Olive - it totally is unwarranted. <br><br>Your points are very un-educated .<br><br>Ask yourself this .... why has Balfe worked on every Transformere film ?The Majority of Zimmerís films in the last 15 years and according to ASCAP been an equal composer .Captain Philips for Jackman.Ironman for Ramin .....<br><br><br>Okay, I'll wait for the more detailed credits in the release.Yeah, Mazzaro and AK would be more interesting choices, even Balfe.<br><br>Maybe Zimmer has more confidence in Wallfisch? He delivered Verbinsky's "Cure" gratuitously for him and then tied him up on two of his major projects last year.<br><br>When I refer to security, I talk about the "assurance of delivering a good job".Olive - wrong.Balfe has said it is used in the film on Twitter.Geostorm is fun, with a nostalgic nods to the old MV scores.<br><br>And much better than 12 Strong
I know this story... It would be good if JP were like HZ in his public promises. xD<br><br>Well, the fact that Djawadi was not mentioned in the credits confirms that Balfe had not used the theme written by him, right?About the score: Dunkirk's unimaginative copy (regardless of who is the lead author of the Nolan movie score).<br><br>Lego, really, was one of the best scores for animation last year. Churchill is a good accompaniment to the film and Genius is a fun listening with many moments that catch the ear.<br><br>Unfortunately, 12 strong and Geostorm were disappointing, but it is normal for any composer's career to have ups and downs, especially when working with so many numbers in a single year.<br><br>I agree with Mike that there is a very clear difference from when Hans is on a project and when one of his assistants goes to work alone. Pirates, WW and even Tarzan are there as more recent examples, all excellent scores, but you know there's something missing there.<br><br>On the problem with "hate" for Balfe, it is not unwarranted. It is a reaction to the exaggerated attention he has received over the past year, which overlaps with that received by other composers who work with universes with fan platforms far superior to those in which Balfe works. Jablonsky has the billion dollar franchise of the Transformers, Djawadi GoT and Henry Jackman has worked with the Marvel movies. Even Powell's entrance to SW might have made some noise, but nothing. None of these projects received such warm reception from the members of this site as Balfe's latest projects (with the exception of HZ, of course). That bothers me a little.<br><br>Curious to know what he will do with "Pacific Rim".<br><br>A lot of the time when a score's final action/battle sequence is split up among several tracks I edit them together into one track myself in Audacity. The most recent example was Black Panther with "The Great Mound Battle/Glory to Bast/The Jabari, Pt II". And my edit of the final battle music from King Arthur runs nearly 15 minutes. Maybe something similar will be possible for the last few tracks of this score.yeah that's just one though. We'll see!! no info on a release date, on lornes twitter it says it's coming out very soon.
"Shatterdome Attacked", at least we'll get one 7-minute action cue...<br><br>Also. TRACKLIST YOU GET DID WHERE???An agent isn't the problem. Powell is choosing to work less, and only on certain types of movies.Damn the tracks are really short, i was hoping for some long epic music. Hopefully he'll deliver on the epic (I'm sure he will)Giacchino has some points about Powell because of the variety of his work. The man works on several beloved franchises through the pubic and every year makes some score for Pixar. From Powell, so far we've only had Bourne and the animated films from Dreamworks and Blue Sky. That's the only problem with him. The lack of a good agent to get projects beyond the territory conquered by him in the mid-00's.where got you did tracklist have been?
Where did you get the tracklist ???????Where you get the tracklist?<br><br>;)Ian<br>I would rather choose Giacchino over Powell any day.<br>Don't get me wrong, Powell is great but always found Giacchino's Scores much more memorable.<br>The only score made by Powell that i keep listening is Bourne's Supremacy.Ian<br>I would rather choose Giacchino over Powell any day.<br>Don't get me wrong, Powell is great but always found Giacchino's Scores much more memorable.<br>The only score made by Powell that i keep listening is Bourne's Supremacy.And @Ian, re: talent of assistants, to add to your point... Kick It was, according to Hybrid, Hansí theme turned into a suite by Balfe...so even there, with his interesting stuff, the nucleus of it is still Zimmer. If youíre talking about Training from Begins for Djawadi, ditto there. Hans said that was the first theme he (Hans) wrote for the movie. So in both cases, these guys kinda sound best when expanding on Hansí ideas.

