Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris
Does anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.

Anette has noting to do with Tarja's powerful voice.. She sang the old-Nightwish songs terribly... Anette is not a good singer and I think Tarja will surprise us with a really good album :)

I as well was very pleased with Dark Passion Play. I'm not really a huge Nightwish fan, I just like them for their brilliant use of Symphonic music with metal. I've got all their cd's and I've seen them live two times, so I think I know what I'm talking about.

Anette's voice is something new, something different. Accepting her depends on what fan you are. If you like the music and the band, like me, the new album is just awesome. If you prefer Tarja's voice above all, then you'll probably hate the new album.

As I said, except for her old Nightwish fans I don't think she'll attract many listeners. I never said I didn't gave this album a try. Musically she's nothing without Tuomas - and I say that with the single in my hands.

In my OPINION I think people should be informed and should listen to some of the tracks, if you've heard the new nightwish album you could see it's only shit, totally comercial and the girl It's not right for the kind of music the used to play...
i heard tarja's ciaran's well and is so powerful tarja now is walking alone but she is a great musian also
toumas wrote the songs he didn't sing tarja put the melodies
and the last tour of evanescence amy lee was out of tune in most of the songs but i still like her
I think we all should give my winter storma a try
as i did with dark passion play and i hate it

I really like Dark Passion Play, better than Once (except for Creek Mary's Blood and Ghost Love Score), and I'm a HUGE fan of Nightwish... :-)

personally i think Amy Lee's voice is more suited for this type of music. that being said Tarja has a really nice voice but is better suited in classical music. If she made a classical album i probably would buy it

I agree, Klaas... ;-)



But let's give a little chance to the RC Team... :-D

Except for her old Nightwish fans I don't think Tarja will have lots of succes. Her voice is excellent, but so far she can't offer the quality she could deliver previously with the Nightwish boys.

Musically she's nothing without Tuomas Holopainen, wether you like it or not. I hope mr. Holopainen starts writing filmscores soon by the way, he's a genius.
