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.
I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.

Hybrid, do you think there's any chance that Tom will return to do the last 2 movies in this trilogy? The second score was horrendous and I think it would work if Tom came back and brought his old themes with him.


Hybrid Soldier2015-10-10 16:18:42
No, I don't think so. His score was terribly butchered in the first and not so much was used in the final cut. Not sure he wants to return to that.

And he has much more interesting to do.


David2015-10-10 17:24:38
True dat. Like Deadpool!!


Hal2015-10-10 18:16:18
Yea but Diverent was such a damn good score. Would be great to see development of themes and of course new ones!


Ds2015-10-10 21:28:07
That butchering was really a shame. I remember watching the movie after having listened to the score a few times, I could not believe my ears. Fortunately Tom released a nice album with many great cues, so that we can forget the film and keep only tj music :-p


...2015-10-12 18:36:59
Yes it was a shame, but the album was awesome and considering the fact that Tom is a big guy now (not literally) they probably wouldn't butcher the sequel score if he were to do it.

Hybrid, do you know the chronological order of this? and maybe how it can be mixed with the expanded score that surfaced some time ago.

A lot of cues were replaced I think...

I need to make a proper thing for this one...

That's be great! I think it's Tom's best score to date!

This was one of the best scores of last year.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 4 || 2015-03-18 16:29:21
Wow. Listening to Joseph Trapanese's score for Insurgent and talk about dropping the ball. None of Junkie's themes are used and most of the music is just atmospheric crap.
The new theme is halfway decent though, but kind of generic.


...2015-03-21 23:13:41
I totally agree! Listened to the OST and was like, where's the music? It's such a dull score and it lacks emotions, good action material and a good theme, such as Tom created for the first movie.

I wonder if it was due to scheduling issues that Tom didn't end up doing it or if it was the new director. Anyway I hope he will score the last 2 movies because anyone must have noticed that Joseph's work didn't work at all.


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-21 23:33:18
The first film was a "difficult" experience apparently for everyone, I never expected Junkie to come back...

And... Yeah, that second opus lacked pretty much everything while the first score had like 3 or 4 main themes...


RebelRising2015-03-22 02:18:59
Which is especially a shame because out of all the scores Tom has composed, this is the only one that I really like as a whole.

300 had, like, 3 tracks I would listen to more than once, whereas Divergent's soundtrack is a legitimately fun piece of work.

Hopefully Mad Max knocks it out of the park.


mpolonest123 2015-03-22 04:07:01
Considering how badly Tom's score was butchered in the first film, I really am not all that surprised he didn't want to return.

And as far as his scores go, Run All Night isn't half bad actually. The thematic part at least. ;)

This is beautiful music...

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2014-03-29 01:06:26
I just saw the movie and have one word: HORRIBLE. The great music composed by Junkie XL has been completely butchered, the best tracks aren't featured at all, or have been replaced by songs or bland alternate versions. For example, the cool vocal parts of "Choosing Dauntless" or "Capture the Flag" are not even in the movie, and the great "Fight the Dauntless" plays only for 20 seconds.

Worst of all, the score plays extremely low and far in the background, which makes it inaudible from start to finish, even when there's no dialogue or action. The sense of rythm and excitement present in the album release is totally absent from the movie.

It is incredible how music with such a great potential and so much intensity, can be toned down and become next-to-nothing in a movie. I wonder who was in charge of cutting Junkie XL's tracks to picture. If he did it himself then I really don't understand.


Rcp2014-03-29 05:34:32
I think perhaps whoever was in charge of the music decided to replace some scenes with whatever pop music that ended up replacing it. Cause there are cues on the album not in the film, so it may have been a later thing after it was scored to change things up a bit - but hey, at least we got all the music unlike some other releases *cough*man of steel*cough*


RealFfingMusic2014-03-29 11:33:13

After listening to the score over and over this weekend, I've come to the conclusion that Fighting Dauntless is one of my favorite musical pieces from the last few years. The mixture of the epic and personal is great.

