would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0
But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the score
Tom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>
Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?

So basically, if I got this right, everyone you just listed wrote the score collaboratively like a band would perform a tune? If so, then who wrote what factions of the score, like electronic beats, vocals and guitars?

BTW, who wrote the lyrics for Electro's cues, like My Enemy and the Electro Suite?

Pharrell, one would assume.

I'm trippin' already. Just two days ago, I was listening to the track "Sum Total". Midway in the track, there was a part that reminds me of the first track from the "Crysis 2" soundtrack (co-composed with Lorne Balfe). I laughed at first, but it really doesn't matter to me. I find it enjoyable and fits perfectly for a Green Goblin moment in that picture.

I have a sneaking suspicion that its an unreleased piece but I'm holding out on the fact I might have missed it. I think it bleeds into Your my Boy.

Loving the score already seeing the film Thursday just hoping I can get my hands on this piece.

Spence2014-04-15 07:53:47
Hans loves this style of album layout, it makes the record feel like one long suite or almost like it would in the film, telling the story track by track, instead of just making individual "songs."

I personally love how he does it as it really makes you listen from beginning to end, like an album should be listened too. Though this score may utilized this method as well as past ones, it's still great!


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-15 08:29:30
Well Stephen Lipson did the album program... lol


Bioscope2014-04-15 16:31:15
This style of blending reminds me of Vangelis' concept albums. I personally prefer cues, such as those released for the STAR WARS TRILOGY ANTHOLOGY for example.

And i insist, there is only one man who can compose something as powerful and touching as "I need to know"....


Mike2014-04-14 15:24:56
For all we know, Hans didn't compose "I Need to Know"--at least not beyond any thematic presence of his in there. There are seven guys working on this score. Anyone of them could have done it.


tomPoland2014-04-14 15:47:03
Please, I Need To Know is a typicall RCP melody.


BTW, MTV fragment (Electro fight) shows that this music doesn't work in this movie.

tomPoland reply Replies: 8 || 2014-04-12 08:48:58
Well, Hans butchered such promising franchise.
Soundtrack is awful, edition is awful (WTF with the songs? WHY!?!).
Theme for Spidey is quite nice, but thats about it. 50 seconds on the entire 2CD album.

I'm afraid that other RCP minions will destroy "Venom" and "Sinister Six" also if they will mimic their "master".

Really, Mr Webb? Really? You wanted that over Horner's thematic, old-fashioned, beautiful score? Let me give you standing ovation...


Frank2014-04-12 15:41:27
By "old-fashioned" you mean self-rip right? I really doubt that Horner can actuallly wright any NEW music nowadays at all.


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-12 16:19:04
Horner's score is great, HZ's score is great... What else ?


Hans_is_the_f@cking_master2014-04-12 20:10:46
Every single rendition of Spidey theme both at the piano and guitar is really, really beautiful. Also the love theme wich is probably one of the most touching love themes I heard in a big while. take "we are best friends".And there is a theme for Parker's Family as well wich is really "old fashioned" too. (Heard in the uber mindblowing "i need to know", and "you are that spider guy".
Also Harry's suite is gorgeous. A very "intellectual" piece of music.
And then, obivously "Electro's theme", He NAILED it.
The Album is worth to "investigate"...


Edmund Meinerts2014-04-13 09:36:41
Frank, shut up. Saying that about Horner is a cliche. There was nothing in Amazing Spider-Man that was copied from his older works, nothing. Not even the danger motif. Did you even hear the score or are you just assuming because it's Horner that it's derivative?

Other composers, including Hans, have done the exact same thing as Horner in the past but somehow it doesn't come to define them the way it has for Horner.


tomPoland2014-04-13 09:56:30
Aaron Copland - Fanfare For The Common Man
Just listen. Plagiarism. Hans just speeded it.


Album is worth one time listen on youtube and then forget.
Looks like a bad year for superheroes - first Cap, now Spidey. Hope that Ottman and Bates will do beter.


tomPoland2014-04-13 10:05:39
@Edmund
You're wrong. Crane scene - that was a Titanic right there. But that didn't bother me, because it fitted perfectly.

Hans embedded Pearl Harbor in Last Samurai - did that bothered you, Frank?

TASM was great, and TASM2 is boring and overhyped (Hans speciality).


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-13 10:08:11
No one cares about what you have to say, Poland... You realize that ? Yet you fancy this site like crazy ! Go to nicer shores for your ears !


Anonymous2014-04-14 12:25:07
As far as TASM1 and 2 are concerned I wonder how this franchise was going to sound like if the composer choices on each film were swapped - HZ on the softer first film and Horner on the supposedly more action packed sequel. Hearing a soft superhero score from HZ is almost as hard to imagine as having Horner address the electro fella (provided that he is prohibited from using the danger motif)

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2014-04-14 01:48:15
Finally got to hear the whole thing. I like the theme a lot. It’s way different than Zimmer’s work on Batman and Superman. There are a lot of tracks that don’t do much for me at first, then that catchy theme appears and hooks me in (kinda disappointed track 3 has police sirens at the beginning...). This score is definitely best in its softer moments. “We’re Best Friends” and “The Rest of My Life” are genuinely touching (the latter reminds me of “You’re Not One of Them” from Superman Returns--and the end sounds like Science and Religion, lol). “No Place Like Home” is fun, with some nice moments, but nothing mindblowing. The second half of “Cold War”, starting about 1:50, has a statement of the main theme that’s more outright heroic than any of the stuff and Batman or MOS. The last thirty seconds of Cold War are really something, too. And then of course there’s “You’re That Spider Guy”, which harks back to the finale from the Horner score and is quite good overall, despite the “Davy Jones” theme in there.

