Dude, no need to be harsh about it. Not everyone knows how these processes work. It was a reasonable assumption that there might be a specific timeline for leaks. <br><br>With that said, thanks for the info.Maybe. Clever deduction. Wait and see then ;)Oh my god. It's time to put an end to this. There is NO timeline as to when complete scores are leaked. They leak when the person in possession of them feels like leaking them. TF4 was November of 2014 because that's when the files were uploaded to Paramount's guilds/FYC site for academy members to listen to. Same with interstellar. It has absolutely nothing to do with time. I have some scores that haven't leaked yet. And I'm not going to. Why? Because I was asked not to. Not because I feel the time is right. K? Glad we cleared that up.Does anyone remember around when the TF2 and TF3 complete scores were leaked? I know TF4's was around November 2014, I figured that might give an idea of when TF5's will get out.hybrid created a very good suite from this movie, also because he left out the more uninteresting action stuff. the whole score is not original, but the themes are great because they transport emotions and excitement. the quiter parts are also very nice. im sure the actionmusic is very functional in the movie, but as a stand alone listening experience it is not very convincing. too much electronics which make too much noise. when the themes kick in, it sounds good, but a better mix of orchestra and electronics would have helped. sadly you won't find a second "Burn around the moon" or "Goodbye/Landing" from Armageddon in this score.
Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.
Have to agree because if you haven’t an interest in Lorne’s work then just don’t goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply don’t click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You don’t have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>
> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! I’m scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????

The tracklist provided above isn't the two disc version, is it?


Waymann2017-10-05 08:50:16
For once and all. Yes it is the tracklist for the 2 disc set. Everything from the movie is included on this, except some minor ambient sound design parts. RCP did a good job on this release.

Marianelli-96 reply Replies: 11 || 2017-10-01 13:53:24
Not entirely sure whether anybody will be able to help out here, but apparently there are 2 different versions of the score/soundtrack available. A single CD version (Y4CDBR01) and a 2 CD version (Y4BR01COMBO). I appreciate none of you here likely no any more than I do but I've sent an e-mail enquiring into the details of the order to Epic Records, as I'm certain I bought the 2CD version and yet my order seems to say otherwise. Is anyone else having this issue, or can anybody shed some light on what exactly is going on? The entire process of releasing the score seems to have been somewhat problematic.


Hybrid Soldier2017-10-01 15:03:23
Yeah no comment the whole thing is very amateurish...

No tracklist, no extracts, nothing, you basically don't know what you're buying (it could be 2 CDs of disco remixes of Vangelis' original theme for all we know... -_- lol)...

And then there's the "issue"... A friend had called the number to ask them they seemed to keep saying there was only one item (and yet didn't even seem sure)... So I guess people are getting the 2 CD anyway but... nothing's sure... It's a big "?" so far...


Marianelli-962017-10-01 15:14:41
Yeah I have to admit I'm a tad exasperated by the lack of information available regarding this release, but I suppose it's just a product of the record label having such little experience in releasing soundtracks. That being said; this is the score for a multi-million dollar film, so like you say, it does just come across as incredibly 'amateurish'. I really appreciate you taking the time to get back to me though, and in some ways I can take consolation in knowing I'm not the only one having problems here. Thanks so much!


Ahmad2017-10-01 15:44:55
I don't think you need to worry about it. I pre-order it the very next day after it was announced and there is only one item to order which is the limited edition numbered 2-CD set.
Don't know about the "Y4BR01COMBO" thing. Thought it might have to do with the MP3 copy but that has its own code.


Bolidzar2017-10-02 19:48:22
There is only one release (thusfar). The Combo product number indicates the 2CD 2049 edition plus the download. The CD on its own is Y4CDBR01. The MP3 Product number is Y4CDBR01MP320

The whole second edition thing is ridiculous but I'm kinda into it lol. So are they gonna change the cover art each time the batch is sold out?

Anyway, the first edition has the better cover art.

I wish, Hans Z. & Benjamin W. could visit Vangelis and taking a photo of them together. This would be a wonderful gesture, kindness and a souvenir!

I wish, in the second CD, it were completely inspired musics for BR2049 composed by Vangelis, just like his third CD of "Blade Runner Trilogy, 25th Anniversary".

Zimmer said in the Q&A that they were brought on board when Villeneuve just finished the first assembly cut, and the four of them (DV, editor Joe Walker,HZ and BW) watched it together all for the first time.


Kingfannypack2017-10-03 21:39:21
Too many songs that aren't OST. I hope there are suites.


Poe2017-10-03 21:42:14
Presley and Sinatra?! Pfft :/


Waymann2017-10-03 22:00:13
Honestly I'm relieved it's only 5 songs (1 original song if I'm correct). Looking forward to it. Sounded like Wallfisch composed the main theme and did most of the work and Hans was more of a producer and fine-tuned the whole thing. Anyway I'm surprised Sia isn't doing a song for this film hahah.


