Webmasters<br><br>I have noticed that every now and then a certain album page gets flooded with discussions about another - usually forthcoming - score, for which we naturally don't have a page yet. I was thinking maybe we should have a thread for each score a RCP composer is attached to work on - whether or not any album(s) are planned or released for it - and then, later on, a separate page for the actual albums when those become available. This could make things organized and probably easier to follow. Just a suggestion.Which ones?It can't be any worse than the previous two films. And it does seem to be offering something different to the previous films anyway. The idea seems to be the idea presented in the first film that the future is "one possible future" instead flipped around so that the future is set, but the past is "one possible past". It's an intriguing idea, as are some of the ideas alleged to be what we'll get in the film (I won't spoil those here).<br><br>The big discussion here, though, is the score. I'm hoping for a better presentation of the main theme, there's now the chance to properly reprise the T-1000 motif as well. I'm thinking that the approach should be something like an inbetween of Elfman's score for Salvation and Trond Viggo-Melsen's music for the Salvation video game.Not all the mixing that was present in the film was in the leaked version as several cues had more revisions before they got used in the film, though the leaked version is currently the only place to get two unused alternate pieces of music.Mr. Zimmer,<br><br>To me you are considered one of the best if not the best composers of the modern era.  It would be an honor to see you someday live in concert.  Do you ever come to Cleveland, OH?<br><br>Thanks for the music!
It is represented here as track 69 and serves as an intro to Aboard the QAR.Hanz Zimmer and Staff,<br><br>Please check out Julia Westlin on YouTube she is a great singer but would be amazing with your help! Please check her out!!I will say this: I like this Legacy Collection, but I'm also glad that the bootleg leaks are still available, so I can hear the mixing that was actually in the film.The Zulu lyrics were written by Lebo M (who also arranged the African vocals for the entire Lion King soundtrack and score), who also performed them with a South African choir.<br><br>Lebo also wrote the lyrics for "Nants' Ingonyama" and sings this opening chant before "Circle of Life" begins.I like this score more and more with every listen -- some great action and a beautiful theme with several variations.<br><br>Hybrid:  is that Lisbeth Scott in many of the tracks?  The booklet on iTunes does not list any musician or production credits.
This is a great suite!!!  Fun, fun music.<br><br>Hybrid:  on another note, do you know anything about a soundtrack for Killing Jesus, The Woman In Gold, or A.D.?Well for me itīs just the opposite, itīs when I saw the trailer that I realized how bad it looked like :-pI was extremely turned off by the idea for more Terminator films... Then I saw the trailer. I actually think Genisys has the potential to be really good.  I get the feeling whomever wrote the script actually found an interesting spin on it.It's an Untitled CueWhat is the name of the track 2m18A?
Anybody knows if it will be released in the next days? I read that it will be released on 3 april.  Zmmer just composed the main theme or the complete score?I think that this is the best song I've ever heard. I write music, but this, is just something I can't beat. You're the best Sir.Nevermind. I thought we were talking about Tim Johnson (Home)@Ds, What Marvel movie are you referring to?Just noticed that certain parts of "Flying Montage" (the electric guitar mostly) are also used in "Within The Web".

The last part of "Charlie loses his head" seems to be the source of Dark Knight, it is very similar with the theme from TDKR

with all the respect in the world for mr zimmer and i think in modern times he is as GOOD as IT WAS the legendary ENNIO MORRICONE do have a question on the soundtrack on BLACK rain..i've searched all his soundtrack who are brilliant but i've missed one..when SUGAI enters the club and before that minute 54 and 15-20-30 seconds what's the name of the song..it;s driving me mad searching for it..i have the original dvd and all sound track on my computer all except that!!

Trent Easton Navarro reply Replies: 0 || 2012-12-27 18:18:23
La La Land has announced that they'll release another Zimmer score next year! Really curious which one it'll be.

Days of Thunder would be very cool. And I'm still hoping for an expanded The Peacemaker.

This is ultimately one of the best film scores Hans have ever composed in 1990. Even for an expanded score with additional music from the late Shirley Walker and recording artists from UB40, Iggy Pop, etc., this is truly a must have and a part of the RCP Collector's library.


Cloud2012-10-01 13:34:31
To me this is one of the best scores he has ever composed, period. It's easily among my top 3 favorites of his. Then again, when I listen to Hans, I listen almost always to his late 80s/90s/early 00s stuff.


