I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.
This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"Hahahahaha well I’m glad he got the credit then :DI absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.
Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!And I’m guessing Neill Blomkamp contributed somehow to the “We Own This Sky” theme that pops up throughout...NM
Jeff & Alex & Evan Goldman are regular Jackman team now. Alex scored a bunch of projects, hence his absence here.<br><br>Then you have Halli, Anthony Willis or Mounsey doing all sorts of things when available.Request the king of pride rock with circle of lifeAmon wrote some music before Hans took over (he has cues on his soundcloud I think), but I think he got credited (and just like 1 or 2% of the cues) more for specific sounds than music writing.Widows is terrible score, Inferno was ok, far from things like Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons.<br><br>But yes, listen this one, is gratifying see Zimmer can make things with orchestra like early 2000s. And this comes from a guy who loves Inception, Interstellar or ChappieThe fact that his name is in brackets makes me think he didn't work directly on the score but rather is credited because something of his was used. Maybe it was some of his production music rather than Elysium specifically.

No! I can't believe this! Gavin Greenaway is writing the additional music for "Spy Kids" with Harry Gregson-Williams, Heitor Pereira, Danny Elfman, John Debney and many-many others. And he's not there!


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-14 12:33:43
Uh...yes he is. He's listed on five tracks in the tracklist right above this comment.

Also, who appointed you Gavin Greenaway's knight in shining armor?


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 12:53:23
Nobody appointed me as Gavin Greenaway's knight in shining armor. I just looked closely. I'm sorry for my behaviour.


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 13:35:02
Besides, the photos of Gregson-Williams, Pereira, Fowler, Meyerson, McIntosh are here. But Greenaway's photo is missing!


joe2017-02-14 14:07:33
@ Michael Poleschuck: Mr. Greenaway, is it you?


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 14:09:25
No! It's just a guy, who visited this site for 5 years as anonymous and decided to take a active part in this and nothing more.


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 14:11:12
Finally!

Having met Gavin, I can confirm he's great.


Unfortunately during an update last year my pal Nicolas (yeah I love to blame others lol) erased all of Gavin's career on this site. I rebuilt it but probably missed a few things. Gavin won't be mad... lol


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-14 17:08:00
Cool! Interesting story: who was the original composer of the film? And how did it happened that the final product incorporated so many great composers in this?

This score is a whole cocktail of composers. Does anyone know how it sounds? It loks interesting


Lambegue2012-08-05 11:21:05
It's rather good. One can quite easily know who did what, so maybe it lacks a bit of unity, but it is still pleasant to listen. The highlight from the score are mainly the tracks by Elfman, Debney or Gregson-Williams, plus the "Floop's castle". The two tracks by Los Lobos are not bad, but really in another mood than the general score. So yes I think it's interesting to have it, and I remember it being quite cheap.


HGW42012-08-05 19:53:38
I agree! It is definitely worth purchasing. I bought a copy a year ago and I really enjoy it. It is nice to have a variety of composers on this score. I would recommend it for sure.

It's such a weird coincidence that people would pop up and start commenting on this page! I was just reminiscing about seeing this movie as a kid and thought, "Hmmm, I think I'll go find the soundtrack." Is this a new page, or have people never ever commented on it until just now?