JBSO992017-10-03 22:24:49
Wayman Luckily... (At least there are not many songs)

Also, I have a question, is this the 2CD or it's just one of the CDs? If this is just one of the CD maybe the other one are suites and so or, I hope not, some awful remixes.

PS: Have they played any samples in the facebook live streaming?


Anonymous2017-10-03 22:36:50
No samples during the live. I wouldn’t call this a Q&A either because the host read the questions but turned them into another question of his own. Also Hans his colorful socks are a mystery to me, they pop up everything we see him. haha.

Bill Koufo reply Replies: 1 || 2017-10-03 15:08:27
I have a question: Did Dennis Villeneuve approach both composers, or he approached Hans first, and then Hans chose Wallfisch as his partner? If it has happened that way, I am a bit surprised he didn't choose Tom Holkenborg who has praised Vangelis' score continuously and seems very experienced with this style of music...Of course I still consider Ben an excellent coice!


Waymann2017-10-03 15:18:57
I think it has to do something with Wallfisch his work on Dunkirk. I mean variation 15 sounds a bit like it could be in a Blade Runner movie...

Hedon reply Replies: 0 || 2017-10-02 17:29:57
Who else was involved with compositional duties/arrangements other than HZ and BW? I'm sure there must be some contributions by Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro or? They would make a great team given the need for the electronic Vangelis vibe in this score.

Whatever the case may be between composers, all I gotta say is this: if there's a scene involving wandering through the ruins of Las Vegas (which there is), make my composer Zimmer.

MrZimmerFan reply Replies: 1 || 2017-09-30 12:56:26
That's not possible, because all written by Johannsson was over-written by Zimmer and Wallfisch


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-30 14:12:06
Yeah... BTW Villeneuve commented on Johannsson :

"The thing I will say is that making movies is a laboratory. It’s an artistic process. You cannot plan things. Jóhann Jóhannsson is one of my favorite composers alive today. He’s a very strong artist. But the movie needed something different, and I needed to go back to something closer to Vangelis. Johan and I decided that I will need to go in another direction—that’s what I will say. I hope I have the chance to work with him again because I think he’s really a fantastic composer."

Darrell reply Replies: 0 || 2017-09-30 12:40:09

It's a 2 disc edition, marked with a number. Only 2049 editions will be released, the one you get will be numebered because of them only being 2049 editions.

Why do people always make such a big deal about the album cover? I heard the same for Dunkirk, Transformers 5, Game of Thrones season 7, etc... literally who cares? As long as the music is quality and the movie is great then I'm more than satisfied.

Obviously, I think that most people prefer to have a release and the music to be great (as well as the movie), but if you can have that with a nice cover art, that's better, but it's not such a big deal to be complaining about.

Paul2017-09-28 00:22:52
This cover without the names of composers somehow implies that it might be one of those releases, full of songs that are not necessarily related to the movie? Just a thought... I hope it will not be like that though.


Mephariel2017-09-28 01:10:43
Could it be they are legally not allowed to put Zimmer and Wallfisch's names in front?


Waymann2017-09-28 08:53:11

Maybe coz the track titles are spoiler-ish.

They dont have to give track titles when they announce a release. Remember Dunkirk, the score was announced in advance but track names arrived on release day!


JBSO992017-09-25 09:28:03
I think this is even more expected than Dunkirk so a score release I think will definitely happen.

And this has been in the hands of Zimmer and Wallfisch for more than two months. GuyS was a different story because Lorne entered the project in the last month before the release.

Still waiting for news. From what I heard, as the film is Alcon / Warner / Sony-Columbia co-production, WaterTower is not releasing the soundtrack, and neither is Sony. Alcon is...

Check the featurette that came out a few days ago, "The World of Blade Runner", in it I think is definitely score material !


...2017-09-23 16:39:56
There's an interview where the director talks about the score being brilliant and he says Walfischs name before Zimmers so we can guess that zimmer being busy with the tour didn't have time to do that much on this score so this will be a mostly wallfish score.

Yeah Hans probably wrote the main ideas and probably a bunch of the big cues but Wallfisch wrote a good chunk of it... :)

Here's the interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBALBRBmDfg

He starts talking about the score, quite passionately, at 05:50:)

Yeah that's probably the case! I think Wallfish is a great composer so I am sure it'll sound great!


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-23 18:06:36
Thanks !

Apparently Hans should be stopped from scoring too many movies and he should let others have it. Let us unite and say #StopHansZimmer

"Let us unite"


lol


Good luck fighting Hollywood ! You'll tell me about it ! lol

I'll quote Daniel Pemberton's Tweet here "It's like some one has taken the Film Score Monthly message board and printed it in a national newspaper.."


