So wow...I guess Zimmer really did more here than on KFP 2, no? If he did Hungry for Lunch, the second half of Jaded, Passing the Torch, Oogway's Legacy (credits), and probably one or two more cues.... Whereas he only had like 2 completely solo cues in KFP 2, right?<br><br>It's funny, whenever I learn that Zimmer did a sizable amount of a score after thinking otherwise, I feel like I should apologize to him. xDAgain I say: props, Hans! I didn't know he did orchestrations like this anymore. I did always think Jaded sounded Hansy, but I figured LB helped out with some of the trumpety flourishes. Guess not!Another cool cue that's just Hans is the second half of Jaded, which is the Panda Training... ;)Hybrid, was PM in charge of the Kai cues? That seems to be where he pops up.I like his Nolan scores, but I have gotten tired of his "Nolan approach" (i.e., everything is a short motif that repeats with added layers and volume), cause it's embodied his modus operandi for the last decade almost. Sure, he used that approach before Nolan, but after Nolan, he not only went to town with it and scored most stuff that way, but even espoused it as being preferable to his older stuff like Gladiator. <br><br>So yeah, back to what I said...it's nice that he's broken out of his Nolanisms just a bit. :P It's really refreshing. I hope he continues to do so.
im not the biggest fan of his scores for the nolan movies. Inception worked for me in the movie, but the sound of this score and the theme itself is not something i like to hear on cd. Interstellar is even worse and failed for me for the most part in the movie. the music is overpowering, too simplistic and just added nothing in many important scenes like the goodbye of father and daughter or the big docking scene. in my opinion the movie is not well scored.<br><br>Kung Fu Panda 3 in comparison is....the music enhanced the movie and every scene is perfectly scored. emotion and excitement when it needed but never too much. really great score, especially for a third installment of a franchise. does not happen often...All true. His solo cues in here, and even the "tuneful" sections of the Batman theme from Batman v Superman, are a refreshing return to "broader" writing that it feels like he's almost abandoned since working with Chris Nolan. I honestly wondered whether he'd ever write more "traditional" stuff again, and those two scores tell me he still has it in him. :)i love this score so much. my favourite rcp score in a very long time and its really nice to see, that also hans has solo tracks, which have great melodies and an exciting orchestration. the music is adventurous, funny, emotional, exciting and with a fantastic chinese touch. there is not one bad cue. every track has at least one great moment. i know, hans likes to create new things, but i prefer him when he sticks with the traditional style of score. he shows that he can still do it.Gotta be honest here...while I know that the mantra on this site is "credits don't really matter," it's still nice for me to know that Hans did NOT just phone this in like the initial credit listing made me suggest. Not only did he end up doing the excellent finale of the film on his own (with more complex orchestration than usual for him!), but he also did a very impressive and genuinely bombastic John Powell impression. I had no idea he could even write something like "Hungry for Lunch"! He just doesn't really write like that, at least in 2016. Props, Hans. <br><br>This really is, I think, the last time I trust initial credits to say Zimmer didn't do anything. I was wrong on Inception, I was wrong here, and we were ALL wrong on Batman v Superman. Zimmer usually does more than we'd think.Ribbon Dance is 2 cues, the first part is Lorne. Then the fun actual Ribbon Dance is Hans & Nathan Wang.
