The synth man creating a mostly synthesizer score? what a shock...because that's what Hans doesMain theme is on Youtube. I quite like it. I prefer Hans doing themes like this rather than the stuff he is doing with FIFA.I'm surprised no one is talking about this one, its one of Rupert's best scores imo.Lately I have been listening to the album carefully, and the truth is that I did not quite understand why Hans did not just use a big orchestra instead of the synthesizer.
It would have really been interesting to see Ritcher scoring a chase on the photo, although without a doubt his work would not have been anything generic.Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)
I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cuesArtemisia Suite = History of Artemisia <br>Greek Action Suite = Marathon <br>Xerxes Rebirth Suite = From Man to God King<br>Greek Sacrifice Suite = ???<br>Artemisia’s Childhood Suite = Artemisia’s Childhood<br>Greek Attack Suite = Greeks on Attack<br>Queen Gorgo Suite = Queen Gorgo<br>Xerxes Thoughts Suite = Xerxes Thoughts<br>Greek History Suite = History of the Greeks<br>Greek Victory Suite = Greeks Are Winning<br><br>Hope this helps! :-)Hybrid can you tell us what album cues are the suites ?!well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be released
Cool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...Hey hybrid soldier! You mentioned on the ghost in the shell page about white fang so I came here! Can you give us a list of the cues as they appear in the film please? The Basil Poledouris cues and the Hans Zimmer cues pleaseI imagined it ... hopefully this time Max Ritcher does not give him a lollipop and refuses to launch his musicYes Unbreakable.
<br>
<br>Exactly like White Fang. Have Poledouris write a score, then HZ do another, then pick what you want from both.
<br>
<br>Ghost In The Shell was kinda different...

Awesome Score. A bit more generic than the first but still a great piece of work, especially because it complements the first one. After just 1 listen a main theme comes forth, appearing every now and then throughout the score.
"Prime" wich is the "Autobots" of this score, in theme and in sound. "Autobots" itself returns in 2 instances, at the end of "Forest Battle" in a more gritty and fast version, and, as in the previous score, as the 2nd half of "I Rise, You Fall" in an almost exact duplicate of "No Sacrifice, No Victory". I say almost because, although it mimics that score 1 track, it sound deeper and more majestic (if that is possible). And the final piece "Matrix of Leadership" is a delicious (though short) take on "Arrival to Earth".
I do hope that more themes from the previous score seep into the new movie, but in this score that is it, the rest is totally new. As i say said, a true compliment to the 1st score, building on its sound and feel.
For now, the only defect i find in this score is the one many have mentioned, it is too short. After these 43 minutes go by, you're left wanting more.
Only truly good scores make you feel that.
I once again tip my hat to Mr. Jablonsky. Now, let the 24th come to see what spectacular visuals illustrate this exquisite score.

And before I get attacked, I can completely understand other people liking it. Its edgy, fast, dark... just not what I wanted from this score. And maybe it is what other people wanted.

Deakins reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
After a complete listen of the score. I'm a little bit disappointed.
Some tracks like "Prime", "Infinite White" or "Matrix of Leadership" are very angelous but others parts of the score aren't very original..
"The Fallen", "Fallen's Arrival" and " Einstein's Wrong"especially show the trend of an unpersonnal music without real emotion..(even 'Decepticons' theme from the first one was better!)
The reprise of the old 'Autobots' and 'Optimus' themes are really cool in 'Forest Battle', 'I Claim Your Sun' but totally obsolete in 'I Rise, You Fall" (same as 'No Sacrifice, No Victory' on the 52-tracks bootleg)..
The collaboration with Linkin Park is average but finally, upper than others electronic parts of the score..

I'm sure that the entire score is highly better in his context but I think if the cd reflects the quality of the score in his globality, it will be sad for 'Jablonsky' fans like me..

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I'm with Deakins, however, I liked most tracks, but the score is too short. Anyone smelling a new petition coming up ?:P But I do not think it's any use...

Badguy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
That's True!!! hahahaha, this guy is right!! First Born Theme is 160 BMP variation... obviously, mixed with THE PEACEMAKER sound!