But unfortunately, on the whole, I’m disappointed. I don’t like the Electro theme much, and a lot of these tracks are forgettable as far as listening to them alone is concerned. It may work awesomely in the movie, but I don’t think I’ll be getting the whole album. Like someone else said--sorry if that makes me a minority here--I prefer the Horner score, even if this one has its strong moments.


Anonymous2014-04-14 12:18:54
Had the same first impression but somehow I kept returning to it and now it has grown on me. Heck I even caught myself whistling some random segments of the electro tune whilst making coffee earlier this morning - completely out of the blue.

Mike2014-04-12 23:09:57
For Spider-Man? No. For something like TDKR I wouldn't have minded Zimmer going all big and epic like that, though....Give a really memorable final score. TDKR's score worked, but it didn't make the best use of the suites Hans wrote.


Mike2014-04-12 23:14:48
With TDKR it was like they took the Bane and Selina Kyle suites and said, "Love these! We'll use 'em all over the place--and they did--but when they got to the Batman-related new music (both the awesome "Moody Bruce" suites), it was like they said, "Eh, let's just reuse the stuff from movies 1 and 2...."


Ds2014-04-13 12:45:00
Oh Mike you are SO right. I feel exactly the same about TDKR. Absolutely great music in the suites, but "average" use of them in the movie. Except the opening plane hijack scene and the finale, which had longer cues and not just small bits from the suites.


isildur2014-04-13 16:37:38
Yeah. I still can't understand why they chose not to use the effing awesome "Moody Bruce" suites more effectively.

Mike2014-04-12 23:33:43
Your comment exactly....I'l withhold judgement for now, but aside from a couple parts of "You're That Spider Guy" (of those three tracks), I'm not thrilled so far. Anyone else think that about 4:24 onwards in the Spider Guy track sounds like the finale in the first score? Also, this score, like Man of Steel and I think a couple others, has that blatant Davy Jones theme ripoff....


Mike2014-04-13 00:21:59
I do like the Spider Guy track quite a bit, apart from the Davy Jones ripoff. The other two there don't do much for me. But the samples sounded promising enough for a lot of the other tracks that I'm still looking forward to the rest.


Brent2014-04-13 07:26:07

I LOVE it! A completely new field of sound for Hans. It's beautiful in many parts, nail-biting in some (My Enemy), full of action and fun. It's terribly inventive and grows on me with each additional listen. Will probably end up as one of my fav. To me, it's different in the same way The Fan was, many moons ago. The dub step stuff and rock reminds me of Juan Primo content from The Fan, which has always been one of my fav. My guess is the music will fit the movie equally as good or better (my guess) than MOS did, despite the fact I love some of the MOS material better. I can't get the whispering chant out of my head lol. Makes my foot tap happily! Superb job Hans and team!!!

Next up -- another accolade, I'm certain -- Interstellar.

For us in the USA who haven't gotten to hear it yet....best tracks?


Everan2014-04-11 18:39:10
It's difficult to tell which are the best, because they're very different. So far, from what I heard, the quiet or heroic, dramatic tracks are the best, those are from Let Her Go to Spider Guy, except for Sum Total and Still Crazy, those are full action tracks and are weird but cool too.

Loving "My Enemy" though, there's something with that voice and the rythm that I just love.

Off to hear Disc 2!


IrishBreakfast2014-04-12 02:24:12
I'm in the US but got to hear last night before the stuff got taken down this morning. Standouts are 'You're That Spider Guy', 'My Enemy', 'Cold War' and I also have a love for 'Still Crazy'.


Mortifer V.2014-04-12 21:47:42
For me:
"My Enemy"
"Sum Total"
"Still Crazy"
"You're that Spidey Guy"
"The Electro Suite"
"Harry's Suite"


Hans_is_the_f@cking_master2014-04-12 22:06:42
"there he is" (Cool sound)
"I'm Spiderman" (the theme)
" my enemy" (the big action cue)
"you need me" (Peter's theme in a guitar arrengement)
"I need to know" (the family theme with mindblowing electronics)
"We are best friends" (peter and the GORGEOUS love theme)
"Still crazy" (short but cool action track)
" you are that spider guy" ( one of those epic endings)
"harry's suite" (sublime)
"Cold War" ( A littl bit Djwadish, but it's an heroic action cue)


Mortifer V.2014-04-12 23:14:22
Ah, yes, "Cold War" is pretty enjoyable too.

