Oh shut up, Putin is a nice guy if you believe his acolytes Like Trumepstania. The Solomon Lane theme is bastardized in The Storm Is Here but in a just really terrible 90s TV synth version. The Kramer theme was of course, actual music, this is Balfe passing out on a synth and pressing a key. <br><br>What is wrong with you if you want to defend this? Surely even the youngest here can see the lack of talent and the piss-taking of Balfe to be critical of what he does. The guy flaunts the fact that he does not know how to compose in front of you.....I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). It’s fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but don’t criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldn’t afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.
I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said noI Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from WallfischOne-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!<br><br>They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.So you can't wait to hear the score but you already say it's a great score ?<br><br><br>#inceptionAnother great score from Benjamin Wallfisch can't wait to hear the score & see the movie <br><br>Music By Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Additional Music By John Paesano & Adam Hochstatter<br>Orchestra Conducted By Tim Williams<br>Orchestrations By Peter Bateman & David J. Krystal
Why is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.<br><br>And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring. <br>And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...Re-listening the score again...….Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...…..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.Its just three short bursts of sound, really.
Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheetIt should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.<br><br>Ossuary<br>Return to Sappers<br>Must Protect the Child<br>Bomb<br>Like a Real Girl<br>Luv in Apartment<br>Mesa Hijack<br><br>I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.I keep listening to "The Syndicat", which is what I assume to be the theme for The Syndicate. Honestly one of the better villain themes i've heard in a whileFlight has a new Andrew Kawczynski credit...We're getting there!Yeah, you're probably right. <br><br>I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff. <br><br>Either way, I love that track.

Another great score by the duo Hans Zimmer Nick glennie Smith (the great friends). Their other masterpiece is the little polar bear II. Good job men!

NGS is bad ?


LOL


Do you know that a lot of what you call "HZ themes" were actually written by NGS ?

This score was mainly written by NGS, with the "help" of HZ and HL... Just like The Rock... Go Nick !

I think they split up the work like this:

Glennie-Smith ->-- main theme and most of the cues
Zimmer ->-- Lullaby theme
Lohner ->-- children choir

it's not a NGS solo score it's really a hans zimmer and NGS collaboration ... look at the credits, hans zimmer is almost everywhere. Nick Glennie-Smith was solo only on short cues.

If you listen carefully to Der kleine Eisbär 2, We were Soldiers, Man in the Iron Mask, Puy du Fou or The Lion King II you can clearly hear that Lauras Stern is written in NGS style :)

He is IMHO one of the most underrated composer and should get some better scoring assignments. :(

very good score ...

mostly written by nick glennie smith ... why is it so good ? Because hans zimmer took part in the process of creating the score ? i've never heard a nick glennie smith score like this !

One of Hans Zimmer's best. Wonderful themes and orchestrations, maybe one of the best scores in 2004.
