I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...
Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.
And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?I doubt there'll be a score release.The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /:
I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.

Samples, with track times.


Lambegue2014-03-22 13:29:50
Interesting...I kind of like those samples (except what comes after the fourth track of disc 2. If I buy this score, I guess it won't be the deluxe edition for me if there is a big difference of price)


Matt2014-03-22 13:34:22
I really like The Electro Suite sample; innovative but musically rich - can't wait to hear the full album!

OMG! The Electro Suite, very good.!!


0-cool2014-03-22 14:15:30
woodwinds! lol


Saurabh2014-03-22 14:41:33
Looks interesting and a different sound for Spidey. Electro's material looks to be the highlight here. Cold War seems to be the cue in the Rhino chase clip.


MrZimmerFan2014-03-22 15:39:17
I like The Electro Suite, but im no interested at all


ei182014-03-22 17:19:29
Is the album cover on this page the official one or is it the cover art on the amazon page?


Mike2014-03-22 17:37:54
The samples sound relatively promising.... :)


Anonymous2014-03-22 17:51:39
I have a feeling judging from the sample that I'll be listing to "The Rest of My Life" one a lot


Mike2014-03-22 17:54:34
For some reason I get the feeling JunkieXL was heavily involved with the Electro theme... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-22 17:55:33
Really ? All I can hear is an electric little brother to Frost/Nixon & Angels & Demons ! :)


Adrian2014-03-22 18:09:33
Thanks!


Mike2014-03-22 19:32:40
Listening to the samples some more...I say kudos to Zimmer for giving us something very different (and lighter, it seems) than his Batman and MOS approach. When his involvement here was first announced, I was worried he might continue in that vein. If the samples are any indication, I've been proven wrong. But we shall see.


Pluto2014-03-22 22:26:08
Agreed Mike. :) Enjoying the relatively lighter side of the music. Interesting how in the last two superhero releases Hans has done, the CD (or expanded CD) has included his suites.


Mike2014-03-22 22:36:46
I'm still sad the TDKR suites got such a crummy release.... :(

Mike2014-03-22 18:48:23
Given the short length of a lot of the tracks, I think this album will have crossfading.


Ds2014-03-22 19:00:16
You're right Mike. But I don't mind, I like that. In Rush it worked very well in my opinion.

One little month to go!

Mike2014-03-19 13:57:11
:D Is Hans finally seeing the light regarding these types of releases????


ggctuk2014-03-19 14:51:02
A 2-CD release? Cool! But then they have to keep up with certain other films too, like the fact that the Hobbit scores are all 2CDs.
Maybe it's the start of a trend?


Mike2014-03-19 14:55:44
I know this is wild speculation here (and this release isn't even Water Tower), but....does this mean it's possible that we might get a PROPER release of The Dark Knight Rises, with a better selection of film cues and a better release of those awesome suites?


isildur2014-03-19 15:15:01

Music in this, is it from the score?


anfi2014-03-19 15:24:53
@isildur, no.


Eded2014-03-19 15:25:41
isildur : No, it's from Battleship (only the first part of the trailer), but the next song...maybe I don't know.
Hybrid can help us I guess ?


badbu2014-03-19 15:27:47
the music isn't from the score...


Eded2014-03-19 15:28:13
oh and I forget to mention the name of the song from Battleship , it's ''The Art Of war'' by Steve Jablonsky


MrZimmerFan2014-03-19 20:15:11
That's because Webb approach to Jablonsky, but he, for that time, attached to TF4


Jake2014-03-20 02:08:23
And what's is this?

ggctuk2014-03-20 10:06:19
@Mike: Like other previous Zimmer scores, it's not likely to happen with TDKR unless one of the score labels takes it on.


Mortifer V.2014-03-20 13:07:55
The second part of the trailer certainly features some trailer music. Can't tell exactly what track it is or what company though...


Hιctor2014-03-20 21:24:03
Yes but seems a soundtrack. I hope than will be a 2cd score.

The new trailer music is like a variation of "The Art of War" by Jablonsky. Sound great. But is realy similar.

ERS reply Replies: 1 || 2014-03-19 18:17:54
Do you guys like the theme for this score? I'm really enjoying it. It's much more playful and fun than anything Zimmer has written for the DC heroes- befitting of our favorite web-slinger. It also sounds enough like Horner's to establish a bit of continuity.

You can hear it in these two clips:

Mike2014-03-19 21:12:54
I like it a lot, for the various reasons you mention (being different, being playful, and sounding kinda like the Horner theme).

John reply Replies: 14 || 2014-03-17 19:06:59
Does anyone feel like they're watching the news when they listen to the new theme?!!I think its a good theme, but just asking...


