i love this movie and soundtracks !I hope LLL didn't microedit this as much as the first one.So, there's music in the Road to 2049 site, and it's pretty cool, but no idea if it's actual score. The lenght seems more like promo track for trailers.<br><br>Would be great to know where it's from, score or otherwise, because it's a great track and hope the score sounds like this!<br><br>Here's the site <br>roadto2049. bladerunnermovie. comI thoroughly enjoyed King Arthur. Good acting, Good Story, Incredible Score, perhaps underrated.iTunes SriLanka is the first itunes store to get the new releases online on friday. But by now you can also go to iTunes New Zeland or something and checkout the album and itís samples.
@Armageddon<br><br>1. i love the movie. 2. rockhound is the most annoying character in the whole movie, but at least he has a cool name. ;) 3. bruce willis is smiling in almost all his emotional scenes and not just in this movie. but you know, in germany the movies are dubbed, so his "german" voice and the music helped alot to make these scenes nontheless convincing. to be honest, the goodbye scene was even more sad than the dying scene of leonardo dicaprio in Titanic. so you see, what impact the music had.<br><br>@Edmund<br><br>i didnt say the movie is bad, just bruce willis in a couple of scenes. so....the music had alot more to do than in Pirates III. the impact of the music in Armageddon must be way stronger to make these scenes work than in Pirates III. in Pirates III these scenes would have been also convincing without the music, because the acting was strong enough. but nontheless the music in Pirates III adds alot to the scenes and makes them stronger. just my opinion.Where did you get this information and samples?Where can I listen to those samples? I would love to hear some bits of the score before watching the movie.The score has 25 tracks and is about 1 hour and 16 minutes long. Samples sound awesome. Great action score with new theme's and variations of the old ones. Looking forward to hearing it in full.Total video game score, circa 98. This is one of those scores -<br> my first - that you just didn't get enough of no matter HOW many cds they released of it. Hell, it wasn't until 2000 when I finally got the complete score on 2 cds. Sadly, by that time I burned out on it...
So rockhound...your argument is that the score is better because the movie is worse? That's a new one, gotta admit... :D<br><br>to Armageddon, do it! The complete score, if you can. It's incredible!To Edmund Meinerts,<br><br>I admit I never really got the chance to listen to the entire At World's End score. But now you sir got me interested and I will check it out.<br><br>Cheers.To rockhound, <br><br>With all due respect, sir, that's a stupid statement. Very stupid. Guess you're mad that Rockhound wasn't the main character. How is Willis acting in those scenes bad? He's not overacting, he's not crying-screaming like a little girl. His character is actually very grounded. In the scene with Liv Tyler at the end, he is actually watching a picture of his real daughter. It makes it all the more real. He's very quiet and the performance is realistic. Nothing over-the-top. And people absolutely love that scene. Go to YouTube and read all the comments under the video. So, having said all of that, what exactly is your problem with it? You want him to go all crazy emotional like Nic Cage in Face/Off? Is that it?King Arthur is the perfect example. A terrible script but a great scoreAfter I saw the movie....very great movie & very great scores, better than the first scores!! And the theme for Poppy is also very good!!
Well there's also the track where Izzy's transformers dies, a few action tracks not included that I'd be interested to hear, but you're right, the track I'm most interested in is We Have To Go's film version. The extra strings in the small excerpt where Megatron's arm gets cut off, and the ones added to the main theme really give the song a more heroic and intense tone.Yep. These tracks are amazingOnly tracks that come to mind that aren't in the OST are a variation of Seglass when introducing Edmund, and the film version of We Have To Go.<br><br>Hell, the OST has more music than the movie.Daniel Pemberton seems like a twat.I own the CD and I agree there are times in the score where it's so bombastic it distorts your speakers.<br><br>Still, I felt this was a great score from Zimmer.  It was peak Russian sounding chorus time for Hans and the action cues were better than other scores of this time like The Rock.

I think the soundtrack is nice enough, like a mix of prince of egypt and gladiator (mainly due to Lisa Gerrard of course). I didn't expect anything ground-breaking new of a mini-series about the Bible, tbh.
This will keep me above water til Man of steel drops ;)

Bravery March... Lorne Balfe tweet it!

After a first listening of the score, I am mitigated. We really have the feeling to listen to a score 100 % " Lorne Balfe ". Not that I don't appreciate the talents of the second of Zimmer, but I believe that it will be necessary to wait for " Man of Steel " to have a really personal work of Zimmer.

The album is in any case very pleasant to listen to, mesmerizing, and which arouses a certain nostalgia listening the voice of Lisa Gerrard, always so magnificent.

"Faith" remains the cornerstone of the album because it really puts the orientation taken by the accomplices during the putting in music of this series: a purely dramatic style with ethnic tones.

I note that "In the Beginning" shares many notes with "Terminator" main theme! Weird...
It will not prevent it from becoming, in my opinion, the most popular track of the album thanks to its epic and majestic side. Furthermore, it is, I think, the track which sounds most "Zimmer" on this album (even if Hybrid Soldier will doubtless say to me that it is the 100 % Balfe ;-)).

