Hybrid, what did Danny think of what Hans was doing? Since he tries to claim that no Batman composer after him wrote a "theme"...Okay, so I'm not a fan of Balfe's; I think it's objectively the case that much of his music is very, very similar to work he's already done (seriously, how many times has he made obviously variations of Journey to the Line / Time?). However, his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO, not sure how one could expect more than that. Ironclad is actually a good example of thisActually Hybrid my comment is based on their separate  interviews years apart. Zimmer's arguably dismissive comment years ago and Elfman's arguably stern remark about his theme being the only Batman theme, of recent note. <br><br>If they are both good friends who go to each other's barbecues on Sundays and drink beer together, more power to them. If they have a stellar working relationship, well, I obviously am not privy to that, but good on them. However based on what I've heard my impressions don't lean towards the latter.<br><br>If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. <br>  <br><br><br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.
Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?
Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.
here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.<br>2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds<br>3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.<br>4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.<br><br>How did Hans fail here?<br><br>1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.<br><br>2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.<br><br>3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works<br><br>4. Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure.This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1.

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...
