I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the  action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P <br>I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.one more question. Who wrote the Bumblebee theme?Does an instrumental version of BATTLE CRY exist?? 0.oAwesome Thx.which tracks are suites, cuz it seems like a bunch are...?
Love Izzy!I take it back...<br><br>Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....<br><br>What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.There's also a little hint in "Code Red" too...Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...
Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.Lea Halalela on CD “RHYTHM of the PRIDE LANDS“ from 1995;...<br>Frankfurt show was amazing, Leipzig tooHey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.<br><br>The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.
Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!<br><br>Greetings from Southampton/EnglandHybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.Steve explained it, they had a certain deal and could only sell a certain number of copies. When it was reached, they had to remove it from digital stores.I also asked myself the same thing lol

It just made it it iTunes. Quality is better than the bootleg.

I know the guy who did the "remastering" on this disc. Hes Hungarian and a right stuck-up person. Such a waste...

I agree with Nicolai... The sound quality is very, very bad.

Disappointing in spite of the beauty of the score...

Nicolai reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-12 00:00:00
it is a total shame this score found its way to an official release.
The SOUND quality is not even near at, what you usally expect from LIMITED EDTION official releases now-a-days.

@ adrian,
yes... it is way cooler to have an official album than a boot. But still I am so sad/upset that no real effort was put in to do a real good remaster of the score.

Instead the folks behind this release, excuses in the liner notes:
"This album was transferred from really crappy analog files. Although every effort was made to reduce anomalies inherent in these files, such as tape hiss or warble, some still persist."
Hey... WTF... if you don't have the right master-material, don't do a release then!!!

I'll stick with my 2 HZ tracks from the CAPITOL RECORDS release, whenever I am in the mood to listen to the awesome oscar nominated score for Rain Man.

@ Cloud,

That's a shame... Rain Man deserved a good score!
But now you have an original disc with a booklet ;-) Thats cooler than a boot.
I wonder why Zimmer did not want to participate or even be consulted.

Well, I still want to buy it, as soon amazon releases it!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-10 00:00:00
@ Cloud,

So how does Rain Man sound? Is it like the End Credits that is on the OST disc? Or worse?

And has it more material than the bootleg around?

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-10 00:00:00
I haven't received my copy of the CD yet, but I can pretty much guarantee you it's not even close to the quality of the 2 tracks on the old Capitol soundtrack release. Unfortunately.

As for the content on the CD, it's basically the same as the "bootleg", minus the other mix of the Smoke Alarm cue. I'm not sure which of the two are included on the CD though. (And one cue seem to be splitted in two tracks (or it was originally 2 cues...))

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-10 00:00:00
@ Per : How can you "pretty much guarantee" the quality of the sound: You haven't heard it yet. And by the way: either there is a guaranty or there is no guaranty. There is no such thing as a "pretty much guaranty" ;)

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-10 00:00:00
The sound quality is pretty much the same as on the bootleg, which is absolutely terrible for an official release. It seems they upped the bass and volume a bit, but I can't really tell the difference between this and the boot. I thought the quality would be better, to be honest. Alas, a huge disappointment.

So I received my copy today and guess what's written on the back of the booklet: "This album was transferred from really crappy analog files. Although every effort was made to reduce anomalies inherent in these files, such as tape hiss or warble, some still persist." :D

Apparently they tried, but Hans and his studio were not interested in participating.

From what I understood no one ever talked to Hans about it anyway. They were going forward with the release and he didn't even know about it.

Ah, the good old days when Zimmer was still creative and didn't rely on 200 ghost writers... Looking forward to this one.

This is awesome! The first score of Zimmer that gets the special treatment. I love it!

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-18 00:00:00
I wouldn't judge the sound quality by the website samples... I think if the sound was at all inferior they would have said so on the website so anyone who ordered would be aware.

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-18 00:00:00
I'd say there's like 4 themes or sub-themes in Rain Man, Ele ! :)

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-18 00:00:00
Well, it's the complete score, more or less, as heard in the film anyway.

Unfortunately, due to Zimmer & co (according to Robin Esterhammer (Perseverance Records) in the FSM forum) "flat out refused" to work with them on the project, they only "...had access to a safety copy of the recording sessions.", meaning it doesn't have as good quality as it could, and should, have !

I would assume this to be from the same, or a very similar, source as the old unreleased (or 'bootleg' if you will) is from. I haven't heard the whole CD yet, of course, so this is based solely on the few samples available for listen.

I fear this might be the "guideline" of other older score Zimmer releases in the future too; A label manage to do a deal to release a score, but then no great source of the score is to be found, and only excists in the composer's hands, but he refuses to help, and it ends with them using a not-so-great backup tape copy of the score located on some desk someplace, or nothing is to be found, and the release won't happen at all :(

Would not surprise me if the Zimmer - "popularity" goes down a little after this ... it certainly did for me ! (Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about this release causing the Zimmer-popularity to drop, but the fact that he refuses to even help out on getting his older scores released.)

Nevertheless, a big thanks to Perseverance Records for doing this release. Remember, only 2000 copies available, so don't wait too long before you buy it ! :)
