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???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 movie
Been watching it on the BBC and Balfes score is breathtakingI don't think you want the general public nominating film buenoquero baixarFYC 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 yearsProposal.<br><br>Hi I’m visiting Marid in April to see Hans live.

find the mistake:
official score 24 tracks
your complete score 13 tracks...

Areozz2014-06-28 13:58:25
I'm confused. Now the list has two more tracks and it stops at "Are you Listening Clark?". I'm pretty sure that isn't where the movie ends. Also, I'm certain that the registered track titles for the whole score aren't just slight variations of titles of track off the OST.

Joe-El's Left Nut2014-06-29 01:18:14
Why are you all even debating this? This is utterly fake and not worth anyone's time. It has 13 tracks, ffs

Thanks for advance.

DNA reply Replies: 2 || 2014-07-12 16:36:22
My heart still bleeds that the 'Arcade' on the soundtrack does not sound the same as the one in the film. I honestly feel like they pulled a fast one on us (or just me) by not making the film version available. I bought the standard soundtrack & the deluxe edition HOPING it would be somewhere in there... nothing. The only way I can listen to it is by watching the film and even then it is only about a minute long & is muddled between explosions and a shouting Russel Crowe :'(

I'm a disappointed, heartbroken fan to say the least.

Ds reply Replies: 8 || 2014-06-15 20:24:40
Let's talk about this leaked "big DC plan". I know it is still a rumor, but if it appears to be true, how will they handle that?

I guess Batman v Superman, Justice League and Man of Steel 2 will be shot back-to-back to fit the tight release schedule (May 2016-2017-2018), and I don't imagine them having different composers so... will Hans Zimmer score all three?

And who's going to handle the other individual DC movies (Wonder Woman, Flash & Green Lantern, Sandman, etc)? They will all need a main theme, which should be featured in Justice League. All of these movies are strongly linked to each other and will be released in a 2-year span. And I think (hope) DC will try to keep kind of a musical continuity in their universe.

Personnally I would like to see one RCP composer for each character. These guys are used to work together so it should not be a problem for them to score all of these movies approximately at the same time. What do you think?

Edmund Meinerts2014-06-15 20:32:55
That's kind of a cool idea, actually. Have one guy from RCP score each character in their own movie, and then bring them all in under Hans Zimmer's roof on the Justice League movie, but still doing additionals for the scenes containing "their" character. The question with that, of course, is how to keep it more or less cohesive; ideally I'd want those composers to stick to their own styles, not try and write something as close to Hans as possible and end up having everything sound the same.

Hybrid Soldier2014-06-15 20:36:36
Yeah Junkie could do the General Zod film...

Oh wait he's gone... lol

Macejko2014-06-15 20:56:55

Batman for Ramin (dark, raw and epic)
Green Lantern for Jabs (heroic sci-fi)
Wonder Woman for Mark Mancina (tribal amazonian adventure

Hybrid Soldier2014-06-15 21:55:56
I'd go with Junkie for Wonder Woman, with some alien approach like Zod...

Atli should do someone... :)

Ds2014-06-15 22:01:52
Of course Atli should be in there. He's such a good composer, he's just never been given an occasion to shine :-(

what exactly is the deal with the "this is clark kent" track from CD1? it doesn't play anywhere in the movie....was it written for some scene then scrapped? also weird because it's in the sketchbook suite, so if it wasn't ever going to be used anywhere, why have it on the album twice like that?

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-04 20:52:22
Yeah it's just a section of the Sketchbook, slightly edited (and a few percs added at the end)...

Since the suite is not on the 1 CD version of the score, I guess it was just for those getting the 1 CD version to have that theme...

Mike2014-05-04 20:52:59
Wow, Hybrid, you'll just full of bright ideas! First adding partial credits, then putting in parentheses whose themes are used in certain cues (like POTC2). Good ideas all around.

To Anonymous:
The track "This is Clark Kent" does play in the movie, or at least a short portion of it. You can ear it just after Clark saved Lois in the escape pod, when they're slowly reaching the ground and Lois is explaining she was forced to talk...

Witam. Pochodzę z Polski i chciałem się podzielić moimi wrażeniami na temat tego ARCYDZIEŁA. Gdy po raz pierwszy obejrzałem film, od razu zwróciłem uwagę na muzykę i wiedziałem, że muszę ją mieć! No i tak to się zaczęło. Od tamtej pory słuchałem już wiele razy i nadal nie mogę wyjść z podziwu! To co stworzył Han, jest po prostu...Genialne!!!Innego słowa nie znajduję. Od pierwszej do ostatniej nuty zapiera dech w piersiach! A ilości wylanych łez nie zliczę. W tym momencie jest to mój NUMER 1 Hansa Zimmera i chyba długo nim pozostanie. To chyba tyle. Pozdrawiam wszystkich fanów Hansa, a także Człowieka Ze Stali!

