Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.
@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cuesArtemisia Suite = History of Artemisia <br>Greek Action Suite = Marathon <br>Xerxes Rebirth Suite = From Man to God King<br>Greek Sacrifice Suite = ???<br>Artemisia’s Childhood Suite = Artemisia’s Childhood<br>Greek Attack Suite = Greeks on Attack<br>Queen Gorgo Suite = Queen Gorgo<br>Xerxes Thoughts Suite = Xerxes Thoughts<br>Greek History Suite = History of the Greeks<br>Greek Victory Suite = Greeks Are Winning<br><br>Hope this helps! :-)Hybrid can you tell us what album cues are the suites ?!well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be releasedCool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.
The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...Hey hybrid soldier! You mentioned on the ghost in the shell page about white fang so I came here! Can you give us a list of the cues as they appear in the film please? The Basil Poledouris cues and the Hans Zimmer cues pleaseI imagined it ... hopefully this time Max Ritcher does not give him a lollipop and refuses to launch his musicYes Unbreakable.
<br>
<br>Exactly like White Fang. Have Poledouris write a score, then HZ do another, then pick what you want from both.
<br>
<br>Ghost In The Shell was kinda different...In the credits of the movie, Max Ritcher appears as the Main Composer, meanwhile, Lorne appears as Additional Music
I find that it would be best to accredit both and launch the two soundtracks and all happy.Hybrid implies that Max Ritcher's score was rejected, and that Lorne made a new one and in the end, the best of both has been used.  I am right?ANd now apparently another guy is scoring it as well lmaoTechnically he's a little under 50% used so there's no obligation. But he wrote a whole score for it.but if Lorne has written 50% of the score you should have a credit like in Ghost in the shell

Wow.. simply one of the best i heard..I love the movie and love the soundtrack even more! It's very moving and it got that delicate, graceful feeling when you listen to it.. also "--A Small Measure of Peace"-- and "--Idyll's End"-- are some of my favs...

I only want to ask a question: If I heard correctly the Trailer music for Memoirs of A Geisha was taken from the Last Samurai. Can Anyone confirm this? This might be a big step in Zimmer's career because if it is in that way, John Williams listen's to Zimmer as well and loves this score as many people do. If that is so, as I always said, this album is one of the best Orchestral efforts by Zimmer and this may result in loving this score much much more. This score is 5***** of 5*****. Its ingredients are superb :) Great Melody, Haunting orchestrations and the use of the man shouting and the anvil sound in the action music makes it really dramatic. I also love very much the Taiko Drums and the other Oriental Instruments like the shakuhachi. A great job and I cannot recomend this score enough.

I have said it before and I will echo here again...The musical scores from the movie, are without doubt in complete semblance with the message of the movie... I keep listening to the scores... over and over again and I still feel the same emotions.....as if I am still watching the film.... This is what every composer should aspire to... The soundtrack.....is one with the film..each and every bow stroke and flute accent the actions and emotions on screen....... Take notes Horner You could learn a thing or two... From what I hear in this music Zimmer understood the spirit and meaning of the film the film is just that much better because of it... Thank Hans

Hans Zimmer makes a lovely job in this movie. This was the main reason that I started interesting in his work and heard more soundtracks of him.

The combination between authentic sounds and modern sounds was great and realy emotional.

If I had the privilige of ever making a movie...I would only worry about getting one man. I have so much to say, but I can summarize it all in a few words-- Genius at work.

The greatest composer known as Hans Zimmer is a true legend...his work has been acknowledged and loved all around the world. And yet again he comes up with a new score sounding so powerfull and dramatic that you instantly fall in love with it. If only I could know what goes on in his mind. To the best in the business....Hans Zimmer.

I discovered H Zimmers music not trough motion pictures,but through a metal band called NIGHTWISH from Finland.They use one of the "--songs"--from THE LAST SAMURAI as introduction tape to their live concerts.
And i asure you its powerful,their music really goes hand in hand with Hans Zimmers work.
Nightwish combine heavy metal with opera,using a female singer called Tarja Turunen.(she is a professional educated opera soprano).
I really hope that Toumas Holopainen (the brain behind Nightwish)get the chans to work with H Zimmer on their next album.
Youre great Hans,because of you i expanded my heavymetal-brain towards another style of powerful music.
Greetings from SWEDEN!!!!!!!!!!

incredible
i absolutely love it

but , "--the Final charge"-- track is totally useless, it sounds like "--War"-- from Pearl Harbor

Epology reply Replies: 0 || 2005-01-22 00:00:00
i really love this score, it was the first one in which Zimmer combined very quiet and emotionfull and the heroic and powerfull drumm sounds in one score or in one track. and another thing about Zimmer is that his scores are never the same, like Horner, who repeats including his "--Duell"-- sounds in every score he creates...--)

This Album is quite excellent album, the most important feature of this soundtrack is all tracks are harmonized with scenes...When I was watching the film, I can easily match the scenes with IDs after I listened the Soundtrack Album.I think it shows that this album is definitely succesful....
