Well it's complicated cause on the first film it was done such in a hurry that some themes became more "situation themes" than "character themes". But yeah, there's a loooooooooooot !I did a breakdown for the hell of it a while back, the sheer amount of themes/motifs is astounding, not quite as many as Lord of the Rings or Star Wars but very close!<br><br>It’s tricky to really place some of the theme meanings in as much as they were repurposed for the other films through temp tracking.I was recently revisiting all of this scores and I was wondering...<br><br>Could anyone help me identify all of the themes from the whole saga and tell mewhat they represent?<br><br>I already got a lot of them like the Kraken, Davy Jones, Mermaids, the main theme, etc. But others are still a bit confusing on what they represent, like for example the theme Neely and Badelt created in the first movie that were used in the following movies.<br><br>Thanks in advance!why no cd release?Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.
yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>
Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?
i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>

I do really like benjamin wallfisch's new score for the invisible man, which is release today in cinema. I'm a fan of wallfisch's film score since lights out and including other film scores, but i begin to hear the score in spotify & youtube and i do like the score with the full orchestra & electronic music within the film music and there are two themes for the film but there are most motif, like mr.zimmerfan says.

I just hope that this page can released the soundtrack details of The Invisible man soon and this score is good.

If you care about Ben's work in horror, you gonna like this (the strings and themes sounds mostly like A Cure for Wellness), and lots of abrasive electronics.

If you don't care, that's other story.


MrZimmerFan2020-02-28 09:23:18
The Invisible Man, would be one of the most dark, hard-hearing scores by Wallfisch, by far, multiple people will hate this score -i know, is difficult listening horror scores-, but when is good, is good.

If you love Lights Out, the two ITs, speacially, A Cure for Wellness, The Invisible Man is for you: dark, unpleasing (the theme for Elisabeth Moss' character is a beautiful melodie, example in 'Denouement', constantly accosed -rightly word- with the sounds of the Invisible Man, he has not theme, more motif and tremendously agresive sound desing, you can here listen in 'Attack') and very Hermann-esque (the score was only recorded with string orchestra, say by Wallfisch).

Like i said before, is not a score for everyone, but if you love Wallfisch's writing for horror, this one is for you

Wallfisch has compose the score for The Invisible Man, another horror score for the best guy today for the job


mpolonest123 2020-01-28 20:07:32
That’s a cool choice, I’m hoping for something more like “It” and less like “Light’s Out”.


MrZimmerFan2020-01-28 20:13:42
Honestly, i think i will be that few people who likes Lights Out. But his best horror score is A Cure for Wellness

Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...

I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL


Edmund Meinerts2020-01-26 16:23:36
I'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.

Jean-Luc reply Replies: 1 || 2020-01-22 15:31:27
He is scoring to Mortal Kombat reboot movie, I saw that news from film music reporter, but mortal Kombat 1995 score was my favorite score.


ThePhantasm 2020-01-22 19:07:36
I just saw this, EXTREMELY HAPPY!!!! he's so dope and talented apparently he's already done a few tracks cause the actor lewis tan sais he liked what he already heard.

Anybody else notice that the track "Spider Attack" actually cuts a fairly noticeable section out at the beginning? When you know who is attacked by the Deadlights, there's those low blasts like the "Deadlights" track from Chapter 1.

It shouldn't be a biggie though: it seems to be an easily-replicatable section.

What, no one's commenting on this? It's both great and massively aggravating. There's so many moments of ethereal melodic beauty but they get violated by massively aggressive sound procession. Yes, it is a frigging film score. Anyways, you lot will enjoy the Shore reference in The Ritual of Chud.


mpolonest123 2019-08-30 15:39:18
How you end up enjoying this depends on how you felt about the first It.

On one hand BW really did wonders on the orchestral side of things. He definitely focuses on the fantasy aspect moreso this time around, with portions sounding closer to the magical parts of “Shazam”. The last handful of cues are stunning.

On the other, many of the horror tracks seem to bleed together here. There doesn’t seem to be the same amount of variety as the first score. I also noticed that certain cues pull heavily from the first one, something JNH tends to do in his sequel scores.


MrZimmerFan2019-08-30 18:30:27
I like the first IT, but i am throughfully enjoyed this one a lot more.

Specially the last handful tracks are terrific, overall, a tremendous good score


Meta2019-08-31 15:21:58
As benjamin climbs the charts in popularity in scoring movies, i have to say he's been hit or miss with me.

Blade Runner, It pt 1 and Hellboy (only because it reminds me of Xbox Killer Insinct music) stand out...the rest to me are meh


Knight2019-08-31 21:11:58
I'd recommend his scores for Summer in Feburary, Mully, Gamba, Bitter Harvest and Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. All these are leagues better than his current output imo, I'd put Mully and Summer in Feburary as my favourite scores of his.


BC2019-09-01 08:57:52
I'm on my first listen now and I'm pretty disappointed. The emotional/orchestral pieces like "Firefly","Memory" and "Losers Reunited" are really nice and work well, while the actually horror tracks are just a jumble of noise and sound.

I really would have preferred him to break with horror soundtrack tradition and do a fully orchestral score instead of using loud, jarring noises to amplify what I'm assuming are going to be jump scares. The latter is really lazy and it sucks because it's hard to find good horror scores these days.

I've still got a fair portion of the album left, so my opinion might change, but it seems like the whole score is going to be like this.


tilibro2019-09-02 00:48:15
Rule No. 1 of all modern horror movie scores: Always have loud banging percussion when there's a "scary" moment.


BC2019-09-02 01:55:13
@tilibro

Ugh, I know. Carpenter's score for Halloween last year was the first horror score since Evil Dead that I really, really liked.

I wrapped up my listen of this last night and aside from the horror tracks I really, really liked it. But my frustration with the horror tracks is made even worse because the orchestral tracks do an amazing job of conveying that creeping, unsettling feeling. "You Knew" was a great example of a mixture between the horror elements (that guitar riff was a BIG surprise and I wish it had been used more) and the orchestral. And tracks 28-36 were fantastic. THAT was what I was hoping for, those tracks proves that Ben is definitely capable of it.

I don't see any arrangers credited on imdb so I'm inclined to say yes he did. Remember, he also wrote all of Shazam by himself as well.

Very excited for this! I think BW did a great job with the first score, given the constraints horror music usually puts on composers. Hopefully he is able to keep the same balance of orchestral/processed sound design.
