Woops! Made a typo. <br><br>What was used in the final trailer *wasn't* exactly what ended up being used in the film ;)Sounds like a suite<br><br>And wasn't it only the final trailer that used material from the actual score? It was Lockdown's theme. But what was used in the trailer was exactly what ended up being used in the film.@MrTweedy <br>That is true, and you do get the guitars in "Barbarian Horde" (not sure where else though).<br><br>I have to admit, as revolutionary as Gladiator was at the time, I think it's one of Zimmer's more overrated scores. Not that I necessarily think it's bad, but IMO both Last Samurai and King Arthur show a much stronger balance of themes and action writing, yet unfortunately were never as recognized by the mainstream the same way Gladiator was.That synth in the main theme! I didn't expect that. It's really good.@mpolonest123<br>Actually, there's a small hint at the "spaniard" guitar theme after the sequence where he escapes his execution (track "Homecoming" on the More Music album).
No Transformers Last Knight thread yet so posting here. The official site got updated with a new piece of music, and holy hell, it's amazing!<br>www.transformers movie.com<br><br>Also pretty sure the last trailer's music was from him too, Age of Extinction had his scores on almost every trailer.I like all the posters they released for the film.<br>But if someone don't like them it's fine.<br>I will agree with you Dimitris, I too want the main poster as the cover for the album.Epic score from Harry!https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_of_the_Caribbean:_Dead _Men_Tell_No_Tales<br><br>The main poster of the film is the best yes. I hope they put it for the album cover.Is this poster bad? It's one of the best I have seen.<br><br>https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5560e1bbe4b0cc18bc643 12d/5562957ce4b03107de7ca6ca/58f0476a5016e1685c5e99af/149214 1933102/17015800_10154981836668830_529268610073059017_o.jpg
Hopefully the artwork looks good, because the posters they released for this film are so bad and ugly.Release date 26th of May, it says under "more details".<br><br>Although maybe you should ask the 704 people who have voted on it already, because they seem to have heard the score!Beautiful musicFirst episode was really good . Lorne's score is amazing and totally different . Looking forward to this score release .Any news on the album?
Call me crazy but I really would have been interested to see what Tom's Godzilla would sound like under the direction of someone with good musical taste such as Dougherty.<br><br>Not really a huge fan of Desplat's work but I would definitely kill to hear Douglas Pipes take on this project.@Edmund Hahahahaha..... yeah, I've always heard that too. Even the chopping string section in the background of both pieces is vaguely similar.Zimmer did some additional music on this?Sounds to me like the big dramatic Bach-like theme at the very end of the Kraken. Only a slight similarity though :pWow Edmund, I'm impressed... where do you hear this theme in The Kraken? They sound like completely different pieces of music to me :-D

Holy shit. So I just listened to this album on YouTube and it's FANTASTIC. So much 80s cheeseball fun. And the first track even has the riff in it that would go on to become the First Born theme and then, later on, way way way down the road, 160 BPM from Angels & Demons. It's really incredible how distinct Hans' voice is even as early as 1983. As much as I enjoy the vocals, I'd kill to get instrumental versions of some of these songs.

Yo dude. Thanks for pointing this out. Listening to it now. Sounds excellent.


isildur2017-03-23 15:19:37
And in the Track 4 isn't that a bit of Inception?


Dimitris Krommidas2017-03-23 16:46:17
Where do you listen to this guys? In my channel? I have the album in my channel.


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-23 16:59:11
Yeah, Dimitris, it was your channel. Thanks man! :)


Dimitris Krommidas2017-03-23 17:09:09
Thank you.


isildur2017-03-23 18:12:25
Wow! I thought I recognized the name of the channel. Awesome dude. Thank you so much.


Dimitris Krommidas2017-03-23 18:26:19
Thanks

Oh yeah it's great, Moonlight In Vermont even has Beckett's Death from POTC 3 !


Anonymous2017-03-24 03:01:42
Moonlight also reminds me of parts of Chappie!

So that's where the original sources of one of the fragments of Beckett's theme for the third Pirates. Cool!

if for whatever reason zimmer , cann, griff decides not to release the spies album, there will forever be something of great importance missing in the music indistry! just the fact that is never was released does it even more interesting.there are still a lot of people around the world who would be very excited if it happened.it would make their career complete, and such great material should not be forgotten.pleeeeeeeeease!!!!!!

I was a great time and a pleasure to work with such a great team on the Helden Project.I cant wait for the album to get released.

I also heard for the first time the tracks "Holding On" and "Stranded" and was greatly impressed. They seem timeless at this present day.

I have a feeling that eventually the Spies album will be released. I guess it was meant to be. Hans, Warren and Zaine deserve this as a testament to their creativity, ambitions and friendship. The music contained in this album and Zaine's albums and singles was where it all started for Hans.

Vielen danke fur die Musik von drei Helden! Der Moment fur Spies ist heute und immer und immer!

I recently heard that efforts to release Spies are continuing... been waiting years for this! Hope it finally sees the light of day.

Recently several videoclips and live-clips from Zaine Griff are added top YouTube and can be watched there. As you might know Hans Zimmer played in Zaine's band, was with him on stage at Zaine's final Grand Finale concert in The Venue London and Hans also arranged a lot of Zaine's music on zaine's second album Figures. Also two of the tracks from SPIES are added (as "audiomovie") on YouTube.

Are copies of this bootleg still available anywhere - as far as you know? Was it only released in 1984 on vinyl? Or maybe later (also) on CD? I think two tracks are missing from the complete album: the first track "--Mother Company"-- and the last instrumental track "--Eva"--, that should have come after "--Movies for Eva"--. I know that for a long time the Ultravox fanclub tried to convince Hans Zimmer to release the CD. Several times it was close to release -as I understood. But until now it is not there? And why was the album never released? It would have been released on their own label ZiCa records 001 (Zimmer/Cann), but it never was. Do you know the reason. Only the 7"-- and 12"-- of the Single "--Holding On"-- (with beautiful vocals of Zaine Griff and Linda Jardim) was released, with two songs on the B-side. But I think that was never really distributed. Beside that I think in the credits you should mention that Zaine Griff did the vocals on the most songs ( The Ball, Holding On, Stranded, Borderline. Movies for Eva) and also Hugo Vereker (Young &-- Scientific and - I think - My Killing Hand) and excellent female vocals of Linda Jardim on most of the tracks. I think it's worthwhile to mention that! One last question: who were the writers of the songs? Were they all written bij Zimmer/Cann or where some songs written by Zaine Griff? And what was the work done by Steve Rance - also mentioned large on the cover of "--Holding On"--. I thought he was technician or did he do other things in the Helden Project as well?
