What's with the credits here? Howard Shore? No Lorne Balfe?I genuinely was surprised that they went with Richter in the first place. <br><br>Literally just came out of the movie and I can’t believe such a dull and generic score could come from the names attached. What happened? Other than that beautiful almost sweeping string theme (that went nowhere) - there’s nothing. <br>I kept waiting for the music to peak and reach a hundred but it never did. <br><br>It’s no Interstellar, no First Man, no Gravity, not even The Martian.Link to said theme?The synth man creating a mostly synthesizer score? what a shock...because that's what Hans does
Main theme is on Youtube. I quite like it. I prefer Hans doing themes like this rather than the stuff he is doing with FIFA.I'm surprised no one is talking about this one, its one of Rupert's best scores imo.Lately I have been listening to the album carefully, and the truth is that I did not quite understand why Hans did not just use a big orchestra instead of the synthesizer.It would have really been interesting to see Ritcher scoring a chase on the photo, although without a doubt his work would not have been anything generic.Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...
^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cues
Artemisia Suite = History of Artemisia <br>Greek Action Suite = Marathon <br>Xerxes Rebirth Suite = From Man to God King<br>Greek Sacrifice Suite = ???<br>Artemisia’s Childhood Suite = Artemisia’s Childhood<br>Greek Attack Suite = Greeks on Attack<br>Queen Gorgo Suite = Queen Gorgo<br>Xerxes Thoughts Suite = Xerxes Thoughts<br>Greek History Suite = History of the Greeks<br>Greek Victory Suite = Greeks Are Winning<br><br>Hope this helps! :-)Hybrid can you tell us what album cues are the suites ?!well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be releasedCool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...

A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques.
Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.
It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.

Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.

I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...

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!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 1 || 2015-02-03 13:44:21
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...

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
