I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.
btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.
Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.
It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(

LOL You're right man!

But then... we may never know. Maybe an isolated DVD score that was named using the DVD chapters? ;-)

I always say it's good to be optimistic. :-D

Good heavens, when did this one come around?! Sounds like it has more to offer than what we've heard so far. I love the tracklisting, it looks fresh and genuine.

Who've listened to this? Come here and tell us about it! :-p

WOW A real Bootleg exists out there?

maybey the people on this site can look into that.

Medivh reply Replies: 0 || 2006-09-26 00:00:00
These bootlegs are coming like expansion sets for games. Each one features new tracks but these are generally sewed together from differnet tracks of either original, the 'more music from' album or sometimes even direct rips from the DVD.

To the fans of this score, I'm pleased to reveal that there is indeed a real, complete recordings of Gladiator out there. However, as you may have expected, it's only circulating amongst a very small group of collectors and so far it has not been leaked to what we call "Mass Distributors"

The tracklisting of this bootleg is:

1. Far From Home (7:05)
2. Hell Unleashed (5:36)
3. You Have Missed The War (4:38)
4. A Pleasant Fiction (4:50)
5. One More Duty (9:29)
6. The Emperor is Dead (4:14)
7. Hail Caesar (3:15)
8. A Soldier's Death (6:41)
9. Mark Of The Legion (4:02)
10. Gladiators, I Salute You (3:10)
11. Battle In Chains (5:14)
12. The Might Of Rome (7:35)
13. Win The Crowd (8:56)
14. I Shall Cheer For You (1:28)
15. The Battle Of Carthage (4:50)
16. My Name is Gladiator (7:50)
17. Terribly Vexed (4:50)
18. A Man For The People (5:29)
19. Maximus, The Merciful (4:37)
20. You Simply Won't Die (4:07)
21. The Last Wish Of A Dying Man (3:58)
22. I'm An Entertainer (5:53)
23. Busy Little Bee (4:53)
24. Shadows And Dust (6:15)
25. Am I Not Merciful? (4:14)
26. Death Smiles At Us All (5:02)
27. Home Again (4:22)
28. Now We Are Free (4:14)

Note: There are silence moments in almost all tracks, probably due to the nature of the corresponding sequences in the film. This makes the actual overall playback of this album much longer than what the total playback of music is. Do not be fooled by the length of each track as in many cases, it's less.

Note: Some tracks have different mixing, More/Less music compared with the ones released on the official album.

Note: There are absolutely no sound effects or dialogues in this bootleg. However, rarely, some tracks open with a slight sound effect or maybe a word from the actors but soon it changes layer to music. These parts can simply be cut off and non of them interfere with or interupt the openning and ending of the music. In other words, all contents have clean fade-in and fade-out.

What can I say, Hans Zimmer is just about the best composer in Hollywood! I love his scores! From Crimson Tide, to Gladiator and The Last Samurai (my personal favorite), his music has been so inspirational to me! I myself love to write music and hold Mr. Zimmer as a musical inspiration for my creations. Keep up the great work Hans, can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Well, it has become clear to me now, that there just doesn't exist a good bootleg. All so-called complete scores are just all fake. (& badly mixed for no reason)

There is no difference. A lot of music is still missing, this is just a very good cut of the still existing music.
