Call me crazy but I really would have been interested to see what Tom's Godzilla would sound like under the direction of someone with good musical taste such as Dougherty.<br><br>Not really a huge fan of Desplat's work but I would definitely kill to hear Douglas Pipes take on this project.@Edmund Hahahahaha..... yeah, I've always heard that too. Even the chopping string section in the background of both pieces is vaguely similar.Zimmer did some additional music on this?Sounds to me like the big dramatic Bach-like theme at the very end of the Kraken. Only a slight similarity though :pWow Edmund, I'm impressed... where do you hear this theme in The Kraken? They sound like completely different pieces of music to me :-D
I'm not upset (I like Junkie, but I LOVE Desplat's), but i HOPE for Desplat or PipesToo bad, but I hope this means Desplat is back.I see, thank you for answer!Sounds excellent . Balfe has really found a unique voice now . I have listened to the YouTube link for the album constantlySo... long story short, it actually looks like Tom will NOT be doing Godzilla after all, according to director Michael Dougherty. Check the director's Twitter account. Even though I enjoy Tom's music, I'm much more excited about the prospect of a Douglas Pipes Godzilla score (or the return of Desplat, tbh).
I asked this before to lorne on Facebook . He said the roles can mean different things . Some composers assistants help with running the office . Some deal with making sure the music works to the latest cut of film . Some arrange<br>And orchestrate also . Means varied tasks .Please!!! Come to Mexico!!! I agree with Leonardo!!!Please could you also come to MEXICO!!! You have a lot of fans in Center and South America!! :)Yeah, just got announced on Film Music Reporter, although the rumor was flying around long before that. Really disappointing for me, since the director Michael Dougherty usually works with Douglas Pipes who is a great, underappreciated composer.It really is too bad HGW isn't scoring Alien. He is one of the best film composers and he scores so few movies these days. A real shame!
Great score.....I have a question and I would love if somebody can answer it - What such an assistant of composer is doing? Is he just making coffee or actually making music? I am really curious, I know that Lorne was assistant too!@Hybrid: Is true Tom go to compose Godzilla: King of the Monsters?nice thanksIt's OK, he got to use it for the Kraken in Dead Man's Chest! ;)

@Hybrid, how was the work between Michael Bay and Lorne Balfe? I mean, for what i read before, Bay is hard in terms of music. Lorne knew how to create the music? Or Bay gave him directions about the musical direction? Thanks


Trumus2017-02-01 07:47:51
@Hybrid also - why did he use Lorne and not Steve? Either way it was a great choice and ended up not be generic


David2017-02-01 08:19:44
Probably busy with Ninja Turtles 2 and Deepwater Horizon?


Andres2017-02-01 09:57:09

The soundtrack is missing the main theme.
In the movie, GRS is fastly approaching the embassy while this song plays in the background.
That song is also played at other key moments, but it's not on the soundtrack.
It's a huge disappointment that this soundtrack is incomplete.

Frenchans reply Replies: 1 || 2016-01-18 12:40:42
Good job from Lorne Balfe even if he has still a lack of inspiration. Maybe he should take a break :D

Best tracks in my opinion:
-Hero (similar to "The Burning Bush")
-Calling Home
-Forgotten
-Going Home

Hybrid, what does it mean that Hans Zimmer is the score producer? I thought he has overseen everything.


Hero2016-01-18 14:46:02
my thought aswell. but i have to say, that the "action" cues are truly horrible. sorry to say, but it's just noises. action cues can have some melodies aswell.

the other tracks, which are silent, are very beautiful and emotional. best tracks for me:

- Hero
- Downtime's The Worst
- Calling Home
- Forgotten
- All The Hells
- Going Home

The cue "Hero" is really a shameful copy of "Burning Bush" ^^. That's why i can enjoy it as a melody, but copying it in that way is not a good move.

JamesT2016-01-18 04:21:03
Have not seen the film yet. Despite the ongoing exhausting, unwelcome, and continuous rating on another individual, this score is two things:

1) One of Lorne's best, period
2) One of my favorites

Can only image how well it serves the film! Curious how much stuff is absent from the release.

I meant ranting, lol


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-18 08:46:49
A lot, there's basically around 2 hours of music in the film, plus like half an hour of suites, which are featured in this release...


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-18 08:49:13
As for the big retailers like iTunes, Amazon & co, it'll come...


Brent2016-01-18 08:50:40
Just came back from a showing. The score actually serves the film very well, much better than I anticipated. Other than the final action scene (which in this case, could be a short film in of itself, as it's extremely long), is more suspenseful and emotional than typical Michael Bay bombast. Don't get me wrong, though. There is still giant drums and brass, which in this case, is a good thing. ;)


Brent2016-01-18 08:59:44
And, I will add, even though I still wish Jablonsky had gotten the job, Lorne did a fantastic job!

