Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>
Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_O
How dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :PWhat site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.
Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!

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

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

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 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.

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

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 .

I see, thank you for answer!
