Tina had a lot of work to do here!Each time I listen to "The Oil," I'm convinced it can't get any louder and larger, but it does. If you don't look at the track time, you're just constantly thinking it's about to end, and yet it somehow continues to up the ante until you almost can't handle anymore!I was on three concerts so far and just at the one at Frankfurt some band members came down from the stage after the concert. I didn'f got a autograph but I did photos with nile marr and nick glennie smith. But if you would ask some of the band members I am sure they will say "ok perhaps I can arrange it" would try it this way :)I really like it. It's a clever score that sounds like it had an awful lot of thought put into it.A fanmade.<br><br>Hybrid probably took the track from here because the guy behind the channel was stating that it was original without being. Leaving the link here would only give him more audience.
So I'm curious about something...that fake End Titles track that was posted here twice and removed...if it wasn't Dunkirk, what WAS it? It was actually a decent piece and sounded like Hans.I agree.  This to me was Nolan's Revenant. Good looking cinematography, but almost no story and zero emotional connection to anything happening.  I disagree with Adam.  It doesn't drudge up negative feelings either because, unless you have an explicit connection to the Battle of Dunkirk, it doesn't try to give anything meaning.  The film was everything I feared when I saw the trailer, boring and limited in depth.  As I was leaving I heard someone describe as a documentary, but I wouldn't even call it that.  It is like an art film, definitely not for everyone.  I'd probably call it a historical recreation on film.<br><br>As for the "music".  It definitely fit the "movie" in that it hardly was the fundamental thing it is described as.  Mostly droning noise, air, or ticking.  Not for everyone and not really listenable either.<br><br>Overall this felt like a pop-avant garde project.  Maybe Dunkirk is something extremely culturally relevant in England? Like still present in the vernacular? I don't know but this movie fails to take add anything to the human experience. It does not transcend its basic scenario and title. Dunkirk. That is it.Nope, it has the inicial feeling of 528491 of Inception.Shivering Soldier is DEFINITELY similar to Bruce's theme in BVSThe Tracklist Of This movie has Been Released At film Music reporter And Film Music Site.

Has anyone had any luck getting an autograph after one of his concerts? Going to one soon.*four. Yes, I can do math. :PI like that Lorne is directly credited on Regimental Brothers and End Titles. Ditto Wallfisch with Home, Variation 15, and End Titles. That's three credits from the start!I agree, but this one is much better.It probably felt less emotionally engaging because we've been fed with emotions like friendships, love, joy or sorrow in most of the films. Dunkirk was emotionally engaging with emotions like fear of death, longing to go home. Hope this gives you another perspective
Divisive opinion:<br>I honestly wasn't crazy about the film. It wasn't bad, and the score was very appropriate, but I felt they could have done something different to not just be visually engaging, but emotionally engaging. Maybe I'm crazy, I'm seeing it again today, but that's my initial reaction.@Hari "I am afraid?"<br><br>There is no need to fear. Lol.<br>They have been doing this since ... always<br>Filmtracks since 2003.<br>The problem is that HZ has no formal musical training and this will always put him on a step down when compared to those who have or who in one way or another try to follow in a more orchestral way."At least for people who claim to be more cultured"<br><br>--------------------------------------------------<br><br>@Hari No! He never assumed that. The other day, I think in BvS or Boss Baby review, he commented that people accuse him of always bashing HZ works in exchange for views. But he denies, saying he does this to make it clear that not all people are satisfied with the current situation of the scores produced these days. And that HZ has yes, his share of guilt about it.<br><br>--------------------------------------------------<br><br>I do not like hatred in what he writes. First because it influences other reviewers to do the same and second because it is not 100% fair.<br><br>For PoTC 5, for example, he gave 3 stars. While the other scores of the franchise were always migrating between 1 and 2 stars.<br>If everyone had 3 stars, with the exception of the 4 effort, I'd be okay with that.And his justification for this is that Geoff is ridding the music of the damage franchise brought by Hans. WTF?<br><br>But at the end of the day I'm okay with that too.<br>----------------------------------------------<br>I make it clear that I do not have so much trouble with the way he review the scores. No problem. The problem is the use of hate words whenever it comes with a score review by Hans.<br><br>He called Captain Philips of a piece of shit. Even if I agree with him that it is bad, is sad that you read this. But okay.<br>Wonder Woman wasn't too bad :Dits just Tick Took effect, Great for the Movie but so Disappointed As an Album.<br>You misunderstood me, everything I've heard about the score excited me and I still am very excited to see the movie and to hear the score. I was one of the people who defended Hans' approach early on when "Supermarine" was released. I like what i've heard from the score and I don't want a melody or a main theme. (even though it seems like Supermarine can count as a main theme from what I've heard about the score)<br><br>My issue is with the 11 track 59 minute album. Let's take "The Mole" for example, I've been told that at the 2:00 mark there was a section that's in the movie but was cut out of the track so "The Mole" would've been much longer than 5 minutes. That section is one of my favorite things about the score (it was featured in the prologue). The first clip with Mark Rylance featured music that is similar to the end of "The Mole" but it's not the same cue and it doesn't appear elsewhere on the album. <br>I'm a big, big fan of Hans and Nolan but the fact that they keep screwing up their soundtrack official releases is bothersome to me.

I received today the CD edition, ordered via WaterTower Music shop, and very surprised that it's not a CD-R ! It's a real pressed disc.

...and I just realized I used the word "impressed" or some variation thereupon four times in that post. *facepalm*

And this was supposed to be a reply to the other thread!

...I think I need to go to bed. :p

:-/ Hmmmmm.... This is really an underwhelming score. It's not bad by any means, but most of the action/suspense music is incredibly generic. And the horn of doom... really?!?

I will say, I do like the use of electric guitars in the first half ("The Island" is pretty badass) and there is some decent orchestral writing in the second. There just seems to be something missing that would make this feel more inspired.


MrZimmerFan2017-03-03 18:56:17
I'm not the biggest fan of Jackman, but I think is a enyoable score (honestly, I prefer Uncharted or Pixels, but I have fun with this). I like the guitars with orchestra (The Battle of Skull Island have this epic/heroic theme for Kong or the textures for Monsters Exists)

Not the worst.


mpolonest123 2017-03-03 20:58:59
Like I said, it's not a bad score at all. I won't even compare it to JNH because the film is obviously a different beast entirely. The problem is the lack of a distinct voice mixed with some bland, modern action material that borrows heavily from Silvestri and Brian Tyler.

Jackman has always had trouble finding his sound. His scores are always enjoyable but they seem to have trouble being distinct enough. That's one reason I love TWS. The electronic style mixed with the traditional action scoring allow it to be fresh and original, no matter how harsh it gets. If you didn't tell me Jackman scored Skull Island I honestly wouldn't be able to tell you who did.


Macejko2017-03-03 22:39:14
Yes, Jackman underdelivers yet again. I swear, the best thing that came out of his career was Matt Margeson.


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-04 01:04:18
Heh. That's harsh, but I have to admit that Margeson's recent work has impressed me more than Jackman's. The latter had some excellent scores early in his career, but since Wreck-it Ralph he hasn't really impressed me...was not at all impressed with his Captain America scores and even his latest animated/comedy scores like Big Hero 6 and Pixels were missing something. Although I did think Birth of a Nation last year was an impressive new direction for him.

In the official youtube chanel of WaterTower Music you can listen to the track "The Island" and it sounds amazing. I hope the score will be a s epic as this track!

It will be a great epic score, Jackman is great, but shame that it doesn't get a cd release.

CD available on the WaterTower website. I ordered one.
