As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the score
as for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picasso
why his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?Modern Warfare 2 is a lot in the album!<br><br>- It's Good Shit Lieatenant<br>- We're Dangerous People<br>- What Else You Got (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- God's Gun (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- We Ride Together, We Die Together (Bad Boys Remix)We're Dangerous PeopleCall of the Wild coming by Hollywood Records, that means, digital.Bloodshoot coming from Sony Classical
Can confirm is in the albumavailable in nz itunes store. on the cover its correct now....motion picture score.What was Hans’ role in the treatment of Mantovani’s “Charmaine”. It sounds like the original, but cleaner, clearer, & without the limitations of 50/60’s recording technology. I’ve been fascinated by this piece for 25+ years, as it seems almost a precursor to Jarre & even Zimmer’s electronic music, while being entirely orchestral. Links to info appreciated.@Scorefan: You know what "Motion" means right? Motion picture = moving picture = movie. U either call it "Original Movie Score" or "Original Score from the Movie" or u call it "Original Motion Picture Score". But u can't say "Movie Picture" lol. Its just wrong or like Macejko said.. "a retarded mistake" ;-)@Maho: Dude I know why its stated "Score", but thats NOT the issue. What I'm talking about here is "Movie" which should be called "Motion".

Hey Hybrid Soldier, any updates for the bonus tracks?

Does it look good or bad at the moment?

HZ had his agent and the head of Warner on it last week... But as he said, "we're dealing with a huge corporation so it takes a little time..." but so far it looked not that bad... :P

Damn bureaucracy ! ;)


Anyway I'll ask if there's anything new, but don't expect anything to be fixed after one week... Not even Hans is Superman in this case ! :)

"tomPoland" (whoever you are) i have had enough of your zimmer bashing. your dislike of the TDK re-release was understandable but i felt you took it to far by calling it a "mistake".

but to say that zimmer is "killing" his fellow composers is utter BS. if you have a personal problem with zimmer-san you need to keep it to yourself if you have nothing constructive to say.

and frankly "tomPoland" you talk a good game but i doubt any actual skill in regards to music composition

thanks! Did he and any of the other live performers (Tina Guo, Ann Marie Calhoun, Lilli Haydn, etc) also perform on the soundtrack or did they only play for the live performance? Their names aren't listed in the score credits above...

Well Mescalito there is a chance we will get that track. We are just awaiting the news about those 2 bonus tracks ^^

You don't recognize a genius... definitely... you want some... I don't know... action music, techno music for dance??

The music from INCEPTION.. it's like a classic music... Beethoven, Haydn, Holst, Mozart, Debussy, Prokofiev, Strauss, Stravinsky, etc etc... you need an abstract mind for understand it... but, anyways...

I wanna the track when Arthur fights against a projection!! It's amazing!!

"it honestly doesn't do much, I dropped the ball with this soundtrack??? Hans, come on!? I've seen alot movies with alot scores by great composers, but only a few stay with me over the test of time! The last time I've heard anything like this, this good! is The Blade Runner soundtrack that was composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott 1982 !!! Vangelis Ending theme and Love theme along with the film is still amazing by todays standards. Vangelis is extradinary! One of my favorites.

The sound track "Time" #12 was moving! brilliantly done, even though I thought it could have been longer than 4 mins 35 seconds, It needed to be about 6 mins 50 seconds, I wouder if this was Hans Zimmers final cut with this piece?

Also, Hans is great , but he is only as good as his supporting cast: The following had a big role in making this score amazing! CAN ANYONE SAY "OSCAR???'

What was the music playing during the scene when the paper fan was pulled out of the safe? At first I thought it was "Waiting for a Train", but that ends before that scene actually starts. I haven't been able to find it yet. Very disappointing because that was easily my favorite part of the film.

@Claude

Time is a copy of Journey to the Line with extra guitar and piano.
And I hope you're joking about Oscar. JNH will get Oscar for his brilliant score for Avatar:) He really deserved it.

@JustinCat

Maybe I said this in wrong words. But statement like "I took one note and make a theme out of it, it's going to be great, you'll see" or "we took pianola and trashed it to make a sound" makes me feel like he is a boy with new toy. Everyone expecting that this particular score will be huge (not in length sense:P ) and they miss better scores. This is how I feel about it.

