I'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!
The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.
Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.
2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

@ Link

Listen to them all and then go to your temporary internet files folder and they're there in MP3.

Thank you very much for your explanation Hybrid Soldier!!!
I've a question: about the lenght, is this the same problem of A&D soundtrack?!!!
Thanks...

Link reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
Woah, in Amazon there's previews for all of them!! Wooo!!!
Too bad they aren't complete or in mp3.

@ anonymous

I'm sorry but that clip IS NOT "Bumblebee".
Have you heard the "Gears of War 2" Score?
If there is something it doesn't sound like is like a "video Game score". Jablonsky did quite a job on that. That clip at his site is, as another anonymous poster said, the track "Dom and Maria", track #40 in the unofficial release. No layer subtraction, no tempo modifications, its just it, the exact same clip is the "middle" section of that track.

It is indeed available on the Amazon.co.uk site in MP3 download.

not for france :|

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
as i said, the score is out there.

As a conscience thing, i will DL it 'cause i need my fix but i assure Mr. Jablonsky that i have bought the CD and HQ MP3 DL from iTunes. I'll only DL the "illegal" version because i really want to hear tis. And i hope you all BUY IT.

As for Amazon.UK and their "geographical limitations", i quote from the movie;
"Decepticons (Amazon.UK), suck my popsicle"- sticker on the back of the ice-cream truck/Mudflap+Skids

in the official score of Gears of War 2 the "Dom and Maria" track is #21 called "With Sympathy". It's been remixed for the CD and a choir voice added.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
about Gears of War 2 - I get what is being said but Ihave to disagree. MOst mainline composers who end up doing a video game score use less layering/orhcestra in their music which winds up making the score sound alot cheaper than say a movie score would be....Obviously because you're talking about a video game and nobody is going to toss in expensive orchestral work or put too much effort into it (especially when they have bigger projects to work on -ie Transformers). I didn't find Gears of War 2 to be anything huge...if anything it sounds very much like his DWAR music, which was very synthy at times - as if he used his cheaper equipment to score it. Composers seem to do this all the time (Harry Gregson Williams is one of them)

I could have worked but the damned AMAZON MP# DOWNLOADER aplication screws everything up.

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

Go to the site, type amazon.co.uk into the URL box on that site and it should let you browse the UK Amazon site as if you were in the UK.

In theory anyway... I dunno if it will let you buy, but worth a try.

@ OMG

how does that work?

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
Maybe a UK based proxy site would work, such as daveproxy.co.uk

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
This is another case where these companies just seem to want to lose money. Amazon.uk has it available in MP3 but because of those restrictions many of us can't buy it. I would have bought it as soon as i saw it but i can't. By tonight, i'm sure someone will have this uploaded on the web and i will get it. So, what is the logic when they complain about P2P sharing but don't allow us to BUY the actual product? Go figure...

I really want to thank Hybrid for what you wrote: your explanation is usefull and it makes us understand a lot about additional composers' listing.
Thanks again.

Argh, I meant 43 min, sorry... :P

Very interesting clips indeed. Too bad the album is a little short, but at least we're getting it on CD and not download-only! Can't wait!

John Steel reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-15 00:00:00
I'm a little bit disappointed too, but I expected a length shorter than most releases considering the economic crisis.
If you watch carefully, all major releases were this 'short'. Star Trek, Terminator, Wolverine, and now TF2.
I bet that GI Joe will be around 40-45 minutes as well.
Maybe the rights became more expensive.
But I agree with Demonstar, that it is much much better, than a poor digital download, or a 30 min score album.

John Steel reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-15 00:00:00
Oh, and the clips sound promising! :)

Lee reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-15 00:00:00
43 min?

Let's hope this will compensated by quality of the score.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-15 00:00:00
The score is just 53 minutes...

I'm really disappointed... :(



At least the clips sound GREAT ! :D

Hi folks,

visit Amazon.de for 3 excerpts of the new Transformers-Score. Search under "MP3-Downloads" and type "Transformers -Revenge of the Fallen Score". I found 3 cues and could listen to them about 20 secs long each. Not much, but okay. Soon it's Friday, anyway.

Enjoy!
Greetings!

Yes, that's true (it's the same motif) but i think 'Transformers 2' will be more powerful than what Jablonsky did with game music.
Moreover , Jablonsky benefits often of a good process in the mix of his cd's. So, quality will be at the meeting.

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-15 00:00:00
You are absolutely correct. But as i said it has a really Transformers feel to it. I really have to take a good listen to that soundtrack. Guess we'll have to wait till actual samples come out, though i'm sure Mr. Jablonsky made a good job.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-15 00:00:00
No, it isn't a 'Transformers 2' cue, this sample comes from the game 'Gears of Wars 2' and the track is named 'Dom and Maria'.
