Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?
me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.CD RELEASE?
Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (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>

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?

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-10 00:00:00
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?

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!
