The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?
can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :D
I really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?

But why? Why did Harry left, Hybrid Soldier? In 2013 he only write a theme for The East. How it all connected with Tony Scott's death?

isildur reply Replies: 5 || 2014-05-05 20:59:33
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is going to be scored by Harry Greson-Williams reports gamespot.

This should be interesting. Buckley did such a fantastic job on the "Ghosts" I though they would hire him again.

I loved Harry/Stephen Barton's work on COD4.....does this mean we might get a return to the sound of MW1? :D


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-05 22:15:15
Harry was supposed to do Ghosts with David but left for his year off in the end...


Mike2014-05-05 22:24:52
Funny you say that, Hybrid, because when I first heard the theme for Ghosts, I thought, "This is reminiscent in tone of the COD4 theme...."


Anonymous2014-05-07 21:05:34
i assume harry will just end up doing the theme and someone else will do the score?

Guys, Rocksteady and Warner just confirmed David Buckley scoring Batman Arkham Knight along with Franchise veteran Nick Arundel! I'm excited about this!!

Awesome news! I hope it would be as kick-ass as this.

Nice score by David Buckley. It's a challenge try to overcome the score by Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe, Brian Tyler and Jack Wall for this franchise, and David didn't, but anyway, this is a good aportation for this videogame saga, is really exciting as should be the scores for this saga


Mike2014-02-02 00:33:46
Again no one talks about the Modern Warfare 1 score by Harry Gregson Williams and Stephen Barton? :( It was awesome, dripping with tension.

Who did David work with from RCP (Meaning what main guy Zimmer, Powell, Gregson-Williams...etc)


trent easton navarro2013-11-07 15:03:19
Looking at his credits, he seems to have mostly worked with HG-W


Anonymous2013-11-07 16:39:22
David has been working with HG-W for years and has written many great tracks for films HG-W scored.

Does anybody know where they would release this? The only website that I found that had it available to purchase said that it was only available in the UK.

Also, what are your thoughts on Infinity Ward following Hans Zimmer and Brian Tyler with David Buckley? Personally, I am livid. However, it is still a Call of Duty soundtrack.

"...what are your thoughts on Infinity Ward following Hans Zimmer and Brian Tyler with David Buckley?"

Why no mention of the excellent, tension filled COD4 score by Stephen Barton and Harry Gregson Williams? ;)


MacArthur2013-11-06 04:35:38
I would comment on that Mike but the thing is it never was released.


MacArthur2013-11-06 16:33:13
@ Mike, who would you want them to follow with.


Mike2013-11-06 17:25:38
I don't have a "who", exactly, but I absolutely loved the tone of Call of Duty 4's score. It was serious, dark, and full of tension. The score was very reflective of the game itself, trying to create a realistic, no-nonsense experience that paints the picture of modern war as it is, with no impossible action scenes or "bad ass" slo mo kills (as opposed to the CoD games from Black Ops onwards :P). CoD4 didn't have an uplifting, heroic Transformers-style theme like Tyler's MW3 score, nor a "The Rock"-style theme like the one Zimmer wrote for MW2. I know it's not gonna happen, but I'd love to have a score like CoD4's again. One that treats CoD like a war game, not an action film.

But then, CoD doesn't treat itself like a war game anymore, really. The reason the CoD scores now sound like action film scores is because the CoD games treat you like Ethan Hunt or Jason Bourne, not a soldier. lol.


MacArthur2013-11-06 20:47:06
Agreed you tend to be a spec force I kinda hope that they go back to WW2 scenario MW2 was good because you were more of a solider. But hearing David's score I like it


MacArthur2013-11-06 22:17:04
My bad They* tend to be more Spec forces.

"Computer Hack" is striking similar to "Shanghai Infiltration" from Splinter Cell: Double Agent.
