Right. The difference between Zimmer and many other composers (for me at least) is that you can almost immediately tell if you like a Zimmer score off the bat. DMTNT is something that needs a few listens to grow on you, and so far I'm liking what I hear.<br><br>When I heard Fantastic Beasts for the first time I was initially disappointed but after about 3 listens and hearing it in context it became my favorite score of the year. Everyone is different of course, but I feel like this score will grow on people with time.Well... as you say, Zanelli's tunes tend to be less streamlined. You can hear it in his themes for Into the West, The Pacific, Outlander (the movie) and even the Spaniards themes in OST. <br><br>Not to say Zimmer's aren't great in their own merit, but are not always the same exact approach.For everyone complaining about the mix of this album don't forget, nothing beats Curse of the Black Pearl in terms of an awful recording mix. When you have a 'synthy' sounding orchestra and bass gain distortions that actually make it to album this really isn't anything in comparison.<br><br>And I think the key difference between Zimmer and Zanelli (at least on this franchises' terms) is that most of the themes Zimmer wrote for the franchise (Davy Jones, Beckett, Kraken, pretty much all of the original tunes from the 1st one, etc.) were actually incredibly simplistic. Geoff's tunes are less streamlined. They aren't bad by any means, but it's telling when the strongest parts are the reprises of things like Hoist the Colours and Marry Me."How did they manage to make a 100 piece orchestra sound like a demo for an off the shelf sample library?"<br><br>MV/RC has existed for over two decades now and you're actually still surprised at this? XDfinal veredict?
Oh dear . Where is the theme ?Comes across very likeable and enthusiastic.Now I'm even more excited!I'm on track 9 at the moment. Nothing especially memorable so far, but I do love the return of the Love Theme and Hoist the Colors.<br><br>Salazar's theme isn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it does seem to get repetative quickly. Hopefully the score isn't as blatantly bad on-screen as OST was. That film and score was a mess.Cool insight on POTC 5 !
Now that the album is out there I can easily say that I love this score. Definitely my 2nd favorite behind MoS. <br><br>Musically, much of it has that "Last Samurai/Transformers" power anthem style (with one of the themes sounding like King Arthur) but with RGW's string writing style as opposed to the bass heavy approach of those scores. The WW cello theme isn't used a whole lot, but when it gets some screen time it feels earned, and steals the show. The villain material is the weakest part, but instrumentally is pretty cool with the incorporation of the cimbalom (it reminds me slightly of Sherlock at points)<br><br>Overall, easily one of the best scores so far this year.Hans has not done this one because he was working on dunkirk at the time as far as I know. I saw the movie last night and for sure things like "What shall we die for", "One day", "Jack Sparrow", the legendary "He's a pirate" or even the bit of the musical clock/bell theme from davy jones and Calypso at the VERY end of the film are things that Hans wrote of course. In the movie itself you hear this stuff very often especially in the first hour of the movie which is packed with old themes. But Geoff Zanelli still wrote the other 60%/65% of the music so I can imagine that Hans said that they can give it to Zanelli because even if most of the themes are from Hans, he was most likely not heavily involved at the writing and scoring process. He was most likely there at the beginning of the process like Zanelli said in an interview and made sure that this story needed things like one day or the medallion calls. And he is not credited because of the fact that he was doing dunkirk and for sure his live tour and so he was like mentioned before only there at the beginning of the process and wrote/refined the new versions of one day or he's a pirate if he did anything. But i thought as well that they could have mentioned him in the credits like they mentioned Zanelly or even Steve Jablonsky in the credits of the first one or John Williams at Rogue One.I missed that, sorry! I agree with your other comment.<br><br>Jackman's contribution to the 2nd half of love suite, his rollicking orchestral mayhem in "I don't know if now is the best time" provide plenty of evidence of him imposing his style effectively on the material. <br>"Going back to ground 0" doesn't mean "make a poor movie".<br>I would like more Pirates movies, but not if they make them as bad as the 4th and 5th ones. They could have written an original story (I'm sure there are good writers out there who could have found something fresh) and started a new adventure just like the 2nd and 3rd movies did. It's not impossible.<br>But rather they just tried to remake the 1st movie. If they did it for the 5th one, why do you think they wouldn't do it for the 6th one? Judging by the post-credit scene, they are clearly not afraid of ripping off the previous movies even more... :-DHi Hans!<br><br>Your scores helped me pass through difficult times, in life.<br>Never heard music that touches me so deep inside.<br>Thanks - to you and your Team - and go on like this.<br>When do you come to Germany with your Team (live in concert)?<br><br>If you like to answer: atlantis42195@gmail.com<br>------------------------------------------<br>Hallo Hans!<br><br>Ein dickes Lob an Sie und Ihr Team.<br>Ihre Musik half mir, durch schwere Zeiten im Leben zu kommen.<br>Nie zuvor kannte ich Musik, welche mich derart berührt.<br>Wann kommen Sie wieder nach Deutschland, mit Ihrem Team?<br><br>Weiter so und beste Grüße, aus Düsseldorf!<br>Falls Sie antworten möchten:atlantis42195@gmail.com<br><br>Jill W.<br>
Yeah... I know what you mean...<br><br>First of all, I want this movie to be a fun ride. I cannot ask of it what I would ask of a Nolan production, for once. But I know I cannot ask of this movie what I would ask of a 2nd or a 3rd part. I say this because since DMTNT begins production they (producers) hinted it was the BEGINNING of a new adventure, So they had to go back to "ground 0". And is not too difficult to guess that they'd try the Star Wars formula; POTC 5 is basically Force Awakens in its intentions at the least.<br><br>So what really put me off is the fact that all this hate will only cause to not greenlit more adventures :( , because, well.. apparently audience doesn't want this dessert anymore.If that cheesy ending was "so so cool", it's just because it's a powerful reminder of how beautiful the 3rd movie was. And even more so in comparison to this dreadful 5th outing.Yeah I made a shitty suite ! :( :( :( lolLots of people complaining about the film and the score, makes me a little bit irritated. Of course this was never gonna reach the level of the first films. It never will be, it's been 10 years. I am a hugh fan of these films and after watching the new film I felt so good. That cheesy ending was actually so so cool. The movie wasn't perfect put they did some good things in it. I haven't heard this album yet but I listened to the samples and everything I wanted on this album, I did hear those parts in the samples. Afterwards I was humming that new adventure theme all day, even how unoriginal it is. It's cool and Carina's theme is a great new addition. This score is much than On Stranger Tides maybe think about that. Let this score grow on you. Most people now base their opinion on just this suite. Honestly ? It doens't reflect the score that well.I have yet to listen to the score, and I will after see the movie because I want to experience it on the movie itself first.<br><br>But if you read the very insightful interview with Zanelli for filmmusicamg, he talks about the "differences" between composers at RCP, and when Zimmer liked something of Zenelli its because, in Zimmer's words "it sounds so Geoff" (I think he was racalling it about Tia Dalma's theme and the tribal island music from DMC). So I think is kind of unfair to expect Geoff's music to sound very Zimmer's, realistically speaking. <br><br>I've been listening Zanelli's scores a few years now, and I think I Identify his style and his type os themes, which are not like Zimmer`s at all (talking about notes specifically)... so based on his scores I expect this to be a very Geoff Zanelli score leaning to POTC style and just a little of Zimmer.<br><br>You can see the differences in the OST album, just listen on what Zimmer composed and the listen the Spaniard's theme, which is by Zanelli.

