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 ďmapped outĒ 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 itís a technically impressive score, I really canít think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a filmís 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 ó 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.

Hmm... Rupert Gregson-Williams and Lorne Bale are not longer scoring the series. Marthin Phipps is taking over. Will it take a complete new direction in style? I hope not. The score was one of the reasons I watched the show.


Peter2018-10-25 23:03:31
The only reason the show is a success is because of the music. Itís a tv show like sounds like a movie .season 2 was the best.who ever is doing it will have to just copy the last season probably

Ian reply Replies: 0 || 2018-03-18 21:02:48
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!

Andreas reply Replies: 2 || 2018-01-19 11:11:02
New score by Rupert Gregson-Williams from the series The Alienist will be release next week.


Balfe2018-02-23 15:05:01
How much excitement here is there for this? These two composers must have hit out of the trash bin this time.


Stephan 2018-02-23 16:37:01
Rupert Is an asking composer as well as Lorne. This guy must be the Stop RCP ring leader

superultramegaa reply Replies: 19 || 2017-12-10 14:12:22
I'm going to try and add a little criticism to this one. I personally don't really see what's so great about this. The first track, and I was already thinking "Oh, it's the Bumblebee theme again. Not the AllSpark variation, but the slow, calm part." The underscore doesn't change at all, and I feel like stuff like this has been done better by people like James Newton Howard and Alexandre Desplat.

However, good for you guys for finding something interesting in it. Maybe I'm just spoiled on Desplat and Newton Howard.


Mephariel2017-12-10 18:32:50
I agree. The score feels so flat, and we hear stuff like this many times over already.


James2017-12-11 10:09:49
meh. That's your opinion. I agree with the fact of that the score is not interesting, but not to the point of wanting Howard or deplat as composers. This is inviable. Their niche is another.


Andrea2017-12-11 14:14:39
Desplat! Iím only 5 episodes in but Iím happy he didnít do it. This season is very entertaining and the score is so strong .


Brent2017-12-11 17:29:22
On its own merits, the score may not be particularly interesting. HOWEVER, I think it works perfectly within the series. I definitely wouldn't want Newton Howard or Desplat a part of this.


Olive2017-12-11 18:20:00
Howard and Desplat are A list composers anyway.


Andreas2017-12-13 08:41:39
Was this score recorded with a real orchestra? Sometimes it sounds like it comes straight from a computer. Like Your Majesty for example. Lorne uploaded 2 unreleased tracks btw.


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-13 11:52:29
I haven't heard it yet, but the majority of Balfe's scores are done with samples so I wouldn't be surprised at all


Mike2017-12-13 16:09:05
Edmund wrong again !!!!!balfe posted some photos of the recording sessions for the crown


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-13 23:11:35
I stand corrected. Though it's still possible that the score is a combination of live orchestra and samples, a lot of RCP music does that.


Peter782017-12-14 19:43:02
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music


Geoff2017-12-15 10:18:08
Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before


Gleyn2017-12-15 12:14:15
This score is BRILLIANT.

Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?

Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasons


AndrewBilling2017-12-15 23:05:42
Very impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesnít seem to be much of the main theme used ?


Martine2017-12-16 16:47:15
The show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what itís like


AndyP72017-12-16 19:27:34
Bring Him Home and Future King are great

Watched The Crown on christmas and and really noticed the music this season more than the last.You can definitely hear Balfes influence.the music for Princess Margaret is perfection


BrianFilm822017-12-26 12:24:46
Be My Portrait is beautiful


StevenMK2017-12-26 12:34:03
The series has an interesting mixture of styles with orchestral and electronic that make the show not feel dated even though it is a period drama.Bouden Duty has to be by Balfe.he really has finally started to find his own unique voice.


MikelK2017-12-26 16:42:38
Itís great binge watching over Christmas !!!!!a fantastic score by them both.what did Zimmer have to do with this season?

AndyP2017-12-26 22:54:51
Thanks for the credits. Basically Balfe and Gregson-Williams did it all then!! The Downfall is a brilliant track and features heavily in the episode


ArranFilmGeek2017-12-27 03:14:40
I find the blend of the orchestra and the synths different and quirky.Hints of Genius and Churchil in this score also but defiantly best tv score this year


AndrePM2017-12-27 14:36:08
Dismissed , Bring Him Home, Philips Dream are some of the best tracks on the album

Great soundtrack to a cool show. The music brings a lot of tension to the show and make it feel modern and not traditional.amazing team having Gregson-Williams and Balfe though

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2017-12-18 18:42:47
This seasons score is very good and feels more meaningful and thought provoking that last years.Much more development of the famous Duck Shoot and also more individual character lead themes.Excellent and hope it wins some awards this year

Andreas reply Replies: 0 || 2017-12-18 16:47:21
Anyone who knows how many "unreleased" tracks Lorne Balfe is going to post on Youtube. There already four of them. Why are they not included on the soundtrack? They sound amazing.

superultramegaa reply Replies: 5 || 2017-12-11 21:39:38
First, the "that's just your opinion" statement has no merit whatsoever. It's nothing but dismissive and disrespectful.

Second, maybe I should have specified. I don't think Desplat/Howard should have worked on this, I just think they've had scores that have done this style of score better (string focused, European sounding scores).

I am aware they are not TV composers. (Besides maybe Series of Unfortunate Events).


Jonathan2017-12-11 22:24:27
I think itís better than Desplat . BUT it doesnít matter.its whatís best for the show not who the better composer is !Crown score is fantastic and emotional . And perfect to images


JamesT2017-12-12 02:31:37
Personally, I am loving it!


WillFil2017-12-12 11:30:55
Hope this show never ends. Balfe and Gregson-Williams score fits in perfectly

Wow !!! Rupert Gregsonís Williams and Lorne Balfe . Two of the best RCP composers in a long time


Tom2017-12-08 01:34:23
Totally agree


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-08 12:06:39
They've both been around for a while, hell RGW was working already in the late 90s!


Peter 2017-12-08 14:10:05
Edmund is as negative as ever !!! Always has to make some dumb put down comment.I purchased the soundtrack this morning and loving it.Stunning


Olive2017-12-08 14:51:07
RGW was the first RCP composer with who Balfe worked.


Edmund Meinerts2017-12-08 14:55:48
I'm not being negative. I'm correcting a false statement. OP made it sound like these were some fresh new talents on the scene when they've been around for ages. I could say that Hans Zimmer is the best RCP composer in a long time as well, but that would be a patently ridiculous statement for exactly the same reasons.

Just because I'm one of maybe three people around here who doesn't constantly gush like some fanboy on YouTube (especially about Lorne Balfe this year for some reason), now I'm suddenly dumb and negative?


AndyP2017-12-08 16:41:31
Edmund - relax.You should just start a John Powell forum and only read and write in that.some of us are simply loving others music and enjoying their work.

Hybrid, why isn't Hans credited here? He said in an interview after the tour that he was working on the Crown season 2...


Iamtommie2017-12-08 23:03:17
When the intro in episode 1 started I heard some sort of extra dark percussion near the end. Maybe a worked on his Main Title again.
Maybe not.


Ian2017-12-09 02:32:27
I wouldn't be remotely surprised if Hans did some ghostwriting on this, or if he at least gave some ideas to Rupert and Lorne.
