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.

Very exited to hear Ben on Score: The Podcast tomorrow. Hope they'll talk about IT 2 & making Shazam!!!

Having heard the whole album a few times and gone through the process of what Wallfisch tried to do with his music for Shazam, this is not only the best DC album in years, it's also powerful enough to sit alongside (or at least close to) Williams's Superman. This is by and large (unless Hans comes back with a game changer for Dark Phoenix), the winning superhero film score of 2019.

Well played, Wallfisch!


mpolonest123 2019-04-07 02:02:55
It’s excellent in every respect. The orchestrations, mixing, and writing are all fantastic. The album does run a bit long (not a bad thing of course) and there are a lot of action cues piled on top of each other, but with some editing you have 50 minutes of Five-Star material.


Knight2019-04-07 02:16:20
While the score itself is great, I think Ben needs to use somebody like Alan Meyerson to mix his scores. I noticed that on almost every single one of his scores since A Cure for Wellness his mixing/recordings have been a bit shit. The mix problem is EXTREMELY prominent in Serenity, The Darkest Minds, Hellboy, Hostile Planet and to a lesser extent, Shazam and Wellness.
His scores are starting to sound too dry and "synthy" for lack of a better word. Listen to the orchestral recordings in Hostile Planet and Serenity, can anyone honestly tell me that they sound good?
I would love nothing better than to get another score from him on the level of Summer in February, Mully or Gamba cause those sound great.


Edmund Meinerts2019-04-09 17:06:47
Gotta say I somewhat disagree with the lavish praise here. The main theme is fantastic; the melody itself isn't that memorable, but the quality of the orchestral writing surrounding it is high. Indeed, the orchestrations and textures are of a very high standard throughout. However, far from there being 50 minutes of 5* material, I find that outside the suite presentation, the rest of the score feels messy. It's one of those scores that reacts to what's happening onscreen rather than actively driving it, so there are a ton of changes of direction. I feel like you can sort of tell that the director comes from a horror background because there's a lot of that stop-start quality you get from horror scores in the action music here, and I'm not a fan of that philosophy. I much prefer action music to have a more constant pulse while still developing in a dynamic way to match the scene (my perfect example of that balance being the wedding cue from At World's End).

Apparently there was a 3rd score release from Ben this that just flew under the radar. A documentary score no less.

and why isn’t it on here?

The staff here don't seem to care too much as of late about adding new stuff from RCP composers that aren't the big names. Jasha and Atli are still missing their latest efforts, and the new release of one of Mancina's old scores ain't here.


Hybrid Soldier2019-04-07 11:11:24
Probably because it'd be a good time for me to stop H-Z.com after 11 years ?


Knight2019-04-07 14:16:16
Are you stopping upkeep of this website in favor of the new one you mentioned earlier?

A few minutes ago about WaterTower Music release subway chase on YouTube today! It's a cool song.


MG2019-04-02 03:38:08
Sounds fantastic.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 2 || 2019-03-29 02:02:04
That main theme is incredible!

It’s basically a mix of John Williams and Wallfisch, and if the rest of the score is the same quality we might have one of the best scores this year.


Michael Baker2019-03-29 03:59:39
I agree. Great stuff. It's nice to hear some fun superhero bombast every once in a while. If the rest of the score is like the cues we've heard, I'll definitely be getting this one.


mpolonest123 2019-03-30 15:30:14
Does anyone else feel like 2:15-3:00 sounds exactly like Wallfisch’s “flying” music for “Peter Pan”?

Little side note: the minute I heard the song I immediately thought of the main tune from “Islands of Adventure” (Call To Adventure). Great theme if you haven’t had a chance to check it out...

I can't wait for this. After the debacle of JL, The DCEU has got back on track musically with Aquaman serving harmonic and electronic interpolation in spades, and Shazam seems to capitalize on that with a more traditional sound.

MG reply Replies: 2 || 2019-03-29 03:59:17
29 tracks? Woohoo!


Edmund Meinerts2019-03-29 10:47:06
I'd rather have 10 tracks and 70 minutes than 29 tracks and 40 minutes. :p


Iamtommie2019-03-29 13:10:20
It's 1 hour and 13 minutes long