Waymann2017-09-19 08:35:25
StopHansZimmer ?? That does also mean stop Lorne Balfe, Benjamin Wallfisch, Steve Jablonksy, Geoff Zanelli, Henry Jackman, Dominic Lewis, etc... They are Hans Zimmer now.



Waymann2017-09-19 10:02:00
Also, even before the score is released for Blade Runner 2049 they all say it's going to be bad because Zimmer is scoring it instead of a composer who, let's be honest never proved he could do a movie with this kind of scale. Let's wait for the score the released maybe it's going to be great.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-19 13:03:01
This is a pretty dumb article. Zimmer isn't who needs to be stopped, it's the Hollywood execs who ask composers to copy him rather than develop their own original voices. We've heard from Steamboy what someone like Jablonsky can do, but 90% of the time when he gets hired it's to be a cheaper version of Zimmer. That's what needs to be stopped, not Zimmer himself.


Peter2017-09-19 14:04:02
Hans delivers, and often goes beyond the directors imagination.
however, a bad movie can't have a very good score.
Give Hans something new, and he will deliver something new.
Successful people are often being ask to repeat their previous succes, limiting their creativity. #stopthestophanszimmerpeople


meta2017-09-19 14:10:05
His music is considered cost-effective and popular for the times...Honestly for Zimmer to go away the times would have to go away. Also factor in progress in technology which is slowly making regular instruments obsolete...


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-19 14:12:05
"a bad movie can't have a very good score."

Bullshit!


Max Potcats2017-09-19 18:59:16
Tron 2.


Macejko2017-09-19 21:08:53
TRON 2 isn't a bad movie by any means, but I digress. I whole-heartedly agree with Edmund here; I could name dozens of bad movies with wonderful scores, and I'd say that the vast majority of them comes related to RCP.


Max Potcats2017-09-19 22:12:29
oh yes! my bad... I understood the opposite of what Edmund was saying...
And, yes, Tron 2 is not such a bad movie (partially thanks to the score :P )


Hans2017-09-20 19:52:29
Daniel Pemberton seems like a twat.


Backbiter2017-09-20 23:36:03
King Arthur is the perfect example. A terrible script but a great score


SPECTER2017-09-22 04:25:12
I thoroughly enjoyed King Arthur. Good acting, Good Story, Incredible Score, perhaps underrated.

Please make this a melodic memorable score. I understand due the context of the film their will most likely be sound design. All I want is one or two beautiful melodical electronic themes like the original Vangelis theme for BR. Hope to hear an epic emotional action sound similar to CHAPPiEs action themes. Please don't make another Dunkirk type score.

The release isn't confirmed yet, but I take my chance !


Mephariel2017-09-14 05:15:33
Hybrid, is Zimmer/Wallfisch actually done with the score or are they still working on it?


Saurabh2017-09-14 05:56:16
Hopefully we'll get some details by next week or so. I'm more curious to see what Wallfisch has done here coz I haven't heard his purely electronic sensibilities (if any).


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-14 18:49:24
I can't say much because I don't know much... I think everyone involved has some crazy NDA so they can't talk about it.

But about what I know, the score has definitely been completed a while back. Hans & Ben started working on somewhere between april & june. Hans was on tour, but he spent his 15 days break in July 100% on it, and probably continued at the end of the tour in august. For the second LA HZ show, Denis Villeneuve was actually there.

So rescore ? Yes definitely... Last min rush job ? Nope.


David2017-09-15 01:44:34
Oh, sh!t! Well that's great to hear! I'm now even more excited for the score! I absolutely cannot wait!

Do you know if JJ is still in there at all??

Ian reply Replies: 3 || 2017-09-14 07:50:41
I *really* hope the inclusion of Wallfisch on this means it doesn't just go in the direction of BvS/Inferno/Dunkirk sound design.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-14 13:13:08
I doubt it. Wallfisch is not a sound design guy, he's more classically inclined. In Dunkirk he was mostly in charge of the Elgar stuff, right?


James2017-09-14 13:53:29
Yes.


JBSO992017-09-14 14:19:49
But the thing that Wallfisch is in this it does not mean that it is goin to be different because he was also in Dunkirk and BvS. Okay, he was more in charge of more melodic parts but that does not mean that there won't be any sound design.

Anyway, I also prefer synths with amore emotional and melodical feel than the sound design, and in this movie fits better the mlodic parts, I think.

There has to be release. Hans Zimmer and epic sci-fi but no release? I can't believe that.

The only thing I can think of is if there are some legal issues with Johannson.


KurosawaFan2017-09-14 05:41:42
so, is Johannson completely out of the picture?! I was SO looking forward to hearing what he'd come-up with...


JBSO992017-09-14 07:07:58
KurosawaFan Johannsson is definitely out of the project, but I'm not sure if Zimmer and Wallfisch will keep some of his score or his themes or if they are restoring completely.
I was also looking forward what he could bring to this movie, but Zimmer and Wallfisch are surely creating an amazing score.
