man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Donít even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.
I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06.

Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.

"The College Thing (Demo)" (#6 on Disc 3) is IDENTICAL to "NEST" off of the OST. Oh, and S/ash was right about his conclusion about all the suites just being off of the OST, they are.

Hybrid Soldier2012-07-13 08:33:26
It's not, Mr. Charles...

Don't know what people did, but the original thing is not...

Per2012-07-13 12:43:53
Maybe someone just compared the timings of the suite/"bonus" tracks with the OST tracks, and thought they were the same, and so they added them to their own version... ?!

Mr. Charles2012-07-24 00:41:55
Then why are they identical in length? They're the same exact piece I have...

We all know that Steve have composed on most tracks. I just had a very curious thought. Since Hans Zimmer, Lorne Balfe, Gire & Sponsler, etc. had made some additional music. Does anybody know who compsed some of the tracks on this score? If not, please disregard that message.

Mr. Fate2012-07-06 04:41:00
I see that it is arranged slightly differently, though, no? Where I am looking to download this score, I do not see a long list that is solely alternates. Are the alternates missing, or are they simply in-line with the rest of the main score? Never mind, any way, it is still a great blessing to have this score.

Hell, it's great to have the whole trilogy! Thanks be to the elitists who wish to break the elitist image of "Look what I have and you don't!"

T-Mann0362012-07-06 07:23:06
Yes, Mr. Fate. It is real... and it's about freaking time!!!!

"3m46 Model Airplanes" is definitely lifted from "Multiple Jacks" from At World's End. Starting at 1:28

Mr. Fate2012-07-07 03:36:43
Haha, it sure is S/ash; there's no doubt about that!

So does anybody actually know the whereabouts of all the alternates, suites, and demo. Perhaps most of them are on the recent leak but in different places.

//////2012-07-07 03:54:24
I've come to the conclusion that the suites are what's on the OST. Maybe not ALL of them, but some are. For example:

"Prime Suite" is obviously "Prime", track 1
"The Symbols Suite" is obviously "Einstein's Wrong", track 2
"The Fallen Suite" is obviously "The Fallen", track 5
"Matrix of Leadership Suite" is obviously "Matrix of Leadership", track 12
"Decepticon Invasion Suite" is obviously "Heed Our Warning", track 7

unfortunately, i can't find this complete score anywhere? is it real or fake? Is it really exists?

Mr. Fate2012-05-14 21:37:54
It is most certainly real but, alas, it is not yet available to the public. And no amount of Googling and searching the Deep Internet will reveal it to you.

ok this is awesome. Now, can you leak the first transformers complete score. Only we have many several expanded / fan editions.

Mr. Fate2012-04-13 00:58:45
Sir, we have the complete score for the first Transformers in multiple forms. The music that is still missing is either film edits of existing tracks, which likely doesn't exist outside of the final draft of the film, and a few pieces of underscore that could have been either written in at the last minute and therefore also only exist in the final draft or temp tracks that could have come from some other source (that are locked up tight).

Anyway you look at it, I highly doubt we will be getting much more music in the way of Transformers 1. And people can't just leak scores at will.

Damn, I guess it's not that other people are getting dumber. It's more like I'm getting smarter, and I just have to keep explaining the same things over and over again as newbies come in.

Anonymous2012-04-13 21:19:01
well mr. fate you say this. but there is some unrealeased music, example "the boogey landing", before the soccent attack, when the helicopter is landing. another example, "...what wolud jesus do" when sam's teacher give him an "A", anyway call them undescore, few pieces, but the complete score (only the film version or the recording sessions) is the complete music like this. So, there are only expanded scores.

Mr. Fate2012-04-13 23:01:13
Okay, but we have both of those tracks. If I'm not mistaken, the cue before "Soccent Attack" is just an edited version of "Tense Action (Demo)", also known as "Tensation". This track appeared on the 72-track complete score that appeared two or so years ago (the one that had a couple of unused tracks and supposed demos). The track you referred to as "What would Jesus do" is just six seconds out of "Cybertron" (which version of "Cybertron"--I could not say off the top of my head).

Just recently, the "recording sessions" for Transformers 1 *were* posted on the internet. And guess what? The missing tracks--the film versions and "underscore" that were absent prior to its release? They were not included there. Do you know why? It's for the reasons I already explained above.

There's no point in arguing, because you're trying to argue that a true fact is false...It's not; it is true.

But if you wish to continue listing more examples of "missing music", I can continue to say that we do actually have (most of) it.

