Olive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!
I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.
Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.
@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...

Hybrid Soldier2011-10-19 12:11:56
And so your first reflex is to come here to post a tracklist ?

Next time, don't... :S

And this is very old news... For me anyway...

Anonymous2011-10-19 16:20:40
uuuuh yeah for you. you're soooo cool. -.-

I've posted the tracklist, so everyone can see it. why not? everyone should know that there is a 48 track score out there and not only the one with 14 tracks.

Anonymous2011-10-21 06:16:56
Hybrid i don't understand your comment. So if anyone else comes here and put a tracklist for you is nothing, but when you, in the past, posted a tracklist you look that everyone here in the forum says "Thanks Great Hybrid, You Are A God In This. And by the way, i don't know, even the websmasters of this page never wrote this, you write here and there that you have "many connections" and ultimately "work in some way with the remote control team". So, if for you it's an old new this tracklist, just don't write anything and let the fans of this comes here and write something that's in new for the most of the fans. Why you didn't post this before? Please shut up Hybrid you are not the God Of this.

smith2011-10-21 06:36:05
hybrid just showed us this "elite"-thinking. they think they are something great, because they have music that hasn't the public. It's not the very first time that he showed us this behavior. he became very big-headed.

to write stop posting real complete track-listings and telling everyone that it is SOOOO old news for him, is really really really lame.

Shame, because i thought in the beginning hybrid were a nice guy, but after posting some of this crappy posts from him, where he wants to tell everyone that he's something better makes him small and a jerk.

just my 2 cents.

Hybrid Soldier2011-10-21 07:51:25
Bla bla bla...

Because this is NOT THE PLACE to post tracklists like that ! I've said it before, I'll say it again...

Just think of me like I'm Falcone from Begins... ;)

Karambaru2011-10-21 10:20:38
I think I heard team recently had some issues with RCP for adding bootleg tracklists here, that's why they are a bit touchy when people keep coming here to add new ones.

When I see both of you acting like whiney b**ches with Hybrid (who is just the guy who brought you so many informations and complete scores in the past) I know why we "the elite" aren't sharing music with you any more !
And we're not "elite" btw, we simply decided to be active instead of passive, and sometimes helping people in the studios can be rewarding. Think about that before critisizing.

smith2011-10-21 12:03:36
@ Hybrid: But why not? it's a public place where we can talk about the scores. And if there is a complete listing, why not posting it here? Just tell me a reason. Just saying because you don't want it is not a reason.

@Karambaru: I already said, Hybrid was a nice guy, until some months ago. But it becomes more often where he states posts like this that it is SOOOOOO old news for him, or when some is happy about a complete score he answers like "yeah i've heard to it 2 years ago, so it's so old for me". Posts like that are unnecessary don't you think? Why don't let people be happy or excited when they get something they entirely wish.

And not sharing anymore? You never shared something! Music should be for everyone available. And not only for you guys out there who are thinking to be something better then others.

And please get back to topic now. I love this score and was SO happy when i saw the complete one. I simply love this score.

cheesy2011-10-21 13:40:57
@Hybrid Do you mean Fox from Begins?

Sorry for glossing over the the majority of these comments here, you just have no idea how sick I'm getting of all this complete score crap. I mean, I love them, but still... can't we talk about something else for once? I mean, as other users have said before, this place has really gone downhill. And I may not be totally innocent, but still, this is becoming a gray market.

Am I now an idealist for wishing we could just talk about the actual music again?

Mr. Fate2011-10-21 14:30:51
From smith: "Posts like that are unnecessary don't you think?"

Yes, I do think that--I think that all of your posts are unnecessary. Karambaru has some powerful words, and he really knows how to say the right things. It's whiners like you and Anonymous that are in the wrong here. I've never viewed Hybrid Soldier in a bad light, but you guys sure are trying hard.

This site sucks because of folks like you.

Anonymous2011-10-21 23:31:52
Karambaru you never share or shared jack s**t. too worried about the consequences, hm? crawl back into your gloryhole of scores and never return

Mr. Jones2011-10-22 20:51:06
hybrid is just a fanboy who has his 'connections' and gets special stuff from remote control productions. sometimes to hype up scores, sometimes cause hes bored. he doesnt actually work in the group, but pretends to. he then hands down some of those scores as time goes on, eventually leaking to that fine place we all know. he has all you hanging like a thread, just like I did, only difference is hes not selling anything. kind of ironic, dont you think?

Mr. Fate2011-10-22 21:51:17
Huh. Interesting. However, I am not getting what the irony is in that.

So, Mr. Jones...whatever *did* happen to that music you teased us with? I find it intriguing that you would bring up your own actions in comparison to Hybrid's. Perhaps you are just another one of those folks that likes to tease the less fortunate with the music we don't and can't have.

But some things have changed now. We have an actual bootleg of that Pirates score with quite a lot of unreleased music on it. How does your version compare with this one--if you don't mind my asking?

Mr. Jones2011-10-22 22:52:46
I merely wanted to know how far people would go to get this music they love. turns out it goes pretty far, seriously some of you are pathetic. its gonna be out soon, just watch for it. I can only imagine how many scores will be out on the realm by jan 2012

tom2011-10-22 22:58:12
any chances for last samurai?

Mr. Fate2011-10-22 23:08:39
This has been quite a year to be getting some much sought after scores, but I find it hard to imagine what you are envisioning right now. Still...was the music you posted actually real, or were parts of it borrowed from somebody else's edit? I'd think the complete score to that movie would have far more tracks than what you posted.

If you don't mind my asking, again: what scores do you see getting out around the time frame you stated?

Anonymous2011-10-23 04:56:36
Just Remember: This site is a fan-site. So, like a fan i write something new about a score, that is new for me. And, if this OLD NEWS for you Hybrid, well, don't write anything. And, like you say this is NOT THE PLACE to post tracklists like that ! I've said it before, I'll say it again...", well, tell us where do we post tracklist. Just curiosity, i posted the tracklist of Jumper complete Score (because this exist 33 Tracks) and you say that it's not true and was a fake. Many days after, you posted the tracklist of jumper complete score, and suddenly, that tracklist dissappear. So, you cannot accept that ONE FAN, post and find something that you never had. It's interesting.
