Dark Materials was anything but "a pure orchestral sound" lolIt largely has to do with the types of films he scores.Meh, you're not alone. Not a big fan of Desplat, especially when it comes to his contributions to pre-established franchises.Track 9. Stop The Crane and 11. Burn Or Jump<br><br>Excellent.One of the most elite scores produced.
I might get hate for this and Desplat might be a cool guy, but I have no idea why he gets so many Oscar nominations... please donīt kill meMan, I am actually excited to hear Balfe's score for Bad Boys for Life - the clips he's posted on his Facebook page sound awesome and like they could truly honour Mancina. The Balfe components sound epic and the Mancina integrations dynamic. What's to fear, right?  <br><br><br>I do fear that someone makes Alan Myerson to distill these 100s of performers, choral and orchestral, to make the whole score sound like an 80s casio synth again - please don't!! Balfe's had huge success with Dark Materials and Gemini Man with a pure orchestral sound - don't fuck it up, PLEASE.meh to desplat. this score needs jackman...The "Knight March" theme is really potent. Hans should release his suites for this! I know it'll never happen, but a CD of just his original demos for his various projects would be really fun to hear.I also want to remind people that Cate Shortland is directing this film. This is a director that said James Horner destroyed the movie Avatar with his manipulative  music.<br><br>I wouldn't be surprised if most of the music is more tame without melodies. But then again, Disney is really the composer here, not Desplat.
Shince, outside of the admittedly great main theme I do find Silvestri's Avengers music to be fairly forgettable...the sort of standard watered down orchestral sound that Marvel loves, not badly composed or anything but not particularly distinctive and a bit disappointing coming from a composer who in the past was capable of stuff like Judge Dredd, The Mummy Returns or Van Helsing.We never usually have the credits of Lorne's projects.  Could Hybrid get the credits of Lorne's projects?Some additional credits from the cuesheet:<br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steffen Thum<br><br>COFFEE TIME<br>NIGHT VISITORS<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steve Davis<br><br>FIRST CONFRONTATION<br>VAN ATTACK<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Sven Faulconer<br><br>MOTORCYCLE CHASE<br>URIE TALKS TO HENRY<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Max Aruj<br><br>BUDAPEST<br>TRAIN RIDE<br><br><br>Steffen Thum<br><br>MEET JACKBut the style in Bad Boys 2 is totally different to the style in part 1. so the explanation doesn't make much sense.I have met with Tony Scott, on the filming location of Spy Game I asked him, who will compose the music for the film, he answered Hans Zimmer. :) And it landed at HGW. And Tony had worked with HGW only since then. <br>Mancina dropped out because, he wanted to do something new for the movie and didn't want to repeat himself, and MB and JB didn't like the idea, and they wanted the same music style, so MC left the project.
Last time Disney hired Desplat, he ended up... not doing the score at all...Oh, shit, i forgot Valerian, such an amazing epic/space score.<br><br>TerrificThe Deathly Hallows, Valerian and Godzilla by Desplat had quite memorable melodies IMO.I'm opposite, Desplat is a great composer, among my favorites.<br><br>The Golden Compass, Godzilla, The Imitation Game, Hostage, Largo Winch, Birth, The Painted Veil, Firewall (such underrated action score, period, very Goldsmithian), The Shape of Water, The Girl with the Pearl Earring...Edmund, I think I have the opposite opinion. I love Desplat, but only if he is scoring Little Women or The Shape of Water. I never like any of his action scores. Full of aimless notes, lack of clear melodies, dense but unmemorable.

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

8:30 of track 5 "Peacemaker" is absolutely incredible.
Such Emotion, Such Sadness, Such Passion.

Another classic from mr.Zimmer!!
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".

Expanded release confirmed by LLL! Out on the 20th.

trent easton navarro2014-05-03 14:17:04
Excellent! My fave Zimmer action score. There's so much good stuff missing on the original release. And another bootleg I can toss out

I never liked the cover, LLL might have changed this.

never heard :( is it a must have? :)


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 :)


Mikel Siw (a fan from Spain)2013-12-04 14:28:58
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

My favorite part is the last 2 minutes of Chase epic music one of Zimmer's best love it.

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?

I would like to inquire what the classic song is in the movie The Peacemaker. It is the classic piano song I am referring to and I was wondering if this is a Hans Zimmer track as well?
