So Hybrid, care to tell us why you randomly deleted comments talking about the leaked recording sessions?Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?
been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.
Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>You fools, the tracklist was but a scam. The tracks simply wanted to EAT you.Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.<br><br>I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.<br><br>I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.Not to disagree for its own sake, but I think Powell has been up there with the greatest film composers since the first HTTYD score. I just wish he'd take on more projects.Yeah, Jesus. This is a prime example of why I'm tempted to think John Powell is more talented than even Williams (yes, I went there).
There's so, so many great themes in the HTTYD scores. And he almost never lets a moment go by where he isn't stating or restating or developing one or more of them (although honestly that's true of a ton of Powell's scores and not an exclusive feature of HTTYD). You can never get bored listening to these, there's always something interesting around the next corner.I got confirmation HGW only wrote Haitian House Shootout (with the help of Mel Wesson). The same ideas were edited into the shorter cue Zoepound, so I'd say you can add this one to his credits.<br><br>Credits on IMDB mentions Paul Linford on the Main Titles.<br><br>Trevor Morris helped Jablonsky on the Ferrari Causeway Chase.<br>Jablonsky worked, for sure, on the Hallway and Helicopter Inserts.<br><br>100% sure Rabin worked on Tapia, Tapia Pissed Off, The Stuff, Wiretap Results, Ocean, Dead Bodies #2, Heart to Heart, Breaking Into Mortuary, Syd's Cover Is Blown, Tapia Has Syd (without Inserts), Prep for Tapia Sneak, Cuba Chase, Guantanamo (those tracks are on the Rabin only-bootleg).Hoping for the Rocketman score to get a release. Loved the score in the movie. Any updates on this ?Additionally, for anyone interested, I've managed to come up with a final list of themes from the series that I believe to be mostly accurate.<br><br>HTTYD 1: Hiccup & Toothless, The Friendship ostinato, Viking Theme, Viking "B" Theme, Dragons, Berk, The Dragon Tamer (Hiccup's unique qualities), Vikings & Dragons, Astrid<br><br>HTTYD 2: Loss, Exploration/Hiccup's Maturance, Drago, Hiccup & Valka, The Alpha, Stoick & Valka, The Chief<br><br>HTTYD 3: The Furies ostinato, Love, The Dragon Liberators, Moving On, The Hidden World, Toothless & The Light Fury, Grimmel, Dragon Trappers<br><br>A list more impressive than Star Wars, and with almost every new theme returning for the next film, while keeping most of the base themes. A masterful achievement by John Powell and his crew, as others have said!Just finished watching the movie, and while it's not much more than fine, it's sure as hell better than every other Star Wars movie that's come out since The Force Awakens (minus the ugly fucking visuals). <br><br>However the score is absolutely amazing. Powell's adaptation and development of the new Han Solo theme from Williams is flawless, the callbacks to other themes from the series are mostly appropriate (and good on him for not using the Force theme once!) and Powell's original material is fresh and exciting in a way that even Williams himself hasn't been able to pull off with the new films. <br><br>Powell might very well be up there with the greatest film composers if he continues to produce work like this from now on (which from HTTYD 3 seems very possible!)

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"

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.

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).
