I just rewatch the show and i think this is mostly chronological, but there is some suites like Dr Ford we can ear in episode 3,4 6 9 etc. <br>So this is hard to say chronological or not. By the way, lots of variations of Dr Ford aren't on the album, but obviously we can have the whole score on a CD.<br>Did you know if Ramin even release a complete score from his tv show?Does anybody know a chronological order?? I tried myself but I can't work it out.Any news about Hans Next project?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 it’s like2049 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 doesn’t 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?

Hybrid, when you upload Harry's Music??

HeyYOU reply Replies: 13 || 2011-07-29 16:20:37
So I listened to the entire score, not that impressed to be honest. Don't see why the fans rating is so high...


kaka2011-07-29 16:26:48
I agree. Im gonna have to stop taking my sources seriously...I dont wanna go back and say Wolverine score, but...like that score, I found one or 2 tracks that are ok, while the rest of it just slides into obscurity for me...


Matteo2011-07-29 17:25:44
it's a copy-past from Wolverine :S


kaka2011-07-29 20:42:12
Sadly...It sure as hell sounds like it. I caught underscore from Man on Fire. And when Harry brings up Man in Fire in his score, you know it's being phoned in.



Matteo2011-07-29 21:36:28
i would like that harry return to his old style...like Armageddon,Broken Arrow...The Rock....sadly :(


HGW42011-07-30 00:36:48
I don't understand you guys...it is a great score. You complain that you hear elements from his other scores...obviously...that is why it is a Harry Gregson-Williams score. All composers use the same motifs in their compositions. That is why you can listen to a score and know who composed it without reading the credits. Its quite obvious. The same is true for the greats: Mozart, Beethoven...I believe this is an excellent score. Too bad you guys can't enjoy things that are wonderful.


kaka2011-07-30 19:47:09
you call this wonderful? Ok.


Drake2011-07-31 00:59:47
I agree as well. Harry hasn't written a really good score since Narnia and Kingdom of Heaven. The only good tracks were Jake Lonergan/See You Around, and Return to the Cabin.


kaka2011-07-31 01:19:27
LOL you're giving it less credit than I did...I counted at least 5 tracks - Lonergan, Dolarhyde, See You around, Return to Cabin, and lastly...Do You Remember Me.

FYI I only picked the final tracks because they all sound like they belong together and transition well, while I only picked Dolarhyde because its the secondary theme to the film aside from Lonergan...But as a whole? This is Wolverine all over again.


Drake2011-07-31 03:26:24
lol I found Dolarhyde a pretty good track.

The reason I'm being pretty harsh on this is probably because i was hoping for a little more "Western flair' to it, kind of like Greg Edmundson's score for the TV show Firefly (also a space-cowboy genre). Not a copy/paste of Wolverine.


kaka2011-07-31 04:20:48
Yeah...the only Western Flair i got from this score was the beginning theme and the ending theme. This seems tobe the one case where just because you add acoustic guitar to a temo score does nto make it Western. At least Trevor Rabin had the decency to give us some BANJO with his American Outlaws Score, dammit! And I hates that score!


Snake 2011-08-01 07:58:38
Even though I like this score, kaka is right; some samples are taken from Wolverine. But this isn't strange for Hans Zimmer's apprentices. An example; Steve Jablonsky and his all Transformers scores; he uses all samples from that Gregson-Williams and Zimmer use or used and fans still like his works. Another examples; Hans Zimmer and his Pirates of the Caribbean scores and finally Harry Gregson-Williams and all his music composed for Tony Scott's films, they use the same samples from previous works in the past and fans like them.

So kaka, if you complain about this score, then you will keep complaining about future scores from any composer because everybody does it. John Williams, Harry Gregson-Williams, Steve Jablonsky, Ramin Djawadi or even Hans Zimmer. And fans or non-fans like their work. And if you keep complaining, then stop listening to film scores and start to listen another music genre that sounds different to you.


kaka2011-08-01 15:55:32
"So kaka, if you complain about this score, then you will keep complaining about future scores from any composer because everybody does it."

