mpolonest123 Iím glad Iím not the only one who enjoys Jurassic World. It think it pays great tribute to John Williamsí groundbreaking work for the JP franchise, but it also had many exciting and creative motifs that made the score stand out in my mind.As for Pan, I initially wasnít impressed at all with the music. It took about a year for it to sink in and let me fall in love with the themes.@mrzimmerfan<br>Yeah, I definitely disagree. When I was watching Rogue One in theaters I kept getting taken out of the film because of the music, which isnít something that I normally pay attention to when I watch movies. <br><br>And I know it gets criticized a lot, but I honestly love Jurassic World. The flat recording sound aside, I think itís an intelligent score that does something new the franchise material while still paying tribute. Even Homecoming has grown on me, particularly Vultureís theme.@Ds: i'm not a big fan for Pan, i liked the score, but Powell have MUUUCH better action/fantasy scores."Pan" was also a replacement score, and look at the marvelous Powell score we got... However I don't know how long he had to score it. Certainly a bit more time than what Giacchino got for Rogue One.
The action music is flat in Rogue One?, agree if the score isn't as good as Jupiter Ascending, for example, but the action music is BETTER than Spider-Man or Jurassic World.<br><br>IMHOAlso new Harry Gregson-Williams score out today! Breath.To be fair, Giacchino didnít have much time to work on Rogue One, which explains why certain portions (coughactionmusiccough) fell flat. Itís not a bad score at all, but yeah, John Powell is above and beyond a better composer. His recordings have life and energy, and while most of it still sounds like Powell, he is able to switch into Williams mode so easily.<br><br>In defense of Giacchino though, just go listen to Jupiter Ascending if you want a score on the same level as this. The action music is phenomenal, there are at least a dozen solid themes, and the recording doesnít seem as flat as some of his other scores.I think Powell found his niche with this score...<br>Because he's WAY better at apeing Williams than Giacchino could ever be, and with way more energy....<br><br>And here Giacchino prides his work on Williams from his origins in video game music... <br><br>This blows Giacchino out of the ocean and into the moon. This surprises me, as I expected Giacchino to have such  huge hard-on for Williams.Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer, <br>Hallo Hans,<br>  <br>ich habe einige ihrer Konzerte gesehen, Prag jedoch, war wirklich, ich kann es nicht in Worte fassen, unglaublich. Top Musiker und eine super performance!<br>Ihre Musik ist eine Inspiration.<br>Hoffentlich hŲren wir noch viele StŁcke von Ihnen...<br><br>Hochachtungsvoll und liebe GrŁŖe<br>Stefan
Yeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great scoreHe is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.
John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lolim surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)

Hybrid - do you have any news or actual tracks for Oats? The trailers look amazing

Micheal reply Replies: 0 || 2017-06-13 23:30:22
Detroit will be amazing with Lorne's score . Beyond Two Souls was one of the most amazing game soundtracks ever . The trailer for Detroit sound cool. Hybrid - is there a release date ?

For everyone who is enjoying this insane flood of Lorne music; take a listen to both this score and Beyond Two Souls. Easily two of his best works, you can definitely hear Lorne's voice in them.


Emilio2017-06-11 18:07:45
Never heard of this sound track before but thank you for recommending it . Sounds very interstellar but then I see it was before intersteller ! Thank you for sharing


MichaeThomas2017-06-11 18:26:09
Never heard of this film ? Just bought the soundtrack now after listen to the examples .very very enjoyable . Balfe is becoming my favorite composer from Remote since John Powell


PetersMorg2017-06-11 19:22:50
I can not seem to find the film on line ? The music is great. Balfe is amazing this year


mpolonest1232017-06-11 19:58:46
Glad you guys enjoy it! :-) The film is online, you just have to search for it.

The funny thing about Lorne is that he is one of the only composers who can make a fake orchestra sound just as good as a real one. His "Beckett" demo from AWE, for example, is insanely good and shows a true talent for writing for writing engaging, muscular action music.


JarMun2017-06-11 22:03:11
Agreed . Beckett sounded amazing.i prefer his smaller projects. Lorne's music is intamit and special


Rigby2017-06-11 22:58:38
Another great score of Lorne Balfe is AC3. The Father and Son cue is so emotional and powerful, and the main theme itself is killer!!!


Dan2017-06-12 13:36:51
This music is great . I hadn't even heard of the film before now so thank you for the suggestion


Anonymous2017-06-13 10:35:49
i think the Detroit Become Human - E3 2017 Trailer has Lorne Balfe his music as well. Sounds like his sound


Lussy2017-06-13 17:30:38
Trailer defiantly sounds like Balfe . The trailer last year they released for Detroit had his music and he was talking about it in twitter . Hard to be Beyond Two Souls. His music was unbelievable

The music sounds as if it was performed by an actual orchestra. Was it really? It shows no credits about it, only for the solo Violin and Cello o:


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-02 16:54:09
Nope it was not !

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 3 || 2015-03-26 08:39:06
This score will be released by Lakeshore soon... Love it, one of my favorite Lornes... :)


Blooshy2015-03-26 16:49:58
That's a definitive good new ;). More and more Balfe!


Felix2015-03-28 13:23:02

Hybrid Soldier2015-04-20 21:57:10
