Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did it
Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.

Finally got around to watch this - heavily underappreciated- sequel, and listening to its fantastic score I'm almost positive Jackman had nothing to do with it and it was all Matt Margeson's work.

I liked his Jumanji, to be honest, but it "only" felt like Jackman slowly coming to his senses after years of lackluster input (Kong, Civil War, Jack Reacher etc.) - it was by no means a strong, thematic, action packed, masterfully orchestrated score as Kingsman 2 (or the first one, for that matter) was. This alone tells me volumes about the composer-listing shennanigans of this soundtrack. If this isn't Margeson through and through, I will eat my hat and chug it down with whiskey.


George2018-01-23 02:26:54
You may be right, but I actually think Jackman did a pretty good job with his scores this year. I enjoyed Jumanji, and i may be in the minority here but i actually really enjoyed Kong as well. I tend to think he and Margeson just have a great collaborating chemistry because those Kingsman scores are two of the best scores either one of them has done.

Is the music from the scene where Harry remembers who he was before on the soundtrack? Can’t find it.


NotSoAnonymous2018-01-07 00:54:24
That track is called "Rage and Serenity" and is actually on the X-Men: First Class album.

I'm getting offered stuff occasionally. Didn't come to pass in the end, but I kept the tracklist.

Do you get the complete or expanded score or onlu the tracklist?

Does anyone know a chronological order or is this chronological??


FunnyML2017-12-02 05:15:39
Just put "02. Memories Of Harry" between "04. Poppy" and "05. Incomig Missiles" and it should be chronological.

"12. Whiskey's Demons" and "25. Kingsman Hoedown" seem to be unused though.

"Mutant and Proud" (from X-Men First Class) was used on the scene when Harry's gets back his memories. Am i right?

My fault, it was "Rage and Serenity"


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-26 12:21:27
Yeah, I noticed that! It was either that cue exactly dropped in, or a temp version of it that is so close as to be practically indistinguishable from the original. Of course, same director, same composer, same studio...guess there are no rights/plagiarism issues there!

Is it just me or is Poppy’s theme the same thing as Jack and Jill’s theme from puss n boots?


Anonymous2017-09-23 17:30:12
Probably. The first Kingsman sounds just like Winter Soldier.


Medigo2017-09-24 00:56:01
Winter Soldier sounds almost nothing like Kingsman
Civil war maybe


JBSO992017-09-24 22:39:10
The first Kingsman is by far superior than Civil War and it has nothing similiar to The Winter Soldier.

Civil War for me was quite bland and generic but the first Kingsman has some very good themes and great strong action cues.

On the other hand I really liked The Winter Soldier, but not as much as the Kingsman scores.

David reply Replies: 0 || 2017-09-24 00:10:05
Yes! "No Time for Emotion" and "Not In Vain" contain John Denver's "Country Roads"! No Time for Emotion is Mark Strong singing it like in the film!! I'm so happy they included this! :D

Just watched the movie and it was awesome, well not as great s the first one, but still very entertaining.

As for the score, by now I have just listened to it in the movie and there worked perfectly, I would say even better than in the first one, with some old themes and some very good new themes, specially I love the Poppy theme.

Now I will listen to the album to see what tracks are we missing but it looks like a really complete pack.

Waymann reply Replies: 1 || 2017-09-22 10:34:40
Great fun score. It has everything I expected. Although that country vibe in some tracks is nice not really my cup of tea.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-22 12:37:36
I guess that's for the Statesmen. Would have preferred an all-out Western sound for them to contrast with the Bond-type music for the Kingsmen...that would have been fun!

Waymann reply Replies: 4 || 2017-09-21 16:11:26
The score has 25 tracks and is about 1 hour and 16 minutes long. Samples sound awesome. Great action score with new theme's and variations of the old ones. Looking forward to hearing it in full.


JBSO992017-09-21 16:41:29
Where can I listen to those samples? I would love to hear some bits of the score before watching the movie.


Iamtommie2017-09-21 17:15:33
Where did you get this information and samples?


Waymann2017-09-21 20:14:22
iTunes SriLanka is the first itunes store to get the new releases online on friday. But by now you can also go to iTunes New Zeland or something and checkout the album and it’s samples.

I have read on soundtrack.net that the CD will be out on the 20th of September, two days before the movie release. Is that true?

Anyway, I cannot wait for this one. The music for the first one was really funny and entertaining and I hope this one will be as good as the first one.


Waymann2017-09-13 08:57:25
No the CD comes out on October 20th, not september.

Really looking forward to this one. The soundtrack for the first film was one of my favorites of 2015. Also a new Thomas Newman score that day. I'm a happy man.


JBSO992017-09-13 10:09:48
Oops! Yeah, my mistake, the CD releas it is in October. Anyway, it will surely be released digitally the day the movie premieres.
