May know how to downloaddamn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOLYeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photo
Hah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.I like the tracks
Wow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2That recording footage makes it all the more baffling to me why the end product sounds the way it does.
I understand the comments about the orchestra sounding like samples by some of the comments?<br><br>If you follow his Twitter you see the BBC orchestra recording the soundtrack.Season two is cool and Balfe’s music is bigger that season 1.Bit choirs also.I love Hillbilly also but it sounds very familiar just with different guitar instruments.Paradise is so emotional and sonically more interesting to me at leastI find Hillbilly more engaging than Paradise, even much interesting dramatic cues.Memorial is heart wrenching.<br>Definitely up there for this years scores.Fantastic music but Balfe and Zimmer.You can hear their different styles in this music.<br>Very beautiful soundtrack

looks like there is gonna be a lot missing

unless this is not a OSTheavy movie


Hybrid Soldier2015-10-02 20:12:20
No from what I heard it has a loooot of songs... Not that much score... A first in Ridley's career... lol


...2015-10-03 00:36:15
It's true. There is almost like 50% songs. It works though but I would have liked to hear more score of course!


Everan2015-10-04 17:42:47
There's a 2 CD set coming, but I think it will only add the songs used, which isn't so bad really. Maybe it could have some additional tracks, you never know.
It's up in Amazon as Deluxe Soundtrack, it's coming November 6


Ds2015-10-07 22:24:16
Well it's certainly not 50% of songs, far from it. There are a few songs here and there (and actually most of the time it's just an extract). The main core of the music is Harry's wonderful score. Needless to say, the tracklist is mostly out of order, and there's much more than 50min of score. Most of the unreleased cues are variations on the released tracks, but there are a few great unreleased cues as well.

Absolutely awesome movie, by the way. It seems like now we get an amazing space movie at the end of each year. And always with great music!!


JamesT2015-10-08 03:52:00
I'm LOVING this score -- one of HGW's best IMO. The movie was superb, too. Harry has mentioned in several interviews that the score was about 80 mins, which seems right to me given multiple listens and having seen the film. The book was extremely technical in places and I thought Ridley and the screenwriter did a great job translating those complex elements into simple science viewers could relate to. All of the essential pieces of the score are there, thankfully. I remember hearing about a five min track that was excellent that played when NASA and Watney were communicating that I wish had been included. I think the thematic material is excellent -- reminds me of some parts of Light It Up. I hear some Spy Game elements, too. Going to see it again this weekend!

"Making Water"... the texture of this track is amazing!!


Anonymous2015-10-02 08:34:27
It is, though at times it feels like it is taking a page or two from Man of Steel.


Mike2015-10-02 18:24:17
+2. Good stuff. It also has a "Finding Nemo" sound to me, in a way.


isildur2015-10-03 02:09:57
"Sprouting Potatoes" too. Beautiful little track. Should have been longer though.


Brent2015-10-03 08:25:23
Mike, interesting you mention Nemo. I swear I was listening to Wall-E. Lol. Great score, though.


Mike2015-10-05 15:08:06
Wall-E —an even better comparison. ;)
