Probably not. The two are indepedent events.@Edmund<br><br>actually i wasn't interested in the Dragon scores...or Pan, for that matter. Xmen 3 wasn't too bad, but he still had that tight RCP score techniques...Yeah, I think he must have changed his methods since Hancock/Green Zone...Because I'm not interested in hsi work after that. Must be those pesky drums he doesnt use anymore?Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :pPretty sure the reason HGW works with Washington so often is because Tony Scott worked with him so often... :pWait, Meta, you haven't liked Powell since Hancock? This despite putting out his career peak in the How to Train Your Dragon scores? I mean, if there's anything that proves he's got the chops for Star Wars style orchestral and thematic music, it's those two (and X-Men: The Last Stand, and Pan).
Excellent score!  Reminds me of pieces of The Rock, BHD, Drop Zone, stuff from The Pacific.  Great job Andrew!  Nice themes!  Fun RCP stuff!Yes it was announced a while back, Harry returns !I can confirm that he is working on it.I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>
Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.
While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.@superultramega Its funny you should say that about Rogue One because, even though I do like the themes, I will agree that it definitely is weaker than any Star Wars score and seems to lack the life Giacchino normally puts into his music.<br><br>Even weirder, his music for Jupiter Ascending (another big space opera) is far more aggressive and developed, and probably one of his best. It makes me wonder if the Star Wars team wanted the safe route....Ok, not restraint on drums, but I still don't really see how exactly his music for animated films comes even close to being an RC product. When I think of RC I think of the music for the Pirates movies, the early Bay and Bruckheimer films, etc. The work on Shrek, Antz, Ice Age, and How to Train Your Dragon is much closer to a traditional Williams score than any RC product. <br><br>Plus he's working on Star Wars so he's obviously going to try his damnedest to stick to that kind of music, and to avoid the Zimmer style. I just don't understand why you think Powell, of all people is going to be the one to dilute the Star Wars sound. <br><br>Hell, I think Giacchino's score for Rogue One was pretty much nothing more than an unmemorable, and bland version of Star Wars with very little going on besides broken down notes of the Star Wars theme playing and generic Williams copy. Just like Jurassic World. I don't know how Giacchino makes Williams' style bland but he finds a way. At least with Powell we'll get more style and memorability on top of a Williams imitation.Restraint on drums? <br><br>Have you listened to Green Zone? The Bourne movies? Hancock?<br><br>Cmon...Yeah he's not Zimmer, but this isn't a Williams product we are talking about. It's an RC product. This is what I am talking about.

P. S. It will be really cool, if Hybrid Soldier add all booklet credits and suites to new movie soundtracks.

Sweet score. With many highlights. However, little original. It's an interesting work for Ramin, but it's far from being a significant effort in the genre of the fantasy scores.

To be honest this is better than both hurricane heist and Tomb Raider... and possibly Pacific Rim Uprising that comes out next week. We just got 4 major RCP scores and Im kinda underwhelmed with what Ive heard from all four of them, unfortunately.


MrZimmerFan2018-03-09 22:42:42
Pacific Rim comes in two weeks, i think is little too soon for a full opinion. As for this i like it, but not too memorable.


George2018-03-09 23:59:31
Youre right, I shouldnt make a judgment call just yet! Hoping Pacific Rim turns out well, though!

I'm now in my first listen of the score and I gotta say that it has less action tan I expected but that's not a bad thing because instead we have great, beautiful fantasy themes. I specially love tracks like A Wrinkle In Time or Uriel.

Too bad there is only 45 minutes of score...

Well, that is a "girls movie" in the end of day.


Edmund Meinerts2018-03-08 23:49:42
What? Girl's movie? No it's not! It's based on a really well-known novel - I hesitate to say "classic" because I'm not sure it's quite there, but it's damn close.


Olive2018-03-09 00:43:26
Yeah, I know I know.

I refer to the lack of action music claimed by the author of the above post.
This is not a Jean Claude Van Dame movie, it's a movie about teenagers with travels among the space.


JBSO992018-03-09 11:11:52
Olive, I don't know if there is action or not in the movie. I was just saying that there are like two or three action oriented tracks, but maybe in the movie there is more action.

Good to see Sia is contributing a song, :s


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-22 11:09:37
At some point in the next 5 years I think the number of movies with Sia songs will overtake the number of movies without them.


badbu2018-02-22 13:15:50

Anonymous2018-02-22 14:46:53
Instead of concerning ourselves with Sia, we have to be worried about Djawadi. The man has a knick for a simple tv tune. But anything outside of that sounds like a youtube fanvideo. The incidental score for Game of Thrones, especially the wall scenes, is terrible and amateurish.

