This is an RCP website, those scores aren't by RCP composers...Power anthems ???? Obviously you haven’t watched the movie.They would not fit in this movie.<br><br>Balfe’s score is really cool and not expected.Already listened to it 4 times!I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.
What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductorBecause Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?
I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lolAnother awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.
What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.

Does anyone have the chronological order of the complete score that Lorne posted on his site??



AC32018-10-21 06:30:43
was anyone ever able to put the OST and the unreleased tracks together in chronological order?


Knight2018-10-21 19:46:37
Chronological order is near impossible for music in an open world game.

I love this game.

The Black Flag soundtrack is out there. I know it's not really RCP related, but just thought I'd put it out there. And yes, Brian Tyler does a far better job at it than Lorne Balfe did, in my opinion, though I like both.


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-22 08:51:00
I wonder how many RCP people ghostwrote it without credit... :P


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-22 11:07:28
I was actually surprised to find myself quite bored by it, and I actually prefer Balfe's score. If you asked me whether I'd take Balfe or Tyler I'd pick the latter most days of the week, but in this case it's the other way around. So yeah, maybe there really was some ghostwriting going on...

Will Lorne scoring Assassin's Creed 4 too? :)


T-Mann0362013-03-06 04:34:45
I have a gut feeling that Lorne will be composing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.


DIMITRIS KROMMIDAS2013-03-06 14:14:33
That would be great!!! I wish for Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe!!


cody2013-03-07 00:21:20
They should bring back Jesper Kyd :(

Too bad that Jesper have turned it down and not compose any music from the AC franchise.

I bought the album yesterday! it's totally worth it...on Amazon :PPP Anyway, I love the main theme and the fact that Lorne reprises "Labored and Lost" as a theme for the forerunners. Good job Mr Balfe :)

P.S.: As all as I heard Jesper Kyd left the series himself. He wasn't kicked off by Lorne as one or two fellows might think. Jesper left the Hitman-franchise as well. And I think Lorne is great replacement:) that's for you grumpy users ;)

Bar reply Replies: 0 || 2012-11-01 18:25:53
Well,

after listening to the entire album i must say the revelations one is much better,especially the main theme.

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2012-11-01 12:45:40
I know it's a stretch to ask right now since the game just came out, but at some point would someone mind attempting to put this in chronological order? I'm doing this as I'm playing the game, but I'm MAYBE 1/5 of the way through...

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 2 || 2012-10-31 23:28:00
Lorne told me they wrote nearly 4 hours for the game.

He'll put unreleased cues on his site very soon.


Macejko2012-11-01 10:04:43
That's good news, I'd like to hear some ambient music too.


lolly2012-11-01 11:10:49
i really like how lorne is so open to his fans and is willing to give us more material.

not like hans, promising since 20 years to bring a complete release of the lion kind, but disappeared again...

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2012-10-31 18:31:13
Ok, I gave it one more listening. The Main Theme is great, powerfull and epic... but the rest lacks variation and originality and is pretty uninteresting in general.


Radik2012-10-31 21:04:08
So We'll must wait until then game release.. how it works in game itself.. :)

Bondo reply Replies: 4 || 2012-10-30 12:29:02
It's available on Amazon MP3 right now, $8.99 and totally worth it!

Listen to "Fight Club" and "Beer With Friends" if you liked Sherlock or Skylanders :D

Anonymous2012-10-30 16:46:25
I agree. Expected much more. Revelations was much better. Every track sounds like a generic action track with drum loops, overdone brass synth with some violins playing in the back. With removing the vocals and the choir this score has lost all dramatics and emotion. Shame cause after revelations I expected a blockbuster score...

As far as Lorne is concerned, the last one was 75 min for him, including multiplayer stuff...

So that one isn't exactly FAR from that... :)

Oh well better then nothing. For me Lorne is the new Zimmer these days. He has a great sound. Only a few more days of waiting.


Bioscope2012-10-20 05:35:33
I love his take on the ethnic idiom, coupled with some serious dakness, so i can't wait to hear the Native American flavour.


Bondo2012-10-20 12:45:51
From the clips, you can hear Sherlock Holmes in "Fight Club" :D

And it's great that he kept the continuity by re-stating some of the themes from AC:R
