Really want this score!!Do we know if Lorne Balfe will be involved in Dune?  Maybe he could compose the Dune seriesAnd streaming practically dominates how the majority listen to music. Physical media is costly and expensive to manufacture and don't sell very well in stores as everyone prefers to to use Spotify and getting the same album for free. Same goes for movies and TV shows as well with Netflix.For me it's easy.<br>If there is a cd version I buy it. If there is only digital version.....NO<br>I'll pay for music while there are physical format (only cd really). I'm not interested in pay for downloads,Spotify, etcLorne has nothing to do with interstellar
GITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhereI think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.
Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?
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.

I'd actually love to buy the Soundtrack from iTunes where it was released yesterday, but given that I'm from Germany I can't. Why? Well because it is only available from the US iTunes Store. So what now? Is there any estimate on when or if the Soundtrack is going to be released on international iTunes stores?!? Please say they'll have it tomorrow!!! PLEEAAASE ;)

Why do you want to buy it from crappy iTunes ? You can get it on Amazon in CD quality for a descent prize...

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-30 00:00:00
Because international shipping is almost a price of a CD and you can't order anything else - then you have to pay custom duties :(

For a CD-R they could drop price at least to 8-9$

Those import limits are really annoying, I know ... I can do perhaps 2 CDs, so I save some shipping on that ... But I rather spend $20 on getting it on a CD (lossless), than $10 on bad, low quality mp3's (or aac, whatever used).

I'd say $9.99 for mp3/aac is way more prizy than $13.99 for a CD-R.

Only times I may buy a download release (and then I certainly don't do it on iTunes, but rather Amazon), is if that's the only thing available, and I like to support the labels/artists by doing so ... however, when that's said, I have no problem with making CD-R copies of that to others who are unable to purchase the stuff for obvious reasons...

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-30 00:00:00
Eh, what I wrote might sound a bit confusing ... just to clearify, I'm not from the US, so if/when I would like to purchase from Amazon's MP3 Store (..and that's only if it's something that's not made available on CD), I of course need someone to help me out with the purchase, since I'm not able to buy directly from them myself...

You mean a CD-R release. I want this score, but I think the price is a bit too high + international shipping.

Almost for the same price I got Hulk 2 CD-R.

Heres whats on Amazon:

$15.99 for Pre-order. Releases on July 22. Im just happy this soundtrack gets a CD release. I am a very happy camper.

David Buckley reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-13 00:00:00
Some answers. So yes it will be CDR (that's just the way it is - not my choice!) But it will be lossless, so that is good. No idea of price. Hope all will become clear next week.

Well, Amazon uses AZO CDRs.

Azo CD-Rs are typically rated with a lifetime of decades.

And of course you need high quality writer.

I wonder what will be the price of this CD-R?

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-12 00:00:00
What's the problem with CD-R(s) ?

Of course it won't have the same collection/trade value as with a real pressed disc... but isn't it the music that's most important ? I'd rather have a CD-R release (which is not sourced from a lossy source ... can anyone, like Mr. Buckley himself perhaps, confirm that the CD release won't be from a lossy source ?), than a low quality download only release.

And the thingy about CD-Rs is bad because they don't last as long as pressed disc's is just bulls**t ... naturally they doesn't last as long as a real pressed disc, but it's up to each and everyone as to how long they would like the music to last...

It looks like the amazon thing will kick in next week and itunes the following week. So yes, frustratingly, even more delays. Sorry!

Hallo Leute!! ist der Soundtrack heute nun rausgekommen oder nicht???

Jason reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-03 00:00:00
The format of the Amazon release would more than likely be on CDR if Mr. Buckley is going to be utilizing Amazon's Createspace.com services. Hopefully he would consider to have them pressed at some point insteadas most collectors/enthusiasts are not favorable with the CDR lifespan.

Im happy to hear it is finally going to be released. I was about to send out emails of complaint.
