I'll try to explain myself more with the scores I wasn't a big fan of. I really like a lot of Gears of War 3. It has a lot of faster paced, melodic action cues, and the cues from Gears of War 2 are improved. Its main problem is it's not very memorable, which Jablonsky is usually able to produce. <br><br>Ender's Game I found to be a bit of a slog. There was a lot of ambient/sound design cues which I found incredibly dull. However, it's possible I was expecting too much, or maybe I was too harsh on it. I'll try to have another listen to that one. <br><br>Gangster Squad was one where I just looked at the comments to see what people thought about it, and the consensus was "it copied every recent Hollywood score", so I just skipped that one. <br><br>TF3 had a lot of good thematic material, and the finale's action music was a lot of fun, but it lacks the memorability and excitement of the first 2, or the subtlety of 5, making it fall in the middle for me. Plus the Inception sound was pretty annoying. <br><br>Gears of War 2 falls into mediocre for me. The main theme is solid, but the action is repetitive and doesn't have much variation. Plus it also wasn't very memorable. It's basically a worse version of Gears 3 to me. <br><br>Transformers 1 and 2 don't really count to me because those were more an RCP effort than a Jablonsky one. Just to clarify, I don't hate that Jablonsky went down this route. I first learned of his existence through the Transformers scores for god's sake. It's just that listening to Steamboy, it makes me sad there wasn't more of this side of Jablonsky. Oh, and honorable mention to TMNT: Out of the Shadows, that was a great superhero score!Gangster Squad was Ok, but i prefer Ender's Game, actually the sound design in that i find it certain interesting.<br><br>In Battleship, yeah, it's nothing original, but for me, is a guilty pleasure, i love the percussion (i'm a big fan of the taiko sound)<br><br>Enderís Game isnít bad at all, there are some cool power anthems and orchestral moments in it. As for Battleship, while I find most of it generic, I genuinely do like the alien ďMRIĒ sound design he incorporated.<br><br>And one of Jablonskyís most underrated scores imo is Gangster Squad. If you want a fun Jablonsky score that strays away (mostly) from the Zimmer sound thatís it. Any score using Antz as a temp track is fine by me!I will disagree with TF3, Ender's Game, Gears of War 2 and 3, there are good scores, altough i'm a massive fan of that guilty pleasure is Battleship ;D<br><br>And A Nightmare on Elm Street was cool.John Powell to receive Henry Mancini Award. <br><br>Look it up at filmmusicreporter.<br><br>Congrats John
Edmund's right. It's really just sad that Jablonsky could have been one of the greatest composers ever, one with more notoriety and respect from the music community, but instead settled for being... a decent composer.<br><br>TF5 was a step in the right direction, D-War was a great monster movie score, Your Highness came close to Steamboy levels, and IDEA felt like Jablonsky's symphony in a lot of ways. But on the other end you have Ender's Game, Transformers 3 and 4, Battleship, Gears of War 2, Gears of War: Judgement, and a few others that range from ok, to flat out awful. Occasionally though you get some decent ones like Gears of War 3, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.<br><br>My point is, we get a composer overridden with bland projects, and musically inept directors, when he had the potential for being Oscar level.This just occurred to me. 1:44-2:10ish in Remember Who You Are kind of sounds like part of Mozartís Ave Verum Corpus...and we know Hans is a fan of that piece...@mpolonest: I'm the opposite side: BvS grown each time i listened.<br><br>Not the same for MoS ;D@DS<br><br>You are absolutely right, and it was something that I did think about while I was writing the post, I just never clarified it. <br><br>But that also has the opposite effect as well. I've had plenty of scores/songs which originally I liked that I gradually grew to dislike or simply lose interest. One of the most recent ones is BvS, which I enjoyed when it came out but looking back is probably one of my least favorite Zimmer scores.@Edmund @Ds totally agree! This days the only composer that convince me is Steven Price.
