Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.<br><br>On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack
In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modern
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.
Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..

In my opinion this is the worst score of the franchise. Electronic chaos.


Leo2015-09-02 17:42:58
I don't know, I think it fits the theme of chaos and revenge the game portrays, and the electronic 80's vibe in some of the tracks is quite good, lol :P

Leo reply Replies: 4 || 2015-06-15 21:16:37
It seems Justin Burnett has receive full credit for composing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain...
I'm not sure what to feel right now, Harry Gregson-Williams became the soundtrack producer, and no sign of Akirhiro Honda or Ludwig Forsell


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-15 23:34:08
That's true... Well there are 2 different teams on the project, usually the "Hollywood" one and the japanese one (like MGS 2 & 3 (HGW / Hibino)...

The US one usually gets all the attention in the trailer, but I can assure you Forsell and the rest of the japanese team did its share ! :)


Boldizar2015-06-16 03:03:35
Yea Hibino is always around creating the awesome in game tracks.


Leo2015-06-16 05:21:31
Do you happen to know if Burnett, Harry, Lurwig or Honda composed the what it seems to be the theme for Quiet in this trailer?

TheDude2015-06-16 12:00:39
Well, Ludvig's credited as "Lead Composer" check out the screen towards the end of the trailer with all the finer print credits.

I love this soundtrack! I'm Harry Gregson-Williams's number 1 fan!

However, I can't believe he was confirmed to be the composer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, because I don't like the films. But who am I to judge. He always surprises me. Let's see how he does it with the next Twilight movie.

I probably considered this weakest out of the series. The music in this game isn't that great, except for a few parts. Though I do have to say metal gear solid soundtrack is probably by far just a synth soundtrack for background listenining. Metal Gear Solid 3 proves that HGW can do a great job to these series. I also understand that HGW did not do the first metal gear solid and thats why it failed in the music department in my opinion.

Good score, but very synthetic and not very original. A pure "Remote Control" productions style. HGW was better a few years ago. When he composes in the pure action-style, he's not original and very good. But it's a game score, not a movie score.. He'll never accomplish a good performance like "Metal Gear 2" and his arrangement of Tappy's theme..

starberry reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-04 00:00:00
so, uh, what is the official word on the status of a "main theme"?

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-04 00:00:00
What do you mean official word? The main theme is probably HGW's cue from MGS3 as plagued said. Who knows why they decided not to go with TAPPY's original MGS theme this time. Maybe it's because of the accusations of plagiarism or they just thought they'd give old Snake a bit more nostalgic tone...? Anyway, I have to say I felt HGW's score to be quite overshadowed by KONAMI's own composers' score this time. Never thought I'd say something like that.

plagued reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-03 00:00:00
the main theme has been cut from this score.. the cue HGW wrote for MGS3 (before the main/classic theme cuts in at the end) is the only thing that carried over to MGS4

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-03 00:00:00
As of now, the soundtrack will only be released with the limited edition of MGS4. I don't think it will be the entire soundtrack though.
