Theres quite a bit of good unreleased stuff from this score. Stuff like the cue that plays during Alita's first game of motorball with the other kids, the bar fight music, the unused string rendition of Alita's theme and the end titles arrangement of Motorball/Swan Song.Does anyone have the "Motorball" cue from end credits? It sounds like the beginning of the "Motorball" track but it's different than on the OST. It plays directly after the Swan Song track...<br><br>Why is it left off the CD?Huh... Do people at RCP ask H-Z.com to use the official, less accurate credits in some cases? I seem to recall some credit fiasco on POTC4.So what happened to the credits here? It used to be a mixture of solo Atli cues with Atli/Dave Fleming, and now all three guys are credited for every track even though Tillman is only listed as a musician? Is this like with Armageddon, where the "official" credits aren't as accurate as the older ones were? :pMost of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)
Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Thanks MIKE, Any ideas of how can I Google it?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>
I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?
These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.Does anyone know where you can get a digital version of the Japanese versions 2 bonus tracks?

Hello!
usually when i listen soundtrack,I have some associations with composers, and I can spot the auther. But this time I was surprised when I got to know, that it was Hanz Zimmer. really!
Pirats of Carribean Sea and Dark Knight was alike!
this sound is GREAT!!
also I heard some notes of our russian Sherlock Holmes soundtrack ..so it was a beautiful combination of music and picture!!Thank You!!!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-10 00:00:00
Those two are indeed very impressive, but im not a fan of tracks longer than 7 minutes :P So Psychological Recovery isn't a track for me... hehe
But Hans Zimmer did indeed again make an impressive score, via very ''original'' ways :P
I haven't got the chance to listen tot he bonus track just yet, but I'll hear it soon!

Hans indeed deserves an oscar for this... And as for Avatar, it was good... but a bit ''standard.''
Sherlock is far from standard, perhaps the oscar committee will see that... But Hans said he doesn't want any oscars anymore, so most likely he won't get one hehe

Track 3 is a very strange track... totally strange, thats why I liked it :-) I asked myself the same question ''what is he doing? but i like it :P''

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-10 00:00:00
Yes right...Adrian you are right about everything...
Two question: why Hans has say that he doesn't want an Oscar? And where did you read this?
Then: do you know what do they mean with "Music Produced by Hans Zimer & Lorne Balfe"? I understnad that Hans is the composer, but...who are the producers? What do they do? I don't understnad this...Could someone help me please?

Great soundtrack! I love track 11 Psychological Recovery,Lots going on,I think I can hear some uilleann pipes about 4 min in? Fantastic!

Enrico:
1. Yes he did, I read it on imdb somewhere. It was because of all the problems he had with the Dark Knight nomination/disqualification for ''too many composers.'' He was tired of all the interviews, stress and stuff around it. So he said enough is enough. If I remember correct,

2. Well, I'm not sure what a producer does, but I think: the composer composes a song and has a global idea how the music must be played and put together. But the producer makes layers, all music has several layers, like one for drums, one for guitar, one for violin, one for cello etc. And I think the producer makes decisions about those layers, where they are, and how much instruments (layers) are used, how loud they must sound.
But I'm not sure to be honest, I only know for sure that the producer is an essential part of the team.

So, Lorne Balfe has been very very important in this soundtrack! I didn't know this...It's strange that they have written it on the principal cover!!! :D I thought that he needs to sponsor Lorne...

However, Hans is right, we are boring with these bad news about Remote Control team...Oscar should see what they nominated, every year I see very few good music in Oscar nominations...bad thing... :(

hey guys! Who made that weird sound? Zimmer or Jablonsky? You know what I'm talking about. yust listen Discombobulate then The Shard. this sound belongs to Trans 2. for me...

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-09 00:00:00
Well Adrian...my favorite track is the long suite of 18 minutes: "Psychological Recovery...6 Months" and then, the last: "Catatonic"!

I think that is the best...is fantatic because we can hear every single theme from Sherlock Holmes and is that where we can hear every soloist at their top!!! Hans Zimmer with synth (expecially in the end), Diego Stocco & Co.

Fantastic track, but honestly I love all this CD...is fantastic, Zimmer has changed his style here...I think that sometimes he seems more "cinematic" with suspended sound...FANTASTIC AMAZING!!!

The 3° track is fantastic too, even if the first time I heard it I said: "what has done hans now?!!!" But I loved step by step...The last track (the bonus track) is fantastic too...

I want to say this: this year the Oscar will go to Avatar, that is a fantastic score, but HONESTLY Hans Zimmer merits it...Sherlock Holmes has different themes and never get boring...This is one of the best CD of Hans Zimmer!!! Go on...

What do you think about these words Adrian?

No.. I haven't just yet... The previews were quite... ''special'' so I waited and let it sink for a while hehe..
But I think I'll be buying it soon... I particularity like the 3rd track, especially when the beat comes... what do you think about that track ? And which is your favorite track ?

Really brilliant movie and soundtrack. Robert Downey Jr. is a great Holmes and Jude Law is a great Watson. Hans zimmer really outdid himself this time.

Wow - what a FANTASTIC soundtrack!
I just so happen to be listening to it now, as I type the comment.
Hans Zimmer never fails to disappoint - and this soundtrack proves that once again.
By far my musical hero.

PS: Adrian, a question: the image that can be seen up (of the CD) is a kind of special edition?

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-07 00:00:00
However on my CD I just see the sybol of SONY, and nothing else about the production.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-07 00:00:00
@ Enrico

Nice link about the musicians... and the destruction of a piano :P

I don't know if the upper picture is a special edition... Regarding the size of the of the left side (where you can see the logo), I think its for the normal edition, only with a cardboard cover over the plastic one.

But it could also be the special edition, and be a complete cardboard cover.

We just have to wait one more week :-) How did you get the CD already by the way? The 12th January isn't until next week!
