Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Hybrid - do you have any news or actual tracks for Oats? The trailers look amazing

Micheal reply Replies: 0 || 2017-06-13 23:30:22
Detroit will be amazing with Lorne's score . Beyond Two Souls was one of the most amazing game soundtracks ever . The trailer for Detroit sound cool. Hybrid - is there a release date ?

For everyone who is enjoying this insane flood of Lorne music; take a listen to both this score and Beyond Two Souls. Easily two of his best works, you can definitely hear Lorne's voice in them.

Emilio2017-06-11 18:07:45
Never heard of this sound track before but thank you for recommending it . Sounds very interstellar but then I see it was before intersteller ! Thank you for sharing

MichaeThomas2017-06-11 18:26:09
Never heard of this film ? Just bought the soundtrack now after listen to the examples .very very enjoyable . Balfe is becoming my favorite composer from Remote since John Powell

PetersMorg2017-06-11 19:22:50
I can not seem to find the film on line ? The music is great. Balfe is amazing this year

mpolonest1232017-06-11 19:58:46
Glad you guys enjoy it! :-) The film is online, you just have to search for it.

The funny thing about Lorne is that he is one of the only composers who can make a fake orchestra sound just as good as a real one. His "Beckett" demo from AWE, for example, is insanely good and shows a true talent for writing for writing engaging, muscular action music.

JarMun2017-06-11 22:03:11
Agreed . Beckett sounded amazing.i prefer his smaller projects. Lorne's music is intamit and special

Rigby2017-06-11 22:58:38
Another great score of Lorne Balfe is AC3. The Father and Son cue is so emotional and powerful, and the main theme itself is killer!!!

Dan2017-06-12 13:36:51
This music is great . I hadn't even heard of the film before now so thank you for the suggestion

Anonymous2017-06-13 10:35:49
i think the Detroit Become Human - E3 2017 Trailer has Lorne Balfe his music as well. Sounds like his sound

Lussy2017-06-13 17:30:38
Trailer defiantly sounds like Balfe . The trailer last year they released for Detroit had his music and he was talking about it in twitter . Hard to be Beyond Two Souls. His music was unbelievable

The music sounds as if it was performed by an actual orchestra. Was it really? It shows no credits about it, only for the solo Violin and Cello o:

Hybrid Soldier2015-06-02 16:54:09
Nope it was not !

This score will be released by Lakeshore soon... Love it, one of my favorite Lornes... :)

Blooshy2015-03-26 16:49:58
That's a definitive good new ;). More and more Balfe!

Felix2015-03-28 13:23:02
Yes, more Balfe, I love his music so much!

Hybrid Soldier2015-04-20 21:57:10
Yep... One more Lorne ! Well that one's quite "old"... But one more ! lol© 2001-2017 OST
