Really want this score!!Do we know if Lorne Balfe will be involved in Dune?  Maybe he could compose the Dune seriesAnd streaming practically dominates how the majority listen to music. Physical media is costly and expensive to manufacture and don't sell very well in stores as everyone prefers to to use Spotify and getting the same album for free. Same goes for movies and TV shows as well with Netflix.For me it's easy.<br>If there is a cd version I buy it. If there is only digital version.....NO<br>I'll pay for music while there are physical format (only cd really). I'm not interested in pay for downloads,Spotify, etcLorne has nothing to do with interstellar
GITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhereI think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.
Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?
Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.

If you want to upgrade the listening experience, I suggest you add "Real in Rio" in the first track place, "Pretty Bird" before "Chained Chase" and "Sapo Cai" after "Birdnapped".
Its the chronogichal order, like on the movie. I didn't care too much for the other songs from the song soundtrack.

Well, i think Powell has returned to its root, making a high quality animation score. I must admit that Mars Needs Moms score was such a disappointment to me, but a bit. Well, he returns anyway.

-Morning routine: Great theme, i mean a great original theme( not that recycled theme from ICEAGE3 that Powell used in MNM.)
-Locked up, Chained chase: a great fast-paced theme( not that recycled style from PAYCHECK that Powell used in MNM)
-Umbrellas rio: had a Brazillian-kind-of-theme, relaxing.
-Motorbike: great, loud, A full brazilian action theme.
-Bird fight: funny fight theme.
-Rio airport: a usual great Powell-ly final-battle theme. I like this kind of theme, so, this is my best track.
-Flying: joyfull track.

I think Powell is great when he deals with a local music instrument. Like in HTTYD, etc. Powell, you're still the masterpiece.

Guys, don't forget to check out the song album too! It contains lots of Powell's material too, specially the ending of "Sapo Cai" ;)

Dominic Lewis seems to have helped John a lot on this one. Was there any particular reason for that?

Sou brasileiro , é um prazer ter um compositor como John Powell em um Filme que se passa no Rio de Janeiro, Powell é um inovador musical, moderno , as trilhas dele sempre tem bons coros, grandes orquestras e tem bastante percução.

I think you can't compare these composers however Powell has proven to be one of the greatest animation composers in history of cinema.

Maybe, but honestly i see John Powell like the legendary Jerry Goldsmith. Giacchino is the successor of Williams.
Only is my opinion :__:
