Well, for starters, the HAN SOLO theme Williams wrote is kind of...well...meh....<br><br>And I can see where Powell had to incorporate the original Star Wars and some Empire themes....Asteroid Field being one of them.<br><br>I just kinda hoped Powell would adapt Asteroid Field into something more than whatever the hell butchery happened here....Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! When was there a flute in this score?? I just noticed there's a credit for a flute soloist, and I've listened to this score several times and never noticed a flute? Does anyone have any idea which track it might be?It's really sad how more than half of this score is just very messy bombastic sound rather than a more structured melodic/thematic approach, this coming from a hardcore Powell fan. The saddest thing is that this was THE film for him to score, full of action and chase sequences, which John has always excelled at. Here however, rather than his usual voice, it sounds as if he shies away from it and goes back to anything established by Williams every 30 seconds or so. Whenever it sounds like a cue is leading up to something interesting and exploring a new idea, it just shies away from it. This might have been on the directors/producer's side of things... or that's what I'm choosing to believe, at least. Don't get me wrong, every so often there are some sections that really do shine, this often being when Powell isn't just trying to sound Williamsy and/or referencing old SW material. Maybe I just need to give the album a few more listens. Usually happens whenever a new Powell soundtrack album is released. Not sure, though. Just by listening to Ferdinand a few times, for example, you could really feel and understand the story, its characters and their development, as their themes developed as well. This one is just a mess and feels... off.Such an inspiring track. Loved it when it was released and still love it.Only now just watched this show on Netflix and love balfes score . Canít believe this dark moody music is his !cant wait for Mission Impossible Fallout
It's a beautiful score. Already curious as to what he brings with The Meg@mrzimmerfan<br><br>Still have to disagree, I love the new ďPark ThemeĒ and the way it sort of takes over from the classic theme. Then you have the Indominus theme, Owenís theme, the villain theme, the family theme, the source music, etc.<br>Iíll take that any day over Lost World and JP3. Is it as good as the original score? Hell no, but not many scores are.<br><br>And I do see the similarities between the vulture theme and those other ones listed. Itís definitely not original, but it is effective.Really?, because sounds more like Beltrami than SilvestriVulture's theme is The Avengers theme but in lower tonesThis is just more of the "smooth talking, bad scoring" technique that Zimmer is very good at.
'Yeah, I definitely disagree. When I was watching Rogue One in theaters I kept getting taken out of the film because of the music, which isnít something that I normally pay attention to when I watch movies. '<br><br>The action music in that movie reinforces the tension and epicness of the movie (for example, The Master Switch gives gravitas to the scene and have a nice rendition for the theme of Chirrut's character)<br><br>'And I know it gets criticized a lot, but I honestly love Jurassic World. The flat recording sound aside, I think itís an intelligent score that does something new the franchise material while still paying tribute. Even Homecoming has grown on me, particularly Vultureís theme.'<br><br>Jurassic World, musically speaking, copies the tonal sound from the first Jurassic and dosen't give a memorable theme for the new park (the theme is more a other version from the Williams' theme), dosen't feel fresh to the franchise or inteligent, reverse, copies the tonal aspects from the original music from John Williams. Vulture's theme is a reshash from the Fantastic Four theme from Marco Beltrami and Philip Glassmpolonest123 Iím glad Iím not the only one who enjoys Jurassic World. It think it pays great tribute to John Williamsí groundbreaking work for the JP franchise, but it also had many exciting and creative motifs that made the score stand out in my mind.As for Pan, I initially wasnít impressed at all with the music. It took about a year for it to sink in and let me fall in love with the themes.@mrzimmerfan<br>Yeah, I definitely disagree. When I was watching Rogue One in theaters I kept getting taken out of the film because of the music, which isnít something that I normally pay attention to when I watch movies. <br><br>And I know it gets criticized a lot, but I honestly love Jurassic World. The flat recording sound aside, I think itís an intelligent score that does something new the franchise material while still paying tribute. Even Homecoming has grown on me, particularly Vultureís theme.@Ds: i'm not a big fan for Pan, i liked the score, but Powell have MUUUCH better action/fantasy scores.
"Pan" was also a replacement score, and look at the marvelous Powell score we got... However I don't know how long he had to score it. Certainly a bit more time than what Giacchino got for Rogue One.The action music is flat in Rogue One?, agree if the score isn't as good as Jupiter Ascending, for example, but the action music is BETTER than Spider-Man or Jurassic World.<br><br>IMHOAlso new Harry Gregson-Williams score out today! Breath.To be fair, Giacchino didnít have much time to work on Rogue One, which explains why certain portions (coughactionmusiccough) fell flat. Itís not a bad score at all, but yeah, John Powell is above and beyond a better composer. His recordings have life and energy, and while most of it still sounds like Powell, he is able to switch into Williams mode so easily.<br><br>In defense of Giacchino though, just go listen to Jupiter Ascending if you want a score on the same level as this. The action music is phenomenal, there are at least a dozen solid themes, and the recording doesnít seem as flat as some of his other scores.I think Powell found his niche with this score...<br>Because he's WAY better at apeing Williams than Giacchino could ever be, and with way more energy....<br><br>And here Giacchino prides his work on Williams from his origins in video game music... <br><br>This blows Giacchino out of the ocean and into the moon. This surprises me, as I expected Giacchino to have such  huge hard-on for Williams.

Is it me or "He's Killed The Dog Again" ends abruptly? "Marital Sabotage" which comes straight after this also sounds like these two tracks should cross-fade?

a cd to listen from the beginning to the end non stop ... probably the most creative music i have ever heard from Zimmer. Amazing !

That sample sounds much more original and complex than I had expected. And there is definitely a "The Third Man" meets "C'era una volta il west" thing going on :)

I hope it's a real 5.1 download unlike the last one, the Harry Potter one, which was a complete lie.

According to the official website of the film, those who buy ticket(s) for the film in advance will get a free exclusive track on iTunes, titled "Holmes (Hans 'n Guy Version)". By the looks of it, this is got to be a remixed thing, but maybe not.

Yes right...we are looking for this CD!!! I'd like to see it under my Christmas tree...but I must wait until 12 January...Uffa...
However: does anyone any news about the packadge of the CD?

Amazon mp3 has samples of all the tracks for anyone who cares to listen; pretty interesting overall, although I think "I Never Woke Up In Handcuffs Before" is a little heavy on the strings. The last two tracks are perhaps the closest to "vintage" Zimmer.

2 songs I'm the most interested is song 11 (an 18 minutes long action epic according to amazon) and the last track. Those tracks sound like a typical Zimmer action fest :)

Excuse me which Amazon has the tracks semplers?
And then: will the CD be released without a plastic cover?

nice tracklisting. can't wait for a first listen !!!

My name? Who wants to know? reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-10 00:00:00
sounds a bit like harry gregson williams in places (marital sabotage especially) in terms of rhythm. Other tracks sound very zimmerish. Ah, Putrefaction sounds beautiful even though it's very short. The theme sounds great in Panic. The last two tracks sound extremely epic!! Really can't wait for this release, it seems years since Angels and Demons!

A sample is right there : http://soundtrackfans.ning.com/video/video/show?id=2350108%3 AVideo%3A18039

A little Sparrow-ish, Hans brings back the harpsichord along with the accordion. Weird but fun ! It also reminds me a little of Morricone's "Marcia Degli Accattoni" from A Fistful of Dynamite (Giu la Testa) (we all know how much Hans loves his music ! ^^).

Incontention now has the whole track of "Discombobulate" posted up. It's a very catchy and quirky main theme, about as far from "Big Zimmer Action" as anything HZ has done this year. There'll probably be a liberal sprinkling of that in there, too, though. Now I'm even more excited to hear the whole thing!
