Want this so bad!!!Does anyone have a breakdown of this with the official score album?<br>Hats off to Batu Sener for working on many of the score's best cues though!It all comes to personal preference I think. Personally I’ve moved on from collecting cd’s (or anything really) and would rather have everything digital simply to utilize space. <br><br>That being said, I completely understand the appeals of having physical media, it would be sad to see that go away for the people who really love it.It's not only to appreciate the work, its to have something "real" in your hands, for your music collection. I don't like only to have a digital music archive. Of course, i rip all the cds i own to WAV and MP3. But i want to have them in my physical music collection.
These day, sure. But we usually get news of the next one by the time he's finished wrapping up the current one.Powell only does 1 score a year.Still no news on his next score? Is he taking a break or something? Working on more concert stuff?Was pleasantly surprised by this one when I first heard it. Outside of the ‘modern scoring’ portions you get some fun noir music for the squad, solid action writing, and even some good emotional cues.<br><br>Also gotta love the rhythmic idea from Antz popping up here...Also, the use of the guitars by Jablonsky, are still the best since the 90s
I give a spin (almost 4 years after my last listening), it grown on me (still don't consider of the best of Jab), but much better than Skyscraper (ok score) and Battleship (guilty pleasure, but not a good score by any means), i like the style of Jablonsky in this one, his rhythms (but i still don't care about the 'motif' for Cohen or certain sound design tracks like 'You Can't Shoot Me' or 'You Know the Drill')<br><br>But still has such cool action moments (Hot Potato With a Grenade) and emotional/romantic moments, and still enjoyed that from this.<3 Buck Takes the LeadHybrid do you know what cues Mancina worked on here? I read in the Twister booklet that the director heard a cue from this and wanted Hans for Twister but he told him that it was actually Mark.100% for HybridSoldier!I am very glad we have 2 scores by Steve this year. Waiting for Spenser Confidential.
Agree!!!!! Please organize a concert in Budapest again! The 2017 live concert and this year's World of HZ concert was totally full house in Budapest!thank you, I appreciate that:) I should say that I am inspired by the music of the 90's, I started producing music on a cheap 200$ Yamaha between 1998-2000, and thanks to a few projects I worked on was able to purchase A more high end synthesizer. Right now I kind of just make music as a hobby but hopefully one day could compose A score for A Movie or even A video Game, that would be pretty cool. I'll be adding more tracks as well for this particular project. The next track I am planning will be a more orchestral reprise of the Miami Heat track I uploaded. I'm trying to get better at themes which is an area that I'm trying to improve on.Damn Powell is doing a lot of music on his own now a days with not many additional writers. I hope he takes on more project that aren’t just animated. I really miss his music, he’s so ridiculously talented.And even then, people rate before listening to it...The version on this page is actually sound effects-free!

Hi Lotman, to answer to some of your questions :
- Nearly all tracks have a wrong speed except those : all the songs (circle of life, be prepared) and the 2 "alternate" at the end.
- The album tracks are not rerecordings. These are mixes from some samples with a small audio mastering.
*This Land : mix between tracks 3 & 17 from complete score.
*To Die for : short edit of track 8 + 9 of complete score.
*Under the Stars : short edit of beginning of track 17.
*King of Pride Rock : short edit of track 19.

But hey guys, if you don't know what music is on both albums, why purchasing a complete score ??? :P

Oh :) and could somebody (re-)post the cover for the academy promo, the link has expired:

Track titles are more attractive too by the way on that promo.

I have two additional questions:

Where would the Morning Report scene have fitted in in the film (and in the chronological track list)?

Also, the album versions, are they suites of various cues, or are they rerecordings specifically for the album?

lotman reply Replies: 0 || 2006-07-28 00:00:00
Thanks for the responses everyone! I'm still confused though, is there anyone who could post an updated track list including track times?
- Also, are all tracks off speed, or only a couple of them?
- Is Hyenas an "Alternate" for the mouse scene, or, an "Unused" cue for the scene before "Be Prepared"? (It's possible that the same melody is reprised of course)
- Does To Die For belong before the Stampede then? Or where would you put it in your list?

Thanks!

A modified version of the "Hyenas" track is used in the beginning of the movie when Scar plays with the mouse. There's no saxophone, but the melody (though bearly hearable) is exactly the same.

Mr Tweedy reply Replies: 0 || 2006-07-26 00:00:00
I'm sure "Hyenas" was supposed to be used before the song "Be prepared", as Scar and the hyenas are talking. But director probably said "finally, I don't want any music here".
Sometimes, directors decide to change things... Sometimes there already is too much music in the movie, and people decide to move / delete some cues.
The movie doesn't necessarily use every bit of music written. What's on that CD is the original music as composed by Zimmer, nothing else. This is Zimmer's vision, not the director's one. I don't care if it is in the movie or not, that cue is really great and mimicks hyenas's laugh with saxophone, what a great idead !

Hi Soundguy,
You're right, but, as Brian said :
DVD versions are, most times, faster than film versions. I mean, what you're listening IN the movie, isn't the right speed of the music.
Try to compare film version & official CD. Music in film is always a bit quicker.
The way the music was composed is, nevertheless, the version you can listen on CD. If you prefer to listen exactly what's in movie, I understand. But I personnaly prefer to listen what was originally intented by the composer, and not what DVD's limitations had brought us.

