Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

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!

Brian reply Replies: 0 || 2006-07-26 00:00:00
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! :-)

lotman reply Replies: 0 || 2006-07-09 00:00:00
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.
