Does anyone know where I can actually BUY this thing?  It's NOT on Amazon or anywhere else I've looked.. I've even tried to find it on sites for download but with ZERO LUCK.<br><br>Anyone? I own both Killer Cut and the Blu-ray version which also has the theatrical release, but I cannot find the score anywhere.<br><br>Many thanks and I hope someone replies...  :PWell you can completely forget about it, while those who enjoy it can enjoy it.<br>Live and let live, the score's existence shouldn't affect yours.I said I liked it a lot. (first sentence) <br>I only said that it is very simplistic music. And that's not bad either since not all music needs to be highly complex to be good.<br><br>It's more like pop the soundtracksI don't think this is the case at all. The music is really beautiful and emotional. If people, including myself like it, that's good. You don't have to like it though.The score is good, the variations on established themes is nice, it sounds bigger than ever. I really like it.<br><br>However I don't see why some people are raving about score of the year.<br><br>Ramin is music, orchestrations and progressions are alway very simplistic when you compare to other composers and scores. He is a bit like the McDonals of scoring. Very nice once to have, juicy and good but easily forgotten when you are going to a restaurant the next day.
Well The GOT scores are always good but this is just incredible. The thematic development is really great. The way in which Drogon and Dani's themes have developed and started playing together is really great and you hear it in for instance Blood of my Blood. Finally in this season the Stark's got some revenge and redemption so we get some wonderful versions of the Stark theme! The Lannister theme is present on the OST but the OST is missing a few important versions. <br><br>The album is finally longer than 1 hour and while it is a great release, I couldn't hep but wonder why they couldn't have added 2 more bonus tracks: the iron island theme (when it plays in the early episodes of s6) and the Lannister battle fanfare. As this is such a great album I shouldn't complain about those tracks but it would have been nice to include them on disc 2.<br><br>Ramin created such emotional, scary and epic music for this season and I think it's time that GOT's music wins some awards!Yeah, really, the most beautiful score of the year, and it's for a serie. Quite weird to say that this is more inspired than other scores from this year.I think at least we can expect some interviews about that on the bluray release!Hello! It's me! I was wondering if there is any interview or statement of Hans Zimmer after his tour? He disappeared so quickly. I know there are upcoming projects like the CD and Blu-ray of his concert and the CD with artists who perform his music. But is there anything he said about his tour? How he felt during and after his tour. If he could imagine doing it again or does he prefer using the time for composing instead?<br>I read that he wanted to do some holidays in Germany after his tour. Is that the case now or is he already busy with new projects?<br>Thank you in advance you lovely ZimmerlistenersNo, Ds, this is really me, I'm afraid...
Holy shit! I just listened to the score and this is the best one yet!<br>Ramin really used his themes well and came up with some new ones! I love how the scores has become bigger and bigger as the story has progressed. His use of choir in the denaerys tracks is amazing and I'd love to have the lyrics for the Winds of Winter!<br><br>But let's talk about Light of the Seven. What an amazing piece. When watching the scene you're awestruck that you hear this piano piece in GOT. The stunning sequence was perfectly done and the music really made it work! <br><br>This is easily my favorite score of the year!<br><br>"Winter has come"Really? Damn, Bill... You've just destroyed my idealistic world.Are there any plans for tour in sweden during 2017? <br>Best regards MarcusActually mister anonymous, you don't support the composer. The composer doesn't own the rights. The studio does. So you're supporting the studio. And WB has more money than bill gates, Donald trump and the sultan of Saudi Arabia combined.Hybrid, did Hans and Junkie write any suites outside of the Batman theme suite? <br><br>Watching the ultimate edition there are some interesting variations on the Africa theme and the "Flight/love" theme
The awesome one :D On the other hand, UK is pretty big, so maybe for some people it's a struggle to go to another city if it's pretty far. I did not stop me to go to the neighbour country though (about 600 km). :DWell, you see, Sam... There's a legend about the ''score trading mafia circle'' - people who have that rare (in their eyes) stuff, that everybody would like to have, but they keep it locked tightly like it's their own product, their creation and those complete scores / recording sessions (whatever you name them) float around until someone decides to show enough generosity and ''leak'' it. Sometimes it happens after a year or two... Sometimes it can take 10 years or more... However, only by buying the authentic copy of CD you truly support the composer and all the people involved in the process. Of course, some composers don't care if their music is spread all over the internet, some aren't happy at all. However, that is illegal and everybody silently agrees with it. Yes, sometimes original albums lack ''that one precious cue'' everybody loves, but if we talk quality - we should stick to the original releases. Because anyway - once you get that ''precious track'', it suddenly becomes not that precious anymore. Talking about BvS - I bought a physical copy of the deluxe version and I'm very happy with it, unlike most people. It's just my opinion. But the legend... continues to live on.<br><br>To sum it all up: if you're lucky enough to get the complete score - fine. But please, consider buying the original first. That's the least we can do to support those, who create masterpieces we all love so much.It looks like the haters from the filmmusicreporter forums are using Macejko's name to write insanities...<br>Looking at you, Lindword and BB!I would say that it much rather needs to be completely forgotten, but to each his own.someone needs to leak the complete score

Mini biography from IMDB

German-born composer Hans Zimmer is recognized as one of Hollywood’s most innovative musical talents‚ having first enjoyed success in the world of pop music as a member of The Buggles. The group’s single Video Killed the Radio Star became a worldwide hit and helped usher in a new era of global entertainment as the first music video to be aired on MTV.

