Sure, Home sounds like a country version of Time, but is so underrated.. the whole score is very nice but nothing compared to Pirate, except Finale maybe.came back to this one for a while. always found "silver" and "home" very soothing.@Superultramega<br><br>What's odd is that the PR theme was used in the marketing. Same with Zimmers material being used in the Justice League trailers, so obviously the studio liked it enough. Probably the directors choice.@superultramega: The three Star Trek movies are compose by the same composer, and the producer is J.J Abrams.<br><br>And the theme is the same.The score enchances the more emotional and physcical side of the character, and i love that.<br><br>I believe this movie don't benefit a more classical adventure score, reminds (outiside, the movie is an adaptation for the 2013 reboot) the vision of Jason Graves for that game, saving distances.<br><br>And yeah, there is a ideas everywhere the score.
The thematic continuity complaint is a problem with the movie industry in general now. Not just Pacific Rim. It's a problem with Marvel, DC, and hell, any movie series really. Even the new TMNT movies, as good as Jablonsky's score for the second one was, still couldn't keep the original themes. <br><br>The only ones that do keep the original thematic material lately have been Transformers, Star Wars, Star Trek (at least the first 2's scores I don't know about the 3rd's), Pirates of the Caribbean, a few animated film series, and Harry Potter. <br><br>Not sure if this is a director or composer fault (probably director/studio), but it's just something we're going to have to deal with for a while until the next phase of film score trends come along.I think one of the things that plague this score (and many others) is that nowadays everyone feels the need to not only have a opinion, but share it as quick as possible on social media or message boards. But music isn't always likable at first listen. Usually (and I speak for myself here, but I'm pretty sure any people feel the same) the quicker I love a song, the quicker I'll get bored by it and forget it. On the other hand, scores or songs that took me a few listens to fully appreciate tend to have a much better longevity in my playlists.<br><br>At first I wasn't impressed by this new JXL effort and, if I had listened to it only once or twice, I would have quickly labelled it as "typical JXL drummy stuff but not as cool as Mad Max". But after seeing the movie and giving the album a few more spins, I'm now ranking this among his best scores. It's packed with crazy ideas popping up everywhere, neat sound effects, an epic main theme and a few very touching light moments.<br><br>I'll admit it's a tough listening experience, mainly because of the very long tracks which sometimes tend to 'hide' the great stuff. But it's so damn worth it. In the context of the film it's simply awesome and in perfect sync with the pictures, it enhances the emotion, the action and the epicness in a way not many scores do. Junkie XL definitely improved over the past few years. Of course this score bears his mark and his sound, it's certainly not a classical score, but it's incredibly rich and detailed. It's just not obvious, and requires a bit of patience and perseverance. I'm happy I didn't judge it immediately, and I can only invite you to spend a little more time with it before dismissing it (and its composer) publicly.<br><br>Just my 2 cents :-)There are some fun action cues and an interesting mix of electronics that sounds like a hybrid of Tron Legacy and Chappie but is honestly so forgettable outside of that. Why on earth did they opt out of using Ramin's themes? <br><br>It would be like if POTC2 came out and instead of using "He's a Pirate" or any of the other motifs, Disney hired a Hans Zimmer protege to come in and write their own take on the material. When I go to see Star Wars I expect Star Wars. With this I expected at least ties to the first one.So I'm guessing no one knows if Zimmer did this or not?It is sound like that.<br><br>Multiple times in the score, there is sounds like Tron
I just said this before and I want to say it again: <br>Shao industries sound like Tron LegacyAt least Tomb Raider and A Wrinkle of Time have a theme.Agreed. Itís simply not that memorable. Out of Pacific Rim 2, a wrinkle in time, tomb raider, and hurricane heist I thought for sure at least ONE would be a hit. Unfortunately all four of them seem pretty forgettable. Really hoping Hans puts something memorable and iconic together for X Men Dark Phoenix.The first movie has memorable theme and enjoyable action tracks, this one, has one or three actions cues i have enjoyed, more than than i expected, but the main theme is forgetteable.<br><br>Jablonsky would fit if is the Jablonsky, for example, for TF5 or first Transformers (and i am guilty pleasure fan for Battleship)<br><br>And now i lost respect in the whole internet :Dyeah but this movie would be better fit for a jablonsky score.<br><br><br>he has bigger themes and a richer sound<br>
I will said this, is more enjoyable than Hurricane Heist.<br><br>But the first was more memorableI think have a lot of depth in there, the orchestrations, the tension (reminds a lot of Herrmann) and his main theme.<br><br>And yes, is one of the best of this year, for the moment.Nathan Stornetta. the music in the video sounds really good. im looking forward to this release. is there also a chance to purchase the music from Kynren?It is out. Not bad but it doesn't sound very epic or memorable. Tomb Raider had better moments.<br><br>The orchestration is so empty.<br>I don't think it's one of JNH's bests, but it's really one of the best scores of this year, until now.<br><br>I think it will probably be surpassed by his other scores coming this year, especially Fantastic Beasts 2

