I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',
I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)
@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)
In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)But the film was particularly bad...<br><br>So I rather have a whole other team do something ELSE lol...Yeah... McCreary's score is one of the best from last year so I'd rather have him again.I open to ANY composer in this movies.<br><br>To answer the question, YES, i'm ready<br><br>Specially to a guy, who loves G14, KSi and KOTM

And credits for that one ! :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-24 17:21:44
And if you want chronological for that one (rough though, some tracks are made of cues not from the same scene, like Trolls Serve Witches) :

Don't Eat The Candy
The Witch Hunters
Business Is Good
White Magic
Lost Children Crying, Vol 2
Augsburg Burns
This Place Could Use A Bit Of Color
You Do The Bleeding
Trolls Serve Witches
Beautiful Story, Don't You Think?
There Are Good Witches In The World
Burn 'em All
Shoot Anything That Moves
Goodbye Muriel
The Fairy Tale

Much better listen imho (as always...)


Jeckyl2013-08-01 00:19:32
Theres a track after the song "the fairy tale" in the movie, it plays on the credits just at the end and lasts for 2:27 an instrumental song with a single female choir. You wouldn't happen to know whats the name of the song?


Jerry2020-04-30 23:51:56
Anyone know the edits for the chronological order?


Hybrid Soldier2020-05-01 00:08:06
If that helps you :

LOST CHILDREN CRYING, VOL 2 = 2M14
YOU DO THE BLEEDING = BERRINGER SUITE + 3M19
THERE ARE GOOD WITCHES IN THE WORLD = 4M25 + 3M23
THIS PLACE COULD USE A BIT OF COLOR = 3M16 + 3M17
GOOBYE MURIEL = 5M33
DON'T EAT THE CANDY = 1M00 + 1M01
BURN 'EM ALL = 4M26A + 3M20B + 5M32 + 4M27 + 3M22 + 4M31A
WHITE MAGIC = 2M13
SHOOT ANYTHING THAT MOVES = 4M30A + 4M30B
THE FAIRY TALE = FAIRY TALE SUITE
BEAUTIFUL STORY, DON'T YOU THINK = 4M24A
AUGSBURG BURNS = 5M34 + 2M15


Jerry2020-05-01 04:22:15
Helps some all I need to know is how to read the 1m03 etc. Like what does that mean.


Jerry2020-05-01 04:26:52
Like if I look at the complete score page using the 1m03 etc, would that help? Or do I need a different cute sheet?

Hybrid, can you upload more unreleased stuff from Atli?


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-06 13:04:57
Like what ?

I mean, I have one rule => 1 cue per project per composer...


So far I think Atli's career is represented quite well ! :)


Anos 2014-06-06 20:57:38
Maybe 2 tracks per Project per Composer?
Like Vantage Point from Atli & one unreleased cue from Henry for Vantage Point?
Because I love Atli's Music from Vantage Point & Hansel & Gretel!!


Lambegue2014-06-07 13:34:21
As much as I understand your desire to have more music, you musn't forget that it takes a lot of time to upload it : Hybrid has been working on it during a long time, and it's not finished yet...So one track per project is alreaddy good :)
Plus, if you love Atli so much, you can still buy his albums.


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-07 14:11:25
Yeah and composers agree with that... My point is not to put the whole scores streaming here... It's a showreel for composers...

I second this... I don't know why, but I loved the score, even tough I know it was kind of a mess... Well, I guess it happens! I did like Iron Man too, so... :p

Yeah! Didn't know Hans worked on it, it's great.


Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 12:45:36
It will be similar to Henry Jackman's crap for "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter".


Cloud2013-01-09 13:10:56
I hope this will be at least on par with Season of the Witch, which had some pretty great moments.


Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 14:43:27
Hey, Hybrid, can I have colored text too? Because that sure as hell isn't me. I kind of liked Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, actually.

Anyways, looking forward to this. Atli's underrated. :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-09 15:50:04
Sorry it's for H-Z.com team only ! :(


Looks like there are some funny jokers here. Get a life people !


tomPoland2013-01-11 09:44:01
It looks like Van Helsing, so I hope we will get at least something half as good as Silvestri score.


tomPoland2013-02-12 12:10:55
And I was wrong. For one-time listening only.


Miles2013-02-13 03:37:37
It's exciting and it has its moments, but it's not memorable or well-crafted enough to leave much of a good impression. Hope that Atli gets more demanded of him on his next project.

Ds reply Replies: 4 || 2013-01-24 12:12:03
Bought it on iTunes, it's a cool score. Very agressive, it's really like Atli described it: a mix between classic/gothic "fairy tale" sound and metal.

(note: in answer to a deleted post but I keep this as it gives some information (Damien))

You have it up to Amazon & iTunes, even an amazon link right here on that very page !

Don't act like child...

Anyway, funny that the "Executive Music Producer HANS ZIMMER" comes BEFORE the composer credit on the film poster... Oh well...


El Baradei2013-01-26 17:37:52
Yeah, it's funny... next time Hans Zimmer's name comes before the actors: music by Hans Zimmer, starring Brad Pitt.

Well i find Hans Zimmer's name more attractive than Brad Pitt or any actor :p

I really like this work by Atli

Amazon has a tracklist and audio clips up! It has contemporary elements which evoke Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but they're more cohesive and listenable here than in the former. There's also some nice quirky and unsettling choral work in Tracks 1, 9, and 13, and Track 12 sounds like what I can only describe as "gothic rock". Definitely looking forward to this!

Funny it's only digital and not even mentioning LLL Records. I wonder if their release will be strictly identical to this... LLL & Digital Bonus Tracks don't exactly match... And their physical release of Mancina's Sorcery was not the exact same as the digital one... We'll see.
