Because they each only wrote one theme and they weren't used in this movie.  Almost all of the original themes were Hans' anyway, and those were used, so he's credited.Surely there's more original Pirates of the Caribbean themes than just Hans Zimmer, no?! Klaus Badelt and Blake Neely are credited in the others so why aren't they here???the likes of which well never hear outside of the film. our only hope is if someone gets the fyc album and shares itIt was also nominated for interstellar and the film had not yet been shown ... the most important thing is that there can be great music in this movieBeen watching it on the BBC and Balfes score is breathtaking
I don't think you want the general public nominating film scores.FYC albums is the thing studios use for these kind of nominations.Especially can't wait for the Mission Impossible 2 mix.yeah. critics. who the hell nominated it for the music? the general public hasn’t even seen or heard it yet.The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival back in September and was reviewed by like 50+ critics already.
and the film has yet to open. who even nominated it? the people in the industry. they award themselves. goes to show how much of a sham it all is.Nominated in Hollywood media award best score film.To be honest,it sounds a bit computerish to me also. It lacks expressiveness and the "voices" of both hands are at the same volume most of the time, a bit confusing for the ears.As a pianist myself I think I can safely say this wasn’t Hans...from hearing the demo I doubt any one pianist could play it all. This could be multiple recordings on top of each other, or (more likely) one of Hans’ typical computer demos.This soundtrack has been available for 12 years

And the music when the train drives into the Mesa, the Dolores and Teddy love scene music and more variations of the Dolores theme which we hear in the second part of "Myself" on the album.

It's cool but nothing really new for the fans who already know every detail of his career :p

People need to realize that this is just going to be a typical Zimmer release, we all know the film will be packed with action and emotion and that no doubt the majority of the recording sessions will not be on here in their proper film versions, so I say judge this score once you have seen the film not by this album alone.


Meta2013-05-14 18:49:46
Of course, which I'm sure also means there's gonna be action pieces. I mean, this is typical Zimmer territory anyway. Im not expecting Williams' Superman tune/Williams action scoring...

It's a secret link cause it is not on WaterTower their soundcloud profile. So the full album must be out there for the press.

"Stock Exchange" from TDKR, anyone?


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-14 02:03:05
Been trying to avoid samples, but I checked this one out (and got the trailer before Iron Man 3, so couldn't really avoid that one). Can't say I'm hugely impressed by this. The trailer music sounded not bad, though.

After all that talk about trying to keep it distinct from Batman, "DNA" does indeed sound pretty close. But you could never exactly rely on Zimmer to put his money where his mouth is. :p


Mike2013-05-14 02:05:43
Edmund, while I agree Dna isn't very special, listen to the trailer music a few more times. You need to let it grow on you (as I did).


Anonymous 2013-05-14 05:04:42
To be honest, the action music doesn't really sound that great. BUT, it sounds like this score will have many sincere, heartfelt moments that do sound great. That genuinely makes me happy. I'll happily throw out the action and just keep the tender moments of the score.


Jor_El_Hans_is_the_fucking_master2013-05-14 13:08:56
Seriously,
All this people who is saying MOS sounds like Batman should think aboout their future as a film music listeners.
It can't be as diferent in tone, textures and orchestrations.
By the way, purists are going to commite suicide with this score, but Hans did it again. He is the man. He is the one!

Thanks Frank! The Driving Miss Daisy suite is very cool, the Man of Steel track is... well... intriguing (maybe due to the recording).

I wonder if there's going to be a live concert for the premiere, like Inception. Do Hybrid know something about that? :)

Amazon.fr has a picture of the deluxe edition's contents. The 1st CD is called "Flight", and the 2nd one is called "Experiments From The Fortress Of Solitude".

I assume the 2nd disc only contains suite and original ideas!

About the clips...this time Hans really shocked me. I didn't expect that sound at all. A realy fresh and cool sound. So clean, so pure...so firm! Mindblowing, evocative, beautiful...
By the way, Why drums? I think they are terrific emulating superman's Sonic velotcity, but Why drums? Just asking, since I love how perfectly recorded, performed and composed they are.

Guitwo2013-05-09 20:35:33
definitely i'm not impressed by all those samples. Am I the only one? but i won't take any conclusion on the full album 'til its realease

Guitwo...
listen how unique the percusión from this samples sounds...the whole Sonic world created for this movie is really fresh and evocative. Besides Hans is like Japanese food sometimes...:)
This is how you keep things moving. Love it.

