Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.
Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.
IS * lion kingBest film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...
But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.

Is it "true" the main theme was composed by HZ? Or is this just an urban legend. Considering this is a JB production; i imagine HZ was at the very least considered and possible involved in some way? Thanks!

Macejko reply Replies: 2 || 2012-12-09 21:22:00
I have a question, which was in my mind for a long time: didn't they consider Ramin Djawadi for this one? Because Prince of Persia would be a great fit for him, considering he is part iranian (persian).


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-10 12:02:26
Djawadi grew up in Germany, didn't he? Just because he has Iranian roots doesn't automatically make him the right choice. Correct me if I'm wrong but I THINK that the Persia shown in this movie probably has some slight differences to modern-day Iran. ;)


Macejko2012-12-10 12:31:50
You are, of course, right in every way, but I believe he knows a lot about iranian culture. I was just wondering, nothing more.

Exactly as I expected, boring musics...

Disney's composer choice was wrong. Music Composer should be Stuart Chatwood & Hans Zimmer.

I advice everybody to listen of Stuart Chatwood's Prince of Persia game-series soundtrack compositions from Youtube.


Snake2011-06-06 05:11:53
pureocean.

This is an amazing score. Too bad for you that you haven't listened to the soudtrack well. Not every score should have epic tracks. NO! Because if it has them, the score would be boring!!!! This score has everything that every film score should have; relaxed, serious, dramatic and epic tracks among others which means this score is very complete and selective. Like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Not every movie should have Hans Zimmer in charge of the music department (even I'm a fan of him). Besides, Zimmer wouldn't work with Chatwood because he only works with his disciples and former disciples such as Henry Jackman, Steve Jablosnky, Ramin Djawadi and even Harry Gregson-Williams himself. This was the right decision from Disney to put Harry Gregson-Williams in charge of the music because he's very well prepared for every film genre including this one and because he has experience working in the videogame industry if you didn't know and that's reason why I think it was the right decision for this movie. And by the way, the music from the game is good, but not that good. For the game, I always thought that Chatwood wasn't the right choice as a composer and Ubisoft should have included Michael Giacchino, Jeremy Soule or even Gregson-Williams because of their previous works in the videogame industry. Also, Chatwood only works on videogames, not in films.

I've been listening to the soundtrack over and over again and I can admitt that I love it!!

There are a lot of things that identify HGW as its composer - like it's own mark on the music, Hans has it as well - and there are some particular themes I love! There is one in particularlly that reminds me something though I can't quite put my finger on it!

However, loved the soundtrack.

I've heard it before watching the movie - a thing I like a lot - and I couldn't wait till I watched the movie and give my opinion about it as a whole.

As for the movie; well, I'm not a fan of the video-game - never played it before - but I loved the movie every much! It's very Disney and Jerry, if you know what I mean, and adding this wonderful score gives an epic dimension to the movie.

Great Jobs Harry and thank you for the amazing music you've created... ^_^

Sounds really good so far! The movie was awesome! Haven't had time to listen to the whole thing yet, but does anyone know if the music when Dastan uses The Dagger for the first time is on here? Possibly The Dagger's theme? Maybe it's "This Is No Ordinary Dagger?" Loved the music at that part, awesome.

There are lots of 'borrowings' from other scores (HGW and others). But it works quite well in the movie. Especially to someone that doesn't know who HGW is (like my friends;).

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-24 00:00:00
Miles, I think what that person is referring to is the similarities between a small portion of the theme that starts around 0:37 in track 1 of Prince of Persia, and the love theme in Mummy Returns. Though it's too small to be called "Copy".

I too agree with HGW4, this is one of the better Gregson-Williams in recent years. I don't consider myself a hardcore Gregson-Williams fan, but I even enjoyed the bits that many people are calling "generic".

Two thumbs up!
