Well here is my last response... this is beyond absurd... & I feel Mr MK is somebody with a weird agenda posing as a fan.  Yes, I AM THE REAL PEDRO EUSTACHE [not somebody "posing" for me] & I truly think this is useless... specially with people impossible to exchange honest, constructive opinions with... Please, whoever MK is, please, before you "tear me down" do your homework, & check out what God has blessed me with [yes, even if you don't believe in him, he is real tome... WHEN I ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDED AFTER MY DAUGHTER—THREE-YEARS OF AGE— DIED OF BRAIN CANCER, JESUS SAVED MY LIVE, SIR!!  YES, HE IS THAT REAL TO ME... IN SPITE OF YOUR MOCKERY & DISRESPECTFUL SARCASM... you might be surprised… I have composed & performed a 47 minute long, 12 movement concerto for 21 solo wind instruments of the world with Mtro. Gustavo Dudamel & his extraordinary orchestra, for example, in which I perform Raga Todi in a unique 15-hole bansuri built by myself, or when I mix a fugue Bach-style with Spanish “Bulería” Flamenca, or use a “mirror-form” in the Armenian piece in which the actual musical orchestral score—literally!—‘draws’ the silhouette of mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia, or a 21/8 piece for the Easter-European section that starts with 12 upright basses slapping & doing ‘pizzicato Bartok’, or etc… you get the picture!!…] or recording three times with Mtro John Williams [missed the fourth time just now: “Star Wars VIII” due to being in world tour w Hans,,, (recordings where in May 2 & 4)—besides MANY other movie scores with Hans, John Powell, John Debney, James-Newton Howard, etc... or building more than 100 instruments, including unique instruments that nobody else in the world has, after doing research in acoustics with highly specialized Ph, D’s in flute & wind acoustics like Dr. John Coltman & Dr. Peter Hoekje, for example… & etc, ETC… My point: this is ridiculous!! I do not have to defend myself from such absurdity... Ah, forgot to mention: I just finished a 242 pages long book on "How to Write our Own Cadenzas in Mozart Style", or my studies of “Musical Phenomenology” with Mtro Markand Thakar--disciple of the genius Sergiu Celibidache--or that I have more than 7 years of Symphonic experience, studied Indian classical music with luminaries like Pnd Ravi Shankar—yes, THE legendary, iconic, irreplaceable & historic Ravi Shankar!— & Pndt. Hariprasad Chaurasia... but wait... I'm wasting my time!!… Mr MK might not even know who these geniuses are!… He just thinks I am a "jazz player”… such rubbish!! …And concerning your mockery of the Creator, please do not make public your ignorance in such an obvious way... THE GREATEST MUSICIAN IN ALL HISTORY: J.S. BACH SAID THAT MUSIC EXISTS TO "GLORIFY GOD & TO SUBLIMATE THE HUMAN SOUL'... but of course, you might not even know who J. S. Bach is… So, I will refrain from honoring your absurdly useless, empty, & strangely biased criticism... And no, sorry, I love Hans, BUT HE IS NOT GOD... He is a wonderful human being with great talent & wonderful heart... Only God is GOD--whether you believe on Him or not--May GOD BLESS YOU sir!! I will not waist more of my time in this... Blessings to all!!It's feel like they all look like images they use for merchandise books and magazine's, also the posters look like they are for a movie for children. But that's my opinion. The postes for all other films were fantastic, these feel like a big downgrade. Maybe that's why I don't like them.Great!Hi, how long is the average concert? Specifically the one in the Qudos Bank Aetna, Sydney Olympic Park.The first trailer had a bit of Tessa's music at the start, the second a bit of Lockdown's theme, the big kinda orchestral bit, instead of the electronic braaaaams.
Got a special chance to hear a part of salazar's theme, sounds like a varied version of blackbeard's theme but it fits appropriately, very evil. You all should like it.Woops! Made a typo. <br><br>What was used in the final trailer *wasn't* exactly what ended up being used in the film ;)Sounds like a suite<br><br>And wasn't it only the final trailer that used material from the actual score? It was Lockdown's theme. But what was used in the trailer was exactly what ended up being used in the film.@MrTweedy <br>That is true, and you do get the guitars in "Barbarian Horde" (not sure where else though).<br><br>I have to admit, as revolutionary as Gladiator was at the time, I think it's one of Zimmer's more overrated scores. Not that I necessarily think it's bad, but IMO both Last Samurai and King Arthur show a much stronger balance of themes and action writing, yet unfortunately were never as recognized by the mainstream the same way Gladiator was.That synth in the main theme! I didn't expect that. It's really good.
@mpolonest123<br>Actually, there's a small hint at the "spaniard" guitar theme after the sequence where he escapes his execution (track "Homecoming" on the More Music album).No Transformers Last Knight thread yet so posting here. The official site got updated with a new piece of music, and holy hell, it's amazing!<br>www.transformers movie.com<br><br>Also pretty sure the last trailer's music was from him too, Age of Extinction had his scores on almost every trailer.I like all the posters they released for the film.<br>But if someone don't like them it's fine.<br>I will agree with you Dimitris, I too want the main poster as the cover for the album.Epic score from Harry!https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_of_the_Caribbean:_Dead _Men_Tell_No_Tales<br><br>The main poster of the film is the best yes. I hope they put it for the album cover.
Is this poster bad? It's one of the best I have seen.<br><br>https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5560e1bbe4b0cc18bc643 12d/5562957ce4b03107de7ca6ca/58f0476a5016e1685c5e99af/149214 1933102/17015800_10154981836668830_529268610073059017_o.jpgHopefully the artwork looks good, because the posters they released for this film are so bad and ugly.Release date 26th of May, it says under "more details".<br><br>Although maybe you should ask the 704 people who have voted on it already, because they seem to have heard the score!Beautiful musicFirst episode was really good . Lorne's score is amazing and totally different . Looking forward to this score release .

