And top gun:maverick....big 4Yeah seriously, he hasn’t done much in a year plus. He’s definitely taken some time off for touring and other things, which may be a great thing for his inspiration... who knows, but I’m guessing the time off has let his brain take a break and maybe he has a ton of new ideas for the big 3 (WW:84, Dark Phoenix, Lion King) coming up in the next year and a half. <br><br>Or maybe I’m just hopeful/wishful thinking lol.Plus, Blue Planet II came out last year. That score is as far from Widows as possible.I'm not sure, but I think this site is not the right place to ask for copyright, since it is "almost official". But, here you can find the label of every officially released album you want, so you can ask the company labeled.That collaboration was barely a year ago. This is literally Zimmer's first significant score since then. You can't deduce a pattern from two data points.
IMDb says that Lorne is one of the 3 composers of Battlefield V. I am confused.... :DWell, if you check what Hans Zimmer did recently there wasn't much material for him to write a good theme too. A lot of it was types of movies that were synth type music. I think The Dark Phoenix and Wonder Woman (apart from his amazing theme for her already) will have some good typical Hans Zimmer feel to it which I am excited for.For the first time of my life but with sound experience, I assist on that one too.  A very good job from all that team.<br>I only was surprised to not see Hans Zimmer itself and quickly understood that it was "the world of..." and not HZ live ! No regret for my first even if I'm a bit frustrated and regret my mistake ;o)<br>Do you have a tip for me to do it again and avoid that mistake again? When you purchase a ticket, it's hard, you have sometimes to go deeper to see that, finally, he's not gonna be there!<br>Have a great day U all.<br>I wishCool Hybrid! Been at the concert in Oberhausen last Saturday. A lot better then expected to be honest. Pedro's Oogway's Ascend was very good, Pedro outdid himself there (at the 2nd Zimmer concerts I thought he wasnt that great compared to Richard).<br><br>
Yeah! The hell are the other comments about though? The Last Stand is miles ahead of X2. You weren't even saying TLS was the best X-men score, you were just saying it's Powell's best score. Man people are dumbHi, I want to add some seconds of 8 track for the background of my small documentary about races, my first one, is it possibile to ask for copyright? Should I write to some email addresses?<br>I'm kind of the same way, even on a personal level. The synth and power anthems, even from the Media Ventures era, is just kind of getting old to me. The incessant momentum, the lack of thematic progression, it all wears on you eventually.I think you really nailed how I feel about this score. I don’t personally mind the tense electronic elements (this is music that I can enjoy on its own level) but I do feel let down by the lack of a theme or any solid motif to anchor the music. Especially in the emotional cues.<br><br>The one thing that I keep coming back to is how this sounds so much like something Johann Johansson would have written. I actually really like his music style, but it is pretty jarring to see Zimmer do minimalism on this level. No objections here, but I can’t wait to get some exciting Zimmer music again.Not for nothing but it's kinda odd how Zimmer has been declining ever since, IMO, his collaboration with Wallfisch on Blade Runner 2049.... <br><br>Honestly, I've been straying towards John Carpenter's Halloween 2018 and horror synth ever since....is Zimmer retiring or something? Because I'm finding myself not into him so much, anymore.
I honestly wasn't expecting much from this film on a musical level, but some tracks that are available are OK to listen to. McQueen has never been a proponent of larger-scale thematic music in his scores, he seems to be a mood-inspired person, and Zimmer can do that very, very well. <br><br>Coming back to the music, Zimmer seems to have embraced his textural roots. 2018 has been all about texture really in the action films, i.e. Black Panther's percussion layers, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Widows. Thematically, there seems to be a solemn progression for Marcus that reappears in "My Son", that relies on familiar elements (i.e. drone strings layered on top of each other, lower bass accompaniment), and some of the action textures in "We Have A Job To Do" and "Perimeter Check" is a nice callback to the Media Ventures style of things. <br><br>I'm admittedly disappointed with the fact that there is nothing beyond residually, well-anchored momentum and tension to the score,and the album length is shocking. But it is what it is. I love the underlying, throbbing synth bass ripples, I've always had a soft spot for them. <br><br>Honestly, it's a one time listen for me. I'm more excited about his dual superhero bonanza return next year- Wonder Woman 1984 and X-Men Dark Phoenix. I'm definitely not expecting him to use John Ottman's brilliant theme for the latter, although I will definitely be impressed if by slight chance, he does. The "Money" is quite soothing in a melancholy way. "The Calm Before The Storm" uses some worthwhile sombre piano treading that I'm always a stickler for.Come to Bratislava, Slovakia too.I wonder with all of the Easter eggs if Jackman will incorporate some character themes like possibly the Imperial March for Storm Troopers Or Disney themed for the Disney characters@Anonymous on the Blu-ray it should have surround sound. Just that it's out on iTunes in Australia already - which is how I got it - and iTunes bonus features are obviously only in stereo.<br><br>@Ahmad - the benefit here is really all the film version edits of the cues we already have on the album. And some of them are quite different from the album ones....<br><br>The tracklist I came up with for now for the iso score. Total runtime is 2:08:16.<br><br>A Storm Is Coming (Logos) / Julia / Good Evening, Mr. Hunt	4:51			<br>Self-Destruct	0:23			<br>Plutonium Trade / A Terrible Choice	6:14			<br>The Manifesto	1:46			<br>Fallout (Main Titles) / Your Mission (Part 1)	2:07			<br>Your Mission (Part 2)	2:21			<br>Free Fall (Part 1)	1:57			<br>Free Fall (Part 2)	2:14			<br>Grand Palais / Consequences Of Love	2:01			<br>Bathroom	6:12			<br>No Pain, No Gain (Outro) / As Ugly As They Come 	2:09			<br>I'll See You In My Dreams / Widow Bar	2:33			<br>The White Widow / Should You Choose To Accept...	5:38			<br>Busy Day Tomorrow	0:41			<br>Framing Ethan / The Exchange	6:37			<br>Escape Through Paris	6:11			<br>Steps Ahead	1:11			<br>Je Suis Désolé	1:04			<br>Unfinished Business	0:34			<br>Did You Ever Choose Not To?	1:51			<br>You're Mine Now	0:30			<br>We Are Never Free	4:52			<br>Widow In London	1:45				<br>Trapped	3:14				<br>The Mission Is Terminated	2:02			<br>No Hard Feelings / The Exhortation	6:46			<br>Stairs & Rooftops	6:25			<br>Kashmir	7:10				<br>Julia (Reprise) / Fate Whispers To The Warrior	5:06			<br>And The Warrior Whispers Back	8:20			<br>I Am The Storm (Part 1)	4:12			<br>I Am The Storm (Part 2)	1:21			<br>Scalpel & Hammer	3:47			<br>Cutting On One	1:25			<br>The Last Resort 1:48			<br>There's No Reason To Be Sorry / Mission: Accomplished (Curtain Call)	4:51	<br>End Credits	6:28I wonder what the quality on the disc will be like but definitely not expecting lossless. Three commentaries and the isolated score and language tracks. That's a lot and the movie is not short lol. <br><br>In general, I don't think we're missing much to begin with (but it's really cool and should be done more often). There's a cool bit where the "Syndicate" theme was used I think in the film version of "Escape Through Paris" and the album version doesn't have that bit.

