Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

Just Bought this score. Love it!

I really like the concert version of it in "Wings of a Film".


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:55:18
Yeah! is it better than this one


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:56:19
Although I like the Rain Man version in the film soundtrack better than the on wings of a film one


Mike2013-09-17 01:56:59
I don't know. They're all good. You'd have to hear it for yourself. I do like the 70s/80s rock style electric guitar in the concert version though. Plus the concert version uses real instruments. The score here is just Zimmer working with his synthesizer.

So interesting to hear how Zimmer evolved. His late 80s/early 90s scores were really heavy on the synthesizer, then his mid-90s and early 2000s scores had a lot of big and grand stuff, and then now he's moved away from that into a more "intellectual" style of writing, if you wanna call it that.

Yeah and this was back before he had billions of additional arrangers...

A jazzy , moving soundtrack. Strangely, the limitations of a fully "sampled" orchestration doesn't spoil the "old times "feeling . Superb soundtrack. I still listen to this one very often.

Truly, one of the best early Zimmer soundtracks. The music is very lively and it really moves you. Altough it does not contain many score tracks, it is still very enjoyable. With this soundtrack, Zimmer cemented his position as one of the most promising movie score composers at ter late of the 80's and the beginning of the 90's. The End Titles is the best both score and CD track. I recommend this to every Zimmer fan and soundtrack fan alike.
