Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

Giacchino will win. "Married Life" is better than this whole score.

I hate to admit that I am only recently (being in the last two years) a fan of Hans Zimmer, but only because I didn't really learn to appreciate the music in films until then. Now, however, I love Hans Zimmer more than anything and his music brings me to heights in which I cannot even describe. This soundtrack is no acception...it is simply incredible. I love the new techniques he uses with not having necessarily the "big band" sound, like in the Pirates movies, but with single instrumentational sounds. It just blows me away. He is the definition of a musical genius.

Adrian,

Thanks for the reply. If that is the case, that is unfortunate because that means I'll probably never get a copy of the track. :-/ If anyone else has any thoughts on the issue, I'd love to hear them.

As for Dredger, I think he actually *is* French, and Sherlock knew that from the first word that Dredger speaks (English, but with a French accent) upon his arrival in the midget's house. The joke then, is that the 'muscle' of the bad guys is actually quite cultural and respectful of honor. I think this is the case given his look of respect when he sees that Sherlock can fight, as well as their continued banter in French. Plus, think about it - why would a London street level thug speak French if he was English? ;)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-28 00:00:00
@ Daniel
If I'm correct the dude is not French, he just happens to speak French... How would Sherlock even know he is French? I think that's joke! Or am I wrong?

As for the music... When I heard it, I assumed it was Hans... The score in the film is million times longer than on this CD, so the chance is big it's a Zimmer-piece that wasn't put on the disc.

the cd is fantastic

Daniel reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-27 00:00:00
I'm a bit confused, and would really appreciate any help anyone could give. In the movie, during the 1st fight scene with Dredger (the big Frenchman), an Irish-sounding piece of music plays. It has no lyrics, and is not credited separately in the credits at the end of the movie. Is this a piece that HZ wrote that he just didn't put on the soundtrack? I really enjoyed it, as short as it was, and if anyone recognized what it is I would really appreciate your help.

~Daniel~

Plz note: I'm *not* talking about Rocky Road to Dublin.

About Sherlock Holmes 5.1

File this one under "Why Even Bother?!" As per the instructions included in the CD;

Instructions For Downloading and Playing 5.1 Surround Files

1. Go to exclusive website using enhanced CD and click on button to download 5.1 Surround Sound Files
2. Unzip the file "SherlockSurround.zip"
3. Import WAV files and burn audio CD using any burning software (iTunes, Nero, Toast, etc.)
4. Play disc in any home theater system that supports 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic ll audio

Don't waste your time. The actual CD sounds virtually indistinguishable from the "PLll surround encoded" burned disc. Both played via HDMI (PCM stream) to receiver with PLll decoding. Comparing the wav file images from both enhanced CD and dowloaded files (via Wavasaur) reveal no difference - they are both stereo 16/44 files. The music itself while I'm sure complimentary to the viewing of the film, does not really stand up well on its own (IMO).

If you want to enjoy multichannel download files you are much better off buying the grammy nominated David Huber's "Colab" disc from CD Baby (there is also a DTS CD available). The 5.1 MP3 files are actually multichannel and decode VERY discretely.

You would think that with the resources available to Warner Bros and multi Acadamy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer, they could come up with something more sophisticated than this fairy dust - especially when compared to the efforts of someone like Mr. Huber who is self released and has what appears to be very limited resources.

Totally understand you there, Matthew. Sometimes there'll be a lot of music in an actual movie that isn't in the released soundtrack, which is also the case with all three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, sadly.

Mich reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-17 00:00:00
Was someone saying Hans Zimmer had something to do with the Avatar soundtrack? I thought James Horner composed that?
I can't see Mr. Zimmer doing a movie like Avatar. Dunno why, but it just doesn't seem his thing.

And Matthew, I'm not sure what sound exactly you're referring to, but I can tell you different instruments make all kinds of weird sounds when played different ways, so there's really no unique sound that "belongs" to any one movie. More specifically, every composer has unique styles and quirky techniques, so maybe you're hearing some similarities between the two tracks, which is completely possible.
