Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.
As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the score
as for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picasso
why his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?Modern Warfare 2 is a lot in the album!<br><br>- It's Good Shit Lieatenant<br>- We're Dangerous People<br>- What Else You Got (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- God's Gun (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- We Ride Together, We Die Together (Bad Boys Remix)We're Dangerous PeopleCall of the Wild coming by Hollywood Records, that means, digital.Bloodshoot coming from Sony Classical

I've just listened to the full album and I have to say, it's both very suprising and very good music. I really like what Ramin has created in this one, even if it's not his usual style, it's a wonderful and beautiful score. I'm loving the main theme!


Michael Hayko 2019-09-02 22:05:24
I always find it amusing that people are surprised when they hear a score from their favorite composer and it's totally different from what they're used to. Are composers only to write action thriller music if that's what they're known for? Or are they allowed to express them self by composing a score for a film with a romantic inclination?

Very surprising score from Ramin, I'll say a rather pleasant surprise. First time I hear something like that from him!

Anyone else happing trouble downloading track 1,3,4 and 5 from the itunes store. It says not available...


Waymann2017-10-06 09:38:42
Also Djawadi suprises again with a sound we haven't heard from him. I see this score ending up high on my best of the year list. It's fantastic.


JBSO992017-10-06 12:18:19
Does anybody know if this is available on Spotify or something like that? I want to fully hear it first, and then I decide if I buy it or not. Thanks in advance!


Waymann2017-10-06 13:11:29
Maybe it will be on youtube in the next few days. But this score is definitely worth your money. This is theme based score with no atmospheric tracks.


JBSO992017-10-06 14:41:47
Wow, that's very good news. This looks like it's gonna be one of my favourites of the year. I cannot wait to hear it!

Waymann reply Replies: 3 || 2017-10-03 08:41:01
Digital release is this friday as expected... pre-order up on itunes, no samples.


JBSO992017-10-03 14:05:36
Well, no samples but there is the suite to give you an idea of how it will sound like.
Even if this Friday is thr release of Blade Runner 2049 and that will grab the majority of attention (probably including mine), I'm really looking forward to hear this score to discover how Djawadi complexes music outside the Game of Thrones/Warcraft/Pacific Rim style and so, that are the one I know of him (and also The Great Wall and Westworld).


Waymann2017-10-03 15:17:24
Saw a feature this morning about the score on this film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQxcIcah2pQ Sounds great.


JBSO992017-10-03 17:30:04
Yeah, I watched it too. It looks like it's going to be something new in Djawadi's scores. I hope the rest of the score is as good as the suite.

So here's a suite for this film. Sounds really good! soundcloud.com/ lakeshore-records/mountain-between-us-suite-mountain-between -us-soundtrack/s-4dxhj

Thanks for posting this! This sounds indeed amazing, very different in style from typical Djawadi scores.
