@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>
Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.Was the producersi haven't understood the fact, that Lorne was involved in this. Can someone explain it for me? Was the director not satisfied with Richters music? Was the deadline too near? Or what was the reason why they have brought Lorne to this project?"The Wanderer", "Event Horizon", "You Have To Let Me Go" and "Tuesday (Voiceless)" = WOW WOW WOW!!!
Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;<br><br>1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3<br>2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.
I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(I know this is probably the wrong place for it but I'd love if Hnas would one day release a CD of just his demo sketches and suites. I find hearing the original intentions/ideas even when rough really fascinating.11.22.19Yeah lol one way or another... :P

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

Planes is such a nice track! :)

"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). :)

Nice to see Mancina and his team back. I am pleasantly surprised to see the score is getting released too!
