Cool Hybrid! Been at the concert in Oberhausen last Saturday. A lot better then expected to be honest. Pedro's Oogway's Ascend was very good, Pedro outdid himself there (at the 2nd Zimmer concerts I thought he wasnt that great compared to Richard).<br><br>Yeah! The hell are the other comments about though? The Last Stand is miles ahead of X2. You weren't even saying TLS was the best X-men score, you were just saying it's Powell's best score. Man people are dumbHi, I want to add some seconds of 8 track for the background of my small documentary about races, my first one, is it possibile to ask for copyright? Should I write to some email addresses?<br>I'm kind of the same way, even on a personal level. The synth and power anthems, even from the Media Ventures era, is just kind of getting old to me. The incessant momentum, the lack of thematic progression, it all wears on you eventually.I think you really nailed how I feel about this score. I don’t personally mind the tense electronic elements (this is music that I can enjoy on its own level) but I do feel let down by the lack of a theme or any solid motif to anchor the music. Especially in the emotional cues.<br><br>The one thing that I keep coming back to is how this sounds so much like something Johann Johansson would have written. I actually really like his music style, but it is pretty jarring to see Zimmer do minimalism on this level. No objections here, but I can’t wait to get some exciting Zimmer music again.
Not for nothing but it's kinda odd how Zimmer has been declining ever since, IMO, his collaboration with Wallfisch on Blade Runner 2049.... <br><br>Honestly, I've been straying towards John Carpenter's Halloween 2018 and horror synth ever since....is Zimmer retiring or something? Because I'm finding myself not into him so much, anymore.I honestly wasn't expecting much from this film on a musical level, but some tracks that are available are OK to listen to. McQueen has never been a proponent of larger-scale thematic music in his scores, he seems to be a mood-inspired person, and Zimmer can do that very, very well. <br><br>Coming back to the music, Zimmer seems to have embraced his textural roots. 2018 has been all about texture really in the action films, i.e. Black Panther's percussion layers, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Widows. Thematically, there seems to be a solemn progression for Marcus that reappears in "My Son", that relies on familiar elements (i.e. drone strings layered on top of each other, lower bass accompaniment), and some of the action textures in "We Have A Job To Do" and "Perimeter Check" is a nice callback to the Media Ventures style of things. <br><br>I'm admittedly disappointed with the fact that there is nothing beyond residually, well-anchored momentum and tension to the score,and the album length is shocking. But it is what it is. I love the underlying, throbbing synth bass ripples, I've always had a soft spot for them. <br><br>Honestly, it's a one time listen for me. I'm more excited about his dual superhero bonanza return next year- Wonder Woman 1984 and X-Men Dark Phoenix. I'm definitely not expecting him to use John Ottman's brilliant theme for the latter, although I will definitely be impressed if by slight chance, he does. The "Money" is quite soothing in a melancholy way. "The Calm Before The Storm" uses some worthwhile sombre piano treading that I'm always a stickler for.Come to Bratislava, Slovakia too.I wonder with all of the Easter eggs if Jackman will incorporate some character themes like possibly the Imperial March for Storm Troopers Or Disney themed for the Disney characters@Anonymous on the Blu-ray it should have surround sound. Just that it's out on iTunes in Australia already - which is how I got it - and iTunes bonus features are obviously only in stereo.<br><br>@Ahmad - the benefit here is really all the film version edits of the cues we already have on the album. And some of them are quite different from the album ones....<br><br>The tracklist I came up with for now for the iso score. Total runtime is 2:08:16.<br><br>A Storm Is Coming (Logos) / Julia / Good Evening, Mr. Hunt	4:51			<br>Self-Destruct	0:23			<br>Plutonium Trade / A Terrible Choice	6:14			<br>The Manifesto	1:46			<br>Fallout (Main Titles) / Your Mission (Part 1)	2:07			<br>Your Mission (Part 2)	2:21			<br>Free Fall (Part 1)	1:57			<br>Free Fall (Part 2)	2:14			<br>Grand Palais / Consequences Of Love	2:01			<br>Bathroom	6:12			<br>No Pain, No Gain (Outro) / As Ugly As They Come 	2:09			<br>I'll See You In My Dreams / Widow Bar	2:33			<br>The White Widow / Should You Choose To Accept...	5:38			<br>Busy Day Tomorrow	0:41			<br>Framing Ethan / The Exchange	6:37			<br>Escape Through Paris	6:11			<br>Steps Ahead	1:11			<br>Je Suis Désolé	1:04			<br>Unfinished Business	0:34			<br>Did You Ever Choose Not To?	1:51			<br>You're Mine Now	0:30			<br>We Are Never Free	4:52			<br>Widow In London	1:45				<br>Trapped	3:14				<br>The Mission Is Terminated	2:02			<br>No Hard Feelings / The Exhortation	6:46			<br>Stairs & Rooftops	6:25			<br>Kashmir	7:10				<br>Julia (Reprise) / Fate Whispers To The Warrior	5:06			<br>And The Warrior Whispers Back	8:20			<br>I Am The Storm (Part 1)	4:12			<br>I Am The Storm (Part 2)	1:21			<br>Scalpel & Hammer	3:47			<br>Cutting On One	1:25			<br>The Last Resort 1:48			<br>There's No Reason To Be Sorry / Mission: Accomplished (Curtain Call)	4:51	<br>End Credits	6:28
I wonder what the quality on the disc will be like but definitely not expecting lossless. Three commentaries and the isolated score and language tracks. That's a lot and the movie is not short lol. <br><br>In general, I don't think we're missing much to begin with (but it's really cool and should be done more often). There's a cool bit where the "Syndicate" theme was used I think in the film version of "Escape Through Paris" and the album version doesn't have that bit.ur kidding. is it like the last jedi? why cant it be in surround soundI believe it's stereo at around 160kbps (since it's a stream from iTunes Extras)What quality does the isolated score from iTunes have?Have any of the slate titles surfaced for this? Would be useful when dividing up that (brilliant!) isolated score into tracks. Got it off iTunes earlier this week and pretty much been on repeat all week, so awesome.
I wish. I live like 15 miles away from Golden 1 Center.come to Sacremento,california!!!No, you lying...The tracks Marcus and My Son have some very strong Morricone resemblance. They're similar how the Italian Maestro usually introduces/builds up many of his slow and heartbreaking melodies. The difference is that Zimmer doesn't really build up a theme, therefore it sounds as a long introduction of a never written Morricone theme. Still, I like it.I always wanted to know why that is? when you hear music in the movie composed by Hans or company they sometimessound different, or are not in the soundtrack. Perfect example the Batman trilogy and specially Man of steel. John powell has a lot of missing music as well.

