Hybrid, please tell HZ that this is your favorite score ever, and beg him to play a small little piece from it at the last show in France, as he promised us something special for this show! I'm sure he can be persuaded :-D
There's a new recording session out. How legit/complete is it? Anyone know the source?

It's real, it's complete, and it's 100% legit!
Well it's completely legit and 100% real, but these 2 cues posted here by Hybrid are missing from the sessions:
With these two cues the sessions would be complete.
This is not entirely legitimate. For one, it's partially made from an older fan edit which crossfades some cues. The real sessions have clean openings and endings to each piece. In addition the "demos", as far as I can tell, are almost all fake (or else Hybrid would have surely added them here). They sound nothing like The Rock score. The only real demos are the I, II and III pieces, which come from an old NGS promo.
The demos are real.
I never added some for some reason. But trust me they are all legitimate...
So, da shit is real dawg.....
Dat question is : when is LLL going to make this an official release? You know, give it a good remastering and make it official....
Intrada would be an excellent choice to release The Rock complete film score.
Ya dawg, Intrada would do too...
Given that a certain someone keeps leaking recording sessions that more often than not end up getting an official release (Wyatt Earp, Jennifer 8, The Ghost and the Darkness, etc.), perhaps a label is going to release this at some point in the future? Who knows; the two occurrences may not be linked at all.
Little HZ comment regarding his involvement on The Rock :
"I ended up writing the main themes, the scene where they all get killed... I think I had a hand in most cues by the end. I can't really remember all that much. Jerry, M. Bay and Nick was just not a good combination. Yes, I seem to remember the Hummel speech, and Harry learned how to write a car chase. Maybe a hundred times :)"
Interesting timing. I was wondering about Zimmer's involvement here just a couple days ago. I imagine the album track "Hummel Gets the Rockets" has a lot of Hans in it, and I know his theme is used a lot throughout, but I didn't know he was involved with the cues, really. Thanks for the info.
Folks, La-La Land has to release a complete edition for this score right here, right now for Christ's sake!!!! One the best action scores ever!!!
H-GW: "I basically helped Nick Glennie Smith and Hans get through it - there was a mountain of music to be written and hardly any time (what's new), not to mention probably the most odious director alive plus the eternal task master Jerry "let's torture Harry now" Bruckheimer. The car chase was one of a few that became my responsibility. I thought Nick did a REALLY good job considering the circumstances."
Zimmer: "The main theme is mine, as are a few other bits. It's really hard to tell. I do have a huge influence in there. But I never really wanted to write any of it. It was always supposed to be Nick Glennie-Smith's score."

@Anon: Recording sessions are not necessarily complete. For example, the Blade recording sessions by Mark Isham are not complete, but are still labelled as such as they contain alternate and unused cues. The alternates and film mixes on this disc have NOT been released before and are NOT on any other version. The name of "recording sessions" is therefore more fitting, to differentiate it from the "expanded" versions out there.
The Rock is a rather good movie, but an awesome soundtrack
thx for ur piece of great music I'm a kinda reserved man... I always keep what I feel deep inside not lettin' anyone guess what I really feel, but when I listened to some of these tracks it even drived a tear out of me.
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST FILM I EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE, SO AWSOME WITH NICOLAS CAGE AND SEAN CONNERY TOGETHER IS AWSOME AND I LOVED (u cannot imagine how) THE MUSIC, IT'S ... AWSOME(i wish to make bigger letters but i cant)
Hans Zimmer OWNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i like call of duty modern warfare 2 music too but not as much as THE ROCK.
The Tracklist below is a fanmade expanded score, the "recording session" label is wrong. Its the expanded version added with the tracks from NGS "The Rock Ideas" Bootleg. Fact: A "real" complete is still not available.
I created an own bootleg with all the music released fort his film with this track listing:
01 Opening titles (3:51) 02 Hummel gets the rockets (4:12) 03 Defusing the bomb (2:24) 04 Marriage (00:16) 05 Tours over (3:26) 06 Hummel’s speech (2:35) 07 Marriage II (00:42) 08 Mason breaks the glass (2:15) 09 The chase (8:33) 10 Jade (1:59) 11 The mission (7:21) 12 The mission (alternate) (1:53) 13 Father–daughter-chat (1:46) 14 Welcome to the rock (4:16) 15 Welcome to the rock (alternate) (1:34) 16 The shower room massacre (4:37) 17 Bombs away (4:37) 18 The morgue I (1:44) 19 The morgue II (2:10) 20 Tunnel shootout (4:10) 21 Mason’s walk (5:32) 22 The final hour (4:09) 23 Rocket away (1:51) 24 The air force approved (1:56) 25 Mutiny (5:25) 26 The last rocket (3:06) 27 Frye and Goodspeed fight (2:24) 28 Green smoke (2:36) 29 Saving Goodspeed (3:23) 30 Fort Walton – Kansas (alternate) (2:51) 31 Fort Walton – Kansas (1:29) 32 End Credit suite (5:14) 33 The Rock (ideas)
on the rock cover is are names of nick glennie-smith,hans zimmer,harry gregson-williams,but i dont know who did witch theme,who did all score and who just was helping in work.anybady know who did what in this score???
Well this is a version without sfx. But is not the complete score, The movie runs over 2 hrs and 15 minutes, and many music from the film is not included in this version. Also, we can find this parts of the music in others version but conatins a little sfx. Also, There changes between some tracks from the other versions and this. Please, team of remote control productions, lauch the complete score with all the music and the alternate tracks.
