Right. The difference between Zimmer and many other composers (for me at least) is that you can almost immediately tell if you like a Zimmer score off the bat. DMTNT is something that needs a few listens to grow on you, and so far I'm liking what I hear.<br><br>When I heard Fantastic Beasts for the first time I was initially disappointed but after about 3 listens and hearing it in context it became my favorite score of the year. Everyone is different of course, but I feel like this score will grow on people with time.Well... as you say, Zanelli's tunes tend to be less streamlined. You can hear it in his themes for Into the West, The Pacific, Outlander (the movie) and even the Spaniards themes in OST. <br><br>Not to say Zimmer's aren't great in their own merit, but are not always the same exact approach.For everyone complaining about the mix of this album don't forget, nothing beats Curse of the Black Pearl in terms of an awful recording mix. When you have a 'synthy' sounding orchestra and bass gain distortions that actually make it to album this really isn't anything in comparison.<br><br>And I think the key difference between Zimmer and Zanelli (at least on this franchises' terms) is that most of the themes Zimmer wrote for the franchise (Davy Jones, Beckett, Kraken, pretty much all of the original tunes from the 1st one, etc.) were actually incredibly simplistic. Geoff's tunes are less streamlined. They aren't bad by any means, but it's telling when the strongest parts are the reprises of things like Hoist the Colours and Marry Me."How did they manage to make a 100 piece orchestra sound like a demo for an off the shelf sample library?"<br><br>MV/RC has existed for over two decades now and you're actually still surprised at this? XDfinal veredict?
Oh dear . Where is the theme ?Comes across very likeable and enthusiastic.Now I'm even more excited!I'm on track 9 at the moment. Nothing especially memorable so far, but I do love the return of the Love Theme and Hoist the Colors.<br><br>Salazar's theme isn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it does seem to get repetative quickly. Hopefully the score isn't as blatantly bad on-screen as OST was. That film and score was a mess.Cool insight on POTC 5 !
Now that the album is out there I can easily say that I love this score. Definitely my 2nd favorite behind MoS. <br><br>Musically, much of it has that "Last Samurai/Transformers" power anthem style (with one of the themes sounding like King Arthur) but with RGW's string writing style as opposed to the bass heavy approach of those scores. The WW cello theme isn't used a whole lot, but when it gets some screen time it feels earned, and steals the show. The villain material is the weakest part, but instrumentally is pretty cool with the incorporation of the cimbalom (it reminds me slightly of Sherlock at points)<br><br>Overall, easily one of the best scores so far this year.Hans has not done this one because he was working on dunkirk at the time as far as I know. I saw the movie last night and for sure things like "What shall we die for", "One day", "Jack Sparrow", the legendary "He's a pirate" or even the bit of the musical clock/bell theme from davy jones and Calypso at the VERY end of the film are things that Hans wrote of course. In the movie itself you hear this stuff very often especially in the first hour of the movie which is packed with old themes. But Geoff Zanelli still wrote the other 60%/65% of the music so I can imagine that Hans said that they can give it to Zanelli because even if most of the themes are from Hans, he was most likely not heavily involved at the writing and scoring process. He was most likely there at the beginning of the process like Zanelli said in an interview and made sure that this story needed things like one day or the medallion calls. And he is not credited because of the fact that he was doing dunkirk and for sure his live tour and so he was like mentioned before only there at the beginning of the process and wrote/refined the new versions of one day or he's a pirate if he did anything. But i thought as well that they could have mentioned him in the credits like they mentioned Zanelly or even Steve Jablonsky in the credits of the first one or John Williams at Rogue One.I missed that, sorry! I agree with your other comment.