Jackman has always been my favorite of his "generation" of RC composers (in which I also include Balfe, Djawadi, ÷rvarsson, Margeson and Streitenfeld - the ones who broke out about a decade ago). I think he's the best orchestral writer other than Powell and I always appreciate the clean, organic sound of his scores - like with Powell's scores, Jackman's orchestra always sounds real and clearly distinct from the electronics, unlike Balfe and Zimmer himself who use samples a lot more and blur things in the middle. That's true even of scores of his I don't like, such as Winter Soldier.<br><br>I do wish he'd stop stripping the electronics off of tracks for his album releases though. That seems like a strange way to address the criticisms he got for Winter Soldier - kind of missing the point.Any plans for a concert in Denmark (Boxen, Herning) ?I like this score!!!<br><br>Henry is very good in my opinion. I always liked his scores even when others didn't.<br><br>And I'm really excited for Jumanji: The Next Level!!!Neither Romer or Balfe are scoring Bond 25I want to say that test screening version of Ghost in the Shell deleted one geisha character who was under orders of Cutter to follow the Major  and in the original third act, she fought Aramaki when he stormed into Cutter's Holo room after killing his guards. Aramaki survives and the scene continues as shown. Because of the poor reception of what I call "The Philosophical Cut", the geisha character was removed and there were quick reshoots of all of  the conversations between Cutter and Aramaki minus the geisha character involvement.
The report about Romer leaving wasn't even confirmed, so I think it's just people wanting the expected to happen at this point.lol no heís notLast week, the IMDb page said Joseph Trapanese is scoring it and next week some other composer will probably be listed there. Amazing that some people still think of IMDb as a reliable source for this kind of info.More Cannons!, 2:14 - Jack Sparrow theme from PotC?Ramin Djawadi will compose The Eternals
Well, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.This is Balfeís best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we donít get to hear much I think.<br>Itís been interesting reading posts about Balfe doing Bond.Has he confirmed yet if he is ?Why would I ever do that ?<br><br><br>Tracklist is the real one... -_-New trailer for the Sonic movie.<br>https://youtu.be/szby7ZHLnkAIs there any chance of a concert in London?
i mean, the page, would you update with the tracklist posted years ago?What.Un artiste qui a une force mais d'une puissance ! Bravo depuis la France !@Hybrid would you update the complete score with the new tracklist? Thankswhat happened here?. Track 4 Bunker Bust and Track 14 River mission are the exact same track. The game itself has a couple of good themes that didn't make it onto the album.

This score shows how important a composer is who knows how to work with a certain genre. Jablonsky knows how to compose a memorable heroic theme and manipulate it to fit an emotion, and write decent choir and even impressive brass at times. Despite relying on ostinatos and rhythm, he still does his best to make a track feel full and dynamic.

Djawadi's Gears 4 style meanwhile, involves writing a bunch of ostinato loops and motifs, and people hail it as "thematically impressive" despite none of it sounding particularly memorable, or even relevant. He mostly just sticks with bare-sounding percussion and string ostinatos, with the occasional low brass punch, leaving the action and the "themes" feeling empty and cliched.

Though to give credit, at least in this game he's attempting to create actual themes as opposed to motifs, and they generally have a fuller sound. However his action music is still completely empty and dull feeling, with the same problems as his gears 4 sound (except slightly more low horns and electronics).

Gears scores haven't really been interesting since Gears 2... I never revisited Gears 3 & Judgement was terrible...

Ramin's best game is Medal of Honor. I have yet to listen to Gears 5...


Mr.Unbreakable2019-09-07 16:54:19
I think Lorne has the right sound for Gears


johny5552019-09-07 19:59:46
have you listened to the track "The Storm" from GoW4? Probably my most favorite from GoW 4 and 5


Shince Thomas 2019-09-08 19:29:40
What? Tracks such as Kaits theme and Bittersweet victory alone brings a lot of depth to Gears 5.True,Gears of War 4 Soundtack had its issues, but with Gears 5 Djawadi has redeemed for his previous outing's weakness.

Gears of War 4 was a big dissappointing score (honestly, i still prefer Gears 2 and 3), but this one is a little better, a improvement from the last score.

That's dosen't mean the score is terrific. It's entertaining, but still far from Gears 2 and 3


Mr.Unbreakable2019-09-08 22:20:56
Both Gears 4 and 5 are complete disappointments, knowing what Ramin is capable of, a real pity.

I actually really liked it. Just listened to it on the train home from work. Really enjoyed Kait's theme and the action cues, as well as the dark tinge to the tracks.

Is it his best? Not at all. And the album has the misfortune of being released not too long after Ramin's phenomenal GoT score which doesn't help things. But as far as a regular score goes, I've heard a LOT worse.

Great soundtrack. Really fits the game well. Just finished the game.

One of the most bombastic and epic shooter campaigns I played in the last decade.

Really great Soundtack, where Gears of war 4 focused on action cues, this Gears 5 soundtrack focuses on emotional pieces as well.
