Several clips of the film are on YT. With some music. Sounds like 90's score from HZ. Too bad the directing seems to come from an age movies didn't exist...No. It’s a boys choir. S&K bros is a girl’s choirSeems like Scala & Kolacny Brothers.In what way is it "obvious", exactly, that Djawadi had more influence on that Training cue than Zimmer? It's basically just a statement of Zimmer's theme, and doesn't really sound notably "Djawadi-esque" to me in any way.Thanks for the credits update
A bit of who did what...Lorne also confirmed that he took charge of Mr.Charles, and without saying that Lorne was on the good side of Score in general, so his influence was substantially high.Hybrid confirmed that training is composed by Ramin and Hans and it is obvious that Ramin's influence is superior to that of Hans.are we expecting the score for dark phoenix to be released in a week or so, if the movie itself drops early june?Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.
I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is BalfeI hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few<br>Batman Begins-The Training<br>TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending<br>Inception - Time, Mr.Charles, <br>TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan<br>Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain<br>Dunkirk - well the entire movieJustin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.
Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 thingsSure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.

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.
