How to Train Your Dragon is one of his best. You are missing out. <br><br>But I may be the only person who thinks Face/Off is one of his best scores. I love that score more than nearly any John Powell scores.I'm agree thatThey are independent events, but I think they are working in conjunction with each other. I based this on the description on the Vienna website. Their program is called The World of Hans Zimmer and some of the arrangements will be written by Zimmer himself. That leads me to believe this year's gala is a bit different and is just a stop for Zimmer's tour.Probably not. The two are indepedent events.@Edmund<br><br>actually i wasn't interested in the Dragon scores...or Pan, for that matter. Xmen 3 wasn't too bad, but he still had that tight RCP score techniques...Yeah, I think he must have changed his methods since Hancock/Green Zone...Because I'm not interested in hsi work after that. Must be those pesky drums he doesnt use anymore?
Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :pPretty sure the reason HGW works with Washington so often is because Tony Scott worked with him so often... :pWait, Meta, you haven't liked Powell since Hancock? This despite putting out his career peak in the How to Train Your Dragon scores? I mean, if there's anything that proves he's got the chops for Star Wars style orchestral and thematic music, it's those two (and X-Men: The Last Stand, and Pan).Excellent score!  Reminds me of pieces of The Rock, BHD, Drop Zone, stuff from The Pacific.  Great job Andrew!  Nice themes!  Fun RCP stuff!Yes it was announced a while back, Harry returns !
I can confirm that he is working on it.I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!
Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.

If you listen to Escape from Embassy: this cue was used for many other movies:
Harry Gregson-Williams used it for Man on Fire and Wolverine;
Vangelis for Alexander;
Alberto Iglesias for The Constant Gardener.

And the second half of The Apartment is mother of Hans' Time from Inception xD

Hey.. no comments? This is the best Bourne Score!
Too bad the music piece under when he faces Wombosi and his child isnt uncluded...!
But a part from that, this is by far the best Score!


Mike2012-12-04 00:27:53
A great score indeed. Too bad the second and third films were so heavily temp tracked. And shame Powell didn't return for no. 4.


Anonymous2012-12-04 05:30:18
There's a detailed explanation on a John Powell fansite that explains that it wasn't temping per se, but a remix by Powell of old cues than cannot be emulated using the already available versions.


Mike2012-12-04 08:24:50
Oh really? Interesting. Even if it were temping, I still love the scores to all three.


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-04 17:31:05
Other than the unfortunate blip on JNH's career also known as The Bourne Legacy (so...boring...), I'd actually say that this is the worst Bourne score. The blend between orchestra, percussion and electronics is a lot more accomplished in Supremacy and Ultimatum, and the action cues have much better structure. Identity does, as Peter down there said, feel more like a box of demo ideas rather than a complete score. The best track is the Main Titles, and that cue was done better in "The Drop" from Supremacy.

As for the temping issue, well, I do have a complete version of Ultimatum that contains no temping and is almost two hours long, probably representing what Powell originally wrote for the film before the temp cues were inserted. So I wouldn't lay the blame at his feet!


Mike2012-12-04 18:00:35
Interesting again. And yes, this score did have a sort of "awkward" sound with all the different styles meshing together. Though I disagree about the Main Titles vs. The Drop. Not exactly sure why, but I like Main Titles better.


Ds2012-12-04 20:48:04
Agree with Edmund Meinerts on this, the 2nd & 3rd are much better. Especially the 2nd, it's more structured imo.


Mikel SiW (a fan from Spain)2012-12-05 12:43:57
I love this Musical Trilogy !

Yeah, obviously the Bourne soundtracks have plenty of missing cues. Sadly there is yet to see a bootleg of expanded score or even a release of the retail version of a complete score.

There was an expanded score of this one but it was fake and it had to much loud SFX to even be called an expanded score.

The best bourne score is The bourne ultimatum-masterpiece-and this one...well..i'm calling this cd ' box with ideas'-some of themes who will help powell in the future build two great action-scores