Anonymous2012-04-14 00:38:26
and the famous faked track "qatar", the film versions of Optimus, Bumblebee, The Opening credits (film version), and a lot of more Mr. Fate

Mr. Charles2012-04-14 04:28:55
Check the internet, they're available. I'm backing Mr. Fate on this one.

Although I am a little lost on how the "what would Jesus do?" comes from "Cybertron", but I trust Mr. Fate's judgement, as he's usually right

*** EDITED ***

Mr. Fate2012-04-14 04:40:18
Alright, I'll give you "Qatar"--if that's what you're trying to get at. ("The famous faked track 'Qatar'" is not a sentence.) That one is one of the missing pieces. The film versions of Optimus, Bumblebee, and Autobots are all that--simply film versions. Essentially we have them--just in the movie, bits and pieces were rearranged or had instruments taken out of them.

@Mr. Charles: In reference to the "What would Jesus do" cue: is it not chronologically after "Crazy Grandfather" but before "Angry Camaro"? By my documentation, it's just a little, short six-second clip that is a portion of "Cybertron".

I don't know how it can be so difficult to understand that those pieces likely don't exist outside of the film's audio. You can demand it all you want or have an unlimited amount of wishful thinking, but likely the best you'll be able to do is use a DVD audio extractor, and listen to the "missing music" with SFX and such.

That's not to say that I would like to be proven wrong one day, but I just don't think that's ever going to happen, given the circumstances.

Mr. Charles2012-04-14 04:58:11
Maybe Transformers will just be one of those notorious scores that will never see its full release. Like Judgement Day...

Per2012-04-14 12:05:15
"Just recently, the "recording sessions" for Transformers 1 *were* posted on the internet. And guess what? The missing tracks--the film versions and "underscore" that were absent prior to its release? They were not included there. Do you know why?"

Because the original source(s) of this "recording sessions" did not have them included !? ...doesn't have to be more complicated than that.

(To comment on the use of the phrase (or what you wanna call it) "recording sessions"; Usually the music you have on these unofficial versions are the same (recordings) as you hear on the OST (or in the film for that matter), right ? ... and when it's the same music, the same recordings, doesn't that make the music on the OST etc. a "recording sessions" as well ?)

Mr. Fate2012-04-14 20:10:22
Thanks for a bit of clarification to both Per, and Mr. Charles. Although I still can't quite figure out what you're getting at, Per. At first, it sounds like you're in agreement with me, but midway through your post, it suddenly looks like you're implying that I'm an idiot.

You said the same things I said, but to maximize the effectiveness of your post, you should have directed your response at Anonymous instead of me. Otherwise it appeared you were taking my question and then answering it with my answer and calling me dumb for not knowing the answer...which I've already given. You left off the last sentence of the paragraph that you quoted from me, which would have given you my answer.

As for your note in parentheses: you seem to have confused quantity and quality, Per. I've never known an OST for a movie to have near the amount of content as what can be found in that same movie's recording sessions. Case in point: Transformers. Also, the tracks that appear on both the OST and the recording sessions usually differ in quality, mastering and sometimes even instrument arrangement.

Mr. Charles2012-04-14 22:21:25
Well, I do believe The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's OST had nearly the movie's length of score. The tracks may have been rearranged, but still. I think that is the only exception to a full film score being released on disc as an OST

Anonymous2012-04-15 01:26:09
"I think that is the only exception to a full film score being released on disc as an OST"

That's not true, there has been a good few score CDs that have included full scores!!

Mr. Charles2012-04-15 02:26:45
I said *I THINK*

I mean a commercially-released, brand new OST. Right when the film opens. Not 5-15 years later. Roughly 3 hrs of music came on the OST for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. That was a brand new release.

theeaglesfan0052012-04-15 04:43:46
the reason The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was released in full.. is because Trent Reznor & Atticuss Ross are beast like that lol

Mr. Charles2012-04-15 05:14:06
They are not "beast". I don't even consider the Academy Award Winners, yet unfortunately they are! But whatever, it is what it is!

Per2012-04-20 20:26:26
My point being that the term "recording sessions" is so over-used, that it has lost all meaning. People use it about pretty much anything nowadays it seems...

How I understand it, or if I use that term, it is in those cases where you have a recording of something before it's being mixed, i.e. string section only, brass section only, or the "rough" orchestra before it's being mixed down and together with solo instruments, choir etc.

