Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.
A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :p
Hi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comThat's the 'Album Version' of Time To Suit UpI'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up. <br><br>It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?Cheers mate
I agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)

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.

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!

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...

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 ! ^^).

There's a lot of Pirates and a bit BHD in it too... haha All Zimmer!
Thanks for the tip Miles :-)

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!
