I know it's a lot to ask, but @Hybrid thinks you could put the credits of Mazzaro and Fleming?


Hybrid Soldier2019-06-16 23:55:41
All credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)


Anonymous2019-06-17 01:46:18
why does Amity say (traditional)?


Hybrid Soldier2019-06-17 08:58:59
Because it's heavily influenced by Henry Purcell, that's what Hans said :

"Dark Phoenix is all Henry Purcell... I felt the last few bars of “Dido’s Lament” with the endlessly descending line and the “Remember Me” perfect for the characters... less the tune, more the harmonic movement"


Edmund Meinerts2019-06-17 11:03:07
I guess I should know better at this point but I'm still a little disappointed that there are no solo Hans cues. Although I suppose there could be some hidden inside the longer album tracks.


Ahmad2019-06-17 16:53:55
"heavily influenced" indeed :D
I really love Amity and I love how the theme appears in several other cues:
Reckless which features an epic/action rendition
Insertion = a short quote at the beginning
Coda = another call back to the theme

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.


mpolonest123 2019-06-17 18:53:45
@Edmund
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.

And apparently there is about 16 hours of music “lying around”, going off of what Hans mentioned in the Vi-Control forums.


Michael Baker2019-06-17 19:07:37

Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.

Missing stuff:
- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells
- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off
- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...


badbu 2019-06-16 13:24:48
Yes! That piano part is amazing!
„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“


Zac2019-06-16 20:37:05
There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.


...2019-06-16 20:53:09
Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?


Zac 2019-06-16 21:51:41
No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.


Meta2019-06-17 01:16:11

been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)

people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.

also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.

There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.

Spor reply Replies: 5 || 2019-06-13 12:32:23
Ah, maybe it's not that bad. Gap is fantastic for the first two minutes. There's some nice stuff in the other tracks. But this is so derivative. Everything outside of Gap comes from somewhere else, Da Vinci Code, Interstellar, even older Hans like frigging Pacific Heigths and Spirit.

It's not a bad score but it sure is a massively overwhelmingly disappointing one. So Kinsberg wanted something progressive/conservative and fucked up his film and Hans went back to the 1990s to get some inspiration? Sounds plausible.



Ds2019-06-13 13:30:55
I'm curious... where did you hear Spirit?


Michael Baker2019-06-13 18:52:07
Some of the synth work throughout is definitely like Spirit. The first couple minutes of Coda are one example.


Ian Brown McCarthy2019-06-14 02:00:33
Yeah, while this does have a great deal more substance than most of the work Hans has done the past few years, I struggle to say it's a genuinely *good* score.

I mean, within the first minute I'm reminded of Dunkirk, then we get a pretty standard Zimmer/Balfe buildup we've heard a million times since Inception... and it doesn't get hugely better from there.

I will definitely give Zimmer credit for the unique and genuinely creative use of female choir in some of the cues, though.


AFan2019-06-14 10:28:34
I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.


Medigo2019-06-14 11:07:08
I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.

Seen the film last Friday, its definitely not as bad as they are saying it is. Not very good either, but a solid average. Loved the score! Works really well in the film, I need to give it a thorough listen tho. Been listening since Friday and Im only on track three now, but enjoying the hell out of it so far. Thank you Mr. Zimmer!

Even though I agree with the previous poster - would love to hear what Hans came up originally - but sadly a lot of this sounds like copying Interstellar (when it's good) and Dunkirk (when it's totally useless). Hans is not a man to innovate from score to score, so if all sounds like previous work?

I think everyone's going to bury this one as soon as possible. The film is a huge bomb, Zimmer's score is a copy-paste effort from better stuff in the past. Don't expect any of this to have any significance soon. Sad, I was expecting this to at least experiment with vocals (Johansson, etc did this stuff).

mpolonest123 2019-06-08 06:28:48
Same here!

I’m really itching to know what “ideas” Zimmer had throughout the process.

And just having seen the film I can easily say almost all of the score is included here, albeit edited together in longer suites.


Mephariel2019-06-08 10:51:54
I want to know if there is an extended version of the last 3 minutes of "Intimate." That 3 minutes is the best 3 minutes of action in the album.


mpolonest123 2019-06-08 16:53:34
Yeah, I would love to hear more of Magneto’s theme which felt surprisingly underplayed.

So a few notes on the score; the opening piano theme for Jean is on album, just moved to the end of “Frameshift”. In terms of what’s missing there are two or three variations on the X-Men tune not on album, some variations on the villain identity from “Negative”, some smaller atmospheric cues, and the amazing end credits piece. Definitely no MoS situation where anything major is missing though.

And does anyone else feel like the string variation of Jean’s theme in the opening of “Frameshift” sound similar to “Still” from Black Hawk Down?


BC2019-06-08 18:10:02
@Mephariel - I know right!!! "Reckless" is the track I can't stop listening to though. Perfect track for working out or playing action video games.

Iamtommie442019-06-08 20:37:54

@Iamtommie44 & Badbu Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.


Iamtommie442019-06-09 00:33:33
Not everything is correct with 'Frameshift'. But this is how I think the score of Dark Phoenix plays in the movie.

