This^^^^Opening track available here : https://theplaylist.net/exclusive-stream-harry-gregson-willi ams-warsaw-zoo-1939-score-zookeepers-wife-20170329/it's just suggestive (between that and how he was announced so close to release) that LB was brought on at almost if not the very last minute to redo some of Mansell's early cues.<br><br>Also Clint's been eerily silent about the whole film on his Twitter and social media while Balfe has been hyping it quite a bit.I gotta agree with ds here. I love BACKDRAFT and I'm a pretty big hz fan but there is no comparison. Especially with HTTYD. IMO zimmer cannot orchestrate in the same way with an organic orchestra the same way as shore, Willian's and even powell. He adds a lot of extra layers through synth.  But zimmer is the best at the style of music he produces.The opening was definitely Lorne, it sounded like Terminator Genisys ! lol
It's not about who "needs" a break or "deserve" it. She got a chance, she blew it in the mind of people making this (probably very lame) film.One is HZ, the other (the album) is not. End of story... :PYes please! :)Listening to this complete score for the first time and it's really striking how different the mix is on the album. The snare drums are much further forward, and everything sounds a lot brighter and immediate but also "thinner" on the album. Whereas the film mix has synth parts I didn't even know exist, like at the very beginning of the main titles/"Fighting 17th".<br><br>I'm trying to decide which version I like more, and it's difficult! The film versions sound "richer" but I miss the ballsy snare drum rhythms...Hans Zimmer...Take me to your planet.<br><br><br><br><br>
im sure its because bruckheimer wants his typical sound and for this type of movie, its no surprise, that he wants a rcp score. i was very surprised when bruckheimer accepted christopher young for Deliver Us from Evil. but that movie was not typical rcp territory and the director worked also with young before.Well that is depressingly predictable. Pinar Toprak is incredibly talented, and it's not that Balfe *isn't*, but he's so ubiquitous. He's not the one in need of a big break. And for all Zimmer's talk recently of raising the profile of female composers in Hollywood...jerry bruckheimer came on board for re-shots, so ofc they also have to change the score now. i like lorne, but a score by pinar toprak would have been really nice.just came back from film.....did they shamelessly end up getting Balfe to rescore Mansell's main thematic material in the first half of the film including the shelling/opening titles (which btw, have the GHOST IN THE SHELL title appear TWICE?)? Because it's so different from the IMAX preview music wise, I was so bummed as Mansell's main theme was just amazing there, and in the finished it's just...eh? Mansell's original theme shines through the final third very nicely though.Wow, it's a surprise. From what i know, the movie should have arrived in 2016 and she worked on the movie for almost two years when it was in production.
Apparently she was replaced.What happened with Pinar Toprak? It supposed she will make the scoreBalfe is scoring Geostorm as well. Dudes everywhere!Great News. Enjoyed Planet Earth II immensely.One cues is missing. Rescue theme, with will.i.am voice i guess<br>04 Mad 2 1m11 Traveling Alakey<br>

The prodigal son returns! I like Atli a lot, sad that he doesn't get the same sort of assignments that Balfe/Djawadi/Jackman do. But this sounds pretty good!

Wunderbar wow

Epic work by Atli! For me one of his best.


Edmund Meinerts2016-11-07 15:57:22
It's nice to listen to, but I don't really think it's one of his best. It makes for a better album than e.g. The Eagle, Babylon A.D. or Season of the Witch, but there are individual themes and moments in those scores that far outshine anything in Bilal (there's nothing here to rival "Crusades", "Babylon Requiem" or "The Return of the Eagle"). And I don't think it's anywhere near Mortal Instruments, which is his best overall score so far.

Still, like I said, it's a decent score and nice to hear from a guy who's been MIA for so long. Just not the glorious return I had hoped for.

For those "shocked" by Inferno, here's some excellent old school adventure score by Atli. :)


isildur2016-10-14 03:43:24
I still don't understand why Atli doesn't get some nice, big projects. He has so much talent. Liked the suit. I hear a bit of Prince of Egypt, which is a good thing.

I was not shocked. Just disappointed to be proved again that Zimmer lost his touch to write decent, memorable music.


Morgan Joylighter2016-10-28 05:45:56
RE:Anonymous, he has done no such thing. Interstellar was only two years ago. And the second half of Inferno contains plenty of music which is AT LEAST decent, but it seems most people are tuning out before they get to the good stuff. Zimmer fans these days are so spoiled...twenty years ago the same score would have been considered mind-blowingly epic. How many times does the poor man have to reinvent himself before fans will be satisfied?


Morgan Joylighter2016-10-28 05:46:47
And I'll add he simply hasn't been hired to write the "memorable" music recently. You can't accuse him of losing his touch for simply doing his job as he is asked.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-28 11:01:35
That's the thing - he doesn't have to reinvent himself every time, in my eyes. I wish he would sometimes just kick back and do what he does best.

Also, a lot of the "decent" stuff in the back half of Inferno is only so because it's straight reprises of DVC and A&D.


Anonymous2016-10-29 11:36:55
Exactly. Recent years he tried to pull a Madonna. Change and experimentation for the sake of experimentation and looking and sounding like 'I am so edgy, I still have it'.

Like every artists his best work was in the middle part of his carreer.

The good stuff he releases recently are usually rehashes or reprises of magnificent works he wrote many years ago.

Also Hans used to be special with his synthy approach years ago. But these days every videgame, movie or trailer has it so it is total not special or exciting anymore.

But each has their own opinion :p

As for Bilal. Awesome work!
