Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

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.

As far as I know, Zimmer and Balfe did only a few tracks for the game, the rest was composed by internal Crytek composers.
