man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.
I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.

has any one heard a version similar to the last note of freedom but not by coverdale but sounding similar called The Driver.


Hybrid Soldier2015-10-02 19:14:07
Yep it's actually the first song Hans wrote with Terry Reid... It was then rearranged & rewritten with Billy Idol for "The Last Note Of Freedom"...

The Driver was much better... lol

Tommy: Are you crazy? The LLL release is light years ahead of the bootleg.


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-20 10:54:18
Yes for the most part, but LLL fucked up 2 cues, The Hospital & Cole Blows His Engine ! Well done... -_-


Mr Tweedy2013-11-20 11:05:33
The most part is really good yes ! Very good re-mastering job here.
But as mentioned Hybrid, those 2 cues sound like they have a sampling rate conversion problem !
That's crazy they didn't notice such a thing during mastering...

The Last Race doesn't have any mastering problem, but probably comes from another source. The track is not as clear and smooth as the other ones. And the original drum mix is pretty bad. Anyway, good cue !


Octane 932015-04-22 14:37:39
Finally we have the elusive 'Last Race' cue!

One of my favorite scores along with 'Rush.'

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 25 || 2013-11-08 18:46:19
I got the confirmation I wanted, Mancina did work on The Last Race (and a few other cues).

End of story.


lol


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-08 18:50:59
Thanks for the confirmation. So is it Zimmer/Mancina then?


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-08 19:26:45
The themes are basically HZ so...

LLL couldn't credit him since he was not originally credited for the film (back then you rarely had any additional credited anyway for anything).


MacArthur2013-11-08 21:11:54
So it's basically Zimmer anyway.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-08 21:16:58
Yeah, with these earlier projects I think it's safe to say Zimmer was a lot more of a solo artist. Not that he didn't have help, of course, but he hadn't yet reached the "write suites inspired by the film and have my team edit it to scene" stage.

I'll have to listen to the Final Race cue myself. You can usually tell when Mancina's had a hand in things, his voice is relatively distinctive (you can pretty easily tell what cues he did on The Lion King, for example). Although this is so early in his career, maybe not as much.


Mike2013-11-09 01:11:11
When would you say Zimmer did get to the "write suites inspired by the film and have my team edit it to the scenes" stage? Because you're right, his older scores didn't do that.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-09 02:04:09
It's quite hard to say. Zimmer has always had a tendency to put long, suite-like cues on his albums, even on his early scores (which is why you get albums like Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker with only five cues, but with crazy 17-minute lengths and such). But back then you got the impression that he was still largely responsible for writing the actual CUES, too - not to mention a lot of those long "suites" were just a ton of cues that ran into each other. Again, I'm not saying he was entirely without help (e.g. Gavin Greenaway on Peacemaker), but more so than today. Exceptions like The Rock existed, but they were just that: exceptions.

If I had to pinpoint a single score where the "I do suites, team does cues" thing started to become the standard Zimmer modus operandi, then I'd say Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl: Zimmer provided the themes, Badelt and Zanelli and all the rest applied them to cues. Which is interesting, because in that score's case it only came about because of the emergency situation of desperately having to finish the score on time. Then I guess came Batman Begins, and Chris Nolan who apparently likes to have Zimmer write music based on the film's CONCEPT rather than directly to cue (although if Batman Begins has suites, I'm not sure we've ever heard them). By Dead Man's Chest and Da Vinci Code, the suite thing was in full force and hasn't changed since.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-09 02:07:23
Keep in mind that this is PURE speculation on my part; I'm sure Hybrid could correct me on a lot of the above points.


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-09 09:13:07
Actually I have tried to ask when he actually started that method.

And I didn't get an answer (I mean I did but it was more "why" than "when" lol)...

"No theme, no score. But it took a while to figure that out... you see, you can just start writing to picture. The picture will make it "sound" better. But at the end, you're never going to have a piece that can stand on its own, you've never given the director and yourself the chance to really think it all the way through, and you can't ask [everyone] to help fill in the gaps in the movie, because you have to give them the themes, the sound, the production and the intellectual through-line. So the suite becomes a template for the whole film. Man Of Steel is entirely made from that template (actually it's two suites)..."

King Arthur is a score based on 2 big suites (totally unreleased).

He told me Lion King had some suites too, so it's not a new process... Nine Months has a theme suite (We Can Work It Out on OST).

So I guess it depends, on the schedule too...


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-09 18:06:27
I'd love to hear the King Arthur suites. That score is one of my favorites. Although, I imagine they wouldn't contain much that we haven't heard in other forms in the complete score.


MacArthur2013-11-10 17:27:40
I don't know King Arthur was pretty lengthy as a score album.

and I liked it to.


Anonymous2013-11-10 19:22:41
HZ did a lot of cues himself on TDK, comparatively speaking :P


MacArthur2013-11-10 21:21:12
And as far as we know MoS


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-10 21:41:07
Jeez stop giving your opinion about who did what since you have no clue or anything interesting to add but "I think"... :(


Anonymous2013-11-10 21:44:59
Am I wrong.


Mike2013-11-10 21:45:27
There would not be six additional guys in Zimmer did most of the scene-to-scene scoring himself.

Am I wrong.

My bad Forgot to post my name.

There were 4 not 6 mike. :)


Mike2013-11-10 21:50:06
Right, sorry. Must have been thinking of another score. Still, I stand by what I said.


Macejko2013-11-10 21:51:13
MacArthur is just anxious to keep himself in the illusion that every piece of music there is in the world is somehow connected to Hans.


MacArthur2013-11-10 21:57:25
Right the Turkish March by Mozart is Hans Zimmer, Or Star Wars is Hans Zimmer.

Quit being a butt-hole! Mace.

La-La Land Records and Sony Pictures Entertainment present the original motion picture score to the 2011 feature film drama restless, starring Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper and directed by Gus Van Sant. Renowned composer Danny Elfman (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, BATMAN, SOMMERSBY, BLACK BEAUTY) crafts another notable original score – a delicate, but stirring work, in the vein of his music for MILK and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, that expertly finds the heart and soul of Van Sant’s delightfully offbeat romantic drama. Produced by Danny Elfman and mastered by Patricia Sullivan at Bernie Grundman mastering, this special release is limited to 2000 units and includes exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer Tim Greiving which feature comments from director Gus Van Sant. The attractive art direction is by Dan Goldwasser.
