I seriously don't understand why they didn't do two separate releases like most musicals do (La La Land comes to mind - perfect release). <br><br>A soundtrack album and a score album. No missing tracks, no fuss. And optional 2-CD set containing both.<br><br>Instead, they went with a soundtrack album with some of the score and another song album for whatever reason that is lol.The second half of the new "Elephant Graveyard" is basically note for note "I Was Just Trying to Be Brave" from the 1994 version as well, just with a few changes in orchestrationThis is only HGW's score, a good chunk of it was rejected.Wonder if it will take 20 years for an official complete score XD Not to mention any unofficial leaks (it took a long time to even get that for the original film). TBH, I'd prefer a proper release of any score any day of the week.<br><br>To answer the question above me: Mostly it's new material using the same themes from 1994, though if my interpretation the OST is correct, the hyenas and Timon and Pumbaa get new themes. The only true 'copies' of music from 1994 are Circle of Life and Remember, but even then, they are at least partially-new recordings.Do we know who wrote what?
Is it all material from 1994 or is it new 2019 score?I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.
As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"Hahahahaha well I’m glad he got the credit then :D
I absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!And I’m guessing Neill Blomkamp contributed somehow to the “We Own This Sky” theme that pops up throughout...

Listening to this complete score and once again it strikes me how much weaker, quieter, less punchy recording sessions frequently sound when compared to the equivalent album tracks. The Pirates of the Caribbean completes have the same problem. It puts me in kind of a conundrum because take from this score "Runaway Train" vs. its album track "The Railroad Waits for No One". The percussion in particular sounds so much more satisfying and prominent in the latter. So do I take the version with the two extra minutes of material, or the version that sounds much more vibrant and exciting to listen to? Or do I edit together some weird mixture of the two (which is actually what I did, but that's an imperfect solution too because a) it's time-consuming and b) then the track constantly moves back and forth between two different mastering styles which is distracting).

Not to mention the huge chunks of silence at the beginning and end (and sometimes middle) of tracks, and the crappy sound quality on "Ride Out/Spirit Horse" and "Aftermath Village Slaughter". It's great to be able to hear these recording sessions but sometimes their flaws are too irritating to ignore...it's quite clear that they weren't prepared for consumption at all, and getting them to the point where you can listen to them is hard work sometimes!


Mike (OTM)2018-05-02 15:45:11
I noticed that with The Dark Knight Rises... a lot of the cues sound like demos almost, even the final versions, where the score in-film is a lot more polished.


Mr Tweedy2018-05-02 18:58:22
That's why I'm mastering my bootlegs before givin them a "real" listen.
Though you can't really master stereo files the same way studios do masterings (with separate layers of instruments), I manage to add some noticeable energy to the bootleg tracks.


mpolonest123 2018-05-02 19:47:24
It’s funny how certain RS are affected by this whole mastering thing while others aren’t. TASM2 and MoS sound almost perfect, while AWE has completely different instrumental layering (although in that case I prefer the more traditional sound as opposed to the bass heavy album).


Joshua2018-05-02 20:37:44
Well considering the film versions have to compete with dialogue and sound effects, it's an absolute must to make them "less punchy" or "quieter". There's only so much sonic space to play with. But with album versions you can go balls to wall. It's not a problem in the recordings. They're doing exactly what there designed to do.


Edmund Meinerts2018-05-02 21:05:58
Yeah I know, it's only a "problem" if you're listening on its own, which these files were never really meant for. I understand the circumstances, it's still just a bit frustrating.

Incidentally, I actually prefer the sessions' mix of "Train Chase" (or "Finale"). It lets the dynamics breathe a bit more whereas the album version was a bit brickwalled and over-loud and exhausting (which works okay for your usual Zimmer/RC-style simplistic power action music but not quite as well for a more dynamically orchestral piece like this; I have the same issue with Thomas Bergersen's "That's a Wrap"). Also the opening trumpet isn't quite as piercing and abrupt (I actually get a huge "jump-scare" sometimes when it comes up on shuffle). So you win some, you lose some. :)

mpolonest, I sort of agree on AWE, although I do wish the sessions had just a *bit* more power. It's not 100% traditionally composed orchestral music, after all, still has that Zimmer heavy touch which goes missing a bit in the sessions. The ideal medium would be somewhere between the sessions and the overly-loud album (which is hopefully what we'll get when that score gets an official complete release one of these years from someone like La-La-Land, which I'm perhaps foolishly optimistic it will, there's so much great unreleased material and it's a very, very popular score, with good reason).


mpolonest123 2018-05-02 21:28:13
@Edmund Well more traditional in the Zimmer sense lol.
With the first Pirates and DMC, you need to have that bass heavy “rock’n’roll” sound, AWE was always a pretty different score tonally.

As for the issues with session mastering, I always edit my copies to remove silences and boost volumes when needed. The only major issue that seems to arise is when lossy files are released. BvS, as one example, sounds atrocious in parts due to the quality of sound.


Edmund Meinerts2018-05-02 21:58:25
Boosting volume helps but it doesn't bring the music up to album levels. There's a much more involved amount of balancing/mixing/mastering that goes into albums that is far beyond my rudimentary Audacity skills...


mpolonest123 2018-05-02 22:04:57
Oh definitely not... I think you would need the stems to have a 100% perfect representation of the album sound. (Though I’m sure some people have strong enough editing skills to come close)

Two asides:

1. In Cavendish Escape (film version) there are some awesome drum placements when he exits the train with his gang that aren’t on the sessions. We’re those done by a music editor?

2. How on earth did the skeleton dance and finale cue from Curse of the Black Pearl pass the bar with those horrible bass distortions? I don’t think I’ve ever heard an official release with something as botched as that....


Edmund Meinerts2018-05-02 23:11:12
There's some pretty gnarly bass distortions in "Terraforming" from Man of Steel as well (at around the 2:30 mark) but I'm not sure those aren't on purpose...


mpolonest123 2018-05-03 02:34:28
Those are pretty noticeable, although they do fit the whole terraforming sound design in a weird way. I want to say there is some awful mixing in the Hero Fight cue from BVS as well. Actually, make that most of Junkie XL’s scores. Run All Night and Mad Max have some genuinely bad portions.

Edmund Meinerts2015-03-10 13:51:35
I personally prefer slashes to hyphens but as long as one or the other is used consistently, everything's cool. :)


RealFfingMusic2015-03-10 16:48:20
Well, hyphens are used to join two words. Slash is used to separate two parts of the same element. So yeah, slash is more accurate.

Who cares, you have a problem ? You're free to leave !


RealFfingMusic2015-03-10 18:03:41
@Hybrid, don't be dick. I never said I have a problem. I don't have anything against hyphens. I just mentioned in Indian English slash is MORE accurate here, doesn't mean hyphen is wrong.
