Same here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.Just listen to all of it !!!! It’s a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.
Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The ShellI totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>Am I the Only one that feels Johánn Johánnsson touch everywere along this score?<br>Truly is the Vangelis reminiscense in each song, but the style is more near to Johánnsson than Wallfisch and of course Zimmer.<br>Could be Denis Villeneuve's suggestion, or maybe Benjamin has study Villeneuve last works, but is unquestionable that 2049 score sounds very Johánnsson.<br><br>Many people these days talking bad about 2049 score (No melodies, No Vangelis, All ambiance...), but the reality is that this work has perfect match with the rest of the film.<br><br>2049 is different to the original Blade Runner. Yes it has the same world and feeling, but is another director's vision, and the music follows (perfectly) the same way.
OK, there seems to be a regular edition at amazon and other retailers with the same content (2 CD) for a cheaper price than the limited one. It's nonsense. Will the record label pay me back a couple of bucks? I don't think it is ethical business at all.Saw the film last night and the music score was really good . Big and epic . It is how more scores shouldYou're right, matthew, but i'd said everyone here is used to this kind of album release with HZ/RCP, like The Thin Red Line or Inception with a lot of suites and not so much of the actual movie score. Personally i don't mind because I know the full score will be release some day and I really enjoy suites. However, I'm afraid there is nothing else to do that wait.<br><br>ps : i think Hans or RCP has no right to publish a full score (even they own), it's up to the studio--If they decide to release a proper FYC hopefully that will contain the film order/versions/unreleased/etc. <br><br>But I do agree, this is one of those scores that is tremendously improved by the film flow. Honestly I never understood the thinking behind putting out an album if you aren’t going to use the full 79 minutes it allows. Especially when you are missing cues which are vastly different from what’s presented. Why “Escape From Ship” or “No Time For Caution” weren’t there to begin with confuses me.Love Ocean Bloom. Hybrid, no release date yet for the album? The first episode is coming out in a week.
as a giant fucking fan of this movie, I can't put it into words just how lazy is this presentation of the actual music. <br><br>it annoys the shit out of me when I read comments on youtube, Itunes, Amazon and also here, like whats the opening music? and the stupid answer is from everybody: "oh yeah, you're looking for The Mole, thats the opening scene!" well, fuck, the movie opens with The Mole, but it goes on for only 2 minutes, and the rest 4 minutes is unused, and the actual 4 minutes after 2 minutes, from the opening is unreleased. it is a minor fact that seems 100% unnoticed by every person. because the music is non-stop in the film, I consider the opening from the logos, until we arrive to the beach.<br><br>Shivering Soldier is the first track that appears "as used in the film" form on the release.<br><br>Supermarine is a misleading action suite released before the premiere, because of marketing purposes, I think the studio was a bit scared, so they wanted to demonstrate that this is more of a summer blockbuster than a black and white war movie. <br><br>Home is the classic "different version in film" case, only to give Hybrid Soldier the chance to come here and give a defense speech about how Zimmer, Nolan, and every soul at warner bros, at water tower music, at remote control and every world-class star status earned professionals in hollywood couldn't make the "as used in film" presentation dream come true. the "no the time for caution" event is still comes hilariously amature from a creative business built on the words: "Make it happen" <br><br><br>include the bible and i agreeBalfe is with all this year. <br>Best tv score of the year: Genius<br>Best movie score of the year: Lego Batman<br>Best action score of the year: Geostorm<br>Best drama score of the year: Churchill<br>And best scifi score: Ghost in the shell<br>2017 has been a hell of a year for him<br>It really is an excellent soundtrack with cool action and big epic tunes .Thanks for reply. I asked Watertower Music and they said they did limited edition and that it may be sold out. I was looking if somebody got it from them or if it's just a mistake on their part.

Was new music composed for this movie, or is this just the score from The Bible verbatim?


Mike2014-11-01 01:28:27
I guess I should say, was ANY new music composed? Obviously several of the tracks were carried over, but that doesn't mean there couldn't have been a few new cues or something.


NM2014-11-01 10:58:28
I didn't hear anything new. Then again I don't think it matters either way, 'The Bible' score wasn't anything that new to begin with. I was and am still genuinely disappointed with what Balfe (& friends) were asked to produce for this, given his talent. It's not bad music or anything, but it's a really safe score given the subject matter.


JamesT2014-11-01 15:13:35
Characterize "safe" in this instance.

Unadventurous, staid, playing to the 'modern' sound et al.

