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.

Will the soundtrack for the third season be released?


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-07 23:52:39
As Ramin pointed on Facebook, the soundtracks for GOT Season 3 & Pacific Rim are in the works.

GOT should be release this summer (Var&#232;se, probably :)).

Pacific Rim will be released on July the 8th by WaterTower.


Macejko2013-05-08 16:12:46
That's good news, but after 6 episodes I don't think there even is much of new music to release...


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-08 16:15:33
Oh the ending of the episode 6 had quite some great moments ! :)


Macejko2013-05-08 16:42:01
Yeah, that melody was quite nice, but as much as love Ramin's music, I think that particular scene could have been handled better, musically speaking.
What I really liked was the rendition of Theon's theme during the scene of him being chased.
Also I'm not sure what to think about the rendition of Daenerys' theme playing at the end of episode 4. I think I understand what was Ramin going for, but it sounded somehow forced and inappropriate.
And again, I really liked the melody playing during Catelyn's confession about Jon Snow.
Overall, I'm indecisive about Season 3 music so far. It heavily relies on music from last two seasons (using Theon's theme at the execution of Rickard Karstark was a huge let down - it didn't make any sense to use that music there other than it was another execution), and when there is new music, it's usually a rendition of an older theme or it's something not really memorable. And I say this as a person who absolutely adores Ramin's work basically on everything.


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-08 22:19:14
Glad you brought up the Karstark thing, Macejko. Biggest musical facepalm since the Nazgul theme popped up in The Hobbit.


Macejko2013-05-08 22:41:06
Edmund: Yes, but concerning The Hobbit, it is known that the music used in the film itself is different from the music on the soundtrack CD. For example - there is no Nazgul/Mordor theme on the CD. Also, the main theme, which can be heard during almost every action sequence in the movie, is present only twice on the soundtrack. I'm not sure whose decision that was, but there are many differences between those two.
As for GoT, it's not hard to imagine that Ramin would indeed composed something new for that execution scene, but the creators (or the producers, or music supervisor) simply wanted to use the old stuff, just because it worked perfectly in similar scene. But of course, it doesn't make it any less disappointing.
I would love to find out that Ramin indeed composed new music and it was just replaced with the old stuff, but I don't think it's happening.


Macejko2013-05-22 21:29:02
Ramin posted on his Facebook that the release date for the Season 3 soundtrack is June 4th (digital version, physical release to follow).

A really nice interview with Ramin, mostly about his phenomenal work on Game of Thrones.

I really like Game of Thrones but the opnnieg credits are the worst thing, in my opinion. It's not the music: that's great and powerful. It's the visuals that are completely unfit. For one, it's computer graphics that you can't mistake for anything else, even if it's hi-res. And then it speaks of clockwork, mechanisms and machinery, which are the things that are farthest from what this series is about. Perhaps the authors' intention was to depict the scheming, but that is far-fetched and still makes it feel completely out of place.
