Great new podcast with Steve. Check it out, it's worth it - https://www.score-movie.com/single-post/2018/04/24/Episode-6 -Steve-Jablonsky-Behind-the-Score-Trent-Reznor-Atticus-Ross- Name-That-ScoreI'm guessing that the end credits will be where we hear what Williams wrote for the film, a concert arrangement of the new theme he contributed. So it'll start with the classic fanfare and then lead into that, and then if there's any time left to fill they'll put in some of Powell's material.For the most part I agree with you, especially in regards to continuity. Him writing a third theme for Cap makes no sense whatsoever, considering that the credits of TWS had a more traditional take on his CA theme which is basically what he ended up writing for Civil War. Same with the lack of The Falcon theme, which was even used in Ant-Man. I have a feeling this has something to do with what the Russo Bros wanted however.<br><br>As for the overall score though, I actually think it works great in context. Considering the film is a thriller, the more nuanced approach Henry took here feels very appropriate. And even though itís a short motif, I genuinely like the theme for Black Panther.Listening to all these fan made covers!!! They all are more than awesome. Its feels good how Hans Zimmer is inspiring the world around to create such a great music. Lots of applause to all the fans who have submitted their covers over here. Good luck !!!<br>I have been revisiting a lot of scores of the MCU leading up to Infinity War, and what I don't really understand is why they didn't used almost any of the previously established themes in this one. He even created a new theme for Captain America, when he could have used his own theme from Winter Soldier. In fact, I think Winter Soldier's theme is the only one returning. Age of Ultron, although it was a really chaotic score, at least had some continuity and was a lot of fun, but this score feels flat for the most part of it.<br><br>And I really enjoyed TWS but for me this was a step down. But I must recognize that there are some great action cues, especially in the Airport Battle, but apart from that I didn't found anything that remarkable.
This might sound like a rather... odd question, but I did ask it when it came to Rogue One. Is John Powell going to use a 'classic' arrangement of the End Credits Suite, or is he writing something entirely new? The end credits theme is pretty much a staple of all the films so far and it would be interesting to know what Powell has in mind for his score there.And the release date has finally come !<br><br>MAY 25th !<br><br>Will it be Powell's masterpiece ? I hope so ! But it's going difficult to sound better than HTTYD !Yep, I noticed. And in mp3<br>I guess YT is still the better wayThere's a way to do it but I won't tell you for fear that I get HULK SMASHED by Hybrid. Besides, the file is in 112 kbps, it's barely worth the trouble (and I'm not even much of an audiophile).totally agreed...<br>maybe some way to hack into
I hope the Imperial March is in the score.Thank You NotaPix. That was really helpful. :)<br>I've never found this one either. It's the biggest gap in my HGW collection probably. Wonder why it never got a proper score release, sure it's a bit mickey-mousey and insubstantial but they could have at least put 30 minutes or so on the regular album, not just one track...hello Piyush VC<br>sorry, I hope I have correctly understood your question, I do not know English (google translator).<br>I do not remember well how long my covers have been published here after my submission.<br>but if you would like to publish your own cover of the composer Hans Zimmer here, it is more correct that you address the questions of this type to 'antas' admin.<br>as I said, I hope my answer is relevant to your question.<br>bye :)Anywhere I can find a complete recording of this soundtrack? I've looked everywhere.
Hey there.. Your music score is really good, I liked them all. I wanna know within how many days after your submission, were your tracks posted over here?Can anyone point me to where I can get a copy of this? I'd love to have this in my collection.It's been nearly 27 years since this came out in 1991.Nop, you're not the only one.<br><br>I can say everything i listen John Powell is something with quality and personality.<br><br>How to Train Your Dragon is one of his best. You are missing out. <br><br>But I may be the only person who thinks Face/Off is one of his best scores. I love that score more than nearly any John Powell scores.

Man, this is one where I wish there was a complete score release. To be honest, I like this score a lot more than Transformers. Jablonsky's raw talent here is unbelievable, and it feels like his score, rather than an RCP/Zimmer one. First, I love how there's only 4 themes, Love Theme, Imoogi, the classical piece that plays at the beginning of "Village Attack" which I can't remember the name of, and the D-War battle music that slowly develops throughout the score. This allows these themes to be used to their fullest potential, unlike Transformers where each theme is used 5 times at most because there was just too many to develop.

