This is a seriously good score....but the temptracking is rather problematic. The love theme is directly from Braveheart, a lot of the action in No Going Back is Mount Doom from LOTR etc....but still better than some of that synth nonsense peddled by the Junkmeister elsewhere.Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through ParisDoes anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)
First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.Where can we listen this score ?It's a good score, nice blend between orchestra and synths.<br><br>But, i think WW is more interesting score
I'm listening right now, one of the best works by Tom, by far.<br><br>Beautiful choir, great action tracks (even there is a great renditions of the themes, Windflower with that version of Shrike's theme is gorgeous) and multiples themes.I'm guessing CONFESSIONS & REGRETS is Tom Sells out his Clone?I have done this for... so many things ! :PThanks so much!01 - THE ISLAND AWAITS YOU => 1M1 MAIN TITLES + 1M2 NIGHTMARE #1<br>02 - WHERE DO THESE TUBES GO? => 1M2 MISSING A SHOE + 4M24 ROUTE 39<br>03 - SECTOR 6 => 4M19C CENSOR CHASE PT 3 + 4M19D THE OUTSIDE WORLD<br>04 - STARKWEATHER => NOT IN MIXES (Album idea or suite idea ?) + 6M33H MVC PT 6 THE BIG R<br>05 - AGNATE UKULELES => 2M10 AGNATE UKULELES + 2M10B UKULELES 2 - ELECTRIC B<br>06 - YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PURPOSE IN LIFE => 3M14A RELEASING THE MOTH + 3M14B LIMA'S DEMISE<br>07 - MASS VEHICULAR CARNAGE => 1MD HEALTH CLUB (ALBUM SONG VERSION)<br>08 - RENOVATIO => 5M32B TRACKING THE CLONES<br>09 - I'M NOT READY TO DIE => 3M15 STARKWEATHER'S DEMISE (EDITED)<br>10 - THIS TONGUE THING'S AMAZING => 7M43 THIS TONGUE THING'S AMAZING + 6M38 CONFESSIONS & REGRETS<br>11 - MASS WINNINGS => 7M44 MASS WINNINGS + 7M45 RETURN TO INSTITUTE + 7M45 RETURN TO INSTITURE PT 2<br>12 - THE CRAZIEST MESS I'VE EVER SEEN => 3M16-17 A PRODUCT ON THE LOOSE + 3M18A CENSOR CHASE PT 1<br>13 - SEND IN THE CLONES => 5M29 TRAIN STATION CHASE + 5M31-32 IN LA - CALVIN KLEIN<br>14 - MY NAME IS LINCOLN => 8M52 THE END OF MERRICK<br><br>;)
Hybrid is it possible that you could do a crossreference of what cues here = the ones on album like you did for King Arthur and Transformers 4?And maybe there's too much synth work in both cause... Andrew K worked on both ?! lolMothersbaugh isn't the only person out there to use 80s synth, you know. You are after all, on the website named after perhaps the greatest pioneer of it in terms of film music. <br><br>Also, there is nothing about this film that screams "Thor Ragnarok" ripoff. If anything, the appropriate place to compare is Black Panther- however, as Aquaman and his mythology predates Black Panther by several years, that argument is rendered moot.<br><br> Sure, we have regal similarities (king, set in kingdom, evil half brother) but it literally ends there. The story is quite basic, but nowhere like Ragnarok in its entirety. Ragnarok was about two brothers putting aside their differences to stop their evil sister from unleashing Ragnarok itself, whilst Aquaman is about Arthur Curry being forced to reconnect with his Atlantean heritage, and it's explicitly a quest for him to clear Atlantis from a corrupt, purist ruler who wants to hurt the surface world because of how the humans have been mistreating the seas. Aquaman is very much its own thing, and it doesn't need any such comparisons. And I bet, it will stomp past Ragnarok at the box office overall. <br><br>the main theme is quite similar to Jackman's Kingsman ( the first three note)<br><br>andd..<br><br>I assume it is the studio's mandate for RGW to go (and adapt..or imitate?) Mothersbaugh's Ragnarok with its 80s synth. <br><br>----<br><br>Having seen the movie, i understand why RGW chose the 80s style, because basically, Aquaman is Thor Ragnarok underwater. <br>Dont get me wrong, the visual spectacle is amazing and colorful ( in a good way), some of the cinematography is downright breathtaking,but i really did have a hardtime enjoying this movie in its fullness beacuse the blatant Ragnarok ripping-off here and there.., and dont get me started on the story...<br>Really, the visual did the heavy lifting in this movie ( and it succeeded in overcoming the weak storyline)Um, is there a freaking Pitbull remix of Africa on here? What the heck?

