This is an RCP website, those scores aren't by RCP composers...Power anthems ???? Obviously you haven’t watched the movie.They would not fit in this movie.<br><br>Balfe’s score is really cool and not expected.Already listened to it 4 times!I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.
What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductorBecause Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?
I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lolAnother awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.
What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.

Interesting…Shirley Walker orchestrated a Hans Zimmer score, and Hans Zimmer was a musician for a Shirley Walker score, and BOTH have composed a Batman score. :P

Small world.

Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer,

ich und mein Kumpel vom YouTube-Kanal FlorianSteinfurtNews werden zur Mitte des Jahres 2012 hin einen Film anlässlich des Jubiläums der örtlichen Feuerwehr produzieren.
Dürfen wir das Lied "Show me your firetruck" in der Audiospur des Filmes verwenden?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
L. Bienbeck

ich denke nicht, dass Hans Zimmer das hier zu lesen bekommt! ;)
bin mir zwar nicht sicher, aber ich denke du solltest direkt an den Administrator eine Mail schicken? ;)
nur ein Tipp

Glaiator sounds like Backdraft, don't you think? 1991 and 2000...

This is absolutely Zimmers best piece...the mood , the feel the emotions...PERFECT

After just listening to Backdraft soundtrack in a long time. I am still grasped by the amount of emotion there is in this score. My two favourite composers are Hans Zimmer And James Horner. Both when give a good script can perform above and beyond. Where have the massive themes and romance gone out of movies today.

I have listened to this soundtrack countless times. It can really get you going. I've pumped it in my truck (pickup not semi) on long trips by myself. It sounds great with 3 big 12"-- subs pounding the lows and getting the full effect of the cd....

Best soundtrack ever. "--You Go, We Go"-- is my absolute favorite from Zimmer. I suggest everyone to get your hands to this awesome soundtrack. Just beautiful. Movie was really great too --]
