The score has leaked... well, is out in Microsoft Store
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
How bout we enjoy both and not bash the work from either composers?
No, this is the internet, you crazy? :D
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 :)