Trent Easton Navarro2013-05-09 21:45:19
@Guitwo, Nope you are not alone. I expected a lot more. But..., I will wait until I've heard the entire soundtrack before I'll give my final judgement.


Guitwo2013-05-10 00:13:51
i foudn that sonic world, with those big drums maybe too teaser-like"

hans zimmer is not "two steps from hell". i've been following him for approx 14years and he has always found a way to print his own signature sound on a movie.
I don't see anything particular here other than big drums. But again, those are just samples. I won't judge the whole album based on those samples. I'll wait but i'm still trying to understand the hype around those samples.

on the other hand it might be a good news because it means he has created something that you can't fully appreciate without watching the movie and that this the core of making film music.


Ds2013-05-10 01:15:34
@Guitwo: well, i like these samples because they hint so much more. They're just the 1st minute of all the tracks, so we get some ideas and hints of the themes and sounds, but we actually don't know how it'll turn out. In film music, the best parts are often at the end!

Judging by these samples, i think MoS is going to be a mix of Hans old striking grand themes of the 2000's and the more percussive heavy style he's shown over the last few years (TDKR, Angels & Demons).


Guitwo2013-05-10 01:47:30
i consider TDKR one of his best job. still shocked by imagine the fire/wayne manor suite brass. so much power, exceptionnal melodies and strong percussions. RE-using the famous two-notes batman theme and adding new cues.

here i have the impression that it's just big percs played together and that the melody aren't good enough.

but hey pale that's IMO and knowing that it's just the beginning of each tracks. Taht's why these are call samples.
I expect Hans to rock my ears once again (especially in Imax)


Guitwo2013-05-10 01:48:22
aren't good enough = aren't present enough.

Oh well. Still excited.


Pluto2013-05-07 19:54:15
Are you sure they're remixes Mike? They might not be.


Mike2013-05-07 20:19:57
I can't think of any other reason that iTunes would say three of them are by "Hans Zimmer and JunkieXL". But okay, they MIGHT not be.

Unfortunately, it sounds like Social Network:/ no superheroism in these samples at all


Ds2013-05-07 21:18:43
Are you crazy? :o in my opinion it just sounds incredible! Track "This Is Clark Kent" looks especially interesting. One month to go...


Cabox2013-05-07 21:21:43
Yeah that track sounds nice but it reminded me of S.N. because of the little piano tune played slowly over the droning electronics.. like "Hand Covers Bruise" I think... I'm definitely not crazy


0-cool2013-05-07 21:28:06
These are just the first 60 seconds of every track. Most tracks have a build-up.
Just look at the app snippet(flight : https://soundcloud.com/dajanksta/mos-app) and then the sample of Flight. Slow build-up that gets epic and heroic


julien2013-05-07 21:41:59
Terraforming sounds amazing !!


Pluto2013-05-07 21:45:45
Thanks for the link Hybrid. Haha Mike. :P From what I've heard of those so far, and granted, it's not too bad, coming from somebody who hates remixes. They might be slightly over synthesized. It's possible these songs might be more like the Dark Knight Rises extras we got, such as "The Shadows Betray You" and "The End". You gather what I mean? Maybe a slight remix of the themes in the soundtrack, but not necessarily quote-on-quote "remixes" we're used to despising.....


Mike2013-05-07 21:49:52
They DON'T sound like remixes!


Anonymous2013-05-07 21:50:50
It seems the coolest cues (and most epic varations) are already on itunes/soundcloud/youtube

Remixes or not, this is gonna be an awesome and lengthy release


Meta2013-05-08 06:51:52
All i hear are typical Zimmer synth - typical for his score in Pearl Harbor with piano, that is - followed by some 80s synth he is brought back for accent, followed by a collection of percussion I can only best describe as "DRUMS OUT THE ASSSSSS!!!"....





Meta2013-05-08 06:57:03
And believe me, I get the drums in this....

Zimmer probably thought to himself: "John Williams' Superman score. DAMN. DAMN! How the HELL am I going to compete with that score? No way in hell...No way...Let's see what can I do? Hey Paul! What's the most powerful musical instrument in all of music? Drums you say? Percussion? Ka-ching!"

