Guess a sessions leak of a score that was already 90 minutes long on the original album isn't worth getting super excited for...Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.
@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell......and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.
M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)
mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.

I just now heard this score and LOVE it! Very good! Reminds me of Pirates/King Arthur but still sounds original. What surprises me is that some people can't hear the difference between a real orchestra and a fake one. Since the Budapest Symphony played this score and you can easily tell it's live musicians! Orchestrated lushly by Bruce Fowler, engineered by Jeff Biggers, both first rate talent! But yes, there are synths in this score too. It's a sci-fi/fantasy movie about an alien monster, so it's not out of place. Tracks 1 and 3 were my favorites.

@Ele:

I never said that you said it was a bad score. I was talking about people like the guy who said that Zanelli was a bad composer and that the Outlander score was "disgusting." I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear at first.

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-07 00:00:00
@Miles I never said its bad & complete rubbish and so on. It's mediocre score, its rly badly orchestrated. Strings do not sound like strings, but like synth. Strings should have sound as strings. As so on so on etc.

Simply Amazing, Bravo Geoff :)

I don't see why some people are so displeased with this soundtrack; it's a perfectly serviceable and competently crafted action score that blends traditional with electronic, just like the movie itself. Zanelli definitely has talent, as his work on Into the West demonstrates.

BTW, Bobby Tahouri's score to Echelon Conspiracy has just been released on iTunes--might be worth a look.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-11-14 00:00:00
I haven't found any problems with the sound myself, but maybe that's just me...

disgusting....zanelli: change work...you are a bad composer..

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-11-14 00:00:00
Yes, its very meh. I'd give it 5, maybe 6. Listen to Into The West by Zanelli, its much much better. Into The West should got 8/10 here :(

Very nice, epic tracks, catchy main theme, but the sound sux. It's really bad orchestrated.

Hey people ! I'm in France, and unfortunately I can't find the CD of outlander anywhere :(
Can anybody help me and tell me where I can find it please?
I can't believe there's not the musik from the shield scene on the cd! It was probably my favorite among all the others...But I guess the others are not that bad either :)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-04 00:00:00
Well... for 27 euros id expect more :)

As long as the music is good, I don't really think it matters what the cover looks like. Hope to hear more from GZ in the future.

On a side note, do you think that the Delgo score will ever be released? If what I heard in the trailers is Zanelli's music, a CD would be pretty sweet!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-15 00:00:00
They also need to learn how to design a cover, the front cover is quite nice... but the rest is amateuristic photoshopping.. emphasizing amateuristic!! And poor selection of pictures... Luckely they didn't place a photo of the composer on the inlay like they did with Max Payne...
If this is what you get for a 1500 limited cd release...
Perhaps I'd even prefer the Varèse covers over this, at least they can select good pictures....!

This is a great score. Geoff did a superb job. It is a good mixture of his other scores, and yes there is a slight King Arthur feel throughout the score. I'm listening to it right now and the theme is well done. I really have no complaints about this score.

Aww, how disappointing. This time it's really nothing but noise. The only tracks that stand out are The Moorwen Genocide and Kainan Becomes King.