I also love the atmosphere of this score. Some tracks almost feel like they inspired Jeremy Soule for some of his Skyrim travelling music. Mainly "The Legend Awakes", "Yeouijoo", and "Second Life". The nature sounds, the instrument variety, the purity of the strings, it feels like something you could listen to while traveling through the mountains.

The action tracks, are wonderfully fitting for a monster movie score with the brute, overwhelming force of the horns, the complex string/underscore, it feels classical the way Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings is classical. Familiar, yet unique to the composer.

The way the themes develop is perfect, with the love theme developing into the classical death theme as the score closes out in "Farewell", the way the classical death theme develops into the main battle theme in "The Altar", "Buraki", and "D-War". And of course, the way Imoogi breaks down through the film, and rebuilds until the satisfying and beautiful finale of "Arirang".

This score, while being made for one of the most infamously bad monster movies ever, has so much care and love put into it. I've never even seen the full movie, but thanks to the fantastic storytelling in the music alone, I feel like I've already experienced it. Probably better than if I'd seen the movie if it is as bad as people say. Highly underappreciated Jablonsky score, and one of my favorite scores ever.

Sorry to go on for so long, but this score is like Steamboy for me, where once I start, I have to finish it in the same day because I love how perfectly it's crafted for this type of movie.


Hybrid Soldier2018-03-15 11:36:02
Funny that many people saw Transformers ripoffs in it while it was written a year before...

The film is hilariously bad, but guess what, they are making a sequel !

Jablonsky should come back, just for the joke ! lol


Edmund Meinerts2018-03-15 12:41:11
I enjoyed your impassioned defense of the score. I really ought to give it another listen one of these days, I've got the "Imoogi" cue on a few playlists but otherwise haven't heard it for years. I remember liking it okay though (nowhere near as much as Steamboy, but a solid score nevertheless). I'm especially intrigued by your Skyrim comparisons!


superultramegaa2018-03-15 13:51:40
I do really hope Jablonsky comes back for the sequel. I miss this type of music from him, the more detailed and mostly orchestral stuff. Transformers 1, 2, and 5 are a lot of fun, but not as good as this IMO.

And Edmund, yeah Yeouijoo in particular gives me a lot of Skyrim vibes, particularly the really calm and peaceful opening. Also the classical piece I was referencing was Dies Irae. It's usually used in movie scores to convey approaching death.


Backbiter2018-03-15 15:08:53
Never heard of this one, I'll give it listen based of on your review.

I have to admit that missed this soundtrack somehow. Recently opened it as good old vine. Very good soundtrack. It's very close to Transformers, but different. Amazing that number of people asked me whether it was unreleased music from TFs. Thanks to Steve and his team.

It's a nice soundtrack, although i agree it's not going to be like Transformers (1 and 2) that plays non almost every day at my place. Imoogi and Arirang are the best. Arirang reminds me of "Arrival to Earth", i wonder why?! LOL (In case you didn't notice, i was being sarcastic there). As for the film, it's not great but i kind of liked it. (Prepares to be stoned). All in all, a nice effort by Jablonsky.

I'm agree with Ele. This album isn't equilibrated. However, I add the track 'Legend Awakes' for its first approach of the Transformers 'All Spark' theme.

I disagree...though its definetely Remote Control Productions material, its still good.

Very bad score :( 3 tracks out of 17 are interesting :( (Immogi, Love Theme, Arrirang, and maaaaybe Farewell)

At least it was better than the movie itself (which I can honestly say was probably the single worst movie I've ever been forced to sit through)

YesAsia is absolutely shipping to Europe (and really cheap), you're probably looking at their US site, you have to look at GLOBAL.

Transformers comes very close...however D-War takes my nomination as best Jablonsky score. "Arirang", "Imoogi", and "Love Theme" are simply brilliant...they helped make the movie more enjoyable then what it was.
