The FYC came out for this. Unfortunately, it's missing two entire tracks from the film. An extended "Busy, Busy Berk", and the film version of "Furies Captured" (which at least had a YouTube upload of the alternate version). <br><br>Guess we'll have to hope for a complete/recording sessions leak for everything else.Will he come to Sthlm / Gothenburg sweden???https://www.  axs.com/why-we-need-a-chicago-med-soundtrack-album-in-our-li ves-112620<br><br>Why they never release this?!....Omar: Well tried, but Junkie XL was replaced after Snyder was fired and Whedon came in.<br>And just in case Snyder actually wanted another sound, he would just have told Junkie at the beginning instead of firing him after he departed himself :-pCitation needed
Zimmer and Djawadi are nominated for Grammys this year along with Hildur,Alan Silvestri,Marc ShiecmanTom's score for Justice League was basically a mix of Mad Max and Deadpool. Zack wanted to go with a different approach for the score and make it more "fun" than serious. He didn't want a Zimmer sound for the movie.I noticed that the other day as well on IMDB. I know thatís not always reliable, but that would be awesome if he was involved. Iíve missed the ďfunĒ side of Zimmer for awhile. The next couple of years hopefully produce a number of Zimmer classics.Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah.  Whoah. Space Jam2?! You arenít serious.I hope this one will leak very soon! A lot of great music that isnt released
Hybrid, is Zimmer really attached to Space Jam 2?<br><br>Will Hans Zimmer be coming to London in 2021 pls? Thanks MonicaWhy won't concert in Poland?! I love Hans Zimmer and his music and I was really waiting for it!! Last time in Cracow it was the best time ever for me! :(Isn't anyone except me wondering what kind of sound that 2-tone-pattern is? Is that something like ring-modulated strings? Or even FM? Sure it is something layered.Anyone own the 24bit FLAC version? I bought it expecting to here a difference between that and the mp3 version and they kinda sound the same to me. Just curious on if anyone else had the same observation.
Upon revisit, this score is by far the best of the entire Call of Duty franchise. A wonderful main theme, exciting, varied, and climactic action music for the British missions, and a strong amount of atmosphere. <br><br>The only annoying part is the American missions' action music is on-the-nose and terrible until the nuke cue, and there's a little too much reused tracks for my taste.donít worry about it @Eobard <br>With the timing, I wouldíve thought the same if I didnít already know about the brass library :)Well for sure it became the worst timing ever for Tom...<br><br><br>He must be watching twitter sweating right now lol. Totally cornered...@Ahmad well my bad! I didn't know about this. It was just his post came at a time like this so...<br>Sorry guys.@Xavi I know. I also want the  Snyderís cut and JXLís score to be released, but setting up expectations about the score when itís clear that Tomís post has nothing to do it is just kinda unnecessary.

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.


Anonymous2019-08-16 01:06:24
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lol


Anonymous2019-08-16 20:42:11
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.

You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX

Oscarilbo reply Replies: 2 || 2019-07-07 22:11:45
Hybrid or anyone... the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi was or was not composed by Zimmer? Iíve always assumed it was the only melanesian song he actually composed, but reading the new lala land released cdís booklet the author talks about it as if the theme Zimmer used within the context of the movie was only based on that chant and not actually composed by him.

Could anyone clarify this for me? thank you in advance.

Hybrid Soldier2019-07-08 20:16:13
Hmmmm to me there was never a doubt, the melody is from the melanisians, it's a traditional chant (and therefore, melody that goes with it).

The orchestration of it for TTRL was Klaus.


Oscarilbo2019-07-09 19:38:45
Thank you Hybrid. Also I've been years looking for the supposedly "hymn" or traditional folk song Staro's theme is based on so I can listen to it in it's original form, but have never succeeded. Do you happen to know it by any chance?

Thanks so much

StRuPiE reply Replies: 9 || 2019-02-10 00:19:02
Allow me to say a few things about this release. After a first listen, I can confirm that the film version of the taiko's are (still) not used in this set. As I predicted earlier, taiko's in both tracks (March Inland/Attack On The Bivouac) are missing or seriously toned down. So a film mix of both cues, for those in doubt, still not released.

