It would be great to see someone the people on this site that mock composers having a go at this compatition !!!I am enjoying this soundtrack a lot. Lots of very nice Middle-Eastern instruments and tone colours throughout. Only things that are holding it back from being as good as Uncharted 4 are memorable themes and no real orchestra (just orchestral samples). I understand that not being able to have the score recorded by a real orchestra is not Henry's fault, but it does detract from the overall sound and impact of the music (in a few areas). However, Henry does do a good job using other ambient sounds and pulses to cover up noticeably synthetic parts, which I think works well and is not too much of a distraction. A solid 3.5 / 5 from me.Yes, I knew it! The night isn't full of terrors after all.The Lord of Light is watching over us!Good news guy! It releases this Friday Ramin confirmed on twitter.<br><br>https://twitter.com/Djawadi_Ramin/status/900139465129172992
Does anyone know where you could find the variations on Duck Shoot, specifically the one during the King's death in Episode 2?Wanna go see Hans and/or Lorne ? Here's your chance !This score is growing on me more and more every day :DWill there be CD by La-La Land Records as well?Lol I avoid spoilers at all cost! I checked the ost after the finale last year!
Spoilers ? haha I stopped avoiding them. With al the leaking and people on social media who seem to forget that others are watching it a little bit later than airing time it's impossible to avoid them. They did release it last year in front of the final episode. With Light of the Seven as a big surprise.I'm not sure they'll release the album this Friday already because I guess they're very cautious about spoilers, but it would be stupid if they didn't release it digitally before the 29th of september.<br><br>I'm sure that new theme will be on the OST at least once and I want the creepy Jon Snow variation in episode 6. And the battle version of Light of the Seven when Drogon goes for Bronn in episode 4!That's right, I forgot about the Jon & Daenerys theme. It's beautiful.<br>Hope this will be in thereAny chance the soundtrack will be released this friday ? ;)Where can I get this soundtrack? I need it badly.
Also (to answer the question at the start of this thread) the cover art uses a portion of an unofficial poster by Ruiz BurgosI suspect that the music from the Clint Mansell sessions that ended up getting used in the soundtrack is too intertwined with the final score to separate the cues between the two composers' teams. Check out "The Leap" from Kevin Kiner (it's on his website and also on Youtube), a version of that is in the final score.<br><br>In other words, I don't think there are easily separable "Clint Mansell cues" and "Lorne Balfe cues". There is just one final score.There is a major and beautiful new theme this season! The Jon Snow Denaerys Theme!! It was heard in it's greatest version yet in the end of episode 6!<br>He means he works on many scores these days... :P4 Cues  are not everywhere...lol

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...