I stand by my theory that Junkie XL ruined the soundtrack. The man does not make music; he makes noise. The annoying Batman motif at the beginning of Beautiful Lie sounds like exactly something he would do, though there seems to be some suggestion that Zimmer came up with that.

I am going to be so disappointed if he ends up scoring Justice League.

Brent2016-04-11 02:22:49
I only half agree with you. Junkie can write some amazing highlights (think Run All Night or Many Mothers from Mad Max). However, he does make an incessant amount of "filler." He can write great tunes when he wants to. It's just, most of the time, it gets convoluted under all the heavy synth brass and rediculous over-the-top percussion. If he can learn nuance, then I think he can churn out an A+ score.

And, Batman V Superman, at least in my opinion, is by far not his worst.

Mortifer V.2016-04-11 21:56:49
That Batman motif is fucking awesome.

Mortifer V.2016-04-11 21:58:22
But adding it right in the beginning of the album and that particular track was a mistake in my opinion.

Edmund Meinerts2016-04-11 22:46:42
I don't agree. It sounds like a parody of post-Inception RC scores. It makes Zimmer's two-note motif from Begins look like a subtle, complex character portrait.

Medigo2016-04-12 12:38:42
well it starts out the movie so no wonder it also starts out the soundtrack

Mortifer V.2016-04-13 19:24:41
It doesn't start out the movie, @Medigo, the movie starts with the haunting piano notes that come right after the bombastic Batman motif in Beautiful Lie. The main Batman motif comes at the end of the Metropolis scene.

Madagascar 32016-04-16 13:01:35
Madagascar 3 is better example of Junkie/hans talents in my opinion. So lively and fun compared to this. Awesome catchy character themes and dynamic orchestration. I hope they do more scores in that vein.

Okay, thank you. I think it's not very similar. But there's a part of davinci code in problems up here. That's obvious. But tears of the sun? meh.

it's completely the same. but i don't bother. glad he used it, as it's the masterpiece of BvS...

Edmund Meinerts2016-04-08 15:41:50
Not very similar? Sure, the atmosphere and arrangement is quite different, but the melody itself is pretty much note for note. That's not a matter of debate - it's a fact.

El Baradei2016-04-08 15:44:32
I see what you mean.

Its also not the first time hans zimmer used the same theme again. true romance is in broken arrow - exactly the same.

Yeah, and there's a three-minute cue from King Arthur in PotC: Dead Man's Chest! :P

"Vigilante" sounds so much like The Winter Soldier theme.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 6 || 2016-04-05 16:57:39
A bit late to the party, but what the hell, my thoughts:


-Wonder Woman's theme/"Is She With You?". Maybe it's just because of the meh-ness of the surrounding material, but it feels like that theme comes out of nowhere like a flying brick and smashes you in the face with personality. Very cool, energetic riff (and that cue even has a Man of Steel quote at 1:59 - you guys, COUNTERPOINT! THEMATIC INTERPLAY! SEE? IT IS POSSIBLE!). I do have my doubts about its ability to carry an entire character/film, but we'll see how that pans out when it does.

-The Bruce Wayne theme/"Beautiful Lie". It's no great melody and it's straight out of Tears of the Sun, but again, it's so much more lyrical and emotional than anything else in the score it immediately makes a positive impression whenever it appears, especially at the end of a sludgy action cue like "Black and Blue".

-The quite powerful reprise/variation of the theme from "If You Love These People", one of my favorite parts of Man of Steel, in "This is My World". Track takes too long ending, but as a fan of James Horner, I can look past that. :p

-At least some parts of "Men Are Still Good" (I had to cut it into seven (!!!) parts to extract the good bits). Especially the fiddle bit and the part with the rising and falling string lines from 4:30 to about 7:30 that actually kind of reminds me of Gollum's theme from Lord of the Rings, weirdly enough. And, the loud part with the chanting choir at the end is one of the rare portions of this score that actually hits my guilty pleasure buttons.