<br><br>Jackman's contribution to the 2nd half of love suite, his rollicking orchestral mayhem in "I don't know if now is the best time" provide plenty of evidence of him imposing his style effectively on the material. <br>"Going back to ground 0" doesn't mean "make a poor movie".<br>I would like more Pirates movies, but not if they make them as bad as the 4th and 5th ones. They could have written an original story (I'm sure there are good writers out there who could have found something fresh) and started a new adventure just like the 2nd and 3rd movies did. It's not impossible.<br>But rather they just tried to remake the 1st movie. If they did it for the 5th one, why do you think they wouldn't do it for the 6th one? Judging by the post-credit scene, they are clearly not afraid of ripping off the previous movies even more... :-DHi Hans!<br><br>Your scores helped me pass through difficult times, in life.<br>Never heard music that touches me so deep inside.<br>Thanks - to you and your Team - and go on like this.<br>When do you come to Germany with your Team (live in concert)?<br><br>If you like to answer: atlantis42195@gmail.com<br>------------------------------------------<br>Hallo Hans!<br><br>Ein dickes Lob an Sie und Ihr Team.<br>Ihre Musik half mir, durch schwere Zeiten im Leben zu kommen.<br>Nie zuvor kannte ich Musik, welche mich derart berührt.<br>Wann kommen Sie wieder nach Deutschland, mit Ihrem Team?<br><br>Weiter so und beste Grüße, aus Düsseldorf!<br>Falls Sie antworten möchten:atlantis42195@gmail.com<br><br>Jill W.<br>
Yeah... I know what you mean...<br><br>First of all, I want this movie to be a fun ride. I cannot ask of it what I would ask of a Nolan production, for once. But I know I cannot ask of this movie what I would ask of a 2nd or a 3rd part. I say this because since DMTNT begins production they (producers) hinted it was the BEGINNING of a new adventure, So they had to go back to "ground 0". And is not too difficult to guess that they'd try the Star Wars formula; POTC 5 is basically Force Awakens in its intentions at the least.<br><br>So what really put me off is the fact that all this hate will only cause to not greenlit more adventures :( , because, well.. apparently audience doesn't want this dessert anymore.If that cheesy ending was "so so cool", it's just because it's a powerful reminder of how beautiful the 3rd movie was. And even more so in comparison to this dreadful 5th outing.Yeah I made a shitty suite ! :( :( :( lolLots of people complaining about the film and the score, makes me a little bit irritated. Of course this was never gonna reach the level of the first films. It never will be, it's been 10 years. I am a hugh fan of these films and after watching the new film I felt so good. That cheesy ending was actually so so cool. The movie wasn't perfect put they did some good things in it. I haven't heard this album yet but I listened to the samples and everything I wanted on this album, I did hear those parts in the samples. Afterwards I was humming that new adventure theme all day, even how unoriginal it is. It's cool and Carina's theme is a great new addition. This score is much than On Stranger Tides maybe think about that. Let this score grow on you. Most people now base their opinion on just this suite. Honestly ? It doens't reflect the score that well.I have yet to listen to the score, and I will after see the movie because I want to experience it on the movie itself first.<br><br>But if you read the very insightful interview with Zanelli for filmmusicamg, he talks about the "differences" between composers at RCP, and when Zimmer liked something of Zenelli its because, in Zimmer's words "it sounds so Geoff" (I think he was racalling it about Tia Dalma's theme and the tribal island music from DMC). So I think is kind of unfair to expect Geoff's music to sound very Zimmer's, realistically speaking. <br><br>I've been listening Zanelli's scores a few years now, and I think I Identify his style and his type os themes, which are not like Zimmer`s at all (talking about notes specifically)... so based on his scores I expect this to be a very Geoff Zanelli score leaning to POTC style and just a little of Zimmer.<br><br>You can see the differences in the OST album, just listen on what Zimmer composed and the listen the Spaniard's theme, which is by Zanelli.

