Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?
me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.CD RELEASE?
Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.
There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-13 00:00:00
Yes, because is original, but I can't prove this...I like however, because the sound quality is high with Dolby Sorround 2.1 too!!! Bye!!!

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!

Apparently there are several presses made. So the H-Z.com info is not wrong. I presume New Line covers America and Sony world wide. But thats just what I think. Fact is, there are several versions :P
