About his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?
He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for meAw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.
Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronics
So I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter eggI haven't seen the movie yet but I like the score more with each listen. Not a classic Zimmer by any means but still an enjoyable listen at its short running time. Looking forward to the movie as well.This is me or Henry Jackman removed the electronics this year it could be affect to the predator score because I was thinking about the predator score affect him to remove electronics and turned serious & dramatic. That's weird when Henry Jackman used a lot electronics & fun since 2009 to 2017 with his scores.

The track in the credits with the heavy drums and guitars is by A Perfect Circle - "Count Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm of the War Drums"

Harry Gregson-Williams' scores never cease to amaze me :)

I'm liking this one too. Not too good but the electronics and synths develop a nice, suspenseful atmosphere which I think is suitable for the movie.

AWESOME SCORE!!! I absolutely love this music; Good job Mr. Gregson-Williams...you never disappoint!

The score reminds me too much to Men on Fire and Deju Vu... nothing new and just a temp score... :(

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-13 00:00:00
That is simply because the studio licenses source pieces into the movie... at a price.
If they then want to use that same licensed piece on a soundtrack
thats gonna cost the studio even more money & that's why you don't usually get these pieces on soundtracks.... unless the deal done includes a soundtrack release too.

Just saw Pelham 123...nice score but I was blown away by the end creds music....percussion and super guitar track....is it Peter Destefano??? I see he has creds listed fr Pelham 123 on his MySpace page. I want to hear this track again....how can I find it and how do I get it?
If record producers would actually reproduce and market what songs we hear in the movie, the record buying public would be much happier. I cannot tell you the number of soundtracks I have purchased and the songs are NOT the ones in the movie. RIP OFF!

Man I hope this better than the Wolverine score. Seeing how this is a semi techno-thriller. I hope Harry goes back to the awesomeness of Enemy of The State and Spy Game.

Now up on I-Tunes UK, so there is a digital release too.

They don't sell well because they don't market them well. The only way we can find out about scores is through forums like this...that not many people know about. Half the time stores don't even carry them until well after their official release date. Perhaps if studios paid to have them advertised in sale adds they might do better. There are plenty of people out there who want these scores, they just need to make it easier for us to find them!!!!

I have a pressed CD of the Spirit... It's a Silva Screen pressing, it was even in Dutch stores for a very low price...

How did you obtain it??? Is there a way we can order it here in the states??? Thanks!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-07 00:00:00
Adriaan is right...


Amazon first sold The Spirit as CD-R, before Silva Screen released a proper pressed CD... :)
