You know this score can be quite good sometimes. i find myself getting really into the new themes and ideas and thinking this score really had potential.. but then the track awkwardly switches to a painfully obvious temp from AWE that doesn't make any sense any way you think about it and my eyes roll so hard it hurts.<br><br>Fantastic score, very much in the vein of Chicken Run and his other animated scores at that timeOne of the few Powell scores I still haven't heard. I remember the music working well in the movie, but I really need to listen to the whole thing separately. Any opinions on it from Powell fans?I agree. Though the album selection is pretty solid, those tracks you mentioned are definitely missing!It's criminal that Mr Charles, Strategy, and It's a Trap weren't included on the OST. I guess we did get It's a Trap as a bonus track, but it wasn't the film version.
Well with that score we got pretty lucky in term of theme suites being released, with 5 of them. I don't know for sure if there's more but I think we have it covered.Hybrid, do you know if any suites were written besides the ones that they released?“Our World” is a pretty amazing track, the “Murph” suite is also incredible just in how it gradually builds to that finale...Dust, Who's They, and Our World are other favorites, for sure. Our World is some fantastic ambient music. Before the film was released, I expected most of the score to sound like "Our World."Mountains too... The Tick Tock suite.<br><br>"Our World" is a fav' of mine too, how could they not release it ?
Coward is amazing. Ntfc is overratedDon’t forget Coward! :DI don't think Cornfield Chase is underappreciated because that is the cue everyone is talking about besides No Time for Caution and Mountains. The most underappreciated cue to me is Dust. The amount of mystery, wonder, and curiosity from that cue is amazing.The development of the music in season 2 is great.<br>Love the Westworld suite, a lot of Person of Interest in this cue :)<br>Listening With A Million Ears In the West :)
Mike, I definitely agree with you. I think that Cornfield Chase is an excellent example of Zimmer's diversity in music. It shows that He can compose themes that are adventurous and light-hearted rather than being so dark, which is quite different from a lot of his works including his other collaborations with Nolan.So everybody talks about No Time for Caution, and that is a great cue, but I think an underappreciated track from this score is Cornfield Chase. It sounds so whimsical and uplifting. It captures the wonder and fun of childhood really well. The fact that it's so driven by the pipe organ makes it even better. I love how Hans incorporated the organ into most of the tracks.Does Paul Mounsey secretly compose everything??? He seems to be involved in so many scores.Hi guys. Do you know who will compose the score of wonder woman 1984 ? Rupert again ? Or hans ?General Kenobi!

There's a new Ice Age movie and John isn't scoring it:(


0-^-02015-12-16 20:05:50
Who is scoring it then?


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-17 09:56:17
imdb currently lists Mark Mothersbaugh, but we'll see what ultimately happens. If it isn't Powell, I'll be a little disappointed too, but honestly, after three of these, I don't think there's much more he could have done with the franchise. Continental Drift already felt largely like a work on autopilot. It's far more important we make sure not to lose him on HTTYD3. :)


Scorefan2015-12-17 20:09:38
I think Mark is a good choice. I like his score for lego movie. I think if Powell doesn´t return for the 5th movie, Mark can make a great score.


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-17 23:22:44
I hope it's more Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs than Lego Movie (the latter was a little too hyper even for me), but yeah, Mothersbaugh can write fun music. He feels like a good, if slightly "obvious", pick if Powell's not available. I suppose it's too much to hope for him to keep Powell's themes, though (and it's not like Powell kept David Newman's, so it's only fair :p ).


Scorefan2015-12-19 16:09:43
i agree with you Edmund, David Newman would come back for another installment. The first score was great, with great themes, just remember the music from the opening scene.


scart2016-03-27 23:03:26
Confirmed!! John Debney scoring Ice Age: Collision Course. Oh, well.


Edmund Meinerts2016-03-28 08:35:54
I consider that a small step up from Mothersbaugh. Should be a fun score, even if it's not quite the same without Powell. I do wonder if he will keep Powell's themes - I know Powell didn't keep Newman's, but that was after only one movie and now there have been three for viewers to get used to Powell's.

Based on the sample, a usual comeback from Mr. Powell.

I hope imdb is true, that JP will score Pixar's Good Dinosaurs ( Dreamworks starts to not using RCP's composer, well, pixar is on the contrary )

Thomas Newman has been announced on The Good Dinosaur. Unfortunately for me, because I don't think there's anyone better at animated scores than Powell. :(


aldan2013-04-12 08:38:13
That's a pity though, i really expected that to happen. I mean what i can learn, Powell is simply story-oriented guy, if the story is good, then the score will be equally good (HTTYD, Bolt, Happy Feet, Chicken Run, Antz, etc.). And Pixar, as we know, create......

And what is even worse, Powell's next scores after a year of hiatus wil be sequels...., i really want to hear new original music from him.

But Thomas Newman back to animation is also a pleasant news (personally, his best scores are indeed from animated movies, Wall-e, and Finding Dory,uhm...Nemo)

Is this song by Powell?

If it's by Powell it must be on the album (the song "Food Glorious Food" from Ice Age 2 was on the soundtrack album)


Andrew2012-07-31 06:04:17
Food Glorious food wasn't composed by JP. it is from the musical "Oliver!" (i actually just recently found this out) he did, however, do the arrangement and obviously some lyrics were changed

Well, if Zimmer disappoints, we'll have at least a great soundtrack in July :D

Longer tracks! Awesome!

Scrat's Fantasia on a Theme by Ludwig Van Beethoven?? Holy awesomeness!!

Looks very nice! In comparison to the 3th movie, there are less tracks, but longer ones: perfect!