Gap: Space Mission
Dark (0:00-1:20): Back From Mission
Dark (1:20:end): Inside Jean's Head
Frameshift (0:00-7:08): Jean At Home / Jean Vs. X-Men) [Lot of it is alt.]
Frameshift (7:08-end): After crash / Logo (Alt.)
Amity: Funeral / Admit You're Wrong / Jean In Rain
Intimate: A New World / Helmet / The Girl Dies / Street Fight
Deletion: Magneto Crushed / Puppet Charles / Still Hope
Negative: Take It / Taken
Reckless: Train Fight
Insertion: Phoenix Rises
Coda: Aftermath / Chess


Jean-Luc2019-06-09 02:45:45
@Iamtommie44 You are right with every detail of these songs from the movie. I watched that movie today when, I listen all the songs from the whole movie has a complete score with a few missing songs wasn't here on the album. Also, Insertion and Reckless are my favorite songs, but I'm very obsessed with the Insertion song over & over, but the soundtrack is good too.


mpolonest123 2019-06-09 16:05:42
@Iamtommie44
The first two minutes or so of “Frameshift” are when Jean arrives at the island and meets Magneto. Outside of that cue though everything else is in the right order.


SteveR2019-06-09 18:43:10
Where in that chronological order would you put the first two minutes of "Frameshift"?


mpolonest123 2019-06-09 21:35:47
In between Amity and Intimate. It might over two minutes though, I can’t remember the length of the cue in film.


badbu 2019-06-10 10:18:18
One cue is missing i want so much!!!
When Jean and Charles drive to the school and stand in front of it.
There is in the beginning the x-men theme in a very nice variation and after that a

Just saw Dark Phoenix. Don't get all the backlash. Ok, it's not the best movie ever but it's not bad either. There are some faults in the script for my take, but the performamces, action sequences (especially the final train battle) were great. I liked the ending better than The Last Stand's ending.
The score fits the movie perfectly and I already liked the score, but this has increased after seeing the movie. I really wish we get a Deluxe release. I especially need the music that plays over the first half of the end credits. It's a mix between the X-Men theme & Dark Phoenix theme. Love it


vced2019-06-10 19:10:56
I'm also really interested in the 2nd CD.

The score as presented here is (in my opinion) really awful, basic, and rushed sounding, which makes me think the more interesting ideas didn't get used. Especially if it's been two years working on it. A bit like how On Stranger Tides is a bad score but you can hear the seeds of something cool and interesting developing in the concept guitar tracks.


David2019-06-10 19:57:24
Is the score on the album suites and maybe the second cd will be tracks heard in the movie? Anybody knows this???

HunterTech2019-06-08 01:35:51
Those are arguably the start of modern Zimmer, and comes after a lot of his 80s/90s work. You could say Gladiator is the midpoint, but even that is debatable.


SteveR2019-06-08 01:36:14
You do realize that there is a significant amount of synth in Gladiator, right??


mpolonest123 2019-06-08 02:24:12
You totally are entitled to your own opinion, but I definitely disagree with you massively here. KFP3 and Hidden Figures both 1-star? I think both of those are excellent, particularly Panda 3.

I guess it comes down to personal taste. As much as I absolutely love orchestral Zimmer I think electronic Zimmer can be just as good, albeit in a different type of setting. Chappie and Dark Phoenix both work extraordinarily well for me, and even Inferno has its moments.


Old2019-06-08 05:32:55

Just because someone has a negative opinion does not mean they are whining, no matter how harshly they express it.

A negative opinion on the score is something way different from all the entitlement and whining here. Sorry, but calling Hans Zimmer lazy and other shit isn't really valid criticism.

I think this is solid Zimmer effort. It is not mind-blowing great like Interstellar or The Lion King or Gladiator, but a very interesting score. It is a mixture of melodic, reflective, and abstract Zimmer all at once.

"Insertion" is truly Zimmer at his power anthem glory. I think "Gap" and "Coda" are solid themes as well. The end of "Intimate" has some of the best action section, but too bad it is so short.

What tracks are more “power anthems” ??

Am I the only one who thought Interstellar was just okay? It had a few great tracks, like "Mountains" but a lot of it was just kind of loud and obnoxious for me.

And the mixing for the movie was entirely too loud, particularly during the black hole scene before the tesseract. Hans said during an interview that he told Nolan that he thought that music was too loud, and Nolan told him that it was his movie and he could do what he wanted.

That story was about the ending of The Dark Knight, I think :-p

Not sure why people think Interstellar is loud. Maybe the mixing is loud in some parts of the film, but compared to other Zimmer score like Chappie, Interstellar isn't even loud.

"Intimate" and "Reckless" are honestly the best tracks on the album, which is saying something because I honestly loved all of them.

After hearing that the film is, pardon my French, a hot ass mess, I'm really glad that Hans delivered the goods with the score. It's everything I was hoping for and then some, and dear god the themes...after the blandness of Days of Future Past and Apocalypse's scores, it's nice to finally hear some new, inspired themes. Jean's, Phoenix's, the new X-Men theme, and the brief usage of Magneto's new motif are all excellent, and are expertly used.

"Reckless" and "Intimate" are my favorites. Both are dark, intense, relentless and just epic.

It's been said that for DOFP, Ottman was held back by Singer to make something that was more RCP in style, which didn't sit too well with him. His main theme from X2 almost didn't return because Singer thought that it would've been seen as too cheesy in the modern landscape, and that a producer eventually had to convince him to keep it. Xavier's theme is pretty good, as is all the X2 callbacks, but it's clear that Ottman just didn't put his all into it. Apocalypse was much better, but people likely don't discuss that one purely because they didn't like the film, so any merits were brushed aside.

I'm not too sure sure if I'll wait until after watching the film to hear the full score, but "Gap" and the other samples has left me confident that the score will be more interesting than Zimmer's most recent efforts.

That I didn't know, and it restores a good amount of my faith for Ottman. I can't blame him for not putting his all into it, especially when it seems like Singer kinda signed off after DOFP and was just getting another easy paycheck with Apocalypse.

I didn't like Apocalypse, but I wasn't really impressed with the score either. Not the worst score I've ever heard, and not the worst in the franchise, but not great either.
