Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.
Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.
As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the score
as for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picasso

I just hope they introduce lossless download purchases till then (if Disney ever plans to do it, praying for it), because from what I know currently Disney execs have decided to push off all score-only releases into digital download-only category. Yeah, it may be fine for quite some people who will say this is better than nothing (true to an extent), but personally I do not want to own my most favourite and beloved score of all time in the form of shitty VBR MP3s. I'm ready to wait more but I pray if they finally do release it then it's in the best possible quality and really complete (no more missing score). Or at least fingers crossed Disney eventually lets another label do a limited number of CDs at least.

Currently I guess we wait for the petition to get about 3000 signatures. Long wait, I know, and no guarantees of working - but for what it's worth, it's worth trying.

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-17 00:00:00
Knowing Disney, they'd probably want to release it at a time when there would be a particularly high demand for it. Every time there's a 10th anniversary, 20th anniversary, or later they seem to take advantage of it and rerelease the dvd for a limited time before it goes back into the "disney vault." I was hoping that they'd release the score in conjunction with the last dvd edition of The Lion King, but for some reason they chose not to. We may have to wait until 2014...

I came up with a short story about a guy who was planning on breaking into the disney vault just to steal Hans Zimmer's complete recording sessions for the Lion King. His plan failed when he realized to his dismay that the vault was no more than a metaphor used to inflict a feeling of urgency upon the American population, so that people would rush out to give disney more money for a dvd that they already own.

I just checked--the petition has around 1527 signatures, but that's probably not enough to get it sent off yet. No release date yet; we'll just have to wait, I guess.

@ mgbube, thanks for your answers! quite clarifying.
What I mean by interpunction, I meant punctuation. I presumed it would be the same in my language with a little difference... sorry about that! But punctuation is use of comma's, dots, question marks etc...
Without those, a sentence can be understood wrong or completely be misunderstood.
The thing I always was surprised about is when I read your sentences and put it punctuation myself, your sentences were almost always correct. That was my biggest question actually, why not using punctuation but make (almost always) correct English sentences?

Fine. FYI, my original post was in reply to Ele's question about whether this bootleg is the best existing "unofficial" complete version out there, so I mentioned the recording sessions. I already explained why it's real. I don't have it yet so I don't know where it is to be found (this board is not for that purpose anyway), but it exists for sure or we wouldn't have this bootleg in the first place. I too am hoping it surfaces sometime soon in the best quality.

And I'm not "stepping on your toes" or "spewing" anything here, so call that off.

It's the best version out of all the ones listed here, but that doesn't mean it is satisfying. The music itself is magnificent (especially the segments that were not on the commercial release), but the sound quality, for the most part, is CRAP. It really detracts from the listening experience. Almost all the tracks have also been "slowed down" to make the CD look like it has more music, and they are about 10-15% slower than the original recording.

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-01 00:00:00
Allegedly there's a real recording sessions version, running around 2 hrs and having a lot of alternates and all the film's score in true stereo and real lossless, but as you can see it hasn't surfaced yet. Fingers crossed that that day isn't too far off, though.
