Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.
A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :p
Hi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comThat's the 'Album Version' of Time To Suit UpI'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up. <br><br>It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?Cheers mate
I agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)

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

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?

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.
