I feel like this is simultaneously the most enjoyable and least interesting Zimmer score of the last several years. It's nice to listen to, but it's basically the 1994 score rerecorded and tweaked in just a few places. Those tweaks do produce some highlights especially in the stampede and final battle sequences, but it's hard to think of this as a major effort, really. Yeah, it's good, but we've known that The Lion King is good for 25 years.I seriously don't understand why they didn't do two separate releases like most musicals do (La La Land comes to mind - perfect release). <br><br>A soundtrack album and a score album. No missing tracks, no fuss. And optional 2-CD set containing both.<br><br>Instead, they went with a soundtrack album with some of the score and another song album for whatever reason that is lol.The second half of the new "Elephant Graveyard" is basically note for note "I Was Just Trying to Be Brave" from the 1994 version as well, just with a few changes in orchestrationThis is only HGW's score, a good chunk of it was rejected.Wonder if it will take 20 years for an official complete score XD Not to mention any unofficial leaks (it took a long time to even get that for the original film). TBH, I'd prefer a proper release of any score any day of the week.<br><br>To answer the question above me: Mostly it's new material using the same themes from 1994, though if my interpretation the OST is correct, the hyenas and Timon and Pumbaa get new themes. The only true 'copies' of music from 1994 are Circle of Life and Remember, but even then, they are at least partially-new recordings.
Do we know who wrote what?Is it all material from 1994 or is it new 2019 score?I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).
Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"
Hahahahaha well I’m glad he got the credit then :DI absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!

I have the full CD soundtrack to this movie.I also have it on my iPod.I love this movie and the music score is fantastic.I listen to this soundtrack fairly often.Based on my own research over the years,its not available on the market for purchase,and its no longer manufactured,so unless your extremely lucky and come across a used copy,(and probably expensive) your probably wasting your time looking for it.Luckily,a friend of mine had a special promo copy of the soundtrack shortly after the movie came out,and gave me one,or I wouldn't have it either.I have no idea where he got it,although he did have an uncle that worked for TNT network,but a small amount of these soundtracks were issued in special promo press release kits to studios and promoters.There were once a couple online stores that used to have this soundtrack in very limited stock,(one site only had 2 in stock at the time)but that was clear back in early 2006 when the movie was still new,and once they sold out,they were gone forever.There are only a handful out in the wild.I imagine the lucky few that own this soundtrack are holding on to them with a tight grip.I'm very lucky to have this soundtrack,its ultra rare,and like other very rare albums,I seriously doubt this soundtrack will ever be produced for general release to the public.

I've been looking for this music/score for years and have finally managed to get the Intro by hook and humbug! I don't know what possessed Geoff Zanelli to keep this to himself - he could have made a small fortune on the soundtrack, but whatever.

I figure that if he's that stingy, I can humbug his music, so after much humbugging, I finally got it loaded into iTunes at 1411kbps. Not bad for humbugging. As Apple/Steve Jobs once said - Sosumi...

I too would love to buy a CD of Into The West Original Soundtrack. If not a CD, then maybe a site where we can pay for a download of this great music.

It's such a shame that a normal soundtrack hasn't been released. It's Zanelli's Best Work and we can't get a normal CD of this. Maybe some labels are planing to release it? I'm hopping.

If you go onto Geoff Zanelli's website and into the music section, you can actually hear seven full length songs from Into the West. The website is http://www.geoffzanelli.com/
The website has the full length version of "Into the West" which is AMAZING!! "Sundance" would have to be my second favorite.

I to have suffered the disappointment of not being able to find the soundtrack. But there may be a glimmer of hope, if you are willing to do a simple task: Write to Steven Spielberg. Tell him how much you want the cd, and ask him to provide one. I did just that, if he receives enough letters, he may well make one! Send your letter to:
