Where is the albumYou're right, you do not know anything ... I hope that something is published since the movie seems to have problemswhen are we gonna have some info on the Dark Phoenix score or even a snippet of what it sounds like. We've heard nothing about the score at all since it was announced that Zimmer was doing itLast episode tonight with the soundtrack after that. Gonna be a great night!!!!Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.
Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt SprengersThe only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.
Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?Very interesting interview. Thanks man!
Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.

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
