I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.fail*Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(Saw Patriots Day, really liked it. But the score was lacking. Really wish Jablonsky had done this one.The sticker on the album says: <br>"The best of Hans Zimmer<br>+ selected by him*<br>+ new arranged<br>+ new recorded with top stars"<br><br>*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.
Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme. <br><br>Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.<br><br>2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to. <br><br>I think that is about it.Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.i really like that end song. very nice melody. would be cool to have it on cd.Hi all, stunning music out here, I am so fancy in Hans music.<br>Anyone has a clue what is the Menu music from Blu-ray edition of PE II? I am pretty sure I have heard it before, Shazam can't find it, I am guessing ... By the time I was looking deep in my memory I remembered :) It is "Arrival of the Birds"<br>Look at the dates mate :)
whose idea was this release.<br><br>Some of the tracks are actually abysmal. I thought hans hated his name being slapped on shit exploitative releases like this.It would seem that it is the digital version that contains 20 tracks. There seems to be only one cd version with 18 tracks.The Tour Dates don´t open in the site.<br>There's a new tracklist here :)I like the new interpretations of Hans Zimmer's music. But they also could have been uploaded here like the fans arrangements.
Any new of  Sean Penn's The Last Face soundtrack ??This is really, really an unimportant release. Mombasa, played by 2Cellos, is the only one, which sounds kind of interesting, the rest is absolutely boring and doesn't add any value to Hans Zimmers work.Season 1 soundtrack will be available on  itunes tomorrow. Hurry up before they take it down again.This is fantastic! Really great look at the un-glamorous side of composing lol.India someday sir?<br>Huge fan of u sir

God, Spotify is so messed up! It credits all the orchestrators as the composers of the score. Hans is not even mentioned.


Zimson2014-05-19 21:30:25
Same with Thin Red Line btw. It's credited to Gavin Greenaway.
I already contacted Spotify and they responded that they would take care of that problem, but didn't do anything about it, lol. I was told that they get all their information from the publishers.

I just watched the featurette about the music on the Gladiator blu-ray, it was very, very interesting and... my God, Hans looked so young, I couldn't believe my eyes.

Watch this interview, then watch the interviews he gave about Man Of Steel last year, it's a completely different world!


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-17 15:36:17
I personally prefer the "now" Hans ! Much cooler ! :)

Hey guys go to HZ's main page and check our recent media player addition (also works for CD pages like here) ! It's pretty cool ! Still adding some ! :)


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-31 00:48:21
Whoa! What's going on with the banner at the top of this page? "original-soundtrack"? "No longer with RCP"? And why is it only over this one? And does it mean there might be pages for non-RCP scores at this site? So many questions!! AAARGH!


isildur2014-01-31 00:57:22
The media player is nice. Will you be adding more tracks to it? Like one each from Hans' all movie scores?

And +1 to Ed's post. What does that mean?


Mike2014-01-31 01:08:17
Cool! Nothing like being able to hear some of Zimmer's music, in full, on this site. I like it!


Mike2014-01-31 01:11:23
DUDE!! YOU UPLOADED THE TRANSFIGURATION SUITE FROM TDKR! THANK YOU!!! I've been wanting to hear that! :D


Mike2014-01-31 01:20:48
Okay, I'm so sorry to keep posting like a spazz, but you also uploaded Tick Tock from A Game of Shadows in the right tempo! :D Thanks a lot for this!

Never heard it before but "Celebrate The Oscars" is a really an awesome track :)

Gosh....that Transfiguration suite is really cool......still listening to it. lol.


Mike2014-01-31 02:13:22
And I never would have realized that a couple parts of Chasing the Convoy East are lifted directly out of it.

I would be eternally grateful if someone could make it avaliable on the most-not-be-named site. Please guys...


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-31 07:40:55
LOL Edmund the thing is because Klaus is attached to the page, that's all LOL...


And yeah my point is to add one track per project (of my choosing lol)...

When I'm done with Hans I will with the rest.


Mike2014-01-31 23:43:28
I thought Discombobulate was a Lorne Balfe arrangement of Hans' theme? Or are you not just putting up exclusively-Hans Zimmer arrangements?

I'm having trouble telling...does "To Zucchabar" use the "Duduk of the North" theme or does it just sound similar?

How much did Zimmer have to do with "Il Gladiatore" performed by Luciano Pavarotti?

Zimson reply Replies: 7 || 2013-12-17 14:28:49
"Elysium (2:41)
Lisa Gerrard, Klaus Badelt"

Does that mean Now We Are Free is actually from Badelt?


Mike2013-12-18 18:59:52
Hans and Badelt, I think. Because look, "Elysium" lists Badelt only, while "Now We Are Free" lists Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt. I think with Now We Are Free, Zimmer took what Badelt did in Elysium and used it.