-The large amount of themes/motifs in general at least keeps the score from becoming too monotonous, even if they never mingle convincingly.

-The fact that this score is making me reappreciate Man of Steel.

THINGS I DISLIKED - well, everything else, but standouts.

-Batman's six-note motif. BAAAAM BAM-BAM-BAM-BAAAAM BAAAM. I thought Hans had resolved to leave that sort of brutish fake-brass horn-of-doom simplicity behind him after Interstellar and Spidey 2...but to hear it in the very opening seconds, no less, was extremely unpleasant and immediately soured me towards the entire score. It just sounds so much like cheap, derivative trailer music. You can practically see irritating cut-to-blacks with every pounded note. I do like it a bit more when it's used subtly and softly, just a low piano or timpani or bass drum.

-Lexmark Luthorberg's theme. It honestly feels like Zimmer had no real concept or inspiration for him and, with no time left to come up with anything, decided to fall back on his overused bag of "quirky" tricks from Pirates/Sherlock Holmes/Rango/Lone Ranger, except without the catchy hooks and themes that make those scores fun. At least it lifts the score out of its gloomy murk, though.

-Pretty much all the action music, generic Junkie Drums(TM), obligatory This Is Important Dammit Choir (at least it's real and not the hilarious AEIOUs this time) and all. Convincing thematic interplay is particularly missed in cues like "Do You Bleed?" or "Black and Blue", which feel like noise for noise's sake.

-On the note of those themes, the almost total lack of any narrative to the music. Everything is so compartmentalized. You're either listening to Batman music, Superman music, Lex music, Wonder Woman music, action music, sound-design music...these elements practically never combine or suggest a story. What's the point of coming up with all those ideas and then never following through in the meat of the score itself? I realize this is partially a consequence of Zimmer's suites/concepts/ideas approach, but that approach has led to scores with great narrative, like Spidey 2 or Pirates 3 in the past...

-The sound design cues, dear GOD. As many have pointed out, "Must There Be a Superman" is particularly dreadful; some of it sounds like someone forced the descending-strings "madness ostinato" from Mad Max: Fury Road through a blender of synthetic distortion, and it would be hilarious if it wasn't so bloody unlistenable.

-Everything on the "deluxe edition". Redundant, unlistenable or (in the case of "Vigilante") both. What a waste of space.

-Just the overall gloomy self-seriousness of it all. I blame Snyder (and the whole grimdark fad in many movies at the moment - I actually thought it had been dying out a little, but this film seems to be bringing it back in force) as much as I do Hans and JXL for that, but still. Is it too much to ask for a bit of FUN and MELODY? Damn near everything in here is so crushingly heavy! As a consequence, the music doesn't really work for me on either an entertainment or an intellectual level, for me. I'd give it a ** 1/2 - it's not without its redeeming features, but it's a step down from Man of Steel (I'm surprised that some of the major "old school" reviewers like Clemmensen and Jon Broxton actually seem to like it a bit better), and honestly just feels like Zimmer wasn't really all that interested or invested in the project. For that reason, I welcome his alleged decision to put superheroes aside and pursue other genres (be it drama, animation, straight action, adventure, whatever) that I've always felt are better-suited to his talents anyways.

Mike2016-04-05 20:23:25
I can agree with pretty much all of that, really. I'd give this one a 3 star rating overall after having heard the music in context, maybe even a 3.5-4 in the film itself, cause it does carry the film pretty well, IMO. It's one of the few Zimmer scores in recent years where my initial reaction was one of disinterest after the first couple listens. I wouldn't call myself a fanboy necessarily, but usually I consistently find the man's scores entertaining, if not always great. But my first reaction here was, "Is that the best they could do?"

Ds2016-04-05 20:29:15
I would consider myself as a fanboy, but I agree 100% with you nonetheless Mike :-p

Mortifer V.2016-04-05 21:08:48
'Blood of my Blood', 'Fight Night' and 'May I Help You, Mr. Wayne?' are fine tracks. 'Vigilante is by far the worst, especially since we already have its ending in 'New Rules'.

I can agree that more melody and less ambient/sound design cues would be great, but I enjoy 'Must There Be A Superman?' especially since I've seen the scene it's made for.

I don't understand how the score is not 'fun'. It's a very fun listening experience for me, just like the film was. 'Do You Bleed?' is amazing. 'Black and Blue' could be better though, I must admit.

