I disagree... in my opinion the best disciple of Hans Zimmer is Klaus BadeltAfter getting a 28-minute suite on Man of Steel, I consider nothing impossible anymore. :P But tons of Hans' moderately long suites that frequently appear on album beg to differ as it is, no?Watched the docking scene on YouTube...Guess this means the "film version" is indeed considered the "official" one. lol.that is because true idiot mixed scoreIt was rather awesome. I'm sure there will be others to write a large description of the night but suffice to say when the Albert Hall's organ kicked in it was rather special! Oh, and Jessica Chastain signed my programme (although Hans Zimmer didn't despite being right in front of him twice :( I was beginning to take it personally! :D)
Haha, I know what you mean about the Rafiki piece. Whenever he gets all excited over Simba still being alive, it always felt jarring when you can hear the end of that cue suddenly pop up without the full build up heard in the sessions/Legacy Collection. After being so used to listening to the score own its own so many times, one can never get used to that sudden change.<br><br>Anyway, I think more could have been added to the set, plus maybe instrumental versions of the songs too(in their faithful film mix to boot), but I'm mostly happy with how the set turned out. My only major grip is still that dopey cross-fading. Curse you, Pumbaa and your snorting!I'm waiting for my copy, but of all the download versions I've come across it has been substantially altered. I was upset too.I will check for you later today Alan!<br><br>I downloaded the 1080p IMAX torrent a few weeks ago and all the volume seemed fine to me! People must have been crazy saying the music was too loudRight... so I got my blu-ray pre-order in today, a day early, and I can't help but notice (or think I do, at least) that the loudest parts of the movie, where the music really used to drown stuff out (that I, personally, loved but everyone else complained about) has been dumbed down a bit? I realize my home theater will not sound even so much as an ounce like the IMAX I saw the film in multiple times, but damn... I really feel like those scenes that really BAM sent the score home. Scenes I am thinking of are the bigs ones: Mountains, Mann's betrayal, Docking. They're just... not loud anymore. The voices and the sound effects are great! But the music... it's toned down a bit.<br><br>Has anyone else had this issue with theirs? I even checked out the iTunes version and it's got the same volume control as well... does anyone think Nolan succumbed (or was forced) to obey a few complaints and "turned" the music down? Man I really just hope it's my system....Hans , I am a young violinist in a modest orchestra Chile, symphony orchestra in the municipality of El Bosque , I love your music and I am a fan of the trilogy of Batman, we would do very proud to play your song Rise number 15 of the pelicila the Dark Knight Rises, I tried to find scores without success to find them , please if you would be so kind as to give me a copy for playing this wonderful song.<br><br>I hope you can answer .<br><br>Atte<br>Diego Suarez
You're pissing me off mate, posting this on every page you come across. Those complete scores exist. You might be too dumb to find them by yourself, but they are real. Stop jerking around.So, how was it? Watched some recordings on youtube, it must have been awesome!<br>Would you knock it off already posting these stupid "unofficial complete scores" already?  They do no exist legally anywhere and we can never buy nor hear them ever so WHY DO YOU INSIST ON DOING THIS OVER AND OVER AND OVER????I really don't think they would've put a 12-minute track on the OST Mike. That rarely happens anymore. We got luck with Angels & Demons!Yep but it is a different version. 41 cues and they are demos not sessions
I really, really love the "Strategy" cue. Terrific to have in the background during writing or studying. That cue and "Mr. Charles"--a travesty they weren't put on the album release.Excluding the songs, there was Scar's Dinner, which used a version that is still unreleased in any form bar the film. Then there was Stampede, which had alterations to its opening percussion and chorus mix. As Good As Dead PT1 had its ending mixed with additional snare percussion. Rafiki had some cuts and the ending was dialled out for a chorus-only fade. Homeward Bound had additional changes to its percussion, including an additional hit at the start and the removal of all percussion at the end, and they also modified "Simba and Nala Move In/End", mostly with standard editing but at the end they did alter the percussion mix.Martin Tillman is scoring a new movie called A bell for Ursli! I'm very glad that he gets to do some composing of his own these days! He is such a great musician! He plays the cello in most of Zimmer's and HGW's scores if you don't know who he is:PYes the forum has it, but without track names. Only slatesI love it, too. Can anyone tell me how to get it? Thanks.

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

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...

MacArthur reply Replies: 2 || 2013-09-02 06:09:29
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?

tim reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-16 00:00:00
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.

Need to buy actual soundtrack and movie from K2, not interpretations of that music.
