Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.
I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.
Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lol
So is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)

Anybody else notice that the track "Spider Attack" actually cuts a fairly noticeable section out at the beginning? When you know who is attacked by the Deadlights, there's those low blasts like the "Deadlights" track from Chapter 1.

It shouldn't be a biggie though: it seems to be an easily-replicatable section.

What, no one's commenting on this? It's both great and massively aggravating. There's so many moments of ethereal melodic beauty but they get violated by massively aggressive sound procession. Yes, it is a frigging film score. Anyways, you lot will enjoy the Shore reference in The Ritual of Chud.

How you end up enjoying this depends on how you felt about the first It.

On one hand BW really did wonders on the orchestral side of things. He definitely focuses on the fantasy aspect moreso this time around, with portions sounding closer to the magical parts of “Shazam”. The last handful of cues are stunning.

On the other, many of the horror tracks seem to bleed together here. There doesn’t seem to be the same amount of variety as the first score. I also noticed that certain cues pull heavily from the first one, something JNH tends to do in his sequel scores.


MrZimmerFan2019-08-30 18:30:27
I like the first IT, but i am throughfully enjoyed this one a lot more.

Specially the last handful tracks are terrific, overall, a tremendous good score

As benjamin climbs the charts in popularity in scoring movies, i have to say he's been hit or miss with me.

Blade Runner, It pt 1 and Hellboy (only because it reminds me of Xbox Killer Insinct music) stand out...the rest to me are meh


Knight2019-08-31 21:11:58
I'd recommend his scores for Summer in Feburary, Mully, Gamba, Bitter Harvest and Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. All these are leagues better than his current output imo, I'd put Mully and Summer in Feburary as my favourite scores of his.

I'm on my first listen now and I'm pretty disappointed. The emotional/orchestral pieces like "Firefly","Memory" and "Losers Reunited" are really nice and work well, while the actually horror tracks are just a jumble of noise and sound.

I really would have preferred him to break with horror soundtrack tradition and do a fully orchestral score instead of using loud, jarring noises to amplify what I'm assuming are going to be jump scares. The latter is really lazy and it sucks because it's hard to find good horror scores these days.

I've still got a fair portion of the album left, so my opinion might change, but it seems like the whole score is going to be like this.


tilibro2019-09-02 00:48:15
Rule No. 1 of all modern horror movie scores: Always have loud banging percussion when there's a "scary" moment.

@tilibro

Ugh, I know. Carpenter's score for Halloween last year was the first horror score since Evil Dead that I really, really liked.

I wrapped up my listen of this last night and aside from the horror tracks I really, really liked it. But my frustration with the horror tracks is made even worse because the orchestral tracks do an amazing job of conveying that creeping, unsettling feeling. "You Knew" was a great example of a mixture between the horror elements (that guitar riff was a BIG surprise and I wish it had been used more) and the orchestral. And tracks 28-36 were fantastic. THAT was what I was hoping for, those tracks proves that Ben is definitely capable of it.

Is 27 Years Later the only reprise of that piano theme? Gonna save the score for after watching the film.

Nothing Lasts Forever is so good. I can't stop listening to this.

Has Ben really composed all the songs without arrangers?


Knight2019-08-31 08:26:39
I don't see any arrangers credited on imdb so I'm inclined to say yes he did. Remember, he also wrote all of Shazam by himself as well.

The tracks "Return To Niebolt" and "Scary" have been posted to WaterTower Music's official YouTube page as a taster.

Very excited for this! I think BW did a great job with the first score, given the constraints horror music usually puts on composers. Hopefully he is able to keep the same balance of orchestral/processed sound design.

WaterTower Music released one song called Back To Neibolt on YouTube, and, I can't wait to hear the rest of 45 tracks till the midnight.
