@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? ThanksIt is somewhat bizarre that you all are thinking directors actually want to work with Junkie. Surely, the only reason anyone hires him is that they want Zimmer who is not available. Yes, some may have heard Mad Max but it would be silly to think anyone actively wants a Junk score.Bob Badami (as Robert Badami), Melissa Muik, Mark Wherry (as Mark Andrew Wherry are music editors!<br><br>Booklet credits<br><br>Music Editor: Melissa Muik <br>Score Wrangler: Bob Badami<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark WherryI don't think Junkie XL picks the shittest films to work on. It's just that art film directors won't choose him to score their films. Even in RCP, a lot of his colleagues are more well respected than he is. I would argue Benjamin Wallfisch is already more well regarded. Mad Max is an exception because of its unique setting and story line.Metro Expanded Score (1997) By Steve Porcaro & James Newton Howard<br><br>I found an interesting about unreleased tracks from the whole movie by one hour and 57 minutes, it's meant something missing in the movie.

"I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct."<br><br>I agree with you, except that Snyder and I have very different ideas about what makes good (film) music, and how to emphasize it. Ridley Scott is a somewhat similar case. Somehow he has gotten a ton of great music written for his movies over the years despite the fact that his musical instincts are really strange and misguided sometimes. At least Snyder doesn't butcher the scores he gets.<br><br>You're right that a director like Whedon doesn't seem to pay that much attention to how music can enhance his movie. But as someone who cares about film music 95% of the time as albums, not in film, I often find that a director who gets out of the way and just trusts the composer to do his/her thing is preferable to one who gets overly involved with the scoring process and has lots of ideas about how things should sound. That the subsequent scores end up buried or ineffective in their films is a shame, but the music at least tends to be good on its own terms.@mrzimmerfan<br>Oh no, I mean I love the score as a whole. I was just saying my personal highlights. Man of Steel emotionally resonated with me. But that’s cool that you like BVS, I personally just think Man of Steel is more engaging.@mpolonest: But that moments are simply moments, not the entire score, i prefer BvS, because there is a variety in it: Batman, Wonder Woman, Luthor, and is more complex than MoS (also i prefer the movie over MoS).<br><br>And yes, the theme for Superman is cool, but that dosen't make the entire score cool too.and some nice boob representation, too.@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Point Break is a lousy movie, but the score and guitar main theme isn't all that bad. Those 10 minutes on the soundtrack don't do it enough justice at all.<br><br>But again - this is Junkie doing action scoring....Miles better than any of his slow stuff. For me, anyway.
@Edmund <br>He’s definitely not my favorite director, but I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct. One of my biggest pet peeves is when directors/composers just use music as a sonic wallpaper, instead of letting it improve  and add to the scene. John Ottman is a great example. He can write great themes, but he tends to write underscore which adds nothing to the film. That’s why Zimmer, Williams, James Newton Howard, etc. are so good. They treat each moment with care."Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music"<br><br>A matter of opinion, and not an opinion I share.@mrzimmerfan <br>I disagree with you there. I love Man of Steel, I think the themes and the overall bombastic nature of the score work perfectly. As for BVS, I’m not a huge fan honestly. There are some amazing highlights, but the tone of the score is so downbeat. It lacks the soaring elements of “Flight” or “What Are You Gonna Do...” and the action highlights of “Terraforming” or “Escape From Ship”. <br><br>To each their own though :-)For the themes mostly, this Batman and this Superman fit with the themes written by Zimmer. But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)<br><br>I genuinely wish we could hear Justice League, I would have loved to see what he brought to that under Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music.
I still remember when Divergent was released, I was almost immediately dismissive of Junkie XL. Having only heard his remixes and his drum stuff for MoS/300 the first thing I expected was to hear an electronica album with percussion and sound design. So imagine my surprise when I heard several different themes, beautiful string adagios, vocals, and a pretty big variety of styles. And then Run All Night came out and blew me away. Ever since then I’ve been pretty supportive of his work, but I have to agree with everything you guys are saying.<br><br>The past two years have been pretty bad in terms of his ratio of good scores to bad. Black Mass and Brimstone, as I’ve mentioned, are solid scores that veer away from the usual JXL sound. But then we have Deadpool (abrasive), Distance Between Dreams (ok for a stand-alone album), Dark Tower (pretty fun in parts and just bland in others), and Tomb Raider (one of the most generic scores I’ve heard in recent memory). It’s frustrating to see a composer who obviously has talent and a diversity of skills write almost the same thing over and over. <br>And the weirdest thing is, his earlier scores are far more distinctive than his current ones. How did that happen?Nope he released All I see is you Soundtrack last year and it was a great soundtrack..<br><br>Are you sure you're a fan of him?<br><br>So far no project announced for this year but I think there will be at least one...What happened to Marc Streitenfeld? It's been a long time since there has been any involvement or a new score from him. Some years ago, I thought he's going to be the new upcoming star from the horizon of RCP. But then abruptly silence. Any reason or information?@Meta: Really Point Break was interesting?, it's only 10 minutes of music released, and i din't care about it, honestly, and the movie was really, really bad.<br><br>As for Tomb Raider, the music was serviciable in the movie, but i more comfortable with it than Point Break.I'm not sure JXL is picking the projects. In the case of Tomb Raider it seems like WB handed it to him when Joss Whedon asked them to replace him on Justice League. I guess they were annoyed because he had been a frequent collaborator, so giving him another blockbuster straightaway was a soft way of dealing with that.<br><br>Also yes poor JXL really seems pigeonholed. Even though, to be honest, the only style he's proven excellent so far is the rythmic stuff (see the highlights of Fury Road). His rare excursions to other styles have been quite bland to me, so the fact that he's always asked to do the same style isn't really a surprise. Directors/producters who want this specific sound will call JXL, and people who're making a comedy or romance won't even bother and will call another composer.

