So Hybrid, care to tell us why you randomly deleted comments talking about the leaked recording sessions?Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?
been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.
Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>You fools, the tracklist was but a scam. The tracks simply wanted to EAT you.Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.<br><br>I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.<br><br>I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.Not to disagree for its own sake, but I think Powell has been up there with the greatest film composers since the first HTTYD score. I just wish he'd take on more projects.Yeah, Jesus. This is a prime example of why I'm tempted to think John Powell is more talented than even Williams (yes, I went there).
There's so, so many great themes in the HTTYD scores. And he almost never lets a moment go by where he isn't stating or restating or developing one or more of them (although honestly that's true of a ton of Powell's scores and not an exclusive feature of HTTYD). You can never get bored listening to these, there's always something interesting around the next corner.I got confirmation HGW only wrote Haitian House Shootout (with the help of Mel Wesson). The same ideas were edited into the shorter cue Zoepound, so I'd say you can add this one to his credits.<br><br>Credits on IMDB mentions Paul Linford on the Main Titles.<br><br>Trevor Morris helped Jablonsky on the Ferrari Causeway Chase.<br>Jablonsky worked, for sure, on the Hallway and Helicopter Inserts.<br><br>100% sure Rabin worked on Tapia, Tapia Pissed Off, The Stuff, Wiretap Results, Ocean, Dead Bodies #2, Heart to Heart, Breaking Into Mortuary, Syd's Cover Is Blown, Tapia Has Syd (without Inserts), Prep for Tapia Sneak, Cuba Chase, Guantanamo (those tracks are on the Rabin only-bootleg).Hoping for the Rocketman score to get a release. Loved the score in the movie. Any updates on this ?Additionally, for anyone interested, I've managed to come up with a final list of themes from the series that I believe to be mostly accurate.<br><br>HTTYD 1: Hiccup & Toothless, The Friendship ostinato, Viking Theme, Viking "B" Theme, Dragons, Berk, The Dragon Tamer (Hiccup's unique qualities), Vikings & Dragons, Astrid<br><br>HTTYD 2: Loss, Exploration/Hiccup's Maturance, Drago, Hiccup & Valka, The Alpha, Stoick & Valka, The Chief<br><br>HTTYD 3: The Furies ostinato, Love, The Dragon Liberators, Moving On, The Hidden World, Toothless & The Light Fury, Grimmel, Dragon Trappers<br><br>A list more impressive than Star Wars, and with almost every new theme returning for the next film, while keeping most of the base themes. A masterful achievement by John Powell and his crew, as others have said!Just finished watching the movie, and while it's not much more than fine, it's sure as hell better than every other Star Wars movie that's come out since The Force Awakens (minus the ugly fucking visuals). <br><br>However the score is absolutely amazing. Powell's adaptation and development of the new Han Solo theme from Williams is flawless, the callbacks to other themes from the series are mostly appropriate (and good on him for not using the Force theme once!) and Powell's original material is fresh and exciting in a way that even Williams himself hasn't been able to pull off with the new films. <br><br>Powell might very well be up there with the greatest film composers if he continues to produce work like this from now on (which from HTTYD 3 seems very possible!)

@Hybrid

The track jamie's debt in the player is shorter than the ost version. is this an edit of the ost track or is it a rip from the show?

I just wanted to say how much I love Djawadi's work! I've not listened to much of his music in the past but after having seen 3 seasons of GoT I'm blown away. I can't speak for all of his music of course but his game of thrones music is amazing. He has really captured the world of GOT with his music. It fits so perfectly to the show! Oh and Mhysa just has everything!

Was sure "Mhysa" would close episode 10! Outstanding work from Ramin.

Great, now he starts ripping of Lorne Balfe his sound. Sigh, this guy keeps on sinking beneath the depths of the ocean floor...


Macejko2013-06-04 22:45:32
Balfe doesn't even HAVE a sound. He is less than nothing compared to Djawadi. In fact, most of RCP composers should learn from him in the matter of developing and re-orchestrating a theme.


Macejko2013-06-04 22:46:40
*learn from Djawadi


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-09 10:47:51
Your raging hard-on for anything Djawadi-related continues to amuse and bemuse me, Macejko. To my ears he isn't significantly better or worse than Balfe, and both of them are nowhere near the most interesting composers to come out of RCP...they can't hold a candle to John Powell, Mark Mancina or Steve Jablonsky (on his good days), let alone Hans himself.

That said, "Mhysa" IS an amazing cue. ;)


Anonymous2013-06-09 12:48:00
Jablonsky? It had been aaaaaaaages since he did something memorable....


Trent Easton Navarro2013-06-09 14:12:33
Pain and Gain was a great score, one of this year's finest


Ds2013-06-09 14:17:57
Agree with Trent Easton Navarro: "Pain & Gain" is a really good work from Jablonsky. A score doesn't need to be "epic" to be good ;-)


MrZimmerFan2013-06-09 14:35:28
I'm with you, Ds and Trent, Pain & Gain is one of the best works of Jablonsky, it works very well in the movie

"Mhysa" is just... beyond words. Incredible.

Wow can't wait to see what scene this cue is used for and WHAT HAPPENS AT 3:42?????

A Lannister always pays his Debts. I find this song even better! Played in the start of the Red wedding scene, Amazing Lannister theme!

I don't understand "The Bear And The Maiden Fair".
I think it's weird they put a rock song like this in the series and soundtrack. Other than that, the album is great. "Mhysa" is absolutely outstanding!!!

Macejko reply Replies: 0 || 2013-06-05 15:48:51
Ok, more complex thoughts.
I love it. I even like the themes I didn't like in the show itself, like "Dracarys", for example. I am constantly getting surprised how Ramin can work with the previously composed themes - rearranging them, changing them. Take for example "A Lannister Always Pays His Debts". It changed "The Rains of Castamere" (which was very sad and moody tune) to epic and heroic new motif for Jaime Lannister. Or "Mhysa", which is a new take on Daenerys' theme. We already heard that theme in "Finale" (season 1) and "Mother of Dragons". This time he used choir, and once again completely changed the way that theme feels (and it feels like something out of this world, as I already pointed out). And there's so much more, like the raw, chilling brutality in "The Lannisters Send Their Regards". I simply admire Ramin.
But of course, the score is not absolutely perfect. It lacks some music I wanted to hear, like the theme playing when Catelyn talks about Jon Snow, or the music playing during Jaime/Brienne and Beric/The Hound duels. Also, there is Kerry Ingram's song. I can't help it, but it feels like an unnecessary, pointless filler to me.
My final verdict is strong 8/10.

It's funny how the covers for RCP soundtrack have changed. Now they seem to prefer some "design" pictures with only logos (TDKR, MoS, PotC4, The Lone Ranger). A few years ago they were always using adapted movie posters.

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2013-05-31 00:10:05
Normally I would be excited as hell, but as I already said - judging by the show itself, there is very little of new material.


Macejko2013-05-31 00:14:43
Also, it's curious that this one is being released by WaterTower, when the previous two were done by Varése Sarabande.
