Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.Maybe you have a download link?Download link?I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be fun
I love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cue
Lorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(
Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.

Anyone know what the chronological order for this is?


Michael Baker2019-05-01 19:14:57
Should be something like this...

1. Back in Black (AC/DC - missing)
2. DamnKid (DJ Boborobo)
3. Section 16
4. Trinkets to Kill a Prince
5. Mark I
6. Fireman
7. Vacation's Over
8. Institutionalized (Suicidal Tendencies)
9. Mark II (technically the Test Montage suite by Ramin and HZ, but it's used in the film close enough)
10. Driving With the Top Down
11. Extra Dry, Extra Olives
12. Iron Man
13. Gulmira
14. Are Those Bullet Holes?
15. Golden Egg
16. Iron Monger
17. Arc Reaktor
18. Merchant of Death (Driving Montage, a theme suite by Ramin and Ryeland Allison)

If the remaining non-score tracks are in the film, I don't remember where they go.

Hybrid, did you not say a while back that you didn't think Zimmer actually sat down and did any music in here (he just kinda gave Ramin pointers)?

Snake reply Replies: 2 || 2013-03-27 09:02:02
Actually Harry Gregson-Williams was offered to score the film but he had conflicts with The Prince Caspian and Ramin Djawadi was a replacement. I wonder how would Gregson-Williams do the job.


zeroman2013-03-27 15:27:25
I enjoyed what Ramin did for the score to a degree. But no doubt...if Harry had scored it probably would have turned out alot better.

so was Djawdi never really wanted for the first iron man. since Debny, who has composed all Favreus other films is now composing the second (did he want Debny to begin with and the studio decided aginst it. Or did Djawdi just not want to come back?

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-08 00:00:00
Its very bad score... I still can't understand how Hans is involved in so many tracks... This is called the biggest crap of 2008 for a reason.

MK reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-07 00:00:00
I'm very glad that Ramin got this job and in my opinion he also did it well. I don't think that these kind of films need so profound approach. It's all about the fun and entertainment.

This is one of my favorite Remote scores.
Ramin is good, Ramin with Zimmer is cool.

Thanks for adding the individual song credits to this and POTC - it really clears some things up. But where did you find these credits? Are they official or just educated guesses?

Nah, this score was too bland and simplistic for my tastes... and many other people who also disliked it.

There have been far better scores this year.

Viki reply Replies: 0 || 2008-09-13 00:00:00
Absolutely amazing sound tracks, the sound track fits the theme and the movie's sequences of scenes. A lot of idiots have commented in here that its not good enough, some even haven't seen the damn movie, jerks.

And those who moan about a classic piece of rock and orchestral fusion have no taste for anything, bunch of tossers.

meh

This easily one of the best scores of the year! There is no disappointment, the only disappointment is that there are a lot of hot heads and goofs who moan about it.

It's not Djawadi fault too, because he did what the director/producer wanted to have.

John Debney commented on Iron Man in his interview at http://www.scorenotes.com/

He says he was attached (and was Favreau's choice) but Marvel went with a generic MV score... as with many people he didn't like the result.

Still can't believe Djawadi got this gig :-(

Debney would have ruled this... Damn studio tampering!

Not bad, IMO, but I can't help feel it could've been much better. Though I quite like the end result anyway, hehe.

Well I have to say, the movie and the score blew me away. I wasn't expecting what everyone delivered. However, even though I own the soundtrack, working with music a lot myself, I sometimes find missing pieces with movie scores. There is a lot of music in the film not found on it. Does anyone know of anything being released in the future? They market this album as a soundtrack, not a score.

"Hi guys. Does anyone know what are the tracks mixed together in the animation bettween the end of the film and the credits. One is Black Sabbath - Iron Man but the other?"

Yeah, Kudredin. Here you go:

After that awful Black Sabbath song, there comes THE REAL music! That is:

10. Mark II
01. Driving with Top Down
11. Extra Dry, Extra Olives

Enjoy!

How come I cant find a list of players. Who was the drummer, Guitars, Bass, Orchestra????????? Writing is one thing. Playing another. Why are you not giving credit to the musicians who played the score?

jay arvada reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-23 00:00:00
The movie was great, it was touching, as you say it is was. But the score was totally repeating it's theme all through out the movie maybe not exactly during the touching parts,but I feel that if you really listen it all sounds very similar. so yeah I would have rather listened to a more in touch piece of music,than to have listen to some poor knock off of a cheese B flick from the early 00's. So logical or not, the score still sucks. and theirs nothing anybody can do about it. Except for Top Ramin noodles what ever his name is... Thanks for the reply danny boy.

Movie was excellent. Score... hmm... Hans Zimmer with Batman had more punch to it than this, so I would have to say that I'm disappointed - slightly.

I think we can safely say that things could heat up a little more for a sequel. I place my $$ on a better follow through in part II. The only problem?... will Robert Downey Jr. reprise his role or will he figure that the first time out was for an "art" expedition..?

Let's hope he and Gwenyth come back. Excellent chemistry.

Get IM to fight someone with substance... perhaps a war ridden country again but with a diabolical Marvel foe who is behind another arms type operation, which threatens the west again. Hide the foe, generate a political ally, and throw some romance into the second movie... sounds good already!

Danny reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-22 00:00:00
SO you're saying that theyb shuld have just hrown out the whole score and just play Iron Man by Black Sabbath the whole time. even during touching moments. Hmmmm...sounds logical.

jay arvada reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-22 00:00:00
THIS score SUCKED bad. Lacked emotional content, and was really flat. Need proof listen to spider man's score, Iron man by Black Sabbath was all this movie needed, to bad we all had to wait until the end of the movie to hear a real piece music. Oh well better luck next time.
