Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

So Lorne's mp3 uploads. Would anyone class that as an 'official' release of the music from the movie?

Is Clint Mansell not credited for this score as well?


Knight2019-07-06 17:50:35
From what I can tell, Lorne replaced his work in the movie, which would explain why he said nothing about the film or score when the whole petition was happening.


Knight2019-07-06 17:55:52
Lorne did use some of his material though, the 2 note thing on strings in Confined is Mansell material.


Peter2019-07-07 02:33:52
Balfe released most of the score under his name. There seems to be only a couple of cues according to ASCAP that are not Balfe .


JA2019-11-14 01:44:28
I want to say that test screening version of Ghost in the Shell deleted one geisha character who was under orders of Cutter to follow the Major and in the original third act, she fought Aramaki when he stormed into Cutter's Holo room after killing his guards. Aramaki survives and the scene continues as shown. Because of the poor reception of what I call "The Philosophical Cut", the geisha character was removed and there were quick reshoots of all of the conversations between Cutter and Aramaki minus the geisha character involvement.

As a Zimmer fan, I'm somewhat disappointed that he hasn't done much this year. However, Balfe's latest works has made up for the lack of Zimmer, especially MI6. Now after just recently listening to Ghost in the Shell (which I realize is just amazing!), I've started to think that Balfe is an underrated composer. He's amazing at what he does and He's starting to create more unique scores. Hopefully MI6 will give him more recognition as a score composer.

I'm hearing a lot from the "Elysium" score from Ryan Amon in Ghost in the Shell...


Darth2018-07-25 11:47:00
yeah i would put 'Gravity', 'Oblivion' and even 'Ender's Game' in the pot of similarities


Sun2018-07-26 09:26:00
Do you have any more scores in mind, that sounds familiar like these ones? Love the style of these scores and would love to hear more of them :)


Edmund Meinerts2018-07-26 14:13:46
The ultimate one for me is Tron Legacy by Daft Punk, which is still in my top 5 of this decade and pretty much the perfect orchestra/electronic hybrid score IMO. It's a modern classic. I think a lot of the scores mentioned, especially Oblivion, directly trace their lineage to Tron Legacy.

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.

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.

Incorrect . Only a hand full of cues were Mansells . Check your facts ...... or ask Balfe himself ?

Oops that was me as Anonymous.

David2017-08-20 18:23:05
Woopsie :/

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
