Why?! Wallfisch did a really good jobNo really original . Gore should have used Zanelli or BalfeThe piano melody in the last minute of "Watching Over Me" is basically the Lois theme from Man of SteelAfter I saw the movie I can explain a little bit:<br><br>Hannad & Volmer (Like the Opening Title)<br>Our Thoughts Exactly<br>Waiting<br>Volmer Institut<br>Nobody Ever Leaves<br>Terrible Darkness<br>Lockhart's Letter<br>Magnicifent, Isnt It?<br>Bicycle<br>Lipstick<br>Zutritt Verboten<br>Volmer's Lab<br>There is Nothing Wrong With You People<br>Clearly He's Lost His Mind<br>The Rite<br>Feuerwalzer<br>Actually I'm Feeling Much Better (End Credits)<br><br>So I think it would be the chronological order :)Very nice !
I don't remember the exact circumstances, Hybrid explained it once...basically there was a revolving door of composers on this one, with Jackman I think being the final guy wrapping everything up. But instead of rejecting the previous scores they decided to work what had already been written into the final score. And apparently a lot of previous John Murphy music was on the temp track (28 Days Later etc), and they decided to get Murphy to come in and rework those pieces himself. It was all a bit of a mess and I'm sure Hybrid knows the story better than me.Why 4 composer for one score?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZjAzj6KJdQ<br><br>Guys! Check this out! This is behind-the-scenes of Planet Earth II with Hans Zimmer himself from BBC Official.So why it was announced for the 2017/02/14 ?Can someone please tell me what the music in the end titles of this doco was called.  Doesn't appear to be on soundtrack.  It is the music when they are showing the next shuttle after Challenger lifting off.

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 :)

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?

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.
