For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessions
I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)

I know this was a “band-jam” score but I’m surprised at how much of Wallfisch’s voice I hear throughout. Mainly the chord progressions, I keep hearing the DNA of It and Bitter Harvest with a dash of Peter Pan.

As for the score itself, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to give this a full listen. The mix between orchestral/electronic/gospel/jazz surprisingly feels cohesive and never slows down.


Mephariel2018-07-31 17:07:01
One of my favorite scores of the past decade with Zimmer's name attached to it.


Mike 2018-07-31 18:21:40
This score is really solid. I'm not really familiar with Wallfisch's solo stuff, so I can't tell who did what on this one, but the end result is really cohesive. The themes are great, too.


mpolonest1232018-07-31 19:03:48
Going by what Hybrid said I’m guessing everybody had a hand in everything, definitely a lot of cross-pollination of styles (aside from the obvious Pharrell material). I definitely hear Hans’s voice in the cello writing and Rocket Cues, and “Katherine Calculates” sounds very much like The Da Vinci Code.

And Mike, if you haven’t heard it yet check out “A Cure For Wellness”. IMO Wallfisch’s best score, which showcases his horror/fantasy/orchestral styles all in one.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-01 13:17:45
There is a lot great stuff by Wallfisch, like the mencionated Bitter Harvest, Bhopal, Hours...

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!

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.

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

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.
