Lorne Balfe score for Fallout was perfection so would be perfect for a Chris Nolan film. He also has worked with him on Dunkirk and Inception.But I expect and hope Hans is doing the score .If Hans is notworking with Nolan then Lorne Balfe should do it .So... Can it be considered as the second CD? Or something like that?<br>If Nolan is not working with Zimmer, Ludwig Göransson would be a dream choice for me. I really think he is an up and coming composer capable of great things. <br><br>But of course, I rather Nolan stick with Zimmer.Ludwig Göransson
Nolan's movie IT IS CONFIRMED ;)As much as I liked Julyan's work - especially his score for Insomnia, don't think it would work. I mention Lorne because he has worked with Nolan as part of Zimmer's team and his sound is very familiar to Zimmer's. <br><br>Of course, everything is kept under wraps. I personally think Zimmer doesn't want to confirm his involvement so that he doesn't get asked about it. I mean the film starts filming in three months and we only have a date. Hans usually starts very early on Nolan's films that's what surprises me the most, if he really is in the dark with this one.I really can't see Nolan going back to Julyan. The guy's a TV composer at heart. He's not suited for these big epics Nolan keeps making. The last "major" movie he scored was The Cabin the Woods in 2012.Trust me, I hope so !Stay calm folks, the name of the film has not yet been disclosed. When it announced, you see there ''Music by HANS ZIMMER''
To be honest, Dunkirk kind of sounded like Nolan asking Hans to take inspiration from David Julyan anyway. In some ways.If Hans wouldn't score a Nolan project, just expect David Julyan, they are close friends you know...I certainly expect that Hans will score the Nolan movie, but we'll see. It's certainly possible that, like other directors Hans has worked with off and on, Nolan won't choose Zimmer for every project moving forward, but will still collaborate with him again on the right project. We'll see, I guess.To me, Nolan and Zimmer have become inseparable so I'd be really surprised if he doesn't score the film. But if not Zimmer than who? Balfe? :D - Hope I didn't open the floodgates of hell... <br><br>Anyway, super excited and happy that Zimmer is scoring Dune. It was an obvious choice just glad it was confirmed - Would've also liked a collab with Wallfisch since BR2049 is one of my favorite scores.I hope Nolan and Hans haven't had a falling out.... I may not like every single choice they've made, but I always enjoy their collaborations and look forward to them.
Apparently Zimmer didn't have a good time on Dunkirk (according to Nolan himself) but I never got the feeling that they weren't happy in the end about the score.WHAAAAAATTTTTT? Nolan's movie is not confirmed??? But Nolan-Zimmer is the rule, no? But why wouldn't Hans score Nolan's movie? Did something happen between them?Wait wait wait Nolan's movie for Hans is not confirmed... Far from it...This is also releasing in 2020. How many movies are up for release now from 2019-2020, Lion King, Dark Phoenix, Wonder Woman 2, Top Gun - Maverick, SpongeBob, Nolan's movie, this, and that BBC show. We are gonna get so much stuff. I am very excited.YES!!!!!<br><br>So happy that Villeneuve is directing and Zimmer is attached to score. While I know it’s unlikely I hope this score is more than just sound design, there is so much opportunity here to write some kickass music.

Mission Impossible 7 AND 8 has just been announced.

Balfes score for Fallout was the best of the series .Not sure how he beats that’s score


Edmund Meinerts2019-01-15 12:37:32
I'm hoping for the return of Kraemer but that's sure to be an unpopular opinion around here


Martine2019-01-15 17:30:20
From the way the director and editor talks about Balfe and his music On the DVD I doubt they would ever get Kraemer back.Even Cruise has said it’s the best Mission soundtrack they have ever had .

The score to Fallout makes the film which the last time I felt this was Dunkirk.


mpolonest123 2019-01-15 18:04:59
@Edmund Not at all! I think Kraemer’s score honestly is one of the best in the series, especially with the way he approached the material. On the same token though, I am also a massive fan of what Balfe did. A different approach for sure, but it still helped elevate the film much in the way Fury Road’s score did for that film.

Personally though, I feel like bringing a new composer on board to give a different take would be the most ideal, but that’s just me.


