Just listened to the whole thing. Unfortunately, like four, this seems to be lacking a really strong theme like the first three soundtracks.Someone probably knows better, but I'm almost certain that "Your Voice", "Did You Forget Who I Am" and "Calling All Autobots" feature theme reprises. Haven't heard the score yet but this is just judging by the movie.It's quite Long ! :) he started at 20:15/08:15pm and they finished Inception at 23:30/11:30pm so You get a 3 Hours Event but I have to say that there is a 20mimutes Long Break but it's still a very Great Time compared to other concerts and it feels very Short !I think we All Love Hans but somehow it would feel Strange to See his Name in the legendary Blue letters. I think balfe would be ok but I have to say that Alexandre desplat would be perfekt when it comes to "writing something Star Wars/John Williams like". He would have been Perfect for rogue one because there he could have used the old themes much more than You could in a han solo Movie. Cause man did giacchino screwed up in rogue one the only good Part is the Star destroyer Crash and the rest is garbage.Can anyone here create a List which titles are actually old themes like "autobots" or "arrival to Earth" ? :)
Totally agree . Balfe or Giacchino.My guess is either Balfe or Giacchino. Giacchino has that Star Wars/John Willams-esque sound and he did an amazing job in Rogue One. <br><br>I don't see Hans doing this type of a movie. From what I understand he wants to stay away from franchises with extremely passionate fandoms lol. He seems to want to focus on smaller/more original projects. That what he said.Balfe isn't a big enough name yet ???!!! He had one of the biggest films of the year !!! Also just worked with Howard . Go Balfe !!!Hans is not a good match for the Star Wars musical universe. Out of all the RCP guys current and former, John Powell would be the natural best choice, but given his level of activity right now the chances of that happening are basically zero. Balfe is talented but he hasn't shown that he's worthy of Star Wars if you ask me.<br><br>My guess is it will go to what Disney considers the safest pair of hands, i.e. Michael Giacchino again. Which would be...OK...but somehow not that inspiring.<br><br>And for all my misgivings, if it does end up being Hans himself, I'd be incredibly curious to see what he does.Tracks 1,3,7,15,16,and 34 are probably suites. Sounds good to me!
Seglass Ni Tonday is a standout track. one of jablonskys best i've heard from him.I'd love to see Hans push himself to write something in that kind of style. It'd be an interesting challenge. <br><br>It won't be Balfe. Not big name enough (yet).No need. Found it...C'mon Everan....It did, but not telling where. Still downloading my itunes version tomorrow though, original always wins.
It could leak out already, come on! I don't want to wait anymore!!1. Sacrifice (6:46)<br>2. The Coming of Cybertron (4:58)<br>3. Merlin’s Staff (5:49)<br>4. No-Go Zone (3:28)<br>5.

Did You Forget Who I Am (1:56)<br>32. We Have to Go (5:48)<br>33. Calling All Autobots (2:55)<br>34. Sir Edmund Burton (4:10)I have to agree. As great as Zimmer and team is/are, The star Wars id is without doubt romantic symphonic. Giacchino it should be.<br><br>Now that Ron Howard is involved, I really miss James Horner right now. Can you imagine his interpretation of the Star Wars Universe if he got the opportunity?Balfe would be my choice also . Genius was a cool scoreGiacchino would be the best choice. Hans shouldn't do a Star Wars movie because Star Wars needs a specific kind of music and that's not hans' type of music. I think giacchino has done an amazing job on Rogue One and I think he will do a great job on Han Solo

Yo Hybrid, credits for this? Mostly Steve? Mostly Hans? Hans suites and Steve everything else? What about Conrad Pope?


Edmund Meinerts2017-04-07 20:41:18
I'd bet my left nut that "Love" is Pope.


Hybrid Soldier2017-04-08 04:05:52
Pope did Love indeed.


Mike782017-04-08 11:03:17
Love is amazing . He rest is not as good as megamind . Don't think zimmer gave 100% to this


c2017-04-08 13:57:25
Conrad Pope explains the cue on his facebook. They needed something more dynamic and classical-sounding.

The editor James Ryan also commented:

"Every screening for well over 2 years the last thing we would do was work on that scene and struggle to re-edit the temp. I've never worked on a scene in any movie that had so much riding on the music. The sigh of relief and joy when you delivered your masterpiece was something I will never forget. And watching you conduct it gave me the chills (and a few tears). Bravo!"

By far the strongest piece on the album. The rest is pretty forgettable.


Andrew272017-04-08 14:43:35
That's amazing to hear from the editor . Wish the rest of the score was as good as Popes piece.

Think Lego Batman is still best animation score this year . Was really looking forward to Boss Baby but seems generic .


Ds2017-04-08 15:08:27
You guys are right that "Love" is a great cue. But the rest of the score is just as good, with plenty of ideas and a very cool and memorable theme.

The issue is that this kind of scores requires some patience from the listeners, because it's too crazy, too packed, with so many twists and style variations it's difficult to fully grasp the whole thing after just a few listens.

It's just like any John Powell score for animation: absolutely great music that takes some time to fully digest. So please, give it a few more spins and some time to grow on you before you judge it!


