Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

Why hasn’t the soundtrack been released yet?


badbu2019-07-11 07:03:59
don't know...i thought 11th digitally and 19th physical...


DT-20172019-07-11 08:02:12
I thought so too? Isn't that what the press release said?


Anonymous2019-07-11 08:18:51
Hopefully they release the soundtrack tomorrow


ram2019-07-11 08:34:29
maybe at midnight in California?


Thomas2019-07-11 08:48:16
Or 9:00 or 10:00 because they sometimes release the soundtrack at these times


DT-20172019-07-11 09:14:13
Confirmed via Twitter it'll be out 8AM PT.


Thomas2019-07-11 09:19:02
Tomorrow and can you give me the link?


DT-20172019-07-11 09:26:07
Link to what? A download? This isn't a piracy site.


DT-20172019-07-11 09:40:30
First, this site disallows links, second, who's being the jerk here, given that comment was so ambiguous it could be taken a dozen different ways, and third, is it REALLY that hard to go on Twitter, to the official Disney Music Twitter page and see it for yourself?

Leo reply Replies: 0 || 2019-07-11 08:47:48
It says here that the release date is in the 13th and not 11th, maybe the outlets got it wrong or it got postponed?

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!!

Josiah2019-07-05 06:14:30
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.

Probably not.

The movie is like 30 minutes longer than the original so I don't think it can be the same all the way through.
