For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessions
I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)

I love Zimmers work. I listen to the Pirates of the Caribbean scores religiously.

What is the difference between the limited edition and special edition soundtrack for the film, and will we see a complete score in the future?

You know, these clips act as spoilers for me. So I guess I'll abstain till I get the actual soundtrack in my hands and then spend a day relishing it! :D

This is a very promising score. Thanks for that url. The samples on exlibris.ch are amazing! The most promising cues are Agent Of Chaos, Aggressive Expansion, and I Am The Batman. Agent Of Chaos uses the cue at the end of the End Credits Suite from the first Batman movie. Go to about 3 and 15 seconds left in the piece and that is the cue I'm talking about. Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard are going to deliver on this one. And the theme, or rather, the one note motif for The Joker will send chills up your spine! Amazing music; I can't wait for this one!

Why So Serious (probably the one note motif) sounds a lot like the Hannibal score. Wich is a good thing. The 15th of July is still so far away!

One note motif???

WTF is one note motif?

The smallest musical motif consists of two notes!

Thanks for the link!

Totally amazing! Zimmer and Newton-Howard are using the old themes, and yet The Dark Knight will be loaded with bunch of new ones!

Outstanding!

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-20 00:00:00
I believe the Joker's one-note motif is that rising note heard in "Why So Serious"?

johnny reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-20 00:00:00
The one note motif is heard in the first track, which i think is also the bank heist scene...not sure though. I dont know if the one note thing is a perfect motif for him, but i guess depending on how Zimmer layers it it'll take on a life of its own...

i heard the samples though and DID hear alot of rehash themes from the previous soundtrack...Supposedly they wrote over 2 hours of music....Last thing I wanna hear is the same cues from the previous soundtrack on here...

Hybrid, you're not objective! :D (for thunderbirds)
I like the work who has been done on Batman Begins but this isn't the best that a duo like Zimmer and Newton Howard can do!
Listening the samples (and it's an extract maybe not representative of the ensemble), i don't find a real surprise, a big theme (hum.. maybe in the last track??).
For me, it's a copy-paste from the prequel with two three years of maturity of the themes. And it's over! But I hope I miss!

Ok i think everyone needs to just chill out and wait to hear the score for The Dark Knight before making any comments. I'm sure it will be great and i can't wait for it, but i'm not going to critique it on 30second clips.. C'mon guys and girls, your all starting to make this site annoying to visit! Everyone needs to just enjoy with their ears and let go a bit! People here are starting to leave comments as stupid as the ones you see on filmtracks.com. Please people... learn to just enjoy music, love or hate it, but don't spend your spare time talking about the technical points. It takes the fun out of listening to music. Peace to you all! :)

I don't know what a one-motif is because like one of the previous posters said "the smallest musical motif consists of two notes." It will be interesting to see how Mr. Zimmer uses this "one note" in different ways. I can't wait until July 15th.

Because Zimmer does fantastic Album everytime! ^_^

Hum.. I'm a huge fan of hans and no.. hans doesn't always good scores. Example, Thunderbirds. :)
And more, Batman Begins, even if it's an efficient and a powerful score, the result isn't the best that you can wait of hans zimmer and james newton howard!
I'm decepteid by the approach taken in "Dark Knight". It seems a dark score, very dark, too dark? Batman isn't a hero?? Bad new!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-18 00:00:00
Thunderbirds isn't a Zimmer score, he just wrote the main themes...


And... I love Thunderbirds... Junior Mission is an amazing track... :D

"The point is to make more money :)"

Won't they make more money if they include only four bonus tracks on each release so finally combining we get a nearly complete score? :D

I don't understand why people vote for the release then this one isn't yet released.. Fans are very troubled guys..
