I'm greatly surprised that the great Herbie Hancock is also in this terrific scoreYes, Paesano is a good choice, but for Ramin it would be better..... He would be the better option in my eyes ;)John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.I can't play the music, although I did play it before, what happened?And it sounds great! It also seems like the original end titles are included as well.<br><br>One interesting thing, the mix sounds a bit different in the samples. The percussion and brass are both more pronounced I think.
I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.There's a sample of this cue on their site :)FUCK! :(Finally, LaLaLand has done it! Many kudos to them!!!! One my holy grails as well. I've been waiting for this for ages!<br>Take my money LaLaLand Records! Just take it!John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.
I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories.  There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention.  Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade.  Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?"  If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.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.fail*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 :(Saw Patriots Day, really liked it. But the score was lacking. Really wish Jablonsky had done this one.
The sticker on the album says: <br>"The best of Hans Zimmer<br>+ selected by him*<br>+ new arranged<br>+ new recorded with top stars"<br><br>*Hans Zimmer made a song selection of this album and was involved in this project.Leona Lewis's "Now We Are Free" is probably the best one. It provides a softer version of the theme. <br><br>Besides that, Vengerov's "Light" is my second favorite.<br><br>2 Cellos' "Mombasa" and Stirling's The Dark Knight are interesting to listen to. <br><br>I think that is about it.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.i really like that end song. very nice melody. would be cool to have it on cd.Hi all, stunning music out here, I am so fancy in Hans music.<br>Anyone has a clue what is the Menu music from Blu-ray edition of PE II? I am pretty sure I have heard it before, Shazam can't find it, I am guessing ... By the time I was looking deep in my memory I remembered :) It is "Arrival of the Birds"<br>

HELP - fans like you may be able to help me :0)
In the big battle scene from "On stranger tides" the score "lends" a little bit from a big classical score.
I just can't remember which classical piece. Can you help me? I'm going slightly mad here.
Best wishes

It doesn't.

Go to IMDB and check the soundtrack / source cue listing if you don't believe me.

Hola soy de República Argentina (America del Sur). Es increíble la música que Hans realiza. Yo lo conoci y me hice fanatico con la pelicula Gladiator junto a Lissa Gerard. Luego lo descubro mas con otros films como Piratas del Caribe,Rain Man, etc, etc,. Queria hacerle un pedido si esta dentro de sus posibilidades. Quisiera la traduccion del tema que toca su orquesta junto a johnny marr -Inception Premiere- Es un tema que lo escucho y me inspira el comienzo de cada dia por la fuerza que tiene. muchas Gracias!

I really like the music Hans Zimmer and the people he works with create and I became curious about his work and his career. So I visited some websites and found the following information on imdb.com :

"He told in an interview that he would retire for some years after The Dark Knight, saying he has been exhausted in the past years. He also said that he wants to help young composers and would produce their scores..."

That impressed me and earned my appreciation. But then I checked whether it's a valid information or not because I thought it would mean that he wants to try to help and support young composers, that he would try to encourage and promote young talents. Anyways I must have got that wrong because when I came to this site one of the first things I read was " Hans Zimmer and other composers from Remote Control do not accept demos or unsolicited audio/video material. Please, don't ask us how to contact them either. " But then if I didn't get it wrong, and I must say I hope so, how will he be able to discover talents? If there was somebody who is really a great composer/musician, how could he get to know it when it says that he doesn't want to be contacted? I'm just curious about that and I hope I can get some answers, thank you (:


Alex2011-10-09 07:49:03
You said you were curious - here are the answers

1. Start composing ; get a degree ; compose for anything you can get paid for.

2. Get representation - Zimmer/Rifkin Remote Control Productions can't solicit material from you or Joe Compose without an (accredited) agent or manager.

3. In terms of contacting - these (awesome) dudes can't because they run a FAN SITE.

4. Networking - everyone knows someone. And some people might know a guy who's an RCP dude. Being nice and a book of faces are your film friends are key here.

5. GET OUT THERE AND DO IT. Because procrastination gets you nowhere.

Now ...go.

^ This all applies to Lorne Balfe's early career.

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of a song called "Price"? I understand it was either composed or remixed by Ryland Allison while working with Hans Zimmer.
Any leads?

Saw new Steve Mcqueen film "Shame"at Venice Film Festival last week. The opening & closing music is very similar to The Thin Red Line score. Does anyone know if this is intentional? Is it a variation on the original theme? HZ is not credited...

@Antas, Nicolas and possibly Damien
The 5-star rating system: It kind of gives a much more vague/inaccurate idea of a score's real rating than the old 10/10 system since it apparently can't display half stars or fractions of stars.

Is this a capability you're planing to add to the 5-star system? If not, well, I like the 5-star idea, but the 10/10 system was really more useful...


Damien, Moderator2011-06-30 21:55:55
I think displaying half star (or even quarter but perhaps less readable) could be done, but you will not be able to rate it with such a detail (you will be able only to give whole star note).


Feliz2011-06-30 22:42:00
Right, I think that would be fine. You could still get a better idea of the aggregate fan rating, or if the HZimmer.com rating really is a 4.5 instead of a 4, etc.

Hallo!
Mich würde mal interessieren wie man als Deutscher auf so einen Soundtrack wie für Black Hawk Down kommt. Das ist schon extrem gut. Leave no man behind ist mein absoluter favourite. Immernoch. Aber die anderen gehen einen immer wieder in die Knochen weil sie passen so zu den Bildern. Hab mir erst grad wieder das Album angehört und hab mal schnell geschaut wie man sie erreichen kann^^.


smith2011-06-25 15:45:11
was meinst du denn mit als deutscher an sowas zu kommen?

Hello Mr. Zimmer, thank you so very much for your great, great soundtrack of 'pirates of the caribbean 4'! As soon ist was available at amazon I bought it and now it runs in 'infinite loop'.

But - alas - I do not understand the textes of the choir-parts, for example in 'mermaids' or 'on stranger tides'. My english ist not so good (as you can read ;-]). Is there a possibility to get the textes, can we read them anywhere in the internet?

Well, if there ist no chance - thank you despite for your great music! Sabrina


smith2011-06-20 11:50:24
ist? textes? lern mal englisch junge dame ;)


Sabrina2011-06-20 20:28:53
Wenn ich besser englisch könnte, würde ich wohl die Texte verstehen! (as soon it .. das war bloß ein Tippfehler)


Sabrina2011-06-20 20:53:37
Und texte - ja, ok, the lyrics.


smith2011-06-20 22:07:52
hehe kein ding, wollte dich doch nur ägern :)
und zu den texten glaube ich kaum, dass das wirklich irgendwelche worte sind die man versteht, sondern irgendwelche fiktionslyrics sind, wie in gladiator von lisa gerrard.

I hate to break this out but....

The Green Lantern OSt really sucks....Its like He's trying too hard to be like Zimmer. Which is exactly what Doyle did with Thor...Tried too hard. but Doyle's score was way more coherent than this one...
