Matthew's back, that's for sure !Just saw it as well. Honestly didnít know it was happening lol... but that would be awesome news if Matthew and Henry are co-composing together again.It's pretty good but I think it's the Mounsey cues that sounds the most convincingly Powellish here. Which makes sense given that he's worked on like every single Powell score of the last 10 years lolSince The Lion King, in my opinion, is 99 per cent the same as the original, I simply can't be that enthusiastic about it. I would have preferred a  special 2 CD (physical) edition of Dark Phoenix.Hans's emulation of Powell's sound is more convincing than Mousney and Balfe's.
Anybody who already saw The King's Man trailer today it's really good!!thx hybrid. but why hans? isn't it the decision of fox music?Honestly, Hans is in the middle of big TLK promotion right now, so wait & see...that's true..."Closing in on 700 signatures now, so you'd think that the petition would be gaining at least a little attention."<br><br>Hate to break it to you, but that's laughably naive. No executive is going to even notice a petition with 700 sigs, let alone be spurred to action by it.
does anyone have some infos about the release?Yes, but, Sorry, but i see it ...Looking forward to hearing this when it eventually gets leaked. This was an amazing score.Didn't think there was more unreleased tracks from this score, aside from some suites, considering how much there was on the Deluxe Edition.the real question is why hasnít the complete page been created yet when the complete for chapping and inferno have
I never understood why Balfe never got a joint credit on this?<br>The first Sherlock was on earth of my favorite soundtracks ever. Canít wait to see what they do on this filmSo I'm curious I've seen a lot of these unofficial complete releases on the site and I was wondering why can't there be an official release instead of just these unofficial releases?So many complete scores leaking and I want this one the most.Is it out??? I want this!!!Is it out yet?

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.

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...
