I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.
Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.Itís definitely one of Bayís best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Canít cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subjectUpset about success? Sounds like someone doesn't know a thing about reasonable criticism. :p<br><br>If anyone likes Balfe, then good on them. I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world. Especially if people are still gonna be excited about hearing the work of someone else when a different person is hired (i.e. what JL might've been).
Can we please change the subject !!!!!!!!it is so boring now.This page is ment to be about the sound track to 12 StrongThere you go again, accusing me of being upset about Balfe's success when I never said anything like that. Stop putting words in my mouth.AgreedThe point is Edmund and others  donít need to keep getting upset about Balfes success.Dont reply and just focus on other conversations.No one here is interested in hearing anyone bashing any of the great composers on this site from Remote. Grow up or move on.Appreciate the voice of support. :)
Good god, this Balfe/Anonymous guys is wreaking havoc! Good thing Djawadi's fans are calmer than Balfe's.Jesus Christ, what a mess! What is wrong with you Balfe fanboys? Edmund comes in trying to settle down the situation and add some nuance and you just curse him out? He even admits to liking Lorne, basically states how the top comment is far too harsh, defends Balfe, and all he does against him is call out Michael for borderline bullying someone else into worshiping Balfe.<br><br>After all of that, all you can possibly say in response to him is "go away you John Powell fanboy"? For saying one thing against a guy basically being a mindless fanboy. Which by the way is an unbelievably poor argument because I've seen Edmund criticize Powell scores before. Is Edmund not aloud to prefer Powell? He didn't even bring his music up once in this discussion! Oh no I can see the responses now...<br><br>"superultramegoo go listen to Transformers 5 for the 50th time.we dont need youre stupidumb comments here !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Balfe has won many awardso tyou cant say any thing bad about him you Jablonsky fnaboy.stop with these demoralizing comments.!A Star Wars score that John Williams himself worked on, however briefly. An interesting time to be a film music fan indeed. <br><br>Hybrid, do you know if Powell was already hired before the director switch on Solo?Happy birthday Mr BalfeI have the same concern, but at the same time I'm really really excited and curious to hear what Williams' sensibilities filtered through Powell's voice will sound like. Those are two of my absolute favorite composers (like, honestly, those two and Hans, top three). I just hope Powell can figure out a way to make it sound natural and organic and not forced/awkward. And maybe if Powell doesn't have to worry about coming up with a main theme it leaves him more time to fine-tune the balance between the two composers' voices (or else write cool secondary material). Giacchino only had four weeks on Rogue One and while he did a decent job, it wasn't as smooth an adaptation as I'd have hoped, especially coming from the composer of Medal of Honor. My expectations are higher for Solo.<br><br>I couldn't give two shits about the movie itself but I'm grateful it exists if only because it will give us this exciting, one-of-a-kind score situation. :)<br><br>Also, there's gonna be a Star Wars score with a page on hans-zimmer.com - who'd ever have thought?

While I'm always happy to see HGW get new assignments, I'm also always a bit disappointed when it turns out to be a thriller (which is the case nine times out of ten with him, these days).

I want to hear him in Narnia/Kingdom of Heaven mode again. The only music like that he's written lately are his three cues from Exodus, which are really great, but it's not enough... :(


Saurabh2016-12-18 02:18:43
I guess it's the kind of approach Affleck prefers from HGW. It's the same basic style heard in Gone Baby Gone and The Town where you have an ambient soundscape aided by some slow strings and a guiter.

HGW is extremely adept in writing some aggressive orchestral cues as in KoH, Narnia and Prince of Persia. Hitite Battle was my favorite track from Exodus. Too bad he doesn't do many such projects.

And given the outstanding work he has done with Ridley Scott, its a shame he won't be doing Alien: Covenant.


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-18 11:39:11
Yeah, Affleck seems to have assumed the "director who gets HGW to provide boring thriller scores" mantle from Tony Scott. I'm not really sure what it is with Scott...earlier in his career he would get scores with big themes, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, even Enemy of the State to an extent. But from Spy Game onwards pretty much all the scores to his movies fell into the same boring thriller-score pattern. Wonder what happened to turn him off to bold thematic film scoring? (Then again, I wonder that about most of Hollywood these days...)

"Hittite Battle" and "Tsunami" were both great. A little teasing glimpse of the HGW of old.


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-18 11:52:00
I "mostly" agree with Tony Scott's score BUT Dťj&#224; Vu is fantastic in every way, and it has lots of themes... lol


rockhound2016-12-18 14:41:09
Days Of Thunder, Crimson Tide and Enemy Of the State are simpson/bruckheimer productions. Thats why these scores have big heroic themes and an epic feel. but if u listen to The Fan, thats already harry gregson-williams style, although its a zimmer score. i really liked the team tony scott/harry gregson-williams. its a special thriller music style with a very specific sounds. afflecks Gone Baby Gone was also very lovely with a beautiful theme and a couple of nice motifs here and there during the suspense stuff. the new movie has a different setting than the other affleck movies, so maybe harry is using less electronics and more orchestra.


Hari Haran2016-12-18 19:27:03
Edmund, hush.

The amount of people wanting Trent Reznor to score his upcoming Batman film frightens me.

I'd rather have HGW in thriller/superhero mode for Affleck any day, in comparison.


rockhound2016-12-18 20:08:21
sound clips on amazon.de. the music sounds great and nothing like The Town or the tony scott movies.


Brent2016-12-18 20:08:25
^ Harry better score that Batman film.


Ds2016-12-18 23:49:44
I hope HGW scores Affleck's Batman movie, seems like an obvious choice actually. Affleck keeps his relationship with HGW, and Batman remains in RCP territory. Nice deal :-p


JamesT2016-12-19 04:29:11
Love the sound clips and excited for the release on Friday!

Tracks like Ybor City remind me of early sounds of Smilla and Deja Vu; Three Years, Four Months has a Passionada and GBG flair to it; Loretta Figgis is beautiful!

Hybrid: any idea who is doing the vocal work? Lisbeth Scott??

I'm also really looking forward to The Zookeeper's Wife!

wait, HGW is not doing Alien:Covenant? I thought he confirmed before that he is doing this!
