man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.
I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.

8 additional composers! Busy score!


Mike2013-07-17 00:16:40
If I'm not mistaken, the reason there's so many is because Verbinski made some decision that involved the need for the score to be reworked, almost from scratch, in a short time.

It seems Hans likes to take exisiting pieces of music and mixes them instead of writing new music.
Also the main theme is just another version of Jack Sparrow's theme.
I think his last REALLY good score was King Arthur.

The new "Lone Ranger" trailer states: "MUSIC BY HANS ZIMMER" !!!

I thought it was scored by Jack White, but this is AWESOME news!


Macejko2012-12-11 13:08:03
It's a proof that justice exists!


Tim2012-12-11 17:37:51
Yay! Before Hans Jack White was on the notes - at least that's what imbd said at that time ;)


Vordmira2012-12-12 00:19:10
Jack White might sing a theme song for the film which is co-written by Hans Zimmer


Mike2012-12-12 00:28:21
Speaking of films Hans Zimmer will score, did anyone see the newest trailer for Man of Steel? The music sounded very Gladiator-ish, but I don't know if that's what it was.


Mr. Charles2012-12-12 01:49:22
I hear it, Mike. It almost sounds like an alternate version of "Elysium". It's not quite what we hear on the OST. If it's not Gladiator, it's definitely Lisa Gerrard. Without a doubt


Zantlwisder2012-12-12 03:31:10
It's Lisa Gerrard's "Elegy"


tomPoland2012-12-12 13:50:15
it's terrible news - hz is making MoS, he shouldn't involve in something else
no minions, co-writers, and so on - pure Zimmer please, its THE SUPERMAN, no some B class movie


Ds2012-12-12 13:56:59
I think the music we hear in the beginning of the MoS trailer is the same track we heard in Zack Snyder's movie "Legend of the Guardians". Kind of a remix of the Lisa Gerrard song from "Man on Fire".


Ds2012-12-12 14:38:18
No sorry i was wrong, this is definitely "Elegy" by Lisa Gerrard. Sorry!


blu2012-12-12 15:17:39
I am pretty sure master Z can handle this whilst giving MoS the best he can. These guys have never failed to deliver under tight deadlines before.


tomPoland2012-12-12 15:42:06
that's the point - there is no tight deadlines! he has like 7 months to create something memorable, epic, climatic; with orchestra, choir and all that goosebump stuff

taking another project will make MoS worse that it could be, i fear


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-12 15:58:34
You speak like Hans is just starting working on MOS.

You think he was sleeping in the last 5 months ? ;)


Pierre2012-12-12 17:39:06
He's currently recording Man of Steel. That means it's written. Loads of time to work on the Lone Ranger.


Jasper2012-12-12 18:16:46
I honestly think that the coming year is going to be the most exciting Hans Zimmer year in a long time. As far as I know, he'll be doing the soundtracks for 3 major films next year, none of them sequels. All new themes, all new music. Looking forward to an amazing 2013. If the world doesn't end, that is :p


Mike2012-12-12 22:13:12
I'm excited for the same reason, Jasper, but we shouldn't get our hopes too high. Maybe he'll be rushed and we'll have another Curse of the Black Pearl that takes cues from his other movies.

In all seriousness though, I'm really excited. Especially for Man of Steel.


Ds2012-12-12 22:21:48
Man of Steel & Lone Ranger scores will certainly be great, but i think Lone Ranger is more the kind of movie that needs a true fantastic and epic score - the kind of movie for which Hans is the best.


Joshua2012-12-12 22:24:37
Score for Man Of Steel records in mid January. He'll have 5-6 months to work on Lone Ranger.


Mike2012-12-12 22:35:34

Thank you


Jiri W Krecek2011-09-09 05:47:06
THe flying bat song is Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner


S2012-01-01 03:26:32
But the 2.15 bit is actually from 'An der schönen blauen Donau Waltz' composed by Johann Strauss II

The song when Rango walks out in the desert isn't by Zimmer. It's Danny Elfmans song "Finale" from the Movie "The Kingdom" - don't know why they used this one...wasn't Zimmer able to compose a better track?

That little track if i think its the same as what you mean, is kind of a steller reprise of the Rango theme:

The OSt version cuts that piece out and instead uses a banjo intro, while th emovie cuts right to the guitar then that piece, then the end....I found it weird. I dont know who composed it tho.

Trent Easton Navarro reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Norm

Maybe it was used in the temp track and Verbinski really liked it. I thought it fitted the scene perfectly, best piece of music in the entire film. Judging by the rest of the score it's pretty obvious Zimmer wasn't capable to compose something better.

Norm reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Trent

You're right - that track fits the scene perfectly. But if I was the composer for a movie and the director said to me: "Don't Bother - we use the work of another Composer for that scene" I would have worked my ass of the create a track a hundred times better! Just wondered why Zimmer hasn't done that.