Still...it's another welcome Zimmer score. I hope his Lone Ranger proves just as creative and ambitious....I doubt it, though, based on the treatment this release it getting...


tomPoland2013-05-08 07:58:19
Zimmer and ambitious? you can't use this two words in one sentence since DaVinci Code, I think. Samples sounds bad.


Mike2013-05-08 08:19:38
The samples might not be indicative of the whole score. I can only think of one sample--one--where it showcased the best part of the song: Aggressive Expansion from TDK. Never go by samples to determine how the overall score will be.


Anonymous2013-05-08 08:23:40
Yes Mike, but isn't that the point of samples? Letting you hear the best seconds of a song so that you will buy the album.

I really hope the samples are not those best moments. lol


Mike2013-05-08 08:28:50
You'd think that'd be the case, Anonymous, but it hasn't been in my experience. lol


0-cool2013-05-08 10:50:53
it's not the point of samples.
Amazon samples are always 0:30-1 min of EVERY song. The Watertower samples are the first 60 seconds of every track


Ds2013-05-08 16:33:11
Yeah Mike's right. Samples truly aren't satisfying to preview film music, especially Hans' music, because Hans loves build ups :p


Meta2013-05-08 18:45:03
I already catch 2 themes...

One is the Clark Kent/human theme represented by the piano, which obviously takes off into the Superman theme with the orchestra raping the drum sets...

The other, I think, is the Zod/danger theme? You can hear this second theme in other cues, but mainly in "Launch."

If you want a third one, I guess the background space noise will do: it sounds like the same ethereal music from Pirates 4 is in this though...Yes you heard it: Pirates 4 (and if you want an example try listening to the beginning of "Mermaids").

The score has a very spaceish sound to it, which makes sense. Reminds me Thomas Newman's work on Finding Nemo in a way, calling to mind a sense of expansive distance and loneliness.

Johnson2013-04-26 16:49:22
amazing you say?

I dont know what this cue is supposed to represent, mind you. That's a given...

Still...What's with the guitar riffs in this? From the piano and now guitar riffs heard so far, this sounds more like a score for some action movie than it does for a movie about Superman. He's not going the Inception route for this, is he?


Since when does Superman need guitars?


Guitwo2013-04-26 18:15:40
yeah i said amazing.
but hey from what i've heard (bad audio quality), this theme is so far so good.

in fact i'm not bother by the guitar riff nor the piano, the percs are annoying me more than anything else. It reminds me Call of Duty. Maybe a "Zod Theme"

but like i said, the theme (the air) sounds amazing i won't judge the instrumentation 'til i can't hear the true version

Same theme as in the app. Cool tune, powerful and heroic. I really think this score's going to blow everyone's mind.

Looks like "Sent Here for a Reason" might be Trailer 3 music.


Aragorn2013-04-30 08:47:07
DNA sounds intense.


Anonymous2013-04-30 08:51:08
Man, a lot of the tracks aren't available for sampling. The ones with the most intriguing titles! "This is Clark Kent", "Flight", "You Die or I Do", "What are You Going to Do When You're Not Saving the World", and of course, "Man of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook)".


Mike2013-04-30 08:54:20
@Anonymous: Man of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook) just became available for a very brief sample.


Nerd2013-04-30 09:00:00
The beginning of the Tornado sample sounds like Inception.


Aragorn2013-04-30 09:01:16
Maybe Oil Rig is the track where that drum orchestra came in...


Ds2013-04-30 09:06:06
Love the tracklengths. It's approximately 58' of score + 28' "original sketchbook" = 86' !!!

PLUS the 7 tracks in deluxe edition. Can't wait.


Mike2013-04-30 09:07:49
Same, Ds. I'm far more excited for this than I was for TDKR (though I was excited for that), because this will be all-new stuff, whereas with TDKR we already knew what the Zimmer Batman sound was like.


Anonymous2013-04-30 14:13:22
Tracks after the jump it says. I must be still asleep cause I can't seem to find the previews...


Guitwo2013-04-30 14:23:08
go to the amazon page. the normal album (not the deluxe one) and you'll be able to listen to those tracks.

here's the link for you: h ttp://www.amazon.com/Man-Steel-Original-Picture-Soundtrack/d p/B00CKZX0AA/ref=sr_shvl_album_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1367308364&sr=3 01-5

IMO i haven't been blown away but those short extract.


