Edmund ! For YOU !! lolthis one is my pick for the oscar as well. hope it wins : )When will this tracklist be leaked?I heard and thought that Zimmer stopt scoring superhero movies (including Justice League and what comes after) because it has taken 13 years of his life and he wanted to do something elseWere the two men no longer talking or did Zimmer anticipate Snyder's departure as he did in Pirates?
@Olive: Rumors says Zimmer didn't want compose Justice League because of Snyder, and left behind JunkieI agree that Elfman's theme fits into Nolan's films as long as they are adapted to them. However, I think the way things have gone was not bad. TDK trilogy was marked as a project fruit of Nolan's unique vision. Although the themes do not respect the orchestral tradition are more memorable than those composed for more than half of the films of heroes of the last 25 years.Zimmer's entry into the genre can be interpreted as a breath of fresh air in a saturated marketplace at the time. But I agree that the lack of originality these days falls on Zimmer and his company and that the goal of it goes far beyond bringing talents to light.Now we need something new, again.@Hybrid any news on Season 2 soundtrack release?Of cause Balfe worked on it !!! His whole team are credited !!!!!!!Honestly, the purpose of RCP is essentially to take Zimmer's style and make it widespread for use...WB not using ANY RCP to score this seems to have been deliberate, as there's literally no reason it couldn't be done.
^ hahaha :D<br><br>I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings?They're starting to send screeners. Finger crossed for the FYC :DThe score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmerís Superman theme, something we havenít heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.
Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.

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 óan even better comparison. ;)
