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,.

There's a bunch of the african lyrics on here

http://www.lionking.org/lyrics/

...I just noticed that Pridelander already posted that hahaha. BTW <3 TLK and Hans Zimmer :)

And I have another website bookmarked on my old computer, it has a lot more of the African words on it. Unfortunately, I'm still in the process of resurrecting that stupid thing... I forgot to back up some kinda important music file and stuff, so if I happen upon the site again, I'll definitely post it ^-^

hi.. folks... to Pridelander... there is an additional ad zulu chant just as the lead female says the circle of life.. not the ingonyama chant.. and actually thats why i'm here.. i am also looking for the additional ad libs for the lion king songs that for some reason dont appear in the scores or lyrics... through my obssesiveness with the lionking.. and that we're putting on the play this summer... i have been able to fig out some.. but not all.. < i always thought it was swahili. :(.. prob cause Simba is swahili for lion.. so i just assumed that the other native tounges were swahili as well)... thanks for clearing that up barry.. Ingonyama is zulu for lion

if anyone knows the zulu adlibs please email them to me at T14309@hotmail.com.. cause i found this page by accident.. and'll prob have a hellova time findin it back

this is what i can remeber from under the stars

"We sangoma ngi velelwe
We baba ngivelelwe
We baba ngivelelwe"....

This one is truly got to be his greatest of all time. The Lion King was superb. Every track was absolutely gorgeous. I love the powerful theme right before the tempo picks up and the voices come in in King of Pride Rock. Perfect!

Hey, my question is does anyone have the lyrics for "This Land", "King of Pride Rock" and "Under the Stars"? I love how it sounds, but I want to know exactly what they are saying, not a translation.
By the way, HANS ZIMMER RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sylvos:
>the track called 'Hyenas' which was released on French version of the album but not on the US ones.

"Hyenas" was released not only on French version, but also on Japanese version, and German, Spanish, etc... It seems that all the foreign-dubbed versions have this additional score track, instead of Elton John's "Circle of Life" and "I Just Can't Wait to Be King".

I think they should have put "Hyenas" (and more score) in all versions and removed Elton John's terrible (imho) songs... Blame Disney Records, who think that all customers love only pop songs and don't want any 'boring' score! :(


Oh but don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Elton John songs are bad. Actually I admire his songwriting works for TLK. These songs are catchy and enjoyable. And his own version of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is beautiful and suitable for closing the movie.
Though, his version of "Circle of Life" and "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" are totally out of place on this album. I always skip these tracks.

And honestly, I think all the Elton's songs would've been out of place in the movie if they were not arranged by those talented arrangers(Hans Zimmer & Mark Mancina) :)

Also in the Italian version of the soundtrack there is the track "Hyenas"...

A simplistic, yet very powerful and effective score. It's always been a personal favorite, and easily qualifys for the greatest animated film soundtrack to date. I really never would have guessed that Zimmer's trademark use of heavy percussion would fit so well in this genre. And somehow, it does, and it works wonders.

One thing that was interesting about this release was the track called 'Hyenas' which was released on French version of the album but not on the US ones. I wonder why they decided to do this.

One of the best soundtracks ever. I really enjoyed it when I heard it for the first time and since then I have been listening to it over and over again. I believe that this soundtrack really deserved to win the Academy Award. My favourite song is "--Can You Feel The Love Tonight"-- and my favourite instrumental song is "--This land"-- and "--King of Pride Rock"--.
