Hello Doponko,<br><br>I've been searching for this soundtrack for years and have been unable to find it anywhere. Wound you consider sending me these tracks or telling me where I can find a cd?<br>Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!<br><br>I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.I'm greatly surprised that the great Herbie Hancock is also in this terrific scoreYes, Paesano is a good choice, but for Ramin it would be better..... He would be the better option in my eyes ;)John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.
I can't play the music, although I did play it before, what happened?And it sounds great! It also seems like the original end titles are included as well.<br><br>One interesting thing, the mix sounds a bit different in the samples. The percussion and brass are both more pronounced I think.I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.There's a sample of this cue on their site :)FUCK! :(
Finally, LaLaLand has done it! Many kudos to them!!!! One my holy grails as well. I've been waiting for this for ages!<br>Take my money LaLaLand Records! Just take it!John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories.  There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention.  Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade.  Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?"  If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.fail*
Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(Saw Patriots Day, really liked it. But the score was lacking. Really wish Jablonsky had done this one.The sticker on the album says: <br>"The best of Hans Zimmer<br>+ selected by him*<br>+ new arranged<br>+ new recorded with top stars"<br><br>*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme. <br><br>Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.<br><br>2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to. <br><br>I think that is about it.Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.

More people should be talking about this score. It's a really nice one, solid themes, some great choir moments and action. Plus - it brings back one of the really old-school samples from the Media Ventures days. Check out "Operation Christmas" at 1:26 or so...been a while since we last heard that synthy flammy drum sample. Awesome to have it back :D

Well it's good enough to have an FYC promo...


Anonymous2012-02-09 13:42:14
Speaking of FYC, there are about 40+ tracks from this score on Sony's FYC website.


Mr. Charles2012-02-10 00:58:53
Very nice, thanks for the heads-up. Gonna rip em


HGW42012-02-10 01:37:29
I loved this score from the beginning! Your absolutely right Edmund Meinerts...it deserves more credit!


Chris Foster2016-12-28 18:07:09
Yes the choir IS good. Not credited anywhere but I can reliably tell you it was Apollo Voices. I know this because I booked the singers!


Chris Foster2016-12-28 19:24:26
Have just watched it on TV and am delighted to see that Apollo Voices is credited on the film credits but it doesn't seem to be on IMDB.com

Does anyone know if the IMPORT version offered on amazon is a pressed CD or a CD-R as well?


Hi2011-12-05 06:45:03
Does anyone know? I wanted to know too....Thanks!


Adrian2011-12-05 17:06:47
Generally, the import versions are pressed CD's. If amazon states it's a CD-r, it is one, in all other cases it's a pressed CD. Recording companies like Watertower release mostly CD-r. In Europe, these get released through Sony, and they press CD's.

Compare, for example: Nightmare on Elmstreet import (Sony) and US release (Water Tower).


HGW42011-12-05 18:18:33
Hi Adrian! Thank you so much! I will remember that now :)

Very nice orchestral score (with a great main theme)!
My favorite track is "Dash Away", closely followed by "Space Travel", "Serengeti Escape" and "Goodbye Evie". :)