Inception it's one of the worst Zimmer's score.
There is boring and not enough (little) originally.
Shame On You Mr.Zimmer!!!Shame On You!!!

I am big fan of trailer music and i couldn't not notice the song used in trailer 3. The trailer totally prepared me for the movie and i had huge expectation (which were fulfilled by the way). Soon after watching the trailer milion times I realized the song will not be part of the score because its not Zimmer's work. I was dissapointed but i came to realize that there will be something similar in the score cause i think Meind Heist reflects the movie quite well.

After watching the movie i knew score will be great and i must admit it was not as good as i hoped it t be. mean the songs are good, but for my taste too dull or something - cant really put my finger on it. Since i just love epic scenes of almost all kind and so the music my immediate favourite became Dream within the dream, Dream is collapsing and the ending of Waiting for a train - there are my favourite clues.

Im not saying rest of it is no well composed. Time is really deep-felt and there are some other melodies,cues that creates nice atmosphere but they are no match for Dream within a Dream (for me) in deepness of what they try to create and desribe (some atmosphere/scene/moment).

The movie was very intelligent and i myself like the puzzle, art , math, geometry, paradoxes all that kind - which just ,means that the movie was one of the best i could see if not the best. Dreams in dreams , merging into deeper levels with slower time and variable physics - mindblowing. So the very best (for me) thing in the movie crystallizes in those songs like Dream collapsing (just look at the name brrr).

I always look for movie (and music related) which is intelligent, logically consistent and blows me away with radical idea. Also its far better if the idea is taken apart, no detail is overlooked and several aspects of it are explained and applied in the movie. Such movies are mostly sci-fi and i name few - The Matrix or The island.

I hoped Inception would be among those from the first moment i had seen the trailer and it was exactly what happened. The grading music in the heaviest moments just adds on epicness which is just great.The last movie i was so pleased with was Avatar but there was something i didnt like - now i know. Its more like product for people to look at something.After seing Inception my rating for such movies (avatar movies) dropped noticeably.

I rate the movie very high (10/10 if you want) and the music too. Im just a bit dissapointed that the score is not CONNECTED ENTITY but more like just list of used songs. So quality of the music 10/10 but the score itself 8/10
I really hope for some extedned score.

I wish HZ didn't tell before every film that his music is magical, incredible and give movie new dimension. Because of that people wait for this CD and miss a lot better scores, like How To Train your Dragon, Karate Kid or magnificent and truly magical Last Airbender.

I know some fans will kill me, but Hans is killing fellow composers (some much better than him) with this unnecessary hype.

He is not "killing" anyone. It is not Zimmer's fault if everyone else prefers to avoid publicities.

Inception reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-30 00:00:00
Hans Zimmer has never said before any release of his scores that his scores are magical or incredible, Hans has never judged his scores.

I've read an interview of Chris Nolan saying that there are always enough space for imagination creativity and talent in Hollywood (talking about directors and actors). I wanna say the same toward composers. If there are so much talented/gifted composers (more than Zimmer) out there why they aren't in the end credits?...The response is so simple...it's because there are not as good as Zimmer. It is logical. It is easy to criticize him because he is "illetrate" (i don't think he is...) or what ever. Imagination is the only border. He is only using rock'n'roll tricks to find his cues.
Would you say that great jazzman/bluesman/rockman is illetrate? certainly...less gifted? never...all the same concerning Hans Zimmer...

JustinCat reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-30 00:00:00
@tompoland Ive followed and read many different interviews with and about HZ, the guy is humble. I think you mistake what he says he is trying to do with a soundtrack as hype. Lebron James talks hype, HZ simply states what he is trying to do. It's hard to say there are other composers out there better than HZ, as he is such a huge influence that many have since emulated and used his style. Charlie Clouser, Clint Mansell, Harry Gregson-Williams - all amazing and unique in their own right, but they can't do what Zimmer does.

And if Hans Zimmer says his music gives a new dimension, it's because it did. The man's track record is ridiculously immersive and impressive. I've never heard an artist say "it honestly doesn't do much, I dropped the ball with this soundtrack"