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
yeah guys you should listen to zimmer "first born" cue ( in the world of BBC theme , 1989, scroll down in disco section and you'll find the CD )

It sounds very close to angels and demon 160 bpm ! Funny

Badguy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
Another analyze... the track FOREST BATTLE is a variation of Soccent Attack, and we can hear the Optimus Prime theme of the first movie... about the choirs... it sounds like A&D... anyways, I think the TRANSFORMERS 2 soundtrack is very short, we want the complete score, nooooooow!!! hahaha

Badguy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
Well, to me, I liked "Infinite White", remember me the sound of KING ARTHUR, who is the female solo voice? I love her!!! (^^,)

Leonor reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
@ Badguy

Yah... it really sounds like A&D... Now that I've heard it (in here - btw), it has everything to do with Hans! Well, he worked in this ost, so I truly believe it has his hand!
The same choirs style... with the melody being the main part of it... so Hans Zimmer!

I would like to listen "Nest" based on the song by LP...

For what I've heard, it really sounds a little bit more darker than the 1st one... more choirs! But I liked it... can't wait to have it!

Antas, Webmaster reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I prefer the first one I think but this one seems to be different -- darker indeed. Some tracks are very good imho and I am impatient to see how this score fits with the movie.

I agree with Ele, some tracks from T1 like Allspark theme are definitely missing but wait and see the movie with the complete soundtrack...

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
Dark or not, i'd like to hear T1 style. I miss Allspark theme, and some good action-score cues (soccent attack was one of them for example)

not yet ? ;-)

it's just different, more dark but very good ^_^

(pleaaaaaasee i want a complete or expanded score)

@Chris :
Totally agree with you, I waited more variations and new arrangements of the old theme.. like everybody like you said.

Antas, Webmaster reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00

Hey, Antas..
So, what do you think about this score?

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
The "Arrival To Earth" theme is present near the end of the track "Matrix Of Leadership".

Deakins reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
Yes but it's not the best motif of 'Arrival to Earth'. :-)
However, it's a good arrangement.

Badguy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
Einstein's Wrong sounds like Angels & Demonds... Zimmer's Hand??

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I heard to the score about 10 times by now, and i am very disappointed. "New" Prime theme is just mixed Optimus and Autobots theme from first part. Pretty weak action score, weak new themes. Too much electric guitar. Especially in The Shard. Hello, this is filmscore, not a rock/metal/whatever.
Srsly, big disappointment. I hope there will be complete score which will contain moar epic music.

@down Yeah, it sounds exacly as 160/Fire from A&D. Especially when female choir turns up.

waitin' for the complete score ^_^

What I've heard so far is very, very satisfying. I am now confortable with the way they are going with the music. I was worried that there might be too much Lincoln Park music but from what I've heard, Steve is still the man.

And as for the length, I am a little sad but hopefully there is more in the film because I cannot see how 43 minutes can score such a long and expensive film. Unless they do a lot of rehashing from the first one.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
About the fees, I don't know what it costs, I didn't ask, but it's probably quite important... ;)

And about that US rule, it's not the case in other countries... That's why we get longer release for "foreign score"... For instance King Arthur, which is quite a long CD release for a Bruckheimer/Disney production, but the film & score were done in the UK...

I'm not sure but I think it's the same for The Da Vinci Code which got a 70 min release, or German productions like Der Kleine Eisbär 2 or Lauras Stern... :)

But every country has its owns rules, for examples in the UK there's a tax for non Brittish writers ! That's why Nick Glennie-Smith & Rupert Gregson-Williams got an official additional music credit, and American people Steve Jablonsky, Trevor Morris, Jim Dooley & Blake Neely didn't get the official writing credit... :)


Weird weird music world !!!! :S

To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed so far.

I'm hearing very little fresh, creative thematic material--which I'm hoping is due to the choice of clips and possibly material present on the disc. In the first film, the Autobot theme in the opening grabbed my ears IMMEDIATELY. But so far, I'm not hearing anything like that.

The other thing is that, again the first one, Steve used different instruments to convey different themes: Autobots and humans-horns; Allspark-cello; Decepticons-electronics. All I've heard from the new one so far are some standard orchestrations and a bunch of techno noise.

I hope the Score is really cool because the lenght of the score is not - okey. 43:56 for a Big Budget Movie is a badley joke!
I hope the Score is the Best from 2009!

Infinite White and I Rise, You Fall, look like Gladiator OST. I wish that someone bring something new. Something revolutionary.

i dont know who said the transformers track over at the Jablonsky site was a track from a video game, but Im here to tell you...

That track is better quality than the video game synths he uses for economic purpose, and for another, it's the chord progression of Bumblebee/Allspark without the layers.

Dead on balls accurate, and if Jablonsky used it in that video game score, then he clearly shamelessly stole from the Transformers well...

I really hope there will be a complete score, like the first one.
