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.

Kevin Kiner posted two cues from the Mansell sessions:
kevinkiner.com/music


antovolk2017-06-04 14:44:04
The Leap and Don't Send a Rabbit to Kill a Fox. The Leap is specifically interesting to compare with the film version.


Michael Poleschuck2017-06-04 15:25:40
But that means that Kiner also write additional music for this, or not? Interesting and strange story with this soundtrack.


JBSO992017-06-04 16:28:55
So The Leap is not the film version? That's one of the cues Lorne rewrote I suppose. They're very good. I hope the story around this score slowly gets clearly explained


Simon2017-06-04 16:50:50
I asked Balfe about cues from Kiner and they were never used in the film. Hope there is an actual album


Edmund Meinerts2017-06-04 22:09:00
So now Kiner was involved with this score as well? The plot thickens...


antovolk2017-06-06 16:54:29
@Michael Poleschuck @Edmund Meinerts
Per the film's end credits, Kiner wrote additional music for the Mansell sessions.

@JBSO99
Correct. The film version of The Leap can be heard in the clips released online

JBSO992017-04-28 15:30:54
I hope so, but why Clint Mansell is not in here? And now Lorne appears as composer and not co-composer. Does that means that they will release only the Lorne score parts or something like that?


...2017-04-28 15:56:45
Clint is not part of Remote Control Productions, so that´s why he in not listed here


JBSO992017-04-30 09:34:29
I know that he is not part of RPC, but what about James Newton Howard. As far as I know he's not part of RCP. Did he was part of it during some time? Because you can see his collaborations with Zimmer in The Dark Knight and some of his other score but 2010 is the last year when a score from him appears in here.


...2017-04-30 10:09:02
Yes he was part of RCP... And it looks like to me that Trevor Morris is not part of RCP too


Hybrid Soldier2017-04-30 10:29:17

Having not seen the film and having no desire to waste my time, I am genuinely curious what the hype is all about.

For anyone who has seen it, what does it sound like? I love Balfe and Mansell, so this is pretty intriguing to me.


Ando2017-04-20 05:22:57
Not sure how to describe it reallly . Beautiful . Soulful . Electronic vibes and orchestral. Nothing like anything I've heard before at least .


Everan2017-04-20 16:55:12
Is it like Tron Legacy? More sinthy, less sinthy, orchestral and so on?


Ando2017-04-20 17:16:58
Nothing like Tron. It's a fresh approach of Wendy Carlos and classical.
Very emotional and unique


mpolonest123 2017-04-20 17:24:43
Interesting.

I heard a few comparisons to Terminator Genisys, but I'm really curious about Mansell's contribution.

It's very much like TRON :)

Great score . I couldn't really tell who did what though but either way good job


rockhound2017-04-10 11:02:15
if it is hard to tell who did what, then it is a bit strange to hire balfe for help. because that means balfe wrote in the same style as mansell. so why did they hire balfe? or balfe wrote almost the whole score. then it makes sense, that there are no differences.


antovolk2017-04-12 16:53:28

Jim2017-04-10 01:45:44
Obviously there was more going on behind-the-scenes than just problems at the pressing plant. This release was canceled for more reasons than that (probably having to do with Balfe's involvement).

What happened with Pinar Toprak? It supposed she will make the score


Joshua2017-03-29 01:28:19
Apparently she was replaced.


Scorefan2017-03-29 03:15:29
Wow, it's a surprise. From what i know, the movie should have arrived in 2016 and she worked on the movie for almost two years when it was in production.


rockhound2017-03-29 09:04:11
jerry bruckheimer came on board for re-shots, so ofc they also have to change the score now. i like lorne, but a score by pinar toprak would have been really nice.


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-29 10:01:28
Well that is depressingly predictable. Pinar Toprak is incredibly talented, and it's not that Balfe *isn't*, but he's so ubiquitous. He's not the one in need of a big break. And for all Zimmer's talk recently of raising the profile of female composers in Hollywood...


rockhound2017-03-29 10:18:02
im sure its because bruckheimer wants his typical sound and for this type of movie, its no surprise, that he wants a rcp score. i was very surprised when bruckheimer accepted christopher young for Deliver Us from Evil. but that movie was not typical rcp territory and the director worked also with young before.


Hybrid Soldier2017-03-29 23:24:03
It's not about who "needs" a break or "deserve" it. She got a chance, she blew it in the mind of people making this (probably very lame) film.


