<br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!
LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>
Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.<br>2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds<br>3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.<br>4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.<br><br>How did Hans fail here?<br><br>1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.<br><br>2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.<br><br>3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works<br><br>4. Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure.

Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure. <br><br><br>Dunkirk is a sound experiment and not a score. It is rather sad to see a fine composer like Benjamin Wallfisch deal with this nationalistic nonsense.It would be very interesting to get a better sense of what exactly Zanelli's role in the franchise is. He is a very capable composer but his work on 5 was utter scheisse. But that may just be what the franchise calls for. How does the supposedly precarious Hans put his name on all this shit.I would not be surprised if this was done by Balfe finally trying out his real compositional skills outside of him just acting as Hans' copy assistant. Everything that Balfe has done on his own to date is abysmal (okay The Lego Batman movie had some flair but that was probably done by the next generation of assistants). <br><br>Please go back to Ironclad and listen to Balfe before he was HBalfe, to hear his skills. Not very good, right? The man is an arranger not a composer.<br><br>This score will be utterly crap or it will sound like Tron and Transformers. <br><br>Shame as Del Toro and Steven Knight work with real composers like Max Richter who would have excelled here.Instead of concerning ourselves with Sia, we have to be worried about Djawadi. The man has a knick for a simple tv tune. But anything outside of that sounds like a youtube fanvideo. The incidental score for Game of Thrones, especially the wall scenes, is terrible and amateurish. <br><br>All I can think is that the producers must have been pressed with time and had to go with the casio synth nonsense Djawadi presented them with. It is the worst example of scoring for a major franchise. <br><br>Again, Dwajadi does well with his choral bits but he is not a composer, more a theme tune man. Who Wants to be a Millionare would serve him better than a complex franchise. <br><br>Simultaneously, the Paint it Black material from Westworld is outstanding. But was this done by Djawadi or a much more talented orchestrator - can we look into this as it sounds nothing like his work

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?

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.
