CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s music
i can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2
Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?
Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

My best movie... plenty of emotions, colors and heat !
I've been living in africa while young (3 month till 9 years), and I can feel Africa with this movie like anyother one !

In The Lion King, African lyrics on the score (and background chorus/vocals in the songs) are not Swahili. Since Lebo M (who worked with Hans Zimmer) is from South Africa, lyrics are South African languages - isiZulu, Sesotho, Setswana.
I learned about these things from this website: http://www.lionking.org/~taabani/
It has a lot of interesting information about languages in TLK. :)

But most of the character's name and some words ("Hakuna Matata" and Rafiki's "Asante sana" song) are Swahili.

So, I think lyrics on The Power of One score is also South African languages.

Hi...I'm wondering if the lyrics, at least some of them,are not Swahili? Especially since as someone noted, the producer worked with the producer of Lion King, which definitely contains Swahili. Thoughts?

Absolutely WONDERFUL soundtrack, the music is hauntingly beautiful. Lebo M's vocals go hand-inhand with Hans' music.
Now to answer some questions I've noticed.
Unfortunately, there are NO lyrics to this soundtrack availible.
As to the language, its more than likely Zulu or Tswana or possibly Sotho (Lebo M speaks quite a few languages of South Africa, those are the three I know of).

Can someone tell me the name of the song used in the commercial "the power of one" which was aired in 1993 by Earth Communications Office http://www.oneearth.org/.

The music was produced by Hans Zimmer, and I am guessing it is from this CD, but I dont know.

You can view the commercial on youtube at

Hello everybody and sorry for my english!!! I watched "the power of one" (in italian obvously) and I think that's a spectacular movie. It makes me wonder about how to spend my life and how to react against our fears and unsureness.
I am looking for the lyrics of the soundtrack and I'd like to understand the meanings of that song. My e-mail address is unworthy_84@yahoo.it. If anybody could help me to find something about this I would be so happy. Thank you

To buy the soundtrack, try Amazon.co.uk. You can get it used for about 13 pounds (approx $26 depending on exchange rate) and 3 pounds postage

regarding the lyris to the southland concerto, just before the Boar prison guard beats morgan freeman to death, he asks freeman to tell him what they are singing, and freeman's answer is something like, "we will never bow, give them what they want, they are pigs, we will live on." that's just my very tired brain paraphrasing. best to watch the movie again and listen for that part. the part where everybody cries.

Has anyone else ever noticed that Hans Zimmer and Lebo M worked together for the theatre production of Disney's The Lion King as well? And not only that, but they sampled the women's choral part from Power of One's 'Woza Mfana' in The Lion King's 'The Lioness Hunt'? Clever, but it didn't slip past me!!!!

See if you can find the same thing!

If you've watched the film you will know the lyrics to the Southland concerto - Peekay wasen't lying you know! 'They run this way, they run that way, etc, etc.'

The film is highly enjoyable and moving - in fact I based 6 months of my life on it and moved to Johannesburg. Sorry folks, SA is nothing like the film these days - Apartheid has ended but inequality and crime remain rampant.

We are Australian/Kiwis..My husband and I are currently reading The Power of One and we are totally engulfed in the magical storytelling of Bryce Courtney. We now wish to have the soundtrack of the music composed by "Doc" and sung by the "different tribes" incarcerated in the prison where Doc was, for the length of the war.