Andrew2019-01-15 19:36:07
Rogue Nation was a great soundtrack but Fallout has to be one of the best action scores since The Dark Knight.I hope they keep Balfe on for the next 2 films


Jason2019-01-15 21:05:08
I honestly love stairs and rooftops that track I could listen to that segment from about 3:25-4:20 over and over again. so I hope balfe does it again


Jason2019-01-15 21:05:40
was that segment in any of the bounus tracks? from LALA LAnd.


Peter2019-01-15 22:48:52
Stairs and rooftops is a fantastic track.Does anyone know why Kraemer wasn’t used?


Anonymous2019-01-16 01:00:39
@ Jason Stairs & Rooftops was a standard track not a bonus

@ Peter cruise wanted a different composer and director for every film so they all have a different feel. McQuarrie made history there as the first filmmaker to do 2 M:I films


Quantum2019-01-16 01:10:44
I liked Fallout but Rogue Nation is where it's at. I wish Kraemer could return :/


Moggyman2019-01-16 01:54:01
I think that it's ridiculous that there is going to be a mission impossible 7 & 8. Hopefully, these are going to be the last ones and that they end on a high note. I do want Balfe back if they are going to make these films.


Scorefan2019-01-16 01:58:31
MI5 Rogue Nation was a completely breath of fresh air in the series. Thanks to McQuarry and of course Cruise. But also, Kramer take the music in a new level and for me it's one of the best scores in the series. Balfe elevate the music to the netx level. No one doubt is the best in the series, even Balfe took some motifs from Giacchino's scores. So if Balfe return it would be awesome hear what could be the next level in his music, but if Kramer returns, is sure he will take the music to all new level. One of the things Cruise take care in the series is the music, he has a good ear, so many people were surprised when he choose Balfe to score the film.


AntonFilm2019-01-16 04:44:06
I would rather Balfe do the next Bond.


Jason2019-01-16 08:09:03
I was meaning in addition to stairs and rooftops is there any other segments that play that part


Mephariel2019-01-16 19:13:33
Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations.

I hope they go with someone new.


Mike2019-01-17 01:52:56
I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.


...2019-01-17 07:25:35
Modern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.


Mike2019-01-17 10:13:18
Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star Wars


Edmund Meinerts2019-01-17 11:42:45
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.


rockhound2019-01-17 13:17:49
...but modern


Mephariel2019-01-17 17:04:09
If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.


FilmAndyM2019-01-17 19:28:30
Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.
There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?


HunterTech2019-01-20 11:03:23
Assuming McQ changing up the crew for newer installments applies to the composers too, I'd certainly like to see someone else take the mantle. Would be interesting to see David Arnold tackle a different sort of spy film, or John Ottman taking a stab at it.

Though if anyone were to return, it'll likely be Balfe, just from all the buzz Fallout got. Would love to see Kraemer again, but the supposed BTS issues make that unlikely.

Meistermind reply Replies: 4 || 2019-01-18 00:49:19
Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination.

That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult


Peter2019-01-18 01:17:01
Meistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?

You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.

Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.



Jason2019-01-18 06:16:01
JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHows


Ds2019-01-18 11:02:47
Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.

On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.


HunterTech2019-01-20 10:58:33
You seriously mean to tell me "Light The Fuse" isn't fun or creative in the slightest? Probably is my favorite rendition of theme regarding just the films. III was certainly dull, but GP proved Gia had a voice for the series.

Balfe does do some cool things with The Plot, but I fail to see how his renditions of the main theme add anything new. Even the epic choir gets mostly dialed out in the final film. They're perfectly solid, but nothing that I'd say is great.

In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.
Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.
For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.


BrianK2019-01-17 21:48:29
Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related
Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack

Have any of the slate titles surfaced for this? Would be useful when dividing up that (brilliant!) isolated score into tracks. Got it off iTunes earlier this week and pretty much been on repeat all week, so awesome.


...2018-11-10 11:20:31
What quality does the isolated score from iTunes have?


antovolk2018-11-10 13:55:01
I believe it's stereo at around 160kbps (since it's a stream from iTunes Extras)


Anonymous2018-11-10 15:06:34
ur kidding. is it like the last jedi? why cant it be in surround sound


Ahmad2018-11-10 16:50:02
I wonder what the quality on the disc will be like but definitely not expecting lossless. Three commentaries and the isolated score and language tracks. That's a lot and the movie is not short lol.