I understand it's being used (or it was before anyway) when you have several alternate takes/mixes of many/all cues. And/or perhaps when you have (presumeably) everything recorded for it, including alternates/unused stuff etc. But since hardly any, if any version at all, does include everything made for it, there's not really much that can be referred to as being a "recording sessions"...

Mr. Fate2012-04-20 23:44:08
Yeah...Unfortunately, you're not quite on target there, Per. The recording sessions for a film's score don't have to come in a completely 100% complete form to be considered "recording sessions." Just look at the recording sessions for the first Chronicles of Narnia film--or, hell, Transformers 1. They are far from being complete, and yet they are labeled as "recording sessions". There is an immense difference between "recording sessions" and "COMPLETE recording sessions." Some of these releases labeled as "recording sessions" may only feature works by one or two of the composers who were involved in creating the score--sure they are the recording sessions of *those* composers, but they are by no means the COMPLETE recording sessions.

Also take notice to the fact that this page is for the RotF "Complete Score"...You can attempt to create qualifiers that can be applied to all classifications of scores, but you won't succeed. And I'm not even saying that I would be able to, either. Almost all kinds of releases for scores of any films are all their own unique cases.

Take these words from a guy who knows some stuff, and also from a guy who has been told that same sort of statement--the first paragraph--multiple times from another guy who knows some more stuff.

Dawn2012-04-21 01:50:33
Per is right... Recording Sessions means "all the music recorded for the movie". "Complete Recording Sessions" or other terms doesn't mean anything more.

Let's sum up :

1. OST (Original Sound Track) or Official Release. Music that is commercially available.

2. Promo Score. Music that isn't commercially available, but pressed by the composer as a showcase of his work. FYC (For Your Consideration) Promo means it was created for the Oscar members.

3. Showreel. Music that isn't commercially available. A mix of several cues from different movie scores, pressed by the composer as a showcase of his work.

4. Expanded Score (or Extended Score). Can be either commercially available or a bootleg. More music available than the OST. Some Expanded Scores have been labeled "Complete Scores" in the past (mostly because they contained over 90% of the music heard in the movie, and were missing only minor cues).

5. Complete Score / Recording Sessions. Can be either commercially available or bootlegs. They are both basically the same thing. Complete Score contains *at least* all the music heard in the movie, Recording Sessions contain ALL the music that was recorded for the movie (all film cues, demos, alternate cues, alternate mixes, theme suites...).

Complete Scores & Recording Sessions are sometimes mislabeled because they are nearly the same thing ("all the music"). "Complete Recording Sessions" or "Deluxe Recording Sessions", "Definitive Complete Recording Sessions" or "Extreme Definitive Complete Recording Session Deluxe" are also the same thing. Don't be too picky ! ;)

Per2012-04-21 09:54:18
"Yeah...Unfortunately, you're not quite on target there, Per. The recording sessions for a film's score don't have to come in a completely 100% complete form to be considered "recording sessions.""

I never said so either...

Anonymous2012-04-21 20:06:01
RECORDING SESSIONS - they are not necessarily complete, but a collection of "raw" music from the movie. This means they feature used tracks, unedited, unmixed, unused and alternate tracks, all together. For example, a cue that plays as one piece in the movie might have been composed of two separate cues, part A and B. Example - Batman Begins' Train Fight. It was recorded as two cues, but with the full intention to mix it into one in the movie. A scoring sessions will have that cue -- as we do -- in its two original A+B mixes. So even though the 3CD Batman Begins is not complete, you can call it 'recording sessions' or 'expanded score'. Both are right.

The Transformers score that was posted not so long ago IS recording sessions. Its raw, unedited music, with a load of unused tracks, demos, alternate mixes and rough cuts - and more importantly, that's the title on the Warm Butter DVD. It doesnt matter if its complete, Mr. Fate is right. IT IS RECORDING SESSIONS FROM THE MOVIE - in other words, a collection of individual sessions of recordings from the score.

Per2012-04-21 20:47:21
But it's not. The Warm Butter DVD has the finished, final mixed, completed cues . Just as you hear on the OST, or in the film. It might be different mixes, but it's still final mixes. It's not the raw, unedited (as in not put together and mixed etc) recorded stuff. Then you would have each session separately, brass only, strings only, etc.

Besides, this versions that was "posted" not long ago, is, like every version before, still a combination with the OST. Naturally, since the Warm Butter disc (unfortunately) did not have all of the score, including much of the stuff that was on the OST (Which in itself have a lot of theme suites, and this is how Jablonsky does it, he makes both cues for the film, as well as theme suites, so more than likely the versions of the cues as made for use in the film, does exist (outside of the film)...

