Can't wait to hear this. I am huge fan of Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II.Is nobody going to talk about this amazing soundtrack???I know I´m 10 years late, but god wish this got complete recordings release, so much music is missing...The track in the video I linked sounds decent. Works well for the scene.Back in 2003/2004 some guy made his own fan-made "expanded score". <br>Some tracks were actually OST tracks looped, with some drums added in the mix, some were from an unknown source. I only remember some badly-mixed synth cues that sounded like home-made, experimental material.
would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0
But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the score
Tom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>

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.