Also, for those wondering what the long version of 'Attack On The Bivouac' is all about, well, it's the longer 'taiko' intro from the sessions combined with a new ending. Before you go all nuts, no it's not the source music, it isn't even Zimmer's high strings that we are so familiar with. It's an unused cue from the sessions (12M39B v.3) that seques into 'JTTL'. It's a nice variation but not quite as good as Ives' source or the strings.

I don't wanna spoil too much, but if you're looking for a complete 'movie experience' score for this film, keep looking elsewhere because you're not going to find it in this set. There's simply too much missing; no film mixes, no source music, different combo's, no Cosmic Beam. It's just so dissapointing if you've waited all those years for a complete version to find out that it's just the score vol II. On the other hand, if you think the OST is good, you'll be in for a treat, there are so many beautiful cues, you'll love it. Still a lot of unused cues though.

I still think it's a missed opportunity. This could have been so much better. It's not bad, but it's just too painful to see that there's so much missing.


HunterTech2019-02-10 06:37:33
Can someone tell me if there's anything actually substantive on its own that's missing? Because so far, I just hear a bunch of people complaining because they can't replicate the film audio 100%, thanks to conscious choices made for a listening experience.

I respect those who admire the music in the form it takes for the finished film, but besides a few exceptions, I never could care for any of it.


Witt2019-02-10 10:07:43
@StRuPiE: how is it possible you've had the chance to hear it? I thought it's going to ship on feb 12th?


Hybrid Soldier2019-02-10 11:24:22
I think you're very harsh to that release, it's rather a blessing they go with what was WRITTEN for the film and not what was edited, remixed & mostly butchered for the film and with source cues...

They've carefully used alternates in the "Film Score" section to not duplicate the content of the CD 3, which was the best idea. Sure, some things are still missing, but let's no be crybabies... :P


StRuPiE2019-02-10 15:06:24
In my opinion, at least the 'Cosmic Beam' cues could have been included. To me that's equally important as Zimmer's score. And it has nothing to do with editing/mixing or whathaveyou, it's just an important element in this score. Almost all action sequences have been edited with that music in mind, so to not have it in this set is just brutal.

Again, this set will be interesting for a general audience that are not familiar with the bootlegs/sessions. For us enthusiasts, it's lacking too much substantial elements, regardless of their presented versions.

I'm sure a proper version will present itself in the near future ... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2019-02-10 15:12:31
Sit Back & Relax is in the set, that's enough...

What, you also wanted 18 min of War Drums ?


StRuPiE2019-02-10 15:29:46
Actually, 'Sit back & Relax' as presented on the OST, is the short version, which is not used in the film. It's the longer version that has portions in the movie. So no, the short version is not enough...

The other Beam track in this set, 'Concerto for Beam' has also small portions in the movie (mainly the beginning) but most of it is unused.

What I want is 30 secs of Taiko's!


BlueLine2019-02-10 20:33:26
Would be nice to see the "Complete Score" Page to this great score! :)


Hybrid Soldier2019-02-11 12:13:00
You've been asking that for years.......


So be it... :o


JamesT2019-02-15 19:13:39
Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes. Nice to finally have all of this music. Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else. I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.

Arturito reply Replies: 20 || 2019-02-05 12:57:32
so dissapointing to see what's on disc 3 and 4. i was really looking forward to hear all the alternate takes and cues, unused tracks which they composed for this movie. there are hours of unused tracks! they could have filled these two discs with those tracks instead of with the material which we already have since 20 years. damn man!

at least i really hope they're offering with "attack on the bivouac" (= journey to the line) the movie version with the dramatic drums and the different ending. that cue is like in interstellar with the docking scene and the missing massive dynamic of the organs. here it is the dramatic drums which gives you even more chills to the cue.

and yeah, glad we've got the other 'leak' with 5,5hours of material, but like i said, missing this especially cue.


