One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGN
I guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.
Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time lately
Ok, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for it

I really like the "Our World" cue from the FYC promo. Sounds almost heavenly.

... reply Replies: 6 || 2014-11-26 12:53:41
Is it just me or does the track decoding the message from the complete (which is the same cue as Dust from the OST) have more orchestra than the OST version.. It's probably not a different take, but just some mixing but still I like it!

theeaglesfan005 2014-11-26 15:44:18
Yes... the FYC versions are a little different.

Stay is different from the album version (which is as far as I got into the FYC on my way to work this morning)

Medigo2014-11-26 15:54:05
it seems mostly with the Mixing yeah
Some instruments are louder on the album

badbu2014-11-26 15:55:03
The Stay version is much better on the FYC :)

Medigo2014-11-26 16:02:57
I cant remember anymore

is the FYAC version closer to the movie?
Was the beginning of 'Dreami of the Crash' tracked unto the album track?

theeaglesfan005 2014-11-26 16:20:37
The album version of Stay has the really loud organs (similar to dreaming of the crash at the beginning).

FYC doesn't and the ending has some extra strings? added in

Medigo2014-11-26 17:11:57
the ending is shorter, almost like it was cut short
the strings are a bit louder too yeah

So the last track from the FYC seems to be missing...can easily be added from the OST though! Any idea about what slate that last track might have?

The last track in the movie is "Where We're Going".

Medigo2014-11-26 09:36:48
That plays right after 'Quantifiable Connection'

also that track (which contains the piano piece everyone wanted) is apparently damaged

I know the chronological order thing has been beaten to death, but for those willing to engage in some SPOILER TALK ... what tracks play where? Some are obvious, some not. I'd love to have my memory refreshed for some of them.

JDollars2014-11-25 01:06:38
There is an order waaaay down the thread that seems to be pretty accurate.

Ds2014-11-25 01:08:56
Good idea, here's my take! Feel free to fill the blanks :-)

Dream Of The Crash -- logos and Cooper's nightmare
Cornfield Chase -- drone chase through the field until abrupt stop before the sea/lake
Flying Drone -- Coop brings the drone to the ground
Dust -- Coop & Murphy's journey to NASA
Day One -- ?
Stay -- Most moving scene of the decade
Message From Home -- First video message from Dr Brand
The Wormhole -- Obvious
Atmospheric Entry -- Flight from Endurance to Miller's planet?
Mountains -- Giant wave
Afraid Of Time -- ?
A Place Among The Stars -- ?
Running Out -- ?
No Need To Come Back -- Dr Brand's lie?
I'm Going Home -- Coop knows about Dr Brand's lies and says he's getting back to Earth
Coward -- Expedition with Dr Mann + Murph's investigation on Earth
Imperfect Lock -- Dr Mann tries to dock on Endurance
No Time For Caution -- Freaking ridiculously amazing docking scene
Detach -- Black hole ride + Coop's sacrifice
S.T.A.Y. -- The Tesseract
What Happens Now? -- The Tesseract closes, Cooper's back in space
Where We're Going -- Ending: Coop wakes up, meets old Murph, goes find Brand

Mike2014-11-25 01:58:30
Looks correct, Ds, and I can add (again, BEWARE SPOILERS, people):

I think "Day One" is when the big door opens and Dr. Brand reveals the space Cooper (so after "Dust"). And then I'm nearly certain "A Place Among the Stars" plays as Murph reveals the truth about the mission in the video message (I very specifically remember how unsettling that music was in the theater!).

Then I THINK "Running Out" might have been the beginning of Cooper and Dr. Mann's skirmish, but I can't recall for sure.

Mike2014-11-25 02:07:44
EDIT, you're right, I think "No Need to Come Back" is the "lie" cue. I hadn't seen that you put that there. And now that I think of it, that eerie cue was used twice, so I don't remember where the "Place Among the Stars" track would go.

tounka2014-11-25 03:54:45
"Afraid Of Time" is when we saw 33 year old Murph (Jessica Chastain) at first time on Earth and then talk to Dr.Brand after that.

tounka2014-11-25 06:02:27
I'm not sure about "A Place Among The Stars" and "No Need To Come Back" It's seem to be a same track where Dr. Brand reveal a lie and Murph send a message to Brand and Coop (and then they're going to Dr.Mann Planet)

and I think "I'm Going Home" is when Endurance spinning at first time, yes it's not make sense with title track name.

zoe_jane2014-11-25 06:08:52
I saw it again recently. (Spoilers next...)
"I'm going home" played twice, this was the music during the scene when they started spinning with the Endurance the first time to achieve gravity, just before they left for Saturn, and then it played again when they left to secure the sites for the labs on the ice planet. Mike is correct, Day One is when they reveal to Cooper that they are NASA and open the hangar doors. I think No Need To Come back plays when Dr. Brand dies, and A Place Among The Stars when Mann explains to the others, that there was no plan A. And Atmospheric Entry actually played during the scene when they first woke up Dr. Mann from hibernation:)

Anonymous2014-11-25 09:36:58
Atmospheric entry (also?) plays when they visit the first planet

Running Out is when the scene moves back to earth and Murph after the 'Place Among the Stars' but before 'Going Home'

Zoey2014-11-26 09:55:31
"Atmospheric entry" really bothers me for a long time :-P

Zoey2014-11-26 10:21:16
ps. I think "Atmospheric entry" plays when they visit Mann's planet, but not sure.

Medigo2014-11-26 10:34:38
No Manns Planet entry is the end of "no need to come back"

You can barely hear music during the scene, but the atmospheric entry goes with Miller Planet

Absolutely loving this score. Can't stop listening to it.

There's so much more here than the much-debated "No Time for Caution" - but dang, totally obsessed with that for sure ;) Thank you to Hybrid - all the complaining in the world should never take away from how much raw enjoyment this music has given to myself and others. Cheers.

Alex reply Replies: 9 || 2014-11-24 13:09:01
Thank you for the newly released additional track. As for the complaints of it not being the same version from within the film, I'm pretty sure I know what it is. Hans Zimmer spoke of his tracks he recorded himself using his computer and synthesizers/instruments, before taking his compositions to England and fleshing out a full orchestral arrangement for recording. This released track is that pre-orchestral version of the track made in his studio, before the full symphonic glory that thrilled us in the theater. So hopefully at some point we will be able to obtain the full orchestral version but for now this will have to do I suppose. :)

theeaglesfan005 2014-11-24 14:10:39
Yep... a demo more or less

Just like the leaked On Stranger Tides demos... they are really close to the final product... about 90-95% of the film version

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-24 15:40:37
Except this is definitely not a demo... The mastering was not great (just like the Inception bonus tracks, which were much too loud compared to the OST), but it's not a "mock up"...

Yen2014-11-24 17:47:28
It's similar enough now,but what's the problem with the quality?
Sounds like 128kbps mp3 or even lower......

Anonymous2014-11-24 18:23:53
No offense but it sure does sound like a demo tho, which is surprising if it really is the final version that he made.

Hans his leaked sessions usually sound more "dry" then album releases anyway.

I don't know if you'll see this Hybrid, but as someone who hasn't kept up with all this soundtrack controversy, but covered all releases of the Interstellar soundtrack, I am extremely grateful for your efforts, for any new music from or made for this movie released to listen to. Each new piece is valued to a great extent given I know how much can be left wanted from Zimmer's usual scores. So I thank you and hope that the selfishness of the many on here doesn't stop you from assisting in the future in squeezing any more brilliant music from Hans Zimmer for those of us who quietly value whatever there is to enjoy.