I love the Batman theme, but I think for a 9min suite there could be much more interesting material.

Oh, and I also really like Lex's theme and the character himself.

Mike2016-04-05 21:15:20
One thing I appreciated about this score from the beginning, though, is the near-total absence of temp tracks. There's "Launch" for the credits and the Krypton cue near the opening of the movie, but otherwise, everything is either new music or freshly arranged versions of pre-existing material. This score really does sound different and new compared to Man of Steel, and Hans, Junkie, and co. really deserve credit for that much. THIS is how to work a sequel score!

And when I say the score worked in film, I do mean that, too: cues like "Must There Be a Superman?" are still awful, but they "make sense" on screen.

mpolonest1232016-04-05 21:35:05
I think the score would have worked better on album if the deluxe edition had been used effectively. There is plenty of space available for a good hour of additional music. Especially for some of the stronger unreleased stuff. Leaving out the Kryptonian material is pointlessly well, since some of the film variations of it are fairly different that it's use in MOS.

Instead we get 20 minutes of lame rehashes. What a missed opportunity for more development on Superman's/Batman's/Wonder Woman's thematic material you hear in the film.

Man of Steel's album may have missed some big action cues, but at least you got development and suites which added to the music. I don't know who is responsible for assembling Zimmer's albums (at least this one) but they should honestly reconsider how they think people want to hear the music outside of the film. I've never seen a bigger discordance between music on album v. Music in film.

Mike2016-04-08 00:11:14
I was also surprised this score got 2 whole stars for the "in film" side of it at Filmtracks, while TASM 2 got one star and one star only, no differentiations. But you'd think a guy like Clemmensen would appreciate the tone, and even some of the themes, from TASM 2 way more than a score like this one. Oh well. I guess the comments about his methods never do accomplish any good here. :P Still, I could see where he was coming from for a lot of his BvS review and I'm not gonna pick apart what he wrote. He liked the music less than I did, but in the end I think we all have variations on the same reaction to it, and I think we all welcome Zimmer's desire to do something new.

They are just extensions of Is She With You?:

The scene where Bruce sees the file on Wonder Woman
The scene where Wonder Woman discovers the Justice League files.

Well I think there's a general negativity surrounding that movie, on the internet at least. Anything seems good to criticize it.

Maybe it's not doing so well, but it's following the same pattern as Harry Potter 7 Part 2, which I don't think was considered as a commercial failure back then.

NotSoAnonymous2016-04-05 01:45:53

Zimmer may want to retire, but he's going to be coaxed into another one. Superheroes movies have simply gotten too big for anyone to ignore. I can already hear the interview now.

"I wanted to retire, but so and so said this to me and something in my head clicked..."

Mike2016-04-04 23:11:12
Haha, yeah, I'm with you on that. I, for one, would welcome Zimmer moving on to other genres, cause I think he's feeling burnt out with superheroes at the moment, and his best scores are the ones where he really feels refreshed doing them. But who knows whether this initial "resolution" will continue to hold.

Hi. I saw the movie twice and overall its good.
The music is very enjoyable, though muddled in the action cues sometimes, and the listening experience is much more immersive after the viewing.
I arranged a 15 minutes suite with the batman material used through the score.

Really dull film and dull score to match. Seems the last few scores have just been him writing ever thinner sketches and getting his collaborators to flesh them out.

From kung fu panda 3 where he wrote 2 minutes of piano sketches before leaving and handing off to Balfe, to the incredibly thin batman smashing riff in BvS he pushed onto XL, just doesn't seem like he's coming up with those big creative ideas the last year. The interview basically confirms the same.

Saw and LOVED the movie (wasn't expecting to after all the negative reactions!). I also have a new appreciation for the score, and even can now forgive cues like "Must There Be a Superman?" The score worked very well overall, and while I still wish the Superman theme was used more, it worked when it was used, and I will admit - begrudgingly - that Hans and co. knew what they were doing.

I caught the Krypton motif from MoS about 4 times:

--immediately following Their War Here when the Kryptonite was discovered under water
--when Luthor examined the Kryptonite following the Batmobile scene
--when Luthor used Zod's corpse in the ship wreckage
--when Lois tried to get rid of the Kryptonite spear.

