I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said noI Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from WallfischOne-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!<br><br>They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.So you can't wait to hear the score but you already say it's a great score ?<br><br><br>#inceptionAnother great score from Benjamin Wallfisch can't wait to hear the score & see the movie <br><br>Music By Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Additional Music By John Paesano & Adam Hochstatter<br>Orchestra Conducted By Tim Williams<br>Orchestrations By Peter Bateman & David J. Krystal
Why is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.<br><br>And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring. <br>And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...Re-listening the score again...….Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...…..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.Its just three short bursts of sound, really.
Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheetIt should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.<br><br>Ossuary<br>Return to Sappers<br>Must Protect the Child<br>Bomb<br>Like a Real Girl<br>Luv in Apartment<br>Mesa Hijack<br><br>I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.I keep listening to "The Syndicat", which is what I assume to be the theme for The Syndicate. Honestly one of the better villain themes i've heard in a whileFlight has a new Andrew Kawczynski credit...We're getting there!Yeah, you're probably right. <br><br>I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff. <br><br>Either way, I love that track.
Yeah<br><br>BTW, John Paesano is credited as additional musicI'm pretty sure that the majority of it is Henry Jackman (maybe with a bit of Hans). I don't get much of a Powell vibe off that particular cue at all.This film and score are ten years old! The first seven minutes of Hans’ New Batman Theme (A Dark Knight) are still one of my favorite individual Zimmer themes. <br><br>And the movie itself is still one of my favorites, comic book or not.I'm curious, who do you think mostly wrote 'Tai Lung Escapes'? <br><br>I've always loved that track, and always felt that it was mostly a John Powell cue, although that very dark first part could easily be Hans' work. I could also see it being a Henry Jackman cue though... I don't know. :pStairs and Rooftops....WOOOW Easily one of the best film tracks of 2018. Simply Amazing!!!

Out today, praise Jesus. Listening now.


Mike2013-09-24 18:03:38
So far I'm somewhat disappointed. lol.


Macejko2013-09-24 18:08:18
And that is a "lol" situation for you?


Mike2013-09-24 22:55:15
Well, I just don't take it too heavily that the score disappointed me. "lol" was an odd thing to write, though, you have a point. ;)


Casey2013-09-25 01:32:42
Mike, how does this compare to the first Skylanders score, why is it disappointing? I enjoyed the first.


Mike2013-09-25 17:18:08
I'll have to listen to the rest. I was only able to get through about half of it yesterday. when I'm done, I'll let you know.

Holy cow, A New Chieftess sounds a lot like HTTYD...

I'm disappointed that a song has to be included (Pull Your Strings).

Jimmy reply Replies: 0 || 2013-09-09 16:18:35
Frozen Galleries sounds a lot like Junkyard Isles from the previous score.

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-09-09 16:12:14
I wonder if Hans' theme will have a cameo in here like it did in Giants...

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 5 || 2013-09-07 09:46:06
Can't wait for that one, hop it tops Giants ! :D


Mike2013-09-07 18:04:07
I "hop" it tops Giants, too! Both the previous scores were awesome! :D


Mike2013-09-08 00:32:14
Aaaand people have already begun voting for it...


Bondo2013-09-08 05:33:24
Lorne's SKYLANDERS scores are definitely hidden gems :D


Mike2013-09-09 15:05:17
Amen to that.


Anonymous2013-09-09 16:09:34
Judging by the first track, the sample of "Swap Force" on Amazon doesn't top the "Giants" track...but I'll wait and see.
