No no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!
Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!
She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?
To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolingerthats true

Empire Magazine posted a Spotify playlist which includes tracks that Gareth Edwards used as inspiration for his new Godzilla movie. The playlist includes the tracks "The Lagoon" and "Air" from The Thin Red Line, but they list Gavin Greenaway as the composer of those track. Is this legit? Are those tracks mostly his compositions?

trent easton navarro2014-04-26 12:45:08
With film scores Spotify often credits the conductor instead of the composer. If you look The Thin Red Line up on spotify you'll see all tracks are credited to Greenaway. A couple of Elfman scores are credited to Artie Kane

Gavin Greenaway2018-11-30 15:34:50
As Trent says, Spotify credits the artists rather than the composer. As a conductor, I often get top artist billing when the orchestra is a session group - which is frustrating to me too - but until there is a universally accepted track list format with artist and composer listed separately, there will continue to be this confusion.

As conductor of the TRL score, I can promise you that Hans wrote every note of those tracks!

well hybrid, we understand that you're having a job and not all the time to build up here all the content. but it's been 3 years since the question of "567" and yet there is no site for the complete score with the credits and all. but yet there is immediately the site up when br2049, ww, bvs and co leaked. so what's the point with ttrl? too much work? political? no knowledge/infos? lazyness? not your taste of music?

mpolonest123 2018-09-03 17:13:44
Having this get an official release would be pretty great, although it’s going to be interesting to see how the record company would actually handle the ENORMOUS amount of material that was recorded for the film, especially considering it is at least 7 hours.

The sessions alone have endless alternates and takes, not to mention the long “drums and bowls” tracks that I’m guessing were for Malick to use in editing.

Is the wonderful music used for Witt's death scene a Zimmer original or is it the work of another composer? It has been wrongly attributed as Arvo Part's Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten but this is not correct (although that piece is sampled in an earlier part of the score)

Paul Maher Jr.2015-03-25 16:14:51
Malick's original temp track for Witt's death was Benjamin Britten. He wanted Zimmer to replicate that track as closely as he could, but it never achieved satisfaction. The same could be said for the section where Charles Ives is tacked on to Zimmer's score in the film. "The Unanswered Question" was the original temp track Malick used, and again he wanted Zimmer to achieve something closely resembling the spirit and feel of Ives' work, but just couldn't. His version is heard on the official soundtrack. Malick opted to leave Ives in the film.

kent882015-03-26 15:41:35
Isn't that little cue based on the orchestrated Jisas Yu Holem Laef Blong Mi? (Which is heard early in the film and was used in the trailer). Reportedly Klaus Badelt was the one who rearranged that one.

Zimson reply Replies: 1 || 2014-05-29 07:24:42
Did Hans have something to do with "God U Tekem Laef Blong Mi"?

Paul Maher Jr.2015-03-25 16:12:20
These Melanesian recordings were commissioned by Malick himself. After principal shooting, Malick and a recording engineer named Claude Letessier went into Guadalcanal and recorded hours of these chants, which were taught to them by missionaries in the 18th and 19th centuries. After the film was released theatrically, Malick produced a CD of most of what they found in the bush, so to speak.

Paul Maher Jr2012-11-24 17:28:08
This may well be legit, but it also reflects music made for the edited cut of the film and not the hours of unedited film that also had cues written specifically for them.

I happen to have Fox's cue sheet and the titles are different. The list above also lacks the several Lupica/Scott/ beam cues that Malick has also used in The New World, The Tree of Life and To the Wonder.

I do wish that this was released. it is almost criminal to hold out on us.

Bioscope2012-11-26 06:32:33
Ok, there's another cue list out there from FOX? Please show us this cue sheet so we can compare...

PM2012-11-26 18:16:13
It isn't "out there." It's in my possession. The cue sheet reflects the final edit of the film. The one presented here represents longer cues corresponding to the everchanging edits of the film.

