CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s music
i can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2
Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?
Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

The documentary was really great !

It can be watched online for 7 days here :

h t t p ://videos.arte.tv/fr/videos/hans_zimmer-3759850.html

I don't know if there are any country restriction, and it's dubbed in French or German (most of it was spoken in English).

But it was really interesting, about HZ's past ! And it did not forget RCP, like most of the featurettes about HZ... There was Martin Tillman, Lorne Balfe, Ramin Djawadi... :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-15 00:00:00
As for Tillman, why he's not present in latest RCP scores? Zimmer & Co started to use Tina instead of him or what?

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-15 00:00:00
Maybe he's on other projects which has nothing to do with RCP?

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
just watched the Zimmer doc! Awesome! A lot of Lorne quotes. He's such an honest guy:
On his first day at RCP Hans asked Lorne if he's aware of the computer programm which is usually used to compose the score. Lorne was like "No...*pause* I'm joking of course I am!" dispite he wasn't aware! :) so he stidied the instruction book all night...

I recently found a strong competitor to Hans Zimmer : Taro Iwashiro. Really interesting...

self edited "expanded" scores?? that isn't worth to check out! Dark Knight 3 CD Complete or an equal edition of Inception...that would be worth dying for!!

@Tim & 4tseven,

That is the so-called 'expanded' score. I found it on the blog thescoreplace. The guy makes his own custom covers. I posted a link for the over a month or two ago. I think it's a fake.

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-08 00:00:00
@4steven: Where did you find that picture? Maybe it's a fake?!

Wow. Unless there's something I don't know about - Michael Wandmacher straight up plagiarized Hans Zimmer.

@Anya,

Is the Drive Angry Soundtrack out yet? I know it's been released digitally, but I want to download it (not through iTunes....I will get it eventually). I'll have to listen to the sample of it in iTunes.

Anya reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-02 00:00:00
As said Dakota below, the track "Mass VS Acceleration" in "Drive Angry" sounds just like Mombasa, it's pretty perplexing and plagiarism to me.
Too bad Inception didn't get the Oscar, this OST fits so perfectly the movie ! (but I couldn't chose between this and HTTYD)

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
ja, i see! :) well, I think all the suite kinda stuff (Time, Waiting for a Train, Old Souls and so forth) is composed by Hans while Lorne did all the tracks for the scenes in particular (Radical Notion, 528491).

Fisher reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
my money is on radical notion having lorne be a part of it.

Tim: I agree...
you can hear it quite well in Dream is Collapsing (Hans) VS end of Projections (Lorne arrangement of the same theme). :)