Lambegue2014-03-17 19:43:43
Yes, I have this kind of feeling too. We'll see if it has a different feeling when included in the whole album...And also in the movie.
I'm quite curious, excited and worried about this one, finally...


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-17 21:10:25
That's EXACTLY what I thought when I first heard the theme. "LIVE from Channel 4 Studios..."


Lambegue2014-03-17 21:43:30
well, peter Parker is a reporter... :)


Mike2014-03-17 22:03:48
Wow, I wouldn't of thought of it like that, but you're right!

Mike2014-03-17 22:28:58
I'm still surprised Zimmer wrote, by his own admission, a "fanfare"... I was sure he would write another simple, allegedly deep motif that explores the psychology of the character... :P I'm also quite pleased that it bears some degree of similarity to the James Horner theme.


MacArthur2014-03-18 06:41:38
Good. hopefully we will get a good release of the score, (of Zimmer's work) and not pharrell. He can do one track.


Hybrid how much did Pharrell do on this? or how much will be on the album release?


ggctuk2014-03-18 11:31:25
Lambegue: you mean photographer, right? He's never been a reporter in any of the mediums. Plus, he doesn't (yet) work for the Bugle anyways.


Lambegue2014-03-18 11:39:56
Yes, photographer, but still mainly for a newspaper.
Mac Arthur : it seems like Pharrel and the others "magnificent Six" will be a bit everywhere on the score, if each of them played its own instrument (and wrote the music for it, as Hybrid suggested). Nothing official here, but I really doubt that Pharrel did only one track or a single remix on this one.
I have the feeling that you think that every flaw of a score is coming from the additional composers, isn't this a bit harsh toward them ?


Macejko2014-03-18 13:48:42
I think that this "Magnificent Six" is just a marketing gimmick anyway and that the score itself was created just like any other Zimmer score - Hans was the mastermind and the others operated within the borders set by him.


0-cool2014-03-18 14:02:44
doubtful. It's been clear from the beginning that they created a band and played in the same room


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-18 14:05:41
Congratulations, 0-cool, you've been the perfect mark for Hans' hype generating machine. :p


MacArthur2014-03-18 16:27:53
@ Lambegue, I don't mind additional music writers sometimes you need them. But for a score like this I just hoping it's not like Despicable me. Where pharrell wrote most of that score. The reason I was excited about this score was Zimmer, so I hope we get a majority of his stuff here. and have like a TDKR or Rush or even MOS where Zimmer did 95% of the writing just the other guys played the instruments.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-18 19:41:47
Pharrell and Despicable Me? Sure, the score was based on the song...but otherwise it was done by Heitor Pereira (and a pretty good score, too, at least the first one was).

who plays what?
Johnny Marr and Michael Einziger obviously guitar.
Junkie Xl and Steve Mazzaro bass guitar/drums?
and the rest?
Did Zimmer play an instrument?


SanAntonioSpurs2014-03-15 13:34:06
i think piano and synthesizer :D

More pertinent question: Website, why are you letting people vote when they haven't even heard the score??? :p

Ds reply Replies: 10 || 2014-03-14 00:01:12
I have the feeling that this soundtrack will end up being 20min of actual score, 20min of songs from the end credits and/or "inspired by" the movie, and 20min of Hans & his Six enjoying themselves in some jam session.

Ah, and maybe a few remixes for a deluxe edition.

But dont misunderstand me: I REALLY hope Hans takes care of what filmmusic lovers actually WANT to hear when they buy a soundtrack, and provide us a great release. Wait and see!


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-14 00:03:54
Err... That's Hans you're talking about, so I'm afraid your first paragraph is relevant, and your second one will never happen... lol


Mike2014-03-14 00:04:13
I agree on all counts. I hope this album gives a good presentation of the score, as heard in the film.


Mike2014-03-14 00:05:42
On the contrary, Hybrid, Man of Steel had a strangely good release...lol


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-14 00:08:49
Not in my opinion. You can't have a score leaving out Escape From Ship and just... get away with that ! ;)


Mike2014-03-14 00:11:20
Very true, but if you ask me that was the only really noteworthy cue missing. TDKR had most of its noteworthy cues missing! :P


MacArthur2014-03-14 02:27:59
I hope for a good score release. Especially after 12 years a slave. Even if there was only 30 minutes of music. Some of Zimmer's old stuff was only 30 Minutes. aka Drop Zone.


MacArthur2014-03-14 02:29:06
I'm also hoping Pharrell Maybe only writes 1 or 2 tracks. and Zimmer writes the rest.


