Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.It’s definitely Balfe. I’ve seen the film for the second time two weeks ago so my memory is kind of hazy but luckily I decided to record the end credits for reference and I think it plays in Balfe’s section / variation of one of his themes played on a solo string instrument. <br><br>I think we got most of Richter cues as it was mainly his release. I feel that Lorne has moved on from this project - he didn’t even mention the release so an extended release of his material seems unlikely to happen :( <br><br>For those interested the credits suite plays as follows: <br><br><br>“A Trip To The Moon” (synth part)<br>“I Put All That Away”<br>Variation on the theme in “Underground Lake” at 0:14<br>Variation on the theme in “Trip To Neptune” 0-1:00<br>“To The Stars”Season 2 premieres in 2 weeks, if he was scoring he would be working on it at the moment. But yes no confirmation regarding his return or a new composer. No news regarding new composer might be a hint whether Djawadi is returning or not.I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.I suspect that the release was just what they had originally planned, with a couple of bonus tracks thrown in to appease Fox. They likely didn't put too much thought in what they added, since people who have spoken with Lorne said he wasn't aware of the release and was surprised Prayer wasn't on it. I'm just glad anything got released at all after everything that has gone before.<br><br>Regarding that theme you mentioned, is it one that sounded like the personal motif Ethan has in M:I Fallout? Because while I did initially assume that was Balfe too, it seems it was actually Richter. Haven't gotten to hear Lorne's parts yet, so who knows he if he also did a similar thing.
It’s not included and I’m very confused. I think there’s a good amount of unused tracks or the way the score was used was so terrible that only few tracks were memorable to me. <br><br>There’s a theme that plays during two tragic moments - I thought it was “Prayer” but it isn’t. I think it’s by Lorne as it’s closer to the direction he took. <br><br>I wish they gave us more Balfe :(I know this is probably the wrong place for it but I'd love if Hnas would one day release a CD of just his demo sketches and suites. I find hearing the original intentions/ideas even when rough really fascinating.11.22.19Yeah lol one way or another... :P21. Hello, Beastie! (3:42)<br><br>Geoff Zanelli will be haunted by the specter of the PotC franchise until the day he dies, lol
After listening to the whole thing, I can say that, while not as great as Newton Howard, Zanelli did a great job in here, adapting the original themes as well as creating some new ones.<br><br>The first half of the album drags a bit, but the second half is really fantastic!Is a CD release being planned?<br><br>If so, when is it coming out?zimmer said once, that he was very satisfied of how his music was presented in the ost and that it would let the music speak in that way as he wanted to be heard, and that there aren't much of importing cues that should have been added or released. <br><br>but i guess he hasn't recognized how much love his score have gotten over the years, until his first world tour. there has been a huge demand and loud screaming after the tracklist of his show had  been released and there was no sign of last samurai. people complained and asked (esp. through this site) for a cue of Last Samurai to be played in their show, but it the developement of the show was already at its end and so he hadn't the chance to include a cue of it aswell. but atleast he recognized how much people are loving that score and respect his work on it. maybe that has changed his mind and view to the score and a propper and complete release of the score...@Hybrid Soldier, out of curiosity, why is the Last Samurai have conditions? A better way to ask is, what is the backstory with it what seems to cause reservations for Hans? Thanks!Really fantastic writing here, definitely taking inspiration from JNH’s style without trying to copy. And the adaptation of Maleficent’s “curse” theme from the first score in “The Phoenix” is definitely a highlight.
No idea, and Last Samurai is not a no-go from Hans. It might have been under certain circumstances in the past but last time I asked him he was open for it (under some conditions, obviously).@Hybrid Soldier: Do you know if there is any chance LLL would take this as a candidate for a propper release? Or is it a no-go for Zimmer like with Last Samurai?I think prayer is private video from Lorne Balfe's YouTube Channel. Also, there have prayer video still here by YouTube Search by another channel posted the videoCan anyone confirm if "Prayer" is on the OST? Since the video has been deleted, I'm not sure if anyone has a saved copy to check.I would buy a copy of an official release of this score. The Jablonsky variations is one of my favorite HZ tracks.

Very underrated score. As already pointed out by a couple of reviewers, it's a nice, little throwback to MV/RC's Golden Years and Trevor's own scores from 1997 to 2002. Give it a listen if you can. It's not long and it's worth it.

i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.

I agree.

And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.

People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.

It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...

It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.