John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.


Macejko2017-01-17 20:25:32
FUCK! :(


Crisp Rat2017-01-17 22:34:04
I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.


Scorefan2017-01-18 01:48:04
John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.


...2017-01-18 22:04:32
Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!

I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.


Edmund Meinerts2017-01-19 17:44:35
Paesano's okay but I was actually hoping for Djawadi to return (not so often I say that, but this is his best film score IMO, and only topped by GoT S6 overall).


odne.2017-01-19 22:16:34
Ramin is overrated!


Edmund Meinerts2017-01-19 23:42:59
I agree. I don't think he's anything special. His greatest strengths lie in cool themes and especially rhythmic hooks or ostinatos, but I don't think he's yet written a consistently good score (often some wonderful individual pieces contained within an otherwise bland whole, which describes pretty much the entirety of the Game of Thrones music among other things). I hear positive things about The Great Wall, though.

Macejko will, of course, disagree.


...2017-01-20 13:25:25
I think Djawadi is a brilliant composer. However I think he gets the wrong gigs (movies). In his TV scores he is way more inventive!

Hybrid, I guess this has been asked before, but do you know the reason why Ramin was replaced on Edge of Tomorrow. Beck's score is pretty bad and uninteresting, so it got me thinking about what Djawadi might have done with it...


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-14 23:19:56
Dunno...

But seeing how it turned to be, he can be happy he didn't score it in the end...


Edmund Meinerts2014-06-14 23:29:42
Doug Liman doesn't seem to have that great taste in music. Even when he was working with Powell, the scores they made together aren't anywhere near his best (Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jumper and Fair Game). And I heard that Edge of Tomorrow was temped with Battleship. Bleurgh.


Ds2014-06-15 00:06:58
Uh? He could just have scored his best movie yet... Edge Of Tomorrow was a blast, the only thing it was missing was a good score...

I don't trust in Ramin Djawadi (just to clarify), don't like his excessively electronic and impersonal style, must accept than with this movie, I though than maybe Djawadi do a score than likes me, cannot be more wrong, is simply boring and rutinary, only the main theme saves of the burn, but feels like something may be changed to other movie (like Iron Man). Didn't like me, because is a impersonal and excessively rutinary score

Russel2013-12-29 00:39:48
It seems that this Darren Rutter guy, who seems to be a newer composer...It seems that he has been listed as Additional music for that film. So maybe he is helping Djawadi, who knows. I'd rather hear Djawadi's work for this film, as well. This Darren Rutter person is a mystery to most of us.


Macejko2013-12-29 09:57:46
Unfortunately, I learned on Filmmusicreporter.com that there is indeed a new composer onboard. It's not Rutter, but someone else. So it seems that Ramin is not composing this film and I would like to know why.


Edmund Meinerts2013-12-29 12:12:54
Well, he was only ever listed on imdb...which is never the most reliable of sources. Don't take it too personally. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2013-12-29 12:44:01
Well I'm pretty sure I saw it on his official resume at GSA... Don't really remember though... It's not there anymore... lol


Macejko2013-12-29 15:15:35
That's the thing, Edmund - he was officially announced on filmmusicreporter.com. It was not just IMDb thing. And I don't take it personally, I am well aware that life has its ups and downs ;)

tomPoland2014-01-10 09:40:44
@joshua
Give him a credit, he never scored hardcore s-f movie; there's a chance we will get some great and memorable score. I think it's good when composers go outside their box.

He's done better. (IMO Clash of the Titans & Iron man were his best.

It's weird, I generally enjoyed Iron Man also, even if the scoring process was a mess. Something about it just appealed to me, despite the negative reaction it's commonly given.


thejok3rrules2014-01-10 06:42:34
I actually loved Iron Man! I tink it gave a nice rythm for Tony Stark, better than the following score by Debney!

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 2 || 2014-01-08 23:24:09
Wasn't sure where to post this, but since people were talking about it here...It seems that the latest composer slated to score Edge of Tomorrow is Christophe Beck (it's on Film Music Reporter). Intriguing choice. IMO he's a talented composer who unfortunately get stuck in musically-unfruitful comedies a lot, but Percy Jackson and Frozen were both quite good, so I'm looking forward to hearing what he does here.