Is there a Balfe score that is not very temped? Every single Balfe score I listened to is basically giving an old score a fresh set of paint.mpolonest123: it's difficult to compare scores that are 10 years old and that you had plenty of time to digest, with brand new scores you've only heard a couple of times.<br><br>You said it yourself, when Clash of the Titans came out you thought it was generic and forgettable. It's only later that you noticed all these themes and all the work Djawadi put into it.<br><br>And actually it works like that with any new album released by any major artist. Fans are always like "it sucks, I prefer their previous albums". And yet 5 years later they love all these songs and know them by heart. :-pEdmund: I see your point, and if everyone could become 100% objective it would be actually true. But in practice, our personal tastes play a heavy role in deciding whether a score is interesting or fun or creative or intelligent or enjoyable. Some people like very classical, orchestral music more than anything else; even if JXL was creating the craziest soundtrack ever, his sound palette and synthetic approach alone would be enough to make these people dislike the score and say it's rubbish. The level of detail he put in Tomb Raider is astonishing, but sadly it'll only be noticed by people who are not upset by this style of brutal and synthetic environment. Of course it also works the other way, dry orchestral scores like Giacchino frequently writes do nothing to me, I don't particularly like this kind of sound, so I never spent a lot of time listening to them. As a consequence, I never was able to dissect them to discover all their (I guess) richness, subtleties, etc. So from my point of view, almost all Giacchino scores sound the same way and are not interesting, and I don't understand how and why he keeps getting all those major assignments. That's to say, our personal preferences will always interfere with our judgment, even if we honestly try to be fair.I feel like I see/have this kind of conversation on film music boards all the time. The approach isn't the problem, it's the execution. For example, when Man of Steel came out:<br><br>me: "I'm a bit disappointed by Man of Steel, it has its moments but I don't think it's a very good score overall"<br>fanboys: "JOHN WILLIAMS WAS YESTERDAY, ZIMMER IS TODAY, THIS IS A DIFFERENT SUPERMAN BLAH BLAH BLAH GET OVER IT"<br>me: "...did I mention Williams?"<br><br>or else Mad Max: Fury Road<br><br>me: "Mad Max is a decent score but I feel like the film deserved much more"<br>fanboys: "THERE'S LITERALLY A DUDE ON A DRUM CAR WITH A FLAMETHROWER GUITAR WHAT DID YOU EXPECT"<br>me: "...a composer who does more interesting things with those drums and that guitar?"<br><br>All over the place. It was really aggravating. This is a similar situation A talented film composer can write interesting, engaging music in all sorts of styles, for all sorts of films and under all sorts of directorial conditions. My issue with Tomb Raider isn't that it's not a traditional Jerry Goldsmith adventure score. I never expected that from this film, and certainly not from this composer. It's just not a very interesting or intelligent or enjoyable version of what it's trying to be, and that's the bottom line.@mrzimmerfan <br><br>I completely agree with you. Tomb Raider definitely didnít need a traditional score at all. And I love all the scores youíve mentioned. I even donít have a problem with the approach he took.<br><br>But I just donít like the score as is. We just have to agree to disagree, no harm done. :-)
I don't think he means that, just that it would have been interesting if Jablonsky had gone more into animated movies like Powell did, rather than mostly Michael Bay. I think maybe we got a hint of what that could have been like with Your Highness a few years ago, a score I'll always defend, but yeah...the lack of follow-up to Steamboy is a great tragedy in Jablonsky's career.@mpolonest: I will enjoyed more Run All Night than Mad Max, hell, even The Dark Tower.<br><br>But with Tomb Raider, this movie is harsh, with a real character, and an adventure score a la Goldsmith or JNH, will not benefit anything about it. And in there, there is a lot of great sounds and ideas pop up in all the score.<br><br>And this is telling you a guy who LOVE The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, the entire Indiana Jones and Jumanji scores.@mpolonest: I will enjoyed more Run All Night than Mad Max, hell, even The Dark Tower.<br><br>But with Tomb Raider, this movie is harsh, with a real character, and an adventure score a la Goldsmith or JNH, will not benefit anything about it.

