I wonder, does steam spew out of your ears and nose whenever Lorne releases a new score?Is there any word or time frame on the second release?.So, not expecting anything great with Dune. Just as long as it's not Balfe, the most banal, ad-man, jingle-happy nobody from HZ's works. The guy is a fucking advertisement agency. Bad Jingles. Superficial shit.Hans is apparently composing Villeneuve's Dune. Let's hope he makes some effort for that one. The guy is getting old and complacent, and soon his time will fall. Luckily, when Hans falls any respect for twat-os like Balfe, no talent coffee boys, will disappear. <br><br>Jablonsky and Powell, real people with talent, will be further engaged.Jenny of Oldstones was an old song in Westeros about a common woman named Jenny of Oldstones, a strange woman who a Targaryen prince rejected his claim to the throne to be with. Before a big battle, a character sings this song and a montage of the various characters plays as they prepare for battle. So that is the melody. The lyrics go like this:<br><br>High in the halls of the kings who are gone,<br>Jenny would dance with her ghosts; <br>The ones she had lost and the ones she had found<br>The ones who had loved her the most;<br>the ones who've been gone for so very long, she couldn't remember their names<br>they spun her around on the damp old stone<br>Spun away all her sorrow and pain.<br>And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.<br><br>They danced through the day and into the night<br>Through the snow that swept through the hall<br>From winter to summer and winter again<br>Till the walls did crumble and fall<br>And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.<br>
Hybrid, please update this list. Is it possible that you could include the alternate/album version of Main On Ends (AKA Taking A Stand)?COMPLETE SCORES ARE AWESOMECareful, talking about complete scores or recording sessions can get your comment removed now.No more superhero film score for me, he said .... :DThe complete score is so amazing!! I saw on YouTube too.
CD RELEASE????PosiblyA surprise reference to be sure, but a welcome one.The same thing happened to me George@Michael Baker - I can’t be the only one who read that as Han Solo right?
Yeah... Wait till CD 2 and I'm sure we'll get a much stronger idea of what's solo Hans in here.@Edmund<br>I wonder if this is one of those situations where the material in film is derived heavily from the suites, with everyone either arranging it or adding elements onto it. Just guessing of course, I’m sure we’ll get a clear picture once the bonus stuff gets released.<br><br>And apparently there is about 16 hours of music “lying around”, going off of what Hans mentioned in the Vi-Control forums."heavily influenced" indeed :D <br>I really love Amity and I love how the theme appears in several other cues:<br>Reckless which features an epic/action rendition <br>Insertion = a short quote at the beginning <br>Coda = another call back to the theme<br><br>Been listening to the score since I saw the film. Love it. Eagerly waiting for CD2. I wonder if it includes an extended version of the last 2 minutes of Insertion - INCREDIBLE.I guess I should know better at this point but I'm still a little disappointed that there are no solo Hans cues. Although I suppose there could be some hidden inside the longer album tracks.Because it's heavily influenced by Henry Purcell, that's what Hans said :<br><br>"Dark Phoenix is all Henry Purcell... I felt the last few bars of “Dido’s Lament” with the endlessly descending line and the “Remember Me” perfect for the characters... less the tune, more the harmonic movement"

Finally having a full listening session to the OST release after having watched the movie.
I'm quite pleased with what has been done. Hans and co. served the movie at his best. The dynamic of the composition fits perfectly the movies, as that's what its role is.
Again, I just wish the soundtrack was considered a bit more in the mixing stage in the movie; it felt really far and not completely blended with the pictures by my opinion (I'm a sound engineer). Any technical opinion on this matter?

Finally able to listen, woo!! Everyone keeps comparing it to Interstellar, but I'm actually hearing quite a bit of Dark Knight as well at times.

And "Gap" totally lives up to the hype. Really looking forward to finally getting to listen to the full version of "Deletion".


MrZimmerFan2019-06-06 18:55:52
Vibes from Interstellar, guitar riffs from TASM2, and the ACTION and EPIC from the 90s MV (specially, Crimson Tide)

Goosh, i have such an emotion with the ten minutes of Intimate


2019-06-06 19:04:06
You guys are killing me! Honestly cannot wait to listen to this. Glad to know this has seemingly lived up to the hype (Yet I still need to listen)

Its on YouTube.


Joshua2019-06-06 19:37:31
This score is basically if MoS, TASM2, Inferno and Dunkirk had a baby. All in a good way. And "Coda" has a nice "Time' vibe to it.

