Lovely score with beautiful themes, atmospheric vocal parts and a nice orchestration.This is a highly underrated album. It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera.

I am currently reaching out to the author and co author of the song. One has said he is going to check the archives. I do not believe the singer, Valerie Davis has any info on it. The song officially still hasn't been release i figured they forgot about it. I believe Valerie said one time that the last time she saw it, it was being wheeled off and put into storage. The last time i got into contact with john powell he was going to check the archives but never heard back, now another author/writer is looking, will post back when I hear more.

Hans is sheltered at home (but fear not he has a home studio that looks like a mini version of his RCP room haha, so he keeps busy as always). Still working hard.

Plans for his films are a little screwed since everything is postponed and what is not recorded cannot be (I'm thinking SpongeBob) but it's Hans, he can adapt and will find solutions ! :)

The comment by Jack Afrogarrix doesn't make sense. Spenser Confidential and Bloodshot are the ONLY Jablonsky soundtracks in 2020 so far. "My two favourite Jablonsky soundtracks of 2020" would only make sense, if there would be already more released than these two by Jablonsky in 2020.

Edmund is being positive. He's finding humor in the world's current situation instead of being negative, sensitive, and depressed about it. We're all trying to stay positive na enjoy film scores right now.

Just because Edmund is doing it in a way you don't like doesn't mean he's being negative. Lighten up guys, it was a joke.

I agree with MrZimmerFan, the comment that edmund did was too much and i did comment about the composer's film score in 2020. I didn't say it like that.
