I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.
I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.

Thank you for 'Who Are The Roma?' An eloquently posed question that sounds out in the mind a longtime after hearing. I listened too many times to count at work - corresponding sound to image for a slide show. Interpreting nuance, I felt the third movement concerns itself with matter of dignity, and then hope - In the last movement the question Who are the Roma? is once again evoked, quietly, and there it lingers long after the song is over. - - - In second movement, a light touch to the piano summons Zoe Zimmer's Slovakia road trip photos. Looksounds she is asks same question. Piano verifies.
I trust I have permission that the music remain on page ( thegypsychronicles.net ) Respect, A.

They should hire Bregovic, he is a master at writing gypsy music.


Nathan2011-08-19 14:37:24
He is not really a master at writing gipsymusic, but at arranging already existing gipsy music. (He does it very very good). But the sad thing is that instead of recognizing that he's arranging traditional songs, he pretends he wrote them himself. He puts the melodies under his name. So everybody who plays those traditionals today in a live situation with audience is obliged by law to pay Bregovic !!!!!!!!!
To me that is criminal.

I looove this music. And not just because it sounds like a jewish music. Romani people and Jews had a same destiny in our country (Slovakia) during war times. Nowadays the situation is not so different :(. Köszönöm Hans :).

Political message aside, I LOVE the cue. It' a classic Zimmer in minor mode but updated. I WANT THIS.

@Hybrid
Especially when someone is from Eastern Europe, like me. I can tell you hundrerds of stories good, bad either. This is something that is way complicated than 4 minutes.

@Adrian
Yes, the build up of this short movie reffers too much to Home.

The narrator of the movie is Czarina Russell, RCP's studio manager...

Tiffany Bordenave, also from RCP, is associate producer...


And if you check the "thanks" section, it's all RCP : Atli Örvarsson, Satnam, Ramin Djawadi, Guillaume Roussel etc...

So it's basically all RCP stuff...

As for the documentary itself, there are two sides of it :

One I like : making people who don't even know what Roma's are... know who they are ! I guess it's mainly for US people...

One I don't like : as a European, French in particular (where the Roma issue is relatively significant (had trouble last year with the government etc...)), I don't feel really comfortable with people from the other side of the Atlantic pointing Europe's behaviour... I mean, it's quite easy to point OTHERS' problems... :)

Anyway, it made a cue tune ! :D

@ Levente
Are you referring to the documentary about planet earth, with music by Armand Amar?

Levente reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-12 00:00:00
The makers watched "Home" too many times. Nothing special.

Yeah, reminds me of the Sarajevo theme from The Peacemaker.
Great (as usual)! :)

Ha, luckily you listened - apparently my post was snowed under by the other discussions...

Amazing song, recommended! And kudos again for Zimmer doing charity :-)
