Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.
Sure thing. PM me on YouTube, I'll send you  the link :)I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Great work, Macejko. Do you have a lossless link for this?Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.

Man, I long forgot about this score (probably because it got overshadowed by Transformers). But, after rediscovering it and revisiting it, I didn’t realize how hauntingly beautiful this is. A true Jablonsky hidden gem.

Side note, any idea what happened to the man? I know he has a Pete Berg movie coming out soon, but not much else than that. Really missing his scores as of late.


Bayhem2019-08-08 15:31:42
He became a father. One kid and another one, soon after the first. He made it clear in interviews that he's focused more on his family. Which makes sense after 5 huge Transformers movies. lol.

As Steve himself said, scoring one Transformers movie is like scoring 2 normal movies. He worked on other projects at the same time, so you can imagine how tough and exhausting it must've been for him and his crew. And for him and his family.

I miss him too, but I totally get why he decided to step back for a while. And it's not like he isn't working. He's got that big comicbook movie too - Bloodshot. And probably other projects we still haven't heard.

The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite.

It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.

I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.

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.

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

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.
