Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did it
Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.

where can I get this expanded OST?


JohnF2017-08-05 22:54:19
Surprised no one has commented here about the fact a label is releasing this score for the first time only on lp. Anyone know if this will get a release on cd??


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-06 00:08:32
Don't you think it's a little fishy that a label is releasing exactly the content of a bootleg with a tracklist I literally made myself 5 years ago, with the exact same cues missing ?

I wonder what's the story behind this... lol

Too bad they aren't using my terrible cover lol :P

I'm not an expert on exclusive rights, but I'm pretty sure that you can't just download some expanded score from the internet and publish it and sell it like it's yours. I mean when I got score from Rain Man I was so happy, until I started to play it. The quality was so bad, it was barely listenable. Then I started to search why is that and found out they didn't get the rights and (still) published some barely listenable bootleg of the score they found on the internet. Now this looks like exactly the same case, except that they found the bootleg in good quality. Ridiculous.

As for Perseverance's Rain Man, they did get the rights (as far as I know ... there was some other score there were some rights issues with, but can't remember exactly now ... think it was some John Barry score or something), but no masters was found at the studio (supossedly anyway), but they had gotten the impression that Zimmer himself would help with a master, but when that didn't happen, they decided to go for it with the material they could get a hold of. Wether it was a good choice or not ($ - wise) I don't know, but while they could have gotten all the thousands ! of $ they had spent on it back, they might not have, so... it's not like if you buy something, and then get a refund by sending it back ... a bit more complicated I guess


Per2018-01-15 18:59:36
As a side note, where the source of the material comes from, doesn't matter. Those who release the music license the recorded music, not the mp3/flac files hat circulate (sort of).

And in many cases the material circulating on the internet is from the same (or just as good a) source (certainly for scores from the last 15-20 or so years) as whatever they use as source for the official releases.

And, as mentioned before by Hybrid, while it do look "suspicious" when something that gets an official release is more or less the exact same as what's circulating on the net, in general, I'd rather have the people doing a release, do a good enough reserach, so that they acknowledge (not necessarily by mentioning it in words, or by, in this case, release the exact same content) the unofficial material by including all they can, to more or less make any unofficial versions uninteresting.
