He's right, it's outCheck Soulseek ;)He posted it before this site added the tracklist.Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.
When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>
@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion kingBest film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)
Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...

Does anyone know where to find the film version of Stampede? There are a few slight differences.

Opar is amazing ! The chords used and the sublime voice of Zoe Mthiyane remind me of the good old days of RCP.
It's nice to see that RCP haven't totally forgotten their origins !

It is indeed available for purchase on iTunes, and it's just 4,99€, I don't see any reason not to buy it! Just bought it, and so far it sounds good!


callmee2016-06-20 14:37:16
Will there be a CD release or it's download only again?


Russel2016-06-20 21:45:29
It's not accidental.


callmee2016-06-21 08:02:40
OK, now I have found it: manufactured on demand CD-R only. Well, I still prefer it to mp3 download only versions.

Really surprising to hear something so intense and epic from Rupert...I had basically given up on him since he got typecase into doing bland comedy scores, even though his early 2000s output (Jack & The Beanstalk, Bee Movie) showed tons of promise. Wish there were more composers writing music like this...people complain about the Zimmer sound taking over Hollywood but honestly there are only a handful of scores that sound like this every year. And this one is orchestral enough to please both sides I think!


Anonymous2016-06-20 11:47:59
Well there was a time many scores sounded like this.

But since Zimmer has evolved, Hollywood has evoled with it too. Every score now sounds like a Zimmer/Junkie simulation.

That's why this score sounds refreshing and a bit more old skool. After all this type of scores got me into film music years ago.

Great score. It really sounds like the great scores Hans used to make pre-inception. Love it!


Ds2016-06-19 18:20:52
Indeed. At first I thought it was good but not great, but after a few listens I really dig it, great stuff! Nice themes and subtle orchestration, nice job from RGW.

Yep and since it's in a month & half, better I add it ! lol

So HZ is "musical consultant" here... official or officious? :-)


Hybrid Soldier2016-05-16 22:46:19
He didn't write anything on this. Just did a little communication. Well at least that was the case 1 and a half month ago !! lol


Ds2016-05-16 22:51:35
... but surely WaterTower won't resist the temptation of putting his name on the cover, right? :-p


Miles2016-06-17 01:25:38
Cover's up. Just has Rupert's name; no mention of Zimmer.


0-^-02016-06-17 13:22:41
It may not have Hans Zimmer's name anywhere on it but the music does have his style emulated in the work. Good score, nevertheless.
