yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>
Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?
i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>
Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?

If you listen in the "Strip Chase" scene, there is cues not used on the soundtrack listed here. I also heard the main Bourne theme on "Paddington Plaza" as a cue as I can remember the most, which isn't here either. I'm guessing complete score?

Hmm, this is different than I expected. I didn't expect to see Buckley's name on, say, Paddington Plaza, Berlin, or Las Vegas. I figured those were 100% Powell arrangements (which, technically, they still are...). But seeing Buckley everywhere is interesting.

Mike2016-10-10 16:16:00
Edit: not all of those were Buckley. Batu Sener contributed to quite a few of the early scenes, is looks like. :P

Edmund Meinerts2016-10-10 21:05:12
It's funny because I'm the other way around: there's way more Powell and way less Buckley than I would have thought (although I do kind of wonder whether Powell's name on a lot of the cues is little more than a formality due to reusing the Bourne motifs). Certainly I'm surprised Buckley didn't have anything to do with "Motorcycle Chase", and it looks like Sener had nearly as big a role as Buckley.

Maybe I'm just in denial that Powell could ever turn out a score that sounds so uninspired as this, but other than the obvious reuse of Bourne motifs, I simply don't hear much of his voice in here. It sounds like someone doing a lame imitation of a Bourne score, except with the actual themes. If you told me that Sener and Buckley did all the legwork and Powell was just there to sign off on the use of his music, I would believe it in a second.

Mike2016-10-10 21:27:04
Something just told me from the start that "I Remember Everything" would be Powell. Granted, it's just a retooling of "Room 645" from Supremacy, but still, guess he did it himself. I had also thought "Paddington Plaza," "Las Vegas," and "Let Me Think About It" would be solo Powell, but again, they technically are, since 95% of them comes from Supremacy or Ultimatum. I'm not particularly surprised about Buckley's contributions, though I am surprised he didn't do anything on "Motorcycle Chase."

But yeah, Powell's limited involvement here shouldn't come as a surprise. He said himself that his job on this movie was to ensure that the music stayed loyal to the sound of the first three, and was less about paving new trails. It is a shame that we didn't get a truly inventive and interesting Bourne score, though.

Hybrid Soldier2016-10-10 22:47:41
The first minute of Strip Chase is a solo Powell cue...

Edmund Meinerts2016-10-10 22:56:14
Yeah, I guess I do hear Powell's signature soft string sound in there...but man, that's a table scrap if ever there was one. :(

Where's that damn Requiem???

Mike2016-10-11 01:29:48
Are those the only 2 solo Powell cues in the score, or are there a couple others?

I have to say, I was kinda disappointed with this score. I'm a big fan of all Powell Bourne scores, but this one is nowhere as good as them.

I guess he lost interested in definitive both on Bourne movies and on action movies in general - JB is the first one he did since Knight & Day, back in 2010. Let's hope that at least on animation he continues to do his excellent job.

Finally I saw the movie... Loved it! Probably as much as the first three. Everything I like about the Bourne movies is back here, including its pulsating score by John Powell. There was nothing really new, but it was such a pleasure nonetheless!

Mike2016-08-20 21:12:07
I liked, but didn't love, the movie. I felt it lacked the "humanization" of Bourne that connected you to him in the last three, I felt that [SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!] the death of a certain character near the beginning was handled with almost no emotional punch that it deserved, and I felt that there weren't any of those "clever Bourne" moments that make these films so engrossing. For example, the toaster bomb in Supremacy, the Waterloo scene with Ross in Ultimatum, or the "if you were in your office right now, we'd be having this conversation face to face" *click* (also in Ultimatum). As one review put it, in the first three films, Bourne was human first, assassin second. This movie seemed to reverse that, to me at least.

That said, I did like the movie overall, and having the John Powell music back was nice. Howard's score on Legacy just wasn't the same.

Ds2016-08-21 01:50:09
Yeah, not only JNH score wasn't the same, but it was just very poor :-p

I thought there were quite a few "clever Bourne" moments, like the triggering of fire alarms, or the camera recording at the end, classic Bourne (while admittedly not very original).

