CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s music
i can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2
Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?
Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

This was recently added back onto Spotify. Just an FYI for those of us who actually wanted to listen to this soundtrack for the past 2 years.

Little "who did what" from the cuesheet... :)


Edmund Meinerts2015-04-18 22:14:49
Thanks! A shame it doesn't clarify the nature of Jackman and Margeson's collaboration better, but it's nice to know what Dom Lewis did at any rate. He's a really good composer, often seems to contribute to some of the best moments of whichever score he's working on at the time (Cap 2).


FunnyML2015-05-20 20:19:10
Did you use actual cuesheets or infos from the ASCAP database?

WOW the movie is fucking good!! And the score....wow, I can't take this in words what I feel about it :D

One thing that puzzles me about this score is that, on album, in many areas it sounds as if we were given the synth mock ups for the score, rather than the recorded cues.


Edmund Meinerts2015-02-26 19:22:40
Yes, well, I thought that about the entire Man of Steel score...

Now THIS is the score "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" should've been.


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-05 12:52:05
No way !

CATWS is one of my 2 fav' scores from 2014, it shouldn't have been any different !!


Ds2015-02-05 14:55:22
Hybrid, did someone hack your computer??


Edmund Meinerts2015-02-05 15:07:32
I certainly hope so. *shudders*

Anyways, yeah, this score sounds fun from what I've heard of it, but the style is all wrong for Winter Soldier. Not saying that score is good - it's dreadful for the most part - but this cool Bond/RC hybrid sound wouldn't have worked at all in that movie.


meta2015-02-05 16:53:51
i agree. Cap 2 is one of my most listened to scores of 2014


KT Koskela2015-02-05 17:44:49
Edmund, what I meant by that was that Captain America: The Winter Soldier should've been an epic, heavily-orchestral, fun-filled awesomefest that this score is showing us right now.


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-05 17:54:27
Thanks meta, I've stopped counting how many times I've listened to it... :)


Ds2015-02-05 18:23:21
Hybrid, what do you find so good and enjoyable in this score? I've struggled to hear it once entirely, and during the movie it did me absolutely nothing, just a serviceable but random background music... So I never played it again.

I think TASM2 is way more enjoyable when it comes to fun electronic music for superheroes...


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-05 18:50:47
Well first of all I love the film, it's one of the best Marvels with Iron Man 1 & Thor 1...

When I first heard the OST I was like "Wait, what ??!", then I saw the film... :)

Then, as a kid from the 90s I love the constant influence of dance/electronica from the 90s on Jackman (in the Cap suite). Love the Cap main theme, and there's a great balance between pure orchestral madness by Dom Lewis & electro action by Margeson. The Winter Soldier I find the theme pretty impressive with the character, and it's actually a "theme", not ambient, just great electronica (and Dom Lewis' voiced sampled lol). The film also has a big influence (no idea if it's direct, indirect or totally unwanted lol) from the Metal Gear Solid saga, and the Hydra theme (choir & all) has also an influence (coincidence ?) from some of HGW's cues from Metal Gear Solid 2 (which I love :)).

And those who wanted CA 2 to be "traditional", well I think there's quite enough of that in the score (check the amazing Dom Lewis End Credits arrangement of the main theme, John Williams' style lol).

There's nothing wrong I can say against this score. Then, it's my taste, works for me... That's all... :)


Edmund Meinerts2015-02-05 19:22:28
I really hope a complete score emerges for that one soon. There seemed to be a lot more good stuff in the film than made the album, which was apparently designed to showcase as much of the unappealing music as humanly possible. I feel like I can't really fairly judge the score yet.

However - SPOILERS - I think the Winter Soldier theme is terrible. Besides making me want to claw my ears off for the most part, it's a totally inappropriate "Why So Serious?" wannabe forced onto a completely different character. The Winter Soldier isn't an agent of chaos, he's a good person who's been mutilated into a weapon for evil, and the theme seems to only acknowledge that latter half of his character. The mid-credits stinger in particular was ridiculously mis-scored - that was a moment of Bucky regaining his humanity, why did they layer that Godawful screech over it?!?

The new theme is OK, but unnecessary. Silvestri's - twisted into darker, less WWII-ish variations, of course - would have done a much better job. The rest of the score on album is third-rate by-the-numbers RC action and suspense that could have been in anything. Some of it, eg "Fury", represents pretty much the worst that RC can get IMO.

What's frustrating about this score is that at times you can clearly hear Jackman's talent peeking out and when it's in its good moments, it's really quite good. It's just that when it's in its bad moments, it's really, REALLY bad, and there's way more bad moments than good moments on that album. Like I said, I'd love to hear a complete for this one.

Yeah I can't wait for this movie and score! Matt Vaughn is an incredible director, and the music in his movies has been consistently cool (Kick-Ass, what a crazy score...) so I think we're in for a fantastic ride!
