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...

Unique and extraordinary score, unlike anything we've heard from Zimmer thus far, a weird lilting goulash of nickelodeon and danse macabre, with a playfully polyethnic bazaar quality evocative of Prokofiev, Saint-Saëns, and Bela Fleck. I'll be buying this one.

Hi , does anyone knows if the song that appears on both trailers is in the soundtrack???

No, it's not. The song is "Unstoppable" by E.S. Posthumus.

The bonus track sounds like a slower tempo version of the first strike (of course different arrangement)...

Has anyone heard the bonus track? ?I'd love to get hold 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 !

Amazing soundtrack! nice gypsy sound. anybody think they're gonna release the sheet music?

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. ;)
