Yeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great scoreHe is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.
John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lolim surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)
So first impressions:<br><br>JP knocked this one out of the park! The whole score has this excellent swashbuckling vibe, which is surprisingly aggressive during the action sequences (entirely due to his trademark percussion).<br><br>The writing style is really interesting, it’s basically John Powell doing his usual style but with some Williams flourishes, especially during the softer cues. The Star Wars themes do return, but not as heavily as Rogue One. And of course the JW cue is great, although surprisingly structured more as an action cue as opposed to a concert suite.<br><br>And for some reason the Han theme sounds vaguely similar to Poe’s theme from Force Awakens.Let’s just say “Reminiscience Therapy”.... hold onto your seats! ;-)This score is awesome!! Powell did a great job at making a score that's differet than all the other SW scores, but still you know it's a SW score. He reprised Williams' theme brilliantly and I can't stop to listen to it!!!what about the music when batman makes it back to the cave and lex opens the case of kryptonite. cant find it in theseYeah I can't agree that Inception or Interstellar are superior pieces of scoring. Certainly not in structure, thematic development, etc. <br><br>What defined those scores is the vision behind them more so than the execution. In so many ways, that is opposite of The World's End. Interstellar is a brilliant score that managed to provide each scene with a simplistic tone, but one that captured the atmosphere behind the scenes perfectly, such as the unique use of the organ. Same with Inception with the guitars. <br><br>With a World's End, the vision is nothing special. It is a rock and roll twist to classic music. But the execution brings enormous power and gravitas to the movie.<br><br>I would sum it up by saying that in Interstellar and Inception, the creation of the music drives the movie's ideas while in At World's End, the movie drives the creation of the music.
Nazg&#251;l for Azog I will never forgive. It's not a Servant of Sauron theme, it's a Ringwraith theme, and Azog's not a Ringwraith, he's a goddam Orc, and that theme doesn't belong there, full stop. It was just put there because it sounds "epic" and would "pump up the action scene". Gondor Restored at the end is just as stupid. And the Dreaming of Bag End theme for Bilbo is indeed lovely, and would have been lovelier still if it actually appeared in the movie. Instead it just gets replaced by copy/pasted Hobbit music from LOTR instead because Peter Jackson desperately wants his audience to remember how good those movies were in lieu of the Hobbit ones being any good on their own. Needless to say it goes missing entirely from the second and third score...along with the Misty Mountains melody (the strongest theme of the first one). I still really like those scores overall but they got absolutely butchered in terms of their thematic usage in the films. Then again those movies were an absolute clusterfuck so I shouldn't be surprised.<br><br>WRT Harry Potter, the 3 note theme does work okay for Voldemort, except that there's already a longer, separate Voldemort theme in Philosopher's, one that I like even more, and which only gets used once in Chamber (when Riddle rearranges the letters). I can understand liking Chamber better than Philosopher when you compare the albums, but in terms of the complete scores there's no contest at all, Philosopher wins by a country mile because of Chamber's rehash issues (and there are some good cues missing from the album, such as the Troll and Forbidden Forest scenes).@Edmund<br>The thing with the Nolan scores (at least Interstellar/Inception) is that they are repetitive, in as much as being built heavily around the suites that I’m guessing they use to edit and temp the film. <br>And while the themes are simple I do think they are structured in a unique enough way which builds emotional resonance through the gradual increase in chords/volume/speed/etc. Even Dunkirk is a relatively simple score theme wise, but is so technically complex.<br><br>And personally I’ve never been in love with Inception. I admire it on a technical level, but outside of “Time” I find it to be a fairly cold score. Obviously what it was meant to do so not a complaint, more of a personal preference thing.You know, I actually like Chamber of Secrets much more than Philosopher's Stone. It has the best moments from that score with improved themes. (I actually like the 3 note motif for Voldemort better than it being used for the stone, it already sounded like the Sith theme from Star Wars so might as well go all the way with it.) It felt more tight, better paced, and had an overall more energetic feel to it.<br><br>The Hobbit, I'm not entirely sure where you're getting heartbreaking from. If you mean the state of its release I absolutely agree, if you're talking about its reprisals the only one I had any issue with was the Return of the King/Gondor Restored theme which had nothing to do with Thorin and Bilbo's relationship. <br><br>The Nazghul theme being used for Azog I thought was fine as he was a servant of Sauron in the movies, History of the Ring and Gollum's themes were used effectively, and the new thematic material for the first film, I thought was wonderful. The themes A Baggins of Bag-End and The Lonely Mountain song being used as a Fellowship type of theme are the greatest highlights for me.See, I don't find Inception or Interstellar (or Thin Red Line) all that "complex". Especially not compared to At World's End (how many themes are in that score, like 15? 20? Pretty much all of which show up in rapid succession during the Maelstrom battle?). The Nolan scores are more about building up around very simple conceptual ideas.<br><br>Unless you're talking about emotional complexity, which is a very different thing and not really possible to objectively judge...You know, I don't think I've ever really gotten the full story surrounding that score. I've heard conflicting reports. My personal belief is that Ross did little to no substantial composition and that all the new stuff (themes, suites, new cues and also significantly fresh arrangements of old material) is pure Williams, but that film is full of reused music from the first film (it's actually quite frustrating, not as bad as On Stranger Tides or as heartbreaking as The Hobbit, but a bit of a rehashy mess and it makes the key error of using the Philosopher's Stone motif as a Voldemort theme). That's where I think Ross comes in and was responsible for taking those cues verbatim from the first film and tweaking/rearranging them just enough to match the timings of the scenes without actually adding any of his "own" notes. His role is likely somewhere between additional music, arrangement and music editing (but as Hybrid likes to point out, oftentimes those sorts of roles are really blurred and overlapping anyways).<br><br>A guy at jwfan did an analysis that helps understand the nature of that score, but be warned, it goes *really* deep:<br><br>www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27619-finished-chamber -of-secrets-thematic-and-originality-analysis/