Nice logic but thats not excuse for unoriginality. Hey if you like this bland, uninspiring pile of HGW staple that's you. I expect much better.

Oh another disappointed score from Harry. Only 2 tracks worth listening to. Whats happening to harry gregson ?? Considering how the other composers of RCP are performing, i feel its high time Harry gregson had some real good scores in his folio.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-08-09 13:21:45
Disappointing it may be, but it's still better than the horrible bland scores Ramin Djawadi and all the other minions at RCP write. This score at least has something of it's own personality, unlike say Clash of the Titans, Iron Man, Ironclad or Transformers - which all sound interchangeable.


Ds2011-08-09 14:02:18
you're right for Clash of the Titans or Iron Man, but Ironclad and Transformers have their own personality!


Booku Marksman2011-08-09 15:37:18
NOt really. Take a listen to Djawadi's Fright Night. Its got more personality in that one minute preview than all of Harry's Score.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-08-09 17:42:44
Well, I must have heard a different preview then, cause the one I heard sounded as generic as everything else Djawadi has composed.


Booku2011-08-09 21:50:16
if you're talking the Varese sample, then you got me...I dont know you be listenin to, bro


Vishagh2011-08-14 07:24:51
As for the Transformer, i have felt that was one of the best scores during that year considering the genre of the movie. You are right abt the minors in RCP trying to imitate the typical style.

Aaron Edwards reply Replies: 0 || 2011-08-08 01:14:52
So, I don't understand why everyone is bashing this score so much. Trust me, I'm the first person to have a go at Gregson Williams. I'm so not a fan. But you know, this score is actually not bad. The acoustic guitar work throughout is really nice, and listening to the more down and emotional stuff, very nicely orchestrated, nice chord choices... seriously I'm really liking it (shock horror, I've never said that about a Gregson Williams score).

zahnmimres reply Replies: 0 || 2011-07-30 12:52:01
Well...it's not as impressive as I have expected it to be yet it's still enjoyable. "Jake Lonergan" "Alien Air Attack" "Ella’s Mission" are my favorite 5-star tracks. If I have to rate it, it will be somewhere between PRINCE OF PERSIA and WOLVERINE.
P.S. For composer's similarity, I think I can hear some PRINCE OF PERSIA in this too :P

Unknown reply Replies: 0 || 2011-07-30 00:56:28
Oh my god is this music boring. NO Western elements, only country elements and too much synthesizer.... no this is the badest score, I've hear in this year.

Is this gonna be on itunes? & when is release date?


Dakota2011-07-26 01:14:53
It should be released on iTunes by midnight. Today is the 25th. It's being released on the 26th, is it not?


Dingoutback2011-07-26 01:55:34
Looks like the physical album is being released on 8/16/11. That could be the release date for the download album as well. We will find out by tomorrow.


kaka2011-07-26 02:52:01
Don't forget Super 8 came out and the website shows the cd isnt shipping until August...so maybe.


Dakota2011-07-26 03:11:51
Damnit, I hate Varese. They release their albums so late. It sucks


Anonymous2011-07-26 06:14:44
guess not :/


kaka2011-07-26 06:28:09
Eh...Maybe next week.


HGW42011-07-27 00:18:16
It was to be released today, but they recently pushed back the date about a week ago...very frustrating. Why they play these games I don't think we will ever know!


