Can't wait to hear this. I am huge fan of Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II.Is nobody going to talk about this amazing soundtrack???I know Im 10 years late, but god wish this got complete recordings release, so much music is missing...The track in the video I linked sounds decent. Works well for the scene.Back in 2003/2004 some guy made his own fan-made "expanded score". <br>Some tracks were actually OST tracks looped, with some drums added in the mix, some were from an unknown source. I only remember some badly-mixed synth cues that sounded like home-made, experimental material.
would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0
But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the score
Tom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe gap music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>

This score shows how important a composer is who knows how to work with a certain genre. Jablonsky knows how to compose a memorable heroic theme and manipulate it to fit an emotion, and write decent choir and even impressive brass at times. Despite relying on ostinatos and rhythm, he still does his best to make a track feel full and dynamic.

Djawadi's Gears 4 style meanwhile, involves writing a bunch of ostinato loops and motifs, and people hail it as "thematically impressive" despite none of it sounding particularly memorable, or even relevant. He mostly just sticks with bare-sounding percussion and string ostinatos, with the occasional low brass punch, leaving the action and the "themes" feeling empty and cliched.

Though to give credit, at least in this game he's attempting to create actual themes as opposed to motifs, and they generally have a fuller sound. However his action music is still completely empty and dull feeling, with the same problems as his gears 4 sound (except slightly more low horns and electronics).

Gears scores haven't really been interesting since Gears 2... I never revisited Gears 3 & Judgement was terrible...

Ramin's best game is Medal of Honor. I have yet to listen to Gears 5...


Mr.Unbreakable2019-09-07 16:54:19
I think Lorne has the right sound for Gears


johny5552019-09-07 19:59:46
have you listened to the track "The Storm" from GoW4? Probably my most favorite from GoW 4 and 5


Shince Thomas 2019-09-08 19:29:40
What? Tracks such as Kaits theme and Bittersweet victory alone brings a lot of depth to Gears 5.True,Gears of War 4 Soundtack had its issues, but with Gears 5 Djawadi has redeemed for his previous outing's weakness.


MrZimmerFan2019-09-08 20:49:54
Gears of War 4 was a big dissappointing score (honestly, i still prefer Gears 2 and 3), but this one is a little better, a improvement from the last score.

That's dosen't mean the score is terrific. It's entertaining, but still far from Gears 2 and 3


Mr.Unbreakable2019-09-08 22:20:56
Both Gears 4 and 5 are complete disappointments, knowing what Ramin is capable of, a real pity.

I actually really liked it. Just listened to it on the train home from work. Really enjoyed Kait's theme and the action cues, as well as the dark tinge to the tracks.

Is it his best? Not at all. And the album has the misfortune of being released not too long after Ramin's phenomenal GoT score which doesn't help things. But as far as a regular score goes, I've heard a LOT worse.

Great soundtrack. Really fits the game well. Just finished the game.

One of the most bombastic and epic shooter campaigns I played in the last decade.

Really great Soundtack, where Gears of war 4 focused on action cues, this Gears 5 soundtrack focuses on emotional pieces as well.