Also, there are variants. For example, what we know of as "Journey to the Line" has, in the film, Charles Ives tagged on to it, which is the original temp music Malick used. He wanted Zimmer to compose something as close as possible to Ives, but apparently Malick chose to go with Ives. The way it was composed is represented on the official release. Also, "Journey to the Line" was considered the first piece of music accepted by Malick as aligning with what he wanted. Before that, he had an array of classical music compositions, like Benjamin Britten for example (used during the scene of Witt's death) for hsi temp score. Zimmer's music was also influenced by the Melanesian songs recorded by Claude Lettesier at Guadalcanal. Then there is the Cosmic Beam and the Kodo drums Malick was fond of that found there way into Media Ventures. So, Zimmer's job was difficult, but made even moreso by the influx of many other musical elements brought into the fold of the post-production process.

When Zimmer said that he considers The Thin Red Line one of his best scores i was like WTF, OK it is good, but amongst the best?!

And now when I heard whole recording sessions and I couldn't agree more. Only when you hear the whole thing you will understand that this is THE masterpiece! Unfortunately you won't get much from the official soundtrack which is too shallow in my opinion, so I truly hope someone will release this on as much discs as needed, because it IS worthy of that!

to make sense of this list, go by this: 1m00 is the cue number. The first number "1" means reel 1, the "m" means music. The cues are numbered in sequence in the order they play in the film. Some composers like to restart the numbering with each new reel - e.g. 1m12, 1m13, followed by 2m1, 2m2 etc. Hans like likes all the numbers to run in one sequence - e.g. 6m22, 7m23. Missing numbers were dropped or combined cues.

This list is late in the editing process, probably one of the final edits before they dropped Bead's death and shortened the sequence where Witt travels alone to another island. The overall narrative as it was released still stands with these exceptions.

The Beam cues are missing with the exception of the "Cosmic Beam Drone" and "Concerto for Beam" which is John Powell's orchestration of a dropped cue called "Peaceful Beam." The Lupica/Beam sessions were done separately from Zimmer's work with music editor Lee Scott and probably totals about 5 hours worth of recordings by itself (the Beam was difficult to record to any degree of satisfaction because of the distortion it created). Lupica's original tapes from the 70s, including "Sit Back and Relax," had to be baked and then reedited for use in the film and trailer. So, out of thirty hours of music on the Avid, it was dwindled down to 5 in the dubbing stage.

Scorefan2012-11-27 06:02:04
@Areozz suck all our dicks!!!!!!! Finally, we can hear the recording sessions. It's truly a masterpiece. And by the way, if you think you are the only "special person" to have this, sorry, go with Hybrid and cry both, because in 3..2..1.. Hybrid will post "This is old news and it's fake, that's not the tru recording sessions" and then he will post the recording sessions just to add "his famous edit suites" to say "those suites are the original no one else" and bla bla bla....

Areozz2012-11-27 13:36:09
@Scorefan: you are a total dumbass. Do you realize that? You are being a complete ignoramus right now. Don't you know that these sessions have been leaked? Of course I did not have this score beforehand, but I have it now, because someone posted it for the public to dig into it. Idiot.

Your assumption made based on my post completely and utterly makes no sense at all. Please reevaluate what you have said.

Real Scorefan2012-11-28 00:50:12
To @Areozz what the fuck is going on here!!!!!!!!! i don´t know who is using my name, but like you say Areozz, it's completely bullshit. I know you are not an elitist, also, the recording sessions have been leaked in these days, and we have different point of views, but your comment i understand, but no the that shit from Scorefan

Areozz2012-11-28 01:49:20
I'll take your word, Scorefan. I've seen you around here. That post didn't seem to make any sense; just a common troll. It's so awful that people can steal names here.

It's a fake!!!! The genre oft he tracks are tagged with "colonne sonore", which is what the fake Inception Recording Sessions and Sherlock Holmes 2 edits were tagged with from THAT PARTICULAR BLOG. Nice try Joker!!!

Mr. Fate2012-10-28 20:23:39
Although..."colonne sonore" just translates to "soundtracks" in Italian. Although, it does seem like a strange coincidence that the three soundtracks in question here would all be tagged with the Italian word for soundtracks.

@JokerXXX: Burn in hell, you bastard! You've committed countless terrible sins!

I'm Italian yes but what!? Why can't I use my language!? Why I must be The owner of that blog!? Must I born in hell because I'm Italian!? WAKE UP GUYS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SCORES NOT ABOUT LANGUAGES!! ARE YOU CREAZY YOU ARE THE MAD ONES YOU'VE ACCUSED ME FOR SOMETHING THAT I DID NOT! Who are the bastards now!?