Zimmer entered the world of film music in London during a long collaboration with famed composer and mentor Stanley Myers‚ which included the film My Beautiful Laundrette. He soon began work on several successful solo projects‚ including the critically acclaimed A World Apart‚ and during these years Zimmer pioneered the use of combining old and new musical technologies. Today‚ this work has earned him the reputation of being the father of integrating the electronic musical world with traditional orchestral arrangements.

A turning point in Zimmer’s career came in 1988 when he was asked to score Rain Man for director Barry Levinson. The film went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year and earned Zimmer his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score. The next year‚ Zimmer composed the score for another Best Picture Oscar recipient‚ Driving Miss Daisy‚ starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.

Having already scored two Best Picture winners‚ in the early ’90s Zimmer cemented his position as a pre-eminent talent with the award-winning score for The Lion King. The soundtrack has sold over 15 million copies to date and earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Score‚ a Golden Globe‚ an American Music Award‚ a Tony and two Grammy Awards. In total‚ Zimmer’s work has been nominated for 7 Golden Globes‚ 7 Grammys and seven Oscars for “Rainman”‚ “Gladiator”‚ “The Lion King”‚ “As good As It Gets”‚ “The Preachers Wife”‚ “The Thin Red Line‚” “The Prince Of Egypt” and “The Last Samurai.”

With his career in full swing‚ Zimmer was anxious to replicate the mentoring experience he had benefited from under Stanley Myers’ guidance. With state-of-the-art technology and a supportive creative environment‚ Zimmer was able to offer film-scoring opportunities to young composers at his Santa Monica-based musical ’think tank.’ This approach helped launch the careers of such notable composers as Mark Mancina‚ John Powell‚ Harry Gregson-Williams‚ Nick Glennie-Smith and Klaus Badelt.

In 2000 Zimmer scored the music for Gladiator‚ for which he received an Oscar nomination‚ in addition to Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Awards for his epic score. It sold more than three million copies worldwide and spawned a second album “Gladiator: More Music From The Motion Picture‚” released on the Universal Classics/Decca label. Zimmer’s other scores that year included Mission: Impossible 2‚ The Road To El Dorado and An Everlasting Piece‚ directed by Barry Levinson.

Some of his other impressive scores include Pearl Harbor‚ The Ring‚4 films directed by Ridley Scott; Matchstick Men‚ Hannibal‚ Black Hawk Down and Thelma & Louise‚ Penny Marshall’s Riding In Cars With Boys and A League Of Their Own‚ Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance‚ Tears Of The Sun‚ Ron Howard’s Backdraft‚ Days Of Thunder‚ Smilla’s Sense Of Snow and the animated Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron for which he also co-wrote four of the songs with Bryan Adams‚ including the Golden Globe nominated “Here I Am.”

At the 27th annual Flanders International Film Festival‚ Zimmer performed live for the first time in concert with a 100-piece orchestra and a 100-piece choir. Choosing selections from his impressive body of work‚ Zimmer performed newly orchestrated concert versions of Gladiator‚ Mission: Impossible 2‚ Rain Man‚ The Lion King‚ and The Thin Red Line. The concert was recorded by Decca and released as a concert album entitled "The Wings Of A Film: The Music Of Hans Zimmer."

In 2003‚ Zimmer completed his 100th film score for the film The Last Samurai‚ starring Tom Cruise‚ for which he received both a Golden Globe and a Broadcast Film Critics nomination. Over the past year‚ Zimmer has scored Nancy Meyers’ comedy Something’s Gotta Give‚ the animated Dreamworks film‚ A Shark’s Tale (featuring voices of Will Smith‚ Renee Zellweger‚ Robert De Niro‚ Jack Black and Martin Scorsese)‚ and most recently‚ Jim Brooks’ Spanglish starring Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni (for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination). His upcoming projects include Paramount’s Weatherman starring Nicolas Cage‚ Dreamworks’ Madagascar and highly anticipated Warner Bros. summer release‚ Batman Begins.

Zimmer’s additional honors and awards include the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in Film Composition from the National Board of Review‚ and the Frederick Loewe Award in 2003 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. He has also received ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement. Hans and his wife live in Los Angeles and he is the father of 4.
