Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!
Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lol

Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me too
Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.

Can't seem to recall if Hans was ever considered for this project.... Mancina rocked it of course, but I just wonder what Hans would've done....Maybe something like Drop Zone?

P.S. A little sidenote: I recently saw STONE COLD again and honestly Sylvester Levay's score for the movie has to be one of the best "manly", "hardcore" action scores. IMO. So freakin' badass! I can't believe there's no official release. Or even a bootleg.... Levay deserves more recognition overall. Stone Cold in particular is an action score that we simply don't hear nowadays. And I really miss that sound. I'm sure most of you have seen the movie so you know what I'm talking about. If not, go see it ASAP. You gonna have a blast :)

Finally !


Aggelos2012-02-29 15:41:42
YA!!!!!!!!!! Freaking ordered!!!!

Go LA LA LAND!! Bring us more Media Ventures/ Remote Control Productions masterpieces!!



Anonymous2012-02-29 23:10:30
This is amazing!!!! Now we need the same treatment to Twister!


Aggelos2012-03-02 10:46:02
Amend dude! Send e-mails to LaLaLand, "annoy" them so as to get mobilized and release Expanded Twister.


Anonymous2012-03-03 04:33:51
I would not bother them to much about Twister. The is a legal issue over the score they have no control over. Twister has been on their list for years but can't get around the issue.

If you want to annoy someone, annoy Warner Bros.


IamBoDigidy2012-03-04 16:22:31
Is anyone having issue with iTunes importing this La La Land CD? I cant get it to burn.


Aggelos2012-03-08 14:43:36
Man, what's wrong with Warner Bros??? Why won't they just hand over the Twister rights to La La Land?....


Kusi2012-03-08 16:24:48
I think it has to do with the Van Halen-Track in it. And also with the cover of Human Being within the "Leaving Wakita"-scene. Which is of course a great track :D


Aggelos2012-03-14 12:14:13
Yay received my disc today!!! Yay Mancina and LaLaLand!!!!


Now please, I pray to all the celestial-divine entities out there to facilitate/aid/help/intervene (in) the release of Expanded Twister by LaLaLand!!!!!

This Speed Expanded limited edition is better than the original Fox Film Scores version. La-La Land Records have done an outstanding job on that soundtrack LP!


Kusi2012-03-08 21:45:31
You're right! :) I'm currently listening to this score. it's something special for me because it was one of the first scores which I boughtt.