I haven't listened to the score, but the fact that Debney (apparently) used themes form both Powell AND David Newman is something to be appreciated in a time when sequels keep being made with different composers, having zero musical continuity. I don't think Powell referenced David Newman's work on the first film at all, right?

It's the beginning of August, i.e. 7 months down, 5 to go; that's why I said "barely" as opposed to "almost". And are you really so anal as to point THAT out? Yikes.

Pablo Reyes2016-08-09 01:54:36
@Mike, He really references both Powell and Newman? I was trying to avoid that score because I was a really big fan of Powell's Ice Age 2 3 & 4 and I was sad he got replaced. I guess I'm going to have to give this one a try now...

Mike2016-08-09 02:31:33
Yep, they both get theme references in a few cues.

This quote from Powell at Comic Con last week demonstrates what we already knew, concerning the "unoriginality" factor of this score. Funny how much it describes the whole movie, not just the music:

"I was allowed to develop the style a little bit within the first three movies, but I come back to it 9 years later, and everybody ... knows what that sounds like. I mean, it's every action movie or TV show you have. Basically, I think we decided we weren't gonna try and break the rules again [like in the first film], and we've just gone back to the beginning. It's the first three, just put together."

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2016-08-01 02:00:35
I think what I prefer in this soundtrack is the new kick-ass remix of Moby's song! The actual score sounds so different from the previous ones, it's hard to believe they were composed by the same man.

Mike2016-08-01 02:13:04
I agree, but...

Powell said in a recent interview about this score - yes, there was an interview! - that his main job here was making sure things were loyal to the franchise's established sound (which is obvious, cause let's face it, everything is re-arrangements). But that means his job here was mostly arranger / editor, not composer. Add Buckley's cues, which sound sufficiently distinctive, and it comes as no surprise to me that this score doesn't quite sound like the other ones. Even if that was what Powell was hired for.

Mike2016-08-01 02:17:15
I have to admit, though, if I'm going to be honest, I'm still happy John Powell came back. The score is nothing new, but he was understandably set against it for so long that it seemed his absence was certain. At least this way, there's still musical continuity with the first three, and *some* level of variation from the old stuff - more than there probably would have been if they had just tracked in the music and Powell wasn't there at all.

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2016-07-31 02:28:08
Well, if the score was unoriginal, so was the film. Serviceable, at points entertaining, but taking things nowhere they haven't been before. Such a shame. It seemed like this "band reunion" of a film had all the right keys in place, but it was good at best and a dud at worst.

aldan reply Replies: 9 || 2016-07-29 03:32:17
Well now, when you heard the whole soundtrack, you can CLEARLY distinguish whose track they belong to, and it's really exciting because it is that obvious.

So John Powell did:
-1. I Remember Everything
-3. Converging In Athens
-5. A Key To The Past
-6. Berlin
-9. Paddington Plaza
-11. Las Vegas
-15. Let Me Think About It

Powell's tracks diffirentiate themselves by having much more organic mixing, better writing,and when it comes to electronic sound, it has this "whole,full, and crisp" quality to it and it is good, THOUGH not much new material ( i think the one heard in Athens, is something new)

WHILE Buckley, on the other hand, he basically put his "watermark" with his two high-ascending string notes,which is tiresome, THOUGH he supplies a lot of variations of Powell's theme, it feels generic, boring, the mixing is hollow, and the electronic is that Generic awfull thing we are deared to acknowledge as RCP's sound. ( Yes, Powell WAS from RCP, i get it,but, so was Lincoln from Republican :P)

BUT ANYHOW, sadly, this soundtrack can't hold its candle to SUPREMACY and ULTIMATUM, no Tangiers, no Goa. But it's not disappointing, because you know what it is. And it's such a grace to having a new Powell score in these kind of days.

Mike2016-07-29 17:12:08
It sounds like the film didn't live up to Supremacy or Ultimatum either... I wasn't expecting the music to. ;) I truly don't understand how Powell cranked out such an awesome score for Supremacy. Unless Greengrass only started to become "problematic" after that.

