Giacchino IS going to be in Spider-Man 3, but if Raimi is in Doctor Strange 2, 100% sure is going to be Elfman (or Christopher Young, which some people spread the rumor before Giacchino get the gig for Doc 1)<br><br>But, i'm not big fan of Giacchino's work for Spidey (neither Zimmer's TASM2)I really like Elfman, especially his early work or scores like Alice In Wonderland, Dumbo or parts kf Age Of Ultron.<br><br>But please let Giacchino score both Spider-Man 3 & Doctor Strange 2. His scores for the Marvel films and his other work are outstanding. It would be a shame to let someone else take his 2 trilogy of movies in the MCU.Like everyone else, I've been looking for the "Safe in my Arms" song...for over 15 years! <br><br>I spoke with Valerie a while back and she did not have a way for me to purchase the song :( <br><br>See you guys in another 15 years!Well my bet is that either Elfman or Giacchino will end up scoring the film, and we all know how willing they are to use other composers' themes. :p<br><br>I severely doubt either Horner's or Zimmer's theme will reappear. If Giacchino scores it he'll probably write yet another theme or rework his own Spidey theme, and if Elfman gets the gig I expect him to just use his own theme.Well, it's either an edit of these cues, or it's an original one, recorded in that form (theme suite or something like that), and the other film cues are just based on that one!
So more and more websites have been saying that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are going to have cameos in Doctor Strange 2. Which begs the question, if Garfield appears and they do use unique music for him, what theme are they gonna use for him? Horner's or Zimmer's? <br><br>Horner's is probably more revered, but neither theme is necessarily iconic among general audiences since they each only had one movie to develop.It happened with Sherlock Holmes 2 OST.Thank you, but I noticed that Tennessee is actually a micro edited hell of End Titles + Main Titles + Danny & Evelyn Make Love :/I think I know what happend here:<br><br>They somehow messed up the sampling rate of either the source files or while recording the master.<br><br>When I record a part in 48kHz on my computer and play it back at 44.1kHz it sounds right to my ears.<br><br>I'm of course not sure if that's a mistake on paramount or mondo's end but i'ts pretty weird that something like this can happen without someone noticing it...The original soundtrack of rebuilding paradise will be release next week in november 6, 2020 at Lakeshore Records and here's is the tracklist<br><br>1.Rebuilding Paradise<br>2.Day Of Fire<br>3.One Year Anniversary<br>4.Return To Ashes<br>5.Fire Reunited Family<br>6.Aftermath<br>7.We're Coming Back<br>8.Memorial<br>9.Love Of The Land<br><br>Total Album Time: (34:40)<br>

Nope,The composer is Dan Romer (Maniac).

Mr.Unbreakable reply Replies: 1 || 2019-12-21 02:07:54
Something has failed with the complete score, knowing what Balfe is capable of doing by arranger good themes, I don't quite understand why the score stands out so little.


mpolonest123 2019-12-21 02:49:10
Having seen the first few episodes I was surprised at how “in the background” the music really was. Especially compared to the excellent concept album released earlier.

I took a spin with the new album, there are still some standout tracks but I do feel like a good chunk has that underscore feeling to it.

Loving the complete score for His Dark Materials.Silver Guillotone, Armored Claws and Polar Adventure are the best cues of the album.This soundtrack and 6 Underground have made Christmas !

Balfe reply Replies: 2 || 2019-12-20 13:55:40
I am willing to give Balfe the benefit - the concept album is great and there are good points in the show - but the actual score is frigging terrible. Like a cheap youtube approximation of Hans Zimmer. What the fuck is this?


Drone2019-12-20 14:01:49
So, either Balfe does all the great music, and the drones get on it and make it sound synthetic and pointless, or Balfe likes the pointless......Who composed the His Dark Material Anthology? Who composed the score for the BBC show? And what the fuck happened in between? The themes are the same but the performance is totally different and the theme development is pitiful. So is it the case that Balfe did a 50 minute concept album with an actual orchestra that some interns put to picture, cos this is a massive disappointment?

