Does Hans compose music for releasing as his own records? I wish he'll make someI think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"<br><br>p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...One last topic I want to cover for this score, and that's the references to past films. I've found quite a few new ones that may be interesting.<br><br>"Today We Hunt" - Reference to "Bumblebee" at the end of the track.<br><br>"History of Transformers" - Reference to "Bumblebee", the end of "Are You Ladiesman 217?", and a sort of rebuilding of the Autobot theme using it's main notes.<br><br>"Two Moons" - Contains the main 2 notes of "Decepticons" repeated through the entire track, and of course elements of "We Were Gods Once".<br><br>"Prime Versus Bee" - Contains the drum beat featured in "Optimus vs Megatron"<br><br>"Your Voice" - Reference to "Optimus", the escalation of notes featured in scenes where Optimus is almost defeated ("Optimus vs Megatron" and the beginning of "I Claim Your Sun"), the 3 notes of "We Were Gods Once" when Optimus is about to be killed, and of course "Arrival to Earth/There Is No Plan".<br><br>"Battlefield" - Basic notes of the end of "You're A Soldier Now" and the Autobot theme in the 3 note horn section.<br><br>"Did You Forget Who I Am" - Autobot theme plays in the build-up before the "You're a Soldier Now" reprise. (Also maybe a hint of "Skorponok" at the end?)<br><br>The rest has already been pointed out on this website.Bring Him Home and Future King are greatThe show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what itís like
2049 is by Ben, confirmed.generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...<br><br>Second half of 1970-forever.@Ben: "Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either."<br><br>The original presentation, of 1994, is not very good to confess. They left out the score to emphasize the songs. However the latest launches "expanded score" and "Legacy Collection" (in my opinion) are among the best as Gladiator, the last Samurai,Prince of Egypt, House of Spirits, Rain Man,<br>Backdraft, regarding Henry,Beyond Ragoon, the Rock, King Arthur, Interstellar, Rush, At worlds End and the Dark Knight (The Collector's version). I like many themes by Hans, but when I come to head the organization factor of the albums most satisfactory these are some of the few that comes to mind.What's the involvement of EW in the Mermaid Suite? I always imagined it that way: Hans being responsible for the first part of the suite, the calmest, Geoff taking care of the piece that corresponds to the moment of the sirens attack and that Eric inserted the choir to finish the composition.In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>
quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesnít seem to be much of the main theme used ?man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.
One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?

Hybrid, do you know who was the cello player on this score? I am pretty sure it's not Martin Tillman. It could be a pleath I guess but would like to know for sure!


Hybrid Soldier2015-07-07 21:27:31
No idea ! No one's credited as musician... Maybe it's Ramin...


...2015-07-07 22:19:37
Ramin plays the cello? I didn't know that, awesome!


Edmund Meinerts2015-07-08 11:00:55
I always assumed it was Ramin himself, although admittedly I've never seen that confirmed anywhere, so whaddo I know. :p


Phil2015-07-08 12:45:59
probably Tina Guo?


H2O2015-07-09 00:57:23
Nope. Not Tina Guo, she just performed her own covers for the Main Theme & The Rains of Castamere. Dunno, may be it's Brandon Campbell who plays the cello.

Just listened it for the first time. I kinda like it, but I gotta listen it a couple more times. Good first impression though!

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 2 || 2011-06-27 18:05:29
Meh.

As a big fan of the books I have to say that Djawadi really didn't (or doesn't have the ability to) live up to the potential that this incredibly intricate storyline offers - dozens of subplots, intriguing characters, it's a really awesome story and the series did it full justice in every aspect EXCEPT for this underwhelming music.

To my ears Djawadi is one of the least impressive composers to come out from under Hans Zimmer's wing. Powell, Harry Gregson-Williams, Rabin, Jablonsky, Mancina, Jackman, Orvarsson, Balfe, Rupert Gregson-Williams, are all much better. I wish one of them could have had this incredible opportunity.

That said, the main theme isn't actually too bad. Kind of catchy. But I hate the synthy sound of the string section and in general it's really underplayed. Thank God the series is so strong it barely even needs a score ;)


Edmund Meinerts2011-06-27 18:06:47
Oh, and Nick Glennie-Smith is better too...:p


Ds2011-06-27 21:27:01
Totally agree!! wonderful main theme but the rest is ambient music without any originality...

D A R T H reply Replies: 1 || 2011-06-16 14:05:26
Ramin Djawadi is not constant, but here, i think it's a very good album with ethnic and medieval sonority...


my note : 4 of 5

HZfan2011-06-14 19:11:29
It's available on iTunes now!!!


Miles2011-06-14 22:02:18
The samples sound pretty good; there's a real emotional core within the music. Nice job, RJ!

My only quibble is that something must have been up with the mixing or whatever: when it moves into the higher or lower registers, there's this static-y background harmonic, but for all I know it could be something different. It's noticable on tracks like "Goodbye Brother" and "Finale".


Bastian Nanchen2011-06-14 22:35:03
Always in iTunes Switzerland...i'm sad !!!