Everybody's talking about 'Gap' or 'Deletion'. But I can't stop listening to 'Insertion'. This is an action cue from Zimmer that I was waiting for, for quite a long time. The synths, percussion, orchestra & choir all fit perfectly. This a a cue I won't easily forget.

And overall the score in my opinion is amazing. Zimmer does things with the choir that I haven't heard anyone do before. It's amazing how he keeps suprising me.

I have loved every Zimmer score, even in the period when a lot of others have not. Zimmer is and always will be my favorite composer. I can't thank him enough for how he changed my life with his music.

Zimmer you're the best! Thank you so very much!!!!!

Michael Baker reply Replies: 0 || 2019-06-06 17:05:26
Pleasantly surprised with this score, to be honest. It sounds like Interstellar reimagined in the Dunkirk style. The Dunkirk, synthy aggressive style seems to have made its mark on a lot of Hans' scores lately.

Kenji reply Replies: 2 || 2019-06-06 09:50:11
Yesterday I went to the premiere and the movie to me was ok - it had some arguable approaches (too many dialogues?) but overall ok; I mostly went for the soundtrack and...
tbh I dind't like how the mixed the whole product. The SFX were really louder than the music in almost every powerful scene - the ones I expected the score to be more prominent, instead it was really in background. To me it felt kinda rushed, it wasn't a masterpiece of mixing. The score it self it was nice and a pleasure, but yeah, the engineering behind it could have been more well crafted. I just hope it will receive a new treatment for the Blu-ray release.


Medigo2019-06-06 10:45:43
Godzilla mixed its music badly too. This better not be a new trend.

(Then again some movies have stupidly been trying to bury its soundtrack for ages)


Mephariel2019-06-06 16:36:39
This has been a new trend for quite a while. Desplat wrote a thousand notes for a Valerian and I couldn't hear any of it because the mixing was so low.

The best of Hans since Dunkirk...love it wish there is Deluxe version with more music.


George2019-06-06 15:42:57
Also some of the ONLY Hans since Dunkirk, I’d which is still debatable. That score? Great. That listening experience? Terrible. I haven’t listened to Dark a Phoenix yet though.


MrZimmerFan2019-06-06 15:46:16
Dunkirk, if you have the mood (and the powerful images of the movie) is listenable.

As for Dark Phoenix, is nice suprise, at least, i have more enjoyment with this than the last score by Zimmer... Widows.

Anonymous reply Replies: 2 || 2019-06-06 15:18:46
Listening to it right now though my new zealand Deezer account. It is not bad but no masterpiece either.

It is very synthy and reminds me a lot of Zimmers Spiderman. Lots of synth and electronics with some synth choirs here and lots of synth drumming

Those who will expecting a semi-orchestral epic score in the style of Dark Knight series will be disappointed. There arent themes either except the first track.

Whenever a new Zimmer hits I always get excited but usually disppointed afterwards. I still haven't coped with it that his golden era ended years ago and always hope the next is the one that I am going to love for years to come.


Anonymous2019-06-06 15:27:16
Did it release early in NZ? Just made a Deezer account specifically to listen to it but I can't find it anywhere.

TB reply Replies: 0 || 2019-06-05 22:10:33
A very effective music. Pretty much the entire score is based on 5 chord progressions which are taken from Dido's Lament (Dido and Aeneas) by Purcell.

The melodic simplicity goes back to Interstellar, action sequence ostinatos and thunderous rhythmic percussion are reminiscent of The Knight Rises, the choral writing recalls Angels & Demons, and there is one scene in which the tune reminded me of Woad to Ruin from King Arthur.

It's impressive that the whole score is centered around a single motif, which reappears many times (at least 20) throughout the film, while maintaining interest. The rest of the soundtrack is more sound design.

Nick reply Replies: 0 || 2019-06-05 21:05:56
Since I as well am too stupid to try and circumvent my country's soundtrack unavailability, can someone enlighten me on prior OSTs Dark Phoenix is similar to in terms of color and creativity? And more broadly, whether or not this is a return to form for Zimmer and co., who was been disappointing me for the past few years? I'm somewhat encouraged by reading all your comments, but I'd also like to be sure for myself.