Kurt2014-11-25 15:44:19
I'm pretty upset with the song. I was extremly happy that iTunes reached out to me notifiying me about it but what I don't like is that the songs volume sees to be much lower than the rest of the album. Also, the album name changed therefor I now have two albums in my iTunes collection. One with all but that one song and another with only that song in it. I'm assuming because they changed the name of the album.

Edmund Meinerts2014-11-26 00:22:25
Kurt, you DO realize you can change the album names to make them match in iTunes, right?

Does anyone else feel that Interstellar really could use a huge, epic main theme of sorts to anchor all the rest of the music and the lesser thematic development together? It's a good score as is but it just seems that something is missing.

Anonymous2014-11-25 23:12:44
it does have a main theme its called day one

Mike2014-11-25 23:16:06
It may not be "huge and epic" (though it is at some points), but there is indeed a main theme, present in most of the tracks! :P

Anonymous2014-11-25 23:19:46
Yay, finally another person sort of feels how I feel about the score. Beware JLR, you are about to be attacked by everyone here (except me) for daring to ask that question. I found out the hard way there's simply no tolerance for a dissenting opinion on this website.

JLR2014-11-25 23:26:59
Yeah, I know "Day One" is the main basic theme but I was hoping for that huge typical Hans Zimmer driving power theme on the level of "Molossus" from Batman Begins. Not exactly that of course, but something along that lines would have been cool during the launch sequence and at other key parts of the film. Just my thoughts.

MacArthur2014-11-25 23:45:59
As I also found out.

NM2014-11-26 00:09:51
Erm, the launch sequence had pretty much the big grand theme. Maybe they could've utilised it a bit more?

Anonymous2014-11-26 00:12:52
MacCarthur, You'd think we were personally insulting the people on this forum when we criticized something that HZ did. Good grief.

JLR, I fully agree that Interstellar needs something more. I was just listening to songs like "Woad to Ruin" from King Arthur, "Hummel Gets The Rockets" from "The Rock", "Sarajevo" from "The Peacemaker" and "Roll Tide" from "Crimson Tide" and there are some really epic moments in those pieces and I would have liked to see something similar in Interstellar. Oh well, I guess if you like atmospheric scores with a lot of windy sounds in them, then you'd like Interstellar.

Mike2014-11-26 00:15:09
I actually appreciated that Zimmer really went out of his "established zone" for this score (which, for better or worse, it seems, includes those "big and grand" thematic moments). One of the things I liked was how truly "different" the approach was here.

Edmund Meinerts2014-11-26 00:21:31
JLR, it's kind of funny to me that you ask for a "driving power theme" and then use Molossus, of all things, as an example. That cue doesn't strike me as strongly thematic at all (sure, there's themes in there, but they aren't of the big huge A THEME IS PLAYING NOW variety that you get from a 90s MV score). "Like a Dog Chasing Cars" would be a better Batman example. "Roll Tide" is perhaps the ultimate Zimmer example.

However, I'm not so sure a big macho power theme like that would have fit Interstellar.

Also, Anonymous, quit it it with the persecution complex. Nobody had a problem with your opinion - just the way you presented it.

JLR2014-11-26 00:22:33
Mike, I hear what your saying. However, I think that Hans has now invented a new "established zone" as of late with his past several scores. I don't mind his new style but I don't think it comes anywhere close to his scores of the past and I hope he gets back to that sound again (at least once in a while). I agree with Anonymous about the type of scoring that was truly the Hans Zimmer I knew and loved. I still love the guy, don't get me wrong, I just know he is capable of so much more.

JLR2014-11-26 00:27:50
Edmund M, maybe Molossus wasn't the best example but I was just referring to the power of it I guess, it gives me goosebumps. Anonymous provided some pretty good examples of the sound I'm talking about. Oh well, it is good fodder for conversation anyway.

Mike2014-11-26 00:32:46
Well, JLR, even his more "modern" stuff has had several "pure Zimmer action (or grandiose)" moments, like Time at the end of Inception, the prison escape and final scenes from TDKR, or the "Flight" cue from Man of Steel...My point was, Interstellar sounds nothing like any of that, really. There's not very much of Zimmer's "signature sounds" in here, while his other recent stuff has still had it to a notable extent.

Still, I agree, I do miss the Zimmer sound of old that defined movies like Crimson Tide, King Arthur, The Last Samurai, and I would love to see him make a strong return to that some time. Man of Steel KIND OF did that, but it was a throughly "Nolan-influenced" score, as far as a simple and restrained repeating motif, rather than a big and grand theme (except until the ending of the movie and in the "Flight" scene).

JLR2014-11-26 00:47:24
Mike, yeah I get that and I agree with you. It's nice that he ventures out into different experimental territories, lets just hope he ventures back in to that truly "signature sound" of his again soon.

Megalith2014-11-26 00:47:48
Um, do you guys even realize what kind of film Interstellar is? Guys, why isn't there a power ballad in Bambi!?!?!?

JLR2014-11-26 01:03:21
Megalith, well I certainly wouldn't compare Interstellar with Bambi by any stretch of the imagination but it seems that an epic Christopher Nolan movie about man journeying out into space to worlds unknown with worm holes and time travel, etc., might just deserve more power music than Bambi would. Just saying. Even the Star Trek movies had some nice power themes over the years.

Guitwo2014-11-26 01:34:43
Does it serve a purpose to have a power theme in a movie like that? Humanity and/or love are the big characters in this movie. It's not only about a Man.

JLR2014-11-26 02:03:01
Well it's such an epic sort of movie that I felt it needed more of an epic sort of a theme. I not talking about a super hero theme for one person, but more of a sweeping saga sort of a theme to represent mankind's struggle to conquer space I guess. I could picture something like the opening theme music to Gladiator, that sort of feel.

Joey2014-11-26 02:18:16
JLR, I think I know why you feel that way. Because it is so different from Hans' other scores. Usually he writes huge epic pieces with heavy in-your-face percussion. So it would make sense that you would expect that from this one.
But the whole approach to Interstellar was intentionally smaller scale from a musical standpoint.
Christopher Nolan wanted the music to reflect the basic them of the movie, which was a story about a father's love for his daughter. In fact Hans Zimmer didn't even know he was writing music for a space movie when he originally wrote the main music for the movie. All he knew was that it was about a parent's love for their child.

theeaglesfan005 2014-11-26 02:34:41
Um... we have had the main theme since December of last year... and it's called First Step

Everything you need to know about the film is in the teaser trailer

Perrinzki2014-11-26 03:11:24
I think I see where you're coming from. Hans said that the main theme has a kind of "never ending" quality to it (and it does, the main melody never resolves to the fundamental key), but I think he could have crafted a more interesting melody than a wavering line on the Am key. Don't get me wrong: what's around this simplistic line is actually very interesting, like the beating E key (the one that is head at the beginning of "Day One"), among other elements of the theme. How many of you would have liked to hear a rousing, inspiring melody over the great crescendo at the end of "Where We're Going"?; what we got sounds, to me at least, like this finale (all of the main theme, for that matter) could have used a great melody over it, instead of just the ascending chords and organ arpeggios.

JLR2014-11-26 04:07:17
Perrinzki, I do believe you have nailed it exactly. That is indeed what is needed. It just has that incomplete feeling the way it is. Thanks for putting in writing what I was trying to express.