Mike (OTM)2017-04-08 20:00:25
"Love" is an awesome cue and all. I really love it. But I don't understand: could no one at RCP have delivered something like this? Pope was obviously a good pick, but are Zimmer and co. truly incapable of arranging this type of thing?


mpolonest1232017-04-08 20:21:06
@Mike(OTM) Not necessarily, I feel like Richard Harvey could easily have delivered something in this vein. That being said, I'm sure the production team probably had their heart set on whatever temps they used for that scene (more likely than not something that Pope either composed or orchestrated) and decided to go directly to the man himself.

It is a bit strange that they would only bring him in to do one scene, as opposed to working alongside Hans and Steve throughout. But it's not unheard of, I guess.


Miguel2017-04-08 22:44:06
The only person at RCP that could do what Pope did was , is Balfe . Why didn't he get involved especially after the Megamind connection???

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 0 || 2017-04-02 00:40:11
Hybrid, since you generally have an idea about this stuff, do you have a rough estimate of how composing duties/credits were divided here? Co-score all throughout? Mostly Steve? Mostly Hans? ;)

Jack Afrogarrix 2017 reply Replies: 0 || 2017-04-01 17:53:54
This Score Is Awsome, Hans Zimmer & Steve Mazzaro Work For The First Time And Additional Music By Cornad Pope. Is The Same Style Animated Movie Score Like Megamind With Lorne Balfe.

Also add Balfe to that line up and that would be amazing

Not bad! The "Love" cue has great orchestral moments. At least *** score after the first listen.


credit2017-03-26 10:46:03
So "Love" was obviously done by Conrad Pope. Never heard anyone from RCP write anything remotely close to that style.

But what about the rest of the score? I can hear a lot of Hans in the theme and the action material (a lot of his action riffs and stylings from megamind) but not sure which bits Mazzaro did.


iMe2017-03-26 14:15:20
@credit

Agreed with your comment on Conrad Pope's involvement.

Goes to show what Hans Zimmer's tunes can become if orchestrated and arranged by someone of Pope's caliber. I hope to see the duo collaborate more often.


Miguel2017-03-27 05:16:04
Conrad should have been the co composer with Hans I think !. I bet he contributed more than just that amazing cue .


Mike (OTM)2017-03-27 15:52:51
So I agree it's likely that Conrad Pope was involved with the "Love" cue, but watch what's gonna happen...

We're gonna find out that cue is 100% Zimmer, and we're all gonna have our minds blown. Cause honestly, that type of thing happens a lot. :P


Jonathan Rochat2017-03-27 16:24:51
Yes ok I then had a look at Conrad Pope. That guys has orchestrated "Jurassic Park" (and many many others) so yes it seems that the "love" cue could have been completely in his hand. And note this is the first Time Conrad Pope is credited as Additional composer here, maybe this is just because of that cue... Now we need to wait for Hybrid , maybe one day we will know the answer.

Who is Conrad Pope ? Is he RCP ?


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-27 09:51:25
He's done a few scores (Pavilion of Women is outstanding), but he's better known as a veteran orchestrator for many years for composers like John Williams, Alan Silvestri and Alexandre Desplat. In other words, he knows what he's doing. Quite unexpected for him to show up on an RCP score!

I don't think lego Batman soundtrack is overrated at all . Great emotion and themes . I found you is a great robin theme also .

Anto reply Replies: 1 || 2017-03-27 05:24:39
No the best sad to say. Sounds like Hans didn't do much in it. Lego Batman is still winning for me this year for best score so far for sure


Dragonseeker2017-03-27 07:19:01
Lego Batman is the most overrated score this year to me. The Boss Baby is not amazing either imo, but it has a very clear thematic structure.

Not great . This is not Hans music unfortunately

Waymann reply Replies: 2 || 2017-03-24 10:01:07
Great score, love the action cues and the constant use of main theme in different variations throughout the whole score. Honestly I prefer this one over the Lego Batman soundtrack...


Dudu2017-03-24 16:53:10
Same here!!
Loved that score and prefer it to lego batman. The main theme is cool, and there's an "out-of-nowhere" throwback to the 90s in the cue "barfmitzvah", what can I ask more??


FilmMuso2017-03-27 05:21:10
No way is it better than Lego Batman . This is Megamind basically . Lego Batman has interesting colors and has soul. Wouldn't mind more Conrad Pope collaborations though !

Never has there been so little interest in a Zimmer release. What'd you guys think?

I personally found it fun, but a tad loud :)


Mephariel2017-03-25 23:45:48
Fun score. But anything with Steve Mazzaro tends to be electronically overhanded and loud. Nice theme and nice soundscape building though.

Lame - why didn't Hans and Lorne work on this


mpolonest123 2017-03-18 03:09:25
Why is it lame? Have you heard it yet?

Give it a chance, Steve Mazzaro has shown some promise in the past and has never really had a chance to show his talents in a more solo effort. Between this and Pirates, it'll be cool to hear his more orchestral side.

Hell, I still remember when Lorne Balfe was first breaking away from his co-composer status and people were hating on him...


Hybrid Soldier2017-03-18 10:39:50
Hey Lorne is not a puppy waiting lol... He has a career, he is not spinning around what Hans does anymore !

52 minutes of score? My, Hans' releases have improved since the days of Madagascar! And Mazzaro is a co-composer? This will be interesting!
