It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.
Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !

Hybrid, is Zimmer's Scoring the Drive going to be available on itunes/Amazon, etc.?



Mike2018-08-22 05:03:23
Interesting track... Though it kinda just sounds like Hans threw Celebrate the Oscars, Living Football, and the Volvo Prologue into a blender. lol. I think the Volvo V90 Prologue is still the most engaging thing he's done like this.

another imitation game from Zimmer:

the first five notes of this theme (that's the most integral part of the theme anyway) is a DIRECT COPY of Andrew Lockington's Atlantis theme in Journey 2. You can find out here:

### EDITED ###

sad:(


Edmund Meinerts2018-06-11 13:52:09
Ha, I noticed that as well, but I doubt it was intentional. Besides, that Lockington theme itself is kind of reminiscent of Trevor Rabin's National Treasure...Originality is overrated anyways :p


aldan2018-06-12 10:48:47
Well, the link is DELETED why is that? Did i violate something? Is freedom of speech is no longer tolerated here in this site?

Sad :(


Damien, Moderator2018-06-12 20:25:18
Because your link was to a page where is written "I do not own the right of the music". So the guy that did that, did something he is not allowed to and clearly knows it but did it despite all.

I think you gave enough information on the piece you want to speak about for those that want to check to listen it.


Hale2018-06-14 17:56:53
Aldan, what you hear depends of what you love.
Personnaly, I hear the Final Fantasy 7 Main Theme Notes... But the style, the arrangement and this build-up construction is totally Zimmer.

There is some "Celebrate the Oscars" here

Disappointing to see Zimmer write music for such a corrupt organization, but oh well :p


Hybrid Soldier2018-06-09 20:14:41
Oh yeah because film studios are so much better...


lol


Jono662018-06-10 00:43:24
Always love Edmunds comments ! Pointless but yet enjoyable .This theme will be heard and enjoyed by more people than any film score !!!!zimmer is the best


Antonmusix2018-06-10 09:41:58
Been running to this song every morning since it was released .

EPIC EPIC EPIC


superultramegaa2018-06-10 13:24:49
Hey circle jerking bots, this is a discussion forum. Every fucking comment is pointless. This is a place for people to discuss and give opinions. None of this is necessary for society.

By the way Hybrid, do you know how long it's going to take for the new site with accounts to be made? These bots really ruin the discussion and grind every conversation they're in to a halt.

The reason I'm sure they're bots or spam at this point is because they always do nothing but praise Zimmer and Lorne Balfe, no other composer, and half the time their comments are completely unrelated to the discussion. Just a chance to go after only Edmund (for some reason), or praise things with generic comments like "EPIC EPIC EPIC" or "Great to hear big themes".


Backbiter2018-06-10 17:06:48

I never understood the attacks on Edmunds's comments. Is everyone so braindead that they can't conceieve the fact that someone has a different opinion?


Maunsel2018-06-10 18:35:47
Zimmer does FIFA ! WOW now I will watch football
Hope he plays this life on the tour


Medigo2018-06-11 10:12:44
Sometimes a comment is made where I wonder what it even adds.

But Edmund is not really a problem. That 'Lorne bafle' guy on the other hand

Hans Zimmer composer of the Battlafield V??


Mike (OTM)2018-06-10 21:20:38
Same question! Is this confirmed?

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-09 03:11:41
Did Lorne actually co-write this one, or are the credits messed up, like with the Volvo prologue?


Peter2018-06-09 08:26:21
Great to hear big themes again from Zimmer

Ro reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-08 21:55:37
Awesome tune! Hearing HZ on lively, melodic and memorable music is always a treat. It doesn't really have the sort of "sports vibe" that I thought it might have given the title it carries but I absolutely adore how it has me picture "progress" and "achievement" in my head.


Andreas2018-06-09 01:49:26
I love football and love Zimmer.

An amazing piece of music that reflects my passion for the sport

Bravo