Ds2016-07-29 19:57:25
Yeah Mike I think you're right, and it's kind of confirmed by an interview of Greengrass I read a while ago. He was saying that when he came on board, he just wanted to gather the same crew from the 1st film and kind of let them do their thing (it wasn't formulated like that at all of course). He felt like he was the new guy in the band, so he didn't want to impose his will straightaway.
I guess after Supremacy's success, he felt a little more confident and didn't hesitate to mess with Powell while making Ultimatum.

Mike2016-07-30 00:07:46
Interesting. Still wish we could hear Powell's score, as written, in the film.

Saurabh2016-07-30 07:01:47
So how did Powell agree to do this one after the frustration he had with Ultimatum and Green Zone. It was surprising to read when it was announced that Powell was scoring it. This one sorely lacks the raw percussion that Powell had unleashed in Supremacy first and then . The juxtaposition of that ethnically heavy drum sound with modern espionage worked awesome in Supremacy and Ultimatum and really distinguished them from the MI or Bond scores. Buckley's electronic work is everything that people hate about RCP. But still, any Powell score is welcome these days since his presence in live action is lacking while it's just the opposite in terms of his creativity.

Brent2016-07-30 07:18:19
I must be alone in all of this, but I actually really enjoyed this. Even though it's not quite on par with Supremecy or Ultimatum, it's actually quite entertaining. I love Powell's return, even though this genre and this series specifically doesn't lend itself to loads of creativity. And believe it or not, I liked Buckley's contribution here. Definitely much better than Newton-Howard. Motorcycle Chase, in particular, is perhaps my favorite Buckley cue here.

meta2016-07-30 15:46:29
Im gonna say it:

I dont know what Powell's deal is, but he phoned this in.

NO new themes AT ALL. How hard is it to just make ONE theme (maybe a theme for Bourne's Return or something), and then use it throughout to make the soundtrack stand out in its own way?

Instead we get a rehash...and a horrid one at that; it makes the score to Pirates 4 look better...At least Pirates 4 had a couple new themes in its rehashed material.

Each track that Powell has on this ost just leaves me wanting.

The final track just sounds like what?

Most if it comes off as filler. Pure filler.

Ds2016-07-30 15:52:39
Powell is a genius. If the result is bad, Powell is the last person I would blame. Don't forget a score's first purpose is to complement the director's vision...

Mike2016-07-30 16:01:11
Seeing the film today. Holding off any definitive judgements until then.

Meta2016-07-30 19:06:33
Well if this is reflective of the Director, then it seems to me Powell barely had anything to do with this...and when he did, he did bare minimum.

He must have phoned it in. In now way does this sound similar to the previous efforts, or Green Zone, for that matter. Not that I blame him, considering the drama.

I'm guessing this was Buckley's show more than Powell's

Longer sample is on itunes.

Once again is really hard to distinguish who's doing what, at one point you clearly know that it is pure Buckley, and then when you're sure it is Powell, you may also think Buckley could also well emulate and write the piece. ( Buckley's piece is almost recognizeable with its HGW high strings, generic electronic, and i know it is Buckley when he plays with Powell's theme, becuase like any child, who wouldn't want to play with new and popular thing?

But one thing for sure, Powell does the very first, the middle, and the very last.

And here's the thing, somehow i love this electronic-minimalist-Greengrass-GreenZonepercussionist sound that Powell came up, there's this.....thing that attracts me. Much different than what Remote Control's minimalist is: generic, boring, and universally generic, and did i say boring?

Hybrid Soldier2016-07-23 10:08:24
But Powell is a pure product of RCP, so your sentence doesn't make any sense ! :P

Morgan Joylighter2016-07-23 11:16:27
I think most people would agree that even though Powell is historically a "product" of RCP, he brought so much of his own voice to his career, especially after he left MV/RCP, that there is really a distinct difference between the expectations of a Powell score and the expectations of any other RCP composer. He emulates Zimmer less than any other composer that has ever worked with Zimmer and he has a more unique, bold and varied voice than any of them either. IMO.

Samples on Amazon! Definitely temp-tracking was done, because the "core" of some cues is definitely Supremacy / Ultimatum stuff.

