Wow, the sound on this is hurtful to my ears. the highs and mids are crazily painful and hardly anything at the bottom. very disappointed with LLL

Haven't listened to this one with headphones yet but at first listen I don't hear anything wrong with it. But I must admit I'm not a major audiophile, so what do I know.
Well they didn't kick anyone's ass with the mastering...
The 1997 OST was a lot more violent (and suitable for this kind of score)... They played it weak here (they even made the 1997 OST selection softer here)...
The only thing I don't like about this is that some parts are way more silent than I'd like them to be. I find myself adjusting the volume constantly while listening to this.
Which is exactly the definition of a not great mastering... lol
I haven't listened to the new release yet but is the sound still better than the boot?
Actually, dynamic range is a good thing, Hybrid.
Dynamic range is definitely a good thing, but only when it enhances the music. But this one has such a high dynamic range that one has to keep a finger on volume control, or risk missing out certain portions. That, m'friend, is BAD remastering.
P.S. I've listened to only 4-5 tracks and I already HATE it.
It's a good thing for an orchestral score like Kingdom of Heaven...
For Peacemaker, not so much...
@hybrid Exactly!! For the peacemaker, because it's mainly synthetic (not to sure if it is completely) it's like volume was intentionally dropped and peaked during post recording to try and give more of a dynamic sound for on screen purposes. I've noticed a few scores like that too from zimmer, crimson tide for one comes into mind.

Oh La-La Land...I love you, but it seems like your trend of pointlessly combining separate cues into lengthier ones shows no sign of abating. :/
It's great to have all this material remastered, restored and dressed in an official package/disc.
However, I was wondering what happened to the unused cues of Peacemaker? There is a rumour that some composers block(ed) various scores from receiving an official expanded release. Do you think that something like that happened in this case? LaLaLand must have known that there was an unofficial release with unused cues. I was expecting surprises from this (such as previously unreleased material etc), but so far I don't see anything big. It looks more in the style of Broken Arrow and Speed 2. That is to say, on the one hand they were official expanded releases, but on the other hand there had been more material available (on promo releases, et al) that wasn't include for some reason.
What are you talking about ? The fake thing floating around for a decade ? lol
Ya dat thing. Was it phoney?? In any case, where iz da previouzly unrealeazed material??
hey there, just wanted to to clear this up, i remastered a few of the tracks from peacemaker just for fun, and added some extra sounds i created on my synthesizer, i named it the unused cues which is where those tracks came from, hope this helps
And people were naive enough to believe it, especially 10 years ago...
What fake thing are we referring to?
And yes, Edmund, my first thought was exactly the same.
Excellent! Not that we have clarified this up, I think we can go on with our lives. Cheers!!!
The thematic material that appears on the events that take place in Sarajevo somehow reminds me ideas by Ippolitov-Ivanov featured in his orchestral suite Caucasian Sketches. Search on youtube for Ippolitov-Ivanov "In a Village" (the 2nd movement of the suite) www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pqperR8R4g
10 or 15 years ago, there was a "Peacemaker - unused cues" bootleg album floating around. I think they refer to this. And yes, it was a bunch of bootleg cues edited together with some synth and drums added on top of it. There was no "real" new music from Hans' studio at all.
More tracks = more money. So they end up compromising by way of combining the cues together. I hate this, because it's never sounded seamless, but I have to accept it because it's the only way these thing could be released legitimately
Number of tracks has nothing to do with it. More music=more money, if anything, but having split tracks wouldn't make it more expensive.
Regarding cues such as Dusan's Confession, Dusan's Village, Dusan's speech, the thematic material somehow bears an interesting resemblance to ideas by Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov featured in his orchestral suite Caucasian Sketches ("In a Village" the 2nd movement of the suite). Am I the only one who has noticed this?
In addition, Trains (album version) or Hijack have moments that remind a little bit Sergei Prokofiev's "Tylbat's Death" from Romeo and Juliet.
Did Zimmer actually wrote everything except ''Devoe's Revenge'' and the trailer music?
That's ironic considering "Devoe's Revenge" is the one cue we know is cowritten by Gavin Greenaway.
It's nothing ironic, mate... I checked the booklet, it said ''All Songs Written by Hans Zimmer Except "Devoe's Revenge" Written by Gavin Greenaway & "The Peacemaker Trailer Music" Written by Harry Gregson-Williams'', so I asked myself: Is it true? Whatever.
Oh, sorry! I somehow managed to read your comment the wrong way around. Silly me... :p
This is going to be very interesting, nonetheless! Hopefully, LaLaLand will release more stuff from the Media Ventures gang of the '90s before long.

LaLaLand has already released quite some quality stuff from the 90's (Mancina's Bad Boys, Money Train and Speed scores, Zimmer's Broken Arrow and Days of Thunder). But there are still a few I like so released (Fair Game, Assassins) or expanded (The Fan, The Rock)
Next up please, The Fan, The Fan, The Fan!!!
I'm really surprised how many, uh, fans The Fan has. I know that apparently the album isn't a good representative of the score, but still - I didn't think what's there is really much good. I'm much more excited about The Peacemaker (even though I've already heard it :p )
I'm really excited about this one too
trent easton navarro
Like I said in an other thread, for me The Fan is the perfect combination between Hans Zimmer and NIN. Considering you don't like Trent Reznor, I'm not surprised you don't really care for The Fan.
As for this one, can't wait to own it! One of my fave Zimmer scores and of his finest action scores.
