Olive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!
I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.
Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.
@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...

There is no language - It's just vocalizations by Gerrard (in other words, total gibberish).

Part of so called "Gladiator Waltz" is also used in another NGS project, Attila.

Did Nick Glennie Smith really compose Barbarian Horde??

Mr Tweedy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-11-09 00:00:00
Well there's a difference between *composing* and *arranging*. I mean, Zimmer *composed* the Gladiator Waltz, which is some kind of source or inspiration for the whole score. That means that anybody using the material from the Waltz in another cue (The Battle, Barbarian Horde...) is making an arrangement.
Then, Barbarian Horde being pretty much a copy/paste of many segments of the Gladiator Waltz, we can assume Nick Glennie-Smith *arranged* (and not *composed*) a bit of that cue...

Is that... clear ? :P

Words can not express the passion and the inter-soul this song "now we are free" contains. Its the inter-feelling of my life. The song will be use to celebrate the ending of my life and will be played to all that honors me.

I loved this record!
I listened to this so many times before I saw the movie and had to watch the movie a couple times before I actually paid attention to what was going on instead of just listening to the music.

my favorites are The Battle, Barbarian Horde and Now We Are Free. Absolutely gorgeous music! This is probably my favorite of Zimmer's scores, though the choice is quite tough as all his music is one masterpiece after another!

I'm glad I found someone who really appreciates this kind of music, like I do. You've put into words the heart of Hans Zimmers songs. My English was not sufficient enough to do that... So thank you James, you're completely right!

I wish Hans Zimmer a lot of success, and I hope many will be touched by his music.

I feel the same way when I hear "Now We Are Free" (Gladiator theme song). I think when we hear music like this we are experiencing the seeds of our destiny being touched inside of us! It touches something from beyond this world.

I'm fifteen years old. I listen to music like Justin Timberlake, Maroon5 and so on.

But when I first heard the music of Gladiator, I was moved. When I watched the movie a second time, I closed my eyes. Without seeing what happened, I wept. Me, a boy of 15 years old, who surely doesn't weep a lot. This has never happened to me, in my life. Music that can make someone weep, is so much stronger than the words you use to express yourself. Music can express what really goes on inside you, it can move your soul. Mr Hans Zimmer has that gift.
He's a living legend.

PS: What we do in life, echoes in eternity...

What could I say? This is one of the masterpieces of the soundtrack-master. This is my favourite soundtrack from Hans Zimmer. The complete score and the more music CD is also fantastic. The best track is The Battle. Zimmer has done it very good.

I wish Hans Zimmer and the all members of the Remote Control good luck to making so good soundtracks like this!

This music is obviously kind of his staple. Everyone knows it, and everyone loves it. I love it as well, as I love all of Mr. Zimmer's work. You just feel reborn when you hear it. I can't say it enough: Great work Mr. Zimmer!
