meh. That's your opinion. I agree with the fact of that the score is not interesting, but not to the point of wanting Howard or deplat as composers. This is inviable. Their niche is another.is there any making of out there? (making the score)I agree. The score feels so flat, and we hear stuff like this many times over already.I'm going to try and add a little criticism to this one. I personally don't really see what's so great about this. The first track, and I was already thinking "Oh, it's the Bumblebee theme again. Not the AllSpark variation, but the slow, calm part." The underscore doesn't change at all, and I feel like stuff like this has been done better by people like James Newton Howard and Alexandre Desplat. <br><br>However, good for you guys for finding something interesting in it. Maybe I'm just spoiled on Desplat and Newton Howard.I really hope so because the movie itself looks really dull, but at least it's a great score. But I would have prefered James Newton Howard to do it as was set before Jackman.
Amazing soundtrackThis is great. Probably even better than season 1.Better than season 1.unique music and great.Really good score from them both .hope they work together againThey fired Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.
I read one or two reviews of the movie and they said that Jackman's score is actually really good. Especially the drums in the score.<br>I'm exitied!!promo tracklist (there's no entry for this here yet):<br>01. Opening / Fantasy<br>02. No Fight / Selection<br>03. Father And Son<br>04.

Ferdinand ReturnsI wouldn't be remotely surprised if Hans did some ghostwriting on this, or if he at least gave some ideas to Rupert and Lorne.When the intro in episode 1 started I heard some sort of extra dark percussion near the end. Maybe a worked on his Main Title again.<br>Maybe not.Hybrid, why isn't Hans credited here? He said in an interview after the tour that he was working on the Crown season 2...
Edmund - relax.You should just start a John Powell forum and only read and write in that.some of us are simply loving others music and enjoying their work.Hahaha, that's funny. I didn't hear her until now. I think it's cool. Cause it's at a very fitting place in the song. Hahaha.Oh Thanks a lot!<br>How did you know this?<br>Is there any version without?<br>Although i think it's funny!I'm not being negative. I'm correcting a false statement. OP made it sound like these were some fresh new talents on the scene when they've been around for ages. I could say that Hans Zimmer is the best RCP composer in a long time as well, but that would be a patently ridiculous statement for exactly the same reasons.<br><br>Just because I'm one of maybe three people around here who doesn't constantly gush like some fanboy on YouTube (especially about Lorne Balfe this year for some reason), now I'm suddenly dumb and negative?RGW was the first RCP composer with who Balfe worked.

Does anyone know if there will be a score release for Home? There's a measly 30 minute song album, which doesn't include any score cues.


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-20 12:39:57
There will be ! :)


Matt2015-03-20 13:32:09
Yes! Thanks Hybrid - I knew you'd know. I really enjoyed Penguins so I'm looking forward to it. You don't know when to expect it?


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-20 16:16:47
No dates yet, I asked a few days ago... But it's gonna be released soon. :)


Pablo Reyes2015-03-21 15:02:53
That's freaking awesome! A few days ago I asked Lorne and he said he wasn't sure. I guess we know now!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 7 || 2014-11-15 16:31:27
I added an extract if you wanna check... :)


Ds2014-11-15 16:39:00
Thanks Hybrid, have you heard the full thing?


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 16:42:29
Yes I have ! As you can see in the extract it's very orchestral. It uses Jim Dooley's "traditional" Penguins theme a few times. No other link with Madagascar. Sounds more Megamind to me than Madagascar actually... :)


Ds2014-11-15 17:28:53
Good, I like the Megamind score. But too bad there's no Madagascar theme, because it puts a big smile on my face every time I hear it :p

Especially since this freaking amazing performance in London, I couldn't believe it but this piece from Madagascar was incredible.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 17:30:44
Yeah but it's the Madagascar theme, for those characters... Alex, Gloria, Marty & Melman are not here... Why would there be their theme ? It makes no sense... The Penguins had their own theme & style, which is used here... :)


Ds2014-11-15 17:48:40
I don't remember the penguins having their own theme in the Madagascar movies... which is where they belong, first of all! I thought the TV spin-off would not be connected to any movie, that's why I hoped kind of a connection with Madagascar :-)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-15 17:49:54
Just listen Whacked Out Conspiracy from Mada 1... lol


badbu2014-11-25 20:34:33
So good! :)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 5 || 2014-11-02 20:17:25
This score will be released, the album is ready ! :)


Ds2014-11-02 21:04:44
Yeah, awesome! Do you know if Balfe reused the main theme from Madagascar, or started completely fresh?


Felix2014-11-02 21:20:33
It would be so cool :D


Radik2014-11-04 22:15:28
Great, first bigger solo Lorne's project :))


Mike2014-11-04 22:35:02
Ds, I can't imagine that he WOULDN'T reuse the theme from Madagascar, seeing as he's been involved with the other ones... ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-04 22:51:23
I highly doubt that, it'll be all original I think...
