@Ds: Actually I prefer Ender's Game (also released by Varese Sarabande) over P&G (but the movie is cool)Pain and Gain is not a bad score, actually it's maybe better than the TF scores, in its own genre.<br><br>But it's entirely electronic so I guess there are no musicians to pay!<br><br>Also, maybe a lot of releases have the same deal as TF3 and TF4, but so few people buy them, they remain for sale forever because the maximum allowed number of sales is never reached...I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the  action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P <br>I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.one more question. Who wrote the Bumblebee theme?Does an instrumental version of BATTLE CRY exist?? 0.o
Awesome Thx.which tracks are suites, cuz it seems like a bunch are...?Love Izzy!I take it back...<br><br>Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....<br><br>What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.There's also a little hint in "Code Red" too...
Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.Lea Halalela on CD “RHYTHM of the PRIDE LANDS“ from 1995;...<br>Frankfurt show was amazing, Leipzig tooHey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.
Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.<br><br>The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!<br><br>Greetings from Southampton/EnglandHybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.

Exodus is a wonderful score. but everytime I listen to it, I feel like the soundtrack is missing a lot of important cues. The main theme for Moses is incredible but for some reason most of the tracks that contained it were omitted from the soundtrack release. So frustrating when a composer does this.when I saw the film the main theme is obvious and is used quite frequently, but when listening to the soundtrack you could easily walk away not hearing a single theme. I guess I'll be waiting around for an "unofficial" release.

Any word on the score release for Blackhat?


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 19:03:57
It won't be released.


Justin Bieber2015-01-12 19:24:39
Why?


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 19:33:20
Harry said it wouldn't... I'm not in either Michael Mann's head, HGW's head or Atticus Ross' head... I take the info as it is... lol


JamesT2015-01-12 19:38:15
That's INCREDIBLY disappointing.


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 19:40:48
Well the score was a mess HGW wrote 80 min but only partly used...


Medigo2015-01-12 20:03:46
reminds of of James Newton Howards score for Collateral


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 20:06:42
And Harry just posted on Facebook :

"Dear all,

I would like it to be known for what it’s worth that the ‘score’ for Blackhat maybe credited to me, but contains almost none of my compositions. I attended the premiere of the movie at the end of last week and discovered, to my horror, music that shocked and surprised me…quasi emotional (synth) string pieces that I’d never heard in my life before. I knew of at least one other composer, a good one at that(!), that had put in months of work on this movie just as I had, but this appeared to me to be in addition to both our contributions. To be honest, I’m not sure, as I’m having a hard time understanding what I heard and why it was there and I can say nothing for certain except that I was not the author of most of what is now in the movie. I feel like I want to point this out for anyone who like me cares about these things, as my name is right there listed as the lead composer and one would expect that credit to mean something, but it doesn’t. And I do care about that.

I therefore reluctantly join the long list of composers who have had their scores either sliced and diced mercilessly or ignored completely by Michael Mann. This is his film and these are his decisions and I do respect that, but see no reason to have people mistake this score for one that I composed, or in any way approved of musically. The 90 minutes of score that I did write and deliver is, as I’ve said, mostly unused.
I would still encourage you to check out his movie, as you may enjoy it.

Harry"


Dudu2015-01-12 20:12:32
AFAIK, this is the first time a composer publicly says that the music heard in the movie is not his...sh** just got real.
Hybrid do you have any other examples??


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 20:18:58
Klaus Badelt should, one day, about POTC 1... lol

Hans admits it for stuff like Invincible for instance.

Well no I have no other examples in my head right now...


Ds2015-01-12 20:34:13
I feel sorry for Harry... But more interestingly, he seems to imply he didn't collaborate at all with Atticus Ross. I don't know why a director would ask 2 composers to work on his movie separate from each other. I mean, did they work on picture? Did Mann divide his movie into two parts? Or did he ask them both to compose the whole thing, for him to select the best cues from both? Seems weird to me.


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 20:40:32
They both wrote a full score I think...


Well it's Mann... He had JNH replaced by a lot of Pinto & stuff... He had John Murphy replaced with Klaus Badelt... Etc...


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-12 21:30:08
I just came here to post Harry's Facebook comment, not surprised people are already talking about it though. Poor Harry...having to work with both Ridley Scott and Michael Mann in one year, the only person left from the trifecta of miserable directors for composers to work with is Paul Greengrass!


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-12 21:34:37
With all of RCP blocking its doors to Paul Greengrass, I think Harry has a shot there !!! lol


Ds2015-01-12 22:04:19
With the return of Damon & Greengrass to the Bourne franchise, I'm really wondering what they're going to do with the music. I think it's out of question for Powell, from what I heard I doubt Jackman will do it, or anyone from RCP... Well, maybe Hans will once again be too kind and accept the job... It would be hilarious :p

Maybe they'll ask JNH, he's capable of RCP-like writing (even if his electronic scores are often dull).


