Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip
...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scores
This score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me
@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04.

Really loving this score and the film ROCKED. Does anyone know about Genius ? Lorne has posted photos today or recording sessions


Michael2017-03-05 15:47:46
Genius is the Rob Howard TV show based on The life of Einstein .

I believe Hans is writing the main theme with Lorne and Lorne is the Doug the score to all of the episodes . The super bowl spot looks amazing . Frost Nixon was a unique score from them both .

Lego Batman just got released in Australia so it was great to hear how the score worked to the film. Amazing work . The Robin song I Found You is excellent and Lorne should be writing more songs . Interested to see Ghost in the shell now

There seems some negative comments about this score but I think it is great because it is fun but also with great serious overtones. For a change , the music was as important as ththe storyline for a change . I was actually shocked to see Lorne's name at the end because I had never heard his music this good. seems like he was allowed to go wild and enjoy writing . Enjoyed this soundtrack more than anything in a long time so well done


John2017-02-20 09:25:34
Onlyon this forum ! I think it's amazing and the music makes the film . I have always been a fan of Hans music but now lorn music is beating everyone's music for animation . Really great and best batman score since batman begins


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-20 12:05:11
"now lorn music is beating everyone's music for animation."

Sorry. As good as this score is, Lorne still has a long long way to go before he reaches John Powell's level.


John2017-02-20 12:34:49
Sorry but !!! Edmund you seem to be in the minority ! Social media is constantly
Mentioning the score in reviews . I realize I'm new to the new site but I follow Ihim on twitter and Facebook and everyone seems to be congratulating on the soundtrack . Apart from you ! Anyway - it's fun and I close my eyes and sit back and listen to it and enjoy A what else can I ask for .


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-20 14:41:18
Good for him! It's great that this score is getting such acclaim. It's a very fun and enjoyable one. But go out and ask those same people if they like this more or How to Train Your Dragon and then come back and tell me what they say.


David2017-02-20 19:56:09
Not just Powell but Zimmer too! The Prince of Egypt, Kung Fu Panda and The Lion King! Another great Powell animated score is Shrek, which he shares with Gregson-Williams :D

@theeaglesfan005
The Arrival of Robin

Part 2: 0:51 - 1:37
Part 3: 1:37 - End


Medigo2017-02-17 08:53:07
also 1:29-2:50 from 'Black' was for some reason replaced in the movie with new music
no other track has edits like that I think tho


Rocko 2017-02-18 09:07:15
Where does the song I Found You feature in the film? It's a beautiful and it's the Robin theme but want to know where it goes .

Don't know why everyone is actually raving about this score ? Have listened to it once and I haven't felt the urge to listen to it again. It's a fun score for sure. But saying it's the best score for an animated movie since a long time is a bit too much credit for me... But hey everyone can like whatever they want. Love the first minute of The Arrival of Robin though.


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-14 12:34:09
I kind of agree with you. It's a fun score but the level of accolades it's getting would have you think it's the second coming of Jesus Christ.


isildur2017-02-14 14:08:40
It's not just fun score, it's fun "Batman" score. Sure many of us loved Hans' Dark Knight scores but this kind of addresses more aspects of Batman's & Joker's characters not just their broody nature and completely insane unpredictability that was there in Nolan's movies. Also the contrasting comic nature of the film helps the score to be enjoyed on a different level.

Of course it's not the greatest animation score. But when combined with the kind of popularity Batman & Lego movies have, it's just that more people are talking about it. And I, for one, am glad Lorne is getting some much deserved attention.


Mike2017-02-14 19:33:21
Obviously you haven't been reading the reviews then !!!! I think it's a great score
and the film is a massive success . The music is is big part of the film and works brilliantly


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-14 22:24:21
So if "the reviews" say something, it must be true and the rest of us have to fall in line? LOL

This is the soundtrack album that Zimmer and Balfe's Megamind should've gotten! That release was pathetic; it failed to satisfy those who wanted the songs (only had 4) and those who wanted the score (13 cues).
