@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Donít even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.
One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.hans should win the oscar for best sound effects and not for the best music/score. just as a statement.And it's also unfair to use Balfe to criticize Powell. He started working on American projects in 2005 with Batman Begins, and only after 2010 did he receive individual projects. Is it accurate to compare someone who entered the party at the last minute with two others who are in it for 20 (Powell) and 30 (Zimmer)?<br><br>I'm in a hurry and I put everything into a translator. Forgive the many mistakes.<br> <br><br><br>Composers do not need to worry about the attention, acceptance of the public of the same or the same intensity as pop music artists do. There's no need to do that. Occasionally some name draws attention to the public and causes many people to be in the genre, Williams and Zimmer are the main examples that I can bring the table. However it is not because Williams or Zimmer are extremely popular and perhaps worry about the material they are offering to the public who adores them that all the composers of the world need to do equal. Most of these men and women even enxeega as "celebrity". They are more like artisans or the rest of the crew of a film that occupies with the lights, effects and costumes and that will never have the same response from the public as the main actor. And they don't even expect it. So I think it's foolish to wait for Powell to occupy himself in 2,3 movies a year to please a fanbase.<br><br>I'll agree with you when it says it's deplorable to see CPR composers who talk so much about building a single voice and giving emerging talent the opportunity to use so many additional composers (many of them with a possible promise that in the future they will work with Zimmer and thus have the opportunity to show his face in Hollywood.The sense is almost always these.You start with a secondary composer, he arrives at Zimmer and gains some kind of notoriety). But Powell is not the only one who does this. So he should not be the only one criticized.Well...it's a film score. It has no obligation to provide a pleasant or enjoyable listening experience, and for an award like this that doesn't really come into consideration. So if it works in the film, it did its job and that's all that matters.<br><br>For me personally, as someone who cares about music first and films second, a score like Dunkirk has little value. A few years ago I probably would have been pretty mad about this score winning awards and acclaim (you should have seen how salty I got when The Social Network beat out HTTYD), but these days... *shrug*. I know what I like, Dunkirk isn't it, and that's fine. It wasn't written for me. Do I wish Hans still wrote the kind of music I like? Of course. But he gets to make his own choices as an artist, just as I get to choose what to listen to as a fan.
The score is already on itunes.This score... so many mixed emotions. Does it work for the film? Heck yeah. Does it improve the film? So much so. Did Hans do what he set out to do? Totally. Is it an award winning masterpiece? Um, not so fast.<br><br>Dunkirk, while super effective within the context of the film (I wouldnít change a thing about it), I must admit, it doesnít have nearly the same effect as a stand-alone listen. Itís literally the same textures and notes over and over again, just slightly rising and falling in pitch and tempo. Does that make it ďawardĒ worthy? Iím not sure. If based solely on the film, you betcha. If based purely on the music itself, I donít think so. Thatís where Interstellar succeeds so far and away over Dunkirk. As a pure listening experience, Interstellar is interesting, multi-layered and emotional. Whereas Dunkirk is just flat, void of any sort of feeling or ďactualĒ music (again, works IN the film). Itís glorified sound FX (save for the end, which, no doubt, is in large part to Ben).<br><br>Hmm... Iíve never had a score tear me apart more than this one. I both love it and hate it. Maybe it did itís job... lol.<br><br>Excuse me while I go listen to No Time for Caution yet again.I think most of us agree that he should've won for Interstellar but I think Dunkirk deserves it too. The work Hans and the music department did on this movie is just incredible. Must've been a lot of hard work. <br>An award is an award, Hans' 2nd Oscar is long overdue so I'd be glad to see him win. But it would be weird to see him win for THAT score, after all the greatnesses of the past 20 years. Same thing with Morricone who won his only Oscar for his very light and insignificant work on Hateful Eight. Good for the man, good for the fans, but doesn't really make sense. But have Oscars ever made sense? :-phaha hybrid :D made my day

The end credits theme is Rise Up In Faith, and ''moses opens the Red Sea'' it's not in the OST. Unfortunately as many many other cues and you won't find it anywhere :(

Sorry friend, those tracks are not on the Son Of God release... I hope they release these tracks on the upcoming A.D. series. Hopefully, Hans Zimmer will score this series...

