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,.
Maybe try using your ears or brain next time before spewing out more hyperbolic nonsense.Ok tracks? Easy. About half the score is some decent anthemic tracks<br><br>Ghosts<br>Haunt the Living<br>I Am the Danger<br>You Can Change the World<br>Thrones<br>A Million Battles<br>One, But Not DoneOh wow, Balfe's had a potentially too productive year. I am still convinced if he took more time to compose His Dark Materials, it would be a classic on the level of Shore. Now, it is fine and impressive. <br><br>But what the fuck. I know Bay is a lucrative customer and you have to do what he wants but this 'score' is a travesty that will be buried soon. Seriously. This is the worst of the worst, I ask anyone on this site to name one track that is 'ok', there's an ethical limit, Balfe, Baby!Do not forget LisboaThanks for sharing the tracklist :)
Sooooooooooo excited for the film and the score!<br><br>I got the real tracklist, and is supposed to be 19 tracks from the score. Can wait to hear the score and see the movie tomorrow<br><br>1.Point of Extraction   2:24<br>2.Ghosts  3:22<br>3.Welcome To Florence   3:54 <br>4.Lose The Chopper      1:54<br>5.Haunt The Living      2:06<br>6.One Rule              2:07<br>7.I Am The Danger       3:17<br>8.You Can Change The World  2:15<br>9.Thrones             3:22<br>10.Memories           1:58<br>11.Beautiful Sunday   1:17<br>12.The Past            0:51<br>13.Shit Ton Of Blood   2:35<br>14.Leave No Man Behind  1:50<br>15.A Million Battles    4:18<br>16.Day Of The Dead      4:08<br>17.Sabotage             3:16<br>18.Live Or Die          1:56<br>19.One, But Not Done    3:08Visit Ukraine!Ho visto il concerto a Berlino The World of Hans Zimmer il 29 aprile 2018.

Hey people, I haven't stopped listening to this soundtrack for over a week now. The more i listen the more i get pulled in by it's power. I find this score, apart from very dark and mysterious, i find it beautiful to listen too. Zimmer creates such a rich sound and writes melodies constantly instead of classically written scale work which i think most times is crap! I think that's why Zimmer writes so well becasue he never studied music for years and years at some university, he studied msic by simply sitting and playing and listening to so many different styles of music. I'm so excited to see the film for The Da Vinci Code all because of Zimmer's music. He is an insperation to me and my film composing here in Australia and hopefully one day i get the pleasure of scoring a film with him. I'm allowed to dream arent I? hehe Peace to you all and once again The Da Vinci Code score is brilliant!

Well,it's not Zimmer's best score.It is a mix of two others thriller movies that He made before:Hannibal and The ring.Original?No.Beautiful?Without a doubt but I espected something else(action music actually)and only the track 13 is AMAZING.Take a bet that Pirates of the Carabean will be greater.

I hope that Zimmer will come with better things but this side of Zimmer-Serious Music never stops to amaze. Mature music not the usual type and he amazes me because he's one of the finest composers in both styles. This score is one of the best by Zimmer. Those who tend to connect Zimmer with only Action music are doing a bit mistake in my opinion. This score and others in this style make him a versatile composer and capable of writing music for different audiences. Those who love classical music will tend to love this score to its maximum more than anyone else.

I might have considered seeing a film of such absurd claims just to hear a-ha but now that they are not in the soundtrack, it would just be money wasted.

Mikel Carmona I agree on your selected tracks especially Fructus Gravis which I have missed through my review. A truly inspirational work!

Where is the music from the official "Da Vinci Code" movie site? I just bought the OST and it's amazing, but none of the music that I was expecting from the site is on it.

It's sad to think that a-ha's Celice will not be the main advertising piece for this movie. Everyone has heard of a-ha, but to think that there exists a secret Bible code and to try to market that into a film???? Now that's odd!

After listening to the soundtrack for a whole day my only comment is TERRIFIC! Some people commented on boring, and lack of a dominant theme and the only thing I would say is, have you listened to the soundtrack?!?!? The main theme is presented in the first cue Dies Mercurii I Martius and it is superb. Long melodic line which is ingeniously absorbed within the harmony. The first cue absolutely genius. It sets the correct mood to the other tracks being enigmatic, dramatic and concise in nature. The lush orchestrations are wonderful and the string-based lines reminds of "The Thin Red Line" & "The Last Samurai". The choral music is exceptional. It is the next step beyond "Kingdom of Heaven". Every track has its own story and result is something colossal. Some very good highlights are "Dies Mercurii I Martius" "Fructus Gravis" "Salvete Virgines" "Poisoned Chalice" "Chevaliers De Sangreal" & "Kyrie For The Magdalene". "Chevaliers De Sangreal" is main title that is going to make a hit almost for sure. The heartbreaking melody is presented at its full glory and the Hans Zimmer "French Horns" make their statement as clear as crystal!!!! DAMN GOOD This score is recomended 100%. The only thing left now is to see the movie and see how it amalgamates. The underscore present on the Soundtrack will surely make the movie a wonderful experience; the music is exceptional on its own, so in the movie I think it will do its job. After having listened to almost every score released by Mr. Hans Zimmer I might conclude that this score really impressed me. The "classical" blood in the veins of the Enigmatic style of Mahler had really worked well for Zimmer. It is one of those formulas you have managed to perfect.

I hope that other people will love the enigmatic effect as much as I do :) ***** out of 5 (100%)!

Yes, the theme was performed by a choir in the first trailer (not teaser) and is also featured on the soundtrack release.
