Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.
IS * lion kingBest film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...
But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far on top for me. It feels like the ultimate culmination of Jeremy Soule's work on the the series along with symphony-level quality for the town and exploration music.I go with Lair and Outcast as most favorite.<br><br>And also the Blizzard games music like Word Of Warcraft, StarCraft and Heroes of The StormI think a big part of it is that half of the cues written for the film are 30 seconds or less (or even 10 seconds in some cases). It’s almost impossible to have thematic development when you are constrained like that, so I do understand. Still, it’s hilarious hearing Zimmer give the Simpsons theme “Lion King” treatment in the main theme suite, shame that wasn’t used at all in film.<br><br>As far as the shorter cues go though, the Church Prophecy is pretty cool, and I personally love the Green Day organ cues. That was genius on whoever’s part decided to do it...Yeah it's weird how little overlap there is between the complete score and the album. I think over half of the music on the album didn't end up in the movie, at least not verbatim. I agree it makes for a much better listen, although in my version I've added a few of the better/more substantial cues from the complete score (like the cool Angels & Demons-style "Church Prophecy"/1m11-12v17, which I'm almost positive is an Atli Örvarsson contribution).Ah thankyou, thankyou very much :)

Hey this is my tracklist !!!


Anonymous2012-07-10 00:41:40
No it aint


Mr Tweedy2012-07-14 20:30:54
Yes it is.

I compiled all the tracknames found on ascap on put them in chronological order and it was exactly the same.


Anonymous2012-07-15 04:04:17
Then the cues are not your own then, are they? If you made up the titles, fine, but this is different.


Mr Tweedy2012-07-15 04:26:25
Well... "I Dont Make Waves" and "You Guys Hungry ?" weren't featured on ascap. I made up those titles. I wonder how you ended up with those as I don't think we have connection together.
And "6m37 Kill Big Shark" is named "We've Got to Kill Her" on ascap. Don't know which one is the true one.


Anonymous2012-07-15 04:44:47
Oh I see. Then I take back what I said, I do apologize.


Mrs. Tweedy2012-07-15 12:21:03
don't cry

Not entirely complete, it's missing like 5-6 min. from where they are getting the experiment ready (before '2m17 The Experiment').

Some interesting things I've noticed now when I've taken a "look" at the film again, is that quite a lot of stuff is actually not used. Like most of 'Aftermath', and, as far as I could tell, both 'Susan Softens' (part 1 on OST track 2) and '2m13 Susan's Speech' is not in the film at all.

And perhaps the best part of the whole score (in my opinion), the action variation of the 'Aftermath'/main(?) theme (++) in '6m37 Kill Big Shark' seems to have been replaced with parts from '3m18 Armageddon' (09 - Anarchy on OST) in the film... don't know why. Maybe the original cue didn't work as they thought. Have no idea. But to me it's bit of a strange choice... (I have the region 2 DVD, so I don't know if it's different in the US version ?)

And some other stuff, like '1m2 Susan's Cause' is completely different in the film. And there's some other differences in the mix etc. as well, like some choir on the versions on this leaked version not in the film and so on...

Its possible Kill Big Shark/Aftermath were remixed after the movie itself was re-edited to have Susan die during that segment

One of the most instantly recognizeable modern filmscores. Trevor has struck a very powerful and memorable theme to go by the years, and it is so memorable that if Aftermath was played 20 years later when i'm like 42 years old-- I'd still immediately sit up from whatever I'm doing, and drift back into the serenity of the score.

And I'd tell my children, you see? Back then visual effects in my time was sooo amazing!

And they'd say, "--what?? you call that amazing???"--
