The same "journalists" who said Hans was hired a week ago ?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>LOLJournalists say he will act as a composer.If some time down line it gets revealed that all of these Lornanists were on someone’s payroll, you heard it here first.Confirmed by Lorne, the score album for Bad Boys 3 is coming... the next FrridayMarr is probably performing the James Bond theme...you know, on the electric guitar? Which is the instrument he's famous for?<br><br>Jesus, I swear there are some people who won't be happy until Lorne Balfe is singlehandedly both composing and performing the score to every film that is ever made.
I can't say that I am happy.  I love Marr, but I don't want Marr in Lorne's position.  #BalfeforBondJohnny Marr has been confirmed to be performing on the score...<br><br>Is there going to be a separate discussion thread for this btw?Dark Materials was anything but "a pure orchestral sound" lolIt largely has to do with the types of films he scores.Meh, you're not alone. Not a big fan of Desplat, especially when it comes to his contributions to pre-established franchises.
Track 9. Stop The Crane and 11. Burn Or Jump<br><br>Excellent.One of the most elite scores produced.I might get hate for this and Desplat might be a cool guy, but I have no idea why he gets so many Oscar nominations... please don´t kill meMan, I am actually excited to hear Balfe's score for Bad Boys for Life - the clips he's posted on his Facebook page sound awesome and like they could truly honour Mancina. The Balfe components sound epic and the Mancina integrations dynamic. What's to fear, right?  <br><br><br>I do fear that someone makes Alan Myerson to distill these 100s of performers, choral and orchestral, to make the whole score sound like an 80s casio synth again - please don't!! Balfe's had huge success with Dark Materials and Gemini Man with a pure orchestral sound - don't fuck it up, PLEASE.meh to desplat. this score needs jackman...
The "Knight March" theme is really potent. Hans should release his suites for this! I know it'll never happen, but a CD of just his original demos for his various projects would be really fun to hear.I also want to remind people that Cate Shortland is directing this film. This is a director that said James Horner destroyed the movie Avatar with his manipulative  music.<br><br>I wouldn't be surprised if most of the music is more tame without melodies. But then again, Disney is really the composer here, not Desplat.Shince, outside of the admittedly great main theme I do find Silvestri's Avengers music to be fairly forgettable...the sort of standard watered down orchestral sound that Marvel loves, not badly composed or anything but not particularly distinctive and a bit disappointing coming from a composer who in the past was capable of stuff like Judge Dredd, The Mummy Returns or Van Helsing.We never usually have the credits of Lorne's projects.  Could Hybrid get the credits of Lorne's projects?Some additional credits from the cuesheet:<br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steffen Thum<br><br>COFFEE TIME<br>NIGHT VISITORS<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steve Davis<br><br>FIRST CONFRONTATION<br>VAN ATTACK<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Sven Faulconer<br><br>MOTORCYCLE CHASE<br>URIE TALKS TO HENRY<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Max Aruj<br><br>BUDAPEST<br>TRAIN RIDE<br><br><br>Steffen Thum<br><br>MEET JACK

The score has leaked... well, is out in Microsoft Store


Anonymous2016-10-11 00:52:43
Listened to it. It is a very boring score. All is very very generic.

Steve his score was more heroic and had some good themes. The main theme doesn't use anything from the previous games.

Ramin is good at writing some excellent melancholic themes like in GOT but not very good at writing exciting action music


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-11 10:48:54
I think I agree with your assessment of Djawadi. His themes are generally strong and he's very good at writing these catchy "hook"-type ostinatos. But I've never been too impressed with his action music, which frequently comes across as "plodding" to my ears.


MrZimmerFan2016-10-11 11:48:55
Agreed, very simple score, and what a hell happen with Kevin's theme?, isn't very good for you, Ramin?

Steve understand that theme and he uses in his two works in the franchise, and creating some very good action tracks and great renditions in the games, but Djawadi replaces with this simple and boring theme.


Anonymous2016-10-11 21:42:26
I agree. The action music is the same as all his scores. Some basic strings doing a few repetive dum-da-dum notes and not going anywhere.

I like some of his GOT themes but that was also due to his releases have a decent of amount of time between them. But this year there have been way more Ramin scores and it just shows how generic it all sounds.

They shouldn't hire him for franchises that already exist. I didn't like his warcraft score either. Compared to the game "login screen" music it was incredibably shallow.



Macejko2016-10-12 00:04:43
This is one of the most thematic videogame scores out there. Nearly every action cue has its unique and distinctive sound. I seriously don't know what you've all listened to, because it clearly wasn't this.
I won't be arguing much more, since it's unlikely I'll change anyone's opinion, but I'll be editing a suite for Hybrid to post here (as I did with Warcraft). It'll showcase what I mean.


rockhound2016-10-12 09:24:00
djawadis action music is generic and boring, but steves not? are you guys kidding? even in the itunes samples ramins action music sounds more varied than the music jablonsky wrote. maybe steves theme is more heroic, but it is not less simple and generic than ramins theme. i think this score sounds really good and like alot of mindless fun.


Everan2016-10-12 13:23:35
How bout we enjoy both and not bash the work from either composers?


Macejko2016-10-12 17:05:06
No, this is the internet, you crazy? :D


Anonymous2016-10-12 23:40:39
What is wrong with expressing a personal opinion or a personal review? If everybody cheers and say how awesome things are all the time their is no need for the Internet or comment sections :)


Meta2016-10-13 02:06:55
^^^

Hes right, you know.


Shince Thomas 2019-06-28 04:32:55
The main theme may not be that great but tracks such as The Storm, In and Out are pretty awesome. I think those are much better than a lot of film action cues out there.

The suite is up. Thanks for the opportunity, Hybrid! :)

Ramin absoutely owned this year thus far, and with not only Gears 4, but also Westworld and The Great Wall coming out as well, I have no doubt that he will continue to do so.


h.zamani2016-10-02 17:01:24
i thought steve jablonsky would compose soundtracks of this game !!!!!11


Macejko2016-10-02 19:05:33
Yeah, it is always better to "think" and "suppose" rather than doing a one minute internet search.
"!!!!!11" indeed.


Everan2016-10-03 00:30:11
He composed the past games, it's easy to assume he'd be back, cut the guy a break, no need to be a jerk.


Macejko2016-10-03 22:30:32
Sorry, I was a bit cranky when I replied.
