Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...
The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.
I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolingerthats trueCan't think of a more meaningless and laughable award than the Oscar.

Couple of interesting things.

Williams in the film cuesheet seems to have been credited only for "his" cues but never for others' cues (even if they use either old Star Wars music or new JW Solo material) :

THE HAN SOLO THEME (JW)

This is what I could find. Some of the cues I couldn't find at all like Family Stories A, Gonna Be A Pilot or To Tatooine Pt 2 probably have all one thing in common : I guess they're 100% credited to JW.

That cuesheet matches in fact with the credits I posted above that come from JP's team.

Interestingly, the 2018 Album does credit Williams very specifically on every cue any of his material is used (The % come from the fact Powell & Mounsey are ASCAP, Williams, Willis & Sener are BMI) :

ADVENTURES OF HAN (HAN SOLO THEME)
JW 100%
MEET HAN
JP 28% JW 72%
CORELLIA CHASE
JP 50% JW BS 50%
SPACEPORT
JP 55% JW AW 45%
FLYING WITH CHEWIE
JP 48% JW AW 52%
TRAIN HEIST
JP 92% JW 8%
MARAUDERS ARRIVE
JP 55% JW BS 45%
CHICKEN IN THE POT
JP 100%
IS THIS SEAT TAKEN?
JP 77% JW 23%
L3 & MILLENNIUM FALCON
JP 86% JW 14%
LANDO’S CLOSET
JP 100%
MINE MISSION
JP 98% JW 2%
BREAK OUT
JP 78% JW 22%
THE GOOD GUY
JP PM 74% JW AW 26%
REMINISCENCE THERAPY
JP 30% JW 70%
INTO THE MAW
JP 47% JW BS 53%
SAVAREEN STAND OFF
JP 94% JW 6%
GOOD THING YOU WERE LISTENING
JP 100%
TESTING ALLEGIANCE
JP 51% JW AW 49%
DICE & ROLL
JP 65% JW 35%

It's not unusual to have different credits for an album VS the same music in the film, depends on the deal that was made.

Also, some incoherences here, like Willis credited for Lando's Closet in the cuesheet but not in the OST for the same track. But you can't take the cuesheet for absolute truth, additionals did a bit more than that, not necessarly credited, cause it's not as significative to program some percs on a track VS writing 90% of it ! :) Like Willis isn't officially credited for L3's Sacrifice (very end of Extra Deluxe Mine Mission) but has it on his website. Same for Batu with L3 & Falcon. So they had more to do than just what they are credited for... :)

Also, if you want a breakdown of the Deluxe VS 2018 OST :

THE ADVENTURES OF HAN => SUITE (NOT IN DELUXE)
MEET HAN => 1M1 MEET HAN
CORELLIA CHASE => 1M4-5 CORELLIA CHASE

FLYING WITH CHEWIE => 2M13 CHEWIE UNTAMED

CHICKEN IN THE POT => 3M18S CHICKEN IN THE POT (ALT VOX)
IS THIS SEAT TAKEN ? => 3M25 SABACC GAME
L3 & MILLENNIUM FALCON => 3M26 L3 & MILLENNIUM FALCON
LANDO'S CLOSET => 4M28 LANDO'S CLOSET
MINE MISSION => 4M30B-5M30C-31 EXTRA DELUXE MINE MISSION (FIRST HALF)
BREAK OUT => 4M30B-5M30C-31 EXTRA DELUXE MINE MISSION (SECOND HALF)
THE GOOD GUY => 6M34 SAVAREEN TENT + 6M36-37-38 QI'RA KNOWS A BIT MORE THAN THAT (EDITED) + 6M39-40 DOUBLE-DOUBLE CROSS (EDITED)
REMINISCENCE THERAPY => 5M32-33A-B-C KESSEL RUN IN LESS THAN 12 PARSECS (FIRST HALF)
INTO THE MAW => 5M32-33A-B-C KESSEL RUN IN LESS THAN 12 PARSECS (SECOND HALF)

Wow!!!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 6 || 2020-11-19 22:44:51
So if people are wondering if there's anything to keep from the 2018 album :

The Adventures Of Han, JW's suite.

Marauders Arrive has an alternate insert at the end (Deluxe Train Heist).

Chicken In The Pot has an alternate singer.

Good Thing You Were Listening is an alternate (Maul's Call - Parting Ways)


Scorefan2020-11-19 23:29:54
Thanks Hybrid


jjstarA1132020-11-20 16:26:56
I'm a little surprised that "The Adventures Of Han" was tossed aside here.


Edmund Meinerts2020-11-20 18:14:27
Rights issue. The rest of the score was recorded in London, but Williams recorded his suite in LA with a different orchestra, so it would have been prohibitively expensive to include it here and have to pay the royalties all over again.


mpolonest123 2020-11-20 18:43:44
Major props to Powell and co. for pushing to have this released. As good as the OST was, this Deluxe Edition really exposes how intelligently JP handled the new and old themes. Also have to love the source music, it completely fits with Williams’ eccentric source pieces. Only real gripe for me is the End Titles Suite, which feels more like a mish-mash of cues than an individual piece.


Edmund Meinerts2020-11-20 19:54:55
Yeah it's a bit that Powell seemed to be focusing a lot on that End Titles suite even though it's just an edit job. He hyped it so much that it got me half believing he had somehow recorded an all-new end credits suite that never ended up in the film, but no, it's just the edit job. Ah well, I'll just replace it with the Williams suite from the original album.

"Mimban Battle" is my pick of the new music. That Imperial March statement (followed by a cool choral statement of the Beckett/Gang theme) is so good. Powell really brings out how nasty and oppressive that theme can be, and coming right after the upbeat propaganda source cue the contrast is hilarious and extremely effective. Expectations vs reality.


jjstarA1132020-11-20 20:48:20
Edmund Meinerts: Ah, that's why.

mpolonest123: Yeah, Williams really set a gold standard with The Force Awakens' end credits suite which I hoped subsequent Star Wars films would follow, so this one is kind of underwhelming. But it's worth having on album anyway for having the proper fanfare ending and Han's theme at 1:13. (Powell's infatuation with sleigh bells really gives this score a holidays vibe!)