Micah reply Replies: 1 || 2014-03-17 19:46:45
This is a pretty good score. Tris, Final Test and You're Not Gonna Like This are by far the best.

Tris' theme is beautiful. I hope XL Junkie returns to score the next movie. I hear a lot of potential building blocks for future scores.


Macejko2014-03-17 20:02:29
The second installment will by directed by Robert Schwentke who usually works with Christophe Beck, so Junkie's return is IMHO unlikely. Which is a damn shame, because the score is indeed very good.

Anonymous reply Replies: 3 || 2014-03-17 02:49:12
Ok, first, great score.

Has threads of other stuff all over the place.....Girl Rising, MOS, some stuff by HGW, the piano in Tris reminds me of JNH's The Happening.

OMG. Has anyone noticed the stark similarities of Track #16 The March to the Opening Cue from Vangelis' score to The Bounty? Wow.

Really enjoying it, nonetheless!

Where did you hear the full score? Thanks!


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-17 10:03:07
Yeah, "The March" really took me by surprise. Wasn't expecting to hear something so retro-sounding and, as you say, Vangelis-like.


Héctor2014-03-17 18:22:51
Better performance than the others. Similar to the structure of Bleeding Fingers....And survivor. But is better than the other stuff. More Whisky for Junkie.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 1 || 2014-03-15 01:18:57
I'll just echo what others are saying and say that this score is really not bad at all. Much better than I expected after the terrible 300 score.

It's the softer thematic parts that really shine, like the opening cue. The action music still relies too heavily on uninventive hammering MoS percussion for my taste, though (the 14-minute track just goes on and on and on and on and on...). But...okay. I'm gonna have to give Junkie XL the benefit of the doubt from now on.

Really it was written before. cause Lone survivor Came out in some countries early last year.

I think it's a good score. The main theme is very catchy and it blends nicely different genres together, i love it very much. But for the moment I didn't notice anything particularly outstanding, apart from this main theme.

But i guess it'll grow on me in the next few days!

Tracks 1, 3, 4 are (for now) my favorites.

Very, very good score and the cues Hybrid mentioned are truly the best (especially "Choosing Dauntless", I simply love that one). It's really imaginative in its use of percs and Goulding's vocals, and although the MoS influence is still felt here and there, the score certainly shows that Junkie is more than able to bring his own musical identity to the game.

Listened to it twice. Loved it. Now I really don't know wtf went wrong with 300. It's probs because Zimmer (I think)didn't help much with it. The MOS percussion, Lone Survivor acoustics, and with Ellie Goulding's voice and Junkie XL's electronica blend surprisingly well. I can't wait to see the movie and I am sure it will fit great (guy's it is a perfect date movie!). Here's to hoping it fairs well critically! 3.5/5 for me. Screw 300 lol.

Hybrid Soldier2014-03-09 08:21:38
Because I've already listened to it...

It's not exactly like 300... Yeah it has some "usual" Junkie MOS percs, but it's more like a mix between the lighter action parts of MOS with Craig Armstrong's In Time...

I have 5/6 tracks on constant repeat (Tris, Choosing Dauntless, Capture The Flag, Conspiracy, Final Test (it's gonna remind people of some MOS unreleased track... lol) & Fight The Dauntlesss).

Can't put anything on the player just yet though...

I mean he's ok but why not The Maestro himself. or Jablonsky or....Or even...Balfe. :)


0-cool2014-03-09 18:49:42
he is better than most Zimmer collaborators.
Check out Darkspore, which is one of the best electronic/ambient score I've heard.
Then his symphony for an event in Utrecht. Can't imagine Jablonsky,Balfe,Djawadi etc pull that off

Yeah, why more people aren't hiring The Maestro is beyond me...I mean, we all know John Williams is probably the greatest film composer of all time.
