Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.
Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.
you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)But the film was particularly bad...<br><br>So I rather have a whole other team do something ELSE lol...Yeah... McCreary's score is one of the best from last year so I'd rather have him again.
I open to ANY composer in this movies.<br><br>To answer the question, YES, i'm ready<br><br>Specially to a guy, who loves G14, KSi and KOTMNo way. After what Bear McCreary did on King of the Monsters last year I definitely want him back.Atli still has his studio at Remote but mostly works from home in Iceland.<br><br>Guillaume game back to settle to Remote a couple of years ago (before he was splitting time between RCP & France).<br><br>Heitor still is at RCP as far as I know, haven't heard anything in a while.<br><br>Nathan Stornetta left Remote in 2015 (against Hans' will !! :)) cause he didn't fancy much that whole Hollywood business. He is home in Switzerland doing his own projects, but also touring with Hans...Atli Örvarsson, Heitor Pereira, Guillaume Roussel and Nathan Stornetta ?Marc left RCP in like... 2003 ? lol<br><br><br>And yes he is, check his page, he just doesn't have much going on anyway.

WHEN?!?!?

He made AWESOME work at the MW2 Soundtrack so I have HUGE expectations with this one.
I recently saw "The Dilemma" and the Soundtrack was the style what all people know from Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe.

Keep up with the good work!!

"Contrary to earlier reports, the developer diary confirms that the majority of the music for Crysis 2 was composed by Borislav Slavov (aka Bobby Glorian) and Tilman Sillescu. After they both applied to score the game, Crytek's senior audio director Campbell Askew asked to work together to achieve a versatile and high quality score. The pair communicated on almost a daily basis to brainstorm and develop ideas, in what Slavov describes as a very enjoyable and revealing process."

Who composed these 42 tracks??

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
"On Crysis 2, Zimmer determined the overall musical direction and produced a range of major themes. However, it has been reported that his employee Lorne Balfe of Remote Control Productions handled much of the rest of the music. This production approach echoes that of Zimmer's video game debut, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. In addition, Zimmer worked closely with the team at Crytek to optimise the score. Notably, British musician Graeme Norgate of GoldenEye and TimeSplitters fame is the audio director for the title, having become part of Crytek after they bought Free Radical Design. It appears that the original composer of Crysis, Inon Zur, was not involved with the sequel."

I hate do disapoint you guys, but this info here is incorrect / incomplete..

I heard from a reliable source that Hans Zimmer actualy did only the Main theme of the score and Lorn did the Epilogue. Rest of it was composed by other composers...

Hey guys stop putting that bootleg track in here !! It's a game rip !

And Robert, I've got reliable sources too ! ;)

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
Robert: There are quite a few other tracks that sounds like Hans Zimmer`s work (Morituri for example) + I think it`s safe to say that when you hear RCP samples, it`s from RCP (The End of Beginning, etc.). :-)

On the other hand - there are tracks which does sound different.

I did ask Lorne if EA brought some of its insiders in... He just told me to wait for the OST credits cause it's a bit "complicated" !! :P

Feared, what I heard so far sounded a lot like Lorne Balfe... ;)

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
@Feared: You shouldn't be ashamed because I have that same 42-track rip. However, I have to strongly disagree with you about the sound of the score. It is very RCP and is actually a very good score. After Modern Warfare 2 I though Zimmer could never top himself in the videogame genre, but here Zimmer may have. While there isn't an exact theme you will go away humming, the scale and scope of the score is absolutely epic and the orchestrations are really well done. I listened to the nearly hour and half score all the way through last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hans Zimmer is truly one of the most versatile composers ever.

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
Why should i be shamed?
Yes I listened to that rip, and if it"s fromt he game, than it's the OFFICIAL score.
When the LLL edition will be out I'll buy it for sure, but it does not sound anything RCP to me.

how do you know? it's not released, yet. did you listen to a rip of the game's leaked beta version?? if that's true shame on you!!

All what i want to know is who composed these 42 tracks, Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe or not??????????????

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-16 00:00:00
I'm a fan of Zimmer since '95, I have like 50 albums from him, and I didn't find any similarities with this score and his other workds. Hey even MW2 had 'that' Zimmer sound even if he only composed the main themes.
Crysis 2 has 1 or 2 cues that sound near Zimmer, but 90% of it could be anyone outside RCP.
Nice score though. :)

Well, I will still tag it as Lorne Balfe only, the same as MW2, considering that he did majority of the score.

Gatterboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-15 00:00:00
As far as I know, Zimmer and Balfe did only a few tracks for the game, the rest was composed by internal Crytek composers.
