@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.
Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)
@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>
It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? ThanksIt is somewhat bizarre that you all are thinking directors actually want to work with Junkie. Surely, the only reason anyone hires him is that they want Zimmer who is not available. Yes, some may have heard Mad Max but it would be silly to think anyone actively wants a Junk score.

@hybrid do you have any news about Daniel suett(2014 winner of Hans Zimmer want you..,Savage Kingdom Composer, Oak Island Composer). Why Hans didn't hire him in some of his movie he's a big talent. I love Savage Kingdom soundtrack it's absolutely Zimmer style.

Well I got two tracks from this soundtrack and it sounds as usual like a shit &#128169;.

ThePhantasm 2018-03-01 19:22:14
Haters gonna hate. I think Lorne's gonna give us a good soundtrack

MrZimmerFan2018-03-01 21:33:33
Actually, the first track is quite forgetteable and the second one is the only quite like.

Olive2018-03-01 21:51:27
I will find it!

FaresTdkr2018-03-01 22:06:09
Why just why for god sake Jablonski can give a big addition for this movie just why. Balfe I ask you to give back my money that I spent on theses two tracks...Even Joseph Trapanese can do better on this. Sorry for balfe fans but I'm really disappointed since I love this movie so much.

ThePhantasm 2018-03-01 22:13:01
where are you guys even listening to the samples? lorne hasn't posted anything about it

Olive2018-03-01 23:48:20
Yeah, where?

Andreas2018-03-01 23:52:31
Itís on itunes up for pre order. Digital release is friday 16th

ThePhantasm 2018-03-01 23:53:59
must be in other countries, cause there's nothing here in the iTunes us store

Anything on the release of The Hurricane Heist? Movie looks stupid as hell but Lorne is scoring it...

George2018-03-01 12:53:01
I was wondering that too yesterday, the director posted a video of Lorne's music last summer on Instagram and the music sounded pretty good, so hopefully we get a release!

Iamtommie2018-03-01 13:10:00
Click on details!! All the way at the bottom stands a releasedate. That is on every official release on this page

Anonymous2018-03-01 15:55:37
Why don't they just reuse the score for Geostorm lol

Andreas2018-03-01 23:54:31
They will also release of score for Marcella by Lorne balfe next week.

fs2018-03-03 12:28:47
Compared to the first score it is just generic... like every weekend output from lorne. It always sounds like he has no joy in composing... just spitw out some tracks, which only are accepted because he uses hans powerfull sample library, and job done. I am sure is able to do a lot better

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2018-03-02 06:54:39
The first track just blew me away, very cool and powerful. Between this and Tomb Raider I think March will be a very good month for us!

Fares Tdkr2018-03-02 14:07:18
The First track... Well maybe you mean the first 2 min which sound like jablonski(merlin's Staff from TF5) then start the noise in the second two mins.

Ds2018-03-02 14:29:17
I like the whole track, but what you call "the noise" is actually the part that impressed me the most!

Weird, really weird

that second one, it looks like that some idiot put one tracks two times there so it sounds pretty bad

mpolonest1232018-02-21 17:31:43
Why does Shao Industries sound like CLU from Tron Legacy?

...2018-02-21 17:47:42
This sounds fan made tbh...

MrZimmerFan2018-02-21 17:56:11
Is strange, is fricking strange.

Dosen't sound like a score for a giant monster-robot movie, at all.

Now, i would love hear Paseano or Djawadi

George2018-02-21 18:31:55
Hybrid, do you know if these are legit? Shao Industries sounds okay but the "main title" track sounds... well.. weird, almost like something is wrong with the upload

Georg2018-02-21 18:48:10
If they messed up the upload, then I don't think it would sound quite as strange... the first 20 seconds sound intriguing until the off beat drums come in and it sounds like crap from then on

Iamtommie2018-02-21 19:52:25
I'm sorry to say. But it sounds awful. If the whole score is going to sound like that I won't buy it

Ian2018-02-21 21:36:51
Tracks are gone, so yeah, I'd guess they made a mistake somehow

Max Potcats2018-02-22 10:57:56
Is it real tracks? Because the YT channel deleted the 3 videos... I guess it must be a fake.

MrZimmerFan2018-02-22 11:48:50
I don't think a discography like Milan post fake tracks.

There is must something wrong

Balfe2018-02-22 14:54:09
I would not be surprised if this was done by Balfe finally trying out his real compositional skills outside of him just acting as Hans' copy assistant. Everything that Balfe has done on his own to date is abysmal (okay The Lego Batman movie had some flair but that was probably done by the next generation of assistants).

Please go back to Ironclad and listen to Balfe before he was HBalfe, to hear his skills. Not very good, right? The man is an arranger not a composer.

This score will be utterly crap or it will sound like Tron and Transformers.

Shame as Del Toro and Steven Knight work with real composers like Max Richter who would have excelled here.

rockhound2018-03-01 17:41:11
2 tracks are already available on itunes. on march 9th, there will be also a score release of lornes music for the television series MARCELLA.

Olive reply Replies: 2 || 2018-02-25 21:40:38
Well, the fact that Djawadi was not mentioned in the credits confirms that Balfe had not used the theme written by him, right?

Brian2018-02-25 22:07:55
Olive - wrong.Balfe has said it is used in the film on Twitter.

Olive2018-02-25 22:24:06

ThePhantasm 2018-02-25 18:30:00
Damn the tracks are really short, i was hoping for some long epic music. Hopefully he'll deliver on the epic (I'm sure he will)

Edmund Meinerts2018-02-25 18:40:10
"Shatterdome Attacked", at least we'll get one 7-minute action cue...


ThePhantasm 2018-02-25 19:36:20
yeah that's just one though. We'll see!! no info on a release date, on lornes twitter it says it's coming out very soon.

Edmund Meinerts2018-02-25 20:48:24
A lot of the time when a score's final action/battle sequence is split up among several tracks I edit them together into one track myself in Audacity. The most recent example was Black Panther with "The Great Mound Battle/Glory to Bast/The Jabari, Pt II". And my edit of the final battle music from King Arthur runs nearly 15 minutes. Maybe something similar will be possible for the last few tracks of this score.

I am getting a stronger Power Rangers/Transformers vibe from this cover art than what I recall from the first Pacific Rim movie.

Anonymous2018-02-09 13:10:16
because it's a transformers knockoff

Wasn't John Paesano going to do this? Why he ended up not doing it? I think Balfe is a good choice for this movie but I would have loved to hear Paesano's work on this.

Anyway, I hope Balfe keeps the main theme from the previous movie because it was amazing. I think is one of Djawadi's best themes (at least in movie scores)

Edmund Meinerts2018-02-09 12:27:10
One positive development of the switch from Paesano to Balfe is that I think it's much likelier we hear more of Djawadi's themes from the first Pacific Rim. A fellow RCP member would be more inclined to keep it in the family, so to speak.

MrZimmerFan2018-02-09 12:48:12
Paseano recorded the score last fall in Vienna, the producers dropped out.

As much like Balfe, i would like hear the Paesano's score.© 2001-2017 OST
