This is a highly underrated album. It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Change Of Plan (Unused) (5:47)Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinion
So it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.
I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !you can't, it's only an info for the complete scoreAccording To Filmmusicreporter.com, it Is true Lorne Balfe Is Scoring Black Widow.<br><br>Wow this guy Is the Best, this is the first time balfe scoring an MCU since Iron Man(worked as an additional music). I can't believe that Alexandre Desplat, who is a good composer left the film just like I remember Rogue One. Well, Now i Hope that Lorne Balfe makes a great score just like he does always.Comes out on April 3rd. Keep hearing that the music is very Lion King style.
How can i download it?Replaced ?<br><br><br>On the first he just sort of left. Wouldn't be surprised to be the case here again.Someone at Disney really wants Desplat gone. This is the second time he has been replaced on a major assignment.Crazier? I can't think of many things *less* crazy than a Lorne Balfe replacement scoreWow, an MCU score I might actually like for once. xD

Hi Hybrid, not sure where to post this, but BBC recently released a preview to Planet Earth II, composed by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea, Jasha Klebe.

https://www.facebook.com/bbcearth/videos/1253466768020210/

Do you have more information about this? I heard that Zimmer created the main theme/title theme.

Any news about the longer release of the score?


Anonymous2016-04-08 09:55:45
No, and there won't be a longer release. Enjoy what you already have. :D

I'm pretty sure the theme here is exactly how HZ started his "Moody Bruce New Hero Suite..." :P

A couple of extracts added !


Ds2015-11-21 10:45:29
Beautiful! ... But why is this release so short? Is there only 19min of music in this whole series? I d doubt that :-p


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-21 11:04:50
There's a CD planned in december... Madison Gate Records says this is an "EP"... So I guess the CD will be longer... Lorne will as usual put some more on his website as well...

Wait & see ! lol


Evenstar2015-11-21 18:12:08
good news Hybrid, thanks


Johannes2015-11-22 09:47:28
Hey Hybrid Soldier, sorry for asking, i saw there some questions about A.D. so i would like to know if there gonna be full release or more soundtrack on Lorne´s web site. Thank you!


Kalmi2015-12-26 09:17:43
Hello, does anyone know what happened to the Sony CD planned to be released on 4th December? I can't find it anywhere. It is still listed at most sites but it is "out of stock". However I haven't found any info on that it had actually been released.

Lejti reply Replies: 10 || 2015-11-13 23:36:26
Lorne Balfe did 13 Hours (Michael Bay movie) score, Hybrid any information about the reason why Balfe replaced Jablonsky? I know it never was official Jablonsky doing it, but I was thinking a Bay movie will have a Jablonsky score.


Ds2015-11-14 00:43:36
... and Hans Zimmer is listed as executive music producer. Balfe + Zimmer + Bay, I think we'll get a very good score!!


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:07:00
Who knows what happened... Maybe Jablonsky dropped, maybe Jablonsky was never in, maybe he was fired... That's life lol...


Ds2015-11-14 01:19:17
After so many collaborations, I don't think Bay would have to fire Jablonsky. Surely they came to a point where they understand perfectly each other, Jabs should know how to please Bay. I'd bet on a scheduling issue.


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:21:57
Or maybe Steve had no interest in doing Lone Survivor again ? Especially after on that one only 20% of his whole score was used...


I don't know... But well in the end Lorne co-scored 2 films for Bay already, they know each other as well...


Anonymous2015-11-14 01:25:57
TF2 & TF3?


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:28:23
1 & 2... Especially 1...


Ds2015-11-14 01:33:21
Hmmm that's interesting. Btw, do you have an idea of the kind of role Hans played (plays?) in this project?


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-14 01:34:54
Probably like on Terminator... Some synth programming to help "define" the sound, giving constant feedback on the cues, going to all the meetings with production & stuff... That kind of things.


Joshua 2015-11-14 04:45:41
Man this is gonna be weird, Jablonsky, to some extent has worked on every Bay film since Armageddon, 18 years ago! That's a pretty long partnership, hope its just a scheduling thing.


-,-2015-11-14 15:04:01
Please no Lrne Balfe for 13 Hours. He is one of the worst composer from RC. I don`t think, michael bay fired jablonsky, he composed the score for tmnt2 and deep water horizont. i hope he came for transformers 5 back. urgh i dont like lorne balfe!

New Hans & Lorne ! :)


Felix2015-11-08 21:04:26
Great!


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-08 22:46:19
So, new Lorne plus a theme Hans banged out on his keyboards one evening? ;)

(Just a bit of satire, guys...not meant harshly!)


Mike2015-11-12 20:18:24
Well, Edmund, you have a point... with the exception of Megamind and The Bible, most official Hans/Lorne scores have Hans doing the main theme, Lorne doing everything else. Nothing new there. ;)


...2015-11-12 20:52:12
Well at least Hans coves co-credit to Lorne. Brian Tyler is scoring loads of Shows and of course he just did the theme but he's the only one credited.


Hybrid Soldier2015-11-12 20:55:44
That's very true... I could name a few projects he did where someone else did more than half, and yet got a shitty credit... lol But I won't !!! lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-12 22:18:59
Why not, Hybrid? :b


Dudu2015-11-12 22:57:06
So...that's 15 projects for Lorne this year. When does that guy sleep lol??has to be the hardest worker in the industry. Can't wait til he gets his well deserved big break!


NM2015-11-13 02:15:31
Lorne is incredible.


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-13 14:12:35
His output is certainly admirable, but sometimes I can't help but wonder whether he puts quantity over quality. He's not a bad composer, far from it, and he's done some things I think are really quite solid - but the majority of his 12-15 scores a year fall into the "competent and forgettable" zone for me. Some of his additional work with Hans notwithstanding, he hasn't yet done anything I'd consider truly great. Composers like Jablonsky or HGW are more hit-and-miss, but their "hits" are much higher than Lorne's best work in my estimation and it makes me anticipate their work far more than Lorne's bi-weekly releases.

If Lorne had a year where he put out 1-2 scores at the level of Transformers or Steamboy or Sinbad or Kingdom of Heaven, that would impress me far more than yet another year of 15 two-to-three star scores.
