It’s funny how from 2015 until now we’ve went from things like Mad Max, Deadpool, and Tomb Raider to this, Sonic, Alita, and Mortal Engines. Definitely a big change for the better as a composer.Pretty enjoyable score, that's for sure (and another reminder for Tom's haters, why is good), and interesting mix of styles and orchestrations (and conducted by Conrad Pope).I really hope Junkie takes on more animated/kids films in the future similar to how Zimmer, Balfe, Powell, Mancina, and HGW did.  There's a  playful liveliness there that RCP really knows how to bring out when they actually give it a shot.<br><br>It's still a shame Jablonsky and Badelt never went down that road any further.<br><br>Nostalgia has its place but when it turns into stupidity it gets annoying. Vinyl only release, c'mon!... I was so happy when CDs replaced vinyls and now we should be glad that that dated and impractical technology comes back? It's a NO for me!Hybrid, is there any chance we can get some infos and credits for the cues? That would be outstanding. Thanks!
Good lord it's like he was exploding with energy and ideas after the touring gigsMore Hans !! :)If you enjoyed Sonic then you’ll probably enjoy this, even though it is far more hyperactive. The score is such a crazy mashup of Carl Stalling/epic orchestral/60’s funk/industrial trap beats/electronic/etc.<br><br>I have to say, while the themes aren’t particularly memorable, the last 5 cues or so feature some great choral writing with good use of some ethnic wind instruments (Duduk?)...I have a question about a song from this documentary that is not on the soundtrack. Could anyone please tell me the track at approximately 47:35? Thunder is cracking, Pantani begins his attack on the Galibier, and Matt Rendell is there with eloquent narration. I got so swept up in the score at this point that I spent over an hour rewinding and Shazaming and looking up all of Balfe, Aruj, and Dworetsky's music I cound fine. Any help would be much appreciated!<br><br>Thaks,<br>SamThey all sound the same. Bland.
So what do you think about the westworld competition and what is your most favorite entry?In sound quality (regardless of what certain peope might say about how great LPs sound; it's an analog format) the bootleg already trumps it I guess...I have the same question as wellIt could be possible, but there would be too many seconds of overlap between some of these tracks for that to be a possibility in this specific case. I really hope they haven't cut down the tracks to fit on vinyl, otherwise the bootleg will trump it in terms of content.Maybe the different time lengths is due to tracks slightly overlapping each other (as in many HZ soundtrack releases)?
Comparing the track times listed here, it seems (at first glance) that many of the tracks are edited down from the complete cues as heard on the bootleg. Could the listed track times be simply incorrect, or have edits been made to make the score fit onto four sides? I guess we can find out when the record ships in July.<br><br>Additionally, for those without a record player it sucks that a CD release was not possible for La-La Land. Whatever the reasons are for that, it's a bizarre situation that one independent label can release the same material on vinyl but another cannot on CD. Quite perplexing...@Hybrid, will you make the Scoob Page?Perhaps "The Cistern (Alternate)" is the album version. The music I heard in the film is not 100% the same with the track I heard in the OST.Dang I cant wait to hear the Alternate 'Cistern' cueVinyl only...How dumb can you get

Call me curious, but I want to know if Disney Records are gonna add a Hawaiian chant from Timon & Pumba in the Legacy soundtrack...?

hans2014-05-10 21:06:51
What are you, blind? Do YOU see any mention of a song called "Hawaiian War Chant" in the track list right at the top of this page? FFS

T-Mann0362014-05-10 21:16:12
Relax, kid. It was just a curious assumption. You don't have to be so freaking combative on me.

Ahhhh, the problem of there being multiple Mikes! :(

John Goldsmith2014-05-10 23:05:33
To actually answer the question - without resorting to attacking the person asking the question - Hawaiian War Chant does not actually belong to Disney. Therefore, they would have to ask whoever it is that owns the rights to it to release it and would likely have to pay royalties to whomever that may be. If you're unhappy that it isn't on here, it can easily be ripped from DVD and BR copies of the film.

Mike S.2014-05-10 23:06:21
Sorry, I'll call myself Mike S. to avoid confusion :)

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-10 23:07:54
And still, it's more like a diagetic dialog part... Don't care much...

I'm more interested to see if track 3 will contain that film insert or not... :P

John Goldsmith2014-05-10 23:58:09
There's also that alternate of track 2, but I think it sounds more 'generic' than the original piece anyways.

Joshua Chacon reply Replies: 7 || 2014-05-08 20:05:15
Good Lord, the cover art is atrocious. You'd think that in a big company such as Disney that there'd be at least one person along the chain of command to realize that this cover looks hideous, absolutely, absolutely hideous.

Aaron Harrington2014-05-08 20:32:47
Disagree. I don't like the font, but I think the art itself looks fantastic!

RealFfingMusic2014-05-08 20:49:01
If you don't like it, put on something else.

Personally, I liked the bootleg score cover art more than the others.

Barney Calhoon2014-05-08 20:51:58
^ what this guy says

ggctuk2014-05-08 22:01:08
So what's going on here is that you harp on and on about getting the complete score... and then when you get what you want, you harp on and on about what's wrong with it? Gosh, there is NO pleasing some people. I for one love the artwork. The font could have been different, but that's the only gripe I'm ever going to have.

Joshua Chacon2014-05-08 22:24:36
You are right insofar as the font is the worst part of the artwork. They could at least have used the original font instead of coming up with this ugly shite, how hard could it have been? And FYI I don't "harp on" I'm just giving some creative criticism.

ggctuk2014-05-08 22:38:43
Constructive criticism requires suggestions to improve it. You've only made a suggestion for the font (constructive criticism) but have outright trashed the artwork without offering anything that might explain how you think it would be made better (non-constructive criticism).

