Weekend listening sortedA question for everyone who has Seen the Movie: is there another Version of arrival to Earth in the Movie or just the Part from "I had my Moments" ?Fantastic music . So glad they released more than the EP
Honestly, that reprise of No Sacrifice, No Victory at the end gave me everything I wanted, along with the reprises of Arrival To Earth. I just need a few songs with the main 3 themes (Arrival To Earth, Optimus, and Autobots,) to make the score feel connected with the others.My god the arrival to Earth Part in  "I had my Moments" would have been Perfect to give us a New, more mayestic Version of arrival to Earth O just don't get it why they stoped the Song at that Point. But yea "calling all autobots" has defenetly more of the old autobots theme than "I had my Moment" has of arrival to Earth. Still the best Version of the Start from arrival to Earth.It was hinted at in "Presence of Megatron", right? Even then, none of the TF sequels really used it outside of the chanting in ROTF.Calling all Autobots definitely reuses the Autobot themeNick conducted some of it during his tour breaks ! ;)
At the end, James Sale conduct the orchestra, NGS left for the HZ TourI suspect this film is all about intensity. I think none of the characters will get an introduction. The movie will just start in the middle of the war.The Decepticon Motif is used in AOEThanks for the info, Hybrid! Anyway, it's really strange that a war epic is maybe Nolan's shortest film so far. He barely seems to be able to make a movie under 140 minutes.I hope this time will all epic cues from movie inclued in released score :) Cant wait to see it. This is movie event of year.
It gets better after the first listen. You know what you're eaded for and the action sounds better. For example I didn't like Coming of Cybertron, at all. But in the second listen, I started to like the dark sounds, that mistry thing. So yeah, listen to it again, you might enjkoy it more.Why does evrybody assume that the album will be short. Mayne the ttack lengths are 10 or maybe 16 minutes long. He's done it before on Crimson Tide. This had 5 tracks and an hour of playtime.<br>So who knows. Mayne it's a score more than 1 hour.Best soundtrack in the last 3 years? I need to give one another round because I didn't think it was anywhere near that level after the first listen.Can anybody tell me how can Satnam Ramgotra be listed as additional music composer for this? I thought he was just a musicianWell I hope Hans "could" credit everybody and disqualify himself from the "FYC" award races like he loves to... But not easy with a Nolan movie !

Hybrid Soldier2014-04-24 00:01:22
Well I don't think he's taking another break...

It's still the continuity of his 2012 decision to step back... Rio 2 & HTTYD 2 being some kind of parenthesis... If he has a project he cares about, he'll score it... But like I said before, don't expect him to go berserk scoring 7 films a year and saying yes to everything, like in the past... Far from it...


Anonymous2014-04-24 05:49:32
Of all the film composers I know, Powell was one of the few I did not want to step aside.


Anonymous2014-04-24 05:57:03
So, he is not returning for Dragon 3 Or Kung fu Panda 3?

Big interview with John Powell about his career here:

Anonymous2014-04-22 17:51:10
Good read! Thanks for the share!


Ds2014-04-22 21:11:11
Yeah, it's a really interesting and funny interview. Interviews of him aren't that frequent, so I enjoyed it twice more!


isildur2014-04-22 22:07:33
Cheers :)


trent easton navarro2014-04-23 14:04:15
"Thatís why film music is getting terribly uninteresting. Itís a snake sucking its own cock. Everything sounds like The Dark Knight if it is big and epic. Everything sounds like Bourne Identity if it is small and spy-y."

Hard to disagree with this one.

The rest of the interview was also very interesting.

Heard this score,.....

One thing to say: a true comeback!

The score in Rio 2 is nothing but inventive, engaging, and fun.

Yes it's animated movie, and you may expect some mickey-mousing here and there, but the Powellness is still there and improving. The orchestration is highly advanced, the previous themes are smartly arranged (in some you might hear a new theme on the fact that is the old theme).

Having said that, this score still doesnt reach the level of HTTYD, Mars, Robots, and other Powell's animated score( blame the movie i guess), but it ranks one of the highest in Powell's sequel score

Standout cue: "battle for the heart of the forest" and perhaps "bola viva" (from song album)

This score makes me even believe what a mighty score HTTYD 2 will turn out to be

I saw it today, it is such a joy to watch a movie scored by John Powell. Big smile on my face!


Lambegue2014-04-05 20:45:18
Is this as good a score as everybody here seems to hope ?