Anyone else find it odd that in the film the score is pitched higher than on the OST?


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-12 11:40:59
Ah, the ol' reverse Game of Shadows trick.


Russel2018-04-14 12:51:09
I'm serious though. Why has this never been brought up?

Explosions In The Sky & Steve Jablonsky Makes A great Post Rock Soundtrack For lone Survivor. This Is Best Collaboration With The Director Peter Berg Just Like Other Movie Like Deepwater Horizon & Patriots Day


Randy Watson2017-04-15 10:05:20
WTF Are You Actually Saying? This Makes No Sense Whatsoever...

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2016-06-16 17:14:52
Just got around to watching this film. I liked the score from both contributors, Explosions in the Sky managing some great understated / suspense work (especially cues like "Set Them Free") and Jablonsky contributing some (also restrained) cues of heroism. It made me happy that the various skirmishes throughout the film went largely un-scored. It kept the sense of having viewed something real, not just some glorified cinematic creation.


Mike2016-06-16 17:17:23
I also felt genuinely surprised by the sense of false optimism (both in the scene itself and in the score) during 47 Down. It sounds so hopeful, and then...!

Bought the Jablonsky tracks. Love them


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-30 17:17:35
"Never, Never, Never Give Up" and "Murphy's Ridge" by EITS are pretty good as well.


Mike2014-01-30 19:02:49
The Lone Survivor cue is a strong one. :)

Brent reply Replies: 0 || 2014-01-15 17:36:31
The cue "Lone Survivor" has to be one of the best I've heard from Jablonsky. Very poignant.

MacArthur reply Replies: 0 || 2014-01-14 19:21:01
Just saw the movie...wow, Very moving film. Makes me appreciate more the men who died for my country.

The cue "Lone Survivor"... the best cue from Jablonsky, period


MacArthur2014-01-12 23:32:50
I sure Hope so, Only going to get his tracks.


MrZimmerFan2014-01-13 00:25:27
Also, the work of Explosions in the Sky is good, cues like Murphy's Ridge, works very well in a stand-alone listen

It appears to be available online here: www.getmusic.com.au/explosionsinskystevejablonsky/store/deta il?id=200172

But it's only for Australia.

Btw, can someone play the samples? It doesn't work for me.


Everan2013-12-20 16:23:34
Nope, it stays playing but there's no sound :(

Is it out yet on iTunes or somewhere? The date here on hte page says it's today but I haven't seen it.


MacArthur2013-12-20 16:25:44
Check throughout the day sometimes iTunes doesn't post things until Later in the afternoon. (Lone Ranger)

Will be enough till I can get the soundtrack.


indy422013-12-21 00:16:49
Can't even find the soundtrack on any American sites. Is it really coming out today?


Everan2013-12-21 02:48:56
Found this: amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00H7P5Q8W/ref=dm_ws_sp_ps_dp

Wondering if the other Amazon stores have it soon.


Hybrid Soldier2013-12-21 08:34:03
It came out in Europe...

Listened to Jab's work, really digging it... Some Black Hawk Down meets Pain & Gain. "Lone Survivor" cue is really great ! :)


Phil2013-12-21 09:13:12
47 Down is really cool


Ronald-Jan2013-12-21 14:41:09
It's available on Spotify :)


MacArthur2013-12-21 18:09:54
Hybrid, will this get released in The US?


MrZimmerFan2013-12-21 18:34:25
There is in Itunes... but in the Explosions in the sky's page of itunes us


jetskcw2013-12-21 19:00:17
I don't even see it on iTunes yet, is it because they haven't updated the East Coast?


jetskcw2013-12-23 05:25:30
Will they even release this in the States any time soon?

Everan reply Replies: 0 || 2013-12-13 15:53:47
Soooo looking forward for ths one!!!
It's odd that a band came in to score then Steve did, wonder why. Still, I want to hear both works.

Are there any samples around yet?

El Baradei reply Replies: 3 || 2013-12-13 09:27:17
This is the future of film music: the composer writes the main theme and the rest is done by a rockband...?! Wow...


Hybrid Soldier2013-12-13 09:31:20
No they didn't work together... EITS wrote it's own score before Jablonsky and Jab came in "fill in the gaps" ! ;)


Anonymous2013-12-13 10:39:33
Jablonsky and Jab?


MacArthur2013-12-13 12:26:31
The stuff by Jablonsky will probably do good. he always does a good job.IMO
