I hear a lot of music throughout the postcad, I imagine from the movie, piano and very orchestral, it promisesseeming score snippets at 6:29, 29:13 and 34:55.in the first episode is nothing about the score :/ mehhThis is a beautiful score by the way. I have feeling this will get lost with NTTD, Dune, and WW84 coming out, but people should give this a listen. The new overture is a nice remix of the main PEII theme. And I "Surfing Dolphins" is yet again a winner.Dave didn't work on it, but a few Blue Planet stuff were used so he gets some sort of credit in the cuesheet for "A Celebration".
Who did Zimmer do this with? Shea and Fleming?May Mr. Zimmer and his team be interested on “extracting” music from the human body for medical purposes?<br>You can reach me at:<br>jcp77452 at um.es<br>ThanksNot only is the album fun as a concept album, it's a surprisingly good score to picture. The themes are really clear for each of the characters and the music really fits the action. Even though the action is kind of corny. Real underrated gem. <br><br>I finally watched the film and even though it's a sort of 5 or 6 out of 10 average/okay movie, it reminded me just how much personality gets injected when Hans Zimmer does the score. He really has a strong voice.Yeah this is a pretty fair assessment.<br><br>While I’ve found myself liking it less and less now that we’re hearing things like ME or Alita from Tom there are still some excellent tracks throughout. <br>(The Dark Tower, Collateral Damage, Guardian, It Will Fall, Roland of Eld)<br><br>My biggest gripe is with the purely sound design cues. They honestly go nowhere and end up padding the album out. What this score needed was a solid villain motif and some more orchestral underscore. It’s like one-half of the score is the more traditional side of Holkenborg whereas the rest falls into his early habit of just making noise.I give it a listen after three years, and i still like it.<br><br>If isn't as good as Mortal Engines or Alita, have a interesting aspects to enjoy: his main theme for Roland, some of the action cues are strong, even the dramatic ones (The Creed or Collateral Damage), some of the sound design are interesting.<br><br>Maybe the weakest aspect of the album, is the middle, some tracks are not that interesting to listen.
woooooow <3From the "No Time to Die" podcast description...<br><br>"You can also be the first to hear exclusive score from Hans Zimmer and brand new recordings from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra from Bond 25 brought to you from Decca Records."<br><br>First of six episodes is released on Wednesday 30th September!!that would be great@GR7 that sounds really cool care to share?Hi! What's the story with track "Into Space"? They really copy track "Planet Descent" and name it that "Into Space"?
I agree guys. Yhis album and parts of the experiments are vey enjoyable. I tend to listen to OST prriodically, and each year there is one or severall scores that replace what I listen the most, and so on... but Dark phoenix is one I can listen every time. <br>I made personal suites assembling music from the OST and mixing it with expremients, and it results in a 50 min suites album, I really like it.Same for me. I'm so happy ! :DA Celebration? It's actually on youtube now.Got it. I assumed as much for the first 3. Thanks.hahahaha ... crack, sorry. Well so far there is no news of anything. Only the video that one track and one with Dave, but it's a preview.<br>I'm not sure how to get news on this, I really would like to get it hahaha.

I give it a listen after three years, and i still like it.

If isn't as good as Mortal Engines or Alita, have a interesting aspects to enjoy: his main theme for Roland, some of the action cues are strong, even the dramatic ones (The Creed or Collateral Damage), some of the sound design are interesting.

Maybe the weakest aspect of the album, is the middle, some tracks are not that interesting to listen.


mpolonest1232020-09-28 20:10:32
Yeah this is a pretty fair assessment.

While I’ve found myself liking it less and less now that we’re hearing things like ME or Alita from Tom there are still some excellent tracks throughout.
(The Dark Tower, Collateral Damage, Guardian, It Will Fall, Roland of Eld)

My biggest gripe is with the purely sound design cues. They honestly go nowhere and end up padding the album out. What this score needed was a solid villain motif and some more orchestral underscore. It’s like one-half of the score is the more traditional side of Holkenborg whereas the rest falls into his early habit of just making noise.

Some deleted scenes are on YouTube, they feature what seem to be early cue demos. From what it sounds like the music was slightly more orchestral than what we got in the finished version. There’s even a theme for the Man in Black


Hybrid Soldier2020-06-11 16:23:32
That score was written 3 times by Tom, so that makes sense !

Since JXL is a hot topic now, does anyone know what the chronological order for this score is?

Junk Swatch! reply Replies: 3 || 2018-02-26 15:21:25
Guys, I apologise for being so crap. I wanted to be Swatch! but couldn't do it. My samples are not good and Grolsch is powerful.

When I rock, it tends to be in a disco with guys my age. We rock a lot and my music heats the beats. Schwag! HZ made me make a theme for Dark Tower. I wanted to do a GROOVE, TIME. Didn't work.

So, I looked at this guy Goldman, Goldsmith or some old guy. He is my age but as I wear a hat I am cooler than him.

He does cool themes. So I thought he is cool. But then I heard about this crazy Scottish guy Doyle, so I based my theme on his work!

Anyways, I party. Man, you should see my abs!

If this is a troll, it doesnt even make sense anymore.


Maxim Vlasov2018-02-26 16:12:14
I see someone bored!


JBSO992018-02-26 18:01:50
Why he does not give up? He needs to enter in every page in the site and shit on every composer around here.

It looks like someone need to get a life...

The main theme (Roland of Eld) is awesome, yet the rest is painfully unremarkable.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 5 || 2017-07-28 14:30:24
Just took a listen to this and am so impressed. There are many JXL mannerisms in the string writing and electronics, but outside of those I don't think I've heard him write in this huge fantasy style before. "The Dark Tower" and "Roland of Eld" make me wish he was still on board for Justice League.
And huge praise to whoever did the mixing on this one!


JBSO992017-07-28 19:38:16
I have listened to those two tracks and they sounded amazing.
I wish Junkie stayed in Justice League for hearing more of him in this style.
I still have to listen to this full score but for now I like it a lot.


mpolonest123 2017-07-28 21:39:36
The album definitely could use some trimming, there are some filler tracks which kill the flow. Outside of that it's a pretty strong release...


JBSO992017-07-28 23:17:37
It looks like there are many short tracks that usually stop the flow of an album but it looks pretty cool.


mpolonest123 2017-07-29 15:58:11
The big problem with most of his album releases is that he tends to include some of the more atmospheric underscore which just doesn't make for a great listening experience. If you condense any JXL album down you can definitely get a better representation of his music.


Ahmad2017-07-29 17:05:24
Well, let me give you a very simple solution to that: make your own playlist or mixtape or whatever based on what you want to hear. I'd rather have as much music as possible and edit myself than have an incomplete release.

29 tracks!! Even if on an average each track is 2 min long it's almost an hour 20 mins. Well, I'm not the one to complain about more music. Bring it on. Hopefully something good.

There's the cover of the soundtrack is at Amazon already! Music by Tom Holkenborg.

So excited to hear this! I think Tom mentioned in an interview that it will definitely be different than his current style. Not sure what to expect but I'm hopeful that we will get a good cross between western and fantasy.


Waymann2017-07-11 08:30:22
As long as it doesn't sound like Mad Max, Deadpool or BvS, then i'm excited.