About the mono tracks, I've heard that the complete score original CD was produced in 1994 (to promote the movie in theaters) and had important scratches on it (11 years after... I can understand). There was some kind of remastering to limit the noises in the music of the bootleg CD. The mono tracks could have an explanation there : to limit noises and scratches.
That sounds ok to me, since only the middle tracks are in mono : maybe only the middle of the CD's surface was full of scratches, not the other sections.

I hope that they will edit another version of the score, with full stereo all along ! ;)

Hi everyone,

Thanks for clearing that one up for me. I'll knock 'em back down to 48 Khz.

V Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2006-07-23 00:00:00
"Hyenas" is an unused track, I am positive. It's not heard ANYWHERE in the movie, I am sure, I checked at least 6 times. It is from the recording sessions of the movie, a part of the unused (maybe composed early) by hans Zimmer. I think "...To Die For" is from the Zazu Sings scene. If not, I'd say it is from the recording sessions too. Cheers! :-)

I've got a question. Somebody posted this corrected track list:
1. Circle of Life
3. The Once and Future King
4. Plotting
5. The Elephant Graveyard
6. Kings of the Past (Correction - Simba's Lesson)
8. Stampede (Correction - Be Prepared)
2. Life Isn't Fair Is It (Correction - To Die For)
10. What have you done? (Correction - Stampede)
11. Alternate 1 (Correction - Run Away)
12. A New Era / Bowling For Buzzards
13. On Our Side
7. Hyenas (Correction - We've got a bone to pick with you)
(etc.)

Now, two cues are unclear to me. One is the track "Hyenas" (7). Does this belong after On our side, or as the 2nd track, as somebody else suggested?
Plus, where does track 9 fit in? (To Die for 1:19)?

Thank you!

Soundguy, did you use a PAL DVD for comparison by any chance? PAL material (including sound) runs about 4% faster than film, so this could be the reason for the pitches not matching.

Soundguy reply Replies: 0 || 2006-07-09 00:00:00
Thanks Mr Tweedy for your comment. I read earlier on in the messageboard that you would have to ramp them back up to 48 KHz. I did that but there were still a couple of tracks that sounded off (Alternate 4 was the one that got be started). I had a copy of the Lion King DVD to hand so I checked it out on there. The 48 Khz track was still considerably lower in pitch than the one on the DVD. I played around with it for a while and found that if you take it that little bit further up to 49 Khz it sounds as it does on the DVD.

Just to be sure I did this with the other tracks on the DVD and it seemed to be the case for nearly all of them. I know that 49 KHz doesn't seem right but it does sound more like the DVD than the 48 KHz version.

Give it a try and get back to me :)

In response to the posting by zac - I apologise to the people who may have taken offence to my previous comment, I am very sorry. You're absolutely right, the circumstances surroundiig such a bootleg release give me no right to suggest that you are 'unfair'. I just really wanted to get a hold of this thing....

I love this CD. Is very similar to recording sesions... I have the sped up version!! This CD remember me when I was a children!!

Mr Tweedy reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-26 00:00:00
You're almost right Soundguy.
In fact, you have to resample to 48Khz.
48Khz is the usual sample rate for making music, but you have to resample your songs to 44,1Khz to put them on CD.
The guy who copied the master made a mistake while immediately copying 48Khz (master) to 44,1Khz (CD). Just do the reverse tip (paste the actual 44,1Khz tracks to 48Khz, and THEN use the resample tool to put the music to 44,1Khz before burning the CD).

Now you listen to the tracks as they were recorded, and not their "slow motion" version ! (slo-mo for "This Is My Home was particularly horrible !)
:P

Soundguy reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-22 00:00:00
Whoever posted the sample rate change was right. They have been incorrectly resampled for CD.

Just for everyone's information though, to get the tracks back up to what the masters should sound like (as they are mixed in the film), you will need to resample them up to 49 Khz. They were dropped in the original mix and then dropped again by whoever did the bootleg for some reason....

bullman reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-12 00:00:00
This bootleg was probably made by someone who had access to it during the production of the Lion King DVD back in 2003 because parts of it can be heard in various submenus on the DVD, so I think it's unlikely that a stereo version will appear in the near future.

Had the mono tracks been stereo, this would've been the ultimate TLK score!!! I wish such a release comes out soon, too....

Zimmerian reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-31 00:00:00
I still don't understand. Why would someone encode some tracks in mono and the rest in stereo? I bet the very person who made this bootleg in the first place is aware of the situation so why we don't have a fixed version by now is beyond me. It's a pitty that no matter what I do, I can't make the mono tracks sound any better.

Shame on you Walt Disney Records for not releasing a higly acclaimed score. Shame, shame, shame!

Have you guys thought about signing a petition and sending it to Disney and Hans Zimmer to have them master this and put it out on Vinyl in full beautiful analog sound?

I know I would sign on for that...with a few different names.

I've been trying to pickup just the regular TLK on Vinyl and it's next to impossible, not to mention the Special Edition one, but this, this is the stuff of dreams.

Kings of the Past and Battle of Pride Rock are the best parts of the OST.

Is it just me, or does the Stampede sound a bit too low?

I don't know if it was ever mentioned or not but can someone PLEASE tell me why some of the tracks are mono? It doesn't make sense for half of album to be in stereo and the other be in such crude cindition.
