Hey man, I'm sure you already know this, but you are awesome! I just watched your Vanity Fair video from two years ago. Your take on life and your music is amazing, keep up the good work!I do really like benjamin wallfisch's new score for the invisible man, which is release today in cinema. I'm a fan of wallfisch's film score since lights out and including other film scores, but i begin to hear the score in spotify & youtube and i do like the score with the full orchestra & electronic music within the film music and there are two themes for the film but there are most motif, like mr.zimmerfan says. <br><br>I just hope that this page can released the soundtrack details of The Invisible man soon and this score is good.The Invisible Man, would be one of the most dark, hard-hearing scores by Wallfisch, by far, multiple people will hate this score -i know, is difficult listening horror scores-, but when is good, is good.<br><br>If you love Lights Out, the two ITs, speacially, A Cure for Wellness, The Invisible Man is for you: dark, unpleasing (the theme for Elisabeth Moss' character is a beautiful melodie, example in 'Denouement', constantly accosed -rightly word- with the sounds of the Invisible Man, he has not theme, more motif and tremendously agresive sound desing, you can here listen in 'Attack') and very Hermann-esque (the score was only recorded with string orchestra, say by Wallfisch).<br><br>Like i said before, is not a score for everyone, but if you love Wallfisch's writing for horror, this one is for youNow, i believe, is one of the best (i was more enganging with this one more than Solo, wich i still found good, but not the best from Powell, sorry) scores written by Powell, still, not has tremendous as the HTTYD trilogy, but one of the most incredible, beautiful and heart-warming scores written by him.<br><br>Powell found himself comfortable with this style of americana/folk (Wake the Girls, is a such good start the album) and combining it with his action/adventure style of writing ('Snowy Climb', the incredible -one of the best cues of the album- 'Buck Takes the Lead', 'Ice Rescue'), but when it comes the emotional -not discover nothing new-, man, Powell is fricking good: 'We Carry Love', 'Finding Bears and Love in the Woods' or 'Come Say Goodbye'.<br><br>One of the best scores of 2020, by far.I found myself more entertaining by this one (after multiple listenings) than with Skyscraper, but not more than TLK or TMNT and TLWH.<br><br>The themes are there, very simplistic, but effective (the melodie for RST twisted in 'Harting', for example or the more melodic and peaceful theme in 'KT'), and yes, the sound design, but in the defense of Jab, he is far more rhytmic than others attepmting it (the element of horror hearing in 'Martin Axe' or the percussive twisted agressive in 'The Tunnel') or the more echoing 'The Island' guitar riffs in 'Ray Garrison', even he reutilizes the percussive timing Decepcticon theme for the motif (i think) for Bloodshot.<br><br>Maybe, i gave him more credit, but in his defense, i was expecting something more electronic (plenty electronic are here), but is more orchestral and melodic i was expecting.
Sadly this one failed to impress in any way for me. I felt like falling asleep for much of this album. Overall too simplistic, ugly, and cliched with very difficult to pin down thematic material, as the melodies are so minimalist.To whom it may concern...<br><br>Is it possible to download or in any other way purchase the Hannibal (Expanded) score somewhere? I have the original motion picture soundtrack, but would LOVE to have them both..<br><br>Best regards<br><br>Nicholas10 and 16 are missing from the store pack.Most probablyI am not a hybrid, i will try to give my opinion. I think, music in 5 season will come out when and 6 season. But I really want to be wrong!!! :)
It's very sad...(((The 'Allentown Brothers' track is pretty damn awesome (find it on YouTube). It's like a mix between gothic Elfman, Desperate Housewives and Transformers. I love it.<br><br>It's one of those scores that people don't talk about much but it's actually pretty cool. <br><br>An awesome venue would be the Opera House in Odessa.Want this so bad!!!Does anyone have a breakdown of this with the official score album?<br>
Hats off to Batu Sener for working on many of the score's best cues though!It all comes to personal preference I think. Personally I’ve moved on from collecting cd’s (or anything really) and would rather have everything digital simply to utilize space. <br><br>That being said, I completely understand the appeals of having physical media, it would be sad to see that go away for the people who really love it.It's not only to appreciate the work, its to have something "real" in your hands, for your music collection. I don't like only to have a digital music archive. Of course, i rip all the cds i own to WAV and MP3. But i want to have them in my physical music collection.These day, sure. But we usually get news of the next one by the time he's finished wrapping up the current one.Powell only does 1 score a year.

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

I really am gonna wipe manly tears again when Stampede hits, aren't I? :(

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!!

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.

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
