I can't say that I am happy.  I love Marr, but I don't want Marr in Lorne's position.  #BalfeforBondJohnny Marr has been confirmed to be performing on the score...<br><br>Is there going to be a separate discussion thread for this btw?Dark Materials was anything but "a pure orchestral sound" lolIt largely has to do with the types of films he scores.Meh, you're not alone. Not a big fan of Desplat, especially when it comes to his contributions to pre-established franchises.
Track 9. Stop The Crane and 11. Burn Or Jump<br><br>Excellent.One of the most elite scores produced.I might get hate for this and Desplat might be a cool guy, but I have no idea why he gets so many Oscar nominations... please don´t kill meMan, I am actually excited to hear Balfe's score for Bad Boys for Life - the clips he's posted on his Facebook page sound awesome and like they could truly honour Mancina. The Balfe components sound epic and the Mancina integrations dynamic. What's to fear, right?  <br><br><br>I do fear that someone makes Alan Myerson to distill these 100s of performers, choral and orchestral, to make the whole score sound like an 80s casio synth again - please don't!! Balfe's had huge success with Dark Materials and Gemini Man with a pure orchestral sound - don't fuck it up, PLEASE.meh to desplat. this score needs jackman...
The "Knight March" theme is really potent. Hans should release his suites for this! I know it'll never happen, but a CD of just his original demos for his various projects would be really fun to hear.I also want to remind people that Cate Shortland is directing this film. This is a director that said James Horner destroyed the movie Avatar with his manipulative  music.<br><br>I wouldn't be surprised if most of the music is more tame without melodies. But then again, Disney is really the composer here, not Desplat.Shince, outside of the admittedly great main theme I do find Silvestri's Avengers music to be fairly forgettable...the sort of standard watered down orchestral sound that Marvel loves, not badly composed or anything but not particularly distinctive and a bit disappointing coming from a composer who in the past was capable of stuff like Judge Dredd, The Mummy Returns or Van Helsing.We never usually have the credits of Lorne's projects.  Could Hybrid get the credits of Lorne's projects?Some additional credits from the cuesheet:<br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steffen Thum<br><br>COFFEE TIME<br>NIGHT VISITORS<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Steve Davis<br><br>FIRST CONFRONTATION<br>VAN ATTACK<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Sven Faulconer<br><br>MOTORCYCLE CHASE<br>URIE TALKS TO HENRY<br><br><br>Lorne Balfe, Max Aruj<br><br>BUDAPEST<br>TRAIN RIDE<br><br><br>Steffen Thum<br><br>MEET JACK
But the style in Bad Boys 2 is totally different to the style in part 1. so the explanation doesn't make much sense.I have met with Tony Scott, on the filming location of Spy Game I asked him, who will compose the music for the film, he answered Hans Zimmer. :) And it landed at HGW. And Tony had worked with HGW only since then. <br>Mancina dropped out because, he wanted to do something new for the movie and didn't want to repeat himself, and MB and JB didn't like the idea, and they wanted the same music style, so MC left the project.Last time Disney hired Desplat, he ended up... not doing the score at all...Oh, shit, i forgot Valerian, such an amazing epic/space score.<br><br>TerrificThe Deathly Hallows, Valerian and Godzilla by Desplat had quite memorable melodies IMO.

Hey Hybrid, is it true that Atli is scoring Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines movie? That would be fucking dope.


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-22 18:13:22
Ooooooooh. That would be awesome.


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-22 18:14:30
Maybe he got hired by accident because they thought it was a sequel to Mortal Instruments?


isildur2017-12-23 19:50:33
lol Edmund!

Hey Hybrid, soundtrack.net & IMDB list Atli as the composer for Hitman's Bodyguard, is it true?


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-18 12:21:17
Yes !


isildur2017-06-18 13:21:34
Oooh! All out action score from Atli. I love it. Now that Lorne is getting more mainstream projects it's high time Atli got some too. He's got so much talent.


Felix2017-06-18 13:59:32
It's really great, but Atli's Scores don't get ever a release...look on all the great TV scores....also don't get releases....


Edmund Meinerts2017-06-18 14:19:49
There's a difference between the fifth season of some generic cop show not getting a score release, and the score to a fairly high-profile action movie (a situation like Ghost in the Shell notwithstanding). I can't think of many Atli film scores that never got an album. Wouldn't worry about this one.

The prodigal son returns! I like Atli a lot, sad that he doesn't get the same sort of assignments that Balfe/Djawadi/Jackman do. But this sounds pretty good!


Abdusalam Shlebak2016-11-18 06:15:57
Wunderbar wow

Epic work by Atli! For me one of his best.

It's nice to listen to, but I don't really think it's one of his best. It makes for a better album than e.g. The Eagle, Babylon A.D. or Season of the Witch, but there are individual themes and moments in those scores that far outshine anything in Bilal (there's nothing here to rival "Crusades", "Babylon Requiem" or "The Return of the Eagle"). And I don't think it's anywhere near Mortal Instruments, which is his best overall score so far.

Still, like I said, it's a decent score and nice to hear from a guy who's been MIA for so long. Just not the glorious return I had hoped for.

For those "shocked" by Inferno, here's some excellent old school adventure score by Atli. :)


isildur2016-10-14 03:43:24
I still don't understand why Atli doesn't get some nice, big projects. He has so much talent. Liked the suit. I hear a bit of Prince of Egypt, which is a good thing.


Anonymous2016-10-14 08:52:36
I was not shocked. Just disappointed to be proved again that Zimmer lost his touch to write decent, memorable music.


Morgan Joylighter2016-10-28 05:45:56
RE:Anonymous, he has done no such thing. Interstellar was only two years ago. And the second half of Inferno contains plenty of music which is AT LEAST decent, but it seems most people are tuning out before they get to the good stuff. Zimmer fans these days are so spoiled...twenty years ago the same score would have been considered mind-blowingly epic. How many times does the poor man have to reinvent himself before fans will be satisfied?


Morgan Joylighter2016-10-28 05:46:47
And I'll add he simply hasn't been hired to write the "memorable" music recently. You can't accuse him of losing his touch for simply doing his job as he is asked.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-28 11:01:35
That's the thing - he doesn't have to reinvent himself every time, in my eyes. I wish he would sometimes just kick back and do what he does best.

Also, a lot of the "decent" stuff in the back half of Inferno is only so because it's straight reprises of DVC and A&D.


Anonymous2016-10-29 11:36:55
Exactly. Recent years he tried to pull a Madonna. Change and experimentation for the sake of experimentation and looking and sounding like 'I am so edgy, I still have it'.

Like every artists his best work was in the middle part of his carreer.

The good stuff he releases recently are usually rehashes or reprises of magnificent works he wrote many years ago.

Also Hans used to be special with his synthy approach years ago. But these days every videgame, movie or trailer has it so it is total not special or exciting anymore.

But each has their own opinion :p

As for Bilal. Awesome work!
