I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.
Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..I was meaning in addition to stairs and rooftops is there any other segments that play that partI would rather Balfe do the next Bond.MI5 Rogue Nation was a completely breath of fresh air in the series. Thanks to McQuarry and of course Cruise. But also, Kramer take the music in a new level and for me it's one of the best scores in the series. Balfe elevate the music to the netx level. No one doubt is the best in the series, even Balfe took some motifs from Giacchino's scores. So if Balfe return it would be awesome hear what could be the next level in his music, but if Kramer returns, is sure he will take the music to all new level. One of the things Cruise take care in the series is the music, he has a good ear, so many people were surprised when he choose Balfe to score the film.
I think that it's ridiculous that there is going to be a mission impossible 7 & 8. Hopefully, these are going to be the last ones and that they end on a high note. I do want Balfe back if they are going to make these films.I liked Fallout but Rogue Nation is where it's at. I wish Kraemer could return :/@ Jason Stairs & Rooftops was a standard track not a bonus<br><br>@ Peter cruise wanted a different composer and director for every film so they all have a different feel. McQuarrie made history there as the first filmmaker to do 2 M:I filmsStairs and rooftops is a fantastic track.Does anyone know why Kraemer wasn’t used?<br>I was at Admiralspalast on Sunday evening and I completely agree with what you wrote!
Guys... he-he's not getting it...was that segment in any of the bounus tracks? from LALA LAnd.I honestly love stairs and rooftops that track I could listen to that segment from about 3:25-4:20 over and over again. so I hope balfe does it againRogue Nation was a great soundtrack but Fallout has to be one of the best action scores since The Dark Knight.I hope they keep Balfe on for the next 2 films@Edmund Not at all! I think Kraemer’s score honestly is one of the best in the series, especially with the way he approached the material. On the same token though, I am also a massive fan of what Balfe did. A different approach for sure, but it still helped elevate the film much in the way Fury Road’s score did for that film. <br><br>Personally though, I feel like bringing a new composer on board to give a different take would be the most ideal, but that’s just me.

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". :)
