Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :P
Thanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the scoreTom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.
Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.
Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.

Is there a cleaner version of this out there? This suffers from being from an analog sourse and the hiss makes it hard to listen too... come on, someone must have this out there!

Probably the reason why this isn’t released is because most of his scores sound the same. ‘Charlie Loses His Head’ at 6:15 on the official release is identical to his Batman Begins score. (not just similar, but identical!). Many of the cues in black rain also draw similarities to his recent Last Samurai. Similar with Black Hawk Down’s track ‘Tribal War’ – is the identical theme from Pirates of the Caribbean. Perhaps its not fair to claim that he rips off his own music (after all... he wrote it), and i do like many of his works – even if they are repeats of his previous pieces. But c’mon mr zimmer, i know your capable of more!!

A soundtrack masterpiece, period. I'm in the same boat as Lsnake: I've been searching for the movie opening version of "I'll Be Holding On" for many years, it just does not seem to be out there. I would offer pretty good money for a clean copy of that track. Released version of that song is great, but the great opening guitar riff is not part of it.
I would still love to see the expanded score available. Hans rules.

Hans, you're the man! I've been a big fan since 'Crimson Tide' and only just recently discovered that you composed the music to 'Black Rain.' Please excert your influence to get your full instrumental score for this film released on cd. You deserve it. We, your fans, deserve it. The music deserves it.

Lsnake reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-12 00:00:00
Oh, I was talking about "I'll be Holding on". The one that is playing from the start of the movie. Trying desperately to figure out if it's possible to obtain that version, if it's a full version, anything..

Lsnake reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-12 00:00:00
I've always loved the version that is actually in the movie, better than the more "rocked" version you get from the soundtrack. Fantastic song for sure, but there's something about the intro one that I can't resist.

It's not on the extended score, and I'm just not sure where to look for it. It should exist somewhere right? Considering Gregg sang that version, it should be available somewhere?

To make it clear, it's the version that plays from the Red Sun with "Black Rain" in white letters, to when Nick arrives at with his MC. Tried Youtube, but everyone got the rocked up version, and none got the in-movie version..If anyone got any ideas, I'd be extremely grateful.

I'll be Holding on is a fantastic song, but I've heard both the normal and expanded soundtrack, and the version of "I'll be holding on" in the beginning of the movie is nowhere to be found. Does this version exist these days? The end version also seems different than the one released on the standard Soundtrack..

The normal version is great, but there's something special about the more atmospheric version in the beginning.

Today, the 18th of september of 2006 it is impossible to buy this exiting CD...a shame. Hans Zimmer set the standard for the modern day ost music, as well as James Horner e.a. These CD's should be available to everyone, in every country, even now...

"--Outburst Of Rage"-- in one part is similar to track "--Molossus"-- from Batman Begins!

Just listen and see!
