You guys are hilarious.and that means, tom did the perfect job. they wanted a shitty score and tom delivered. i am sure they would have fired desplat, williams or whoever, just because they would have failed. the task was to compose a shitty score and tom did that. their problem, if nobody buys the soundtrack album or avoid to see the film, just because of a bad filmscore. for us it is great, because we save money.The fact that the directors insisted on a shitty score doesn't absolve the score from being shitty.Go to JXL's Youtube channel and watch his latest video. He talks about the process of scoring the film. If you have a problem with the score, direct your criticism and complains at the director/producers/studio because JXL delivered the score they wanted. They wanted to stay away from themes and wanted an a very alternative score. If Tom didn't deliver that, they would've found someone else who would've done the job and you'll still complain that it doesn't sound how you wanted lol. <br><br>I've heard a couple of tracks which I liked a lot. <br><br>Stretcher Carry is avaibale on soundcloud. It' merely recreation but it's awesome almost like film version.
How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lolOlive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!
@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.
Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)

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

Bondo2017-08-06 01:34:50
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

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. 2001-2017 OST
