Can these be accessed anywhere?The dream is collapsing... :oHoly f*ck, just listened to "Too Many Notes..." and its containing pirates theme itself from Pirates of the caribbean'No Good About Goodbye' was never the intended song for QOS. It was composed after the film was completed using thematic material from the film for Shirley Bassey to perform on her, David Arnold produced album, 'The Performance'Those files are just sitting there.<br><br>Undownloadable.<br><br>Taunting me.
@Ds<br>Siding with the guy that lied through his teeth to feign objectivity seems like a bad call.<br><br>In any case, modern Bay and Snyder don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Fury Road.<br><br>I already discussed 300 and Pacific Rim.  Clearly deep scripts aren't what I'm aiming for here when I talk about good blockbusters.<br><br>What DOES matter is scripts with razor focus, sharp pacing, witty and/or charming humor (if it wants humor, that is), and characters likable enough to carry us through the narrative.<br><br>300's a great example of this, though unfortunately a lot of Snyder's other work isn't, and Bay is close behind.  Their films get bogged with way too much obnoxious bullshit to make the odd sequence worth it.<br><br>The Scorponok sequence from TF1, the warehouse fight from BvS, that's real standout stuff.  Stuff that loses a lot of its luster when surrounded by two-and-a-half, or god forbid THREE, hours of self-serious pretense, lazy humor, and/or annoying characters.<br><br>And again, the likes of Pacific Rim, or 300, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean, or the first Kingsmen, or John Wick, or most Guy Ritchie films, or the better fourth of superhero films, illustrate that Bay and Snyder have no excuse.<br><br>They just aren't very good filmmakers on the whole, and need to learn to consolidate their efforts into something that brings out their best and subdues their worst.  Snyder in particular has SERIOUSLY misjudged where his talent is lately.Well, Steve, about the score, says he still working on it.<br><br>I can't wait.A snippet of the verse (at 0:49) also shows up occasionally in the score, in Somebody Wants to Kill You, the end of Greene and Camille, and Field Trip.Ist there any chance for concert in Poland during this tour?How do I listen to this ?
Hybrid, what about any credits for this score?Looking to travel to Berlin for the kickoff. Reckon the concert is in german instead in english?100% agree.<br><br>“You Know My Name”, “Skyfall”, “Goldfinger”, etc. all stand out because they embrace the grander aspects of 007. Having a calm and reflective Bond song can be just as effective though. I feel like “No Time to Die” is basically trying to do what “Writing on the Wall” tried but succeeding much better.I really like the song. It has, I think, a Bangkok Dangerous vibe at first, before the first lyrics. <br>I read some comments on youtube stating its a bad Bond song because its too calm. I disagree. Sure, its less punchy than You Know My Name, but some previous Bond songs, like Tomorrow Never Dies, had the same "mood". <br>This song, No Time to Die, would also have been a prefect choice for the movie Quantum of Solace, which had this melancholic tone. i espacially picture this music during the train bar scene in Quantum of solace, when Bond is drinking thinking about Vesper and the past.Man, i wan that score
"Time to Get Out", “Pursuit At...”, “No Interest In...” and “I Never Left” all incorporate the piano motif from “Another Way to Die”. Granted, they are more like cameos than anything really substantial.Anybody who heard from Steve Mazzaro's website to listen by The Rhythm Section with soundtrack, it's ain't not bad at all.I’m aware about no good about goodbye and yes it’s in various cues. can you tell me where another way to die appears? also check out “talomne” it has you know my name on stringsSeriously, the complete score needs to come out. We NEED those Mazzaro suites on our devices!Just came back from Mazzaro’s website. Why didn’t they include the extended versions of some of the tracks? Not to mention an entirely unreleased track.<br><br>This is the closest we’ll get to having an “original” album by Zimmer and his team. Darn...

Looks to be.

Thought it would be the case that Beyonce gets first rights to releasing it.

Initially I was against Hans remaking arguably one of his most famous scores, but seeing the trailers and marketing have hyped me up very much. As much as I can’t wait to hear the classic themes, I’m interested to what new material he’s going to bring to the table.

