@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.
I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.@superultramega It’s funny you should say that about Rogue One because, even though I do like the themes, I will agree that it definitely is weaker than any Star Wars score and seems to lack the life Giacchino normally puts into his music.<br><br>Even weirder, his music for Jupiter Ascending (another big space opera) is far more aggressive and developed, and probably one of his best. It makes me wonder if the Star Wars team wanted the safe route....Ok, not restraint on drums, but I still don't really see how exactly his music for animated films comes even close to being an RC product. When I think of RC I think of the music for the Pirates movies, the early Bay and Bruckheimer films, etc. The work on Shrek, Antz, Ice Age, and How to Train Your Dragon is much closer to a traditional Williams score than any RC product. <br><br>Plus he's working on Star Wars so he's obviously going to try his damnedest to stick to that kind of music, and to avoid the Zimmer style. I just don't understand why you think Powell, of all people is going to be the one to dilute the Star Wars sound. <br><br>Hell, I think Giacchino's score for Rogue One was pretty much nothing more than an unmemorable, and bland version of Star Wars with very little going on besides broken down notes of the Star Wars theme playing and generic Williams copy. Just like Jurassic World. I don't know how Giacchino makes Williams' style bland but he finds a way. At least with Powell we'll get more style and memorability on top of a Williams imitation.
Restraint on drums? <br><br>Have you listened to Green Zone? The Bourne movies? Hancock?<br><br>Cmon...Yeah he's not Zimmer, but this isn't a Williams product we are talking about. It's an RC product. This is what I am talking about.People like Harry Gregson, Jablonsky and Zanelli, despite their melodic tendinsies, would be people chosen for going the Zimmer route. I think Jablonsky's is the closest to Star Wars but even then there's a ton of power themes, and Zimmer hallmarks that keep him away from this sort of style. <br><br>Powell is the last person I would associate with Zimmer. His techniques are very much in vain with the Williams-like composers, like Alexandre Desplat and Michael Giacchino. The complex underscore, the rapid notes, the restraint on drums, instrument variety, the jazz techniques, etc. He's the perfect RCP composer for the job.Of all RCP members, I think he is the one closest to Williams and Star Wars sound, so I think this score will be pure orchestral fun, like most of his scores usually are.<br><br>I cannot wait to listen to it!Well, I guess that is a matter of tastes and opinion, because for me scores like The Incredibles or Up, for saying some examples, are classics inside the animation field.<br><br>But is fine. We have our own preferences and that's okay.Me too! Very fun and « guilty pleasure » score<br>After listening to this one and Todo Mal, I think Andrew is a really versatile composer, both scores are really entertaining and yet have nothing to do with each other
I like this score, altough i think it will fly (get it) under the radar..<br>Hope Andrew continues making scores like thisIMO, though Powell was Hans'protegee 20 years ago, he always had his very own style. And this style evolved so much through these decades you can't really connect any more his mannerisms to those of people at RCP!You can't call Powell "the Zimmer route". He's written some of the densest, flashiest orchestral film music of the last 10+ years!And how is that a bad thing? :-p<br>John Powell is an excellent choice to have both a big sounding and fun RCP score, and an orchestral one which would fit with the previously established style.Cant say Im 100% invested.....<br><br>This will be the first Star Wars score to go the Zimmer route...

what was the music used in the scene where Moses and Tzipporah are returning to Egypt with their visuals super imposed over the Hebrews working.


Lynk2017-08-08 06:00:15
That must be the later parts of Burning Bush.

A really interesting article I found about Alan Meyerson, HZ, and the making of Prince of Egypt. Unfortunately it's in french but maybe google trad can help. You also get an insight of how additional music works (this time by Harry Gregson Williams)

The music at the very end of the film as Moses is carrying the Ten Commandments is so Zimmerish and awesome!!!


Mike2013-11-26 21:07:13
I know, it's quite intense. I wish it were on the album.


MacArthur2013-11-26 21:25:38
I think it is the End of Deliver Us!


Mike2013-11-26 21:42:28
You're right, but it's purely instrumental and has a lot more "Zimmer power" to it. :)


Frisbee2013-11-27 06:27:28
It is the later half of "Chariot Race" as presented on the limited collector's edition album. Not sure why it's named that way or why it's combined with the actual Chariot Race music but there you go.


Mike2013-11-28 18:33:52
Not exactly, Frisbee. It cuts off right before the music in question plays in the film.

To this day I'm moved by that scene where Death of the Firstborn plays, and Moses is crying. Amazing how serious this movie is, being animated and all that.

If I wasn't on my iPod touch right now, I'd type up the tracklist and lengths of the one I have. My expanded is 19 tracks on Disc 1, and 14 tracks on Disc 2.


Anonymous2011-06-29 16:26:46
This is the most complete version, apparently.


Per2011-06-30 14:06:56
Both of these versions have previously been listed here on h-z.com. Or actually they're still there, just not linked to anymore.

The 19+14 track version is just a rip from the film.

The 11+9/10 track version is a combination of the OST and the following:

"It is Only Beginning..." and "Chariot Race" from the Collector's Edition CD. (Chariot Race ""Film version"" is just the same, only cutted.)

"Moses Nightmare" (Hieroglyph Nightmare) and "International Trailer" from Harry Gregson-Williams' Music For Film (Wavecrest compilation promo)

"Opening" and "The Camels" probably from the film itself.

Track 3 CD2 - Devotion, is from Klaus Badelt's Music For Films compilation promo. And although I haven't compared it second by second, I guess this cue would be inside "Goodbye Brother" on the OST.


Poe2011-08-04 23:12:52
Per, is this in film order the one I listed? it doesnot seem to be.

I am missing the camels track, anyone know where to rip it from on the dvd?


theeaglesfan0052011-08-05 03:13:43
expanded score? is it SFX free? :)


Takehiro2011-08-05 03:34:28
Yes but its a total fake. Repeated material, suspicous music (possibly from different films) and filler (songs not by Zimmer). There is a more honest expanded version with just Zimmer's contribution, its about 50-odd mins, lossless, and SFX free


theeaglesfan0052011-08-05 04:00:26
where can you get that one takehiro?

this is one of my favorite movies... seeing as im a Christian... i love it... i have the cassette soundtrack from growing up as a kid


Takehiro2011-08-05 04:03:50
Contact me privately, I'll hook you up.


Hybrid Soldier2011-08-05 16:10:49
First, Take, we're not on your beloved Shrine...

Second, the tracks available not on the OST are Chariot Race, It's Only The Beginning... (coupled with The Ten Commandments) on the Collector's Edition CD...

Then you have a synth mock-up of Hieroglyph Nightmare & the Trailer Music on a HGW's Music For Film Promo.

That's all... :)

I don't know if anyone got the special cd that came in a special package at like Wal-Mart or something, but that had the best music out of it all on there. It was an action cue called "Chariot race". I still don't under stand why they can't put out entire scores BY THEMSELVES with ALL THE MUSIC from the film out on shelves! Oh well, I get what I can. Bravo, Maestro Zimmer.

What you have given me as a musician is....? Well there are no words so strong that I can write them down!
