Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?

Just downloaded the soundtrack. Definitely a step away from Zimmer's previous work, which is good--it allows him to display a wider range of his talents. A fun and inventive score which fits a fun film. Bravo, Hans!

BTW, does anyone besides me listen to the opening of "Marital Sabotage" and think of a steam train?

The best Sherlock Holms movie for me is Rusian version . And great music score which fits personality .

Hmm I would say MW2 is a better score as it has a theme which is similar to my hears when I hear it but as others said its a new score which shows zimmer is capable of writing different scores for very different movies .

About the comparison Brad made between James Horner and Hans , James is the next best composer after hans and the main reason is that usually in every movie his score seems the same with few alterations though I respect him alot !

I didnt like holmes score that much , just waiting for future hans works ... they would be olala !

It is supposed to be Victorian London,which Guy Richie has managed very well,and the music is too virtuoso which is only saved by the Dubliners track,The Rocky Road To Dublin.

I thought it was edgy, creative, a bit gypsy, and definately a twang of dear old jack. But, with a twist. Sherlock Holmes might even be kookier than the captain himself, however some slight differences. Holmes has a newer faster pace going for it, mainly because of the fast pace the movie goes in but also it is more in your face than POTC. In POTC there is a lot more lilting in the music, soft, quiet to soft again. Waves, ocean, that sort of thing. Where as Holmes in a more running catch me if you can feel to it. I highly recomend it and i cant wait until it comes out. well done again Mr. Zimmer.

@Brad:
Don't worry, it's your right to prefer MW2 ! I only wanted to say that Sherlock isn't necessarily less good because it sounds different. ;) Indeed, Sherlock's theme reminds me of Sparrow's too... in a way, even if I'm sure it fits the character in the film, it worries me about how he is portrayed by Guy Ritchie. When I see the trailers, I don't recognize characters from the books at all. Therefore I'm not that interested in the movie, even if, then again, Zimmer surely did a great job of creating music that fits Ritchie's approach (which is what he's asked to do). I guess I will appreciate this score without the images, Sherlock Holmes being only a name on it, because, well, the movie seems too much different from what I like in the books. Anyway, now I wan't to listen to MW2 to make my opinion, too bad there's no official release (CD or download)...

And yes, Horner is good but a bit bugging with his habit of self-quoting... for example, his Avatar is cool, but it's only a "best of" his previous scores.

@Adrian I didn't say Tillman is better, I just said that I can't find Tina better than Tillman (no significant difference).

@Brad Well, i think that MW2>Sherlock as well. Sherlock is rather boring for me, and MW2 has some really cool cues (Green Flares, Same Shit - Different Day and so on). But still, I was expecting something more. Honestly, I think that HGW and Barton did better job on MW1 than Zimmer-team in MW2. MW1 is just more enjoyable.

Does epic mean better ? I haven't heard the music from Modern Warfare 2, I can't judge it, but more bombastic doesn't mean it has to be better than Sherlock. Sure epic is cool, but musically, it doesn't mean it's more daring or anything. On Holmes, I think Hans really did try to offer something new, experimenting new sounds and fresh ideas, as well as staying himself in the same time of course. And I think that's great, even if it isn't as easy-listening as epic might be. The Holmes score shouldn't be discarded just like that ! I admit I was "discombobulated" at first, but it deserves more than one listen to get to appreciate it. ;)

@Jaweco:
Whoa, whoa, whoa! I'm not discarding or trying to disrespect the score to Sherlock Holmes at all! I too think it's a great score, though not the easiest listen. I like the Zimmer tried something different, he stepped away from anything that sounded like The Dark Knight and even something that sounded similar to Pirates Of The Caribbean (though Sherlock's theme is similar to Jack's theme from Dead Man's Chest). It puts Zimmer on an even higher level than James Horner for instance whose scores sound exactly the same every single time. But for me I love true Zimmer scores, long, brooding strings movements and/or epic action music. And on Sherlock there's only two or three true Zimmer cues, the chief of which is Psychological Recovery...6 Months. Thats why I, for me, MW2 was a better listen. I enjoyed it more. But to each his own, thats just my humble opinion.

> In Sherlock Holmes soundtrack we can hear a kind of violin solos...was these made by Aleksey Igudesman?!

I'm sure the quirky "talking" violin solo on Track 3 and several other tracks is Aleksey's... it reminds me of his awesome rendition of Mozart's "Turkish Rondo" :D
