Guys are you serious ? Iím currently reading comments about how Modern Warfare 2 is in the score. In Bad Boys for Life you can heard firstly  : The Rock, Speed, Bad Boys, ... MW2 is just a reharsch of these score instead with some Black Hawk Down soundscape. Have you heard any MV score post 2005? &#128517;As much as I think that the choice of movie Powell makes, which up till now have created amazing scores, I do wish we'd get more than 1 score of his every year. Even if the quality is like Solo or The Hidden WorldI actually don't know which I prefer. I guess nostalgia might be clouding my judgement, since the album version was the one used on the DVD menu. Both are still pretty good, nonetheless.Yeah no contest IMO, it's much more dynamic and more "Powell-y" compared to that Superman-style rhythm he uses in the album version and elsewhere in the score. Must have been a hasty last-minute redo or something to not show up on the album.The films Powell is currently choosing allow him to write much more interesting music than your average Marvel movie... ;)<br><br>Excited for Call of the Wild in a few weeks.
Does anyone know what the correct chronological tracklist for this would be?Honestly, i think i will be that few people who likes Lights Out. But his best horror score is A Cure for WellnessThatís a cool choice, Iím hoping for something more like ďItĒ and less like ďLightís OutĒ.Wallfisch has compose the score for The Invisible Man, another horror score for the best guy today for the jobPowell has his personal reasons, but I sincerely hope he comes around to do another superhero score again, especially for MARVEL since his style isnít fit for the likes of DC as of now.
I like the film version of Bathroom Titles better.LOL!<br><br>He has had some experience with animated projects, Iím interested to hear him do more diverse projects like that.I will never understand when people can't stand people opinions and 'attack' them.<br><br>If some loves Trent Reznor (i hate the guy's music), is his opinion and i no one to say nothing about it.Bring on the remixes!LOL!!! You have no idea about film music<br>====================<br><br><br>It's his opinion, my friend.<br><br>And his opinion is equally as valid as the opinion of someone who thinks this score is the worst crap ever. Why? Because when it comes to appreciating art (movies, books, music...) it is all completely subjective. <br><br>I always use this example: I have two friends - educated, family men - who have seen The Godfather. One of them thinks it's one of the greatest movies ever, while the other one barely finished watching it. <br><br>At the end of the day, just because a group of people (film critics, film buffs, etc) proclaim that something is "good" or "bad" doesn't mean that it's automatically a holy statement that everyone should agree with. <br><br>We are all different :)<br><br>Cheers!
Judging by the clips of this movie, it will be a good choice.<br><br>I can't wait for this one, after seeing those clipsAccording to Film Music Reporter, Tom is also scoring Scoob!MMichaels LOL!!! You have no idea about film musicFantastic score by Balfe.Best action score writer to come from RCP since Powell for sure .It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabinís score.<br>=======================<br><br><br>Well said! <br><br>Agreed.

Wait! Hybrid Soldier, you've said on the page of the album for White Fang, that Toys were Nick Glennie-Smith's first work as additional music composer after K2 with Hans Zimmer. If it's true, that why his credit's not here?


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-16 10:27:41
And i want to know one more thing. Oh, my God! So many famous musicians: Anne Dudley, Enya, Peter Gabriel, Steve Howe (from Yes), Wendy & Lisa, Seal, Hollywood Studio Musicians, and of course, Zimmer, Horn, Bob Daspit, Jeff Rona, Ryeland Allison... How they're managed to bring together?


Hybrid Soldier2017-02-16 18:02:30
Nick never worked on that one, I said Nick's first work at MV was Radio Flyer.

And for how long will you continue acting like some overexcited puppy asking questions after questions which basically... no one will answer ?


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-16 18:18:55
Oh, i'm sorry! I'm just interested in all this things, mainly because i'm a musician. I never thought that i asking questions which no one will answer. But, yeah, i'm excited. And not only for Hans Zimmer.


Hybrid Soldier2017-02-16 21:58:42
No prob lol but slowwww down a bit !! :P


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-16 22:19:11
Yeah, that would be my advice too. Nobody minds you asking questions, I think, but if you ask like twenty a day the way you've been doing, then a) people will get annoyed, and b) it's less likely the question will even be seen, and ergo less likely that you will get a response.

Ok!

I love Toys. It celebrates innocence and the music is really beautiful. I just would like to know the lyrics to Let Joy and Innocence Prevail

Currently it's difficult to buy this soundtrack, but ZTT Records' MySpace has full song of "Closing Of The Year."

And here's the lyrics. It was mostly completed thanks to the forum members :)

THE CLOSING OF THE YEAR
(Written by Trevor Horn and Hans Zimmer)

If I cannot bring you comfort
then at least I bring you hope
For nothing is more precious
than the time we have and so

We all must learn from small misfortunes
count the blessings that are real
Let the bells ring out for Christmas
at the closing of the year
Let the bells ring out for Christmas
at the closing of the year

(Children chorus)
Up on the knees of a soldier
made of parts of wood, with wind in your hair
Silver bells on a stolen reindeer
as we race to the castle over there

If I cannot bring you comfort
then at least I bring you hope

Now all the winter bells are ringing
hear them echo through the snow
And the children's voices singing
on the streets so far below

This is a time to be together
and the truth is somewhere here
Within our love for people
at the closing of the year

(Seal's solo)
We'll walk innocent
with all of the pain
and all of the patience
and all of the way
and all of us right
and all of us say
Love one another
We'll fly in the arms of time
walk in the waves, never fall
Don't fall
(at the closing of the year)
at the closing of the year

If I cannot bring you comfort
then at least I bring you hope

Then at least I bring you hope

I LOVE TOYS! I think that this is Hans Zimmer's best soundtrack! Ever! Nothing can top Toys, the most whimsical, quirky, fun and sometimes heart warming film ever made! And the Music Compliments the film greatly! I play Alsatia's Lullabye when I go to sleep, and I listen to it all the time! Excellent work, and I think the score for Toys is a credit to all involved, as is the film!
