@Knight<br>Yeah I really canít argue there. As much as I love Mortal Engines even I have to admit that recording was kind of awful, particularly with the studio noise filtering through.Ditto on the recordings, Mortal Engines was awful in this regard with the harsh mix and on top of that, an unforgiveable amount of session noise/chatter.Iíve been giving this score a few more shakes lately, if only to see if my initial opinion had changed. The biggest issue for me is the lack of a strong set of themes. Alitaís Theme, for example, works well enough in context but hasnít really left any impression on me. Mortal Engines has about 7 primary themes, all of which are really strong. <br><br>Where I will praise Tom the most is the recording. Everything sounds crisp and clear, as opposed to his usual overmixed style. Hereís hoping that he sticks with this type of recording from now on. <br>And one other plus, the woodwinds! Itís so refreshing to hear the woodwinds play a prominent role here, especially in the almost classical way they are utilized.It seems the Japanese exclusive tracks are available on deezer, but not on any other platform. And weirdly enough, I couldn't find any download link anywhere.Lieber Herr Zimmer,<br><br>wŁrde Łber Ihre kurze Meldung Łber mein StŁck freuen.<br><br>Liebe GrŁŖe<br>Irakli Shermazanashvili<br><br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-FWQaMm4p8
"BBC Studios has announced that Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe will compose the theme and score for the upcoming BBC Earth natural history series One Planet, Seven Worlds. The show is presented and executive produced by Sir David Attenborough and will reveal how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. Each of the seriesí seven episodes will transport viewers to a single continent and tell the story of its spectacular wildlife and iconic landscapes. Zimmer, Shea and Klebe have previously composed music for BBCís Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II (for Bleeding Fingers Music). One Planet, Seven Worlds will premiere later this year on BBC One in the UK and on BBC America in the U.S."<br><br>From filmmusicreporter.com<br><br>I wonder if its like no way its ever going to be released or there is a small chance we will see it one day.<br><br>Can anyone recall any scores for directors cut being released?Hello!<br>Have you any Informations for a Relaease to "PAGAN PEAK"? German TV Series "Der Pass" from Jacob Shea, Produced by Hans Zimmer?also was really good fantastic score IMHO his best since Mad Max.Just saw the film Music was hitting on point in all the right spots.
Don't know where else to put this... How much music did Hans + co. write for The Last Face? I know the movie flopped so it will probably never get released, but the 15 or so minutes that I've heard between YouTube and Andrew K's soundcloud is really pretty good. It's like Interstellar + The Lion King + Woman in Gold.Dear Hans Zimmer.<br><br>I have no idea if you ever read this, but i just want to thank you for all the amazing music you have create through the years.<br>You are truly a gifted man.<br>I hope you along your life had time to teach young talents so they will be able to create such amazing music as you in the future.<br>I dont know you, but i think you have a love for music and to experiment with music and be the best you can be.<br>I enjoy your music for movies and impressed how you created the music for "interstellar" with old fashion church ovel/pipes.

The BEST cue from Hans since years!!!Whoa, that's right, I forgot a Gladiator sequel was being made. But I feel like something would have to shake Heaven and Earth before Hans worked on a Ridley Scott movie again.

Hats off to Hybrid Soldier dealing with all you ungrateful cancerous rude spammers. This was a good score IMHO, but if you didn't like it then try to give constructive criticism. But I guess acting like an inebriated ape with a laptop is easier

I created a suite of what I believe are the best cues on the album, and attempted to make some interesting variations with the cues themselves in terms of transitions and such. Tracks included are Fallout, The Exchange, Escape Through Paris, Stairs and Rooftops, Free Fall, and Mission: Accomplished. Feel free to check it out, it helps make the whole score feel more melodic in my opinion!

Once again, and not for the first time on this site, I can't help get the feeling that a Lorne Balfe score page is getting brigaded. Seems like every time he puts a new score out, a bunch of people flock to the page with glowingly positive comments (and brooking not even the slightest criticism), frequently from irregular users with very generic names who don't ever post in threads by other composers. And then using weak, tired arguments like "the reviewers love it" (I trust film reviewers on scores about as far as I can throw them) or "Tom Cruise said it's the best" (and since when is Cruise an authority on film scoring?) or "this is a new/modern/DARK M:I movie" (no excuse for a bad score). It feels, quite frankly, like shilling.

Disclaimer: haven't actually heard the score, I'm making no judgment on the music itself here. This is merely an observation of the posting patterns here.


George2018-07-15 22:25:05
No offense, Edmund, but if you havenít listened to it then donít make a judgement call on those of us that like it. Fallout in my opinion is the only really good RCP blockbuster score this year, and Iím going to voice my opinion on that. Pacific Rim, Tomb Raider, wrinkle in time, and Skyscraper have all been disappointments for me so when this surprisingly came out two weeks early, and I surprisingly liked it, then of course Iím going to ďflock overĒ and tell you all about how I feel.

