Where is the albumYou're right, you do not know anything ... I hope that something is published since the movie seems to have problemswhen are we gonna have some info on the Dark Phoenix score or even a snippet of what it sounds like. We've heard nothing about the score at all since it was announced that Zimmer was doing itLast episode tonight with the soundtrack after that. Gonna be a great night!!!!Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.
Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt SprengersThe only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.
Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?Very interesting interview. Thanks man!
Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.

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.


mpolonest123 2017-06-20 03:22:45
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.

OMG...if anyone sees this and know where to get this soundtrack...PLEASE let me know... I need it bad and I can't find it anywhaere right now.

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.

Dave reply Replies: 0 || 2007-08-02 00:00:00
Wonderfull from the start to the finish. I think the music and orchestrations are wonderfull. More please Gavin!

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!

Steven reply Replies: 0 || 2005-11-14 00:00:00
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.
