The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe “leaked” his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

What's with DP's helmets on the top right?

I know on the liner notes there is a thank you directed towards Zimmer.. But what's the connection between HZ & DP?


Areozz2014-01-29 01:10:48
Zimmer was the Music Consultant.


Spence2014-01-29 06:53:26
They just won the grammy for Best Album. Since they've worked with RCP, it would only make sense to promote them in that promotion icon spot :)


Zeus2014-01-29 16:43:06
While that does make sense, it was well over 3 years ago. If anything, their helmets were there during the release of the soundtrack and / or film. But who knows. Perhaps that is why, perhaps not.


RealFfingMusic2014-02-08 20:19:13
How many people exactly composed the tracks?

Warfighter reply Replies: 6 || 2013-04-14 02:19:32
What was RCP's involvement in "Oblivion"? It definitely has a strong Inception/ Dark Knight vibe
The credits state: Mixed at RCP.

Did Clay Duncan work on this?

It's really a great score and fits the movie perfectly.



Ds2013-04-14 16:25:16
I think it's the first great epic score of 2013!

I didn't know it was mixed at RCP, i checked the digital booklet and didn't find anything about that... But i did it quickly so maybe i'm wrong!


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-14 16:33:51
Unlike Tron RCP didn't work on that one in any way... Yeah the score was mixed there, like a LOT of scores these days, cause it's one of the best facilities for that in Hollywood... ;)


The score is great, but unlike Tron, sounds really nothing like RCPish... Sure one cue is a TDKR ripoff (temptrack, I guess), and yeah a few have Tron vibe, but that's all... Putting a synth pad in a score these days & using percussions make everyone call anything RCP...


JamesT2013-04-15 02:32:34
Very true, Hybrid.


Edmund Meinerts2013-04-28 15:56:01
Sounds nothing like RCP? Then what's with all the Batman Begins/Dark Knight ostinatos running all over the place? That opening track "Waking Up" is obviously influenced by Zimmer's Batman scores (with one Inception blast thrown in for good measure) and it's far from the only one. The similarities go way beyond just synth and percussion.


Ds2013-04-28 16:38:19
I agree with Edmund Meinerts, the composers were clearly influenced by Zimmer last works for the orchestral parts (especially TDKR). But what's best in Oblivion score is the synth stuff, which remains very fresh.


Mike2013-07-05 01:21:13
Hybrid, which cue is the TDKR ripoff? Judging by the album, I'd guess it's "Waking Up", but I don't know since I never saw the film or heard the complete score.

Hi I'm from Chile. I study graphic design at Diego Portales University I have to do a work about Hans Zimmer . I would know if you can help me please, answering some questions &#191;What do you think about him as composer? &#191;What is his best soundtrack and why? &#191; What is important about his life?(something anecdotic) .If you tell me all the things that you know I'd be really grateful.

Final Scheme, CD 1, is not on the recently leaked sessions?


Stygian2012-12-30 04:05:20
I'm fairly sure it is. Look again.


Anonymous2012-12-30 21:35:47
Not on my set.


Mr. Charles2012-12-30 22:52:14
Well then son, you need to download it again. It's listed on here as track 27. On the sessions, it's cue 5m26s Final Scheme. It was released as the bonus track "Castor"


Mr. Charles2012-12-30 22:54:33
There's an "s" in front of the 26 because it's source music. I would have thought that it's just part of the score, but I guess not. It plays when Sam is in the End of Line club talking with Castor, or "Zues". All of the music playing during that part of the film (End of Line, Final Scheme, Party Crashers) is considered source music.

Hybrid, do you have the credits for each track? :)


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-28 10:20:26
Well you know it's nearly all tracks by Daft Punk & Joe Trapanese.

Flynn's Flashback is by Toby Chu.


Then you have some unknown help by some unknown big guys, but it's not really known... xD


theeaglesfan0052012-12-28 19:47:46
i know Hans Zimmer was involved... in the booklet that came with the soundtrack they give a huge thanks to him and some other people

I really can't wait for Trapanese's TU release on January 8th


Mr. Charles2012-12-28 23:04:59
I was getting at that. They thanked Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams, Christophe Beck and a couple other composers. The entire score has Zimmer's touch all over it. But thanks for the partial credit for that one cue I suppose. There just has to be more, though


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-29 10:06:51
Clay Duncan was the first guy hired to score Tron Legacy (hence his trailer music back 4 years ago). His music actually had the roots of the final score.

Director wanted Daft, so they kicked him.

But in the end Mickey wasn't pleased with DP, so they asked for some back up by RCP and others. Not saying DP's score was rejected, not at all, but it was really guided & helped by RCP people, including... Clay Duncan, the fallen... LOL


Mr. Charles2012-12-29 18:08:17
Well I went to Joseph Trapanese's site and found some credits. Turns out he's worked on M83's latest album. They happen to be composing Tom Cruise's new movie "Oblivion", which is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who also directed Legacy. Anyway, here's the credits:

1.) Outlands (OST)
Quorra Saves Sam (Sessions)

2.) Fall (OST)
Flynn Drops In (Sessions)

3.) Sunrise Prelude (Bonus Track, same on Sessions)

4.) Rectifier (OST)
C.L.U. Speech (Sessions)

5.) C.L.U. (OST)
Lightjets (Sessions)

6.) Flynn Lives (Same as OST & Sessions)

7.) Solar Sailor (OST)
End Credits, pt. II (Sessions)

Ans Toby Chu arranged "Flynn's Flashback", which is "Adagio for TRON" on the OST

Where is the Inception recording sessions? I Mean its great to have this complete scores but why inception its not even released, even the dark knight rises was released so why not inception

Sadly, m'friend, I don't think it will surface. All we've had were countless fake track lists.
