Listen to Ghost in the Shell. If you can come back here with a straight face and call Balfe a musical hack makes you a baboon humping cuck-monger. Balfe's talent and contribution is so incredibly apparent. If you can't hear that, you couldn't hear a dump truck drive through a nitroglycerin plant.Ummm the entirety of the Game of Thrones soundtracks show that Djawadi has many strengths both as a composer and a "theme man" or whatever. Game of Thrones has a soundtrack that is comparable to that of Lord of the Rings - not as memorable, but both LoTR and GoT have phenomenal soundtracks with memorable themes that describe the worlds depicted in each respective franchise. Each soundtrack has themes depicting different cultures, groups of people, characters or complex ideas. While GoT soundtrack isn't as beloved as the LoTR score, they share those qualities. So no, Djawadi is no weak composer.Ian - do you honestly think Genius or Churchill are no good !!!!!this site  is so weird.when people slag of Balfe it’s okay but we dare say he is actually good then people get mad about it .Bit pathetic.The guy has been nominated twice for an Emmy so can’t be that bad!Haters give it a rest and get a life please and let us fans just enjoy the musicHybrid, what did Danny think of what Hans was doing? Since he tries to claim that no Batman composer after him wrote a "theme"...Okay, so I'm not a fan of Balfe's; I think it's objectively the case that much of his music is very, very similar to work he's already done (seriously, how many times has he made obviously variations of Journey to the Line / Time?). However, his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO, not sure how one could expect more than that. Ironclad is actually a good example of this
Actually Hybrid my comment is based on their separate  interviews years apart. Zimmer's arguably dismissive comment years ago and Elfman's arguably stern remark about his theme being the only Batman theme, of recent note. <br><br>If they are both good friends who go to each other's barbecues on Sundays and drink beer together, more power to them. If they have a stellar working relationship, well, I obviously am not privy to that, but good on them. However based on what I've heard my impressions don't lean towards the latter.<br><br>If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. <br>  <br><br><br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !
These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :p
Balfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br>

The awesome end music is missing AND there are tracks that aren't even in the movie... Wtf??


theeaglesfan0052012-03-22 18:04:56
all these tracks are in the movie...

The ending music is in there

15. Alpha
16. Into The Fray


Ds2012-03-23 12:45:04
No. I finally found it. The ending music is "The City Surf" by Jamin Winans, from the "Ink" soundtrack.

I don't think the track "Alpha" appears in the movie...


theeaglesfan0052012-03-23 18:37:05
i'm pretty sure Alpha is in the movie..


Hybrid Soldier2012-03-23 19:48:43
Yes it is, eaglesfan... Ds has just drunk a bit too much lately !


Ds2012-03-23 23:17:54
And where in the movie? I've only seen it one time, but the ending is on youtube, and the ending music is "The City Surf", and not "Alpha".


theeaglesfan0052012-03-24 00:47:26
Alpha & Into The Fray are the ending songs...


Adrian2012-03-25 11:23:30
I think he saw this youtube film:
youtube.com/watch?v=g3gDTC_7IF4&feature=related

Youtube user states that the end could have been better - implies this is an edit. A good one though. The track used here is indeed the City Surf from Ink, amazing track. It's impressive, because Ink was 'just' and indie film.


Ds2012-03-25 11:55:00
The user wrote: "What an ending to a film could of ended a lot better". He speaks about the film & story, not about the music. There are other vids of the ending scene, they all have "The City Surf". When the film is out on dvd i'll try to find where in the movie is "Alpha".


Ds2012-06-08 13:03:28
@eaglesfan, Hybrid & Adrian: finally got the movie, the ending music is definitely "The City Surf".

Is it possible that Alpha is an alternate version?


Mike2012-12-20 07:31:40
To be honest I think Alpha should have been used instead. I like it better.

In the final sequence (min. 01:42:30 to 01.44.40) the track:
15. Alpha (2:16)
Not is corret because the piano not here.

Thanks!


Lambegue2012-08-27 20:16:15
I think the music you are speaking of is "The City Surf" : it's a re-use of a music from the movie Ink. You can find it quite easily on youtube


Seby2012-10-06 18:21:29
Thank you very much!
Nice, a pretty song!

I need the soundtack of the movie: "If Only" (Score)
I need the buy this score!

Have an idea?

If anybody is interested, here is my review of Streitenfeld's music:

http: //www.tracksoun ds.com /reviews/the_grey_marc_streitenfeld.htm

tl;dr - it's an effective score, but not one that makes for a particularly nice album.

link doesnt work man :S

You should attempt to remove the spaces from the hyperlink first.

I can only say that more than likely the only tracks needed from this score are the final 3...Memorial, Alpha and Into to Fray...The rest pretty much are filler. I dunno. None of those other tracks stood out to me.

Oh man such a fantastic score! One of Streitenfeld's best to date! Bravo!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2012-01-29 07:26:38
Saw the movie on Friday--excellent!

The score was very stark and minimalistic, in keeping with the snowy environs. There was a recurring theme or two, but nothing readily hummable. "You Are Gonna Die" has some very nice strings, and there's a great Trevor Rabin-esque piano motif in "Alpha." Things also get much tenser on tracks like "Eyes Glowing" and "Running From Wolves." Overall, an atmospheric score which effectively underlines the emotions onscreen.
