Here's an interview about Last Samurai from Soundtrack.net https: //www.soundtrack. net/content/article/?id=112You can find an interview with Hans on his process for TLS on soundtrack.net somewhere, back in 2003 or 2004The tracklist they posted has 58 tracks and yours contains only 54<br>interesting thing, He never really spoke about Last Samurai. but you have to realize, even when He speaks, its not always the truth. <br><br>The only thing I know, in 2013 doing press for Rush, He really said the hardest job was Last Samurai, well its not true according to himself, if you watch the behind the scenes stuff from Matchstick Men from 2003, right there He says that he was working on 3 huge films, (tears of the sun / Pirates / last samurai) and Mathstick men was the absolute hardest for him.<br><br>also Ed Zwick talks about working with Hans on the dvd commentary sometimes, but nothing really fancy.<br><br>Im sure there is an interview for this film with him, since he was at the premierI am struggling to find an interview where Hans speaks about this soundtrack. Does it even exist? <br>I spent the last hours digging but nothing. I always desired to hear some comments about it, like he does for the other works he's done.<br>
I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...<br><br><br>@Mephariel<br>You can find Great Bear Rainforest on bleedingfingersmusic.com under Anze RozmanMondo only offered to send me a return label and a refund. No info yet on if they plan to fix it. :-/Mine arrived today and is definitely sped up.LOL klaus badelt hardly composed pirates 1You know what? I love the booklet credits! Klaus Badelt is the same guy who scored Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.
Thanks Hybrid soldier for the good news<br>I can't wait to see the documental film and hear the score of lorne balfe & hans zimmer.A score will be released.<br><br>You can always count on Lorne for that. It's in the works.What was the last Zimmer documentary score that they released outside of BBC? <br><br>I am still waiting for The Great Bear Rainforest.I hope they can the soundtrack release for "Rebuilding Paradise" composed by Hans zimmer & Lorne balfe, including an original song for the film. I hope there is a possibility that they will release the score.How to get this at all?
Any news about Rebuilding Paradise soundtrack?@Hybrid:<br>Any news about a release for Ron Howard "Rebuilding Paradise" soundtrack by Hans ans Lorne. The documentary airing today. Any info will be much Appreciated.Well I take that part of it back and stand corrected. I have to say the editing choice I think was the right call but won't elaborate here.  I hope we get more Last Samurai someday.  Qobuz at least sells the CD quality version digitally for now.I sent Mondo an e-mail as well. Its definitely sped up.<br>yes i know :/

Comparing the track times listed here, it seems (at first glance) that many of the tracks are edited down from the complete cues as heard on the bootleg. Could the listed track times be simply incorrect, or have edits been made to make the score fit onto four sides? I guess we can find out when the record ships in July.

Additionally, for those without a record player it sucks that a CD release was not possible for La-La Land. Whatever the reasons are for that, it's a bizarre situation that one independent label can release the same material on vinyl but another cannot on CD. Quite perplexing...


Mr Tweedy2020-06-01 09:12:19
Maybe the different time lengths is due to tracks slightly overlapping each other (as in many HZ soundtrack releases)?


Magnus Rex2020-06-02 05:30:44
It could be possible, but there would be too many seconds of overlap between some of these tracks for that to be a possibility in this specific case. I really hope they haven't cut down the tracks to fit on vinyl, otherwise the bootleg will trump it in terms of content.


Per2020-06-02 09:58:33
In sound quality (regardless of what certain peope might say about how great LPs sound; it's an analog format) the bootleg already trumps it I guess...


AnimalCMan2020-07-25 05:40:07
I just received this and can confirm that all the tracks play slightly sped up, you can see how much by comparing the length of Mission: Impossible Theme and Injection which are identical to the original score and both shorter. Iíve informed Mondo about this, but have no idea if or how theyíll handle it. Pretty disappointing as this is one of my favorite Zimmer scores.


Magnus Rex2020-07-25 07:26:43
@AnimalCMan - are they just played faster or is the pitch altered? Or both? If you hear anything from Mondo, I am sure there are others besides me that would like to hear why this was done. Please keep us informed.


