What we know about Lorne's work on it? He do "Ranaway Train" aka "The Railroad Waits For No One" or "Finale"? And Zanelli did only "Finale"?Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.
Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)
Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.
Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.

Hello everyone. I have recently watched "Son of God" and was blown away by the music in the scene where Jesus was lashed by the Romans. It's a slower and dramatic version of the main-theme. I was looking to find it on this soundtrack and also in "The Bible", but can't find it somehow?! Is it really not on the soundtrack, or am I just unable to find it? ^^

Please everyone, can you help me to find this cue or isn't it on the soundtracks? Thank you so much in advance and hope for your help.


Alessandro2019-01-23 18:01:31
PLEASE anyone HELP me :(


SPECTER2019-01-24 03:55:49
Check out the soundtrack for The Bible. It may be one of the tracks in that score. If it is not, then you will have to wait for a more complete OST to be released hopefully.

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.

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.

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.

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.
