@Ds: Actually I prefer Ender's Game (also released by Varese Sarabande) over P&G (but the movie is cool)Pain and Gain is not a bad score, actually it's maybe better than the TF scores, in its own genre.<br><br>But it's entirely electronic so I guess there are no musicians to pay!<br><br>Also, maybe a lot of releases have the same deal as TF3 and TF4, but so few people buy them, they remain for sale forever because the maximum allowed number of sales is never reached...I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the  action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P <br>I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.one more question. Who wrote the Bumblebee theme?Does an instrumental version of BATTLE CRY exist?? 0.o
Awesome Thx.which tracks are suites, cuz it seems like a bunch are...?Love Izzy!I take it back...<br><br>Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....<br><br>What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.There's also a little hint in "Code Red" too...
Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.Lea Halalela on CD “RHYTHM of the PRIDE LANDS“ from 1995;...<br>Frankfurt show was amazing, Leipzig tooHey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.
Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.<br><br>The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!<br><br>Greetings from Southampton/EnglandHybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.

@Prott & Ele
How should we call the page? Lorne Balfe fan club, something like that?

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-19 00:00:00
Yup, it's fine :)

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-19 00:00:00

I`m really starting to be a big fan of Lorne Balfe... :-D the trailer sounds great as well (E3-2010 Cinematic Trailer).

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Hey, Hybrid, i have a question, which trailer of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has Lorne composed the music for?

Is it the E3 Trailer with 2:41 Min?

Sorry if the question is at the wrong place, but the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood trailer section is blocked.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Tim: I agree, however his style isn`t so easly recognizable as HGW`s or Powell`s style .. yet :-) (HGW`s or Powell`s first solo scores were also much close to RCP sound).
Ele: No problem .. we should make a proper facebook fan-made page for Lorne! :-D
I have a feeling he`s going to get a lot of new fans in following months.

@Prott
oooh yeah :D I'm so curious about his next projets! Crysis 2 is gonna be awesome!! Ironclad is gonna be excellent!! He's very original, more than Ramin Djawadi or Steve Jablonsky (which is not difficult, great composers,though). He is more on that HGW/John Powell level of awesomeness :)

wow thanks for this hybrid. i'm hearing it right now at youtube, but it's a 14 minutes cue. until now i'm speechless, what a beauty there.

Man Lorne is the most talented person from Zimmers team now. Love every work from him. Hope to hear many more from him!!!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Yeah I see Lorne put it on youtube 2 days ago ! Very cool ! :)

Well he edited it a little bit to fit "under" 15 min... :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Wow, this cue is fantastic!

Love that "Sherlockesque" part with Aleksey's vocal !!! ;)

One question to you Hybrid. I see some video by Lorne on youtube. There are some signed as Oswim Mackintosh. Who is that? Is it Lorne's some kind of nickname? I checked extreme music site to find more by Lorne, but there's no Lorne, there's only Oswim. It makes me think Lorne=Oswim. Is it true?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Yeah it's an alias... Oswin Mackintosh is indeed Lorne !

Don't ask me why, he didn't answer that !! lol

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
what i'm liking most at lorne is, that he is searching the contact to the people. you know hans is such a talented musician, but he's not that open to public. and lorne gives you information, cues that will never been released, or like iron clad one month earlier on the webradio etc.

it is really like a fresh wind in RCP and that's great. seriously i'm hoping to hear a lot more from him in the future and hopefully he will be like this also in the future!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
john there's a counterpart to that : when it's about Hans and the scores with Hans, he doesn't say much... And he's quite afraid of official interviews actually !! :D

I've tryied (me & others... Kaya ? lol) to make him do an interview for Megamind, and let's say that... well... I didn't retry for Ironclad !!! LOL

Off the record he's really cool indeed, though I remember at the beginning (nearly a year & a half ago, when I was harassing him to release Modern Warfare 2 & Crying With Laughter, which he did in the end ! :)) he was almost "mute" ! So it's not THAT easy ! lol

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
I knew it :D I advice you then: go to the extrememusic website. Browse Director's Cut album, and listen to all so called "Oswim Mackintosh" cues. They are amazing!

john reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
@Hybrid: we should be so happy to have you here and having you as the "brick" between the fans and the composers. It's really so much fun to read here all those insider infos. So thank you so much for your work! :)

And yes, i can understand when they are sometimes "mute" hehe :P
But i have just a feeling that when you ask Lorne "hey lorne, how about a recording session of this movie?", he would just answer "yeah why not, I'll do it". :P

And as for Hans, yeah, the big diva :D Like you said in the past, when you asked for some extended versions or bootlegs or recording sessions, he knows nothing about them and don't even want to hear that. But sure, he's the boss there and he has soooo many projects going on, so it's understandable when he don't want to take the time for some expanded releases.

But that is why it's so great to have composers like Lorne where you really can get in contact with him.
That is also what I'm liking with Mr Badelt. Such a friendly man and so polite. But too bad, he isn't anymore in this team.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Ha, it`s great to hear so many different styles in just under 15 minutes (It`s like RCP-history timelapse). :-)

It looks like it was recorded the way MW2 was (sampled orchestra with a few solo instruments recorded live), but the overall sample quality is much better. Does RCP made another sample library upgrade? :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Indeed, the overall sound is better, even though its sampled. Maybe they really made sample upgrade? Because I don't think that this short movie had orchestra at all.

I guess I become a Lorne fanboy at the moment! :D
