An interesting album arrangement given the 1994 album arranged the tracks into suites and it seems that's not happening here (and we all know how much hans loves his suites). Seems like it's going to hit every major note that the previous Legacy set does and then some.Does this mean that He Lives In You and Mbube are not new recordings, or at least not entirely new recordings?do you have Informations about a limited edition ?<br>(like BR2049, interstellar,...)it's a complete new recording1.      “Circle of Life”/“Nants’ Ingonyama” – Performed by Lindiwe Mkhize; African vocals performed by Lebo M; written and composed by Elton John and Tim Rice; “Nants’ Ingonyama” written by Lebohang Morake and Hans Zimmer; produced by Hans Zimmer; vocals produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>2.      “Life’s Not Fair” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>3.      “Rafiki’s Fireflies” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>4.      “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” – Performed by JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph and John Oliver; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>5.      “Elephant Graveyard” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>6.      “Be Prepared” (2019 Version) – Performed by Chiwetel Ejiofor; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Hans Zimmer and David Fleming<br><br>7.      “Stampede” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>8.      “Scar Takes the Throne” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>9.      “Hakuna Matata” – Performed by Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, JD McCrary and Donald Glover; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>10.  “Simba is Alive!” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>11.  “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – Performed by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Luigi Creatore, Hugo Peretti, George David Weiss and Solomon Linda; produced by Pharrell Williams<br><br>12.  “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” – Performed by Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>13.  “Reflections of Mufasa” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>14.

The movie is like 30 minutes longer than the original so I don't think it can be the same all the way through.Hybrid did Hans do everything the same? or is there any difference in this score? Yes or no :DProbably not.Hybrid, I counted only 9 tracks from Zimmer. Is this the complete score or will there be a separate album with more music?Incredible work !, I admire you Hans Zimmer !.<br>Jaime Altozano (Youtuber music), he had a talk with you, and talked about interstellar music. I meet you more, thanks to his videos :)
The most colorful score by Ramin! I dig it!This is not a best soundtrack of Hans, but the theme "Gap" and the first two minutes for me are very good, no good....excellent.no :(Michael, that's my impression with some Zimmer scores: he composes a suite with the themes, hands the rest to his collaborators and supervise the work. But at the end the cue sheets will give us the information.Lorne did the great majority of the onscreen cues. Hans spent most of his time on this score writing the Moriarty Suite (which is longer than on album and has a few versions).
Is it possible to get full credit list for this score? I'll love to know which tracks Lorne worked in.Why soundtrack albums are made? Because most of the times a well edited album is a much better listening experience than the music as heard in the film, complete and chronological. At least  9 out of 10 cases I prefer to listen a well edited album. There are very few cases when a complete album is needed, in my opinion. The other thing is: I only have about 40-60 minutes patience for an album listen.<br>In Hans' case it's different sometimes because I really enjoy his suites and experiments.@iamtommie44<br><br>may i compare with mainstream music for a minute here. albums are important because putting one together is an art form on its own. the best albums are often not the ones with only the good tracks. but of course there are also those you buy because of track #2 or #3<br><br>in hiphop for example, mixtapes are a big thing. they seem like a freer album form. a way for artists to test new ideas and project directions. based on the response, those ideas would show up in albums. it's a nice way of testing things (or us lol) since our taste, especially in music, changes often. sometimes these artists want to see what works and what doesn't. i wouldn't mind buying experimental stuff from my favorite composers to be honest.<br><br>but anyways, dundirk is a very good album if you ask me. it's one of those that i can listen to in a loop and not get tired of. the tracks carry you along the journey. and by the time you reach the end of the last track, it loops right back into the first one...I have higher hopes for that than his normal work, he seems to do better work when not scoring big blockbuster action. (see The Mountain Between Us, one of his best scores)Such an incredible theme! Thank you Hans. When will it be available to buy?

IMO, easily one of the best action-adventure scores. Mancina and his team knocked it out of the park. There's not a single track that I don't like. Love them all.

Compare this score to the scores we have today and you'll see how messed up a lot of modern scores are. What happened to THAT type of music? Adventurous, exciting, beautiful.....Seems to be gone nowadays.


P.S. I still don't know why they didn't include the "Leaving Wakita" track in any of the official releases of the Twister score. I think it's only available on YouTube....ripped from the movie. Not a great quality, but I'm glad someone did it. It's an awesome track. Pure Mancina.

The "Leaving Wakita" track is featured on this release (the "La La Land" one).
It's track 9 "Walk in the Woods".

"What happened to THAT type of music? Adventurous, exciting, beautiful.....Seems to be gone nowadays."

Lost in Space, Transformers 5, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, most animated films, the Destiny videogame soundtracks, The Hobbit films, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Blue Planet II, Solo: A Star Wars Story, the final 2 Harry Potter films, Most John Powell works...

If you're speaking purely for RCP and generic action films, the answer is Hans Zimmer devolved and the industry devolved with him. If you're speaking for artful, obscure films, those scores have almost always had little substance besides sounding nice aesthetically.

Mr Tweedy,

Oh, wow! Had no idea. So much for my research then......lol.

Thanks!

superultramegaa,


Good examples, but - as much as I love them - they're just not the same as Twister and say, Jumanji. Hell, put Braveheart in there as well. Fact is, the 90's were an AMAZING decade for adventurous, melodic, exciting, beautiful scores. Scores that "lift you up". The only recent ones that can come close, IMO, are the Hobbit scores.

The recent MV/RC scores you mentioned are solid, but they're nowhere near Twister. With Twister, there's just more meat to the bones. The music fills you up. It's very hard to explain with words. And it's something that rarely happens nowadays, at least from my perspective. Most similar modern scores just feel......emptier. And yes, I talk mainly about mainstream big Hollywood scores. I think Zimmer's Inception was the point where things kinda changed. Sound design, crazy electronics and VROOOOOOOM, BROOOOOOOM play too much of a part nowadays. You rarely get something truly melodic. A real theme. Jablosnky gets really close, Powell gets really close, but still......a lot of it feels too artificial.

Yes, I get it - things change and we can't be stuck with the 90's scores forever, but I don't think things got better with film music. It's really sad actually - Horner (one of the great melodic composers) left us way too soon, Mancina is pretty much gone from mainstream Hollywood, Rabin rarely scores......It's like most of the great "melodic composers" are gone. It's really sad.

Yes!!! :D

One of my holy grails, I'm especially looking forward to the orchestral lead-in for Humans Being.


Angelos2017-01-17 20:22:27
Finally, LaLaLand has done it! Many kudos to them!!!! One my holy grails as well. I've been waiting for this for ages!
Take my money LaLaLand Records! Just take it!


Kusi2017-01-17 21:06:44
There's a sample of this cue on their site :)


mpolonest1232017-01-17 23:54:49
And it sounds great! It also seems like the original end titles are included as well.

One interesting thing, the mix sounds a bit different in the samples. The percussion and brass are both more pronounced I think.
