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.

That's fabulous. I hope an Extended Edition of the soundtrack album would also be considered for this new plan.

Extended edition of Narnia
coming in November 2006

"--This is an editorial about the upcoming release of "--The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - Special Extended DVD Edition"-- that Andrew Adamson mentioned on the audio commentary of the DVD.

With the announcement that there is, in the works, an Extended Edition of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in the works, possibly for release in November of 2006, I have many ideas for what I would do with the film. This is, by no means, a definitive list of additions, as I am sure there are more, and better ideas out there, but I just wanted to address a few things."--

Hey Antas! Can you confirm something for me please?

I have a copy of the official Special Edition 2 CD Narnia soundtrack release - the red cover version.

On the promo flyer on your link it says that the soundtrack is "--extended"--.

Can you tell me / us this if this is true?

The standard and extended releases have the same track times are the same for both CD's. I've even checked the encoded version using the Disney player that's on the CD?

Thanks!

Hello Lee,

You meant the CD+DVD version ?

It's not true. I don't have the single version but the tracklist/length of both are the same.

Lee reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-05 00:00:00
Hi,

Yes - standard = CD, Extended = CD/DVD.

So much for an "--extended"-- version then. :-(

Perhaps they thought it might be sucessful and planned to release the full score at that point - hence why it's the same version! Fingers crossed! :-)

Speaking of that Lion King bootleg, I'm still wondering why some of the tracks are encoded in mono. That's pretty darn annoying you know! ---D

Vastatosaurus Rex reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-03 00:00:00
They may, they usually release promos if the score is nominated for awards, so it is very much possible they may release a promo soon (like they did with Dinosaur, Atlantis, brother Bear....) Although I am surprised they didn't release a complete score with the release of the Lion King platinum DVD (I think the no SFX bootleg is also the recording sessions)

Well, come to think about it Antas and Damien. You guys have just announced something which many people have been waiting for eversince they got thier hands on the commercial version and there is nowhere else they can find to search for it, save for the very place they first saw it. As far as I know no one can make comments but asking for the album itself. Unless you want to manualy delete the posts concerning trades, I think 'words' won't just help pushing people back.

Anyway, I have three questions that I hope you guys can clue me in. Firstly, I do understand what the role of 'Promo' albums usually is but 'Bootlegs' are illegal from the root. Though I think it is nice to enlist the Promo scores along with thier commercial albums, in a composer's discography, I see no reason for doing the same for Bootlegs unless you guys yourself want to open discussions such as the one we have here, about how to getting the score. Otherwise what's the point of mentioning things that maybe even the composers themselves never knew of its existance? The Bootlegs with Sound Effects are good examples of what I'm saying since if the composers really wanna show people thier music they won't certainly do so by offering a low quality music which is mixed with SFX. So why don't you guys just stick to official promos instead of fake ones?

Secondly, How can it come to pass that you guys can find a Recording Session for certain scores but can't find one for the other? I mean, Ok, King Arthur had one, Narnia has one but why, some others don't?

And my third question is how you guys find such items? They are not legal so eBay and Amazon are not the place where you need to look at. Do you contact the composers themselves? Or you do what you prohibit us from doing here yourself and get it via trade from others? ---)

Oh and at the end, please do take it easy now guys! I'm just curious about certain things and I'm not intending to move accusation on any of you. Thanks for info about Narnia.

Antas, Webmaster reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-02 00:00:00
1. We put bootlegs on our pages in order to have the most complete discography. moreover, that shows to the composers (or to the people who have the copyrights) what fans are looking/waiting for (yes composers come here regularly). Don't forget an official CD soundtrack could be released only because the bootleg exists and because many people are asking for a legal version (see what happened for Blade Runner, The Ring, Dark Crystal, Loch Ness, America...).

2. I don't know -- It may depend on people who worked on the score.
Don't think that getting a release like Narnia sessions is an easy thing ! It takes sometimes lot's of time and money in order to get rare (promo or bootleg) items.

3. Mainly trades or Ebay (Ebay : essentially for the Academy promos). Only A very few number of promos comes from the composer himself (unfortunately !)

Right, thanks for the info!

Now, I'm just wondering if this is what Disney planned to release before as a Special Edition of the soundtrack. If memory serves correctly they were aimming to release a complete score for Narnia though the Special Edition soundtrack, eh?

Antas, Webmaster reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-01 00:00:00
Well, be sure these mp3 extracts don't come from Internet (nor mp3 source).

ps: we (the site) would have problems if these pages are used for bootlegs requests.

Lee reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-01 00:00:00
Well Damien - if you feed us this news and provide excerpts for download we are of course going to ask for where we can get if from.

Yes I know it's a bootleg and not available to buy, but it must be *somewhere* as you have provided mp3 snippets!

If you hold out your hand with grain, we will feed from it!
