To rockhound, <br><br>Well sir, apparently you just don't like Bruce Willis. That "smiling" you speak of is part of his charm as an actor. That's just how his face is. I don't have a problem with it, and honestly I've never heard people complaining about it. Until now. But fair enough, you have the right of an opinion. I'm just sharing mine.<br><br>Cheers.Still waiting for news. From what I heard, as the film is Alcon / Warner / Sony-Columbia co-production, WaterTower is not releasing the soundtrack, and neither is Sony. Alcon is... The thing is, I don't think they ever released a soundtrack on their own before lol... Might be why all this is taking a little time... But it's coming. :)Sorry, I ment GitS*I think this is even more expected than Dunkirk so a score release I think will definitely happen.<br><br>And this has been in the hands of Zimmer and Wallfisch for more than two months. GuyS was a different story because Lorne entered the project in the last month before the release.They dont have to give track titles when they announce a release. Remember Dunkirk, the score was announced in advance but track names arrived on release day!
This is score is easy money for the studio... Of course there will be a score release.Maybe coz the track titles are spoiler-ish.Any news on an OST release date? I hope this isn't another Ghost in the Shell. It would surprise me if a Zimmer release for a film this big was not released, but isn't the record label cutting it kind of close, with not even an announcement made with less than two weeks before the premiere?Yeah, I'm not sure why Gavin Greenaway is listed as conductor and there are a lot of credits associated with orchestra recordings, because I am almost 100% sure that the entire score is made from samples. If you aren't sure, have a listen to Track 8: Ambushed and at 0:48, tell me if those strings playing the melody line aren't samples! I would also suggest listening to Track 7: Gatekeeper (keep an ear out for the string resonance of the cello) and Track 9: The Tusk of Ganesh (listen for the high sustained strings on E above the piano theme). Those examples are the most obvious to me (in my own opinion). Overall, the score just has such a clean and precise sound (especially the percussion) that I am convinced no (or very few) live musicians were recorded.The score is actually great! But I wonder, if there would be the complete score or the recording sessions released. Because, for example, when Vayentha calls Sims to make a report, there is a music playing that is not contained in the original score.
Ask the stupids who voted ! lolWhy does this already have a 2/5 rating?The first Kingsman is by far superior than Civil War and it has nothing similiar to The Winter Soldier. <br><br>Civil War for me was quite bland and generic but the first Kingsman has some very good themes and great strong action cues.<br><br>On the other hand I really liked The Winter Soldier, but not as much as the Kingsman scores.Lorne had plenty of time, and recorded this in April, so no, nothing from Pinar will remain.@ Hybrid, what do you know about this release? Lorne rewrite the entire score? Or he use any material from Pinar Toprak? Do you know if Pinar recorded the score or just write before she was replaced? Thanks
Finally!Loving this weeks releases from Balfe from Ghost . It is an amazing scoreHere<br><br>http: // www.hans-zimmer.com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1597<br><br>The score is getting release by WaterTower3 left ! ;)My fault, it was "Rage and Serenity"

Is that suite all Zimmer wrote here, or was he involved in other tracks, too? "We are the Designers" sounds like him, and his Facebook page posted it as music "he" wrote along with Jasha Klebe and Jacob Shea.

Hi all, stunning music out here, I am so fancy in Hans music.
Anyone has a clue what is the Menu music from Blu-ray edition of PE II? I am pretty sure I have heard it before, Shazam can't find it, I am guessing ... By the time I was looking deep in my memory I remembered :) It is "Arrival of the Birds"

Smith reply Replies: 0 || 2016-12-01 12:28:01
I've listened to the score now several times, and i have to say that it really blows me away. It is SO beautiful, has its themes, its complexity, the fun-factor, the drama, everything in it. It's like a phenomenal journey when you've listend to the whole score. It's so good that I'm actually shocked that it's not hyped by the fans or recognized that much and that SUCH a quality is being used for a documentary. It sounds like a superb blockbuster with a HUGE score. To Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe: thank you VERY much for this amazing and beautiful work. You guys are so talented and i'm so excited to hear more and more from you in the future. And to everyone else here: Give it a listen, it is an amazing work and score!

Brent reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-23 08:52:42
Am I the only one, or do I sense a bit of "Gravity" in Chinstrap Penguins" and a bit of "Avatar" in Singing Indri? The end of Chinstrap Penguins even has that "airlock sudden ending" sound that was prevalent in Gravity.

Joshua reply Replies: 4 || 2016-10-18 02:38:54
There's a couple chords rattling around in there that sound very Trevor Rabin-ish. I love what I'm hearing so far.


Sean2016-11-13 21:15:17
Totally agree. From what I've read Zimmer and Rabin worked closely together in the past, and I get the vibe that Zimmer has just ripped a lot off from him.