It's funny how our tastes evolve, isn't it? A couple years ago, I had the audacity to call this score boring in one of the discussions here. Well, nowadays, I find it quite beautiful, I love Hans' instrumentation choices here, and it's right up there with The Last Samurai as one of my favorite Zimmer scores.

Truly sublime and melodious music! :) This stirring soundtrack totally stands on its own. But oh how I've craved for and expanded release for 15 years. This is such a rare and emotional masterpiece, and rightfully deserves to be more complete, so come on gentleman, its 2011...15 long years since the original release in 1995. I have seen the film a number of times, and loved the other poignant music variations! Especially the beautiful music during the raft scene when Laura Bowman tends to his wounds. And of course other lovely segments when she is traveling through Burma etc. I really Appreciate you guys reading this. I hope I'm not too unpopular for making a humble request :)

Wow! This music is straight from the heart, it deeply expresses what cannot be put into words. Why is it that so many people I have encountered over time, have not heard of this forgotten masterpiece. I am an avid soundtrack fanatic and truly appreciate quality creative music. And this unique score is one of my favorite finds of all time. Every track is moving and captivating, and after seeing the film just recently, it made me really hunger for more of the original score that unfortunately was not on the official CD release.

Greetings to whom it may concern. I am not too sure how often these posts are read. But I would just like to make a brief inquiry/request about Beyond Rangoon. Firstly, I am privileged to have the original 1995 score in my collection which is just sublime, and totally out of this world! But having seen the film a few times, I suddenly realized how much more rich, original, music is actually missing from this amazing soundtrack.

There are some other beautiful, stirring, variations from the film. And I have been yearning and hoping for an expanded more complete release of Beyond Rangoon. I am certain there are many devout Zimmer admirers out there who are just waiting and hoping for a 2010 release also. It’s seems almost sinful to leave out such lovely theme renditions from this rare PHENOMENAL score. Is this release probable?

Thanks for reading.

This music has such substance and depth to it, and a beautiful variety of melancholy themes
Which are utilized so well by lonely woodwind instruments and stirring vocals. It’s the most played soundtrack in my collection. The nature of this music never ceases to amaze me. It’s as though the score were from another world, other time. And so thought provoking and beautifully wistful. It defines so many elements for me and transcends the mind, I have been collecting film scores since I was 16, now aged 27 and still this score continues to captivate me like no other. It’s up there with Morricone’s the mission in my opinion. Outstanding effort Hans, if by some dark miracle you read this. I just want to say that I really appreciate the true quality of music you bring to life and the hard work you put into it. I have many of your great scores. And I hope in the future for an expanded release of Beyond Rangoon, there’s so many other great stirring pieces from the film.

This is one of the most beautiful Hans Zimmer soundtracks on the market. Even though it's a little hard to find, it's worthing every single penny. The last track it's simply magnificent. After my opinion, Zimmer is the best contemporary composer after John Williams.

Musique envoutante, magique, sublime! Sa meilleure BO selon moi, dommage que toutes les musiques du film ne se retrouvent pas dans l'album.
