More than Zimmer?I honestly commend what Steve Jablonsky composed for the 2nd movie but I really have to say that Brian Tyler's theme was more heroic for me and I'm a big fan of orchestral music that's why I wanted to hear Tyler's Ninja turtles theme again.Maul’s Call, Empire Recruitment, End Credits Suite, etc. <br><br>This release looks amazing! :Othis is awesome!!!!Pemberton is probably the most obvious choice right now. I would definitely love to see Pemberton score this one
Yep, I received the news too.<br>Antwerp Sportpaleis is now scheduled on 23rd February 2022, a Wednesday !<br>Tour postponed to 2022 :'(Asides, Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, dosen't sound like the two Jumanji written by Jackman, by anymeans, and in prefer those two scores over his Uncharted material, altough i like both.If you want a Silvestrian-type of action... Edmonson's action writting in the three Uncharted are terrific, specially Among the Thieves and Drake's Deception.i think Uncharted 4 and 2 have the best score. U2 is amazing in all regards but I hope Henry does the movie cause he's better at writing action music
If is Paramount, expect a digital release, but this people is certainly very difficult to guess...A exclusive clip from the film where some of Zimmer's score can be heard   https://youtu.be/EucuM3EuUJA?t=238<br><br>Loving the short synth part at the very startIt sounds a JP theme. But also sounds like HZ did arrangements of it. The beginning of "shifu's end" kind of sounds like one.  The HZ/Jackman cues for the "splits" and "battle for the scroll" which use it are good, fun cues - but they're kind of awkward and stop/start compared to JP's smoother, more confident arrangements. And they notably don't use the whole theme only fragmented bits where as the JP/Smith cues "prison", "the bridge", "shifu's end" make use of the entire theme and sound more comfortable with the frenetic orchestra material. Just my opinion though.<br>Jungleland is getting released in cinemas and on streaming Nov. 6 and 10 respectively. I hope Lorne's score gets a release alongside it, as the film sounds like it has some good scoring potential.Well, the two scores by Jackman are good, neither as good as Edmonson's previous work in the franchise, if Naughty Dog have to choose a composer, Edmonson is my choice.<br><br>As for comparations with Tom's Tomb Raider, remember, this franchise is a more classical adventure than a survival action.
If he's one of Jackman's best,I hope naughty dog &#8203;&#8203;will hire him again. I just hope that the film does not present a score as loose as Tom's tomb raidervery excited!!!<br>@hybrid theme by hans and the rest david? :PThe soundtrack to Uncharted 4 in my opinion is one of the best Henry has done along with first class. I hope and pray he does the movie although I have no hope for that film. But unfortunately the director likes to work with Ludwig so I don’t think Henry will do it. But I pray he doesMilan Records is going to release it, they said it in his Twitter.But Rupert's Scores are always good!

After watching the movie and listening to the score, I feel that the music has a lot of potential but it's wasted in a lot of moments.

I really like the new main theme (the melody from the Loyal Brave True song), and I think Harry did a great jobadapting the melody into lots of different arrangements. I really like the softer ones like at the beginning of Ancestors or the one in Lesson of the Phoenix. And I think he did great adapting the some of original songs into the score to great effect, specially with the Reflection theme at the beginning of Mulan Rides Into Battle or in Four Ounces...

But I think that, apart from the softer renditions of the new main theme, and the arranging of the classic songs, the score does not really maintain your interest, with no secondary thematic material that stands out on first listen, with no noticeable nods to Goldsmith score (not even his marvelous main theme), and the action tracks usually fall into generic territory.

Overall, is a nice score for some parts, but feels like it could have been much more with more secondary themes and with some nods to Goldsmith's score.

Just some random thoughts

Just finished to listen to the CD. I really enjoy the score !


MrZimmerFan2020-09-02 22:12:43
Is CD release?

I'm surprised


Iamtommie442020-09-02 22:17:22
How did you listen to something that is not released for 2 more days


Knight2020-09-02 22:28:51
The CD was available on Amazon for awhile


MrZimmerFan2020-09-02 23:26:44
But for 4th September.


Anonymous2020-09-03 06:28:50
With the ever-increasing popularity of digital distributions and streaming services, I never thought we'd go back to the days when someone could muse and blabber about obtaining advanced copies.

But then, I never thought Vinyl would make a return either, and here we are.

Forecasting is definitely not my forte.


Jordan2020-09-03 07:47:41
Yes, the CD is planned to be released on September the 4th, but was already available at the CD store I went yesterday.

