Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.The Thin Red Line >> The New World....Good for you?I don't like Hans Zimmer, James Horner is my favorite.Uhh, I don't electronic music ain't gonna work on Alita Battle Angel.
Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing ó but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>
Oh wow! Thatís all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Canít insult me! I am genuinely curious. Whatís this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.
he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?

Does it contain the "Superman" cue?

This is not complete. A couple of cues are missing. Also CD 1, Track 1 is in mono for some reason!

What the hell is up with this cover? "The HAUNTING Complete Recordings", "powerful music by John Powell"

GRRR reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-18 00:00:00
it's because the "thing" that leaked is still incomplete and is missing some great material

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-18 00:00:00
Meh, I've been trying to get this for months, and now it's finally leaked there is hardly any decent music that wasn't on the official release.

David reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-13 00:00:00
The alternative versions of Death And Transfiguration are amazing. Too bad still there's some great musi which didn't make it to the expanded score, like the Superman-esque ostinato in the bank robbery scene.

There is always a lot of ways to make a cover.. as a film, as a text.. change the director, the art designer, and this will be really different; it's a point of view. The essentials is to be in peace with ourselves ;).
But, generally, i prefer to make a cover for a movie, a music, an actor(actress) i like.. after that, the music take a better dimension. So i make few covers, but not really do again "official" covers. Not my job, no time to loose too, it's the music i listen, not the design lol. It's a choice too, because, as you said, some officials are "awful".
I can't add "futurist" fonts in the style of "Hancock", i don't want lol. Maybe cause i like the contrast, even myself ;).

Have a good day(night?)!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-24 00:00:00
Well, it seems that you make the covers for your own use too, then you must make covers where you are completely happy about yourself! Because when you listen to a CD and then you have to think ''this cover sucks'' then the cd sounds less cool, at least that is what happens to me!

I could've guessed that you didn't know Oorlogswinter, Dutch films never go far over the border.
So it's no German title, hehe. German is a bit different, the title would be Kriegwinter then.
But it was meant a bit describing how err... stupid it is :P
Well, I misexplained it actually, I would be happy when the other fonts are in the style of Hancock-font, a futuristic one :P

Let's ask Hybrid to upload your final cover, I'm real curious how your re-making worked out!
And no problem, I'm always curious what the choices are from other cover designers!

Bloo' reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-24 00:00:00
Thanks a lot for your answer! I will try to explain my choices (try because my english.. well ;)).
My covers were serious in a first time (it's powerful, for me) and funny in a second time. Sure, i don't put that (Haunting, powerful..) if the covers did for a commercial rush ;). As this Oorlogswinter. A cover i never saw until then (and i can't read german too lol). So no influence. Anyway, the purpose wasn't to be revolutionary ;)

For "the haunting complete recording", there is a little mistake, "Recordings" need to be in the same way as the others words like "complete". I made another cover, but Hybrid didn't change the first one ;).
For the rest, "powerful music by john powell", i changed too (just a little), but not really as you could hope ;).
For "Hancock", i put the official font, title. So no change from me. Not my fonts. I like it like that. I changed only shadow, etc.. and for finish, i prefer that cover to all the others i saw, but it's personal, you know ;).

You're right, it's good to see/make a simple clean cover, but it's my major problem, i can't do that most of the time. I need to grind up all the stuff in my head lol. It's often confused but i treat myself lol.

To finish, thanks again for your time ;).

Yeah, I didn't wanna be the first to say...but I guess I'll follow up on the last post. The front cover really sucks! This is not "The Haunting Complete Recordings!" It wasn't even composed by the same guy, lol! I don't know how this'll be though...the original release was plenty for me. Prolly still check it out.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
The front cover maker doesn't know anything about fonts too!
And about the haunting-thing, like the Dutch did the same for the score of Oorlogswinter ''door de wereldberoemde componist Pino Donaggio'', ''by the world famous composer Pino Donaggio.''
That's for losers :P

I'm not fighting at all lol. I'm just want to know, that's interesting to progress if i'm wrong ;)

But i don't why i answer to an anonymous person... that's haunting!!

@ Bloo'

Well, I didn't know the cover was meant ironic, I thought it was a serious one.
If the cover was serious, your read what I said about Oorlogswinter... this is something like that with that powerful etc :P since the music of that ilm sucked, I don't take those things on a cover serious anymore.

About your fonts, you use italic and normal font and (small) capitals in a strange way. There should be some system.
Also, Hancock is in a futuristic font, I don't find a serif font fitting. I would go for a sans serif font or a futuristic font. And I would use all italic, or none italic or music by italic and john powell normal.
I like a simple clean cover. And I dont like the photo either... I would go for something more subtle.
You used a very good photo for Children of Glory btw. But this is my opinion, nothing personal.
Oh, I make covers myself too, simple ones, but I'm not unexperienced, so you're not getting an opinion from someone who never made a cover ;-)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
Oh, I forgot! I am quite picky when it comes to covers. I re-made one for Pearl Harbor because I hated the photographs. Same for King Arthur... So I don't like some professional either.