Welcome. I come from Poland and I wanted to share my impressions about this MASTERPIECE. When I first saw the film, I immediately drew attention to the music, and I knew I had to have it! And so it began. Since then, I have listened to it many times and I still can't get over it! This, what Hans created, is just ... brilliant! I can't find another word to describe it. From the first to the last note it is breathtaking! I have shed a quantity of tears I can't count. At the moment it is my NUMBER 1 Hans Zimmer soundtrack and will remain long in this position. It's probably enough. Greetings to all fans of Hans, and Man Of Steel!

And there will be a new Batman theme. Really excited.

If that is true, then I have to say I'm really excited that Hans will return to score Man of Steel 2 (Batman vs Superman). I can't wait to hear Hans develop his superman theme even more in the second movie. And it's awesome that he will come it with a new Batman theme too! :D

It's kind of interesting, because after Interstellar, I'm not exactly sure what is on Hans' plate. You have any ideas Hybrid? It might give Hans a great deal of time to score the film and get lots of new ideas. Who knows, he might even write a Wonder Woman theme as well.

This is your answer. Clemmensen doesn't hate Jackman as much as he hates Zimmer. Maybe in a few years Jackman will become higher-profile and then Clemmensen will bash him way harder.

Edmund Meinerts2014-04-15 10:43:28
Part of the reason has to do with the fact that the better parts of Winter Soldier are more orchestral (with trumpets, some woodwinds etc.) than the better parts of Man of Steel. But yeah, it doesn't make any sense to me either...

Which was the original, the album version of Flight or the movie version with the strings added? I assume the album one was the original and then the music editor added the strings later, but I could be wrong.

Dan2013-09-30 10:02:49
Not sure, but the version with strings is far superior. I hope this appears at some point.

Lalam2013-11-16 21:04:39
I knew others would hear this. For a moment I just thought it was my surround sound picking up something my headphones wouldn't, but it's far too clear to just be a hidden instrument. The chorus is also a bit more muted in the film, which sounds much better to me.

I think we'll have to wait for someone to make a rip based on the film, if anything. The problem is that very few people are actually going to recognize that there's a difference, so I don't believe there's any demand for a rip to be released.

It's a shame, though. It is definitely superior, as Dan said.

toerti2014-03-27 18:42:57
I would also love to get hands on 'Flight' - the movie version.
I do think as well that it is by far superior to the album version!
Also I hope that there might be a DTS 5.1 Mix coming. Since they already spend extra hours for the DTS-Headphone version it might be a small step to bring up an DTS 5.1 discrete version.

Dude, Hybrid posted this list a while

Areozz2014-01-14 17:08:57
Leaked? From where? Your anus? Or what? I'm so confused. A track list that has been available to the public since very early on in the score's release is considered a leak?

A feat that would be more impressive is if you could list those track titles in chronological order rather than alphabetical.

MacArthur2014-01-14 17:14:44
People just stop needing to worry about the complete score. the man of steel Deluxe edition pretty much has everything noteworthy, if not everything.

Now for some other scores that's a different story but just leave this one alone

Mike2014-01-14 17:19:31
Well-said, MacArthur. There's ONE cue that I wish were on the album that isn't, and that can be easily found on the internet.

SanAntonioSpurs2014-01-14 17:48:59
Just i want, ESCAPE FROM SHIP and FIRST FLIGHT (First Flight secret violin sound omg! very good.. :D )

MacArthur2014-01-14 19:22:51
Wasn't Escape from the ship DNA or Terraforming, and In the Sketchbook.

Mike2014-01-14 19:42:45
Escape From Ship is indeed awesome, but First Flight is on the album! And the strings in the movie detract from, not add to, the music IMO.

Mike2014-01-14 19:43:40
And no, Escape From Ship is nowhere on the album.

Hybrid Soldier2014-01-14 19:57:35
Actually for First Flight there's just a slight different mix... All the strings you mention are on the OST, it's just there's totally buried under the rest.

Mike2014-01-14 20:11:23
Oh, really? I wouldn't have realized that.

Mortifer V.2014-01-15 03:00:13
"Escape from Ship" (and "Escape from Ship (alt.)" I guess), "Superman Rescues Mother/Smallville" and "Zod's Story pt 2" are not on any official album and are pretty great tracks. I'm waiting mainly for those...

badbu2014-01-15 08:05:13
@Mortifer V. 100% right!!! :)

Lalam2014-01-19 20:01:52
@Hybrid Soldier I've spent quite a while listening to as many variants of the theme as I could gather, and the strings are nonexistent, not buried, which is what I originally thought.