Pablo Reyes2014-04-05 21:08:06
I'm sure the score will be a masterpiece. Is the movie any good, though?


Ds2014-04-05 21:50:52
I'd say that both movie and score are on par with the 1st one. They are funny, sunny and colourful. More particularly, this score is a very enjoyable, light and playful listening experience. Especially if you were missing John Powell :-)

But the real beast everyone's waiting for is, of course, How to train your dragon 2!

Track lengths can now be seen on Soundtrack dot net.

Also, the song album is out now, and having heard it, I can happily say that Powell plays a pretty big part in the arrangements of many of the songs.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-26 23:30:19
Agreed.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-30 18:30:41
The Bola Viva track from the album has Powell written all over it.


J. A. J.2014-03-31 02:49:45
The songs are pretty much necessary if one wants a complete presentation of Powell's work. Hopefully, the song album will eventually get shown on this site.

He has finally returned... lol


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-21 00:25:50
This is mostly an appetizer to the main course of HTTYD2, but hopefully it will be a very nice one. I can't even begin to say how much I've missed John Powell over the last nearly-two years.


Paul2014-03-21 01:08:12
Loving what I'm hearing on those samples! Glad to have our boy back!


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 01:57:26
What samples? I'm dying to hear the score! I absolutely adore Powell's music and it's incredible how happy I am to have him back.


Paul2014-03-21 02:30:50

Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 02:59:29
Many thanks! The samples are a masterpiece! Can't wait to hear the full score!


Brent2014-03-21 07:31:47
Yes! He's finally back. I'm so glad that I get to enjoy an old fashioned Powell score. I've missed that the past couple of years.

Now, when Gregson-Williams returns, I'll be one happy guy.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 08:35:02
Harry is doing Antoine Fuqua's next movie...


And well, as for live action for JP, I don't think it's gonna happen anytime soon... He carefully choose to score what he wants now... And he loves animation...


Leo2014-03-21 08:42:38
Don't forget the new video game, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Hopefully it gets a release. :P


Saurabh2014-03-21 08:47:02
As much as I love JP's animation stuff, which no doubt is awesome, it's his live action stuff that I'm missing the most. He adds this unique propulsion to the action with the Middle eastern and Indian(sometimes almost Bollywood-esque) drums like in Bourne, Mr and Mrs. Smith, Jumper,etc which seems to be somewhat missing in the current action scene. It's JP's this signature style that I miss sorely in live action.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 09:09:04
Well what came out of Green Zone is probably not encouraging him to return to that... lol


Saurabh2014-03-21 09:24:02
I think anyone who works with Greengrass won't have anything encouraging to tell. Like Cillian said in Inception, " We didn't have many 'meaningful' experiences together." lol

Here's hoping JP crushes it with HTTYD2.


Lambegue2014-03-21 10:09:56
At last !
On this one I won't listen to samples, I'll just wait until I can hear the full album...


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 18:17:07
What's wrong with Green Zone? The Attack And Chase cue is really good and exciting! As Saurabh said, anything by the man is as precious as gold. But that's just my opinion.


Lambegue2014-03-21 18:27:01
I think that Hybrid's commentary isn't refering to the quality of the score itself, but to the working process between Powell and Greengrass.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 20:15:34
Oh yeah, I see how that could be misinterpreted. What happened between Powell and Greengrass?


Ds2014-03-21 20:18:15
It's funny that you guys are speaking about John Powell, I just re-listened to "Bim Bam Smash" from The Bourne Supremacy, what an awesome action cue!!


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 20:25:20
Well he had to re-write Green Zone several times ?

When he understood the mess he was in on Captain Phillips, HZ called John Powell who probably had a good laugh telling him "don't do it"... I guess it says it all...


Jon2014-03-22 15:09:26
Samples sound great! Can't wait!

Saurabh reply Replies: 2 || 2014-03-21 04:54:01
I won't say he finally returned unless it's something live action. But anything by the man is as precious as gold.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-21 13:04:18
Powell does some of his best work in animated movies, and they give him scope to write expansive, stylish music that often doesn't exist in a live-action movie. I never understand why some people feel the need to look down on animated flicks when, really, they probably offer a much better canvas to composers than most action movies. Just look at the wildly varying difference in quality in Henry Jackman's works...


Paul2014-03-21 18:00:06
Exactly. And didn't Hybrid just say Powell isn't really interested in live action at this point? I'm sure he'll do some for his friends, but it would be interesting if he took an animated picture outside of the US industry.
