The douchebag with the fucked up hairline known as Hybrid soldier erased my previous comment because i said Zimmer barely writes his own music. Can't even have an opinion on this website anymore? It's like I was bashing him or said anything terrible.I can't agree with Genius: Picasso. I like the score, but it doesn't have enough direction. Just a lot of soundscaping. It is like the score is just there. <br><br>Balfe has this same problem with a lot of his scores.<br><br>I am so tire of people claiming Balfe has potential. It is like a basketball fan constantly claiming that Player X is two years away from being two years away. Every year people say Balfe is going to do something great. I am still waiting for this. That said, I haven't listened to MI:6 yet.Christopher Nolan of music? You serious? You compare Balfe with Nolan, one of the most talented directors of this generation? Nolan always does his own shit. He doesn't tempt scenes from other movies and recolor them and call them his. <br><br>Has Balfe written a great score that is truly his own yet? Maybe I just haven't heard it. <br><br>The only thing Balfe and Nolan has in common is that they are both white and they are both British.So I've finally decided to give this a listen today, and it was a lot of fun! The general quirkiness, source cues that actually benefit the score, and one of the best themes that I've heard from Zimmer in Moriarty certainly make this one a keeper. A lot of people barp on the OST, but it certainly made me interested to hear the music in a better form. I'll probably have to listen to it again before forming a definitive opinion, but as is, it managed to actually live up to the hype.Music By Harry Gregson-Williams<br>Additional Music By Stephanie Economou<br>Music Supervisor By Jabari Ali
Totally phoned in...I got nothing from this...Y'know, up until recently, I also thought Lorne was one of the least interesting RCP composer next to Junkie XL. Then I listened to Genius: Picasso (because of that one Balfe troll's recommendation interestingly enough), and now I see enormous potential in him. That is one of the most interesting television scores I've heard so far. The orchestrations and overall complexity is an enormous achievement for Lorne and shows that he can do much more than generic sample composition. <br><br>I'll probably skip this score because I have no interest in Mission Impossible, but I have a lot more interest in Balfe's career now thanks to his work on Genius: Picasso. If he continues on that level of composing, he may actually get some notoriety.Um.....guys, why are we acting like Kraemer doesn't have the skill to do a different sort of score? I'm fairly positive Jack Reacher doesn't sound anything like RN. Really, the reason he wasn't brought in was because, apparently, McQuarrie was pissed that he was overruled in how he wanted the film to sound, so be deliberately chose not to hire him this time. Purely a thing of spite. And a lot of the disappointment lies in those who normally don't pay attention to film music, which shows just how special that particular score was.<br><br>Really, I'm confident that had McQ had his way this time, and with Kraemer on board, he would've made something that did fit the new tone of the film. Composers should be able to challenge themselves to do something that is out of their comfort. Which is likely why a lot of Zimmer scores are the way they are, since he's allowed to differentiate every once and a while.<br><br>As is, with this logic, Cruise should not have hired McQ again if he wanted a different kind of movie for Fallout.Hot take: Cruise saying that Fallout is the best score in the franchise is the equivalent of Danny Elfman saying there is only one Batman theme. Just marketing tricks to get one more excited.<br><br>Me personally, the general M:I sound isn't something I tend to get excited for, though I definitely acknowledge it's objectively well done. With M:I-2 though, while it's technically dated and incredibly cheesy, I admire it for those reasons, and is incredibly fun for me. Not to mention that the Spanish guitar is a lovely touch, and Injection is proof that there is more to Zimmer than some might think.<br><br>Balfe as a composer, to me, seems like tbe sort of guy who's told to get synth that fit the film well enough, and call it a day. Sure, there's one or two scores that go above and beyond to actually be something of note, but otherwise he's among the least interesting of the RCP bunch. Feel free to feel however you want, but that's my two cents.<br><br>It's frustrating that you have to deal with some of the touchier fans Edmund, but I'll admit that I do get a laugh everytime it happens. I love music, but I don't feel the need to get overly defensive about. I would just enjoy it and leave it like that.Meh on this one...Listening to it doesn't really do much for me. Maybe because I dont care for Cruise, or MIssion Impossible, or maybe because I already heard better from Inception and Fury Road....
