interessting... i really think it can be a HZ/ BW / JJ track, it doesn't sound that commercial and basicWhere can I find this version? I have the standard version but not this one.Randy is obviously wrong and an idiot in my point of view.Just watched the movie and it was awesome, well not as great s the first one, but still very entertaining.<br><br>As for the score, by now I have just listened to it in the movie and there worked perfectly, I would say even better than in the first one, with some old themes and some very good new themes, specially I love the Poppy theme.<br><br>Now I will listen to the album to see what tracks are we missing but it looks like a really complete pack.Haven't had a chance to listen to this one. Are you saying the tunes presented on album are not recorded with live musicians? If true then that would come as a surprise as I see some names in the full credits above that are associated with orchestra recordings, including Gavin Greenaway as the conductor.
maybe quality is also not the correct word. its the function of the music. i just think the music of Armageddon is much stronger in its function as a filmscore than Pirates III. i also think the themes are stronger and rabins main theme is used in a wide range. but this also a matter of taste ofc.Yeah, but the quality of the acting beneath the score doesn't affect the quality of the music.I guess that's for the Statesmen. Would have preferred an all-out Western sound for them to contrast with the Bond-type music for the Kingsmen...that would have been fun!Great fun score. It has everything I expected. Although that country vibe in some tracks is nice not really my cup of tea.i love this movie and soundtracks !
I hope LLL didn't microedit this as much as the first one.So, there's music in the Road to 2049 site, and it's pretty cool, but no idea if it's actual score. The lenght seems more like promo track for trailers.<br><br>Would be great to know where it's from, score or otherwise, because it's a great track and hope the score sounds like this!<br><br>Here's the site <br>roadto2049. bladerunnermovie. comI thoroughly enjoyed King Arthur. Good acting, Good Story, Incredible Score, perhaps underrated.iTunes SriLanka is the first itunes store to get the new releases online on friday. But by now you can also go to iTunes New Zeland or something and checkout the album and itís samples.@Armageddon<br><br>1. i love the movie. 2. rockhound is the most annoying character in the whole movie, but at least he has a cool name. ;) 3. bruce willis is smiling in almost all his emotional scenes and not just in this movie. but you know, in germany the movies are dubbed, so his "german" voice and the music helped alot to make these scenes nontheless convincing. to be honest, the goodbye scene was even more sad than the dying scene of leonardo dicaprio in Titanic. so you see, what impact the music had.<br><br>@Edmund<br><br>i didnt say the movie is bad, just bruce willis in a couple of scenes. so....the music had alot more to do than in Pirates III. the impact of the music in Armageddon must be way stronger to make these scenes work than in Pirates III. in Pirates III these scenes would have been also convincing without the music, because the acting was strong enough. but nontheless the music in Pirates III adds alot to the scenes and makes them stronger. just my opinion.
Where did you get this information and samples?Where can I listen to those samples? I would love to hear some bits of the score before watching the movie.The score has 25 tracks and is about 1 hour and 16 minutes long. Samples sound awesome. Great action score with new theme's and variations of the old ones. Looking forward to hearing it in full.Total video game score, circa 98. This is one of those scores -<br> my first - that you just didn't get enough of no matter HOW many cds they released of it. Hell, it wasn't until 2000 when I finally got the complete score on 2 cds. Sadly, by that time I burned out on it...So rockhound...your argument is that the score is better because the movie is worse? That's a new one, gotta admit... :D<br><br>to Armageddon, do it! The complete score, if you can. It's incredible!

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.