Mike2016-07-13 20:20:37
And just lemme add: Idk what Buckley will have ended up doing, really. I feel like 70% of the samples were heavily borrowed from the 2nd and 3rd films. It also leaves me wondering if Powell really did anything new here.

Which is what I was expecting anyway. But we'll have to wait and see...or hear. ;)

Saurabh2016-07-14 03:54:25
Considering Powell's past experience with Greengrass, it's not surprising that this one seems to be lacking in new material. Based on samples, it appears to be more of a Buckley score featuring previous themes by Powell. And Buckley's electronic work sticks out in the samples, which is reminiscent of The Town which he did with HGW.
But still it's too early to judge the score from samples alone.

Edmund Meinerts2016-07-15 12:00:26
I wonder whether Buckley's role in this is less composer than adapter, taking bricks from Supremacy and Ultimatum and composing little bits of mortar here and there to fill in the gaps and hold it together. I sort of doubt there's much original Powell material, sadly (but I didn't get my hopes up for that anyways).

Berkian Warior2016-07-15 22:53:19
Samples sound promising. Sounds like a more mature version of Supremacy.
The fact that there is little new material isn't surprising. Greengrass keeps a tight hold on keeping the scores simple, something John Powell abhors. It's rare that you will find me saying 'simple' and 'John Powell' in the same sentence. John Powell writes some of the most complicated music I have ever heard.

Edmund Meinerts2016-07-15 23:09:37
I don't know, man, The Bourne Supremacy is a pretty good example of a score where not a single note is wasted. Powell's recent tendency towards excess only really started with 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand; before that, he had a slightly less flashy, slightly more "controlled" voice (even a score as wild as Robots still has a "tight" feel to it that you don't get as much from the HTTYD scores or Pan). I'm curious to see whether he can tap back into that with Jason Bourne - but first we have to see whether he really wrote much here at all.

Mike2016-07-16 00:33:29
Based on the samples, "Motorcycle Chase," "A Key to the Past," "Decrypted," "Flat Assault," and "White Van Plan" all have Buckley vibes (based solely off what he wrote for COD: Ghosts).

"Backdoor Breach" was obviously temped with Alexanderplatz, "Berlin" with The Drop, "Las Vegas" and "An Interesting Proposal" with Waterloo, and "Strip Chase" with Jason Is Reborn.

"I Remember Everything," "Let Me Think About It" and "Paddington Plaza" sound like they may be refreshingly original, and based on the fact that Powell did, apparently, work on this score, I'm calling those three cues as being his. :) Let's see what turns out to be the case.

It's so neat to see John as the main composer here. Usually, it says on the Albums, HANS ZIMMER (and in very small words) john powell. Not in this case. John Powell is definitely considered the master here(Even though he always is in my mind).

Mike2016-06-29 02:47:50
Not trying to be unnecessarily argumentative, but I honestly haven't come across album covers like you describe... Sure, if Zimmer's there, his name tends to be first, because, deserved or not, a Zimmer credit will sell titles. But font size is usually the same.

Adam2016-06-29 04:42:17
I agree Mike! Never seen one where one composer's name is a larger font size than the other!

Zimson2016-06-29 08:25:43
@Mike CoD: Modern Warfare 2 is an example. However that's Lorne. I honestly don't see where he's getting this impression from.

Mostly it wasn't literal. When Kung Fu Panda 1 first came out on amazon, the cover photo was the only indication that John Powell contributed. Digitally, the site didn't mark it as if he had helped. They changed that later though.

so judging by that clip ( you can see the other on the playlist), with its poorly mixed music ( as always with Greengrass), and surprisingly very boring and generic sounding:.....

I guess Buckley does all the action scene, becuase in that clip, it really sounds like HGW action-matic-mode, which is exactly what Buckley's music sounds.

And so, i think it's rather disappointing, because POwell name is attached and having those kind of music is really a huge embrassment for him.

