you can absolutely hear the 13 hours temp track in Battlefield and We Have to GoNot to mention that Steve and Lorne structure their power anthems differently.<br>To me this score sounds like 100% SteveI wouldn't say so, Lorne stacks his ostinatos and rhythms on top of each other (see Blackwood, Last Man on the Moon) and shotguns piano writing all over his scores in addition to using it for almost any kind of emotional scene (see Manny, Duck Shoot, Brothers Theme from Hurricane Heist)Well, if all we're using to distinguish Lorne is ostinatos and piano writing, then in that case, he's all over this film!The interesting thing is, that if Lorne did work on it, his work is indistinguishable from Steve's cause I hear none of his ostinatos or extensive piano writing.
@Hybrid, a while ago I saw a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap.<br>But looking at the credits I see some people from his team have been involved( his assistant Queenie Li as music coordinator, and Max Aruj and Steffen Thum did arrangements..)<br>Do you know why and to which extent he was involved or why his team worked on the score?This little gem of a score is one of my favourites of Lorne's smaller projects.<br>Got a great main theme and varying instrumentations of it throughout, plus he's using a real orchestra which is always good. (Check out The Heist, very upbeat jazzy piece)Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Balfe - for anything than bad TV? How much did you smoke tonight? The Mission score must have been a studio decision but Balfe should not be allowed anywhere near a (any) franchise - the dude is a headcase and a total copycat. Tell me one piece that Balfe did that is original?Looking forward to what Ben's going to do with that movie.
Hellboy coming by Sony Classical at 4/5/19Kung Fu Fighting (Celebration Time) on KFP3 also has a HZ credit despite again the booklet not crediting him for anything on it.I noticed that on Kung Fu Fighting here, Try on KFP3, and Here Comes the Sun on Bee Movie complete that there are primary composer credits on them (HZ, JP here, HZ on Try, Rupert on Here Comes the Sun) but both the film and booklet info doesn't credit them. Did they do ghost arranging/producing on them?Lorne Balfe score for Fallout was perfection so would be perfect for a Chris Nolan film. He also has worked with him on Dunkirk and Inception.But I expect and hope Hans is doing the score .If Hans is notworking with Nolan then Lorne Balfe should do it .
So... Can it be considered as the second CD? Or something like that?<br>If Nolan is not working with Zimmer, Ludwig Göransson would be a dream choice for me. I really think he is an up and coming composer capable of great things. <br><br>But of course, I rather Nolan stick with Zimmer.Ludwig GöranssonNolan's movie IT IS CONFIRMED ;)As much as I liked Julyan's work - especially his score for Insomnia, don't think it would work. I mention Lorne because he has worked with Nolan as part of Zimmer's team and his sound is very familiar to Zimmer's. <br><br>Of course, everything is kept under wraps. I personally think Zimmer doesn't want to confirm his involvement so that he doesn't get asked about it. I mean the film starts filming in three months and we only have a date. Hans usually starts very early on Nolan's films that's what surprises me the most, if he really is in the dark with this one.

Has anyone noticed that the version of "I'll Tell Him" heard in the film is different than the OST? But there's no alternate listed here.

I still remember how some people (critics, ugh!) were "complaining" that the Rabin's theme from Deep Blue Sea was very obviously re-used during the dragon sequences in Shrek.

I mean, yes, it kinda reminds me of Rabin's cue, but listening to the tracks now, it's certainly not as bad as some people made it out to be. Overall, I really like what Powell and HGW did with the Shrek score.

Speaking of Shrek, I really hope HGW returns for the upcoming fifth movie. Oh, who am I kidding - Lorne will probably steal this one as well.....lol.

I mean, it's a four chords theme...there have been literally hundreds of those written over the years, it's hard to say which ones are ripping off which.

All the extra stuff is just chopped up release material. Nothing worthwhile here.
