Dear administrators,<br>may I ask why the biographie of Mr Zimmer on this page feels kind of outdated? It feels a bit strange in 2019 that it states 'Madagascar' ot 'Batman Begins' are still 'upcoming pojects'...<br>Mr Zimmer - I'd like to thank you so much for your wonderful work.<br>If I'll ever be asked, what the most inequity on earth is, I'd say 'That Hans Zimmer didn`t receive more Academy Awards for the fabulous work he's doing" (Pirates of the Carribean?? Inception?? etc...) Please continue in enriching our lives in the way you`re doing it right now.  <br>Looking forward to the next concert 'World of Hans Zimmer' in Hamburg, 2019!!!For some reason they never release the songs that Zimmer collaborated with the singers to make. They didn't release Radiohead's song feat Zimmer either.<br><br>But yeah, that theme was incredible.@hybrid Is the single with sia going to be released?J<br><br>It is on iTunes already.How have you guys heard the album already? :0
Jasha is not at Bleeding Fingers anymore, and Dave is busy working with Hans... :)Did Jacob Shea have to do everything himself on this one?What happened to Jasha Klebe and David Fleming who was working with him on Planet Earth and Blue Planet?That amazing tune that featured Sia from the 4-minute trailer doesn't seem to be a part of this album, is it? Will that ever be made available?Hi there, I believe the border post track and expanded version was just a fanmade project I put together years ago, I'm working on a new fanmade project which is 100 percent original and inspired by Hans Zimmer's music from the 90's.<br>I'll post a link as soon as I finish mastering it. I might have to create a youtube account so I can upload itCan't wait to hear this. I am huge fan of Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II.
Is nobody going to talk about this amazing soundtrack???I know I´m 10 years late, but god wish this got complete recordings release, so much music is missing...The track in the video I linked sounds decent. Works well for the scene.Back in 2003/2004 some guy made his own fan-made "expanded score". <br>Some tracks were actually OST tracks looped, with some drums added in the mix, some were from an unknown source. I only remember some badly-mixed synth cues that sounded like home-made, experimental material.would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/
Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)
<br>
<br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.
<br>
<br>### EDITED ###There is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.
<br>
<br>### EDITED ###But the scores comes out in 1th November

Hybrid, when you upload Harry's Music??

HeyYOU reply Replies: 13 || 2011-07-29 16:20:37
So I listened to the entire score, not that impressed to be honest. Don't see why the fans rating is so high...


kaka2011-07-29 16:26:48
I agree. Im gonna have to stop taking my sources seriously...I dont wanna go back and say Wolverine score, but...like that score, I found one or 2 tracks that are ok, while the rest of it just slides into obscurity for me...


Matteo2011-07-29 17:25:44
it's a copy-past from Wolverine :S


kaka2011-07-29 20:42:12
Sadly...It sure as hell sounds like it. I caught underscore from Man on Fire. And when Harry brings up Man in Fire in his score, you know it's being phoned in.



Matteo2011-07-29 21:36:28
i would like that harry return to his old style...like Armageddon,Broken Arrow...The Rock....sadly :(


HGW42011-07-30 00:36:48
I don't understand you guys...it is a great score. You complain that you hear elements from his other scores...obviously...that is why it is a Harry Gregson-Williams score. All composers use the same motifs in their compositions. That is why you can listen to a score and know who composed it without reading the credits. Its quite obvious. The same is true for the greats: Mozart, Beethoven...I believe this is an excellent score. Too bad you guys can't enjoy things that are wonderful.


kaka2011-07-30 19:47:09
you call this wonderful? Ok.


Drake2011-07-31 00:59:47
I agree as well. Harry hasn't written a really good score since Narnia and Kingdom of Heaven. The only good tracks were Jake Lonergan/See You Around, and Return to the Cabin.


kaka2011-07-31 01:19:27
LOL you're giving it less credit than I did...I counted at least 5 tracks - Lonergan, Dolarhyde, See You around, Return to Cabin, and lastly...Do You Remember Me.

FYI I only picked the final tracks because they all sound like they belong together and transition well, while I only picked Dolarhyde because its the secondary theme to the film aside from Lonergan...But as a whole? This is Wolverine all over again.


Drake2011-07-31 03:26:24
lol I found Dolarhyde a pretty good track.