Zimson2013-12-18 19:19:59
Yeah but basically it would be Badelt's theme then, like "He's a Pirate" is Zimmer's theme.


Hybrid Soldier2013-12-18 19:28:56
Klaus wrote the early version of Now We Are Free with Lisa, that was dropped...


Then for the final version there's Hans theme used...


Zimson2013-12-18 19:45:09
I know, the famous "Daa Da Da Daam" is by Hans. But I never knew that the rest of the track is actually Badelt's work.


Mike2013-12-18 21:05:02
Me neither, Zimson.

Where do you go on his site to find these additional tracks? I can't find them for the life of me.

It's been on Klaus's site for more than 2 months ! :o


Mr Tweedy2011-08-18 09:30:16
I expect a lot more "bootlegs" for both MI2, Pearl Harbor and Gladiator to pop up soon, that will include these unreleased tracks. (Eyes rolling...)


Smith2011-08-18 10:12:29
@Hybrid: yeah, so why doesn't tell us then, if they were so long now on his website? always enjoying this beautiful music for yourself is stupid.


PH fan2011-08-18 15:26:31
Too bad the "Air Battle" cues are still the same synth demos... or are my ears wrong?? Wish the actual orchestral versions would surface!


Hybrid Soldier2011-08-18 15:29:58
My dear Mr. Tweedy, I'm waiting for your exposé regarding that "synth" matter... ;)

:P


ph fan2011-08-18 19:07:15
Damn Badelt has some nice MI2 tracks! Not sure where most of them lie within the film though... sound mostly like suites or alternates.


Mr Tweedy2011-08-18 19:30:01
Dear Hybrid, here is my "exposé" ! =)

The film version of Air Battle (the "orchestral version") is such a mess. The recording session of this track was pure chaos : some instruments are playing wrong notes (trumpets !), the cue sounds very weak (small orchestra) and especially rushed (last minute change ?).

I'm glad Klaus put his original synth mock up on his website instead of the film version... of course it's not exactly what you hear in the movie, but at least these are (nearly) the same notes, it has some raw power with Zimmer's trademark orchestral samples, the "waltz part" which was unreleased until now, is eventually available... I don't see any reason to complain here !

@Smith
I think Hybrid is doing his fair part of contribution to the Zimmer fan community (Inception bonus tracks, anyone?). Finding some new source of music doesn't mean claiming it to everybody here within the next few minutes... especially when you know that most people here are gonna make bootleg CDs out of these new cues and share them on forums, not even buying Zimmer CDs and so on...


Cobb2011-08-18 23:58:45
@ hybrid yeah anything on more music from inception yet?


Levraibond2011-08-19 08:23:27
I love Klaus Badelt website! Their are a lot of new tracks for TMNT too! Looks like the full edition contains 44 tracks and the website gives you 32 but it's better then nothing :-P

Jimmer2011-07-31 20:31:41
This is one of Zimmer's greatest works. Even though he may have copied Holst's The Planets for some of the cues, this soundtrack cannot be topped and the track "Honor Him" is one the greatest themes to ever come out of Hans' mind.

That's pretty cool. "Strength And Honor" is my favorite track from this album, and it was really really late at night when I was watching the deleted scenes, so I thought I was just hearing things. But it's really in there....

@ Dakota

Yeah apparently someone likes Zimmer and Co. enough to use their music as temp music for the deleted scenes. I also heard some John Powell from what I think was from The Bourne Identity or Supremacy. Not too sure unless I'm completely wrong. Then there was a track from The Thin Red Line in there too.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-08 00:00:00
If anyone has the Extended Collector's Edition of Avatar, there's a deleted scene on Pandora that uses the track "Strength And Honor" from this Soundtrack.

Hybrid, couple of things.

1.) I like that each track is listed as to who did what, so thank you.
2.) Wikipedia states (I take info from wiki with a grain of salt, as anyone with a grudge against Hans could have added it) that Hans was sued beacuse "the music for many of the battle scenes has been noted as similar to Gustav Holst's 'Mars: The Bringer of War', and in June 2006, the Holst Foundation sued Hans Zimmer for allegedly copying the late Gustav Holst's work.' Is this true?
3.) Where is the COMPLETE score for Gladiator? There is a 3-disc with 21 tracks on each disc. I have it, but I'm just wondering why it's not on the site. I see it everywhere, literally.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-18 00:00:00
Yeah, they sued...

Though, to me, it was a bit ridiculous... Of course the Gladiator Waltz is inspired by Holst's Mars, but there's definitely no plagiarism. I mean, if THIS is plagiarism, then a million of film score composers, the Horners, Williams, JNHs or Poledouris should have been sued for ripping classical music... :P


And as for that bootleg... Well, I know how it's made... But I think there are enough fake Gladiator complete scores on this site... :P

I only add real things... :P
