I agree. I don't think he's anything special. His greatest strengths lie in cool themes and especially rhythmic hooks or ostinatos, but I don't think he's yet written a consistently good score (often some wonderful individual pieces contained within an otherwise bland whole, which describes pretty much the entirety of the Game of Thrones music among other things). I hear positive things about The Great Wall, though.<br><br>Macejko will, of course, disagree.Ramin is overrated!Just found this link from his twitter . Music in it is cool<br>https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HHCk2q6UqYEAny news about his score for Detroit . His music made BeyondPaesano's okay but I was actually hoping for Djawadi to return (not so often I say that, but this is his best film score IMO, and only topped by GoT S6 overall).
excellent sound mixing, Thanks<br>I hear the hand of Hans in each noteHello Doponko,<br><br>I've been searching for this soundtrack for years and have been unable to find it anywhere. Wound you consider sending me these tracks or telling me where I can find a cd?<br>Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!<br><br>I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.I'm greatly surprised that the great Herbie Hancock is also in this terrific scoreYes, Paesano is a good choice, but for Ramin it would be better..... He would be the better option in my eyes ;)
John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.I can't play the music, although I did play it before, what happened?And it sounds great! It also seems like the original end titles are included as well.<br><br>One interesting thing, the mix sounds a bit different in the samples. The percussion and brass are both more pronounced I think.I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.There's a sample of this cue on their site :)
FUCK! :(Finally, LaLaLand has done it! Many kudos to them!!!! One my holy grails as well. I've been waiting for this for ages!<br>Take my money LaLaLand Records! Just take it!John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories.  There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention.  Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade.  Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?"  If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.

This is a superb DVD! For a ivnlioist, Frank Peter Zimmermann represents the highest level of musicianship. The Documentary is not just about Bach, in fact it has lots of other footage, including his son and his own performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Danish Radio Symphony (this is excellent). He plays like Kogan, not surprisingly and his technique is as flawless as any ivnlioist I have seen or heard.

Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt also worked together on various works including the GLADIATOR and INVINCIBLE soundtracks, but don't expect to listen to anything similar, in the score for THE PLEDGE.

Unlike the last few Zimmer scores, which were vast, dramatic, intense and epic, THE PLEDGE, is built on a more down-beat atmosphere (and thatís of course due to the nature of the movie) The score opens with a beautiful and haunting melody sang by a woman and repeated by a violin.
Track02 contains several percussion beats and creates a scary atmosphere. Parts like this can be found a lot in the score -- where percussion, electronic sounds and effects, scary voices, piano, violin, the female voice and mandolin create a creepy atmosphere, like track04, track05, track09, track12, track13, track15.
In track03, the main theme makes its first appearance. It consists of guitar, mandolin, violin and piano and can be heard several times in the film, sometimes in different versions - the main instrument could be piano in one, violin or guitar in other (track07, track08 (more upbeat and fast, played by beautiful guitar), track11, track15).
The score also has a piano theme that can be firstly heard in track06 and repeats itself several times during the film (like in track10). It has a sad and lovely tune, a real treat for the ears!
In track 12 we have the beautiful female voice again in another haunting melody that features great atmosphere, feeling and depth.
Track14 is a combination of all the themes and great parts of the entire score. It consists of the female voice, vastly beautiful and sad piano melodies and the violin for escort-- probably the best track in this album and some of Zimmer's greatest works up-to-date.
Track16, which closes the film, is also a combination of several themes and parts of the film. It starts with the piano theme (heard in track06 and track10) and goes on with haunting and scary electronic effects and sounds created by percussion, guitar, mandolin and creepy violin. Then the piano theme is played by violin this time and makes a great difference. The track, (at about 3 minutes of play), gets loud, creepy and scary-- then calms down and ends with a more intense variation of track 14, played by violin (as the main instrument) piano, mandolin, guitars and loud percussion, providing the score (and film) with a more up-beat ending.

The entire score is a great work, which has lovely melodies and themes for easy listening. All these create a sad and sometimes creepy atmosphere that fits perfect in the theme and subject of the film. THE PLEDGE is not your typical Hans Zimmer or Klaus Badelt score for sure, with the great choir themes, loud brass and dramatic, epic atmosphere and feeling. It's just lovely, sad and hauntingly beautiful - quality music for all the music and movie lovers, and -of course- Zimmer followers.
