Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrackIn my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.
Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modernLalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.
I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.
Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..I was meaning in addition to stairs and rooftops is there any other segments that play that partI would rather Balfe do the next Bond.MI5 Rogue Nation was a completely breath of fresh air in the series. Thanks to McQuarry and of course Cruise. But also, Kramer take the music in a new level and for me it's one of the best scores in the series. Balfe elevate the music to the netx level. No one doubt is the best in the series, even Balfe took some motifs from Giacchino's scores. So if Balfe return it would be awesome hear what could be the next level in his music, but if Kramer returns, is sure he will take the music to all new level. One of the things Cruise take care in the series is the music, he has a good ear, so many people were surprised when he choose Balfe to score the film.

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