I guess this one should benefit from an expanded release. Most of this OST is basically theme suites, and I might be wrong, but I watched the movie yesterday and there's A LOT of unreleased music.


jewen2016-06-06 23:45:42
I Totally agree with you.

Yes! We need a expanded realese (for both, Film and Ost).

He's started his solo career what, 11/12 years ago. If he was, he wouldn't still be around.

He's a talented guy, works his ass off and delivers what he's asked to do.

So, I have already listened to it - from start to finish - multiple times now and I simply love it more and more with each time I press "play"! My god, the CD is only hour long and not only there is 6 prominent themes, but also - I think - more than 4 smaller ones that are built upon them. I basically discover new things every time I listen to it. How in the world was Ramin able not only establish, but develop them in such a relatively short time frame is beyond me. This is an amazing score and not only did it deliver everything I love about Ramin's style (with some callbacks to his previous work, such as similar approach and use of instruments with The Horde and with the Dothraki), but it has also expanded upon it (those woodwinds and mainly brass - oh my god, I want to hear more of those horns and trombones in the future). I adore it!

Also, bragging time - the suite here was done by me. I wanna thank Hybrid Soldier for providing me with the opportunity, I had a great time editing it! :)


Brent2016-06-12 02:27:21
The film was absolutely atrocious, but this score, in my humble opinion, is one of Ramin's best works (Pacific Rim is the only one that I can think of that is better). I would hope for a sequel just to hear more development on this score. :)

I would like to know which tracks were composed by Brandon Campbell

jewen reply Replies: 0 || 2016-06-07 15:17:54
I like to share with you what I think (after watched the film) is the Chronological Order for the album tracks.
First of all, I must to point that the album realese have a various "Theme Tracks", for example:
Warcraft, The Horde, Medivh, Honor, Lothar or Gul'dan....
And many music that we can hear along the movie is missing in this realese.
I made this tracklist based on my perception of which of this "Themes" sounds first in the movie or at least a piece of them:

1. The Beginning
2. Honor
3. The Horde
4. Lothar
5. Medivh
6. Forest Ambush
7. Strong Bones
8. Victory and Defeat
9. My Gift to You
10. Gul'dan
11. Half Orc, Half Human
12. The Book
13. Whatever Happenes
14. The Incantation
15. Two Worlds Colliding
16. Llane's Solution
17. Mak'gora
18. For Azeroth
19. Warcraft

And if you like to know on what part of the movie I based my tracklist, be careful