Sessions have film mixes on, as well as unused, suites, alternates, etc. The Warm Butter DVD is recording sessions from the movie. It may not be complete, but its recording sessions. Just like Eraser, Blade and many other sessions that have leaked. Period.

"... and Armageddon, Broken Arrow, Catwoman, The Chronicles Of Narnia 1/2, Equilibrium, Face/Off, Kingdom Of Heaven, The Peacemaker, Pearl Harbor, Poseidon, The Rock, Solomon Kane, The Time Machine etc"

Um... most of those are not recording sessions. They are either expanded or complete scores. Naria 1 and KOH are the only one that comes close to the term, especially the latter. Do you research, Per.

Mr. Fate2012-04-22 01:02:11
I think the real problem here is that Per is one of those people who maybe doesn't think about what he is typing and he doesn't read his posts through once or twice before he hits submit. Throughout his posts, I'm seeing a recurring pattern: Per says something, someone corrects what he said, and then he comes back and says that he never said that thing in the first place (and most of the time he did say it, since it is quotable).

And honestly--not to stoop to trolling, calling people names, or getting pissy--but to me, Per's posts are kinda hard to read. Before I made that post on April 20, I read and reread his post over and over again to try and make sure that I was interpreting his words right. Clearly I was not...or was I?

@Per: it sounds like you never figured out that the recording sessions for Transformers 1 *did* in fact originate from the Warm Butter DVD. When you hear the recording sessions, and you view screenshots of menus on the DVD, both have the same origin. And you wanna know why so much of the OST is featured on the Warm Butter DVD? Because--guess what--the OST has origins in the recording sessions as well! It was not included as space filler. If you took any notice, you'd see/hear that the recording sessions versions of the OST tracks are mastered entirely differently.

I thank you, Anonymous person, for backing me up here!

Per2012-04-22 02:10:23
OK, I see I might have written that a couple of posts back. My bad.

This is not to start (continue ?) any argument/discussion, but just a simple question... what does for instance Kingdom Of Heaven have, to be considered a "recording sessions" over for instance King Arthur or Armageddon (to use a couple of my top favorites as examples :)), which then perhaps are not considered "recording sessions" (?), other than them not having so many alternates/unused versions as KOH have ?

If it's just that KOH have several alternates of many/all cues that makes it a 'rec sess', then we are agreeing with eachother.

As for my writing... I guess some of what I write can be hard to interpret. I do kind of write in 'riddles' (in question-form), and/or in sarcasm-form. Or something like that :)

I don't think there's much of a secret that, oh let's see, Jablonsky himself have it (1), most likely also some of the composers who did additional music, like Lorne Balfe (2), Gire/Sponsler (3, if you count them as one) (then you already have 3 people !), and various other people working on the creation of the score, such as music editor(s), music engineer(s), (orchestrator(s)), etc etc... and not to mention several, or tens, if not hundreds, of other people not in the industry who has it by now.

Mr. Fate2012-04-19 21:29:12
How do I know if it is boring or not? I'm afraid I can't answer that question very directly and precisely, considering "boring" is a matter of opinion. I doesn't matter whether I have this or not, and it also doesn't matter whether you have it or not, TROLL.

Calling something "boring" is an opinion, and it is your right to hold that opinion. Whether anybody possesses "the real deal" or not, there are still other ways of hearing more of the score than what was just included on the OST. And you want to know my opinion? I think this score is far from boring, and although I feel like they made decent choices in what to include on the OST, there are still a lot of cues and minor themes that are absent from it.

Several composers have given us enough tracks to nearly double the size of the OST (at least in track count, but maybe not length), and for that I am grateful. Beyond that, I might say there are only 5 or 6 more cues that I wish I could listen to in a clean form. Disc 3 of this set has some dazzling alternates that I wouldn't mind hearing, but really some stretches of the score, to me were generic...and, I suppose, a tad bit boring.

Overall, though, I would not call the score boring as a whole. Oh, and btw, with a line like "Don't you call elitists the ones who have this kind of stuff?", you are clearly nothing but a troll. People like you--I don't understand your existence. Your sole purpose here is to come and post things that will make other people angry...? What's the point?