Hey Hybrid, some leak of the other guys would be great :D

Something like this here :D


Macejko2015-03-10 23:16:35
Some people would just take and take and take... and then have the balls to ask for more in the end.


Felix2015-03-10 23:25:31
@Macejko: Because it's coming ever new movies, also new scores ;D


Macejko2015-03-10 23:40:21
I know, but you must understand that the complete ones aren't our rights nor privileges. It's often by sheer luck that we get to hear them. If I'd get, say, Game of Thrones complete score, I wouldn't be immediately asking for Pacific Rim, because I'd be too busy drooling over that GoT CS.


Macejko2015-03-10 23:44:28
I'm certainly no stranger to asking shit I have no business or right having myself, but this right here bugs me nevertheless. It's MoS and Lone Ranger, for crying out loud. People should be going apeshit over it finally being leaked, not ask for more.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-11 10:02:29
Yeah, I totally agree with you, Macejko. Two huge completes just leaked (three if you count On Stranger Tides, although we already had the demos for that and, well, the score sucks, so I didn't). Aren't people happy with that for now?

Also, I HIGHLY doubt that asking Hybrid will actually get anything done. Even if this is only an "(almost) official site", I don't think you make many friends among composers by leaking their complete scores onto the Internet.

Aaaalso, Frozen Ground is already a pretty repetitive album...I honestly can't imagine a complete score adding much of anything.

I really really want that a complete score will come out soon &#128525;

Complete Score please!!!

Radik reply Replies: 0 || 2013-09-06 21:21:29
Lorne made by his IMHO chilling-atmosphere music great experience. And now I look towards to Beyond: Two Souls (with Hans) <3 that would be EPIC. Shame you werent already on Heavy Rain :)

I want or wish to Lorne compose Assassin's Creed Movie, it would be perfect.. his music in AC is awesome :)

And another one !


I'm losing tracks with the TONS of releases these days, but that's good news !! :)


Adriaan2013-07-08 21:37:14
It does say something when YOU are losing track, the RC-expert :-)

Also, this looks like a very interesting release!


Joshua2013-07-08 21:48:52
I feel like Balfe scores alot of these low budget type of action films. My question is, why? Someone as talanted as Balfe should be headlining big blockbuster scores on his own.


Hybrid Soldier2013-07-08 21:52:58
I think he's working on big blockbusters quite a lot with HZ, no wonder he wants to go elsewhere when he's on his own. :)


And since he doesn't seek eternal glory...
