I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

I guess this one should benefit from an expanded release. Most of this OST is basically theme suites, and I might be wrong, but I watched the movie yesterday and there's A LOT of unreleased music.


jewen2016-06-06 23:45:42
I Totally agree with you.

Yes! We need a expanded realese (for both, Film and Ost).

Ramin Djawadi is overrated


Hybrid Soldier2016-08-27 23:11:07
He's started his solo career what, 11/12 years ago. If he was, he wouldn't still be around.

He's a talented guy, works his ass off and delivers what he's asked to do.

So, I have already listened to it - from start to finish - multiple times now and I simply love it more and more with each time I press "play"! My god, the CD is only hour long and not only there is 6 prominent themes, but also - I think - more than 4 smaller ones that are built upon them. I basically discover new things every time I listen to it. How in the world was Ramin able not only establish, but develop them in such a relatively short time frame is beyond me. This is an amazing score and not only did it deliver everything I love about Ramin's style (with some callbacks to his previous work, such as similar approach and use of instruments with The Horde and with the Dothraki), but it has also expanded upon it (those woodwinds and mainly brass - oh my god, I want to hear more of those horns and trombones in the future). I adore it!

Also, bragging time - the suite here was done by me. I wanna thank Hybrid Soldier for providing me with the opportunity, I had a great time editing it! :)


Brent2016-06-12 02:27:21
The film was absolutely atrocious, but this score, in my humble opinion, is one of Ramin's best works (Pacific Rim is the only one that I can think of that is better). I would hope for a sequel just to hear more development on this score. :)

I would like to know which tracks were composed by Brandon Campbell

jewen reply Replies: 0 || 2016-06-07 15:17:54
I like to share with you what I think (after watched the film) is the Chronological Order for the album tracks.
First of all, I must to point that the album realese have a various "Theme Tracks", for example:
Warcraft, The Horde, Medivh, Honor, Lothar or Gul'dan....
And many music that we can hear along the movie is missing in this realese.
I made this tracklist based on my perception of which of this "Themes" sounds first in the movie or at least a piece of them:

1. The Beginning
2. Honor
3. The Horde
4. Lothar
5. Medivh
6. Forest Ambush
7. Strong Bones
8. Victory and Defeat
9. My Gift to You
10. Gul'dan
11. Half Orc, Half Human
12. The Book
13. Whatever Happenes
14. The Incantation
15. Two Worlds Colliding
16. Llane's Solution
17. Mak'gora
18. For Azeroth
19. Warcraft

And if you like to know on what part of the movie I based my tracklist, be careful

*SPOILER ALERT*

1. This track, or part of this sounds on the ”Production Logos intro”
2. A little bit of “Honor” theme can listen in one of the first scenes, between Durotan and his pregnant wife Draka.
3. Next to the scene with Durotan and Draka we can listen this track along the Prologue scene when part of The Horde travels trough the portal to Azeroth.
4. We met Lothar, and some scenes traveling to Stormwind or flying to Karazhan.
5. We met Medivh in Kalazhan.
6. Forest Ambush (exactly this)
7. The conversation in the night between Garona, Lothar and Khadgar while they are traveling to Orc Camp. She explain a little bit her origins and talk about her Strong Bones.
8. Durotan and his Orcs met with Lothar and the King but is all a trap, and the loss for Lothar is really bad.
9. Medivh is sick and have a conversation with Garona, and gives her a magical gift.
10. Gul’dan manipulates Orgrim to betray Durotan.
11. Lothar still sad about his loss, and Garona try to encourage him.
12. Khadgar travels to Dalaran and discover the true behind Medivh sickness.
13. Draka says goodbye to his baby.
14. Khadgar free Lothar and join forces against Medivh in Karazhan.
15. While, Orcs and Humans fight in the Orc Camp and Gul’dan open the portal again.
16. King Llane and his troops rescue the human prisoners but the portal closes and the end is very tragic.
17. After the end of the battle Lothar comes to make his part, and the Mak’gora scene is for sure one of the best in the entire movie.
18. The Alliance of Azeroth is born and it’s ready for fight.
19. End Credits

Bondo reply Replies: 3 || 2016-06-01 23:00:11
For those who have seen the film, is the OST presented in chronological order? And is "Warcraft" an end credits suite? It works well coming right after "For Azeroth"


Hybrid Soldier2016-06-01 23:09:17
I think there are a lot of theme suites in the there... Warcraft does come at the end, and I think "The Beginning" at the beginning from what I remember... The second half of the OST does look chronological to me...


Bondo2016-06-01 23:16:24
"The Beginning" comes at the beginning? Guess I should've guessed that... lol


Lejti2016-06-02 09:03:04
The "Warcraft" track is a little bit different from the end credit music, just like it was in Clash Of The Titans.

For once my fears not become real with a movie score.

Not. Warcraft Score is not Pacific Rim additional music.

Not. Warcraft Score is not Game of Thrones bastard.

Yes. Warcraft Score is just Warcraft Score,
And what a original score that's Ramin Djawadi has wrote!

I love how the Main Theme is implemented in some parts of the tracks along the album.
The music for the Orcs (A.K.A. the Horde) is a brilliant mix of beautiful and darkness. And I consider that this music is the central part of the album.
That's good, ok, but this make that the music for the human heroes (Allianz of Azeroth) is really really scanty and not developed at all.

Not the case with Medivh theme, OMG what a magnificent theme!
Listen how is mixed with the Horde music is just great.

My biggest surprise is the few action-tracks that this soundtrack includes. Coming from a movie that talks about WAR is surprising the slow pacing in a lot of tracks and in general is my feeling with the Album experience.
Nothing bad I must say, only strange .

Now 8.5 out 10 is my score for this amazing work. Probably if this music work well in the film I will turn up to 9 or more, Who knows?

And yes, of course....listening this you can breathe Real Epic.

jewen2016-05-20 12:52:35
A little bit of "Pacific Rim" here and there, but I will keep my faith in the complete album experience, and that it will works in the film.

This piece "Warcraft", might be an Opening Credits? I bet for this...


GR72016-05-26 23:30:12
Totally Pacific Rim in the end of the cue. ! But it sounds quite well for Warcraft at the beginning (very martial feeling)

Dfault2016-04-28 14:54:42
Thats funny you say that Edmardo, as I Think the ingame music of WoW is one of the worst aspects of the game. Whereas a Lineage2 has really really good ingame music.

I guess tastes differ ^^


Evil Twin Brother of Edmund Meinerts2016-04-28 17:39:43
Well, Macejko would disagree with you Edmardo. And stop using my brother's last name.


Edmund Meinerts2016-04-28 19:16:52
World of Warcraft has some of the best game music, period. Mists of Pandaria is particularly great, but they're all solid scores!


Zimson2016-04-28 20:21:54
They get better with every expansion. I can't think of a game with more immersive music and that's saying something.
I agree that MoP is the best yet, Jade Forest and Valley of the Four Winds have absolutely beautiful music.


Edmund Meinerts2016-04-28 23:20:19
For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!


Zimson2016-04-28 23:54:21
Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me.
Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.


Zach2016-05-07 23:20:31

Perhaps, but I read somewhere that some of the themes from the game were used which got me extra excited to hear this!
