Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt Sprengers
The only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?
Very interesting interview. Thanks man!Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.
No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.Yesssssssssss yessss yesCan't wait for this soundtrack.<br>Just a few days left.Oh. My. Gods. (The old ones and the new.) That's so good news. And I can't wait for sunday.<br><br>The best is, that I can here the soundtrack before I watch the final episode. And I like to hear to a score without knowing wich music belongs to what kind of scene.Yesss. Can't wait!

Henry has this big tendency on every single OST release to remix everything and remove a big deal of electronic layers & percussions (which is a very bad decision in my book, it's like Backdraft OST which has half of HZ's electronics removed)...

Keep the EP of that score, it has the cues "untouched". Have fun comparing them with the final OST tracks, you'll notice all that got removed in the process...


Meta2018-09-29 11:49:09
He took out his electronics? What? That's kinda what made his scores so good....They had a tempo and shit.


Edmund Meinerts2018-09-29 12:11:05
I actually kinda prefer the OST version of the cues for Backdraft...

Has Jackman done that on previous scores? I have to say I never noticed that before.


Hybrid Soldier2018-09-29 12:34:39
Pretty every single OST release since 2014...


John F2018-09-29 16:18:15
Wait Dirty Dozen is only on the EP as well?? Jeez why would they do that?


mpolonest123 2018-09-29 16:54:11
And that’s why you don’t take criticisms to heart. Winter Soldier was a genuinely good score that used its electronics effectively. That would be like Lorne Balfe ditching his writing style because some “purists” got upset at Mission Impossible.


Edmund Meinerts2018-09-29 18:13:16
I highly doubt that has anything to do with it. If anything, the lesson from that should have been "don't leave the best cue off the album" (the Dom Lewis arrangement of the main theme from the end credits)

(also that score is still terrible and the Winter Soldier theme is a disgrace)

Iamtommie reply Replies: 12 || 2018-09-13 18:34:26
I just watched the movie!! I heard a lot of Silvestri & I thought the music was awesome. It's, from what I could hear, in the same scoring style as Kong & Jumanji. I personally, really love his new kind of scoring. Awesome music!


ThePhantasm2018-09-14 06:12:04
Lakeshore records released an EP not an actual album. I'm so pissed. Should of been La-Land records releasing this. the EP literally has no more than 6 mins of music. I was so excited for this score


Mephariel2018-09-14 07:33:50
I just listened to "The Arrival." Awesome track. It totally captures the tone of the original score. I can't wait to hear the rest of the score.


Russel2018-09-14 09:47:42
Yeah, not sure why they're doing this, but a full album is supposedly releasing at the end of this month.

September 27th.


Meta2018-09-26 19:56:59
SO far everything I have heard from the EP pales in comparison to John Debneys efforts in "Predators".

Maybe they haven't released Jackman's insane genius queues yet....Here's hoping.


Anonymous2018-09-26 20:07:16
Remember... Debney's score was critized for be only ''copy and paste'' of the Silvestri's material.

Such underrated score, and The Predator is not exception


MrZimmerFan2018-09-26 20:12:46
Ugh, the last comment was me, i forget put the name in it :)


mpolonest123 2018-09-26 21:40:44
Debney’s score was definitely much more than a rehash of the original, although I can understand some of the criticisms that he didn’t necessarily bring much “new” material to the table. Still a kickass score though.

Based on the EP material it sounds like Jackman is putting more of his voice than what Debney did. And the “Dirty Dozen” material sounds fun, I’m hoping the rest holds up.


MrZimmerFan2018-09-27 11:05:11
When saw the movie the last week (was just fun), and there is a lot of Silvestri's mamerisms, and themes from the original Predator


MrZimmerFan2018-09-27 14:41:49
Out in New Zealand, different cover and posted tracklist

Well, now you can choose the artwork cover :)


mpolonest123 2018-09-28 15:20:30
Just took a listen and I’m liking the end result. It’s as if Jackman took the “flavor” of Alan Silvestri, but still kept his own writing style. I definitely hear a lot of Kong: Skull Island and the Captain America scores. One big surprise is the minimal use of electronics, especially compared to Debney.


Anonymous2018-09-28 20:29:49
@mpolonest123
I won't be surprised if he cut electronic stuff for the album versions. He's been doing that to his albums for almost everything since after Winter Soldier.

While Henry Jackman isn’t my favorite composer out there I’m excited to
hear what he does with this. He’s proven that he can write similar to Silvestri with portions of the Captain America scores, and there is a clip on YouTube which features some of the score. It basically sounds like “Predator” with some electronics overlaid.


ThePhantasm2018-09-08 21:59:50
Yo for real, I've been dying for some info but damn nothing so far. I hope the cover album is good too

HOLY SHIT!!! I just heard the first track from the soundtrack called The Arrival wow just wow. It's a different type of Jackman. Sounds incredible now I'm really hyped. It's on soundcloud if you guys want to hear it as well

I heard the predator will have 16 or 25 tracks in the soundtrack like Logan soundtrack, but that's how Lakeshore Records did like right now. In my opinion, I think the predator 2018 is better fit for La-La Land Records & Var&#232;se Sarabande for limited edition like last time with original predator, predator 2 and predators too.

Mephariel reply Replies: 0 || 2018-09-09 22:00:11
Interesting description of the score:

"A playful score by Henry Jackman (X-Men: First Class) maintains a playful tone while making a few nods to the original."

-Hollywood Reporter

So maybe Silvestri's theme will appear in some capacity. But playful is not how I imagined the score to be. This might be a good thing.

actually i dont like Jackman music, i am played Uncharted 4 his music is not good. He compose legendary game but he doesnt not hard working. I guess he accept the job '' okey lets do something'' and he crap music.. This is my perspective of Henry.