Or they can make another Bible series soundtrack with all the unreleased tracks...

I love the traces that Hans Zimmer produced for these projects: The Bible Series/ Son Of God. I just wish that producers and filmmakers could release more tracks from these projects.It would be nice if they could...

Otherwise well done!

Anonymous reply Replies: 5 || 2014-03-16 23:22:24
I know we'll never figure this out clearly but if I had to guess I'd say Faith, In the Beginning, and Roma's Lament were the ones where Zimmer had a big role, and then the rest of the score is Balfe/the other arrangers. What do you guys think? Faith definitely has a Journey to the Line vibe, and then In the Beginning sounds like the Marry Me suite from POTC3, and then he posted the nativity scene (which has the same theme from Roma's Lament) on Facebook when this score first came out (implying he worked on that). What do you guys think?


Anonymous2014-03-16 23:23:31
Of course I think Lorne was involved with those three tracks WITH Hans... :)


MacArthur2014-03-16 23:55:50
Don't Forget "Creation Choral" That one is the main bible theme.


Anonymous2014-03-17 01:00:07
Yeah true but it's just the theme from In the Beginning in powerhouse form...I always figured it was a Lorne arrangement of that theme, but idk. :)


RealFfingMusic2014-03-17 17:57:27
It's very hard to distinguish between Hans and Lorne Balfe. He works so much with Hans he sounds quite a lot Zimmer-y to me.

He was undercredited in Inception and Megamind, and I believe he did a lot here too. (I would like to know how much).

I think "In the Beginning" is a lot more Zimmer than Balfe too, but we can't be sure. It might turn out that this one and Faith are the only ones Zimmer didn't touch! lol.


Mike2014-03-17 19:35:31
No, I agree with RealFfingMusic: In the Beginning definitely sounds like it's mostly Zimmer. Same with the first couple minutes of Faith, as it slowly builds.

On IMDB Lorne is credited, not zimmer...

With what writing the score?


...2013-10-22 18:56:10
According to IMDB Lorne will score "Son of God" himself, without Zimmer.


MacArthur2013-10-22 18:59:01
Ok...I was thinking that you were saying Balfe Scored the Bible soundtrack. I was gonna say.most of the Bible score was Zimmer. :)



Mike2013-10-22 19:54:29
Hybrid, would you please clear this up? Is it not true that Lorne did most, or at least a good half, of this score, and that it is *not* mostly Zimmer?


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-22 20:04:26
Of course Lorne did most of it...

HZ's words on it : "...And yes, Lorne out-did himself on this one! Great, great work by him."

I guess that says it all, nope ?


Mike2013-10-22 20:06:39
Thank you, sir!


MacArthur2013-10-22 20:37:10
Ok...But still The Director's did say that Zimmer's score was essential, and that's not the AP that's the Director's saying that. But I will say that Balfe did have have a good deal in the score as Hybrid said


Mike2013-10-22 20:52:24
The Beyond: Two Souls creators also said how great it was that HANS ZIMMER did that score, but we both know he did not. Hans' name gives publicity and directors know that, so even if he just did a bit, they'll make it sound like he had a huge hand in it.


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:00:01
Sorry about saying most if your thinking that I mean Zimmer did like 90% of this score I know that he didn't But I will say that he did about half if not 60% of this simply because the Director's sat in on the some Scoring session. From what I gather from beyond two souls the creator's did not.


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:09:33
One other thing about this score Zimmer is listed as a Composer and not a producer as he is in beyond two souls


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-22 21:17:26
60%? More like 25%. If that. Zimmer does a lot less than you seem to think he does, Mac.


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:49:38
Where do you get that info that he did only 25%?


