For me, a theme is a distinguishable motif or piece of music that is related to a specific location, event or most commonly character, and that the viewer notices as such. If your score contains 20 themes that are never repeated in a similar form and are so uncharacteristic that they all sound the same, I'm just calling that orchestra noise. And I don't see any appeal in that kind of scoring...Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.
I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...<br>That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.BOOKLET CREDITS (From The Album):<br><br>Score Composed, Produced And Mixed By<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Additional Music By<br>ALJOSCHA CHRISTENHUB<br>ANTONIO DI IORIO<br><br>Orchestra Conducted By<br>JOHN ASHTON THOMAS<br><br>Technical Score Engineer<br>ALEX RUGER<br><br>Additional Programming By<br>EMILY RICE<br>JACOPO TRIFONE<br><br>Music Editor<br>SIMON CHANGER<br><br>Assistant Music Editors<br>BEN SMITHERS<br>ARABELLA WINTER<br><br>Music Consultant<br>BOB BADAMI<br><br>Score Orchestrated And Copied By<br>JONATHAN BEARD<br>EDWARD TRYBEK<br>HENRI WILKINSON<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Librarian<br>JILL STREATER<br><br>Orchestra Contractors<br>ISOBEL GRIFFITHS<br>SUSSIE GILLIS<br><br>Orchestral Recording Engineer And Mixer<br>NICK WOLLAGE<br><br>Orchestra Recorded At<br>AIR STUDIO<br><br>Air Studios Managers<br>ALISON BURTON<br>CHARLOTTE MATTHEWS<br>LUCY MATTHEWS<br><br>Music Production Services<br>MICHIEL GROENEVELD<br><br>Agent<br>AMOS NEWMAN<br><br>Legal Representation<br>DAVID ALTSCHUL<br><br>Music Recorded <br>6-7 January 2018<br>At<br>AIR STUDIOS, London<br><br>Score Published By<br>UNITED LION MUSIC, INC.

why hybrid when lorne himself confirmed it? <.<@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.
I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent newsNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(

Never heard any of the scores by Mancia but this one is awesome.

Please, suggest me some more of his good stuff.


isildur2013-09-20 17:17:59
The starting of the track "Leg 7" sounded familiar to me. Anyone felt the same?


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-07 16:36:30
The beginning of "Leg 7" is oddly identical to the track "Knife to a Gun Fight" from Michael Giacchino's Mission Impossible 4 score. I wonder if it might just be a coincidence, but it's definitely there. Weird, huh.

As for Mancina recommendations, he did a ton of really fun, thematic scores in the 90s...Speed, Bad Boys, Twister, Speed 2 etc. Those are pretty much all great. Tarzan is a strong score too, if you can find the score-only promo (apparently it was more important for the original album to have four versions of "Two Worlds, One Family" than to properly represent the score). And he did a score to a Japanese anime called Blood+ (yes, really) which is really good as well. Mancina's one of my favorites from MV because he never forgets to put in memorable themes and a sense of fun!


isildur2013-10-08 13:34:15
Wow! I didn't know Bad Boys was Mancia's. I always liked that score. Thanks, Meinerts.


MrZimmerFan2013-10-08 13:36:09
Speed and Speed 2, my favorites of Mancina


Luffy2014-03-25 03:05:26
How can you forget Blood+, Divas theme, I mean its one of his best tracks and score

"Ein Crop Duster Can Race" was co-produced by Mark Mancina, so I guess that song should technically be marked as "Score", which should add up to a total of about 41 minutes and 38 seconds of "Score".

I'm usually not one to rant about this stuff, but can someone please explain to me how the hell does this have such a low rating in this site since pretty much before it was even released??
Not only that, but how can this have a lower rating than that absurdly missed opportunity that was the Man Of Steel score? I guess that alone speaks for the state of film music today...
I'm not saying that everyone was to love this score and give it 5 stars or anything like that, but jesus, doesn't make any sense to me...


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-09 08:49:39
I just rated this 5 stars and whaddya know, it bumped the average up to 3. :p

The ratings on this site are weird though, I'd say just ignore them.


Mike2013-08-09 17:24:43
Indeed, Edmund, the ratings on this site are weird.

Mancina is back. The Score is amazing!!!!

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2013-08-07 22:31:06
If the trailer alone was any indication, then this is a five star score.


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-07 22:51:57
The trailer cue (which is the first track, "Planes") is by far the best thing in the score but there are a lot of fun action cues that sound like Speed/Twister crossed with Henry Jackman action cues from Puss in Boots/Wreck-it Ralph. And the love theme in "Dusty and Ishani" has to be heard to be believed...it's like a Bollywood version of Days of Thunder. XD

Mark Mancina - Planes EPIC!

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 2 || 2013-08-07 17:37:38
AMAZING score. Anyone who loves classic 90s Media Ventures music will absolutely adore this. It's like 90s Mancina with a bit of John Powell/Henry Jackman's orchestral style for animations thrown in. For me, probably the best score of the year so far, and certainly the best main theme.


Evenstar2013-08-07 17:58:07
Indeed. Was a bit confused about the indian themes, but looks like there is a plane from there so it makes sense. Nice work Mark Mancina!


Prott2013-08-07 18:38:34
Agreed, it's a fantastic score! It really brings back that "Twister" feeling... definitely my favourite score from animations (together with HtTYD and LK). :)
