I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?
Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :pI hope there will be an album for Angel Has Fallen by 	David Buckley.PM me on YouTube for further questions.

Is this cd of the complete score available for purchase somewhere?


Knight2019-01-19 22:38:10
As everyone has said for the billionth time, NO. These are all unofficial fan-made edits or rips.

Which version of "Epilogue" do you guys like better? The film version with the Zimmer-ified "Deliver Us" theme, or the version from the expanded album that uses the "Egypt" theme? I love both, personally.


Mike2018-09-01 01:09:24
Film version with Zimmer-ified “Deliver Us”, vocals from Miriam’s Song, horns and Ofra Haza’s vocals from “Deliver Us”

Thank you! I've wanted these forever!


Mike2015-01-08 00:26:18
Where Stephen Schwartz is credited, it's because it contains some of his song material, but Zimmer did the cue, right?


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-08 11:42:03
Yeah there are quotes of the songs but Schwartz only did the songs...

But credit is due... :)


NM2015-01-08 22:29:13
Haha, the ones I guessed were HGW were spot on. I have no idea how I was able to tell.


mittens2018-01-08 01:31:23
Regarding these songs where HZ is also listed (besides Stephen Schwartz), is he listed as composer or producer? Because on this list https://vgmdb.net/album/38986 he is mostly credited as producer...

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 1 || 2017-03-25 21:18:05
So I just picked up the Collector's Edition CD that was released (the one with the 3 extra cues), and i have to say, I'm glad I did. Having the Chariot Race and Epilogue (alternate version, granted) really rounds out the main CD. Those were two highlights. Having "Moses Reviled" is also good, as that was a strong cue (called "It is Only the Beginning" on the CD). The whole score has essentially been released when you put the main CD and the collector's one together (though sadly, the film version of the Epilogue isn't here).

I got the thing for $3.00. I was inspired to look into it due to a comment about it below.


Mike (OTM)2017-03-25 21:24:40
Not to double post, but can I just say that both versions of the Finale - the one using Hans' theme and the one using the Deliver Us theme - are really, really epic? Zimmer outdid himself with this segment particularly. The Prince of Egypt is a truly underrated score.

Okay. Listen to Hero from 13 Hours, then Burning Bush...


Waymann2016-07-06 08:38:47
I knew it. When I saw 13 Hours I kept thinking about another score that sounded just like that theme.


Mike2016-07-06 17:12:02
Yikes! Temp track? Well, Hans was producer on 13 Hours... Maybe that was his suggestion. :P


Mike2016-07-06 17:15:02
The similarity I caught while watching the film was the "Deshi Deshi Basara" percussion in "Welcome to Benghazi." It sounds like Zimmer-temp (or Zimmer suggestions?) was used in a couple places.

WOW!!! That is shameless!

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2017-03-19 22:30:51
The Collector's Edition contains "Moses Reviled," along with "Chariot Race" and Zimmer's original Epilogue as one track, is that correct?

Mike reply Replies: 6 || 2016-07-04 20:27:10
Interesting little thing... If you listen to the director commentary on the film, they say that Hans' original idea for the Burning Bush sequence had "choir and organ and stuff," but they asked for a re-write because that was stereotypical and they wanted something different for the scene. I love the final version, too, but I can't help wanting to know what the original sounded like.


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-04 21:12:50
Stay from Interstellar ?! :P


Mike2016-07-04 22:37:01
Quite possibly. Has Hans done any interviews for this score? I haven't found any.

Also a little interesting was that the directors mentioned Harry Gregson-Williams by name with regard to the "Line in the Sand" cue. As Rameses opens his eyes while holding the ring, one of them talks about how it was "scary" and "that was Harry Gregson-Williams' idea." :P


anonymous2016-07-04 22:58:47
on a somewhat related page... zimmer produced the first use of "all i ever wanted" sung by moses, and harry did the queen's reprise, right? or did harry do both?


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-04 23:39:34
Yep !

To be complete on POE, on the cuesheet HGW & RGW get 100% on the following cues :

HGW :
Hieroglyphic Nightmare (with Schwartz)
Moses Finds Cave
Line In The Sand

RGW :
Meeting Tzipporah
Camel Boogie
Meeting Pharaoh

Klaus got 0, lol, did some arranging...

Up until the early 2000s, HZ used to give 100% of some of the cues to additionals even when it used some of his music. But then all the rest of the cues were credited to HZ only while some were arranged by these guys... So I guess nowadays way of doing is not so bad...


Mike2016-07-05 00:11:29
Here's something I've wondered:

Do Hans' additional guys do substantially more than they did in the 90's / 2000's, or is it really a matter of crediting differently like your comment suggests? Cause it seems like Zimmer had a lot more "solo" credits on his scores back then (70% of cues, typically), whereas now he'll have only 2 or 3 on a given score. So did Hans' methodology change at some point and now he's more collaborative than he used to be, or is it mostly that now he credits "arrangers" and he didn't used to?


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-05 00:19:22
Well, I don't think it's much different, in proportion it's the same thing...

Remember in the 90s he had to do scores quite short, even big action films were 90 min long...

Now when you have an Inception, POTC or whatever, it's always between 2 & 2,5 hours of music to write... And relatively less time to write them ! lol

Anonymous reply Replies: 9 || 2014-12-06 16:08:19
Zimmer made Such. An Epic. Arrangement. of Deliver Us for that last scene. My goodness. It gets me every time.


Mike2014-12-06 16:15:53
This is a sadly under-spoken-about score. It's probably one of my favorite Zimmer scores of the 1990s, and it uses his big, epic sound to really good effect. It just manages to complement the film really well, and it even has a nice Eastern flair sometimes.


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-06 23:43:12
This is something like my third-favorite Zimmer score. I don't think he ever quite managed to go as grandiose and BIG as this again, not even in Gladiator.

On a vaguely related note, wouldn't it have been hilarious if Ridley Scott had decided to reunite with Hans on Exodus: Gods and Kings of all things? :p


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-06 23:53:55
I would have loved to... :(


Adam2014-12-07 00:13:20
I would have loved that as well :(

Hey Hybrid, do you know why Ridley & Hans stopped working together? They were partners since Thelma & Louise. I mess their collaborations :'(


Ds2014-12-07 00:40:10
Edmund, I think PotC 3 and King Arthur are even BIGGER than this one :-)


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-07 02:08:36
Funny that you mention those two, Ds, they're my other two favorite Zimmer scores. ;)

Yeah, they're both pretty massive, but more in an action-score kind of way. I don't think King Arthur in particular hits quite the same grandly religious heights as Prince of Egypt. For overall size At World's End wins everything, though.


NM2014-12-07 09:07:50
Nice to see some appreciation for this score. I really love it.


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-07 09:10:39
Hans & Ridley isn't gonna happen ever again. They keep talking about each other a lot in interviews & stuff, they are still in contact, phoning or dining from time to time...

But the look on Hans' face when I asked him said it all... He just said they were "out of synch"...

The theme for the two brothers is heartbreaking, I wish this score got more attention. There's some really great thematic writing.
