I found myself more entertaining by this one (after multiple listenings) than with Skyscraper, but not more than TLK or TMNT and TLWH.<br><br>The themes are there, very simplistic, but effective (the melodie for RST twisted in 'Harting', for example or the more melodic and peaceful theme in 'KT'), and yes, the sound design, but in the defense of Jab, he is far more rhytmic than others attepmting it (the element of horror hearing in 'Martin Axe' or the percussive twisted agressive in 'The Tunnel') or the more echoing 'The Island' guitar riffs in 'Ray Garrison', even he reutilizes the percussive timing Decepcticon theme for the motif (i think) for Bloodshot.<br><br>Maybe, i gave him more credit, but in his defense, i was expecting something more electronic (plenty electronic are here), but is more orchestral and melodic i was expecting.Sadly this one failed to impress in any way for me. I felt like falling asleep for much of this album. Overall too simplistic, ugly, and cliched with very difficult to pin down thematic material, as the melodies are so minimalist.To whom it may concern...<br><br>Is it possible to download or in any other way purchase the Hannibal (Expanded) score somewhere? I have the original motion picture soundtrack, but would LOVE to have them both..<br><br>Best regards<br><br>Nicholas10 and 16 are missing from the store pack.Most probably
I am not a hybrid, i will try to give my opinion. I think, music in 5 season will come out when and 6 season. But I really want to be wrong!!! :)It's very sad...(((The 'Allentown Brothers' track is pretty damn awesome (find it on YouTube). It's like a mix between gothic Elfman, Desperate Housewives and Transformers. I love it.<br><br>It's one of those scores that people don't talk about much but it's actually pretty cool. <br><br>An awesome venue would be the Opera House in Odessa.Want this so bad!!!
Does anyone have a breakdown of this with the official score album?<br>Hats off to Batu Sener for working on many of the score's best cues though!It all comes to personal preference I think. Personally Iíve moved on from collecting cdís (or anything really) and would rather have everything digital simply to utilize space. <br><br>That being said, I completely understand the appeals of having physical media, it would be sad to see that go away for the people who really love it.It's not only to appreciate the work, its to have something "real" in your hands, for your music collection. I don't like only to have a digital music archive. Of course, i rip all the cds i own to WAV and MP3. But i want to have them in my physical music collection.These day, sure. But we usually get news of the next one by the time he's finished wrapping up the current one.
Powell only does 1 score a year.Still no news on his next score? Is he taking a break or something? Working on more concert stuff?Was pleasantly surprised by this one when I first heard it. Outside of the Ďmodern scoringí portions you get some fun noir music for the squad, solid action writing, and even some good emotional cues.<br><br>Also gotta love the rhythmic idea from Antz popping up here...Also, the use of the guitars by Jablonsky, are still the best since the 90sI give a spin (almost 4 years after my last listening), it grown on me (still don't consider of the best of Jab), but much better than Skyscraper (ok score) and Battleship (guilty pleasure, but not a good score by any means), i like the style of Jablonsky in this one, his rhythms (but i still don't care about the 'motif' for Cohen or certain sound design tracks like 'You Can't Shoot Me' or 'You Know the Drill')<br><br>But still has such cool action moments (Hot Potato With a Grenade) and emotional/romantic moments, and still enjoyed that from this.

He mentions on a podcast that he kind of fucked up his relationship with Jeffrey Katzenberg around that time. It's all good now though apparently.

I second Edmund's response there ;)
Neither of them seem the type to do much co-composing these days (aside from with assistants), but I'd be excited for any project that has both of them attached.


Powellfan2019-08-07 19:31:44
Fuck that was stupid of me. That was meant to reply to the last thread.


Hybrid Soldier2019-08-07 19:45:09
John & Harry are still close.

They never miss a chance to compete with each other. Back then it was with co-compositions, now it's more with tennis... lol

But they've never lost touch...


Powellfan2019-08-07 20:13:49
Haha, that's cool. For some reason the idea of composers doing anything not music-related just doesn't cross my mind :)

I see you enjoy the little games you get to play with all of the hints and vague allusions Hybrid. ;)

"Eating Alone" is a very lovely track.


Edmund Meinerts2019-08-03 17:34:16
Yeah it's gorgeous isn't it? A Harry Gregson-Williams contribution I believe. I wish it was a bit longer though.


Mike2019-08-03 18:51:16
Reused in "Starry Night."

Unrelated, is there any particular reason John Powell didn't return to score the sequels with Harry?


jjstarA1132019-08-05 02:20:36
Powell says in this interview with Polygon that he "pushed a little too hard" with his own ideas on the first Shrek (and Harry did most of the score anyway), so when he didn't get asked to do Shrek 2, he thought it made sense. "Everybody wants you to have strong ideas," he says, "they just donít want you to be a dick about it."

Hopefully we will see HGW & JP reunited very soon ! ;)

Dream team!


lord silly nipples2019-08-06 01:58:55
I always assumed it was because of either scheduling issues or money that Powell didn't return.

I seen that in the upcoming Disney (Zootopia)the music will be composed by Harry Greson-Williams and John Powell. Is this true?


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-01 08:54:40
That seems HIGHLY unlikely...remember when those two were rumored to be scoring Breaking Dawn together? :p

Any particular reason John Powell didn't work on the next 3 Shrek films?

Very good, emotive music

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2007-09-03 00:00:00
LOL

Hans (Zimmer) didn't make the music for the first Shrek film. Harry Gregson-Williams have been the composer for all three films (toghether with John Powell on the first one).

Without Hans compositions shrek wouldnt be what it is, everyone remembers the music from shrek.

i think he is a tremendous composer. Shrek had brilliant music in it.
