No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...This is great news.Maybe Balfe’s scores to Ghost in the Shell now can get released.<br>Over 6000 people have signed the petition for Ghost.yea, that should be enough for meIt's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming. <br>Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;) <br><br>Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :Pyes!yes!yes!<br>i can't wait!!!!!!!
And I can tell you Hans brought the matter to the very head of Disney Music... Everyone seems game to release it, just need to work out some technicalities...He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.<br><br>https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=mHmKZbUZiIA<br><br>"I did a film recently that got away, but we wrote 16 hours of music. We're actually fighting to get another CD released because the film didn't do anything, just to have it out there. Because you can't use again in something else, so it'd be nice to have it out there. So that it doesn't disappear into a rubbish bin".Life's Not Fair first part is similar > Tears of the Sun - Yekeleni Part 1 lolAny idea on the name of the song from the trailer?Honestly the biggest problem with this new version for me is the lack of new variants of the themes. They mostly just repeat verbatim Hans' original ideas with little to no innovation or changes made most of the time. <br><br>It also doesn't help that cues that did have wonderful variations such as "Nala Attacks", and "Nala & Simba" have been shortened to mostly cut them out. The worst cut being  for the ending to "Mufasa's Ghost" which originally peaked the emotion with that lovely variation of Simba/The One True King theme transitioning into the Pride Rock theme, all of which is absent now.
The comic con trailer for Season 3 looks excellent.<br><br>Really looking forward to next season & score.<br><br>I saw some early 1900 world. (One of the other parks?) Hope Djawadi does something cool with that.<br><br>Very excitedAfter Original Score<br><br>Tracklist:<br>1. Opening (1:33)<br>2. Class Start (0:51)<br>3. Tessa Meets Hardin (1:40)<br>4.

Main Theme (2:20)<br><br>Hybrid this score is good?It's indeed a shame so much mhsic is missing from the official album.<br><br>Love to hear more!how about credits for the LLL set then?I'm just curious why there's so much dead air in the FYC tracks. Cues like "Shut it Down", "Burton Visits Prime Minister", or "Megatron has Squeeks" just have nothing to them! <br><br>No themes to speak of besides one horn blast of "Quintessa", no interesting melodies, or rhythm, just dead electronics and weak-feeling drums and strings which really doesn't fit in with the series' style. Not even the fourth movies'.
Thanks Hybrid for explaining that. Makes more sense now.Yes it is because the FYC is horrible... The OST is what Steve & co wrote. The FYC is what came out of the Music Editing Factory, which I don't dig at all. Lots of micro edits & transformations Steve probably didn't even hear... lol<br><br>Real final mixes would look like the OST, not like the FYC...You gotta realize one thing, this score is US recorded so every new 15 min of score you release, you gotta pay back reuse fees. So it's very complicated & costy and that's why they released "only" 15 min of extra score.<br><br>If it was recorded in the UK, they could have released 2 hours of bonus tracks it wouldn't have cost anything more... :)<br><br>As for a chrono order, since all cues are mixed together in different tracks in the OST, it gets complicated... It works like that :<br><br>ARTHUR => Theme Suite + 5m30 + 1m05<br>KINGDOM OF ATLANTIS => 3m20-21<br>IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE => 1m01 + 1m04B<br>ATLANTEAN SOLDIERS => Theme Suite + 5m33 + 2m12<br>WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? => Theme Suite<br>THE LEGEND OF ATLAN => 6m39 + 4m23<br>SWIMMING LESSONS => 3m19 + 3m19B + 3m19C<br>THE BLACK MANTA => Theme Suite + 9m69<br>WHAT COULD BE GREATER THAN A KING? => 7m54 + 7m55 + 7m55A<br>PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD => 9m64 + 2m07<br>SUITED AND BOOTED => 8m57 + 8m59<br>BETWEEN LAND AND SEA => 7m51 + 8m61<br>HE COMMANDS THE SEA => 8m60 + 9m65<br>MAP IN A BOTTLE => 6m42 + 8m56<br>THE RING OF FIRE => 5m29 + 8m62<br>REUNITED => 9m68<br>TRENCH ENGAGED => 7m52<br>MERA MONTAGE => 6m43B + 6m48<br>HOME INVASION => 1m04 + 3m15<br>SAVING POPS => 3m18<br>AHAB WAVES => 3m17 + 2m06B<br>ASK THE SEA => 2m08B<br>OBLIGATION => 5m32<br>DUNES => 5m37-38Heitor Pereira, Satnam Ramgotra and Richard Harvey are credited musiciansSounds like a Zimmer version of the Top Gun Anthem to me.