Still wish it was Powell, though...

cinematography was incredible in this movie. you can read all the actions sequences pretty nicely. you understand what's happening in the screen. they could have go the transformers/MoS way with a shaky cam all the way and with atrocious zoom but they didn't and i adore it.

A first! Filmtracks actually gives a positive review for this one. A whopping 4 stars!

4 stars for Pacific Rim ; 1 star for MoS :)


MrZimmerFan2013-07-08 12:55:39
Is simple, if you no enjoy Pacicif Rim, what enjoy for you?, is best revival of MV/RC of 90!, men


tomPoland2013-07-08 13:19:05
Well, Pacific Rimm supposed to be a mindless but fun action score - and it is.
MoS supposed to be something magnificent and timeless - it a simple blockbuster score that will be forgotten after a few moths.


0-cool2013-07-08 14:56:14
who decides what's fun, mindless or timeless?
Both Pacific Rim and MoS are Summer Blockbusters, nothing more


Edmund Meinerts2013-07-08 17:42:38
The difference between Pacific Rim and Man of Steel is that the former doesn't take itself at all seriously whereas the latter does, crushingly so. Even though neither of them are complex works in the slightest. In general I find that Zimmer and MV/RC scores work best when they're just having a blast and being a fun, thematic, cool, unpretentious experience. When Zimmer starts trying to be all "experimental" giving characters one- or two-note themes...trying too hard to make it magnificent and timeless when really he's making it dull and forgettable...it's not what Zimmer is best at, IMO. Scores like MoS and the Batman trilogy don't have anywhere near the charm of PotC (1-3), Sherlock Holmes, even The Lone Ranger, despite all the effort I know Zimmer put into making them.

Then again...there's definitely not three stars' quality difference between the two scores (it's MoS 2.5, PR 3.5 for me). And for the best revival of the MV/RC of the 90s this year, MrZimmerFan, I kindly refer you to Olympus Has Fallen. ;)


Anon2013-07-08 17:50:31
Olympus has Fallen is amazing, but Trevor Morris has not been a part of RCP for a very long time now, don't know if you can really count it as such


MrZimmerFan2013-07-08 18:18:30
@Edmund

Also like Olympus Has Fallen ;)

4/5 stars for me


Meta2013-07-15 03:25:26
WOW...Filmtracks likes an RCP score?

They must have either considered the angry comments from viewers, or they told that guy who HATES RCP and Zimmer to stay away....


Edmund Meinerts2013-07-15 09:18:55
"that guy?" All the Filmtracks reviews are by the SAME guy...and isn't it possible that he just maybe likes this score more than a lot of other RC efforts?

And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he give Crimson Tide five stars? Why is everyone so surprised?

The unexpected has become a reality and now I must take back almost everything I said earlier. Just saw the movie, and the music works FANTASTIC within it! Now I understand all the musical decisions that has been made. I percieve the soundtrack very differently (and significantly better) now.

Macejko reply Replies: 3 || 2013-06-27 12:06:21
Hate to be the first one to say it, but this is a huge, huge disappointment :( There are few solid moments, but in general it lacks memorable themes, powerfull musical climaxes and most of all - it lacks ideas.
I am known here for loving Djawadi's work very much, and I was highly anticipating this score ever since it was announced in February 2012. But this is truly a let down for me. It'll probably work well in the movie itself, but after 3 listenings I can find no reason why listen to it separately. There might be a slight chance that seeing the movie will afterwards improve the listening experience dramatically (it happened to me with Inception and Man of Steel, for example), but I don't believe it'll happen this time.


MrZimmerFan2013-06-27 12:27:11
Your love for Djawadi is know, but this time you wrong... ;)


Evenstar2013-06-27 15:09:08
I also don't like it.