Anonymous2011-07-27 00:34:41
so now when does it come out on itunes?


kaka2011-07-27 01:47:48
well...going by that logic, perhaps they intend to release it next tuesday, since it was pushed back a week forward from this tuesday...possible/ssibly


Dakota2011-07-27 03:45:35
Like I said, I hate Varese. F-ing hate them. I wouldn't be surprised if they push it back till August/September. They played this game several times with the season 2 soundtrack for Fringe. 3 that's right, 3 different times they changed the date. January to February to April to May. It's ridiculous.


kaka2011-07-27 05:33:18
Maybe someone should contact them and ask? Super 8 still listed as a release date in August, and it's out...So who knows


Bou2011-07-27 10:56:15
Dakota , instead of "f...ing hating Varese" only for their release dates : as every other company they haven't a total control of what the majors having the rights of the music want to do : you should be happy and praise them to release titles such as those "Cowboys.." and the Powell , the Rabin ...etc
Stupid post of the day!


kaka2011-07-27 13:08:10
lol @ patronizing attitude here. You guys arent gonna fight over this now are you? Score can still come out next week ya know...


Trent Easton Navarro2011-07-27 18:43:15
@ Dakota

Patience friend, patience. Be glad that labels like Varese exist, instead of hating them. They released a lot of classic scores. Probably 1/3 of my soundtrack collection are Varese releases, so they are doing something right.


kaka2011-07-27 19:42:47
movie reviews say the score is hands down one of the best this year, so I guess i'd be as excited as Dakota over there...I'd say give them some credit - they did release Super 8 ahead of cd release schedule, they might do the same thing again with this one....Im crossing my fingers for Itunes.


Dakota2011-07-27 21:54:28
Guys, chill. I understand what your saying about them releasing stuff at all, to which I am very grateful. But the circumstances are different when it comes down to the release of Fringe season 2. 3 different times the release date was changed. 3. Yes it's out now but when you get excited over a release and after the 2nd time you find out it's delayed only for them to delay it yet again, it's frustrating. Someone must understand where I'm coming from. And I'm very much looking forward to this score. John Favreau's last collaboration from RCP was Iron Man, and I think that is a fantastic score despite want some people think of it. I love Harry's music.


kaka2011-07-27 22:07:46
I agree Dakota. I heard it's pretty good...


Dakota2011-07-27 23:18:31
Well thanks, glad someone agrees with me. I hope it's good. I hope what you're saying about it being one of the best of the year is true. I think it could be great. Hopefully some western themes mixed with some totally awesome alien-esque themes. The idea for this movie is genius. I love westerns and I love aliens. I think it will be really good, both the film and the score


kaka2011-07-28 00:11:25
well, based off the official website, which has a sneak of the score, it sounds as if Gregson Williams took a listen to the trevor Rabin's American Outlaws score and said "Screw that. I'm not doing it that way!" and went ahead and did it better.

But anyway, movie reviewers say it's one of the best this year so far. But is it pretty good as in "a Remote Control Productions score", or a "Harry Gregson Williams score"? Don't really know yet. We already know Harry has the tendency to plagiarize himself, which is why I tend to avoid most of his music post Man on Fire (80% of Wolverine was abysmal), but it sounds decent so far and Im pumped to hear his first "Western" score. Fingers crossed for next Tuesday...


Going For Gold2011-07-28 03:13:42
Btw Harry's first western score was for 'Seraphim Falls' back in 2006.


kaka2011-07-28 04:12:23
it is? i couldnt tell.

I already checked the credits on the album and there too many missing credits:
- Martin Tillman (cello) (as usual as part Harry Gregson-Williams' team)
- Costa Kotselas (Music Engineer)
- Anthony Lledo (Guitar)
- Toby Chu (Programming)
- Hugh Marsh (violin)
- Meri Gavin (Music Editor or Assistant)
- Malcolm Luker (Score Mixer)
- Richard Whitfield
- Jamie Luker

I think Heitor Pereira is involved too but that's something I'm really not sure. But you can use this information to include them in the credits.

I really hope you guys to use this.

kaka2011-07-12 00:48:30
Varese is releasing it 7/26....Although I have to admit painfully that Harry's music hasn't really been all that great since his "Man on Fire" days...Since then his music all seems to sound the same (at least to me)

Its available for preorder and probably will be on Itunes soon enough, I guess. But if it sounds like his typical rehashed music I may not bother...


HGW42011-07-14 18:17:53