Now here's a Lorne Balfe score that I can get behind. Interesting aesthetic, fun electronics, grand orchestra cues, and interesting combinations of the two. Not sure if I'd say Oscar worthy, but definitely more unique to me than his other work.

I got a 15 second sample of Major Motoko.. epic electronic track that didn't get used in the final cut of the movie. Hopefully Lorne Balfe will release it on a GITS Friday in a week or two!

firasd2017-10-01 19:42:35
Cool... this stuff about drones is very interesting because there are no significant drones that I can remember in the movie. This is yet another reason we need a director's cut or deleted scenes...

After all that praise i was dissappointed about the music when i just recently watched the movie. Never really noticed the music, no theme... nothing. If someone compares that to Tron Legacy then the Tron score was way better than this (they seem to be similiar so i think its ok to use Tron for comparison). Is it praised because its unreleased ?

mpolonest123 2017-09-08 20:16:25
@fs I honestly feel the same. Outside of the shelling sequence and finale cues I honestly can't remember anything themewise. The electronic music is well done (especially in context) but just like the film it was pretty forgettable to me.

Marcus2017-09-08 21:42:30
Balfe's score was fantastic . Just because it didn't have big melodies all over it doesn't matter . The film was ok but Balfe's score was unique.

James2017-09-08 22:17:57
Effective in the context and out &#242; f it, but not unique.

firasd2017-09-09 00:07:34
There are definitely themes--or at least one theme, played throughout the score with different tempos and instruments.

fs2017-09-09 18:12:03
It is not bad but just nothing special or fantastic. After reading many comments here (Balfes best work etc) i really cared for the music while watching it. But i dont see/hear any "idea" behind that score. It is solid of course and supports the movie. It is the same like Balfes Terminator score, it works but nothing to rememeber outside from the movie.

See I knew you'd know! :P

firasd2017-08-22 02:33:50
I suspect that the music from the Clint Mansell sessions that ended up getting used in the soundtrack is too intertwined with the final score to separate the cues between the two composers' teams. Check out "The Leap" from Kevin Kiner (it's on his website and also on Youtube), a version of that is in the final score.

In other words, I don't think there are easily separable "Clint Mansell cues" and "Lorne Balfe cues". There is just one final score.

firasd2017-08-22 02:45:43
Also (to answer the question at the start of this thread) the cover art uses a portion of an unofficial poster by Ruiz Burgos

Although, yes, no one found the cure to cancer here, it's film music, it's not a big deal "in this world", people get fired all the time, I will not act like it's a matter of life & death and cry for it. "lol" ;)

Right answer Hybrid!!

James2017-08-07 00:21:07
Do you guys get any help from Zimmer's company?

Hybrid Soldier2017-08-07 00:29:50

It's been there for 16 years (I've been there for 9), but nope.

James2017-08-07 01:24:03
I've never imagined. I always thought he was treated as the official website (even though it was a result of the fans' effort).

ATonas2017-08-07 05:47:52
Apparently Clint does not want the score released . Even though it was a total re write , Balfe still used Mancells main theme. This is why he doesnt want it released . Good on Balfe for released the score . Great job

MThomson 2017-08-07 06:13:18
Has there ever been such a demand for a soundtrack that has. It been released ?
The score was better than the film . Is Balfe involved with Bladerunner . If so then it would be great if it sounded like Ghost in the Shell.

Gary2017-08-07 08:24:38
There are over 3000 people wanting a release . That is impressive

Olive2017-08-07 15:13:17
Was it a total rewrite?

Hybrid Soldier2017-08-07 17:31:29
James, it sort of is.

I mean Hans trusts us so we sort of have carte blanche (and if Remote isn't happy with something, they just tell me), but technically they don't own nor participate in it and I could ignore whatever they would want me to remove (which of course I don't, it's in the interest of... nobody) !