Martin Tillman. Click "See details"Hybrid, or anyone who knows, who does the solo cello work for this score?Only the very beginning, The rest is Hans (and Nathan, I guess). <br><br>For those like me who have an easier time conceptualizing *without* parenthetical credits on the tracks, it looks like the OST is this strictly speaking:<br><br>1. Oogway's Legacy - HZ<br>2. Hungry for Lunch - HZ<br>3. The Power of Chi - HZ, LB<br>4. The Arrival of Kai - HZ, PM<br>5. A New Father - HZ, PM<br>6. The Hall of Heroes - HZ, LB, PM<br>7. The Legend of Kai - HZ, PM<br>8. Mei Mei's Ribbon Dance - HZ, LB, NW<br>9. The Panda Village - HZ, LB<br>10. Jaded - HZ, LB, PM<br>11. How to Be a Panda - HZ, LB<br>12. Portrait of Mom - LB<br>13. Po Belongs - HZ, LB <br>14. Kai is Closer - HZ, LB, PM<br>15. Two Fathers - HZ, LB, PM<br>16. The Battle of Legends - HZ, LB<br>17. The Spirit Realm - HZ, LB, PM<br>18. The Dragon Warrior - HZ, LB<br>19. Passing the Torch - HZ<br>20. Father and Son - LB<br><br>Just easier to read that way IMO, even if credit is due to Powell and Imagine Dragons. :)Hmm, interesting. Alright, Hybrid, do you know which of these cues are just HZ then (besides Hungry for Lunch, Passing the Torch, and Oogway's Legacy)?what did HZ do on Ribbon Dance? Isn't that the father / son theme?
You can't really use that as Paul doesn't appear...Those aren't the only cues he did. He worked on a lot. <br><br>Crane and Mantis Jaded<br>HZ/JP<br>Hungry For Lunch<br>HZ/JP<br>Dramatic Entrance<br>HZ/LB<br>Dramatic Exit<br>HZ/LB<br>Every Master Has Vanished<br>HZ<br>Father And Son<br>LB<br>Hall Of Heroes<br>HZ/LB/JP <br>How To Be A Panda Pt 1<br>HZ/LB/JP<br>How To Be A Panda Pt 2<br>HZ/LB<br>Kai And Oogway Battle<br>HZ/JP<br>Kai Arrives<br>HZ<br>Kai Destroys The Palace<br>HZ/JP<br>Kai Is Closer/You Just Did<br>HZ/LB<br>Mei Mei's Ribbon Dance<br>HZ/NW<br>Oogway Passes The Torch<br>HZ/JP<br>Panda Homecoming<br>HZ/LB<br>Panda Kai Battle<br>HZ/LB/JP<br>Panda Training<br>HZ<br>Ping and Li - Two Fathers<br>HZ/LB<br>Portrait Of Mom<br>HZ/LB<br>Po's Destiny<br>HZ/JP <br>Potential<br>HZ/NW<br>Spirit Warrior - Po's Sacrifice<br>HZ/LB/JP <br>The Dragon Warrior <br>HZ/LB <br>The New Dad Part 1<br>HZ/JP<br>The New Dad Part 2<br>HZ/JP <br>The Power Of Chi<br>HZ/LB/JP <br>The Spirit Realm<br>HZ/JP<br>The Spirit Realm Continued<br>HZ/LB <br>The Training<br>HZ/LB <br>Trek To The Village Part 1<br>HZ/LB<br>Trek To The Village Part 2<br>HZ/LB <br><br>I probably missed a few. Soldier probably knows which ones =p.This is truly the last time I trust myself if I think Zimmer did next to nothing on a score. Granted, two extra cues isn't much, but I had completely written off those two as Balfe before now. Add in Batman v Superman where he did 80-90% of what we hear and I thoroughly mistrust my initial instincts with these scores anymore. :PI have to say I would NEVER have guessed either of those to be Zimmer cues! Surprising indeed. There's such complicated Powellish orchestration! Zimmer just doesn't do that much anymore.So, Zimmer did Hungry for Lunch AND Passing the Torch? Well, well!

It's correct that the music from where the Nile gets turned into blood is the "It Is Only Beginning..." track ... however, there apparently does exist a shorter version of this CD, where this track is absent, and only the Chariot Race is included. But I've never seen it, though ... I only have this 'longest' version (fortunately) ;)

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-17 00:00:00
Glad the Chariot Race is on this one, along with the original Ten Commandments music. Those were the biggest unreleased highlights on the OST IMO. A pity the "Nile of Blood" track isn't on this one.

The music I hear during Nile of Blood sequence is on this one actually. Give "It Is Only A Beginning" another listen.

I'm so glad that they have issued this promotional disc. This album comes with three superb, new, never-before-released cues. If you haven't noticed by now, the Chariot Race track has two cues within: The actual Chariot Race sequence and the grand finale of the film, though the version in the disc is different from the one that appeared on the final film but it's better than the film version if you ask me and it is certainly one of the biggest finales Hans Zimmer ever composed.

Regretably, this disc was not widely released. The three new cues well worth the money and certainly amazed me as a person who also listened to the original soundtrack of Prince of Egypt and totally enjoyed it.
