mpolonest123 I’m glad I’m not the only one who enjoys Jurassic World. It think it pays great tribute to John Williams’ groundbreaking work for the JP franchise, but it also had many exciting and creative motifs that made the score stand out in my mind.As for Pan, I initially wasn’t impressed at all with the music. It took about a year for it to sink in and let me fall in love with the themes.@mrzimmerfan<br>Yeah, I definitely disagree. When I was watching Rogue One in theaters I kept getting taken out of the film because of the music, which isn’t something that I normally pay attention to when I watch movies. <br><br>And I know it gets criticized a lot, but I honestly love Jurassic World. The flat recording sound aside, I think it’s an intelligent score that does something new the franchise material while still paying tribute. Even Homecoming has grown on me, particularly Vulture’s theme.@Ds: i'm not a big fan for Pan, i liked the score, but Powell have MUUUCH better action/fantasy scores."Pan" was also a replacement score, and look at the marvelous Powell score we got... However I don't know how long he had to score it. Certainly a bit more time than what Giacchino got for Rogue One.
The action music is flat in Rogue One?, agree if the score isn't as good as Jupiter Ascending, for example, but the action music is BETTER than Spider-Man or Jurassic World.<br><br>IMHOAlso new Harry Gregson-Williams score out today! Breath.To be fair, Giacchino didn’t have much time to work on Rogue One, which explains why certain portions (coughactionmusiccough) fell flat. It’s not a bad score at all, but yeah, John Powell is above and beyond a better composer. His recordings have life and energy, and while most of it still sounds like Powell, he is able to switch into Williams mode so easily.<br><br>In defense of Giacchino though, just go listen to Jupiter Ascending if you want a score on the same level as this. The action music is phenomenal, there are at least a dozen solid themes, and the recording doesn’t seem as flat as some of his other scores.I think Powell found his niche with this score...<br>Because he's WAY better at apeing Williams than Giacchino could ever be, and with way more energy....<br><br>And here Giacchino prides his work on Williams from his origins in video game music... <br><br>This blows Giacchino out of the ocean and into the moon. This surprises me, as I expected Giacchino to have such  huge hard-on for Williams.Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer, <br>Hallo Hans,<br>  <br>ich habe einige ihrer Konzerte gesehen, Prag jedoch, war wirklich, ich kann es nicht in Worte fassen, unglaublich. Top Musiker und eine super performance!<br>Ihre Musik ist eine Inspiration.<br>Hoffentlich hören wir noch viele Stücke von Ihnen...<br><br>Hochachtungsvoll und liebe Grüße<br>Stefan
Yeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great scoreHe is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.
John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lolim surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)

Anyone know why the title is against George Washington


MacArthur2013-08-22 22:47:19
Cause for one i know he wasn't a King and 2 he wasn't a tyrant


Macejko2013-08-22 23:31:26
Whereas you are the king of stupid questions.


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-23 02:59:28
I believe a facepalm is in order.


MacArthur2013-08-23 03:28:22
You have a problem with the question


MacArthur2013-08-23 05:18:49
I just sounds like a lot of propaganda


MacArthur2013-08-23 05:19:09
It*


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-24 00:10:44
I have a problem with you being a fool. The game's premise is alternate history: what if George Washington had been a tyrant rather than the founding father he really was? Obviously nobody actually thinks that this is what he was really like.


Areozz2013-08-24 04:27:34
I think this is just a case of "MacArthur has never played this game and thus has no idea what it is really about." Nothing else to do here.


MacArthur2013-08-24 07:21:24
You're right i haven't played it but you never know who might take the premise of the game literally that's my concern.


MacArthur2013-08-24 07:23:54
cause some people who would wish to destroy this country would love people to believe that.


MacArthur2013-08-24 07:24:25
Inform me what is it about the story I mean


MacArthur2013-08-24 07:27:57
Cause if it turns out that washington is a hero figure at the end it would be fantastic news for me


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-24 15:36:42
You really think a fantasy/alternate-history game would pose a threat to the US by people taking it literally? Jesus. The Red Scare ended in the 1950s, you do know that, right?


Areozz2013-08-24 16:30:09
MacArthur, I hope you know that you can type more than one paragraph before submitting your comments.

See? See how easy it is? All I had to do is press 'Enter' twice. You ought to get all your thoughts completed and organized instead of posting one sentence at a time several minutes apart.

Plus: seriously?


MacArthur2013-08-24 18:54:39
Actually the Red scare ended in the 80's with Reagan.

So in essence, yes I do know when it ended. I also asked what the game story line was about.


Macejko2013-08-24 20:05:37
Are you aware of a magic tool known as Google?


AngryGuy2013-08-24 22:34:15
Leave it Macjeko, MacArthur sounds like a 9 years old retard, flooding all around, who hasn't understood this site is not Twitter.

At some point he'll get tired of flooding here, and he'll return where he belongs : far from here.

I know google but I read books you can't trust everything on google. Go read a book.

Great interview (with short snippets from the score and recording session) with Lorne and Hans about their involvement in Beyond: Two Souls
http: //www.youtube. com/watch?v=t2yAsaaWo9A

Can't wait to play the game, it sounds like something really interesting and inovative (both gameplay and videogame music vise)! :)

Brian Tyler will compose the score for AC4.

Lorne is not scoring Assassin's Creed IV - Black Flag... He's too many projects going on, no time for it.


Jimmer2013-04-09 23:00:23
Do you know who is? Another Remote Control grunt or someone else?


