that would be great@GR7 that sounds really cool care to share?Hi! What's the story with track "Into Space"? They really copy track "Planet Descent" and name it that "Into Space"?I agree guys. Yhis album and parts of the experiments are vey enjoyable. I tend to listen to OST prriodically, and each year there is one or severall scores that replace what I listen the most, and so on... but Dark phoenix is one I can listen every time. <br>I made personal suites assembling music from the OST and mixing it with expremients, and it results in a 50 min suites album, I really like it.Same for me. I'm so happy ! :D
A Celebration? It's actually on youtube now.Got it. I assumed as much for the first 3. Thanks.hahahaha ... crack, sorry. Well so far there is no news of anything. Only the video that one track and one with Dave, but it's a preview.<br>I'm not sure how to get news on this, I really would like to get it hahaha.Isabel Suite = Isabel the Strong<br>Thadeous Suite = Thadeous<br>The Quest Suite = Let Us Quest!<br><br>End credits is probably ripped from the film.> Fair enough, but I know for a fact that Steve was inspired by Harry Potter because of the complete score track "Tavern Fighting (Part 1)".

Those are very similar.<br><br>Btw, I have some "expanded" version of the score, which seems to be identical to the complete score on this site, aside from the fact that it's missing the last 4 tracks.

Yes, I was referring to A Celebration. "It's out there" as in "it can be obtained unofficially". Were you referring to the Sia track? That is on Bleeding Fingers', but you can find it on the bleeding fingers page.<br>it also doesn't look like planet eart: a celebration has a release :(Well, it's out there.

Need to ask, who's willing to make a chronological order of the tracks? Because I believe this score will be enjoyed even better chronologically.

God I love this film, and score.

Mike2013-06-16 04:34:40
I second this. A chronological ordering would be appreciated.

Everan2013-06-16 05:07:05
Look to the Stars
Goodbye My Son
General Zod
Krypton's Last.
Oil Rig.

Managed to get those so far, missing one or two around. The last two tracks are:

If You Love These People
What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?

There's still like 2 whole action sequences that don't feature music in the score.

Meta2013-06-16 07:15:44
Terraforming is the comp. music for the climax

You Die OR I Do is obviously the end fight between Zod and Superman

I Do believe the various music from General Zod and Arcade comprise the fight in Smallville...

Everan2013-06-16 19:13:19
Actually, You Die Or I Do is before the Smallvile Brawl, and I believe it's used again before If You Love These People.

Have to see it again to be sure.

Richard2013-06-16 19:32:36
Well first, there are Everan's listings.
"I Have So Many Questions" is when Superman finds the ship and the ghost of his father, which would be followed by some Lois Lane pieces.
There doesn't seem to be any trace of Lois Lane's theme in the soundtrack, so those cues cannot be placed into the order.
Then, once Lois finally finds him, there is "Tornado" for the flashback.

Terraforming is the beginning of the climax, as Meta said. You Die Or I Do is the beginning of Zod's fight with Superman, which then ends in "If You Love These People".
The last track is What Are You Going To Do When You're Not Saving The World is the last track.

Richard2013-06-16 19:59:19
Oh wait, don't forget "Flight" after "I Have So Many Questions"!

Camuflage2013-06-16 21:08:11

Camuflage 2013-06-16 21:07:31
Are you sure "if you love these people" is not heart twice in the movie? When Kyrpton is destroyed ...?
About "flight" , are you talking about part 1 or 2?

I did not include This Is Madness since I think it's more of a demo track or something. Still not sure about "This Is Clark Kent", can't remember it in the film. I placed the sketchbook at the end, kinda like a very long credits track.

If you can remember more, please do tell, I really want everyone to have a chrono order of this awesome score.

Marco2013-06-17 12:29:19
Isn't 'you die or I do' after 'terraforming' but before 'if you love these people'?

