How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lolThese two tracks are just outstanding:<br><br>1)<br><br>2) can check these out they're brilliant:<br><br>1)<br><br>2), if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.
Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!
Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?
"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>I’m in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally don’t pay attention to the music unless it’s really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestri’s Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately it’s surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like that’s something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because he’s had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmer’s material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.

This score was a surprise, didn't expected nothing for it, I did hear it cause some friends recommend it to me, it's so much better what did I expected, have excellent gothic and romantic themes. Who told terrible movies like this can't have a good score

trent easton navarro2014-02-04 09:26:23
Yeah, it's a wonderful score! On of the best of 2013. And obviously you are not a fan of Jerry Goldsmith, otherwise you'd have known terrible films can have amazing scores ;)

After listening to it a couple of times, I must admit it is a great piece of work... A great theme, nice arrangements all over the score. I love it!

Wasn't there a release that was on iTunes earlier that was 22 tracks?

Does anyone else think Atli looks a bit like Jeremy Renner? :p

MacArthur2013-11-17 23:48:59
Not Seeing it.

Mike2013-11-18 01:56:29
I can kinda see it. I feel like Geoff Zanelli looks like Robert Downey Jr.

MacArthur2013-11-18 04:05:59
Now That I do see.

Correct track order?

Hybrid Soldier2013-10-18 21:42:22
Correct order :

01 - Mortal Instruments - The Opening
02 - Where's The Cup?
03 - Madame Dorothea
04 - J.C.
05 - She's Not A Mundane
06 - Pretty Far From Brooklyn
07 - The Mortal Cup
08 - City Of Bones
09 - Magnus Bane
10 - Vampires & Werewolves
11 - The Portal
12 - Midnight In The Garden
13 - Valentine
14 - Demon Doll
15 - The Clave's Curse
16 - You're A Morgenstern
17 - The Angel Rune
18 - Close The Dome
19 - Your Secret Is Safe
20 - Clary's Theme

I'm sure about this one, just "She's Not A Mundane" isn't featured in the movie, but if there's a place it should be, it's right here. Clary's Theme being of course a suite (the ending part is featured a couple of times in the movie).

Just saw the movie yesterday... Not horrible, I must say. But Alti's score felt repetitive, and apart from ''Clary's Theme'' on the album, it wasn't so amazing... Alti has done done better..

Best score Atli has ever done! Nice orchestra & choir.

Actually, I think it's pretty boring. I expected more from Atli.

Very Good Score! Clary's Theme is a very nice cue!
