Search for "filmtracks".Sorry, just found it.Tried that, couldn't find an author named Clemmensen who reviewed it. (I don't know where to look I haven't seen this guy's reviews before).Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.
I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.
He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.

This a truly great score by Zimmer, especially the last two tracks. Have a bit of a gander at the following as it will give you some insight into that awesome Cameroon Border Post track. In any case, I love this music.

Trevor Jones and temp tracking for Cameroon Border Post:
### EDITED ###

The nostalgic days when one would wonder what in Cameroon Border Post was actually done by HZ. I would argue most of it as the Variations is for the earlier part - though SJ did make a career out of music like this track. Bruce Fowler must have done the orchestral carnage in between.

The last half is bombastic HZ magic, though I wonder if Fuqua had Jones' Last of the Mohicans as temp track here.

Where in the blue crap, is the ACTUAL soundtrack. There are tons of music missing even from the expanded score, and the expanded score has fake music that is not on the actual movie. Where, oh were is the actual legit score. I see a bunch of music cues but nowhere to download it. I've been on the search for as long as the movie came out. Can anyone at all help??


Hybrid-Fan2014-08-29 09:31:41
with actual you mean the complete or the recording sessions? you can't buy them, as it isn't offered for buying.

Macejko reply Replies: 7 || 2014-01-07 16:00:57
I seriously think that "Sniper - Border Post" and "The Journey - Kopano Part III" cues are two of the very best Hans has ever composed (if it was him).


Mike2014-01-07 17:23:44
Thanks for pointing them out. They've improved my morning.


MacArthur2014-01-07 17:29:17
This is one of the next one's I want to get.

This one and Spirit.


Mike2014-01-07 17:36:13
My goodness, the end of Sniper - Border Post really is incredible. I can't believe it's been so long since I've listened to it!


isildur2014-01-07 17:46:51
What is this "Sniper-Border Post" track? I don't see anything by that name in the list above.


Mike2014-01-07 17:51:11
From the expanded score.

I just died and went to heaven. The whole reason I dug for the fake expanded score was for the infiltration music, to my disappointment. Now we wait and see for this tearjearking masterpiece to receive its complete score.

Anyone know the source/status of the expanded score? Is it genuine or a DVD rip? Its around 70 mins long.

It's a fake... ;)

Fake meaning a DVD rip?

Even worse than that, it's music not from the film...

With fan made mixes / remixes based on the OST cues themselves...

Really? Can you tell us with cues are, let's say, "re-worked"?
Thank you

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2010-12-28 00:00:00
Ive looked at a couple and they seem genuine, i.e. actual music from the film.

If not, and I am wrong, why do people do this?!

Hi , everyone

Kopano Part III - never listened to something like that. Every single word is Africa, every note is a scream for freedom and love. They sing their hearts to heaven and to the whole world.

Track 9 is EPIC -
It's easily one of the most moving action pieces he's ever composed.
It's a shame that it was practically inaudible in the film due to all the sound effects...