Ports2014-11-26 04:17:11
Maybe he has it on the super duper deluxe light saber edition coming and Nolan decided not to use it in the film. We will have to wait and see. ...then the outrage.

I'm joking of course, please don't hate. I really love this score the more I listen and really am interested to hear the " extra music" on the unreleased set.

Mr. Zimmer. I have enjoyed Interstellar´s soundtrack very much; however, I have missed the theme that sounds during the docking scene. Is it going to be an extended edition which will include this song? I believe I´m not the only one who was expecting to enjoy this particular song in the soundtrack. My congratulations, Mr. Zimmer.

Anonymous2014-11-21 17:59:28
Its the exact same theme that is overused through the entire boring score. You're not missing anything

Anonymous has a point, if a person is allowed to express their opinions on how amazing the score is then others must be allowed to express their distaste for it.
With this being said, however, I thought Hans' score was an objectively beautiful piece of art. I just think it is sad that someone cannot feel the depth of the emotion of this score. Hans' heart is clearly laid bare in this music and it has touched me deeply as well. This is truly a unique and bold venture away from his usual in your face heavy percussion scores (which I also love). But that is why it is so fitting for this film, because it is such a unique and intimately human story.

_TARS_2014-11-21 21:03:15
Anonymous, we get it, you don't like the score, fine, that's YOUR opinion. So why are you hanging around here then? Please do everyone a huge favor and scram. You aren't adding any value.

Edmund Meinerts2014-11-21 22:12:14
@Anonymous - you're certainly entitled to your opinion but I think people would take you more seriously if you expanded on it it a bit rather than slinging negatives. Especially unsubstantiated ones - there's way more than just one theme in Interstellar. Explain a bit more why you don't like the score and you'd be adding something meaningful to the discussion, like TARS said.

@bro - There's a difference between being a "loyal fan" and just blindly liking everything with the Zimmer name on it.

@James - at this stage I'd rather you kill yourself than Anonymous, but can't we just leave off with the killing entirely?

@Joey - I don't think there's a such thing as an "objectively beautiful piece of art". If there is, Interstellar certainly isn't it*, because if it was objectively beautiful we wouldn't be having this discussion with Anonymous, would we? ;)

*I happen to agree with you. I personally enjoy Lone Ranger more (since my taste in scores is more on the "fun" side), but I think Interstellar is Zimmer's most accomplished work probably since Angels & Demons.

JOEY and EDMUND, at least you guys are the voices of logic and reason on this forum. Edmund, I have listened to IS over and over and simply can't get beyond the fact there is too much "ambient" breathy background music. At least 75% of the score is non thematic ambient music. The main theme is pretty but a very simple 4 note ascending progression that never materializes into anything more than that (in my opinion). I also totally agree with your statement that being a "loyal fan" does not mean you have to be a mind-numbed drone who likes everything HZ does. I happen to like about 90% of his scores, am I not a "loyal fan" then?

TARS, so what is this a dictatorship here? Someone who disagrees should "scram"? Thanks for that valuable insight.

JAMES, Kill myself? Really? Chill out dude, it's called an opinion, I deserve to die for that? Wow, I'm learning a lot about the kinds of people that frequent this forum and it ain't pretty.

Oh I didnt mind your last post
but the one(s?) before that seemed just like you dont like people liking this score at all

and to answer the question, I found MOS pretty samey and ASM2 wasnt too standout either

I like this score and I dont feel like most of it is background music, there are clear multiple themes running through it without getting too loud and in your face at all time

Anonymous2014-11-21 23:24:46

I understand that Velarion. I was not really "whining" about it... just voicing my opinion that's all.

As a fan of soundtracks (its not really mainstream) I'm used to people not liking the same things as myself, so Anonymous's comment doesn't really bother me - what does bother me is people being baited into justifying why they like something.

EDMUND MEINERT I hear what you're saying. It is hard to say something is objectively beautiful cause we all have different opinions. You may not believe that, but you at least have to admit that there is music/art that is objectively well-done. The Interstellar soundtrack, I believe, is objectively well-done. You can acknowledge that it is well-done and still not personally like it.

Am I the only one who remembers that "Time" on the commercial release of Inception wasn't even the version from the movie? I don't hear people bitching about THAT...The release for "Time" was missing the little guitar riffs after he says, "Welcome home, Mr. Cobb."

We got like ten different "Complete Score" rips once the movie was out on bluray. I REALLY don't see why everyone is so pissed off THIS time.


SOMEONE will rip it and it'll be fantastic, just like every other god damn "Complete Score" we all have. This REALLY isn't worth burning a bridge over, guys.

Hybrid helped get us a release that we weren't even going to get in the FIRST place. If you're pissed about that, don't take it out on Hybrid!?

It's not like he was sitting beside Hans wearing a hooded robe, steepling his fingers like, "Good...Good..and now we will ROB them of their PRECIOUS TRACK!"

He wants the track as much as we do! And quite frankly, the fact that Zimmer responded by releasing ANYTHING is amazing!

We should be celebrating SOME form of a "win", even if it isn't EXACTLY what we wanted.

This shit of releasing half the score or variations on tracks we all want has been going on for YEARS. I don't know why this time, THIS particular time, everyone is playing 'babe-in-the-woods' like, "Oh my god! It's missing! The track isn't on there!"

NO SHIT. It happens. And it sucks. But getting anything at all AFTER the release is a MAJOR ****ing WIN if you ask me.

We all have tracks we want that we either eventually got through rips or never got at all.

And you KNOW, you KNOW!!! That SOMEONE will rip the docking sequence in all it's glory a few months from now.

So stop acting like this is the FIRST TIME this has happened and somehow or another, the ONE GUY who COULD do something to help out the community, is the one we should burn at the stake.

Hybrid handled this shit amazingly. Why? Because he TRIED and we GOT SOMETHING. As opposed to NO RESPONSE AT ALL.

Where would we all be then? Better off? Really? "No Time for Caution" is THAT BAD that you would rather have NOTHING AT ALL?

That is all I'm seeing from a majority of these posts. The sentiment that a HANDFUL of people would rather have nothing at all than the track sans a few details.

That is ****ing retarded. The company owes us NOTHING. We paid and we got gypped. It's a risk we take EVERY YEAR. We buy scores KNOWING FULL WELL they might not have what we want on them.

So if you want to rip someone apart, blame the artist and label.

But this shit about what a "horrible person" HybridSoldier is is absolute disgusting and ridiculous.

The sense of entitlement on this board is through the ****ing ROOF.

Oh and by the way, I bought ALL THREE VERSIONS looking for the track when I just as easily could have pirated them and come straight here to start bitching about the missing track.

So before you start in with the, "we paid and we deserve blah blah blah", I AGREE WITH YOU!!!

The only difference is I'm not about to go HANG the ONLY GUY who offered a solution to our problem!!!

So for those of you who just read this and want to lay into me for not being as angry as you are, do me a favor and START by explaining to me why it's HYBRIDSOLDIER that we should be blaming.

Let's hear it. Come on. What was it exactly that HE did, that resulted in all of us not getting what we wanted?

He didn't mix the film. He didn't write the music. He didn't RELEASE the music. He didn't choose the tracks.

The list of how your anger has NOTHING TO DO with Hybrid could fill up post after post after post.

You want to rage against someone? Start by raging against the people who actually ASSEMBLE the album and release it.

