Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.The Thin Red Line >> The New World....Good for you?I don't like Hans Zimmer, James Horner is my favorite.Uhh, I don't electronic music ain't gonna work on Alita Battle Angel.
Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing — but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>
Oh wow! That’s all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Can’t insult me! I am genuinely curious. What’s this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.
he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?

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.

jewen reply Replies: 0 || 2016-05-28 18:48:05
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
@Ed M
Perhaps, but I read somewhere that some of the themes from the game were used which got me extra excited to hear this!
