No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...This is great news.Maybe Balfe’s scores to Ghost in the Shell now can get released.<br>Over 6000 people have signed the petition for Ghost.yea, that should be enough for meIt's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming. <br>Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;) <br><br>Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :Pyes!yes!yes!<br>i can't wait!!!!!!!
And I can tell you Hans brought the matter to the very head of Disney Music... Everyone seems game to release it, just need to work out some technicalities...He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.<br><br>https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=mHmKZbUZiIA<br><br>"I did a film recently that got away, but we wrote 16 hours of music. We're actually fighting to get another CD released because the film didn't do anything, just to have it out there. Because you can't use again in something else, so it'd be nice to have it out there. So that it doesn't disappear into a rubbish bin".Life's Not Fair first part is similar > Tears of the Sun - Yekeleni Part 1 lolAny idea on the name of the song from the trailer?Honestly the biggest problem with this new version for me is the lack of new variants of the themes. They mostly just repeat verbatim Hans' original ideas with little to no innovation or changes made most of the time. <br><br>It also doesn't help that cues that did have wonderful variations such as "Nala Attacks", and "Nala & Simba" have been shortened to mostly cut them out. The worst cut being  for the ending to "Mufasa's Ghost" which originally peaked the emotion with that lovely variation of Simba/The One True King theme transitioning into the Pride Rock theme, all of which is absent now.
The comic con trailer for Season 3 looks excellent.<br><br>Really looking forward to next season & score.<br><br>I saw some early 1900 world. (One of the other parks?) Hope Djawadi does something cool with that.<br><br>Very excitedAfter Original Score<br><br>Tracklist:<br>1. Opening (1:33)<br>2. Class Start (0:51)<br>3. Tessa Meets Hardin (1:40)<br>4. Hardin in the Cafe (0:47)<br>5. Party Kiss (1:10)<br>6. Text in Bed (1:30)<br>7. Sotto’s Class (1:08)<br>8. The Lake Kiss (4:18)<br>9. Touched on the Dock (1:46)<br>10.

Main Theme (2:20)<br><br>Hybrid this score is good?It's indeed a shame so much mhsic is missing from the official album.<br><br>Love to hear more!how about credits for the LLL set then?I'm just curious why there's so much dead air in the FYC tracks. Cues like "Shut it Down", "Burton Visits Prime Minister", or "Megatron has Squeeks" just have nothing to them! <br><br>No themes to speak of besides one horn blast of "Quintessa", no interesting melodies, or rhythm, just dead electronics and weak-feeling drums and strings which really doesn't fit in with the series' style. Not even the fourth movies'.
Thanks Hybrid for explaining that. Makes more sense now.Yes it is because the FYC is horrible... The OST is what Steve & co wrote. The FYC is what came out of the Music Editing Factory, which I don't dig at all. Lots of micro edits & transformations Steve probably didn't even hear... lol<br><br>Real final mixes would look like the OST, not like the FYC...You gotta realize one thing, this score is US recorded so every new 15 min of score you release, you gotta pay back reuse fees. So it's very complicated & costy and that's why they released "only" 15 min of extra score.<br><br>If it was recorded in the UK, they could have released 2 hours of bonus tracks it wouldn't have cost anything more... :)<br><br>As for a chrono order, since all cues are mixed together in different tracks in the OST, it gets complicated... It works like that :<br><br>ARTHUR => Theme Suite + 5m30 + 1m05<br>KINGDOM OF ATLANTIS => 3m20-21<br>IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE => 1m01 + 1m04B<br>ATLANTEAN SOLDIERS => Theme Suite + 5m33 + 2m12<br>WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? => Theme Suite<br>THE LEGEND OF ATLAN => 6m39 + 4m23<br>SWIMMING LESSONS => 3m19 + 3m19B + 3m19C<br>THE BLACK MANTA => Theme Suite + 9m69<br>WHAT COULD BE GREATER THAN A KING? => 7m54 + 7m55 + 7m55A<br>PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD => 9m64 + 2m07<br>SUITED AND BOOTED => 8m57 + 8m59<br>BETWEEN LAND AND SEA => 7m51 + 8m61<br>HE COMMANDS THE SEA => 8m60 + 9m65<br>MAP IN A BOTTLE => 6m42 + 8m56<br>THE RING OF FIRE => 5m29 + 8m62<br>REUNITED => 9m68<br>TRENCH ENGAGED => 7m52<br>MERA MONTAGE => 6m43B + 6m48<br>HOME INVASION => 1m04 + 3m15<br>SAVING POPS => 3m18<br>AHAB WAVES => 3m17 + 2m06B<br>ASK THE SEA => 2m08B<br>OBLIGATION => 5m32<br>DUNES => 5m37-38Heitor Pereira, Satnam Ramgotra and Richard Harvey are credited musiciansSounds like a Zimmer version of the Top Gun Anthem to me.