SteveMusic2017-03-31 09:59:39
No one should get a movie because they need a break ! Also because of what sex they are . Maybe her score was bad ! That's not sexist . I'm looking forward to
Balfe's score for this


Peter2017-03-31 10:30:18
Why is it a shame that her score has been replaced ? If you don't do a good job then that is what happens. This will be EPIC . Balfe and Bruckheimer will be amazing .


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-31 12:44:05
Maybe it was bad. Maybe not. We don't know at this stage. All I DO know is that she's a good composer (based on what I've heard of hers previously), and she was likely tossed off the project not because of any fault of her score but because Bruckheimer wanted someone he was familiar with. Without giving her a chance to maybe rework her score instead.

Assuming the reason she was rejected is because she did a bad job is pretty naive.


rockhound2017-03-31 13:39:37
its clear, that it would have been necessary for her to rework the score, not because her score was bad, but because of the extensive reshots. we dont know if bruckheimer didnt want her to rework the music or she just had no time for it. but i also think, bruckheimer is the reason.


Samual2017-03-31 14:53:58
They probably also wanted a big blockbuster score . I haven't heard anything by
Pinar that is big size . She is a great writer but Lorne's music is another league


rockhound2017-03-31 15:14:11
pinar can combine synths with orchestra as good as lorne. her Behind Enemy Lines II shows that. and lets be honest, how can you proof, that you can write big size, if nobody gives you the chance to write such a score?


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-31 15:14:30
She wrote some great action music for The Wind Gods.


Filmmusicfan2017-03-31 15:28:33
It's pretty obvious . Lorne delivers and is a different league . Not sure why this is even a conversation !


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-31 15:39:41
We don't know anything about the situation, so no, it's not "pretty obvious". For all we know Toprak's score is the greatest thing ever composed, a mighty epic that would dwarf even Star Wars or the Lord of the Rings. Alternately, it could also be a great big pile of crap. So you have no foundation for saying that Balfe is "in a different league", none whatsoever. Neither would I for assuming Toprak's score would be better than Balfe's - which is why I never said that, and never will, until I actually hear both scores.

This is what I do know: Lorne Balfe, while a good composer, is hardly starved for work. Pinar Toprak, also a good composer, rarely gets any (especially not on a big effects-driven spectacle like this). That makes this rejection personally disappointing to me as a film music fan.

Incidentally, I wonder if any of these people shitting on Toprak have even heard a note of her music?


rockhound2017-03-31 15:48:03
it gets a bit boring, that lorne is "everywhere" at the moment. if bruckheimer wanted someone from rcp, mark mancina would have been a more interesting choice. im already happy that geoff zanelli composed the new Pirates and not zimmer. and lets face reality. they hired bruckheimer and danny cannon to save the movie, so ofc they also go with a safe composer, who is experienced with this kind of movie and situation.


Michel 2017-03-31 19:31:19
why is it boring lorne is everywhere ? His music is fantastic and it's great to hear
More of his work


Scorefan2017-04-01 01:12:53
The movie should have arrived two years ago. The previous cuts were not satisfactory to the producers. That's the reason why the producers called Bruckheimer and Danny Cannon to the reshoots. Pinar worked 2 years on the film. Dean Devlin originally has in mind another composer but after Dean listened The Wins God he assigned Pinar to wrote the score. With the reshoots and the introduction of Bruckheimer to save the film, i think in part of the contract that he established the film composer, that's the reason of the rejection and the introduction of Lorne.
I have not listened anything from Pinar score, but some people say it's epic.
It could have been interesting hear Pinar score in this blockbuster film, like Carter Burwell when he was assigned to score Thor 2. But we will have to wait when the rejected score surface.


Bioscope2017-04-01 06:15:07
i wonder if that 'other' composer was David Arnold? It's sad that he only does tv now. Even Bond was ripped out from under him....


Zimmermusicfan2017-04-01 12:00:40
Weird why his is even a sexist conversation ! It shouldn't be . Balfe is a top composer and delivers . What big films did the other composer do ? Exactly


rockhound2017-04-01 13:20:00
the only reason balfe scores big films now is because he worked with zimmer many years before. otherwise nobody would have recognized him. ofc he also has to be good, but he only got the chance to prove that, because he worked with zimmer on the right films. the same goes with zanelli, powell, gregson-williams and mancina.


Tim2017-04-01 14:21:14
Rockhound your wrong . Balfe was a very successful composer for tv in the UK before .


rockhound2017-04-01 14:35:44
tim....that is not the point. nobody would have hired balfe for Lego Batman, Ghost In The Shell or Geostorm, because he was already successful in uk television. he gets big size films now, because he worked with zimmer on big size films and could prove that he is a good composer for such films. a mix of connection + skills. pinar toprak has sadly just the skills....


