Booklet info: https ://imgur.com/a /D2vY6Fmwhere did you get that ?This is my most anticipated score of 2019. The two previous ones were great and I hope this one is even better.<br><br>Cannot wait!Hey guys where can i download the complete soundtrack ?That's a great news!
Alita ia going to be release by Milan RecordsCan't freaking wait for this. The series ends with a bang!Coming soon !So this is basically a Mazzaro scoreIt's great but sadly it's only used in the end credits :-(<br>I suspect it might have been an alternate version of the opening scene.<br><br>Anyway the rest of the score is absolutely stunning, a good balance between heavy action and themes (and incredible choir). A new high in JXL's career, let's hope the OST release does it justice.
get this a cd-release too<br>Don't forget the pointless changes like the opening title music for AUE being replaced with an E Major version of The Shire and Gandalf's Farewells for some reason. Or temp tracking earlier pieces of the film in for later scenes.Tom just released "London Suite in C Major" on his YouTube channel, and I am really loving it. He's usually hit-or-miss for me, but this cue in particular really intrigues me. Sounds like he merged the orchestral sections of Fury Road with the flighty ballads of Hollywood Golden Age music.CD Release?Will there be a Blu-ray release for this as well. I had heard that the Hollywood in Vienna award show that is essentially the same set would get a Blu-ray release.
Especially in the first one, there's a ton of LOTR themes needledropped even though Shore wrote original material for those exact scenes that you can hear on the album, and also there are themes used in scenes where they don't belong at all. Oh and the main theme of the first one and a couple of the secondary ones completely disappear from the second and third moviesLot of Mazzaro credits hereJackson use more LOTR music than the original music created for the movie.<br><br>Altough, Watertower releases respect the material written by Shore (as he wanted)Skipped the Hobbit films. How so was the music mistreated in those?Peej only produced this film, didn't direct it, and also I sorta think he and Howard Shore don't have the warmest of relationships considering the King Kong firing and then the way the music was mistreated in the Hobbit films.

Zanelli had two cues from TLS on his website : The Final Charge & Ninja Attack.
A while ago, Blake Neely had a cue called "Sake" on his website and, if I remember correctly, it was the beginning of OST track 3.

As always, we don't know what means those credits, did Zanelli & Neely made those cues all by themselves or did they helped Hans finishing the job ?
For exemple, Trevor Morris had a cue of TLS on his website, and he explained that this cue was all Hans, but he was asked to add some brass in the background... It's far from a "composing task" !

@Prott: Thanks for the info. I think I checked there, but it was a long time ago and I didn't know if anyone knew different. And I thought the same thing, that the part that is nearly identical to Pearl Harbor would have been collaborated with Geoff Zanelli. Oh well.

@Anonymous: I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you here. I love that part because while it sounds nearly identical it fits perfectly within the scope of the overall score and does not detract from the listening experience a bit. I agree that the album is perfect, but it's even more perfect with the full, film-version of the final charge.

was listening to the final charge today - what a horrible pearl harbor lift. It's almost identical to War in a certain section. Come on Geoff a bit of creativity please! Glad it wasn't on the album, it would ruin it as the album is such a perfect listen . . .

Hyrbrid, any information on this soundtrack? Which "Additional Composers" helped out on each track. Thanks.

Prott reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-12 00:00:00
According to the ASCAP, Hans wrote all the cues by himself (and I thought that - for example - Final Charge was composed by Geoff Zanelli ... at least that Pearl Harborish "charge-part" :) ).

How do I go on about asking permission to use Hans Zimmer's music for a commercial I would like to make for my book? My book is on Amazon.com and is titled, "Afghanistan through an Infantryman's Eyes" . I am a prior Combat Veteran who has served in the United States Army for 6 years as an Airborne Infantryman. I went to Afghanistan for one year and I saw what I believe is God in the love I experienced from the Afghan people, and the beauty I felt in their land. The context of my book focuses on a soldier (Myself) looking for the truth in life--well knowing that truth can be created in the hearts and minds of people, by people. The music from Hans Zimmer fits my epic journey through life as I am in search for God. May I please use Hans Zimmer's music for my commercial for my book? Thankyou.

I have been a Hans Zimmer fan for a long time but his soundtrack for The Last Samurai is, in my opinion, his greatest work ever. It is, in some respects, more beautiful and meaningful to me than the actual movie. At first when I heard the music during the film I thought "what kind of genius was able to conjure up something so heavenly?" Then I saw the credits and said "Oh. Right, of course."

This score has to be one of the most beautiful, peaceful pieces of music I've heard in a long time. I don't know where I've been not to have know who Hans Zimmerman was before, but I am definitely a fan now. Amazing music!
