Yeah seriously, he hasn’t done much in a year plus. He’s definitely taken some time off for touring and other things, which may be a great thing for his inspiration... who knows, but I’m guessing the time off has let his brain take a break and maybe he has a ton of new ideas for the big 3 (WW:84, Dark Phoenix, Lion King) coming up in the next year and a half. <br><br>Or maybe I’m just hopeful/wishful thinking lol.Plus, Blue Planet II came out last year. That score is as far from Widows as possible.I'm not sure, but I think this site is not the right place to ask for copyright, since it is "almost official". But, here you can find the label of every officially released album you want, so you can ask the company labeled.That collaboration was barely a year ago. This is literally Zimmer's first significant score since then. You can't deduce a pattern from two data points.IMDb says that Lorne is one of the 3 composers of Battlefield V. I am confused.... :D
Well, if you check what Hans Zimmer did recently there wasn't much material for him to write a good theme too. A lot of it was types of movies that were synth type music. I think The Dark Phoenix and Wonder Woman (apart from his amazing theme for her already) will have some good typical Hans Zimmer feel to it which I am excited for.For the first time of my life but with sound experience, I assist on that one too.  A very good job from all that team.<br>I only was surprised to not see Hans Zimmer itself and quickly understood that it was "the world of..." and not HZ live ! No regret for my first even if I'm a bit frustrated and regret my mistake ;o)<br>Do you have a tip for me to do it again and avoid that mistake again? When you purchase a ticket, it's hard, you have sometimes to go deeper to see that, finally, he's not gonna be there!<br>Have a great day U all.<br>I wishCool Hybrid! Been at the concert in Oberhausen last Saturday. A lot better then expected to be honest. Pedro's Oogway's Ascend was very good, Pedro outdid himself there (at the 2nd Zimmer concerts I thought he wasnt that great compared to Richard).<br><br>Yeah! The hell are the other comments about though? The Last Stand is miles ahead of X2. You weren't even saying TLS was the best X-men score, you were just saying it's Powell's best score. Man people are dumb
Hi, I want to add some seconds of 8 track for the background of my small documentary about races, my first one, is it possibile to ask for copyright? Should I write to some email addresses?<br>I'm kind of the same way, even on a personal level. The synth and power anthems, even from the Media Ventures era, is just kind of getting old to me. The incessant momentum, the lack of thematic progression, it all wears on you eventually.I think you really nailed how I feel about this score. I don’t personally mind the tense electronic elements (this is music that I can enjoy on its own level) but I do feel let down by the lack of a theme or any solid motif to anchor the music. Especially in the emotional cues.<br><br>The one thing that I keep coming back to is how this sounds so much like something Johann Johansson would have written. I actually really like his music style, but it is pretty jarring to see Zimmer do minimalism on this level. No objections here, but I can’t wait to get some exciting Zimmer music again.Not for nothing but it's kinda odd how Zimmer has been declining ever since, IMO, his collaboration with Wallfisch on Blade Runner 2049.... <br><br>Honestly, I've been straying towards John Carpenter's Halloween 2018 and horror synth ever since....is Zimmer retiring or something? Because I'm finding myself not into him so much, anymore.I honestly wasn't expecting much from this film on a musical level, but some tracks that are available are OK to listen to. McQueen has never been a proponent of larger-scale thematic music in his scores, he seems to be a mood-inspired person, and Zimmer can do that very, very well. <br><br>Coming back to the music, Zimmer seems to have embraced his textural roots. 2018 has been all about texture really in the action films, i.e. Black Panther's percussion layers, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Widows. Thematically, there seems to be a solemn progression for Marcus that reappears in "My Son", that relies on familiar elements (i.e. drone strings layered on top of each other, lower bass accompaniment), and some of the action textures in "We Have A Job To Do" and "Perimeter Check" is a nice callback to the Media Ventures style of things. <br><br>I'm admittedly disappointed with the fact that there is nothing beyond residually, well-anchored momentum and tension to the score,and the album length is shocking. But it is what it is. I love the underlying, throbbing synth bass ripples, I've always had a soft spot for them. <br><br>Honestly, it's a one time listen for me. I'm more excited about his dual superhero bonanza return next year- Wonder Woman 1984 and X-Men Dark Phoenix. I'm definitely not expecting him to use John Ottman's brilliant theme for the latter, although I will definitely be impressed if by slight chance, he does. The "Money" is quite soothing in a melancholy way. "The Calm Before The Storm" uses some worthwhile sombre piano treading that I'm always a stickler for.
Come to Bratislava, Slovakia too.I wonder with all of the Easter eggs if Jackman will incorporate some character themes like possibly the Imperial March for Storm Troopers Or Disney themed for the Disney characters@Anonymous on the Blu-ray it should have surround sound. Just that it's out on iTunes in Australia already - which is how I got it - and iTunes bonus features are obviously only in stereo.<br><br>@Ahmad - the benefit here is really all the film version edits of the cues we already have on the album. And some of them are quite different from the album ones....<br><br>The tracklist I came up with for now for the iso score. Total runtime is 2:08:16.<br><br>A Storm Is Coming (Logos) / Julia / Good Evening, Mr. Hunt	4:51			<br>Self-Destruct	0:23			<br>Plutonium Trade / A Terrible Choice	6:14			<br>The Manifesto	1:46			<br>Fallout (Main Titles) / Your Mission (Part 1)	2:07			<br>Your Mission (Part 2)	2:21			<br>Free Fall (Part 1)	1:57			<br>Free Fall (Part 2)	2:14			<br>Grand Palais / Consequences Of Love	2:01			<br>Bathroom	6:12			<br>No Pain, No Gain (Outro) / As Ugly As They Come 	2:09			<br>I'll See You In My Dreams / Widow Bar	2:33			<br>The White Widow / Should You Choose To Accept...	5:38			<br>Busy Day Tomorrow	0:41			<br>Framing Ethan / The Exchange	6:37			<br>Escape Through Paris	6:11			<br>Steps Ahead	1:11			<br>Je Suis Désolé	1:04			<br>Unfinished Business	0:34			<br>Did You Ever Choose Not To?	1:51			<br>You're Mine Now	0:30			<br>We Are Never Free	4:52			<br>Widow In London	1:45				<br>Trapped	3:14				<br>The Mission Is Terminated	2:02			<br>No Hard Feelings / The Exhortation	6:46			<br>Stairs & Rooftops	6:25			<br>Kashmir	7:10				<br>Julia (Reprise) / Fate Whispers To The Warrior	5:06			<br>And The Warrior Whispers Back	8:20			<br>I Am The Storm (Part 1)	4:12			<br>I Am The Storm (Part 2)	1:21			<br>Scalpel & Hammer	3:47			<br>Cutting On One	1:25			<br>The Last Resort 1:48			<br>There's No Reason To Be Sorry / Mission: Accomplished (Curtain Call)	4:51	<br>End Credits	6:28I wonder what the quality on the disc will be like but definitely not expecting lossless. Three commentaries and the isolated score and language tracks. That's a lot and the movie is not short lol. <br><br>In general, I don't think we're missing much to begin with (but it's really cool and should be done more often). There's a cool bit where the "Syndicate" theme was used I think in the film version of "Escape Through Paris" and the album version doesn't have that bit.ur kidding. is it like the last jedi? why cant it be in surround sound

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!!!!!!!!!!

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....
