For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.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 sessions
I 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 musici 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 2Guess 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 know
The 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)

My favourite Soundrtrack of all time. As an ex- South African (now Israeli..) I'm amazed what this soundtrack did to me. I lived there in my childhood and the soundtrack made me feel every minute of it. Gets me to tears each time...
Captured South Africa with those wonderful choirs to perfection.

I want to purchase Power of One and I only see it listed on Amazon for $142.00 and I can't figure out why a CD soundtrack would come near to costing that amount. Can you tell me where I can go to purchase the CD only and for far less than $142?

Thank You

The Power of One Soundtrack..what can I start to say? Hans Zimmer is the most effective composer I think and believe in ALL of history (sorry Mozart) yes I said it. this soundtrack cleanses the soul..very emotional, raw and moving music. i use it to instantly bring balance and serenity back to my life.

I had a friend from south africa listen to it who never heard it before and he was astonished..he knew the lyrics and was brought to tears as well.
i recommend that you read the power of one book by bryce courtenay-- it's my #1 favorite novel and you will hear his music as you read it playing. yes the movie was underappreciated inkosikazi..

was listed earlier for lyrics to this one song. While a song of the same title is on the Power of One soundtrack, the lyrics are slightly different (you'll notice if you listen) and more generic:
Senzenina? (What have we done?)
Sohlangana ezulweni. (We will meet again in Heaven (literally, in the sky)).

I just returned from a 15 day concert tour to South Africa with my college choir. As one can imagine, the experience was life changing in the most positive ways! On yesterday, I caught the end of the movie 'The Power of One' and was immediately drawn into the choral soundscape of the music. I am launching my search for whatever resources I can find so that my choir may perform excerpts from this score. It's obvious that I'm joining a great community of choral conductors who have experienced the same revelation. Help!

I wish I could find the lyrics to the score also and have had no luck searching the web. I own the Soundtrack and, unfortunately, the lyrics are not noted on the insert.

Does anyone know these or where to find them? I would like both the original lyrics and an English translation.

Blessings &-- Thanks!

I was struck by how much "--The Funeral Song"-- sounds like "--Martin 452"-- a song from the 1991 Denson Sacred Harp. The words are english, written by charles wesley in 1738 and the music by S.B. Marsh in 1836.

Does anyone know if there's any relationship between these songs? I'd love an email back: #####. Thanks!

Hunt around online. carries it. Audio samples are there as well. But the price ($45) seems odd. Worth it though.

The Power of One still remains as my favourite movie and favourite CD. Even after all these years. The movie never got the recognition it deserved. It was Oscar material in my opinion.

I watched it at the theater by chance. The theater had a two movie special. A friend wanted to see the first movie and wanted someone to go with him. I cannot even remember the name of that first movie or what it was about. But I was bored out of my mind. Come the start of the second movie (the Power of One), I was thinking...'gosh, I don't want to sit through another movie'. My friend said it was about boxing or something and I gritted my teeth even more.

When it was over, I was stunned and floored by the effect it had on me. Four subsequent nights in a row I paid to see it again. Then under two weeks it was out of the theaters and the movie basically disappeared.

Everybody I have bought this movie for absolutely loved it. Same too with the soundtrack.
