The reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?
Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion king
Best film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>
Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far on top for me. It feels like the ultimate culmination of Jeremy Soule's work on the the series along with symphony-level quality for the town and exploration music.

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

Zack2014-09-30 10:37:59
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!

On the complete score perhaps, but that remains to be see.

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

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

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...)---
