Interesting to see Lorne Balfe replacing Jablonsky now with Micheal Bay.6 Underground is totally crazy and Balfe’s score equals it.Also has emotion like 13 Hours.<br>Doesn’t beat His Dark Materials but a great scoreSorry, das ist doch ein Witz, Dortmund ist nicht dabei :(Way too many songs.<br>Lorne Balfe score nailed it.Great to see Bay working with Balfe now.This is an RCP website, those scores aren't by RCP composers...Power anthems ???? Obviously you haven’t watched the movie.They would not fit in this movie.<br><br>Balfe’s score is really cool and not expected.Already listened to it 4 times!
I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.

A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques.
Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.
It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.

Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.

I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...

Finally got a chance to listen to this one all the way through (after seeing the film) and I can definitely see why HZ is proud of it. It's funny that he says "Inferno" is his most experimental/dark score because honestly, I think The Fan takes the cake.

You can hear a lot of obvious foreshadowing of some of Zimmer's later work; the piano/heartbeat effect from Hannibal, the electronics of Chappie, even some of the whispering for Electro. Also props to the beautiful incorporation of the main theme in "Letting Go"

My only gripe is that this doesn't belong with a better film, I feel like more people would discover and appreciate it alongside something like The Rock or Crimson Tide.


mpolonest1232017-02-15 21:21:40
Oh, and forgot to mention the EXTREMELY obvious inspiration for The Kraken in "Gil's End"!


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-16 03:49:19
Yeah, you're right! It's fantastic!

So from what I found HGW wrote 5 cues of this score, Rona 3...

Gonna need some checking before I can tell which cues ! lol


NotSoAnonymous2015-02-03 16:47:07
I really love this score. It seems to always be forgotten about

The Fan expanded score is ultimately one of the BEST soundtrack Hans have ever composed. 1996 was indeed the Year of Hans. "Broken Arrow", "The Rock"... and now, The Fan. Main Titles and Game Tension are just a few of my favorite tracks and Terrence Trent D'Arby (Sign Your Name, Wishing Well, etc.) have done a tremendous job performing "Letting Go" and it was, in my POV, emotional.

Great score! The main theme is so simple and efficient in the movie and outside!

I noticed a thing : Transformers "Skorponok" theme has a lot of similarities with some cues of this score. Example : Gil Falling Down : 1:00 - 2:00 Sacré steve! :D


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 13:59:46
What's this? The Transformers score sounding like something older? The devil you say?!

I just "found" this myself; looking forward to giving it a listen once I've got my damn finals out of the way...


Hulk2014-05-08 14:12:41
I don't said the devil by the way! :D


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 14:26:08
I know, I know, it's just an expression. Jablonsky's scores are known for helping themselves to the occasional idea or theme from a previous score, so this doesn't really come as a surprise to me, is all. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 14:41:21
Before being blamed, Steve would need to have anything to do with Skorponok...


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 15:01:15
So is Skorponok really a solo Trevor Morris cue? Not Jablonsky/Morris, but just Morris?


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 15:08:56
Oh Morris did work on it, and probably was not alone... Anyway... I told The Fan is the father of many scores... :)


LP2014-05-08 18:42:56
I thought Harry did more work on this. And Jeff Rona did a few cues toward the end, involving rain/water (since he had worked on White Squall)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 19:02:54
Harry didn't write on The Fan... He only conducted it...

Rona worked on a few cues like The Rescue or Fans Are Losers...


LP 2014-05-08 19:52:24
Thank you for the clarification.


Anonymous2014-05-08 20:46:05
FINALLY!!! Excellent stuff, just great. Game Tension is superb!!


rockhound2014-05-09 08:04:29
I also thought, that Harry Gregson-Williams was more involved in this score, because a couple of tracks have the Enemy Of The State sound. Harry also said in his Tony Scott tribute on facebook the following:

"I first met Tony way back on his rather grim movie 'The Fan'. You could say it was on that score that Hans Zimmer passed scoring duties of his movies over to me."

But maybe he meant that in a different way. Nonetheless it is a fantastic score by Hans.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-09 09:08:45
Harry meant The Fan was Hans' last score for Tony and he handled after...


And yeah, the big EOTS rips are just temptrack...


Steve2014-05-10 01:02:54
ummm how were there EOTS temptracks in The Fan if EOTS hadn't come out yet??


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-10 09:14:42
I obviously meant the other way around...

Hybrid: It would be great if you could put up an additional track on the player - perhaps Game Tension or Gil's End :)

"Main Titles" is fantastic.
