Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...<br>That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.

@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.
I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again !

Don't worry this one won't be an essay's length. After listening to this score again, it's probably Jablonsky's best since Steamboy. The main theme, while sounding a bit like Transformers (hell it's even in G minor like "Autobots"), is used much more effectively with clever writing where the theme clashes with the villain themes, some much appreciated key variations, and a feeling of fun and adventure that hasn't been present in a Jablonsky score since "Your Highness".

"Become Human" has a wonderful variation of the theme that conveys something similar to "Optimus", that there'll always be a tragic side to these characters. And like TF5, the use of electronics here give the score a sense of sound variety, despite the lack of woodwinds and other instruments.

"Turtle Power" is nothing more than fun. Just pure fun. It sounds like the lighthearted, yet bombastic music Nickelodeon would use for their cartoons, which is incredibly fitting for this movie. And like the main theme, the key variations really make it feel special and unique.

While I don't remember the Shredder theme too much, the Krang theme is extremely memorable. I like how the first half of the theme is a reference to Halloween, conveying the insanity of this deformed creature, and how it slowly develops seamlessly to Steve's own, original composition for the character. Plus the way the 2 villain themes come together in the finale, is incredibly satisfying.

Honestly, this might be Jablonsky's best score since Steamboy. It's wonderfully melodic, has echoes in tone to Danny Elfman and James Horner's work on the Spider-Man franchise, and it reminds me of his early work when he didn't have to worry about being compared to Zimmer. Hell, "Baxter Stockman" is basically a Desperate Housewives track.


superultramegaa2018-04-14 22:41:20
Also I just realized I said it's Jablonsky's best score since Steamboy twice. Good job on not editing that, me.


mpolonest123 2018-04-15 09:22:42
Couldn’t agree more.

For some reason I always forget this score, but whenever I revisit it I instantly fall in love. If anything, this score is definitely a throwback to the classic MV scores. The themes are simple but still memorable, and the variety of music keeps things interesting.

Would love to see more scores like this from Steve!


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-15 12:03:36
I need to listen to this one again. I love the themes, but the many action cues seemed to sort of blend into one another (unlike with Steamboy, where each one has its own distinct personality). I agree it's one of Jablonsky's best scores though. Hoping that this year's Skyscraper is similarly fun.


superultramegaa2018-04-15 13:45:32
Yeah, I listened to the end credits music of Game Over, Man, and I gotta tell you guys, it's nothing special. Though to be fair I'm really not sure if I've ever heard I really great score for a Hangover-type of movie like that. So I don't think there was much Steve could do with that one. Maybe Skyscraper will give him more opportunities to show his skill.

@Hybrid I just saw that they are making a new short film in the BMW series. You happen to know if Jablonsky is returning since he did Hostage. Or if (fingers crossed) Mazzaro or Kawczynski may do it since Neil Blomkamp is directing, that'd be pretty sweet.

I see Lorne Balfe is working with Blomkamp .

Steve's new theme is fantastic. I don't know what people are talking about Tyler's theme for the first movie. Isn't it just another slight variation of his Iron Man or Thor 2 themes?


Vivien2016-06-07 12:36:55
Agreed. TMNT 1 = Iron man 3 = Thor 2


MrZimmerFan2016-06-07 12:53:52
But still one of his best works


Listen carefully2016-07-15 13:53:36
Please.. All those themes are different. People feel similarity because Tyler uses horns a lot. Think of theme of superman(old version) and that of star wars. Even their codes and melodys are different, many people think that they are "slight variation".. When you finish studying codes, you will notice those musics are all different.......
I wonder why don't you say TMNT2 theme is longer part of transformers theme..
Think before you type.


Edmund Meinerts2016-07-15 21:16:43
Nah, it's way more than "he uses horns a lot". The harmonies Tyler uses are far more simplistic and rooted in pop music (especially the iv-VI-I-V from Thor 2, dear God is that ever an overused progression) than the far more complex late-romantic idiom that Williams uses, so when Tyler uses similar ones from score to score it really stands out. The orchestrations in Williams' big themes from the late-70s-early-80s might be similar but the progressions (and rhythmic construction) in Star Wars, Superman and Indiana Jones are totally different. Not to mention the fact that Tyler's melodic lines are way shorter than Williams'.

That Jablonsky's TMNT2 theme sounds a bit like Transformers is, however, also true. But I'm willing to give it a pass because I like hearing that melodic side of Jablonsky's writing make a return.


Yoon(Listen carefully)2016-07-16 08:09:18
Edmund Meinerts, I wasn't talking about the styles of Tyler's music or Williams'. I tried to point out that people make rush response to musics. Normal people could say composer's musics are same when they contact musics which contains similar use of instruments. Even if those themes are different. Such as Williams' musics. I was surprised that many people who listened to theme of star wars(opening part) and that of superman barely distinguished the difference because the arrangement of orchestra. That is the reason why I mentioned William's theme. And I wanted to say that this phenomenon is happening to you.

Jablonsky also writes this year for four movies, the music and happy father what one sees on facebook. is just a lot of time pressure behind it but he always comes with what new and used elements from his earlier scores which is also in order. hans zimmer makes it too! especially if it is a specific piece of very good like a pity when you hear film four times in different. but okay.

Half Shell....What Amazing cover from the original TV Series Intro song.

That's why I'm still thinking....Why this good composer didn't get this leitmotiv and made a really fun and cool soundtrack?

Because this OST is all but not fun or inspired or nothing fine.
Is really boring and "pilot-mode on", so generic and souless.

I remember the last soundtrack by Brian Tyler. Wasn't a master piece but had a very good main theme and was correct music along the movie. Perhaps when I'll be watching the this sequel I'll can apreciate more the music work with the rest of stuff, but for now, every time I listen the last track "Half Shell"....I'm still askingn, Why?

I hope myself Steve manages to get Justice League since Zimmer's leaving. Maybe with Junkie to aid in keeping the style and thematic music on the film, and adapt Hans' themes for Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg.


Macejko2016-05-31 16:00:52
Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg had a theme? o.O


Edmund Meinerts2016-05-31 16:30:19
I think he means the themes that Hans (or whoever) would eventually write for those characters. I seem to recall one of the ideas for music in the DC universe was Hans writing all the main themes, and then various RC composers doing the individual scores using those themes. Honestly, I kind of like the sound of that. It would take advantage of the collaborative nature of RC in the best possible way.

To bring things back to Turtles, Tyler's score for the first is actually one of my favorites of his (it's not as generic as his Marvel music and has some unusually complex writing and cool Matrix-like brass moments), but I thought his main theme was pretty weak and sounded like every other heroic theme he's ever written. With Jablonsky I'm the other way around - I'm fairly confident in his ability to deliver strong themes (even his weakest scores usually have that). But he often stumbles when it comes to the actual underscore. I'm still looking forward to hearing this, though - it could be the best Jablonsky score in a long time.

Ds2016-05-23 22:45:25
Actually it only seems to happen with movies produced by Michael Bay. The Last Witch Hunter was ready well on time, if I recall well :-p

When TF3 came out, Steve said in interviews that the CD had been ready for a long time, but just waited too long for Bay's approval, because Bay was busy with something else...
