Lovely score with beautiful themes, atmospheric vocal parts and a nice orchestration.This is a highly underrated album. It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1. A Storm Is Coming (0:00 - 0:36) (Logos) <br>2. Should You Choose To Accept (0:00 - 0:52) <br>3. Good Evening, Mr. Hunt (4:19) <br>4. Plutonium Trade (2:53) <br>5. A Terrible Choice (2:55) <br>6. The Manifesto (1:44)  <br>7. Fallout (1:30)  <br>8. Your Mission (2:14)  <br>9. Free Fall (4:14) <br>10. As Ugly As They Come (2:26) <br>11. The White Widow (4:42) <br>12. Should You Choose To Accept (0:52 - 2:34) <br>13. Framing Ethan (2:01)  <br>14. The Exchange (5:55)  <br>15. Escape Through Paris (5:05) <br>16. Steps Ahead (1:02)  <br>17.

Stairs And Rooftops (6:00)  <br>23. Kashmir (4:29) <br>24. Fate Whispers To The Warrior (3:54) <br>25. And The Warrior Whispers Back (3:56) <br>26. Scalpel And Hammer (0:00 - 2:19) <br>27.

Cutting On One (2:23 - 3:42) <br>33. The Last Resort (2:55)  <br>34. Mission: Accomplished (1:15) <br>BONUS TRACKS: <br>35. The Syndicate (Unused) (6:00) <br>36. Change Of Plan (Unused) (5:47)Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same time
ht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.
Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !you can't, it's only an info for the complete scoreAccording To Filmmusicreporter.com, it Is true Lorne Balfe Is Scoring Black Widow.<br><br>Wow this guy Is the Best, this is the first time balfe scoring an MCU since Iron Man(worked as an additional music). I can't believe that Alexandre Desplat, who is a good composer left the film just like I remember Rogue One. Well, Now i Hope that Lorne Balfe makes a great score just like he does always.

Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.

Why do the Balfe haters waste so much time moaning about his music.Always comes of sounding like an ex bitter employe I think.Gemini is as good as Fallout but it’s very cool.


Edmund Meinerts2019-10-12 16:27:24
Why do the Balfe loveres waste so much time jizzing over his music. Always comes of [sic] sounding like a 13-year-old fanboy discovering the internet for the first time I think.


AndrewM2019-10-12 17:07:52
Edmund what is wrong with you ? Using childish language is pathetic. “Jizzing” is an idiotic term.If some of us like his music the why does it irritate you.You sound like a jealous failed composer always complaining when he releases a soundtrack.


Mike2019-10-12 17:09:38
Edmundo - you always stalk anyone complimenting a Balfe project for some reason?

Really boring your negative comments all the time


Edmund Meinerts2019-10-12 19:58:01
"All the time"? I'm pretty sure this is my first comment on a Balfe score this year.

Great film with a classic soundtrack.one of the best action soundtracks this year.The film was though a bit slow and one one good action scene.

I'm a Balfe fan, but this score seems like it's half done, a real shame.


arthur spooner2019-10-12 11:52:03

Brilliant score.

Been a fan of Balfes since Genius and this fantastic.Watched the film last night and it worked great with the film.

George reply Replies: 0 || 2019-10-11 15:55:08
Gemini Man is the best track on the album by far. There are some good, functional action tracks... but I’d still choose to listen to Geostorm over this.

Obviously LB has to serve the film.. but it can be frustrating when he comes out with a masterpiece like Fallout and a total dud like Hurricane Heist all in the same year.

As MrZimmerFan said - it’s not bad. And it’s not anything near as bad as Pacific Rim or Hurricane Heist. However it’s nothing memorable either, which is frustrating for a film that was supposed to be innovative visually.

Hopefully 6 Underground brings us something to rave about.

An unimportant score by a composer who uses only the old familiar, which has been heard a thousand times. may be that he gets many orders but just as he gets the orders as well as his music. a Dudel here and something there and finished so his music is extremely rare on cd published because it is simply irrelevant and the inspiration is missing.

no honestly, how much time did Lorne have to score this?

And New York City no ?


ThePhantasm2019-10-11 04:34:37
ever since MI: Fallout i feel like Lorne is a much better composer particularly with action. I like Bike Fu and Catacombs


MrZimmerFan2019-10-11 11:57:39
Even if i don't think is as fun like Geostorm (altough, there are certain similiraties in the action music) or Terminator Genysis, even M:I-Fallout, is an entertaining conventional action score.

At least, is not Hurricane Heist or Uprising, thank god

I really liked "Last Shot" in the movie. It's cool to hear it now without all the talkign and sfx.


Pong2019-10-09 01:34:50
Ouch - if these are the promotional (ie. the good) tracks from the score, why don't they just release Badelt's The Recruit from 2002 under the same title. Same score, much less hassle. No one liked Badelt's score in 2002, no one ought to like it any better now that it's under the Balfe monicker.
