TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.
It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsameNo no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?
Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isnít going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.
LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!

I'm impressed by this soundtrack. Very detailed, subtle even in the mayhem tracks. Beautiful mix as well. I feel I'll be listening to that one for a long time. Congrats to Lorne Balfe!

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 ?

Looks like the song by Chris Cornell from the movie got released, but not the score? I can't seem to find it either :(

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.


rockhound2016-01-16 07:43:42
it is at least on spotify


Ds2016-01-16 11:08:01
I downloaded Spotify just to listen to this one, and I like it a lot, great work!! I hope it's available for purchase soon.


CardosoNaval2016-01-16 11:20:41
Yes, the soundtrack is already in Spotify... Awesome! The film has not been released here in Brazil, so the soundtrack and the book will decrease anxiety.

You're quite something, aren't you ? ;)


Tell us the truth now, you're some guy who did internship with Lorne and got fired ? lol


-O.so2016-01-12 23:35:51
Nobody has fired me!
Simply I do not like the music. What is missing is the 'wow' factor. Do not come here with their negative opinions clear or what's going on?


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-12 23:38:10
Well we got your point the first time. No need to act like a 12 years old hater. If you don't like, no one forces you to listen, and even less to vomit your hatred on this site ! Move on sir, get a life !


-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.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-12 23:45:44
And as I said, we heard you the first time... ;)


-O.so2016-01-12 23:48:12
Alright!
Since I can continue to give my opinion


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


Anonymous2016-01-14 03:41:19
typical with RCP. that's diappointing

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?
