Search for "filmtracks".Sorry, just found it.Tried that, couldn't find an author named Clemmensen who reviewed it. (I don't know where to look I haven't seen this guy's reviews before).Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.
I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.
Heís definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the ďissuesĒ with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? Ű_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the ďCatwomanĒ riff (not the main theme) in ďBar ShootoutĒ and ďNothing Out ThereĒ sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>Iíve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelicaís music from OST, Megamindís main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batmanís theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where itís just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolanís decision.

If anyone knows, please share. It is so well done. It actually sounds a lot like Flea but it probably isn't.

I LOVE THE TRAVELING SONG!!!! LOVE IT!!!


Iíve been around the world, in the pouring rain
Feeling out of place, really feeling strange
Take me to a place, where they know my name
Cause I ainít met nobody that looks the same

Iím a fish out of water, lion out of the jungle
[He a fish out of water, lion out of the jungle]
I need my peoples, my peoples, take me to my peoples
THEY GOT JUNGLE FEVER, SHOW HIM SOME LOVE,
SHOW HIM LOVE.

Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to
Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iím home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven, heaven

Traveling the world, like a touring man
Been around the planet in the foreign land
Iíve seen things that Iíve thought Iíve never seen
Take me to a place where they live like me

Iím a lion out the jungle, fish out of the ocean
[Heís a lion out the jungle, fish out of the ocean]
I need my peoples, my peoples, take me to my peoples
THEY GOT JUNGLE FEVER, SHOW HIM SOME LOVE,
SHOW HIM LOVE

Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to
Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iím home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven,

Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Iím in heaven,

Oh and Iím feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
[Iíve been around the world]

Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Feeling like Iím in heaven,

Itís like Iím in heaven
Itís like Iím in heaven
Iím in heaven

Itís like Iím in heaven

I wish this soundtrack release would have more instrumental music, which is featured in the movie itself ... I miss a lot of music from 1h+ in the movie
is there some chance there will be a second soundtrack release like an addition or extention ... I mean, sometimes it happens and I really wish I could hear some more of this fantastic music!

Once Upon a Time in Africa, Rescue Me, and Alex on the Spot all make great use of the now infamous Zooster Theme. This score is yet another gem is Hans Zimmer's crown of musical greatness. Job well done.
