Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?
me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.CD RELEASE?
Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.
There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>

Does anyone know if there will be a score release for Home? There's a measly 30 minute song album, which doesn't include any score cues.


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-20 12:39:57
There will be ! :)


Matt2015-03-20 13:32:09
Yes! Thanks Hybrid - I knew you'd know. I really enjoyed Penguins so I'm looking forward to it. You don't know when to expect it?


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-20 16:16:47
No dates yet, I asked a few days ago... But it's gonna be released soon. :)


Pablo Reyes2015-03-21 15:02:53
That's freaking awesome! A few days ago I asked Lorne and he said he wasn't sure. I guess we know now!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 7 || 2014-11-15 16:31:27
I added an extract if you wanna check... :)


Ds2014-11-15 16:39:00
Thanks Hybrid, have you heard the full thing?


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 16:42:29
Yes I have ! As you can see in the extract it's very orchestral. It uses Jim Dooley's "traditional" Penguins theme a few times. No other link with Madagascar. Sounds more Megamind to me than Madagascar actually... :)


Ds2014-11-15 17:28:53
Good, I like the Megamind score. But too bad there's no Madagascar theme, because it puts a big smile on my face every time I hear it :p

Especially since this freaking amazing performance in London, I couldn't believe it but this piece from Madagascar was incredible.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 17:30:44
Yeah but it's the Madagascar theme, for those characters... Alex, Gloria, Marty & Melman are not here... Why would there be their theme ? It makes no sense... The Penguins had their own theme & style, which is used here... :)


Ds2014-11-15 17:48:40
I don't remember the penguins having their own theme in the Madagascar movies... which is where they belong, first of all! I thought the TV spin-off would not be connected to any movie, that's why I hoped kind of a connection with Madagascar :-)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 17:49:54
Just listen Whacked Out Conspiracy from Mada 1... lol


badbu2014-11-25 20:34:33

Ds2014-11-02 21:04:44
Yeah, awesome! Do you know if Balfe reused the main theme from Madagascar, or started completely fresh?


Felix2014-11-02 21:20:33
It would be so cool :D


Radik2014-11-04 22:15:28
Great, first bigger solo Lorne's project :))


Mike2014-11-04 22:35:02
Ds, I can't imagine that he WOULDN'T reuse the theme from Madagascar, seeing as he's been involved with the other ones... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-04 22:51:23
I highly doubt that, it'll be all original I think...