Thank you for posting all these booklets. Do you get the info from CD booklets?


Michael Fields2019-02-09 12:35:19
No, Knight. Usually i watch movies till the credits and find all information in end titles.


Michael Fields2019-02-09 12:36:50
But sometimes i find in Internet booklets of soundtracks. It's really helps!

That pounding sound of cellos and violins that kick in about 90 seconds into "Escape" is absolutely fantastic. I like it even more once the violins start to overtake the cue a little while later. Had this minute-long passage on repeat like crazy since I discovered it. Sure do hope to hear stuff like this in scores more often.

Meh. It really isn’t a bad score, but it is probably one of the most cliche things I’ve heard in a while. You have the female vocals for the lead (haven’t heard that before) with the same stock action music from every other YA score. Even the main theme sounds vaguely similar to RGW’s Wonder Woman theme.

It’s funny that they apparently use music from Divergent in the film, because much of this sounds like a lesser version. And considering how talented Wallfisch is, I honestly don’t understand why they would hire him to write something like this. #confused


superultramegaa2018-08-03 16:08:02
Yeah, it's probably just the problem with these cookie cutter YA films that all have the same tone and the same theme of "adults just don't understand our struggle, man." To be honest I didn't even like James Newton Howard's Hunger Games scores. I think the blandness of the films just translates over to the music. E

ven something like Ender's Game where you'd think sci fi would give Jablonsky plenty of opportunities, ended up being a combo of bland ambiance and stock Game of Thrones-esque cello music. Wallfisch's score sounds cliched and stock because this movie is probably cliched and stock (judging from the trailers).


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-03 16:12:15
The irony is probably that the score to Divergent, itself, was absolutely butchered & half rejected in the film ! lol


mpolonest1232018-08-03 16:29:02
Lol that really was a crime, JXL’s score for that was probably one of his best.

And wasn’t this directed by the same lady who did KFP2 and 3? Which could explain the temp issues, going by what happened on KFP2...


MrZimmerFan2018-08-03 21:01:34
Actually, I like Ender's Game, even if the main theme is something like Game of Thrones (altough, I think has more in common with the main theme from A Nightmare on Elm Street).

As for The Darkest Minds, if is not of the best works by Wallfisch, i like it, a lot, his more emotional tracks are the best (the action tracks are the expected, but more engaging than the actual kind of stuff of this YA movies), and i have to say, i don't consider Divergent Junkie's best, is kinda enyojable, as for my taste (i prefer The Dark Tower or the recent Tomb Raider, even Black Mass more)


Mephariel2018-08-04 06:02:04
If Tomb Raider is your best work, you are in trouble as a composer.

IMO, Mad Max is by far his best work.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 10:02:12
As for my taste, Mephariel, I have more enjoyement with Tomb Raider than Mad Max, IMO.

2 cues from Junkie XL’s Divergent Score are used towards the end of this film. Does stuff like that bother anyone else? It was supposed to be an emotional scene but all I could do was think about how the music was being reused.


...2018-08-03 08:02:00
I’m disappointed that Wallfish wrote a score like this that sounds like Junkie XL

This sounds so disappointing. I didn’t think we’d hear this kind of stuff from Wallfosh who seemed to be such a great writer. This sounds like everything else and not like Wallfish.

One-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!

They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.