Even on last year's Dunkirk Hans wrote 90% of it. Unless you are born in the last few months there is plenty of music which Hans wrote and many can remember.Interstellar is barely 3 years old.SamualPF - there people go again misconstruing my comments about some of the posters here as negative comments against Balfe or his music. I didn't say anything about the score. But sure, keep pushing that agenda.<br><br>George, you make fair, well-articulated points and for what it's worth, I never included you among those who have, shall we say, aroused my suspicions. I'm looking forward to checking out the score for myself and rest assured I'll give it a fair shake when I do. I've liked plenty of Balfe scores in the past, I swear I'm not a hater! :pNone of Kraemerís music is reused! Thematic consistency says what?I actually always listen to a new score with an open mind. If I start expecting something and the score doesn't sound like it or doesn't have a certain thing in it I will always be dissappointed. If I don't expect anything and it turns out a score is a dissappointment, it's not such a big deal.<br><br>For example:<br>A lot of people wanted/expected a lot of individual hero themes in Infinity War. I didn't think it was necessary and I'm absolutely in love with the score.<br><br>And in the cause of reprising themes from 30+ different character in a score of 2 hours would have been chaos. If you're talking about LOTR and themes, that's different story. Those scores were almost all 3 or 4 hours.<br><br>But all and all. I don't think this is a better score than RN, but I don't think it's a bad score. It fits the movie, and I think that's what a score is all about
Edmund ........<br><br>Yet again another negative comment about Balfe based on no fact . Sums you up really . The fact Tom Cruise who has produced the franchise has said he thinks is the best means something .we all get it that you donít like his music but simply contain yourself for always wanting to make pointless comments about him .<br><br>The reviews have been amazing for he filmmand Balfes scores . This may irritate you but at least watch the film and listen to the score then give a proper opinion.give it a goNo offense, Edmund, but if you havenít listened to it then donít make a judgement call on those of us that like it. Fallout in my opinion is the only really good RCP blockbuster score this year, and Iím going to voice my opinion on that. Pacific Rim, Tomb Raider, wrinkle in time, and Skyscraper have all been disappointments for me so when this surprisingly came out two weeks early, and I surprisingly liked it, then of course Iím going to ďflock overĒ and tell you all about how I feel. <br><br>Reviewers liking it is fun for those of us that like it. Tom cruise, who actually IS known to like film scores and has been to concerts for film scores (like Brian Tyler, even though Iím not crazy about him), liking it is also exciting for those of us that like this score and also for us who were excited to hear an updated RCP take on Mission Impossible. I root for all the RCP composers to succeed and create something memorable, and when others seem to like that too then Iím going to comment on it.<br><br>Whether it was Lorne Balfe, Henry Jackman, Ramin Djawadi, or Hans himself who scored this I would have been one of the first to tell you all if I liked it. And if I hated it I would also have voiced my disappointment... but simply put I was not disappointed and Iím glad that others are liking it, including reviewers and Tom Cruise.Once again, and not for the first time on this site, I can't help get the feeling that a Lorne Balfe score page is getting brigaded. Seems like every time he puts a new score out, a bunch of people flock to the page with glowingly positive comments (and brooking not even the slightest criticism), frequently from irregular users with very generic names who don't ever post in threads by other composers. And then using weak, tired arguments like "the reviewers love it" (I trust film reviewers on scores about as far as I can throw them) or "Tom Cruise said it's the best" (and since when is Cruise an authority on film scoring?) or "this is a new/modern/DARK M:I movie" (no excuse for a bad score). It feels, quite frankly, like shilling.<br><br>Disclaimer: haven't actually heard the score, I'm making no judgment on the music itself here. This is merely an observation of the posting patterns here.Iím right there with you. I definitely think Balfe is very talented, although heís far from one of the best composers out there. Especially compared to Zimmer.<br><br>That being said, Iím not crazy about MI:2. The highlights are solid (Injection and Bare Island especially) but I find most of the score either schizophrenic or just not as developed as the scores that influence it. Sorta like how everybody loves ďThe RingĒ but I canít personally canít help but hear it as a lesser version of Hannibal.Right, which is why Iím ok with this. Look, I love the score for Rogue Nation as much as everyone else, but I still kept an open mind and was surprised that I enjoyed Fallout as much as I did, regardless of the influences.