I yust realized that alan silvestri or zemeckis used the end of let my home be my gallows in beowulf. anybody knows what the fuck happened? because if you watch the end credits, there's absolutely nothing there about this. no special thanks to HZ. no let my home be my gallows is from hannibal. nothing...
also beowulf is WB and paramount, hannibal is universal...

This score is one of the best of Hans by far, yet so underrated !


trent easton navarro2014-10-11 20:04:45
I hope La La Land or Intrada will release an expanded version of this one. And indeed without the voice-over. While I think it works somewhat on Dear Clarice it's annoying as hell on Let My Home Be My Gallows

A great score, a different horror style, than hides the evil behind beutiful and elegant melodies, that way is more sinister without stop to be wonderful. The best way to define Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Hans Zimmer and their pleople did it, a score may make you feel terrified and marveled in same time

I'd love to see a complete score for this. Pazzi theme is lovely.
Everyone seems hopeful for another recording sessions leak of some other film. I of course just want to see Hannibal and Inception, but alas I'm just another beggar alone in his quest for these holy grails.


Takehiro2011-07-27 03:35:09
You're not alone bud, I want this too :)

From all the "expandeds" out there, which is best in terms of content?


uga2011-07-27 06:40:21
I would use the ost and the bonus tracks from magic music box and klaus badelt (in terms of sfx free).


Kusi2011-07-27 11:26:53
Magic Box Music did compose music for Hannibal? I don't see any tracks from them on their site..


Dawn2011-07-27 11:30:39
I don't think magicbox music ever composed cues for Hannibal...

Klaus Badelt cues are all heard in the official soundtrack CD (fully developped).

But Geoff Zanelli's website contains at least 2 or 3 unreleased cues, and there's a Steve Jablonsky promo with one unreleased cue.


Anonymous2011-07-27 22:19:50
Whats the name of the SJ promo??


uga2011-07-27 22:30:58
I'm sorry, I didn't mean magic music box, I meant geoff zanelli's website. my mistake


Dakota2011-07-27 22:33:26
I don't think it's a Jablonsky promo. If it is what I'm thinking of, then it's the 2-disc expanded score. It's a 9 minute piece called "Adagio"


Dawn2011-07-28 10:26:59
There are no "2CD expanded promo" for Hannibal. I mean, of course, there are a lot of fanmade "promos" around, but they are... fanmade.

I know both movie and score by heart, and I can confirm that all those "expanded editions" are fake. They combine music from the OST with another source that has nothing to do with Hannibal. Many years ago, some guys claimed to have an expanded score with some "Steve Jablonsky's rejected/alternate music" but the cues had nothing to do with the movie, and furthermore, they even had nothing to do with Jablonsky...

Dakota, getting unreleased music is always fun, but I think you should at least verify the new music is actually in the movie (or composed for it)... I don't see the point in collecting extended scores if you don't even know what's on them. Hannibal is all about those impatient guys that are ready to put pointless things on a CD in order to claim "I have more music". Adagio has nothing to do with the film score, nothing to do with SJ, nothing to do with any part of Zimmer's working process. It's like adding some Winnie the Pooh music in the middle of Steamboy and claiming it's expanded ! The SJ cue I was refering to, originally, is named "Lecter Kidnapped".

Trust me, film music promos from Geoff Zanelli, Steve Jablonsky and Klaus Badelt are the only sources that contain REAL HANNIBAL UNRELEASED MUSIC. Although all the music from Badelt is already featured on the OST.

Anonymous, minimum service would be at least to pick a name before asking questions here. About the promo, it was called SJ Film Music...


Dakota2011-07-29 03:21:13
Dawn, I never said I even have that. I've never seen Hannibal, I don't have the soundtrack, and therefore I have no idea what music is on it, or what it even sounds like. This cue you mentioned I thought might have possibly been that 9 minute track. I was just trying to help. Scores I do collect I have usually seen the film to, therefore knowing what music belongs on it or not.