MacArthur2013-10-22 21:57:09
I'll give half the credit to Balfe. but I'll bet Zimmer did more than you guys give him credit for.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-23 00:13:08
It's just that scores credited to Zimmer and Balfe are almost invariably more the latter than the former. We had that with MW2, we had that with Megamind, we had that with The Dilemma. Not quite as sure about Crysis 2 but there's so little RCP music in that one that it's hard to tell.

In the case of The Bible it's also more of a gut feeling. Most of the score just seems to sound more Balfey to me than Zimmerish. "Faith" is really the only cue that strikes me as really having a lot of Zimmer vibe. Maybe he also had a hand in writing the themes but I'm willing to bet Balfe was the one who did the actual cues, which counts more in my book. Put that together with what we know about previous "Zimmer/Balfe" scores and I have a fairly strong inclination that Balfe did most of the legwork. And what Hybrid said just above me in this thread doesn't exactly disprove my gut feeling, does it.

I'd be glad to find out more about what happened here, but until then, it's "Balfe until proven Zimmer" for me. :p


MacArthur2013-10-23 06:53:36
Ok...To each his own, And I understand that. MW2 was Mostly Balfe looking at some sources.

Megamind I did not know about. Funny cause a few cues in that like "black mamba"
Rejection in the rain and Melan-choly sound like Zimmer to me

For this one in terms of a gut feeling I get what you are saying here what sounds like Zimmer to me.

"Faith"
"In The Beginning"
"Roma's Lament"
The next four are so bland and repetitive hence Balfe, Also occurs in MW2 several times where the music get old.

But I get the feeling 12-16 are Zimmer even "I Am" is Zimmer.

That's My Gut Feeling. :)



Mike2013-10-23 17:31:42
Honestly, I feel like a lot of times it's not easy to tell what's Balfe and what's Zimmer when both names are on the cover. Balfe does so much ghostwriting and arranging for Zimmer that he really sounds like Zimmer (unless a score is JUST Lorne Balfe without Zimmer's name attached in any way, in which case you can usually tell a difference). In MW2, if I were told that all of it was Zimmer, I'd believe it. I mean, yes, Zimmer has a distinct sound, but a lot of the time it's more blurry than you seem to think (when you say things like "This sounds like Zimmer to me"--it all kinda sounds like Zimmer!). And to say that something bland and repetitive must be Lorne Balfe is unreasonable. Also, there's a lot of music in MW2's complete score. I wouldn't call it "repetitive". Each mission has a new feel to its music, generally. Though I will admit the "Extraction Point" theme was a little overused in the Washington DC portions of the game.


Mike2013-10-23 17:55:21
...and my apologies if that seemed overly harsh. Wasn't meant to. :P


MacArthur2013-10-23 18:00:42
No biggy Understand.

To Me in MW2 Around track 6 though 12 or 13 it all sounds the same.
But the Game Experience is preety cool.

Yes Zimmer was more involved if that's what your trying to ask

Anon-e-missing reply Replies: 9 || 2013-05-16 21:31:46
Is it fair to say Lorne Balfe was the primary composer here?


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-16 21:45:10
I think so. Considering it only says "Composer: Main Theme" next to Zimmer's name up there...I wouldn't be surprised if "Faith" was a largely Zimmer cue and the rest could be chalked up to Balfe, but that's purely guesswork on my part. The man in the green text probably will know better than I.


Anon.2013-05-16 23:41:25
Hybrid, wonder if you could answer this:

So, a score like the Bible or Call of Duty MWFII says Hans Zimmer composer/main theme, Lorne Balfe composer, when I'm sure Lorne uses a majority of Zimmer's themes for the final score, then plays around with them for the cues.
BUT then (as i've concluded from many comments on this site) a very similar thing happens on scores like Dark Knight Rises and Sherlock Holmes, yet only Zimmer is credited. Doesn't seem fair or Lorne?

Is this because of legal contract issues? or is there other reasons????

As much as I enjoy leisurely listening to the scores or Hans and RCP, I feel as if it's completely ruining the way film scores are made. It's no longer 1 composer spending hours and committing their life to the art, it's become a 'pop' album, where the credited person does basic work on themes and ideas, but then gives it to a million other people to 'do the work for them."

