NewsHans' BiographyTeam (Present & Past)DiscographyMediaArchivesJukeboxFan CoversAbout/Feedback


Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(I know this is probably the wrong place for it but I'd love if Hnas would one day release a CD of just his demo sketches and suites. I find hearing the original intentions/ideas even when rough really fascinating.
11.22.19Yeah lol one way or another... :P21. Hello, Beastie! (3:42)<br><br>Geoff Zanelli will be haunted by the specter of the PotC franchise until the day he dies, lolAfter listening to the whole thing, I can say that, while not as great as Newton Howard, Zanelli did a great job in here, adapting the original themes as well as creating some new ones.<br><br>The first half of the album drags a bit, but the second half is really fantastic!Is a CD release being planned?<br><br>If so, when is it coming out?
zimmer said once, that he was very satisfied of how his music was presented in the ost and that it would let the music speak in that way as he wanted to be heard, and that there aren't much of importing cues that should have been added or released. <br><br>but i guess he hasn't recognized how much love his score have gotten over the years, until his first world tour. there has been a huge demand and loud screaming after the tracklist of his show had  been released and there was no sign of last samurai. people complained and asked (esp. through this site) for a cue of Last Samurai to be played in their show, but it the developement of the show was already at its end and so he hadn't the chance to include a cue of it aswell. but atleast he recognized how much people are loving that score and respect his work on it. maybe that has changed his mind and view to the score and a propper and complete release of the score...@Hybrid Soldier, out of curiosity, why is the Last Samurai have conditions? A better way to ask is, what is the backstory with it what seems to cause reservations for Hans? Thanks!Really fantastic writing here, definitely taking inspiration from JNH’s style without trying to copy. And the adaptation of Maleficent’s “curse” theme from the first score in “The Phoenix” is definitely a highlight.No idea, and Last Samurai is not a no-go from Hans. It might have been under certain circumstances in the past but last time I asked him he was open for it (under some conditions, obviously).@Hybrid Soldier: Do you know if there is any chance LLL would take this as a candidate for a propper release? Or is it a no-go for Zimmer like with Last Samurai?
I think prayer is private video from Lorne Balfe's YouTube Channel. Also, there have prayer video still here by YouTube Search by another channel posted the videoCan anyone confirm if "Prayer" is on the OST? Since the video has been deleted, I'm not sure if anyone has a saved copy to check.I would buy a copy of an official release of this score. The Jablonsky variations is one of my favorite HZ tracks.Just listened to the first track, "Mistress of Evil", and Zanelli kept some of the themes from James Newton Howard!<br><br>I'm so happy about this and if the rest score is like this, it could be one of the scores of the year.<br><br>Really excited about the full thing!From what i hearing from the samples, it seems Zanelli make a great score.

Any interviews around where Powell talks about this masterpiece?

Powell for Oscar!

first of all, this is the page for How to Train Your Dragon, not The Lion King.
second, it seems as if many walmarts have completely eliminated the soundtrack section in favor of more mainstream pop/rock sections.
third, the only complete score that currently exists online has extremely poor quality, and is hardly worth looking for in the first place.

All we can do is wait until Hans & disney finally come up with an official release.

Great John Powell! Is the Best. Congratulations and now to the Oscars 2010 !!!

I finally learned why the Vikings are Scottish and the music is bagpipes -- the author of the books based the story on her childhood vacations on a secret island in the Hebrides. Faith in Dreamworks restored (although I loathe and detest their plans to franchise this magical movie). Still trying to figure out how gamelan fits in (Forbidden Friendship). But I'm sure there is a reason. *I love this music.*

This's great music perfectly applicable for this movie.It really makes me feel better.He made a big contribution in movie "How to train your dragon".I hope he'll continue his work in the next movie.Believe me this is gonna be something incredible.

Both Powell and Giacchino are brilliant! BUT WOW! this is the most inspiring piece of music i have ever heard. Right up their with John Williams if not better! "Coming back Around" is by far the Best!
He needs to be nominated and win an oscar for this score.....its original and beautiful and he deserves it greatly!

This music is beyond amazing. When I listen to it, I feel so uplifted and it makes me want to be something incredible. Like Hiccup :D However, seeing as how I can't fight Dragons, my dreams are cut short...

Anyways, I only wish I could compose even a sixteenth as well as John Powell did in this soundtrack. As an aspiring musician and composer, hearing this type of music makes me want to be a soundtrack composer even more. I just love what the mind can come up with - This movie and the music is a perfect example of just how incredible the power of the mind and music truly is.

Thank you -- well I heard the brogue as well. Being a mom I instantly thought of Shrek and the ogres (they were also given a brogue). Anyway, okay on the accent, and the bagpipes. Musicology wise though, I know nothing about bagpipes! Again, I love this total soundtrack. I can't wait to see the movie again. I have not been so obsessed by a soundtrack since ET.

I bought the soundtrack the day after I saw the movie. I play it while working, while ice skating. I love the gamelin and harp -- what an original orchestration -- on Forbidden Friendship, and the ostenato of that track -- combined with the visuals of that completely original and memorable scene. Flying to the Dragon Den reminded me of Wagner. I saw the movie twice in one weekend (regular and 3D) and I am going again this weekend. I am old enough to be a granny and I love this movie and this music! I'm curious about one thing though, why the Scottish sounding music, were Vikings Scottish?

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-21 00:00:00
@ alison
No the Vikings were not scottish, they were norwegian, the music is scottish, either by request of the director or maybe because powell felt that it would be better and btw the king and the teacher in the movie are Scottish.

Your system of webradio is a big bullshit. I've tried all 3 song and i've see same answer "AudioRealm Request failed!". Why? Because "Track recently played". Ia not fair...

WOW! I mean seriously WOW! I absolutely love this sound track! Best since the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe! My favorite track has got to be Test Flight! Although, Forbidden Friendship is great too! That part is so tense and sweet in the movie! You know the whole time that the Night Fury could absolutely obliterate the scrawny viking, Hiccup. Yet he doesn't. There is so much power in that scene! Excellent!!

Forbidden Friendship and Test Drive earn honorable mention because seriously WOW. But the whole soundtrack is absolutely brilliant. I really hope this gets Powell an Oscar (nomination or win as long as this gets recognition). Takes my breath away every time i listen to it.
