The douchebag with the fucked up hairline known as Hybrid soldier erased my previous comment because i said Zimmer barely writes his own music. Can't even have an opinion on this website anymore? It's like I was bashing him or said anything terrible.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.Music By Harry Gregson-Williams<br>Additional Music By Stephanie Economou<br>Music Supervisor By Jabari Ali
Totally phoned in...I got nothing from this...Y'know, up until recently, I also thought Lorne was one of the least interesting RCP composer next to Junkie XL. Then I listened to Genius: Picasso (because of that one Balfe troll's recommendation interestingly enough), and now I see enormous potential in him. That is one of the most interesting television scores I've heard so far. The orchestrations and overall complexity is an enormous achievement for Lorne and shows that he can do much more than generic sample composition. <br><br>I'll probably skip this score because I have no interest in Mission Impossible, but I have a lot more interest in Balfe's career now thanks to his work on Genius: Picasso. If he continues on that level of composing, he may actually get some notoriety.Um.....guys, why are we acting like Kraemer doesn't have the skill to do a different sort of score? I'm fairly positive Jack Reacher doesn't sound anything like RN. Really, the reason he wasn't brought in was because, apparently, McQuarrie was pissed that he was overruled in how he wanted the film to sound, so be deliberately chose not to hire him this time. Purely a thing of spite. And a lot of the disappointment lies in those who normally don't pay attention to film music, which shows just how special that particular score was.<br><br>Really, I'm confident that had McQ had his way this time, and with Kraemer on board, he would've made something that did fit the new tone of the film. Composers should be able to challenge themselves to do something that is out of their comfort. Which is likely why a lot of Zimmer scores are the way they are, since he's allowed to differentiate every once and a while.<br><br>As is, with this logic, Cruise should not have hired McQ again if he wanted a different kind of movie for Fallout.Hot take: Cruise saying that Fallout is the best score in the franchise is the equivalent of Danny Elfman saying there is only one Batman theme. Just marketing tricks to get one more excited.<br><br>Me personally, the general M:I sound isn't something I tend to get excited for, though I definitely acknowledge it's objectively well done. With M:I-2 though, while it's technically dated and incredibly cheesy, I admire it for those reasons, and is incredibly fun for me. Not to mention that the Spanish guitar is a lovely touch, and Injection is proof that there is more to Zimmer than some might think.<br><br>Balfe as a composer, to me, seems like tbe sort of guy who's told to get synth that fit the film well enough, and call it a day. Sure, there's one or two scores that go above and beyond to actually be something of note, but otherwise he's among the least interesting of the RCP bunch. Feel free to feel however you want, but that's my two cents.<br><br>It's frustrating that you have to deal with some of the touchier fans Edmund, but I'll admit that I do get a laugh everytime it happens. I love music, but I don't feel the need to get overly defensive about. I would just enjoy it and leave it like that.Meh on this one...Listening to it doesn't really do much for me. Maybe because I dont care for Cruise, or MIssion Impossible, or maybe because I already heard better from Inception and Fury Road....
Even on last year's Dunkirk Hans wrote 90% of it. Unless you are born in the last few months there is plenty of music which Hans wrote and many can remember.Interstellar is barely 3 years old.SamualPF - there people go again misconstruing my comments about some of the posters here as negative comments against Balfe or his music. I didn't say anything about the score. But sure, keep pushing that agenda.<br><br>George, you make fair, well-articulated points and for what it's worth, I never included you among those who have, shall we say, aroused my suspicions. I'm looking forward to checking out the score for myself and rest assured I'll give it a fair shake when I do. I've liked plenty of Balfe scores in the past, I swear I'm not a hater! :pNone of Kraemerís music is reused! Thematic consistency says what?I actually always listen to a new score with an open mind. If I start expecting something and the score doesn't sound like it or doesn't have a certain thing in it I will always be dissappointed. If I don't expect anything and it turns out a score is a dissappointment, it's not such a big deal.<br><br>For example:<br>A lot of people wanted/expected a lot of individual hero themes in Infinity War. I didn't think it was necessary and I'm absolutely in love with the score.<br><br>And in the cause of reprising themes from 30+ different character in a score of 2 hours would have been chaos. If you're talking about LOTR and themes, that's different story. Those scores were almost all 3 or 4 hours.<br><br>But all and all. I don't think this is a better score than RN, but I don't think it's a bad score. It fits the movie, and I think that's what a score is all about
Edmund ........<br><br>Yet again another negative comment about Balfe based on no fact . Sums you up really . The fact Tom Cruise who has produced the franchise has said he thinks is the best means something .we all get it that you donít like his music but simply contain yourself for always wanting to make pointless comments about him .<br><br>The reviews have been amazing for he filmmand Balfes scores . This may irritate you but at least watch the film and listen to the score then give a proper opinion.give it a goNo offense, Edmund, but if you havenít listened to it then donít make a judgement call on those of us that like it. Fallout in my opinion is the only really good RCP blockbuster score this year, and Iím going to voice my opinion on that. Pacific Rim, Tomb Raider, wrinkle in time, and Skyscraper have all been disappointments for me so when this surprisingly came out two weeks early, and I surprisingly liked it, then of course Iím going to ďflock overĒ and tell you all about how I feel. <br><br>Reviewers liking it is fun for those of us that like it. Tom cruise, who actually IS known to like film scores and has been to concerts for film scores (like Brian Tyler, even though Iím not crazy about him), liking it is also exciting for those of us that like this score and also for us who were excited to hear an updated RCP take on Mission Impossible. I root for all the RCP composers to succeed and create something memorable, and when others seem to like that too then Iím going to comment on it.<br><br>Whether it was Lorne Balfe, Henry Jackman, Ramin Djawadi, or Hans himself who scored this I would have been one of the first to tell you all if I liked it. And if I hated it I would also have voiced my disappointment... but simply put I was not disappointed and Iím glad that others are liking it, including reviewers and Tom Cruise.Once again, and not for the first time on this site, I can't help get the feeling that a Lorne Balfe score page is getting brigaded. Seems like every time he puts a new score out, a bunch of people flock to the page with glowingly positive comments (and brooking not even the slightest criticism), frequently from irregular users with very generic names who don't ever post in threads by other composers. And then using weak, tired arguments like "the reviewers love it" (I trust film reviewers on scores about as far as I can throw them) or "Tom Cruise said it's the best" (and since when is Cruise an authority on film scoring?) or "this is a new/modern/DARK M:I movie" (no excuse for a bad score). It feels, quite frankly, like shilling.<br><br>Disclaimer: haven't actually heard the score, I'm making no judgment on the music itself here. This is merely an observation of the posting patterns here.Iím right there with you. I definitely think Balfe is very talented, although heís far from one of the best composers out there. Especially compared to Zimmer.<br><br>That being said, Iím not crazy about MI:2. The highlights are solid (Injection and Bare Island especially) but I find most of the score either schizophrenic or just not as developed as the scores that influence it. Sorta like how everybody loves ďThe RingĒ but I canít personally canít help but hear it as a lesser version of Hannibal.Right, which is why Iím ok with this. Look, I love the score for Rogue Nation as much as everyone else, but I still kept an open mind and was surprised that I enjoyed Fallout as much as I did, regardless of the influences.

