Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

Was new music composed for this movie, or is this just the score from The Bible verbatim?


Mike2014-11-01 01:28:27
I guess I should say, was ANY new music composed? Obviously several of the tracks were carried over, but that doesn't mean there couldn't have been a few new cues or something.


NM2014-11-01 10:58:28
I didn't hear anything new. Then again I don't think it matters either way, 'The Bible' score wasn't anything that new to begin with. I was and am still genuinely disappointed with what Balfe (& friends) were asked to produce for this, given his talent. It's not bad music or anything, but it's a really safe score given the subject matter.


JamesT2014-11-01 15:13:35
Characterize "safe" in this instance.

Unadventurous, staid, playing to the 'modern' sound et al.

It's not terrible, it's got some nice textures, but it just doesn't do much for me. I know it's not a fair comparison, but listen to the dynamism, daring and lyricism of 'The Prince of Egypt' and then compare it to this. It's not that I expected another musical or animation score, far from! But this just, I dunno, just doesn't capture my imagination at all.

Listen to "In The Beginning" on this very site, it's the same kind of basic-melody-over-string-ostinato-build-up you hear nearly everywhere nowadays. It's like a weak version of Chevalier de Sangreal.

That doesn't mean it's bad music, as a standalone piece it's pleasant enough, it's got a nice solo performance, it just doesn't evoke god, or the bible, or faith or struggle. The feeling it evokes to me is closer to American triumphalism if anything, indeed I can imagine it set to the beginning of a Call of Duty game.

best Music.. And i Love it.. when i watch the flim i cried. its also cause by this score. Best music for the best movie of Jesus history.

Guess you never heard Debney's The Passion of the Christ ;)


Mike2014-05-05 22:45:22
The Passion of the Christ score was BRILLIANT. Beats this one by a long shot.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-06 00:35:59
For goodness sake, forget Zimmer OR Debney. What about Miklos Rozsa or Alfred Newman? To say that this is the best biblical or Jesus-related score is practically criminal...


Anonymous2014-05-06 04:47:23
For goodness sakes, silence the panel. I think this is an extremely individualized experience, across all those superb films and scores. Let it resonate with whom and however, please.

Son Of God was amazing!! The Bible series also touched my entire family! We were close to God before but now thanks to the lovley Roma Downey and Mark Burnette we are more closer to our Lord than ever. Thank you Roma and Mark for your beautiful work!!

Lorne Balfe is doing the Hercules score?


trent easton navarro2014-03-26 09:48:15
God, I hope not! Here's hoping a composer with some actual talent ends up scoring this one. Would love to see Ratner reunite with Powell on this one (that or Elfman)


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 11:50:56
That would be pretty uninspiring news if it's true.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 11:58:26
Goddammit. It says Balfe's name indeed on Wikipedia. That doesn't mean anything yet, but still...what a thoroughly blah choice of composer.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 19:11:29
Turns out it's not Balfe at all, but rather Fernando Velazquez! That's one of the most interesting composer choices I've seen in a long time. Can't wait to hear what it sounds like, his score for The Impossible a couple years ago was amazing.


trent easton navarro2014-03-26 19:42:37
There's a filmscore God after all!


Spence2014-03-26 19:46:59
Film Music Reporter just reported Fernando Velazquez will be scoring the film.

proves once again, never trust wikipedia. just like the time they listed Elliot Goldenthal as the composer for Thor 2

Hi Hybrid

Could you please tell me, are there any new tracks in the album, beside fisher of men. Are the tracks the exact same as the bible ost or are there any tracks with alternate versions etc.

Same Q. :|

Looking forward to seeing the movie. Don't get me wrong, I have strong convictions about my Faith and The Bible. LOVED the mini-series, certain I will love the film. BUT WHY the dialog over such wonderfully moving and spiritually-infused music?!? Rather aggravating, thought I don't like mentioning one in the same compliant about the other :) The track names themselves give the appropriate context for the music. Although, I would have bought the soundtrack alone for tracks 13 (original version used in the last half of the trailer), 8, and MOST CERTAINLY 5. Hoping for a complete release someday!

I really don't understand why some people think it's a good idea to add dialogs from the movie on the original soundtrack. The good thing is that we already own clean versions of almost all these tracks, so it's no big deal :-)


Hybrid Soldier2014-02-16 13:56:03
Yeah actually the only good addition is the great track "Fisher Of Men", which is "clean"...

All those cues are from The Bible series anyway...


Bioscope2014-02-16 15:27:04
And Universal does it again.... Will they never ever learn?


RealFfingMusic2014-02-16 17:40:59
I hope there'll be a clean complete score.
