mpolonest123 Iím glad Iím not the only one who enjoys Jurassic World. It think it pays great tribute to John Williamsí groundbreaking work for the JP franchise, but it also had many exciting and creative motifs that made the score stand out in my mind.As for Pan, I initially wasnít impressed at all with the music. It took about a year for it to sink in and let me fall in love with the themes.@mrzimmerfan<br>Yeah, I definitely disagree. When I was watching Rogue One in theaters I kept getting taken out of the film because of the music, which isnít something that I normally pay attention to when I watch movies. <br><br>And I know it gets criticized a lot, but I honestly love Jurassic World. The flat recording sound aside, I think itís an intelligent score that does something new the franchise material while still paying tribute. Even Homecoming has grown on me, particularly Vultureís theme.@Ds: i'm not a big fan for Pan, i liked the score, but Powell have MUUUCH better action/fantasy scores."Pan" was also a replacement score, and look at the marvelous Powell score we got... However I don't know how long he had to score it. Certainly a bit more time than what Giacchino got for Rogue One.
The action music is flat in Rogue One?, agree if the score isn't as good as Jupiter Ascending, for example, but the action music is BETTER than Spider-Man or Jurassic World.<br><br>IMHOAlso new Harry Gregson-Williams score out today! Breath.To be fair, Giacchino didnít have much time to work on Rogue One, which explains why certain portions (coughactionmusiccough) fell flat. Itís not a bad score at all, but yeah, John Powell is above and beyond a better composer. His recordings have life and energy, and while most of it still sounds like Powell, he is able to switch into Williams mode so easily.<br><br>In defense of Giacchino though, just go listen to Jupiter Ascending if you want a score on the same level as this. The action music is phenomenal, there are at least a dozen solid themes, and the recording doesnít seem as flat as some of his other scores.I think Powell found his niche with this score...<br>Because he's WAY better at apeing Williams than Giacchino could ever be, and with way more energy....<br><br>And here Giacchino prides his work on Williams from his origins in video game music... <br><br>This blows Giacchino out of the ocean and into the moon. This surprises me, as I expected Giacchino to have such  huge hard-on for Williams.Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer, <br>Hallo Hans,<br>  <br>ich habe einige ihrer Konzerte gesehen, Prag jedoch, war wirklich, ich kann es nicht in Worte fassen, unglaublich. Top Musiker und eine super performance!<br>Ihre Musik ist eine Inspiration.<br>Hoffentlich hŲren wir noch viele StŁcke von Ihnen...<br><br>Hochachtungsvoll und liebe GrŁŖe<br>Stefan
Yeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great scoreHe is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.
John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lolim surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)

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


Mr. Charles2012-02-09 04:30:45
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". :)
