I'd love to see Hans do another historical epic, for the record. I'm sure he'd say he's moved on from that sound, but personally, I miss it. That being said, Harry Gregson-Williams did good work here. Even if he then copied and pasted whole sections for Narnia. lol.Music editors loved their Gladiator temp too muchWhat was the reason of their swap? Why did Hans Zimmer quit Kigdom of HeavenHybrid wrote somewhere here that something happened between Streitenfeld and Ridley during Prometheus,and that was why HG-W was brought on for some rescoringI was wondering about this too. Like all of a sudden, after a couple of Ridley Scott collaborations, he disappeared.
Streitenfeld's score for "All I See Is You" isn't added to this site. Does it mean, that Marc left the company?Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5
Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing — but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>Oh wow! That’s all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Can’t insult me! I am genuinely curious. What’s this about The Last Samurai???
I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.

@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.

Dear Hybrid,
you know why it is not varese which release the soundtrack and will be there a cd?


Evenstar2013-06-04 21:47:38
also waiting for the CD...

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

Macejko reply Replies: 4 || 2013-06-04 12:37:16
"Mhysa" is just... beyond words. Incredible.


Ds2013-06-05 00:04:22

Peter2013-06-05 18:06:00
Wow can't wait to see what scene this cue is used for and WHAT HAPPENS AT 3:42?????


Dfault2013-06-06 17:11:36
A Lannister always pays his Debts. I find this song even better! Played in the start of the Red wedding scene, Amazing Lannister theme!

Incredible! The Djawadi naysayers are proven wrong! High hopes for "Pacific Rim"

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.

Viva Iranian Composer...

Iranian? Born and raised in Duisburg, Germany to an Iranian father and German mother.


Henry2013-06-01 12:15:33
Yeah, they were a bit proud of Ramin as belongs to his native home, like in the same way they were proud of the vocalist Azam Ali.. No problem

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.
