Okay. I'm on the Lorne Balfe bandwagon now. I don't care if this movie is trash, this is a great listening experience, which is sometimes difficult to find in a score these days.Composer credits !@spectre<br><br>She has a theme! Search for "Rachael's Song"!I agree. It is the most beautiful theme of the previous film and one of the biggest in Vangelis' career.I feel like there should have been a proper theme for Rachael. She was a really important character in both movies and it would have been nice to hear a sad melancholic melody for in her in some kind of Flashback or dream sequence for Deckard.
$$$$$$ the soundtrack is FANTASTICSame here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.Just listen to all of it !!!! It’s a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!
No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The ShellI totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>
Am I the Only one that feels Johánn Johánnsson touch everywere along this score?<br>Truly is the Vangelis reminiscense in each song, but the style is more near to Johánnsson than Wallfisch and of course Zimmer.<br>Could be Denis Villeneuve's suggestion, or maybe Benjamin has study Villeneuve last works, but is unquestionable that 2049 score sounds very Johánnsson.<br><br>Many people these days talking bad about 2049 score (No melodies, No Vangelis, All ambiance...), but the reality is that this work has perfect match with the rest of the film.<br><br>2049 is different to the original Blade Runner. Yes it has the same world and feeling, but is another director's vision, and the music follows (perfectly) the same way.OK, there seems to be a regular edition at amazon and other retailers with the same content (2 CD) for a cheaper price than the limited one. It's nonsense. Will the record label pay me back a couple of bucks? I don't think it is ethical business at all.Saw the film last night and the music score was really good . Big and epic . It is how more scores shouldYou're right, matthew, but i'd said everyone here is used to this kind of album release with HZ/RCP, like The Thin Red Line or Inception with a lot of suites and not so much of the actual movie score. Personally i don't mind because I know the full score will be release some day and I really enjoy suites. However, I'm afraid there is nothing else to do that wait.<br><br>ps : i think Hans or RCP has no right to publish a full score (even they own), it's up to the studio--If they decide to release a proper FYC hopefully that will contain the film order/versions/unreleased/etc. <br><br>But I do agree, this is one of those scores that is tremendously improved by the film flow. Honestly I never understood the thinking behind putting out an album if you aren’t going to use the full 79 minutes it allows. Especially when you are missing cues which are vastly different from what’s presented. Why “Escape From Ship” or “No Time For Caution” weren’t there to begin with confuses me.

I love this game.

The Black Flag soundtrack is out there. I know it's not really RCP related, but just thought I'd put it out there. And yes, Brian Tyler does a far better job at it than Lorne Balfe did, in my opinion, though I like both.


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-22 08:51:00
I wonder how many RCP people ghostwrote it without credit... :P


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-22 11:07:28
I was actually surprised to find myself quite bored by it, and I actually prefer Balfe's score. If you asked me whether I'd take Balfe or Tyler I'd pick the latter most days of the week, but in this case it's the other way around. So yeah, maybe there really was some ghostwriting going on...

An amazing score, the music is so fresh and dynamic and .. epic ! yes !!

Brian Tyler will compose the score for AC4.

Will Lorne scoring Assassin's Creed 4 too? :)


T-Mann0362013-03-06 04:34:45
I have a gut feeling that Lorne will be composing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.


DIMITRIS KROMMIDAS2013-03-06 14:14:33
That would be great!!! I wish for Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe!!


cody2013-03-07 00:21:20
They should bring back Jesper Kyd :(

Too bad that Jesper have turned it down and not compose any music from the AC franchise.

I bought the album yesterday! it's totally worth it...on Amazon :PPP Anyway, I love the main theme and the fact that Lorne reprises "Labored and Lost" as a theme for the forerunners. Good job Mr Balfe :)

P.S.: As all as I heard Jesper Kyd left the series himself. He wasn't kicked off by Lorne as one or two fellows might think. Jesper left the Hitman-franchise as well. And I think Lorne is great replacement:) that's for you grumpy users ;)

Bar reply Replies: 0 || 2012-11-01 18:25:53
Well,

after listening to the entire album i must say the revelations one is much better,especially the main theme.

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2012-11-01 12:45:40
I know it's a stretch to ask right now since the game just came out, but at some point would someone mind attempting to put this in chronological order? I'm doing this as I'm playing the game, but I'm MAYBE 1/5 of the way through...

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 2 || 2012-10-31 23:28:00
Lorne told me they wrote nearly 4 hours for the game.

He'll put unreleased cues on his site very soon.


Macejko2012-11-01 10:04:43
That's good news, I'd like to hear some ambient music too.


lolly2012-11-01 11:10:49
i really like how lorne is so open to his fans and is willing to give us more material.

not like hans, promising since 20 years to bring a complete release of the lion kind, but disappeared again...

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2012-10-31 18:31:13
Ok, I gave it one more listening. The Main Theme is great, powerfull and epic... but the rest lacks variation and originality and is pretty uninteresting in general.


Radik2012-10-31 21:04:08
So We'll must wait until then game release.. how it works in game itself.. :)

Bondo reply Replies: 4 || 2012-10-30 12:29:02
It's available on Amazon MP3 right now, $8.99 and totally worth it!

Listen to "Fight Club" and "Beer With Friends" if you liked Sherlock or Skylanders :D

$9.99 on iTunes in high quality... Amazon is 256kbps mp3 which is $%*& compared to 256kbps m4a

After the first listening - not as good as I hoped :(


Anonymous2012-10-30 16:46:25
I agree. Expected much more. Revelations was much better. Every track sounds like a generic action track with drum loops, overdone brass synth with some violins playing in the back. With removing the vocals and the choir this score has lost all dramatics and emotion. Shame cause after revelations I expected a blockbuster score...


Radik2012-10-30 20:34:48

As far as Lorne is concerned, the last one was 75 min for him, including multiplayer stuff...

So that one isn't exactly FAR from that... :)

Oh well better then nothing. For me Lorne is the new Zimmer these days. He has a great sound. Only a few more days of waiting.


Bioscope2012-10-20 05:35:33
I love his take on the ethnic idiom, coupled with some serious dakness, so i can't wait to hear the Native American flavour.


Bondo2012-10-20 12:45:51
From the clips, you can hear Sherlock Holmes in "Fight Club" :D

And it's great that he kept the continuity by re-stating some of the themes from AC:R