Reviewers liking it is fun for those of us that like it. Tom cruise, who actually IS known to like film scores and has been to concerts for film scores (like Brian Tyler, even though Iím not crazy about him), liking it is also exciting for those of us that like this score and also for us who were excited to hear an updated RCP take on Mission Impossible. I root for all the RCP composers to succeed and create something memorable, and when others seem to like that too then Iím going to comment on it.

Whether it was Lorne Balfe, Henry Jackman, Ramin Djawadi, or Hans himself who scored this I would have been one of the first to tell you all if I liked it. And if I hated it I would also have voiced my disappointment... but simply put I was not disappointed and Iím glad that others are liking it, including reviewers and Tom Cruise.


SamualPF2018-07-15 22:38:25
Edmund ........

Yet again another negative comment about Balfe based on no fact . Sums you up really . The fact Tom Cruise who has produced the franchise has said he thinks is the best means something .we all get it that you donít like his music but simply contain yourself for always wanting to make pointless comments about him .

The reviews have been amazing for he filmmand Balfes scores . This may irritate you but at least watch the film and listen to the score then give a proper opinion.give it a go


Edmund Meinerts2018-07-15 23:23:28
SamualPF - there people go again misconstruing my comments about some of the posters here as negative comments against Balfe or his music. I didn't say anything about the score. But sure, keep pushing that agenda.

George, you make fair, well-articulated points and for what it's worth, I never included you among those who have, shall we say, aroused my suspicions. I'm looking forward to checking out the score for myself and rest assured I'll give it a fair shake when I do. I've liked plenty of Balfe scores in the past, I swear I'm not a hater! :p


Meta2018-07-16 01:02:33
Meh on this one...Listening to it doesn't really do much for me. Maybe because I dont care for Cruise, or MIssion Impossible, or maybe because I already heard better from Inception and Fury Road....


HunterTech2018-07-16 02:28:00
Hot take: Cruise saying that Fallout is the best score in the franchise is the equivalent of Danny Elfman saying there is only one Batman theme. Just marketing tricks to get one more excited.

Me personally, the general M:I sound isn't something I tend to get excited for, though I definitely acknowledge it's objectively well done. With M:I-2 though, while it's technically dated and incredibly cheesy, I admire it for those reasons, and is incredibly fun for me. Not to mention that the Spanish guitar is a lovely touch, and Injection is proof that there is more to Zimmer than some might think.

Balfe as a composer, to me, seems like tbe sort of guy who's told to get synth that fit the film well enough, and call it a day. Sure, there's one or two scores that go above and beyond to actually be something of note, but otherwise he's among the least interesting of the RCP bunch. Feel free to feel however you want, but that's my two cents.

It's frustrating that you have to deal with some of the touchier fans Edmund, but I'll admit that I do get a laugh everytime it happens. I love music, but I don't feel the need to get overly defensive about. I would just enjoy it and leave it like that.


superultramegaa2018-07-16 03:00:18
Y'know, up until recently, I also thought Lorne was one of the least interesting RCP composer next to Junkie XL. Then I listened to Genius: Picasso (because of that one Balfe troll's recommendation interestingly enough), and now I see enormous potential in him. That is one of the most interesting television scores I've heard so far. The orchestrations and overall complexity is an enormous achievement for Lorne and shows that he can do much more than generic sample composition.

I'll probably skip this score because I have no interest in Mission Impossible, but I have a lot more interest in Balfe's career now thanks to his work on Genius: Picasso. If he continues on that level of composing, he may actually get some notoriety.


Mephariel2018-07-16 06:18:28
I can't agree with Genius: Picasso. I like the score, but it doesn't have enough direction. Just a lot of soundscaping. It is like the score is just there.

Balfe has this same problem with a lot of his scores.

I am so tire of people claiming Balfe has potential. It is like a basketball fan constantly claiming that Player X is two years away from being two years away. Every year people say Balfe is going to do something great. I am still waiting for this. That said, I haven't listened to MI:6 yet.

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 6 || 2018-07-14 15:43:00
This is ultimately one of Lorne's greatest film scores since Hans Zimmer's M:I II.


Mike2018-07-14 16:44:08
Have to agree .I saw the movie a couple of days ago and the music is simply perfect. Best movie of the year also.
Balfe has created the best of the mission soundtracks .Tom Cruise sure was right


trent easton navarro2018-07-14 17:30:14
But Lorne had nothing to do with M:i 2, so how can this be his best score since that one?! This makes no sense whatsoever!!


HunterTech2018-07-14 18:01:08
I believe he meant to say series wide, which in his mind, seems to only amount to the RCP entries and nothing else. In which, yeah, I guess Balfe adapted to the modern sound well then.


ThePhantasm2018-07-14 19:12:38
I'm really digging it, i like what he did it felt different just like MI 2 did. I loooooooove Free Fall, escape through paris, stairs and rooftops.


Alex2018-07-14 22:12:58
T-Mann you nailed it !

CAN NOT WAIT to see the film . The fact Tom Cruise says Balfes score is the best in the franshise is a sign.he should know

Thank you, Alex. I appreciate it...

