I am really sorry but WHY THERE IS NO CONCERT IN POLAND???Also where I think the "Spidey Theme" listed here is from, since what's on there is basically a slightly expanded "Spidey Logo - Flying" that doesn't quite fit in with length of the scene in the movie.Before any of the expanded leaks came about, there was this 10 track set that apparently came from promotional materials for the film. While a good chunk of cues are from the final score, 3 seem to be demos that were much harsher in sound. Two of them being the Electro Showdown tracks listed here, which weren't added to the largest set currently out there (that has 2 other tracks from the 10 tk set).<br><br>Of course, there is the website that is forbidden to mention that you can find it on, but I'm sure it's reached other outlets as well if you know where to look. Was going to write about this earlier when the previous set of posts asking similiar questions were made, but I got sidetracked.Would love an instrumental track of this“The Alethiometer” might be my new favorite track of the year. Those chord progressions scream JNH/Jerry Goldsmith and are pretty similar to Balfe’s work on Beyond: Two Souls/Blackwood.<br><br>I’m glad to see this score getting some love, I’ve always been annoyed with how people seem to slam Balfe for his more workmanlike efforts while ignoring the stronger scores he has done over the years.
I really like this score. Not a big fan of Balfe, but really enjoy this one.<br><br>And is it me or does The Tales Of Lee Scoresby really sound like Sweetwater from Westworld?Hi,<br><br>the VIP ticket prices are very high and I wonder if a Meet & Greet is included or possible?Edit: The track "Farewell" is actually the track titled "Unused Source".<br>I've looked for a while now and can't find a track specifically titled "Farewell" that matches the one listed here. Also, both of the alternate versions of the  "Electro Showdown" are evading my search. Do they actually exist?<br>I agree, lovely choir compositions; although I find myself preferring his work on Kyrie simply due to the larger orchestral/instrumental arrangments.
Tickets bought!Amazing album!His music will probably be as far removed as he is lol which is probably a good thingBeautiful Score!So glad he’s doing this.
Reddit as always delivers this info. People who saw the test screening  compared it with the released version. As I mention, before Jaime Kennedy's character was in the original cut however like I said there was no contribution to his part in the story so he got cut out of the film. The ending was changed in the reshoot with a stand-in however as of yesterday the 4k bluray will have the  original ending as part of the 2 deleted scenes. Ruth Negga's character was a better opinion to connect to Pitt's character and as such the interaction was what gave a quicker pace to the story. To be fair, viewers mentioned that the original cut was more BORING and the re shoots were done to put some type of action to gain the audience's interest. The music was nice though so at least there was something right!Hybrid, how involved is Zimmer on this project? Is it more of a collaboration or he is just going to do a theme or something? Also, is he done with this?While he helped scoring the very first MCU film !The fact they have replaced a composer means they want some with experience and Joe Kramer is not that based on only one big movie.David Arnold would be a great choice but if not Balfe or Zimmer or get them both like SherlockMy guess it must be Joe Kraemer. It would be good balance since Lorne takes Mission Impossible franchise and Kramer go to Bond :)<br><br>Maybe it won't be experimental (like it could have been with Dan Romer's work), but definitely a new voice with fresh ideas for the Bond's series.

This is a superb DVD! For a ivnlioist, Frank Peter Zimmermann represents the highest level of musicianship. The Documentary is not just about Bach, in fact it has lots of other footage, including his son and his own performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Danish Radio Symphony (this is excellent). He plays like Kogan, not surprisingly and his technique is as flawless as any ivnlioist I have seen or heard.

Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt also worked together on various works including the GLADIATOR and INVINCIBLE soundtracks, but don't expect to listen to anything similar, in the score for THE PLEDGE.

Unlike the last few Zimmer scores, which were vast, dramatic, intense and epic, THE PLEDGE, is built on a more down-beat atmosphere (and that’s of course due to the nature of the movie) The score opens with a beautiful and haunting melody sang by a woman and repeated by a violin.
Track02 contains several percussion beats and creates a scary atmosphere. Parts like this can be found a lot in the score -- where percussion, electronic sounds and effects, scary voices, piano, violin, the female voice and mandolin create a creepy atmosphere, like track04, track05, track09, track12, track13, track15.
In track03, the main theme makes its first appearance. It consists of guitar, mandolin, violin and piano and can be heard several times in the film, sometimes in different versions - the main instrument could be piano in one, violin or guitar in other (track07, track08 (more upbeat and fast, played by beautiful guitar), track11, track15).
The score also has a piano theme that can be firstly heard in track06 and repeats itself several times during the film (like in track10). It has a sad and lovely tune, a real treat for the ears!
In track 12 we have the beautiful female voice again in another haunting melody that features great atmosphere, feeling and depth.
Track14 is a combination of all the themes and great parts of the entire score. It consists of the female voice, vastly beautiful and sad piano melodies and the violin for escort-- probably the best track in this album and some of Zimmer's greatest works up-to-date.
Track16, which closes the film, is also a combination of several themes and parts of the film. It starts with the piano theme (heard in track06 and track10) and goes on with haunting and scary electronic effects and sounds created by percussion, guitar, mandolin and creepy violin. Then the piano theme is played by violin this time and makes a great difference. The track, (at about 3 minutes of play), gets loud, creepy and scary-- then calms down and ends with a more intense variation of track 14, played by violin (as the main instrument) piano, mandolin, guitars and loud percussion, providing the score (and film) with a more up-beat ending.

The entire score is a great work, which has lovely melodies and themes for easy listening. All these create a sad and sometimes creepy atmosphere that fits perfect in the theme and subject of the film. THE PLEDGE is not your typical Hans Zimmer or Klaus Badelt score for sure, with the great choir themes, loud brass and dramatic, epic atmosphere and feeling. It's just lovely, sad and hauntingly beautiful - quality music for all the music and movie lovers, and -of course- Zimmer followers.