Whose voices are those in the last seconds of "The Electro Suite"? Someone noticed? Seemed the voice of Hans sometime. It was a recording error? It was different, cool!


Lambegue2014-04-12 22:19:48
I don't think it's an error, more like a "joke" from Zimmer. It is obviously from the recording cession : The singer is probably dominic Lewis, and I think like you that the other voice is Zimmer's


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-12 22:23:44
Pharrell & HZ... Seems like a band jamming...

And the singers for the actual whispering on score are Dom & Pharrell ! :)


Gilvane Cezar 2014-04-12 23:01:55
Thank you! Loved the score. New sounds, spectacular suites, more a beautiful work of Hans! ;)

Aside from the fact that the themes from the two movies are similar and are both played on a trumpet (I guess Marc Webb was in the same mood both times in that respect), I find it kinda odd, because if you watch the James Horner/Marc Webb interview for the first movie, Webb says that "it was exciting to rediscover a more traditional, orchestral 'classic' sound", yet in the interview for this one Webb said he wanted the score to feel "contemporary". Why the switch, I wonder?

And also, is it at all possible that, like Henry Jackman's Captain America, we might hear the Horner theme in the film once or twice?

This isn't really related to the score so if the webmasters wanna remove it, okay, but is anyone else getting tired of comic book films?

Now that we have all heard it, can we agree Horner's score is better?


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-11 16:04:05
Can we agree to disagree ?


thejok3rrules2014-04-11 16:43:48
What a world... I won't say you guys are wrong, but I wanted to share my mixed feelings about this score. Whether or not you care ;)


janlee2014-04-11 16:53:52
You are allowed your opinion as we are, you dont like it but i do. Your dislike wont affect me liking it because its up to my ears and brain to make that judgement and I am loving it.

I have heard majority of zimmers work and the soundscape design is totally new to me and I love it.


thejok3rrules2014-04-11 17:32:41
I don't dislike it, but I'm not a fan. This electronic turn it has is unnecessary. Still, I like ''My enemy'', and it is enjoyable.


A nun, A Moose2014-04-11 18:09:18
Hybrid, do you enjoy any film composer besides Remote Control people? I'm very curious.


Mike2014-04-11 18:30:45
@A nun, a Moose:

He's said before he liked the Horner score to the first movie, so there's one. ;)


ggctuk2014-04-11 19:16:07
So far, I'm preferring Horner's score. Not to say this is bad, there's some good moments, but there were more of them in TASM's score that I liked than here.


Zimson2014-04-11 19:45:05
Lol, people shouldn't even compare this with Horner. Would you compare Skrillex to Howard Shore? No.


ggctuk2014-04-11 19:55:43
No because one does film music and the other doesn't.

Or is that what you're implying here?


ERS2014-04-11 22:06:13
Both scores are incredible, I think. The Spider-Man musical franchise lives on!


thejok3rrules2014-04-11 22:26:52
Well, my dear friend Zimson, we're comparing for obvious reasons! As I recall, Horner has scored the first TASM, Zimmer did the second TASM... Oh god! There's got to be a link somewhere!...


Mike2014-04-11 22:48:14
Right on, Joker.


Lambegue2014-04-11 22:49:34
I'll need some more listening to give my opinion on the whole thing, but there is alreaddy something sure : I love "My Ennemy".


Rcp2014-04-11 22:58:04
We have to consider the films tone, characters, story and the different composer. That being said, I can already tell much of the good music has been excluded on this release. The release itself isn't so great from listening experience.

That being said, I'm sure in the film it will be brilliant, I love zimmer, he's one of my favorite film composers, but like I said, just from a listening standpoint, not as good a experience as Horners score. And the fact that music is missing from the release much like MoS.

Love the ingenuity of electros theme though, very bada**


MnM2014-04-12 02:19:09
@A nun, A Moose - Zimmer could fart through a metal tube and Hybrid would call it ingenious and better than anything else ever written by any other composer ever


isildur2014-04-12 14:33:30
Just got my hands on the score and straight away listened to "My enemy". Got to say it is the weirdest stuff from Hans and I completely dig it. It's one thing I love about Hans' scores. There will always be at least one track which is completely new and bold.


Lambegue2014-04-12 16:52:27
Well, after several listening, there is only "My ennemy" that I really love. There are several interesting ideas in the other tracks, but the presentation is way too messy for me. And I'm getting a bit tired by all those electronic ambiant sound-design things. Maybe it will really work in the movie, that would not be the first time that an awful album presentation makes a Zimmer score much less interesting that it could be.
And I can't forget this feeling that the spidey's theme sound like a news opening...

Still, "My Ennemy" is really great, and fits completly to Electro.

So there is no other additional composer than the "magnificent six" ?


Zimson2014-04-12 18:45:03
@jok3errules You seem to have misunderstood me. I'm talking about that we got 2 musical genres here. The first movie has a typical filmscore with lots of classical elements, whereas the sequel got a dubstep/electro/Zimmer(tm) style. You can't compare apples with pears, could you? Also, filmscores are not bound to any genres and styles anymore, nowadays.