Tim2017-04-01 14:45:01
Rockhound - your apoint doesn't quite make sense though . There are a log list of composers that have worked for Simmer that haven't achieved success ?????


Tim2017-04-01 14:57:25
Excuse my spelling !!!!


Edmund Meinerts2017-04-01 20:31:23
"What big films did the other composer do ? Exactly"

Now imagine if the director of Driving Miss Daisy or Black Rain or Rain Man had said that back in 1988. No Hans Zimmer. See why that's an incredibly stupid thing to say?


Ds2017-04-01 21:24:31
@Edmund, those are not really what anyone would define as "big films". These are small-scale movies with a large audience potential.
If you look back, Hans spent years doing obscure projects (just look at his filmography between 1982 and 1988). Then he was offered Rain Man & Driving Miss Daisy, which allowed him to get noticed. Then he got Backdraft, who allowed him to go for a quite epic sound, in a still relatively small-scale film. He continued scoring small movies for years. His "big blockbuster movies" came only later on, starting from The Lion King.
If you look at Pinar Toprak now, I think she's still at the very first stage: working on obscure movies. Asking for her to get large-scale blockbusters now seems a little early...


SamMusi2017-04-01 21:43:49
Rain man and driving miss Daisy were not $100 million films . Don't think Edmund understands how the industry' works !!!! When a film has reshoots etc the studio brings in the best team / editors , writers and composers .


Macejko2017-04-01 23:44:32
No, Edmund is right, because you can't really apply the 80's moviemaking policy to current standards. I think the risk of hiring Hans to do Driving Miss Daisy is perfectly comparable to this Pinar Toprak doing the - let's be honest here - low profile Geostorm movie, even though budget-wise it might be considered a A-list blockbuster.

What was the risk exactly hiring Hans to score Driving Miss Daisy?


rockhound2017-04-02 07:54:54
even Rain Man was a success for hans, the producers of Black Rain had problems to hire hans. but ridley scott wanted just him. the same goes for Days Of Thunder. bruckheimer and simpson didnt want him at the beginning, because he was nobody for them. but tony scott wanted him, so they gave him a chance. so...the risk was not to hire hans for Driving Miss Daisy, but because of Driving Miss Daisy. if nobody gives you a chance, you cant prove your talent.

I don't you get given a 100 million dollar film because " you need a chance" ! You get given it because you have proven you are good . Just like any other business . You don't get a CEO job because you "need a chance" !! Life doesn't work that way. Not sure why this is any different that Pan when Powell took over . No one got upset then . Also - back to the topic in hand - saw ghost earlier today and it was fantastic . Visually beautiful and great action . Balfe and Clint did an amazing job and totally exciting .


Mike2017-04-02 11:18:39
@Hybrid do you have any further credits ? Really loved the score


rockhound2017-04-02 11:24:04
ofc it needs someone who gives you a chance. when trevor rabin co-scored Con Air, it didnt mean automaticaly he was the perfect choice to score Armageddon. but bruckheimer gave him a chance, to prove it. but also on that movie rabin got a lot of help from other composers, because bruckheimer thought, it was better for the movie. but this movie put rabin on the radar of other producers, because bruckheimer gave him a chance to score a big budget movie, although it was just rabins third hollywood movie. not even zimmer was able to get such a big movie assignment with his third movie.


Sam2017-04-02 15:33:06
Trevor wasn't given a "chance" . He was in one of the biggest bands at that time and according to interviews still had to pitch themes ideas . And he was then chosen. No one gets given a chance - they get chosen because they are amazing at what they do


rockhound2017-04-02 16:14:13
you mean so amazing, that bruckheimer thought, that it is better, when trevor gets help by 6 other composers? just because he was a member of a successful rock band doesnt qualify him to write a symphonic score for 140 million dollar movie. it was bruckheimers risk to hire him. and yes, he had to write the themes first, to convince bruckheimer. but themes are not a whole score. so yes....bruckheimer gave him a "chance" to prove that he can handle such a big movie. i mean, trevor scored Glimmer Man, because he gave steven seagal guitar lessons. he never scored a hollywood movie before, but seagal gave him a chance as a favour to score that movie. ofc u call that "a chance". or what else is that?


Everan2017-04-02 17:06:18
This Ghost in the Shell OST really spakrs up converstation here, huh?


Hybrid Soldier2017-04-03 04:20:47
Yeah I don't think Rabin's beginnings on Con Air & Armageddon is a good example because he was fully cornered by RCP.


