(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>You fools, the tracklist was but a scam. The tracks simply wanted to EAT you.
Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.<br><br>I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.<br><br>I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.Not to disagree for its own sake, but I think Powell has been up there with the greatest film composers since the first HTTYD score. I just wish he'd take on more projects.Yeah, Jesus. This is a prime example of why I'm tempted to think John Powell is more talented than even Williams (yes, I went there).There's so, so many great themes in the HTTYD scores. And he almost never lets a moment go by where he isn't stating or restating or developing one or more of them (although honestly that's true of a ton of Powell's scores and not an exclusive feature of HTTYD). You can never get bored listening to these, there's always something interesting around the next corner.I got confirmation HGW only wrote Haitian House Shootout (with the help of Mel Wesson). The same ideas were edited into the shorter cue Zoepound, so I'd say you can add this one to his credits.<br><br>Credits on IMDB mentions Paul Linford on the Main Titles.<br><br>Trevor Morris helped Jablonsky on the Ferrari Causeway Chase.<br>Jablonsky worked, for sure, on the Hallway and Helicopter Inserts.<br><br>100% sure Rabin worked on Tapia, Tapia Pissed Off, The Stuff, Wiretap Results, Ocean, Dead Bodies #2, Heart to Heart, Breaking Into Mortuary, Syd's Cover Is Blown, Tapia Has Syd (without Inserts), Prep for Tapia Sneak, Cuba Chase, Guantanamo (those tracks are on the Rabin only-bootleg).
Hoping for the Rocketman score to get a release. Loved the score in the movie. Any updates on this ?Additionally, for anyone interested, I've managed to come up with a final list of themes from the series that I believe to be mostly accurate.<br><br>HTTYD 1: Hiccup & Toothless, The Friendship ostinato, Viking Theme, Viking "B" Theme, Dragons, Berk, The Dragon Tamer (Hiccup's unique qualities), Vikings & Dragons, Astrid<br><br>HTTYD 2: Loss, Exploration/Hiccup's Maturance, Drago, Hiccup & Valka, The Alpha, Stoick & Valka, The Chief<br><br>HTTYD 3: The Furies ostinato, Love, The Dragon Liberators, Moving On, The Hidden World, Toothless & The Light Fury, Grimmel, Dragon Trappers<br><br>A list more impressive than Star Wars, and with almost every new theme returning for the next film, while keeping most of the base themes. A masterful achievement by John Powell and his crew, as others have said!Just finished watching the movie, and while it's not much more than fine, it's sure as hell better than every other Star Wars movie that's come out since The Force Awakens (minus the ugly fucking visuals). <br><br>However the score is absolutely amazing. Powell's adaptation and development of the new Han Solo theme from Williams is flawless, the callbacks to other themes from the series are mostly appropriate (and good on him for not using the Force theme once!) and Powell's original material is fresh and exciting in a way that even Williams himself hasn't been able to pull off with the new films. <br><br>Powell might very well be up there with the greatest film composers if he continues to produce work like this from now on (which from HTTYD 3 seems very possible!)Some of the synth work throughout is definitely like Spirit. The first couple minutes of Coda are one example.It's only suggestions based on about few dozen listened scores of those composers.<br>By the way known that HGW was part of it.

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?

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. ;)

> 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

@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.
