This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now that’s good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

Just rewatched the whole trilogy and damn how the TDKR score SLAPS! Best of the three in my opinion, mostly thanks to the Bane stuff. Which leads me to this: I really whish the Nokia trailer music, "Bane's Theme", Wayne Manor" and "Selina Kyle" get an official release one day... Here's hoping!

OMG, it's been 7 years already! one thing i realized while going back to this score is that Hans hasn't done "dance"/"medley" cues like "imagine the fire" in a while. maybe it's one of those things people were saying they missed?


Der Profl2019-11-03 03:07:56
I love nearly every Hans Zimmer score, but maybe the missing of the "dance"/"medley" tracks (or its appearance) is the reason why I like Xperminents so much.

That track is "Risen From Darkness" off the complete score.

Well, it isn't..


superultramegaa2019-04-24 22:39:34
Well, it is...

I'm listening to the complete score right now, and that's exactly the track you were talking about. Unless you mean the second time Alfred and Bruce do this, in which case that's "Back to Batcave".

I managed to find the clip on youtube. I was asking about the music playing during this scene. Doesnt sound like the second mentioned track either.


KnightLite2019-04-26 14:00:18
SD and superultramega are right. It’s the end of “2m17 For Old Times’ Sake / Applied Sciences” which fades into “2m18 Risen from Darkness”

Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?


Mike2019-02-22 01:50:50
Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff.

Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?

Something I never understood : Hans asked peoples to send their voice for the chant. I was part of this experience but is Hans really used all thoses records finally or it was just a marketing thing ? The fact is Hans recorded choir before asking peoples so I never understood really.

Just read about this on The Nerdist:

"Via Billboard, Stirling and Zimmer’s new take on The Dark Knight Rises‘ main theme has been released as the first track from an upcoming album called “The Classics.” “I have always loved Hans Zimmer’s work,” Stirling told Billboard. “There have been several times I’ve been writing a song and I’ve thought, ‘What would Hans do?’ He has a gift for making things sound magical.”

We can’t argue with that. In the course of his nearly 40-year career, Zimmer has composed the score for over 150 films. For “The Classics,” Zimmer is revisiting some of his most famous themes from The Lion King, Crimson Tide, Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean, Inception, Man of Steel, and Interstellar in collaboration with Stirling and several others. The list of artists contributing to the album includes 2CELLOS, the Piano Guys, Lang Lang, Leona Lewis, Till Broenner, Maxim Vengerov, Amy Dickson, Khatia Buniatishvili, and Roger Sayer.

“The Classics” will be released on Friday, January 13, 2017."

Zimmer got 2Cellos AND The Piano Guys for this? Wow!

Very random question, but why didn't JNH return for the third?


Hybrid Soldier2016-11-19 10:15:37
James explained many times that after he saw Inception he thought Hans & Chris Nolan had really found each other and didn't want to "interfere", that the Bats where really Chris choosing Hans and then Hans asking to bring JNH to the party.

And he thought after TDK he had written all he could for that saga, he had nothing more to say...


Ei182016-11-19 15:31:42
Gotcha. Thanks, Hybrid!


Mike2016-11-19 16:21:41
He gave an interview for Film Music Reporter basically fleshing out what Hybrid just said. Among other things, he said it was Zimmer who really "defined the character" of these scores and it was "his [Zimmer's] conception of the music" that was the really predominant element. He viewed the "Eye for an Eye" cue from TDK (went Dent is threatening Gordon's kid) and his other contributions as the culmination of what he could do for a Batman movie, and didn't really know if he had anything musically left to say.

I do wish he had returned for TDKR, but hey, at least he was amicable about it. And he got an "Extra Special Thanks" from Hans in the booklet. I wonder if the two will ever co-write another score?

did hans really do the chasing the convoy cue on his own?


vced2015-04-08 20:19:36
Arrangement sounds too intricate for a HZ only piece. So probably it was Lorne. Hans stuff is usually simple, he doesn't really write complicated cues himself.


Mike2015-05-27 22:39:22
It's not really that complicated...it's pieces of the Moody Bruce Transfiguration suite interspersed with bits of "Train Fight." ;) Hans could have easily done it himself. But anyway, the credits on this page are incomplete as it is, so we don't know. And it's really all Zimmer's music anyway, in this case, so...We can all just move along, I would say. :P

isildur2014-03-03 11:56:50
Yes Zavadskyy's is very good. But I don't think it's better than the actual score. Did you hear "Moody Bruce Suite" here? It's absolutely incredible.


Aragorn2014-03-03 15:38:25
Both the moody bruce suites (the fast, transfiguration one and the regular one) are awesome, but notice I said it was better than the FINAL score, as in, the score as heard in the film. In the movie they hardly used either of those two suites! :(


NM2014-06-21 20:05:35
Had a listen to his Dark Knight Rises thing. I thought it was alright, listenable, it's easy to arrange something like that in the abstract though.

However no way it's better than the final score in a million years. One can ignore the synthesised instruments and the flat mix but as an arrangement it's just bits of old tunes with very minimal changes. I didn't hear any narrative. If he'd really spiced it up, injected some kick, maybe layered some tunes over each-other I'd have been more impressed. As it stands it's just a remake. As an amateur/semipro, who wouldn't even call themselves particularly good, I could've arranged that in a few hours.

That said, I think it's fair game to do those sorts of stuff to draw attention to yourself, or even just for fun and indeed it intrigued me enough to go check out his own website to hear his own original compositions, but sadly it seemed to be broken.

Mortifer V.2013-09-16 01:07:46
That's a different "All Out War": the one you have is from the complete score, the music which is playing during the beginning of the final battle. This "All Out War" is another bonus track; the first half of it plays after Batman frees the cops trapped underground, until Selina rides off on the Batpod in the next scene. The second half plays when Bruce Wayne is taken with a bag over his head to Lucius Fox. (check out Wikipedia).

The 'recordings' on YouTube are not very good quality BECAUSE you found them on YouTube. You can get a better copy by looking NOT on YouTube. If you want to 'master' it, you could go to school for several years, become a sound engineer, and purchase hundreds or thousands of dollars' worth of high tech audio equipment.

My longest project was or is Die Hard With A Vengeance - meanwhile I spent over eight months to make a film version soundtrack. Sadly I did this with the Magix software. Some day I'll "convert this to Audition :)
