Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?
me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.CD RELEASE?
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>

I recently bought this album, and I quite enjoy it.. But there's one big problem I have with it, along with most video game scores, it's the lack of thematic development. The biggest thing that frustrates me is that a composer will write a fantastic theme, only to have it pop up two or three times, or less. A lot of the assassin's creed scores suffer from this (aside from III and Unity). Ludvig composed an amazing main theme for Snake, first heard in "V Has Come To" and I was very excited on the first listen because I had been playing the game religiously in recognized the theme from the gameplay. As expected, the theme only appears a few times after the mentioned track. Its only appearances after track 2 are a brief moment in "You Can Call Me Ishmael", "Return", a very patriotic rendition in. "Shining Lights, Even In Death" and a final statement in the refrain during "Metal Gear Online. " regardless, I'd recommend for fans of Harry Gregson Williams's prior MSG scores. If anyone knows where I can locate some of the missing tracks, please share!

Even, you might want to check out the expanded soundtrack that was just put out digitally a couple of weeks ago.

I'll admit, I originally struggled a bit with this score, but with the recent release of that album, (which added over five hours of music), I decided to more thoroughly give it a go.

Its sound is fairly different compared to the past Metal Gear games, but after taking a while to adjust, I found it to be pretty brilliant. Thematically, I think it's actually very solid. The theme for Venom Snake is subtlety interwoven throughout most of the score. It just requires a bit of listening in some instances. It's definitely quoted a lot more than the tracks you pointed to.

Beyond the main theme though, there are some secondary themes that that really tighten things together, with the most illuminating being the numerous quotes of the Peacewalker theme from the past games that the first album mostly left out. It adds a ton of continuity that some people may find the first two disc set lacking.

I would definitely recommend though to anyone who might have found this to be a lukewarm listen to combine it with the second release, and take some time to digest the material. There's also supposed to be a third album coming out in March with the last few remaining tracks, so that should hopefully be pretty interesting too.

By great Annutseba, devourer of stars, ADDED FIVE HOURS OF MUSIC and they still want to put out a third release?

Jesus. Howard Shore would blush!

I was surprised by the release as well, given the length of the original album already put out, but some of the material on the extended set is absolutely essential if you're at all interested in the music here.

"We are Diamond Dogs"
"Regret and Acceptance"
"Paz is Dead"

Some of these tracks, after listening to them, left me absolutely flabbergasted that the first album didn't include them.

The cover dude looks like a cross-over between Ron Perlman and Tom Cruise lol