The reason I'm being pretty harsh on this is probably because i was hoping for a little more "Western flair' to it, kind of like Greg Edmundson's score for the TV show Firefly (also a space-cowboy genre). Not a copy/paste of Wolverine.


kaka2011-07-31 04:20:48
Yeah...the only Western Flair i got from this score was the beginning theme and the ending theme. This seems tobe the one case where just because you add acoustic guitar to a temo score does nto make it Western. At least Trevor Rabin had the decency to give us some BANJO with his American Outlaws Score, dammit! And I hates that score!


Snake 2011-08-01 07:58:38
Even though I like this score, kaka is right; some samples are taken from Wolverine. But this isn't strange for Hans Zimmer's apprentices. An example; Steve Jablonsky and his all Transformers scores; he uses all samples from that Gregson-Williams and Zimmer use or used and fans still like his works. Another examples; Hans Zimmer and his Pirates of the Caribbean scores and finally Harry Gregson-Williams and all his music composed for Tony Scott's films, they use the same samples from previous works in the past and fans like them.

So kaka, if you complain about this score, then you will keep complaining about future scores from any composer because everybody does it. John Williams, Harry Gregson-Williams, Steve Jablonsky, Ramin Djawadi or even Hans Zimmer. And fans or non-fans like their work. And if you keep complaining, then stop listening to film scores and start to listen another music genre that sounds different to you.


kaka2011-08-01 15:55:32
"So kaka, if you complain about this score, then you will keep complaining about future scores from any composer because everybody does it."

Nice logic but thats not excuse for unoriginality. Hey if you like this bland, uninspiring pile of HGW staple that's you. I expect much better.

Oh another disappointed score from Harry. Only 2 tracks worth listening to. Whats happening to harry gregson ?? Considering how the other composers of RCP are performing, i feel its high time Harry gregson had some real good scores in his folio.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-08-09 13:21:45
Disappointing it may be, but it's still better than the horrible bland scores Ramin Djawadi and all the other minions at RCP write. This score at least has something of it's own personality, unlike say Clash of the Titans, Iron Man, Ironclad or Transformers - which all sound interchangeable.


Ds2011-08-09 14:02:18
you're right for Clash of the Titans or Iron Man, but Ironclad and Transformers have their own personality!


Booku Marksman2011-08-09 15:37:18
NOt really. Take a listen to Djawadi's Fright Night. Its got more personality in that one minute preview than all of Harry's Score.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-08-09 17:42:44
Well, I must have heard a different preview then, cause the one I heard sounded as generic as everything else Djawadi has composed.


Booku2011-08-09 21:50:16
if you're talking the Varese sample, then you got me...I dont know you be listenin to, bro


Vishagh2011-08-14 07:24:51
As for the Transformer, i have felt that was one of the best scores during that year considering the genre of the movie. You are right abt the minors in RCP trying to imitate the typical style.

Aaron Edwards reply Replies: 0 || 2011-08-08 01:14:52
So, I don't understand why everyone is bashing this score so much. Trust me, I'm the first person to have a go at Gregson Williams. I'm so not a fan. But you know, this score is actually not bad. The acoustic guitar work throughout is really nice, and listening to the more down and emotional stuff, very nicely orchestrated, nice chord choices... seriously I'm really liking it (shock horror, I've never said that about a Gregson Williams score).

zahnmimres reply Replies: 0 || 2011-07-30 12:52:01
Well...it's not as impressive as I have expected it to be yet it's still enjoyable. "Jake Lonergan" "Alien Air Attack" "Ella’s Mission" are my favorite 5-star tracks. If I have to rate it, it will be somewhere between PRINCE OF PERSIA and WOLVERINE.
P.S. For composer's similarity, I think I can hear some PRINCE OF PERSIA in this too :P

Unknown reply Replies: 0 || 2011-07-30 00:56:28
Oh my god is this music boring. NO Western elements, only country elements and too much synthesizer.... no this is the badest score, I've hear in this year.

Is this gonna be on itunes? & when is release date?


Dakota2011-07-26 01:14:53
It should be released on iTunes by midnight. Today is the 25th. It's being released on the 26th, is it not?


Dingoutback2011-07-26 01:55:34
Looks like the physical album is being released on 8/16/11. That could be the release date for the download album as well. We will find out by tomorrow.


kaka2011-07-26 02:52:01
Don't forget Super 8 came out and the website shows the cd isnt shipping until August...so maybe.


Dakota2011-07-26 03:11:51
Damnit, I hate Varese. They release their albums so late. It sucks


Anonymous2011-07-26 06:14:44
guess not :/


kaka2011-07-26 06:28:09
Eh...Maybe next week.


HGW42011-07-27 00:18:16
It was to be released today, but they recently pushed back the date about a week ago...very frustrating. Why they play these games I don't think we will ever know!


