This is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.Thanks, that's great!!<br><br>Hooe those sessions will be here soon. Still a lot of music music. Would have liked it better if those remixes, were actually score tracks
Mera Montage is the big rock vocal cue used during the Sicily Battle & the Wine scene.<br><br>Home Invasion the opening soldiers barging in to capture Atlanna, as well as a part of the Black Manta / Orm negotiation scene.<br><br>Saving Pops is... the saving pops scene...<br><br>Ahab Wave is the tsunami scene + and when Aquaman arrives to the sub to fight Manta's gang.<br><br>Ask the Sea is when Aquaman refuses to help Manta's dad.<br><br>Olbigation is the soft piece in the plane when Aquaman & Mera talk.<br><br>Dunes is the comedic Dunes slide scene...I just want the Sicily Battle music!Having seen it I can say visually it is incredible, definitely a work of art on that level. What sets it back (for me personally) is the lack of a strong emotional core. The choice to make the animals realistic looks great, but doesnít have the same range that the hand drawn version had in terms of giving the animals the facial characteristics like the original. Soulless might be kind of harsh, but I didnít feel anything throughout. Also doing a shot-for-shot remake probably wasnít the best approach. <br><br>Musically though; this definitely was a great reminder as to why the original score is still a classic. Like everyone has said, itís a perfect companion piece that actually fixes some minor flaws and fleshes out some ideas much better. Some important cues missing though.ďAsk The SeaĒ <br>Oh please be the cue I want...Deluxe edition releases tomorrow<br>http :// filmmusicreporter .com /2019/07/18/aquaman-deluxe-edition-soundtrack-to-be-released /
Didn't Menken do much the same with Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast? I think the only ones who have been the most original with the scores to these remakes have been Danny Elfman and John Debney.<br><br>My personal view is this serves as a great compliment to the 1994 soundtrack, not an outright replacement. If you combined the two you'd get quite the meaty soundtrack.<br><br>As for the film itself, I highly doubt it will be as 'great' as the original, but that's not to say that it deserves the slating critics have given it either. I personally can't say - I haven't seen it yet.Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.I have to agree. It's a stellar score and I love it, but it was written 25 years ago, nevertheless.<br>Still, credit where credit's due, as you mentioned, the new 'Stampede' is a beast of a track, really added to the original, as well as the 'Battle' cue, awesome stuff for sure. <br>Haven't seen the movie yet, but I really hope it measures up, at least in the same way the score does.Most of it sounds like a high quality youtube remix to me, honestly. it's serviceable but unnecessary.Probably Zimmer, in 1994. It's part of the demoes he included on the Legacy set so I'd say it's a safe bet.
panpipes or flute doesnt matter, i just wondering who composed this :Dhaha thatís true :DWasn't expecting any of that so I'm not disappointed :D <br><br>So apparently this is out as well as The Golden Circle.. listening now. Canít believe I missed this.And that's why it bugs me so much lol. They're literally the biggest studio out there, so it would've been nice to see them go to the max with this release. Especially since it's one of their most popular IPs if not their most popular IP.

'Dark Knight' Score Has Its Oscar Eligibility Restored

From Variety.com

"Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard are back in contention for an Oscar nom.
The Music Branch Executive Committee of the Academy reversed its Nov. 10 decision declaring their score for ďthe Dark KnightĒ ineligible for the 2008 Academy Awards. The score was disqualified due to five names being listed as composers on the music cue sheet.
After reviewing information submitted by the affected parties, the committee concluded that two Zimmer and Howard were responsible for the scoreís authorship.
Neither nomination ballots nor lists of eligible scores had been distributed so there is no impact on the actual voting process. "
