This is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.Thanks, that's great!!<br><br>Hooe those sessions will be here soon. Still a lot of music music. Would have liked it better if those remixes, were actually score tracks
Mera Montage is the big rock vocal cue used during the Sicily Battle & the Wine scene.<br><br>Home Invasion the opening soldiers barging in to capture Atlanna, as well as a part of the Black Manta / Orm negotiation scene.<br><br>Saving Pops is... the saving pops scene...<br><br>Ahab Wave is the tsunami scene + and when Aquaman arrives to the sub to fight Manta's gang.<br><br>Ask the Sea is when Aquaman refuses to help Manta's dad.<br><br>Olbigation is the soft piece in the plane when Aquaman & Mera talk.<br><br>Dunes is the comedic Dunes slide scene...I just want the Sicily Battle music!Having seen it I can say visually it is incredible, definitely a work of art on that level. What sets it back (for me personally) is the lack of a strong emotional core. The choice to make the animals realistic looks great, but doesn’t have the same range that the hand drawn version had in terms of giving the animals the facial characteristics like the original. Soulless might be kind of harsh, but I didn’t feel anything throughout. Also doing a shot-for-shot remake probably wasn’t the best approach. <br><br>Musically though; this definitely was a great reminder as to why the original score is still a classic. Like everyone has said, it’s a perfect companion piece that actually fixes some minor flaws and fleshes out some ideas much better. Some important cues missing though.“Ask The Sea” <br>Oh please be the cue I want...Deluxe edition releases tomorrow<br>http :// filmmusicreporter .com /2019/07/18/aquaman-deluxe-edition-soundtrack-to-be-released /
Didn't Menken do much the same with Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast? I think the only ones who have been the most original with the scores to these remakes have been Danny Elfman and John Debney.<br><br>My personal view is this serves as a great compliment to the 1994 soundtrack, not an outright replacement. If you combined the two you'd get quite the meaty soundtrack.<br><br>As for the film itself, I highly doubt it will be as 'great' as the original, but that's not to say that it deserves the slating critics have given it either. I personally can't say - I haven't seen it yet.Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.I have to agree. It's a stellar score and I love it, but it was written 25 years ago, nevertheless.<br>Still, credit where credit's due, as you mentioned, the new 'Stampede' is a beast of a track, really added to the original, as well as the 'Battle' cue, awesome stuff for sure. <br>Haven't seen the movie yet, but I really hope it measures up, at least in the same way the score does.Most of it sounds like a high quality youtube remix to me, honestly. it's serviceable but unnecessary.Probably Zimmer, in 1994. It's part of the demoes he included on the Legacy set so I'd say it's a safe bet.
panpipes or flute doesnt matter, i just wondering who composed this :Dhaha that’s true :DWasn't expecting any of that so I'm not disappointed :D <br><br>So apparently this is out as well as The Golden Circle.. listening now. Can’t believe I missed this.And that's why it bugs me so much lol. They're literally the biggest studio out there, so it would've been nice to see them go to the max with this release. Especially since it's one of their most popular IPs if not their most popular IP.

Strange and unexpected collection of additional guys for this score, Jeff Morrow who I associate with Christophe Beck rather than RC and then Kazuma Jinnouchi?! What happened to Jackman's regular dudes like Alex Belcher, Halli Cauthery etc?


Hybrid Soldier2019-07-17 12:30:51
Jeff & Alex & Evan Goldman are regular Jackman team now. Alex scored a bunch of projects, hence his absence here.

Then you have Halli, Anthony Willis or Mounsey doing all sorts of things when available.

Gavin Greenaway is the conductor

Kazuma Jinnouchi helped Jackman, that's a pleasant surprise!


Mephariel2019-07-17 05:47:48
Yep. Jinnouchi is a pretty talented composer.


ThePhantasm2019-07-17 08:06:36
He did a great job with Halo

Composer credits, for those interested.


mpolonest123 2019-07-16 19:25:25
Thanks Hybrid. It’s cool to see that Jackman worked solo on the strongest cues in the score. I wonder why the end credits piece was not included on the album though.


DT-20172019-07-16 23:17:16
Probably because it includes the OG Pokemon theme.

DT-2017 reply Replies: 0 || 2019-05-16 23:03:24
This 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.

Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 9 || 2019-04-19 16:06:45
As someone who grew up with Pokémon as a kid, I am super pumped to see how Jackman approaches this. Seeing how the marketing is skewing to 80’s music (and the visuals have that neon color scheme to match the noir tone) I wonder if this will be either be fully orchestral or synthesizered.


mpolonest123 2019-04-19 16:08:08
And if he will incorporate any music from the show/games....


PikaPika2019-04-19 17:31:04
.....synthesizered


mpolonest123 2019-05-03 07:15:24
So Jackman did end up leaning heavily on the synths for this one.

While there are no standout themes here, I do think it’s a fun little score overall. “Ryme City” particularly sticks out to me as a great throwback type cue.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-06 14:34:04
There is a plenty of interesting synths here, but mostly it's ok.

Far for other works like Kingsman or Jumanji.


mpolonest123 2019-05-06 15:07:23
Jackman is one of those composers who I generally like, but not love. The only scores that he has done that have “wowed” me are both Kingsmans and to a lesser extent; Winter Soldier. (Birth of a Nation is also pretty solid)

Outside of those, most of his music ranges from fun to serviceable imo. He is talented for sure, but I’m still waiting for something else that blows me away.


JBSO992019-05-06 19:37:49
In my opinion, his Kingsman scores, Kick-Ass and his Wreck-It Ralph scores are the few great things I've heard from him, the rest being from good to generic.

I think he really has talent, but not many times is able to show it properly.

And I also think he works better in collaboration scores (like the ones with Matthew Margeson or his contributions to scores like At World's End)


anon2019-05-07 00:10:43
It's amazing how much better everyone magically sounds when working on a Zimmer score ;-).


mpolonest123 2019-05-07 01:21:52
^^ Wreck-it-Ralph, Jumanji, Predator, etc. are all good examples of scores that are enjoyable enough, but never quite impressed me on the same level as some of his peers. To his credit though, Jackman does have a fairly distinctive voice, with a slight hint of Silvestri.

I did forget to mention one of my faves from him, “First Class”.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-07 11:15:21
Jumanji and The Predator, at least for me, are from his best works.

Even First Class, with The Last Stand, my favs for X-Men

According to a friend that listens to EVERYTHING, its a nothingburger.


George2019-05-02 21:59:34
Bummer, I was sorta looking forward to this one. I’ll still give it a listen, but I was hoping this would be another Jackman hit.


T-Mann0362019-05-03 01:39:00
Actually, it's a somethingburger. Most of the tracks have some OK, but very humorous. And one track had me in the feels. Overall, it's an above average soundtrack.
