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...

Looks like the sessions are out there! "Thneedville Care Chase" is the film verion of "Thneedville Chase" from the original album. Wonderful score. I hope that someday the complete thing is released (leaked).

The rest of the songs on the Interscope Records album are demos that aren't in the movie.

Interscope Records is also releasing an album of songs from the movie. Almost all of the songs were composed by John Powell, so maybe it merits inclusion on this site.

As for this album, I'm looking forward to seeing what Powell came up with for this film. I definitely think that the source material can lend itself to some good music!


jrej35552012-07-06 00:46:38
Yeah, I also wonder why the Interscope Records isn't on this site.


jrej35552012-07-06 00:48:50
Whoops, I meant to say, "Yeah, I also wonder why the Interscope Records ALBUM isn't on this site."

Another one: Is Powell actually composing Hotel Transylvania? While the movie doesn't look very good, it could be an opportunity for a very fun score!

And what's up with IMDb suddenly adding all these crazy credits to John?? (Like Cloudy 2 and Smurfs 2)

Paul reply Replies: 1 || 2012-05-04 16:27:44
Does anybody know if Powell is actually doing that new Pixar movie entitled "The Good Dinosaur"? It's been on his IMDb page for so long that it could be true...


Blu2012-05-04 18:19:45
IMDb had listed Powell as the composer of the Toy Story short film (Hawaiian Vacation) for some time (way after it's release, in fact) until his name was replaced (fairly recently actually) with Mark Mothersbaugh. So it's probably not the best place to get precise information on upcoming composer projects, especially those with release dates set way in the future.

I'd welcome a Pixar/Powell collaboration, nonetheless.

funeral for a tree uses a tune from another song, what is it? its some sort of irish folk sad song I think.


jrej35552012-04-01 01:21:09
The piano tune is from the song "Let it Grow," which is also written by John Powell for the film. (Plus, I'm definitely no expert on Irish folk music, but I thought "Let it Grow" was supposed to be slightly gospel.)

Bought the soundtrack from iTunes today. It's a pretty interesting, and sometimes strange, melange of instruments and styles, but it still has John Powell written all over it. Some of the piano and female vocals are especially lovely! A very fun and engaging score which conveys a lot of diverse moods! My favorite tracks are "Ted, Audrey and the Trees," "Truffula Valley Fantasy," "Valley Exodus," "Thneedville Chase," and "Funeral for a Tree."

Samples anywhere?


Indiana2012-02-22 15:26:40
On colosseum.de, there are some samples.
Enjoy!


jXe2012-02-22 23:13:04
@#$%!!!!!!!!! after hearing the samples, it will get a lot of playing time! Go John!


Paul2012-02-22 23:39:51
I don't know... I'm a Powell fan and all, but something is not clicking with me, at least from the samples...

I'll wait for the full CD to judge it, though.


powellfan2012-02-23 12:50:49
Does his oldness make him weaker?

The theme for Truffula Valley, which i expected to be great just like Jungle Nool's theme, is simply not great at all , too much like Elfman's.

And then for the song, i know he had tried so much, but here is what happens:
-Thneedville song really reminds me of that song from Just Visiting
-The music for the Once Ler's song is simply awful.

I hope John Powell sticks with animation, his compositions shine with them. Live action scores have too much control and are too narrow for a colorful pallet that John Powell needs.


Prott2012-02-24 11:29:37
Anonymous: That's not always the case - he managed to compose great scores for both animation and live action (The Last Stand, Paycheck). .-)


Anonymous2012-02-24 21:40:45
I am not saying he cant do it, and do it well he does..I am just saying, his best work is expressed in his animated films. My opinion of course. :0)


Prott2012-02-25 00:24:59
Ok... :)

Here, but for the song album...

www.amazon.com/Dr-Seuss-Lorax-Original-Picture/dp/B0079W6LMI /ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1329476058&sr=8-4

Most of the songs are by Powell though.

The mature track titles sound very intriguing and hopefully could contain some great music. I'm really intrigued for Funeral for a Tree, for example...
