His KPM and Extreme library tracks are excellentOh I know! I'd say I've heard maybe 20 scores or so by him, so not totally useless, but he's definitely someone I still need to explore more.It would be good to see Kawczynski doing more.Chappie was excellentIan - I prefer Rogue One over Jurassic World. The movie and the score.<br><br>Edmund - You have missing a lot of great stuff by Goldsmith! :DProbably the only reason Goldsmith isn't in my top 3 is I haven't heard enough of his music. :p
Wallfisch is a good composer indeed, but BR2049 (and Dunkirk) were absolutely the wrong place for him. He's not a synth guy. He was originally a protege of Dario Marianelli, for heaven's sake - he's got a far more classical/orchestral sensibility. A score like Cure for Wellness is a much better fit for him. I'm not sure why Hans thought it was best to bring him of all people in on BR2049 when the more electronically-inclined Mazzaro/Kawczynski duo would have made more sense for a Blade Runner score (I say this based mostly on Chappie).Ian - no one is trying to compare Balfe to Zimmer !Firstly there is a 20 year age gap!!!Zimmer will always be the best in my eyes but doesnít harm saying someone else can be good <br><br>Still confused why this conversation is still troubling some.I remember saying last year that I thought Lego Batman was one of the best animation scores that year and it caused some to have heart attacks.there are a hand full of people that donít think he is either good or should be working .... we get !!!! <br><br><br><br>Edmund - given the rationality you've displayed in your comments, I'm disappointed Goldsmith isn't in your top three. ;)<br><br>In all seriousness, I'd put money on Powell fucking nailing the integration of Williams's theme. While Giacchino did a solid job on Jurassic World and Rogue One (I tend to think my assessment of the latter is a bit more positive than most), frankly I just think Powell is a far better composer - a genuine A-level guy, whereas Giacchino is moreso very competent without that spark of pure talent seen in Williams, Goldsmith, Elfman, Zimmer etcI think it's worth noting that Zimmer's popularity at this point is largely under his direct control - meaning that if he were to decide to stop touring, go back to writing full-time, and return to his 'epic' thematic style, I think we'd see a surge in his popularity of the sort we saw from Batman Begins through til Interstellar. However, I just don't think he's interested, which is totally his right.<br><br>I certainly agree that the RCP proteges at this point are, frankly, shit compared to how they used to be. I mean, even a guy like Steve Mazzaro (who I genuinely like and who wrote some of the coolest cues in Chappie, and basically co-wrote BvS - a score I actually like) just utterly pales in comparison to the Powell era.<br><br>Actually, I have to take that back a bit; Wallfisch is a very, very talented guy, honestly so much better than someone like Junkie that I weirdly tend to forget he's under the RCP roof now.@HunterTech<br><br>"I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world."<br><br>Exactly. Hans, for all the criticism he gets (much of it for good reason), has written some of the best film music of all time (seriously, having listened to huge amounts of Williams and Goldsmith, I still find Science & Religion my favorite cue ever). On the other hand, Lorne has written innumerable adequate-to-good scores, but none that I can recall are iconic. I'd say the closest he's come is in the form of his contributions to some of Zimmer's work (personally, I think his Kick It theme is the most interesting of those in Inception), but even then he hasn't done anything as memorable as Djawadi's theme from Batman Begins.
Michael - reread the second half of my previous comment. And no, I don't think Genius or Churchill are no good; I wasn't impressed by the second, to be honest, but Genius is really cool - like an updated version of Frost/Nixon, one of my very favorite Zimmer/RCP scores.<br><br>Edmund - much appreciated.<br><br>Overall, I too am baffled by many of these comments; clearly there is a middle ground between "Lorne is shit." and "Lorne is absolutely amazing.", but this seems to be missed.<br><br>And by the way, I'm actually super happy for Lorne's success - I think he deserves it given the quality and quantity of his work, and he seems like a super nice guy to boot (how many composers regularly respond to people on Facebook?). However, this doesn't mean I can't simultaneously point out the fact that much of his work is very, very similar to work he's done previously. Indeed, I think this is more of an issue for Lorne than Hans, perhaps because he takes on sooooooo many projects.I agree. His Justice League theme is just a deconstruct of his Batman theme. Clever, yeah sure - he's done similar things with the Men In Black sequels and I'm sure there's others I can't think of right now - but I personally dont consider Elfman's involvement in this new DCEU to be very welcome. Zimmer paints a different canvas than Elfman, and I love both their works.It was a missed opportunity.<br>Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>Seven with Zimmer
Yeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.

