... not really good sound, the sound is very bad, previous version from First Born Records is much better !!
Tommy: Are you crazy? The LLL release is light years ahead of the bootleg.
Yes for the most part, but LLL fucked up 2 cues, The Hospital & Cole Blows His Engine ! Well done... -_-
The most part is really good yes ! Very good re-mastering job here. But as mentioned Hybrid, those 2 cues sound like they have a sampling rate conversion problem ! That's crazy they didn't notice such a thing during mastering...
The Last Race doesn't have any mastering problem, but probably comes from another source. The track is not as clear and smooth as the other ones. And the original drum mix is pretty bad. Anyway, good cue !
I got the confirmation I wanted, Mancina did work on The Last Race (and a few other cues).
End of story.
Thanks for the confirmation. So is it Zimmer/Mancina then?
The themes are basically HZ so...
LLL couldn't credit him since he was not originally credited for the film (back then you rarely had any additional credited anyway for anything).
So it's basically Zimmer anyway.
Yeah, with these earlier projects I think it's safe to say Zimmer was a lot more of a solo artist. Not that he didn't have help, of course, but he hadn't yet reached the "write suites inspired by the film and have my team edit it to scene" stage.
I'll have to listen to the Final Race cue myself. You can usually tell when Mancina's had a hand in things, his voice is relatively distinctive (you can pretty easily tell what cues he did on The Lion King, for example). Although this is so early in his career, maybe not as much.
When would you say Zimmer did get to the "write suites inspired by the film and have my team edit it to the scenes" stage? Because you're right, his older scores didn't do that.
It's quite hard to say. Zimmer has always had a tendency to put long, suite-like cues on his albums, even on his early scores (which is why you get albums like Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker with only five cues, but with crazy 17-minute lengths and such). But back then you got the impression that he was still largely responsible for writing the actual CUES, too - not to mention a lot of those long "suites" were just a ton of cues that ran into each other. Again, I'm not saying he was entirely without help (e.g. Gavin Greenaway on Peacemaker), but more so than today. Exceptions like The Rock existed, but they were just that: exceptions.
If I had to pinpoint a single score where the "I do suites, team does cues" thing started to become the standard Zimmer modus operandi, then I'd say Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl: Zimmer provided the themes, Badelt and Zanelli and all the rest applied them to cues. Which is interesting, because in that score's case it only came about because of the emergency situation of desperately having to finish the score on time. Then I guess came Batman Begins, and Chris Nolan who apparently likes to have Zimmer write music based on the film's CONCEPT rather than directly to cue (although if Batman Begins has suites, I'm not sure we've ever heard them). By Dead Man's Chest and Da Vinci Code, the suite thing was in full force and hasn't changed since.
Keep in mind that this is PURE speculation on my part; I'm sure Hybrid could correct me on a lot of the above points.
Actually I have tried to ask when he actually started that method.
And I didn't get an answer (I mean I did but it was more "why" than "when" lol)...
"No theme, no score. But it took a while to figure that out... you see, you can just start writing to picture. The picture will make it "sound" better. But at the end, you're never going to have a piece that can stand on its own, you've never given the director and yourself the chance to really think it all the way through, and you can't ask [everyone] to help fill in the gaps in the movie, because you have to give them the themes, the sound, the production and the intellectual through-line. So the suite becomes a template for the whole film. Man Of Steel is entirely made from that template (actually it's two suites)..."
King Arthur is a score based on 2 big suites (totally unreleased).
He told me Lion King had some suites too, so it's not a new process... Nine Months has a theme suite (We Can Work It Out on OST).
So I guess it depends, on the schedule too...
I'd love to hear the King Arthur suites. That score is one of my favorites. Although, I imagine they wouldn't contain much that we haven't heard in other forms in the complete score.
I don't know King Arthur was pretty lengthy as a score album.
and I liked it to.
HZ did a lot of cues himself on TDK, comparatively speaking :P
And as far as we know MoS
Jeez stop giving your opinion about who did what since you have no clue or anything interesting to add but "I think"... :(
Am I wrong.
There would not be six additional guys in Zimmer did most of the scene-to-scene scoring himself.
Am I wrong.
My bad Forgot to post my name.
if* Zimmer did most of the scene-to-scene scoring
There were 4 not 6 mike. :)
Right, sorry. Must have been thinking of another score. Still, I stand by what I said.
MacArthur is just anxious to keep himself in the illusion that every piece of music there is in the world is somehow connected to Hans.
Right the Turkish March by Mozart is Hans Zimmer, Or Star Wars is Hans Zimmer.
Quit being a butt-hole! Mace.
Ohhhhhhh snap! He called you a butthole, Macejko. You better come up with something really scathing to come back from that one. Might I suggest "poophead"?
I think I'd rather go and think about my life, Edmund. After Mac's harsh words, it just... It just doesn't feel the same...

La-La Land Records and Sony Pictures Entertainment present the original motion picture score to the 2011 feature film drama restless, starring Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper and directed by Gus Van Sant. Renowned composer Danny Elfman (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, BATMAN, SOMMERSBY, BLACK BEAUTY) crafts another notable original score – a delicate, but stirring work, in the vein of his music for MILK and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, that expertly finds the heart and soul of Van Sant’s delightfully offbeat romantic drama. Produced by Danny Elfman and mastered by Patricia Sullivan at Bernie Grundman mastering, this special release is limited to 2000 units and includes exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer Tim Greiving which feature comments from director Gus Van Sant. The attractive art direction is by Dan Goldwasser.

Ordered! (together with Poledouris' The Hunt for Red October) Another holy grail I can cross of my list :D
I was just on Discography. What is the red exclamation point by the CD for?
I think that means the page it links to is relatively new, i.e. you'll find red exclamation points next to most releases from this year, plus any complete/expanded pages that have been recently created, like the Inception sessions page.
