pos software comparisonNo what i meant by better is for these respective films, not in general his music for The shape of water is better than what hans did in Dunkirk. That's what i meantAnd who's the agent of Klaus?Well that's kind of silly. The Suite track is right there to listen to, why not include a way to purchase it or download it? Anyone know a way?The long tracks are usually fairly promising. Fingers crossed that this turns out well!
Desplat's music is more of the taste of all of this awards. He's a usual nominee and winner and it isn't strange that he beats up Dunkirk.<br><br>I personally prefer The Shape of Water over Dunkirk, but I must agree that Zimmer should have won for Interstellar a few years ago (but then, Desplat was there with two nominations so it was difficult for him to win)Great! Many long tracks. I'm especially looking for that 13 minute track. I hope the soundtrack is great."Desplats music is clearly superior to Hans."<br><br>That's a very dangerous thing to say around here... :PI'm sure the academy would love to know that Hans souldn't been nominated.    The Dunkirk Score is a masterpiece, but as I said if you have a problem with the score that's because you have a problem with the movie itself.Dude Dunkirk soundtrack wasn't even good, i love Hans but it should not of gotten nominated. Desplats music is clearly superior to Hans. well at least in these particular movies. I think honestly hans should of won for Interstellar when they announced desplat who had two nominations.... i was like what? but that's just my opinion.

I think honestly hans should of won for Interstellar when they announced desplat who had two nominations.... i was like what? but that's just my opinion.Well john powell left RCP as well and he still has a great career, i think Klaus just has a shitty agent, it makes me so angry cause he's so talented and I want to hear more from him but he doesn't get great movies. Or even big summer movies, I don't know about his career going downhill though.LOL. You clearly have no idea how Hans always worked like this, collaborating with people. There are no ghostwriters when everybody is credited.Track times<br><br>1. Return to Croft Manor - Junkie XL (8.13)<br>2. Seeking Endurance - Junkie XL (1.09)<br>3. The Bag - Junkie XL (1.49)<br>4. Path of Paternal Secrets - Junkie XL (3.39)<br>5. The Devil's Sea - Junkie XL (4.11)<br>6. Let Yamatai Have Her - Junkie XL (13.23)<br>7. Figure in the Night - Junkie XL (4.15)<br>8. Remember This - Junkie XL (3.26)<br>9. Never Give Up - Junkie XL (5.36)<br>10. Karakuri Wall - Junkie XL (4.38)<br>11. What Lies Underneath Yamatai - Junkie XL (8.35)<br>12. There's No Time - Junkie XL (4.01)<br>13. Becoming the Tomb Raider - Junkie XL (7.15)<br>14. The Croft Legacy - Junkie XL (2)again alexander desplat beats hans zimmer and won bafta !! why ?! maybe it is time for hans to write his scores all by himself not his all by his ghostwriters , and come up with a whole new idea like his old scores for example lion king that even beat 2 great works of thomas newman in oscar !!! <br>good luck
hybrid, what do you mean with downhill? to compose music for smaller movies doesn't mean you don't earn money or your career is ruined. i really don't see the problem with his career.Then explain to me why his career went downhill after he left Remote in 2006 ?Johánnsson was hired for Christopher Robin little time before his death. Now will be another composer.Johánnsson was hired for Christopher Robin little time before his death. Now will be another composer.Well, Klaus did compose a lot of the essential music from 1997 to 2005. As we know, Hans says - Hans does. Why do we trust this 'Hybrid Soldier', who calls them themselves that anyway? Tell us more mr rcp. How are you top of the line when you are French. Who is Hybrid - must be a reject from HZ line....<br><br>

Listening to this complete score for the first time and it's really striking how different the mix is on the album. The snare drums are much further forward, and everything sounds a lot brighter and immediate but also "thinner" on the album. Whereas the film mix has synth parts I didn't even know exist, like at the very beginning of the main titles/"Fighting 17th".

I'm trying to decide which version I like more, and it's difficult! The film versions sound "richer" but I miss the ballsy snare drum rhythms...

One is HZ, the other (the album) is not. End of story... :P


detective mittens2018-01-13 19:56:14
I think it's great if you have both versions, so you can choose whichever you feel like :)

I agree with everything you said except that I don't miss the ballsy snare drum rhythms so my vote goes to this mix xD

badbu reply Replies: 15 || 2014-05-20 12:10:07
The best score of the last 20 years!
The sound is so impressive!


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-20 12:13:29
Bah! It's good, but to say there's been nothing better written since? Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, At World's End, How to Train Your Dragon...bullshit!

Besides, 20 years ago was 1994. This came out in 1991. :b


badbu2014-05-20 12:20:25
LOTR...no...JP...no...POC3...ok, you're right!HTTYD...no...:P
yes, i know :D
But this score was Hans breakthrough :)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-20 12:23:41
This score is far superior than HTTYD... lol

RIP Edmund Meinerts


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-20 12:39:45
You seriously think this is better than Lord of the Rings?


ERS2014-05-20 13:20:25
This just in: Backdraft will go down in history as the best score ever written for film. You heard it here first, folks! People three centuries from now will remember BACKDRAFT as the pivotal score that had "impressive sound."


RealFfingMusic@23142014-05-20 13:44:40
No, we don't. :P


badbu2014-05-20 13:59:00
@Edmund: yes, i think this is better! :)


Greg2014-05-20 14:02:45
This is the worst bullshit i ve ever read since the bible...
How is it even possible to think that this score which doesnt even have 1h of music can beat the LOTR and its 12 hours of music?
Backdraft, honnestly no one gives a fuck about that one, LOTR has sold out its concerts for the last past years so please think this straight.


badbu2014-05-20 14:23:41
ok sorry, i change my feelings and my mind :D


Anonymous2014-05-20 15:24:28
there are more interesting subjects to press on than what's the best music ever written. I for one like to know what happened during the album production for this film. Compared to this bootleg the stuff on the Milan disc sound like all new recordings. Tthat epilogue cue in particular sounds hell of a lot better on the Milan disc than here, even if the sound quality is not so good.


ZimmerFan2014-05-20 17:51:30
Of course, I love me some Zimmer, but only Zimmer drones think this beats things like Jurassic Park and LOTR. Pathethic...


Per2014-05-20 18:23:13
The film mix (or original mix or what you wanna call it) of the Epilogue cue (or all the cues for that matter, but in particular the Epilogue) I find far more superior, and more enjoying, and certainly more powerful!, than the lousy album mixes.

Only thing I liked about the album mix was that extra piano...


Ds2014-05-20 20:42:03
This is a nice score but holy shit it doesn't hold a candle to most HZ scores, and certainly not to HTTYD!


Marcorea2017-03-30 10:31:53
I gotta agree with ds here. I love BACKDRAFT and I'm a pretty big hz fan but there is no comparison. Especially with HTTYD. IMO zimmer cannot orchestrate in the same way with an organic orchestra the same way as shore, Willian's and even powell. He adds a lot of extra layers through synth. But zimmer is the best at the style of music he produces.

Where can this album be purchased?


Zimson2014-07-15 05:30:11
It's a bootleg, so it's not for sale. *** EDITED ***
