Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Where can we have this complete score ? :/

Lovely stuff... way better than the first soundtrack by a country mile. I could write a lot about all the tracks, but my softest spot is for "Sinking the Stinger".

Still, I agree that it was a little disappointing some of the music used in the "suite" tracks was not used in the movie. It would have been better for the movie.

T-Mann0362013-12-24 03:54:16
I agree with you 101%.

And that was the only information I needed. Now I know who he is

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-02 14:14:32
Fantastic Sherlock !

I rarely post there, just some pieces of advice from time to time because most of the people around is just so goddam lost !

And yeah since I'm not a cover designer (like... at ALL) and my friends are not always available, I take some where I can, and I try to ask permission as much as possible. In this very case, it was T-Mann... :)

S/ash2013-01-02 14:22:04
Well then it's a shame I couldn't get you to use my own cover for TRON: Legacy. Cause honestly, the one here sucks balls. That artwork has been used way too much. Mine is far superior

T-Mann0362013-01-02 14:47:28
Now THAT was uncalled for, S/ash.

Mr. Charles2013-01-02 15:00:30
Whoa, whoa. It's actually MY cover, S/ash just helped me tweak it a bit. If anyone wants to see it, PM me on the site that cannot be mentioned. I agree about it being far superior to the one on here, though. The artwork on it is used to much and I'm sick of seeing it. "Music from the Motion Picture by Daft Punk"? Seriously? It lacks the word "complete", something my cover has. If you want to see it, you know how to reach me

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-02 15:14:53
I'm personally not a big fan of all those "Music from the Recording Sessions", "Complete score", "Expanded score"...

I do prefer the old classic "Music by" which can be used in every case... :P

Mr. Charles2013-01-02 15:27:18
All it says is "Complete Motion Picture Soundtrack", which is what it is, because it includes the source music by Journey and Eurythmics. Also included is the TRON Scherzo and it's alternate. The one heard in the film is the videogane music, which can be heard slightly over Journey's "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart). Everything heard in the film is included, so it's the complete soundtrack. Again, if anyone wants to see it, contact me.

My cover art also includes Daft Punk's logo Ik the TRON style font

Mike2013-01-02 22:56:27
I definitely agree with Hybrid here, I like covers which can be used for any type of album.

Anonymous2013-01-03 00:36:44
Mr. Charles, most real score lovers care nothing for non-original music that has nothing to do with the film. If it is original source by the composers, that's fine, but songs from years before the film was even thought of? Meh.

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-03 13:07:29
Yep I basically keep all that's "score team" related. Score of course, songs written, produced and/or arranged by the score crew.

Like for instance, from Blade Trinity, the song Fatal by RZA was orchestrated/arranged by Stephen Coleman, Djawadi's main orchestrator. I won't keep a song from a previous RZA album.

Hybrid Soldier, I'm curious as to how you knew this was T-Mann's cover art? I mean, you deny being a certain member who shares good stuff (rhymes with "shore" and sopranos"), and you deny being a member on the forum that cannot be linked to on this site, so how'd you know?

T-Mann0362013-01-02 05:31:54
Do us all a favor and do not create a drama. This is not the place to start one OK? Peace on earth.

S/ash2013-01-02 13:20:24 what are you saying T-Mann? That you and Hybrid know each other? That he's on the site which cannot be linked to on here? I think you've both just blown each other's cover. Well...we all KNEW he was a member there. But bow the evidence is indisputable. How else would he have known to credit you? Hmm...I wonder...

Agent Smith2013-01-02 13:32:52
oh man, who cares where hybrid is surfing and what sites he's visiting. is it a crime to visit that site? no! so who cares, we're able to hear to the sessions, be thankful for that!

Hybrid Soldier2013-01-02 13:46:34
Yes I'm there, I watch what's going on. It's my job to know what's going on... :P

The score as heard in film is not exactly really good... Too bad they decided not to use some of Jablonsky's finest ideas, especially Battleship Idea & Acoustic Drive...

PS : cover credit goes for T-Mann here !

Lampert2012-12-26 16:51:11
Yeah the ideas are actually nice!

btw. could you please delete the email posts in POTC2 topic? I've send you an email but you didn't respond.

Hybrid Soldier2012-12-26 17:01:11
Well I can't do it myself, I've already warned the guys in charge for it... It's in their hands now ! :)

janlee2012-12-26 17:46:09
Hybrid you are right, the ideas by jablonsky are great, i wonder why they didnt want to ues them. This is another great example of what a composer writes and what the director and producer want instead but the blame is shifted to the composer for not being good enough etc.

MrZimmerFan (Fan from Spain)2012-12-26 17:54:16
I agrre with Hybrid, but in the movie there is a great action themes, also included in the recording sessions

Is still one of the best works of Jablonsky

Hybrid Soldier2012-12-26 17:54:16
Yeah people just have no idea... ;)

T-Mann0362012-12-26 20:21:22
Thanks for crediting me, Hybrid. I truly appreciate it.

Ds2012-12-27 22:55:50
Wow, i can't understand why the hell the director did not want all these wonderful ideas from Steve Jablonsky. Imo the score wasn't bad but a little bit too loud and generic, it's true. These complete recording sessions proves that Jablonsky's still a very talented composer!© 2001-2017 OST