Ds2014-03-14 08:40:18
Hybrid, except that particular cue, I think Man Of Steel was a very decent release. The 2nd disc was a bit redundant, and I wish it had been replaced by more music from the movie, but I will not complain, it was better than most of the HZ releases.

It's not too late, maybe we (or you, Hybrid) can convince Hans to go for a 2-disc release with 75min of actual score on one disc, and whatever Pharrell crap he wants to put out on the second disc. One disc for the buyers/listeners, one disc for himself. Sounds fair to me :-)


isildur2014-03-14 10:56:38
I am not going to see the movie anyway. So I hope there is a decent amount of music on the disc.


Mike2014-03-14 12:57:14
I like your idea, Ds, but I imagine this album is already done....

Saurabh reply Replies: 3 || 2014-03-13 20:16:34
A little worried? I have low expectations from this one. At least for now. Thanks to Pharrell and Alicia Keys. But I also like the playful aspect of the score that the clips have shown so far.


MacArthur2014-03-14 02:22:09
WHAT...Alicia Keys is on this score BS.


Mike2014-03-14 02:48:31
She worked on a song with Pharrell and Zimmer, supposedly, MacArthur. She didn't do any of the score. ;)


Leo2014-03-14 06:02:46
MacArthur is on fire! :D

thejok3rrules reply Replies: 21 || 2014-03-13 20:10:20
The music played in the clip where Spider-Man and Electro talk while they're surrounded by cops is... Awful? Can't Zimmer come up with something better? We all knew this soundtrack wouldn't be as amazing as Horner's but... Come on!


0-cool2014-03-13 21:12:06
it seems already more original and interesting than anything in TASM


thejok3rrules2014-03-13 21:26:11
Are you totally crazy? TASM had the best blockbuster score in 2012, far ahead TDKR...


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-13 21:35:23
What are you doing here, dude ?


I mean, seriously ?


thejok3rrules2014-03-13 21:41:15
I adored the complete score for TDKR, mate, that's not the point! But TASM was incredible, and I doubt about Zimmer on this one since the clip music sucks...


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-13 21:44:56
So we're not allowed to like TASM here either? Okay, just so we all know, Hybrid's list of Things Not Allowed To Be Discussed at HZ.com:

Filmtracks
Two Steps From Hell
The Amazing Spider-Man
Negative opinions of Hans Zimmer

Did I forget anything?


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-13 22:01:49
I love Horner's score, and would have loved him to return...

But what's the guy's point here ? O_o


Mike2014-03-13 22:10:23
This may be a dumb question.....who all make up the "Magnificent Six"?


Mike2014-03-13 22:19:21
And is it just me, or does it really seem like this movie will be waaaaay more hammy than the first one?


thejok3rrules2014-03-13 22:30:26
Hybrid, I'm glad to know you liked it. I didn't know you don't like us to compare artists...


Pluto2014-03-13 22:53:19
Haha. I think the point is jok3rrules is bashing Zimmer from what... music from a 50 second clip? I mean, seriously? Haven't you ever heard you should not prejudge things? When the score comes out and you still hate it, then you can bash it all you want. But seriously, wait until you hear more of the score and not just 50 seconds from a clip.





Anonymous2014-03-13 22:56:42
hybrid are you gonna put the website music in the player, for the time being? or are you gonna wait for something "official" to come along? :P


Mike2014-03-13 22:58:56
I really hope this album is mostly score, not half score half songs.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-13 23:00:10
The Magnificent Six ?

Pharrell, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, Junkie XL, Steve Mazzaro & Andrew Kawczynski... :)


Mike2014-03-13 23:02:41
Thanks for clarifying that. And good to see some reference to Zimmer's score collaborators on a front cover (even if the name is incredibly cheesy...lol).


thejok3rrules2014-03-13 23:03:27
I don't hate Zimmer and I don't bash on him either... Show me a score I'll love more than TDK (Except Revenge of the Sith), and I'll start bashing on Zimmer. Zimmer is an amazing composer, but those 50 seconds is awful.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-13 23:06:18
Of course I'll wait before I add any music... :)


Mike2014-03-13 23:06:21
I agree with Joker, but I do like the sound of what we've heard of the main theme... :) I'm looking forward to hearing it completely.


RealFfingMusic2014-03-13 23:06:44
Considering Zimmer's recent streak, the trailers seem pretty crappy. But I love the pic.

And to the qustion Mike asked above, Magnificent Six is Pharrell Williams, Junkie XL, Incubus' Mike Einzinger, Johnny Marr, Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro.


Mike2014-03-13 23:20:43
Somebody said yesterday that maybe Zimmer was going full dubstep for Electro, based off the movie clip—I wonder if that part was done by JunkieXL, seeing as he worked on this, apparently.
