Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

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.


Miralsice2019-08-17 22:09:22
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.

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.