Well, at least there is hope now. I personally would like to know if the song that plays during Edmund's first meeting with Jadis (white witch) is on there, I would assume unreleased tracks 9 or 10 on the first CD. Would anyone happen to know?

I've this CD, I'm so happy (sorry but I'm a French person)
There is approximately 40 Tracks on this album and many parts Who did not appear on the first version, Notably : Across The Melting River.

I cannot exclaim how much it would mean to each of us if you were to release a complete recording to the Chronicles of Narnia. For a long time the movie industry has been catering to the movie buffs...well what about the score buffs? We are more than willing to spend more money on a score that would fullfill our needs and fill our ears with probably the best score ever to be composed for film. Please give Harry Gregson-Williams' score to Narnia a chance to be honored. What a perfect Christmas gift it would make this season!

You guys need to put this release out in stores this is such a wonderful cd I've been looking here and there to find these songs I want them sooooooo bad!

Please consider releasing a Complete Recordings. It's working well for the Lord of the Rings music!

We're all willing to pay good money in legitimate markets for the soundtrack. The selections of music from the battle on the original soundtrack was so sparse compared to the total of what was used. I'd love to hear ALL of the battle music.

Please consider releasing a Complete Recordings!

This album is definitely one of my prize finds. I absolutely love the unreleased tracks, "Peter Wake Up!", "Across the Melting River", "The Lion and the Witch", "The Stone Table Part 2," and "Peter vs. the Witch." Each of those tracks contains themes that the OST either left out completely or didn't do justice. A sad thing that they will never be released publicly.

Yhe only problem with the Recording Sessions CD is that each track has some quite long pauses at the start and end thus making the track times longer than they should be.

pumaman reply Replies: 0 || 2006-08-12 00:00:00
I found it. The Battle Part 1 and 2 is just the standard Battle split in two and thus a let down. Thus ignoring the absence of the full Battle music I must say I really enjoyed it, especially
CD1 track 18 Inside, track 19 Discovered, and track 21 The World of Narnia
CD2 track 01 Across the Melting River, and 08 Aslan and the Witch

There is no legal way to buy or 'get' it. It's a bootleg, the recording sessions and not an official release, I'm afraid.
Perhaps you guys here should give up hope to held it in your hands one day. Or so I have done, because who would ever think of the handful of fans, who are really desperate to get it. There is no mercy in the commercial world, I guess.
Oh, I would love to hear to that music. But I would better just forget about it . There is no way I'll ever live to see the day, when I'll listen to it.

~I'm on Aslans side, even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia.~

This music makes me crying everytime I hear it! It's so wonderful, emotional and somehow it reminds me of something I have felt when I was a child. It makes me really sad, but the enjoyable way of sad! But I miss many wonderful parts from the original film score on the soundtrack disc. For example the part, when Lucy and Susan ride on Aslan to the witches castel. The strings are so beautiful! I really miss this and other great parts. Why wasn't all on the soundtrack? That was really a pity. I would love to hear it again.

Fledge reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-08 00:00:00
I totally agree! We just need this score!
Not that I'm desperate now to hear the whole soundtrack, but I'm also disappointed, that there is now sheet music for the Chronicles! Just a songbook with four or five few songs, which is pretty... useless! Gregson-Williams first composed it for the piano, so why isn't there any decent sheet music?
And above all, why don't you just release this score!

I've listened to the original soundtrack numberless times so far, and I've just got the feeling there's missing a whole part, which makes me really really sad...

Please release this score... release it for your fans... please...

I agree Aiedail, 'evacuating london' was the track that made me shiver all over...loved the climax part of the track where the title just appeard like snow..hehe. The battle sequence was some of the best i've seen too. The full-force orchestra treatment of the 'heroic theme' in 'the battle' is simply amazing. I hope the extended version of the ST will be released soon.

Aiedail reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-19 00:00:00
Yeah, I completely agree. The war scenes were so cool.
But the first time there ran a shiver down my spine was when the children are on the train and you hear 'evacuating london'. This was sooo beautiful. I would love to hear the second version. *sigh* I wish the extracts above were longer....

I just love these downloads, especially the one where Peter's army was waiting for the White Witch. It was just amazing, when I watched that part in the cinema, adrenaline just rushed through my veins and I felt as if I were actually there! In the movie. During that war, my hair stood on ends! It was overwhelming. I loved it!