Everan2013-06-17 16:14:25
I think the tracks goes where I put it and where you say it goes. I remember very well this particular track since they released a clip with Kal throwing Zod through a building and crashing on a gas station, and the track plays there so I put it there, sort of.

Need to see the film again to be sure.

Eric2013-06-17 18:35:22
Glad to see someone else is trying to sort this out as well. I think your list is really close. I moved This is Madness to the beginning of the film, I'm pretty sure it's played when Zod is introduced. Also, I'm 90% sure that "This is Clark Kent" is played during the final flashback to a young Clark at the end of the film, and serves as a lead to the Daily Planet and the end of the film.

Look To The Stars
This Is Madness!
Goodbye My Son
I Will Find Him
Krypton's Last
Oil Rig
Are You Listening, Clark?
Sent Here For A Reason
I Have So Many Questions
General Zod
You Led Us Here
You Die Or I Do
If You Love These People
What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?
This Is Clark Kent
Man Of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook)

The only track I'm having problems placing is "Earth", which is a very quiet and peaceful track. I'm thinking it's after "I Have So Many Questions" but before "Flight", but I'm not sure.

Richard2013-06-21 19:17:04
Pretty sure "If You Love These People" is just that one scene. And Flight is one track. He takes off into the air, the first part plays. Then he crashes into a mountain, then flies again, where the second part plays.

Ds2013-06-21 19:26:22
The entire "If you love these people" track is the last part of Zod vs Superman fight. BUT the theme heard in that track comes also a couple of minutes earlier in the movie, between "Terraforming" and "You Die Or I Do". Only for a few seconds, but it's definitely there :)

D A R T H2013-06-24 10:21:24
all tracks from CD 2 are demos or remixes

Mike2013-06-24 21:54:30
Actually, D A R T H, "You Led Us Here" and "Are You Listening, Clark?" are cues. The rest of CD 2 is indeed suites and demos.

D A R T H2013-06-25 10:06:57

Medigo2013-06-25 20:57:38
I believe 'You Die or I Do' is also slightly extended in the movie

Erin2013-06-25 22:43:11
Eric, your track listing is exactly the order I put the tracks in after I'd wanted to create a playlist that follows the film's plot progression (suites and remixes aside I felt they could still get put in an order roughly following plot chronology). I love this soundtrack and I'd wanted to recreate the experience of seeing the movie in music form and I think that order's a pretty solid one for that purpose.

As for "Earth," I'm still not sure where I ought to put it, either, so it's currently sitting at the bottom of the list after "What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World?" but before the bonus Sketchbook. Any recommendations where thematically or musically anyone feels it fits in nicely would be appreciated!

Drunkenmunkey2013-06-26 02:48:55
The first fight between Faora and Superman seems to use the arcade and later when faora is attacking the marines it goes into a mix of Arcade and This is Madness!

GarethW_12013-06-29 10:26:46
For what it's worth, I used Eric's order, but with a few tweaks. I put "Earth" between "Krypton's Last" and "oil Rig." I don't know if it's right chronologically, but listening to the full soundtrack, it fits quite well there. I also swapped "This is Clark Kent" and "What are you going to do..." around. Again, it may not be correct chronologically, but I think it works better that way round.

Radik2013-06-29 12:52:21

Just reading the filmtracks (prohibited name here?) review of the score . --> "he [Zimmer] has landed himself in assignments not befitting his capabilities" This guy from filmtracks has so much crap in the brain....

Brent2013-06-24 10:00:40
That guy just drives me nuts.

Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 11:06:07
He knows what he's talking about and I agree with a lot of his points in that Man of Steel review, even though it's overly harsh in a few places. I particularly agree with the way he picks apart Zimmer's interview words. I don't get how he (Zimmer) can set himself up as a champion of orchestral music when he's constantly slathering that orchestra with synth/sample overdubs that make the entire thing sound fake and cheap.

There's a difference between justified negative criticism and bashing, and I think a few people around here would do well to learn it.

