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?

And here comes the Lady Gaga watertower hype train again. Three months in advance...for a filmscore...with teasers and premium ultra deluxe editions, minuscule samples, hidden exclusive 128kpbs bonus tracks and probably missing the most important track or theme from the movie...

I mean I am probably gonna love the score but the way watertower promo team works seems more fit for Rihanna then it is for a film score.

Anyway I listen to it and the samples they day it is released.


Mortifer V.2016-01-16 02:01:17
It's two months.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2016-01-14 16:12:01
I would love it if this score turns out to be like a genuine battle between Zimmer and Junkie's music in each cue, kinda like how in Batman Begins you can hear JNH start a cue and HZ finish it. Having HZ's superman theme and Junkie's Batman theme play off each other throughout would be awesome.


mpolonest1232016-01-14 16:25:44
Oh god yes!

Considering that they are introducing Wonder Woman, Lex, Doomsday, etc. I'm hoping that they bring in several new themes.

And of course the suites.....

Is the music in this clip the score? teamcoco.com/video/zack-snyder-superman-clip

Any idea if the BvS Comic-Con trailer music was confirmed to be Hans or Junkie?


Ds2016-01-06 19:55:51
It really sounded a LOT like Junkie. Hope it makes it into the film because it's incredibly epic.


JR2016-01-07 11:20:37
I found it terrible... Hope the score will be better


mpolonest1232016-01-07 15:40:23
Normally I'm pretty dismissive about trailer music, this one definitely stood out to me though. It sounds good, a little bit synthetic but I'm sure it's a demo recording.


Memphis2016-01-10 22:41:28
It was both of them *I think* cannot say for sure as I wasn't there, lol. Have been following him on twitter and he said sometime last year "we mixed the trailer music ..." so I assume it was them together. Also read that they wrote new music together for the trailer.

I'm loving it and it sounds fantastic in the cinema trailers.


Mike2016-01-10 23:23:53
Memphis, that was Junkie referring to the first teaser ("Tell me...do you bleed?"). The teaser has long been confirmed to be HZ / JXL. ;)


Ds2016-01-11 17:42:47
I think the new TV spot has definitely some score in it. Sounds a lot like MoS sound palette.

Ooops I'm sorry. I thought the comic con trailer was the first.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 6 || 2015-12-29 22:00:09
Since it'll be out in less than 3 months, time to launch hostilities... lol


Anonymous2015-12-29 22:56:02
recording sessions plz


Ds2015-12-30 16:09:18
I wonder how it's going to sound. Judging by the trailers, I think of something colder than Man Of Steel, with perhaps more electronics. More Junkie than HZ, actually. I guess we'll know soon enough, shouldn't be long until WaterTower launches the iTunes pre-order :-p

Btw, no Atli this time?


Anonymous2015-12-30 16:32:31
Nor his sister. The vocals are by Dom Lewis. Interesting. "Paranoia" Haha. lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-31 17:27:44
What you just described there sounds like a bit of my worst nightmare, Ds, so I hope you're wrong! :P

Have no expectations about this one either way. Doubt I'll enjoy it; perfectly ready to be proved otherwise, though...


Anonymous2016-01-10 21:39:20
anybody else expecting a two-disc release after MoS, TASM 2, and Interstellar?


Mike2016-01-10 21:53:15
I'd this point, yes, I'd be more surprised to see a single disc release than not...

i wonder what type of drum circle musical invention they came up with this time xD

Mike reply Replies: 12 || 2016-01-08 16:18:12
Am I the only one who's noticed a conspicuous absence of interviews / comments from the composers of this project (specifically Zimmer)? Junkie XL has said a few things over the past year, but Zimmer's been nowhere to be found. He was confirmed for the project, then said about a year ago that ideally each new hero would get his / her own themes.

I already kind of figured Junkie would be taking the lead on this score, but do you think we can take Zimmer's lack of comments as his way of trying to pass the torch on for the DC universe? Or is it simply too early for interviews?


0-^-02016-01-08 16:48:36
I say that is actually for the better. Things should always be kept under wraps. Let the final work speak for itself. Why hype it up, or spoil surprises?


