So rockhound...your argument is that the score is better because the movie is worse? That's a new one, gotta admit... :D<br><br>to Armageddon, do it! The complete score, if you can. It's incredible!To Edmund Meinerts,<br><br>I admit I never really got the chance to listen to the entire At World's End score. But now you sir got me interested and I will check it out.<br><br>Cheers.To rockhound, <br><br>With all due respect, sir, that's a stupid statement. Very stupid. Guess you're mad that Rockhound wasn't the main character. How is Willis acting in those scenes bad? He's not overacting, he's not crying-screaming like a little girl. His character is actually very grounded. In the scene with Liv Tyler at the end, he is actually watching a picture of his real daughter. It makes it all the more real. He's very quiet and the performance is realistic. Nothing over-the-top. And people absolutely love that scene. Go to YouTube and read all the comments under the video. So, having said all of that, what exactly is your problem with it? You want him to go all crazy emotional like Nic Cage in Face/Off? Is that it?King Arthur is the perfect example. A terrible script but a great scoreAfter I saw the movie....very great movie & very great scores, better than the first scores!! And the theme for Poppy is also very good!!
Well there's also the track where Izzy's transformers dies, a few action tracks not included that I'd be interested to hear, but you're right, the track I'm most interested in is We Have To Go's film version. The extra strings in the small excerpt where Megatron's arm gets cut off, and the ones added to the main theme really give the song a more heroic and intense tone.Yep. These tracks are amazingOnly tracks that come to mind that aren't in the OST are a variation of Seglass when introducing Edmund, and the film version of We Have To Go.<br><br>Hell, the OST has more music than the movie.Daniel Pemberton seems like a twat.I own the CD and I agree there are times in the score where it's so bombastic it distorts your speakers.<br><br>Still, I felt this was a great score from Zimmer.  It was peak Russian sounding chorus time for Hans and the action cues were better than other scores of this time like The Rock.
i think Armageddon is better in covering of all emotions than Pirates III, because there is one more thing the music has to do in Armageddon....covering bad acting. without the music, all emotional scenes with bruce willis would have been a joke. he acts really bad in these scenes, but the music works wonders.Lol. Anyone can write up a bunch of random slate numbers. Nice try.Armageddon is great fun, but I can think of plenty other scores that cover that spectrum of emotions. At World's End certainly does, and then some.Someone who know the LINK of the complete Soundtrack can Post it here? Thank U<br><br>Ps. Can't wait to hear it!!mmmh not for me, even The Peacemaker or Deep Blue Sea (both ****) are superior than this one! (Iíll give it a *** 1/2).
THIS, ladies and gents, is the greatest MediaVentures-RemoteControl score. No way you can convince me otherwise. lol! No seriously, even The Rock and Crimson Tide are inferior. The Armageddon score has it all, breathtaking and epic action cues, powerful dramatic cues, adventurous pieces, comedic cues. It literally covers the entire emotional spectrum. What other score can do that? Think about it and you'll see that I'm right.   <br><br>Cheers, <br><br>B.It'll come out at some point, but in reality the complete score wouldn't be too different from the album release. Jablonsky said in the all access interview that he wanted the album to contain the songs as he intended them to be, and not what Michael Bay edited everything down to be.The previous scores were leaked, AoE didn't even get recording sessions leaked. And yeah, TF5 earned half a billion, which isn't well for Paramount.<br><br>I don't doubt it will happen, we just won't know when, could be months or years.Why do you doubt it will happen? They released the other complete scores. Did TF5 not sell as well?Please make this a melodic memorable score. I understand due the context of the film their will most likely be sound design. All I want is one or two beautiful melodical electronic themes like the original Vangelis theme for BR. Hope to hear an epic emotional action sound similar to CHAPPiEs action themes. Please don't make another Dunkirk type score.

Glad to have this too.
With the European cover.

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

Thanks


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?

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-23 00:00:00
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.