0-cool2013-06-24 11:37:31
I don't think that Zimmer ever claimed to write orchestral/symphonic music.
He takes inspiration from many genres, like pop/rock/electronic

tomPoland2013-06-24 12:12:48
One star is a little too harsh, but guy has the point.
This music sounds cheap and fake, and Zimmer always talk big in interviews. HZ should take a break and rethink his career, or we will have that awful inception-sound in every future movie.

Star Trek FTW! :)

Meta2013-06-24 16:10:09
Filmtracks guy has a thing for Zimmer, so I usually tend to take his reviews of his works with a large grain of salt.

But if you ask me, Zimmer isn't the only one out there - just the most popular one - so really that reviewer needs to be more even keeled about his critical bashings, because he comes off more like who hates Zimmer first and foremost. And how can you really trust a score review with that kind of bias?

The man TOILS in picking apart Zimmer, you can tell there's some kind of vendetta going on there that I am not interested in associating myself with.

Master2013-06-24 20:33:14
Not necessarily a vendetta, he views zimmer as most people, including myself, view justin bieber; awful and a waste of talent. And any chance he gets, he likes to remind us all of that. It's not unusual to have absolute hatred towards something or someone now, is it?

Mike2013-06-24 20:36:50
The filmtracks guy has valid points, but it does seem like he's predisposed to dislike anything Zimmer makes these days. I agree with Meta: he toils in picking apart Zimmer. I don't like synthesizers and would gladly see them go. But if Hans can make a good score with them (and he usually can), then I'm not gonna get too worked up about it. The only modern Zimmer score that was too noticeably heavy on the synth was Inception, but honestly, I think that was more Lorne than Hans, since Lorne was the one who arranged the music in the film. The Mombasa suite does kinda sound like dubstep, so shame on Zimmer for that, but otherwise the really electronic stuff you're hearing is cues by Lorne Balfe based on Zimmer's themes (did I ever mention Lorne should get co-composer credit for that movie? :P).

Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 21:19:50
I don't mind the use of synth in most cases. The way, say, John Powell or David Arnold integrate electronics is awesome, because they don't tamper with the orchestra and use the drum loops and such to expand the sonic palette, to do things that live instruments just can't. But the way Zimmer does it is by using not only unique synth textures, but also covering up the orchestral performance with sampled versions of the same instruments, which completely robs the live players of their organic sound. In certain cases, like Inception, it works...but then that Inception synth brass started being used in every single score (and trailer) and it got old REALLY quickly. I genuinely like the "What Will You...etc." cue, but it would sound SO much better if the brass was able to belt out that heroic theme without the "aid" of samples that really only make it sound cheap. Or take Oblivion, which is a Zimmer score in all but name, but which maintains a great organic sound by keeping its orchestral and electronic components separate.

The way Zimmer is doing it, I fear people will look back on his recent scores the same way we look back on Harold Faltermeyer today: yes, maybe it'll elicit a nostalgic grin or two, but it runs the risk of becoming extremely dated. The beautiful thing about orchestras is that they sounded the same 200 years ago and they'll sound the same 200 years from now...I hear a lot of folk claim that they're "old-fashioned", but in reality they're timeless. And that's why John Williams' Superman fanfare will live on when Man of Steel is forgotten.

Mike2013-06-24 21:44:30
Didn't AWE use a real orchestra? That might contribute to the reason it's such a good score...

Aragorn2013-06-24 21:49:44
"Or take Oblivion, which is a Zimmer score in all but name..."

Best comment ever. xD

Lucius2013-06-24 22:06:37
The guy at Filmtracks also said Revenge of the Sith was "the good but badly frayed edge" of the Star Wars scores, but if you ask me it was the most powerful and moving of all of them.

Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 22:07:23
Even in At World's End the brass occasionally sounds a bit sample-ish (it shows in the uber-dramatic Davy Jones theme statement in "Crew Embarks"). I guess it's just something Zimmer likes to do. But yes, that score is easily one of Zimmer's most organic-sounding, which is just one of the reasons I love it so much.

Can someone tell me exactly what cues were used in the scene when Clark saved the school bus? I know it uses 0:32-1:30 in "Flight", but what was after/around that? Was the other stuff elsewhere on the OST or not? Also, when the dude found his truck after leaving the bar, was that the end of "This is Clark Kent" or just something like it?

Ds2013-06-24 09:43:37
For the bus scene, you're right and i don't think there's something else. In the truck scene you're also correct, it's basically the very end of This Is Clark Kent but the mix is a bit different.

Mike reply Replies: 9 || 2013-06-23 02:03:13
"Flight" is one of the few instances where I prefer the album version over the film version. The strings added in the film feel unnecessary and forced, in my opinion. Almost like "we need to do everything we can do make this scene blow people away, so here, let's add strings!" But the music already worked as-was. Either way, that was one of the best scenes I've watched in a while.

Richard2013-06-23 06:10:29
Yay, someone else who noticed the extra strings! :P

Ds2013-06-23 16:43:40
Val, this version is actually a part of the track "Original Sketchbook", followed by the 2nd part of the track "Flight", that's it :p

Val2013-06-23 16:50:27
Ah.. sorry ;-). Me, i'm always searching for the track played during the fall of the ship.. Or when he saves "someone" and i can't find it anywhere that's so frustrating because this song is so epic -_-

Ds2013-06-23 17:10:43
I'm afraid you won't find these bits until the recording sessions have leaked, but i don't think it's going to happen soon...

Mike2013-06-24 04:10:55
Ds, you say you don't think the recording sessions will leak soon. Well, we got TDKR's recording sessions (or complete score or whatever it's technically called) a couple months before TDKR's DVD/Blu-Ray release. So it might not take too long. ;)

Does anybody know what part of the movie contains the last part of "General Zod"? The very last section of the song with the slow, sad version of his theme played with lots of strings.

It's not used in the film, sadly.

anon reply Replies: 4 || 2013-06-23 18:09:26
I've realized that while the music in this score is amazing, I find the mix and master make it very difficult for me to listen to. The strings are very poorly mixed (violins are all you can hear most of the time), brass sounds synthy in a lot of moments, and the drums tend to be too overwhelming (which I've never said about a Zimmer score, I always love his drums). The master is also weird. Too many high-mid frequencies and ridiculously extreme dynamics make it hard to listen to in casual environments (car, running with ipod, etc.)

Now, I have still yet to hear the 7.1 mix, so maybe that's better, but I'm really not a fan of the stereo mix/master.

Edmund Meinerts2013-06-23 23:29:19
Brass ALWAYS sounds synthy in Zimmer's scores, especially post-Inception. It's bloody annoying if you ask me. :/

Ds2013-06-24 00:18:52
Zimmer's brass: i'm loving it.

score_trader2013-06-24 02:03:32
exactly what I thought when I first heard the samples, if you won't want to lose your lunch, I wouldn't watch the featurette that has clips of the recording sessions. Everything sounded so much better on the microphone of the fucking film crew than in the actual sound track.

anon2013-06-24 02:26:07
Sadly, I have seen the featurette. It is sad how much clearer and better everything sounded on the built-in mic than than the CD...

already saw the movie twice. the audio mixing is sometimes not as good as it could/should be.
the biggest problem of MoS is: Cinematography. really a pain in the *ss. i don't understand the need to make that camera shaky from the shot to the last one. it's unbelievable.

Ds2013-06-23 13:47:45
Usually i really don't like shaky-cam, but here i found it was well made. It brought a sense of speed and urgency, and made all these Super-men more believable. Photography was awesome too.

If you saw it in 3D i can believe this was a pain in the ass. Shaky-cam + postconversion = worst 3D ever.