It's not terrible, it's got some nice textures, but it just doesn't do much for me. I know it's not a fair comparison, but listen to the dynamism, daring and lyricism of 'The Prince of Egypt' and then compare it to this. It's not that I expected another musical or animation score, far from! But this just, I dunno, just doesn't capture my imagination at all.

Listen to "In The Beginning" on this very site, it's the same kind of basic-melody-over-string-ostinato-build-up you hear nearly everywhere nowadays. It's like a weak version of Chevalier de Sangreal.

That doesn't mean it's bad music, as a standalone piece it's pleasant enough, it's got a nice solo performance, it just doesn't evoke god, or the bible, or faith or struggle. The feeling it evokes to me is closer to American triumphalism if anything, indeed I can imagine it set to the beginning of a Call of Duty game.

best Music.. And i Love it.. when i watch the flim i cried. its also cause by this score. Best music for the best movie of Jesus history.


trent easton navarro2014-05-05 22:43:57
Guess you never heard Debney's The Passion of the Christ ;)


Mike2014-05-05 22:45:22
The Passion of the Christ score was BRILLIANT. Beats this one by a long shot.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-06 00:35:59
For goodness sake, forget Zimmer OR Debney. What about Miklos Rozsa or Alfred Newman? To say that this is the best biblical or Jesus-related score is practically criminal...


Anonymous2014-05-06 04:47:23
For goodness sakes, silence the panel. I think this is an extremely individualized experience, across all those superb films and scores. Let it resonate with whom and however, please.

Son Of God was amazing!! The Bible series also touched my entire family! We were close to God before but now thanks to the lovley Roma Downey and Mark Burnette we are more closer to our Lord than ever. Thank you Roma and Mark for your beautiful work!!

You should leave this place before Hybrid (Or someone else (That includes me and everyone else) kicks you out of here. You loved the music, fine, but don't come here and yell how great God is.

How many tracks are totally new?

Are there any that were just renamed or shortened from The Bible?

Lorne Balfe is doing the Hercules score?


trent easton navarro2014-03-26 09:48:15
God, I hope not! Here's hoping a composer with some actual talent ends up scoring this one. Would love to see Ratner reunite with Powell on this one (that or Elfman)


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 11:50:56
That would be pretty uninspiring news if it's true.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 11:58:26
Goddammit. It says Balfe's name indeed on Wikipedia. That doesn't mean anything yet, but still...what a thoroughly blah choice of composer.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 19:11:29
Turns out it's not Balfe at all, but rather Fernando Velazquez! That's one of the most interesting composer choices I've seen in a long time. Can't wait to hear what it sounds like, his score for The Impossible a couple years ago was amazing.


trent easton navarro2014-03-26 19:42:37
There's a filmscore God after all!


Spence2014-03-26 19:46:59
Film Music Reporter just reported Fernando Velazquez will be scoring the film.


Anonymous2014-03-26 19:58:11
Huh, the Wikipedia editor must have been a little too hopeful ;)

Yes, thank you, Spence.

trent easton navarro2014-03-26 20:48:26
proves once again, never trust wikipedia. just like the time they listed Elliot Goldenthal as the composer for Thor 2

Never trust wikipedia, especially about film music. That's one of the most ill-documented subjects on it...

Luffy reply Replies: 1 || 2014-03-18 14:50:27
Hi Hybrid

Could you please tell me, are there any new tracks in the album, beside fisher of men. Are the tracks the exact same as the bible ost or are there any tracks with alternate versions etc.

Same Q. :|

Looking forward to seeing the movie. Don't get me wrong, I have strong convictions about my Faith and The Bible. LOVED the mini-series, certain I will love the film. BUT WHY the dialog over such wonderfully moving and spiritually-infused music?!? Rather aggravating, thought I don't like mentioning one in the same compliant about the other :) The track names themselves give the appropriate context for the music. Although, I would have bought the soundtrack alone for tracks 13 (original version used in the last half of the trailer), 8, and MOST CERTAINLY 5. Hoping for a complete release someday!

I really don't understand why some people think it's a good idea to add dialogs from the movie on the original soundtrack. The good thing is that we already own clean versions of almost all these tracks, so it's no big deal :-)


Hybrid Soldier2014-02-16 13:56:03
Yeah actually the only good addition is the great track "Fisher Of Men", which is "clean"...

All those cues are from The Bible series anyway...


Bioscope2014-02-16 15:27:04
And Universal does it again.... Will they never ever learn?


RealFfingMusic2014-02-16 17:40:59
I hope there'll be a clean complete score.
