I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.
Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronicsSo I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter egg

i don't and will never understand why people are getting upset & angry about other comments, opinions & users...
RELAX GUYS !!!
everybody can express its opinion without fearing to be reprove by someone.
"i don't like that" "well, i do, you bastard & if you don't, you're just a fucking punk" ...
this is so childish, so full of shit... the whole story in the "transformers" pages made me want to puke...
peace on earth, come on!!!

Here I am again. I was going thru my music tonight and realized half my music is from you. My only frustration is that I don't have the Last Samurai for piano. I see the music for orchesstra but not piano alone. Or am I just missing it

It's funny when I think about the movie Last Samurai, it is a movie that I like. But what do I like about it? Acting? Nah, unspectacular. The plot? Nah, makes me feel bad everytime I see it, it is so bitter? Well what then? It's the score! I really really like the score.

Excellent work as always, I am a huge admirer.

Hello Hans Zimmer! I heard Your music in The Last Samurai and I was tremendously happy that it was so well-written! It's good every measure. Powerful and tasteful! I write some classical music and rock/synh music myself as an amateur in Stockholm, and it's great to hear well written music such as yours! Cool!

This OST is the most amazing I've ever heard. I can't find words to describe its beauty. It's so passionate and gorgeus like no other score in the world. This is my favourite CD for years, I must cry every time I hear it. I'm from Hungary and my life isn't so good, but this CD give me inspiration to my short stories again and again. Gods (all of them) bless Hans Zimmer:D ! Thank you for being such a genius!

I have been looking for the sheet music to The Last Samurai The music is so powerfully moving it kills me each time I watch the movie that I can't go to my piano and play it! I was never able to play by ear but can read music and this is pure torcher for me.
