I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!
Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feeling
Mancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picassowhy his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?Modern Warfare 2 is a lot in the album!<br><br>- It's Good Shit Lieatenant<br>- We're Dangerous People<br>- What Else You Got (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- God's Gun (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- We Ride Together, We Die Together (Bad Boys Remix)We're Dangerous People
Call of the Wild coming by Hollywood Records, that means, digital.Bloodshoot coming from Sony ClassicalCan confirm is in the albumavailable in nz itunes store. on the cover its correct now....motion picture score.What was Hans’ role in the treatment of Mantovani’s “Charmaine”. It sounds like the original, but cleaner, clearer, & without the limitations of 50/60’s recording technology. I’ve been fascinated by this piece for 25+ years, as it seems almost a precursor to Jarre & even Zimmer’s electronic music, while being entirely orchestral. Links to info appreciated.

This score was a surprise, didn't expected nothing for it, I did hear it cause some friends recommend it to me, it's so much better what did I expected, have excellent gothic and romantic themes. Who told terrible movies like this can't have a good score


trent easton navarro2014-02-04 09:26:23
Yeah, it's a wonderful score! On of the best of 2013. And obviously you are not a fan of Jerry Goldsmith, otherwise you'd have known terrible films can have amazing scores ;)

After listening to it a couple of times, I must admit it is a great piece of work... A great theme, nice arrangements all over the score. I love it!

Wasn't there a release that was on iTunes earlier that was 22 tracks?

Does anyone else think Atli looks a bit like Jeremy Renner? :p


MacArthur2013-11-17 23:48:59
Not Seeing it.


Mike2013-11-18 01:56:29
I can kinda see it. I feel like Geoff Zanelli looks like Robert Downey Jr.


MacArthur2013-11-18 04:05:59
Now That I do see.

Correct track order?


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-18 21:42:22
Correct order :

01 - Mortal Instruments - The Opening
02 - Where's The Cup?
03 - Madame Dorothea
04 - J.C.
05 - She's Not A Mundane
06 - Pretty Far From Brooklyn
07 - The Mortal Cup
08 - City Of Bones
09 - Magnus Bane
10 - Vampires & Werewolves
11 - The Portal
12 - Midnight In The Garden
13 - Valentine
14 - Demon Doll
15 - The Clave's Curse
16 - You're A Morgenstern
17 - The Angel Rune
18 - Close The Dome
19 - Your Secret Is Safe
20 - Clary's Theme

I'm sure about this one, just "She's Not A Mundane" isn't featured in the movie, but if there's a place it should be, it's right here. Clary's Theme being of course a suite (the ending part is featured a couple of times in the movie).

Just saw the movie yesterday... Not horrible, I must say. But Alti's score felt repetitive, and apart from ''Clary's Theme'' on the album, it wasn't so amazing... Alti has done done better..

Best score Atli has ever done! Nice orchestra & choir.


Macejko2013-08-28 12:58:09
Actually, I think it's pretty boring. I expected more from Atli.

Very Good Score! Clary's Theme is a very nice cue!
