The FYC score was complete. And it's out since november last yearIs there a complete score out there? If not, don't be surprised there's nothing here yet. Sometimes it takes years before a complete score listing pops on this site.Why no listing here for the complete score?Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!
thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that time
i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?Yeah that is true, canít argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does ďCalypso Must Be ReleasedĒ sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.
@MrTweedy<br>Thatís totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>Itís funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now donít get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. Itís the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the ďrockínírollĒ sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.

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

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)

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?