Hey Guys, Benjamin Wallfisch Has Released The Soundtrack Details Of Annabelle Creation In Film Music Reporter With The Track list And The Soundtrack Photos plus In Cd Version Will Be Released At Silva Screen Records & Digital Version At WaterTower Music.

Waymann2017-08-03 16:06:34
The score will be released digital tomorrow. The samples sound like a mix of orchestral sad/mysterious music en typical horror underscore.

After I saw the movie I can explain a little bit:

Hannad & Volmer (Like the Opening Title)
Our Thoughts Exactly
Volmer Institut
Nobody Ever Leaves
Terrible Darkness
Lockhart's Letter
Magnicifent, Isnt It?
Zutritt Verboten
Volmer's Lab
There is Nothing Wrong With You People
Clearly He's Lost His Mind
The Rite
Actually I'm Feeling Much Better (End Credits)

So I think it would be the chronological order :)

No really original . Gore should have used Zanelli or Balfe

Felix2017-02-26 09:56:35
Why?! Wallfisch did a really good job

Hybrid Soldier2017-03-05 00:27:17
The final correct order is =>

Clearly He's Lost His Mind
Our Thoughts Exactly
Nobody Ever Leaves
Volmet Institut
Terrible Darkness
Zutritt Verboten
Lockhart's Letter
There's Nothing Wrong With You People
The Rite
Magnificent, Isn't It?
Actually I'm Feeling Much Better
Hannah & Volmer

The only mix of "unchronological cues" is "Terrible Darkness", which has short parts from later in the film. "Hannah & Volmer" is the end credits piece.

Edmund Meinerts2017-03-05 01:29:32
Funny, the chronological order is almost the exact reverse of the album order! Now all the horror stuff comes first and the action and thematic cues are more towards the second half, whereas on the album it was more the other way around. I think I prefer it this way, that way the score builds up to the good stuff rather than shooting its wad before the album is halfway over (so to speak...). It's a good score with some great material, but a lot if it is VERY hard listening, especially "Lipstick".

Also, Hybrid, where does "Volmer's Lab" go?

Hybrid Soldier2017-03-05 10:03:29
Ha ! Forgot it !

It's between Lockhart's Letter & There's Nothing Wrong with You People.

Also, fun fact, in the End Credits of the movie there's a credit :

Composed by Hans Zimmer
Arranged by Benjamin Wallfisch
Performed by the Chamber Orchestra of London, Conducted by Gavin Greenaway

Some early ideas Hans wrote did end up in the score. Ribbons is basically the beginning of the waltz in "The Rite", at 2:08.

isildur2017-03-06 06:22:43
Interesting. So, it's just the beginning of the Waltz? How long is this "Ribbons" cue? Do you think we'll get to listen to it anytime soon?

FunnyML2017-06-04 11:26:35
My analysis goes like this:
56 cues in total, only released cues are mentioned here

02 Clearly He's Lost His Mind 3 1:55-End
04 Clearly He's Lost His Mind 1 0:00-1:10
06 Our Thoughts Exactly
10 Nobody Ever Leaves
14 Volmer Institut 2 1:18-End
18 Waiting
27 Terrible Darkness 1 0:00-1:46
28 Volmer Institut 1 0:00-1:18
30 Bicycle
32 Lipstick 1 0:00-2:08
33 Lipstick 2 2:08-End
37 Zutritt Verboten
42 Lockhart's Letter
44 Volmer's Lab
45 Terrible Darkness 2 1:46-End
46 Clearly He's Lost His Mind 2 1:10-1:55
48 There Is Nothing Wrong With You People
50 The Rite

55 Actually I'm Feeling Much Better
56 Hannah And Volmer

@FunnyML That new tracklist made me revisit the score and I realized (again) it's so amazing. I haven't watched the movie but I want to listen to the complete score to hear more of these beautiful melodies

A little late to the game but I just wanted to praise this score a bit. When I first heard Hans wasn't going to be working on this project my heart immediately sank. Anytime Zimmer works with Verbinski, the end result is always spectacular (even Rango is very enjoyable, despite being a huge mess). I'm so glad I took the time to listen to this one though, Wallfisch delivered in HUGE spades!

Both themes introduced are marvelous, and it definitely speaks to Wallfisch's talent that he is able to utilize each idea without getting repetitive. One of the biggest bonuses is the variety of instrumentation and styles, ranging from the more traditional horror tropes to incorporating some beautiful vocals and even a waltz. If I had any complaints in regards to the album, its that it is far too short. By the time it ended I was hungry for more.

Hearing that he is going to score IT and Annabelle 2, I'm both intensely interested and a little nervous that he might get pigeonholed in horror. If you haven't heard his music for the Peter Pan stageplay (on Apple Music) definitely check it out, the man can write fantasy pretty damn good!

7:15 and onward reminds me of something, but I can't pinpoint it. Does anyone else hear a similarity to another score? It feels like Pirates and maybe something else?

Patrick2017-02-07 06:58:42
The Brass at 7:19 is very similar to Broken Arrow, but I guess you are talking about the staccato parts?

Edmund Meinerts2017-02-07 15:47:08
The rhythm and low brass both remind me a little bit of Dark Knight Rises (some parts of Bane's music).
