Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip
...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scores
This score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me
@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04.

While waiting for "13 Hours", I'm replaying all the Lorne stuff I have on my computer... I didn't really pay attention to this one when it came out, but it's so nice and catchy. Lorne amazes me more and more, and I think the best is yet to come!


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-10 15:57:25
Yep very underrated one... :)

I added a suite... Check this out, it's great... :)


Mike2015-03-26 21:26:34
Very nice.

I gotta say, it's pretty cool that Hans Zimmer's methods allow composers like Lorne to get their own careers kickstarted. asking this honestly, would anyone know about Lorne Balfe if he hadn't worked with Hans all those years?


Leo2015-03-27 10:00:03
Alexandre Desplat doesn't work for RCP, and he's one of the busiest and most well known composers working in Hollywood today.


rockhound2015-03-28 10:27:50
sounds wonderful. nice orchestration and very catchy themes. a lil bit john powell style i would say. i have to say, i prefer the orchestral balfe than the synth balfe, although this music sounds like a very good mix of both.


JamesT2015-03-30 02:42:33
This is a great suite!!! Fun, fun music.

Hybrid: on another note, do you know anything about a soundtrack for Killing Jesus, The Woman In Gold, or A.D.?


Anonymous2015-04-04 20:00:13
I love the first cue that appears in the suite until around 3:20. Is that "Symphony In Oh"?


Mike2015-04-04 20:15:32
Yeah, this score has some very fun music. Though I can't help thinking of Kung Fu Panda 2 with some of it! :P


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-04 20:30:27
Yes it is the first track ! :)


rockhound2015-04-12 19:23:36
i love this score. what a wonderful music. very thematic, excited, playful and emotional. lovely orchestral score by lorne.

Who's Stargate? O:


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-17 08:59:32
Stargate is the band who wrote the songs...

The official movie credit is Music by LB & Stargate... So it's like that on the cover, but there's nothing of theirs in the score... It's all LB...


Leo2015-04-17 17:33:57
Songs =/= Score

it's a little different I must say, lol

The artwork just got approved, it should be out in a couple of weeks... :)

And yes Lorne is scoring Terminator 5... lol


ggctuk2015-03-26 11:16:27
An interesting turn of events indeed. I wonder what kind of score it will be like. I confess to being completely unaware of his works because I've never watched or played anything he scored. I kind of hope for a synthetic influence, actually, to harken back to the Brad Fiedel days.


Bioscope2015-03-26 15:44:38
I think this could be brilliant. the darkest moments in Transformers 2 featured his contributions, if I am right. He is comfortable with scoring mechanised characters.


Anonymous2015-03-26 22:05:31
right. just like daft punk "scored" tron legacy. lorne balfe will score one of the biggest american franchises ever. he'll have help.


ggctuk2015-03-26 22:15:03
Perhaps it's just me being naive, but I'm also hoping for a proper version of the Terminator theme. Elfman was told not to do it in the last one and Beltrami did do a full version but it only got used in the end credits.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-26 22:33:53
What's that supposed to mean, Anonymous? Lorne Balfe is an actual film composer, not a pop/electronica group - why the skepticism?

Whether he'll have help or not is a separate question. This is RC after all. And there's no problem with that.


ggctuk2015-03-26 23:19:08
I'm told Zimmer will be taking an "executive music producer" credit.


Anonymous2015-03-27 02:30:07
daft punk did not do as much on legacy as they get credited for. zimmer was paid a huge hush hush check for his involvement which was very heavy. i work in the industry so i know it's true. but i am sure this hybrid soldier will tell you otherwise

zimmer will no doubt do most of the work for terminator 5. this makes me happy though. it's how tron legacy turned out to be so awesome


thejok3rrules2015-03-27 06:34:02
Conspiracy theories everywhere, I guess.


Zimson2015-03-27 07:20:45
The fact that you're trying to tell us you have secret insights into RCP no one else has because you "work in the industry" is somewhat ridiculous.
It's true that even composers such as JNH work as ghost writers for big studio or music productions from time to time but that doesn't compensate for a reputable source you obviously don't have.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-27 08:14:22
But the Tron situation is different. I think it's not that surprising to hear that an electronica duo with zero experience in film scoring or orchestral music had a bit of help behind the scenes - honestly, I'd have been more surprised had they NOT had help.

