Olive - it totally is unwarranted. <br><br>Your points are very un-educated .<br><br>Ask yourself this .... why has Balfe worked on every Transformere film ?The Majority of Zimmerís films in the last 15 years and according to ASCAP been an equal composer .Captain Philips for Jackman.Ironman for Ramin .....<br><br><br>Okay, I'll wait for the more detailed credits in the release.Yeah, Mazzaro and AK would be more interesting choices, even Balfe.<br><br>Maybe Zimmer has more confidence in Wallfisch? He delivered Verbinsky's "Cure" gratuitously for him and then tied him up on two of his major projects last year.<br><br>When I refer to security, I talk about the "assurance of delivering a good job".Olive - wrong.Balfe has said it is used in the film on Twitter.Geostorm is fun, with a nostalgic nods to the old MV scores.<br><br>And much better than 12 Strong
I know this story... It would be good if JP were like HZ in his public promises. xD<br><br>Well, the fact that Djawadi was not mentioned in the credits confirms that Balfe had not used the theme written by him, right?About the score: Dunkirk's unimaginative copy (regardless of who is the lead author of the Nolan movie score).<br><br>Lego, really, was one of the best scores for animation last year. Churchill is a good accompaniment to the film and Genius is a fun listening with many moments that catch the ear.<br><br>Unfortunately, 12 strong and Geostorm were disappointing, but it is normal for any composer's career to have ups and downs, especially when working with so many numbers in a single year.<br><br>I agree with Mike that there is a very clear difference from when Hans is on a project and when one of his assistants goes to work alone. Pirates, WW and even Tarzan are there as more recent examples, all excellent scores, but you know there's something missing there.<br><br>On the problem with "hate" for Balfe, it is not unwarranted. It is a reaction to the exaggerated attention he has received over the past year, which overlaps with that received by other composers who work with universes with fan platforms far superior to those in which Balfe works. Jablonsky has the billion dollar franchise of the Transformers, Djawadi GoT and Henry Jackman has worked with the Marvel movies. Even Powell's entrance to SW might have made some noise, but nothing. None of these projects received such warm reception from the members of this site as Balfe's latest projects (with the exception of HZ, of course). That bothers me a little.<br><br>Curious to know what he will do with "Pacific Rim".<br><br>A lot of the time when a score's final action/battle sequence is split up among several tracks I edit them together into one track myself in Audacity. The most recent example was Black Panther with "The Great Mound Battle/Glory to Bast/The Jabari, Pt II". And my edit of the final battle music from King Arthur runs nearly 15 minutes. Maybe something similar will be possible for the last few tracks of this score.yeah that's just one though. We'll see!! no info on a release date, on lornes twitter it says it's coming out very soon.
"Shatterdome Attacked", at least we'll get one 7-minute action cue...<br><br>Also. TRACKLIST YOU GET DID WHERE???An agent isn't the problem. Powell is choosing to work less, and only on certain types of movies.Damn the tracks are really short, i was hoping for some long epic music. Hopefully he'll deliver on the epic (I'm sure he will)Giacchino has some points about Powell because of the variety of his work. The man works on several beloved franchises through the pubic and every year makes some score for Pixar. From Powell, so far we've only had Bourne and the animated films from Dreamworks and Blue Sky. That's the only problem with him. The lack of a good agent to get projects beyond the territory conquered by him in the mid-00's.where got you did tracklist have been?
Where did you get the tracklist ???????Where you get the tracklist?<br><br>;)Ian<br>I would rather choose Giacchino over Powell any day.<br>Don't get me wrong, Powell is great but always found Giacchino's Scores much more memorable.<br>The only score made by Powell that i keep listening is Bourne's Supremacy.Ian<br>I would rather choose Giacchino over Powell any day.<br>Don't get me wrong, Powell is great but always found Giacchino's Scores much more memorable.<br>The only score made by Powell that i keep listening is Bourne's Supremacy.And @Ian, re: talent of assistants, to add to your point... Kick It was, according to Hybrid, Hansí theme turned into a suite by Balfe...so even there, with his interesting stuff, the nucleus of it is still Zimmer. If youíre talking about Training from Begins for Djawadi, ditto there. Hans said that was the first theme he (Hans) wrote for the movie. So in both cases, these guys kinda sound best when expanding on Hansí ideas.

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
Yes, more Balfe, I love his music so much!


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-20 21:57:10
