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>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!

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.


Eddard Stark2016-11-08 22:42:17
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!

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.

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
