This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now thatís good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

ok, it's releasing on Tuesday, can't wait to hear it! I liked audio previews very much, sounds similar to batman, but more diverse!

And by the way, only in remote control productions you can get a sound like this, with state of the art equipment and great sound designers and music assistants, and of course with Hans Zimmer in the lead :)
No other composer/studio can make this kind of music!

@cloud and everybody else, Hans zimmer is the master, he is the one, no Williams no nothing, Hans rules, I mean star wars, what the he'll guys, star wars ha sthe shittiest soundtrack ever, at least Hans comes up with new ideas in each and every movie he does, Williams not so much, he's old and still holds his old ideas,what a loser, go Hans

I like both Zimmer and Williams. Both great. I think John has just been around longer and shown up in some famous films that make him more well known that Hans to a general audience point of view.
Im not saying Zimmer isnt good, I think he's a very talented composer.

Of course Hans would slap Victor, he has the utmost respect for John Williams, as he should. John Williams is a true genius who is a mile above other any other composers in this age in terms of classical, symphonic composition. He belongs with the greats like Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, and Wagner. Yet he also has the talent of writing for film, and every note he's ever written suits the film completely. Directors just know that whatever he does will be perfect, there's no need for collaboration and he can just write everything sitting at his piano. Hans is also a brilliant musician and composer, who writes a different style of music, in a different way. You can't really compare them, they both write for film but in different genres. Just because hans is more innovative in technology than Williams, doesn't mean that Williams sounds stale. I think his recent Harry Potter music was some of the best of his career, and I can't wait to see what Tintin sounds like. Victor obviously doesn't like classical music, hence his loathing of Maestro Williams.

I'm sorry all, I never meant to disrespect Williams, I just think u gotta go with the technology and synthesizers like Hans does, u can't always stay on the old stuff like williams

@Cloud: I love many composers out there but I still don't understand why everybody is so in love with John Williams. Maybe I'm not long enough in the soundtrack business with my 8 years. I guess he was good and revolutionary in his time. But now in 2010 I think soundtracks have progressed to a more modern sound which is as equally good as the previous era...

Sure enough Hans cannot sit down and write an entire score with a piece of paper and a pen. Williams is a classically trained guy while Hans is not. They are both very good at what they do but also very different. I beg to differ and have you check out Williams entire body of work between 1974 and 2008.

However to assess Williams work as "passe" or to say Williams should learn from Zimmer is just plain wrong. And to say that Williams work sounds 'repetitive' is laughable and ironic as Hans is basically reusing his own riffs and melodies in ALL of this scores.

Really with statements like these you lose any credibility you had and obviously shouldn't be posting on forums.

"Really with statements like these you lose any credibility you had and obviously shouldn't be posting on forums"

Why not? its my opinion, who are you? the admin? What i mean, with "Williams should learn from Zimmer" is in the evolution of compositions....yes Williams is a classically trained, i agree, but at this time, the "form?" of composition has changed from 1974. Dont be rude saying to me not posting in the forums...-.-

Just gotta add that this feels like an all out Zimmer action score. And the cue "Time" is about as Zimmerish as you can get.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-04 00:00:00
My first reaction to "Time" was "Hans Zimmer meets John Murphy". Not that that's a bad thing; far from it!
