This is a seriously good score....but the temptracking is rather problematic. The love theme is directly from Braveheart, a lot of the action in No Going Back is Mount Doom from LOTR etc....but still better than some of that synth nonsense peddled by the Junkmeister elsewhere.Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through ParisDoes anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)
First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.Where can we listen this score ?It's a good score, nice blend between orchestra and synths.<br><br>But, i think WW is more interesting score
I'm listening right now, one of the best works by Tom, by far.<br><br>Beautiful choir, great action tracks (even there is a great renditions of the themes, Windflower with that version of Shrike's theme is gorgeous) and multiples themes.I'm guessing CONFESSIONS & REGRETS is Tom Sells out his Clone?I have done this for... so many things ! :PThanks so much!01 - THE ISLAND AWAITS YOU => 1M1 MAIN TITLES + 1M2 NIGHTMARE #1<br>02 - WHERE DO THESE TUBES GO? => 1M2 MISSING A SHOE + 4M24 ROUTE 39<br>03 - SECTOR 6 => 4M19C CENSOR CHASE PT 3 + 4M19D THE OUTSIDE WORLD<br>04 - STARKWEATHER => NOT IN MIXES (Album idea or suite idea ?) + 6M33H MVC PT 6 THE BIG R<br>05 - AGNATE UKULELES => 2M10 AGNATE UKULELES + 2M10B UKULELES 2 - ELECTRIC B<br>06 - YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PURPOSE IN LIFE => 3M14A RELEASING THE MOTH + 3M14B LIMA'S DEMISE<br>07 - MASS VEHICULAR CARNAGE => 1MD HEALTH CLUB (ALBUM SONG VERSION)<br>08 - RENOVATIO => 5M32B TRACKING THE CLONES<br>09 - I'M NOT READY TO DIE => 3M15 STARKWEATHER'S DEMISE (EDITED)<br>10 - THIS TONGUE THING'S AMAZING => 7M43 THIS TONGUE THING'S AMAZING + 6M38 CONFESSIONS & REGRETS<br>11 - MASS WINNINGS => 7M44 MASS WINNINGS + 7M45 RETURN TO INSTITUTE + 7M45 RETURN TO INSTITURE PT 2<br>12 - THE CRAZIEST MESS I'VE EVER SEEN => 3M16-17 A PRODUCT ON THE LOOSE + 3M18A CENSOR CHASE PT 1<br>13 - SEND IN THE CLONES => 5M29 TRAIN STATION CHASE + 5M31-32 IN LA - CALVIN KLEIN<br>14 - MY NAME IS LINCOLN => 8M52 THE END OF MERRICK<br><br>;)
Hybrid is it possible that you could do a crossreference of what cues here = the ones on album like you did for King Arthur and Transformers 4?And maybe there's too much synth work in both cause... Andrew K worked on both ?! lolMothersbaugh isn't the only person out there to use 80s synth, you know. You are after all, on the website named after perhaps the greatest pioneer of it in terms of film music. <br><br>Also, there is nothing about this film that screams "Thor Ragnarok" ripoff. If anything, the appropriate place to compare is Black Panther- however, as Aquaman and his mythology predates Black Panther by several years, that argument is rendered moot.<br><br> Sure, we have regal similarities (king, set in kingdom, evil half brother) but it literally ends there. The story is quite basic, but nowhere like Ragnarok in its entirety. Ragnarok was about two brothers putting aside their differences to stop their evil sister from unleashing Ragnarok itself, whilst Aquaman is about Arthur Curry being forced to reconnect with his Atlantean heritage, and it's explicitly a quest for him to clear Atlantis from a corrupt, purist ruler who wants to hurt the surface world because of how the humans have been mistreating the seas. Aquaman is very much its own thing, and it doesn't need any such comparisons. And I bet, it will stomp past Ragnarok at the box office overall. <br><br>the main theme is quite similar to Jackman's Kingsman ( the first three note)<br><br>andd..<br><br>I assume it is the studio's mandate for RGW to go (and adapt..or imitate?) Mothersbaugh's Ragnarok with its 80s synth. <br><br>----<br><br>Having seen the movie, i understand why RGW chose the 80s style, because basically, Aquaman is Thor Ragnarok underwater. <br>Dont get me wrong, the visual spectacle is amazing and colorful ( in a good way), some of the cinematography is downright breathtaking,but i really did have a hardtime enjoying this movie in its fullness beacuse the blatant Ragnarok ripping-off here and there.., and dont get me started on the story...<br>Really, the visual did the heavy lifting in this movie ( and it succeeded in overcoming the weak storyline)Um, is there a freaking Pitbull remix of Africa on here? What the heck?

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.