Jasper2013-04-30 18:30:58
I'm liking what I'm hearing. Some of the tracks have a space ambient feeling, which I feel is very neat :)


Johnson2013-04-30 18:41:31
LET THERE BE DRUMS!!!!!!


.....

Sorry, that's all I got.


Oh wait he's employing that synth sound from the 80s in this score...I like how his scores since Dark Knight have had 80s sounds to them....Nice.


0-cool2013-04-30 18:47:09
the seemingly most important(thematically) cues aren't working. What a coincidence


Mike2013-04-30 19:35:24
Guitwo, yes, they're far too short. Also, as 0-cool said, the seemingly most important tracks can't be sampled.


Anonymous2013-04-30 19:40:51
Wow. Listen to the Launch sample and tell me you don't hear Battleship by the time it's done.


Nerd2013-04-30 19:43:00
I'm really liking the sample of "If You Love These People".


Mike2013-04-30 19:46:47
@Nerd: I'm wondering if that track is the same motif as the one in the app linked below.


Radik2013-04-30 19:52:22
Mike: If is, so it's some problem with it?


Mike2013-04-30 19:58:22
Never said there was a problem with it, m'friend. They just sounded similar is all.


Anonymous2013-04-30 20:21:03
Since the album has reached Amazon already it must also reached our uber-zimmer guy Hybrid. So how is the whole album hybrid?


Mike2013-04-30 20:23:39
Hybrid said he wasn't gonna listen to any of it before seeing the movie. Now, he may fail, but still.


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-30 20:28:13
I won't fail...

It's just fun to watch all these reactions to the trailer music, samples & all while I have strictly no idea how it sounds like... :P

@hybrid: I did the same with SH2 :-) ... and it was a great feeling to "listen" to the score while watching the movie :) I wish you GOOD LUCK!;-)


El Baradei2013-04-30 22:45:59
You all are crazy. It's just music.


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-30 23:09:16
Err... No, it's not JUST music... :)


Mike2013-04-30 23:22:50
I've never purposefully tried it, but I can say that when I see a movie with a good score without having heard any of the music first, I do get a certain appreciation for it that's not there if I listen to the music then watch the movie.


Ds2013-05-01 00:39:56
I always prefer watching a movie after listening to the score. At least for Zimmer ones :) re-watching POTC 3 now is just a dream!


Mike2013-05-01 04:32:10
I agree sometimes, Ds. The Dark Knight specifically did that for me. I had heard the score quite a bit before seeing the movie, and when I saw the movie finally (which is fantastic in and of itself), I was struck a lot of times by how well the music fit with the film (for example, I had heard the "I'm Not a Hero" track many times, and when I saw it in the movie and we heard the "DA DA.....DA DA...DA-DUH DUH" when Batman jumped off the building in Hong Kong, that just about blew me away). Also after hearing the Buyer Beware track, and finally "seeing" the music kick in when Batman grabbed the barrel of the fake Batman's gun... Oh man, it was awesome.


Ds2013-05-01 11:32:39
Hahaha, so true Mike! :)

Its all about the drums now...

Last year it was all about the chant...



Anonymous2013-05-01 10:43:04
Luckily stuff I like most in modern soundtracks and trailer music are chants and drums. So does most modern people so this score will kick ass and be a total succes.


Anonymous2013-05-01 10:52:10
I hate samples. Esp when the release is more than one month ahead. I wish I didn't listen cause I am uber excited now...

From Amazon:

"The challenges of creating a Superman score are daunting because Superman is so iconographic, said Snyder. I really feel like what Hans created is perfect. Subtle and stirring, epic and commanding. Honestly, Hans crushed it.
Both the standard and deluxe editions will include the epic track Man of Steel (Hans Original Sketchbook) which clocks in at over 28 minutes long. This exclusive track is performed solely by Zimmer, and allows listeners to experience firsthand his initial experiments with the film's music, which ultimately lay the foundation for the film's final score.

The deluxe edition will be housed in a special embossed steel case, contain 24 score selections, and give fans the ability to access multiple videos showing an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the music.

