I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

So I finally found the complete score for this one (same track listing as the one posted below by AnoSession) but unfortunately, for some reason all the cues that weren't on the album sound like demos. The soloists and synthetic elements are fine but the orchestral parts are samples, and not particularly sophisticated ones either. Has anyone come across a version that has the "real" copies of those cues or are they still unavailable? (Luckily there's nothing really important missing, a lot of the unreleased stuff is just slight variations on what we already have, but would still be nice to have from a completist standpoint)

This is by far my facorite John Powell score. Truly, deeply epic (I mean... Rooftops is a masterpiece of musical score). It's an inspired piece of work and it keeps evolving all along with those amazing themes. Rarely have I liked a score that much.


thejok3rrules2014-10-01 06:33:48

Revisited the score after a long time, it's just is so fun and mental. Especially "Trouble on I-93" and "Bull Run".

Can't wait for HTYD-2.

Gave this one a listen today. Totally forgotten what a kickass track "Hostage" is! Glad we've got two new Powell scores to look forward to this year!


Anonymous2014-03-25 16:14:46
First time listening to it, unfortunately.... Good stuff. But judging from it it sounds like it inspired a lot of those POTC4 awful guitar jam tracks.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-25 22:09:34
It's much more appropriate in this score, though, where parts of it take place in Spain. "Hostage" is actually nowhere near my favorite track, though..."Rooftops" and "Bull Run" take the cake for me.

I just saw the movie... this is such a wonderful score, one of the best i've heard in a while. I really miss John Powell :-(

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2013-08-12 10:43:29
Do you think it is possible that John Powell reunites with Doug Liman on the upcoming "Edge of Tomorrow"? They've always worked together. It could be an extremely nice return to the action genre.


Macejko2013-08-12 12:55:54
This is kinda surprising for me, I thought Powell is doing it.


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-12 15:53:54
I sure hope so. I like the animation scores as much (or probably more) than the next guy but I hope he can keep the assignments a bit more varied than they have been in the past few years. Knight and Day here is his last live-action movie IIRC and that's over three years old by now.

Doesn't mean anything. Sometimes people delete them or bother typing them out, or a playlist generator does not include them. Even the slates mean nothing if you have nothing to compare it to.

@ Dennis,

Thanks for your review ! It makes me looking forward to listen to it !

According to IMDB, John Powell will be far from getting bored in the next months :

# Winnie the Pooh (2011) (in production)
# Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) (filming)
# Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom (2011) (filming)
# Happy Feet 2 in 3D (2011) (post-production)
# Rio (2011) (post-production)
# Mars Needs Moms! (2011) (post-production)

After his masterpiece for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, I think he'll be the most wanted "animation movie composer" ! And he deserves it !

YES!!! This is the soundtrack all Powell fans have been waiting for. It's a wonderful mix of all the great Powell action scores. (look at Daren's post below, I agree 100% with him)

Thanks to iTunes, they already have this score available for purchase for $9.99, you can't get a better price for this piece of art :)

Personal favorite tracks:
At The Airport: It's link the Tango song from Mr. And Mrs. Smith, and the theme for Knight and Day.

Rough Landing: A continuation of At The Airport and then a crazy action theme towards the end, reminiscient of John's earlier work on Paycheck especially the tracks Hog Chase .

Trouble On I-93: A great action piece. Reminds me a bit of Scooter Chase from Bolt and Hancock.

Running From Roy: A nice acoustic guitar piece, something familiar and different from John.

Five Star: Reminds me a lot of John and Jane's Identity, especially the string melody.

Rooftops: This is the BEST BEST BEST song on the entire score, this is John Powell's best!! It has a nice classical melody with those drums and fast action packed sequence. You can definetely picture Jason Bourne, Hancock, and Mr. And Mrs. Smith with this track. It starts off slow and then builds and never lets go until the very end.

Bull Run: Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, BAM this track comes. It's like Bim Bam Smash collided with the Mr. And Mrs. Smith and Paycheck. Excellent track!!

Overall a great soundtrack from Mr. Powell. Ashame there isn't anything else planned for him for a while :(
