Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

I yust realized that alan silvestri or zemeckis used the end of let my home be my gallows in beowulf. anybody knows what the fuck happened? because if you watch the end credits, there's absolutely nothing there about this. no special thanks to HZ. no let my home be my gallows is from hannibal. nothing...
also beowulf is WB and paramount, hannibal is universal...

Oh God, oh Hans, please, give us the reccording sessions ! Without Hopkins voice I beg you !
This score is one of the best of Hans by far, yet so underrated !

trent easton navarro2014-10-11 20:04:45
I hope La La Land or Intrada will release an expanded version of this one. And indeed without the voice-over. While I think it works somewhat on Dear Clarice it's annoying as hell on Let My Home Be My Gallows

Does anyone think we'll ever get a re-release without the god damned voice overs? It's a great score, and it does add some mood to it, but ugh, I wish it never happened.

Does anyone know whether the instrumental for "Dear Clarice" exists without Anthony's dialogue dubbed over it? Would love to track that down... may well just recreate it otherwise!

Nyct2014-05-01 23:21:16
On the complete score perhaps, but that remains to be see.

Marc2014-05-02 12:51:30
What's the source of track ''Lecter Snatched'' ?

Bondo2014-05-02 13:24:19
It's by Steve Jablonsky, available on one of his old promos... and also my favorite track in the entire film! Has a definite "The Fan" vibe to it

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-02 13:33:48
Yes it's a BIG Fan ripoff actually... lol

scratch2014-05-02 17:28:36
I take it there is no release of the complete score anywhere? Incidentally, did any of you see Anthony's Waltz being premiered in 2011? Lovely piece...

A great score, a different horror style, than hides the evil behind beutiful and elegant melodies, that way is more sinister without stop to be wonderful. The best way to define Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Hans Zimmer and their pleople did it, a score may make you feel terrified and marveled in same time

no, it a little bit difficult to say since they use the same track several times

Uga reply Replies: 9 || 2011-05-31 11:09:33
I'd love to see a complete score for this. Pazzi theme is lovely.
Everyone seems hopeful for another recording sessions leak of some other film. I of course just want to see Hannibal and Inception, but alas I'm just another beggar alone in his quest for these holy grails.

Takehiro2011-07-27 03:35:09
You're not alone bud, I want this too :)

From all the "expandeds" out there, which is best in terms of content?

uga2011-07-27 06:40:21
I would use the ost and the bonus tracks from magic music box and klaus badelt (in terms of sfx free).

Kusi2011-07-27 11:26:53
Magic Box Music did compose music for Hannibal? I don't see any tracks from them on their site..

Dawn2011-07-27 11:30:39
I don't think magicbox music ever composed cues for Hannibal...

Klaus Badelt cues are all heard in the official soundtrack CD (fully developped).

But Geoff Zanelli's website contains at least 2 or 3 unreleased cues, and there's a Steve Jablonsky promo with one unreleased cue.

Anonymous2011-07-27 22:19:50
Whats the name of the SJ promo??

uga2011-07-27 22:30:58
I'm sorry, I didn't mean magic music box, I meant geoff zanelli's website. my mistake

Dakota2011-07-27 22:33:26
I don't think it's a Jablonsky promo. If it is what I'm thinking of, then it's the 2-disc expanded score. It's a 9 minute piece called "Adagio"

Dawn2011-07-28 10:26:59
There are no "2CD expanded promo" for Hannibal. I mean, of course, there are a lot of fanmade "promos" around, but they are... fanmade.

I know both movie and score by heart, and I can confirm that all those "expanded editions" are fake. They combine music from the OST with another source that has nothing to do with Hannibal. Many years ago, some guys claimed to have an expanded score with some "Steve Jablonsky's rejected/alternate music" but the cues had nothing to do with the movie, and furthermore, they even had nothing to do with Jablonsky...

Dakota, getting unreleased music is always fun, but I think you should at least verify the new music is actually in the movie (or composed for it)... I don't see the point in collecting extended scores if you don't even know what's on them. Hannibal is all about those impatient guys that are ready to put pointless things on a CD in order to claim "I have more music". Adagio has nothing to do with the film score, nothing to do with SJ, nothing to do with any part of Zimmer's working process. It's like adding some Winnie the Pooh music in the middle of Steamboy and claiming it's expanded ! The SJ cue I was refering to, originally, is named "Lecter Kidnapped".

Trust me, film music promos from Geoff Zanelli, Steve Jablonsky and Klaus Badelt are the only sources that contain REAL HANNIBAL UNRELEASED MUSIC. Although all the music from Badelt is already featured on the OST.

Anonymous, minimum service would be at least to pick a name before asking questions here. About the promo, it was called SJ Film Music...

Dakota2011-07-29 03:21:13
Dawn, I never said I even have that. I've never seen Hannibal, I don't have the soundtrack, and therefore I have no idea what music is on it, or what it even sounds like. This cue you mentioned I thought might have possibly been that 9 minute track. I was just trying to help. Scores I do collect I have usually seen the film to, therefore knowing what music belongs on it or not.

It could be interesting... ---*could* because "Bring Him Home", "Eating the Nurse" or "The Abducting" were already released on various composers promos (Geoff Zanelli, Steve Jablonsky...)---