Contrary to Mike, I believe the strings make the piece significantly better, and I have a hard time listening to it knowing how much better it could sound.

Gladius2014-03-21 11:10:33
I recreated the music from the falling escape pod, now I've done the Escape From Ship piece too. Look up James Wong Hans Zimmer Escape From Ship.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 clip with Hans Zimmer's score.

cody2014-03-12 17:20:36
loving it and i love that that cue used in the trailer is there as well, that paranoia song.

"My pulse is racing
Mental torture self destroyer
Calling card with paranoia
Slipping something mind distracting
Agony inside of me"

Mike2014-03-12 18:26:17
Eh....honestly, I don't like it.

Ds2014-03-12 18:31:37
The end of that track suggests Hans might go full dubstep for Electro... that could be amazing. But maybe it's just a trailer music, it happens sometimes in movie clips...

Mike2014-03-12 20:01:27
Unless Pharrell wrote it? He is listed as a composer for the score, yes?

Anonymous2014-03-12 20:16:57
More TASM2 score in here beginning at 0:35. Uses part of Zimmer's website theme. com/watch?v=rZpC6JisY4Y

Mike, yesterday i listened to Pharrell's latest album, and what a collection of shit it was in my opinion... I can't imagine him writing something original. All radio-formated songs that you know entirely after having listened to 30 seconds of them.

Anybody else notice the "Arcade" rhythm sprinkled throughout certain tracks like Flight and If You Love These People? Guess that's JunkieXL's influence. :)

Mike2014-03-11 23:42:36
Indeed, it was also in the epic cue when Superman saved Lois in the falling escape pod.... :) I know it's been mentioned a thousand times on this thread, but why that wasn't included on this album is beyond me. Flight, If You Love These People, that cue, and of course What Are You, etc.... are really powerful cues, and are what I was hoping more of the score would end up sounding like.

Edmund Meinerts2014-03-12 00:41:33
Given that that rhythm has appeared in previous scores, e.g. King Arthur ("Woad to Ruin" at 1:20 or so), I'm not sure it should be considered proof positive of Junkie XL's involvement...

Yeah, Mike, I hear you. Those are pretty much my favorite cues from the score as well (plus "Goodbye My Son" and parts of "Terraforming"). Some of the few cues where there is some actual feeling behind the music and the drums actually feel like they're driving things along rather than just making a bunch of noise. :p

Anonymous reply Replies: 7 || 2014-01-27 15:11:16
...was JunkieXl behind all the rhythm design in this score?

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-27 16:31:32
Some of it, probably, but I'm guessing a lot of it came from Zimmer's much-hyped drum circle.

Ds2014-01-27 17:06:44
... drum circle conducted by Junkie XL :D

Additional Music & Rhythm Design: Junkie XL

Anonymous2014-01-27 19:03:50
Yeah but"Additional Music & Rhythm Design" could have been saying "Additional music and ADDITIONAL rhythm design" or "additional music and ALL rhythm design". It could mean either one. ;)

Hybrid Soldier2014-01-27 21:19:57
It's pretty clear to me...

Additional Music


Rhythm Design


Mike2014-01-27 21:28:11
This could all be clarified by simply switching the order: Rhythm Design and Additional Music By JunkieXL. That makes it obvious that the "additional" is going with "Music", not also with "Rhythm Design".

But is this conversation really being had? :P

Mike reply Replies: 12 || 2014-01-18 22:08:16
There's something interesting I thought about recently...Somebody on here gave a criticism of this score along the lines of, "It takes itself too seriously". Well, interestingly enough, one of the very things that John Williams said he appreciated about the old Superman was that it didn't take itself too seriously, and that he didn't want the music to be too self-serious either. Zimmer's approach, regardless of whether one finds it good or bad, is entirely different, and he attempts to approach these characters as if they were real.

MacArthur2014-01-19 02:21:00
Of which I love. I love it when you take character's seriously.

Anonymous2014-01-19 04:58:06
I totally agree, Mike. There is an absolute persona in many of the tracks. And, I think, it works superb. When you listen to the score away from the film and make the mental association of the music to the film's character, the music becomes the character. Perhaps that's another reason it's so effective and just organically great!

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-19 14:02:13
There's a difference between taking your characters seriously and sapping all of the fun and personality out of a thing.