So the film is in theaters (again), and it is doing remarkably well (considering it is a re-release). This is the third time this movie is making its way to the top of the charts, yet even now there is no proper score release. Whatever happened to that "expanded Lion King" album that Hans Zimmer promised? I thought he said "one of these days [he] will be good; [he] will ask Disney 'hey let's do an expanded Lion King score', and [Disney] will say yes."? I remember he said the score is not expensive to release, and he even claimed he is looking Lion King his tapes up, and he is finding things no one has ever heard, etc, etc.

So. Why is it that the newly announced Lion King Deluxe Edition album is once again a song collection? How is it that everything is getting an expanded release of some sort (most of which don't even need one), but this one is still a no-go? I am sure Mr. Zimmer can make it happen if he really wants to. But then again it appears that he is so indifferent about his fans. Oh brother...

supporting you in every phrase you've written.
a shame we haven't something until now. and people moaning about inception and transformers, while these beauties haven't got any love since years.


Obelisk2011-09-20 20:19:25
Well said. I recently purchased the new DVD and it was like falling in love all over again with the score. Fingers crossed that the new Intrada/Disney collaboration might finally do this masterpiece the justice that it's been denied since 17 years. And there couldn't be a better opportunity to coincide it with than the diamond edition Blu-ray release!

> About orchestra

I've never seen any particular name of the orchestra on TLK, but according to the end credits, the music was recorded at:
MEDIA VENTURES (USA), TODD A-O SCORING (USA), ANGEL STUDIOS (UK), BOP STUDIOS (South Africa)
http://www.lionking.org/endcredits.html

And according to DVD commentary the chorus was a mix of London chorus & South African choir.
The songs of voice actors were probably recorded in the US & UK.
Plus, most Disney scores are recorded in America, so I think the orchestra was recorded only in the US (Todd A-O), with musicians of Hollywood, as Ravi said.

I think the purely orchestral material was recorded in the US, so it should be the Hollywood Symphonic Orchestra. The material featuring both African choir and orchestra (both score and the underscore for the songs) was recorded in South Africa and UK so LSO could be the one in UK.

No doubt this is the best score of Hans Zimmer, and personaly i think it is the most beautiful and dramatic music ever written!

Oah, "This Land" is so much more than life, it is, oh, something so great. Plenty o' feelings, happiness, sorrow, strength and honor, bloody hell, perfect! Thanks, Hans!
Intro of Be Prepared sounds like Nightwish, hmm...

Honestly, I don't see much difference between this CD and the '94 one. At first, I was hoping that it will contain more score tracks than the first CD but, instead, it contains two new tracks which are not very special. So, I don't think that it is greater than the first one. I like the artwork on this one and that's all. So, if they want to release a real Special Edition, then they should add more score tracks and, why not, release a special edition on double CD because a movie with music like this really deserves to be in any music fan collection. I don't say that this CD is a waste of money but, like I said before, it's not very special. So, think twice if you have to choose between this and the '94 one. This is my advice.

I just want to tell you - that would mean, you can download the whole CD without paying anything. That is not okay! Hans Zimmer also has to earn money. Don't be so selfish.
I love your music, Hans Zimmer!
