Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell...
...and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.
love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.
M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.

Have any of you seen the "special edition" version of this score? Is it legit or no, theres supposedly a 40 minute suite with it but theres no page for it on this site so I wasn't sure if it was legit. Thanks!


Mr Tweedy2018-04-10 15:56:22
Sounds like a fan made version.

I don't get why people bother adding a lengthy medley that contain the same content as heard in the score, and claim it's a "special edition".

Hybrid..
I heard that hans stopped an expanded last samurai release from lala-land records...
Is that true??? And if its true.. do you know why???


marcorea12018-01-04 16:00:08
I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. When he was about to sign my LLL broken arrow he flipped (not at me) about the release, saying he hates it when labels do that as he prefers his music the way they were released first time. He still signed it thankfully. Where I can agree with him on most of his OST, there are a small handful of albums that are missing so much. However I wouldn’t even buy a last samurai LLL release as the OST is a great listen as it is. Same with angels and demons. But that’s just me, many people prefer expanded albums and The last samurai would have been nice for those people.


Olive2018-01-04 16:33:26
I no agree with him. No is fair for the fan no have the access to this stuff because of the direct action of the composer.


badbu2018-01-04 16:44:13
Hans also don't like this score


Hybrid Soldier2018-01-04 16:44:43
Yes I can confirm a release was cancelled about 4 years ago. I cannot say why exactly though.

I've been discussing it with Hans & persons of interest to see what can be done to get it released, and I can tell you Hans is not blindly against the idea...

We'll see how all this goes...


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-04 16:59:34
The fact that Hans has come to dislike this lovely, emotional score while proudly putting his name to stuff like Dunkirk and Inferno is a pretty clear sign of how far apart our paths have drifted over the past several years. :(


Hybrid Soldier2018-01-04 17:02:12
Wait, in what world Hans doesn't like The Last Samurai ?

That's absolutely not true... Wait for the suite he built himself for the concert "The World of Hans Zimmer" in a few months !


Mephariel2018-01-04 18:21:09
Hybrid, do you know if there are plans for a CD/Digital audio release of "The World of Hans Zimmer?" I am super excited about this concert.


Hybrid Soldier2018-01-04 18:25:10
It's pretty early to ask that !!


Mike (OTM)2018-01-04 20:53:47
This is one of my favorite Hans scores, period, so I'd welcome an expanded release. The OST was solid, though.

As for Hans not liking this score, yeah right. He's talked about it as one of the scores he's actually quite proud of.


Olive2018-01-04 22:49:39
Yes, especially when we read the 2003 interviews in which he says he even traveled to Japan to do research. Only the trip is reason to love this score.


Mephariel2018-01-04 23:59:00
Has Zimmer ever talked about King Arthur or Pearl Harbor? I never even hear him briefly mention of those scores.


Olive2018-01-05 00:13:08
I saw a video of him during the premiere of "Inferno" talking to a reporter about "Pearl Harbor". She said that was her favorite. Hans replied that he and she were the only ones who liked it.

Elsewhere I read that Berstein wrote a letter to him praising "Pearl Harbor."

What is this "Journey Theme" at the end of the track list ?


Evenstar2013-09-01 18:11:34
yeah also curious about this one


greg2013-09-01 18:57:58
The Journey theme is probably another take similar to Taken.


sam2013-09-01 21:07:00
it's a cue that hybrid always posts at an end of a complete score tracklist, just to feel better then others, that he might have something, what others don't have. he's doing that always, so i would even say, that track doesn't exist at all.


Hybrid Soldier2013-09-01 21:08:53
It is available to everyone, most people are just way to dumb to see the obvious.


lv-4262013-09-01 21:30:35
To be fair, people just may not know the score as well as you do. It's from the OST, I assume.


Algren2013-09-02 08:48:28
Wow hybrid, really? Now you also offend people here, chapeau to you!

And calling a track "Journey theme" and putting any track time doesn't make us know which track you mean. And as you're doing this EVERYTIME a complete or a sessions score has been leaked, is just shady from you, just to feel better on your own.

There are always these theme or suite cues from you, which are maybe bad edited and mixed by yourself.

And you should think twice before you're offending here someone!

Instead of being happy that everyone can enjoy this beautiful music by Zimmer, which is our all passion and hobby, you need to act again like a prude chick, which goes totally crazy because someone can enjoy this beautiness too now.