No word if Djawadi is scoring another Espinosa's film, "Child 44"?

Yumbo reply Replies: 1 || 2012-02-14 19:11:06
Amusing comments.

The score was very restrained.

The end credits song was the highlight, but sounded like Sting.


Evenstar2012-02-19 21:41:21
Most of the djawadi scores (specially horror & thriller) are restrained.

Great, more mindless, boring droning from one of the worst of Zimmer's minions

Great, more mindless, boring droning from one of this site's worst posters

Thanks for the compliment, my friend :-)

If only I could become one of Zimmer's minions....
Guys please, help me! I want to become a new Trevor Rabin, a new Harry Gregson-Williams, a new Mark Mancina, a new Hans Zimmer, a new Klaus Badelt, a new Nick Glennie-Smith, a new Ramin Djawadi....


What exactly does some need in order to become an apprentice, a follower, a minion, a disciple, a protege, an acolyte,a gillie, an attendant of the afore-mentioned individuals??????????
I implore/beseech you to help me!!!! I am desperate....

"Areozz"
Great, more mindless, boring droning from one of the members of this "Almost Official Zimmer Site" who in the beggining defended the bootleg scores and now is one of the minions who betrayed that position to turn his site in "Almost Official".


Areozz2012-02-13 23:40:14
Oh wow, did you do a whole lot hunting around this website gathering every post I've ever made and then compiling them and putting them into some kind of machine that would give you a result like that?

Congratulations, sir, on commenting on a post I made two weeks ago. Damn, you either have a shit translator or you're trying to tell me something about myself but are making an absolutely atrocious job of it. I first defended bootleg scores? But now I'm a minion who betrayed the site? WHAT DOES IT MEAN??

You think I have control over this site's "Almost Official" status? Well, thank you very much! I would like to believe so, but you are sadly mistaken. At least I have a name, coward! You might as well be anyone, but by establishing a name to myself people can recognize me--oh! Like you must have in order to have gathered the nonsensical [wrong] assumption you've made about me.


Aggelos2012-02-14 13:52:58
If only I could become a mixture of Mark Mancina, Hans Zimmer, Leonidas Leonardi, Rene Leibowitz, Hermann Boessenroth, Ivan Boutnikoff and Fabien Sevitzky.....


Mr. Fate2012-02-14 17:34:14
Aggelos, I don't know that anyone here will be able to help you much. I seem to recall some kind of contact information being posted on one of information or main pages, though.

And to everyone else in this topic: haters gonna hate.


Aggelos2012-02-14 23:05:19
Mr. Fate, I don't wanna contact the folks... What I suggest is that we have to figure out a way to steal their winning attitude.
We need to become the masters of the synthesizers, to usher a new epoch in our personal lives.


Mr. Fate2012-02-17 16:59:09
How curious!! I had just come to that same realization--although maybe for slightly different reasons than the ones you are after.


Aggelos2012-02-19 19:54:27
Mr. Fate, we need to surpass them, we need to destroy them!!!! That's why we need to stay together... They have colossal power/authority. But if we stay together and become more and more as time goes by, we shall be able to "dethrone" them. Every one last of them........

Just saw it, both the film and the score are good. A few twists....
