It's a good score, nice blend between orchestra and synths.<br><br>But, i think WW is more interesting scoreI'm listening right now, one of the best works by Tom, by far.<br><br>Beautiful choir, great action tracks (even there is a great renditions of the themes, Windflower with that version of Shrike's theme is gorgeous) and multiples themes.I'm guessing CONFESSIONS & REGRETS is Tom Sells out his Clone?I have done this for... so many things ! :PThanks so much!

Andrew K worked on both ?! lolMothersbaugh isn't the only person out there to use 80s synth, you know. You are after all, on the website named after perhaps the greatest pioneer of it in terms of film music. <br><br>Also, there is nothing about this film that screams "Thor Ragnarok" ripoff. If anything, the appropriate place to compare is Black Panther- however, as Aquaman and his mythology predates Black Panther by several years, that argument is rendered moot.<br><br> Sure, we have regal similarities (king, set in kingdom, evil half brother) but it literally ends there. The story is quite basic, but nowhere like Ragnarok in its entirety. Ragnarok was about two brothers putting aside their differences to stop their evil sister from unleashing Ragnarok itself, whilst Aquaman is about Arthur Curry being forced to reconnect with his Atlantean heritage, and it's explicitly a quest for him to clear Atlantis from a corrupt, purist ruler who wants to hurt the surface world because of how the humans have been mistreating the seas. Aquaman is very much its own thing, and it doesn't need any such comparisons. And I bet, it will stomp past Ragnarok at the box office overall. <br><br>the main theme is quite similar to Jackman's Kingsman ( the first three note)<br><br>andd..<br><br>I assume it is the studio's mandate for RGW to go (and adapt..or imitate?) Mothersbaugh's Ragnarok with its 80s synth. <br><br>----<br><br>Having seen the movie, i understand why RGW chose the 80s style, because basically, Aquaman is Thor Ragnarok underwater. <br>Dont get me wrong, the visual spectacle is amazing and colorful ( in a good way), some of the cinematography is downright breathtaking,but i really did have a hardtime enjoying this movie in its fullness beacuse the blatant Ragnarok ripping-off here and there.., and dont get me started on the story...<br>Really, the visual did the heavy lifting in this movie ( and it succeeded in overcoming the weak storyline)
Um, is there a freaking Pitbull remix of Africa on here? What the heck?The kind of spacey synth parts reminds me of Blade Runner 2049, and for some reason, Michael Giacchino's work on Star Trek. The more orchestrated triumphant version of the theme is a little like the melodies heard on the Destiny 2 soundtrack.It’s out. Go find it. So far so good!I listened to the track Arthur and it sounds really great. It's an unexpected mix of orchestra and synths (almost 80's style) with a really great theme I suppose is for Aquaman. <br><br>I hope the rest of the score is like this.Here<br><br>https:// itunes.apple.com/nz/album/aquaman-original-motion-picture-so undtrac k /1445500675<br><br>Includes some songs and the track of Joseph Bishara
So is this for Cue sheets or the actual complete score is out?Rupert Gregson-Williams stated on his twitter page that it will be released the 14thSupposedly there is some Joseph Bishara music for the “Trench Sequence”. For anyone who has seen the film was this something original or was it music tracked in from other Bishara scores?Any news on the release date? I've seen both the 14th and 21st. No word from Watertower makes me think the 21st might be the actual date.OK. Aquaman is a great film with some flaws. Momoa, Heard, Wilson, Kidman & Lundgren are very good. IMO the movie has a rocky start, but from a certain scene the movie takes flight and never comes down.<br><br>Gregson-Williams' score is awesome I think. It sounds like a mix between BvS, WW & BR2049 with some gituar, drums & piano here and there. Very curious what kind of release it will get.<br><br>For me Wonder Woman is still the best DCEU movie but Aquaman isn't far behind!!! Solid 8.8

So the film is in theaters (again), and it is doing remarkably well (considering it is a re-release). This is the third time this movie is making its way to the top of the charts, yet even now there is no proper score release. Whatever happened to that "expanded Lion King" album that Hans Zimmer promised? I thought he said "one of these days [he] will be good; [he] will ask Disney 'hey let's do an expanded Lion King score', and [Disney] will say yes."? I remember he said the score is not expensive to release, and he even claimed he is looking Lion King his tapes up, and he is finding things no one has ever heard, etc, etc.

So. Why is it that the newly announced Lion King Deluxe Edition album is once again a song collection? How is it that everything is getting an expanded release of some sort (most of which don't even need one), but this one is still a no-go? I am sure Mr. Zimmer can make it happen if he really wants to. But then again it appears that he is so indifferent about his fans. Oh brother...

supporting you in every phrase you've written.
a shame we haven't something until now. and people moaning about inception and transformers, while these beauties haven't got any love since years.

Well said. I recently purchased the new DVD and it was like falling in love all over again with the score. Fingers crossed that the new Intrada/Disney collaboration might finally do this masterpiece the justice that it's been denied since 17 years. And there couldn't be a better opportunity to coincide it with than the diamond edition Blu-ray release!

> About orchestra

I've never seen any particular name of the orchestra on TLK, but according to the end credits, the music was recorded at:
MEDIA VENTURES (USA), TODD A-O SCORING (USA), ANGEL STUDIOS (UK), BOP STUDIOS (South Africa)
http://www.lionking.org/endcredits.html

And according to DVD commentary the chorus was a mix of London chorus & South African choir.
The songs of voice actors were probably recorded in the US & UK.
Plus, most Disney scores are recorded in America, so I think the orchestra was recorded only in the US (Todd A-O), with musicians of Hollywood, as Ravi said.

I think the purely orchestral material was recorded in the US, so it should be the Hollywood Symphonic Orchestra. The material featuring both African choir and orchestra (both score and the underscore for the songs) was recorded in South Africa and UK so LSO could be the one in UK.

Oah, "This Land" is so much more than life, it is, oh, something so great. Plenty o' feelings, happiness, sorrow, strength and honor, bloody hell, perfect! Thanks, Hans!
Intro of Be Prepared sounds like Nightwish, hmm...

Honestly, I don't see much difference between this CD and the '94 one. At first, I was hoping that it will contain more score tracks than the first CD but, instead, it contains two new tracks which are not very special. So, I don't think that it is greater than the first one. I like the artwork on this one and that's all. So, if they want to release a real Special Edition, then they should add more score tracks and, why not, release a special edition on double CD because a movie with music like this really deserves to be in any music fan collection. I don't say that this CD is a waste of money but, like I said before, it's not very special. So, think twice if you have to choose between this and the '94 one. This is my advice.

I just want to tell you - that would mean, you can download the whole CD without paying anything. That is not okay! Hans Zimmer also has to earn money. Don't be so selfish.
I love your music, Hans Zimmer!