Mr Mister reply Replies: 0 || 2019-06-05 12:45:43
This is where Hans can shine. He is still creative and can come up with awesome ideas. It's a shame he industrialised his sound though, and his judgment has been questionable since 2010. For one, no one takes anything done by Balfe seriously, for example. He is a copycat, at best, if even that.

Mephariel reply Replies: 15 || 2019-06-04 04:53:03
People are raving about "Gap" but for me, "Deletion" is the most inspired cue from all the samples. I love the choral work. A mixture of wonder and fear.

I also love slow and beautiful Zimmer, so "Coda" also fits my cup of time.

I was originally hoping this will be a more blunt force approach, but instead, I got something I also want: thoughtful, serene Zimmer. I am very intrigue by the whole thing.


badbu 2019-06-04 05:55:37
OMG!!! I Love it!!!!!!!!!!!


badbu 2019-06-04 06:05:10
really guys...while im listening to „delition“ i cry...Jesus Christ...Hans did it again!!!


HunterTech2019-06-04 07:36:01
Yeah, Deletion and Coda have gotten my attention the most. Certainly makes me more interested in it, since it is a more subtle approach than I would've expected. Was somewhat reminded of TASM2 in the synth department, which does excite me (though I'm definitely not expecting that exact style here).


badbu2019-06-04 07:39:19
for me this is the best hans since interstellar! and this are only the previews! oO can't wait for the full score!!! love it, love it, love it!!!

thevinylrevival2019-06-04 18:47:15
"Gap", "Dark", "Amity", "Deletion" and "Coda" are my personal favorites.

It seems like "Gap" might be the new X-Men theme, while "Dark" is Jean/Dark Phoenix's theme. I'm REALLY happy that the tone of the score is so dark and unsettling. John Powell's theme for Dark Phoenix in The Last Stand was great, capturing the epicness of the Phoenix, but it lacked the element of fear. "Dark" captures that in spades.

God I can't wait for Friday.


nvictor2019-06-05 02:23:11
i agree with Mephariel on Coda looking like a slow and beautiful track. i was finally able to preview it! the roll out seems incremental and i am not sure if being on the east coast matters here.

the soundtrack is ending on a high / hopeful note. and i am trying to remember where i have heard this ending to a soundtrack from HZ before. what i can remember is gladiator's now we are free (without the singing). also, no dunkirk vibe for me, at least not from these previews. but rather a little bit of good old broken arrow in the synth / choir department.

well friday is just not coming fast enough!

Looks like 10 tracks on the initial release with around a 67 minute runtime, and the shortest track being 3:58 long.

Hybrid I’m assuming there’s going to be a second release or a deluxe release with the suites added as bonus tracks?


Iamtommie442019-06-03 20:32:44
I saw it on iTunes as well.

Longest track is 10:14
And every tracktitle contains of just 1 word

I was able to listen to the previews! The first and the last tracks sounded the most compelling, however with such long tracks I’m sure all the good stuff wasn’t really in the previews anyway. At least I hope lol.


Jack Afrogarrix 2019-06-03 20:42:13
So 10 Tracks. That's Not bad but i sure that this score will be awsome the return of hans zimmer to the superhero music it like remember It's music of BvS, Man of steel, batman & The amazing spider man 2. But i agree that he pretty sure that he will release an deluxe edition of the score with Bonus tracks & suites from the film.


Iamtommie442019-06-03 20:49:52
How did you listen to the previews?


George2019-06-03 20:53:30
@iamtommie44 - i pre-ordered the album on iTunes and then it let me listen to them.


mpolonest123 2019-06-03 20:56:34
Going by samples...

Very reminiscent of Inferno with the use of electronics, sound design, and heavy emphasis on piano. The female vocals are a great touch, particularly in “Coda”. This has me super curious what kind of experimentation Zimmer did early on in the process.


badbu2019-06-03 21:00:45

You don't have to pre-order to listen to the samples (I'm using iTunes on my computer).

"Gap" is absolutely amazing - it's the music from the Quicksilver/Space rescue mission clip.
Not gonna listen to any other samples. Want to experience the score with big "IMAX" speakers first.

Either there is a deluxe version or the extra tracks are CD exclusive (doubt it tho).
Waiting for things to be officially revealed :)


George2019-06-01 18:02:06
@ahmad or maybe 10 is just the iTunes default track number for something they don’t have all the info on? If they really are working done to the last minute, maybe iTunes simply just knows it’s coming but doesn’t have a track number yet? Who knows. I’m totally speculating lol