In general, I don't think we're missing much to begin with (but it's really cool and should be done more often). There's a cool bit where the "Syndicate" theme was used I think in the film version of "Escape Through Paris" and the album version doesn't have that bit.


antovolk2018-11-10 17:41:38
@Anonymous on the Blu-ray it should have surround sound. Just that it's out on iTunes in Australia already - which is how I got it - and iTunes bonus features are obviously only in stereo.

@Ahmad - the benefit here is really all the film version edits of the cues we already have on the album. And some of them are quite different from the album ones....

I wish Mission Impossible Fallout Blu ray & 4k ultra supposed not come out in December, 4th because it's too long for two months, but November is perfect timing before thanksgiving start. In my opinion is a digital HD should come out early in November, 6th, then Blu ray combo & 4k ultra come out in November, 16th will be a perfect for sale price before black Friday start. I'm can't wait to watch commentary by composer Lorne Balfe by bonus features.

Hey guys, I may be wrong, but I was just re-listening to the score for the umpteenth time and I noticed what may be a callback to M:I-2. Very faintly, on track "The White Widow" at 3:00 in, sounds a lot like the beginning of "Bare Island" from M:I-2. It lasts for about 45 seconds, and I only heard it when I was listening to it a little louder than usual with my noise cancelling headphones.

I liked (not loved) what I heard on the CD, but it was nothing compared to the cinema experience. The score is incredibly tense, louuuuud in the best of ways, and is an absolute delight on picture. Now I understand all the praise Lorne got for it. Totally deserved.

Best score of the franchise, beaten only by HZ's Injection. Kraemer is not far behind, but definitely behind.


SPECTER2018-07-31 02:30:40
was there any material from Hans' MI:2 score reused or referenced in this film. I haven't seen the film yet.


Screenworks2018-07-31 07:52:58
Balfe references Zimmer's "Mombasa" from Inception heavily in "The Exchange". It's practically stolen.


Ds2018-07-31 13:06:36
@Screenworks: Indeed. But given Balfe's involvement on Inception, I wouldn't call that "stolen". If you take money from your own wallet, do you consider yourself as a thief?

@SPECTER: no, no reprisal of HZ material from MI2. However it's heavily influenced by the sound and rythmic pattern of TDKR and Inception.


Edmund Meinerts2018-07-31 13:27:45
I guess it's not stealing (because Balfe's not about to sue himself and Zimmer's not about to sue an employee :p ), but it could still be considered lazy or inflexible. James Horner took plenty of crap over the years for his, shall we say, self-references (rightfully so).


screenworks2018-09-10 08:33:29
Syncopy and WB paid him for the inception score and own the rights, whereas Cruise/Wagner and Paramount paid for the MI score and own those rights. So in a technical sort of way, it's kind of stealing. But it's also art, so there will always be influences.

Just to throw my 2 cents into the ring; just finished the film and was blown away. Easily the best action I’ve seen since Fury Road. And Balfe’s score works incredibly well, just as well as Kraemer’s. This may even be my favorite Lorne Balfe score now.


mpolonest1232018-08-05 02:01:29
One thing I did notice however...

There are ALOT of edits to Balfe score throughout, especially in the opening 15 minutes. Certain pieces are either chopped apart or dialed out. I’m wondering if some of the album cues are made up of smaller cues or were just edited heavily for the film (which isn’t necessarily bad, the silence in certain scenes worked well)

Have you guys been following what's happening with Lorne and @SoundtrackMemes on twitter? That guy has been harassing Lorne since MI:Fallout soundtrack released. I can't believe how patient and restrained Lorne is with that guy. He clearly is an asshole. I would've simply blocked him but Lorne has been completely civil and even invited that guy to the next recording session!!! Lorne gets so much hatred on twitter and yet he always has been gracious in his replies.


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-04 14:25:22
You should listen the interview I put front page of the site. Lorne adresses the "haterz" issue... :)

@Hybrid, Hans was involved in the score? I mean like Score advisor? Thanks


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-01 13:50:59
No, don't think so.

