Off the top of my head:<br><br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Swimming Lessons<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan<br>The Ring of Fire<br>What Does That Even Mean?<br>Map In A Bottle<br>The Black Manta<br>Trench Engaged<br>Reunited<br>What Could Be Greater Than A King?<br>He Commands The Sea<br>Suited And Booted<br><br>Not sure about Arthur, Between Land And Sea, and He Commands The Sea. I think Arthur may be a suite that includes his main theme, the Atlantis chase, and some action themes. I'd have to listen to the other two tracks again to be sure, but I think He Commands The Sea is near the end.anyone care to take a stab at the chronological trask listing?Yes, both played in the film, and it's sort of a suite: It's split into two in the film, first part sounds close to the opening, the heavy synth part plays in really well when it's used, you'll hear it the moment it starts, no spoilers from me, but it's an awesome sequence.Does the cue "Arthur" play during the film or is it a theme suite?It's confirmed a CD release, but not confirm if is a CD-R
Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris

Holy shit. So I just listened to this album on YouTube and it's FANTASTIC. So much 80s cheeseball fun. And the first track even has the riff in it that would go on to become the First Born theme and then, later on, way way way down the road, 160 BPM from Angels & Demons. It's really incredible how distinct Hans' voice is even as early as 1983. As much as I enjoy the vocals, I'd kill to get instrumental versions of some of these songs.

Yo dude. Thanks for pointing this out. Listening to it now. Sounds excellent.


isildur2017-03-23 15:19:37
And in the Track 4 isn't that a bit of Inception?


Dimitris Krommidas2017-03-23 16:46:17
Where do you listen to this guys? In my channel? I have the album in my channel.


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-23 16:59:11

Oh yeah it's great, Moonlight In Vermont even has Beckett's Death from POTC 3 !


Anonymous2017-03-24 03:01:42
Moonlight also reminds me of parts of Chappie!

So that's where the original sources of one of the fragments of Beckett's theme for the third Pirates. Cool!

if for whatever reason zimmer , cann, griff decides not to release the spies album, there will forever be something of great importance missing in the music indistry! just the fact that is never was released does it even more interesting.there are still a lot of people around the world who would be very excited if it happened.it would make their career complete, and such great material should not be forgotten.pleeeeeeeeease!!!!!!

I was a great time and a pleasure to work with such a great team on the Helden Project.I cant wait for the album to get released.

I also heard for the first time the tracks "Holding On" and "Stranded" and was greatly impressed. They seem timeless at this present day.

I have a feeling that eventually the Spies album will be released. I guess it was meant to be. Hans, Warren and Zaine deserve this as a testament to their creativity, ambitions and friendship. The music contained in this album and Zaine's albums and singles was where it all started for Hans.

Vielen danke fur die Musik von drei Helden! Der Moment fur Spies ist heute und immer und immer!

I recently heard that efforts to release Spies are continuing... been waiting years for this! Hope it finally sees the light of day.

Recently several videoclips and live-clips from Zaine Griff are added top YouTube and can be watched there. As you might know Hans Zimmer played in Zaine's band, was with him on stage at Zaine's final Grand Finale concert in The Venue London and Hans also arranged a lot of Zaine's music on zaine's second album Figures. Also two of the tracks from SPIES are added (as "audiomovie") on YouTube.

Are copies of this bootleg still available anywhere - as far as you know? Was it only released in 1984 on vinyl? Or maybe later (also) on CD? I think two tracks are missing from the complete album: the first track "--Mother Company"-- and the last instrumental track "--Eva"--, that should have come after "--Movies for Eva"--. I know that for a long time the Ultravox fanclub tried to convince Hans Zimmer to release the CD. Several times it was close to release -as I understood. But until now it is not there? And why was the album never released? It would have been released on their own label ZiCa records 001 (Zimmer/Cann), but it never was. Do you know the reason. Only the 7"-- and 12"-- of the Single "--Holding On"-- (with beautiful vocals of Zaine Griff and Linda Jardim) was released, with two songs on the B-side. But I think that was never really distributed. Beside that I think in the credits you should mention that Zaine Griff did the vocals on the most songs ( The Ball, Holding On, Stranded, Borderline. Movies for Eva) and also Hugo Vereker (Young &-- Scientific and - I think - My Killing Hand) and excellent female vocals of Linda Jardim on most of the tracks. I think it's worthwhile to mention that! One last question: who were the writers of the songs? Were they all written bij Zimmer/Cann or where some songs written by Zaine Griff? And what was the work done by Steve Rance - also mentioned large on the cover of "--Holding On"--. I thought he was technician or did he do other things in the Helden Project as well?
