I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through ParisDoes anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)
First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.Where can we listen this score ?It's a good score, nice blend between orchestra and synths.<br><br>But, i think WW is more interesting score
I'm listening right now, one of the best works by Tom, by far.<br><br>Beautiful choir, great action tracks (even there is a great renditions of the themes, Windflower with that version of Shrike's theme is gorgeous) and multiples themes.I'm guessing CONFESSIONS & REGRETS is Tom Sells out his Clone?I have done this for... so many things ! :PThanks so much!01 - THE ISLAND AWAITS YOU => 1M1 MAIN TITLES + 1M2 NIGHTMARE #1<br>02 - WHERE DO THESE TUBES GO? => 1M2 MISSING A SHOE + 4M24 ROUTE 39<br>03 - SECTOR 6 => 4M19C CENSOR CHASE PT 3 + 4M19D THE OUTSIDE WORLD<br>04 - STARKWEATHER => NOT IN MIXES (Album idea or suite idea ?) + 6M33H MVC PT 6 THE BIG R<br>05 - AGNATE UKULELES => 2M10 AGNATE UKULELES + 2M10B UKULELES 2 - ELECTRIC B<br>06 - YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PURPOSE IN LIFE => 3M14A RELEASING THE MOTH + 3M14B LIMA'S DEMISE<br>07 - MASS VEHICULAR CARNAGE => 1MD HEALTH CLUB (ALBUM SONG VERSION)<br>08 - RENOVATIO => 5M32B TRACKING THE CLONES<br>09 - I'M NOT READY TO DIE => 3M15 STARKWEATHER'S DEMISE (EDITED)<br>10 - THIS TONGUE THING'S AMAZING => 7M43 THIS TONGUE THING'S AMAZING + 6M38 CONFESSIONS & REGRETS<br>11 - MASS WINNINGS => 7M44 MASS WINNINGS + 7M45 RETURN TO INSTITUTE + 7M45 RETURN TO INSTITURE PT 2<br>12 - THE CRAZIEST MESS I'VE EVER SEEN => 3M16-17 A PRODUCT ON THE LOOSE + 3M18A CENSOR CHASE PT 1<br>13 - SEND IN THE CLONES => 5M29 TRAIN STATION CHASE + 5M31-32 IN LA - CALVIN KLEIN<br>14 - MY NAME IS LINCOLN => 8M52 THE END OF MERRICK<br><br>;)
Hybrid is it possible that you could do a crossreference of what cues here = the ones on album like you did for King Arthur and Transformers 4?And maybe there's too much synth work in both cause... Andrew K worked on both ?! lolMothersbaugh isn't the only person out there to use 80s synth, you know. You are after all, on the website named after perhaps the greatest pioneer of it in terms of film music. <br><br>Also, there is nothing about this film that screams "Thor Ragnarok" ripoff. If anything, the appropriate place to compare is Black Panther- however, as Aquaman and his mythology predates Black Panther by several years, that argument is rendered moot.<br><br> Sure, we have regal similarities (king, set in kingdom, evil half brother) but it literally ends there. The story is quite basic, but nowhere like Ragnarok in its entirety. Ragnarok was about two brothers putting aside their differences to stop their evil sister from unleashing Ragnarok itself, whilst Aquaman is about Arthur Curry being forced to reconnect with his Atlantean heritage, and it's explicitly a quest for him to clear Atlantis from a corrupt, purist ruler who wants to hurt the surface world because of how the humans have been mistreating the seas. Aquaman is very much its own thing, and it doesn't need any such comparisons. And I bet, it will stomp past Ragnarok at the box office overall. <br><br>the main theme is quite similar to Jackman's Kingsman ( the first three note)<br><br>andd..<br><br>I assume it is the studio's mandate for RGW to go (and adapt..or imitate?) Mothersbaugh's Ragnarok with its 80s synth. <br><br>----<br><br>Having seen the movie, i understand why RGW chose the 80s style, because basically, Aquaman is Thor Ragnarok underwater. <br>Dont get me wrong, the visual spectacle is amazing and colorful ( in a good way), some of the cinematography is downright breathtaking,but i really did have a hardtime enjoying this movie in its fullness beacuse the blatant Ragnarok ripping-off here and there.., and dont get me started on the story...<br>Really, the visual did the heavy lifting in this movie ( and it succeeded in overcoming the weak storyline)Um, is there a freaking Pitbull remix of Africa on here? What the heck?

