Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris
Does anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.

Wow...really what I wasn't expecting...I'll pass.


Russel2015-07-22 08:11:58
I love them, thanks!


KT Koskela2015-07-22 11:52:17
While I wish Jackman and Columbus'd gone the Gremlins route and made this an 80s-style orchestra/synth hybrid funfest, I'm happy with what I'm hearing.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 9 || 2015-07-16 02:22:12
(sighs) When do you think we'll be getting some samples of this score?


Russel2015-07-17 04:57:49
We got some today, courtesy of Varese Sarabane's YouTube channel!


KT Koskela2015-07-17 15:29:31
Y'sure? Could you try to put up someway to the link?


KT Koskela2015-07-17 15:58:03
Never mind, I found the link. Thanks!


Russel2015-07-17 17:42:51
Links not allowed on here, I think. Glad you found it!


Hybrid Soldier2015-07-17 18:45:58
Illegal links are...


For the rest it's fine if it's relevant... :)


meta2015-07-17 22:48:45
wasnt what i was hoping to hear...sounds more swashbuckly than video gamey....


Anonymous2015-07-17 23:04:02
Excuse me but where is the link?


Boldizar 2015-07-18 06:38:20
My thoughts exactly. For a movie about video games this score sample sure sounds like a generic 90s adventure film.


meta2015-07-19 04:58:01
and the track lengths are even shorter...oy vey

It's a private link for now, but on type in YouTube's address and add watch?v=CmS3YAzyWj4 after the slash.

Every time I see a trailer for this movie I get annoyed, because the premise is so stupidly awesome and parts of it look really cool...but I just can't STAND Adam Sandler or pretty much anything he's associated with. Peter Dinklage must owe someone money or somethign.

Henry Jackman's a good choice for this, though, looking forward to hearing more Wreck-it Ralph 8-bit-orchestral-action fusion stuff.


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-28 21:44:16
Totally agree Ed, 100%...

I will see this film... But I just CAN'T with Adam Sandler... I just hope he's buried under the rest in this film... lol


Kusi2015-06-28 22:18:28
I agree with you about Sandler :-S but I'll have to watch this film too. One argument: The score and the other is the topic. I've grown up with this games and I'm still loving Nintendo games :)


Brent2015-06-29 07:10:45
I feel like Jackman's career has led up to this. Wreck-It Ralph + Captain America + This is the End = Pixels. Lol.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 3 || 2015-06-28 00:57:48
Yay, details!

Now to wait a long while for a preview track to listen to before the score comes out.


Anonymous2015-06-28 06:09:09
This film had some decent poster artworks. Why the heck did it come down to this artwork for the album?


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-28 10:01:05
Because a cover with people on it means a lot of paperwork... I guess they wanted to avoid that... lol


KT Koskela2015-06-28 17:12:17
And besides, it's the music contained inside the soundtrack that matters, not the cover for the soundtrack.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 0 || 2015-06-17 13:47:08
Awesome. I've been waiting to see if this would be getting a score album.

And from what I've heard of the score, it certainly sounds like a good one to listen to.