Not someone who is a FAN, JUST LIKE US, who is TRYING to help.

Jesus CHRIST are these boards disappointing. I have NEVER seen this kind of entitlement DROWN a board before. NEVER.

bro2014-11-24 23:57:35
The thing that happened was that Hans Zimmer's public image, demand, and overall popularity grew exponentially -- there are now many many more voices the be heard and he's no longer just a film composer. He's a rock star, and this is only going to get worse the more popular he gets, and it will be harder for watertower or any other label to exclude certain tracks. Because each time it happens the crying and bitching will double

Ds2014-11-25 00:05:22
MacReady, you're being really stupid. The problem is not that it's "different". The problem is that it sounds just bad, I've never bought such a poorly sounding track on iTunes.

Imagine that Inception was realeased on 3 different editions, none of them containing "Time". At all. Imagine then that the fans were really pissed off, failing to understand why the hell "Time", the best piece of this movie, had been excluded from the official OST. Imagine then that Hans, in a kind mood, provided his fans a mock-up of "Time" in shitty quality, without any brass: just piano and strings. If we wanted more, we had to rip it from the blu-ray or mix our own version.

This is more like the present situation.

Like Hybrid said, the "battle" is over, great tracks are often missing from official releases, and that's it. We had a hope to get that extra piece, but we didn't. No problem, let's move on. But please don't compare the released version of "No Time For Caution" with "Time".

MacReady2014-11-25 00:27:59
The release just isn't that bad, man. You guys make it sound like he laid the track down in his garage using a microphone and screaming the melodies into a trash can. That's the kind of vehemence that's being thrown around this board.

And frankly, if they had never released "Time" at all? It STILL wouldn't be HybridSoldier's fault - which is really my main point.

If this board was aflame with people ONLY saying "screw you, Zimmer!" I'd complete get it.

The part that has me absolutely baffled is the treating the moderator like someone he's in on some big conspiracy to **** all the fans over.

That's all I'm saying. Place the hate where it belongs, if at all.

Personally I'm pretty used to the disappointment that comes with not getting all the tracks you want off your favorite scores.

I just live with it until some talented soul rips it later down the road.

This all kinda wreaks of faux outrage to me. The way so many people tell it on here, you'd swear Zimmer personally wrote each and every board contributor here a personal "**** you" and dropped it in their inbox.

It's just music, guys...I love it as much as the rest of you, but we'll live.

That and I'm waiting on the rip anyway because the music that plays when they first show Coop the X-Rays of the wormhole isn't on any of the releases, haha.

I get what you said pale. I agree. I'm thankful to hybrid a lot. He is moving mountains to get us a track.
But i must agree with ds as well. It´s not zimmer or hybrid problem at all but the master of the track is really really low. I have a great musician soundcard. It´s also a pre-amp for headphones. Normally with a well mastered track/album (just like interstellar is)i can go 3/5 of the sound level... With no Time for caution i have to go all the way up. I cañt listen to the track unless it´s very very quiet around me or incredibly lourd in my headphones. I cannot play the track when i'm outside. I don't have any problems with the track itself. I'm used to that remix/return/reorchestrate type of work and i have been telling people that you can't judge a score based on its album because it does not reflect the original score in the movie. I guess we will have a suite called docking suite, Mann suite or spinning suite or something that will last 20minutes and we will all be happy about it. And if we don't someone will come out with the entire score ripped from the movie itself.

Ds2014-11-25 00:50:14
Nobody said it was Hybrid's fault. Almost everybody was thankful to Hybrid for reaching Hans and telling him how disappointed we were.

The only critic against Hybrid was about the way he spoke to some people on this board. A lot of people got really upset for different reasons (Hybrid among them). But I can understand everyone of them, like, now I just got back home and am completely drunk and still writing on this board just because I'm a HZ junkie.

Anyway, yes I really think this demo sounds extremely bad and is definitely not of the high quality Hans usually produces. He puts so much care into how his music sound, that I still can't believe he sent that track to iTunes. But shit happens and life goes on! Amazing versions can be found everywhere on the net now, so this whole thing is going to calm down soon.

I've been watching this thread cloesly and I feel like there's been a lot of miscommunication. From whether the track should have been on the Soundtrack in the first place, to whether people are aware of how mixing happens on a film, this whole thing has lost it's focus.

The frustration here is that we all felt something profound and extraordinary when we saw this film, (more specifically, the docking sequence) and we aren't able to recapture that moment. The way we all experienced the music in that scene is unique. I don't think anyone refutes that.

But as fans, we all expected what we normally expected when purchasing a film score. We wanted the music that we heard and were moved by. And we've all been treated to mostly an honest system of how these scores are released. In this case, there was a departure from the norm. Thusly, I don't understand why some would be so quick to not understand the frustration. Yes, what's in the film and what's released varies but this situation is unique, due to the the vast difference in what was released versus what we heard. It's like if you heard Thriller on the radio and when you bought the tape, all you heard was vocals and synth, no base, horns, or backing.

First and foremost, mega props to Hybrid for being a real stand up individual for trying to get something moving on this. We are very fortunate to even be in a situation where we're all only 2 or 3 degrees from the man who wrote the damn thing.

However, we all must agree that we didn't get what was heard. You can go listen to the track that was released and then go see the movie and know that the 2 are different. This isn't difficult. It's factual. Plus, getting negative on people was ill advised. Not everyone here knows how the industry works, not everyone knows the minutiae of what it takes to mix something.

We're all fans here. We all wanted to get an amazing piece of music we were swept away with and, right now, we can't.

Hybrid, you done a real good service trying to help here. But look at it from our perspective. There's no bluff behind this problem. You and us all know it's not the same track. We're not making this up. So when we ask for "The Mess" thats because that's what grabbed us, moved us, impacted us. You know what else was a mess? Star Wars. And that did pretty ok.

We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible.
I'm sure we'll get the track as we all heard it somehow. But I firmly believe it didn't have to be like this.

Mortifer V.2014-11-23 12:04:10
Completely agree.

QRCode2014-11-23 18:34:22
@Kubrick, How do you reckon we are all "2 or 3 degrees away from" Hans Zimmer? Just because someone claims they have connections and influence with him, doesn't necessarily make it so. How do we know that HZ didn't just release the track on his own? Anyone can claim anything they want to make themselves feel important. People like that are typically middle-aged guys still living in some obsessed fantasy world in their parents basement munching on Doritos. Sound about right?

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-23 18:37:12

No, nevermind... lol

RealFfingMusic2014-11-23 18:46:56
I have this nagging suspicion that this score is getting far too much attention than it deserves.

That's as polite as I can be.

Shazard A.2014-11-23 19:35:01

Very well put sir. I want to experience that a moment again.

Kael2014-11-23 20:01:00
Absolutely agree. I grabbed the released track and without reading any of the reactions, listened to it last night and I remember thinking "did I get the right track!?!?" Not only did was it different than what I had fallen in love with, to me (And I agree this is likely very subjective and possibly accentuated by frustration) sounded way off and even not quite fitting with the rest of the soundtrack. So yes, very disappointed in that regard.

As someone who purchased the Illuminated version, I am now a bit scared of that purchase, and what will be included in it.

Furthermore, while I agree that Hybrid did what he could to help us, the way in which he has communicated recently is just as disappointing as the track was.

A shame that such an amazing work of art is marred by this completely unnecessary ordeal. Better communication would have eased some of this, even the things out of their control.