I'm all for collaboration, but this is completely ruining the art of film music.


Mike2013-05-17 23:04:42
I can answer that one, Anon. With The Dark Knight Rises, pretty much ALL the music comes from one of two sources: the suites Hans wrote for the movie or from the scores of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight (also by Hans). And even though Lorne arranged a whole lot of cues for the film, they're hardly changed from the way Hans wrote them, so you're truly listening to Hans Zimmer when you watch the film.

With Modern Warfare 2, Hans only wrote ONE piece, the Opening Titles. The other pieces are not only arranged by Lorne (as in TDKR) but COMPOSED BY Lorne (something not the case in TDKR).


Mike2013-05-17 23:16:57
While TDKR can truly be called a Hans score, however, I do understand the question with regards to Inception (which I mentioned on that page), where Lorne not only arranged the score as heard in the film but wrote a couple themes himself (Fischer's theme, Kick It Suite, and possibly even Saito's theme). In that case I would say he should be given credit as a co-composer.


Bioscope2013-08-28 05:38:29
@ Edmund. LOL, I like that. Get ready, guys, cause He is coming back. This Syria thing is worrying me...


MacArthur2013-08-28 06:34:51
Zimmer actually did most of Inception


Mike2013-08-28 18:18:45
Not really, MacArthur...


MacArthur2013-08-29 06:12:29
I put the Track listings ion the Dark Knight Rises Zimmer Did Help with the Balfe Themes and He was Credited with the Oscar and if there are to many composers hollywood won't nominate a score That's why The Dark Knight didn't get nominated


JamesT2013-08-29 06:27:09
Any possibility of Recording Sessions with this? The variations and hours of additional, unreleased material are just magnificent! Hoping so!

MacArthur reply Replies: 8 || 2013-08-26 06:38:47
So here's what I have heard and think Hans Zimmer did in terms of this score.

1. Faith (Hans Zimmer) Contains Theme
2. In The Beginning (Hans Zimmer) Main Theme
3. Roma's Lament (Hans Zimmer) Main Theme
11. I Am (Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe) Contains Theme
13. Free Us, Save Us. (Hans Zimmer)
14. The Nativity (Hans Zimmer) Theme
15. Creation Choral (Hans Zimmer) Theme
16. Rise Up in Faith (Hans Zimmer) Theme


I gather that Zimmer did More than just the main theme simply because the director and producers were commenting on his score and other interviews Hans was asked how he did the score. so in my opinion Hans did more than just the Main theme.


MacArthur 2013-08-26 06:42:37
And also on the CD it says that he did more than just the theme and had more involvement in it than just that. now Balfe did a lot of the score and I'm Talking like 50% of it while Hans did about 40% And 10% The Additional Composers.


Mike2013-08-26 17:22:29
You have a point, my friend. Why would the series' crew say so much about Zimmer's music if he only did a theme?


Mike2013-08-26 17:28:08
I would also imagine Hans did "Marry Me"...Oh, I'm sorry, I meant "In the Beginning". ;)


MacArthur 2013-08-26 23:34:37
I Don't Get it


MacArthur2013-08-27 19:17:14
I would Imagine That He Did at least 55%


Mike2013-08-27 23:46:16
I said the Marry Me thing because "In the Beginning" sounds intensely reminiscent of Hans Zimmer's suite "Marry Me" from At World's End.


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-27 23:50:36
Really? I thought it sounded more like the Terminator theme. Which is hilarious.

So Hybrid what ones did Zimmer work on? to be specific

MacArthur reply Replies: 4 || 2013-07-31 00:26:48
Did Lorne Balfe Write The Score Or Hans Zimmer


Mike2013-07-31 00:32:50
Lorne did the majority of it, while Zimmer did the main themes.

What is the main theme because faith didn't sound like a theme more a opening to the series. The main theme I thought was in creation choral, nativity, in the beginning, and Roma's Lament. those sounded like the main themes.