Hybrid Soldier2019-02-05 13:00:18
Most of the alternates are basically like a different mix of the same cue, with a layer added or removed, it's not exactly interesting (except maybe for us lol) to just have 3 versions of the same track back to back with slight differences...


mpolonest123 2019-02-05 13:04:46
Yeah, Iím kinda surprised that they didnít do a really comprehensive release for this. Especially you have almost 6 hours worth of stuff.
On the same token, I can imagine why they didnít include the recordings of the the various drums/bowls/gongs. Some of those go on for about 20 minutes at a time.

Happy to see the Melanesian album here though!


Arturito2019-02-05 13:05:54
@hybrid: yeah you're right with saying that it's maybe just interesting for us ^^ so it's not really interesting for the huge market. but while it's limited to only 3000 pieces, i have had hopes that they really trying to reach the more zimmer "hardcore" fans like us or from the movie itself. if they would release a huge number of it, then yeah, i would understand the choice, but like i said with that limited number, they could have done better and release also those unused and alternate tracks :(


Oscarilbo2019-02-05 19:00:26
I'm a huge Zimmer fan since 1994... Saw him in the tour in 2017 and loved it every minute. The Thin Red Line is my favorite score from him. Not just redefined Hollywood film music but my personal life also. This has been a big holy grail form me, a dream come true. I love the presentation, I don't need the "unofficial" tracks, just the official ones. I want to have a chronological experience, relieving the film in my head and heart, but also the original soundtrack was one of my favorite listening experiences hearing it for the first time so of course I love to still have that option REMASTERED.


StRuPiE2019-02-06 11:11:55
I'm afraid LLL's version of 'JTTL' is an exact copy of the sessions, judging from the sample on their site. The taiko's sound exactly the same, toned down all the way. So after all these years, still no film version. And sadly, a lot of cues are missing including source music and Cosmic Beam cues. A missed opportunity in my eyes.


timothy2019-02-06 11:57:17
What a let down this is, if it's true. My goodness, it was the only chance and opportunity to give this masterpiece its justice by releasing the complete stuff. not only the unused and unreleased ones, but also the movie version of it. now you're having the original score, and the opportunity to release the real deal, but noooo, we're releasing again a different version of it and hey, again the original score in disc 3, because of what? not having enough material to fill disc 3? really?! and seriously, i'm not getting the argument that this is interesting just for us. LLL is considered to reach the fews, the small market for enthusiatics and not for the random listener. and with this limited release, you wanted to reach only those ones who are in love with this movie and score since 20 years!!! so don't tell me we've changed the strategy to reach a bigger market with this and miss the opportunity to release again what we already have. you've had space with two more discs to fill the lack, but no you don't want it.

awh man i'm really SO upset. it was the only chance that existed to finally have released what has been written for this majestic movie. and i'm afraid, we'll never ever get such an opportunity again.


Kent ÷berg2019-02-06 12:31:15
This is the complete score. Why do people want to hear unreleased, rejected stuff so much? Also, let's be honest... Hans is a little bit of a mythomaniac and his "I wrote 10 hours of music that didn't even make the movie" is probably greatly exaggerated.


Knight2019-02-06 12:36:32
Because unreleased/film versions of cues are normally better than the ones as presented on album


timothy2019-02-06 13:03:10
we want the unreleased stuff, because it's the first vision of the composer. so if you're releasing the complete and the alternates, you've got both visions of the director and the composer which is a great listening experience.

and as you're talking about the complete score, well yeah, then release the real complete score how it is played in the movie and don't release a different cue like "Attack On The Bivouac" with missing taikos which are important to the dramatic scene and an alternate ending on the cue aswell. so what's the point here to release an alternate cue, which wasn't heard in that form in the movie? and saying no to the real version and also no to other alternates? makes absolutely no sense at all.


StRuPiE2019-02-06 13:13:21
I'm with you timothy. There could have been put a little bit more effort in creating film mixes for these tracks. As it looks, LLL will just release the raw sessions without any meddling. And that's great for a general audience, but not for the enthusiasts. And to be fair, the lack of unreleased/unused tracks is the least of my concern... the lack of source music/beam is a real kick in the face because it's a substantial part of this score.