The net result is that as a customer, I am no longer confident in the purchase I made, and will likely affect future purchases.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-23 20:12:53
Kael, I don't owe anyone here anything, I communicate the way I want, I'm not here to make friends or to be liked, and I don't work for Hans (if he wants so he can tell me)...

If I want to send any of you to hell, I do, and I already explained many times why the track is not the film version. Now don't you people dare bullshitting me with the "I pay, I'm king, I get what I want"... We all paid MOS and didn't get Escape From Ship, we all paid Rush and didn't get Monza 1976, we all paid Sherlock Holmes and didn't get Meet Dredger, and I didn't see all these comments... There's no gun on your head, there are samples out, hell there is even the full OST on youtube the day of release. If it doesn't contain what you want, don't buy it.

Kael2014-11-23 20:38:22
Hybrid... you are missing some of my points, and underscoring what I said was wrong.

You have to understand that for someone on our side, whatever your arrangement with Hans is, or whatever your desire for that arrangement to be, you are essentially our connection and their voice. Whether you want it or not you represent him (we are after all in So yes, telling people to go to hell or worse is in my opinion about as unprofessional as you can get.

I never said that 'I paid, im king and i get what i want', because that's both ridiculous and unrealistic. But I am entitled to be disappointed in a product I paid for and voice my concerns. You are obviously entitled to your reaction and to disagreement, but realize that whether you want to or not, HOW you express it reflects on Hans.

It surprises me even more when what you have here is a section of people who rather than just downloading illegal versions of the soundtrack, spend their money and try to support the music they like, and we all know how rampart that is. I'm not excusing some of the 'dialogue' that has happened here from the consumer side of things (and I understand how it can be frustrating to you) but none of that excuses how this has gone down.

Don't forget that the people commenting here (not matter how shitty their comments might be, and even misguided, we are after all on the internet) they are still people who CHOSE to spend their money, when there are far easier alternatives. That doesn't mean "we are kings, we get what we want" it means at least try to treat us with respect and understand where we are coming from.

NM2014-11-23 20:59:15
"If we pay for it, we want it to be exactly what we expect."

How were they meant to know that people 'expected' to hear a tracked-in variation on cues that were already on the album? It seems a lot of people would've been happy to see 'Detatch' or 'A Place Among the Stars' sacrificed if it meant getting more of (what's closest in this score to) Zimmer's action material.

Funnily enough, paying for something does not entitle you to exactly what you want, it entitles you to what's on offer, and if you don't like it, then you don't buy it.

QRCode2014-11-23 21:58:50
@Hybrid, Err... no, never mind what? Did I strike a nerve?

@Kael, you are exactly right that we all have a right to be disappointed. I have a hard time believing that what "Hybrid" has to say truly reflects on Hans though. I think this guy is embellishing the truth about his alleged "connections" with Mr. Zimmer. Pretty pathetic to go though life trying to feed off of someone else's fame. Wow, I use a green font so everyone will think I'm important. Send us "to hell" if you want, are you kidding? Who the "hell" do you think you are?

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-23 22:07:36

Shazard A.2014-11-23 22:40:41
Whether this site is official or unofficial, I am shocked at Hybrid's unprofessional rhetoric. Some of the comments said here are uncalled for, but one shouldn't stoop to their level.

I came here to express m desire for the track I heard in the film, but it just doesn't my voice will be heard if its met with Hybrid's ear. If anyone has an idea or recommendation of what our next step should be, I'm all ears and will happily join you.

Let the arguments burn out, at the end of the day, we're all still going to want that one specific track from the film. I'm willing to wait, and yes, even pay again for it.

Kamil2014-11-23 22:44:06
@Hybrid Soldier
I can only hope you won't take these guys bullshit seriously and it won't affect your motivation in keeping this community alive.
Thanks for providing info and participation in this "Docking Scene" campaign which was truly absurd in many means but most shocking is the backlash of fans that don't understand how media composing works. The track which Hans provided, in it's own merit, is the same one, which has been used in the film. The difference is the editing/remixing, which wasn't made by Hans so I am not sure what you are expecting from him. The only thing this track is missing, if I'm not mistaken, are organ chords in the final third and the choir sampled from the "Mountains", am I correct? If it so, there shouldn't be a problem remixing this track just like the editor guys did it, so I'm sure someone will edit it eventually.

QRCode2014-11-23 22:45:47
"Hybrid" Whats more hateful, people complaining that they don't like something or you saying you "could send us all to hell if you wanted to? I'll let the "fans" the readers be the the judge of that

Stellar2014-11-23 23:17:42
@ QRCode. Do you really think Hybrid's announcement was just a cosmic coincidence? I'm pretty sure he's not stuck in his parents basement, crying like a baby as you are doing. See what I'm doing there? I'm assuming that. Because if I think that, it must be the truth. Isn't that how your mind works?

Props to Hybrid and Zimmer for their efforts! The silent majority appreciates the work that's been done. Beggars can't be choosers.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-23 23:25:29
The battle is over people, and you can keep crying on the corpses, it won't bring back the dead. Just let go...

I'm disappointed too, don't get me wrong, I love the film version, but I like the alt as well... And I won't make a melodrama for the "alt film mix" of a cue we now have. This score would have been released 5 years ago you'd have had a 50 min release of it max, like Inception, I wonder what you'd all have done... Burn RCP & Warner to the ground ?

Every HZ CD is missing great things, you should be prepared by now (it's not like we discovered something here). At least Interstellar looks "pretty much" like the film score, it's far less shocking than the presentation of Pearl Harbor, The Lone Ranger, Sherlock Holmes 2, POTC 1, 2, 3, 4, TASM 2 or Batman Begins & TDKR to name a few...

Mike2014-11-23 23:33:23

@Stellar, so your fine with Hybrid saying he can "send us all to hell" huh? Well he can start with you if he wants to.

Zimson2014-11-23 23:42:02
The only reason Hans even considered releasing this track is because he cares about his fans... a lot! If there haven't been issues with the "original track" from the movie he would have released it instead of this almost identical track.
If honestly, your response is to act like a 4 year-old crybaby than you don't deserve it anyways.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-23 23:45:24
And trust me, you're talking to the guy who came out of Inception and just wanted to hear the Mr. Charles Insert, who came out of Man Of Steel and only wanted to hear the Lois theme variations, who came out of The Lone Ranger with the great little theme for Latham Cole in his head, to finally find the OSTs without any of that material...

So yeah, I've had my share of "Why the hell are they doing this ?", but for once they tried to respond. The response wasn't perfect, sure, but you have to deal with it, and maybe pray that somehow some music editor kept the film mix somewhere and we'll see it on some FYC or whatever...

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-23 23:51:32
QRCode you're just too funny... I have never seen you around this place (been there for 8 years, I'd have noticed, unless of course you're one of those "shapeshifters" who wouldn't risk to compromise their "true" identity ! :D) and suddenly you're the big voice of reason...

If you're not happy, you can leave you know, it's not the only place to talk the Interstellar score on the internet ! I don't know, write a review on iTunes or Amazon... lol

Jamor2014-11-23 23:53:29
Well I think it's fantastic that Hybrid and Hans put in extra effort to get that track released in a matter of days. Bravo. To the people STILL complaining that it's not the exact same cue as the film version, reading comprehension seems to be a problem. It was a mix generated in post using various stems from other cues. Hans CAN'T deliver it. So what's with all the, "but I paid for this!" nonsense?

