Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip
...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scores
This score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me
@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04.

Please, this link is unavailable... Do you still remember the lyrics of "Phoenix Rises"?

"Why the producers never remember John Powell?". Is what I question to my self everytime outs a dissappointing superheroe score, like The Avengers by Alan Silvestri, John Powell did this great score for X-Men, and looks like nobody remember it, why John Powell never else did another superhero score (ok, it's Hancock, I know), but Joh Powell can do something else, to part of just excelent score for animated movies


Ds2014-02-01 12:49:00
Maybe they ask him every time and he's the one refusing these projects... He took a lot of time for himself/his family, maybe he's not as much a work-junkie as HZ is :-)

But these are pure speculations, we don't have a clue.

The essential thing is: a lot of people are missing John Powell and would be extremely happy to see him gloriously return. I hope he comes from time to time on this website and see all the love we have for him!

2015, guys—How To Train Your Dragon 2 and, presumably, the next John Williams Star Wars score! :D


MrZimmerFan2014-02-01 21:32:22
My favorite of Powell


dark prince2014-02-01 23:58:27
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is for 2014, I really want to hear this score, the first is a masterpiece by John Powell


Ds2014-02-02 00:44:54
Mike if there's one thing in 2015 i absolutely don't care about, it has to be that f#cking Star Wars movie, including its soundtrack. And i'm already tired of all the hype that's going to come over the next two years :D


Mike2014-02-02 03:39:19
lol....harsh. I can understand not caring about the movie, but the music, too???? :P Oh well, to each his own.


Edmund Meinerts2014-02-02 11:48:07
How can you not care about the opportunity to hear more Star Wars scores from John Williams?

I LOVE phoenix rises!! I consider it my own personal theme, and I play it every morning to get my blood pumping! It is a better eye-opener than coffee WITH caffene! It's better than a 6-pack of red bulls! It's just so Goddessy-girl-powery-awe-inspiring-wowee-wow-wow!

I have to say...the "Phoenix Rises" is just too powerful for me to listen to without breaking down with tears in my eyes!!! I know every fan in here would agree with me! I'm not ashamed to admit my personal feelings for this particular score! It's just that every time that I hear "Phoenix Rises", it seems that every core inside my body is forcing its way through the pores of my skin!!! Unbelievably incredible film score by John Powell!!!

Dies irae, dies illa, This day, this day of wrath
Solvet saeclum in favilla: Shall consume the world in ashes,
Quando Judex est venturus When the judge shall come
Quando Judex When the judge
Dies irae, dies illa This day, this day of wrath
Dies irae, dies illa This day, this day of wrath


Tuba mirum spargens sonum The trumpet, scattering its awful sound
Per sepulchra regionum Across the graves of all lands
Coget omnes ante thronum. Summons all before the throne.
Mors stupebit et natura, Death and nature shall be stunned
Cum resurget creatura, When mankind arises
Judicanti responsura. To render account before the judge.

I think those are the lyrics but I am not to sure about it though. If anyone knows latin then i am sure they could help out more.

lavad, as I wrote below:

Powell had more time to work on the CD release, so the overall result, while different, is better. ''

From what I've heard, a fair amount of the first half of the film sounds different on the CD release.

The reason behind this was that they had to do some emergency recording sessions to get the music done for the films release.

Powell had more time to work on the CD release, so the overall result, while different, is better.

Jean Grey/Phoenix/Dark Phoenix's theme music for X3 is easily the best not only in this movie but the entire trilogy! Especially the version from Whirlpool of Love, Phoenix Rises and Dark Phoenix's Tragedy.

"La La LaLa Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... LaLaLaaaaaaaaaa.... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.... DuDu Duuu Duuuuu...

La LaLaaaaaa Laaaaaaaaaaaaa.... La La Laaaaaaaaaa..... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaa...."
