You guys are hilarious.and that means, tom did the perfect job. they wanted a shitty score and tom delivered. i am sure they would have fired desplat, williams or whoever, just because they would have failed. the task was to compose a shitty score and tom did that. their problem, if nobody buys the soundtrack album or avoid to see the film, just because of a bad filmscore. for us it is great, because we save money.The fact that the directors insisted on a shitty score doesn't absolve the score from being shitty.Go to JXL's Youtube channel and watch his latest video. He talks about the process of scoring the film. If you have a problem with the score, direct your criticism and complains at the director/producers/studio because JXL delivered the score they wanted. They wanted to stay away from themes and wanted an a very alternative score. If Tom didn't deliver that, they would've found someone else who would've done the job and you'll still complain that it doesn't sound how you wanted lol. <br><br>I've heard a couple of tracks which I liked a lot. <br><br>Stretcher Carry is avaibale on soundcloud. It' merely recreation but it's awesome almost like film version.
How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lolOlive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!
@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.
Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)

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

WTF Are You Actually Saying? This Makes No Sense Whatsoever...

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, Very moving film. Makes me appreciate more the men who died for my country.

MacArthur reply Replies: 3 || 2014-01-11 00:29:05
Coming to U.S. January 21st

MrZimmerFan2014-01-12 17:44:11
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

Ds reply Replies: 14 || 2013-12-16 19:39:28
It appears to be available online here: 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)

Hybrid Soldier2013-12-20 16:26:59
Just bought it, gonna listen to this later ! :)

Hybrid Soldier2013-12-20 16:28:34 qref=dac_2

Everan2013-12-20 17:14:33
Cool samples :D
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:

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 2001-2017 OST
