I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.
I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.

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....

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!

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."--
