Will there be a Blu-ray release for this as well. I had heard that the Hollywood in Vienna award show that is essentially the same set would get a Blu-ray release.Especially in the first one, there's a ton of LOTR themes needledropped even though Shore wrote original material for those exact scenes that you can hear on the album, and also there are themes used in scenes where they don't belong at all. Oh and the main theme of the first one and a couple of the secondary ones completely disappear from the second and third moviesLot of Mazzaro credits hereJackson use more LOTR music than the original music created for the movie.<br><br>Altough, Watertower releases respect the material written by Shore (as he wanted)Skipped the Hobbit films. How so was the music mistreated in those?
Peej only produced this film, didn't direct it, and also I sorta think he and Howard Shore don't have the warmest of relationships considering the King Kong firing and then the way the music was mistreated in the Hobbit films.Why wouldn't Peter Jackson have Howard Shore score?Both of these redesigns are great!@Everan your cover is really nice, I like it!!Made this one myself, if anyone's interested.<br>https: //www.flickr.com/photos/everan-shepard/ 44212313235
No, just a rip from the film...DOA Dead Or Alive complete score is here on YouTube today!Harry and Harry on the same stage with Lorne was so cool.Wish they would perform more together.It made gaming cool I thoughtFor reals. I felt so bad for Rupert that this was all that was offered to represent his score. looks like someone hustled a quick redesign though https://twitter.com/MikhahThomas/status/1071501461215956992Speaking of bad covers...
I did and it was amazing.Lorne also had other composers from games on stage also.They all looked like they were having fun and Lorne did an amazing montage of the best games .Did anyone watch the games show last night ? Zimmer , Harry Gregson-Williams and Lorne Balfe all performing !!!!!!Grammy nomination!!Saw the film few days ago. Score is one of the best things in the film. Indeed a mix of BvS en Mad Max, only more orchestral.  Can't wait to listen to it again.Main Title is probably 1M01. Hope it helps! =)

Anyone know if Jasha's contributions made it on album?
He's uploaded his additionals to his website but I haven't cross-referenced any with the album. (aside from the main theme)


Mephariel2018-12-03 18:18:11
I always wonder about his contributions. Did he leave Bleeding Fingers or just the project?


Knight2018-12-03 18:36:46
According to Dave and Jacob, the composers for BPII were picked via a raffle, so Jasha was likely only kept on the project due to PEII.

Has the Radiohead-Song "Bloom" with Hans Zimmer been released somewhere in the meanwhile? I just can find the trailer version with background noise and voices


Mephariel2018-06-07 23:15:49
I gave up waiting for it. I think it is never going to be released.

Just finished listening to the whole score. It is mostly fantastic. Epic, powerful, and dynamic.

The main theme not as addicting and powerful as Planet Earth II, but better written, a bit more sophisticated, and just feels right for the subject matter.

Besides that, some of the best cues are the ones with vocals like "Surfing Dolphins," "A Forest Awakens," and "Ducks And Currents."

If you are looking for the more of a Zimmeresque cue, check out "Walrus: The Right Piece of Ice," which reminds me of many Zimmer solemn ending pieces like "Home" from The Lone Ranger.

Just as I suspect, the best Zimmer score this year.


Kekec2017-10-30 15:29:57
How much of it is actually Zinmmer's work? Just the main or end title, or did he compose more tracks this time?


...2017-10-30 16:44:46
He did more this time!


Sektor2018-04-04 02:19:23
Any idea what the deep didgeridoo-like instrument is in A Forest Awakens?

Just finished watching the serie today and I'm really sad since there is alot of great material not released in the soundtrack I wish one day the complete soundtrack released for this " the greatest documentary ever" for me.


badbu2018-02-20 11:15:57
it's always the same with hans ;-)


Oscarilbo2018-02-20 17:48:29
I bought a 2CD version. It's, to my experience, very complete.


rockhound2018-02-20 18:02:34
Planet Earth II has a 2CD release, but Blue Planet II?


Balfe2018-02-23 14:58:22
Some good music here but would be so much better if Zimmer hadn't had to homogenize it all again. He is a shameful corporation.

I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

Beautiful explanation of the development of Ocean Bloom Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIsewG2g-1g

Beautiful score, perfectly fitting. Reminds me a little of 'The Land Before Time' feeling. Really like the theme, subtle but lovely. I also like how there is less tracks and the tracks are longer than PEII with a bit more weight. Too many short cues in the PEII soundtrack to really get into as a whole.


Anonymous2017-11-10 20:05:52
the shorter presentation here was better, surprisingly


Max Potcats2017-11-10 21:59:26
Any news for an official release of the 'Ocean Bloom' song?

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 7 || 2017-10-30 21:44:15
This score, I have to say, moves me more than Planet Earth II did. Planet Earth II really pushed the "let's have an epic theme," which was fine, but said epic theme was kind of...generic. This theme sounds like more thought was put into it, and it sounds like Zimmer had a bit more of an imprint on this score, too. It's nice to hear some unabashedly melodic stuff from him in an era where experimenting with soundscapes seems to have become his thing.*

*yes, I'm waiting for disagreement on that last sentence... ;)


NM2017-10-30 22:11:32
Surfing Dolphins = Celebrate The Oscars v3? lol

This is a really fun, big thoughtful score and the orchestrations are beautiful.


George 2017-10-30 22:58:52
I'm just curious to know just how involved he was this time. He was pretty busy this year so its hard for me to imagine that he had a lot of time to have serious involvement. Although I hope I'm wrong haha, it'd be a nice to get a melodic movie score from him again. This is great!


Mephariel2017-10-31 00:36:15
It is also worth noting that Jasha Klebe wrote additional music for this score.

I think Zimmer did more this time than last time. Last time, it specifically stated that he only did the main theme. But with that said, I have a feeling most of it was him guiding rather than actually writing much.


Mike (OTM)2017-10-31 00:38:25
George, well, he no doubt did "The Blue Planet." (Watch me be wrong...)

He also, at least, co-wrote a track with Radiohead. But notice that, unlike Planet Earth II, it says, "Score by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea, and David Fleming." Planet Earth II had "theme by Hans Zimmer" as a separate heading.


Mephariel2017-10-31 03:55:51
Zimmer definitely wrote "The Blue Planet." In BBC's behind the scenes video, only Zimmer's name was on the cuesheet.


PG2017-10-31 07:27:33
Agreed that this is a lovely score. However, some parts of it sound very Edward Scissorhands to me. The Family Theme in particular.


Marts2017-11-01 04:56:34
Yeah, love hearing some orchestral melodic stuff again - still pretty minimal but I like that. I think the PEII theme fit that perfectly, and this theme does too. Puts you right into the big blue.

It's strange that this isn't on iTunes and Spotify yet, it's supposed to come out today.

Yep, I‘m also waiting....

Apparently it's available on Spotify UK but nowhere else

It's available on iTunes France, now.

90% sure this will be my favorite score with Zimmer's name attached to it this year.

Really looking forward to this! I saw a shared Facebook video from the recording in London and it sounded really nice!
