Its Imagine the Fire insertThe Japanese version can be ordered here: http: //www.cdjapan.co.jp/ product/WPCR-18185<br><br>The "Swan Song" is also included on the CD. So it has 3 additional tracks.Theres quite a bit of good unreleased stuff from this score. Stuff like the cue that plays during Alita's first game of motorball with the other kids, the bar fight music, the unused string rendition of Alita's theme and the end titles arrangement of Motorball/Swan Song.Does anyone have the "Motorball" cue from end credits? It sounds like the beginning of the "Motorball" track but it's different than on the OST. It plays directly after the Swan Song track...<br><br>Why is it left off the CD?Huh... Do people at RCP ask H-Z.com to use the official, less accurate credits in some cases? I seem to recall some credit fiasco on POTC4.
So what happened to the credits here? It used to be a mixture of solo Atli cues with Atli/Dave Fleming, and now all three guys are credited for every track even though Tillman is only listed as a musician? Is this like with Armageddon, where the "official" credits aren't as accurate as the older ones were? :pMost of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.
I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.
Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.

Since JXL is a hot topic now, does anyone know what the chronological order for this score is?

Junk Swatch! reply Replies: 3 || 2018-02-26 15:21:25
Guys, I apologise for being so crap. I wanted to be Swatch! but couldn't do it. My samples are not good and Grolsch is powerful.

When I rock, it tends to be in a disco with guys my age. We rock a lot and my music heats the beats. Schwag! HZ made me make a theme for Dark Tower. I wanted to do a GROOVE, TIME. Didn't work.

So, I looked at this guy Goldman, Goldsmith or some old guy. He is my age but as I wear a hat I am cooler than him.

He does cool themes. So I thought he is cool. But then I heard about this crazy Scottish guy Doyle, so I based my theme on his work!

Anyways, I party. Man, you should see my abs!

I see someone bored!


JBSO992018-02-26 18:01:50
Why he does not give up? He needs to enter in every page in the site and shit on every composer around here.

It looks like someone need to get a life...

The main theme (Roland of Eld) is awesome, yet the rest is painfully unremarkable.

Just took a listen to this and am so impressed. There are many JXL mannerisms in the string writing and electronics, but outside of those I don't think I've heard him write in this huge fantasy style before. "The Dark Tower" and "Roland of Eld" make me wish he was still on board for Justice League.
And huge praise to whoever did the mixing on this one!


JBSO992017-07-28 19:38:16
I have listened to those two tracks and they sounded amazing.
I wish Junkie stayed in Justice League for hearing more of him in this style.
I still have to listen to this full score but for now I like it a lot.


mpolonest123 2017-07-28 21:39:36
The album definitely could use some trimming, there are some filler tracks which kill the flow. Outside of that it's a pretty strong release...


JBSO992017-07-28 23:17:37
It looks like there are many short tracks that usually stop the flow of an album but it looks pretty cool.


mpolonest123 2017-07-29 15:58:11
The big problem with most of his album releases is that he tends to include some of the more atmospheric underscore which just doesn't make for a great listening experience. If you condense any JXL album down you can definitely get a better representation of his music.


Ahmad2017-07-29 17:05:24
Well, let me give you a very simple solution to that: make your own playlist or mixtape or whatever based on what you want to hear. I'd rather have as much music as possible and edit myself than have an incomplete release.

29 tracks!! Even if on an average each track is 2 min long it's almost an hour 20 mins. Well, I'm not the one to complain about more music. Bring it on. Hopefully something good.

There's the cover of the soundtrack is at Amazon already! Music by Tom Holkenborg.

So excited to hear this! I think Tom mentioned in an interview that it will definitely be different than his current style. Not sure what to expect but I'm hopeful that we will get a good cross between western and fantasy.


Waymann2017-07-11 08:30:22
As long as it doesn't sound like Mad Max, Deadpool or BvS, then i'm excited.