As for the harping on, I'm referring to the fact you spammed the old thread to death with constant requests for the complete score to be released. I'm somewhat guilty of contributing to that, yes, but I think I had some vague sense of when to quit, of when I had gotten on everybody's nerves. At this point, I do not wish to contribute any further to any argument, as I just want to bask in the glow of a week of unexpected announcements (of which this was just one).

Great news ! It's definitly one of my favourite Zimmer's score...

Maybe some Disney executive had a Misery-like experience with Joshua Chacon and Poe98 in order to decide such a release...

Hybrid, do you know if it will only be released with the English version of the songs ? I kind of like the french versions for this one :)

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 15:53:30
Well Hans told me about it, as I said here, about 2.5 years ago (he was making plans with Mitchell Leib, the big Disney music boss)... Last year he was even hinting that Meyerson could do a good job mixing...

So, sorry, but ranting people around here have nothing to do with it...

For the songs, obviously it'll just be English... Just grab the songs from your French OST... ;)

vador382014-05-08 17:57:05
Disney still not capitalizing on complete editions of scores.
Without me! I keep my hum hum edition !!

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 18:18:23

What's that then ?

If you check the tracklist it's obviously the CS lol...

vador382014-05-08 19:51:05
My apologies!
I had not read the tracklisting and I thought it was a reissue of the old album with demos bonus score.
I am very tired, been up since 4am on a public Holiday !(in France). My vision is a bit blurry.
This is great news. I can not wait!!

Joshua Chacon reply Replies: 4 || 2014-05-08 19:10:24
I don't trust this. How can you be sure this isn't a complete and utter setup? People nag on an unofficial Hans Zimmer fan site and all of a sudden there comes this announcement? I'm not going to believe this until I see physical evidence. If this is a setup someone will face legal action.

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 19:11:47
Because I asked Hans Zimmer yesterday ?

Joshua Chacon2014-05-08 19:26:03
So what you're saying is that you know Hans Zimmer in person is that what you're trying to imply here? Then what did he have to say?

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 19:41:18
Yes, and if you follow a little what's going on around here, I've already said it, even on this very page...

Joshua Chacon2014-05-08 19:45:53
OK, thanks

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 0 || 2014-05-08 19:20:36
Mark Mancina have done an excellent job composing "Speed" back in 1994... same year as The Lion King. What I didn't know is that he have made some additional tracks for Hans. After the "Legacy" soundtrack is released, I'll look forward to more info.

RealFfingMusic reply Replies: 6 || 2014-05-08 04:27:01
These track names SUCK.

Is Warthog Rhapsody same as A Diversion?

RealFfingMusic2014-05-08 04:31:38
I know it's dumb to reply to your own thread, but this ain't worth a separate one:-
It's 16 days to the release, and 12 morons have already rated this thing.

ggctuk2014-05-08 09:13:08
Actually it's out June 24, so 47 days.

As for Warthog Rhapsody, it's the unused song that got replaced by "Hakuna Matata" as heard on "Rhythm Of The Pride Lands" (although whether it's eactly the same, we'll have to see). While they're not going by the cue names for the score, they're keeping the original titles for the songs.

Anonymous2014-05-08 10:59:32
LOL, ggctuk, can you even imagine a vocal song retitled?

ggctuk2014-05-08 11:06:27
Hey, some of these cues already had legitimate names (some were even renamed then: This Land>What Am I Going To Do/Sunrise At Pride Rock, Stampede Part 2>Mufasa's Dead). I've heard of crazier arrangements when it comes to titling things.

Speaking of which, is the Mufasa Dies demo the same thing as the alternate "Mufasa's Dead" listed on the bootleg, I wonder? It definitely had some synth qualities to it.

Anonymous2014-05-08 12:09:06
yes, but that's score you're talking about. they can't change the title of a vocal song at all, unless they reworked the lyrics.

ggctuk2014-05-08 12:53:20
Technically Circle of Life HAS been renamed, though. Before it was simply "Circle of Life". Now it's "Circle Of Life/Nants' Ingonyama" which is the title it is called in the end credits of the film. That's just one song, though.

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 5 || 2014-05-07 07:48:13
I don't feel it's mere co-incidence that this was announced on my birthday. ;-) :))

Thanks to everyone at Disney who made this possible. I hope it's the official complete score at long last.

ggctuk2014-05-07 09:04:06
They say "30 minutes of unreleased music". The OST, including the non-English track "The Hyenas" weighs in at about 21 minutes. They're clearly counting the songs, but it might be that this version is 'sped up' slightly. Or might be missing something. We'll just have to wait and see.

Anonymous2014-05-07 11:03:12
I am more interested to know if Zimmer was involved with this and if they actually mixed the score again for the purpose of this release, like the composer claimed they would back in the days.

I sure hope it's not simply a louder version of the same flat mixes of the old bootleg which, amusingly enough, Zimmer himself was critical of.

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-07 12:13:01
Yes Hans told me Alan Meyerson took a good care of these old mixes... :)

ggctuk2014-05-07 15:00:07
Perhaps you could clear something up then: I've seen two press releases. One refers to the thirty minutes extra as "unreleased music" and the other refers to it as "unheard". Which would be the more accurate term?

Per2014-05-07 16:06:18
Officially, it's both (previously) unreleased and unheard I guess, so probably the same thing. Unless they refer to the demo material. But most likely they're talking about the new material on disc 1.
