It was a missed opportunity.<br>Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>Seven with ZimmerYeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't wait
I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.
No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.Itís definitely one of Bayís best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Canít cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subjectUpset about success? Sounds like someone doesn't know a thing about reasonable criticism. :p<br><br>If anyone likes Balfe, then good on them. I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world. Especially if people are still gonna be excited about hearing the work of someone else when a different person is hired (i.e. what JL might've been).Can we please change the subject !!!!!!!!it is so boring now.This page is ment to be about the sound track to 12 Strong
There you go again, accusing me of being upset about Balfe's success when I never said anything like that. Stop putting words in my mouth.AgreedThe point is Edmund and others  donít need to keep getting upset about Balfes success.Dont reply and just focus on other conversations.No one here is interested in hearing anyone bashing any of the great composers on this site from Remote. Grow up or move on.Appreciate the voice of support. :)Good god, this Balfe/Anonymous guys is wreaking havoc! Good thing Djawadi's fans are calmer than Balfe's.

No offence to the show, but this score was completely wasted on it. This is too good of a score to be used on a damn reality television series. If those tracks were used for an action-packed movie, it probably would've been considered one of the best action scores out there. And it would've been very, very popular. I'm sure of it.

Still, props to Hans and Steve for creating this score. While we're at it, here's my personal favorite track:

The main theme is popular. He inspired the theme of Brian Tyler for Thor, a Kingsman track and the main theme of Geostorm.

Plus the Two Steps From Hell track "Road to Revelation". :p

One thing that needs to happen Zimmer should put all of is stuff on iTunes to make it available for everyone all the unofficial releases. It doesn't need to even be complete scores just some of the stuff from scores like this that never got released

For some scores that sound like Contender sequels check out David Vanacore. He's credited in the score here but nobody's said anything about him. He writes for pretty much all of the big game shows and reality shows today.

The theme to Duel is particularly similar to The Contender. To bad they don't sell its score either. Check him out. I was surprised I'd never heard of him. (Listen to the "Reality Drama" samples!)

www.davidvanacore.com

Apparently the only Vanacore albums for sale are Survivor and Eco Challenge on Amazon:

No where! It's called a bootleg for a reason.

@ (...)

Where would you go to get a CD released then ?
It's better to post that you want something released here, than nowhere. I mean, the studios won't read any of the mails, but if the wishes to have something release are posted nowhere, how would ANYone know someone is interested in this ?

Also, there is a chance that Hans or another composer reads these messages. Some time ago Trevor Morris (If I'm correct) asked to be removed from the site. And Disney asked to remove the samples of Pirates music. So people of the industry DO come here. Better try and fail than no try at all.

You're all idiots because this is an unofficial fan site. Hans Zimmer isn't reading these comments and going "Hmm I should listen to these guys." Even if he did, composers don't control the rights over their music, studios do.

Why are we idiots? This music inspires and is probably the most motivating score I've ever heard. If you'd like to listen for yourself, just go to imeem.com and search "The Contender." You won't be disappointed.

Hello Mr.Zimmer I truly enjoy this soundtrack. I pray that you let the world hear this muisc that you have created it gives me strength to keep moving.I think bruce lee himself would enjoy it.

I just finished listening through streams of this album and let me tell you, every track is epic in every sense of the word. "Defeat (Theme 1)" is an incredibly emotional track and will remind you of another Zimmer work, "The Thin Red Line." Other great tracks are "Training" and "Victory." Both are so powerful and so moving, one can't help being touched by Zimmer and Jablonsky's work. The greatest track though, of course is the "Main Theme." Overall, one of the best albums ever and I can't wait to get my hands on it someday.

I've been hoping this music would be released for 3 1/2 years, now. By far the best theme music for a television series!

How many people would have to sign a petition before Mr. Zimmer releases this album? I know I'd be the first one on the list, because for this is one of the most moving albums to date. Just a thought...

Hans Zimmer did not composed the Main Theme, the all score (including main theme) is by Steve Jablonsky, if you listen, the style is 100% Jablonsky, drums, bells.......

Mr. Zimmer, why are you afraid not to release the soundtract for sale? A lot of us fans watched "The Contender" not only for the dream of one boxer to become a champion, but also for the beautiful music that you have so marvelously composed for this series.

For you not to release this wonderful soundtrack is a big disappointment of fans like me who are into inspiritional music. This music stirs not my soul but the souls of other people.

Here is my offer, release the soundtrack for a limited time(60 to 90 days). If a lot of people buy it, then you know you have a hit album that could easily go platimun Share this piece of music with the rest of the world. Besides, would Beethoven have decided to kept his music to himself? Would Elvis only sang his songs to his mother and no one else? Come on Mr. Zimmer, step out of your comfort zone and let the public have a copy of the soundtrack from "The Contender."

The Contender is such a great motivator. As an executive associated with sales people, I'd love to be able to play this song every week at our meetings to get people fired up. As an old boxer, this one song motivates me. It's kind of like the orginal song "The EYE of the TIGER" from Rocky movies.
