NewsHans' BiographyTeam (Present & Past)DiscographyMediaArchivesJukeboxFan CoversAbout/Feedback

Olive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!
I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.
Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.
@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...

How do you know?

Lazarus2017-02-03 08:37:37
Logic. It would be the first time, an artist releases his concert on DVD while he is touring with the very same program.

Jim2017-02-06 09:03:04
If someone can get in touch with Eagle Rock and ask them, that would be great. I've sent them two emails and was completely ignored.

philip2017-02-06 18:34:34
@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...

@Jim: Same here. I sent them an e-mail last week and I do not expect them to answer anymore.

Still no news about the CD / Blu-Ray of the Live 2016.

The only thing I've found is the official web page of the Blu-Ray producer, they say it's comming soon:

Mk2017-01-21 19:41:58
Interesting, it's A company based in London: Here is their shop, looks A bit cheesy not Really up to date I see A lot of Dutch names in the production for Hans's concert. Interesting We'll see........what will happen the next month.

David2017-01-25 18:32:21
I cannot come to the show since he doesn't planned, though I really like to buy the CD. when are you going to release it.

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

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.

Hybrid Soldier2017-01-04 22:54:52
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)?!

???2017-01-05 12:55:42
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
+ selected by him*
+ new arranged
+ new recorded with top stars"

*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.

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!

I love Spidey 2, but I agree that if one track should be removed, it's definitely that one. It's not an iconic score in HZ's career, it really seems out of place when you think about the set list and the amount of scores that didn't make it...
But I still love it! :-)

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 ?