MICK reply Replies: 1 || 2018-07-14 18:45:14
Nah, this is not great at all. Granted, there is some effort here in instrumentation and composition but it is still so cheap and just dull to do anything much. Some of the samples still make this sound like a Randy Edelman score from 1993 (is this what a modern score sounds like)

Cruise must be loosing it if he thinks the propaganda drive to talk up this cheap effort helps the promotion of the film.


T-Mann0362018-07-14 18:59:03
I disagree. Cruise is truthfully being thankful to Balfe's composed work on his picture.

HunterTech reply Replies: 0 || 2018-07-14 18:16:03
Why do I have the feeling that most of the people who say that they think Fallout is the best score haven't actually bothered with the previous ones? I don't mean for all my posts about the score to be so critical, but you mean to tell me that it only took this 20+ year franchise to suddenly have its best music? Like, I can understand if most of the soundtracks for the films don't stick out much as a whole, but they each do at least have their stand out moments. Hell, I feel like Rogue Nation is one of the few modern scores that have actually stuck with people. So I'm a bit peeved by the attitude some have had for a while that Balfe was the *only* guy with dignity to tackle the music of the franchise, when the previous entries were done by very capable people (including Zimmer himself).

However, I should perhaps be fair here. For most of the series, it is reliant on the classic sound of the original series, with 2 being the exception. So to now have an entry that sounds more like the sort of music that a lot of the people on this website listen to would be very exciting. And in that respect, I think that it certainly does its job. Despite my own complaining, I do think it's good to shake things up every once and a while. It's just that I think that for my money, M:I-2 and Rogue Nation certainly did it better.

antovolk reply Replies: 1 || 2018-07-14 12:16:39
people complaining should at least watch the film or understand the context - the movie itself feels very different from Rogue Nation and people weren't kidding about the Fury Road comparisons. A more RCP-sounding take on the material therefore was very well suited


HunterTech2018-07-14 17:10:43
Well, a lot of people here only have the music itself to judge at the moment, so I think it's fair for people to critique it as a stand-alone product.

After having listened to 5 tracks I gotta say I'm disappointed. It is very bland, almost nothing happening in the music. I really hoped he would go all out orchestral here and write a score more along the lines of MI5 but still with a more modern influence.


ThePhantasm2018-07-14 02:03:34
The opening track is nice and then it slows down for a bit, but it really picks up afterwards and I'm really really digging it. For those of you who hate the horn of doom sorry it's there but i don't mind it lol. Also Lorne did a really nice spin on the MI theme he used a masculine as hell choir lol i dig it.

Iamtommie reply Replies: 10 || 2018-07-11 19:12:37
From what I hear in the clips on YouTube the score sounds like elctronics & orchestra together. If it's a combi of MI 4 & 5, I would be happy.


Saurabh2018-07-12 02:40:46
The music in the clips is the typical RCP generic processed sound that everyone lambasts them for. Hope that's not the case throughout for the rest of the duration of the score. Expected something more of a jazz + orchestral sound.


Mephariel2018-07-12 07:06:34
I have zero expectation that this will be an inspired score.


ThePhantasm2018-07-12 07:33:59
Sooooooo safe to say everyone in this site hates Henry Jackman and SPECIALLY Lorne Balfe. I personally liked what i heard, it's very different from a typical MI score. I strongly disliked what Lorne did with Pacific Rim, but MI sounds good. I'm honestly very excited for it


Iamtommie2018-07-12 08:35:28
I have to admit that the last scores if Lorne Balfe have been a bit of a let down for me personally.

But I might be one of the few people who actually love Henry Jackman's score for the Cap films. And I can't stop listening to his most recent way of scoring in Kong & Jumanji. I think that classical but bit electronic style is very good!


MrZimmerFan2018-07-12 11:46:29
The two recent efforts in blockbusters by Balfe or truly awful (Hurricane Heist) or infuriating dissapointing (Pacific Rim Uprising), but when you listen Picasso, are still hope for this year for Balfe.

Jackman would be a cool option (the two Kingsman are fun and terrific enjoyement, and Jumanji and Kong has a cool Silvestri vibe in it, am I of the few who cannot wait for The Predator?


mpolonest1232018-07-12 15:43:01
I really donít get the hate for Lorne. He definitely can be hit or miss (PR: Uprising was horrible) but Iíve seen far more hits from him than misses. Jackman is more of a serviceable type composer, but Iíve enjoyed a good chunk of his scores.

In terms of MI Fallout however, I am disappointed that they are going in a different direction than Rogue Nationís music. That is probably the best music for the franchise so far.


Iamtommie2018-07-12 16:20:56
I too can't wait for The Predator!


George2018-07-12 23:04:00
Lorne did a short Facebook livestream and the guy who was with him, maybe his agent(?), said that last night Tom Cruise went up to Lorne and was gushing about how great the score was and how he thought it was the best of the franchise yet. Who knows how true that is but if true thats a big compliment coming from Tom Cruise, a known fan of film scores in general.


BrianP2018-07-13 11:53:41
George - the person in the clip is Randy Spendlove who is the President of Music for Paramount . The fact Tom Cruise is saying itís the best Mission Impossible score ever is a massive compliment to Balfe .
