Yes ! Now this is ACTION MUSIC . Not just loud drums or Baaaaaaams!!!Go watch the film and you'll understand why there's no Rachel's themei believe that glimpses of the original would have solved the problem ;)Not actually though...probably a bit more Jackman than there actually is, eh? ;)@James<br><br>I have heard the original Vangelis theme but I was referring to a new theme for this new movie.
Okay. I'm on the Lorne Balfe bandwagon now. I don't care if this movie is trash, this is a great listening experience, which is sometimes difficult to find in a score these days.Composer credits !@spectre<br><br>She has a theme! Search for "Rachael's Song"!I agree. It is the most beautiful theme of the previous film and one of the biggest in Vangelis' career.I feel like there should have been a proper theme for Rachael. She was a really important character in both movies and it would have been nice to hear a sad melancholic melody for in her in some kind of Flashback or dream sequence for Deckard.
$$$$$$ the soundtrack is FANTASTICSame here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.Just listen to all of it !!!! It’s a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!
No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The ShellI totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>

Finally got a chance to listen to this one all the way through (after seeing the film) and I can definitely see why HZ is proud of it. It's funny that he says "Inferno" is his most experimental/dark score because honestly, I think The Fan takes the cake.

You can hear a lot of obvious foreshadowing of some of Zimmer's later work; the piano/heartbeat effect from Hannibal, the electronics of Chappie, even some of the whispering for Electro. Also props to the beautiful incorporation of the main theme in "Letting Go"

My only gripe is that this doesn't belong with a better film, I feel like more people would discover and appreciate it alongside something like The Rock or Crimson Tide.


mpolonest1232017-02-15 21:21:40
Oh, and forgot to mention the EXTREMELY obvious inspiration for The Kraken in "Gil's End"!


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-16 03:49:19
Yeah, you're right! It's fantastic!

So from what I found HGW wrote 5 cues of this score, Rona 3...

Gonna need some checking before I can tell which cues ! lol


NotSoAnonymous2015-02-03 16:47:07
I really love this score. It seems to always be forgotten about

The Fan expanded score is ultimately one of the BEST soundtrack Hans have ever composed. 1996 was indeed the Year of Hans. "Broken Arrow", "The Rock"... and now, The Fan. Main Titles and Game Tension are just a few of my favorite tracks and Terrence Trent D'Arby (Sign Your Name, Wishing Well, etc.) have done a tremendous job performing "Letting Go" and it was, in my POV, emotional.

Great score! The main theme is so simple and efficient in the movie and outside!

I noticed a thing : Transformers "Skorponok" theme has a lot of similarities with some cues of this score. Example : Gil Falling Down : 1:00 - 2:00 Sacré steve! :D


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 13:59:46
What's this? The Transformers score sounding like something older? The devil you say?!

I just "found" this myself; looking forward to giving it a listen once I've got my damn finals out of the way...


Hulk2014-05-08 14:12:41
I don't said the devil by the way! :D


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 14:26:08
I know, I know, it's just an expression. Jablonsky's scores are known for helping themselves to the occasional idea or theme from a previous score, so this doesn't really come as a surprise to me, is all. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 14:41:21
Before being blamed, Steve would need to have anything to do with Skorponok...


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 15:01:15
So is Skorponok really a solo Trevor Morris cue? Not Jablonsky/Morris, but just Morris?


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 15:08:56
Oh Morris did work on it, and probably was not alone... Anyway... I told The Fan is the father of many scores... :)


LP2014-05-08 18:42:56
I thought Harry did more work on this. And Jeff Rona did a few cues toward the end, involving rain/water (since he had worked on White Squall)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 19:02:54
Harry didn't write on The Fan... He only conducted it...

Rona worked on a few cues like The Rescue or Fans Are Losers...


LP 2014-05-08 19:52:24
Thank you for the clarification.


Anonymous2014-05-08 20:46:05
FINALLY!!! Excellent stuff, just great. Game Tension is superb!!


rockhound2014-05-09 08:04:29
I also thought, that Harry Gregson-Williams was more involved in this score, because a couple of tracks have the Enemy Of The State sound. Harry also said in his Tony Scott tribute on facebook the following:

"I first met Tony way back on his rather grim movie 'The Fan'. You could say it was on that score that Hans Zimmer passed scoring duties of his movies over to me."

But maybe he meant that in a different way. Nonetheless it is a fantastic score by Hans.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-09 09:08:45
Harry meant The Fan was Hans' last score for Tony and he handled after...


And yeah, the big EOTS rips are just temptrack...


Steve2014-05-10 01:02:54
ummm how were there EOTS temptracks in The Fan if EOTS hadn't come out yet??


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-10 09:14:42
I obviously meant the other way around...

Anyway since it's out I uploaded the big one... Ed, listen to it... :P

Hybrid: It would be great if you could put up an additional track on the player - perhaps Game Tension or Gil's End :)

Mike reply Replies: 2 || 2013-09-12 17:14:28
"Main Titles" is fantastic.


JamesT2013-09-12 18:24:35
Has this leaked?
