Edmund ! For YOU !! lolthis one is my pick for the oscar as well. hope it wins : )When will this tracklist be leaked?I heard and thought that Zimmer stopt scoring superhero movies (including Justice League and what comes after) because it has taken 13 years of his life and he wanted to do something elseWere the two men no longer talking or did Zimmer anticipate Snyder's departure as he did in Pirates?
@Olive: Rumors says Zimmer didn't want compose Justice League because of Snyder, and left behind JunkieI agree that Elfman's theme fits into Nolan's films as long as they are adapted to them. However, I think the way things have gone was not bad. TDK trilogy was marked as a project fruit of Nolan's unique vision. Although the themes do not respect the orchestral tradition are more memorable than those composed for more than half of the films of heroes of the last 25 years.Zimmer's entry into the genre can be interpreted as a breath of fresh air in a saturated marketplace at the time. But I agree that the lack of originality these days falls on Zimmer and his company and that the goal of it goes far beyond bringing talents to light.Now we need something new, again.@Hybrid any news on Season 2 soundtrack release?Of cause Balfe worked on it !!! His whole team are credited !!!!!!!Honestly, the purpose of RCP is essentially to take Zimmer's style and make it widespread for use...WB not using ANY RCP to score this seems to have been deliberate, as there's literally no reason it couldn't be done.
^ hahaha :D<br><br>I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings?They're starting to send screeners. Finger crossed for the FYC :DThe score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmerís Superman theme, something we havenít heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.
Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.

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...!

So Good!

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.

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: 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)


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

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: 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
