...that response only made you look more suspicious, as it was so pre-programmed feeling.@AndrewP *Robocop voice* obey the law or get erased creepSo if I say I love the score and itís amazing then Iím a bot !!!!!!!!! What a rediculois theoryHi, I'm new to this site and a big fan of Zimmer. Blade Runner is definitely one of his best works (and don't forget Wallfisch). Anyways, I'm definitely anticipating Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune film and I wonder if he'll go to Zimmer to do the project. That would be awesome if that happened.This place is not exactly a democracy, if something is not of my liking I get rid of it. Plain & simple.
^^<br><br>For the sake of fairness, I think the admins should delete both the guys spamming the thread with whining, as well as the Balfe-bots spamming the thread with positivity while simultaneously denouncing "haters." (This does not apply to most people in the thread, but you know who I mean.)I created a suite of what I believe are the best cues on the album, and attempted to make some interesting variations with the cues themselves in terms of transitions and such. Tracks included are Fallout, The Exchange, Escape Through Paris, Stairs and Rooftops, Free Fall, and Mission: Accomplished. Feel free to check it out, it helps make the whole score feel more melodic in my opinion!<br><br>https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCioYxbgNsqFhZ15onqcTlFA/vid eosBalfe haters will hate this !!!<br><br>But itís amazing . <br><br>Itís emotional then EPIC!<br><br>It can only be purchased at the Kynren site in Bishop Auckland, UK, during the show season. Google Kynren and hope to see you there soon! :) Hope this helps. Kind RegardsAgree with this 100%
People are on here shitting on Giacchino and Powell saying Rouge One has a better score or people saying Solo has a better score and Iím over here like yep still listening to the Star Wars Original Trilogy And Prequel Trilogy scores over here. But I think they both gave Williams Justice and did good.@HunterTech - because Cruise and the studio *really* wanted him back after Rogue Nation's success, despite the producers' initial plan for the franchise being to have each entry done by a different director. Hence, McQuarrie's condition that he'll be back as long as he does a completely different film.<br><br>And context is important because once you realise the *film itself* is heavily influenced by Nolan with a big dash of Fury Road-esque building action momentum, then the decision to have Balfe on board and the score to sound all Zimmer/RCP as opposed to more symphonic a-la Kraemer/Giacchino makes sense.So.......why not get a new director then? I admire his efforts in trying to attempt something different for every sequel, but he's eventually gonna get tired if he keeps coming back. Plus, there's been evidence that surfaced to suggest that there was a very specific reason in Kraemer not returning, which don't necessarily contradict what McQ is saying here.<br><br>Despite all this, I'm very excited for Fallout as a whole. I've been able to enjoy films with disappointing scores before (*cough*BR2049*cough*).Mephariel, fair enough. I see your point as well.<br><br>mpolonest123, I see your point.<br><br>But looking back at the MI2 score now, compared to some recent MV/RC stuff......it's just heads and tails above them. Again, that's just my opinion. There is a clear theme here, there is an actual structure. Not just some noisy sound effects thrown in the blender.
@HunterTech - McQ said at every opportunity that a condition of his coming back would be making MI Fallout as if a different director was doing it. Which is why he got a new DoP, new composer, new costume designer etcBecause that opinion is clearly wrong when Dunkirk came out in 2017.I can't agree with Genius: Picasso. I like the score, but it doesn't have enough direction. Just a lot of soundscaping. It is like the score is just there. <br><br>Balfe has this same problem with a lot of his scores.<br><br>I am so tire of people claiming Balfe has potential. It is like a basketball fan constantly claiming that Player X is two years away from being two years away. Every year people say Balfe is going to do something great. I am still waiting for this. That said, I haven't listened to MI:6 yet.Christopher Nolan of music? You serious? You compare Balfe with Nolan, one of the most talented directors of this generation? Nolan always does his own shit. He doesn't tempt scenes from other movies and recolor them and call them his. <br><br>Has Balfe written a great score that is truly his own yet? Maybe I just haven't heard it. <br><br>The only thing Balfe and Nolan has in common is that they are both white and they are both British.So I've finally decided to give this a listen today, and it was a lot of fun! The general quirkiness, source cues that actually benefit the score, and one of the best themes that I've heard from Zimmer in Moriarty certainly make this one a keeper. A lot of people barp on the OST, but it certainly made me interested to hear the music in a better form. I'll probably have to listen to it again before forming a definitive opinion, but as is, it managed to actually live up to the hype.

Hans so where is that voices by people of th world?!!! i knew that was a commercial joke.


matthew2012-08-18 21:38:25
well, maybe it wasn't that angry and loud as he expected so it became an abondoned concept. but that's his job = making direct choices. so he did the chant in a different way. BUT...
the chant is really an interesting topic to talk about because
I think it was an amazing idea but it was presented so badly in the film and also in the score release. the mix is soo awful.
you have to use headphones to hear it. especially in Imagine The Fire (one of the best hollywood-blockbuster-action-here-comes-Chris-Nolan track ever)
so what Hans created is again beyond imagination but the mix or I don't know what I'm not a composer but it yust doesn't sound right to my ear. I can't wake up my neighbours with the chant...
I'm not disappointed, I'm angry


Ds2012-08-19 18:48:44
Personnally i think the chant is very cool and well used! Maybe not Łber-loud but still nice!


Lucas2012-09-02 20:40:25
About the chant: if thousands of people screamed at once, I don't think we would get a 'clean' sound anyway. I believe Hans mixed it in that diffuse way, kinda stifled by the orchestrated elements to improve the deep original proposition of the chant: it's like a ghost that keeps reminding you of what you are and what you need to be. The chant is the heart of the soundtrack and the orchestra builds itself upon it and envelope it, keeping the chant deep inside - there where you can't reach but you can't run from as well. Love the soundtrack.

The voices mixed so bad! like ''Angels & Demons'' are apathetic and ridiculous!

Repeating of previous versions along with inception shadows, This is weakest in the series!

After hearing i also remember King Artur for its ambient and huge accents but this one is more rowdy!

Epic film deserves epic music - that's not it. Standard RCP music. There's even Scorpionok in there!
5/10 - will verify after movie.

Where is that incredible stuff that HZ did with huge orchestra? He said that this will be something crazy, that he never had done.


ananymous2012-07-11 18:11:59
Exactly how it looks like ...
The german word for "promise" has two meanings.
"Versprechen" means "promise" or "misspeak".
Maybe we just misunderstood him.


Pierre2012-07-11 18:56:38
He probably meant, a huge choir.

But I don't think this is standard RCP music. It's a great score, epic music for what looks like an epic film, a wonderful progression and development of the previous entries in the franchise, and above all, it's a million miles better than all the drivel that comes out of people like Djawadi, Jablonsky, Jackman, Zanelli, Orvarsson, Dooley, Margeson, and Balfe when they go for solo efforts.


tomPoland2012-07-12 07:51:58
X-Men First Class is better, when it comes to comic-based score.

Bane and Catwoman has nice themes, but thats it.
I just expected more, especially after very weak Sherlock and Pirates.

It's missing a number of the great tracks featured in the trailers. Namely all the tracks from the Official Trailer 3. Kind of disappointing, hope they will be released sometime.

It was released as a HD MP3 in the audio download package from the "Imported from Gotham City" contest. Not only that, but they packed it with the stems (meaning they also released the separate recordings that it was made from, the violins in one file, the chanting in another, all separated, etc.)
