Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did it
Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.

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...

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.

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