Someone will almost surely put up some kind of film rip later (and it seems like something like this already exists, even without dialogue!) so have a little patience, a little gratitude, and go whine somewhere else.

Jamor2014-11-24 00:22:46
As a follow up, I am actually more curious to know what Zimmer (and other composers) think of director's doing this to their work in movies. I've seen some movies edited to complete hell in the sound department.

JamesT2014-11-24 00:49:00
OMG, haha. The level of sheer rudeness, selfishness and entitlement about this cue and situation is unlike anything I have ever seen.

We have a superb film, a fantastic and comprehensive score release thus far (not to mention the edition that's coming in a few weeks), Hans' personal interest and immediate response to us (ALL THANKS TO HYBRID) to release another track, a credit from iTunes for the track, which essentially makes it free, that was explained by a supposed omission....

Now taking orders for arms and legs.....

I'm with Hybrid 100%. He didn't have to reach out to Hans, thankful we even have such an outlet and resource. Can we not show him some level of gratitude? And the language, fuck this and you and that. PURE DISRECPECT AND CHILDISH behavior.

If those in this camp so desperately want something you can't have, so sit in the corner and learn to write it yourself. Amazing......

bro2014-11-24 00:52:47
I think Hybrid is awesome and I have nothing bad to say about him, why are people talking bad about him?

I get a kick out of people who claim others are trying to hide their identity. Like "hybrid soldier" is your real name right? I guess it's time to "send me to hell" now right hybrid? Only someone with a God complex would even make a statement like that.

JamesT2014-11-24 01:12:14
As previously mentioned, it's not like the circumstances here are new or unique in any way. Sound editing and mixing results in this all the time lol.

Remember, a soundtrack is MUSIC FROM or INSPIRED BY, not necessarily AS HEARD in the film.

Digital delivery of music absolutely seems to be giving us more, and that's GREAT -- Hybrid is right, years ago we would have gotten half the music on CD.

And let us not pretend other gifts have not arrived, despite some time....Inception, The Last Samurai, The Fan, and on and on.

Meta2014-11-24 03:08:16
My two cents:

1: Hey at least Zimmer gave us the cue...albeit a different version. So what. He could have not given it at all.

2: This reminds me of the days when works of Williams and Elfman came out (Im talking 80s and 90s) and what you got was WHAT YOU GOT. You didn't hear any sniveling - but then again there wasn't the internet back then so read such commentary.

3: Lastly, You're going crazy over a cue that's isn't even all that. It's just a looping organ grind with crescendo, which could easily be mixed with Day One Dark and Mountains. The STAY and DETACH cues are far more superior, in my opinion...And we got those, so I'm a happy ass camper. BESIDES - with what WAS given that one dude made quite a decent remix of it which sounds almost pitch perfect to the docking track, so enjoy that little nugget of future opportunity we old timers didn't have back in those days....Christ Almighty.

Anyway, thanks for he heads-up Hybrid.

QRCode2014-11-24 04:05:18
Edmund, I wasn't calling you arrogant or egotistical so why are you taking this so personal. If you like being told by Hybrid that he can send us all to hell if he wants to, then that's your issue. I will never allow a statement like that to stand from anyone without responding to it and you shouldn't either. You are one of the "all" he was referring to weren't you?

Shazard A.2014-11-24 04:37:00
You guys are making it seem like we're upset because we didn't get the flavor candy we wanted. We are core Hans Zimmer fans and we simply want the strongest piece he's done since "Time". This is a big deal to US. Ask yourself as to why we would even make such a fuss for this. I read the other examples of soundtracks missing key tracks, perhaps those who wanted it didn't make enough noise. Expressing our desire is the only way right now we can be heard. I'm definitely not angry, I'm through the roof we even got this cue. I can still hope though that one day we'll get the track we truly want.

Hybrid, thank you for your effort. I very much appreciate it.

isildur2014-11-24 04:45:14

I'm with @Hybrid Soldier on this. We should be happy with what we've got. It's their intellectual property, they don't HAVE to sell it at all. They do though, that's how they make money, but they can decide to release what ever they want. We don't HAVE to buy anything.

It's kind of embarrassing to see the entitlement people think they deserve, the "gimme what I want now!" attitude.

I 100% agree with the fact we are people who PAID, but it is what it is, and you've done a great keeping us informed. We just have to get over it. I really do think we'll see the film mix in the future. Everyone chill (or keep discussing so we are informed, but don't bitch at the guy who listened to our concerns and tried to help us). I am actually going to try to get some answers as well, as I've met Hans several times, hung out in his studio, know many of the composers who work under his Remote Control and have spawned careers from him. I can also ask one of his mixers directly. So again, everyone stop being rude to Hybrid. Let our concerns be heard but don't be a dick.

Frankly, i cannot understand all the hatred going on! Mr. Zimmer atleast listened to the popular demand. We all need to show some heart at that. When was the last time an artist actually go to hid production company and forced them to do something his/her fans wanted? Big deal,it's not tbe exact same instrumental arrangement as in the motion picture. It does bring back the awe and emotion of this specific scene and that is enough.

As far as the monetary aspect goes, personally I dont mind paying a measly sum for a single song extra( which i will truly enjoy listening to on loop) in kind when i have already paid a sizable amount for the soundtrack.

I don't understand why hybrid is so butthurt now. It's us who pay for Zimmers music. If we pay for it, we want it to be exactly what we expect. What was released, is simply not it. Above everything, where are those choirs?

Interpretation by Randal Paul is actually more accurate to the original track from movie. At least it has those bombastic organs in it, even though ending is shit.

I appreciate that you reached out to Zimmer, we all do, but the thing is that this whole fiasco shouldn't even happen. From the get-go, track, original one, from the movie, should be released on original 16 track album, since its the climax of the movie. This is like "Time" from Inception wouldn't be released on original album. And later on, they would release worse interpretation of it. Can you imagine that?

Furthermore, even though we already purchased deluxe album, we have to separately buy that track again, but not only that, the track is not the same as is in the movie. And you are baffled why we are mad and disappointed ? We are not dogs, where you can just throw us a bone and expect we will be happy as long as something similar is released. I'm sure Zimmer will release re-mastered track in future, maybe on that 18th December Star edition Album. I don't mind waiting for it till Blu-Ray comes out next year even. As long as it is released.

bro2014-11-22 14:44:13
they probably have a good reason for not including it

Mortifer V.2014-11-22 14:51:28
If they needed more time to release the film version or AT LEAST something resembling the film version (having the choir and more prominent organ) then they SHOULD take their time.
I personally didn't care to get it as fast as possible; I just wanted the right track no matter when I got it. And now that this is released there's like almost zero chances that we get the film version officially.
I'm not disappointed with what we got and of course it's a fantastic accomplishment, but it's like getting the track but still not getting it. And it's not even free.
I wonder what will be in the Illuminated Starbox.

That's assuming Hybrid really has any juice whatsoever to "reach out to Zimmer" I think he's just a big pretender wannabe. Where is there any proof Mr. green font has any connection with Hans Zimmer in the first place? Just creating a Zimmer tribute website does not automatically make you Hans Zimmer's close buddy anymore than driving an Astin Martin makes you James Bond.

I suggest you simply go on the front page of our very website, you'll see a news (all on the top !) called "Hans Zimmer Revealed - review", which Nicolas wrote retracing the few days we spent with Hans in late september for his concert's rehearsals...

