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...

Did you know that the first track of Frozen/Nixon was based off Team Fortress 2's Right Behind You? I think you should hear it.

How does the For Your Consideration CD compare to the OST? Also is there a correct film order to sequence the CDs?

Jasper reply Replies: 4 || 2012-08-07 17:29:40
This probably is one of the most underrated Zimmer scores he ever did.

MGDrone2012-08-07 22:54:44
I agree, it's one of my favorites. First Ideas is a spectacular piece, and it's a very well-rounded score overall.

Jasper2012-08-08 20:52:07
Agreed. I really hope Zimmer will do some of these smaller, more dialogue based movies.

Mr. Charles2012-08-09 02:14:06
The FYC is pretty nice, although it's only 8 tracks

MGDrone2012-08-09 04:34:32
@Jasper: I hope so as well, they bring out the best in Zimmer. He's doing Ron Howard's next film (according to IMDB), so I hope it'll be something on the same level as this.

@Mr. Charles: Does it contain anything that's not on the album? I've heard of it, but have never been able to find it.

Brilliant Work!!
...and a really curious movie, :__:
I love all the score, but my favourite track is STATUS. Sooo suggestive and beautiful.

I've seen the film since then, and no, it's not on OST, it's some sort of 70s TV typical TV music show, not linked with the score...

We can call it source music... ;)

So anyone who has seen the film, is the David Frost TV show opening that Hybrid mentioned on the OST?

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-03-29 00:00:00
@ Hybrid,

What a shame you haven't seen the film! It's very tense (like the score), but in reality, nothing really threatening is hapening... Very good work by Ron Howard!! Wish he did the same on A&D...

According to the ASCAP website, tracks 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 13 were co-written by Lorne Balfe.

I'm not sure exactly how much music Atli ÷rvarsson contributed.

Atli wrote only one cue, the David Frost TV show opening... As I don't know the film, I can't say what it is... ;)

Mh...I've heard this CD, I've a lots of Hans Zimmer original CD but I think that this isn't really good...I love the major part of his composition but this isn't at his great level! Right?

Its actually a very nice score, and all using sampled instrument ( no real orchestra at all in that )

Many many thanks Mr Zimmer for creating this astonishing MUSIC!! : )

It is such a powerful, absorbing and very well orchestrated soundtrack!! Every single fan of Zimmerish music and of the Soundtracks genre MUST have this particular CD in their collection!!

I am really surprised that it has been written by some critics that this particular soundtrack lacks a lot of elements. As a matter of fact, one of itís drawbacks is the duration of the cd and the lack of wellĖdeveloped themes...
Well, obviously as fans of the Zimmer music we shouldnít take seriously every observation made by irrelevant sources..

As for the part of being similar to other soundtracks such as The Bourne Identity, thatís not entirely true.. Yes, there are parts, a lot of moments actually that could easily be identified with the KIND of music that Remote Control musicians produce (including HZ and all the other composers)..

Unfortunately I havenít seen the movie already, (since it hasnít been released to our country), but I imagine that it will be a perfect match and it will fit the picture as lovely as it fits to your ears..

Like always, The Zimmer Music surpasses itself and reaches levels of sheer perfection!!!...
