Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.
Have to agree because if you havenít an interest in Lorneís work then just donít goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply donít click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You donít have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>
> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! Iím scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????
How pathietic that it bothers some ,that some of us are excited about another composers music. Get a life people. Balfe has become a great composer this year so give him a break . If you donít like it , you can find another forumI agree, I'm shocked no one is talking about how great Ramin Djawadi's score is for The Mountain Between Us. Much better than this new Lorne Balfe score, I'm mean really, this Geostorm score is just a constant reminder to other scores from RCP from the past. Nothing original here. Only the track May Day is memorable.I like it too but I don't understand why this thread is full of slobbering fanboys while nobody is talking about, say, Kingsman 2 which is just as good. I don't want to stop anyone talking about his music but did we really need every day this year for someone to go "oh my god I can't wait for Lorne to release another unreleased cue from Ghost in the Shell"? It doesn't contribute anything meaningful and makes this site look even more like a YouTube comments section than it already does.Your right Edmund ..... how dare we take about any other composer apart from Zimmer or John Powell!  Thankfully your point of view is in the minority. There is obviously a reason why he is one of the busiest composers . Geostorm isnít original BUT itís great music and I like it at leastI couldn't agree with you more JBSO99. I don't know what's up this year because a ton of Balfe fanboys seem to have crawled out of the woodwork. He's having a very solid year but people are acting like every score he puts out is a masterpiece or something, which...nah.

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.

Felix reply Replies: 8 || 2017-02-26 01:08:00
After I saw the movie I can explain a little bit:

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

So I think it would be the chronological order :)


Tim2017-02-26 05:41:10
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
Waiting
Terrible Darkness
Bicycle
Lipstick
Zutritt Verboten
Lockhart's Letter
There's Nothing Wrong With You People
The Rite
Feuerwaltzer
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 :

"Ribbons"
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
53 Feuerwalzer
54 Magnificent, Isn't It
55 Actually I'm Feeling Much Better
56 Hannah And Volmer


JBSO992017-06-04 16:37:00
@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

Hideo reply Replies: 1 || 2017-05-28 18:03:39
What's the name of that celestial music when Volmer gives Hannah a new dress and says to her "You're a woman now" ?


FunnyML2017-06-04 11:29:36
One of many unreleased cues, so we don't know (yet).

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 0 || 2017-04-08 20:31:33
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!

I read on Facebook that Wallfisch will score the new It film. Hope it turns out to be true, he'd be a great choice

Benjamin Wallfisch Has Made Another Best Orchestral Score Better Than Lights Out Score. I Didn't Know That Soloist Voice Was From The Trailer
And Then I Hear It In This Soundtrack

I Can Wait To Hear The Score And See The Movie

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).

Hey Hybrid, is Hans overseeing this or completely Ben's project?. Am I mistaken or wasn't this the horror film Hans was supposed to do?


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-10 16:52:45
Hans was going to score it but the score production happened exactly at the moment of the tour so Hans let Ben do it.
