I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.
I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.

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.
