Sure, Home sounds like a country version of Time, but is so underrated.. the whole score is very nice but nothing compared to Pirate, except Finale maybe.came back to this one for a while. always found "silver" and "home" very soothing.@Superultramega<br><br>What's odd is that the PR theme was used in the marketing. Same with Zimmers material being used in the Justice League trailers, so obviously the studio liked it enough. Probably the directors choice.@superultramega: The three Star Trek movies are compose by the same composer, and the producer is J.J Abrams.<br><br>And the theme is the same.The score enchances the more emotional and physcical side of the character, and i love that.<br><br>I believe this movie don't benefit a more classical adventure score, reminds (outiside, the movie is an adaptation for the 2013 reboot) the vision of Jason Graves for that game, saving distances.<br><br>And yeah, there is a ideas everywhere the score.
The thematic continuity complaint is a problem with the movie industry in general now. Not just Pacific Rim. It's a problem with Marvel, DC, and hell, any movie series really. Even the new TMNT movies, as good as Jablonsky's score for the second one was, still couldn't keep the original themes. <br><br>The only ones that do keep the original thematic material lately have been Transformers, Star Wars, Star Trek (at least the first 2's scores I don't know about the 3rd's), Pirates of the Caribbean, a few animated film series, and Harry Potter. <br><br>Not sure if this is a director or composer fault (probably director/studio), but it's just something we're going to have to deal with for a while until the next phase of film score trends come along.I think one of the things that plague this score (and many others) is that nowadays everyone feels the need to not only have a opinion, but share it as quick as possible on social media or message boards. But music isn't always likable at first listen. Usually (and I speak for myself here, but I'm pretty sure any people feel the same) the quicker I love a song, the quicker I'll get bored by it and forget it. On the other hand, scores or songs that took me a few listens to fully appreciate tend to have a much better longevity in my playlists.<br><br>At first I wasn't impressed by this new JXL effort and, if I had listened to it only once or twice, I would have quickly labelled it as "typical JXL drummy stuff but not as cool as Mad Max". But after seeing the movie and giving the album a few more spins, I'm now ranking this among his best scores. It's packed with crazy ideas popping up everywhere, neat sound effects, an epic main theme and a few very touching light moments.<br><br>I'll admit it's a tough listening experience, mainly because of the very long tracks which sometimes tend to 'hide' the great stuff. But it's so damn worth it. In the context of the film it's simply awesome and in perfect sync with the pictures, it enhances the emotion, the action and the epicness in a way not many scores do. Junkie XL definitely improved over the past few years. Of course this score bears his mark and his sound, it's certainly not a classical score, but it's incredibly rich and detailed. It's just not obvious, and requires a bit of patience and perseverance. I'm happy I didn't judge it immediately, and I can only invite you to spend a little more time with it before dismissing it (and its composer) publicly.<br><br>Just my 2 cents :-)There are some fun action cues and an interesting mix of electronics that sounds like a hybrid of Tron Legacy and Chappie but is honestly so forgettable outside of that. Why on earth did they opt out of using Ramin's themes? <br><br>It would be like if POTC2 came out and instead of using "He's a Pirate" or any of the other motifs, Disney hired a Hans Zimmer protege to come in and write their own take on the material. When I go to see Star Wars I expect Star Wars. With this I expected at least ties to the first one.So I'm guessing no one knows if Zimmer did this or not?It is sound like that.<br><br>Multiple times in the score, there is sounds like Tron
I just said this before and I want to say it again: <br>Shao industries sound like Tron LegacyAt least Tomb Raider and A Wrinkle of Time have a theme.Agreed. Itís simply not that memorable. Out of Pacific Rim 2, a wrinkle in time, tomb raider, and hurricane heist I thought for sure at least ONE would be a hit. Unfortunately all four of them seem pretty forgettable. Really hoping Hans puts something memorable and iconic together for X Men Dark Phoenix.The first movie has memorable theme and enjoyable action tracks, this one, has one or three actions cues i have enjoyed, more than than i expected, but the main theme is forgetteable.<br><br>Jablonsky would fit if is the Jablonsky, for example, for TF5 or first Transformers (and i am guilty pleasure fan for Battleship)<br><br>And now i lost respect in the whole internet :Dyeah but this movie would be better fit for a jablonsky score.<br><br><br>he has bigger themes and a richer sound<br>
I will said this, is more enjoyable than Hurricane Heist.<br><br>But the first was more memorableI think have a lot of depth in there, the orchestrations, the tension (reminds a lot of Herrmann) and his main theme.<br><br>And yes, is one of the best of this year, for the moment.Nathan Stornetta. the music in the video sounds really good. im looking forward to this release. is there also a chance to purchase the music from Kynren?It is out. Not bad but it doesn't sound very epic or memorable. Tomb Raider had better moments.<br><br>The orchestration is so empty.<br>I don't think it's one of JNH's bests, but it's really one of the best scores of this year, until now.<br><br>I think it will probably be surpassed by his other scores coming this year, especially Fantastic Beasts 2

Has anyone managed to order this tracks in chronological order? I'm trying to do it myself but there are a lot of track that I can't place, so any help would be great. Thanks

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 :)

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
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
53 Feuerwalzer
54 Magnificent, Isn't It
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

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).

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).