I'm very happy to have it released on CD, regarding the situation of the movie...

Sounds fantastic!


MrZimmerFan2020-09-03 15:14:07
Even there is a nod to the original Jerry Goldsmith's score!


Brent2020-09-04 06:52:49
I’m really enjoying this! There are definitely parts (especially certain sounds) that are lifted directly from Prince of Persia, but the score overall is great. :)


mpolonest123 2020-09-04 14:50:27
Ok this is bothering me but does anyone else hear Queen Atlanna’s theme from Aquaman in the main tune here?


Macejko2020-09-04 15:13:55
Brent: That's... discouraging. PoP was overall pretty meh. Also the fact that HGW's first fantasy adventure score in 10 years sounds like the one he made a decade ago doesn't bode well. Oh well. Will listen today.


Brent2020-09-04 19:36:14
Macejko: I wouldn’t let that deter you. Although the PoP moments take you out of the experience a bit, the score is really quite lovely. Also, the “Prince of Persia” and “Raid On Alamut” cues are some of HGW’s best. :)


Macejko2020-09-04 19:47:17
It's funny you mentioned "Raid on Alamut", because that's just about the only cue I revisit from time to time. Btw., I listened to a couple of cues already, it IS indeed good. "The Desert Garrison" is balls-to-the-wall.


MrZimmerFan2020-09-04 20:53:19
Aside for the sounds of PoP (not a problem, HGW uses the same sounds in every action movie), Mulan is a solid effort by him, great dramatic/ethnic stuff and homage to the original Jerry Goldsmith score (if you listen closely), and cool action moments, if the score isn't as good as Kingdom of Heaven or Sinbad, is truly recommend.


Mephariel2020-09-05 19:35:51
Quite disappointed with this score. Everything felt low energy and generic. The best parts are reusing the instrumental versions of the songs.


Hybrid Soldier2020-09-06 00:34:40
100 % the Paycheck thing... lol


Anonymous2020-09-07 06:42:26
I see people are talking about several references from the composer's other works in this one - even a theme from John Powell's score for Paycheck.

Do you think this movie was temped with those?

JR reply Replies: 1 || 2020-09-04 00:19:17
Paycheck, John Powell (But on a good Asian Tone way) &#128522;


jjstarA1132020-09-04 15:49:54
I was also thinking of Paycheck!

According to the end credits of the movie, Halli Cauthery arranged Honor to Us All.

New clip with Harry Gregson-Williams' music, and sounds awesome, at least this 55 seconds.

Hi there,

I was wondering, why can we not listen to samples yet? I would want to buy the album, but I want to know if it's any good so I would love to listen to samples first. Does anybody know where I can do that?


MrZimmerFan2020-08-31 13:41:15
Because the score gets released at the same day as the movie, perhaps?

Anonymous reply Replies: 2 || 2020-08-17 17:31:42
Can someone please elaborate on Richard Harvey's role as a "Musical Director" for this particular project? I haven't seen this type of credit for a score album before - particularly not for a someone other than the lead composer. I mean, isn't it part of the job description for the lead composer to lay out the direction of the music?


Miralsice2020-08-17 23:20:47
Maybe he helps Harry with traditional aspects of the score? As far as I know Harvey write some works wich includes chinese musical instruments and traditions.

Also he and John Williams (guitarist, not composer) had done a World Tours concerts where they'd played different music with a lot different traditions including Chinese and African. So it could be that Harry asked Harvey for help with traditional chinese music in "Mulan" and Richard used his knowledge in it to find requied musical pieces wich was later ( with the endorsement of Harry and dirrector of the movie) included in movie's score.


Hybrid Soldier2020-08-17 23:54:10
Yeah,

Richard is the Asian instruments guru. I'd describe that a super music producer though, sort of organizing things, giving advice, playing instruments and even doing some orchestrations/arranging/writing.

Richard was around on The Forbidden Kingdom too. And remember that a very long time ago, HGW & RGW were Richard assistants ! :)

One of my most anticipated scores this year. Hope it can come close to Jerry Goldsmith's masterpiece.


MrZimmerFan2020-08-16 20:22:10
I will not expect such a thing, but i expect a good score by HGW. :D


Iamtommie442020-08-16 22:23:03
I'm soo excited for this!!! Hope the song meldoes are in here. If 'Training The Men' contains an orchestral arrangement of I'll Make A Man Out Of You I will be soo happy!! That will be amazing!!
