He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.
John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !
Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)

Is it in chronological order.
If not, does anyone know what order it should be in?
Thanks

Sounds a lot like Horner about 10 minutes in. Not that it's a bad thing.


Yumbo2017-04-01 09:17:28
Does anyone know who the female soloist is?


Dragonseeker2017-04-01 10:55:44
Solo Vocals: Kim Burrell & Clydene Jackson

According to the booklet credits.

Hybrid, do you know how Hans was involved with Adele's Grammy performance? Benjamin Wallfisch thanked him in a post for bringing him onto the project.


Hybrid Soldier2017-02-13 19:48:23
Hans & Ben arranged the song for Adele. Like they did with Pharrell 2 years ago for his new version of "Happy".


Ei182017-02-13 19:52:55
Awesome! Thanks!

I'm greatly surprised that the great Herbie Hancock is also in this terrific score

Hybrid, with which tracks did you make the suite?

ei18 reply Replies: 3 || 2016-12-01 01:18:53
Thanks for the suite!! Is it really not coming out until June 2017?


0-^-02016-12-01 06:07:51
Looks more like January 6th to me.


Ei182016-12-01 16:44:14
I thought that too, but other scores on this site have the release date with the month first.


Ali2016-12-31 04:39:37
It would make the most sense if it came out January 6th, since that is the official date for the movie release everywhere. They have no reason to not release it until June.

And how come Hans' name isn't there in the announced list of Oscar eligible scores (for "Hidden Figures")

Dudu2016-12-14 06:50:44
I think that's because of the rule that disqualifies a score where too many people are credited (ie. The dark knight)...maybe hz chose to drop his name so the score could be eligible

Hey Hybrid, do you by any chance know, what the hell is going on on DUNKIRK's FB page? They've been live streaming the same view since last 13 hrs with the same ticking music.

Extract !

Oh my, I'm Speechless. thanks Hybrid for the suite.


Mike2016-12-01 03:33:03
Nice! Did Zimmer, Wallfisch (& Pharrell) do roughly equal amounts here? Or is it mostly Wallfisch? Mostly Zimmer? :P


JamesT2016-12-01 05:18:58
Oh, wow. Spectacular!


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-01 18:02:21
It's Pharrell's project.


Anonymous2016-12-01 22:51:25
so he did most of it????


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-01 23:01:46
The main piano theme is definitely is. He was the basis of the music, some cues are pure Pharrell which I didn't include in the suite. Hans & Ben helped him at his request.

But that sort of score is usually a lot of jamming in the same room, don't try to figure out too much who did what here, sounds a bit like everybody, it's Pharrell, Hans & Ben !


Mike2016-12-01 23:05:34
The RCP-process never does cease to surprise us. lol.


Gotham Rogue2016-12-14 02:54:45
I like the excerpt a lot. It's certainly unique - it has that strange spin that they love to put on scores (particularly recently) - but it also is undeniably an RCP score. It seems like a good blend of these two methods, much better than some recent efforts. Hope the full score reflects this!

A Golden Globe nomination. Hope it'll win!


Anonymous2016-12-13 01:42:16
Normally I'd say no, but since Pharrell is involved, it actually has a chance of winning because people would scream racism if he didn't win lol

Thank you...

We can read.


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-08 21:51:55
Wouldn't be right without Jack Afrogarrix playing Captain Obvious on every new score on this site!


OskarC2016-12-08 23:51:42
Come on, why are you writing an almost identical post under every score?

The opening 50 seconds of the suite is absolutely amazing. Man I so wish to hear a score in this spirit coming from Hans or Ben soon.
