CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI 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 music
i 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 2
Guess 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 knowThe 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.

Hey Hybrid, Is This Complete?


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-15 22:23:09
Why... why don't you check yourself with the film ? I assure you it's not that hard ! Might take some time but if you wanna find out... lol


Felix2017-08-15 22:51:59
Haha.... a yes or no was very hard for you?!... But thanks for the great information :)... lol


Hybrid Soldier2017-08-15 22:53:39
I honestly haven't checked and don't plan on doing it anytime soon ! lol


badbu2017-08-16 08:03:24
haha hybrid :D made my day :) lol

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 7 || 2016-10-22 20:25:16
So, Hybrid, will you be able to tell us more about this one? How exactly did Margeson and Higham divide up duties? It sounds pretty unified, stylistically, except for the one techno track...


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-22 22:09:32
Yeah they really worked together, doing cues together, arranging eacher, sometimes one more in charge of something etc. As for the "techno track", it's the work of Jason Soudah actually.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-22 22:53:01
A true collaboration then! Cool. It's a decent score, but at a lot of points it felt like an Elfman score without his personality or any really memorable themes...


ei182016-10-22 23:58:18
Do you know why Elfman didn't score this?


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-23 00:28:58
I assume that there were scheduling conflicts with The Girl on the Train, but that can't be the whole story; surely you'd expect Elfman to prioritize the Tim Burton movie in that case...


ei182016-10-23 02:07:12
my thoughts exactly.


Meta2016-10-23 02:59:58
Probably has something to do with the fact that Burton is now divorced while Elfman is happily married. Different lifestyles now, so they probably aren't on the same page anymore.



Brent2016-10-23 06:08:30
Edmund, I thought there were scheduling conflicts with Alice 2 and Tim wanted him to do that one. Not entirely sure as these movies were pretty far apart, but there production could have ended around the same time.

The 11th.


isildur2016-10-03 15:20:49
I heard from the people who saw the movie that the score is amazing. Did you listen to it, Hybrid?


Anonymous2016-10-03 16:02:44
Why no Elfman?!


Waymann2016-10-06 16:22:19
Score comes out tomorrow on Itunes at least. Just checked Itunes Sri Lanka. (I know this is not the place here but tomorrow you can pre-order Fantastic Beasts on Itunes and get the main titles already, also samples available, FYI)


Waymann2016-10-07 13:22:17
There's a track missing. Enoch's Dolls is the same track as Squirrel Rescue...


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-07 19:34:00
Yeah there was a fuck up, it was brought up to the Label & iTunes and is going to be worked out.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-04 03:21:10
Didn't see the movie because I didn't want to. One of the reasons was because Danny Elfman didn't do the score. However, I am looking foward to this score. But can anybody tell me why Danny Elfman didn't return? Are him and Timmy fighting again?

Waymann reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-03 08:47:26
When does it come out ? Movie is already released...
