Damn Powell is doing a lot of music on his own now a days with not many additional writers. I hope he takes on more project that aren’t just animated. I really miss his music, he’s so ridiculously talented.And even then, people rate before listening to it...The version on this page is actually sound effects-free!Sehr Geehrter Herr Zimmer, du hast viele Fans in Polen. Lassen Sie es uns wissen, wenn Sie nach Polen kommen. Wir haben mehrere Orte, an denen Sie Ihre Arbeit präsentieren können. Sie sind hier herzlich willkommen.<br>-------------------------<br>Dear Mr. Zimmer, you have many fans in Poland. Let us know when you come to Poland. We have several places where you can present your work. You are very welcome here.Credits added !
All sounds really good!<br>Tracks 1, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 16, 19 are wonderful.Macejko: i do tooI for one believe they should not allow user ratings until the album has been released.I really like it! It's like a HTTYD with a twang to it.I do. And other collectors too. LOL.
Felix: some people buy CD-s yet nowadays, some people thinks, if a music is a masterpiece in it's own, then they can appreciate the composer's work with some money, even that money going to the publisherWho needs CDs?? LoLAs far as I know, no.<br><br>Sadly. <br><br>I would love to get my hands on a "clean" version. Love the score!Well ok, but how to get the song itself on physical cd, if its not on this soundtrack. There is now official Single CD yet for the Song ... :/Are there any versions that movie sound effects, such as car noise, have disappeared?
I really hope that for the inevitable sequel they dump the songs and focus a bit more on the actual score. I listened to the album again and there's definitely a lot that they can expand upon. <br><br>Mike Bay (through his movies) is one of the "founders" of the MV/RC sound so it sucks to see him relying on so much freakin' songs nowadays. And it's not only him.....<br><br>That's why themes have disappeared. Composers just don't have the chance to create more.  And I'm sure it's frustrating for them to deal with all of this. So don't blame ONLY the composer when a score doesn't feel satisfying enough. God knows how many other people have a say in all of this...Bay should work with Jerry Bruckheimer again.<br>================<br><br><br>That is something a lot of people are hoping for :)<br><br>The days of The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and Bad Boys 2 were awesome. You saw trailers that simply said "From Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer" and audiences knew exactly what they gonna get. Those were some very exciting days. <br><br>I don't think we will see another Armageddon-sized reunion of Michael and Jerry but least we have their previous movies to enjoy. I'm grateful for that :) <br><br>P.S. Armageddon NEEDS to be re-released in IMAX 3D. It's the perfect movie for this format.doesn't look like it but per the announcement on an 'epic sweeping instrumental orchestral version' of it will beWill the Song "No Time to Die" from Billie Eilish on the CD release of this Album?If you care about Ben's work in horror, you gonna like this (the strings and themes sounds mostly like A Cure for Wellness), and lots of abrasive electronics.<br><br>If you don't care, that's other story.

Anthony have you not a end? It's hard understand you ... You're not to understand music (I have all cd by Zimmer and Powell and I know the two different style) don't write anymore please.

No name It seems like action parts were written by Powell and "non-action" by Zimmer. Great score by the way (and great theme - I think it`s composed by Zimmer, too). )
You're understand perfect!!!

This soundtrack is pure awesomeness. I have all of it on my MP3, and it's just so wonderful I made a list of adjectives describing it:

Beautifully made

If music like this was ever made again into something better by Zimmer, I know it would rock. He IS the greatest composer of all time. Of course, Powell did a good job too.

Fantastic orchestration and the John Powell's percussion in 'Hero' and 'Let The Tournament Begin' are magnificently impressive.

While Simmer and Powell combine to conceive the best possible score for a Chinese tradition musical extravaganza from track to track and excellently maintaining the martial arts tempo throughout, what impresses most is that their the range and variety of work are amazing.

Drums pown it up in my opinion, they are the best insturment out there. Drums are way better then other instrumental grandeur, especially that of oboe and alto flutes, because brass section solos are way to common.

The best percussion I ever heard. Oh yeah!

The track 'Sacred Pool of Tears' and the theme in the same way are perfect fusion of Zimmer's style and Powell style. Good work!

Hear to Ice Age 2 and you will recognize the Powell stile in Kung Fu Panda. But I can hear some Hans Zimmer, too. :-) Great Score

It is sad that the best part is missing from the album. When the Furious Five is going to meet Tai Lung, on the rooftops they go. Fantastic percusions!!!!

Listening to the Credits, I feel there's only a slight variation in the percussion section but it's more or less same as that on the album (at least more similar than the Davy Jones' album and film music! XD) Even though I haven't seen the film yet, I have a feeling we have most of the good stuff on CD. This is gonna remain one of the best scores of 2008! ;-)

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-21 00:00:00
And methinks Powell and Big Z share a fair amount of material on the score, several portions have their signature styles IMO!

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-15 00:00:00
Great, but I still don't understand what you're talking about.

My original post "You 'ear incorrectly! :p" was a play on words, but I think you've taken it the wrong way. :)

Mathias reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-14 00:00:00
Don't make a problem Anthony... I'm verry happy if you ear very well the music

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-13 00:00:00
Well, Kung Fu Fighting is different on this clip (very Powellish in fact) but nothing is new about the rest. I think we already have all good pieces on the album. Still I liked that clip. Very well made and creative!

Jack reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-13 00:00:00
Yeah! It seems that some percussions have been added at the beginning of the song. Nothing more.
Do you think that John Powell arranged it?

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-13 00:00:00
Those percussions are unmistakably John Powell's arrangements, Jack. He uses this special percussion alot for his scores. I think it's one of the many trademarks of a John Powell music.

Hybrid Soldier, I think you gotta check this clip out too. There is a lengthy list of music credits at the end that could make its way to this page! ;-)

Thanks Syl...

It's the first time of my life I can see complete End Credits before I see the film LOL...

Oh sorry Mathias, you're right. It's ALL Hans Zimmer...