Mike2016-01-08 16:59:46
I agree...but I'm just thinking of it this way: if Zimmer's possibly not moved by this project (which his initial hesitance, and now his lack of comments, suggest), and Junkie XL winds up doing most of the legwork, I fear the score will kind of end up "cold" - harsh, aggressive, and manly, but devoid of much emotional core. Don't get me wrong, I like Junkie's stuff on MoS, but if his contributions had taken center stage, MoS would have been a lot less appealing. At least IMO.

I could be thinking way too hard here. We'll have to wait and see. ;)


Ds2016-01-08 17:49:24
Agree with Mike, the absence of hype, interviews, etc. is curious, but that's because the trailers were released much earlier than usual. In the next weeks we should see much more marketing, and we can expect a lot of interviews, score samples, itunes preorder, etc. They're just waiting a bit because firing all your weapons 3 months before the release would be stupid :-p


mpolonest1232016-01-08 18:46:49
It seems (in Zimmers' case at least) that his usual pre-hype for films has slowed considerably since Interstellar. In the amount of projects he's worked on since (Chappie, Le Petit Prince, Freeheld, etc.) there have been little to no interviews from him.

If JXL is in fact heading this though, I will be really interested to see what themes he conjures. As Divergent proved, he can write emotionally stirring music. Unfortunately the studios seem to insist on him writing the same drums/electronics in each of his scores. Maybe here he will have the opportunity to do something diverse.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-08 20:20:49
The score was completed in August/September...

The film is out in 2 months & a half...


Don't worry, the "hype" is yet to come. And btw Hans really loved working on this one !


Pluto2016-01-08 21:18:04
Hey Hybrid, I know I'm jumping the gun a bit quickly here, so to speak, but what are the chances in your opinion, since you know Hans better than any of us, that he scores the "Justice League" film in November 2017? Zack Snyder is directing it and it seems Hans does like working with him, but then again, I've seen some interviews where Hans states he is not sure he wants to keep scoring superhero films, so do you know much in regard to that film and whether Hans will score it? I know Batman v Superman hasn't even come out yet, but I thought I'd ask this question. XD


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-08 22:52:14
lol you know that I actually tried to bring this up to him, out of curiosity... I got ignored, so no idea !! lol Too early maybe, but I can't imagine he, Junkie & Zack haven't talked about it...


Ds2016-01-08 23:07:25
Hahaha you guys are already speculating on Justice League, but before that we have Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman... for which no music-related announcement has been made. Are they trying to keep everything secret? Or not sure yet which path to follow? Or still trying to persuade Hans & Junkie to manage the whole thing?


Mike2016-01-09 22:22:20
"Don't worry, the 'hype' is yet to come. And btw Hans really loved working on this one !"

The second part of that is good to hear. I just know originally he didn't really want to work on this movie, and I was worried that his lack of any comments so far means he kept those feelings. ;) I wonder, will Superman get a new theme here, like Batman did with the "New Batman Theme / A Dark Knight"? I certainly do hope he decided to employ Superman's MoS theme more unabashedly than in MoS. If we can hear a reprise of "What Are You Going..." in a grandiose rescue or action scene, I'll be a happy guy. ;)

As for Justice League, I wouldn't be surprised if Hans ends up spearheading the project. It seems like they want to give the DC universe musical consistency - something Marvel hasn't been able to say for itself until very recently.



Hybrid Soldier2016-01-09 22:50:38
Even if Hans wouldn't compose "Justice League", Junkie would return for sure...

Let's not forget he worked on MOS and Bat V Sup, but also did 300 ROAE for Snyder (who... actually directed it)...


Mike2016-01-09 22:52:58
I wouldn't be surprised if Junkie were the main guy for Justice League, with Hans giving a roadmap of "this is how you should do this," possibly contributing a main theme and a cue or two, then letting Junkie and co. go to town. ;)


Mike2016-01-09 22:56:15
And for that matter, since Hans did say he wanted each character to have their own themes in B v S, that has to mean one thing: those themes will stay with the characters into Justice League. So presumably, the Hans / Junkie imprint will be there still by the time Justice League rolls around.
