Why never ? <br>He dislikes the saga or not interested ? I'm curious.Does anyone know why "Knight's March" is not in the original album and if there is a extended edition that has this cue?<br><br>Rogue One was last minute change on Giacchino. I would like to hear Alexandre Desplat score to make a correct analysis from both scores. Besides that and with the little time, Giacchino's score is good, in the same style from maestro Williams. <br>Solo score is more different. Maestro Williams wrote the main theme and more cues, but what make the score different is Powell. He adapts Solo theme, and some of themes the original trilogy, but he puts him own stamp. Definitely is a Star Wars Score but with Powell stamp. Something Giacchino, maybe for the time, did not develop.<br>The film, well, i will watch on DVD.graciasWhile I always liked this score, it wasn’t until recently (when I revisited the film and album) that I realized how amazing it really is. There is still nothing that tops “Evacuating London” or the “Aslan” theme in terms of modern fantasy material. Each of the themes are brilliantly interconnected with each other, but stand on their own as well. I do wish there something a bit more distinctive for the White Witch, but that’s a small complaint.<br><br>The only other score that really reminds me of this (in terms of the string writing and piano material) is “Winters Tale” by Rupert. Also a pretty solid fantasy score.
I LOVE IT!!They kept the volume of the music so low in the movie, while rouge ones was jacked up and used as a center piece rather than side music like they did for John. Johnson piece is far better,  it they gave it a back seat <br>But Rogue One or Solo?<br><br>Because i remember more the music in RO after watching the movie than in Solo (well, maybe is because that theme for the character is so unispired and only i remember certain moments of the music)We are just gonna have to agree to disagree. ;-)I just said I haven't watched the movie or listened to the full score yet.
Still have to disagree, I love the new “Park Theme” and the way it sort of takes over from the classic theme. Then you have the Indominus theme, Owen’s theme, the villain theme, the family theme, the source music, etc.<br>I’ll take that any day over Lost World and JP3. Is it as good as the original score? Hell no, but not many scores are.'<br><br>The Lost World was a coherent evolution in the franchise, Williams maintains the original theme, but creates a darker and more percussive score (listen the expanded version by La La Land), because the movie isn't like Jurassic Park. And i getting appreciate more the Don Davis score for JPIII, better orchestrated than Jurassic World, both scores are FAR better than Jurassic World (one for a coherent and agressive tone and more memorable, and the other because is better orchestrated)<br><br>'And I do see the similarities between the vulture theme and those other ones listed. It’s definitely not original, but it is effective.'<br><br>I don't see any similaraties with the Avengers theme, effective?, yeah, but not memorable and i'll pick up any day than any theme in Jurassic WorldDo you remember any music outside the space chase?<br><br>Because i don't.I only watched the movie once, but the fact that I didn't take away any memorable music from Rogue One is a huge problem for a Star Wars film. I haven't listened to this score yet, but I have more hopes for this than Rogue One.Between this one and Rogue One, I'll take the last one.<br><br>Unfortunately the two scores run away from the typical sound of the franchise and at various times seem just a pastiche copy.<br><br>It's a good score, but it does not feel so natural. Even Han's theme is almost unrecognizable, forgettable and incoherent with the character. It does not have the same identity as the themes of Luke, Leia, Rey, Anakin, Jyn, Yoda or Dameron.woow! love it
It's funny that when they announced that the star wars story films would be scored by different conposers, I was like... COME ONE JOHNY GET ON IT and sure enough a year later... Same with Pan (one of his best scores in my opinion).Well, for starters, the HAN SOLO theme Williams wrote is kind of...well...meh....<br><br>And I can see where Powell had to incorporate the original Star Wars and some Empire themes....Asteroid Field being one of them.<br><br>I just kinda hoped Powell would adapt Asteroid Field into something more than whatever the hell butchery happened here....Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! When was there a flute in this score?? I just noticed there's a credit for a flute soloist, and I've listened to this score several times and never noticed a flute? Does anyone have any idea which track it might be?It's really sad how more than half of this score is just very messy bombastic sound rather than a more structured melodic/thematic approach, this coming from a hardcore Powell fan. The saddest thing is that this was THE film for him to score, full of action and chase sequences, which John has always excelled at. Here however, rather than his usual voice, it sounds as if he shies away from it and goes back to anything established by Williams every 30 seconds or so. Whenever it sounds like a cue is leading up to something interesting and exploring a new idea, it just shies away from it. This might have been on the directors/producer's side of things... or that's what I'm choosing to believe, at least. Don't get me wrong, every so often there are some sections that really do shine, this often being when Powell isn't just trying to sound Williamsy and/or referencing old SW material. Maybe I just need to give the album a few more listens. Usually happens whenever a new Powell soundtrack album is released. Not sure, though. Just by listening to Ferdinand a few times, for example, you could really feel and understand the story, its characters and their development, as their themes developed as well. This one is just a mess and feels... off.Such an inspiring track. Loved it when it was released and still love it.

"Joker Crashes the Party" - Wasn't that the name of a cue from TDK? Was this an inside joke?

Which Balfe scores, in your opinion, are his best? I’ve just gotten into his stuff recently with Lego Batman and would like a good starting point with him, thanks!


Max Potcats2018-01-04 13:05:06
I really liked Son Of God (Faith is amazing), Terminator Genisys is nice too.


Macejko2018-01-04 13:25:10
Beyond: Two Souls all the way.


mpolonest123 2018-01-04 14:22:38
Beyond: Two Souls and Blackwood are probably my top two from him.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-04 15:09:34
From what I've heard, I'd say my top picks from Balfe would be Lego Batman, Home and Beyond: Two Souls. But like Zanelli, I feel Balfe is a composer who does some of his best work in additional music moreso than his solo scores, so if I was making a Balfe playlist I'd definitely also add some of his contributions to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Kung Fu Pandas 2 and 3, Megamind and Inception.


Olive2018-01-04 16:02:04
Nothing...
Just kidding!
Animation movies (Lego, Home, Kung Fu Panda, Penguins and Megamind) and video games scores (Beyond, Assassins Creed, Modern Warfare). Yeah, I like also some other things, but nothing too remarkable like those above.


Hybrid Soldier2018-01-04 16:47:12
Ironclad, Harry's Arctic Heroes, Skylanders - Giants...


Richard2018-01-04 17:29:14
AC3 ,Terminator Genius and Ghost In The Shell are mine.


Miguel2018-01-04 17:32:06
Genius for me is my favorite.then Beyond Two Souls, Home and Legobatman

DaveFilm2018-01-05 03:49:18
The Crown and Genius are my favourite


Michael882018-01-05 05:06:50
Call of Duty is Balfe’s best along side Beyond Two Souls


Andmusid2018-01-05 07:18:31
Home and Legobatman

Ghost in The Shell,The Bible and Take Off from Geostorm.

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 .

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

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

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
