I agree, typically JunkieXL's music doesn't do much for me, but I can't help enjoying "Brothers in Arms."I must have gone to the YouTube comments section by mistake.OH! You did what you did because you can. Here's an idea, in case you haven't thought of it: you can take off your clothes and run around naked in a train station. It will be timely as f**k.<br><br>BTW, you took nearly a month this time. Hibernate much?ultra frikin epic best OST song ever :)yeah realffingmusic i did because if you havent noticed i can do what i want. and my message is timely as it'll ever be cuz this movie still sucks balls 3 years later
So hearing JunkieXL's scores recently, this has really made me wonder...did Zimmer *really* work on the Arcade and Zod theme suites, or are they really all Junkie and Zimmer's name is a nice formality? Because they don't sound especially Zimmerish *anyway,* yet they sound identical to JunkieXL's recent output. ;)The Terminator Salvation video game correctly included the T-1000 motif, even if it wasn't used in the right context.<br><br>If Balfe stays, I'm hoping he leans more towards synth in the next score. If not, then I hope whoever takes over does.The samples sound great! Looking forward to hearing this!This score should've sounded more like Chappie...Alas, you are correct...<br><br>Since T3 all the scores have gone symphonic...Sure, there's percussion and some nifty SFX to go with the music, but as a whole it just doesn't fit and turns the movie into an action adventure. Beltrami and Elfman made good themes, but they just missed the point.<br><br>Terminator should very well sound synthetic.  <br><br>I figured with Remote Control behind the wheel this time, we'd get that. But in my opinion Balfe just went with Beltrami and Elfman and decided to turn this into a Jablonsky Transformers sounding score with more of your usual symphonic material. <br><br>Sure, it's using synths, but to be honest I would have preferred the synths Junkie used in Mad MAx over what was used here. Or hell, drag out Han Zimmer's harsh droning synths from the early 2000s...toss in some more anvil and marching band for the percussion and there you go. <br><br>I simply don't understand why this is so difficult. Or maybe it's too simple and that's why they keep missing the mark. <br><br>The Terminator Salvation video game score sounds closer to what I was hoping it would sound like than what we got.<br><br>Oh well...Nice themes though.
FINALLY! :DListen carefully to the score. Its not hard to see who did the work.<br><br>Zimmer writes his simple, strong themes like the shen one and then Balfe gives them the ornate orchestrations and Powell-esque arrangements. Simple. Like I said here months ago on the batman page. Zimmer doesn't write this style of complicated cue himself. That's not his style. He doesn't do frilly and swirls and trumpets, he does austere and basic. Enter Balfe to spice it up.<br><br>Maybe that's why people are mixing up and thinking Powell did more than he did. Zimmer tunes + Balfe arrangement and you get a decent impression. Which was pretty much Megamind as well, a mini-Powell score in parts. Balfe is a very good arranger let's give him credit.Really looking forward to this.@Hybrid<br><br>Oh? That's interesting. Was it like a "Pirates" situation where everything was rushed or a producer thing?Powell did "Po Finds the Truth," apparently. I do find it pretty funny that it seems like the two primary composers didn't have as big a role as some of the secondary ones...And yet, this score is still great!
Any ideas which scenes Powell actually worked on, if any?There aren't much interviews because the projects didn't go that well during its production. And Powell actually didn't do much.I agree, to me the score mostly sounds like Lorne Balfe. <br><br>But I dunno, as I've said before, I don't think it's a case that Zimmer or Powell write a sketch and then sit back and drink coffee while the others do the work. I imagine it's very collaborative. <br><br>Unfortunately there's very few interviews/info about this score compared to a lot of others, which is a pity, because it's one of the best RCP collaborations. It's a really tight, well put-together, consistent, enjoyable score, and it's a shame none of the composers involved want to talk about it!I agree. Zimmer isn't heard obviously in much of this score, as has been repeatedly hashed out, but neither is Powell, if you ask me! It does seem like the additional guys did most of the writing here, albeit copiously using old themes and cues and doing so, presumably, under Powell and Zimmer's direction. I honestly don't see Zimmer *really* doing much of KFP3, either, even though his name is the main credit so far.<br><br>Thoughts?it seems that Intrada will release AGENT CODY BANKS on 7/7 :) source are the hints in the Intrada or FSM forum.

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) ;)

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.