Let's just wait and see what happens, shall we!

NM2014-11-18 22:32:22
"WaterTower leaves out the best track in the whole goddamn movie and you're telling US to be patient!"

How about you stop being a petulant shit.

I mean, the track's being released now, freely, so give it a rest. Honestly if I were Zimmer I'd just feel like "fuck this shit". A good release was put together (for once) and all people do is bitch about one track with practically no new material in it not being released.

"If these pricks don't release the track today I'll teach 10 kids a day how to pirate WaterTower Music!"

Yeah that'll show them. Oh wait, no it won't.

Sorry for my grumblings but the entitlement just fucking stinks. I don't mind the disappointment or irritation of people who paid for it, with the release not being as comprehensive as they'd have liked, but the vitriol, whining, insults and threats of pirating it (not just this site btw - plenty places) really frustrate me, particularly knowing that a lot of the loudest moaners (again, not necessarily on this site) haven't even paid a fucking cent for it.

...2014-11-18 22:47:35
Oh come on! this is just rude and bad language...We all are dissaponted but I don't think anyone comes in here and gets deeply hurt and releases the cue faster if someone is calling them a fucking idiot or whatever...

Let's chill! Enjoy life!

NM2014-11-19 00:20:34
Well I realise in hindsight my post was a little aggressive, so apologies.

It's just one of my pet peeves. I'm only an amateur, semi-pro at best, so I don't have much authority with which to speak on this, but I have at least some understanding from the small projects I've done how much work it takes to produce music, especially music that is actually good!

So when people start talking about pirating it, meh, I know it's out of frustration, but it feels like it's just showing a lack of valuing and a lack of appreciation for the effort that went into making the music. Particularly in the case of Interstellar, which is one of my favorite scores this year and has some really intriguing cues (I really enjoy the 'dark' material with the chimes and rumbling timpani) and beautiful moments ('Detach' ending).

Jeff2014-11-21 21:16:04
theeaglesfan005 - first of all, thank you for the film order...much appreciated...I still can't understand why they wouldn't simply release the album in correct film order in the first place...half the fun is getting to experience the film all over again using just the score!

Second, I saw recently you mentioned atmospheric entry in fact comes after wormhole and before mountains...that's definitely the case? I've also been wondering about First Step...why would that come so late in the film? What first step is it signifying? And shouldn't dust be earlier, since it seems to allude to the near-opening scene of the elderly folks remembering what it was like during the blight? Or is it specifically from the dust storm our characters find themselves in at the baseball game? And is the message from home supposed to be the messages they receive BEFORE entering the wormhole, or the videos Coop watches in anguish after experiencing time dilation from his trip to Miller's Planet? It would be awesome if they released a track-by-track breakdown explaining exactly what parts of the film each track I love everything about this film :)

theeaglesfan005 2014-11-21 21:37:04

tracks 1-16 are in order… and tracks 17-23 are in order as they appear in the film (minus tracks 17 and 23)

just the deluxe edition isn’t in complete order

I’m pretty sure it’s before they land on Miller’s planet

First Step is the teaser trailer music… the very first trailer for Interstellar that was in front of the hobbit last december

Message From Home is when they first get the messages before arriving to Saturn

fizzbin2014-11-23 01:26:03
I was an hour ago in cinema; the track "Atmospheric entry" is definitiv the landing on the "Ice-Planet", also the second planet not the first. In the first was only SFX, as i remember

zoe_jane2014-11-23 20:43:11
Isn't I'm Going Home the same track that played when they first started spinning with the Endurance, before they left for Saturn?

NM2014-11-23 20:58:31
"If we pay for it, we want it to be exactly what we expect."

How were they meant to know that people 'expected' to hear a tracked-in variation on cues that were already on the album? It seems a lot of people would've been happy to see 'Detatch' or 'A Place Among the Stars' sacrificed if it meant getting more of (what's closest in this score to) Zimmer's action material.

Funnily enough, paying for something does not entitle you to exactly what you want, it entitles you to what's on offer, and if you don't like it, then you don't buy it.

I'll add my disgust for the whining that's been going on. Get a life people! I actually regret Zimmer catered to these losers.

NM2014-11-23 19:36:55
"I bet this guy is the type of guy who accepts everything in society for what it is and can't stand up for himself."

Yes, because bitching about a 2 minute piece of music not being released in the exact form that you want it is an exemplary example of someone 'sticking it to the man'. Maybe we should write to the government about this injustice?

"LOLOLOL the vast majority is extremely disappointed dude, and with fucking reason, this is completely unacceptable. At least we're not kissing Mr. Zimmer's ass like you guys are. Conformists is what you are."

Speak for yourself, 'the vast majority' probably don't give a shit, because they don't come on sites like this. I still fail to see how not including a short piece of tracked-in music that was quite possibly hacked together by an editor at the last minute renders the entire album 'completely unacceptable', even though it's one of the more comprehensive ones to be released.

Anyway, I hope it's never released and that it never leaks out either.

Anonymous2014-11-23 19:48:31
Completely unacceptable that they would say "HERE IT IS THE DOCKING SCENE MUSIC!" when it's not, and actually charge us for something that isn't.

Anonymous2014-11-22 13:27:20
Let me be clear first that I mean no disrespect to you or to Mr. Zimmer but You can't be serious right? Do you actually believe that us hardcore Zimmer fans are satisfied with the track that was uploaded? Honestly, most of us were expecting the same cue from the movie, and it's not, can you honestly say that is the best they could do? I mean.. We're allowed to express our discontent are we not?
Yeah there are some comments that were out of line, but that shows you how disappointed we are. I just want to hear your opinion, do you believe the track uploaded is up to standards? In my case I don't believe so, but I'm not expecting anything from Mr. Zimmer, just expressing my feelings of not getting the BEST cue of the movie the way it deserves to be. But oh well, guess we'll have to wait for the bluray release to enjoy it with the movie.

antovolk2014-11-22 13:49:23
I'm very shocked too.

My feeling is that it's just the recording sessions version, and the film mix added a bit more of the organ. I really appreciate that this got released anyway :)

Probably a lot of the issue lies with the mastering because it's off compared to the rest of the album and very quiet at first. I've boosted the volume by 2db on the first 2:30 and it sounds a lot more even. I guess Zimmer rushed to get this released that's why it isn't mastered nearly as well as the whole album.

hardvibes2014-11-22 13:53:18
Hey Hybrid thank you for what you're doing. We respect you, but please acknowledge (of course it's not your fault) that 1) the volume is low compared to the other tracks 2) it's missing the most epic organ 3) it's missing the choir 4) the track should have been free for those who already bought the ost.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-22 13:54:03
It's not 100% the film version ? So what ?

It's the track as written for the film, then what, the music mixer was asked to change a few things, lower some stems in favor of others, mute others ?

Honestly I'm tired of explaining this to you. It was the last time I pushed Hans to release anything. I'm usually mad at him for his OST "artistic choices", but this time he made a move, he got something out with Paramount & Warner in less than what, 3 days ? Next time you can all just go cry forever. Go wait for "complete scores" for years & years, that's all you deserve...

I'm perfectly ok with the track, let me just go back listening to it ! :)

I agree with Hybrid Soldier too.
I know the track is a bit different, and a bit lower than the rest. But honnestly, when I read all the negative messages down here, I was hyper scared what to expect. And finally, I listened to it, and I definitely looooove it! It brings the atmosphere, the drama of the scene, and that's all that I asked. So, I say thank you for that!

