Off the top of my head:<br><br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Swimming Lessons<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan<br>The Ring of Fire<br>What Does That Even Mean?<br>Map In A Bottle<br>The Black Manta<br>Trench Engaged<br>Reunited<br>What Could Be Greater Than A King?<br>He Commands The Sea<br>Suited And Booted<br><br>Not sure about Arthur, Between Land And Sea, and He Commands The Sea. I think Arthur may be a suite that includes his main theme, the Atlantis chase, and some action themes. I'd have to listen to the other two tracks again to be sure, but I think He Commands The Sea is near the end.anyone care to take a stab at the chronological trask listing?Yes, both played in the film, and it's sort of a suite: It's split into two in the film, first part sounds close to the opening, the heavy synth part plays in really well when it's used, you'll hear it the moment it starts, no spoilers from me, but it's an awesome sequence.Does the cue "Arthur" play during the film or is it a theme suite?It's confirmed a CD release, but not confirm if is a CD-R
Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris

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.

Mephariel reply Replies: 3 || 2017-10-30 08:33:56
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.

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 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!
