more on that HGW/John Powell level of awesomeness :)

Tim: You too? :-D

wow thanks for this hybrid. i'm hearing it right now at youtube, but it's a 14 minutes cue. until now i'm speechless, what a beauty there.

Man Lorne is the most talented person from Zimmers team now. Love every work from him. Hope to hear many more from him!!!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Yeah I see Lorne put it on youtube 2 days ago ! Very cool ! :)

Well he edited it a little bit to fit "under" 15 min... :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Wow, this cue is fantastic!

Love that "Sherlockesque" part with Aleksey's vocal !!! ;)

One question to you Hybrid. I see some video by Lorne on youtube. There are some signed as Oswim Mackintosh. Who is that? Is it Lorne's some kind of nickname? I checked extreme music site to find more by Lorne, but there's no Lorne, there's only Oswim. It makes me think Lorne=Oswim. Is it true?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Yeah it's an alias... Oswin Mackintosh is indeed Lorne !

Don't ask me why, he didn't answer that !! lol

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
what i'm liking most at lorne is, that he is searching the contact to the people. you know hans is such a talented musician, but he's not that open to public. and lorne gives you information, cues that will never been released, or like iron clad one month earlier on the webradio etc.

it is really like a fresh wind in RCP and that's great. seriously i'm hoping to hear a lot more from him in the future and hopefully he will be like this also in the future!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
john there's a counterpart to that : when it's about Hans and the scores with Hans, he doesn't say much... And he's quite afraid of official interviews actually !! :D

I've tryied (me & others... Kaya ? lol) to make him do an interview for Megamind, and let's say that... well... I didn't retry for Ironclad !!! LOL

Off the record he's really cool indeed, though I remember at the beginning (nearly a year & a half ago, when I was harassing him to release Modern Warfare 2 & Crying With Laughter, which he did in the end ! :)) he was almost "mute" ! So it's not THAT easy ! lol

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
I knew it :D I advice you then: go to the extrememusic website. Browse Director's Cut album, and listen to all so called "Oswim Mackintosh" cues. They are amazing!

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
@Hybrid: we should be so happy to have you here and having you as the "brick" between the fans and the composers. It's really so much fun to read here all those insider infos. So thank you so much for your work! :)

And yes, i can understand when they are sometimes "mute" hehe :P
But i have just a feeling that when you ask Lorne "hey lorne, how about a recording session of this movie?", he would just answer "yeah why not, I'll do it". :P

And as for Hans, yeah, the big diva :D Like you said in the past, when you asked for some extended versions or bootlegs or recording sessions, he knows nothing about them and don't even want to hear that. But sure, he's the boss there and he has soooo many projects going on, so it's understandable when he don't want to take the time for some expanded releases.

But that is why it's so great to have composers like Lorne where you really can get in contact with him.
That is also what I'm liking with Mr Badelt. Such a friendly man and so polite. But too bad, he isn't anymore in this team.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Ha, it`s great to hear so many different styles in just under 15 minutes (It`s like RCP-history timelapse). :-)

It looks like it was recorded the way MW2 was (sampled orchestra with a few solo instruments recorded live), but the overall sample quality is much better. Does RCP made another sample library upgrade? :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Indeed, the overall sound is better, even though its sampled. Maybe they really made sample upgrade? Because I don't think that this short movie had orchestra at all.

I guess I become a Lorne fanboy at the moment! :D