These moments should have been on the album instead of some of the lesser tracks. It would have rounded things out a little better and given a bit more of MoS' mood to this album.

Also, the end credits should be this:

Launch from MoS, with a brief bit of the buildup from the Sketchbook suite
Do You Bleed? (along with the intro section of "Their War Here")
Some of the Lex Luthor theme
Beautiful Lie

There were also two uses of the "Flight" (Love) theme that were left off the album. It's funny how well rounded the score is in the film, but how badly the album presentation makes the score sound.

I wonder if the end titles cue was a re-recording or was just a temp of Launch?

I really can't put my finger on it, but it is obviously not an original soundtrack...

Apologies if this has already been asked but does anybody know the music that plays when superman dies and they are stood over him? It features what I think is a female soloist. It was my favorite piece from the film but I can't find it :(

If these credits are true, this confirms what I already thought with Chappie: Mazzaro contributed to the most interesting material! I guess here he was in charge of incorporating music from Man of Steel.

Where's the credit for "Tuesday"?

And now that we're all commenting about how much Mazzaro there is on here, he CONVENIENTLY removes his credit from a cue. Sure...

Mike2016-03-30 17:38:51
I don't doubt these are real, honestly. They look real and make sense with what we know so far. Even the Day of the Dead correction doesn't phase me. It sounds 100% Zimmer to me anyways. It may be incorrect, but I'll stick with this until we learn otherwise. It's probably close.

It's official. Hans Zimmer has retired from the superhero genre.

Hah, didn't he say the same thing after The Dark Knight? I've long since learned not to trust a single thing Zimmer says in interviews. :p

We'll see what happens. If Snyder is still attached to Justice League after the mediocre reviews to Man of Steel and the bad reviews to Batman v. Superman... he may try to get Hans and Junkie back on board.

Glad to see that almost all action material is included in the score. Must be Junkie his influence. Cause Hans is terrible in that department compared to all other composers

Just noticed something, although I could be wrong. Is "Tuesday" (Doomsday's Theme) a slowed down and warped version of the 'Kryptonian' motif?

Leo reply Replies: 3 || 2016-03-24 21:37:15
So the theme in A Beautiful Lie is actually Superman's Theme? o:

No, this is Bruce Wayne's theme. Especially young Bruce Wayne.

It's Martha theme so in some way Clark and Bruce theme

It's Bats and Supes bromance theme.

A real question around, i really don't want to start any criticsm or bash or anything at all. but i'm hearing always descriptions or talks about a new composed batman theme. heard and heard and heard every cue, especially men ar still good, as it's called also the batman suite. but i just can't figure it out what exactly IS the batman theme? i'm only hearing ambient music, but no melody to be called batman theme. so any advice from others where i should hear the so called batman theme?

thank you :)

Mortifer V.2016-03-28 13:59:55
Listen to 4:44-7:11, 10:12-14:04 from 'Men Are Still Good'; those parts are the best representations of the Batman theme imo, especially 11:38-14:04. Also, 'Do You Bleed?' is pretty much the 'Batman in action' theme.

Yes, it's from the Man of Steel Sketchbook, minute 5:46

Some Batman stuff, then Beautiful Lie

Lex Luthor's theme is also played during the end credits, if I'm not mistaken.

After 2 views I will like to share the correct order of listen (Chronological Order) and the listening is very different that the original album tracklist.

01. Beautiful Lie
02. Their War Here
03. Blood of My Blood
04. Vigilante
05. Red Capes Are Coming
06. There Were Hunters (Title belong to a Wayne's speach with Alfred before the fight with Sups but this track sound after the "Big Bat Tomb Nightmare")
07. Can I Help You Mr. Wayne?
08. Day of the Dead
09. Must There Be A Superman?
10. New Rules
11. Do You Bleed?
12. Power Up Here
13. Black and Blue
14. Fight Night
15. Tuesday
16. Is She With You?
17. This Is My World
18. Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite)

Micah2016-03-28 07:50:08
This seems correct, but New Rules and They Were Hunters should be switched.