Guitwo2013-06-23 13:50:28
oh and eventhough on the second viewing it was better I still think this movie lacks time to develop most of his characters (especially Zod). The relationship between the kent and why clark is important to them. Lois and Clark's relationship. i also, wanted to see clark becoming superman in a much longer time.

Guitwo2013-06-23 13:54:37
i saw it in Imax 3D. :D

i understand the need to shake things up during a fight scene or action sequence. What i don't understand is why shake your camera for a dialogue. I was not impressed with the mass destruction because i don't have time to focus on something or pay attention to the details. and you have all these zoom in/oun that are very transformers-like.

Ds2013-06-23 14:49:53
Actually i liked these zoom in/zoom out :p

I think your main problem was caused by the 3D. In 2D i had absolutely no problem to focus on every detail and to enjoy the mass destruction.

In the beginning everything seems to go a bit too fast but then there are a lot of flashback that really help to understand the characters and the relationships. I thought there was a lot of emotion throughout the movie, especially the scenes involving Kevin Costner, perfectly cast imo.

yust saw the movie. I consider myself as a Zimmer fan.
sooo disappointed with the score as it was presented in the movie. the mixing was soo soft and under the sound effects.
when I heard This Is Madness! I thought this is too intense. I knew that this is an unused suite kind of thing. yust as almost the whole deluxe edition thing. oil rig is such a badass track, in the movie it's a fart. the first part of flight with the guitar, it's almost you can't hear a thing.
the classic zimmer choir sound (the end of Goodbye my son / the end of Terraforming) is murdered. simply it's not there.
when you see Morricone's L'arena in the Kill Bill OST release, before you see the movie, you know that it's gonna be fucking loud it's gonna be IN the movie and it's going to make 500 people breathe together. this is why the whole planet loves Tarantino. the reason why I'm soo angry is because I THINK Hans is an absolute world class composer. He is one of my favorite, he is the absolute best in remote control, he is still burning inside, still crazy, no lost spark.
so if you're in love with this score and you think it's great and it's full of Mr noise maker Hans Zimmer, then I don't recommend watching the movie.
so everybody crank up the Hi-Fi and blow up the world with this amazing score, from SuperHans!

Mike2013-06-22 22:12:38
As do others, I agree. The film score wasn't as good in the film as it is by itself.

Ds2013-06-23 10:49:20
The more blatant underusing is the drum orchestra. When listening to the album i thought "what a huge drum sound, that's really bad-ass!". In the movie? I could barely hear there were drums. The exact same result would've been achieved with only one drummer.

The beginning of Oil Rig was barely audible. The mid-part of Tornado too. It must've been a frustration for Hans. He did all these experiments "for pleasure" but someone thought there was no room for them in the movie...

Honestly i thought the music in the movie was very good, but not as good as on the album. There's just so much noise in the action scenes that some of the best bits are just pushed in the background, like the mid-part of "Terraforming", which is a shame!

But i was very happy to hear "If You Love These People" in full length in the climax.

Mike2013-06-21 02:52:36
I agree. This was one of the few times where I preferred the ALBUM over the film score itself. And as I said previously, I thought the main Superman theme was underused. This was especially disappointing since the best form of it ("What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World?") was relegated to the end credits. That means most people wouldn't even have gotten to hear it, because most people leave pretty much as soon as the credits begin. So unless you are familiar with the score when you see the movie (like I was), you might leave thinking that Superman had no discernible theme at all.

Ds2013-06-21 10:05:26
Well, Clark Kent has the piano theme, which was very discernible. I'm sure everyone noticed it, and how beautiful it was.

Kal El has the theme heard in Goodbye My Son and Flight Part 2, epic and powerful (among others).

