i believe that glimpses of the original would have solved the problem ;)Not actually though...probably a bit more Jackman than there actually is, eh? ;)@James<br><br>I have heard the original Vangelis theme but I was referring to a new theme for this new movie.Okay. I'm on the Lorne Balfe bandwagon now. I don't care if this movie is trash, this is a great listening experience, which is sometimes difficult to find in a score these days.Composer credits !
@spectre<br><br>She has a theme! Search for "Rachael's Song"!I agree. It is the most beautiful theme of the previous film and one of the biggest in Vangelis' career.I feel like there should have been a proper theme for Rachael. She was a really important character in both movies and it would have been nice to hear a sad melancholic melody for in her in some kind of Flashback or dream sequence for Deckard.$$$$$$ the soundtrack is FANTASTICSame here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Just listen to all of it !!!! It’s a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The Shell
I totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>Am I the Only one that feels Johánn Johánnsson touch everywere along this score?<br>Truly is the Vangelis reminiscense in each song, but the style is more near to Johánnsson than Wallfisch and of course Zimmer.<br>Could be Denis Villeneuve's suggestion, or maybe Benjamin has study Villeneuve last works, but is unquestionable that 2049 score sounds very Johánnsson.<br><br>Many people these days talking bad about 2049 score (No melodies, No Vangelis, All ambiance...), but the reality is that this work has perfect match with the rest of the film.<br><br>2049 is different to the original Blade Runner. Yes it has the same world and feeling, but is another director's vision, and the music follows (perfectly) the same way.OK, there seems to be a regular edition at amazon and other retailers with the same content (2 CD) for a cheaper price than the limited one. It's nonsense. Will the record label pay me back a couple of bucks? I don't think it is ethical business at all.

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... :/


mpolonest1232016-10-10 01:59:45
Ah shoot, between this and Lion King I would love to hear his initial concepts.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 9 || 2016-09-27 23:18:10
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


Dr. D. Cobb2014-12-22 17:55:08

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).

Ralf reply Replies: 2 || 2010-05-22 00:00:00
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.


ashish2011-09-18 23:49:22

Guy Ritchie is making a new King Arthur movie. Imagine if he asks Hans Zimmer to score it... :E :P


Prott2014-04-19 21:16:51
I can imagine it's going to be really different (both the movie and the score), so why not. :-)

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.

It has nothing to do with RCP, but I think the samples for Clinton Shorter's upcoming "Pompeii" sound promising. Will we get a new "King Arthur" this year?

Way to overreact, genius. Take a step back and look at yourself...Look at yourself in the mirror and think about what you've been doing this whole time. Does it feel good to call people names? Do you get a rush out of it?

Caitlin,i think the song is awesom,too bad disney is behaving like this.they will gain nothing by keeping the song unreleased,instead someone should persuade disney to release the song by any means like threatening to boycott their work and also that the song will earn them nothing like this but may make some disney fans to turn away from them.

DAS reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-23 00:00:00
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.

xeriouxi reply Replies: 0 || 2010-09-18 00:00:00
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! =)
