This is a highly underrated album. It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Change Of Plan (Unused) (5:47)Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinion
So it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.
I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !you can't, it's only an info for the complete scoreAccording To Filmmusicreporter.com, it Is true Lorne Balfe Is Scoring Black Widow.<br><br>Wow this guy Is the Best, this is the first time balfe scoring an MCU since Iron Man(worked as an additional music). I can't believe that Alexandre Desplat, who is a good composer left the film just like I remember Rogue One. Well, Now i Hope that Lorne Balfe makes a great score just like he does always.Comes out on April 3rd. Keep hearing that the music is very Lion King style.
How can i download it?Replaced ?<br><br><br>On the first he just sort of left. Wouldn't be surprised to be the case here again.Someone at Disney really wants Desplat gone. This is the second time he has been replaced on a major assignment.Crazier? I can't think of many things *less* crazy than a Lorne Balfe replacement scoreWow, an MCU score I might actually like for once. xD

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
