Sweet. I've gotta say, this score surprised me in a good way. I've always loved Powell, but if you told me two years ago he'd write a Star Wars score, I'd have been hesitant about it. But Solo is really, really solid, even without the John Williams main theme. In fact, I like what Powell does with the JW theme better than the theme as JW wrote it.Wowww so many solo Powell!His part is not in the OST release...No Paul Mounsey credits?Credits added !
<br>
<br>I didn't credit here JW for every arrangements of his theme & old SW themes that can be heard throughout the score.
MoS, TASM2Badelt's "Solomon"?<br><br>This must be the "famous" Dark Knight reference that the "critics" are talking about.I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). Itís fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but donít criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldnít afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.
I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said noI Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from WallfischOne-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!<br><br>They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.So you can't wait to hear the score but you already say it's a great score ?<br><br><br>#inception
Another great score from Benjamin Wallfisch can't wait to hear the score & see the movie <br><br>Music By Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Additional Music By John Paesano & Adam Hochstatter<br>Orchestra Conducted By Tim Williams<br>Orchestrations By Peter Bateman & David J. KrystalWhy is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.<br><br>And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring. <br>And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...Re-listening the score again...Ö.Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...Ö..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.

If you want to upgrade the listening experience, I suggest you add "Real in Rio" in the first track place, "Pretty Bird" before "Chained Chase" and "Sapo Cai" after "Birdnapped".
Its the chronogichal order, like on the movie. I didn't care too much for the other songs from the song soundtrack.

Well, i think Powell has returned to its root, making a high quality animation score. I must admit that Mars Needs Moms score was such a disappointment to me, but a bit. Well, he returns anyway.

-Morning routine: Great theme, i mean a great original theme( not that recycled theme from ICEAGE3 that Powell used in MNM.)
-Locked up, Chained chase: a great fast-paced theme( not that recycled style from PAYCHECK that Powell used in MNM)
-Umbrellas rio: had a Brazillian-kind-of-theme, relaxing.
-Motorbike: great, loud, A full brazilian action theme.
-Bird fight: funny fight theme.
-Rio airport: a usual great Powell-ly final-battle theme. I like this kind of theme, so, this is my best track.
-Flying: joyfull track.

I think Powell is great when he deals with a local music instrument. Like in HTTYD, etc. Powell, you're still the masterpiece.

Guys, don't forget to check out the song album too! It contains lots of Powell's material too, specially the ending of "Sapo Cai" ;)

Dominic Lewis seems to have helped John a lot on this one. Was there any particular reason for that?

I think you can't compare these composers however Powell has proven to be one of the greatest animation composers in history of cinema.

@Mikel Siw (a fan from Spain), Yeah, John Powell is brilliant.

Mikel Siw (a fan from Spain) reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-12 00:00:00
Maybe, but honestly i see John Powell like the legendary Jerry Goldsmith. Giacchino is the successor of Williams.
Only is my opinion :__:
