Winter Soldier sounds almost nothing like Kingsman<br>Civil war maybeYes! "No Time for Emotion" and "Not In Vain" contain John Denver's "Country Roads"! No Time for Emotion is Mark Strong singing it like in the film!! I'm so happy they included this! :DDoes anyone know a chronological order or is this chronological??"Mutant and Proud" (from X-Men First Class) was used on the scene when Harry's gets back his memories. Am i right?Now I'm even more excited for this!
Thanks !Here's the interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBALBRBmDfg<br><br>He starts talking about the score, quite passionately, at 05:50:)<br><br>Yeah that's probably the case! I think Wallfish is a great composer so I am sure it'll sound great!Probably. The first Kingsman sounds just like Winter Soldier.Any link to that ITW ? :)<br><br>Yeah Hans probably wrote the main ideas and probably a bunch of the big cues but Wallfisch wrote a good chunk of it... :)There's an interview where the director talks about the score being brilliant and he says Walfischs name before Zimmers so we can guess that zimmer being busy with the tour didn't have time to do that much on this score so this will be a mostly wallfish score.
Is it just me or is Poppy’s theme the same thing as Jack and Jill’s theme from puss n boots?I have no idea, it's been there since July, could be...<br><br>Check the featurette that came out a few days ago, "The World of Blade Runner", in it I think is definitely score material !interessting... i really think it can be a HZ/ BW / JJ track, it doesn't sound that commercial and basicRandy is obviously wrong and an idiot in my point of view.Just watched the movie and it was awesome, well not as great s the first one, but still very entertaining.<br><br>As for the score, by now I have just listened to it in the movie and there worked perfectly, I would say even better than in the first one, with some old themes and some very good new themes, specially I love the Poppy theme.<br><br>Now I will listen to the album to see what tracks are we missing but it looks like a really complete pack.
Haven't had a chance to listen to this one. Are you saying the tunes presented on album are not recorded with live musicians? If true then that would come as a surprise as I see some names in the full credits above that are associated with orchestra recordings, including Gavin Greenaway as the conductor.maybe quality is also not the correct word. its the function of the music. i just think the music of Armageddon is much stronger in its function as a filmscore than Pirates III. i also think the themes are stronger and rabins main theme is used in a wide range. but this also a matter of taste ofc.Yeah, but the quality of the acting beneath the score doesn't affect the quality of the music.I guess that's for the Statesmen. Would have preferred an all-out Western sound for them to contrast with the Bond-type music for the Kingsmen...that would have been fun!Great fun score. It has everything I expected. Although that country vibe in some tracks is nice not really my cup of tea.

As an accomplished composer/musician/performer, I feel compelled to enter a comment. I saw “Matchstick Men” shortly after it was released on DVD. 2004, I think. And I write this as an individual whose brain has cataloged a SURPLUS of music over many years.

I remember distinctly watching the "making of matchstick men" where Ridley Scott gave Hans such a hard time about the score. And again, as someone who has such a catalog of music in the brain, I have found myself humming or whistling "THIS" score over and over in the last 4 years. With no likely end in sight. It's catchy. It's contagious. And it's my opinion. I even caved and got some ring tones. (Shocked all my colleagues.) I’m more curious to what the rejected scores sounded like. Maybe he used them for other films. Take that Mr. Scott!

Since, I have been more aware of Mr. Zimmer's works over the last 4 years and now I have a clearer understanding of why some of my favorite films (before and since “Matchstick Men”) are some of my favorite films, i.e. “Mission Impossible II” & “Gladiator”. Answer – “Zimmer scores”. And really, if you take away the score, "Matchstick Men" as a film, is average at its best. The score, is what makes this film. Period!! Maybe that's why Ridley pushed Hans like he did?

It’s no wonder that someone would create a web site of this like. As well, he is now someone I would like to converse and/or collaborate before I go to the other side. John Williams, take a vacation. There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is Hans!!

Hi everyone! I've got this question: some days ago I was listening to this score and I realised that the first part of track "Weird Is Good" has a particular style, something I've only heard in Gotan Project's songs: so, Is that an omage by Hans Zimmer to this fantastic (IMHO) group?

thanks

bye

Hmm... the only thing track 8 (Mines) makes me think about is Journey to the Line, from The Thin Red Line. Man, how obvious is it which track was the temp-score?!?

ABC reply Replies: 0 || 2005-08-27 00:00:00
I think the reason why Track 8 sounds like Journey to the Line is because it should sound like Journey to the Line --)

track 8 is what made the film what it is.
