He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.
John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !
Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)

I have been revisiting a lot of scores of the MCU leading up to Infinity War, and what I don't really understand is why they didn't used almost any of the previously established themes in this one. He even created a new theme for Captain America, when he could have used his own theme from Winter Soldier. In fact, I think Winter Soldier's theme is the only one returning. Age of Ultron, although it was a really chaotic score, at least had some continuity and was a lot of fun, but this score feels flat for the most part of it.

And I really enjoyed TWS but for me this was a step down. But I must recognize that there are some great action cues, especially in the Airport Battle, but apart from that I didn't found anything that remarkable.


mpolonest123 2018-04-25 23:43:18
For the most part I agree with you, especially in regards to continuity. Him writing a third theme for Cap makes no sense whatsoever, considering that the credits of TWS had a more traditional take on his CA theme which is basically what he ended up writing for Civil War. Same with the lack of The Falcon theme, which was even used in Ant-Man. I have a feeling this has something to do with what the Russo Bros wanted however.

As for the overall score though, I actually think it works great in context. Considering the film is a thriller, the more nuanced approach Henry took here feels very appropriate. And even though it’s a short motif, I genuinely like the theme for Black Panther.

Is Henry Jackman's WS Captain America theme used at all in this score? I know the osinato pops up but I don't hear the main "Taking a Stand" at all.


Mike2017-01-25 23:22:29
No, for some reason Jackman wrote a third theme for the character in this one. :P The WS ostinato does show up in Cap's Parting Words for the credits, though.

Hey, does anybody know something about the Avengers Suite???

Jay the Dinosaur reply Replies: 6 || 2017-01-23 04:58:10
does anyone know the cue names that appear in the "Tunnel Chase" sequence by chance?


Anonymous2017-01-23 10:18:18
umm....."Stairwell / Tunnel Chase"


Medigo2017-01-23 15:11:55
and before you say it
yes some of it sound a little different in the movie
but it IS the theme
the movie just edited a few parts


Jay the Dinosaur2017-01-23 18:39:10
Let me rephrase...

The main cue used in the album is "Stairwell/Tunnel Chase", but the film version used in the film are these cues.

Stairwell fight - "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase" (First part)
Rooftop fight - "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase" mixed with a section of "Market Fight"
Car chase sequence - "(Unnamed sequence)" mixed with the rest of "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase"


Medigo2017-01-24 10:01:25
I feel like the unnamed sequence IS the tunnel chase, just with some instruments removed (up until Bucky takes the bike)

because otherwise a section of the sessions track just goes unused


Jay the Dinosaur2017-01-25 04:47:35
There actually is a section missing if you think about it. Right where Bucky lands to where Cap steals the car is missing. That's where it trails back, but like you said "maybe it is the tunnel sequence."


Medigo2017-01-25 17:40:25
the movie track also does some re-arranging of certain bits
reuses one part twice and edits out others (about 20 seconds worth)
so that unnamed sequence must have been inserted after to fill the timegap
its a mess really

The magic of Henry Jackman's music still kicks butt. The Captain America: Civil War complete score is another certified blockbuster film soundtrack. I love it!

Medigo reply Replies: 0 || 2017-01-01 21:06:11
yup

and with the way the score really sounds (not the orchestral revised album version)
I'd say its worth listening too

### EDITED ####
I found this on You Tube by complete accident. It's part of Winter Soldier's Recording Sessions. I don't know if its a demo for the film or if its Jackman's Proof-Of-Concept for The First Avenger. Does anyone know what it's called?


Mike2016-10-29 21:36:05
This is the end of the credits for the film. Listen to the last 2 minutes of the end credits, and bam, there it is. Shame the whole score didn't follow this mold.


Joseph Solano2016-11-07 23:43:07
@Mike Ooh... ok. I actually didn't mind the style of the score, but I would have loved more reliance on this style than the more modern style.

meta reply Replies: 2 || 2016-10-28 11:46:54
I dunno about this "Avengers Suite" demo...

sounds like it's just a mashup of the main themes, or a demo of the Civil War track or something...

Anyway, most of this music is already on the OST, so I dont see what the big deal is.


Medigo2016-10-28 13:32:03
I wouldnt call 50 %
'most of the music'

also are you talking about the suit up above?

because thats clearly not the suite from the sessions


Meta2016-10-29 03:16:55
Based on what I heard in the film, I'd say the OST captures pretty much everything you need to hear from this score....

Unless of course you're dying for that piece where Cap holds the helicopter...

Otherwise I heard nothing else of note.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-26 01:49:03
I hope this complete score establishes more themes than the official soundtrack (which was my only complaint).

That "Avengers Suite" is making me wonder if Jackman was initially gonna incorporate the different franchise themes before the directors decided to go the route they did.

As much as I like this score (I really don't get some of the hate it received) even I'll admit that it should have been more faithful to the preexisting ideas.


Mike2016-10-23 20:33:07
Same...I really wanna hear it.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-24 10:21:11
I don't think it got a lot of *hate*...more like a lot of "meh". :p

I would indeed be curious to hear that Avengers Suite. Especially with the Scott Glasgow co-composing tag. He's an excellent composer who I never thought I'd see contributing to an RC score...


Mike2016-10-24 17:16:41
Yeah, I noticed that name...which is nowhere on the OST page. Do we know what he contributed throughout?