Hybrid, is Zimmer's Scoring the Drive going to be available on itunes/Amazon, etc.?



Mike2018-08-22 05:03:23
Interesting track... Though it kinda just sounds like Hans threw Celebrate the Oscars, Living Football, and the Volvo Prologue into a blender. lol. I think the Volvo V90 Prologue is still the most engaging thing he's done like this.

another imitation game from Zimmer:

the first five notes of this theme (that's the most integral part of the theme anyway) is a DIRECT COPY of Andrew Lockington's Atlantis theme in Journey 2. You can find out here:

### EDITED ###

sad:(


Edmund Meinerts2018-06-11 13:52:09
Ha, I noticed that as well, but I doubt it was intentional. Besides, that Lockington theme itself is kind of reminiscent of Trevor Rabin's National Treasure...Originality is overrated anyways :p


aldan2018-06-12 10:48:47
Well, the link is DELETED why is that? Did i violate something? Is freedom of speech is no longer tolerated here in this site?

Sad :(


Damien, Moderator2018-06-12 20:25:18
Because your link was to a page where is written "I do not own the right of the music". So the guy that did that, did something he is not allowed to and clearly knows it but did it despite all.

I think you gave enough information on the piece you want to speak about for those that want to check to listen it.


Hale2018-06-14 17:56:53
Aldan, what you hear depends of what you love.
Personnaly, I hear the Final Fantasy 7 Main Theme Notes... But the style, the arrangement and this build-up construction is totally Zimmer.

There is some "Celebrate the Oscars" here

Disappointing to see Zimmer write music for such a corrupt organization, but oh well :p


Hybrid Soldier2018-06-09 20:14:41
Oh yeah because film studios are so much better...


lol


Jono662018-06-10 00:43:24
Always love Edmunds comments ! Pointless but yet enjoyable .This theme will be heard and enjoyed by more people than any film score !!!!zimmer is the best


Antonmusix2018-06-10 09:41:58
Been running to this song every morning since it was released .

EPIC EPIC EPIC


superultramegaa2018-06-10 13:24:49
Hey circle jerking bots, this is a discussion forum. Every fucking comment is pointless. This is a place for people to discuss and give opinions. None of this is necessary for society.

By the way Hybrid, do you know how long it's going to take for the new site with accounts to be made? These bots really ruin the discussion and grind every conversation they're in to a halt.

The reason I'm sure they're bots or spam at this point is because they always do nothing but praise Zimmer and Lorne Balfe, no other composer, and half the time their comments are completely unrelated to the discussion. Just a chance to go after only Edmund (for some reason), or praise things with generic comments like "EPIC EPIC EPIC" or "Great to hear big themes".


Backbiter2018-06-10 17:06:48

I never understood the attacks on Edmunds's comments. Is everyone so braindead that they can't conceieve the fact that someone has a different opinion?


Maunsel2018-06-10 18:35:47
Zimmer does FIFA ! WOW now I will watch football
Hope he plays this life on the tour


Medigo2018-06-11 10:12:44
Sometimes a comment is made where I wonder what it even adds.

But Edmund is not really a problem. That 'Lorne bafle' guy on the other hand

Hans Zimmer composer of the Battlafield V??


Mike (OTM)2018-06-10 21:20:38
Same question! Is this confirmed?

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-09 03:11:41
Did Lorne actually co-write this one, or are the credits messed up, like with the Volvo prologue?


Peter2018-06-09 08:26:21
Great to hear big themes again from Zimmer

Ro reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-08 21:55:37
Awesome tune! Hearing HZ on lively, melodic and memorable music is always a treat. It doesn't really have the sort of "sports vibe" that I thought it might have given the title it carries but I absolutely adore how it has me picture "progress" and "achievement" in my head.


Andreas2018-06-09 01:49:26
I love football and love Zimmer.

An amazing piece of music that reflects my passion for the sport

Bravo