Mike2014-01-19 19:36:38
I agree, Meinerts. I still do like MoS' score overall, but it was a much more successful (and sensible) endeavor with Batman—though some, perhaps you yourself, would argue otherwise even there.

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-19 19:54:07
Zimmer's Batman scores aren't the sort of music I particularly enjoy listening to front-to-back (although each of them has highlights), but at least there I feel like the super-serious-droning approach was a viable one for the character. Applying a similar tone to Superman felt wrong, though, and I feel like Zimmer missed the boat. Although so did Snyder, so perhaps he was just scoring the film he got.

I personally like music that doesn't take itself seriously, that is fun and loud and over-the-top, has personality and obvious themes. Hence why I gravitate more towards the 90s MV scores and their later offshoots like Transformers and King Arthur and Pirates and (this year) The Lone Ranger and Planes. To a certain extent, and despite what I said above about it working in that case, I blame Nolan and Batman Begins for kind of changing Zimmer's style/attitude toward scoring for the worse - or at least, I think it's worse.

With a bit of luck, Spider-Man will be a return to that less serious tone. Or perhaps "less serious" is the wrong thing to say - I think you can still take your characters perfectly seriously without sacrificing a sense of fun in the music.

Mike2014-01-19 20:01:16
"I think you can still take your characters perfectly seriously without sacrificing a sense of fun in the music."

That statement calls for a toast. lol.

MacArthur 2014-01-19 21:04:07
Crimson Tide wasn't Serious? That Is Probably his best 90s score.

Mike2014-01-19 21:48:52
Zimmer's "90s scores" encompass a lot more than just Crimson Tide... ;)

Ds2014-01-19 22:17:41
Edmund, i understand perfectly what you mean and i feel the same, there was more pure fun in HZ 90s scores. However i still like his new style and i think it's good that he changes. After all he's a man, his life changes, so why not his music? Everybody has to evolve. The good news is: his old scores still exist!! So it's not like we were loosing something, no, we just get 3-4 new soundtracks each year, HZ's discography is growing and we still can pick up the ones we prefer. If you don't like the new ones, no problem, the old ones are still around.

And from time to time HZ gets back to his roots, see Rush for example which is imo an outstanding score, immediately enjoyable, bombastic, fun, uplifting and moving.

Mike2014-01-20 00:55:05
This isn't related to the topic at hand, but I don't feel like making a new post: the MoS sequel has been delayed until 2016. I now feel certain Zimmer will end up agreeing to do it. ;)

Drunkenmunkey2014-01-20 20:03:54
If it was 2015 the entire production would be rushed. I want it to be the best that they can be, and now I fell like they have adequate time to do so. If hans is doing it by himself, he still has spidey and interstellar -.-. He has to compose new stuff for supes and lex along with an entirely new theme for batfleck. I still hope they bring someone else on for batfleck's theme and leave superman and the villain theme for hans

Mike2014-01-22 03:14:15
On the contrary, I'd welcome a new theme for Batman from Zimmer (hopefully very different from his last one) and I'd have someone else do the villain themes (I found the Zod themes in MoS to be entertaining but too simplistic). Still, I can understand the argument that Zimmer shouldn't be allowed to do a Batman score yet AGAIN. I can't deny I'd be curious to know what another Batman theme would sound like, though.

Hispano reply Replies: 10 || 2014-01-16 23:57:17
Why Zimmer was not nominated? At least Man of Steel was a good job, same as Rush. The Lone Ranger (obviously disqualified when using the classic theme of william tell overture) and 12 years a slave (the worst could not win). Easy for Gravity. Buena pelicula de Cuarón.

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-17 00:16:28
Because the Oscars don't like blockbusters is your answer for Man of Steel. Rush probably came out a bit too early to hit the awards season wave. Lone Ranger, again, blockbuster, plus was critically savaged for reasons I still don't quite understand - I don't think the William Tell overture would have been a problem, though, considering The Social Network won a few years ago and that had a cue based on Hall of the Mountain King. 12YAS was Zimmer's best shot at a nomination, but I'm really relieved it wasn't, as it most certainly would not have deserved it.

NM2014-01-17 01:08:12
I don't really think HZ produced anything amazing this year that warranted huge recognition. Then again, I don't really care about the oscars. Great for the people involved, but feels oddly disconnected from the rest of us here in reality. I guess if you follow celebrity culture, then maybe not.

12 years of slave was a repacking of 'Time' and was quite distracting for me during the film. In fact it was probably the only subpar thing about that amazing movie, apart from the slightly weird Pitt character.

