Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.
Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...
The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.
I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolingerthats trueCan't think of a more meaningless and laughable award than the Oscar.

Lol as if the initial CD wasn't boring enough.

Holkenborg should have pushed for a release of his Point Break score instead, which was more of the same but at least fun to listen at!

Laurens reply Replies: 2 || 2016-02-12 14:02:44
Okay it's been a few days and the score should be out in America too now, right? I saw the movie yesterday and I have to say that it is a very, very good movie. But... I have the tendency to say that if I had not listened to the score before I saw the movie, I would not have noticed the music that much. I mean, the non-score songs play very noticeable, but Junkies (action) cues are very fast paced due to the way the movie is edited. And while this fast-pacing works very well for the storytelling (lots of flashbacks and "wait, let's pause this for a minute"-moments), the music kind of suffers from this. I noticed this in the soundtrack, too... It just feels like the score can't get going. Every time the drums and synths kick in, it's over very quickly. That's such a shame because when you hear Junkies awesome cues, you don't want them to stop. And then, obviously, there is the underscore, which is, well, underscore... It sounds fine in the movie but you probably won't remember any of it.
It would've been nice if there was a Deadpool-suite or something, because Junkie created some very nice themes for the character, but it feels like they can't express fully due to the movies tempo.


Ds2016-02-12 23:50:03
I had pretty much the same impression. It's not bad but it's not a satisfying listening experience.

Since the adverts thats all I keep hearing when I hear Deadpool....

Pity the score meanders...

This is a one star score... So disappointing :(


Laurens2016-02-07 23:44:04
Yeah well I just got through my first listen and I am kind of disappointed too... I feel like Maximum Effort and Twelve Bullets are the main two stand-out action tracks, but they're on the very short side and did not blow me away like Blood Bag, Brothers in Arms, Chapter Doof, The Bog, go on and on... Maybe Man in a Red Suit can be up there too, but honestly I did not hear a lot of memorable tracks first time round... Might change obviously, just my initial reaction. However, I would have preferred to have a lot more music from Junkie and less Tarantino-like 'soundtrack'. I mean, I don't know how the existing songs play out in the film as I haven't seen it yet, but I could have done without some of those songs. And I don't know if it's my headophones (I hope not :) ) but it sounds like the album is mastered too loud so sometimes there is clearly some distortion/clipping going on. Could be intentional but it kind of starts to bother me. I'm going to try some other sound systems to verify this.


mpolonest1232016-02-08 01:49:42
Have to agree with you here. The action music, for the most part, is pretty fun when Junkie lets loose with the electronics (Maximum Effort, Twelve Bullets, Watership Down). I'll even say there are some genuinely pretty moments scattered throughout (Liam Neeson Nightmares, Face I would Sit On).

Unfortunately the biggest downfall of this soundtrack is a lot of the underscore. Junkie's strength definitely lies in his themes, but utilizing them is definitely not his strong suit. I would say half of the music functions well, while the rest kinda falls flat. And the biggest problem; the drums. The 80's style synth works amazing but is overshadowed by the Mad Max drums and strings.

Imo, JXL needs to leave his comfort zone and write for dramatic films. His string writing is some of the best out there, and his action music works when he doesn't fall into the same routine drums and pounding.

I wonder what sound Junkie is going to come up with for this. I'm hoping for something completely off the wall and unconventional.


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-24 10:52:50
Me too, although I'm not sure Junkie has that in him sadly...Mad Max called for that too, and what we got in the end was a pretty standard combination of MoS percussion, strings, electronica and electric guitar.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-24 11:10:45
The funny thing is, it'll be out before Bat V Sup but was written after... :D


Zimson2016-01-24 11:58:34
Junkie has some serious talent for action scoring. Brothers in arms was easily last year's most intense track. He is besides Hans the only one who can pull sth like that off so far.


mpolonest1232016-01-24 15:14:56
It seems like it's the producers/directors who tend to keep asking for the same type of action drum music that he turns out.

Junkie has proven that he can write stirring string music, unfortunately his use of electronics always tends to fall short. Here's hoping that this and BvS can change that around.


Frank2016-01-25 02:16:17
He mentioned Deadpool in Fans of Film Music gathering and said he pushed very "left" for this one. So I guess this will be a very different score

This is pretty cool imo, I like the little "Beat It" motif.


mpolonest1232016-01-26 02:59:38
For some reason it reminds me of Chappie lol


ggctuk2016-01-27 19:30:50
Having never seen Chappie or heard the soundtrack, I would say it would easily fit in "The Matrix: Path of Neo". Kind of reminds me of "The Key". I liked those pieces so it's nice to hear something that reminds me of it.

On that topic, was Junkie XL with RCP when he wrote for Path of Neo?


...2016-01-28 00:59:09
Damn... I don't like this. I wish Tom would step away from the pop music/edm genre. His work for Black Mass, Mad Max and even divergent (which has pop elements) was amazing. I shouldn't judge the score by this sample but this doesn't do it for me... Let's hope he delivers a great batman theme:)


Ds2016-01-28 08:25:51
Since most of his career has been precisely in the electronic genre, I guess it's normal some directors hire him because they want an electronic score :-p


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-29 00:22:15
I can't say I really loved it or that it's the sort of thing I'll listen to a lot, but I will say that this sort of music feels like a much more natural fit for Junkie than that Man of Steel/Mad Max modern action music stale percussion drumming hell that we've heard from him so many times already. This allows his more colorful electronica side to come to the forefront and the textures are much more interesting than just BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA-BA-BA-BA BAM BAM BAM BAM.