Anonymous2013-09-02 09:23:31
Well said, Algren. Adding a track and a time does not tell anyone anything. Hybrid's attitude leaves a lot to be desired. He will probably delete these comments, again to make himself feel better.


Tits McGee2013-09-02 10:30:17
Hybrid, before you delete these comments, I'm sure Hans wouldn't be very pleased if he knew you were the reason that half his scores get leaked in the first place. Then you insult someone on here just asking an innocent question. Take a good look in the mirror. You run a fan site (big whoop-dee-do). It's not like you're getting these scores because you're in the RCP studio with him actually MAKING THE MUSIC (that would require an ounce of creativity wouldn't it? Something your behavior on here says you lack). You're no better than anyone else. It's appalling to see you act so oblivious to your own behavior. So relax for once. Don't be so damn condescending.


greg2013-09-02 11:43:07
If I were hybrid I would all tell you to f**k off, i'd close the website and would enjoy the music without hearing you all bitching.


jan-lee2013-09-02 13:04:38
why are you bad calling a person that has done so much for this site and us, one of the main reason i come here is to read his comments and the answers he gets from zimmer and others regarding music, news etc.


Jimmy Idol2013-09-02 13:08:58
We´re not talking bad about hybrid. but just read, someone posts a simple question, and hybrid just offending everyone here as dumb. who the fuck should know what cue the ¨journey theme¨ is?


Mike2013-09-02 18:30:35
I think every person here being ridiculous. We don't know what the Journey theme is, Hybrid calls us dumb for not knowing, and we all go crazy. For goodness sakes, do knowing the Journey theme or unnecessary rudeness really matter? Go, find a way to figure out what the Journey theme is, and know that Hybrid will be Hybrid for better or worse. It's not the end of the world.

@Mr Tweedy: I think you mean "leave" not "live".


Jimmer2013-09-03 13:02:25
While I agree Hybrid seems to be doing with every Complete Score that gets released, in this instance, it's not that hard to figure out. Do you guys not remember when this movie was first released? Think about it, "Journey Theme." What's perhaps Zimmer's most famous cue that has the word "journey" in it? Yeah, "Journey to the Line." And when "The Last Samurai" came out in theaters, what was one of the cues used in the theatrical trailers? Yep, "Journey to the Line"-theme, or a variation of it. This is probably nothing more than a trailer cue, so it's not worthy going all crazy on Hybrid. Calm down. Move along. And enjoy this treasure.


Hybrid Soldier2013-09-03 13:39:25
Just take the bootleg, and take the OST, and compare... Simple as that.


Anonymous2013-09-05 00:15:02
What part of Taken is edit to make the Journey Theme? The last part runs around 1m34s, is that it??


bob2013-09-05 11:12:11
Hybrid is absolutely right. "Taken" from the official OST is not the film version. There's small variations...
But ... he forget something : "They Are All Perfect" (called here Farewell To A Friend) as we can hear it in this Complete Score is not the film version too.
Hybrid, may be you should add to your track list "They Are All Perfect" from the OST, because this one is the film version.


Per2013-09-05 11:28:11
Track 2 - Spectres In The Fog (from the start) on the OST have a differently mixed, and a little longer, beginning than the corresponding track, on the 'complete', 2m13 (track 9 - "Taken" on the above tracklist)...

There's also some other differences (well, or at least one I can remember), 7m40B/C (track 35 - "Farewell To A Friend") also have a slightly different mix (at one point at least), compared to the OST.

If there's other differences as well, I don't know.


Per2013-09-05 11:29:25
LOL, bob beat me to it regarding track 35 ! ;)


Hybrid Soldier2013-09-05 12:31:14
Well the "Perfect" thing is really not significant enough... I mean, they just undermixed an instrument on OST. It could have been here but hey, I do what I want ! :P :)


...2016-01-04 00:51:04
Hybrid, after going through the OST I just have to ask... From What OST track is the "Journey Theme" taken?
I know you haven't answered this question before and well the question must be quite annoying, but well I'd really like to know:)


6532016-01-04 11:35:52
It's the last 5 seconds of Track 1 from the ost + the first part of track 2. It's basically an alt version of Captured with a longer opening. The flute part in the beginning is in the very end of the first track so has to be edited together with with track 2.

When you see a tracklist here, means that you can get it too by using Google.
It doesn't mean we're all freaked out because of some titles, but more that we too can enjoy and hear more music, alternates and variations of the score.
