Hello Doponko,<br><br>I've been searching for this soundtrack for years and have been unable to find it anywhere. Wound you consider sending me these tracks or telling me where I can find a cd?<br>Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!<br><br>I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.I'm greatly surprised that the great Herbie Hancock is also in this terrific scoreYes, Paesano is a good choice, but for Ramin it would be better..... He would be the better option in my eyes ;)John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.
I can't play the music, although I did play it before, what happened?And it sounds great! It also seems like the original end titles are included as well.<br><br>One interesting thing, the mix sounds a bit different in the samples. The percussion and brass are both more pronounced I think.I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.There's a sample of this cue on their site :)FUCK! :(
Finally, LaLaLand has done it! Many kudos to them!!!! One my holy grails as well. I've been waiting for this for ages!<br>Take my money LaLaLand Records! Just take it!John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories.  There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention.  Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade.  Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?"  If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.fail*
Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(Saw Patriots Day, really liked it. But the score was lacking. Really wish Jablonsky had done this one.The sticker on the album says: <br>"The best of Hans Zimmer<br>+ selected by him*<br>+ new arranged<br>+ new recorded with top stars"<br><br>*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme. <br><br>Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.<br><br>2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to. <br><br>I think that is about it.Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.

Is this the only score that actually conducted by Hans?

Is The Island cue that's playable here based on another work? I'll admit my familiarity with Hans' older work is limited, but to me it sounds like nothing else of his, really. Awesome cue, either way. :)

(And FYI, I'm specifically asking about the part beginning at 0:55 or so)

Wonderful score. It is I would say the best score of HZ's early years. It's a must have for everybody. Thank you for those two gargantuan pieces of music. I love it. Also love, that the 2 tracks sum up to something like 42 mins...
