Power anthems ???? Obviously you haven’t watched the movie.They would not fit in this movie.<br><br>Balfe’s score is really cool and not expected.Already listened to it 4 times!I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10
Gavin should be listed as conductorBecause Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane").
"Second time"... lolAnother awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.
Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.

Lol as if the initial CD wasn't boring enough.

Holkenborg should have pushed for a release of his Point Break score instead, which was more of the same but at least fun to listen at!

Okay it's been a few days and the score should be out in America too now, right? I saw the movie yesterday and I have to say that it is a very, very good movie. But... I have the tendency to say that if I had not listened to the score before I saw the movie, I would not have noticed the music that much. I mean, the non-score songs play very noticeable, but Junkies (action) cues are very fast paced due to the way the movie is edited. And while this fast-pacing works very well for the storytelling (lots of flashbacks and "wait, let's pause this for a minute"-moments), the music kind of suffers from this. I noticed this in the soundtrack, too... It just feels like the score can't get going. Every time the drums and synths kick in, it's over very quickly. That's such a shame because when you hear Junkies awesome cues, you don't want them to stop. And then, obviously, there is the underscore, which is, well, underscore... It sounds fine in the movie but you probably won't remember any of it.
It would've been nice if there was a Deadpool-suite or something, because Junkie created some very nice themes for the character, but it feels like they can't express fully due to the movies tempo.


Ds2016-02-12 23:50:03
I had pretty much the same impression. It's not bad but it's not a satisfying listening experience.


meta2016-02-13 02:46:29
"Deadpoople"

Since the adverts thats all I keep hearing when I hear Deadpool....

Pity the score meanders...

This is a one star score... So disappointing :(


Laurens2016-02-07 23:44:04
Yeah well I just got through my first listen and I am kind of disappointed too... I feel like Maximum Effort and Twelve Bullets are the main two stand-out action tracks, but they're on the very short side and did not blow me away like Blood Bag, Brothers in Arms, Chapter Doof, The Bog, go on and on... Maybe Man in a Red Suit can be up there too, but honestly I did not hear a lot of memorable tracks first time round... Might change obviously, just my initial reaction. However, I would have preferred to have a lot more music from Junkie and less Tarantino-like 'soundtrack'. I mean, I don't know how the existing songs play out in the film as I haven't seen it yet, but I could have done without some of those songs. And I don't know if it's my headophones (I hope not :) ) but it sounds like the album is mastered too loud so sometimes there is clearly some distortion/clipping going on. Could be intentional but it kind of starts to bother me. I'm going to try some other sound systems to verify this.


mpolonest1232016-02-08 01:49:42
Have to agree with you here. The action music, for the most part, is pretty fun when Junkie lets loose with the electronics (Maximum Effort, Twelve Bullets, Watership Down). I'll even say there are some genuinely pretty moments scattered throughout (Liam Neeson Nightmares, Face I would Sit On).

Unfortunately the biggest downfall of this soundtrack is a lot of the underscore. Junkie's strength definitely lies in his themes, but utilizing them is definitely not his strong suit. I would say half of the music functions well, while the rest kinda falls flat. And the biggest problem; the drums. The 80's style synth works amazing but is overshadowed by the Mad Max drums and strings.

Imo, JXL needs to leave his comfort zone and write for dramatic films. His string writing is some of the best out there, and his action music works when he doesn't fall into the same routine drums and pounding.

Oh wow it's here already (iTunes Netherlands at least...)? I thought this would come out next week... Don't know what made me think that...

While I despise Deadpool and the upcoming movie, the track that was released today is bonkers. I may have to get this soundtrack anyway.


Robert2016-02-02 00:09:30
Just listened to Twelve Bullets and it is indeed absolutely insane. I'm getting this soundtrack for sure.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 12 || 2016-01-24 02:16:55
I wonder what sound Junkie is going to come up with for this. I'm hoping for something completely off the wall and unconventional.


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-24 10:52:50
Me too, although I'm not sure Junkie has that in him sadly...Mad Max called for that too, and what we got in the end was a pretty standard combination of MoS percussion, strings, electronica and electric guitar.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-24 11:10:45
The funny thing is, it'll be out before Bat V Sup but was written after... :D


Zimson2016-01-24 11:58:34
Junkie has some serious talent for action scoring. Brothers in arms was easily last year's most intense track. He is besides Hans the only one who can pull sth like that off so far.


mpolonest1232016-01-24 15:14:56
It seems like it's the producers/directors who tend to keep asking for the same type of action drum music that he turns out.

Junkie has proven that he can write stirring string music, unfortunately his use of electronics always tends to fall short. Here's hoping that this and BvS can change that around.


Frank2016-01-25 02:16:17
He mentioned Deadpool in Fans of Film Music gathering and said he pushed very "left" for this one. So I guess this will be a very different score

This is pretty cool imo, I like the little "Beat It" motif.


mpolonest1232016-01-26 02:59:38
For some reason it reminds me of Chappie lol


ggctuk2016-01-27 19:30:50
Having never seen Chappie or heard the soundtrack, I would say it would easily fit in "The Matrix: Path of Neo". Kind of reminds me of "The Key". I liked those pieces so it's nice to hear something that reminds me of it.

On that topic, was Junkie XL with RCP when he wrote for Path of Neo?


...2016-01-28 00:59:09
Damn... I don't like this. I wish Tom would step away from the pop music/edm genre. His work for Black Mass, Mad Max and even divergent (which has pop elements) was amazing. I shouldn't judge the score by this sample but this doesn't do it for me... Let's hope he delivers a great batman theme:)


Ds2016-01-28 08:25:51
Since most of his career has been precisely in the electronic genre, I guess it's normal some directors hire him because they want an electronic score :-p


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-29 00:22:15
I can't say I really loved it or that it's the sort of thing I'll listen to a lot, but I will say that this sort of music feels like a much more natural fit for Junkie than that Man of Steel/Mad Max modern action music stale percussion drumming hell that we've heard from him so many times already. This allows his more colorful electronica side to come to the forefront and the textures are much more interesting than just BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA-BA-BA-BA BAM BAM BAM BAM.
