If you ask me, that "personal tragedy" for Snyder, though real, was just an excuse for them to fire him. It was convenient for Warner. They saw his film and they probably got scared it was impossible to sell, too long, too much BvS, too much this, too much that... This irony is now they made a billion with the darkest DC movie ever... Nice call WB... The minute Whedon & Elfman were "in", you understood this film was not Zack Snyder's anymore. This film is so terrible, I rewatched it lately, you can feel pretty much 80% of it is Whedon reshoots (just look for actors that look nothing like themselves when they shot the initial film, "New Haircut" Amy Adams, "Bottox" Batfleck, "Mustache" Cavill... And you can see from miles away how they all act like they don't care, that they hated every minute of reshooting it. I'm really sad Geoff Zanelli had to participate into this travesty, but I hope he got a huge paycheck for the pain ! lol Especially since Geoff was at the very beginning of the DCEU since he started working on ideas with Hans on Man Of Steel, before he left early to handle The Lone Ranger...<br><br>#ReleaseTheSnyderCut<br><br>Oh and btw Brian Tyler was fired from Avengers 2. And not because of the music he was writing. Whedon brought Elfman at the last minute, first he was "additional music", then "co-composer", if he had, say, one more month, he would have replaced the entirety of Tyler's score... He just didn't get enough time to do that...I definitely agree with your last sentence. I really like seeing the RCP composers going back to orchestral splendor and melody. Shame Jablonsky's been MIA because of his family. I would have loved to see him come back with the orchestral, melodic voice that Balfe and Tom have had lately.cool!Whedon has his particular tastes which are guaranteed to be more sensible than 'Anonymous' below. This was a case where Snyder was facing an uphill struggle and a personal tragedy. He left the project. Josh came on board and he does not think highly of the RCP school, as anyone with a sensible ear will do. So he hired Elfman who did Age of Ultron for him after Tyler copy-pasted himself too much. It's ironic that fanboys here lambast Elfman for not being Zimmer enough in scope while Tyler does whatever he does, sounding EXACTLY the same on all projects. <br><br>But it's also heartening to see that all of the good RCP composers like Jackman, Junk, Balfe are now going for scores that sound a lot like 1990s or 2000s - Silvestri (Jumanji), Jones (Alita), or Shore (Dark Materials), respectively.Did Holkenborg finish his score and have time to record it? Is there an actual score? It seems to me he got jettisoned early in the process when Whedon came on board. It would be surprising if he had time to record an actual score with players and an orchestra.
I can't decide whether or not some of the things I want to hear from him should be in his new show or a new World of Hans Zimmer show.@Ds Omar is saying that this was the direction Tom went with / what the score sounded like not that he was fired because he didnít deliver the sound heís known for :) <br>Of course he was replaced after Snyder left the project. <br><br>And yeah citation is needed.Desperately hoping we'll hear something from Dune. He's said himself how excited he is to finally work on music for a Dune movie and turned down Nolan for it, and it will be out a few months before these shows begin.The FYC came out for this. Unfortunately, it's missing two entire tracks from the film. An extended "Busy, Busy Berk", and the film version of "Furies Captured" (which at least had a YouTube upload of the alternate version). <br><br>Guess we'll have to hope for a complete/recording sessions leak for everything else.Will he come to Sthlm / Gothenburg sweden???
https://www.  axs.com/why-we-need-a-chicago-med-soundtrack-album-in-our-li ves-112620<br><br>Why they never release this?!....Omar: Well tried, but Junkie XL was replaced after Snyder was fired and Whedon came in.<br>And just in case Snyder actually wanted another sound, he would just have told Junkie at the beginning instead of firing him after he departed himself :-pCitation neededZimmer and Djawadi are nominated for Grammys this year along with Hildur,Alan Silvestri,Marc ShiecmanTom's score for Justice League was basically a mix of Mad Max and Deadpool. Zack wanted to go with a different approach for the score and make it more "fun" than serious. He didn't want a Zimmer sound for the movie.
I noticed that the other day as well on IMDB. I know thatís not always reliable, but that would be awesome if he was involved. Iíve missed the ďfunĒ side of Zimmer for awhile. The next couple of years hopefully produce a number of Zimmer classics.Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah.  Whoah. Space Jam2?! You arenít serious.I hope this one will leak very soon! A lot of great music that isnt releasedHybrid, is Zimmer really attached to Space Jam 2?<br><br>Will Hans Zimmer be coming to London in 2021 pls? Thanks Monica

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.
