Damn Powell is doing a lot of music on his own now a days with not many additional writers. I hope he takes on more project that aren’t just animated. I really miss his music, he’s so ridiculously talented.And even then, people rate before listening to it...The version on this page is actually sound effects-free!Sehr Geehrter Herr Zimmer, du hast viele Fans in Polen. Lassen Sie es uns wissen, wenn Sie nach Polen kommen. Wir haben mehrere Orte, an denen Sie Ihre Arbeit präsentieren können. Sie sind hier herzlich willkommen.<br>-------------------------<br>Dear Mr. Zimmer, you have many fans in Poland. Let us know when you come to Poland. We have several places where you can present your work. You are very welcome here.Credits added !
All sounds really good!<br>Tracks 1, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 16, 19 are wonderful.Macejko: i do tooI for one believe they should not allow user ratings until the album has been released.I really like it! It's like a HTTYD with a twang to it.I do. And other collectors too. LOL.
Felix: some people buy CD-s yet nowadays, some people thinks, if a music is a masterpiece in it's own, then they can appreciate the composer's work with some money, even that money going to the publisherWho needs CDs?? LoLAs far as I know, no.<br><br>Sadly. <br><br>I would love to get my hands on a "clean" version. Love the score!Well ok, but how to get the song itself on physical cd, if its not on this soundtrack. There is now official Single CD yet for the Song ... :/Are there any versions that movie sound effects, such as car noise, have disappeared?
I really hope that for the inevitable sequel they dump the songs and focus a bit more on the actual score. I listened to the album again and there's definitely a lot that they can expand upon. <br><br>Mike Bay (through his movies) is one of the "founders" of the MV/RC sound so it sucks to see him relying on so much freakin' songs nowadays. And it's not only him.....<br><br>That's why themes have disappeared. Composers just don't have the chance to create more.  And I'm sure it's frustrating for them to deal with all of this. So don't blame ONLY the composer when a score doesn't feel satisfying enough. God knows how many other people have a say in all of this...Bay should work with Jerry Bruckheimer again.<br>================<br><br><br>That is something a lot of people are hoping for :)<br><br>The days of The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and Bad Boys 2 were awesome. You saw trailers that simply said "From Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer" and audiences knew exactly what they gonna get. Those were some very exciting days. <br><br>I don't think we will see another Armageddon-sized reunion of Michael and Jerry but hey......at least we have their previous movies to enjoy. I'm grateful for that :) <br><br>P.S. Armageddon NEEDS to be re-released in IMAX 3D. It's the perfect movie for this format.doesn't look like it but per the announcement on 007.com an 'epic sweeping instrumental orchestral version' of it will beWill the Song "No Time to Die" from Billie Eilish on the CD release of this Album?If you care about Ben's work in horror, you gonna like this (the strings and themes sounds mostly like A Cure for Wellness), and lots of abrasive electronics.<br><br>If you don't care, that's other story.

Thank you for posting all these booklets. Do you get the info from CD booklets?


Michael Fields2019-02-09 12:35:19
No, Knight. Usually i watch movies till the credits and find all information in end titles.


Michael Fields2019-02-09 12:36:50
But sometimes i find in Internet booklets of soundtracks. It's really helps!

What's the song in the beginning when they're transporting the black girl to the camp?

That pounding sound of cellos and violins that kick in about 90 seconds into "Escape" is absolutely fantastic. I like it even more once the violins start to overtake the cue a little while later. Had this minute-long passage on repeat like crazy since I discovered it. Sure do hope to hear stuff like this in scores more often.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 6 || 2018-08-03 13:28:17
Meh. It really isn’t a bad score, but it is probably one of the most cliche things I’ve heard in a while. You have the female vocals for the lead (haven’t heard that before) with the same stock action music from every other YA score. Even the main theme sounds vaguely similar to RGW’s Wonder Woman theme.

It’s funny that they apparently use music from Divergent in the film, because much of this sounds like a lesser version. And considering how talented Wallfisch is, I honestly don’t understand why they would hire him to write something like this. #confused


superultramegaa2018-08-03 16:08:02
Yeah, it's probably just the problem with these cookie cutter YA films that all have the same tone and the same theme of "adults just don't understand our struggle, man." To be honest I didn't even like James Newton Howard's Hunger Games scores. I think the blandness of the films just translates over to the music. E

ven something like Ender's Game where you'd think sci fi would give Jablonsky plenty of opportunities, ended up being a combo of bland ambiance and stock Game of Thrones-esque cello music. Wallfisch's score sounds cliched and stock because this movie is probably cliched and stock (judging from the trailers).


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-03 16:12:15
The irony is probably that the score to Divergent, itself, was absolutely butchered & half rejected in the film ! lol


mpolonest1232018-08-03 16:29:02
Lol that really was a crime, JXL’s score for that was probably one of his best.

And wasn’t this directed by the same lady who did KFP2 and 3? Which could explain the temp issues, going by what happened on KFP2...


MrZimmerFan2018-08-03 21:01:34
Actually, I like Ender's Game, even if the main theme is something like Game of Thrones (altough, I think has more in common with the main theme from A Nightmare on Elm Street).

As for The Darkest Minds, if is not of the best works by Wallfisch, i like it, a lot, his more emotional tracks are the best (the action tracks are the expected, but more engaging than the actual kind of stuff of this YA movies), and i have to say, i don't consider Divergent Junkie's best, is kinda enyojable, as for my taste (i prefer The Dark Tower or the recent Tomb Raider, even Black Mass more)


Mephariel2018-08-04 06:02:04
If Tomb Raider is your best work, you are in trouble as a composer.

IMO, Mad Max is by far his best work.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 10:02:12
As for my taste, Mephariel, I have more enjoyement with Tomb Raider than Mad Max, IMO.

Gotham Rogue reply Replies: 1 || 2018-08-03 07:05:46
2 cues from Junkie XL’s Divergent Score are used towards the end of this film. Does stuff like that bother anyone else? It was supposed to be an emotional scene but all I could do was think about how the music was being reused.


...2018-08-03 08:02:00
I’m disappointed that Wallfish wrote a score like this that sounds like Junkie XL

This sounds so disappointing. I didn’t think we’d hear this kind of stuff from Wallfosh who seemed to be such a great writer. This sounds like everything else and not like Wallfish.

One-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!

They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.
