Hybrid, what did Danny think of what Hans was doing? Since he tries to claim that no Batman composer after him wrote a "theme"...Okay, so I'm not a fan of Balfe's; I think it's objectively the case that much of his music is very, very similar to work he's already done (seriously, how many times has he made obviously variations of Journey to the Line / Time?). However, his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO, not sure how one could expect more than that. Ironclad is actually a good example of thisActually Hybrid my comment is based on their separate  interviews years apart. Zimmer's arguably dismissive comment years ago and Elfman's arguably stern remark about his theme being the only Batman theme, of recent note. <br><br>If they are both good friends who go to each other's barbecues on Sundays and drink beer together, more power to them. If they have a stellar working relationship, well, I obviously am not privy to that, but good on them. However based on what I've heard my impressions don't lean towards the latter.<br><br>If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. <br>  <br><br><br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.
Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?
Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.
here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.<br>2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds<br>3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.<br>4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.<br><br>How did Hans fail here?<br><br>1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.<br><br>2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.<br><br>3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works<br><br>4.

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.

Well, as it is an unreleased version... there's no plan to release it...

JMG reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-27 00:00:00
So, when is this edition being released?

Bloo' reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-25 00:00:00
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 ;)
and i assume, it's powerful ;)

so.... why does it say "The Haunting Complete Records" on the top??

perhraps because before someone get that (and us all) , armageddon will come or I will have a gray beard , so this complete is just a shadow , a ghost of promise which eventually will never comes:)

Why not ? it's just correponded to my sentiment in that moment. Dark' seems to have a good answer, maybe he's not with me, but anyway, why i cound't ?
But i don't why i answer to an anonymous person... that's haunting!!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-23 00:00:00
@ 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.
