Probably the only reason Goldsmith isn't in my top 3 is I haven't heard enough of his music. :pWallfisch is a good composer indeed, but BR2049 (and Dunkirk) were absolutely the wrong place for him. He's not a synth guy. He was originally a protege of Dario Marianelli, for heaven's sake - he's got a far more classical/orchestral sensibility. A score like Cure for Wellness is a much better fit for him. I'm not sure why Hans thought it was best to bring him of all people in on BR2049 when the more electronically-inclined Mazzaro/Kawczynski duo would have made more sense for a Blade Runner score (I say this based mostly on Chappie).Ian - no one is trying to compare Balfe to Zimmer !Firstly there is a 20 year age gap!!!Zimmer will always be the best in my eyes but doesn’t harm saying someone else can be good <br><br>Still confused why this conversation is still troubling some.I remember saying last year that I thought Lego Batman was one of the best animation scores that year and it caused some to have heart attacks.there are a hand full of people that don’t think he is either good or should be working .... we get !!!! <br><br><br><br>Edmund - given the rationality you've displayed in your comments, I'm disappointed Goldsmith isn't in your top three. ;)<br><br>In all seriousness, I'd put money on Powell fucking nailing the integration of Williams's theme. While Giacchino did a solid job on Jurassic World and Rogue One (I tend to think my assessment of the latter is a bit more positive than most), frankly I just think Powell is a far better composer - a genuine A-level guy, whereas Giacchino is moreso very competent without that spark of pure talent seen in Williams, Goldsmith, Elfman, Zimmer etcI think it's worth noting that Zimmer's popularity at this point is largely under his direct control - meaning that if he were to decide to stop touring, go back to writing full-time, and return to his 'epic' thematic style, I think we'd see a surge in his popularity of the sort we saw from Batman Begins through til Interstellar. However, I just don't think he's interested, which is totally his right.<br><br>I certainly agree that the RCP proteges at this point are, frankly, shit compared to how they used to be. I mean, even a guy like Steve Mazzaro (who I genuinely like and who wrote some of the coolest cues in Chappie, and basically co-wrote BvS - a score I actually like) just utterly pales in comparison to the Powell era.<br><br>Actually, I have to take that back a bit; Wallfisch is a very, very talented guy, honestly so much better than someone like Junkie that I weirdly tend to forget he's under the RCP roof now.
@HunterTech<br><br>"I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world."<br><br>Exactly. Hans, for all the criticism he gets (much of it for good reason), has written some of the best film music of all time (seriously, having listened to huge amounts of Williams and Goldsmith, I still find Science & Religion my favorite cue ever). On the other hand, Lorne has written innumerable adequate-to-good scores, but none that I can recall are iconic. I'd say the closest he's come is in the form of his contributions to some of Zimmer's work (personally, I think his Kick It theme is the most interesting of those in Inception), but even then he hasn't done anything as memorable as Djawadi's theme from Batman Begins.Michael - reread the second half of my previous comment. And no, I don't think Genius or Churchill are no good; I wasn't impressed by the second, to be honest, but Genius is really cool - like an updated version of Frost/Nixon, one of my very favorite Zimmer/RCP scores.<br><br>Edmund - much appreciated.<br><br>Overall, I too am baffled by many of these comments; clearly there is a middle ground between "Lorne is shit." and "Lorne is absolutely amazing.", but this seems to be missed.<br><br>And by the way, I'm actually super happy for Lorne's success - I think he deserves it given the quality and quantity of his work, and he seems like a super nice guy to boot (how many composers regularly respond to people on Facebook?). However, this doesn't mean I can't simultaneously point out the fact that much of his work is very, very similar to work he's done previously. Indeed, I think this is more of an issue for Lorne than Hans, perhaps because he takes on sooooooo many projects.I agree. His Justice League theme is just a deconstruct of his Batman theme. Clever, yeah sure - he's done similar things with the Men In Black sequels and I'm sure there's others I can't think of right now - but I personally dont consider Elfman's involvement in this new DCEU to be very welcome. Zimmer paints a different canvas than Elfman, and I love both their works.It was a missed opportunity.<br>Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>
Seven with ZimmerYeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.
Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.It’s definitely one of Bay’s best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Can’t cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.

@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

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.