Evenstar2017-08-07 22:19:16
@ATonas How do you know this? Was there an interview you can refeer to?

noregaaaa2017-08-07 23:56:38
It's up to Clint and I don't think he's inclined to release his score at present. Maybe in time when the dust has settled. It's a great shame I know because it's a wonder score.

Micheal2017-08-08 15:46:45
Why is it up to Clint ? From all accounts Balfe replaced nearly the whole score ?

UKfimmguy2017-08-08 16:30:03
Any idea if we will get better quality links that the YouTube ones ?

noregaaaa2017-08-08 23:25:42
@Michael All score? We don't know this. Known, Mansell is nervous because him score replaced from studio/director.

Hybrid Soldier2017-08-09 00:17:32
Here's what the cuesheet says (doesn't mean it's 100% true lol) :


EC 5 - 1M08 CM


EC 2 - 1M06 LB





James2017-08-09 00:21:12

Yes, I understand. But it would not be a bad attitude on their part to provide full support for the site.



Is not said in any interview. It's just an assumption of this. He made no mention of the score in all his interviews and even his Twitter account. He ignores the existence of the score.

James2017-08-09 00:23:09
Thanks for cuesheet

noregaaaa2017-08-09 01:21:03
@Hybrid Soldier Thanks for track list.

firasd2017-08-09 20:39:44
Guys I would ask that nobody make confident proclamations about what Clint Mansell is thinking if you don't have genuine information. As the person who started the petition the only information I can confirm is that there are contractual issues related to the fact that both composers were involved. But I got this confirmed info only a couple days ago after 4 months of all of us trying to figure out what's going on. I'm not against speculation but let's not pass off speculation as authoritative statements. Thanks!

mpolonest123 2017-08-10 01:29:13
@Hybrid I'm sure most of the RCP composers know about the "music leaks" (how else would they get out there) but I'm actually pretty curious; Does HZ himself know about these recording sessions popping up? Does he even care? Lol

Evenstar2017-08-12 15:38:00
Clint seems to be a crybaby...

noregaaaa2017-08-14 11:09:31
@Evenstar Maybe (:

Lorenzo2017-08-14 22:55:53
Most amazing soundtrack in a long time and better than the film.

badbu2017-08-15 07:53:47

Really loving Balfe releasing the score every week . So crazy they will not release it because it is one of the best soundtracks this year . A classical Bladerunner . Well done

Finally this amazing score will get released!
Thanks to Lorne Balfe for making this possible.

Lynk2017-08-08 06:06:23
One can only hope they are doing it properly. I am concerned that given Mansell's likely discontent, as described by a few posters in this thread, there may be some incentives to cut each and every references of his tunes from the prospective album. That won't be nice.

MrZimmerFan2017-08-08 13:45:20
More than a confirmation is more like a wish

Mike782017-08-08 15:43:36
Balfe's post on YouTube sound really cool and he said on twitter every Friday he is uploading tracks

Ahmad reply Replies: 9 || 2017-08-05 02:52:21
Lorne posted two tracks on Youtube.

Andrew2017-08-05 04:42:16
Finally !!! I've been waiting for this for ages .

JBSO992017-08-05 11:21:54
I hope this means that an official album release is coming.
There is still hope!

...2017-08-05 12:30:01
I doubt... He is just sharing some of his music, that doesnīt mean, that they will release it, even if we all would love that :/

meta2017-08-05 13:01:36
if you look on youtube someone has already pretty much ripped the score from the film...

Andres2017-08-05 19:49:21
It seems Balfe is releasing the soundtrack on YouTube . At least then we get to listen to

James2017-08-05 22:12:05
It's sad. His work deserves better treatment. Even a digital release.
Not just for him, but for Mansell too.

Steve2017-08-05 23:08:23
"OST teaser" sounds to me like it's going to be released, and this is just a teaser...

Mike782017-08-06 05:23:02
This is great Balfe is releasing the music because it has been too long waiting for this . Is it true Balfe is score producer for Blade Runner ? If so it will be hard to beat the Ghost score !

James2017-08-06 16:53:48
Hans did the Batman and Balfe the now will do the Robin.