Edmund Meinerts2017-04-07 12:15:25
"No one gets given a chance - they get chosen because they are amazing at what they do"

And that's the thing - based on the admittedly limited body of work she has put out so far, Toprak DOES seem to be very good at what she does. But because she's an unknown quantity to Bruckheimer she got replaced by a familiar name. Every talented composer also needs a bit of luck to get those first few gigs. "You get gigs because you've proven that you are good" - but how do you prove that you are good without getting gigs? You gotta get your foot in the door somehow. Instead they decided to smash it in Toprak's face.


rockhound2017-04-07 12:34:48
edmund, in general i agree with you, but Geostorm is a special situation. it looks like that this movie had big problems and they try to save this mess now. i can imagine, bruckheimer hasn't even listen to pinars score. they hired him, because he was successful in the past with the way he made movies. and one part of his movies is a rcp score. so they hired a composer of that company. they can take no risk anymore. that's all. ofc it is also possible, that her score was really bad or that she had just no time rework her music, but i dont think that.


Edmund Meinerts2017-04-07 16:23:10
Sure, I'm not surprised that Bruckheimer would act in this way. I'm not *surprised* or anything. Just disappointed. And as always, the studio logic of "our film is in trouble, better throw out the score" just doesn't make sense to me. Obviously the problems run far deeper than that, but for the most part it's too late to fix, so they have to go for the one thing they still can change...except it won't save the film at all. :(


rockhoud2017-04-07 17:50:48
imdb says, they spend another 15 million dollar for serious re-shots. the movie had far more problems than the score. i would have loved to hear an epic pinar toprak disaster movie score, but i totally understand, why they hired balfe.


Fanomusic2017-04-08 15:09:39
Rockhound not sure if you understand the process . During test screensings , in the focus groups they ask questions about storyline , what is not working and among other subjects , music is questioned. It is not always the studio that makes the decisions ! I'm looking forward to this soundtrack .


TomP2017-04-08 18:14:38
Not sure why Geostorm is even being discussed. This happens all the time so why is it a factor ????? Anyway!!!! Saw Ghost today and it was amazing in 3D.wish there was a score release and not just songs

Looks like there won't be a soundtrack release and only songs ? It is a fantastic score . Balfe's best so far I think .


Mike2017-04-03 18:49:09
@hybrid do you not have any clips yet ?


JBSO992017-04-04 17:34:59
I hope this gets released soon. I haven't watched the movie yet but I've read that the score is one of the best things of it, so I cannot waitto listen to mer Lorne Balfe (along with Clint Mansell)

Any news about a soundtrack release? It was supposed to be released yesterday, still no sign of it.


Alex2017-04-01 16:48:07
No clue. No one's really saying anything about it. I've emailed a few people at Lakeshore, so hopefully I'll be able to gather more information. I desperately want this score.

Watched Ghost in 3D and Lorne's score is excellent . I hope a soundtrack is released and not just the songs !!


Markmusc2017-04-01 10:45:00
Have to agree . Really great score. Batman lego was my favourite score of the year but this is close . Any news about a release for the soundtrack because I can only find the songs ?

so....is this getting released at all??

antovolk reply Replies: 3 || 2017-03-29 03:43:06
just came back from film.....did they shamelessly end up getting Balfe to rescore Mansell's main thematic material in the first half of the film including the shelling/opening titles (which btw, have the GHOST IN THE SHELL title appear TWICE?)? Because it's so different from the IMAX preview music wise, I was so bummed as Mansell's main theme was just amazing there, and in the finished it's just...eh? Mansell's original theme shines through the final third very nicely though.


Hybrid Soldier2017-03-29 23:26:20
The opening was definitely Lorne, it sounded like Terminator Genisys ! lol


antovolk2017-03-30 12:21:35
it's just suggestive (between that and how he was announced so close to release) that LB was brought on at almost if not the very last minute to redo some of Mansell's early cues.

Also Clint's been eerily silent about the whole film on his Twitter and social media while Balfe has been hyping it quite a bit.

I want this soundtrack NOW!!!! I think lorne is the most interesting composer to come out of RCP since Powelll

Everan reply Replies: 3 || 2017-03-21 15:27:34
No idea if anyone can confirm but, the clip of the water fight was released (looked nice) and there's scoring involve but no idea if it's the film actual score or just music picked for this type of ad.

If it is, sounds pretty cool, very Mass Effect-ish with some Balfe action around.


antovolk2017-03-22 11:07:03
It's the film score. There's also a 5min clip released this morning with more of the score too.


Everan2017-03-22 16:27:40
Yeah, just saw it, and loving the score!