All I can think is that the producers must have been pressed with time and had to go with the casio synth nonsense Djawadi presented them with. It is the worst example of scoring for a major franchise.

Again, Dwajadi does well with his choral bits but he is not a composer, more a theme tune man. Who Wants to be a Millionare would serve him better than a complex franchise.

Simultaneously, the Paint it Black material from Westworld is outstanding. But was this done by Djawadi or a much more talented orchestrator - can we look into this as it sounds nothing like his work


Macejko2018-02-22 16:16:18
Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?


JBSO992018-02-22 20:09:32
Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.

BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.


Kingfannypack is the Milfcommander2018-02-23 08:08:48
Ummm the entirety of the Game of Thrones soundtracks show that Djawadi has many strengths both as a composer and a "theme man" or whatever. Game of Thrones has a soundtrack that is comparable to that of Lord of the Rings - not as memorable, but both LoTR and GoT have phenomenal soundtracks with memorable themes that describe the worlds depicted in each respective franchise. Each soundtrack has themes depicting different cultures, groups of people, characters or complex ideas. While GoT soundtrack isn't as beloved as the LoTR score, they share those qualities. So no, Djawadi is no weak composer.


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-23 11:48:37
The Game of Thrones scores do have their strengths but they're a long, long, long way from Lord of the Rings...


Balfe2018-02-23 12:15:49
To even compare Djawadi and Shore in complexity is offensive. I presume you haven't actually bothered reading Doug Adams' book on the thematic nuances of The Lord of the Rings? Djawadi employs tiny little nuggets of melody as themes that he recycles verbatim every time. There is no variation.

The Lord of the Rings is based on an extensive amount of thematic development which, absolutely, is missing in Game of Thrones.

Certainly, Shore's work is not as nuanced in development as, let's say, Williams with Star Wars, but to compare his extensively detailed emphatically organic and orchestrally and instrumentally complex work to Djawadi using a cello and a bank of samples is offensive.

Again, some of the choral music is fine but very basic in both harmony and application, and again, let down by the cheapness of the samples underlying them.


Macejko2018-02-23 13:11:20
I love LotR music, but the superior "development" and "complexity" that the buffoon above me is referring to basically translates to "now the theme is being played by six violins instead of seven, because one of the characters just died", which is just super-duper noticeable, if you catch my drift.

In the meantime, Djawadi manages a complete tonal shift from adventurous to dark and ominous (Needle - House of Black and White), from royal and grandious to bloody and brutal (King's Arrival - The Throne Is Mine), and combining the themes in ways Shore hasn't even attempted.

I love these posh music-savvy professionals straight from conservatory in Cocksville, Tennessee, telling us mere peasants that our tastes suck because if you listen very very carefully, you will notice that one of the choir members in O3:47 just scratched his balls, which of course signfies the internal turmoil Frodo is in.

I will say it again - I love LotR music. But thematic nuances my ass. Even intent listeners would miss about 90% of them - so much so they might be on many occassions downright nonexistent - and even if you do notice, the entire experience just boils down to "oh, the theme is now being played slightly differently, I guess that's kinda cool, in a way, maybe". There has never been a radical transformation or combination of themes in a way Djawadi does it. "Playing a more somber version of the Fellowship theme", or whatever else you may say to justify putting Shore on a higher pedestal than Djawadi, simply doesn't cut it. All of it serves just as a pointless piece of trivia, being used by stuck-up smellers of their own farts to appear mighty and knowledgeable.


Anonymous2018-02-23 13:59:23
Marejcko here sounds like a Daily Mail reader off his medication. If you cannot understand the difference between Shore's nuanced approach to orchestal music and Djawadi's instrumental approach, I suppose it is the same as explaining Brexit to a Daily Mail reading ape and someone with an ability to think. Or, to take it from the other perspective, Fox News to anyone with a brain.

By the way, it is not a great argument to say that 90% of listeners will miss the nuances. Most people have better brains than you do - I suppose you support the RNA as well with your level of cognitive ability and intelligence. If you do, you are an inhuman.

LOL at comparing GOT to LOTR. Shore's LOTR is far superior in scope, thematic development, composition, etc. I like GOT, but GOT is not even in the same league.

Why compare GOT & TLOTR in the first place ? They couldn't be more different...

It's like comparing Flash Gordon to Interstellar...

Edmund Meinerts2018-01-31 12:58:13
I hope the movie turns out OK because the book it's based on is wonderful. And Ava DuVernay is an interesting choice of director. But so was Duncan Jones for Warcraft (to keep it in the Djawadi family) and that turned out fairly mediocre, and I can't say that I have high hopes for this.

Also, that poster/album cover is...yuck.
