Yes ! Now this is ACTION MUSIC . Not just loud drums or Baaaaaaams!!!Go watch the film and you'll understand why there's no Rachel's themei believe that glimpses of the original would have solved the problem ;)Not actually though...probably a bit more Jackman than there actually is, eh? ;)@James<br><br>I have heard the original Vangelis theme but I was referring to a new theme for this new movie.
Okay. I'm on the Lorne Balfe bandwagon now. I don't care if this movie is trash, this is a great listening experience, which is sometimes difficult to find in a score these days.Composer credits !@spectre<br><br>She has a theme! Search for "Rachael's Song"!I agree. It is the most beautiful theme of the previous film and one of the biggest in Vangelis' career.I feel like there should have been a proper theme for Rachael. She was a really important character in both movies and it would have been nice to hear a sad melancholic melody for in her in some kind of Flashback or dream sequence for Deckard.
$$$$$$ the soundtrack is FANTASTICSame here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.Just listen to all of it !!!! Itís a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!
No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The ShellI totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>

I prefer the album presentation of this title far better than that complete thing that's out in the wilds. Sure the sound quality of the album is disspinting but the mix really helps the music here.

I do wonder, however, whether or not the stuff in that complete thing are rough mixes. Some cues, particularly, the main title, Fahrebheit 451 or the finale cue in the complete version sound somewhat off, particularly the bells in the finale cue.

Oh, and by the way. It is nice to hear the roots of that Honor Him tune from Gladiator in track 5 of Backdraft here. :-)

I personally hate that album presentation. They removed the electronic layers & tried to mix the orchestra louder above the synths.

Which makes it sound a lot less "HZ" !

First got into Hans Zimmer after Gladiator.(Can't believe he didn't get the Oscar). Realised that I'd heard a lot of his stuff without even knowing it, as he tends to write for my kind of movies. As soon as it clicked though, his style is clear and now I can recognize, without prior knowledge, a Zimmer presence within the first few bars of a soundtrack.

Hans Zimmer makes great music. He has style, ideas. I like soundtracks very much. I used to listen James Horner, Danny Elfman. They are good but they don't have..."--that"--. In my opinion Hans Zimmer and John Williams makes the best music right now. But I prefere Zimmer