AnimalCMan2020-07-25 08:48:35
@Magnus Rex - From what I could deduce comparing runtimes or a few tracks, there seems to be a speed up of about 7% and this also seems to naturally raise the pitch slightly. Whether or not this is easily noticeable to listeners who arenít familiar with the score is debatable, but I personally found transitions in certain tracks to feel off or jarring and especially faster tempo tracks to feel too fast. Iím still not sure how all this could have slipped by Mondo, but Iíll post an update when I hear from them.


Magnus Rex2020-07-26 05:52:27
@AnimalCMan - hmm, that is disconcerting. I have yet to play the album but judging by the track times (which I commented on in May), the producuers may have tried to squeeze more music onto a side by time-compressing it a little. Ideally, you want about 18 minutes per side of a 12" for optimum fidelity (the sound gets worse the nearer to the center the needle drifts) and they are already pushing that if my math is correct. Still, I am just theorizing; it would be interesting to know if Mondo have anything to say about it. Thank you for reaching out to them.


AnimalCMan2020-07-28 21:50:49
Well, Iíve gotten a response from Mondo and this situation is quite interesting. Having talked to their creative director, it sounds like there was no manipulation on their part. They were provided the original session recordings and transferred that exactly as it had been received.

I donít know how the process works of creating a master plate for records and if something could have gone wrong there, but according to what I was told it sounds as if these original recordings are faster, as strange as that sounds. I have no idea why theyíd be faster than the music in the film and on the original soundtrack, but there it is.

Thankfully, it sounded like some follow-up research would be performed on their part, but I donít know what this means in the long run. If anybody else has listened to this, feel free to provide feedback here or directly to Mondo as speaking up when something is wrong is always valuable.


Magnus Rex2020-07-29 04:21:25
Thanks for that, Animal. A very curious situation. I haven't opened my LPs yet and if they are sped up, I have no real interest in playing them. I might drop Mondo a line and see what else they have to say.


James2020-07-31 02:58:54
I sent Mondo an e-mail as well. Its definitely sped up.

Has anyone actually heard the vinyl yet? Hoping someone eventually rips it.

Part of the album is on apple music for the first time

I just found the normal score album on itunes. In which store is the expanded album or part of it?


badbu 2020-07-15 23:16:22
on itunes is just the normal one


Magnus Rex2020-07-25 03:56:37
@Evan - I got it today and will be ripping it. Interested to hear how it sounds.

Cool release but... Vinyl only ! :/

So useless really, yeah... :(


AlitaFan2020-05-27 00:46:56
Why only expanded?

The product page says:
"Mondo Music, in conjunction with Hollywood Records, are proud to present the premiere vinyl pressing of Hans Zimmerís complete score to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2."

So, it's the complete score... isn't it?


HunterTech2020-05-27 02:17:32
Thanks to the way certain cues have to correspond to their album titles instead, it's hard to tell currently if this actually has everything from the film. Doesn't help that certain album suites are most certainly not here, and there's likely alt mixes that could've been included. We'll just have to see.

I get the feeling the reason this is LP only for now is due to Disney (who own Hollywood Records) being allowed to fully oversee this specific release. Any digital and CD re-releases are probably in legal lingo with Paramount, hence why the OST isn't available for streaming currently.


Jasper2020-05-27 10:56:44
Time to buy a record player guys!

Honestly couldn't be more happy about this.


Jerry2020-05-28 07:23:02
Any chance of a CD or Digital release?


Hybrid Soldier2020-05-28 07:42:33
No.


Randy Watson2020-05-28 09:26:06
@Jerry

At the Film Score Monthly message board, MV said that La La Land has been trying to release this one for years but got shot down by the studio. So sadly, a CD release won't happen for now


Nicolas, Webmaster2020-05-28 09:48:36
Next time, we can expect a wax cylinder release... :(


Per2020-05-28 09:59:02
.. and people wonder why there's "bootlegs" out there...


Ds2020-05-28 22:01:59
Why would a studio allow a vinyl release but no CD or digital release? That's utter nonsense. Almost like they're refusing to make money.


Scorefan2020-05-29 15:45:05
LLL made MI 1 Complete. So they are trying to make MI 2 Complete. That could move Varese to make MI 3 Complete. But studio (Disney) don't want it.


Kalman2020-06-06 11:11:04
Nostalgia has its place but when it turns into stupidity it gets annoying. Vinyl only release, c'mon!... I was so happy when CDs replaced vinyls and now we should be glad that that dated and impractical technology comes back? It's a NO for me!
