Great note! Very insightful. :) Thank you Hybrid.13 Hours is much betterthx Hybrid!I found back Trevor Morris' note about this score. I wrote it in the details, pretty interesting on the process. :)I LOVE this score, it's like Nine Inch Nails, a mix of industrial/rock ambient sounds. This and the dark-ambient music of Blair Witch (2016) by Adam Wingard, two of my favorite scores of this month.
I think Steve just seemingly confirmed he's scoring Transformers 5 on his Instagram. Not that i was worried. :))))And on that note, this is actually one of the more emotionally-driven sound design scores I've heard.Well said, Edmund. And ultimately, the final decision really does come down to the director and his preferences. It must be hard being a film composer right now. Write a score that sounds great on its own but doesn't fit with the tone of the film, it gets bashed. Write a minimalist, more sound-design oriented score, it gets bashed.I don't really see how the movie's subject dictates that the score be dark and electronic either. I think both approaches have possible merits and possible disadvantages. You might say that an orchestral, thematic score is tasteless because it would play tragic deaths for "cheap" drama...but if that's your case, then isn't the entire movie also guilty of the same thing? You might just as easily say that by going the electronic route, Jablonsky is neglecting the human cost of the disaster and focusing too much on its mechanics.<br><br>I don't agree with either line of thinking, though. A good score is a good score no matter what it's made of. I *personally* don't much like listening to sound-design scores, and I wish Jablonsky had gone for something a bit more expansive for purely selfish reasons. But that doesn't mean I think his approach was an invalid one, and I don't think you should say that an orchestral approach would have been invalid either. It's all about the execution.Thanks.
Hahaha no, I haven't done any cover at the moment. I'm searching the score from the vocal version (there's a version in youtube, I don't know if you know it) from "now we are free" and the orchestal score of "Chevaliers de Sangreal". I really love that theme!<br><br>And also sorry for my bad english, I'm spanish studying english :DThere is some "Incredible Hulk" reprise in "Not that sort of bank"The movie is about a disaster with real people, don't fit a orchestral epic dramatic score, more a electronic, dark, gritty score.<br><br>Everyone expect orchestral when don't fit in every movie...Looks like it's digital only :(People here seem to forget that scores and soundtracks are made for a movie. They are not made as a music album in the first place. Some composers make like more than 2 or 3 scores a year. That's not the same like an artist or band who makes an new album once in 2 or 3 years). <br><br>Scores are a really nice extra thing you get from a movie and yes some albums are great to listen to, others with more like an ambient and underscore type of sound can be seen as disappointing and boring.  I think it's wrong to give Jablonsky a hard time here because he made a score that will fit this movie, but when listening to it without the movie it can be kind of boring... Composers don't make this music just to bring out a new album for us! They make music for movies and afterwards they can share it with us. <br><br>About the movie, I don't think this movie needed some kind of memorable heroic themes. It's a serious thriller and giving this some theme's like Transformers would look and sound ridiculous. I was expecting a score like this.
Steve said in an interview that they didn't want a orchestral score, so he made it completely on his computer. Check interview here: youtube.com/watch?v=Glr-dgumGgoLove this Score Great Work!!!!Don't always blame the composer. More often than not, it's a combination of director, producer(s) and studio.I realize there are some harsh tracks akin to Battleship but if you just skip to the end you will find the final cue is one of the most gorgeous and emotional of Jablonsky's career :)...or more likely the director/producers wanted something more akin to sound design than melody.

Really superb score, I like it a lot. Wolverines' theme is stunningly powerfull.

I got some news from the additional composers regarding their work here. They did not remember everything since they worked on it more than 2 years ago.

But Dom Lewis worked on Victory and Daryl's Sacrifice. Apparently that's all.

Bobby Tahouri worked on Invasion and "some others".

And Bryce Jacobs worked on Counter Insurgency and "others" too ! :)

We'll probably get all the details in months to come, but big thanks to these great guys, and Ramin of course, the mastermind here !!! :)

Bought this yesterday, I've listened to it a couple of times so far.

Really love it. The main "Wolverines" theme is great. A Marine And His Rifle is a good rendition of it !

Love the track Red Dawn too ! :)


Macejko2012-11-20 11:07:11
Gosh, I want to listen to it so bad!


MrZimmerFan (Fan from Spain)2012-11-20 21:09:50
I listen few samples, i really like this score


Trent Easton Navarro2012-11-21 20:39:55
Listened to it on Spotify. It's enjoyable and harmless fun I guess, but it's nowhere near as great as Poledouris' score for the original.


MrZimmerFan (Fan from Spain)2012-11-24 11:39:22
I really like this score, the Themes are very entertaing, especially Wolverines and Red Dawn, and i love Invasion, that percussions, oh....

Ramin Djawadi similar music FACTORY


Macejko2012-10-27 14:17:33
Are you just putting random words together?


Areozz2012-10-27 19:02:54
I believe he is trying to say that Djawadi's style of composing is so similar for every movie he does that he is almost like a 'music factory'--outputting nearly identical compositions for each and every movie.

I am not agreeing or disagreeing with this claim; merely interpreting it.


Macejko2012-10-27 19:18:52
If so, I can see myself laughing really hard about this statement.
