I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.
I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.

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.
