Sorry, just found it.Tried that, couldn't find an author named Clemmensen who reviewed it. (I don't know where to look I haven't seen this guy's reviews before).Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).
Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.
'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :PWhat site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.
As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.

@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.

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

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-19 00:00:00
hehehe, it's a bootleg after all, what did you expect OMG? ;-)

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-19 00:00:00
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.
