Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldnít help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ĎTerence Malick-yí, ďThin Red LineĒ feel throughout.<br><br>Iím definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I canít comment on what he might have written, but Balfeís broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.
I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.
Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists itís not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lol
So is this how itís gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?Thatís literally the best part of the score though. But itís typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)

Thanks cubsimba! I just tried that with the stampede track, and it rather sounds like Joint Stereo than mono. Anyway, it is a lot better. Thanks so much again!!

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-31 00:00:00
BTW isn't "--To Die For"-- the music from the scene where the hyenas complain to Scar that "--there's no food"-- and he tells them to eat Zazu? That's MY guess...

cubsimba reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-31 00:00:00
You're right, that's where it's been used. I never noticed the little xylophone background beat in the movie during that scene but when I just checked the scene it was there, though barely audible :)

cubsimba reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-30 00:00:00
Here's a good and easy trick to enhance the mono tracks in a way they'll sound a lot better:

1) Open them in a sound editor (e.g. Goldwave) and select either of the two channels so you're working with just this one channel.

2) Cut approx. 40ms from the beginning of that channel and slightly emphasize this channel's low frequencies with an equalizer.

3) Now select only the other channel and slightly emphasize just the high frequences.

It's not quite stereo but it'll sound much wider :)

The quality if the stereo tracks is incredible, almost like the original soundtrack! Who needs "--King of Pride Rock"-- from the OST when here there's the magnificent "--The Return / Battle of Pride Rock / Cleansing Rain / The Ascension / End Credits"--? I just so love this track!!!

The tracks are pretty slow.
In fact, the guy who recorded made a mistake.
He pasted tracks from 48Khz to 44,1Khz (CD quality), that' why every track sound slow.
If you want to hear the track as it is supposed to be played, use a sound-editor (soundforge, goldwave, cubase...) copy-paste your actual song directly in a 48Khz file. And then, re-sample it as 44,1Khz.
Now The track plays at correct speed.

Such a thing is pretty strange... was it intentionnal ? Was it made for a longer album ?

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-27 00:00:00
Yes - in fact, I used GoldWave to find out that the tracks have been slowed down by 0.10 <--insert units>-- so I sped them up again. I don't think changing from DAT quality to CD quality causes much loss in quality. Although I still don't understand why some tracks had to be mono....

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-27 00:00:00
Some tracks were okay but the Battle ofn Pride Rock track sounded horrible without speeding it up...it almost made me go to sleep, so slow! :-P

Sicronis reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-27 00:00:00
i have the score 2, but the mono tracks aren't very noticeable unless you turn on the mega bass, isn't it?

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-25 00:00:00
Owners of both the original soundtrack and this score, compare the both and you'll realise how heavily even the little bit of music released on the official album was cut, mixed and edited :( "--This Land"-- is a mixture of the music from "--The Once and Future King"-- and "--You're Mufasa's Boy"--, the stampede music "--To Die For"-- was cut in more than 4 places and thus left out some sensational music, "--King of Pride Rock"-- skips out all the wonderful music from the battle scene. Probably "--Under the Stars"-- is the only track which escaped major cutting and editing.

Lord Villacio reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-24 00:00:00
It seems that all the tracks dealing with scenes from the Stampede to Simba's meeting with Nala are in mono, not just tracks 9-15 or something like that. The proof is that the "--Setting the Trap"-- track, though at no: 2 here, is also in mono.

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-23 00:00:00
By the way did you guys notice that the "--hyenas"-- track from the french version of the Lion King soundtrack is a mixture of the music from "--Plotting"--,"--The Elephant Graveyard"-- and "--Alternate 1"--. And the opening of the official "--King of Pride Rock"-- track is the opening of "--Kings of The Past"-- and the rest of the notes is from the Track 19.

Can someone pass me the track number 6: Kings of the Past? at ...

Sure, I just got all the tracks, here's the table to help you:

Misnamed Track Exact Name
------------------- -------------
Track No: 2 "--Setting The Trap"--
Track No: 8 "--Be Prepared"--
Track No: 10 "--The Stampede"--

I don't think any other track is misnamed....but I don't know what scene is the music "--To Die For"-- and "--Hyenas"-- from. Can you guys please tell me?

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-21 00:00:00
And yes, most of the tracks have been slowed down. I first sped them up using GoldWave and then burned them onto another CD :) and unfortunately, Track 2 and Tracks 9-15 are in mono --) but the blazer, Track 19 is of very decent quality, and that is what is important :)

X__Alien reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-20 00:00:00
In fact, most of the tracks have wrong names. I'm hearing right now track 10 "--What Have You Done ? / Run Away"--, and it's the Stampede music (not like the original cd, but a close one).

Can someone post here the correct track names?

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-18 00:00:00
hey, what music is the track "--To Die For"-- from this CD play?

jamadam reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-18 00:00:00
that's right but the overall quality of the album is very good...........even if many tracks are in mono..........at least the whole score is there.......blablablablabla............etcetcetc........

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-16 00:00:00
That's right, you can't expect a bootleg like this to be 100% good quality, and sure many tracks are in mono, but, nevetheless, this is the best bootleg released. I'm going nuts over it, I love it so much!!

Joey reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-15 00:00:00
Tracks are not correct. some are mislabeled, the alternates are not alternates, but songs like "--be prepared"-- and "--can you feel the love tonight"--. with words, tracks exactly like the OST. "--circle of life"-- is just like the OST, alternate 3 is "--This Land"-- from the OST, alternate 4 is "--Under The Stars"-- from the OST.
some tracks are just mislabeled.
For example, some tracks, such as "--Life isnt fair, is it"-- (which, correctly should have been titled "--Life's NOT fair, is it"--) is not from that part of the movie. it is actually the Stampede Introduction.

after weeding out the OST tracks, renaming/reordering the tracks, you come out with a, 16 track 10-star, 192 bit rate, lion king extended bootleg score. Its not the Entire movie, but Totally worth it for Lion King Super-fans like me.

After hours of hunting I found the stampede track and lo! it was in mono.....I was do dissapointed!

Lord Villacio reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-11 00:00:00
the Stampede track would have been better if they removed the loud gong strike and let the awesome percussion rule in the beginning, as it was in the movie (and of course made it stereo)

Lord Villacio reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-11 00:00:00
isn't "--Life isn't Fair..."-- the music played just before the Stampede begins (Scar signals the hyenas)?? I thought it must be from the mouse scene....

Caephalo Trecca reply Replies: 0 || 2005-07-07 00:00:00
hey guys i found some tracks from this cd, I nearly fell in a swoon when I listened to Track 19!!!! It is SO wonderful!! The expanded Stampede track is cool too, only if it wasn't mono....k, see ya!

I wish the quality of this CD was as good as the Dinosaur Complete Score CD....

Oops, never mind. Alternate 3 is "--This Land"-- and Alternate 4 is "--Under The Stars"-- (the songs from the original soundtrack). I'm not sure why those two songs are included, seeing as they're both already on this CD anyway (You're Mufasa's Boy, The Once And Future King).

To the hans-zimmer.com team, I was wondering if you have a higher resolution version of the front cover, or even a back cover. Or anybody else who has the score - does anybody have bigger front and back covers?

z67 reply Replies: 0 || 2005-06-29 00:00:00
Okay, I figured out that Alternate 2 is actually "--Can You Feel the Love Tonight,"-- Alternate 3 is actually "--I Just Can't Wait To Be King"-- and Alternate 4 is "--Hakuna Matata."--