Bioscope2013-08-02 08:03:02
'In The Beginning' could serve as an intro theme, as it resembles The Chorale, but there was no single intro theme used to open the series. They always varied based on 'Previously On The Bible'.

'In The Beginning' did open the series...


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-02 15:39:22
Stop scratching your heads, the themes are co-written by Hans & Lorne...

hybrid, what track is the main theme that zimmer composed?


Mike2013-07-20 05:24:07
Not Hybrid, but I think it's Faith.

This score is very nice!
I wonder if someone could say which tracks are in which episodes and which tracks that are used more than once:)

Prott reply Replies: 7 || 2013-05-25 01:49:29
Just a little offtopic - does anyone know something about Lorne's/RCP involvement in Fast & Furious 6? There's a bunch of RCP credits (Lorne Balfe as technical assistant, Gavin Greenaway as conductor) in end titles of the movie + the whole score sounds quite "RCP-ish" in some places (it even features a few samples from the RCP sample library). Thanks! :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-25 08:29:10
Vidal is quite linked to RCP indeed. Bruce Fowler orchestrated some of his movies.

Lorne "technical assistant" ? You sure ? No way, he wouldn't lose time on a film like that as tech assistant. Music consultant why not. This just looks like a credit to hide his true role. I'll do a little enquiry about that... :P


Prott2013-05-25 13:57:21
Thank you! :) I'm actually not really that sure about Lorne's specific credit (it could be "musical consultant") - but I'm sure it isn't "additional music".

I'm curious about the situation with this one, because it sounded like one of those "complicated scores" (and I don't mean a bad score - just a last minute rewrite, or something like that - the score itself is actually quite enjoyable). It borrows heavily from Brian Tyler's material for last two movies (mainly Letty's and the "family" theme) and it also features quite a few temp-track inspired cues (Mombasa, Time), but of course that's not a fault of a composer. :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-25 14:11:01
I heard somewhere that Vidal now works in HGW's old studio, is that true?

Also, more to the point, is the score from FF6 going to get a release? The movie's already out and I haven't heard anything, which is making me a little nervous. I really like Vidal's scores (Cold Light of Day was excellent) and this is his biggest movie yet so I'm interested to hear it, especially if he actually keeps continuity with Tyler's themes. A different composer keeping the previous themes? I must be dreaming!


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-25 18:36:33
Lorne confirmed to me he did some consulting on it. Just some advice to Vidal... :)

And yeah, I watched the film this morning, lots of RCP samples used indeed !


Prott2013-05-25 23:41:01
Thanks Hybrid! :) Yeah, lots of samples, but sadly there weren't any RCP-sampled french horns. Those are always epic... :-)


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-26 00:03:57
Thank God! If there's one thing that bugs me it's synth horns. I don't mind electronics if they can add to the orchestra, but I'd prefer them not to replace it.


Prott2013-05-26 01:29:45
For me it depends on the style of the score - they would bug me in more "lyrical" scores (like Da Vinci Code, PotC 3), but they are great when it comes to the sheer force. :)

In the Beginning is amazing! It's like a perfect mix of the love theme from POTC3 and the Da Vinci Code.


Mike2013-05-03 07:14:24
It is. I haven't seen the series, but I imagine judging by the track title that "I Am" plays during Moses' encounter with God in the Burning Bush. So I wonder how Hans felt having to score that a second time (the first time being "The Burning Bush" from "The Prince of Egypt").


Mike2013-05-03 07:16:17
Though perhaps this one was referring to the words Christ in John 8...But that seems unlikely.


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-04 00:20:06
Although not as good as either of those two things, plus the melody reminds me of Terminator somehow.

Highly doubt there's "only" 2 hours of music for a 7+ hour show. But I haven't seen it, so maybe there's not much music in it !(?)