Dawn2012-10-02 13:11:20
@Cloud I feel the same. Late 80's, all 90's and early 2000's... what a great era for film music lovers !


Aggelos2012-10-03 11:49:42
You're right folks. Late '80s and '90s contain the most fantastic stuff from the RCP team. From early 2000, it would seem that the decline-twilight of the memorable theme/cues begins....

Sanguinely, LLL and Intrada will bring to light more of them (remember Intrada's White Fang).


Cloud2012-10-03 13:41:15
I included the early 00s solely because of scores like Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Hannibal, Spirit or The Last Samurai. These are all great. To me, the last big score of that era was King Arthur. After that, things started to change considerably.

That being said, I really hope LLL or someone decides to release Bird on a Wire and Days of Thunder.


Trent Easton Navarro2012-10-03 16:16:15
Yeah, King Arthur was probably Zimmer's last great score.

And I second Bird on Wire and Days of Thunder! But great scores that need to be released officially


Ds2012-10-03 22:52:58
I think you people are forgetting Pirates 2 & 3! Especially the 3rd!


Prott2012-10-03 23:15:57
... and The Da Vinci Code (at least).


Dawn2012-10-04 01:17:40
Yes, Da Vinci Code and Pirates 3, or even Inception were really good in their own right... but they were exceptions in this "new" era.

I don't know if it is film music that changed, or if it was just me, but from 1995 to 2003, I was excited every 3 months with something new. Then it started to decrease.
Yes I liked King Arthur, but it was not half as good as Gladiator or Black Hawk Down were.
Batman Begins, though it is now iconic and an important evolution in film music, still remains for me a little bit uninteresting and weak.

Maybe I started to get older and lost some natural childood enthusiasm ? Or was there a real decline in quality or inspiration ?... don't know.


fabien2012-11-01 18:13:53
some amazing unreleased part of Nick and Masa theme now released !!!!

bongo reply Replies: 2 || 2012-09-30 18:29:22
Just wondering does this release contain more unreleased music than the complete score bootleg release?


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-30 19:37:25
It does. ;)


bongo2012-09-30 22:45:54
Thankee, ordering right now!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 15 || 2012-06-30 20:55:15
Just announced by LLL, to be released later !!! :D

You beat me to it! Wahey!!!


Adrian2012-07-01 01:33:35
A big like, great news :-)


Ravi2012-07-01 06:27:49
Indeed, great news! So cool to see all these awesome HZ scores being released - Broken Arrow, White Fang and now this. Here's hoping that Lion King and Gladiator aren't too far. :-)


Cloud2012-07-01 17:02:01
Oh, boy. LLL saves the day once again. Black Rain has to be the quintessential Zimmer action score and my absolute alltime favorite of his. This is as good as ordered.


Mikel SiW (a fan from Spain)2012-07-02 13:31:32
Another miracle from La-La Land!!


Pawel Stroinski2012-07-30 01:15:23
The score will be probably released this August. Lala already "announced" that it will be their next release.


Aggelos2012-09-17 14:25:34
No August dudes. End of Sep or early October.
It's gonna be the wickedness!!! LLL needs to tackle more Media Ventures stuff! What on earth have they been doin'?.....

I'm losing my composure and patience!


Aggelos2012-09-18 09:16:17
The shit will be out September 25.
If not, then October 9.


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-18 16:44:12
Coming next week, the 25th !!!! :D


Aggelos2012-09-18 17:32:38
You don't say, bro! Count me in! It's about time to get another fine Zimmer release by triple L. Stop your grinning and drop your linen!

I was hoping some signed copies but the out hopes were trashed by "No signed Black Rain copies. Altough the project was produced with the blessing of Mr. Zimmer."


Trent Easton Navarro2012-09-18 20:00:03
Definitely looking forward to this one! One of Zimmer's finest action scores!


Aggelos2012-09-21 14:59:35
Guys, this score was conducted by Shirley. But what exactly did Shirley conduct in this one?
Was she conducting Hans' fingers whilst he performing and sequencing the music on his synthesizer?


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-21 19:23:42
There's an orchestra in that score.

Not a big one, but there is... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2012-09-25 22:23:36
And here we go ! :)


Aggelos2012-09-26 19:06:02
Yes bro! Freaking ordered without second thoughts!!