Ds2014-11-22 14:11:37
Hybrid, thank you for what you've done. I really appreciate that you spent time reaching Hans, telling him how disappointed his fans were. I think it's wonderful Hans heard our complaints and released it in a few days. And I understand why you're angry now; you move your ass and all you get is even more people complaining.

That's why I'm not gonna complain. I bought that track, listened to it, tried to make it sound consistent with the rest of the album, then gave up. I quietly deleted "No Time For Caution" from my iTunes, and replaced it by "Day One Dark", which sounds way better despite being only 128kbps, and is just cool in the middle of the album, rather than as a suite put at the very end.

That's just my two cents, thanks again for what you've done, and please keep up your outstanding work!!!

eric2014-11-22 14:16:55
Hybrid they fuck up and you support them? Wow...

bro2014-11-22 14:18:02
I think the point they are making hybrid is that they begged you to ask Hans to release it only because they fell in love with the organ and choir favored version.

But as far as the "quality" of the first half, if you listen to the bootlegs on youtube, you can hear this IS THE SAME track they used for the score. They didn't use the recordings from "Day One - Dark" like the fan made stuff did, they used this track. Samples, demo recordings, who knows. But it's the same. (Until the end, obviously)

Day One - Dark is out there and available for anyone who wants the "cleaned up/mastering" of the suite version.

HalfLucan2014-11-22 14:18:32
Humm, I've had mixed opinions on this. But the reality is that a lot of sales and pre-orders were made based on the presumption that this track would be on the OST, as is.

I'm grateful that you got this released at all and its definitely worth the &#163;1 extra, but having to rationalise gratitude for something I've paid for doesn't really sit well with me either.

So maybe we will have to wait years, but i hope it still happens.

Anonymous2014-11-22 14:25:46
So let me get this straight hybrid, you actually believe we should be satisfied with (arguably) the best cue of the movie as it was released? The cue that everyone wants? ... Ok. The fact that you say you enjoy the track as it was released says so much about you. At least admit it's pretty horrible. Anyways, guess we'll have to keep crying as you say. Good day to you sir.

Random2014-11-22 14:31:52
Honestly, this is business. We all payed money for this album, therefore we have claim to a certain quality we used to get by Hans Zimmer. In my opinion this shouldn't be done in 3 days. If Hans needs his time for releasing it, he should have get it.

HalfLucan2014-11-22 14:39:13
Yeah, if someone had said "we need like 2 weeks to get this ready and stuff" i think a lot of people would have been cool with that.

Jo2014-11-22 14:42:10
I think it's great they reacted anyway, and I like the track. As long as we get the Eureka somehow/somewhere I can live with this version very well.

Insulting people really won't help, we can always only beg for what we wish for ...and hope.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-22 14:44:36
Actually, who tells you the track actually exist as you want it to exist ?

The "choir" and the "extra organ" you are talking about is in Mountains. Who tells you the music mixer wasn't forced to used that cue's stems to incorporate it into No Time For Caution at the last minute ?

A good friend of mine was telling me a few days back that he actually thought the Docking cue in the film might was messy and could be some insert. Which would also explain why Hans didn't want to incoporate it in the soundtrack in the first place. That thing might not even exist in this form in the final stereo mixes...

You have the track written, you'll get nothing else, if you want choir or organ, listen to Mountains...

Hybrid Soldier,
THANK YOU for helping bring the track to us. It's beautiful and I've been listening to it non-stop. Most of the commenters from the past 24-hours should be ashamed on themselves and embarassed by their lack of gratitude. As someone who knows the kind of work/action that went into this, it's amazing we have it at all...let alone so quickly.

Keep up the good work — and THANKS again to you, Hans and the team for making the track available.

daypass2014-11-23 02:53:15
Christopher Nolan is on the record as having Interstellar mixed to sound "adventurous and creative". Since this resulted in something different than Hans' original score, could this be a watershed moment for an isolated score track on the "Interstellar" Blu-ray?

All these whinning fans are boring ! I loved the music in the movie and was dissapointed not to have this cue on the album, but here it is ! Hybrid, Zimmer, and all people involved in the rushy realease of this 4 minutes cue have just to be thanked, that's all !
Moreover, personnally, I enjoy the cue as it's been realeased ! As Hybrid said, on numerous movies, the delivered tracks on the score differs from what we heard in the movie, sometimes an entire piece of music from a scene is cut because it re-uses some parts of the score previously heard...
This is not a disaster ! Just get Audacity and, like me, build your own montage, you're own suite ! BTW, some people already propose amazing suites from scores, whether or not its legal, I dont know ! Thank you Chief Dundee ;) !
If harcore fans want the exact track, edit the one released, add the mountain choir and you got it !
The 3 different releases is another debate, for which I dont know the Zimmer involvment or decision power, and to be honest I dont care because he delivered such a score ! Let him rest now!

FFS all these bad feelings and garbage talks for a score which deserved quite the opposite !

You guys are overreacting.
It's not the first time a soundtrack is different from a movie's music (Imagine the Fire and the bridge scene in TDKR, and I think it's interesting to have different sounds)
And even if you are disappointed, you should be grateful to Hybrid and Hans, I mean, how many artists add a cue to their soundtrack to please their fans ???????

Sorry for my english, I'm french.

conklingcow2014-11-23 17:15:47
Just saw the film last night but I was really uncomfortable with how much that track sounded like the Soulsavers' track 'Closer' that was used to great effect in the documentary 'Battleground: 21 Days on the Edge of Empire". Can't post a link here but you can find it on YouTube and give it a listen.

If you check this site, nolanfans, youtube, reddit, reviews. EVERYWHERE people are talking about this track or doing their own edits.

I don't think Hans would have expected that his "most personal score since years" would be so overshadowed by angry and disappointed people. Funny thing is: the people want the tracks Hans didn't even make.

But then again I understand all the dissapointment. Because a soundtrack means "music FROM the movie" and not "music THAT SOUNDS LIKE music from the movie"

CobraBoy2014-11-23 11:50:59
Exactly. They don't want a Zimmer's track, but a Edited track that Zimmer didn't approve actually. Maybe he doesn't like it ? It's not his track. I like both, but his version is nice.

Mortifer V.2014-11-23 11:56:01
"He doesn't like it"? lol

CobraBoy2014-11-23 13:05:13
He did not write the edited track. It's a remix of No Time for Caution and Mountains, and maybe he doesn't like to hear his score remixed ?

Ds2014-11-23 13:22:18
I find it hard to believe that "No Time For Caution" was the actual track Hans sent to the dub stage. Seriously? Hans has got incredibly high production value standards, while this track really sounds like a roughly edited mock-up, I'd even say cheap and kind of soulless. I don't know what happened there, but I'm glad someone re-edited it for the picture, because the original sounded just flat and wouldn't have had the same impact!

About this "Eureka" scene, it might very well be the same thing as "No Time For Caution": a montage done by editors. But the editors had to get a source material, so it's entirely possible that this amazing piano solo was part of a bigger suite... that COULD be on the extended super deluxe edition (since I strongly believe the bonus material will be suites).

Fun thought: maybe in five years or so, we'll get one of those concert spectacles with the entire score performed live to a screening of the film, complete with organ and 60-piece choir. I'd buy a ticket for sure. Do spread the idea to Hans!