After 2 listenings on Deezer, I find this score very pleasant. Nice themes. Nice Sounds. It seems to fit well with the kind of motion pictures Michael Bay did. Isn't that the main point of a motion picture soundtrack ?

If you have iMusic, the individual tracks in this release can be searched and saved to your library; however, for those who wish to PURCHASE (like myself), that will have to wait until whomever is responsible for failing to list this in the Store gets his/her head out of his/her nether cavity and adds it.

-O.so2016-01-12 23:43:39
I have the right to express my opinion! If I want to listen to the music to still like to see it turn. Then I'll do it! Since I did not ask you. Have no problem with Remote Control but many composers are good only as additional composer.

Prott2016-01-13 02:08:38
Nice preview. It has that kind of "Bad Boys 2" feeling to it. Maybe that's what the director was aiming for... Can't wait to see how it works with the picture (and the rest of the material, which is - as opposed to Bad Boys 2 - sometimes very emotional). :-)

By the way, if anybody knows - Lorne shared a footage from a string recording session that took place at Air Studios. However as far as I hear there are no live strings in the suite. Is this the final version from the album/movie or a mockup? It would be awesome to hear this beautiful theme with live orchestra. :-) Thanks


MaCarthur2016-01-13 05:43:26
really sounds good looking forward to hearing the rest.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-13 08:39:41
Prott that string section is the last album track !


I originally put it in a 12 min suite, but Lorne thought it was too long I had to cut things down !! :D


Adam2016-01-13 08:45:37
Hey Hybrid was Steve Jablonsky involved in this at all? Any additional music like when a lot of the RCP guys work together?

I am looking forward to this one.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-13 09:11:03
No he was not involved, and from what Lorne told me he did that one pretty much alone...


Prott2016-01-13 22:52:23
Thanks Hybrid. I will definitely watch the movie "just" because of the score. :-) By the way, judging from the track lengths it seems like there are no suites this time around. Did Lorne left them out?


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-13 23:16:01
Actually Prott, the OST IS the suites, mostly... lol

To play the game of comparisons I'd say it's more like BHD meets Lone Survivor meets Terminator Genysis.

The main difference with Lone Survivor (and I mean Jablonsky's score lol), it's that it's driven by piano & electric cello. Some big drama theme driven tracks and obviously some electronic mayhem percussive action tracks.

And that trailer, nope. The trailer was from July, Lorne just finished this score like 2 weeks ago lol...


Ds2016-01-03 00:26:34
Thanks for replying. Really anticipating it now, I hope you're able to upload something soon :-)

Btw, did you know that the release had been pushed back in Europe? It opens on March 30th now. One week after BvS, and they hope to get some money?? Lol


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-03 00:33:06
They did the same with Kung Fu Panda 3, march 30... I don't know what's wrong with them...

Well at least between Bat V Sup, KFP 3, 13 Hours, and HZ's tour starting the week after, it'll be total RCP fest ! lol


Ds2016-01-03 00:51:00
Total fest, yeah... Thankfully the US release dates did not move, so we get 2 scores this month already!!

I'm a bit worried about 13 Hours because they might push it even further, like they did with Pain & Gain. It was pushed back, and back, I can't remember how long I had to wait to watch that one.


Brent2016-01-03 01:38:34
I'm probably beating a dead horse by now, but Hybrid, do we know why Jablonsky didn't return for this movie? Anything between him and Bay?

By the way, I'm super excited to hear Balfe's score. :)


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-03 09:00:50
I tried to investigate this, and honestly I don't know. From what I heard Jablonsky was not fired / didn't start it. I don't know, he has a big schedule, maybe he passed that one cause he didn't want to do another Lone Survivor ?


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-03 11:25:17
Oh and Ds I screwed up, Lorne corrected me, I checked the wrong trailer !

The second trailer indeed has score in it, one of the themes at the end ! :)


Ds2016-01-03 11:37:33
Great!! I just loved that bit!


Prott2016-01-12 20:19:08
Hybrid: Indeed, the theme that is featured in the second trailer is even in this suite (1:48 - 4:00). And it's amazing! Can't wait for the whole score. The description (BHD meets LS meets Terminator: Genisys) sounds very enticing. :-)

Ty Scott reply Replies: 0 || 2016-01-12 00:00:01
Sounds pretty decent so far, but I wonder what Lorne's action cues will sound like as the suite has the patriotic, more dramatic elements. Of course I expect the movie itself to be a typical Michael Bay movie (all explosions, no substance), but a good musical score like what Hans did with Bay's Pearl Harbor would be a silver lining.

Ds2016-01-02 23:47:10
I was really wondering if we were going to have a release... now i'm delighted, and i can't wait to hear it.

What style is it, Hybrid? Ambient electronic like Pain & Gain, guitar driven like Lone Survivor, exotic and rough like Black Hawk Down, or something more emotional and grandiloquent like Pearl Harbor?

Also, there was a nice, bombastic music at the end of trailer #2, is it from the score?
