This album is the best!! I Love the movie and the music makes it.Does anyone know about the live performance of Fallout ?That makes perfect sense and I fully agree with you :pScience & Religion on the OST is comprised of 4m25a Black Tongue part A and 6m38 God Save Us. Hope this helps!I was never extremely gung ho about any of the films, but I do agree that there feels like a bit of charm was missing from this one. Especially in the tidy way everything wrapped up. I also found the villain to be extremely forgettable, basically a lesser version of Drago. But hey, at least the visuals were great.<br><br>And I do partially agree on the score, although I think it is hard to give a fair opinion until the music has actually been released. But while HTTYD1 has all of the best highlights and HTTYD2 (my personal favorite) has the best narrative development, I feel like this one works as a solid score on it’s own. The weakest of the three but still a pretty good score, if that makes sense.
Can someone please tell me which parts make Science & Religion and the rest of the Original Soundtrack release?I have to say I'm a little bit disappointed, movie wise and score wise. Although it's a very good score, it seems like all the highlights are when old themes come back. I'll definitely have to check it on album to see if this impression holds up, maybe it's only because I'm overly familiar with those themes, and new ones still have to grow on me (like with litterally every Powell release).<br><br>As for the movie, it felt like the charm and beautiful story of #1 have partly been replaced by poor jokes and loads of explosive action. There are moving moments here and there, but overall it left me quite cold.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.<br><br>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.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.<br><br>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.I don't know if it's just me but the music doesn't sound as amazing to me like it did for HTTYD 1 & 2, granted i've only listened to the previews but i did the same for 1 & 2 and it got me hyped. I hope I'm wrong
So having seen the film I can say that this is tonally the most mature score of the series. The old themes all get their moment to shine, but surprisingly are used far less than the previous 2. There also seem to be some temped moments, with one scene using portions of “Battle of the Bewilderbeast” and so on. It will be interesting to see what is missing from the album.<br><br>In terms of new stuff, both “The Hidden World” cue and the “Fury Love Theme” are obviously the standouts. Especially in the way they develop throughout. And without spoiling anything, there are some beautiful choral moments in the last 15 minutes. As for the villain material, there wasn’t really anything distinctive that I picked up, which might change with a few listens.As everyone has said for the billionth time, NO. These are all unofficial fan-made edits or rips.Is this cd of the complete score available for purchase somewhere?I loved it a lot like you and was searching and searching with no result for a long time.... and know what? Did not forget about it UNTIL NOW!!! It was in a change room at my fitness studio when I heard a very faint sound and was tunderstruck!!! The melody I was looking for for so long!!! And Shazam helped me out: it is a song from the christians from 1995 or so, called: Words! You‘re welcome :-)))and tracklist<br><br>Pictures. Visit the official movie website for more information.<br><br>Here’s the album track list:<br><br><br> <br>1. Serenity<br>2. The Beast<br>3. Suit<br>4. Karen<br>5. Baker Dill<br>6. Patrick<br>7. Memory<br>8. Deliver Me From Temptation<br>9. He Wants Justice<br>10. Girl at the Bridge<br>11. I Am the Rules<br>12. Plymouth Island<br>13. I Remember You<br>14. Catch That Fish<br>15. How We See It<br>16. Creator<br>17. Justice<br>18. Alternate Reality<br>19. It’s Dad<br><br>
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.<br><br>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.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>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. <br><br>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<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack

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.

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.

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.

Yeah
