Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion king
Best film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>
Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far on top for me. It feels like the ultimate culmination of Jeremy Soule's work on the the series along with symphony-level quality for the town and exploration music.
I go with Lair and Outcast as most favorite.<br><br>And also the Blizzard games music like Word Of Warcraft, StarCraft and Heroes of The StormI think a big part of it is that half of the cues written for the film are 30 seconds or less (or even 10 seconds in some cases). It’s almost impossible to have thematic development when you are constrained like that, so I do understand. Still, it’s hilarious hearing Zimmer give the Simpsons theme “Lion King” treatment in the main theme suite, shame that wasn’t used at all in film.<br><br>As far as the shorter cues go though, the Church Prophecy is pretty cool, and I personally love the Green Day organ cues. That was genius on whoever’s part decided to do it...Yeah it's weird how little overlap there is between the complete score and the album. I think over half of the music on the album didn't end up in the movie, at least not verbatim. I agree it makes for a much better listen, although in my version I've added a few of the better/more substantial cues from the complete score (like the cool Angels & Demons-style "Church Prophecy"/1m11-12v17, which I'm almost positive is an Atli Örvarsson contribution).Ah thankyou, thankyou very much :)And the Warrior Whispers Back<br><br>:)

Man, the all synth version of the themes for the end credits of this film is fantastic. Almost wish they would have used those instead. Wish they would have included an end credits suite with those versions on the album.

I'm having problems with the Your Highness complete score. In track 7 "Angry Boremont", it was corrupted. Either it's from the burned CD or otherwise, I think. If anyone has the original source, please let me know.

Wow the Complete Score is 1hours and 13 minutes long.
pff the score release 1 hours.
we all die 13min not on cd
13 minutes is a joke!!! buy the score release and not the illegal download bullshit!

@ /&/

Quit being such a hater. Just because the additional 13 minutes wasn't in the official soundtrack doesn't mean you'll have to whine and complaint about it. And besides, the additional 13 minutes isn't a joke... it is 100% real and legit.

Its been so boring! for 13 minutes, the cry begin. one hour film score in a public score publication better is not. you comedian!

I never joke around /&/. Sometimes (if not all), the official soundtrack doesn't have a lot of film scores. Case in point-- Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen.

We are talking about your Highness and not have transformers - revenge of the fallen. Your problem is with nothing to harmony that it since! Perhaps Transformers 3 score is longer? Can do what no one if RC is too lazy to publish longer score.


You make very good music, but are not the only who make good music.


John Debney, Trevor Rabin, Brian Tyler, or bear McCreary would be the best alternative.

It is me personally to buy prefer official publications. When illegal uploads to download and I think it also not very much. But there was once a time as it was to film remember to continue to publish. Thinking of times about it!
It will come out every year to enough music from Zimmer and co. Because, similar to many things that were for the other score not on it.

While I was listening to the complete film score, it appears to me that track 7 (Angry Boremont) was interrupted. If anyone has the full track, please let me know.

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-17 00:00:00
Well, the tracklist of the 'complete' shown below leaves out the 3 theme suites, so it has closer to 25 min more than the official, not just 13 min... not that it's very important though, just thought I would mention it.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-17 00:00:00
@ /&/

I don't think illegal downloads will be the end of physical CD releases. You would think that 8 tracks, cassettes, and MP3s would have ended vinyl, but it's still kickin'. And T-Mann036 is right, just because there's an additional 13 minutes is nothing to cry about. The film itself is an hour and 42 min, so that's a difference of about a half hour. There is not music in every single scene. That would mean that there's music continuously from when the Universal logo comes up to the time the end credits finish playing. Stop your complaining.

/&/ reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-17 00:00:00
Have you ever thought? If ever illegal gedownload is that at some point ever no CD publications appear more?

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-16 00:00:00
@T-Mann

I didn't realize you have it. I just got it, I'll let you know what I think. I'm baffled that there's a complete score for a film that has only been out for a week, especially by Steve. He's my favorite right below Hans.

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-16 00:00:00
@Dakota

At first, I had doubts that it was fake. But after listening to the complete film score, I was epically blown away. Although I haven't seen the picture at a theater, Steve have done an outstanding job composing as well as the conducting of Nick "The Rock" Glennie-Smith.

49 tracks in 1 hour, 13 minutes!!!! Let me know what you think of Jablonsky's complete score.

@MK

I've been listening to the score, and I wouldn't say that there is a "heavy" Transformers influence, any more than usual in Jablonsky's works. That said, some parts are heavily influenced by Pirates of the Caribbean (Thadeous' theme in particular), but I can live with it.

MK reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-10 00:00:00
This is a treat! Great fun to listen although there is very heavy influence taken from Transformers... but hey! It is Steve! Can't wait to hear Transformers 3!!