In addition to his orchestral arrangements, Zimmer, no stranger to stepping outside the confines of traditional film scoring, has assembled two unique musical entities to contribute music to Man of Steel. The first, a drum orchestra, which was brought together for the album, is described by soundtrack co-producer Peter Asher as some of the best drummers in the world all playing simultaneously in a space designed for a symphony orchestra using not only rock drum kits but tympani and field drums as well.


Mike2013-04-27 06:51:05
Whoaaaaa....28 minutes....that's not Hans' longest track, is it?


Ds2013-04-27 09:08:42
This is just exciting!! Can't wait anymore.


Edmund Meinerts2013-04-27 09:46:57
Goddamn. 28 minutes?? I can't even load that into Audiosurf!


Mike2013-04-27 09:49:18
I think the videos sound kinda interesting. Also, I'm glad that if there's going to be a giant suite, it will be on the CD. "Wayne Manor" and "Bane" were way too good to be relegated to an app.


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-27 15:34:18
And the original suite is even bigger, 35 minutes, HZ cut it down to 28...


Guitwo2013-04-27 16:06:52
hybrid: a chance to get the uncut suite at one point in the future?


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-27 16:08:43
(facepalm)

Man it's what HZ told me, what did you expect ?


Guitwo2013-04-27 16:25:42
nothing special just more music to appreciate Zimmer's work on MOS.

you're (hz told you) talking aboiut an uncut suite of 35minutes. it makes hell of diference when you know that the suite in the album is "just" 28minutes :) haha especially when you're fan :D

i know people who are able to kill for those 7minutes :D


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-27 16:28:16
Like TDK, those "minutes" are probably somewhere else in the score cues, hence why being cut... ;)


Guitwo2013-04-27 16:42:38
just kidding :)

thanks for the information :)


Jasper2013-04-27 20:22:15
This feels like it's going to be a very complete collection, especially the Limited Edition. 2011 has been one of the worst years in Hans Zimmer releases (not the worst music, but worst releases), 2012 felt a bit empty, with The Dark Knight Rises being the only thing noteworthy (I didn't enjoy Madagascar 3 that much), 2013 is already shaping up to be an excellent Zimmer year, both with the music, and with the releases. This one looks to be a very thorough collection, and we've got at least 2 more Zimmer scores coming our way. Props to the man!


uga2013-04-28 01:57:19
Yeah, when I think 2011 and Zimmer...all I can think of is that atrocious Pirates 4, and the decent, but not great Game of Shadows. Albeit some good bootleg releases though.


Magnus Rex2013-04-28 04:21:27
"Those fans who purchase the CD version of the deluxe edition will have the opportunity to download all 24 songs in DTS Headphone: X, which reproduces a cinematic multi-speaker surround sound experience using only the user's headphones. DTS Headphone:X presents a whole new way to hear mobile entertainment over headphones."

Sounds good!

Possibly the second disk is suites?

Medigo2013-04-26 11:53:43
Suites like the Bane/Wayne Mayor suites from TDKR is possible

still means we get less then half of the actual movie score, probably


Pluto2013-04-26 14:27:51
There is something you have to remember Mike. Hans does often times write long music pieces that span ten minutes or so. Look at the Dark Knight soundtrack, that was 74 minutes and contained only 14 tracks. So it's possible that CD 1 could contain the music all the way up to number 14, and then disc 2 could contain the rest. Might not work that way, it's just an example, but never just look at the number of songs in a soundtrack. :)


Ds2013-04-26 15:19:01
Pluto i think you're right because both releases have 2 CD!


Guitwo2013-04-26 18:18:02
look at gladiator 18 tracks, 1h19minutes of music. One CD. And two long tracks

you can't conclude anything from a tracklist. ^^


Trent Easton Navarro2013-04-26 18:42:00
Or Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Both contain roughly an hour of music divided over five tracks


Mike2013-04-26 21:34:30
True point. "A Dark Knight" was 16 minutes, "Wayne Manor" was 22 minutes, "Bane" was 20 minutes, "Alabama" was 24 minutes, "1SQ" was 18 minutes, "Rocket Away" was 14 minutes...We'll have to wait and see.


Guitwo2013-04-27 01:02:48
science and religion 'bout 12minutes and 6 months recovery in SH 18minutes :D

TDKR (album version) was correct with a maximum of 7 minutes for two tracks.
