Obviously not. Harry Gregson-Williams got this credit for multiple David Buckley's soundtrackWhat's with the massive "score produced by" credit? I thought only Hans gets those? :PThe full OST is out already if you know where to look.I love the las few minutes of the sample. Anyone know how long till the actual release of the track?Hallo und danke für das tolle Konzert in Köln! <br>Der Sound war phantastisch und auch der LJ hat hat ganze Arbeit geleistet - einziger Wermutstropfen war, daß ich mich sehr über einen persönlichen Kontakt bei einer Signierstunde gefreut hätte, Ihre Signatur hätte sich sicher auf dem ein oder anderen Booklet sehr wohl gefühlt neben der von Lisa. Ich freue mich auf alles weitere aus Ihrer Feder und hoffe auf künftige Konzerte. MfG, Tobias
Complete Score leaked<br>That's it!! Thanks a lot, Edmund.<br><br>(I wasn't able to hear what he said when he introduced the track)<br><br>Hybrid, do you have any news regarding the release of the Wembley show recording? My fear is they finally realized it'd be wiser to release it AFTER the tour, so we'd have to wait until mid-June... so I really hope I'm wrong!Haha Edmund you make me really curious! Just managed to get my hand on A League of their own, I'll let you know what I think!<br><br>As for K2, I can't find it anywhere. It's not on iTunes (in Europe at least), it's not for download on amazon, nowhere at all. If you have a tip, please let me know :-)Even Zimmer kind of got his start off the back of Stanley Meyers, admittedly. It's how he nabbed all those little British drama movies in the late 80s like My Beautiful Launderette and The Fruit Machine. But yeah, Junkie XL is a totally different story.<br><br>Dude, A League of Their Own will blow your mind. It's like absolutely nothing else in Zimmer's career - okay, the dramatic material and themes sound like him, but the game music is this crazy, complex, energetic big-band jazz stuff which is just so much fun to listen to. Think The Incredibles on steroids. It's my favorite early Zimmer score!
As I understand it, the filmmakers pushed hard to get a more contemporary sound to the score, and while Basil Poledouris is no slouch at that kind of thing (just listen to his Wind score, which is amazing), I guess they ultimately ended up "soft rejecting" what he wrote and got Zimmer to come in and stop the gaps. I've never seen the movie, but from what I've read, it uses portions of both scores; mostly Poledouris for the themes and Zimmer for the action music.<br><br>It certainly sounds like a weird situation!<br><br>(Oh, and by the way, the sequel score for White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf, an early-career effort by John Debney, is really good! Better than either the Poledouris or the Zimmer.)I guess the MV formula worked really well for those guys... Powell, Mancina, HGW, what a dream team! But in Zimmer's case I find it even more impressive, because he started the whole thing himself, without this kind of studio to get him visibility (as far as I know, at least).<br><br>As for Junkie XL... for reasons you probably know, I think he's a totally different story (and with much less merits).<br><br>Next ones I've got to discover: K2 and A League of their own. As you probably guessed, I'm back in full fanboy-mode, I'm tired of waiting for new HZ releases and for the final concert, so I'm digging into the past! :-pUnless they played something different in Munich than in Berlin, it was "You're So Cool" from True Romance.I attended the concert in Munich. It was great! Can anyone tell me the name of the cheerful tune which started the second half of the concert? I don't think it was from any film, but was from Hans's school days.<br>Many Thanks!<br>So what is the story with this score. Was Hans brought in to save the day here? Did they leave Basils name because of his main theme?
Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me.<br>Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.There's quite a few, really. I mean, David Arnold totally came out of nowhere in the mid-90s (and has since returned to nowhere, sadly). Danny Elfman's rise around the same time as Zimmer's was just as meteoric.<br><br>I'm not actually so sure about HGW, for that matter. He didn't get any really big assignments on his own until arguably Spy Game in 2001; he did a lot of collaborative work before then but usually played second fiddle to someone else (Rabin or Powell or Hans himself). Mark Mancina might be a better example for MV, coming out of pretty much nowhere to do a huge action movie like Speed. Or even Powell himself: Face/Off is a hell of a big movie to debut on!HGW climbed quite fast too ! ;)<br><br>Oh btw speaking of K2, I want to set something straight. HZ's score for that one was done in 1992. The film originally came out in 1991 with the first score and it was decided to rescore it for Europe (and not the other way around). So Hans did it with Nick, who only joined Media Ventures in 1992 (and his first work was on Toys).For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!I can: Junkie XL. Make of that what you will... :|<br><br>This is an okay score but I don't find it to be as engaging or catchy or involving as other Zimmer scores from around the same period, like Days of Thunder or K2 (let alone Backdraft or the awesome A League of Their Own).