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-12 22:56:22
JNH's Bourne Legacy was a total snoozer. His Salt was an OK Bourne-like score, though...as long as it's more like the latter than the former, I'd be all right with him on board.


trent easton navarro2015-01-13 14:42:38
@Ds This is basically standard with Michael Mann, he usually goes through several composers on any film. See the examples Hybrid gave. And also on The Insider he used Graeme Revell and Lisa Gerrard.

Seems on this one he first hired Ross, then Harry, after that Ryan Amon and finally Mike Dean, a keyboardist and producer for Kayne West


Lambegue2015-01-13 17:42:21
I really don't understand that some composers replace score by other quite random stuff like that...Don't they have any respect for their composers ?
I don't mind for a score to be totally or partly made of pre-existing material if it is thought to be like this right from the beginning : I can also understand that a director sometimes want to replace a composer by another if he is not happy with the direction taken, but this, hiring guys here and there without letting any of them know what the other did, and taking bits and pieces from each of them (and sometimes from other things too) is very disrespectful, and most of the time not really good for the quality of the score...


Dudu2015-01-14 10:37:19
Harry deleted the post from his page...and at least, Mann isn ´t even hiding his treatment of music!
"I worked with a number of composers on this one because I wanted different things from different people. It’s like casting actors. The film is an adventure of a narrative, and the story changes radically about three times, so there are very different conditions emotionally. That changes the music. So Atticus Ross does one thing, Harry Gregson-Williams does another thing, Ryan Amon does another thing, and then Mike Dean does something else. Mike Dean is Kanye West’s keyboardist and producer—a very talented guy."


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-14 12:23:05
People are misinterpreting Harry's message I think.

He isn't criticizing Mann much or searching for pity, he knows the rules...

He was just pissed to be still credited composer when the film actually has almost none of his music... That's all... lol


JG2015-01-21 05:06:50
Can anyone here comment on a proper chronological order for this album presentation? Just a quick look at the titles, clearly these are out of order! I almost always prefer the proper film order, so curious if anyone has already compiled such a list? Thanks!

Justin Bieber reply Replies: 0 || 2015-01-14 06:22:38
Speaking of unreleased work and over-credit of Harry Gregson-Williams. Another example is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

Scorefan reply Replies: 0 || 2014-11-25 00:25:02
It's a good score.
Listening some cues from Federico Jusid, and they are really amazing. And the fact is that Federico Jusid was rejected from 300 Sequel. So do you think the score would have been different from Junkie XL.
Harry's work, impressing as always, with the additional music.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 8 || 2014-11-20 19:41:51
Details & extract... :)


Anonymous2014-11-20 20:55:19
Sounds great. I hope the whole score has choir like this :)


Lambegue2014-11-20 22:19:08
Have you heard all of it, Hybrid ? My main fear for this one is a lack of unity between Iglesias' (and Jusid's) cues and Gregson-Williams' ones, as I understood they didn't work together...


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-20 23:01:28
It's a nice score, good moments.

But it's not a GREAT score in any way... :/


Ds2014-11-20 23:05:09
Oh shit... it looks like a huge epic movie, the kind of which deserves a great, memorable and moving score. Ridley needs to re-team up with Hans!


Anonymous2014-11-21 06:28:30
Samples sound wonderful to me.

I am getting a strong HGW vibe from most of it actually (at times a little bit of Mychael Danna's Nativity Story too). Makes me wonder if HGW had more hands on the music than what's made public.


Nonore2014-11-21 19:26:02
Where can we find some other samples of the soundtrack ?


Anonymous2014-11-24 15:45:33
Time to talk about something else than interstellar.

Just listened to the full thing (soundcloud). Harry his tracks are cool


Ds2014-11-24 17:54:46
Listened to the first 3 tracks only, and I love it!! Much better than I expected.

That's what she said.


Zimson2014-11-13 00:21:31
The CD cover? That would be 4,7 inch. :/


Dr. Sheldon Cooper2014-11-14 04:56:41
By the word "length", (s)he could have meant :--
(a) The diameter of the disc, which is 12 cm;
(b) The diameter of the spindle hole, which is 1.5 cm;
(c) The wavelength of the reader, which is 780 nm;
(d) The length of the thread, which is approximately 700 MB, i.e. 5,898,240,000 little pits on the aluminium foil -- (I know, OMG right?);
(e) The duration of the audio data, which is highly variable depending on amount of memory used, bit depth & sample rate, etc.


Everan2014-11-14 05:31:00
What is the runtime of this album? It's it over 40 minutes, 60 minutes or more?

Honestly I'm adding this but I have no idea if the CD will contain any of HGW's material... lol


Scorefan2014-11-03 22:14:40
Maybe, just like Prometheus


Washu2014-11-10 21:17:42
Apparently these three cues on the score is his:

3. Hittite Battle
12. The Wows
30. Tsunami

How do you know that Washu ? :)


Ds2014-11-10 23:46:13
If this turns out to be true, it means that HGW was absolutely needed to bring some epicness :p

I feel kind of sorry for Alberto Iglesias...


Washu2014-11-11 00:15:06
He wrote it on his Facebook fan page.
