Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

The only credit that I've found for Stephanie on this one is Shark Cage. It's literally the only cue with her name on it on both BMI and GEMA.

Epic score by Harry Gregson Williams.One of my favorites this year.

Iamtommie reply Replies: 3 || 2018-08-23 00:43:18
Gregson-Williams is scoring the live action Mulan.
Hope we'll get a chinese Narnia with maybe the theme from Goldsmith.


Mephariel2018-08-23 02:00:53
A Chinese version of Narnia + Kingdom of Heaven + Some of his animated scores.

I would be very happy.

What has happened to HGW?? :((

Back then in 1998, along with John Powell, we saw them both as promising talents, destined to be one of the best in term of crafting ABOVE-STANDARD-TO-MASTERPIECE music and melody.

And in early 2000, we saw a separation. Powell for the most part wisely chose the animation realm, while HGW chose live-action instead.

Both of them succeeded in delivering the job. Powell is at his strongest and i'm not forgeting HGW with his Kingdom of Heaven and Narnia!

Entering 2010, we saw a decline for both. A little one for Powell, as he would prepare himself for his first sabbatical. But before that, Powell has delivered a masterpiece in film score history with his HTTYD in 2010. In the same year, i would also like to not disregard HGW's Prince of Persia.

Going past 2010, but before 2014/2015, we saw them quite at the bottom. Powell was really pissed about film scoring, while HGW was not neccessarily at the bottom, but his spark started to fade.

Entering 2015, they both rose again. Powell was getting more and more advanced, but i think the same couldnt be said with HGW, as he just rose a bit ( i like his monkey kingdom score though).

Before we enter 2020, we see Powell's force really shone. He is more creative than ever, trying many things that he suits, getting gig that no one here would even dare to expect ( Star Wars ehem )

Powell, until now, still CONSISTENTLY crafts REALLY-GOOD TO-MASTERPIECE music and melody.

Now HGW,...
He still gets movies to write,small ones though, not so much blockbuster-adventury.

And that what makes him declining in the first place.

Powell's decision to tackle more on animations, gives him many great sandboxes to play, everytime, thus really mastering his skill. Smart!

While HGW's false decision to chose blockbuster live-action movies instead, makes him vulnerable to "decaying". And it looks like he is not that kind of person who would push harder to keep his spark, thus he has became one of the "generics". Sparkless.

But still, Andrew Lockington has managed to take that title faster than HGW

-----------------

Now The MEG:

For every track i played, i always wished for that unique 90s MV power anthem to really pop, but unfortunately i couldnt find one. And dont get me started on the action music.( But yes, i hear some decent themes buried here and there. And a rather generic genre music in "A New World".)

And i skimmed through last tracks, prepared to end this as another disappointment for HGW, i found a nice power anthem being displayed in "To Our Friends" (itself can also be regarded as variation of his Prometheus theme), but only the first half, sadly. :(

Another disappointment for HGW.

----

Even when he was given a good sandbox such as this, he couldnt really turn his spark on again. He couldnt find the word "fun" in his job anymore. (And Early Man could also be another good example for this issue)

Sad for HGW.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 17:58:45
I think you mistake The Meg with The Equalizer 2

IMO


Ro2018-08-04 21:47:35
I agree that HGW doesn't seem to pour much enthusiasm into his works lately but quite frankly I don't think the projects themselves were calling for something special either. To me, Martian was proof enough that HGW's still got it cracking. He just needs the right gig. I see the live action adaption of Mulan is being helmed by the director of Zookeeper's Wife which he previously scored. That's about the right sort of stuff to get his engines lit.


Olive2018-08-05 01:10:45
Probably family. HGW has had three children in the last decade.


Meta2018-08-05 04:26:20
Yep. I stopped listening to Powell after Bourne Ultimatum/Hancock years, then picked him up again for Star Wars. Big difference, cuz i found his other works to be lackluster for me.

HGW? Oh Lordy....Man On Fire/Domino for me was his final era to shine. Then he just went downhill...Equalizer seemed to bring back that HGW I loved since Man on Fire, but Equalizer 2 sounds like he phoned it in. Meg? It sounds like he was more interested in doing this score than EQ2, and that's not even sayinfg much because this score is vanilla.


Edmund Meinerts2018-08-05 12:19:15
You're missing a lot of really great music in those intervening 10 years of Powell's career, Meta...HTTYD is anything but lackluster!

A enjoyable score actually. Wish it has a main theme rather than just melodic undertones. But definitely has some great action scoring near the end of the score.

I really like this score which Gregson-Williams wrote.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 10:06:35
One of the most enjoyable scores of this year.

Harry Gregson-Williams in his top noch form (ok, is not Sinbad, right?), but the two main themes and the fun with the action and more epic (the beautiful A New World, for example) or the more action packed tracks like the terrific Jonas vs Meg (the brass writing is terrific) or Beach Attack (that chinese percussion are epic), also the main theme for the human characters, gave a sense of adventure i thought never listen again.
