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',

Did Gavin Greenaway wright the melody for Devoe or did he just arrange Hans' theme?


Dawn2018-04-03 00:36:37
That's just my opinion but... If Gavin Greenaway had written the themes for Devoe, shouldn't he be credited for the other cues that contain those themes (Train, Chase, Peacemaker...)?
I think Devoe's Revenge is arranged by Gavin Greenaway, but it's mostly Hans content. Greenaway probably wrote many other tracks for this film (but they're not featured on this release).


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-03 00:51:20
Back in the days crediting worked differently.

If someone arranged a lot of music on a film, he wouldn't necessarly be credited on all those cues, but instead Hans would give them 100% of credit on one of the cues (even if said cue is actually using Hans' music). Like Devoe's Revenge here with Gavin, or Flashback & Fries for NGS on Drop Zone, or I Dreamt I Woke Up for Nick again on Beyond Rangoon.

Nowadays it's a little more realistic, the guy will rather get 25% or 15% or 10% or whatever of all he co-wrote...


Mike (OTM)2018-04-03 17:36:26
Wait, Hybrid, do they actually list those percentages somewhere, or is it a money thing?


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-03 20:22:01
It's rarely listed but on ASCAP or BMI, if let's say you have a Batman V Superman cue listed to Hans (ASCAP) & Andrew K (BMI), you can see that the percentage is 80% for ASCAP, then it's 80% Hans... ;)

If they both are BMI or both are ASCAP, you can't see, cause it'll be 100% for either ASCAP or BMI... lol

And yes, it's mainly a money thing. Percentages kinda depend. Let's just say the "convention" is mostly if an additional did a cue, like almost all of it, it'll be devided 50% / 50% with the main composer, cause the man basically for the additional the job. But sometimes it can be very precise, like 77,5% / 22,5% or whatever. Most of the time Hans will give 1 to 5% to various staff, music editors, a soloist or even a tech guy for he helped design Hans' gear... lol

I am very glad to own this album too.
Together with Crimson Tide and The Rock, this score complete a favorite trilogy of scores from the 90s".

Ds2013-12-04 12:53:27
I don't think so. If i had discovered it 10 years ago maybe it'd have a special place in my heart. But i discovered it a few months ago and there isn't anything really new in it. It's like a mix of Gladiator, Crimson Tide and a few others, but never as good as they are. Not unpleasing though :-)


Ds2013-12-04 12:54:37
(of course this is just my opinion, judging by the HZimmer.com rating, i guess other people are quite fond of it)


badbu2013-12-04 13:03:27
thanks for the info :)

Masterpiece!!!


trent easton navarro2013-12-04 18:17:11
In my opinion one of Zimmer's best action scores. Hope LLL or Intrada will release an expanded version one dat


MacArthur2013-12-04 18:49:18
Love the score myself.


Edmund Meinerts2013-12-04 19:26:18
I think it is. It's a very important transitional score for Zimmer, still written very much in that mid-90s MV style but also pushing a little bit in the direction of the pseudo-Holst/Stravinsky stylings of Gladiator. Has some great Russian flavor to it as well. Very solid score.


MacArthur2013-12-04 19:58:36
I've listened to holst/Stravinsky it's some weird stuff I think Zimmer's stuff makes more sense than the 2 I mentioned.


Edmund Meinerts2013-12-04 20:12:54
Oh MacArthur...you really are a goldmine of unintentional comedy. "Some weird stuff"...priceless :D


MacArthur2013-12-04 20:33:53
Heh it's what i'm known for. lol. :)


MacArthur2013-12-04 20:34:51
I meant Hey* pops :)


Lambegue2013-12-04 20:41:12
I agree with what Edmund said, it's an important transitional score. It is very interesting to listen as a Zimmer fan. But I don't think it is one of his best works overall, and for a lambda listener, it's maybe not really a must have.


Mike2014-01-10 18:07:58
I would say it's a must-have, myself. Sure, certain tracks are slightly obnoxious in their bombast (Devoe's Revenge, for example), but the unadulterated, masculine epicness of the score (particularly in "The Chase") and the interesting extension of the Crimson Tide sound make it worth having, especially for fans of the "90's action" Zimmer. To me, if you like Crimson Tide and The Rock, you'll like this one.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-10 23:30:25
Devoe's Revenge is my favorite track!


Mike2014-01-11 00:12:26
lol....I'm sorry. It's definitely not bad at all, but it gets a little grating at points, imo.


Mortifer V.2014-01-24 21:37:36
definitely a must have.

It's funny Greenway uses parts of Zimmer's stuff in Devoe's Revenge


trent easton navarro2013-12-04 09:26:37
Why is that funny? That part i basically one of the themes of the score, so seems logical Greenaway used it


Edmund Meinerts2013-12-04 19:23:10
Yeah, and it's funny how Balfe uses Zimmer's stuff in Inception, and how Zanelli/Jackman/Orvarsson/Balfe/Gire/Sponsler/Glennie-Smith/ Badelt/Jablonsky/Djawadi/Neely/Morris/Hendrickson use Zimmer's stuff in the Pirates scores.

No, wait, actually, it's perfectly normal. What was the point of this again?

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2013-10-30 22:56:06
Re-discovering this score right now, it's amazing how it sounds like Gladiator! I had never noticed that before.


MacArthur2013-10-31 02:46:58
Agreed!


Mike2013-12-03 19:35:39
There's also a lot of The Rock and Crimson Tide... ;)

Decided to give this one a spin today. Still a wonderful score, truly one of Zimmer's best action scores.

I remember when I bought this one, I was still in high school. The day after I got it, the day at school seemed to last forever. I just wanted to go home and play it again and again. Here's hoping La La Land or Intrada will release an expanded version soon

This is a great soundtrack. This is Zimmer's greatest action score to date! And the choir pieces rival those in Crimson Tide. Great score for any Zimmer collector.

We said that the piano composition that the little girl performs is Frederic Chopin's Nocturne (=Nocturnal) Opus 55 No. 1 In F Minor.
Also the other piano composition that the guy performs (because he has lost his spouse and daughter) is again Chopin's Nocturne No.20 In C Sharp Minor. These compositions ain't Hans Zimmer. Frederic Chopin is the composer. AND THEY AIN'T SONGS EITHER. THEY ARE NOCTURNES!!!!!! DO YOU COPY THAT?