Yeah, the actual score is actually pretty bad. Totally synthy, or at least cheap two-band orchestra, HZ-trailer muzak from the early 2000s. What happened here - massive disappointment.

maholen reply Replies: 0 || 2019-12-19 10:36:10
You don't have to agree with me. But it is my attitude towards the music of Lorne Balfe and as I mentioned. Not everything is bad, but not everything is really good either. His scores are uninteresting after listening to them a third time at the latest. Precisely because everything sounds familiar. He was a good composer for additional music for various Hans Zimmer scores. And yes, he was also one of the additional composers for the first two parts of Transformers. Not all Remote Control composers are suitable for being the main composer. I also don't want to hear music from the same people all the time. That's why I'm open to film music. I've been listening to film music for almost 30 years! So I know what I'm talking about. Of course you cannot know everything. But I don't want to know everything either. In my opinion, Lorne Balfe should take a slightly more careful look at his work and not deliver one score after the next. That's why his music is so monotonous. Rarely do you experience surprises and unfortunately there are not really many in 6 undergrounds. The drums on "Tons of Blood" don't sound bad, but it's better that way. It reminds me of the gaming soundtrack by Need for Speed &#8203;&#8203;- The Run by Brian Tyler. There are great drums in there. So don't take it personally, just accept it.

This is Balfe’s best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we don’t get to hear much I think.
It’s been interesting reading posts about Balfe doing Bond.Has he confirmed yet if he is ?


NotSoAnonymous2019-11-13 17:32:06
Well, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.


Anonymous2019-11-13 22:36:22
lol no he’s not


HunterTech2019-11-14 01:37:02
The report about Romer leaving wasn't even confirmed, so I think it's just people wanting the expected to happen at this point.


;)2019-11-14 18:34:27
Neither Romer or Balfe are scoring Bond 25


NotSoAnonymous2019-11-15 17:36:12
Well, unless you have a source, or can point to a credible publication reporting Romer is not scoring it, I think it is safe to assume (for now) that the composer announced and still listed on the official website as the composer for the film is in-fact the composer for the film..

He wouldn't be my personal choice for the job, but I am not going to ignorantly pretend that he isn't currently the hired composer.


;)2019-11-15 21:20:21
Ok.

Might want to start believing those “rumors” lol.


HunterTech2019-12-19 00:26:25
With the amount of projects Zimmer has for 2020 already, there's a lot time he'd have to squeeze in if he needed to get job done by April. Balfe at least looks to be done with his current slate of upcoming movies, so he has a higher chance.


JD2019-12-19 01:40:21
What is your source?


HunterTech2019-12-19 09:21:03
Well that's what I want to ask the others, since Zimmer's 2020 line up has definitely been confirmed (WW84, Dune, Top Gun 2, Spongebob 3 (as of now)). With Balfe, Military Wives had its TIFF screening back in September, and Bad Boys For Life is just next month. So that gives him barely enough time to squeeze in, if he were to be hired.

“The Alethiometer” might be my new favorite track of the year. Those chord progressions scream JNH/Jerry Goldsmith and are pretty similar to Balfe’s work on Beyond: Two Souls/Blackwood.

I’m glad to see this score getting some love, I’ve always been annoyed with how people seem to slam Balfe for his more workmanlike efforts while ignoring the stronger scores he has done over the years.

Okay, so I'm not the biggest Balfe fan, but when he does it right, I have to recognize it.

And this is a really good example of the best he can achieve. Tracks like the main theme, The Alethiometer, The Strength of Gyptians or A Plea To Fate show how great he can be, and makes me wonder why he would not use this style more often in his scores.

Anyway, I cannot wait to hear how he develops and uses the themes when the score album is released!


Ds2019-11-05 23:33:28
I fully agree. 2019 has been a bit disappointing musically, and I have the impression this score finally shakes things up a bit! Possibly a shot at my favourite of the year. Looking forward to the rest of the show & the music!


superultramegaa2019-11-06 03:44:31
Damn. After skimming the album, you might be right about this being a great product from Balfe. Jesus, woodwinds, beautiful string and choral writing, melody, and an overall creative sound pallet. The only other score of his that gets close to this quality IMO is Genius Season 2.

There are a few moments where the electronics sound ugly and overbearing, but they're thankfully pretty sparse.

I fully agree that we need more of this Lorne style!

Ro reply Replies: 0 || 2019-11-05 17:22:15
Alethiometer is a peculiar track and my favorite cue of the album.

It starts off with a Piano motif that is not awfully different from James Newton Howard's central theme for Signs. From there it briefly touches upon the Watergate Piano chord from Frost/Nixon. There are also times when I am almost ready to hear something from "Da Vinci Code" though it doesn't fully materialize.

The orchestral parts have hints of "Sky Ferry" from the Golden Compass by Alexandre Desplat too. I am also hearing a faint reference to the chorus melody of "Arriving At Atoll" from Waterworld.

What a journey!

I have to admit I totally eat all my negative words about Balfe. This is a fantastic and innovative score, full of great melodies, full orchestrations, vocal work, and innovative instrumentation. Clearly, he has spent a lot of time developing this. A clear sense of thematic purpose and melody!
