Itís funny how from 2015 until now weíve went from things like Mad Max, Deadpool, and Tomb Raider to this, Sonic, Alita, and Mortal Engines. Definitely a big change for the better as a composer.Pretty enjoyable score, that's for sure (and another reminder for Tom's haters, why is good), and interesting mix of styles and orchestrations (and conducted by Conrad Pope).I really hope Junkie takes on more animated/kids films in the future similar to how Zimmer, Balfe, Powell, Mancina, and HGW did.  There's a  playful liveliness there that RCP really knows how to bring out when they actually give it a shot.<br><br>It's still a shame Jablonsky and Badelt never went down that road any further.<br><br>Nostalgia has its place but when it turns into stupidity it gets annoying. Vinyl only release, c'mon!... I was so happy when CDs replaced vinyls and now we should be glad that that dated and impractical technology comes back? It's a NO for me!Hybrid, is there any chance we can get some infos and credits for the cues? That would be outstanding. Thanks!
Good lord it's like he was exploding with energy and ideas after the touring gigsMore Hans !! :)If you enjoyed Sonic then youíll probably enjoy this, even though it is far more hyperactive. The score is such a crazy mashup of Carl Stalling/epic orchestral/60ís funk/industrial trap beats/electronic/etc.<br><br>I have to say, while the themes arenít particularly memorable, the last 5 cues or so feature some great choral writing with good use of some ethnic wind instruments (Duduk?)...I have a question about a song from this documentary that is not on the soundtrack. Could anyone please tell me the track at approximately 47:35? Thunder is cracking, Pantani begins his attack on the Galibier, and Matt Rendell is there with eloquent narration. I got so swept up in the score at this point that I spent over an hour rewinding and Shazaming and looking up all of Balfe, Aruj, and Dworetsky's music I cound fine. Any help would be much appreciated!<br><br>Thaks,<br>SamThey all sound the same. Bland.
So what do you think about the westworld competition and what is your most favorite entry?In sound quality (regardless of what certain peope might say about how great LPs sound; it's an analog format) the bootleg already trumps it I guess...I have the same question as wellIt could be possible, but there would be too many seconds of overlap between some of these tracks for that to be a possibility in this specific case. I really hope they haven't cut down the tracks to fit on vinyl, otherwise the bootleg will trump it in terms of content.Maybe the different time lengths is due to tracks slightly overlapping each other (as in many HZ soundtrack releases)?
Comparing the track times listed here, it seems (at first glance) that many of the tracks are edited down from the complete cues as heard on the bootleg. Could the listed track times be simply incorrect, or have edits been made to make the score fit onto four sides? I guess we can find out when the record ships in July.<br><br>Additionally, for those without a record player it sucks that a CD release was not possible for La-La Land. Whatever the reasons are for that, it's a bizarre situation that one independent label can release the same material on vinyl but another cannot on CD. Quite perplexing...@Hybrid, will you make the Scoob Page?Perhaps "The Cistern (Alternate)" is the album version. The music I heard in the film is not 100% the same with the track I heard in the OST.Dang I cant wait to hear the Alternate 'Cistern' cueVinyl only...How dumb can you get

Listening to ďThe MegĒ really made me nostalgic for this score (and every other power-anthem score we got from MV in the 90ís).

As dumb as this movie is, you still get 3 memorable themes that develop throughout, not to mention a number of different sub-themes and a variety of styles ranging from horror to fantasy to action and so on. Nowadays you are lucky if you get one decent theme and music that isnít 70% ambient/sound design.

The irony is that 20 years ago Rabin was getting such a shitstorm from "purists" for his general style, guitars & stuff...

20 years later, people come and listen again and finally be "hey, that wasn't so bad..."