@Lazarus: This is exactly what I thougt before. Unfortunately you are right as this would be kinda stupid to release it now.
Still I think it sucks as we are waiting for this for ages now. Why giving the first track for free when nothing else is coming...

Mephariel reply Replies: 3 || 2017-01-16 16:44:52
Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme.

Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.

2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to.

I think that is about it.


Leona2017-01-17 10:47:01
Seriously, Leona Lewis' interpretation was the worst i have heard. I always thought she can sing as hell, but when i've heard "Now we are free" from her, my ears have bleeded. It was really bad, many notes were wrong and unenjoyable. She tried it so hard, that it sounded like an amateur singer. For me that song is the worst song in this "collection". A complete fair :(


Leona2017-01-17 10:47:40
fail*


Patrick2017-01-17 10:56:56
I have to agree with Leona: Leona Lewis' "Now we are free" is like the rock band Queen after Freddie Mercury has died: It's so unique, not a single singer will be able to match it. The closest was the singer in the initial Hans Zimmer Revealed Concerts in London.

Nope nope nope.

I'm interested in HZ's career, not what others make up of his music !


Mike2017-01-04 23:55:37
Whoa, if Roger Sayer is doing the Docking scene, might it be closer to the film version (full organ)?!

Come on! Even Tina Guo's solo album is listed here :P


kek2017-01-05 13:29:52
Yeah, but the problem with your logic is that this is the official HZ website, not the "what does Hybrid Soldier feel interested in" website.

Are french people really this dumb?


Hybrid Soldier2017-01-05 19:05:06
Nope, I made it become official over the years, and one of my missions has always been to clean things up among the shitload of CDs using the name "Hans Zimmer" on them.

Ultimately, yes, it is what I am interested in... If I ever add that "Classics" CD there, it sure will never end up in Hans' discography !


Ds2017-01-05 21:04:20
Hybrid, do you know if HZ had anything to do with this release at all? It seems like such a bad idea, and I'm not really fond of the few tracks that have been released so far, it just doesn't sound as good as the originals.


Paul2017-01-07 21:48:48
I just wonder why was this album promoted in the concert programme I bought during the show then, if Hans really has nothing to do with it...


e2017-01-08 06:02:15
The Dark Knight Rises thing was hideous honestly. :

Just sounds like a cello poorly dubbed over the original.


Patrick2017-01-13 00:20:28
This is really, really an unimportant release. Mombasa, played by 2Cellos, is the only one, which sounds kind of interesting, the rest is absolutely boring and doesn't add any value to Hans Zimmers work.


Sean2017-01-13 12:39:17
I like the new interpretations of Hans Zimmer's music. But they also could have been uploaded here like the fans arrangements.


boring2017-01-15 17:08:42
whose idea was this release.

Some of the tracks are actually abysmal. I thought hans hated his name being slapped on shit exploitative releases like this.


Kalman2017-01-16 15:10:30
Well, I for one like this release! I don't think it is exploitative; I rather enjoy the specific musical ideas and new orchestrations/instruments present in the tracks. It is far better than just another Prague re-recording of Hans' music.


Sean2017-01-16 18:37:46
The sticker on the album says:
"The best of Hans Zimmer

It's pretty cool that he'll play in front of such a broad audience. At the same time it's horribly painful to see his name written in such small letters while Beyonce takes half the page :-p
Let's hope he won't have to play early in the afternoon, because this concert is at its most spectacular when it's completely dark. I can't imagine The Dark Knight played in daylight!

World Tour ?

Guys, while checking the Antwerp Sportpaleis site for the June 20th 2017 concert, the french speaking page mentions this :

"Les concerts live díHans Zimmer en 2017 commenceront sur la cŰte ouest des …tats-Unis et parcourront líAustralie et la Nouvelle-Zťlande avant de venir en Europe, dío&#249; Hans et ses musiciens repartiront aux …tats-Unis pour leur premi&#232;re grande tournťe amťricaine."

Which can be translated by :

"Hans Zimmer 2017 live concerts will start on the West Coast of the US and will travel all around Australia and New-Zealand before heading back to Europe, from where Hans and his musicians will go back to the US for their first huge American tour.

Has anyone heard of this ?
