Why would I ever do that ?<br><br><br>Tracklist is the real one... -_-New trailer for the Sonic movie.<br>https://youtu.be/szby7ZHLnkAIs there any chance of a concert in London?i mean, the page, would you update with the tracklist posted years ago?What.
Un artiste qui a une force mais d'une puissance ! Bravo depuis la France !@Hybrid would you update the complete score with the new tracklist? Thankswhat happened here?. Track 4 Bunker Bust and Track 14 River mission are the exact same track. The game itself has a couple of good themes that didn't make it onto the album.I am really sorry but WHY THERE IS NO CONCERT IN POLAND???Also where I think the "Spidey Theme" listed here is from, since what's on there is basically a slightly expanded "Spidey Logo - Flying" that doesn't quite fit in with length of the scene in the movie.
Before any of the expanded leaks came about, there was this 10 track set that apparently came from promotional materials for the film. While a good chunk of cues are from the final score, 3 seem to be demos that were much harsher in sound. Two of them being the Electro Showdown tracks listed here, which weren't added to the largest set currently out there (that has 2 other tracks from the 10 tk set).<br><br>Of course, there is the website that is forbidden to mention that you can find it on, but I'm sure it's reached other outlets as well if you know where to look. Was going to write about this earlier when the previous set of posts asking similiar questions were made, but I got sidetracked.Would love an instrumental track of thisďThe AlethiometerĒ might be my new favorite track of the year. Those chord progressions scream JNH/Jerry Goldsmith and are pretty similar to Balfeís work on Beyond: Two Souls/Blackwood.<br><br>Iím glad to see this score getting some love, Iíve always been annoyed with how people seem to slam Balfe for his more workmanlike efforts while ignoring the stronger scores he has done over the years.I really like this score. Not a big fan of Balfe, but really enjoy this one.<br><br>And is it me or does The Tales Of Lee Scoresby really sound like Sweetwater from Westworld?Hi,<br><br>the VIP ticket prices are very high and I wonder if a Meet & Greet is included or possible?
Edit: The track "Farewell" is actually the track titled "Unused Source".<br>I've looked for a while now and can't find a track specifically titled "Farewell" that matches the one listed here. Also, both of the alternate versions of the  "Electro Showdown" are evading my search. Do they actually exist?<br>I agree, lovely choir compositions; although I find myself preferring his work on Kyrie simply due to the larger orchestral/instrumental arrangments.Tickets bought!Amazing album!

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, Iíd which is still debatable. That score? Great. That listening experience? Terrible. I havenít 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 Ądelitionď 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!

I listened to the previews, and they do have an interstellar/inception/dunkirk vibe. Personally I love what I have heard so far from negative. Some of the vocal noises in the background sound a lot like Arrival by Johannson which is awesome.

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

Hybrid Iím assuming thereís 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


George2019-06-03 20:34:31
I was able to listen to the previews! The first and the last tracks sounded the most compelling, however with such long tracks Iím sure all the good stuff wasnít 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 ďCodaĒ. This has me super curious what kind of experimentation Zimmer did early on in the process.


badbu2019-06-03 21:00:45
@ George from which country? in Germany I can't pre order the album

Ahmad2019-06-04 00:11:54
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.

@badbu hmmm interesting with only 10 tracks. That seems to contradict what Hybrid was saying.. unless thereís going to be a deluxe version as well?..


Ahmad2019-06-01 17:56:03
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 donít have all the info on? If they really are working done to the last minute, maybe iTunes simply just knows itís coming but doesnít have a track number yet? Who knows. Iím totally speculating lol

Yup. I think things are just being processed and handled - no need to panic.

first cue is like Dunkirk - Supermarine, Hans has started making very strange compositions for the last 4 years, most of them are the same.


Anonymous2019-06-01 15:55:02
agreed. I hear Dunkirk. with a dash of BvS


nvictor2019-06-01 16:29:11
i hear a rise which is common in many compositions. the only thing common with supermarine here is the pattern. but i could be wrong.

if anything, it would be nice to point out the exact parts that sound similar to dunkirk or BvS so we can all learn.


Ahmad2019-06-01 17:00:22
Itís so good! Yes, similar to Supermarine but definitely not the same.
I think itís normal for composers to explore past ideas and expand them on other projects. Itís different enough.

So, info about the OST. It's gonna be 2 CDs. First CD will be film score. Second will be more suites & ideas (as I told you Hans wrote a lot of music within the past 1.5 year). No release date yet, but you bet they are rushing to have it ready in 10 days...

Two CDs?! :O
Wish he had done this for another film that I won't name for the sake of not derailing this thread which begged for an extended release - oh well, Hans.

His music hyped me to see the movie and the Quicksilver clip sounds incredible. I can't wait.

So glad to see this get the MoS treatment, Iím sure that there will be plenty of great cues in film missing from the album (as usual with any Zimmer release) but having the suites and experimentations has me very excited!

Only thing I can think of is Interstellar with the Illuminated Star Edition.

TASM2


George2019-05-28 17:51:48
Okay so either way itís been almost 5 years since a release like this. And all three of those scores are classics (including TASM2). Definitely excited for this release.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-29 21:43:03
Interstellar and MOS are MUCH better than TASM2. IMHO


mpolonest123 2019-05-30 03:45:37
So apparently the entire ending was reshot to move the final battle from space to Earth and keep things on a more ďpersonalĒ level.

I wonder if Hans had scored the original version of the film and had to keep reworking it as they made the various changes (which definitely explains why heís been working on it for so long)


Anonymous2019-05-30 03:49:34

Damn! Do they always work on scores this close to release? (film release and OST). I miss the days when we got info, art and track lists early.
