Sure, Home sounds like a country version of Time, but is so underrated.. the whole score is very nice but nothing compared to Pirate, except Finale maybe.came back to this one for a while. always found "silver" and "home" very soothing.@Superultramega<br><br>What's odd is that the PR theme was used in the marketing. Same with Zimmers material being used in the Justice League trailers, so obviously the studio liked it enough. Probably the directors choice.@superultramega: The three Star Trek movies are compose by the same composer, and the producer is J.J Abrams.<br><br>And the theme is the same.The score enchances the more emotional and physcical side of the character, and i love that.<br><br>I believe this movie don't benefit a more classical adventure score, reminds (outiside, the movie is an adaptation for the 2013 reboot) the vision of Jason Graves for that game, saving distances.<br><br>And yeah, there is a ideas everywhere the score.
The thematic continuity complaint is a problem with the movie industry in general now. Not just Pacific Rim. It's a problem with Marvel, DC, and hell, any movie series really. Even the new TMNT movies, as good as Jablonsky's score for the second one was, still couldn't keep the original themes. <br><br>The only ones that do keep the original thematic material lately have been Transformers, Star Wars, Star Trek (at least the first 2's scores I don't know about the 3rd's), Pirates of the Caribbean, a few animated film series, and Harry Potter. <br><br>Not sure if this is a director or composer fault (probably director/studio), but it's just something we're going to have to deal with for a while until the next phase of film score trends come along.I think one of the things that plague this score (and many others) is that nowadays everyone feels the need to not only have a opinion, but share it as quick as possible on social media or message boards. But music isn't always likable at first listen. Usually (and I speak for myself here, but I'm pretty sure any people feel the same) the quicker I love a song, the quicker I'll get bored by it and forget it. On the other hand, scores or songs that took me a few listens to fully appreciate tend to have a much better longevity in my playlists.<br><br>At first I wasn't impressed by this new JXL effort and, if I had listened to it only once or twice, I would have quickly labelled it as "typical JXL drummy stuff but not as cool as Mad Max". But after seeing the movie and giving the album a few more spins, I'm now ranking this among his best scores. It's packed with crazy ideas popping up everywhere, neat sound effects, an epic main theme and a few very touching light moments.<br><br>I'll admit it's a tough listening experience, mainly because of the very long tracks which sometimes tend to 'hide' the great stuff. But it's so damn worth it. In the context of the film it's simply awesome and in perfect sync with the pictures, it enhances the emotion, the action and the epicness in a way not many scores do. Junkie XL definitely improved over the past few years. Of course this score bears his mark and his sound, it's certainly not a classical score, but it's incredibly rich and detailed. It's just not obvious, and requires a bit of patience and perseverance. I'm happy I didn't judge it immediately, and I can only invite you to spend a little more time with it before dismissing it (and its composer) publicly.<br><br>Just my 2 cents :-)There are some fun action cues and an interesting mix of electronics that sounds like a hybrid of Tron Legacy and Chappie but is honestly so forgettable outside of that. Why on earth did they opt out of using Ramin's themes? <br><br>It would be like if POTC2 came out and instead of using "He's a Pirate" or any of the other motifs, Disney hired a Hans Zimmer protege to come in and write their own take on the material. When I go to see Star Wars I expect Star Wars. With this I expected at least ties to the first one.So I'm guessing no one knows if Zimmer did this or not?It is sound like that.<br><br>Multiple times in the score, there is sounds like Tron
I just said this before and I want to say it again: <br>Shao industries sound like Tron LegacyAt least Tomb Raider and A Wrinkle of Time have a theme.Agreed. Itís simply not that memorable. Out of Pacific Rim 2, a wrinkle in time, tomb raider, and hurricane heist I thought for sure at least ONE would be a hit. Unfortunately all four of them seem pretty forgettable. Really hoping Hans puts something memorable and iconic together for X Men Dark Phoenix.The first movie has memorable theme and enjoyable action tracks, this one, has one or three actions cues i have enjoyed, more than than i expected, but the main theme is forgetteable.<br><br>Jablonsky would fit if is the Jablonsky, for example, for TF5 or first Transformers (and i am guilty pleasure fan for Battleship)<br><br>And now i lost respect in the whole internet :Dyeah but this movie would be better fit for a jablonsky score.<br><br><br>he has bigger themes and a richer sound<br>
I will said this, is more enjoyable than Hurricane Heist.<br><br>But the first was more memorableI think have a lot of depth in there, the orchestrations, the tension (reminds a lot of Herrmann) and his main theme.<br><br>And yes, is one of the best of this year, for the moment.Nathan Stornetta. the music in the video sounds really good. im looking forward to this release. is there also a chance to purchase the music from Kynren?It is out. Not bad but it doesn't sound very epic or memorable. Tomb Raider had better moments.<br><br>The orchestration is so empty.<br>I don't think it's one of JNH's bests, but it's really one of the best scores of this year, until now.<br><br>I think it will probably be surpassed by his other scores coming this year, especially Fantastic Beasts 2

1) Stark theme ("King Of The North")
2) Main Theme
3) Arya's theme ("Valar Morghulis")
4) brand new melody

Macejko2014-06-13 11:02:19
Correction: at the end it's basically rendition of the Main theme mixed with Daenerys' theme from the first season's "Finale".

the other season are in good order ?

Macejko reply Replies: 0 || 2014-06-10 13:52:46
Well, it's definitely the weakest of the four scores. But it's still pretty great. It absolutely delivers in the field of raw, brutal and chilly northern material - "Watchers On The Wall", "Thenns", "The Biggest Fire The North Has Ever Seen", "Let's Kill Some Crows"... all very, very good tracks.
This score is very dark overall - except for beautiful and awe-striking "The Children" cue, it lacks epic, rousing material like "Mhysa" or "Mother of Dragons". Instead, it's filled with despair, melancholy, adrenaline and horror - one can only guess if either "Oathkeeper" or "He Is Lost" will be played during THE event everyone desperately wants to see (for those who know what I'm talking about, yes, I mean "LS"). The trademark of the show's music - low-playing chello - is literally omnipresent here.
It's a shame that some good cues didn't make it to the soundtrack, like for example the great cue playing at the end of this year's first episode, which combines "The Kingsroad" theme with "Valar Morghulis". Oberyn's theme is also missing, but I guess this is because it will be further developed in Season 5, which will spend a lot of time in Dorne.
My final verdict for now is 7/10 after first couple of listens, but I imagine it will only get better from now on.

Can't wait for that ! :)

Lambegue2014-04-15 13:19:32
Me neither ! At each season, Djawadi's music is getting better.

Jon Snow2014-04-15 15:03:32
Great.. Cannot wait!!
I wish this time they make the release much longer, we need to hear more music from season 04.

Evenstar2014-04-15 15:37:46
Djawadi did some really nice work on GoT. Can't wait!

Macejko2014-04-15 15:53:33
This goes without saying, but Ramin is a genius and I want to hear this so badly...

Rob2014-04-17 12:50:12

Been checking online every day for a tracklist. I'm guessing they're waiting until after next week's big episode or the finale to release it, so as not to spoil any upcoming events or outcomes. Just hoping this release is longer and more comprehensive than last season's soundtrack.© 2001-2017 OST
