Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.
I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.
Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.
So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!

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.

Peter reply Replies: 0 || 2019-10-12 14:29:10
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.

Mr.Unbreakable reply Replies: 1 || 2019-10-11 17:30:07
I'm a Balfe fan, but this score seems like it's half done, a real shame.


arthur spooner2019-10-12 11:52:03
and yet again, a half-baked score like every other score of him :(

Cool music in this film and some of the best action sequences I have ever seen.lorne is the best at action music

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?


Anonymous2019-10-10 22:32:39
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.
