<br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!
LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>
Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.<br>2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds<br>3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.<br>4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.<br><br>How did Hans fail here?<br><br>1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.<br><br>2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.<br><br>3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works<br><br>4. Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure.

Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure. <br><br><br>Dunkirk is a sound experiment and not a score. It is rather sad to see a fine composer like Benjamin Wallfisch deal with this nationalistic nonsense.It would be very interesting to get a better sense of what exactly Zanelli's role in the franchise is. He is a very capable composer but his work on 5 was utter scheisse. But that may just be what the franchise calls for. How does the supposedly precarious Hans put his name on all this shit.I would not be surprised if this was done by Balfe finally trying out his real compositional skills outside of him just acting as Hans' copy assistant. Everything that Balfe has done on his own to date is abysmal (okay The Lego Batman movie had some flair but that was probably done by the next generation of assistants). <br><br>Please go back to Ironclad and listen to Balfe before he was HBalfe, to hear his skills. Not very good, right? The man is an arranger not a composer.<br><br>This score will be utterly crap or it will sound like Tron and Transformers. <br><br>Shame as Del Toro and Steven Knight work with real composers like Max Richter who would have excelled here.Instead of concerning ourselves with Sia, we have to be worried about Djawadi. The man has a knick for a simple tv tune. But anything outside of that sounds like a youtube fanvideo. The incidental score for Game of Thrones, especially the wall scenes, is terrible and amateurish. <br><br>All I can think is that the producers must have been pressed with time and had to go with the casio synth nonsense Djawadi presented them with. It is the worst example of scoring for a major franchise. <br><br>Again, Dwajadi does well with his choral bits but he is not a composer, more a theme tune man. Who Wants to be a Millionare would serve him better than a complex franchise. <br><br>Simultaneously, the Paint it Black material from Westworld is outstanding. But was this done by Djawadi or a much more talented orchestrator - can we look into this as it sounds nothing like his work

According to IMDB, Henry Jackman is doing Mission Impossible - Fallout. Not sure how accurate this can be because I've seen IMDB errors before... anyone else have better info?


George2018-02-08 15:22:06
Wikipedia also has Jackman doing Fallout. Which I'm actually excited for, if its true! I'm particularly a big fan of Jackman


Macejko2018-02-08 15:42:20
So I guess the franchise will never have a composer worth a damn.


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-08 16:06:02
Except you know Elfman, Zimmer and Giacchino.


Macejko2018-02-08 16:20:50
Right, I completely forgot about Hans.


Olive2018-02-08 16:58:44
Elfman, Giacchino and KRAEMER also are fine composers!

A little happy for Jackman! I wait that he make a good job!


Olive2018-02-08 17:04:06
Fake news. Now it is "Joe Kraemer" again. Trolls is everyplace.

Finally got around to watch this - heavily underappreciated- sequel, and listening to its fantastic score I'm almost positive Jackman had nothing to do with it and it was all Matt Margeson's work.

I liked his Jumanji, to be honest, but it "only" felt like Jackman slowly coming to his senses after years of lackluster input (Kong, Civil War, Jack Reacher etc.) - it was by no means a strong, thematic, action packed, masterfully orchestrated score as Kingsman 2 (or the first one, for that matter) was. This alone tells me volumes about the composer-listing shennanigans of this soundtrack. If this isn't Margeson through and through, I will eat my hat and chug it down with whiskey.


George2018-01-23 02:26:54
You may be right, but I actually think Jackman did a pretty good job with his scores this year. I enjoyed Jumanji, and i may be in the minority here but i actually really enjoyed Kong as well. I tend to think he and Margeson just have a great collaborating chemistry because those Kingsman scores are two of the best scores either one of them has done.

Andreas reply Replies: 1 || 2018-01-06 21:04:11
Is the music from the scene where Harry remembers who he was before on the soundtrack? Can’t find it.


NotSoAnonymous2018-01-07 00:54:24
That track is called "Rage and Serenity" and is actually on the X-Men: First Class album.

Does anyone know a chronological order or is this chronological??


FunnyML2017-12-02 05:15:39
Just put "02. Memories Of Harry" between "04. Poppy" and "05. Incomig Missiles" and it should be chronological.

"12. Whiskey's Demons" and "25. Kingsman Hoedown" seem to be unused though.

"Mutant and Proud" (from X-Men First Class) was used on the scene when Harry's gets back his memories. Am i right?


Lejti2017-09-24 07:53:07
My fault, it was "Rage and Serenity"


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-26 12:21:27
Yeah, I noticed that! It was either that cue exactly dropped in, or a temp version of it that is so close as to be practically indistinguishable from the original. Of course, same director, same composer, same studio...guess there are no rights/plagiarism issues there!

HYBRID, do you know IF or WHEN this album will be released on Spotify or Google Play Music? So far, I can only find it on iTunes.

Is it just me or is Poppy’s theme the same thing as Jack and Jill’s theme from puss n boots?


Anonymous2017-09-23 17:30:12
Probably. The first Kingsman sounds just like Winter Soldier.


Medigo2017-09-24 00:56:01
Winter Soldier sounds almost nothing like Kingsman
Civil war maybe


JBSO992017-09-24 22:39:10
The first Kingsman is by far superior than Civil War and it has nothing similiar to The Winter Soldier.

Civil War for me was quite bland and generic but the first Kingsman has some very good themes and great strong action cues.

On the other hand I really liked The Winter Soldier, but not as much as the Kingsman scores.

David reply Replies: 0 || 2017-09-24 00:10:05
Yes! "No Time for Emotion" and "Not In Vain" contain John Denver's "Country Roads"! No Time for Emotion is Mark Strong singing it like in the film!! I'm so happy they included this! :D

JBSO99 reply Replies: 0 || 2017-09-22 21:24:18
Just watched the movie and it was awesome, well not as great s the first one, but still very entertaining.

As for the score, by now I have just listened to it in the movie and there worked perfectly, I would say even better than in the first one, with some old themes and some very good new themes, specially I love the Poppy theme.

Now I will listen to the album to see what tracks are we missing but it looks like a really complete pack.

Waymann reply Replies: 1 || 2017-09-22 10:34:40
Great fun score. It has everything I expected. Although that country vibe in some tracks is nice not really my cup of tea.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-22 12:37:36
I guess that's for the Statesmen. Would have preferred an all-out Western sound for them to contrast with the Bond-type music for the Kingsmen...that would have been fun!

Waymann reply Replies: 4 || 2017-09-21 16:11:26
The score has 25 tracks and is about 1 hour and 16 minutes long. Samples sound awesome. Great action score with new theme's and variations of the old ones. Looking forward to hearing it in full.


JBSO992017-09-21 16:41:29
Where can I listen to those samples? I would love to hear some bits of the score before watching the movie.


Iamtommie2017-09-21 17:15:33
Where did you get this information and samples?


Waymann2017-09-21 20:14:22
iTunes SriLanka is the first itunes store to get the new releases online on friday. But by now you can also go to iTunes New Zeland or something and checkout the album and it’s samples.

No the CD comes out on October 20th, not september.

Really looking forward to this one. The soundtrack for the first film was one of my favorites of 2015. Also a new Thomas Newman score that day. I'm a happy man.