*SPOILER ALERT*

1. This track, or part of this sounds on the ”Production Logos intro”
2. A little bit of “Honor” theme can listen in one of the first scenes, between Durotan and his pregnant wife Draka.
3. Next to the scene with Durotan and Draka we can listen this track along the Prologue scene when part of The Horde travels trough the portal to Azeroth.
4. We met Lothar, and some scenes traveling to Stormwind or flying to Karazhan.
5. We met Medivh in Kalazhan.
6. Forest Ambush (exactly this)
7. The conversation in the night between Garona, Lothar and Khadgar while they are traveling to Orc Camp. She explain a little bit her origins and talk about her Strong Bones.
8. Durotan and his Orcs met with Lothar and the King but is all a trap, and the loss for Lothar is really bad.
9. Medivh is sick and have a conversation with Garona, and gives her a magical gift.
10. Gul’dan manipulates Orgrim to betray Durotan.
11. Lothar still sad about his loss, and Garona try to encourage him.
12. Khadgar travels to Dalaran and discover the true behind Medivh sickness.
13. Draka says goodbye to his baby.
14. Khadgar free Lothar and join forces against Medivh in Karazhan.
15. While, Orcs and Humans fight in the Orc Camp and Gul’dan open the portal again.
16. King Llane and his troops rescue the human prisoners but the portal closes and the end is very tragic.
17. After the end of the battle Lothar comes to make his part, and the Mak’gora scene is for sure one of the best in the entire movie.
18. The Alliance of Azeroth is born and it’s ready for fight.
19. End Credits

Bondo reply Replies: 3 || 2016-06-01 23:00:11
For those who have seen the film, is the OST presented in chronological order? And is "Warcraft" an end credits suite? It works well coming right after "For Azeroth"


Hybrid Soldier2016-06-01 23:09:17
I think there are a lot of theme suites in the there... Warcraft does come at the end, and I think "The Beginning" at the beginning from what I remember... The second half of the OST does look chronological to me...


Bondo2016-06-01 23:16:24
"The Beginning" comes at the beginning? Guess I should've guessed that... lol


Lejti2016-06-02 09:03:04
The "Warcraft" track is a little bit different from the end credit music, just like it was in Clash Of The Titans.

jewen reply Replies: 0 || 2016-05-28 18:48:05
For once my fears not become real with a movie score.

Not. Warcraft Score is not Pacific Rim additional music.

Not. Warcraft Score is not Game of Thrones bastard.

Yes. Warcraft Score is just Warcraft Score,
And what a original score that's Ramin Djawadi has wrote!

I love how the Main Theme is implemented in some parts of the tracks along the album.
The music for the Orcs (A.K.A. the Horde) is a brilliant mix of beautiful and darkness. And I consider that this music is the central part of the album.
That's good, ok, but this make that the music for the human heroes (Allianz of Azeroth) is really really scanty and not developed at all.

Not the case with Medivh theme, OMG what a magnificent theme!
Listen how is mixed with the Horde music is just great.

My biggest surprise is the few action-tracks that this soundtrack includes. Coming from a movie that talks about WAR is surprising the slow pacing in a lot of tracks and in general is my feeling with the Album experience.
Nothing bad I must say, only strange .

Now 8.5 out 10 is my score for this amazing work. Probably if this music work well in the film I will turn up to 9 or more, Who knows?

And yes, of course....listening this you can breathe Real Epic.

jewen2016-05-20 12:52:35
A little bit of "Pacific Rim" here and there, but I will keep my faith in the complete album experience, and that it will works in the film.

This piece "Warcraft", might be an Opening Credits? I bet for this...


GR72016-05-26 23:30:12
Totally Pacific Rim in the end of the cue. ! But it sounds quite well for Warcraft at the beginning (very martial feeling)

Dfault2016-04-28 14:54:42
Thats funny you say that Edmardo, as I Think the ingame music of WoW is one of the worst aspects of the game. Whereas a Lineage2 has really really good ingame music.

I guess tastes differ ^^

Well, Macejko would disagree with you Edmardo. And stop using my brother's last name.


Edmund Meinerts2016-04-28 19:16:52
World of Warcraft has some of the best game music, period. Mists of Pandaria is particularly great, but they're all solid scores!


Zimson2016-04-28 20:21:54
They get better with every expansion. I can't think of a game with more immersive music and that's saying something.
I agree that MoP is the best yet, Jade Forest and Valley of the Four Winds have absolutely beautiful music.


Edmund Meinerts2016-04-28 23:20:19
For me, the most immersive game score (not best, necessarily...but the one that never fails to IMMEDIATELY transport me into another world) is Skyrim by Jeremy Soule. Mists of Pandaria (on which Soule was one of the composers) gets serious points from me simply because parts of it sound a loooooot like Skyrim, including the "Valley of the Four Winds" track you mention!


Zimson2016-04-28 23:54:21
Agreed. "Serpent Riders" from the soundtrack album sounds like Soule all over the place btw. A lot of today's film scores can't live up to that if you ask me.
Guild Wars 2 remains his best solo effort imo. Haven't got around to playing skyrim much, though the main theme is goosebumps-worthy.


Zach2016-05-07 23:20:31

Perhaps, but I read somewhere that some of the themes from the game were used which got me extra excited to hear this!