But Balfe has been around for a while and done tons of scores proving his ability in a lot of different situations. I'm not ruling out that someone, even Zimmer, may eventually end up contributing to that Terminator flick with the stupid name (this is 2015 Hollywood film scoring after all - the notion of a solo score is becoming kind of quaint), but there's no reason to treat it with the same skepticism as Tron.


Boldizar2015-03-27 13:49:45
So Genysis dropped Beck?


Anonymous2015-03-27 19:47:21
well thats exactly it edmund. there was no way disney was going to hire to musicians who have never composed for film before for a film of that magniude. same thing happened with star dust and many other films. think ramin djawadi did iron man all by himself? zimmer helped. a lot.

but i think zimmer will end up doing all the heavy lifting for terminator. sure lorne is a successful composer but name one big film hes scored, one as big as terminator. one where he did nearly all the work and had little to no help. none. but i am very curious to hear what becomes of it. nevertheless i am very excited to hear what zimmer and balfe come up with


Macejko2015-03-27 20:12:37
We know pretty much everything there is to know about Iron Man and every other score-wise troubled production that involved RCP, Anonymous. You are bringing sand to Sahara.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-27 23:15:07
Dude, just because Zimmer has helped out on a handful of tricky situations in the past does NOT guarantee that he's going to do it on Terminator! Why the heck are you so sure of yourself?

And Balfe may not have any solo action tentpoles to his name, but he does have some fairly big animated movies and - more importantly - has worked on practically every Zimmer score of the last decade or so (including some HUGE stuff like Inception, Dark Knight and Pirates...the sort of things this Terminator flick dreams of being as successful as). I have no doubt that the people who decided to hire him are aware of that last fact. He's hardly this untested newcomer you're making him out to be!


thejok3rrules2015-03-28 18:20:27
Lorne has also handled two Assassin's Creed scores, which are major projects, so I'm not surprised he's been given the chance of scoring T5.

Plus, nor the director or the producers of Genesys give a shit about the music in this one. The whole project's only purpose is to make millions with something people know and (used to) love. There's no creativity required for Terminator: Genesys, they could have picked anybody else.

I do wish Lorne Balfe does great. (As I l know he can)


mpolonest1232015-03-28 19:18:49
Genesys is just going to be another big cash grab, milking whatever little value this series has left.

As far as Lorne scoring this, I'm fairly excited. He did a fantastic job on Beyond: Two Souls which people always seem to forget exists. And if memory serves me right, Zimmer also produced that score.


Ds2015-03-28 22:10:53
Lol it looks like absolutely nobody is expecting this movie. I wonder if it´s going to bomb. It looks so bad and uninspired, and its director is responsible for the worst Marvel movie to date... I bet Lorne's music will be the only good thing in this movie.


NotSoAnonymous2015-03-29 01:49:22
@Ds, What Marvel movie are you referring to?


NotSoAnonymous2015-03-29 01:51:54
Nevermind. I thought we were talking about Tim Johnson (Home)


Boldizar 2015-03-29 22:49:04
I was extremely turned off by the idea for more Terminator films... Then I saw the trailer. I actually think Genisys has the potential to be really good. I get the feeling whomever wrote the script actually found an interesting spin on it.


Ds2015-03-29 23:46:37
Well for me it´s just the opposite, it´s when I saw the trailer that I realized how bad it looked like :-p


ggctuk2015-03-30 10:48:36
It can't be any worse than the previous two films. And it does seem to be offering something different to the previous films anyway. The idea seems to be the idea presented in the first film that the future is "one possible future" instead flipped around so that the future is set, but the past is "one possible past". It's an intriguing idea, as are some of the ideas alleged to be what we'll get in the film (I won't spoil those here).

The big discussion here, though, is the score. I'm hoping for a better presentation of the main theme, there's now the chance to properly reprise the T-1000 motif as well. I'm thinking that the approach should be something like an inbetween of Elfman's score for Salvation and Trond Viggo-Melsen's music for the Salvation video game.