...2019-02-06 14:36:24
@Kent ÷berg

having actually listened to hours of music written for this film, I can confirm that there really is a lot of material.


Ahmad 2019-02-06 15:39:34
I must watch the film (or just the "Attack On The Bivouac" sequence to see all the fuss about the Taikos. I think the samples sounds different enough from the album version and the drum layer is loud enough IMO). Now what really bothers me is that it probably does not include the string film version of "The Unanswered Question" by Charles Ives which apparently fades in to "Attack On The Bivouac" in the film.

There's an alt track that I most certain is included because the track length and title checks out and I'm very happy because it's incredible.


StRuPiE2019-02-06 16:19:34
@Ahmad, the taiko's are definitely toned down on the OST or any other source available. There's only one exception, my Ultimate edition which has the taiko's slightly amped up in those particular scenes. And you're absolutely right, the crossfade at the end of the track is so much better with 'The Unanswered Question', not that Zimmer's strings are bad, but Ives' cue flows seamlessly, it's so haunting and beautiful at the same time.

I think the alt track will be the same alt track from the sessions, but don't get your hopes up, it's also missing the taiko's. The funny thing is, the fuss started 20 years ago and it's still the same fuss today.


Ahmad 2019-02-06 16:31:27
I'm personally satisfied with what I heard (from the sample of course) but I'm bummed about The Unanswered Question. When I first watched the film, I looked for it immediately but unfortunately the film version is different than what's available.

The alt track I mentioned is actually another cue: Witt Travels (Alternate) (6:43)

If it's the one I think it is, then I'm gonna be very happy.

I guess fans and content producers rarely are on the same page. I don't understand why such things happen but...
This, No Time For Caution (Interstellar). There's always something wrong lol.


Oscarilbo2019-02-06 19:26:20
I don't know what you guys are listening to. I can hear the taikos pretty damn well in those samples, with my headphones. I then listen to the original OST and I can barely noticed them there, even looking for them. But on the samples provided by LaLaLand I can hear them with no problem at all, pretty evidently. Yeah, maybe in the film they are brought up to the front a bit more, but I can bet that's on sound mixer part and no Zimmer nor Malick, which of course ultimately they had no problem with, but it doesn't mean it reflects the original intent.


StRuPiE2019-02-06 22:56:14
Why would you assume I don't know what I'm talking about? In fact, I know for sure that the taiko's are not the same. This is a discussion that's going on and on for years. Sure you can hear hints of the taiko's in the sample, of course that's the work of Lee Scott, the music editor. But the reference that really counts is how they are being used in the film. And clearly that's not how they sound on the OST nor any other source (bootlegs/sessions).


Ahmad2019-02-07 00:01:51
Revisited the scene and yes the Taikos are a bit louder but I still think it's loud enough in the sample. Like you can hear it. It's not buried or anything. Funny thing is that I'm more interested in the church bell sound that is not so present compared to the film version.

I don't know how long JTTL is in the sessions but the length of it in the film is about 11 minutes and LLL's version matches that. So will that version include The Unanswered Question or is that a long shot? Can't wait to find out.


StRuPiE2019-02-07 00:30:49
Well, that's one possibility (but I think they would have credited the source music). Maybe another possibility is that they actually included the solo taiko's that precedes the the cue (runs solo for +-30secs). That's my biggest hope and if that's the case here, well than I take back every word I said about the damn taiko's :) because that means a complete film mix is indeed possible.


Jason2019-02-07 05:51:46
I mean the release seems fine to me


Medigo2019-02-07 10:42:57
These louder drums may simply be another example of post session mix edits like with `No Time for Caution`.

(Some music in the Pirates movies had different mixing as well, like the organs in Davy Jones commanded)

Hello from North Lincolnshire, England and one of Hans Zimmer's many fans over here. I have many of his scores, saw him live in Manchester a few years ago (just an amazing concert) and I must admit, this is one of my favourite of all the Masters scores, but is it worth trying to get this 4 cd set. I have read with interest the comments below. I look forward to any further comments. Thank you
