when 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......

... Partially ?


Anonymous2018-06-25 21:36:36
The cues that crossfade into one another on the official album have the same length on this "session" thing. Surely that is not how "sessions" are presented like...


Mr Tweedy2018-06-26 10:28:58
Looks like a combination of the official CD and a few unreleased tracks that ended up on the internet 6-7 years ago...


Edmund Meinerts2018-06-30 14:55:03
Yeah the amount of actual new music on that thing is pretty negligible, less than 5 minutes total of short cues. A lot of what looks like new stuff here are just shorter cues that were combined for the OST (e.g. "Poster" and "Mud Fight" are the two cues that make up "Rocky, a Fake All Along"). Unless you're desperate for clean beginnings/endings, these are the only tracks that actually contain new material:

Ginger's Dream (a nice soft take on the main theme by HGW I think)
Our Way Out
Our Future
2nd Roll (only the last 30 seconds)
Chicken Feed

It's definitely not a true sessions leak. But the album was already very comprehensive as it is and the movie's only 84 minutes long, so I doubt we're missing much (if anything).


Hybrid Soldier2018-06-30 18:03:24
Note in the soundtrack, "Into the Pie Machine" is the Powell alternate (used in the film) of the middle section of HGW's "A Really Big Truck Arrives".

So the release has both the film cue & the alternate.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 4 || 2013-11-17 15:21:00
How come there are some guys like Jablonsky and Zanelli who are listed as additionals here, but don't have any cues credited to them?


Frisbee2013-11-17 16:34:20
Two possibilities:

1) The parts they wrote didn't make it to the album program, or

2) It is known that these guys did write some music for this film, but the exact cues are not known.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-17 16:42:36
Not sure about #1, because I honestly don't think there's much more music in the film than there is on this album.


Mike2013-11-19 04:15:54
Perhaps they did source music not included here...I know that was what Zanelli did on Antz.


Mr Tweedy2013-11-19 22:24:11
Actually Edmund there are a few tracks in the film that didn't make it to the album (5 minutes or so I think).
This could be an explanation. Perhaps some additional composers just helped here and there but didn't earn credits because their contribution was meager too much ?

I don't remember if there was any source music in the film apart from "The Wanderer" (that was not composed by the score team, of course).

I Kinda Sounds Like the Great Escape Theme by Elmer Bernstein


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-11 22:40:22
Well, considering the movie is essentially The Great Escape except with chickens, I think that was the general idea. ;)

There's mistake. Geoff Zanelli did not write additional music here.


Mike2013-04-10 04:59:28
Apparently he did. The film is listed on his site.

According to the film's credits sequence, Geoff Zanelli actually did an additional cue.

My excitement just couldn.t be contained when I heard that Chicken Run was being scored by Gregson-Williams/Powell after their amazing collaboration on Antz. I knew we were all in for a treat!
I heard somewhere that main title music is a good way of telling how good the rest of the score is going to be and this is no exception. The "--Opening Escape"-- and "--Main Titles"-- tracks are seven minutes of sheer excitement. The music could be easily inserted into any old-fashioned war movie like 'The Great Escape' (which the film and music obviously parodies).
The introduction of the Mrs Tweedy character, which is gloriously placed in track 3, is at first ominous and then sad to accompany the execution of a fellow chicken.
There are many other sad, heartfelt cues in the score such as "--We Need A Miracle, "--Up On The Roof"-- and "--Rocky, A Fake All Along"--.
There are also many other action filled tracks (tracks 14 and 16).
I almost forgot to mention the kazoos - they are great. They provide a perfect comical feel to the score whilst preventing it from becoming too serious.
There are two songs on the album, one existing and one original - which is very enjoyable.

A great collaboration between the two composers who will continue to produce, interesting and exciting scores for years to come.

***** out of *****

Certainement l'oeuvre la plus aboutie écrite par John Powell et Harry Gregson-Williams.
Les deux compositeurs ont réalisé un travail excellent pour ce film des studios Aardman, déjà créateurs des courts "--Wallace &-- Gromit"--.
L'humour est omniprésent et les différents thèmes sont recherchés, et d'une énergie rare.
Du "--Main Titles"-- au "--Building the Crate"-- survitaminé, pas une seule seconde de musique n'ennuie l'auditeur. Même les deux chansons ("--Flip Flop and Fly"-- &-- "--The Wanderer"--) s'inscrive parfaitement dans le contexte.
L'utilisation des kazoos donne un son nasillard très drôle, en guise d'identité sonore de la bande originale.

Une petite perle que tous les fans de Powell et Gregson-Williams se doivent d'avoir dans leur collection. Magnifique.
