hybrid created a very good suite from this movie, also because he left out the more uninteresting action stuff. the whole score is not original, but the themes are great because they transport emotions and excitement. the quiter parts are also very nice. im sure the actionmusic is very functional in the movie, but as a stand alone listening experience it is not very convincing. too much electronics which make too much noise. when the themes kick in, it sounds good, but a better mix of orchestra and electronics would have helped. sadly you won't find a second "Burn around the moon" or "Goodbye/Landing" from Armageddon in this score.Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?
I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.Have to agree because if you haven’t an interest in Lorne’s work then just don’t goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply don’t click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You don’t have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.
Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.
Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! I’m scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????How pathietic that it bothers some ,that some of us are excited about another composers music. Get a life people. Balfe has become a great composer this year so give him a break . If you don’t like it , you can find another forumI agree, I'm shocked no one is talking about how great Ramin Djawadi's score is for The Mountain Between Us. Much better than this new Lorne Balfe score, I'm mean really, this Geostorm score is just a constant reminder to other scores from RCP from the past. Nothing original here. Only the track May Day is memorable.I like it too but I don't understand why this thread is full of slobbering fanboys while nobody is talking about, say, Kingsman 2 which is just as good. I don't want to stop anyone talking about his music but did we really need every day this year for someone to go "oh my god I can't wait for Lorne to release another unreleased cue from Ghost in the Shell"? It doesn't contribute anything meaningful and makes this site look even more like a YouTube comments section than it already does.Your right Edmund ..... how dare we take about any other composer apart from Zimmer or John Powell!  Thankfully your point of view is in the minority. There is obviously a reason why he is one of the busiest composers . Geostorm isn’t original BUT it’s great music and I like it at least

Martin Tillman is scoring a new movie called A bell for Ursli! I'm very glad that he gets to do some composing of his own these days! He is such a great musician! He plays the cello in most of Zimmer's and HGW's scores if you don't know who he is:P

Amazing!!! compliments, as usual, great composition.!

I can't quite place why, but Celebrate the Oscars reminds me of John Williams. Great and uplifting track--and starts out with a classic Zimmerish BRAAAAAAM. :)


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:51:58
Oddly enough I just bought it


Mike2013-09-17 01:52:45
Good stuff, isn't it?


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:54:17
The BRAAAAAM! is awesome


Mike2013-09-17 01:55:26
The main melody resembles the heroic Superman theme from Man of Steel (think the beginning of "Flight").


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:58:04
Huh I'm not hearing that.


MacArthur2013-09-17 01:59:49
and i'm not saying that in a bad way


Mike2013-09-17 02:01:01
Listen to 0:48-1:10 in Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 0:31-1:10 or so in Flight.


Mike2013-09-17 02:01:58
Maybe it's just me.


Mike2013-09-17 02:05:04
Even better idea: listen to that same section of Celebrate the Oscars, then listen to 14:26-15:20 in "Man of Steel (Hans' Original Sketchbook)", and tell me if you notice it there.


MacArthur2013-09-17 02:06:06
Yes now I got you it's a similar chord progression


MacArthur2013-09-17 02:08:36
Different Orchestrations but similar chord progression not exactly the same but similar.


Mike2013-09-17 02:11:24
Both quite good though. I wouldn't have known when this came out to expect something similar for Superman. lol. And speaking of Zimmer superhero music, I find it funny that Zimmer hasn't mentioned his involvement with Spider-Man.


MacArthur2013-09-17 03:07:11
Yeah good point but he also has 4 more movies before that one comes out

So the Oscars have been broadcasted worldwide, yet this music can be only bought by US citizens.

What's the reason? It's not like there will be any development on German TV/Music market that forces them to withhold sales in Germany for any number of weeks or months. There is NO reason. I really enjoyed and appreciated the music, it even caused goosebumps and tears, yet I cannot pay those f*in $5.99 (or even make that Euros) to further enjoy and appreciate it. Legally! At least, with a CD, I could order it on Amazon US and have it shipped over here or something.

THIS is what forces people all over the world into piracy, because we would LOVE to pay for good stuff, but are just kept away from getting it! REALLY SUCKS! Especially having in mind where Hans Zimmer comes from - he has tons of fans in Germany!!!

*** EDITED BY WEBMASTERS : This topic is about the fact this score is only available on the american itunes store, and prevent other country to download it ****
*** Priere de rédiger en anglais la prochaine fois ***
Alors, là! Bon, désolé, j'écris en français. Trop énervé pour réfléchir anglais ce matin!!

Je me pointe sur l'iTunes tranquillement pour acheter la piste faite par Hans. Que se passe-t-il? "Votre compte ne peut acheter des produits sur l'iStore américain".

Et apr&#232;s, on va dire qu'Internet est rempli de pirates...
Bouh!! Honte &#224; eux!

Cela dit, quelle magnifique piste créée par Zimmer. Un peu répétitive mais épique, glorieuse. Tout ce que j'aime de sa musique (qui d'ailleurs est souvent tr&#232;s sombre, plus technique ces derni&#232;res années).

Cela fait plaisir de retrouver un th&#232;me dans la veine de "Backdraft", "Spirit" et un soupçon de "The Holiday" également.

I'm a french speaking too, but I want to avoid 3 *XXXX reply :) I completely agree with you Hale, this is a very refreshing-Zimmer sound, it made me so happy when I heard this track yesterday morning! Just Hope "Dark Knight Rises" will not fall too deep into "Dark Knight" or "Inception" sounds, which for me is a disappointing tendency of Zimmer sound these last years...
