His KPM and Extreme library tracks are excellentOh I know! I'd say I've heard maybe 20 scores or so by him, so not totally useless, but he's definitely someone I still need to explore more.It would be good to see Kawczynski doing more.Chappie was excellentIan - I prefer Rogue One over Jurassic World. The movie and the score.<br><br>Edmund - You have missing a lot of great stuff by Goldsmith! :DProbably the only reason Goldsmith isn't in my top 3 is I haven't heard enough of his music. :p
Wallfisch is a good composer indeed, but BR2049 (and Dunkirk) were absolutely the wrong place for him. He's not a synth guy. He was originally a protege of Dario Marianelli, for heaven's sake - he's got a far more classical/orchestral sensibility. A score like Cure for Wellness is a much better fit for him. I'm not sure why Hans thought it was best to bring him of all people in on BR2049 when the more electronically-inclined Mazzaro/Kawczynski duo would have made more sense for a Blade Runner score (I say this based mostly on Chappie).Ian - no one is trying to compare Balfe to Zimmer !Firstly there is a 20 year age gap!!!Zimmer will always be the best in my eyes but doesn’t harm saying someone else can be good <br><br>Still confused why this conversation is still troubling some.I remember saying last year that I thought Lego Batman was one of the best animation scores that year and it caused some to have heart attacks.there are a hand full of people that don’t think he is either good or should be working .... we get !!!! <br><br><br><br>Edmund - given the rationality you've displayed in your comments, I'm disappointed Goldsmith isn't in your top three. ;)<br><br>In all seriousness, I'd put money on Powell fucking nailing the integration of Williams's theme. While Giacchino did a solid job on Jurassic World and Rogue One (I tend to think my assessment of the latter is a bit more positive than most), frankly I just think Powell is a far better composer - a genuine A-level guy, whereas Giacchino is moreso very competent without that spark of pure talent seen in Williams, Goldsmith, Elfman, Zimmer etcI think it's worth noting that Zimmer's popularity at this point is largely under his direct control - meaning that if he were to decide to stop touring, go back to writing full-time, and return to his 'epic' thematic style, I think we'd see a surge in his popularity of the sort we saw from Batman Begins through til Interstellar. However, I just don't think he's interested, which is totally his right.<br><br>I certainly agree that the RCP proteges at this point are, frankly, shit compared to how they used to be. I mean, even a guy like Steve Mazzaro (who I genuinely like and who wrote some of the coolest cues in Chappie, and basically co-wrote BvS - a score I actually like) just utterly pales in comparison to the Powell era.<br><br>Actually, I have to take that back a bit; Wallfisch is a very, very talented guy, honestly so much better than someone like Junkie that I weirdly tend to forget he's under the RCP roof now.@HunterTech<br><br>"I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world."<br><br>Exactly. Hans, for all the criticism he gets (much of it for good reason), has written some of the best film music of all time (seriously, having listened to huge amounts of Williams and Goldsmith, I still find Science & Religion my favorite cue ever). On the other hand, Lorne has written innumerable adequate-to-good scores, but none that I can recall are iconic. I'd say the closest he's come is in the form of his contributions to some of Zimmer's work (personally, I think his Kick It theme is the most interesting of those in Inception), but even then he hasn't done anything as memorable as Djawadi's theme from Batman Begins.
Michael - reread the second half of my previous comment. And no, I don't think Genius or Churchill are no good; I wasn't impressed by the second, to be honest, but Genius is really cool - like an updated version of Frost/Nixon, one of my very favorite Zimmer/RCP scores.<br><br>Edmund - much appreciated.<br><br>Overall, I too am baffled by many of these comments; clearly there is a middle ground between "Lorne is shit." and "Lorne is absolutely amazing.", but this seems to be missed.<br><br>And by the way, I'm actually super happy for Lorne's success - I think he deserves it given the quality and quantity of his work, and he seems like a super nice guy to boot (how many composers regularly respond to people on Facebook?). However, this doesn't mean I can't simultaneously point out the fact that much of his work is very, very similar to work he's done previously. Indeed, I think this is more of an issue for Lorne than Hans, perhaps because he takes on sooooooo many projects.I agree. His Justice League theme is just a deconstruct of his Batman theme. Clever, yeah sure - he's done similar things with the Men In Black sequels and I'm sure there's others I can't think of right now - but I personally dont consider Elfman's involvement in this new DCEU to be very welcome. Zimmer paints a different canvas than Elfman, and I love both their works.It was a missed opportunity.<br>Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>Seven with Zimmer
Yeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.

Was Mind Heist Written by two steps from hell?


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-30 08:57:51
Nope, a guy named Zack Hemsey.

Again, can't you look shit up yourself? Ten seconds on Wikipedia or Google would have answered your question.

MacArthur strikes again. Nobody will stop him.

He doesn't like Google. They are spying on him and want his soul or something.

You could also use Yahoo if you don't like Google but they probably spying at your as well xD

I cannot stop listening to "Master of Shadows!" That has to be one of the most epic, if not THE most epic cue ever written; right up there with "Mind Heist" in my opinion.

Phil reply Replies: 2 || 2011-05-09 10:57:16
does there also exist an expanded score??


David2011-05-26 01:50:20
Well, not quite, but there is more music to listen to. This isn't a score, it's a sort of "best of" selection of trailer music by TSFH. TSFH has written much more music that hasn't been commercially released for download, but you can listen to it at ExtremeMusic.com.

In other words, if you're looking for an "expanded score" you should listen to these:

Power of Darkness:
extrememusic.com/#album/1820
extrememusic.com/#album/1821

Nemesis:
extrememusic.com/#album/1770
extrememusic.com/#album/1787

Legend:
extrememusic.com/#album/1794
extrememusic.com/#album/1796

Thomas Bergersen's first film score, The Human Experience, has been released on iTunes:

itunes.apple.com/us/album/id429039915

About 15 minutes of Thomas' score are included, which is probably the complete score. The soundtrack is extremely inclusive, even throwing in a bunch of production music used in the film, as well as some excellent trailer tracks by Inon Zur and others. Thomas' score, of course, is wonderful.

@Greg - They'll release an Invincible CD when they get 2,500 more Facebook fans. Illusions, Thomas' solo album, will be out relatively soon digitally and on CD.

@Hale - Merchant Prince and Starvation are both preview tracks from Nemesis II, Thomas' upcoming solo public release. So you'll get them eventually. ;)

It's about time! "Freedom Fighters" and "Protectors of the Earth" are my new favorite pieces of trailer music!

it is movie trailer music?!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-23 00:00:00
Yes it is. "Protectors of the Earth" was used in the Inkheart trailer, and "Freedom Fighters" was in the third Star Trek trailer.

Great album!! However, it lacks some big tracks in this one : "A Merchant Prince" and "Starvation" which showed the best of Two Steps from Hell!!

Why is this listed here? Just because TSFH did some music for Modern Warfare 2, doesn't mean they are members of Remote Control now.
