I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lolAnother awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.
What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.
> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.Maybe try using your ears or brain next time before spewing out more hyperbolic nonsense.Ok tracks? Easy. About half the score is some decent anthemic tracks<br><br>Ghosts<br>Haunt the Living<br>I Am the Danger<br>You Can Change the World<br>Thrones<br>A Million Battles<br>One, But Not DoneOh wow, Balfe's had a potentially too productive year. I am still convinced if he took more time to compose His Dark Materials, it would be a classic on the level of Shore. Now, it is fine and impressive. <br><br>But what the fuck. I know Bay is a lucrative customer and you have to do what he wants but this 'score' is a travesty that will be buried soon. Seriously. This is the worst of the worst, I ask anyone on this site to name one track that is 'ok', there's an ethical limit, Balfe, Baby!
Do not forget LisboaThanks for sharing the tracklist :)Sooooooooooo excited for the film and the score!<br><br>I got the real tracklist, and is supposed to be 19 tracks from the score. Can wait to hear the score and see the movie tomorrow<br><br>1.Point of Extraction   2:24<br>2.Ghosts  3:22<br>3.Welcome To Florence   3:54 <br>4.Lose The Chopper      1:54<br>5.Haunt The Living      2:06<br>6.One Rule              2:07<br>7.I Am The Danger       3:17<br>8.You Can Change The World  2:15<br>9.Thrones             3:22<br>10.Memories           1:58<br>11.Beautiful Sunday   1:17<br>12.The Past            0:51<br>13.Shit Ton Of Blood   2:35<br>14.Leave No Man Behind  1:50<br>15.A Million Battles    4:18<br>16.Day Of The Dead      4:08<br>17.Sabotage             3:16<br>18.Live Or Die          1:56<br>19.One, But Not Done    3:08Visit Ukraine!

The Dark Knight's Score Disqualified From Oscar Consideration




> Hans Zimmer marching to his own tune
Composer discusses his beef with Academy rules
By Hillary Crosley, Billboard




"Like it or not, The Dark Knight is going to keep popping up in headlines all the way through to the Oscars in February, so just be prepared. This latest news is rather disappointing for those who were a fan of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's score - that even I'd been strongly supporting since June. The executive committee of the Academy music branch has disqualified their score from Oscar consideration this year. This actually happened to their Batman Begins score in 2005 as well, so this isn't the first time. The Academy's reason behind the disqualification states that five names were listed as composers, and Zimmer and Howard were only credited for "more than 60%, but less than 70%" of the score."

MOTION PICTURE SOUND EDITORS SOUND SHOW


  Richard King, Hans Zimmer & Alex Gibson


Thanks to our founder member Etienne Grignon, we can present you a look of the exploration of the sonic world of this summer's blockbuster Batman movie THE DARK KNIGHT presented last October 27th at the Egyptian Theatre, Los Angeles

Oscar and Golden Reel winning supervising sound editor/sound designer Richard King ("War of the Worlds" "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" "Signs") as he presents his process of creating the film's soundscape. Excerpts of the movie were presented with special "pre-dubb" mixes to illustrate the variety of elements used to create an environment of serious sound.

  

Also in the mix: award winning music editor Alex Gibson ("Natural Born Killers" "The Prestige" "John Adams") with very special guest Hans Zimmer who revealed the way the musical score was shaped to fit the dark narrative of good and evil.

As an extra special attraction, all of the sound was played through a state-of-the-art audio system developed by Meyer Sound Laboratories so that you could hear every subtle and explosive element.
