Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.<br><br>On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack
In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modern
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.
Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..

While I’m not crazy about the film, I’m surprised no one really talks about this score. Both Zimmer and Phipp’s sections are equally strong, with the Zimmer parts being so much darker in tone.

“Fleeing Vienna” is such an intense cue, especially in context.


Mike2018-08-28 03:21:14
I'm curious about the "Open the Door" cue... Did Hans and Martin Phipps work together on it, or did one of them have a cue partly written and the other guy came in and added to it?

Also, Hybrid, you have the "Maria Altman" track credited to HZ and Martin Phipps on your Youtube channel. It's just Phipps here. Which credit is correct?


Daniel2018-08-28 15:44:26
If interested, here's my cut out film version of 'Fleeing Vienna'

Hybrid Soldier2018-08-28 19:47:40
"Maria Altman" is Phipps... I uploaded that long before the score was out. Never changed the title, but it's Phipps.

Hans really just wanted to score all the "flashback" sequences.


...2018-08-28 20:40:35
This release is rather complete right? There’s nothing missing from
Hans from what I can see.

I have seen the movie and the score works very well. I also figured out how the two composers approached this. The movie primarily plays in 1999, but it has flashbacks to the time of WW2. Phipps primarily composed the music for 1999 and Hans did the music for the WW2 period scenes. Hans stands for the darker cues.


Hybrid Soldier2015-08-08 15:03:16
Absolutely ! I noticed that as well ! :)


garavel2015-08-08 18:08:38
what is that WW2 ?


Mike2015-08-08 18:12:30
"World War 2"

funny that hans's part is the weakest part of the score


Anonymous2015-07-01 04:12:13
Incorrect. And if you don't hear his influence in Track #5, you are really missing something.

Has anyone listened to this yet?

I just finished the album and honestly, it's a strange one. Have to relisten to make a final opinion.


Ds2015-05-31 14:31:02
Listened to it yesterday, didn't really like it. It sounds like a minor work from Hans. It's not bad but not the kind of soundtrack I like to listen out of context. And overall I think Phipps' tracks are better than Hans'.


...2015-05-31 14:38:35
Maria Altman and Fleeing Vienna are the best cues on the album in my opinion.


Anonymous2015-06-01 04:18:58
OMG Ds!!! How dare you say you don't like a Hans Zimmer soundtrck on this website. Don't you realize the amount of Zimmer worshiping drone-trolls that frequent this site? Prepare to be tortured, persecuted and kicked in the gut (figuratively of course). That's what happened to me when I dared to say I didn't care for Interstellar. Just saying.


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-01 08:56:01
Oh my good God, Anonymous, let that go already.


Ds2015-06-01 18:22:09
Anonymous, actually I felt a bit ashamed of writing that. It's the first time in my life I don't feel anything when listening to a Zimmer score. Usually I'm moved or entertained or blown away, but here I felt nothing. I'll go see a doctor ;-)


...2015-06-01 21:11:30
Hybrid, do you know if zimmer helped write the maria altman track? I saw on some website that he was credited for that track but I must say I doubt it as most sites say he didn't.

Why is it so simple? But still enjoyable. Maybe because I love his music.

I assume these credits are not complete just yet, but are instead simply breaking down which one worked on each track?

Anonymous reply Replies: 1 || 2015-05-06 15:36:08
So where did this collaboration come from? Are Zimmer and Phipps friends, did the director think, "Gee, we really want Hans' style for *insert scenes here*," or was Zimmer originally attached to this project and then he wanted Phipps to come on board? Or did Phipps request Zimmer?

It just seems out of the ordinary. :P


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-06 15:44:08
The film was produced in the UK, they needed a London based composer to work with. Phipps had worked for those producers before.

Both composers came in pretty late to score it, after october (score recorded in January), and Hans was in the middle of Chappie (and in LA for the most part).

Leo reply Replies: 4 || 2015-04-22 06:51:40
Is this a real piece from the score?

I like it. Hybrid, you said this wasn't a "normal" collaboration or something like that...what did you mean?