Anonymous2011-07-27 00:34:41
so now when does it come out on itunes?


kaka2011-07-27 01:47:48
well...going by that logic, perhaps they intend to release it next tuesday, since it was pushed back a week forward from this tuesday...possible/ssibly


Dakota2011-07-27 03:45:35
Like I said, I hate Varese. F-ing hate them. I wouldn't be surprised if they push it back till August/September. They played this game several times with the season 2 soundtrack for Fringe. 3 that's right, 3 different times they changed the date. January to February to April to May. It's ridiculous.


kaka2011-07-27 05:33:18
Maybe someone should contact them and ask? Super 8 still listed as a release date in August, and it's out...So who knows


Bou2011-07-27 10:56:15
Dakota , instead of "f...ing hating Varese" only for their release dates : as every other company they haven't a total control of what the majors having the rights of the music want to do : you should be happy and praise them to release titles such as those "Cowboys.." and the Powell , the Rabin ...etc
Stupid post of the day!


kaka2011-07-27 13:08:10
lol @ patronizing attitude here. You guys arent gonna fight over this now are you? Score can still come out next week ya know...


Trent Easton Navarro2011-07-27 18:43:15
@ Dakota

Patience friend, patience. Be glad that labels like Varese exist, instead of hating them. They released a lot of classic scores. Probably 1/3 of my soundtrack collection are Varese releases, so they are doing something right.


kaka2011-07-27 19:42:47
movie reviews say the score is hands down one of the best this year, so I guess i'd be as excited as Dakota over there...I'd say give them some credit - they did release Super 8 ahead of cd release schedule, they might do the same thing again with this one....Im crossing my fingers for Itunes.


Dakota2011-07-27 21:54:28
Guys, chill. I understand what your saying about them releasing stuff at all, to which I am very grateful. But the circumstances are different when it comes down to the release of Fringe season 2. 3 different times the release date was changed. 3. Yes it's out now but when you get excited over a release and after the 2nd time you find out it's delayed only for them to delay it yet again, it's frustrating. Someone must understand where I'm coming from. And I'm very much looking forward to this score. John Favreau's last collaboration from RCP was Iron Man, and I think that is a fantastic score despite want some people think of it. I love Harry's music.


kaka2011-07-27 22:07:46
I agree Dakota. I heard it's pretty good...


Dakota2011-07-27 23:18:31
Well thanks, glad someone agrees with me. I hope it's good. I hope what you're saying about it being one of the best of the year is true. I think it could be great. Hopefully some western themes mixed with some totally awesome alien-esque themes. The idea for this movie is genius. I love westerns and I love aliens. I think it will be really good, both the film and the score


kaka2011-07-28 00:11:25
well, based off the official website, which has a sneak of the score, it sounds as if Gregson Williams took a listen to the trevor Rabin's American Outlaws score and said "Screw that. I'm not doing it that way!" and went ahead and did it better.

But anyway, movie reviewers say it's one of the best this year so far. But is it pretty good as in "a Remote Control Productions score", or a "Harry Gregson Williams score"? Don't really know yet. We already know Harry has the tendency to plagiarize himself, which is why I tend to avoid most of his music post Man on Fire (80% of Wolverine was abysmal), but it sounds decent so far and Im pumped to hear his first "Western" score. Fingers crossed for next Tuesday...


Going For Gold2011-07-28 03:13:42
Btw Harry's first western score was for 'Seraphim Falls' back in 2006.


kaka2011-07-28 04:12:23
it is? i couldnt tell.


Noble 2011-07-28 08:19:07

I already checked the credits on the album and there too many missing credits:
- Martin Tillman (cello) (as usual as part Harry Gregson-Williams' team)
- Costa Kotselas (Music Engineer)
- Anthony Lledo (Guitar)
- Toby Chu (Programming)
- Hugh Marsh (violin)
- Meri Gavin (Music Editor or Assistant)
- Malcolm Luker (Score Mixer)
- Richard Whitfield
- Jamie Luker

I think Heitor Pereira is involved too but that's something I'm really not sure. But you can use this information to include them in the credits.

I really hope you guys to use this.


Snake2011-07-26 07:30:47

kaka2011-07-12 00:48:30
Varese is releasing it 7/26....Although I have to admit painfully that Harry's music hasn't really been all that great since his "Man on Fire" days...Since then his music all seems to sound the same (at least to me)

Its available for preorder and probably will be on Itunes soon enough, I guess. But if it sounds like his typical rehashed music I may not bother...


HGW42011-07-14 18:17:53
