So Hybrid, care to tell us why you randomly deleted comments talking about the leaked recording sessions?Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?
been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.
Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>You fools, the tracklist was but a scam. The tracks simply wanted to EAT you.Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.<br><br>I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.<br><br>I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.Not to disagree for its own sake, but I think Powell has been up there with the greatest film composers since the first HTTYD score. I just wish he'd take on more projects.Yeah, Jesus. This is a prime example of why I'm tempted to think John Powell is more talented than even Williams (yes, I went there).
There's so, so many great themes in the HTTYD scores. And he almost never lets a moment go by where he isn't stating or restating or developing one or more of them (although honestly that's true of a ton of Powell's scores and not an exclusive feature of HTTYD). You can never get bored listening to these, there's always something interesting around the next corner.I got confirmation HGW only wrote Haitian House Shootout (with the help of Mel Wesson). The same ideas were edited into the shorter cue Zoepound, so I'd say you can add this one to his credits.<br><br>Credits on IMDB mentions Paul Linford on the Main Titles.<br><br>Trevor Morris helped Jablonsky on the Ferrari Causeway Chase.<br>Jablonsky worked, for sure, on the Hallway and Helicopter Inserts.<br><br>100% sure Rabin worked on Tapia, Tapia Pissed Off, The Stuff, Wiretap Results, Ocean, Dead Bodies #2, Heart to Heart, Breaking Into Mortuary, Syd's Cover Is Blown, Tapia Has Syd (without Inserts), Prep for Tapia Sneak, Cuba Chase, Guantanamo (those tracks are on the Rabin only-bootleg).Hoping for the Rocketman score to get a release. Loved the score in the movie. Any updates on this ?Additionally, for anyone interested, I've managed to come up with a final list of themes from the series that I believe to be mostly accurate.<br><br>HTTYD 1: Hiccup & Toothless, The Friendship ostinato, Viking Theme, Viking "B" Theme, Dragons, Berk, The Dragon Tamer (Hiccup's unique qualities), Vikings & Dragons, Astrid<br><br>HTTYD 2: Loss, Exploration/Hiccup's Maturance, Drago, Hiccup & Valka, The Alpha, Stoick & Valka, The Chief<br><br>HTTYD 3: The Furies ostinato, Love, The Dragon Liberators, Moving On, The Hidden World, Toothless & The Light Fury, Grimmel, Dragon Trappers<br><br>A list more impressive than Star Wars, and with almost every new theme returning for the next film, while keeping most of the base themes. A masterful achievement by John Powell and his crew, as others have said!Just finished watching the movie, and while it's not much more than fine, it's sure as hell better than every other Star Wars movie that's come out since The Force Awakens (minus the ugly fucking visuals). <br><br>However the score is absolutely amazing. Powell's adaptation and development of the new Han Solo theme from Williams is flawless, the callbacks to other themes from the series are mostly appropriate (and good on him for not using the Force theme once!) and Powell's original material is fresh and exciting in a way that even Williams himself hasn't been able to pull off with the new films. <br><br>Powell might very well be up there with the greatest film composers if he continues to produce work like this from now on (which from HTTYD 3 seems very possible!)

Is there any right tracklist from the recording sessions???

Mike reply Replies: 4 || 2014-01-05 22:17:47
Was this score similar to Rush (a band score where everyone writes everything) or is it indeed mostly Zimmer? It's older, and his older scores tend to be more traditional in the crediting area. :P


Marc2014-01-06 02:36:53
Nope, Heitor Pereira & Jeff Rona did write themes here. I see no bands, except the VA songs.


Magnus Rex2014-01-06 04:21:30
You misunderstand what Mike meant; I believe he is at least partly right, some of the music was scored like a jam session, where music was improvised that later became honed into the score. Mike didn't mean actual bands did music for the film.


Mr Tweedy2014-01-06 13:15:59
That's right... They were like a band jamming in the studio. The music was recorded and some of it ended up in the film, usually re-arranged depending on each sequence's needs.
But basically, HZ wrote the main themes (Still, Vale of Plenty, Tribal War, Leave No Man Behind) but it was all played and arranged by the band itself during the jamming sessions or later.
Some cues are credited to other musicians (Pereira for Mogadishu Blues, Rona for Bakara, Wesson for the ambient part from Chant...). "Ashes to Ashes" starts with some kind of improvisation on the electric cello by Martin Tillman, then the band starts to play all together.

There's a lot of unused / additional music that never ended up in the film.


Mike2014-01-06 21:35:10
Thank you, Mr. Tweedy.

I'm really curious as who wrote "Hunger" ;P


Mike2013-11-10 03:30:44
I'm curious who did what in this entire score. I imagine off the bat that Zimmer did "Leave No Man Behind" and "Tribal War", but wasn't this score basically a bunch of jam sessions?


MacArthur2013-11-10 17:35:44
I think hunger is Zimmer isn't it?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 18:02:09
MacArthur, unless you're willing to substantiate that claim, all anyone is going to read is "I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT ANYTHING" on a post with your name on it.


MacArthur2013-11-10 21:17:21
My question is why wouldn't it be? let's just put it that way.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 21:48:02
There's no reason why it wouldn't be...just like there's no reason why it would. My point is, if you don't have anything more than an "I think," without any reasoning or argument to back it up, then you're contributing jack shit to the discussion. It's like the internet version of talking because you like the sound of your own voice.

When Hybrid says a cue is by a certain composer, we listen because he has access to information we don't have. With you it's just random gut feelings and opinions without any convincing substance behind it whatsoever. Hence, why should we listen to you?


MacArthur2013-11-10 22:01:55
When did Hybrid say that it wasn't Zimmer. I didn't go against what he said If he says it, it's fine with me.

Does it say anything about Hunger being by a different Composer?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 22:25:08
There's four additional music guys up there, so there is absolutely ZERO guarantee that the cue is by Zimmer alone. Similarly, there is ZERO guarantee that the cue ISN'T by Zimmer alone. Until we know more for sure, there is also ZERO point in slinging your "I thinks" around.


MacArthur2013-11-10 23:17:27
Yeah That I know but the guy on top seem to say that Zimmer didn't have a hand in it at all.

That's what baffled me I wasn't trying to throw in my opinion on it.

Combination of OST, songs used in the movie, music from the DVD bonus and some promotional cues from the musicians of the score... Everything is edited/chopped so that it looks "new", but, it's definitely fanmade.