Question to you, JokerXXX: tell me what is another synonym for words like changed, altered, modified?

Mitch2012-10-29 00:18:50
It's a simple situation JokerXXX... either share the score or don't.

timmy2012-10-29 08:06:22
after reading such stupid and violent comments from mr. charles and mr. fate (are you the same guys?), i hope joker will never leak this.

to call this fake, even it is the real deal, and to say he should burn in hell is so f4cking stupid, i just can't find the right words for it.

don't hear at them joker, they're just frustrated that they don't have those scores and screaming out loud like psychos -.-

No private websites yes, but hiding informations to the population. So same like germany before and china now ;)

Edmund Meinerts2012-10-26 17:59:15
Comparing a fan website to Nazi Germany? Classy, guys. And can we just install an automatic filter that deletes every post using the word "elitist"?

This website already tells us fans a lot more than we'd otherwise know and there's only so much they're allowed to tell. So yes, they are "hiding information to the population" because there's a such thing as "invasion of privacy" (not to mention "copyright infringement"), which the site could easily find itself being charged of if they let every dubious fan edited tracklist and pseudo-"recording sessions" be posted. Every forum needs mods, it's how the Internet works.

Having rules =/= Nazi Germany.

Anonymous2012-10-27 07:07:20
If copyright was such an issue, there would be no bootlegs listed here (on an apparently almost-official site).

Hybrid Soldier2012-10-27 09:27:55
One word from the others in charge or from HZ and I'll remove all of them in 5 min. That's not an issue... :)

brb2012-10-27 09:40:01
no need to remove anything at all. you guys hiding informations, telling us, that these aren't allowed to be posted, but when something leaks on the net, the first place where it is filled with that information, it's and i don't mean the comments here, but you're opening a new topic for that session or expanded one.

so what's the deal? people posting in their comments aren't allowed and they get deleted immediatly, but the crew from this website it's allowed. i'm just not getting it now.

and this website isn't nazi-germany, but the methods you're practising are almost the same. you've heard from propaganda? only letting informations to the people you want. if there is someone who has more informations for the people, he will be banned or all his messages and all the following messages from other people will be deleted without loosing a word.

i like this place here alot, but sometimes the behaviour from the staff is just ridicilous.

Antas, Webmaster2012-10-27 10:36:24
@brb : Do you really think we delete so many posts ? you are wrong. We just delete posts from peole who ask for bootlegs. Nothing else

Jimmer2012-10-27 14:06:21
I agree with @brb. There is definitely a double for just the casual fan and these moderators. I think the mods are acting like a bunch of pricks when they delete posts that list complete tracklists and then post the same exact thing on their own. Dick move.

JM2012-10-28 00:44:29
Well said, brb and Jimmer.

brb2012-10-28 08:39:04
@Antas: I respect you very much and am thankful for this platform you've brought to us. i visit this site many times in one day, just because i love zimmers music and from RCP.

but that you're deleting only some posts where someone asks for bootlegs is wrong, I'm sorry. so many times i've seen how complete conversations have been deleted, and in these conversations there haven't been any posts at all with "can i have it", "send me this". no! there were normal discussions about the material, about the cues, about what there exists, what the differences are etc. and within a second huge discussions have been deleted, just because YOU want to hide that information. within a second the place where we all discussed were empty. and no one ever have mentioned the deletion, just like it has never existed.

and that scares me, as that reminds me alot of those methods that former forces have used to hide information to the people and telling them different stories to believe and not the truth.

i'm sorry that i've opened the discussions here, at this topic about the most beautiful music ever written by hans, but i hope you're understanding my frustration, that information and music should be for everyone out there, and not only for some of you. music has been written to be enjoyed, it's another language, it's a language that everyone understands, and i don't think it's right that this music should be hidden to the public (that is zimmers and productions fault, i know). but don't do the same with informations, as informations should be open for everyone who wants to read them!

Hybrid Soldier2012-10-28 08:41:27
And you just have an example below of what the hell is going wrong.

brb2012-10-28 08:52:06
@hybrid: yes, these, and ONLY these things should be deleted, but not the discussions about the sessions, which have happened many times!

mittens2012-10-28 16:28:22
I agree. Discussions about trading and obtaining bootlegs should be deleted (this is not the place), but posting informations (e.g. tracklist posted above) must be allowed because ultimately this is what this site is about. Posting informations. Of course, unless HZ specifically said not to post Thin Red line and Gladiator recording sessions, which I highly doubt.

