Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt Sprengers
The only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?
Very interesting interview. Thanks man!Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.
No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.Yesssssssssss yessss yesCan't wait for this soundtrack.<br>Just a few days left.Oh. My. Gods. (The old ones and the new.) That's so good news. And I can't wait for sunday.<br><br>The best is, that I can here the soundtrack before I watch the final episode. And I like to hear to a score without knowing wich music belongs to what kind of scene.Yesss. Can't wait!

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..

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2015-03-31 20:50:37
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.

Gotta say I'm really digging this sample! Junkie XL has really surprised me lately, between this and Divergent.