Micah reply Replies: 3 || 2016-03-25 04:51:07
These are my notes from my initial screening of the movie. Feel free to correct me or add your own notes. I also don't know how to add the spoiler tag, so I've added a spoiler alert in the title. Look away now if you don't want the movie spoiled.
Beautiful Lie - Plays during the opening credits of the movie. Bruce Wayne's parents get shot and he "discovers" the Batcave.
Their War Here - Plays during the Metropolis battle from Man of Steel, which we see from Bruce Wayne's point of view.
The Red Capes Are Coming - Plays early in the movie when Lex appears. The ending is from Luthor's conversation with senator Finch when it pans to the painting.
Day of the Dead - Plays during the scene where Superman rescues the girl during the Day of the Dead celebration. Variations play during Clark's conversation with Martha and the beginning of the senate hearing.
Must There Be A Superman? - Plays during the Knightmare sequence. The quote is from the interview sequence.
New Rules - The quote is from Alfred about Batman having to adapt to Superman's "new rules". I think this plays during that same scene.
Do You Bleed? - Plays during the Batmobile chase and ends with Batman's initial confrontation with Superman where the quote is from.
Problems Up Here - Plays when Lois is airlifted to Luthor before the big battle. The title is taken from a quote that Luthor says to Superman.
Black and Blue - Plays during the major battle between Batman and Superman. The title is taken from a Luthor quote during the same conversation with Superman that the previous track is from.
Tuesday - Plays when Doomsday first appears. Interestingly enough, the name Tuesday is taken from a god of war and rhymes with Doomsday. Probably titled this to avoid spoilers.
Is She With You? - Wonder Woman's theme. Plays when she appears during the final battle. Variations play earlier in the film (the highlight being when Bruce Wayne sends Wonder Woman the picture from World War I).
This Is My World - Plays during Superman's sacrifice. The quote is from Jonathan's Kent speech about Martha which Clark says to Lois right before his death.
Men Are Still Good - A quote from Bruce to Diana at the end. The themes are played throughout the movie, but this is a suite.
Blood of My Blood - The title is taken from Luthor over his pride of creating Doomsday, literally from his own blood. The music plays early on in the film while Lois interviews the terrorist and Superman saves her.
Vigilante - Plays during Batman's first appearance where he brands the sex trafficker.
May I Help You, Mr. Wayne? - Plays during Lex's benefit. Mercy Graves asks this to Bruce Wayne.
They Were Hunters - The quote is taken from Bruce's speech to Alfred about his parents and how Wayne Manor was built. "They were hunters". The music plays during this same scene.
Fight Night - Plays during the amazing fight scene with Batman where he rescues Martha Wayne. Probably the coolest moment in the film.
One final note: The music sounds better in the film than it does on the soundtrack. I have a greater appreciation for the music now that I've seen it on screen. There are several great pieces of music that did not make the soundtrack including many great Man of Steel themes (my favorite is the Clark piano theme during the bathtub scene with Lois).

Ds2016-03-25 08:30:07
Thanks for sharing!
This is accurate for the most part, except the first part of Men Are Still Good is not a suite, it's the ending music of the movie, just before the credits. Only the 2nd part is the Batman suite.

Also, the bathtub scene music was more or less "This is Clark Kent" from the MoS soundtrack (or a very slight variation)..

JavsJurado2016-03-28 07:30:32
"When Batman rescues Martha Wayne" Yeah right, when he rescues... his own mother?

Micah2016-03-28 07:47:36
Haha...oops. Too many Marthas in this film.

It's also interesting to note that "Their War Here" starts during the ending of the same scene that "Beautiful Lie" plays during (when Bruce is ascending with the bats).

Just having seen the film here are a few observations and thoughts from me.

First off, the album really doesn't do the music justice. This is one of those score where, while there is nothing major missing, the recording sessions really will help the flow of the music. Also, Superman is very well represented in the film. Almost all of his major themes return, and it's a real shame that the Kryptonian motif is nowhere to be found on the album. The best use is definitely the end credits piece.

Now onto the highlight; WW's theme. Holy shit! Having seen the music in context, I have to say this one steals the show. Her major appearance in the final battle, combined with the electric cello, had everyone on their feet. Interestingly enough, the theme is used a few times throughout the movie, with some pretty cool variations.

Overall I really have to say that I dislike the album even more now. The actual use of the music in the film works wonders, especially paired with the unreleased material. That being said, I still think Man of Steel was a far better score. Batman's theme is never fully developed, and the lack of interplay between his and Supes theme is a huge letdown. Also, not using Superman's full theme is an odd choice, regardless of the tone.