But you never know... Hans didn't get Lorne the job, like it was the case for 13 Hours or Terminator Genysis...

Thanks Hybrid

Balfe has created his best soundtrack yet .

Rogue Nation was amazing but he has beaten it for sure . Balfe for Bond next !!!!


ThePhantasm2018-08-02 07:26:03
Yep same for me, for some reason i can't stop listening to it. My favorites are Free Fall, Escape through Paris, and Stairs and Rooftop. I keep coming back to the score. I hope they keep him for the next one

So Lorne Balfe just sais he's working on a big game this summer that everyone plays i wonder which one it is. Here's a link to the interview it's in the beginning https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=35&v=pITI6Abw_S4

First (awesome) reviews are in:

"Lorne Balfe's sharp reorchestrations of Lalo Schifrin's original themes nicely further the cause throughout"

"similar to much of The Dark Knight’s looming urban warfare, and Lorne Balfe’s score swells and thrums and booms in similarly epic proportions. He’s an acolyte of Nolan familiar Hans Zimmer, a fact you can hear in every chord that approaches “bwaaamp.”"

"pulse-quickening score (reinvented here in brilliant ways by composer Lorne Balfe, with completely surprising instruments and orchestrations that barely allow a moment’s calm"

"We should also take time to single out Lorne Balfe’s monster of a score, which takes Lalo Schifrin’s familiar Mission: Impossible theme and twists it into a cantankerous, thundering backwash that recalls the ominous impact of Hans Zimmer’s work on The Dark Knight. Just how pivotal the music is to Fallout’s suspense shouldn’t be underestimated"

Let's get the hype started!

I really liked the score to Fallout, love the various variations of the MI theme. I really liked Lorne's score to Ghost in the Shell as well. I do have a question what music is played as source music in the Paris club?


Hybrid Soldier2018-07-28 18:21:40
Something Lorne wrote, actually !

Looks like Lorne kept some of Kraemer’s material for this one. Gotta love thematic consistency...


George2018-07-14 04:44:43
The first two tracks are good, then it gets a bit generic for awhile... but once you get to I Am The Storm, the rest of the score is amazing. I love it.


mpolonest1232018-07-14 14:32:26
Initially I was disappointed that the style was a complete 180 from Rogue Nation (which is an incredible score), but I find myself liking the music more and more with each listen. Imagine Fury Road, Inception, and Mission Impossible thrown into a blender and you get this.


mpolonest1232018-07-14 14:33:29
Lorne also uses Saito’s motif from Inception almost verbatim...


isildur2018-07-14 15:35:52
Stairs and Rooftops is kick ass. What are those drums used in this? They are used throughout the score.


mpolonest1232018-07-15 16:26:13
One thing I can definitely say about this is, while the instrumentation sounds synthetic most of the time (something in most Balfe scores) there is more energy in the 95 minutes on album than most action scores nowadays, probably the most since Fury Road.

And of course the “traditionalists” are really hating it, which means it must work wonders in context.


Peter2018-07-15 19:53:51
The purists than keep moaning missing Joe Kramer have not got a clue.they are living in the past and not thinking about the film.Fallout sound big and Epic and watching the HALO jump scene the music works perfectly .The reviewers have raved about the score and the film makers think at the best score from the franchise .


Iamtommie2018-07-15 20:13:34
I think most people listen to this score with a Rogue Nation kind of movie in their heads. But it's a very different kind of movie en the score works perfectly in the movie i.m.o.


mpolonest1232018-07-15 21:12:07
Right, which is why I’m ok with this. Look, I love the score for Rogue Nation as much as everyone else, but I still kept an open mind and was surprised that I enjoyed Fallout as much as I did, regardless of the influences.


Iamtommie2018-07-15 22:46:37
I actually always listen to a new score with an open mind. If I start expecting something and the score doesn't sound like it or doesn't have a certain thing in it I will always be dissappointed. If I don't expect anything and it turns out a score is a dissappointment, it's not such a big deal.

For example:
A lot of people wanted/expected a lot of individual hero themes in Infinity War. I didn't think it was necessary and I'm absolutely in love with the score.