I do really hope Powell's music does really shine in this, even when it is in action mode ( tangiers, bim bam, berlin foot walk, goa chase etc etc)

John Powell & David Buckley For First Time Two Composers In The New 5Th Movie Of Jason Bourne In 2016 With The Same Director By Paul Greengrass & Same Actor Matt Damon

Edmund Meinerts2016-07-07 10:59:21
Uh...thanks for the information?

Just over three weeks to go! I honestly thought we'd never get another John Powell Bourne score.

I didn't know where to post this, so I might as well do it here. Does anybody know if Powell's "A Prussian Requiem" will ever be released?

Edmund Meinerts2016-07-03 15:16:06
"Later this year" is what they said when it premiered this February (was it February? Well, whatever it was). The fact that we still haven't heard anything concrete (a date or even a month) worries me a bit but they still have nearly half a year left. I sure hope it shows up!

Strange. All traces of the album have been removed from the label's portals and Amazon.

really cant wait..

well recently Buckley has become get-to-help guy for the "main composer".

For JOhn Ottman's The Nice Guys, it's obvious that he's sought after for the action tracks, which, happen to sound like Bourne music.

Well, i think not because of that Buckley get hired in this movie, but rather because of Kraft-Engel agent. Both Powell and Ottman are theirs, and so is Buckley. So i think when a composer does need a help, in the agency, Buckley is the name they call.

I dont know why, but this movie does not scream two composers. I think it has something to do with Powell and Greengrass ( not because of Powell's wife death i pressume).

I think the theory is:
when the scenes required the music to be one of prominent elements and to the extent that the director couldnt agree more with composer's arguments, Powell does it. And when the music is not prominent, and the scene has the director's ego all over, and to the extent that the director will never shut up until the composer obey, that's when Buckley works.In short, Powell being Powell.

Wow this is exciting, i caant wait!

PS: does anyone know when POwell's prequiem will be released? i know He said later this year, and but heck, even Elfman's Ballet score is out already

Hybrid... do you know if this was another Greengrass-being-a-pain scenario? The fact that Powell's back at all suggests it was... doable, if nothing else.

Why Powell took the gig is another theory entrirely...

Powell, quote, doesn't like violence movies, aside from many violence and chase-action movies he has composed, he resides himself to simply not liking violence movies now ( i think it is personal, i dont want to discuss this matter).

Well, the second, he loves animated movies, so be it that whatever any saying of him retiring, there are still a great chance he will score an animated movie in the future.

And the third, and repeteadly quote, he wants to spend time wih his family. And after the current death of his wife, which is very unfortunate, perhaps there are some thoughts of, either Powell now giving all the time to his child or create some sort of legacy for his wife by creating a nice music.

And finally, quote, Powell will likely to score a movie if he desparately needs the money.

So there is that:
Jason Bourne is a violence un-animated live action movie that will take perhaps a lot of time you can actually give to the family. Really supports Powell's integity

And so, Greengrass must have been really begging for Powell to return for the sake of reuniting all team members. Proven with the inclusion of United 93 music into Captain Phillips, Greengrss must have been really fond with Powell's music and try best to keep him always. So for this movie, Greengrass must have offered a nice salary for Powell, and all in time when Powell has calmly soften himself. And thus Powell decided to return.

But Greengrass and Powell will always be themselves,so in the middle of the process, perhaps there are "the debate" that force the losing side, Powell, to seek a help from the community, the Kraft Engel agency. And so Buckley,i dont know why, is hired. And the struggle of Powell needing the help of another composer is proved by him asked Ed McCormack to "translate" the bourne score for Buckley, as to get a nice consistency of each score, albeit the different composer. I think.

Oh my god, what a Powell nerd i am, but really, i am a big fan of his. period.

And that's my theory that, will, ultimately, wrong, so dont take it to hard ;)

I won't be surprised if Powell was just a score consultant on this, who got a composer credit because of extensive reuses of his tunes for the previous entries. I'm not counting on new materials or tunes - given the director's track records, this will likely be a rehash of old stuff. I'd love to be proven wrong, of course.

Well, I saw Hybrid Soldier's comment on this subject after I posted mine's. Still, despite the facts given by our all-knowing-oracle, I stand by my previous comment.© 2001-2018 OST
