Sorry, just found it.Tried that, couldn't find an author named Clemmensen who reviewed it. (I don't know where to look I haven't seen this guy's reviews before).Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).
Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.
'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :PWhat site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.
As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.

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.
