The comment by Jack Afrogarrix doesn't make sense. Spenser Confidential and Bloodshot are the ONLY Jablonsky soundtracks in 2020 so far. "My two favourite Jablonsky soundtracks of 2020" would only make sense, if there would be already more released than these two by Jablonsky in 2020.Do you know where can i find the song death of shrike???@Jack Afrogarrix	<br><br>Edmund is being positive. He's finding humor in the world's current situation instead of being negative, sensitive, and depressed about it. We're all trying to stay positive na enjoy film scores right now. <br><br>Just because Edmund is doing it in a way you don't like doesn't mean he's being negative. Lighten up guys, it was a joke.I agree with MrZimmerFan, the comment that edmund did was too much and i did comment about the composer's film score in 2020. I didn't say it like that. Look i just an young guy who likes soundtracks of films very much and i know there is an pandemic in the world and i trying to be positive while this is happening and i hear film music because i like to hear music of every film composers.Edmund, that comment is bit too much, don't you think?

Is Balfe doing Bond ?


Mr.Unbreakable2019-12-22 00:00:55
Nope,The composer is Dan Romer (Maniac).

Mr.Unbreakable reply Replies: 1 || 2019-12-21 02:07:54
Something has failed with the complete score, knowing what Balfe is capable of doing by arranger good themes, I don't quite understand why the score stands out so little.


mpolonest123 2019-12-21 02:49:10
Having seen the first few episodes I was surprised at how “in the background” the music really was. Especially compared to the excellent concept album released earlier.

I took a spin with the new album, there are still some standout tracks but I do feel like a good chunk has that underscore feeling to it.

Loving the complete score for His Dark Materials.Silver Guillotone, Armored Claws and Polar Adventure are the best cues of the album.This soundtrack and 6 Underground have made Christmas !

Balfe reply Replies: 2 || 2019-12-20 13:55:40
I am willing to give Balfe the benefit - the concept album is great and there are good points in the show - but the actual score is frigging terrible. Like a cheap youtube approximation of Hans Zimmer. What the fuck is this?


Drone2019-12-20 14:01:49
So, either Balfe does all the great music, and the drones get on it and make it sound synthetic and pointless, or Balfe likes the pointless......Who composed the His Dark Material Anthology? Who composed the score for the BBC show? And what the fuck happened in between? The themes are the same but the performance is totally different and the theme development is pitiful. So is it the case that Balfe did a 50 minute concept album with an actual orchestra that some interns put to picture, cos this is a massive disappointment?

Yeah, the actual score is actually pretty bad. Totally synthy, or at least cheap two-band orchestra, HZ-trailer muzak from the early 2000s. What happened here - massive disappointment.

maholen reply Replies: 0 || 2019-12-19 10:36:10
You don't have to agree with me. But it is my attitude towards the music of Lorne Balfe and as I mentioned. Not everything is bad, but not everything is really good either. His scores are uninteresting after listening to them a third time at the latest. Precisely because everything sounds familiar. He was a good composer for additional music for various Hans Zimmer scores. And yes, he was also one of the additional composers for the first two parts of Transformers. Not all Remote Control composers are suitable for being the main composer. I also don't want to hear music from the same people all the time. That's why I'm open to film music. I've been listening to film music for almost 30 years! So I know what I'm talking about. Of course you cannot know everything. But I don't want to know everything either. In my opinion, Lorne Balfe should take a slightly more careful look at his work and not deliver one score after the next. That's why his music is so monotonous. Rarely do you experience surprises and unfortunately there are not really many in 6 undergrounds. The drums on "Tons of Blood" don't sound bad, but it's better that way. It reminds me of the gaming soundtrack by Need for Speed &#8203;&#8203;- The Run by Brian Tyler. There are great drums in there. So don't take it personally, just accept it.

This is Balfe’s best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we don’t get to hear much I think.
It’s been interesting reading posts about Balfe doing Bond.Has he confirmed yet if he is ?


NotSoAnonymous2019-11-13 17:32:06
Well, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.


Anonymous2019-11-13 22:36:22
lol no he’s not


HunterTech2019-11-14 01:37:02
The report about Romer leaving wasn't even confirmed, so I think it's just people wanting the expected to happen at this point.


;)2019-11-14 18:34:27
Neither Romer or Balfe are scoring Bond 25


NotSoAnonymous2019-11-15 17:36:12
Well, unless you have a source, or can point to a credible publication reporting Romer is not scoring it, I think it is safe to assume (for now) that the composer announced and still listed on the official website as the composer for the film is in-fact the composer for the film..

He wouldn't be my personal choice for the job, but I am not going to ignorantly pretend that he isn't currently the hired composer.


;)2019-11-15 21:20:21
Ok.


AlitaFan2019-12-17 21:57:48
I heard Hans Zimmer is scoring Bond 25 :)


Miralsice2019-12-17 22:05:09
Just rumors, nothing else :)

Might want to start believing those “rumors” lol.


HunterTech2019-12-19 00:26:25
With the amount of projects Zimmer has for 2020 already, there's a lot time he'd have to squeeze in if he needed to get job done by April. Balfe at least looks to be done with his current slate of upcoming movies, so he has a higher chance.


JD2019-12-19 01:40:21
What is your source?


HunterTech2019-12-19 09:21:03
Well that's what I want to ask the others, since Zimmer's 2020 line up has definitely been confirmed (WW84, Dune, Top Gun 2, Spongebob 3 (as of now)). With Balfe, Military Wives had its TIFF screening back in September, and Bad Boys For Life is just next month. So that gives him barely enough time to squeeze in, if he were to be hired.

“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.

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.

Okay, so I'm not the biggest Balfe fan, but when he does it right, I have to recognize it.

And this is a really good example of the best he can achieve. Tracks like the main theme, The Alethiometer, The Strength of Gyptians or A Plea To Fate show how great he can be, and makes me wonder why he would not use this style more often in his scores.

Anyway, I cannot wait to hear how he develops and uses the themes when the score album is released!

I fully agree. 2019 has been a bit disappointing musically, and I have the impression this score finally shakes things up a bit! Possibly a shot at my favourite of the year. Looking forward to the rest of the show & the music!


superultramegaa2019-11-06 03:44:31
Damn. After skimming the album, you might be right about this being a great product from Balfe. Jesus, woodwinds, beautiful string and choral writing, melody, and an overall creative sound pallet. The only other score of his that gets close to this quality IMO is Genius Season 2.

There are a few moments where the electronics sound ugly and overbearing, but they're thankfully pretty sparse.

I fully agree that we need more of this Lorne style!

Ro reply Replies: 0 || 2019-11-05 17:22:15
Alethiometer is a peculiar track and my favorite cue of the album.

It starts off with a Piano motif that is not awfully different from James Newton Howard's central theme for Signs. From there it briefly touches upon the Watergate Piano chord from Frost/Nixon. There are also times when I am almost ready to hear something from "Da Vinci Code" though it doesn't fully materialize.

The orchestral parts have hints of "Sky Ferry" from the Golden Compass by Alexandre Desplat too. I am also hearing a faint reference to the chorus melody of "Arriving At Atoll" from Waterworld.

What a journey!

I have to admit I totally eat all my negative words about Balfe. This is a fantastic and innovative score, full of great melodies, full orchestrations, vocal work, and innovative instrumentation. Clearly, he has spent a lot of time developing this. A clear sense of thematic purpose and melody!
