Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

This is a fantastic album! Every track is great.


Anonymous2013-05-30 22:36:58
Lorne Balfe is quickly becoming one of the best composers around if you ask me. :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-30 22:52:30
That's funny cause I listened Skylanders 1 & 2 today. I find 2 to be a MUCH better album. Can't wait for 3... :)


Mike2013-05-30 23:07:01
I've yet to listen to #2, but I'm sure it's also excellent.


Ds2013-05-30 23:22:58
@Mike: imo the 2nd one is even better! i'm addicted to the track "Slippery Tunnel" :)


Mike2013-05-31 01:00:35
Hybrid and Ds, listening to the second one now. It is indeed even better. Both are just really fun and uplifting.

Not specifically related to SKYLANDERS, but just FYI, there are a TON of new "additional music" cues posted on Lorne's official site, www.lornebalfe.com

Just a few things that are included... Transformers 1 and 2, Angels & Demons, and Inception :D


Alex.2011-11-11 10:21:47
JAW. DROPPED. AND ON THE FLOOR AFTER THE DREAM COLLAPSING.

:) Thank you.

Fun score, just listened to the entire thing!


Bondo2011-10-28 10:20:48
If anyone's interested, this is very similar to Balfe's work on animated features like BEE MOVIE. The theme is somewhat reminiscent of Zimmer's own TRUE ROMANCE


Phil2011-10-31 11:55:34
you're completely right - especially depending on somewhat reminiscent of Zimmer's own True Romance


Bondo2011-10-31 12:11:18
It's the marimba! :D


Phill B2011-10-31 13:45:58
marimba it's called ohh..
didn't know that
thx :)

FYI there is approximately 14 min of this on Lorne Balfe's website. :D

Cool, thanks man!

Coming soon in later october !

Lorne (& Hans for the Main Theme) ! ;)


Takehiro2011-10-13 20:39:20
Huge Spyro fan, and although the game looks crummy, the music samples sound great! :)


J2011-10-18 18:31:43
Oh no! Download only...


T-Mann0362011-10-20 06:00:10
Are you friggin' kidding me, Hybrid... really? I simply cannot wait. I'm sure Lorne's tracks are as epic as Modern Warfare 2.


Takehiro2011-10-20 18:47:36
They have done justice to the original Spyro music legacy started by Stewart Copeland. I am getting this as soon as its available.