The tracks which I shall associate then are "Roma's Lament" (theme without Lisa) and "The Nativity" (Theme with Lisa) and who calls back to what extent the album is very done made (10 tracks separate them).
Moreover, in "The Nativity", we can wait for madam Gerrard's best contribution. It is also the track which we could listen in one of the trailers.

Many tracks are more atmospheric moments, other side very representative of the album. It will be necessary to wait to listen to the soundtrack entirely to see if Zimmer&Cie didn't sacrifice more crunchy cues.

To conclude, this new album of Zimmer (And Balfe or the opposite:)) arrive appointed where we didn't really wait for it. Being focused on "Man of Steel", I had personally darkened it and the result is very promising.
An album maybe less catchy because of its less memorable themes and its orchestrations sometimes a little bit lazy.

Nevertheless, it is with the guilty pleasure that I found one more time this association " Zimmer-Balfe " which, even if sometimes uneven always rests an interesting moment. He holds this flavor which makes that in my opinion, we can listen to it longer.

Whaaooo! I managed to speak about a score of Zimmer without quoting Gladiator, Da Vinci, the prince of Egypt, pearl to harbor, the red line (shit, mischief managed! :D). You will understand well the influences (or rather the resemblances) emanating from this score. I shall add a resemblance with "The Passion of the Christ" (or then it is the subject which disturbs my judgment).

To finish, buy it and listen it while waiting for "Complete" which I hope will be born!

Note-3,5 / 5

Ps- Sorry for my indistinct English.

In reading all that is here, I must admit the criticisms of Hans and Lorne are quite strong, and I'm not certain as to why. It seems like if the output is not some bombastic output, or if his (Hans') work is not singular, it's a disappointment. What gives? I personally think this is a wonderful, inspired and spirited work. Seems like the quotient for Hans has been set unreasonably high. This score is the eventual outcome of a terrific collabation between Hans, Lorne, and Lisa, written to underscore a profound religious film. It fits the series perfectly, so far. For those that "expected more", what does that mean? There are themes, variety, collaboration, structure, and a musical spirit that connects to the religious aspects -- who said it must be overtly precise.....rather, quite profound in just about every place so far, simple in others, and overall, the just right match to the scripture it was meant to support.

Hans (and Lorne, by extension in this example) has an evolving style. Everyone was slobbering over TDKR. This is just as excellent -- shame the score on CD is only a small representation of the larger work. Certain if that was available, the critics would be at bay.

Hale2013-03-06 13:37:12
Yes, this is a wonderful, inspired and spirited work, like you said.
I believe that it is really necessary to look at the series to be made an objective opinion.
In spite of the negative points, warning, this score remains a success. Indeed, there are themes (not rather memorable in my humble opinion but appropriated by the way).

To finish, last two minutes of the track "Faith" are simply fabulous!!!

Only for that, the score deserves to be listened to!

Maybe somebody had previously forgotten to eliminate those lengthy silences from the beginning and end of the cues?

Hybrid Soldier2013-03-05 08:35:11
Yeah I think so I was probably given the length of a pre-master version or something... :P

Anonymous2013-03-05 11:10:58
What a disappointment. I expected so much of this. Hans Zimmer, Lisa Gerard, Lorne Balfe, epic story material, lyrical writing...

What I expected was an album full of tracks like cue 15. But unfortunately most of the album is atmospheric filler and no action material. I've should have known if Hans is involved all cool action music is scrapped, are bonus tracks or end up in an app instead of the album...

at 0:30 you can hear the score of TDKR part of "deshi basara" :o

Mike2013-03-01 00:16:36
Ha, I didn't even notice that.

tim2013-03-01 10:07:10
while i'm liking the direction of the score, that it goes more into that emotional epic sound and they're moving a bit again into the beautiful and typical rcp sound, i have to say, that this track is so uninspired. they're trying to build up emotions and beautiness in that track, but there's no structure, no melody, nothing at all in it. everything sounds so randomly...

please don't get me wrong, i already said, in fact i'm liking what i'm hearing, but this could have been soooo much better then what we got. because of that what i said, that there is no structure or melody in it. it sounds more like lorne has done this, and having had only 5 minutes to do something "epic".

with zimmer, balfe and lisa, i've expected at least some more elaborated cues...

Mike2013-03-01 10:17:34
I don't really expect too much elaborate stuff from Zimmer these days. He's not really into that anymore, it seems.

Macejko2013-03-01 10:39:00
I completely, completely, completely agree with you, tim. Twelve minutes of nothing, basically.

Hybrid Soldier2013-03-01 11:23:32
I think on the contrary it's a good balance with, say, an overstructured score like Sherlock.

Then again, it's just 13 minutes of HOURS of music written for the show. And from clips we heard, it has more "defined" themes & cues.

I just fear the OST will lack the action material and focuse on the more spiritual material. We'll see !