I also wonder if any of the sub-themes are going to be left out (Scar/Hyena motif, Timon & Pumba’s Theme)


Iamtommie442019-07-03 00:10:17
Well, I hope he builds on them and explores them more, like Alan Menken did with Beauty And The Beast!
1 week till the soundtrack. 2 weeks till the movie. Very excited!!

Why the devil would you not want Hans Zimmer to compose one of his masterpieces? The music needed his touch and beauty. I would have been absolutely pissed if another composer took on the work of The Lion King.


DT-20172019-07-07 10:15:05
Because his style is different now than it was in the 1990s.

Debney could have done well (he's Favreau's go-to composer and worked with him on The Jungle Book). Having said that, if he's going back to a score odds are he's revisiting that style anyway. I'd definitely be interested to hear it not least because unlike the 1994 score this one will be mixed how he wants it from the off.


mpolonest123 2019-07-07 17:21:53
@Josiah
The Lion King seemed to be a very personal score for Zimmer, so seeing him tackle the same project does have me a bit nervous. Not that I don’t think he will deliver a great score, but it will def. be hard to capture that lightning in a bottle twice.

Also, I’ve personally not liked any of these Disney “Live Action” remakes from the past few years. “The Jungle Book” being the only exception. This looks like it’s going to be following the trend of doing a shot-for-shot remake while adjusting some scenes/songs with small additions.


superultramegaa2019-07-07 18:53:19
Yeah, I really don't see this score being anything worth talking about in regards to Zimmer. It's probably going to be forgotten soon afterwords, unless Hans somehow pulls off some really impressive orchestral writing that surpasses the original.

Jsdamian reply Replies: 0 || 2019-07-03 18:00:32
Does anyone know the duration of the songs? What is clear is that the mysterious song is a song created by beyonce, lebo and zimmer

Well, as long as Hans doesn't re-orchestrate it to sound worse.

I'm posting here after goodness knows how long, but there couldn't be a better occasion. This is my most anticipated score of the year and I cannot wait to hear how HZ has adapted his classic melodies here. I really hope they do release a Deluxe edition with the rest of the score at some point.


DT-20172019-06-25 11:08:07
Out of the scores I've been looking forward to this year, I can say that I've already had my most anticipated :P

I doubt we'll get 'all' of the score. IF a Deluxe Edition happens it will probably have some suites on it. I do wonder what this will sound like.


Ravi Krishna2019-06-25 16:10:24
I guess so. I wish we had gotten something like the soundtrack of the Beauty & The Beast remake, which had the second CD devoted to the score alone. But I understand this album arrangement. I hope the tracks are long and score portion runs at least 45 minutes. Can't wait to hear the stampede and final battle tracks in particular.


Mephariel2019-06-25 16:24:41
That is what I am hoping for as well. Long tracks. I think if each track is at least 5 mins long, we get at least 45 mins of music. I suspect the last 2 or 3 tracks will be closer to 10 mins long.

Love to know what scene "Rafiki's Fireflies" & TBA will be. So excited for this score and movie. Bought my tickets yesterday!!


DT-20172019-06-25 12:47:32
Rafiki's Fireflies is probably the scene where he 'marks' Simba in his tree.

As for TBA, it's the Beyonce song so it's possible Beyonce insisted that she gets to reveal it or release it as a single first.

DT-2017 reply Replies: 0 || 2019-06-24 23:24:10
An interesting album arrangement given the 1994 album arranged the tracks into suites and it seems that's not happening here (and we all know how much hans loves his suites). Seems like it's going to hit every major note that the previous Legacy set does and then some.

Does this mean that He Lives In You and Mbube are not new recordings, or at least not entirely new recordings?

Hybrid, I counted only 9 tracks from Zimmer. Is this the complete score or will there be a separate album with more music?


Hybrid Soldier2019-06-24 19:50:18
Probably not.


D A R T H2019-06-24 22:56:16
do you have Informations about a limited edition ?

Hybrid did Hans do everything the same? or is there any difference in this score? Yes or no :D


Mephariel2019-06-24 20:15:43
The movie is like 30 minutes longer than the original so I don't think it can be the same all the way through.


D A R T H2019-06-24 22:53:56
it's a complete new recording
