It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.
Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !

Does anyone know what tracks Chas Smith played on?

The style of instrumentation and orchestration reminds me a bit of Thomas Bergersen from Two Steps From Hell.

I think it has been since Pirates Worlds End that there was a RCP score with such excessive instrumentation. I love it. I think Lorne can handle a Pirates score on his own he wants.


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-07 22:27:07
Bergersen, really? I've listened to pretty much every piece of music he has ever composed and I can't say I particularly hear a connection. This score sounds like Balfe's usual animation techniques crossed with an over-the-top version of the Zimmer/Nolan Batman scores. It's certainly a lot of fun, whatever it sounds like!


AdaMus2017-02-08 00:17:05
Really ? I dont quite see it . Anyway it's a great album . Defiantly best soundtrack this year so far . I love I Found you

Usually I am not into animation movie music because they are way too cheerful happy adventure style. But this one is amaaaaaaazing. I can hear a lot of stuff from other RCP scores but I don't mind.

This is really well orchestrated and badass. Lorne his best score.

I can only hope they will do a "superman lego movie" and he can do the score too


MusicWi2017-02-05 19:02:14
Totally agree . It great to get themes back again with super heroes !
10/10

Order of amazing tracks :

1) Battle Royals - amazing theme and orchestration
2) The Babs Signal - great theme . Exactly how superhero movies should have a theme .
3) Chaoes in Gotham - totally crazy !
4) A Long Farewell

The rest : just as good but theses are amazing .

Just downloaded the album . Already listened to it three times .
It's excellent . Lorns best score yet . Fun and series .


Brent2017-02-03 07:06:47
I absolutely love this score! Perhaps Lorne's best. Though, at the same time, I'm a little annoyed that Junkie's Mad Max descending action pattern keeps showing up at every possible moment.


Ando42017-02-03 18:11:21
I thought that to but then that line is also in Megamind ! So not really junkies!


Hybrid Soldier2017-02-03 19:48:42
Yeah that's funny I asked if there was Mad Max temp but it was rather Megamind ! ;)


The Pale King2017-02-03 20:56:56
That descending action theme is a bit annoying, but I'll forgive it for just how much fun this score is; a real treat.

Basically sounds like putting the score(s) for the Lego Movie, Batman '66, and Batman '89 / TAS in a blender, with a lot of fun, unexpcted surprises along the way.

Not to be that guy, but after the muddled disappointing Batman stuff in BvS, hats off to Lorne for creating something that sounds so quintessentially Batman.

Oh, and the Robin cue / theme might be one of my favorites in a long time :)

Just saw a screening of the film . Defiantly Lorne's best score yet .its nothing like I've heard in an animation . Can't wait for the album now and great songs

You've gotta be kidding me! The "deshi deshi basara" percussion again? :P Lorne already used it in 13 Hours.

@jrej3555,

I sampled it last night. It's not what you think it is. It's it's own song. And it sucks.

The samples for this sound really cool, and it's great seeing Lorne Balfe tackle it given his history with Batman.


Tomas362017-01-27 03:38:31
This is Balfes best score yet ! So many colors . Bravo

Seeing as Lorne worked on all three movies of the TDK trilogy with Zimmer, Howard, et al... Anyone think we'll find any easter eggs here? ;)
