It's out there.Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.
Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..I was meaning in addition to stairs and rooftops is there any other segments that play that partI would rather Balfe do the next Bond.MI5 Rogue Nation was a completely breath of fresh air in the series. Thanks to McQuarry and of course Cruise. But also, Kramer take the music in a new level and for me it's one of the best scores in the series. Balfe elevate the music to the netx level. No one doubt is the best in the series, even Balfe took some motifs from Giacchino's scores. So if Balfe return it would be awesome hear what could be the next level in his music, but if Kramer returns, is sure he will take the music to all new level. One of the things Cruise take care in the series is the music, he has a good ear, so many people were surprised when he choose Balfe to score the film.I think that it's ridiculous that there is going to be a mission impossible 7 & 8. Hopefully, these are going to be the last ones and that they end on a high note. I do want Balfe back if they are going to make these films.
I liked Fallout but Rogue Nation is where it's at. I wish Kraemer could return :/@ Jason Stairs & Rooftops was a standard track not a bonus<br><br>@ Peter cruise wanted a different composer and director for every film so they all have a different feel. McQuarrie made history there as the first filmmaker to do 2 M:I filmsStairs and rooftops is a fantastic track.Does anyone know why Kraemer wasn’t used?<br>I was at Admiralspalast on Sunday evening and I completely agree with what you wrote!Guys... he-he's not getting it...
was that segment in any of the bounus tracks? from LALA LAnd.I honestly love stairs and rooftops that track I could listen to that segment from about 3:25-4:20 over and over again. so I hope balfe does it againRogue Nation was a great soundtrack but Fallout has to be one of the best action scores since The Dark Knight.I hope they keep Balfe on for the next 2 films@Edmund Not at all! I think Kraemer’s score honestly is one of the best in the series, especially with the way he approached the material. On the same token though, I am also a massive fan of what Balfe did. A different approach for sure, but it still helped elevate the film much in the way Fury Road’s score did for that film. <br><br>Personally though, I feel like bringing a new composer on board to give a different take would be the most ideal, but that’s just me.From the way the director and editor talks about Balfe and his music On the DVD I doubt they would ever  get Kraemer back.Even Cruise has said it’s the best Mission soundtrack they have ever had .<br><br>The score to Fallout makes the film which the last time I felt this was Dunkirk.

Don't you have any idea of giving the same shot on BATMAN BEGINS? (- -)

You're right, I hope this opens the door for more Zimmer Complete Score releases. He really deserves that. And as a big big fan of the BHD score, I'd say it should be the next one ! The official score CD didn't featured much music used in the movie. Let's pray. :)

this was released for me!! you don't want to double dip? pity for you! and you are no Bat-Fan, or Zimmer fan for that matter! you should just leave the site and never come back. you know who you are!!

...a complete zimmer score! cool! but i will not buy this thing. i spend 25,95€ (33 dollars) for the Bonus Packaging-Edition of the score. and now they want me to pay another 45,95€ (58 dollars) for this 2cdpack?
excuse me warner rec! this is nuts! why'd they bring out the second cd as a stand-alone score like "more music from the dark knight"? this is in german so called "geldschneiderrei" or "abzocke"!

The track Agent of Chaos is missing some cue in between. The cue is when Batman kicks the door in and finds out he was tricked. The Joker theme in that part was a little longer. Also the last part of Agent of Chaos was a little longer. But oh well

I hope this is followed by many more Zimmer expanded scores which deserve it, like The Lion King, PoTC, BHD etc. But for now, I'm eagerly looking forward to this!

Heaven be praised, the FIRST official Zimmer expanded score ever! No more crappy bootlegs to hunt for this one!

Kudos, Warner Bros.!! :D

The first official Zimmer expanded release was The Prince of Egypt, if I remember correctly.

Not a big fan of the cover art, but nonetheless I'll be purchasing this 2cd set. I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Nice, but I feel no need for more to be honnest. I'm quite satisfied with the standard release, it has all the music I wanted to have.

On a sidenote; 'More Music From Gladiator' offered extra music in a legal way as well. The two Gladiator cd's together came pretty close to what I consider as 'Expanded'.

If the tracklist is correct, it would seem CD1 is the same as the one disc release, while CD2 offers all the new stuff... (?)

Now I don't know this score very well (yet), nor have I seen the film (yet) ;), but in many (if not most/all) cases with Zimmer's music on CD he leaves out short bits and pieces of some cues (with the music still 'flow' like it was originally made like that), probably to make it a better listening experience (although in most cases I disagree), so if that was done for the CD of The Dark Knight, and CD1 of this new 2CD set is the same as the single disc one, it most likely will be missing some short moments in certain cues ... same thing with different cues being mixed/faded together (which I'm also are not a fan of) ... for me a good expanded/complete edition of a score should contain each cue separately (with clean start/end ... if you understand what I mean by that).

But as I mentioned, I haven't seen the film (yet), so maybe the music on the single disc release (and now CD1 of this new) are actually the complete cues as originally made... and that disc 2 contains complete cues, and not edited (shortened) in any way ... and hopefully also without and crappy dialogue !!

Maybe there will be a definitive tracklist, because the description write about a complete score release and the first disc contains "only" the mixed tracks from the previous released ost... For me is a complete score a chronological ordered 2-cd-set :)

There was a limited Collector's Edition release for Prince of Egypt which had a couple of never-before-released cues.

I'm fully aware of the "Selections From The Prince Of Egypt" CD, I have it (of course ;)) ... but I don't consider it an "expanded" release (even though it have 3 new/unreleased (great !) cues). Besides, this was actually never widely distributed (not sold in regular stores), but only (originally) available through Walmart ... but now it's not difficult to find, even for a descent prize...

I'm with you on that one, Kusi ;)

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-26 00:00:00
I don't think they'll release a 2cd set which has all the tracks in order, because I'm sure Warner has thousands of preproduced Dark Knight cds which must be sold, so this new set is a new opportunity to sell the rest.
