So having seen the film I can say that this is tonally the most mature score of the series. The old themes all get their moment to shine, but surprisingly are used far less than the previous 2. There also seem to be some temped moments, with one scene using portions of “Battle of the Bewilderbeast” and so on. It will be interesting to see what is missing from the album.<br><br>In terms of new stuff, both “The Hidden World” cue and the “Fury Love Theme” are obviously the standouts. Especially in the way they develop throughout. And without spoiling anything, there are some beautiful choral moments in the last 15 minutes. As for the villain material, there wasn’t really anything distinctive that I picked up, which might change with a few listens.As everyone has said for the billionth time, NO. These are all unofficial fan-made edits or rips.Is this cd of the complete score available for purchase somewhere?I loved it a lot like you and was searching and searching with no result for a long time.... and know what? Did not forget about it UNTIL NOW!!! It was in a change room at my fitness studio when I heard a very faint sound and was tunderstruck!!! The melody I was looking for for so long!!! And Shazam helped me out: it is a song from the christians from 1995 or so, called: Words! You‘re welcome :-)))and tracklist<br><br>Pictures. Visit the official movie website for more information.<br><br>Here’s the album track list:<br><br><br> <br>1. Serenity<br>2. The Beast<br>3. Suit<br>4. Karen<br>5. Baker Dill<br>6. Patrick<br>7. Memory<br>8. Deliver Me From Temptation<br>9. He Wants Justice<br>10. Girl at the Bridge<br>11. I Am the Rules<br>12. Plymouth Island<br>13. I Remember You<br>14. Catch That Fish<br>15. How We See It<br>16. Creator<br>17. Justice<br>18. Alternate Reality<br>19. It’s Dad<br><br>
Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.<br><br>On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack
In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modern
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.

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

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....