Bioscope2012-10-07 06:37:14
I agree. Show mw the money. Nobody likes a tease, and trading is becoming and outmoded pastime. It doesn't speed up the process of other leaks, all leaks are pretty random and a matter of good fortune. If anything, one generous leak may lead to another faster than this crap of "if you show me yours I show you mine". now show me the one about the general that became a slave, David :-)

Antas, Webmaster2012-10-07 21:42:10
Don't forget this is an official place here. Hans & his team visit these pages regularly and we/they don't accept any reference to bootleg/unofficial release anymore. Thank You

Anonymous2012-10-08 08:31:08
Antas yo say hans and his team visit your website and don't accept references to bootleg or unnofficial release. So why keep posting complete bootleg scores. Ask Hybrid why he post those "bootleg" scores?? Please Antas, in your banner you say "no longer with Remote Control Productions" now you change that banner to "Almost Official Site". So what's the game??

Tim2012-10-08 08:53:09
yup, what's the difference between those tracklists that david have posted and the tracklist to the bootlegs that hybrid is posting here?

and i highly doubt hans is reading here, but hey, if it's so, dear hans, release already your scores as recording sessions. not for free, we all want to pay for it, to enjoy your music in your fully length! we're waiting so many years for the lion king, the thin red line, last samurai, gladiator, the fan, and all those great scores, but what do we have in hand? 40 minutes of each score.

just look at the thin red line, 3h movie, over 7h music written, and we have only about 40 minutes of it?

please take care of your fans who wanna enjoy your beautiful work in its full glory and stop that elitest bull-shit that makes some of them here as they're the chosen one and feeling themself bigger then others. is this the message of music? that some of them think they have more power then the others? no! music is for everyone, so release please your scores how they should been released.

but then again, i don't believe that anyone of RCP or even hans is reading here.

Antas, Webmaster2012-10-08 11:04:57
@Anonymous : The banner depends on the composer's page : For Klaus Badelt or Trevor Rabin, the banner is not the same because they asked us to not associtate their name with Hans Zimmer.

David 2012-10-08 17:06:55
I don't know about 7 hrs of music written, but what's on that tracklist I posted is a little over 5 hrs. I wouldn't call it bootleg, it's the sessions, therefore, they're legit

Per2012-10-08 18:19:09
Anything not properly licensed etc. from the owner(s) of the music would be considered bootleg material...

Agent Smith2012-10-08 19:44:45
@David: do you have the score or just the tracklist?

Anonynous2012-10-08 20:13:13
@David, yes that's right. The original footage of The Thin Red Line it was about 6 hours, and then cut to 3 hours. So Zimmer and his team wrote more or less 5 to 6 hours of music. David posted a tracklist and this has over 5 hours of music, and like David said, the original recording sessions. So David, please give us the great honor to hear the recording sessions for this and Gladiator too. Thanks

Jimmer2012-10-08 20:35:17
I concur, please @David share your sessions. It's high time this and Gladiator, as well as others, see the light of day.

jean-paul2012-10-08 20:50:56

Oh please, come on...
Most "elitists", as you call them, here aren't a bunch of wine-drinking egocentric and greedy people listening to their precious complete scores while making fun out of YOU. They are random, passionate, and usually nice people who decided to get smart and to try to send a few e-mails or give phone calls to "the right persons".

These boards are full of people complaining, but they all remain passive. Think about how those "elitists" were able to find those scores. Try to be a little smart and creative, and I'm sure you'll get a bunch of your long-awaited scores within a month. Why to the other ones should always do the job for YOU ? Seriously.

I just watched this film for the first time, and on Blu-ray, courtesy of Criterion. It was an excellent movie, and Zimmer's score is magnificent. One of his best. I really must say though, the track "Sit Back and Relax" (my favorite one off the OST) does NOT play at all where I thought it would. It's interesting hearing music and trying to put images to it. I guess this just comes with the territory of listening to a film score before seeing the actual film.

Just thought I'd mention that, and see what anyone else has to say. Areozz, perhaps? You and I seemed to click when we both partook in that Inception nonsense last week....