But I really like that suite, even if it's not built like Moriarty, Bane or the Gladiator Waltz... ;)

tim2013-03-01 11:37:21
@ hybrid: if "faith" is one of the less interesting cues of the whole score, then i can live with that :D

but still very sad to hear the final result of the cue, as it has such a high potential to be a masterpiece cue. it began very epic, but that's it ^^ followed by random notes, which are getting louder and louder.

as much as i love lornes work, he's a huge talent and hope to hear from him more in the future, i think hans is letting him doing TOO much of his own work. lorne still needs that "little bit" that gives a cue a recognition or a melody you can remember of. his work always sounds to me like being only half ready. i can feel how he wants to put so much love and so many ideas in a cue, but in the end, there's not much to be find sadly. but i still have hope that his lump is being cracked...

and as for hans, for gods sake, do your music alone. i'm missing the times where i've been shocked by the beautiness of your music. it's been just too long now since the last score, which wowed me away :/

Edmund Meinerts2013-03-01 12:02:44
@tim: Asking Hans Zimmer to do his music alone is like asking James Horner not to rip bits out of his older scores, or like asking John Williams not to use a crapload of brass fanfares. It isn't going to fact, the last time it happened was probably the early 90s. Sorry. ;)

Then again, I agree with your sentiments on Lorne Balfe, who has yet to write the one score that proves beyond a doubt his full talent. Maybe if he wasn't so busy writing half of Zimmer's scores he'd have more time to focus on his solo projects (seriously, does the man sleep?). And, I also agree with your sentiments on Zimmer himself...the last time I was TRULY amazed by a score of his was Angels & Demons.

tim2013-03-01 12:09:42
@ edmund: ha, yes i'm aware that zimmer is using a LOT of proteges who are writing for him etc. but still, his "older" scores had that sound which gave you the feeling, that at least the themes and melodies are from zimmer himself. nowadays, every score doesn't sound anymore if zimmer is really involved in these scores, but only others - not even anymore any themes at all etc.

i'm agreeing with you, if lorne would have taken his time for his solo-projects, then he could grew out of his role i think. but still, hearing all the new zimmer scores, gives me the feeling i'm hearing lorne all the way and not zimmer at all, so zimmers score ARE lornes solo projects ;P

Hybrid Soldier2013-03-01 12:57:03
On the contrary, HZ is much more involved since Begins than he was after Thin Red Line... ;)

And Lorne has tons of solo projects, just check his filmography on this very site !

Miklůs2013-03-01 13:04:18
I partially agree with you that there is not a really theme in it. However the music is beautiful. Just like faith itself: It's not concrete (like a theme) but it's miraculous at the same time. So I think the music perfectly reflects to the topic. And that's the key thing, this is film music after all.

milo2013-03-01 20:37:21
I'll be honest here, as an avid Zimmer, I find it difficult to get into these new pieces. The rush track seemed pretty lazy as well.

milo2013-03-01 20:37:55

Edmund Meinerts2013-03-01 23:44:10
@Hybrid: I know Lorne has a lot of solo projects...hence why I said he ought to FOCUS on them rather than having to do so much legwork for Zimmer! And also why I asked whether the man ever sleeps...last year he did (if I'm not missing anything) The Sweeney, Assassin's Creed 3, Skylanders: Giants and significant amounts of additional music (co-composition, really) for The Dark Knight Rises and Madagascar 3 (for the latter one I'd risk saying he probably did more than Hans himself, though that's just a hunch). That's a ridiculous amount of work for one guy to do! And I'm not saying any of it was bad, but I'd rather have him devote more time to perfecting his solo works and have Zimmer go it alone for once...despite it never going to happen.

Mike2013-03-02 03:25:59
If it's any consolation, Edmund, I don't think Lorne worked on Man of Steel... :P

Stygian2013-03-02 05:46:40
@Al Bundy: yeah. i was the one who pointed that out. check the comments.

Edmund Meinerts2013-03-02 21:27:01
@Mike: No...but I know that Atli Orvarsson is for certain (serves him right after his laughably weak Hansel and Gretel score!), and probably some others too. But damn, how long has it been since the last Zimmer score with NO Balfe involvement? Da Vinci Code or something?

Deakins2013-03-04 18:06:00
The end of "Faith" (11:00 to end) is is really magnificent!
Sounds like Thin Red Line/Pearl Harbor/Da Vinci big drama cues with a small of pinch of Lisa Gerrard ! Splendid...

Thanks Elegy! Too bad it's so short.

Mike2013-03-04 23:17:22
I believe Hans incessantly lets Lorne do stuff because, as he said once, he "wants everyone to know Lorne Balfe is a good composer"...

That's all well and good, but if Lorne is gonna be doing half of Hans' projects like TDKR, he should get co-composer credit (not just "additional music"). I'd say the same about Geoff Zanelli for the Pirates movies.

Jonathan Rochat2013-03-04 23:44:41
First and last tracks are good ("Roma's Lament", "Nativity", "Creation Choral"). The rest is boring. Better than last Zimmer's work, but far far from "Da Vinci" or "Prince of Egypt"...

It kind of pisses me off that Lorne Balfe has always gazillion projects to do, but other composers of RCP have merely two or three every year. Where is the justice in that? How does this system even work?

BTW there's a little problem with the cover. Lisa didn't write anything, she's a vocal performer. They'll probably update it removing her, or changing the credit.

And about how that score was done, it's really co-work between Hans & Lorne, writing themes & pieces together. Not a split work.
