Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell...
...and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.
love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.
M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.

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!

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.
