Rogue One was last minute change on Giacchino. I would like to hear Alexandre Desplat score to make a correct analysis from both scores. Besides that and with the little time, Giacchino's score is good, in the same style from maestro Williams. <br>Solo score is more different. Maestro Williams wrote the main theme and more cues, but what make the score different is Powell. He adapts Solo theme, and some of themes the original trilogy, but he puts him own stamp. Definitely is a Star Wars Score but with Powell stamp. Something Giacchino, maybe for the time, did not develop.<br>The film, well, i will watch on DVD.graciasWhile I always liked this score, it wasn’t until recently (when I revisited the film and album) that I realized how amazing it really is. There is still nothing that tops “Evacuating London” or the “Aslan” theme in terms of modern fantasy material. Each of the themes are brilliantly interconnected with each other, but stand on their own as well. I do wish there something a bit more distinctive for the White Witch, but that’s a small complaint.<br><br>The only other score that really reminds me of this (in terms of the string writing and piano material) is “Winters Tale” by Rupert. Also a pretty solid fantasy score.I LOVE IT!!They kept the volume of the music so low in the movie, while rouge ones was jacked up and used as a center piece rather than side music like they did for John. Johnson piece is far better,  it they gave it a back seat <br>
But Rogue One or Solo?<br><br>Because i remember more the music in RO after watching the movie than in Solo (well, maybe is because that theme for the character is so unispired and only i remember certain moments of the music)We are just gonna have to agree to disagree. ;-)I just said I haven't watched the movie or listened to the full score yet.Still have to disagree, I love the new “Park Theme” and the way it sort of takes over from the classic theme. Then you have the Indominus theme, Owen’s theme, the villain theme, the family theme, the source music, etc.<br>I’ll take that any day over Lost World and JP3. Is it as good as the original score? Hell no, but not many scores are.'<br><br>The Lost World was a coherent evolution in the franchise, Williams maintains the original theme, but creates a darker and more percussive score (listen the expanded version by La La Land), because the movie isn't like Jurassic Park. And i getting appreciate more the Don Davis score for JPIII, better orchestrated than Jurassic World, both scores are FAR better than Jurassic World (one for a coherent and agressive tone and more memorable, and the other because is better orchestrated)<br><br>'And I do see the similarities between the vulture theme and those other ones listed. It’s definitely not original, but it is effective.'<br><br>I don't see any similaraties with the Avengers theme, effective?, yeah, but not memorable and i'll pick up any day than any theme in Jurassic WorldDo you remember any music outside the space chase?<br><br>Because i don't.
I only watched the movie once, but the fact that I didn't take away any memorable music from Rogue One is a huge problem for a Star Wars film. I haven't listened to this score yet, but I have more hopes for this than Rogue One.Between this one and Rogue One, I'll take the last one.<br><br>Unfortunately the two scores run away from the typical sound of the franchise and at various times seem just a pastiche copy.<br><br>It's a good score, but it does not feel so natural. Even Han's theme is almost unrecognizable, forgettable and incoherent with the character. It does not have the same identity as the themes of Luke, Leia, Rey, Anakin, Jyn, Yoda or Dameron.woow! love itIt's funny that when they announced that the star wars story films would be scored by different conposers, I was like... COME ONE JOHNY GET ON IT and sure enough a year later... Same with Pan (one of his best scores in my opinion).Well, for starters, the HAN SOLO theme Williams wrote is kind of...well...meh....<br><br>And I can see where Powell had to incorporate the original Star Wars and some Empire themes....Asteroid Field being one of them.<br><br>I just kinda hoped Powell would adapt Asteroid Field into something more than whatever the hell butchery happened here....
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! When was there a flute in this score?? I just noticed there's a credit for a flute soloist, and I've listened to this score several times and never noticed a flute? Does anyone have any idea which track it might be?It's really sad how more than half of this score is just very messy bombastic sound rather than a more structured melodic/thematic approach, this coming from a hardcore Powell fan. The saddest thing is that this was THE film for him to score, full of action and chase sequences, which John has always excelled at. Here however, rather than his usual voice, it sounds as if he shies away from it and goes back to anything established by Williams every 30 seconds or so. Whenever it sounds like a cue is leading up to something interesting and exploring a new idea, it just shies away from it. This might have been on the directors/producer's side of things... or that's what I'm choosing to believe, at least. Don't get me wrong, every so often there are some sections that really do shine, this often being when Powell isn't just trying to sound Williamsy and/or referencing old SW material. Maybe I just need to give the album a few more listens. Usually happens whenever a new Powell soundtrack album is released. Not sure, though. Just by listening to Ferdinand a few times, for example, you could really feel and understand the story, its characters and their development, as their themes developed as well. This one is just a mess and feels... off.Such an inspiring track. Loved it when it was released and still love it.Only now just watched this show on Netflix and love balfes score . Can’t believe this dark moody music is his !cant wait for Mission Impossible FalloutIt's a beautiful score. Already curious as to what he brings with The Meg

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!

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.

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!

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.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 1 || 2017-07-11 03:10:53
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.
