He's right, it's outCheck Soulseek ;)He posted it before this site added the tracklist.Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.
When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>
@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion kingBest film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)
Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...

Just listened to the album again and I liked it even more. Balfe this year is on top form and he has created so many different scores that he is slowly becoming one of y favourites.
The thing that surprises me is the little talk this score is getting, despite being one of Balfe's bests.

That web site rarely give 5 Stars !!!! Well done to Lorne . He deserves it and the score


PetriM2017-06-30 05:44:11
In my humble opinion this music is what I yearn for when I listen to film music . That review is 100% . It's perfect


ABoshn2017-06-30 06:22:41
After having not heard of this film I was surprised to see this review . I have now purshaced the soundtrack and agree . The score is everything one would wish for . 5/5


Mike2017-06-30 17:55:09
Impressive !


StephM2017-07-01 04:28:35
Strange that when a fantastic score like this doesn't get as many people talking about it like Transformers !!!!!!! Come on people !


Edmund Meinerts2017-07-01 12:52:10
Are you kidding, StephM? 2017 at this website has been nothing but slobbering all over Lorne Balfe.


James2017-07-01 16:41:30
Lol
This is funny and curious at same time. He is not like a Michael Giacchino. But...


Miguel2017-07-01 23:46:05
The slobbering is well deserved . Slobber away !!!


PetMusic2017-07-02 01:55:19

Amazing soundtrack from the Meastro . 5/5 again by Balfe

We just watched the live performance of the score with an orchestra to the film in London and it was great. Lorne was playing piano with an orchestra . Emotional score . Hope he gets a nomination for this score . Brian Cox is unbeliable in the film playing Churchill


Anonymous2017-06-07 03:50:31
Superb score! Esp love The Beach - many parts remind me of The Coral Atoll from The Thin Red Line...


Mephariel2017-06-07 09:01:37
Also Interstellar. The cue "Purpose" sounds very similar in parts, to the "Where We're Going" in Interstellar.


...2017-06-07 14:26:25
is there any chance to watch it on youtube or something?

Lorne is the worst compser from rc! sounds like frost/Nixon! i know he was there the additional composer. but every time the same thing?


Miguel2017-06-06 10:16:08
Yes . That's why Lego Batman sounds identical to Frost Nixon !!!!! Very funny Zulu!

Lorne is performing this with an orchestra live to the film tomorrow in London. Is anyone going ? We tried for tickets but it sold out last week!! Sounds really good.