And in the cause of reprising themes from 30+ different character in a score of 2 hours would have been chaos. If you're talking about LOTR and themes, that's different story. Those scores were almost all 3 or 4 hours.

But all and all. I don't think this is a better score than RN, but I don't think it's a bad score. It fits the movie, and I think that's what a score is all about


Marco2018-07-15 23:08:43
None of Kraemer’s music is reused! Thematic consistency says what?


HunterTech2018-07-16 02:54:18
Um.....guys, why are we acting like Kraemer doesn't have the skill to do a different sort of score? I'm fairly positive Jack Reacher doesn't sound anything like RN. Really, the reason he wasn't brought in was because, apparently, McQuarrie was pissed that he was overruled in how he wanted the film to sound, so be deliberately chose not to hire him this time. Purely a thing of spite. And a lot of the disappointment lies in those who normally don't pay attention to film music, which shows just how special that particular score was.

Really, I'm confident that had McQ had his way this time, and with Kraemer on board, he would've made something that did fit the new tone of the film. Composers should be able to challenge themselves to do something that is out of their comfort. Which is likely why a lot of Zimmer scores are the way they are, since he's allowed to differentiate every once and a while.

As is, with this logic, Cruise should not have hired McQ again if he wanted a different kind of movie for Fallout.


antovolk2018-07-16 09:48:01
@HunterTech - McQ said at every opportunity that a condition of his coming back would be making MI Fallout as if a different director was doing it. Which is why he got a new DoP, new composer, new costume designer etc


HunterTech2018-07-16 11:04:50
So.......why not get a new director then? I admire his efforts in trying to attempt something different for every sequel, but he's eventually gonna get tired if he keeps coming back. Plus, there's been evidence that surfaced to suggest that there was a very specific reason in Kraemer not returning, which don't necessarily contradict what McQ is saying here.

Despite all this, I'm very excited for Fallout as a whole. I've been able to enjoy films with disappointing scores before (*cough*BR2049*cough*).


antovolk2018-07-16 14:45:14
@HunterTech - because Cruise and the studio *really* wanted him back after Rogue Nation's success, despite the producers' initial plan for the franchise being to have each entry done by a different director. Hence, McQuarrie's condition that he'll be back as long as he does a completely different film.

And context is important because once you realise the *film itself* is heavily influenced by Nolan with a big dash of Fury Road-esque building action momentum, then the decision to have Balfe on board and the score to sound all Zimmer/RCP as opposed to more symphonic a-la Kraemer/Giacchino makes sense.


Emile 2018-07-16 21:58:28
Balfe haters will hate this !!!

But it’s amazing .

It’s emotional then EPIC!



superultramegaa2018-07-16 22:05:55

For the sake of fairness, I think the admins should delete both the guys spamming the thread with whining, as well as the Balfe-bots spamming the thread with positivity while simultaneously denouncing "haters." (This does not apply to most people in the thread, but you know who I mean.)

This place is not exactly a democracy, if something is not of my liking I get rid of it. Plain & simple.


AndrewP2018-07-17 01:53:18
So if I say I love the score and it’s amazing then I’m a bot !!!!!!!!! What a rediculois theory

...that response only made you look more suspicious, as it was so pre-programmed feeling.


MrZimmerFan2018-07-18 11:22:59
It's the first action score by Balfe i didn't hate this year, thank god!

It's not the best thing in years, but is a fun action score (Free Fall and Escape Through Paris, are good action tracks), plus, altough is 96 minutes, never get bored


MichaelP2018-07-19 23:17:45
I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said no


Mephariel2018-07-20 02:10:39
I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.


ThePhantasm2018-07-20 06:32:49
Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.


George2018-07-20 06:47:42
I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldn’t afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.


mpolonest1232018-07-20 14:25:05
I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same
Chords that Kraemer had used...
My mistake lol

And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do.
That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). It’s fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but don’t criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.


Olive2018-07-21 02:28:17
Badelt's "Solomon"?

This must be the "famous" Dark Knight reference that the "critics" are talking about.

JBSO99 reply Replies: 0 || 2018-07-19 17:13:44
Why is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.

And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring.
And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...
