Is there any word or time frame on the second release?Jenny of Oldstones was an old song in Westeros about a common woman named Jenny of Oldstones, a strange woman who a Targaryen prince rejected his claim to the throne to be with. Before a big battle, a character sings this song and a montage of the various characters plays as they prepare for battle. So that is the melody. The lyrics go like this:<br><br>High in the halls of the kings who are gone,<br>Jenny would dance with her ghosts; <br>The ones she had lost and the ones she had found<br>The ones who had loved her the most;<br>the ones who've been gone for so very long, she couldn't remember their names<br>they spun her around on the damp old stone<br>Spun away all her sorrow and pain.<br>And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.<br><br>They danced through the day and into the night<br>Through the snow that swept through the hall<br>From winter to summer and winter again<br>Till the walls did crumble and fall<br>And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.<br>Hybrid, please update this list. Is it possible that you could include the alternate/album version of Main On Ends (AKA Taking A Stand)?COMPLETE SCORES ARE AWESOMECareful, talking about complete scores or recording sessions can get your comment removed now.
No more superhero film score for me, he said .... :DThe complete score is so amazing!! I saw on YouTube too.CD RELEASE????PosiblyA surprise reference to be sure, but a welcome one.
The same thing happened to me George@Michael Baker - I can’t be the only one who read that as Han Solo right?Yeah... Wait till CD 2 and I'm sure we'll get a much stronger idea of what's solo Hans in here.@Edmund<br>I wonder if this is one of those situations where the material in film is derived heavily from the suites, with everyone either arranging it or adding elements onto it. Just guessing of course, I’m sure we’ll get a clear picture once the bonus stuff gets released.<br><br>And apparently there is about 16 hours of music “lying around”, going off of what Hans mentioned in the Vi-Control forums."heavily influenced" indeed :D <br>I really love Amity and I love how the theme appears in several other cues:<br>Reckless which features an epic/action rendition <br>Insertion = a short quote at the beginning <br>Coda = another call back to the theme<br><br>Been listening to the score since I saw the film. Love it. Eagerly waiting for CD2. I wonder if it includes an extended version of the last 2 minutes of Insertion - INCREDIBLE.

Very exited to hear Ben on Score: The Podcast tomorrow. Hope they'll talk about IT 2 & making Shazam!!!

Having heard the whole album a few times and gone through the process of what Wallfisch tried to do with his music for Shazam, this is not only the best DC album in years, it's also powerful enough to sit alongside (or at least close to) Williams's Superman. This is by and large (unless Hans comes back with a game changer for Dark Phoenix), the winning superhero film score of 2019.

Well played, Wallfisch!


mpolonest123 2019-04-07 02:02:55
It’s excellent in every respect. The orchestrations, mixing, and writing are all fantastic. The album does run a bit long (not a bad thing of course) and there are a lot of action cues piled on top of each other, but with some editing you have 50 minutes of Five-Star material.


Knight2019-04-07 02:16:20
While the score itself is great, I think Ben needs to use somebody like Alan Meyerson to mix his scores. I noticed that on almost every single one of his scores since A Cure for Wellness his mixing/recordings have been a bit shit. The mix problem is EXTREMELY prominent in Serenity, The Darkest Minds, Hellboy, Hostile Planet and to a lesser extent, Shazam and Wellness.
His scores are starting to sound too dry and "synthy" for lack of a better word. Listen to the orchestral recordings in Hostile Planet and Serenity, can anyone honestly tell me that they sound good?
I would love nothing better than to get another score from him on the level of Summer in February, Mully or Gamba cause those sound great.


Edmund Meinerts2019-04-09 17:06:47
Gotta say I somewhat disagree with the lavish praise here. The main theme is fantastic; the melody itself isn't that memorable, but the quality of the orchestral writing surrounding it is high. Indeed, the orchestrations and textures are of a very high standard throughout. However, far from there being 50 minutes of 5* material, I find that outside the suite presentation, the rest of the score feels messy. It's one of those scores that reacts to what's happening onscreen rather than actively driving it, so there are a ton of changes of direction. I feel like you can sort of tell that the director comes from a horror background because there's a lot of that stop-start quality you get from horror scores in the action music here, and I'm not a fan of that philosophy. I much prefer action music to have a more constant pulse while still developing in a dynamic way to match the scene (my perfect example of that balance being the wedding cue from At World's End).

Apparently there was a 3rd score release from Ben this that just flew under the radar. A documentary score no less.

and why isn’t it on here?

The staff here don't seem to care too much as of late about adding new stuff from RCP composers that aren't the big names. Jasha and Atli are still missing their latest efforts, and the new release of one of Mancina's old scores ain't here.


Hybrid Soldier2019-04-07 11:11:24
Probably because it'd be a good time for me to stop H-Z.com after 11 years ?


Knight2019-04-07 14:16:16
Are you stopping upkeep of this website in favor of the new one you mentioned earlier?

A few minutes ago about WaterTower Music release subway chase on YouTube today! It's a cool song.


MG2019-04-02 03:38:08
Sounds fantastic.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 2 || 2019-03-29 02:02:04
That main theme is incredible!

It’s basically a mix of John Williams and Wallfisch, and if the rest of the score is the same quality we might have one of the best scores this year.


Michael Baker2019-03-29 03:59:39
I agree. Great stuff. It's nice to hear some fun superhero bombast every once in a while. If the rest of the score is like the cues we've heard, I'll definitely be getting this one.


mpolonest123 2019-03-30 15:30:14
Does anyone else feel like 2:15-3:00 sounds exactly like Wallfisch’s “flying” music for “Peter Pan”?

Little side note: the minute I heard the song I immediately thought of the main tune from “Islands of Adventure” (Call To Adventure). Great theme if you haven’t had a chance to check it out...

I can't wait for this. After the debacle of JL, The DCEU has got back on track musically with Aquaman serving harmonic and electronic interpolation in spades, and Shazam seems to capitalize on that with a more traditional sound.

MG reply Replies: 2 || 2019-03-29 03:59:17
29 tracks? Woohoo!


Edmund Meinerts2019-03-29 10:47:06
I'd rather have 10 tracks and 70 minutes than 29 tracks and 40 minutes. :p


Iamtommie2019-03-29 13:10:20
It's 1 hour and 13 minutes long
