So Hybrid, care to tell us why you randomly deleted comments talking about the leaked recording sessions?Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?
been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.
Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>You fools, the tracklist was but a scam. The tracks simply wanted to EAT you.Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.<br><br>I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.<br><br>I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.Not to disagree for its own sake, but I think Powell has been up there with the greatest film composers since the first HTTYD score. I just wish he'd take on more projects.Yeah, Jesus. This is a prime example of why I'm tempted to think John Powell is more talented than even Williams (yes, I went there).
There's so, so many great themes in the HTTYD scores. And he almost never lets a moment go by where he isn't stating or restating or developing one or more of them (although honestly that's true of a ton of Powell's scores and not an exclusive feature of HTTYD). You can never get bored listening to these, there's always something interesting around the next corner.I got confirmation HGW only wrote Haitian House Shootout (with the help of Mel Wesson). The same ideas were edited into the shorter cue Zoepound, so I'd say you can add this one to his credits.<br><br>Credits on IMDB mentions Paul Linford on the Main Titles.<br><br>Trevor Morris helped Jablonsky on the Ferrari Causeway Chase.<br>Jablonsky worked, for sure, on the Hallway and Helicopter Inserts.<br><br>100% sure Rabin worked on Tapia, Tapia Pissed Off, The Stuff, Wiretap Results, Ocean, Dead Bodies #2, Heart to Heart, Breaking Into Mortuary, Syd's Cover Is Blown, Tapia Has Syd (without Inserts), Prep for Tapia Sneak, Cuba Chase, Guantanamo (those tracks are on the Rabin only-bootleg).Hoping for the Rocketman score to get a release. Loved the score in the movie. Any updates on this ?Additionally, for anyone interested, I've managed to come up with a final list of themes from the series that I believe to be mostly accurate.<br><br>HTTYD 1: Hiccup & Toothless, The Friendship ostinato, Viking Theme, Viking "B" Theme, Dragons, Berk, The Dragon Tamer (Hiccup's unique qualities), Vikings & Dragons, Astrid<br><br>HTTYD 2: Loss, Exploration/Hiccup's Maturance, Drago, Hiccup & Valka, The Alpha, Stoick & Valka, The Chief<br><br>HTTYD 3: The Furies ostinato, Love, The Dragon Liberators, Moving On, The Hidden World, Toothless & The Light Fury, Grimmel, Dragon Trappers<br><br>A list more impressive than Star Wars, and with almost every new theme returning for the next film, while keeping most of the base themes. A masterful achievement by John Powell and his crew, as others have said!Just finished watching the movie, and while it's not much more than fine, it's sure as hell better than every other Star Wars movie that's come out since The Force Awakens (minus the ugly fucking visuals). <br><br>However the score is absolutely amazing. Powell's adaptation and development of the new Han Solo theme from Williams is flawless, the callbacks to other themes from the series are mostly appropriate (and good on him for not using the Force theme once!) and Powell's original material is fresh and exciting in a way that even Williams himself hasn't been able to pull off with the new films. <br><br>Powell might very well be up there with the greatest film composers if he continues to produce work like this from now on (which from HTTYD 3 seems very possible!)

I know this was a “band-jam” score but I’m surprised at how much of Wallfisch’s voice I hear throughout. Mainly the chord progressions, I keep hearing the DNA of It and Bitter Harvest with a dash of Peter Pan.

As for the score itself, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to give this a full listen. The mix between orchestral/electronic/gospel/jazz surprisingly feels cohesive and never slows down.


Mephariel2018-07-31 17:07:01
One of my favorite scores of the past decade with Zimmer's name attached to it.


Mike 2018-07-31 18:21:40
This score is really solid. I'm not really familiar with Wallfisch's solo stuff, so I can't tell who did what on this one, but the end result is really cohesive. The themes are great, too.


mpolonest1232018-07-31 19:03:48
Going by what Hybrid said I’m guessing everybody had a hand in everything, definitely a lot of cross-pollination of styles (aside from the obvious Pharrell material). I definitely hear Hans’s voice in the cello writing and Rocket Cues, and “Katherine Calculates” sounds very much like The Da Vinci Code.

And Mike, if you haven’t heard it yet check out “A Cure For Wellness”. IMO Wallfisch’s best score, which showcases his horror/fantasy/orchestral styles all in one.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-01 13:17:45
There is a lot great stuff by Wallfisch, like the mencionated Bitter Harvest, Bhopal, Hours...

If not, does anyone know what order it should be in?
Thanks

Sounds a lot like Horner about 10 minutes in. Not that it's a bad thing.

According to the booklet credits.

Hybrid, do you know how Hans was involved with Adele's Grammy performance? Benjamin Wallfisch thanked him in a post for bringing him onto the project.


Hybrid Soldier2017-02-13 19:48:23
Hans & Ben arranged the song for Adele. Like they did with Pharrell 2 years ago for his new version of "Happy".

Hybrid, with which tracks did you make the suite?

ei18 reply Replies: 3 || 2016-12-01 01:18:53
Thanks for the suite!! Is it really not coming out until June 2017?


0-^-02016-12-01 06:07:51
Looks more like January 6th to me.


Ei182016-12-01 16:44:14
I thought that too, but other scores on this site have the release date with the month first.


Ali2016-12-31 04:39:37
It would make the most sense if it came out January 6th, since that is the official date for the movie release everywhere. They have no reason to not release it until June.

And how come Hans' name isn't there in the announced list of Oscar eligible scores (for "Hidden Figures")

Dudu2016-12-14 06:50:44
I think that's because of the rule that disqualifies a score where too many people are credited (ie. The dark knight)...maybe hz chose to drop his name so the score could be eligible

Hey Hybrid, do you by any chance know, what the hell is going on on DUNKIRK's FB page? They've been live streaming the same view since last 13 hrs with the same ticking music.

Oh my, I'm Speechless. thanks Hybrid for the suite.


Mike2016-12-01 03:33:03
Nice! Did Zimmer, Wallfisch (& Pharrell) do roughly equal amounts here? Or is it mostly Wallfisch? Mostly Zimmer? :P


JamesT2016-12-01 05:18:58
Oh, wow. Spectacular!


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-01 18:02:21
It's Pharrell's project.


Anonymous2016-12-01 22:51:25
so he did most of it????


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-01 23:01:46
The main piano theme is definitely is. He was the basis of the music, some cues are pure Pharrell which I didn't include in the suite. Hans & Ben helped him at his request.

But that sort of score is usually a lot of jamming in the same room, don't try to figure out too much who did what here, sounds a bit like everybody, it's Pharrell, Hans & Ben !


Mike2016-12-01 23:05:34
The RCP-process never does cease to surprise us. lol.


Gotham Rogue2016-12-14 02:54:45
I like the excerpt a lot. It's certainly unique - it has that strange spin that they love to put on scores (particularly recently) - but it also is undeniably an RCP score. It seems like a good blend of these two methods, much better than some recent efforts. Hope the full score reflects this!

A Golden Globe nomination. Hope it'll win!


Anonymous2016-12-13 01:42:16
Normally I'd say no, but since Pharrell is involved, it actually has a chance of winning because people would scream racism if he didn't win lol
