When will this tracklist be leaked?I heard and thought that Zimmer stopt scoring superhero movies (including Justice League and what comes after) because it has taken 13 years of his life and he wanted to do something elseWere the two men no longer talking or did Zimmer anticipate Snyder's departure as he did in Pirates?@Olive: Rumors says Zimmer didn't want compose Justice League because of Snyder, and left behind JunkieI agree that Elfman's theme fits into Nolan's films as long as they are adapted to them. However, I think the way things have gone was not bad. TDK trilogy was marked as a project fruit of Nolan's unique vision. Although the themes do not respect the orchestral tradition are more memorable than those composed for more than half of the films of heroes of the last 25 years.Zimmer's entry into the genre can be interpreted as a breath of fresh air in a saturated marketplace at the time. But I agree that the lack of originality these days falls on Zimmer and his company and that the goal of it goes far beyond bringing talents to light.Now we need something new, again.
@Hybrid any news on Season 2 soundtrack release?Of cause Balfe worked on it !!! His whole team are credited !!!!!!!Honestly, the purpose of RCP is essentially to take Zimmer's style and make it widespread for use...WB not using ANY RCP to score this seems to have been deliberate, as there's literally no reason it couldn't be done.^ hahaha :D<br><br>I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings?They're starting to send screeners. Finger crossed for the FYC :D
The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmerís Superman theme, something we havenít heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer

Not living too far from Disneyworld, I grew up hearing "Reflections of Earth" as part of Epcot's closing show each night. For anyone who's a fan of "Run Free" from Spirit, definitely take a listen to this album.

It's a shame Gavin doesn't compose more often nowadays, this showcases some true talent!

He recently composed an album called Il Falco Bianco.

I took a listen to it... not bad at all. Definitely would love to hear more film scores from him, I wonder why he is only conducting though...

This is definitely one of my favorite stand alone compositions in recent history, it's absolutely gorgeous and takes my breath away each time I hear it.

Our symphonic band would like to purchase an arrangement of Reflections of Earth (Greenway) but cannot find it anywhere. Can you help point me in the right direction? We do not want the marching band arrangement on the Hal Leonard site. We want the original. Thanks!

Tapestry Of Nations is a really nice theme! It's The Hourne/Copano Part 2. Plus it has some Dark Knightish percussion. Overall, this compilation is must-hear for any RCP fan.

WOW! Just returned from Epcot and saw the show again for the sixth time and it is just as awesome as the first. I don't think there has ever been a more perfect marriage of audio and visual than this. "Reflections of Earth" by itself is a remarkable piece of music. "We Go On" not only brings tears to my eyes, but I love when people start to leave after "Reflections" thinking the show is over, then are left in awe after seeing this finale. It dosen't get much better than this. Thank You Gavin.

Track 1 is: Masterful. Dynamic. Rhythmic. It lives in my CD player. I get chills every time I listen. I would love to look at the score. Do I hear 7/4? Best ever use of 5/4 meter.

What a fantastic and amazing score. Track 1 (Reflections of Earth) is the most drammatic and rythmic song I have ever listened to. Thanks for composing such an amazing song Gavin Greenaway!

Have been in LOVE with this score ever since I first heard it back in Jan. 2000, and continue to listen to it all the time. Recent graduate from the University of Michigan School of Music, and I join Steven and the many others around the world in giving these works their due praise!

I am a Juilliard Graduate with a BM and an MM in music and I'm not ashamed to say that I get choked up every I hear this masterful work. Good job, Gavin!

Commissioning Gavin Greenaway to write the music for the Millenium Celebration was quite possibly the best artistic move Disney has ever done. His work creates the emotional outreach and vivid mindscapes that Disney strives for. Kudos to him for such great work.