Ds2013-06-27 18:07:00
This is the kind of non-stop action movie where the score isn't given any moment to breathe. I think this score's going to sound better within the movie. On CD it's a little bit boring, judging by the couple of tracks i've heard.

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2013-06-26 00:55:11
Did Djawadi score this without any 'additional composers'?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 13 || 2013-06-17 23:11:24
Absolutely love the samples... Kinda Iron Man meets Red Dawn... :D


Ds2013-06-17 23:14:28
It's funny you've already listened to Pacific Rim's samples, and still haven't heard anything from Man Of Steel, which comes one month earlier :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-06-17 23:15:23
Tomorrow night MOS ! I'll finally be free ! ;)


MrZimmerFan2013-06-17 23:32:04
IS AWESOME


Ds2013-06-17 23:38:12
Where are these samples? Can't find anything via google...


Hybrid Soldier2013-06-17 23:39:08
See the little Amazon widget on the left of this page ?

Just click on it !


Ds2013-06-17 23:48:36
Thanks Hybrid. I had to disable adblock plus on google chrome to see it :)


Macejko2013-06-18 10:28:21
Not quite sure I share your enthusiasm, Hybrid... It sounds kinda I feared it'll sound. I hoped for a big orchestra, but this is more "Person of interst" kind of score, apparently. Still impatiently waiting for the whole thing, though. Samples are often misguiding.


tomPoland2013-06-18 11:57:18
Let us hope, that this won't be as bad as Battleship...


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-18 12:30:41
Few things are, Tom, few things are. ;)


Ds2013-06-18 12:51:02
Honestly it's not impossible that the movie AND the score are both worse than Battleship... The good point is that expectations are pretty low, we may end up very surprised :-)

Tunerline2013-06-25 20:16:23
Mako (feat. Priscilla Ahn)WOW!!

I use Spotify for this score ; )

Film Music Reporter has the soundtrack details:

1. Pacific Rim (feat. Tom Morello)
2. Gipsy Danger
3. Canceling the Apocalypse
4. Just A Memory
5. 2500 Tons Of Awesome
6. The Shatterdome
7. Mako (feat. Priscilla Ahn)
8. Call Me Newt
9. Jaeger Tech (feat. Tom Morello)
10. To Fight Monsters, We Created Monsters
11. Better Than New
12. We Are The Resistance
13. Double Event
14. Striker Eureka
15. Physical Compatibility
16. Category 5
17. Pentecost
18. Go Big Or Go Extinct (feat. Tom Morello)
19. Hannibal Chau
20. For My Family
21. No Pulse (feat. Tom Morello)
22. Kaiju Groupie
23. Deep Beneath The Pacific
24. The Breach
25. We Need A New Weapon

Morello's involvement definitely suggests that the producers are going for a rock influence on much of the score, but that can be a good thing in the proper context. I'm quite interested in hearing how this one sounds...


Macejko2013-06-14 07:33:33
The rock sound got me a little worried there, but since Djawadi said in a interview that the soundtrack will be a combination between rock and traditional (orchestral) sound, I'm still excited to hear it.

Macejko reply Replies: 4 || 2013-06-06 10:28:14
Can't wait for this. It'll be score of the year I tell you.


Ds2013-06-06 10:38:15
If the music in the trailers is an indication of how the actual movie sounds, i'm afraid it WON'T be the score of the year :-(


Macejko2013-06-06 10:49:33
Ds: Music in the trailers has nothing to do with the actual score, trust me. It's just some generic action trailer music. I'm sure Hybrid can confirm it.


Ds2013-06-06 11:45:14
I know the trailer music isn't from Djawadi, but it can be a sign of the kind of music Del Toro (or the producers) wanted in the movie... :/


cody2013-06-06 15:11:35
the music in the trailers were by Groove Addicts & Ninja Tracks, and i hope it, epic!!! but in some of the featurettes thats been released like The Drift for example i think the music in the background IS from the score,