I don't necessarily think the Oscars don't like blockbusters, Edmund, I mean even TLR managed to get two nominations while Man of steel got none. If I cared about the oscars, that would probably make me feel vindicated in my opinion that that movie is a pile of obnoxious shit and I don't understand Americans' obsession with stale comic book characters. Maybe the Academy understands that Man of steel is just a really really bad film!?

"plus was critically savaged for reasons I still don't quite understand" - I agree, a lot of people made up their minds about that film before they saw it. It IS an utter mess, its tone IS al l over the place, it is incomprehensible in parts and on first glance it looks like a POTC rip off, but I hate the way we're all attacking a director who at least tried something different. Who spent a bunch of money on a film and actually made it look worth the budget, rather than just a CGI videogame like a lot of modern films. But hey, let's just stick to our lame, endless stream of crappy superhero films instead.

MacArthur2014-01-17 05:04:24
Man of Steel was fantastic. Best movie of the year and a lot of people would agree with me. Wasn't a superman person going into the film but man I hold a lot of respect for him now. (As a fictional Character I mean).

thejok3rrules2014-01-17 05:52:51
Man of Steel was an 'okay' movie... Calm down, mate...

Ds2014-01-17 10:22:51
Agree with MacArthur here. For me "Man of Steel" wasn't the best movie of the year, but by far the best blockbuster of this year. Its majesty, its serious tone, its perfect casting (Russell Crowe + Kevin Costner, what an inspired choice), its wonderful cinematography, the sense of urgency in the action scenes, along with a powerful and moving score by HZ. You won't find these qualities in any Marvel movie, for example. But it's a matter of taste, some people hated Man of Steel just because it was serious and "loud".

NM2014-01-17 11:37:33

"Man of Steel was fantastic. Best movie of the year and a lot of people would agree with me."

Off the top of my head I can think of 10 films that were better: Philomena, 12 years a slave, Filth, Saving Mr Banks, Alpha Papa, The World's End, Captain Phillips, Gravity, The Hobbit II and What Maisie Knew. A good mix of bigger and smaller films, all of which were *far* more entertaining, insightful and creative than MoS could ever hope to be.


Agree with MacArthur here. For me "Man of Steel" wasn't the best movie of the year, but by far the best blockbuster of this year."

What about 'Gravity'? I'd call that a blockbuster, very populist kind of film.

"Its majesty, its serious tone, its perfect casting (Russell Crowe + Kevin Costner, what an inspired choice),"

I don't remember anything majestic, personally.

"...its wonderful cinematography, the sense of urgency in the action scenes,"

I don't really see how not being able to tell what's happening on is equal to the above. Its cinematography is probably the worst thing about the film. Shaky, blurry, CGI landscapes, where it's not clear where anyone is, or what's going on. The same camera movements repeated over and over. And I don't think there was any urgency at all, because by the end literally everything and everyone was getting blown up, to the point it was numbing. Boom, bang, smash, superman goes through building, superman kills 1000 people, SMASH, explosion, bang bang. It was a videogame by the end of it. Of course a lot of people agree with me that the end of the film is a mess, I differ from many people by suggesting the beginning and middle of the film is awful as well, full of incomprehensible subplots and vacuous characters. The only character I really liked was Clark Kent's mother but even she was shit by the end. From the first minute it was a terrible film and it never stopped being terrible. The only credit I'd give it is its set design and make up is pretty good and I don't have a problem with any of the acting, I think they did their best with some piss poor dialogue.

"some people hated Man of Steel just because it was serious and "loud"."

It *is* loud, but loud in itself doesn't equal 'bad'. TDK films are loud. It's loud in a really obnoxious way. Between the non-stop LOUD explosions and the tedious, irritating LOUD repetition of the same fucking musical cue again and again and again and again it just gave me a headache.

"a powerful and moving score by HZ"

Entertaining on album, where in your head you can imagine a good film going with it. Horrible in the context of the film.

Ds2014-01-17 11:54:19
Well, NM, to each his own tastes. I saw Man of Steel quite a few times on blu-ray and love it even more. I can see what's happening in the action scenes, I love the pictures, I love the characters, I love the action scenes, I love the score.

Gravity, yeah, definitely the very best of the year for me, but for some reason i don't consider it as a blockbuster :p

MacArthur2014-01-17 16:34:56
Agree Ds Gravity wasn't a blockbuster.

Man of steel's Cinematography was fantastic it made the movie seem realistic. the landscapes where beautiful (I don't care where they were) Granted the blowing up buildings was a little much but if two gods came down to earth in full fury. I wouldn't expect anything less. The music score by Hans in the context of the film was perfect. the Piano part for his parent's. the Zod theme for when they were fighting the drums for oil rig, etc so on and so forth.

Man of Steel was an Amazing Movie!
