Hello Doponko,<br><br>I've been searching for this soundtrack for years and have been unable to find it anywhere. Wound you consider sending me these tracks or telling me where I can find a cd?<br>Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!<br><br>I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.I'm greatly surprised that the great Herbie Hancock is also in this terrific scoreYes, Paesano is a good choice, but for Ramin it would be better..... He would be the better option in my eyes ;)John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.
I can't play the music, although I did play it before, what happened?And it sounds great! It also seems like the original end titles are included as well.<br><br>One interesting thing, the mix sounds a bit different in the samples. The percussion and brass are both more pronounced I think.I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.There's a sample of this cue on their site :)FUCK! :(
Finally, LaLaLand has done it! Many kudos to them!!!! One my holy grails as well. I've been waiting for this for ages!<br>Take my money LaLaLand Records! Just take it!John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories.  There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention.  Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade.  Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?"  If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.fail*
Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(Saw Patriots Day, really liked it. But the score was lacking. Really wish Jablonsky had done this one.The sticker on the album says: <br>"The best of Hans Zimmer<br>+ selected by him*<br>+ new arranged<br>+ new recorded with top stars"<br><br>*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme. <br><br>Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.<br><br>2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to. <br><br>I think that is about it.Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.

Amazing score by Steve Jablonsky, maybe his better score, with an inocent sound to define the protagonist, heroic and epic themes for the action scenes, this is a only score on the filmography of Jablonsky, the top defect of the composer is that he have talent, but sometimes look like he use it when he wants, like on this case and in other moments waste it, in scores like Gears of War: Judgement, Gangster Squad or Ender's Game


MacArthur2014-02-01 16:31:26
Ender's Game was great to.


Edmund Meinerts2014-02-01 17:51:15
This score is light-years beyond Ender's Game. You can't even compare the two.


Macejko2014-02-01 19:06:14
Actually, I think Ender's Game is far better than this.


MrZimmerFan2014-02-01 21:34:33
Ender's Game is a very entertaning score, but i think Steamboy is such of cool


genesis2016-06-09 05:49:20
The reason why this score is so good than any of his other scores is that the main theme/melody (Ray's Theme) is so good.

Its like John Williams score. I think the melody is up there with Superman and Star Wars.
The theme is "that" good.
I felt exactly the same with Mark Mancinas score for Twister.

This an absolutely incredible score, arguably better than Transformers, even! So many memorable tunes and themes blended so well!

@Hybrid Soldier: Perhaps it's just me, but I haven't noticed any real "borrowing" by GZ other than the overarching Remote Control style. The most explicit I've heard is near the end of "Gunnar's Raid" on the Outlander CD, which is pretty much a carbon copy of Jablonsky's theme for The Island.


Edmund Meinerts2012-10-25 00:46:31
If you listen to Zanelli's unreleased cue "Escaping Cannibal Island" from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest you'll hear about 30 seconds or so that are copied directly from "Fight in the Exposition Ground" from Steamboy. My jaw literally dropped when I heard that listening to the expanded DMC the first time.

...I just realized I replied to a post from 2009. *shrug*


Edmund Meinerts2012-10-25 00:49:28
This score needs way more love, by the way. As fun as Transformers is, I have to say that Steamboy is a more unique and dynamic work, one that manages to step out a lot further from Zimmer's shadow and showcase the true voice and style of Steve Jablonsky. The only other score where he got to stretch his wings like that is Your Highness...and it always makes me sad when he has to write a Zimmer copycat/sound design/headache-inducing thing like Battleship.

But check out Steamboy if you haven't yet. It's easily SJ's best :)

@ Miles,

Black Hawk down is in Outlander too!

You know, GZ likes borrowing stuff from his pals... ;)

Yes, but these guys work in the same "enterprise" and the exchange of ideas is their strenght (and their major default for certain people).

After listening to some cues in Geoff's website... i was wondering. Did he wrote any cues for this? Its strange... no additional music on this one?

It's wonderful! I love it!

An awesome score, i have been listening to it for over a year and had never got bored of it!

A Great Score. A 15 out of 10 :):):):) Hope That Steve Jablonsky More Music Like This Composes

Definately one of the best scores i've heard from these guys in the last few months, a score that perfectly matches the pace of the movie, for example the awesome Chase scene/track. It is melodic, most of the time very rythmic and fast paced music, plus a great main theme. Jablonsky did an awesome job, and i hope we will hear more of his music soon (The Island maybe?), because he sure has some huge amount of talent hidden somewhere inside. This score is a huge step out of Zimmer's shadow.