There's actually a track missing on here - the scene where Bourne looks for Neski's hotel on the computer, it was used in Ultimatum too in a similar scene

Mike2012-12-29 09:38:19
Later reply, I know, but notice, this is only listed as an "expanded" score. Therefore, some cues would definitely be missing. Heck, even if it were considered complete, it's still possible that some cues wouldn't be listed--say, for example, if they were added later on. The Dark Knight Rises comes to mind. This site has a page for TDKR's complete score, but I can think, off the top of my head, of some cues that are missing from the list.

VJD2016-04-13 21:53:38
The track I believe you are looking for is Hotel Brecker above...

So I was having a Bourne marathon this week, and I know this isn't gonna happen, if Greengrass' and Powell's relationship is as bad as it sounds, but I *really* wish Powell could be convinced to come back and score the fifth movie. On Supremacy and Ultimatum especially, his music really drives the film and ramps up the intensity and suspense. His absence was sorely felt in Legacy, IMO, and if the studio wants to reignite Bourne franchise fervor, they'll need to do all they can to get Powell, and Bourne's signature sound, back.

Edmund Meinerts2015-08-11 19:59:30
It would certainly be nice, although probably in violation of Powell's current work ethic (he's said a lot about staying away from violent films, only scoring things his son can watch etc). To be honest, you can see the cracks showing in the Greengrass/Powell relationship in many cues from Identity and Supremacy temped in to replace Powell's far superior original cues that you can hear on the complete score. But I think that Powell still would have had the capability to further develop the franchise sound - he wasn't out of things to say.

If not Powell, I certainly hope the franchise can find a worthier replacement than James Newton Howard's bore-fest that was Legacy. Hell, his own Salt is a far better Bourne score than Legacy.

Mike2015-08-11 21:33:35
"...he wasn't out of things to say."

My thoughts exactly. Like you said, a lot of the new material in Ultimatum ended up replaced with temp tracks from Supremacy, but you could tell listening to Ultimatum as originally written that Powell was really trying to develop the various motifs. And I'd love for him to get the chance to do that for real this time.

Another thing to me is, the music he wrote for this series is a vital part of its DNA. Even among non-score-enthusiasts, most Bourne fans I know have all agreed that the music plays a huge whole in making these movies what they are. Whether Powell wants to continue with these types of movies or not, he certainly did help define some of their appeal. If Howard *does* return (or whoever the composer ends up being), I hope he can be convinced to utilize more of Powell's signature themes beyond the oboe (or is it a bassoon?) theme that defines Bourne's uncertainty (which appeared twice in Legacy).

well he hasn't been active in recent years i don't think but i wonder if they could get james mckee smith to do bourne 5...he worked on the first and third ones and has experience with the series....

Hybrid Soldier2015-09-09 19:58:35
For those still hoping, Powell confirmed again he's not gonna score a sequel...

McKee Smith would be a great idea, but he got some serious injury a few years back which forced him to "retire" from film scoring... Too bad, great writer !!

Scorefan2015-09-09 20:58:44
@ Hybrid, what happened with James Mckee Smith?

Hybrid Soldier2015-09-09 21:08:59
Oh he's fine now, but he doesn't want to come back to film scoring... lol

Bioscope2015-09-10 05:54:32
Do you think they could mend relations with Henry Jackman? His distortes sequencer sounds could be a replacement to Powell's styles...

Brent2015-09-10 09:02:29
I think Jackman or Balfe could make the most sense in terms of musical style. Though, I'm sure neither of them wants to do this, especially Jackman.

if only powell had come back for the unnecessary 4th bourne movie. JNH is usually a strong composer but his score there didn't do much for me and felt like a weak powell imitation.

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-02-19 20:45:34
Seeing as this is expanded, does anyone know which tracks are missing? I can think of the scene where he's looking up information on Hotel Brecker, but what else?

Not surprising. There are always several tracks missing from bootlegs.

It is a bootleg, you won't be able to get it through retail. We are not authorized to share any link's, sites, or anything of that matter on here. Your all on your own.

@ Alex

Nope, but it is a true expanded score. Music that was in the film are here except for "Road Rage", a cover artist placed in 'Film Version' but its not. Everything else that is not on the retail is new music.