Edmund Meinerts2016-11-14 02:44:30
More like the other way around, I'd think...I mean yeah, Rabin does have a recognizable enough style, but he pulls a LOT of tricks from Zimmer.


rockhound2016-11-14 10:23:48
zimmer and rabin didnt work closely in the past. the only time rabin worked on a zimmer score was Days of Thunder and zimmer worked only on Armageddon, but with gregson-williams and jablonsky were 2 zimmer guys involved. i think rabin got more influenced by mark mancina. the choir in Deep Blue Sea for example has the same sound as the choir in Twister and also the orchestrations in alot of scores have the same style. i guess don harper is one reason for that. if u listen to rabins solo song album Can't Look Away or the Yes album Talk, you can hear the trevor sound and style of theme/melody writing, which you also hear in his scores. its all over the place.


Brent2016-11-15 16:59:49
I actually very much hear Jablonsky in the first track. The percussion sounds like it's ripped straight from the first Transformers film.

Watched the first episode. Must say Jasha and Jacob have done a really good job. Really liked the "Albtross Dance" and "The March of the Red Crabs". And the main theme is used in all the right places effectively with different variations and moods.


rockhound2016-11-07 22:57:55
i have to agree. very beautiful effective music. hans' main theme is very strong and the suite at the beginning fits perfectly. at the end, right before the diaries, the suite is a bit different, because the end has just the choir without the drums/percussions. sounds beautiful. some action and suspense music sounds like typical rcp music, but the rest is very lovely, especially the emotional parts. these moments have nice melodies and fantastic orchestration.

It could be a great opportunity to compare two BBC natural documentaries soundtracks maked by top level film music composers. Which one is better, Hans Zimmer & team "Planet Earth II", or Steven Price "The Hunt". For me it's something very interesing.


Morgan Joylighter2016-11-03 05:15:24
I hardly think Steven Price deserves to be considered anywhere near the same level as Zimmer yet. Or probably ever.


price2016-11-03 12:48:35
Maybe not, but from what we've heard, The Hunt is a far more satisfying soundtrack.

These dull tunes sound like library music from a company that mass produces generic cookie cutter TV soundtracks, rather than a crafted score.


Paul2016-11-03 15:32:38
I wouldn't say Price is lower level composer. His style and approach is completely different from Hans'. Price and Zimmer are incomparable. But there's one thing to say about Price - he hasn't done anything original since Gravity and hasn't stepped away from the same sound patterns. I mean, yes it's been only three years, but seriously, at least little changes could have been made. Fury, The Hunt and Suicide Squad all sound the same. Melodically they don't, but if we talk musical structure - Price's works are identical. Yet, score for The Hunt corresponds to the visuals very nicely. I'm pretty sure the same is with Planet Earth II.


qnebra2016-11-05 00:42:52
Paul - I compare only scores and working in series, not style of composers.

Mike2016-10-29 02:31:10
I can honestly say I love all three of them! Zimmer's suite reminds me in style of "The Egg Travels" from Dinosaur by James Newton Howard.


aldan2016-10-29 03:28:39
@Mike except that The Egg Travels is far more better, more original, more inspring, and more original than this Zimmer's two note, unoriginal, trailer music piece that i must say, to be honest, will fit the picture just nicely.



Joshua2016-10-29 04:31:28
You know what else is unoriginal? Using the word original three time in one sentence.


rockhound2016-10-29 07:49:48
part of the suite is the music from the extended trailer and yes, the music fits perfectly to the images. zimmers main theme is simple, but very lovely. also the other 2 tracks are nice.


0-^-02016-10-29 21:36:16
Been a while since the man wrote something uplifting and positively spirited like this. The later half of the suite is full of win.


Miguel2016-10-30 06:20:27
Doesn't sound anything like Zimmer ??? Did he actually have anything to do with it apart from his name ?

Anonymous reply Replies: 1 || 2016-10-29 19:44:07
Hybrid...or anybody: is there a particular reason that, whenever Hans lands projects like these, he typically ends up just doing the main theme? I guess that makes it less pressing on his time, obviously, but is it monetary? Is it that he wants to give a gig to some of his fellow composers? Pretty much any time you hear Hans is working on TV or a video game, "main theme by" is a given, while the score is usually someone else (except Through the Wormhole, maybe).


Mike2016-10-29 19:48:54
I would guess it's a combo of all those things...This way, they have a big overarching musical piece for the show and have Zimmer's name on the credits, while not requiring him to devote months to the series.

And as an aside, I prefer his work on TV and video games sometimes to what he does in movies. I like all of it, usually, but with TV and games he seems more willing to go into straight power-theme territory (IMO, what the man does best), and technicalities about doing things "differently" and being experimental don't get in the way as much.
