Eh, Shore is a smart composer. He could make it work. I guess whether that's what studios think audiences want is another question entirely...Is it me or are none of the soundtracks on the website showing the sample tracks that you could listen to anymore?Have you heard that Henry Jackman will composing his music for the upcoming 2019 picture called Pokemon: Detective Pikachu?  I wonder what the film soundtrack would sound like.  Hmm...I think that Howard´s style of music doesn´t really fit to the post apocalyptic genreFor a Peter Jackson production I was expecting Howard Shore.
I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.

Okay, so sorry for sounding a bit like Poleschuk on this one, but I have a couple questions about High Incident.

Basically I have heard two different boots: this one, and a second one with 10 tracks running about 21 minutes. This first one sounds to me mostly like John Powell in very early I-don't-really-have-a-style-yet MV mode. The second one is a lot calmer and more melodic (and better!), and it uses the "Main Title '97" theme a lot. But it doesn't sound much like Powell at all. Is that one by Jeff Rona? From the little I've heard by him, it sounds like it might be.

Also, about those themes - who wrote them? Was it really Hans? The more upbeat "Main Title '96" sounds very much like Powell, to me. "Main Title '97" with the trumpet solo could be Hans, I suppose, but I could easily believe it being Powell or Rona as well.

Any clues, Hybrid?

There are a few episodes of this show on YouTube.

And interesting thing: on the main titles of the Pilot - "Main Title '96". On the end titles of the Pilot - "Main Title' 97".

And other interesting thing: "Main Title' 97" are on the 9th minute of the Pilot (night talking of the cops). So, maybe, this main theme was originally Zimmer's hand.

Maybe, the second boot is a score for Pilot?

the more emotional music, which also uses the Main Title 97 theme often, is by jeff rona. you will find many tracks on his website. it has bit of his music for Chicago Hope. i remember, that the Main Title 97 was also used in the first season as the end title. i dont know know why they changed it in the second season. the Main Title 96 was perfect for opening credits. But i think both of them are by hans with trumpet performances by mark isham. at least i always saw his name in the opening credits.

The score for Hi-Incident is sooo great. I wish they show would be available either on DVD or on TV in Austria. I really love the soundtracks from Hans Zimmer especially the ones for Babylon 5 and for High Incident. Keep up the great work. Weiter so!!!
