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.

Does anyone know where you could find the variations on Duck Shoot, specifically the one during the King's death in Episode 2?


Pablo2018-11-24 08:54:47
Looking for that one too, season 2 "future king" is very similar

Ahmad reply Replies: 2 || 2016-11-30 05:55:40
Does anyone else hear a hint of Arcade/Terraforming from Man Of Steel in Duck Shoot? The woodwind/flute starting 2:25 specifically. Really interesting.

Can't divulge the source. But it's happening.


George2018-01-22 20:31:14
Lol okay I trust you, its awesome how RGW has broken from the comedic scores and is getting some really good opportunities to create some pretty incredible music


Joshua2018-01-22 21:57:00
I completely agree!


olive2018-01-23 02:09:08
I hope he does a better job than in WW. I like the main theme, but I'm not much of a fan of the RGW score. The most striking moments of it are those in which it mentions King Arthur or The Last Samurai.


Miralsice2018-01-27 11:51:50
It would be great. But I can't believe it without any proofs or sources.

Is there anybody who knows the chronological order of the 2 seasons scores? I've seen the show, but I can't figure it out.

Ian reply Replies: 3 || 2018-01-19 05:08:37
Jeez, I knew Lorne worked on this, and my assumption was that his contribution was fairly substantive, but I didn't realize he worked on every single cue (at least those on the OST). I'm not sure how I feel about that "Music by Rupert Gregson-Williams" credit now (I know it has everything to do with contracts, but I'm thinking about the principle / artistic integrity side).


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-19 10:21:06
I mean, Tony Clarke and Evan Jolly are on practically every single cue as well. My gut feeling is that these aren't fully accurate credits yet.


james (now james callahan)2018-01-20 02:01:35
This is one of those scores in which all composers receive credit for all cues even though they have not composed each note of music. This happens all the time in rcp (Kung Fu Panda, Batman v Superman, Megamind, BossBaby, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight).


james (now james callahan)2018-01-20 02:09:23
PS: the assumption that everything is Balfe is subjective. In the same way that you drew the conclusion that he is the composer of everything and the credit of RGW is doubtful, I could also say that Balfe did nothing and RGW did everything. Or that no one has done anything and almost everything
in the score is the result of the work of these additional composers.
The credits do not elucidate anything in this case.

Kalman reply Replies: 1 || 2016-12-01 18:17:36
Does anyone know why this score is not available on CD at most sites? Even at amazon they say it ships in 2-3 weeks. At most of international amazon sites it is out of stock. At e-bay I could only find one copy. Other online stores either don't list it or it is out of stock too. I find it a bit strange considering it was released about two weeks ago by Sony which is not a small label.

Same question!

thearmusicgroup reply Replies: 3 || 2016-10-10 23:35:26
I am way more looking forward to Hans' smaller works and releases (like The Crown and Planet Earth) than his upcoming big ones like Inferno. I feel like there are two sides of him now, and the shows and films that are smaller do not pressure him to emulate that stupid generic Hollywood action sound. Stuff like this still reminds me of his older work.


fixed2016-10-11 00:01:15
You're right. Also, Hans's old co-work like here (Balfe & Rupert G-W) still better than CHAPPiE's


AndrewM2016-10-13 06:43:12
Didn't know Balfe was also doing this ? Any sample of the score yet ?

hans zimmer "time" (inception) is nearly the same as "duck shoot".

Does anyone know the name of the tracks that you hear in episode 2 when King George dies and the scenes following this event ? Can't seem to find it on the score... It's a different variation on The Duck Shoot and Main theme. Sounds even more beautiful than the version on the album.


Vivien2016-11-07 10:27:53
Well, the answer is in your question, it's a variation of "Duck shoot".


Waymann2016-11-07 12:36:32
Too bad... I watched the whole series now and there is I belief more music that is not included in the official release.


Hybrid Soldier2016-11-07 19:15:28
lol series like that have like 4 to 6 hours written for them... OSTs are usually 1 hours...


Felix2016-11-07 20:01:07
@Hybrid

Somebody persons don't know it...lol

Do you know what Lorne did ok this here, at first it stands additional composer & now co-composer?!


Waymann2016-11-08 09:05:06
I do know this, but it's kind of frustrating when you hear good music in the series and they are not included in the soundtrack. Instead some boring uninteresting tracks are included. Of course these soundtrack albums need to be a good listening experience for the big crowd...

Out of respect to my source's job I cant say. But its legit.


Anonymous2016-11-02 01:29:04
At least it's not Wonder Woman. Wonder Women is probably one of those lame knock-off movies that opens at the same time as a major blockbuster. Probably about a group of women who gain superpowers after a toxic accident...


Joshua2016-11-02 02:56:34
Whoops. Typo, my bad.


Everan2016-11-02 03:16:56
Oh God, I hope this is true! He can use Zimmer's theme and with the small excerpts of Hacksaw Ridge, he'll rock!

This track sounds just like time/journey to the line. Did Hans actually work on this or is it just his name?


Mike2016-10-13 17:46:16
Same question...maybe they temped "Safe Now" and that's where the Hans part comes from... :P But he did very possibly do it anew, for all we know.


ei182016-10-13 22:15:07
Yea, my first thought was "Safe Now" when I listened to this.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-13 22:16:01
Really guys ? To me it was more Tron Legacy... lol


MB2016-10-14 00:46:58
Yeah, for me it's like basic Tron:legacy theme. But with some interesting strings on background AND Thin red line/Time/safe now element.


Miguel2016-10-14 03:12:23
Where do you think Trin copied from ! The maestro obviously


ei182016-10-14 07:03:15
Did Hans work on the score? I remember when he was first announced, but I thought I saw recent promotional material with only Rupert's name on it.

Also it is for sure a mix of Safe Now and Tron. Melody is more Safe Now and the sound of it is more Tron. Not sure if that makes any sense.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-14 10:30:53