If the album is as good as the EP I can not wait . Balfe's music has been faultess this year . Lego Batman was fantastic as well Churchill but this is sounding very interesting


AntoMia2017-06-20 22:52:25
This has to be the best music for a tv show in a long time . Ron Howard should work with balfe more


PMorris2017-06-21 08:58:46
Watched the last episode last night and can't wait for the soundtrack . The music. Was great and cool sounding also


Tomo2017-06-21 09:39:38
Love this score . 10/10

Just heard everything is connected and had to buy the EP . Can't wait for the album. Really great music

I'm not normally a fan of Tv scores but this is fantastic . It beats anything recently even for films!!!!!!! Love this score


Mikel2017-06-22 11:34:22
Great music


Balfe 2018-02-23 14:55:38
AntoMia - or Balfe's assistant - stop making silly comments. If this is the best music to a TV show in ages, you haven't watched any tv shows

Any news yet of a release date ? Loved the EP and Lorne music's was fantastic in the show . Looking forward to it

It says at filmmusicreporter.com that Milan will release the full score album in the next few weeks.

However it is not quite clear whether it will be a CD or download only.


Response Man2017-05-30 11:31:51
Great! I was really considering whether or not to buy this EP, but now that a full release is going to come out, I'll wait until then. Really enjoying this sound, from what we've been able to listen to so far.


Dieter 2017-05-30 16:28:02
The album has a different listing than the EP. I bought the EP and really like it


Akios2017-05-31 00:11:16
Really enjoying the show and he EP was wonderful music . Lorne's music is amazing and not what I would expect .


JBSO992017-06-03 11:27:20
I have read they have planned to releasing the score in CD the 28th of July. Can someone confirm this? I cannot wait for it!

Gustavo2017-05-24 02:06:03
It seems to be a feature film I think but why not work with Zimmer again ?


Andreas2017-05-24 02:16:38
I loved Chappie . Why didn't he worked with the other composers from the film ?

Lorne is going to score CARS 3! :O :O

I don't know where you got that from but on June 6 a score by Randy Newman is released.


...2017-05-20 12:03:15
Well IMDb says, Randy is listed just as "original score composed by" and then there is Music by Lorne...


Macejko2017-05-20 14:00:24
That makes precisely zero sense.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-20 14:38:50
Wrong info !

Goto watch the series this weekend and it's really great and Balfe's score is some of the best and interesting TV music in a long time. Beautiful and emotional

MB reply Replies: 9 || 2017-05-07 17:34:33
Guys, whats wrong with you? "Time and space" is an usual track, nothing special or extraordinary. "masterpiece" ??? WTF? It seems to me like you never hear the any music. NEVER. But in general score is good. 4 of 5 IMHO. Don't overestimate that music )))


AndrewL2017-05-07 17:56:22
Seems like MB's taste in music , is as bad as his English ! Excellent score , I think , and looking forward to the full album release .


Ando2017-05-07 17:56:51
Agree! Great score .


Mike2017-05-07 18:13:56
The music is an interesting blend of electronic and orchestra . A bit Frost Nixon?


MB2017-05-07 18:17:56
That score is very good, but track Time and space is nothing special. Thats all. (You don't know anything about my taste in music and me)).


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-07 19:38:33
No need to sling insults when MB is just being reasonable (you're going to jump down his throat for giving it a 4 out of 5?). I too think the lavish praise being slung at this one is pretty overblown, especially considering all we've heard of it so far is a small highlights reel.


MB2017-05-07 20:34:29
Thanks, Edmund) I love this site, but sometimes people in there are very assault.


Everan2017-05-08 03:47:38
If you think people can get agressive here, you haven't gone to Film Music Reporter.
Yeah, the track's fine, sounds nice, nothing too exciting but nice. If people love it, cool but if someone else doesn't, then cool too.


Michael 2017-05-08 07:36:53
Forbidden Love is the best track I think and it's generally a great soundtrack so far. Very different sounding and not RCP usual .


Andreas2017-05-13 18:18:54
Another new clip of the soundtrack got release today. The music gets better

Time and Space is a masterpiece haven't seen the show yet though but digging the mixture of synths and the orchestra


michaelfilm792017-05-07 11:20:45
Agreed it's a great soundtrack . Interesting idea releasing the EP. Hybrid - do you know when the album is released and also what else he is working on ?


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-07 12:07:34
The score will come out when Lorne will be done. He's still scoring the show ! A couple of episodes left for him to score.

He's also starting working on Season 2 of The Crown with RGW, on a real "composer" role this time, on Season 1 he just helped out.

It really is great and hints of Frost Nixon . Apparently there will be a proper score release at the end of the series and this is just an EP

I have a question and I would love if somebody can answer it - What such an assistant of composer is doing? Is he just making coffee or actually making music? I am really curious, I know that Lorne was assistant too!


Michael2017-04-25 00:03:49
I asked this before to lorne on Facebook . He said the roles can mean different things . Some composers assistants help with running the office . Some deal with making sure the music works to the latest cut of film . Some arrange
And orchestrate also . Means varied tasks .


...2017-04-25 13:32:44
I see, thank you for answer!
