Great new podcast with Steve. Check it out, it's worth it - https://www.score-movie.com/single-post/2018/04/24/Episode-6 -Steve-Jablonsky-Behind-the-Score-Trent-Reznor-Atticus-Ross- Name-That-ScoreI'm guessing that the end credits will be where we hear what Williams wrote for the film, a concert arrangement of the new theme he contributed. So it'll start with the classic fanfare and then lead into that, and then if there's any time left to fill they'll put in some of Powell's material.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.<br><br>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 itís a short motif, I genuinely like the theme for Black Panther.Listening to all these fan made covers!!! They all are more than awesome. Its feels good how Hans Zimmer is inspiring the world around to create such a great music. Lots of applause to all the fans who have submitted their covers over here. Good luck !!!<br>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.<br><br>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.
This might sound like a rather... odd question, but I did ask it when it came to Rogue One. Is John Powell going to use a 'classic' arrangement of the End Credits Suite, or is he writing something entirely new? The end credits theme is pretty much a staple of all the films so far and it would be interesting to know what Powell has in mind for his score there.And the release date has finally come !<br><br>MAY 25th !<br><br>Will it be Powell's masterpiece ? I hope so ! But it's going difficult to sound better than HTTYD !Yep, I noticed. And in mp3<br>I guess YT is still the better wayThere's a way to do it but I won't tell you for fear that I get HULK SMASHED by Hybrid. Besides, the file is in 112 kbps, it's barely worth the trouble (and I'm not even much of an audiophile).totally agreed...<br>maybe some way to hack into
I hope the Imperial March is in the score.Thank You NotaPix. That was really helpful. :)<br>I've never found this one either. It's the biggest gap in my HGW collection probably. Wonder why it never got a proper score release, sure it's a bit mickey-mousey and insubstantial but they could have at least put 30 minutes or so on the regular album, not just one track...hello Piyush VC<br>sorry, I hope I have correctly understood your question, I do not know English (google translator).<br>I do not remember well how long my covers have been published here after my submission.<br>but if you would like to publish your own cover of the composer Hans Zimmer here, it is more correct that you address the questions of this type to 'antas' admin.<br>as I said, I hope my answer is relevant to your question.<br>bye :)Anywhere I can find a complete recording of this soundtrack? I've looked everywhere.
Hey there.. Your music score is really good, I liked them all. I wanna know within how many days after your submission, were your tracks posted over here?Can anyone point me to where I can get a copy of this? I'd love to have this in my collection.It's been nearly 27 years since this came out in 1991.Nop, you're not the only one.<br><br>I can say everything i listen John Powell is something with quality and personality.<br><br>How to Train Your Dragon is one of his best. You are missing out. <br><br>But I may be the only person who thinks Face/Off is one of his best scores. I love that score more than nearly any John Powell scores.

Can anybody give me a list of the names of themes and motifs in the movie. I would appreciate it.


Macejko2017-03-23 08:27:55
Sure, pal.

Blue female troops theme (heard in "Nameless Order")
Great Wall theme ("What a Wall")
William's theme ("The Great Wall")
Tao Tei (monsters) theme (first heard in "First Battle")
Tovar's guitar motif (briefly heard in "First Battle")

These are the most prominent/identifiable ones.


Joseph Solano2017-03-25 18:06:14
Thanks. Would the Blue Female Troops theme be considered Lin Mai's theme as well? And does Damon's character have a theme?


Macejko2017-03-25 21:46:35
I would need to rewatch the movie to be absolutely sure she doesn't have a separate theme. And the name of Damon's character is William, his theme is listed above :)


Joseph Solano2017-03-28 02:08:15
I wanted to see the movie and never did. Now I know what to listen for when I see it. Thanks for the help!

This score is a lot of fun, honestly. Ramin has written better individual pieces than anything here but I'd say this is his most consistently entertaining album, never really gets boring (although sometimes I feel like he does sort of run out of ideas for action music rhythms and falls back on the same type of percussion a lot). Especially the first five tracks are great stuff, just very fun and entertaining. Love the Chinese choir additions.

Macejko, Mr. Djawadi Fanboy, you've been uncharacteristically quiet about this one, what did you think?


Macejko2017-03-05 10:14:35
Well Edmund my man, I obviously loved this album as well and I think that if we take GoT 6 out of the equation, this is Ramin's best score of the last year.
The first half of the album is a pure bliss for me, and although the second half doesn't pack that powerful of a punch, it's still great. After seeing the movie itself I was pleasently surprised of how many elements of the film were actually given a theme (like Pedro Pascal's character for example), albeit a small one.
When compared to Warcraft (which I also adored), that movie had sort of a primal, brute-force thing going on (obviously related to the nature of the Orcs). On the other hand, TGW is much more sweeping and adventurous and albeit a also fantasy film from the same year, I'd say those two scores are not interchangable at all. It just goes to show that Ramin puts a lot of serious thought into a movie, even if it's not a cinematic masterpiece (which, let's be honest, neither of those films were).

Epic score.
A favorite together with Warcraft and Gears of War 4.

Expanded European CD Edition (with two more tracks & different cover) will be relased on January 13, 2017.


jjluffy2017-01-15 11:05:00
It would seem that it is the digital version that contains 20 tracks. There seems to be only one cd version with 18 tracks.


rockhound2017-01-16 13:44:33
i really like that end song. very nice melody. would be cool to have it on cd.

Macejko2016-12-23 16:27:32
Thanks for the info, pal! I absolutely adore this score. Although it seems that there is only one track composed by Ramin, the other two appear to be songs by some chinese artists.

MB reply Replies: 5 || 2016-12-16 17:18:11
I've already listened to it. So what can I say? Nothing special. Yes, there are some interestings moments like flute and good choir. But... The main theme reminds me Backdraft and Beyond rangoon (this is not good), but in sum the score is 3 stars from 5. Badelt's Promise alot better.


Per2016-12-16 17:32:12
I hardly check out new scores anymore.. but Backdraft and Beyond Rangoon ? .. two of my favorite scores .. maybe I should try this then.

Btw. MB, do you mean the result is not good (even though Backdraft and Beyond Rangoon are), or that Beyond Rangoon (and/or Backdraft) is not good (the themes) ? Certainly Beyond Rangoon have one of the best theme(s) ever imho.


MB2016-12-16 17:42:37
Yes, I mean the result is not good (even though Backdraft and Beyond Rangoon are, which I love very much). Maybe the others don't hear the influence of Backdraft and Beyond rangoon, but I can hear it. The result is like I said, nothing special. But the other side this score hasn't the underscore crap, thats the good side. Strange thoughts))


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-16 17:46:11
It honestly sounds nothing like those scores... lol

It just sounds like Ramin, a more "actiony" Game of Thrones and less "darky" Warcraft, closer to Clash of The Titans...


MB2016-12-16 17:50:05
I mean that there are some elements in main theme which reminds these scores. That's it. I agree that its closer to clash of the titans, but more asian style.


Anonymous2016-12-17 12:57:38
I like it. Esp after the terrible Gears score this is a nice surprise.

This flute in Nameless order (1st half) reminds me Beyond Rangoon. This is cool)

Wow, honestly didn't expect this. The string writing and percussion are 100% Ramin but the instrumentation and vocals are incredible. Really looking forward to this now.
