The FYC score was complete. And it's out since november last yearIs there a complete score out there? If not, don't be surprised there's nothing here yet. Sometimes it takes years before a complete score listing pops on this site.Why no listing here for the complete score?Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!
thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that time
i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?Yeah that is true, can’t argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does “Calypso Must Be Released” sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.
@MrTweedy<br>That’s totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>It’s funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. It’s the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the “rock’n’roll” sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.

This must be the last really great score by HZ. After this, he went into his 'artist phase' (Brian Eno, Paul McCartney - they all have these phases and they all amount to nothing).

Interstellar is fine, as are the Nolan Batmans but this was the downfall of an icon. He became a silly sound designer.

This cue from Trevor Jones beats most HZ stuff single-handedly, being as it is for Ridley Scott. ### EDITED ###

Have a go and appreciate some real talent. Not some Barfe casiotime.


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-27 16:16:18
Not that Trevor Jones isn't a fantastic composer, but is there really a point to just using him to keep dumping on Lorne Balfe? Don't think you're fooling anyone by constantly changing usernames.

Also, I see your Jones and raise you Jones: ### EDITED ###

A true hero! reply Replies: 1 || 2018-02-07 20:44:30
Hans Zimmer is a hero for having to watch this terrible movie multiple times and not going mad! Even with his excellent epic score this movie is unwatchable, now just imagine without music how torturous the experience was. If i was forced to do this i would probably hang myself in front of director's house with a message for him to burn it in the fiery pits of Mordor and save humanity from great pain suffering.

Is anyone familiar with the SOCOM 3 and SOCOM: Combined Assault soundtracks?! I hear similarities those soundtracks and in King Arthur.


Bioscope2017-06-02 05:58:50
I think the sound was more Peacemaker inspired, imho.


SPECTER2082017-06-02 06:39:48
You may be right but I know that James Dooley from SOCOM also helped on King Arthur. Some themes from both albums I can hum and transition seamlessly between each other.


James2017-06-02 10:56:53
And Dooley just went on to compose the music of the games in 2005. King Arthur is from 2004.

Hybrid, I know you mentioned that Hans had written some suites for this film some time back. Do you have any idea about what those are like?

I finally listened to this score for the first time, and it really is one of his best action scores. You can hear all of the major influence on POTC2/Transformers.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-10 00:38:40
No I don't... :/

Ah shoot, between this and Lion King I would love to hear his initial concepts.

I found back Trevor Morris' note about this score. I wrote it in the details, pretty interesting on the process. :)


nvictor2016-09-27 23:52:33
thx Hybrid!


Prott2016-09-28 00:13:58
Great note! Very insightful. :) Thank you Hybrid.


iii2016-09-28 17:29:20
So we have a detailed discussion of how a cue on a HZ score comes together. Will people finally accept the idea that two composers can work on the same cue.

Maybe then we can work on getting people to understand that a credited additional arranger isn't a "ghostwriter".


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-28 21:02:07
Yeah it's interesting, I will try to add more notes from the various collaborators or Hans on his scores. Did the same with Last Samurai...


Ds2016-09-28 21:18:42
Can we listen to this cue "7m44c Final Battle Pt 3" somewhere?


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-28 21:25:02
Above on this very page... :P


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-29 00:33:45
Did anyone ever actually reject the idea that more than one person can work on a cue?


HypeMusic2016-09-30 14:30:17
Some song have multiple writers - so why can't film cues !


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-30 21:51:30
OF COURSE they can - nobody is saying otherwise! O.o

Ds reply Replies: 7 || 2014-12-22 14:39:58
Hybrid, did you ever get the chance to speak about this score with Hans? It is in my opinion one of the (if not THE) most epic stuff he's written, but curiously I've never heard him mentionning it in any interview. And it wasn't featured during the Revealed concerts (the most notable omission, along with The Last Samurai). Didn't he enjoy doing it? Or is it just because this movie has a bad reputation?

I'm asking this because I'm curious, and because I just replayed it for the first time in several weeks, and it blew me away (again).


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-22 14:53:57
I personally like this film a lot and of course the score (Well when you have a score done by Hans with Jablonsky, Morris, Dooley, NGS, RGW, Blake Neely, it's not exactly the ugliest team who worked with Hans ! :D).

I did mention him this score last year, he told me he wrote some suites for it (which are unreleased) which he likes a lot. Not sure he's a huge fan of the film though, the track title "All Of Them!" is actually a joke about a scene that got cut which just made no sense, where Arthur was asking how many saxons were there and he got as an answer "All of them !", and the scoring team had quite a good laugh...


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-22 15:37:25
I think this is one of the most underrated scores in the Zimmer canon, some of his most unadulterated BIG action writing. I see it kind of as a badass take-no-prisoners sibling to the more calm, reflective Last Samurai. I wish (but doubt) that Hans would return to this mode sometime soon.


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-22 15:45:34
It really is the incestuous son of POTC 1 & Last Samurai... And it's direct son is POTC 2... lol


Ds2014-12-22 17:14:14
Edmund, I like your comparison with TLS, so true!

Hybrid, thanks for taking the time to answer :-)

I would love to be able to perform an Inception on Hans, to make him add "Budget Meeting" to his next tour's setlist :p

Lars2014-12-22 19:00:51
Budget Meeting is a fantastic piece of action music as the second half of Woad To Ruin. Both have a fantastic combination of rhythmic percussions and wonderful melodic string parts. good old rcp action music. would love to hear hans doing such music again.


Ds2014-12-23 00:12:10
Lars, you pointed out exactly what I love the most in this soundtrack. By the way, do you like the track "If you love these people" from MoS? It gave me exactly the same sensation as King Arthur (powerful rythmics and majestic melody).

Song of Exile, or 'We will go home' is indeed a much requested and extremely beautiful song, bound to give goosebumps to anyone that hears it.

If there the full 'movie version' of the song is available, please put it up :) A lot of fans can't wait to get their hands on it.

Anyone hear "Hello Beastie" From POTC 2 in the last part of "Do you think I'm Saxon"


MacArthur2013-09-08 19:09:01
Not saying anything bad, Hey if you wrote it you are allowed to use it as much as you want.


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-09 13:42:00
More like the other way around. And yeah, I've always wondered why more people don't pick up on that. It's like three straight minutes of copied material.


Mortifer V.2014-01-24 03:42:36
another interesting similarity, is the fact that "Hold The Ice" has some portions that sound a lot like "Davy's Death" from "At World's End" recording sessions.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-24 09:54:30
Yeah...At World's End owes quite a bit to King Arthur, actually. The beginning of "One Day" is quite similar to the very beginning of the first cue of KA. Davy's Death you mentioned. There's also a tiny little duduk theme in AWE's "Bootstraps/Elizabeth Locker" at 1:19 that's out of KA as well!

Coincidentally, those two are among my Top 3 Zimmer scores (Prince of Egypt is the third).


Mortifer V.2014-01-24 13:36:52
Indeed.

They didn't include the best song "Song of The Exile (We Will Go Home)" because Hans-Zimmer didn't write it, instead it was written by Caitlin Matthews. I'd guess it was either a songs rights or credits discrepancy that prevented it's inclusion.

This is, IMO, one of Hans Zimmer's greatest scores... just listening to the start of 'All of Them!' sends me off into some strange trance-like state where I can feel all my hairs stand on end... the voice, the ominous synth notes playing in the background... I'd buy the CD just for this one track. May you continue your genius work for many years to come, Hans! =)
