I feel like this is simultaneously the most enjoyable and least interesting Zimmer score of the last several years. It's nice to listen to, but it's basically the 1994 score rerecorded and tweaked in just a few places. Those tweaks do produce some highlights especially in the stampede and final battle sequences, but it's hard to think of this as a major effort, really. Yeah, it's good, but we've known that The Lion King is good for 25 years.I seriously don't understand why they didn't do two separate releases like most musicals do (La La Land comes to mind - perfect release). <br><br>A soundtrack album and a score album. No missing tracks, no fuss. And optional 2-CD set containing both.<br><br>Instead, they went with a soundtrack album with some of the score and another song album for whatever reason that is lol.The second half of the new "Elephant Graveyard" is basically note for note "I Was Just Trying to Be Brave" from the 1994 version as well, just with a few changes in orchestrationThis is only HGW's score, a good chunk of it was rejected.Wonder if it will take 20 years for an official complete score XD Not to mention any unofficial leaks (it took a long time to even get that for the original film). TBH, I'd prefer a proper release of any score any day of the week.<br><br>To answer the question above me: Mostly it's new material using the same themes from 1994, though if my interpretation the OST is correct, the hyenas and Timon and Pumbaa get new themes. The only true 'copies' of music from 1994 are Circle of Life and Remember, but even then, they are at least partially-new recordings.
Do we know who wrote what?Is it all material from 1994 or is it new 2019 score?I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).
Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"
Hahahahaha well I’m glad he got the credit then :DI absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!

In the movie, we can also hear the song "Jisas yu holem hand blong mi", why didn't they put it on the CD? Also, does anyone know where we can get the lyrics of this song, as well as of "God yu tekkem laef blong mi"?<br>For those who don't have the CD but would like to listen these, you can find them at ###

Did anyone else notice that part of "Beam" was briefly used in Public Enemies towards the beginning of the movie?

Le but a alors été atteint : l'emphase n'est que l'empreinte de l'émotion. Ce que j'entends par perfection, c'est le sentiment d'être à l'écoute d'une oeuvre unique, limpide et claire comme de l'eau cristal, des notes qui donnent du sens à l'image. C'est une musique à ne jamais déprécier, une musique qui je l'espère sera par tous appréciée. Ce film rassemble, sa musique unie.

I found some informations concerning the tracks:

- Track 1 & 4 contain adaptation of the traditional song "Christian Race";
- Track 5 "Beam" is composed by John Powell with Francesco Lupica;
- Track 11 is composed and performed by Francesco Lupica.

Can anyone confirme that?

A ce jour, c'est la plus belle musique que j'ai jamais écouté de toute ma vie.
Je n'ai pas de mots pour la décrire si ce n'est que je crois désormais en une perfection dans le domaine de l'art et précisément en matière de musique.

Is the instrumental song at the beginning of the film just after Whit talks to the Melanesian woman with the baby on the soundtrack?

I wish they'd release the whole 4 hours of music that was meant for the original cut of the movie.

The duo T. Mallick/H. Zimmer was one of the best moment of my life, too short ! But those who haven't seen the film can't understand..... light, photographies, sound, Salomon's islands.
Garcon, la même chose s'il vous plait !

some years ago, I wasn't really into scores that much. but one day I was really bored, I sat down and began to listen to a cd my father bought and told me to listen to it. at first I'd just quickly skip though the tracks, not really caring. I finally left it on a track and just began to listen. within 9 mins, the way I looked at music change for the rest of my life. I had never heard anything more beutiful then that track. and yes I am talking about track 3 "--journey to the line"--. today I have spent well over thousands and thousands of dollars to buy more scores. and always waiting for mr. zimmers next cd. and out of my 3 hundred plus cds. my favorite one still and always will be the thin red line.

je dois dire que, bien que n'écoutant que du hard-rock et du metal, j'ai été déboussolé, totalement submergé par la musique des chants polynésiens: de si belles voix...... Une chanson pleine de tendresse du début a la fin.

je ne sais comment m'exprimer, mais je dois dire une chose: je n'avais jamais entendu quelque chose d'aussi beau.

alors, Mr Zimmer, Chapeau bas. toutes mes felicitations.

Awesome!!!!! :-D

The music makes you peacefull and calm. Personally, it makes me soft because it remainds me of the great movie and great scenes where Pvt. Witt enjoys peacfull times with good, harmonic, almost utopic people (from the westerner's point of view). The people that we more vainly than simply call just: "--the natives"--. Well, that natives know far more about life and good than many westerners do. And this music brings you a wisper of their wisdom.
