Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell...
...and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.
love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.
M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.

Conductor on this score is Pete Anthony, not Gavin Greenaway! Mr. Greenaway will conduct on The Bourne Ultimatum and Jason Bourne.

Anonymous reply Replies: 1 || 2016-02-08 16:26:34
Should we take the lack of a composer on "Jason Bourne" as an indication that Greengrass just used a Powell temptrack for the whole thing? ;)


Macejko2016-02-08 18:17:03
I really, really hope he decided to become a less of an asshole towards his music.

Mike reply Replies: 3 || 2014-09-17 03:11:10
So with the news that Greengrass and Damon are returning to the Bourne franchise...any idea whether Powell will return? Bourne wouldn't be (and from experience with JNH's score, isn't) the same without him!


Lambegue2014-09-17 14:18:31
I doubt it very much...Precisely because Greengrass is returning.


Edmund Meinerts2014-09-19 16:00:12
How many schmucks can there be left in Hollywood that would agree to score a film for Greengrass now? :p


Mike2014-09-19 18:07:42
Yeah, he's a pain...but I still hope Powell comes back. He was part of what made me like the Bourne films.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2013-05-16 09:33:50
I watched the movie again recently (great stuff) and I had never noticed before that a few of the cues were arranged somewhat differently in the film ("To the Roof" has electric guitar not on the album, "Gathering Data" has an extended ending, "Berlin Foot Chase" is somewhat extended, etc...).

It's a great score from Powell that makes the movie all the more enjoyable, as well as the best Bourne score, in my opinion. Although it's too bad the Hotel Brecker music (heard when Bourne is looking up info on Neski and when Pamela Landy visits Abbott) is not on the album.


Aragorn2013-05-16 09:36:22
I know! It was even re-used in Ultimatum, but wasn't on that album either! :(

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-13 00:00:00
Yes, maybe theres isnt too much NR music from Ultimatum, but i just want End Credits with new "To The Roof" variation :)

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-13 00:00:00
I think the Ultimatum complete score isn't out yet. But I think there isn't too much music missing from Ultimatum, because quite a lot of cues from Identity and Supremacy were reused for it.

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
Woohoo, I just got the 26 track complete score

It is awesomeness on toast!

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
Yup, it's great to listen to the Goa Chase music in its full glory now! :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
Yeah, the complete score is really good :) Goa Chase rocks as well, but too bad its just another "Waterloo" from Ultimatum, although its better

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
By the way, is there a complete score for Ultimatum?

I listen to this music almost every night. It really touches me like no other music, ever. I can feel every note!

Thank you.

To me this is an utterly awesome soundtrack. I can listen non-stop without getting tired of it. Powell has mixed together so many different parts to create a piece of music with so much going on. I can't get enough of the bourne music. He brings together both emotion and adrenaline with the most successful consequences I have ever heard in film music. Other Powell soundtracks such as Paycheck (rachel's party) provide similar effects but never to such a high standard. Thanks, John, this music is wonderful.

Thank you Anthony! I guess, I won't have another choice but following your instructions. I was already wondering about doing that but still hoped to find another possibility to get the song in CD quality...
Anyways, great site you built up there ;)
Cheers!

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-14 00:00:00
I agree Horst, for that music to be missing is a crime against nature. Take a look at the FAQ on my site for info: www.johnpowellcomposer.com

Horst reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-13 00:00:00
Also love this movie and the soundtrack!!
What I was surprised about is that the song appearing during the chase in Goa and once again in the end titles after Moby's Extreme Ways is missing on the soundtrack.
Does anyone know why and where you can get it?
Besides To The Roof this is the best song played in the movie and just totally missing on the soundtrack... :'(

Yes, because posting the full song on this website would be illegal.

Now go buy the thing off iTunes or something. It's under $1. :)

Yes yes, John Powell doesn't conduct. Hardly ever, actually. He said so on the Supremacy DVD - there's a special feature alllll about the music.