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-09 23:20:36
Ask UbiSoft...


Assassino2013-04-10 06:25:34
That makes me sad... His work on AC3 was amazing. He is a master in his thing :(


Mike2013-04-12 03:55:02
Wonder if it'll be Jesper Kyd...


zeroman2013-04-12 05:33:27
I've also been wondering myself if Jesper Kyd is coming back to the franchise on this one. So far I still haven't any info anywhere at all who will be doing Black Flag.


Anonymous2013-05-22 09:37:16
Shame. I was looking forward to a At Worlds End take on Assassins Creed pirate theme by RCP.

Kyd will probably use a lot of ambient again instead of epicness.

zeroman reply Replies: 3 || 2013-05-17 17:06:24
On facebook the composers they had listed were Jesper Kyd and Lorne Balfe. So I guess Kyd and Balfe will be working together again.


zeroman2013-05-17 17:17:25
Correction: I mean't to say Kyd & Balfe will be working on Black Flag according to facebook.


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-17 18:34:52
That's good news! Balfe's stuff is solid enough but Jesper Kyd is a more unique voice.


Everan2013-05-17 18:48:26
My fave was Revelations, loved how they worked! Looking forward for a pirate theme :D

I wonder who will be the composer for Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag. So far I haven't seen any info released on who the composer might be. I'm assuming Lorne might not be the composer for Assassins Creed 4 considering all the projects he's got going on this year....Then again I could be wrong.

Hybrid do you know if Lorne will be doing the score for Black Flag?


fabien2013-03-24 19:36:40
a fantastic score.
I would say also a dancing score sometimes. So funcky !
Love it!

Also reply Replies: 6 || 2013-03-22 06:18:35
I'd say Angels and Demons was another decent example of the level of awesome when they come together to collaborate. Almost all of the composers Edmund listed were working their asses off on A & D too.


Edmund Meinerts2013-03-22 11:08:13
Yeah, definitely another good example. :)

Of course, on the flipside you have On Stranger Tides which is a prime example of how NOT to do it...


Jimmer2013-03-22 12:22:06
Tell me again why we're arguing with this ".e.eiknl." guy who obviously knows nothing about music since he's calling Lorne the worst composer from RC? Clearly this guy is a douche and should not even be given the time of day. The end.


Macejko2013-03-22 12:22:28
Personally, I'm not quite fond of an idea of multiple composers making one score. A film/television/game soundtrack, in my opinion, should be a focused work of one single guy. And although I have nothing against Lorne Balfe personally (he is not my favourite, but he can make some decent work sometimes), I really, really hate the idea of him always having multiple projects to do (just for 2013 he has 11 (!!!) scores coming up or already released), and other RCP composers are barely struggling with two or three each year. Every other score coming from RCP these days is from Balfe. There is absolutely no justice in that.


Mike2013-03-22 19:16:32
I'm with Macejko, to some degree. If "additional" composer means a few cues here and there, I'd be alright with it. But with a lot of Hans Zimmer scores they end up doing way more than just "additional" work. Hans writes the themes and these other guys go to work to make cues. If they want to do that, they could at least say on album covers, "Music by Hans Zimmer & Remote Control Productions". But to say just "Music by Hans Zimmer" seems a little dishonest.


.e.eieknl. 2013-03-22 22:53:38
Yeah!!! The Worst!!! Composer of RC and of the World!!!!


Areozz2013-03-23 04:42:00
^^Whoops! Looks like a fiercely opinionated 13-year-old found internet access again. There's no point in arguing with this .e.eieknl because he/she/it is entitled to his his/her/its own opinion and this is an open site.

.e.eieknl. reply Replies: 8 || 2013-03-21 20:38:36
Wow! 4 Additional Composer.... Lorne Balfe the Worst Composer from Remote Control!


Mike2013-03-21 20:42:46
No way...Didn't On Stranger Tides have more than that?


Mike2013-03-21 20:51:57
Oops...Here I go, derailing the discussion to another work again.

Sorry. lol.


Hybrid Soldier2013-03-21 21:19:13
Thinking in number is just plain stupid, actually.


Mike2013-03-21 21:32:14
Agreed. The number of additional composers doesn't really matter as long as they don't end up writing the whole score for the principal composer. If they're new, it gives them experience for later.


Edmund Meinerts2013-03-21 22:27:04
At World's End had something like half a dozen additional composers and look how that turned out. Each composer got to shine, too: Zanelli with the new big Calypso piece, Orvarsson with Cutler Beckett's death, Jackman with Up is Down and the wedding action cue, Balfe with some of the Beckett-related stuff like Just Good Business, Gire and Sponsler with the first part of the maelstrom battle (man, it's nice to finally hear that cue SFX-free) and of course Zimmer himself coordinating the whole thing with all those amazing themes, new and old.

To me At World's End is the ultimate example of the RC collaborative system at its very best. So much talent, so much amazing music. So don't knock a score just because of the additional composers!

Boom, topic derailed AGAIN. ;)


.e.eieknl. 2013-03-22 00:17:27
THE WORST COMPOSER FROM REMOTE CONROL!


Mike2013-03-22 00:18:00
lol, Edmund


Barbarosa2222013-03-22 22:06:38
The worst? Are you deaf and blind? You just can´t see the huge amount of talent as Lorne definitely has! He is the main follower of Zimmer, he is like him in his youth... Tell me, where you can find so massive piece of emotions like in Balfe´s work? Huh? Do you know, how many movies and games he is actualy working? Many, and therefore 4 additional composers.
