What is it?  Link didn't work...I agree. You don't find such scores a lot anymore these days.<br><br>I has it all: epic, fun, chaotic, quiet, bombastic, cover song gone cinematic, great diverse instrumentation, themes, ...<br><br>Aaaah. I am getting nostalgic here. How I miss the early 2000s.<br><br>This one can join my 'Best adventure score' playlist joining the likes of How To Train Your Dragon, Lair, Outcast, Killzone 2, Cutthroat Island, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, LOTR, Hobbit, ...I'm very curious about two tracks in the previous fake 2CD expanded edition: Victim (2:05)and Adagio (8:59). Do anyone know if they where from other movies, promos or what? <br>Thank you!Did anyone here upload Blake Needy or is it over with him there on RCP?!https :// m. youtube. com /watch?v=RLeWwydBEXo<br><br>This one sounds promising.
Outlook not good.Wow, that "Hans Zimmer is The Man" track is amazing, congratulations !Junkie XL has now confirmed that he is the composer of the proxim film Deadpool !! This guy does not stop.Hey Hybrid,<br>Do you know if the film version of "Imagine The Fire" was an edit of existing tracks or a complete re-recording?<br><br>It's a cool mix between some Dark Knight cues and the album version of Imagine the Fire.Wall-E —an even better comparison. ;)
An excellent score indeed! A little chaotic and "overstuffed" at times, but I'll always take a score that's too complicated over one that's too simplistic, and I just love how much stuff Powell throws at you. "Flying Ship Fight" and "A Boy Who Could Fly" are some of the best action music of the year.Oh my God. 94 tracks? Any chance of this getting a leak?There's a 2 CD set coming, but I think it will only add the songs used, which isn't so bad really. Maybe it could have some additional tracks, you never know.<br>It's up in Amazon as Deluxe Soundtrack, it's coming November 6I just noticed that there's an almost 9-minute cue on this credited to Marc Streitenfeld, among others. That seems weird - shouldn't this have been way back in the day when he was still Hans' chauffeur? :pGreat score, I'm not dissapointed. :D
Mike, interesting you mention Nemo. I swear I was listening to Wall-E. Lol. Great score, though."Sprouting Potatoes" too. Beautiful little track. Should have been longer though.It's true. There is almost like 50% songs. It works though but I would have liked to hear more score of course!Why?<br><br>He is good :)Nah...<br><br>I have zero motivation to work on T. Morris right now...

Anyone else think that the part about 3 or 4 minutes into "The Ascent" resembles "Absurdity" from The Lone Ranger?

was the Chaz Jankel soundtrack never released for the k2 movie ?
there is so much energy in it ! were MR Zimmer its just to mellow for my taste

anyone know where you can buy it download it ?


Hybrid Soldier2013-09-15 09:36:58
Ask Robert Townson from 20 years ago, he's the one who decided to release that version of the score.

HZ has nothing to do with it.

Actually I'm still trying to see the British version of that movie with HZ's score, no way I listen to it with Jankel's ! :P

Bioscope2013-09-15 17:19:34
In South Africa, there's a dvd distributer named NEXT VIDEO, if I remember correctly, that released the PAL version with Zimmer/ Glennie-Smith's version. Check out an online store named KALAHARI, you should get it there :)

The picture and sound is great...

Is this the One on iTunes

MacArthur2013-09-02 06:10:31
Because I thought that Zimmer didn't do the music for K2. only the The Music Inspired by it

Anonymous2013-09-02 09:25:19
There are two scores - a European version (scored by Zimmer) and the original version (scored by Chaz Jankel).

I was dust cleaning my old cds, and I accidentally read the notes Hans wrote on the back of this album where he thanked Nick Glennie-Smith for writing and arranging some cues which have unfortunately been omitted from this record, so if someone was wondering the music on this cd is 100% Zimmer.

I wish the 12 tracks are leaked. Thanks for sharing just 007.

K22011-06-29 02:23:01
I think its the OST cut into tracks with possibly the end credits added from DVD.

T-Mann0362011-08-13 02:36:01
Is it possible if you could separate them by length of time on each of the 12 tracks?

Takehiro2011-08-13 05:26:33
1. (3:10)
2. (4:30)
3. (1:41)
4. (2:57)
5. (4:06)
6. (3:37)
7. (3:10)
8. (3:01)
9. (3:04)
10. (4:45)
11. (2:56)
12. (4:40)

There is no extra music on this, it is simply the OST cut into film order. Its a neat idea, but its not an expanded score by any means, not even slightly.

T-Mann0362011-08-13 07:26:03
Thanks Takehiro... I DEFINITELY needed that!

Theres an expanded score of this on sale in Europe, from a bootlegging group. Anyone got the tracklisting for it?

having seen both versions of the movie, with both scores... Jankel may have been a replacement, but his score works better within the film; the slow character scenes and vastness of the surroundings come across better with the pink-floyd-esque music in the american release. Zimmers score just doesn't match the tone of the film itself; its too busy, sonically cluttered, and dare-I-say, small scale.

That being said I prefer the European cut of the film for the extra scenes, so c'est la vie. And Zimmer's score, I was surprised to find, works really well on the CD, if you're a fan of his sound.

It just doesn't work in K2.

Now wheres the Chaz Jankel CD?

Superb soundtrack.
Originally saw the movie in the UK with the Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Absolutely stunning.
Live in Canada now, and own the infinitely inferior North American edition of the movie with some guy called Chaz Jankel doing soundtrack duty. Completely senseless!
Hans rules!
Praying that someone with real taste and class will release the DVD with the Hans soundtrack over here!

1) The Ascent (27:40) (The longest cue ever written by Hans Zimmer)
2) The Descent (13:41)

An excellent progressive soundtrack that holds your ears bound to the speaker. The kind of soundtrack that you don't know what will you hear next. A must-hear soundtrack.
