So Zimmer being listed as the main theme composer at the top of the page is inaccurate too? It definitely sounds more like Lorne than Hans.h ttps://www.youtube.com/watch? v=sekmQqx OhWM<br><br>From the developers.<br><br>Producer: Hans Zimmer<br>Composer: Lorne Baffle<br>Symphony Orchestra: Chamber Orchestra of London<br>Recording Studio: Abbey Road Studio<br><br>Fun theme by Lorne.But maybe at that time he didn’t have that version yet (in his mind i mean)<br>But... the intensity was crazy!Everything is great, except one thing - he did not add that intense music that played on the train when there was a battle. Well maybe I missed something while listening the album.Zimmer = Lorne is your answer.
WAA WAA WAAAAAAAAWhat's with the credits here? Howard Shore? No Lorne Balfe?I genuinely was surprised that they went with Richter in the first place. <br><br>Literally just came out of the movie and I can’t believe such a dull and generic score could come from the names attached. What happened? Other than that beautiful almost sweeping string theme (that went nowhere) - there’s nothing. <br>I kept waiting for the music to peak and reach a hundred but it never did. <br><br>It’s no Interstellar, no First Man, no Gravity, not even The Martian.Link to said theme?The synth man creating a mostly synthesizer score? what a shock
...because that's what Hans doesMain theme is on Youtube. I quite like it. I prefer Hans doing themes like this rather than the stuff he is doing with FIFA.I'm surprised no one is talking about this one, its one of Rupert's best scores imo.Lately I have been listening to the album carefully, and the truth is that I did not quite understand why Hans did not just use a big orchestra instead of the synthesizer.It would have really been interesting to see Ritcher scoring a chase on the photo, although without a doubt his work would not have been anything generic.
Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.

"Does anyone hear any choral work in this release or Body of Lies?"

"Kill No Cop" has some choral bits, and some unreleased cues do as well.

Does anyone hear any choral work in this release or Body of Lies? There is a small choir ensemble listed in the booklet.

somebody should write to marc streitenfeld or the movie comapny and say that people around the world want a more complete score. this isnt the first time, body of lieas and hannibal also got som realy amazing soundtracks wich isnt in the orginal score or in bootlegs

Lasse, why looking for a fake bootleg as it is... well... fake ?
And bootlegs, as they are bootlegs, have pretty unpredictable "releases" : sometimes they appear before the commercial CD, sometimes it is 3 months later, sometimes 10 years later... and sometimes they even get lost in the limbos of years...
You can't predict anything. And by the way, you cannot rip the music only from a DVD, you always get all the sound effects with it.

It should have been out, this isn't a bootleg - its the actual score.

I thought there was like 50 minutes of score? Not this 39 minute score. Ugh oh well, the score is really unique.

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2008-02-20 00:00:00
I'm gonna buy it anyway because I think the score is great no matter how little of it there is. I bet it's the same stuff we have on the unofficial promo release, but you still gotta show support.

I agree with Kaya, It seems very short on playing time, I can't see the value in adding this to my collection.

It's amazing to see that they're feilling the CD with source music instead of the score. hehehe

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2008-02-07 00:00:00
I still can't believe how little score is here. I read somewhere he recorded like 118 minutes for this movie or something.
