Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.
Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/
i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?
"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.

I know many don't like this score but I don't really find it terrible. There is actually some pretty cool synth work and the main theme is very strong IMO.

My only complaint is the similarity to The Dark Knight, I feel some of this music would have served Batman V Superman much better.


Eobard2018-04-20 12:15:19
Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.

at last it was released !, amazing soundtrack, i liked it. is impossible not appreciate the zimmer's style in this score. really Junkie XL is the best disciple and partner of Hans. They have practically the same way to compose.


Lord Eddard Stark 2015-03-31 17:30:02
I disagree... in my opinion the best disciple of Hans Zimmer is Klaus Badelt


Anonymous2015-04-01 03:32:26
Klaus...?

HG-W for sure!


trent easton navarro2015-04-01 09:55:46
JXL would actually be one of the worst Zimmer disciples. All of his scores have been average at best, unlistenable at worst...

The best Zimmer disciples would be the class of the 90's, guys like Mancina, Powell, HG-W and Rona


thejok3rrules2015-04-01 18:04:20
How about Henry Jackman?


Lambegue2015-04-01 19:13:25
I'd say Powell above all the others. But don't misunderstand me, a lot of "disciples" from Remote Control are very good.

I'm not a great admirator of recent Zimmer's disciples, in fact. But that would be stupid from me to give a definitive opinion about them, we'll see what they will do in the future.



Meta2015-04-11 04:39:31
Ive said it before as well...

This guy sounds like he's using Zimmer's late 90s synths and is going at it like Tyler Bates circa 2005....makes me wonder if Zimmer helped him out on Mad Max with some of the softer cues.....

Saw the film yesterday, pretty entertaining. Shame about the extra large junk of a score though!

Based on the music, I expected Batman to show up.


MacArthur2015-04-09 19:23:55
I Thought that the score was great honestly can't complain about a 53 min long song.


Anonymous2015-04-09 22:14:31
i don't really think this score deserves a Sketchbook. And I feel sorry for Nick Glennie-Smith, a great underrated composer, for having to conduct crap like this


Edmund Meinerts2015-04-10 18:55:24
Nepotism has been a great thing for Mr. XL.

The theme to Run All Night almost sounds like it was from the Imaginaerum film..

Junkie XL said the new Mad Max trailer contained mostly his music, and well I have to say I can't wait, it looks like a very bad-ass and epic score!!

Got to sit in on part of the recording session for this one. Really liked what I heard. Cant wait.


MrZimmerFan2015-02-28 11:40:56
OMG! 123 minutes... i hope for going to be good


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-28 12:55:18
The 52 min Sketchbook... lol


Mike2015-02-28 15:28:20
Borrowing ideas from Man of Steel, I see... ;)


Pluto2015-02-28 17:56:03
Haha, between Hans and Junkie, it wouldn't surprise me if we saw two CDs of one sketchbook from each of them for Batman v Superman.

Disc 1: Hans Sketchbook (60 minutes)
Disc 2: Junkie Sketchbook (60 minutes)


Mortifer V.2015-02-28 18:34:07
60 minute Hans Sketchbook?? that'd be freaking incredible. I with the Man of Steel sketchbook was 60min.


Edmund Meinerts2015-02-28 20:05:25
All this sketchbook stuff doesn't really interest me - it'll just end up being redundant demo versions of the ideas that are already in the score. I'd much rather hear the Lois Escape cue from MoS than an extended sketchbook.


Anonymous2015-02-28 23:25:50
If it helps, and if I'm thinking of the cue you are describing, Edmund, someone did their own mock-up of it that sounds really pretty great. Just search Man of Steel Escape from Ship. It will be by James Wong.

53 minute "sketchbook" is pretty ridiculous.


Mortifer V.2015-03-01 23:10:21
Even though I too want the Lois track really bad, I couldn't live without the sketchbook; the last 8 minutes of it are my favorite from the entire score.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-01 23:43:00
I much prefer the version of that idea in "If You Love These People".


NM2015-03-02 22:32:50
I actually really like hearing demoes of the music. I'd love to hear/demos sketches of a lot of scores to get an insight into composers' process.