Bioscope2013-04-20 21:08:36
@Per, maybe true, but there were a lot of places where the same music was tracked, looped and edited, as we witnessed in SURVIVOR, care of Landau's library music. The validity of this is so so, but the spelling mistakes worry me a little. I hope these are not fanmade titles...


x-jazz2013-04-20 23:11:08
Any info if this is a DVD-rip?
Indeed there are a lot of scenes where the same music was tracked, but there is still a lot of great music in the series that has not been released yet, some great choral and orchestral passages and some nice variations of existing themes, so I do hope this is indeed real. The "Carrying The Cross" cue and the choral piece when Paul gets arrested in the end (also plays in the court of Pharaoh with Moses earlier on) are the ones I really wish were released.


Mike2013-04-22 09:28:03
@Bioscope: Spelling doesn't mean illegitimacy. On the cue list for Empire Strikes Back, John Williams consistently misspelled "Vader" as "Vadar". :P

Both my wife and I cried when we watched the scene, and I listened to the score underneath. I only now appreciate what this man went through for me, someone he had never even met as a human walking on Earth. Beautiful and wise that FAITH was also used with dread overlays for the Abraham and Isaac sequence. (Sacrificing your own son.

The most poigniant sequence since THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST as would be allowed for television viewing...

That would be awesome. It shouldn't be hard, as Lorne himself is lately so generous with his own material. SWEENEY and RESTLESS both offer legal complete scores, so why not THE BIBLE? It seems it is up to Hans Zimmer's views regarding his contributions...

Also, it feels like this score was done with sampled orchestra and live players, so the re-use should be minimal.

Jimmer2013-03-05 13:12:42
@Bryan: I TOTALLY agree! This score is very well done and anyone who says otherwise is ignorant at recognizing a great piece of work. It's like a mix of Da Vinci Code and Gladiator. Good mix.


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-05 13:20:13
I do not think I'm a ignorant. I heard more than 200 works of Hans Zimmer, and I would like to say that this one is Ok, but a disappointment in regards of what Zimmer has done many years before. The musical structure and the themes are not very original, i was expecting more, sorry.

On a "Faith" theme, I prefer to come back to the "Prince of Egypt" 15 years before...


Edmund Meinerts2013-03-05 13:36:25
So anyone who disagrees with you, Jimmer, is ignorant and incapable of recognizing "true art"? As Chandler would say, could you BE any more arrogant? :/

And @Jonathan...are there even 200 works of Hans Zimmer out there? Unless you're counting individual cues...


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-05 13:54:30
@ Edmund: Yes 200 is a bit exaggerated ;)
155 different works counting one track work such that "Who are the Roma?"
Officially this is around 130 soundtracks for movies.
More than 200 is with complete release...


Edmund Meinerts2013-03-05 18:26:24
Ah, gotcha. I don't tend to count completes and OSTs of the same movie as two different "works", so my count is somewhere around a hundred. Of course, it's hard to know whether to include something like Crysis 2 or Megamind where HZ only contributed a theme or some additional music.


david2013-03-08 20:47:12
this is masterpiece! one of the best work from hans and lorne in last years, who doesnt hear in this massive huge epic melodies is probably deaf...


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-10 19:30:31
@ Edmund:

Of course, if we do not count score like the one you mentioned, I'm not sure we will reach 40 or 50 by hans himself... ;)
This is not a surprise to see that Hans is one the composer with the most credited film music comparing to the majority. But yes, maybe the half has not been written by him.

Personally, one of the last time I put more than **** stars to a Zimmer's score was back to 2006 with the Da Vinci Code , which seems to be one of the last real Zimmer score, a sign? ;)



Hybrid Soldier2013-03-10 19:35:00
And then you're getting about Da Vinci... But as usual you have no clue about how things are going on ! Just "I think" !


Jonathan Rochat2013-03-10 21:29:24
Well this is not the very large list of all people that are working on a Zimmer's soundtrack since 2006 that tends to think the opposite in fact. :D

I really enjoy Zimmer in general, but the last years were in my opinion the worst of his career, even if there were sometimes very good moments. Just a thought.

But "the Bible" is finally quite good, juste not very original. I still expect a lot for "Man of Steel" :D
