Maybe this is just the sceptic in me speaking, but the process is a bit different this time around to when he did the original. This time, he has an existing score to pull from. Those themes are set in stone. And this is, from what I understand, essentially a shot-for-shot remake, so all this really will be is an 'adaptation' rather than a completely fresh score. Beyonce is working with Tim Rice and Elton John for the songs as well, so the responsibilities seem to be as split as they were the first time round.<br><br>If nothing, I guess this will all result in an interesting look at how Zimmer would reinterpret an older score of his. Not many composers get that opportunity.Yeah, I think he has to do The Lion King first because they have to incorporate the songs with the score. There was even an article saying that Beyonce was working with Zimmer.DT-2017<br>It depends, because it's a musical, and some tracks have to be prepped prior to filming, so he might do a little bit of each throughout this year I'm guessingDark Phoenix is out later this year, The Lion King won't be out until next year. It's a pretty safe bet he'll score Dark Phoenix first.hank you
Are the war-cry vocals in Red Warrior part of the music or are they added in for the OST?@Hybrid Really? I guess itís not a total surprise considering how much of a mess the film turned out to be. Divergent was a similar situation where the score in-film was butchered...The funny thing with Dark Tower, is that the production was so lost they made him write the score 3 times... Who knows what were the other versions like...Itís interesting with Junkie. As a composer on a purely scene basis, heís not that good (this is coming from someone who loves his music). My primary issue with him is that he tends to score scenes with ambience, or stretched out sound design. That was a huge problem I had with Dark Tower.<br><br>But like I said elsewhere, heís still growing as a composer. Watch something like Black Mass where the music in film complements the scenes amazingly.Hans does not have the credit as a producer on this.<br><br>XL is limited, I agree, but I hope he does something fun (the film is not even taken seriously).
Funnily enough, I'm far more critical of Hans than Junkie, given how much the former relies on ghostwriters, but the fact of the matter is that Hans fundamentally understands how to write a film score, and Junkie, from what I've heard, simply doesn't. Mad Max, although a success, is more a function of the film suiting an extremely rhythmic, percussive sound, rather than Junkie being competent, IMHO. So - somewhat joking here, as I know it won't happen - I'd be down for Hans writing a suite for this and Junkie basically copy/pasting it into the film.Hybrid, do you have credits for this version by any chance?welp, looks like we're back to the whole "tom holkenborg aka junkie XL" thing againPoint Break is fantastic!!!!I like Dark Tower, not a terrific score, but i liked it.<br><br>But Point Break... oh, god
What about the Dark Phoenix score? Did he finish it already or doing it in between the Lion King?Wow, I never realized that the oscorp theme is basically Watergate from Frost/NixonI wish so much more! The movie promises to be as good as the last Jumanji! I'm not a big fan of Point Break or Dark Tower, but I think XL has a lot of stuff to explore this time, like in Mad Max.It does not have to be anything extraordinary, just something that gives life to the film.Yes he has, for a few months now actually...Hybrid, do you know if Hans has started on the new Lion King yet?

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


Andrew772017-02-06 03:53:29

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 .

Ando4 reply Replies: 4 || 2017-02-03 06:03:57
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.

Miguel2017-01-28 13:57:29
More John Barry I think than Powell . Great sounding score so far .

@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


peter2017-01-27 17:23:34
where can I find those samples please?

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? ;)
