please god (HZ, of course) stop teasing us x'D, the longest 22 days left of my live :)Why can't I buy this anywhere?<br>Want to download it to ITunes so I can play it without the need to connect to the internet but can't.  Please put back on ITunes or have a "Buy song" and Download option on your website.  <br><br>Have tried everywhere for months now.I searched on the internet! The CD was released as a limited edition. Both. There was already a reply regarding this matter.<br><br>What I didn't knew: TF4 "Age of extinction" was limited to 3,000(!) pieces! Produced by Lalaland Records. They also release the TF5 score.Because i saw IMAX prologue, if this track opening, track. It's probably be. Opening scene starting clock-ticking.Probably cycles through them all. Rotation. Or he just chooses who he wants. He's the boss.
How does Hans Zimmer choose who is going to help him on his scores?How do you know? Have you heard it yet?Short bits from the zurich concert:<br><br>--> the e-guitar mixed with percussion is too loud. During the Dark Knight and Crimson Tide you could barely hear the melody lines played by the strings which is my biggest complain (the only one actually)<br>--> choir is amazing and can luckily beat the loud drums.<br>--> music selection is good and most of the time nice medleys<br>--> live singer are a lot better (on the stage !) than i expected. Especially the lion king and gladiator pieces are well done with the voices.<br>--> surprisingly long concert with over 3 hours (including 20 minutes break)<br>--> First half of the concert is perfect ! Good mix of classic and modern pieces/styles. Second half is a bit too much with spiderman, inception, interstellar, man of steel as they are all very percussion heavy. At that point you may get tired of it. Still i was impressed until the last minute and most people in the crowd too i guess.<br>--> hans said zurich is his 38th show on the tour and he showed no lack of energy. He was quite entertaining during his talk bits.<br><br>I hope in some years he will do another tour with some new pieces :)The Mole - Full clock-ticking and rythm<br>@MrZimmerFan Oh I love Inception too, it's a great score. But that album situation though.,.. missing some major cues. At least Interstellar was a solid release, only missing one major track.
Doesn't anyone know which track is the piece used for the end of the series ? Is it on the EP?The movie is 1H47Mins long with credits. If credits are 7 minutes long, we're left with a 100 minute movie (who knows how much music was written/used). Not to mention the relentless pace. I want to believe that we might get everything we want/need out of this release but I'm really not sure.I love Inception<br><br>;PWhile it would be unusual for a Zimmer/Nolan collab to not have any suites, we still don't know how much music is in the film itself. Take 12YAS for example; a 2 hour movie with only 40 minutes of score. For all we know, this release might be 80% of the music written.... or more.<br><br>Now if it's anything like Inception (which is such a disappointing album) then this will be a letdown.Definitely not two hours though since CDs are limited to 74-80mins of audio. I was hoping for an extended digital deluxe edition. <br>
It's a bootleg so no release on CD but it's available in some others places...Dear Hans,<br><br>I'm french and drove 400 km to be in Nīmes on june the 24th and I've never felt so lucky than this day. <br>To see and to hear your musicians and you playing was a dream. I fell in love with your music when I was about 15 and had tears in my eyes when hearing the Rain Man theme. <br>You're a great composer M. Zimmer and a great man. Respectful to your musicians and audience. <br><br>I hope you'll be back in France soon, not just for me but for all those who couldn't see you until then and, even if I have more kilometers to drive, I'll do them easily to have the chance to see you again on stage.<br><br>Affectionately.<br><br>GaėlleThis album will probably around 1 hour... Inception had 12 tracks and was 49 minutes without the two bonus tracks.Those 11 tracks could be each over ten minutes long and the album be pushing two hours for all you know.Aside from the suites it appears to be!!

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.

Amazing soundtrack, amazing movie

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


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-04 01:05:32
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.


Jordan2017-02-27 09:33:05
CD available on the WaterTower website. I ordered one.
