The reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?
Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion king
Best film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>
Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przyby³owicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far on top for me. It feels like the ultimate culmination of Jeremy Soule's work on the the series along with symphony-level quality for the town and exploration music.

Some cue titles not listed on this version:

* Seal the Door/Extra Omeletes [the film dialogue is actually "extra omnes" so the cue title is an in-joke]
* Sinner [possible the second part of "25. Langdon Rescued"]
* E Mia La Piazza [perhaps another in-joke but not sure of it's placement]

mmm...
same drum samples? definitely.
same melody? nope.


NM2015-06-06 20:52:34
Different rhythm surely? lol


bro2015-06-06 23:30:40
It's the same kind of percussion and the same kind of hits, that's it

RealFfingMusic reply Replies: 2 || 2014-09-17 06:30:44
Hybrid's missing "End_Credits" (5:51). But it's the easiest to obtain, and is just a rearranged 160 BPM Suite.


Hybrid Soldier2014-09-17 08:40:41
It's not rearranged, it's just edited by some music editor... In other words, it's redundant with the suite...


bro2014-09-17 16:04:32
Hybrid can you ask Hans if he's going to score Inferno?

Zealotry reply Replies: 1 || 2014-09-15 22:48:50

Where can I get this score version?


RealFfingMusic2014-09-17 06:24:27
There's a secret organisation that tells you where to find these things - complete scores, recordings sessions, etc. Not many people know about it, so don't tell anyone. It's called . . . Google.

Shh!

bro reply Replies: 3 || 2014-08-28 03:53:31
Hybrid -- here we go again! New sequel was announced today!

deadline(dot)com/2014/08/sony-pictures-locks-tom-hanks-ron-h oward-for-april-inferno-start-825270/


Hans being a good friend of Ron Howard, should be the one on this project, and this actually brought a smile to my face!


isildur2014-08-28 18:06:28
I really hope Hans scores this too. Ron and Hans combo always gave absolutely awesome scores.


Lambegue2014-08-28 18:06:35
I love the scores for "Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons", so I'm very happy to learn this too ! (the movies, on the contrary, are very average...)


bro2014-08-28 21:10:19
I honestly don't think ron howard would have announced this without hans saying its okay so it should be pretty much confirmed

Jimmy reply Replies: 4 || 2013-07-09 04:46:01
5:24-7:41 in the Cameriengo suite is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! Wow!


Mike2013-07-09 07:01:31
Indeed it is. God Save Us, which uses the same theme, is also a beautiful cue. And it was done by Zimmer alone, which makes it even better!


Blu2013-07-09 09:29:16
The way the two above-mentioned cues are edited together to form the OST track counterpart is even more impressive!


Mike2013-07-09 21:33:20
And indeed, you can tell this is a beautiful piece, because the Filmtracks guy referred to it as such and gave the score 4 stars.


score_trader2013-09-03 04:01:34
Posted some new stuff from this, you know where.

Hybrid, can you tell me which tracks feature Joshua Bell as solo violin?


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-25 15:28:33
Oh, come on. Just listen to the score, and if you hear a solo violin, that's Joshua Bell. If you really need pointers, start with the cue "503", which is also the end titles. It's basically a remix of "Chevaliers de Sangreal" at a slightly faster pace and with Bell over the top.

Where would Black Tongue A go in this score? It has been some time since I saw the movie.


Bioscope2012-10-07 06:30:44
I think it is when the body of the dead Pope is examined in his casket and his black tongue suggests foul play regarding chronic medicine or something...


Poe2012-10-08 01:08:35
I know where its from, I just wondered where it would go in this tracklist :)


Poe2012-10-10 06:46:32
Does anyone know, please?


Joe2013-02-11 22:49:27
This is in proper film order. Track 22, unless you mean Black Tongue B, which is right after, but is absent here.

I have absolutely no question at all. Thank you for sharing this, Soldier man! *salute*

Cool, thanks!

Wait a minute!!! they are not going to release this? Just asking...


Mr. Fate2012-10-04 16:46:48
No, they are not going to release this, but that doesn't mean you can't find it somewhere on the Internet already. What convenient timing, Hybrid--and with all the credits for each cue!


Hybrid Soldier2012-10-04 16:54:10
Well, I simply saw it online so... time was up !

BTW I put expanded, not complete cause a cue's missing, Black Tongue B (HZ/LB)...


David2012-10-04 18:27:24
You gotta love how every time something is leaked, they make a page for it here.

I wonder if I go and post the tracklist for The Dark Knight Rises, they'll make it?


Mr. Fate2012-10-04 18:58:09
No, David, I am afraid that is not how it works. You can make up as many bullshit track lists as you want, but that is not going to cause the music to materialize.

Even posting legitimate track list does not simply mean the score will be leaked. The lists for the Transformers sequels were posted several weeks before that music turned up. Some scores that have had track lists posted around still have yet to see the light of day.


David2012-10-04 19:09:52
And what makes you think what I'm about to post is actually fake? I'll bet the rest of my fellow elitists can confirm its legitimacy

And Transformers 2 was posted back in April. I remember specifically because it was the week after my Grandmother died

So...let's see what happens when I post it. Give me time to type it up as I don't have it saved anywhere. I can say there are 54 tracks


Agent Smith2012-10-04 19:43:26
my goodness, you have problems. why can't we just enjoy this beauty?! I'm smiling all the day today, as I'm hearing so many new cues from the movie, which are so beautiful and making me enjoy the score now so much.

why argueing all the time, enjoy it man...
