@Michael Baker - I can’t be the only one who read that as Han Solo right?Yeah... Wait till CD 2 and I'm sure we'll get a much stronger idea of what's solo Hans in here.@Edmund<br>I wonder if this is one of those situations where the material in film is derived heavily from the suites, with everyone either arranging it or adding elements onto it. Just guessing of course, I’m sure we’ll get a clear picture once the bonus stuff gets released.<br><br>And apparently there is about 16 hours of music “lying around”, going off of what Hans mentioned in the Vi-Control forums."heavily influenced" indeed :D <br>I really love Amity and I love how the theme appears in several other cues:<br>Reckless which features an epic/action rendition <br>Insertion = a short quote at the beginning <br>Coda = another call back to the theme<br><br>Been listening to the score since I saw the film. Love it. Eagerly waiting for CD2. I wonder if it includes an extended version of the last 2 minutes of Insertion - INCREDIBLE.I guess I should know better at this point but I'm still a little disappointed that there are no solo Hans cues. Although I suppose there could be some hidden inside the longer album tracks.
Because it's heavily influenced by Henry Purcell, that's what Hans said :<br><br>"Dark Phoenix is all Henry Purcell... I felt the last few bars of “Dido’s Lament” with the endlessly descending line and the “Remember Me” perfect for the characters... less the tune, more the harmonic movement"Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)
Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.
CD RELEASE?Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?

Checked ASCAP and BMI, this is what I found:

Buckley, Nick Glennie-Smith

Monkey King and Warlord, Part 2
Training Montage
Sparrow Dies

and apparently Halli Cauthery helped write Let the Journey Begin


Knight2019-04-12 08:16:14
Any idea if Nick's contributions are on album, Hybrid?

Bayhem reply Replies: 9 || 2018-10-30 15:28:15
Such a beautiful and layered score. David Buckley deserves as much hype as Lorne. They're both the same age, started at pretty much the same time, they're both pretty active now, yet no one seems to talk about Buckley. While "Lorne talk" is all over the place.

Buckley deserves more recognition. And I would even argue that when it comes to more emotional cues, he's better than Lorne. It's like he took the best from Zimmer and Powell. My opinion....


bildchen2018-10-30 17:48:44
mhm, interesting. i have to admit, i never heard to any of his scores. will start with this one. do you have any more tips for me?


Mephariel2018-10-30 22:30:45
The Forbidden Kingdom is much better than anything Lorne Balfe ever scored. No joke. It is actually one of the best RCP scores of that decade.


Michael2018-10-31 15:54:12
“Better than Lorne Balfe”

HA!!!!!!!!!

Thats why Balfes gets big movies and Buckley doesn’t then is it ? Exactly


Mephariel2018-10-31 16:21:44
Getting big movies doesn't mean better composer.

Balfe also arguably gets bigger films than Carter Burwell, Patrick Doyle, and John Debney.


...2018-10-31 17:57:58
This year Balfe got bigger movies than Zimmer himself... does that make Balfe better than Zimmer lol


Hybrid Soldier2018-10-31 19:20:29
If you keep going the route you're dangerously taking, I'm simply erasing this conversation.


superultramegaa2018-10-31 20:38:51
Lorne Balfe is better than Howard Shore... because he gets more big movies in this period of time. Nice logic, Michael.


Anonymous2018-11-01 01:39:47
wow Hybrid Soldier. dictator much?


Hybrid Soldier2018-11-01 18:45:10
Yes, very much.

Magnificent score!

It's great to see how the future always look great at Remote Control Productions with now David Buckley making a great one of his own after the likes of Zimmer, Mancina, the Gregson-Williams brothers, Glennie-Smith, Dooley, Jablonsky and co. made it before him from the same studio.

It's possible, but some of Harry Gregson-Williams material pops up in this score too.

JT83 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Nevermind. For some reason they put it as the album's *last* track. Weird, but acceptable.

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Excellent score. It sure deserves the wait. It's rich with thematic ideas and ethnic elements, the sound quality is crisp and clear and the mix is superb. It's very hard to believe they were on the narrowest of budgets when recording this thing, when you compare it with some of the big budget scores that's coming out these days.

This one is highly addictive for those who, like me, love exotic/ethnic film scores. Can't wait for David's future works now!

JT83 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Listening to the CD, very happy. But no 'Title track' theme? :(

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
You're not wrong dude. But that's the only moment of the whole score where a Batman flavored tune is heard and I assume this is the reason that Hybrid Soldier chose this one for the samples.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Maybe David Buckley was a ghostwriter on The Dark Knight. lol

Klaas reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Perhaps I'm entirely wrong, but to me it seems that the beginning of the extract (Track 19) sounds extremely similar to the extracts I heard from 'The Dark Knight'. Anyone else noticed this? I was wondering because for as far as I know these two scores have nothing to see with eachother...

(But as I said, perhaps I'm totally wrong. I don't have both scores on cd yet, this is purely based on some extracts.)

Well I do of course realize that CD Audio Quality is superior to 'crappy' iTunes, but I happen to be fine with the quality offered, without having to have another CD lying around the house. I simply prefer digital downloads, since I listen to them on my iPod at work most of the times anyways. So there: I am no audio quality affectionato, but I am a guy who's willing to pay good money for this soundtrack, because I seriously like what I heard so far. Well I can't, which in the end is of course not anyone's problem but mine. However I'd still like to at least know if and when there is potentially a way to obtain the soundtrack in Germany and be it 'just' as a CD release that I can buy from the German Amazon (though I'd still prefer iTunes) :)
