Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.The Thin Red Line >> The New World....Good for you?I don't like Hans Zimmer, James Horner is my favorite.Uhh, I don't electronic music ain't gonna work on Alita Battle Angel.
Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing ó but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>
Oh wow! Thatís all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Canít insult me! I am genuinely curious. Whatís this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.
he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?

I do believe this one is Powell's best.

Yeah! The hell are the other comments about though? The Last Stand is miles ahead of X2. You weren't even saying TLS was the best X-men score, you were just saying it's Powell's best score. Man people are dumb

@Hybrid, what happened to James Mckee smith and John Ashton Thomas? We don't hear anymore from them.


Hybrid Soldier2017-03-09 18:56:53
JAT is a regular orchestrator still, for Alan Silvestri, Theodore Shapiro etc. Still very busy.

McKee, from what I heard he had several health problems linked to the insane world of film scoring, so he decided to stay away. Still writes music but mostly for Production Music companies.


Scorefan2017-03-10 02:54:18
Thank you Hybrid.

CongratulationS!! John Powell!!!!!!!!!
I arrived late!!
Main Titles are different, yes. Is best the film version, not this.
But Ok, the songs are phantastics.
The final of Church Magneto and Truck are good.

Meet Leeche & Lake are one of the best songs of album. With an small action theme when Cyclops/Scott goes with moto. And the reencounter with Phoenix/Jean are more beautiful.

The Angel's Cure theme which repites in Finale & End Credits are good. A good theme.

The Death of X..Is good, and begin the Phoenix theme.

X Funeral, with a small theme of Phoenix.

Skating!!! This song begins with a mystery love theme. Amazing and Incredible, yes.

Attack On Alcatraz and Battle for the Cure are good themes, but no re the best of the album.

The best song together with Meet Leeche and Lake is The Phoenix Arises, with one simply why: because the Phoenix Theme with a chorus is Genial. I'm loved this theme.

Finale & End Credits is best and the movie version, because two themes are collaged from Meet Leeche, with End Credits. Two minutes more^^

Yes, this message is large, because this album is Incredible!

It's essentially a ''complete'' album. Everything in its finished form so no film versions.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2007-10-11 00:00:00
Is this the film versions of everything? or is it the official release with extra stuff?

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2007-07-08 00:00:00
The sound is perfect, can't hear any difference to the OST. Too bad the film version of the Main Titles is still missing, otherwise a perfect album.

Yes -- that means the official release has to be bought even if you have this boot

hehehe, it's a bootleg after all, what did you expect OMG? ;-)

Sound quality is not as good as the Varese release :(

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-17 00:00:00
So, the missing 30 minutes arrived earlier than expected. I wish some other scores would follow the same routine. It seems to me that the good parts are already released on Varese's disc but at least this bootleg is not a gapless album. It may help finding the key tunes we're after faster but listening to a track without a beginning nor ending is weird.