In 20 years, people will listen stuff from now and react the same way...

mpolonest1232018-08-06 02:18:56
Canít argue with that, I was 5 when I saw Deep Blue Sea in theaters and remember loving the score as a kid, so Iím sure nostalgia plays a big part. And Iím sure the generation that grew up with Hans is going to dislike whatever direction film music takes (much like how the ďpuristsĒ dislike the RCP style)

Personally I donít mind the stylistic approach current scores have, which is why I enjoy many of Junkie XLís earlier works. Being a theme person, however, Iím partial to scores that can take a more thematic approach....

superultramegaa2018-08-06 03:31:39
I'm not going to look back at Skyscraper or JunkieXL's work and and admit it's good. I agree traditionalists can be a pain in the ass, but the current trend of turning film scores into the worst aspects of video game music, with little focus on motifs and leitmotifs besides 1 or 2 central ideas, mixed with the ugliest of electronic noises you can muster, is not a good trend by any means.

I am by no means a traditionalist either. Despite its lack of sophisticated thematic detail, video games have produced some of the best music of our time, just as film has. I also love much of Zimmer's work, along with Jablonsky's more notable efforts. I'm not one of those people who say that every composer and film score needs to have constant time signature changes and chromaticism in every track, (to be honest those are the least important aspects in my opinion.)

However, if you're going to spend the time and money recording an orchestra, use the damn orchestra. Don't bury it in synth and the ugliest, loudest, mentally damaging electronic noise you can think of! Mix it with orchestra organically like TDK Trilogy or the Transformers series, sure. Use only electronics if you absolutely think the orchestra will not work for a movie, go for it. Don't just create noise for the sake of noise.

Even melodic composers who sometimes feel like they're composing nothing more than complex orchestral noise (Alan Silvestri as of late), at least their music had thought put into it, took real mental energy, and has a really nice aesthetic. How much thought does it really take nowadays, to mix electronics together until they're loud and ugly enough? Sure, maybe to design the noises, but composition wise? It wouldn't shock me if their notes for composing some of these tracks were simply "intense electronics play."

As a final note, the lack of instrument variety is seriously getting on my nerves with some composers, especially with the release of Christopher Robin showing off Zanelli's ability for it. I love horns and strings as much as the next guy, but get woodwinds, exotic instruments, accordions, percussion instruments like xylophones, celestas, all of it! This problem is biggest with RCP currently, but even melodic scores are using less and less instruments (Marvel movies).

I know this is somewhat unrelated to this score specifically, but I really have been getting kinda pissed with the state of film music (particularly Jablonsky after the wonderfully varied IDEA and the return to form in Transformers 5).

@Hybrid, do you know why Trevor didn't make the score? I mean, John Turteltab made both National Treasure and The Sorcerer's Apprentice and in those films Trevor was the composer

rockhound2018-08-06 10:00:57
Trevor is still on tour with ARW.

Scorefan2018-08-06 21:31:35
@rockhound, thanks

The people still forget the main problem is not the composer, is the people behind it: directors, producers, studios.

I don't hate electronic scores (Skyscraper was ok, but far from the best from Jab), but also think NOT every movie ask for a full orchestral score (and this come from a guy who loves people like Michael Giacchino, Trevor Jones or John Williams, for god sake, Jerry Goldsmith (Planet of the Apes have a score not thematic with a lot of variety of instruments, even Alien have such thing, and is my FAVORITE from Jerry).

Well, go to the topic. Deep Blue Sea is one of my favorites (and yeah, when i was listen The Meg, i recall this one), and DBS is dumb, but fun movie, and the fu** epic guitar from Rabin is still memorable.

we need to contact Rabin and tell him to release the complete score for this, or who ever is in charge.

Yeah, I wish La La Land or Intrada or some other label would release an expanded edition of Deep Blue Sea. There's so much good music missing on the original score album.

This really isn't worth anyones time to find. The tracks, although listenable, only make you want the better and real thing much more and it's just more of a tease then anything because end has almost everything that the other tracks have but maybe 40 seconds of what should have been put in the original score. Infact it's quite sad the score released for this movie was so puny. Honestly it deserved a 2-CD Complete or atleast MOST of the music.

Owell. Maybe someday she will appear!

Wow... finally the music that was missing from the original score. The quality isn't that good with track 11 to 13 but it's listenable. Very good score! =)© 2001-2018 OST
