It's 2018, everything is shittyLOL so they wanted a score with no themes...Just random stuff against action music....Makes sense.I know this is another random question, but does anyone know who composed the music for Pirates Of The Caribbean Online? There's an album cover that says:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer<br>Additional Tracks by New Ages and Amir Baghiri<br><br>But on IMDB it says the in-game music was done by a completely different team of composers. Anyone have any sources, or any validation on which is correct?You guys are hilarious.and that means, tom did the perfect job. they wanted a shitty score and tom delivered. i am sure they would have fired desplat, williams or whoever, just because they would have failed. the task was to compose a shitty score and tom did that. their problem, if nobody buys the soundtrack album or avoid to see the film, just because of a bad filmscore. for us it is great, because we save money.
The fact that the directors insisted on a shitty score doesn't absolve the score from being shitty.Go to JXL's Youtube channel and watch his latest video. He talks about the process of scoring the film. If you have a problem with the score, direct your criticism and complains at the director/producers/studio because JXL delivered the score they wanted. They wanted to stay away from themes and wanted an a very alternative score. If Tom didn't deliver that, they would've found someone else who would've done the job and you'll still complain that it doesn't sound how you wanted lol. <br><br>I've heard a couple of tracks which I liked a lot. <br><br>Stretcher Carry is avaibale on soundcloud. It' merely recreation but it's awesome almost like film version.How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lol
Olive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!
I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.

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.