The real "Superman" isn't born until the very end of the movie, so it has sense the bombastic "main theme" comes only then. In my opinion, of course, and i think it's Hans' opinion too :-)

Edmund Meinerts2013-06-21 10:54:28
So the theme that's a total rip off of "Science and Religion" is Kal-El's theme. Good to know! ;)

Mike2013-06-21 20:24:48
The Superman theme is also used when Kal-El is born, when Clark lifts the bus out of the water, and when he steps out in the Superman suit. But still...I thought it would have merited a bit more use.

0-cool2013-06-21 21:03:35
I prefer the Kal El theme over the Superman one. I hope Zimmer doesn't ditch it for the sequel.
I could actually see him combine the 2 themes for ultimate epicness

Mike2013-06-21 21:45:54
Whoa...0-cool...I think you might be on to something. That'd be awesome! But something tells me the themes will remain separate. Kind of like the way Batman has the two notes and the "Dark Knight" theme, yet they never mesh.

Ds2013-06-22 15:13:27
Mike: the Superman theme is of course heard throughout the movie, but its 'bombastic' form only appears in the credits.

I'm sure it'll be used A LOT more in the sequel!

Mike2013-06-22 22:11:10
I just realized I was right: I said a while back that we should expect Hans to give Superman more than one theme, just like he gave Batman more than one theme, and he did. There's the Superman theme ("Look to the Stars", "Flight", "What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving the World?"), the Kal-El theme ("Goodbye My Son", "Flight") and the Clark Kent piano theme--though it seems to me like the piano theme and the Superman theme may be the same tune. I can't really tell.

What in the world is the point of Flight Part 2 if it's just the second half of a track already on the album?

i had a good time in MoS china premiere. Music in RealD system hall was so hard to be heard clearly. but next day in IMAX hall, everything is crytal clear. especially "If You Love These People" in the final battle scences with the massive sound effects. oh! a eater egg for fans for Zack and Hans at the very end of the film.

Why the HELL does anyone care what "Hybrid" thinks of the score?

Martin2013-06-20 19:12:05
Agree !
JNH, Horner or Goldsmith OK ; but this guy ? I really don't care

tomPoland2013-06-21 11:50:59
We all know that he will rate it at least 4,5/5.

Score itself is like 3/5 max.

So far, only Star Trek didn't dissapoint me - Giacchino knows how to write powerfull and intelligent orchestral music.

PS. Brian Tyler is taking over Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Little story about why Geoff Zanelli isn't credited at all.

Simple, he started at a very early stage of the scoring, arranging some HZ ideas in the first couple of weeks of scoring. But then he left to focuse on Lone Ranger. So he didn't work on any final "score cue" (so didn't take credit at all), his worked is more like "melted" in the original ideas... :)

Aytekin2013-06-20 21:41:54
Ok and what about Satnam Ramgotra !! must be credited as musician, huh ?

You might hear about it if/when the complete score gets out...

Hybrid Soldier2013-06-19 20:43:45
I think it's HZ with arrangements by Junkie.

Hybrid, did Zimmer work with JunkieXL on "General Zod" and "Arcade", or was JunkieXL alone, simply imitating Zimmer's style? iTunes credits both of them, but we know never to trust official credits. lol. The end of "General Zod" sounds distinctly Zimmer-like, but, to quote Jim Gordon, "I've been wrong before".

I bought the two-disc, limited edition version of the soundtrack and it seems the volume leveling is quite low. I have to turn up the volume quite high to hear the full score. Has anyone experienced this or could this be a coding issue on my copy? I have not yet listened to it with headphones, only in my car at this time. Thanks.

Mike2013-06-19 00:22:50
I got the deluxe version via iTunes and didn't really notice it. The only time I experienced that was in "This is Clark Kent". The main part was a little too quiet, then the end was mega-loud.

Hi ! I have a litte question.
Is the 2 discs edition is the same in Europe and USA or the package is a little bit different ? Thanks for answering ;-)

No idea. Haven't seen the film yet. If there hasn't been an answer by the time I see it, I'll let you know.
