What a pleasant surprise. I didn't think Jackman had this class of sound in him. Hope he gets to write this more often.Great album.One of the greatest scores from videogame industry.<br><br>This and Angel of Darkness (2003), the Best of Tomb Raider Saga.<br><br><br>Hello,<br><br>Any news of DVD/Bluray of live on tour ?<br>Thx!Just listened to this, agree with you Edmund.  The sound design stuff (noise) might work on film, and that's Hans' job after all, however, it isn't very enjoyable to listen to on the album. Half of it could be cut out. <br><br>I think the best parts of Inferno were the softer cues and reprisals of A&D themes. Basically the last few tracks. Elizabeth is pleasant enough. I actually really like the part towards the end (3:50) where the main theme is dissonant and uneasy and yet it's strangely beautiful. <br><br>I think what A&D did much better are the cues/tracks meant to signify action or urgency or drama like 160 bpm, Black Smoke, parts of Air and Fire. The blend of contemporary and classical/religious elements stood out as pretty cool and unique to me. A lot of catchy hooks and melodies and ostinti on those tracks too. <br><br>This has a much more limited sound to it both in instrumentation and emotional range. Either that was a creative decision or production was more limited.<br><br>I forgive Hans, they can't all be home-runs. <br>
Ha, you're right.Wait 'till it leaks or somethingDang, I'm surprised this page hasn't exploded with comments.The film's existence really went dark on me, found out today because of the trailer. Always wanted a horror score by Hans, oh well. Let's see how Ben<br><br>Well ok that was more than a year ago lol.<br><br>I'm so very sad Hans dropped it, it looks amazing and it's a genre he almost never does... I'd take that over a Boss Baby any time... Still curious what Ben cooked, Hans praised his work on it...
I just assumed he'd be back, they were working for a while, I didn't knwo a thing about the film till now. I'm sorry, I won't ask anything anymoreFacepalm... I'm really disappointed in you Everan... Not YOU ! :( ;)<br><br>No Hans was signed to score it but score production happened exactly during the tour era so Hans let Benjamin Wallfisch score it. It was completed a few months ago.So, kinda off topic of Inferno, will Hans work again with Gore Verbinsky for Cure for Wellness?Making the connection and Checking in are my favorite tracks2nd yes :)
I think some tiny bits of Desert and Post Apocalypse are used in the extended cut, just to add those few seconds of cut content. Wreckage is definetely new, and the start of Post Apocalypse sounds a bit different in the film due to the World Engine sound effect.Oh yes! :)They removed the beginning of Logic of Tyrants?<br>but that was one of the better parts of the OST<br>lunacyHe did the score before the tour.Actually the first 30 or so seconds of Post Apocalypse are unreleased, although it's nothing substantial.

I absolutely adore the bassoon solos in this, especially in 'Ellie Remebers'. Powell is a genius who is to be commended

I really love the first track. I love that jazzy rhythm and then the clarinet solo. I love all the tracks. There melodies and styles are performed so wonderfully. I am definatley looking forward to hearing more from Powell. And I have to say, both sloth sing alongs are rather hysterical and catchy.

A very funny score. It's even better than the first movie. I can't believe that the song Mammoths is written by John. Is really magnificent and it fits well in the movie. I think that Mr. Powell will have a long and succesful career.