Mr. Fate2012-04-16 00:32:02
What, exactly, is a bootleg in your mind (either of the two posters above me)? In your own words, define what makes a score be classified as a bootleg score. To me, that's always meant a score that was acquired through likely shady transactions of which the quality and possibly even quantity are uncertain, and there is a probability that some tracks may contain sound effects.

As far as I can tell, this simple track list for which the music has not yet been released does not fit any of those aspects.

Clay2012-04-16 12:05:23
"Bootleg" is a ratity item that has never been made commercially available, and that you can only find through "black market", or knowing somebody who is lucky enough to have it.

That also means you'd better not talk about it in a public place - as it is somewhat a rare/secret item. Revenge of the Fallen Complete Score is a rare item that isn't commercially available. I'd like it to remain secret, so I'm asking the people at to remove this page asap !

The "elite" (as some people are saying) are those lucky persons who have rare items and decided (/were told) not to share the bootleg item. I hope you understand.

in this context only, bootleg is music that is --not-- licensed for commercial release. it is one that only a few elitists seemingly have access to, and it is used for no other purpose than teasing (or sometimes making a fool out of) ordinary people, who themselves are universally making the mistake of thinking record labels have taken out from the albums everything that's good about the score.

I call shenanigans as well. But sometimes when a list gets posted here and then removed, it's a sign that it will be showing up somewhere shortly. Isn't that what happened with the Pirates 4 demos? The only weird part is that that page got removed and even after the demos surfaced, the page did not return.

This is just the track list that came from some Wikipedia page that's been around for several months. A track list doesn't mean anything, although it does dazzle me with all its alternates.

Mr. Charles2012-04-11 16:36:08
I think that this WILL surface. Someone posted this list along with the art, did they not? This happened last year with Batman Begins & TDK. And around this time, too. It's bound to happen again. Maybe Hybrid Soldier will pop in and tell us what's going on? After all, he's the one who adds these!

But time will tell. I have seen the tracklist for the first 2 discs, not the third disc full of suites and alternates. Although the first couple of alternates off disc 3 are off the OST

Mr. Fate2012-04-11 21:12:10
And what creative album art it is! I'm being sarcastic as the art is not original or unique to this specific set of music at all.

I have this album cover attached to someone's rip of Magic Box Music's RotF tracks. Then again, the cover we got for that temporary PotC4 demos page used like a cropped version of a movie poster with Syrena inserted into one of the corners. But I digress/reminisce.

So, disc 3 is new to you? The track list matches the one seen here: h t tp:// ing_Session_Cue_Sheet, except that, like you pointed out Mr. Charles, they've added in the suites from the OST (ahem! space filler!). But who would take the time to strip all the titles of their slate numbers? That has got to be some tedious work!

While I'm not going to assume that Hybrid Soldier is the one responsible for posting this list, I do hope he can show up and shed some light on the reasoning behind creating this page. I haven't seen him on here for quite some time, though. I don't think I've seen him since some foreigner,--with poorly translated English--tried to impersonate him. But, again, I digress.

Mr. Charles2012-04-11 21:34:13
And that is exactly what I want, Mr. Fate. To know the reasoning behind posting this, it's only going to cause trouble with everyone asking where to download it and if it's real and what not!

I did recognize the album cover as being from Magic Box Music's additional cues set, but it is slightly different! So you say over on the wiki page for this, the slate numbers are included?!

Mr. Fate2012-04-11 22:32:07
I'm not going to answer that question directly, Mr. Charles. You don't have to take my word for it; just go to the link I posted. There *is* a hyperlink in with my block of text. Or, if it is too difficult to find it, just use Google to search for the Wiki page.

I'll bet this page will be deleted within the next few days, eh? And then we will be left with no place to discuss it all--except, I suppose, the RotF OST's page. But, where is Hybrid?

You guys do know that the real Hybrid Soldier probably doesn't post here anymore ever since that one time that he said ONCE that a track list was old news to him. And ever since then, people mock him and impersonate him and scoff at what he said that ONE TIME. Anybody can type in any username here, and likely someone who was around for that incident has just come here and typed "That's old news for me."

We get impersonators around here, and that will guarantee we'll never get any helpful answers. And even if that was the real Hybrid posting that, I have to say: I'm on his side. This track list is old news to me as well. I've known about it since February. How do we even know that Hybrid possesses the music? Does it really even f*cking matter?

But I doubt it was really him. Hybrid uses proper capitalization, grammar, and punctuation, and I highly doubt he would use phrases like "informations" (which isn't a real word) and "so old news for me".
