Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.<br><br>On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack
In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modern
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.
Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..

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?


MacArthur2013-10-03 06:29:29
Is this out?
