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. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.
can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/
@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?
Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picassowhy his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?

"Woud to Ruin", "Budget Meeting" - this is the best of Hans Zimmer, this is the best music I ever heard, this is the best music in this world

Great music, as always from Hans Zimmer, I like it a lot! it's a shame the song of exile wasn't recorded on the CD, still a great soundtrack!
I am looking forward to every new film featuring Hans Zimmer's outstanding soundtracks!

@ Vladan Gecin:
I hear you, would like to know the orchestra that played the soundtrack as well and King Arthur isn't the only one where it isn't named. However, I think in this case it was the Lyndhurst Orchestra.

The best part of the movie is that song "we will go home", its so dramatic,inspiring, and touching..that song made me realize that the place i belong is a haven..

Firstly, I love thie score and is perhaps my favorite Zimmer score because it has every dynamic possible. The heartfelt, moving, powerful, epic, battle sequences, every cue is filled with a new adventure. Plus the cello solos by Martin Tillman are, IMHO, some of the best in movie soundtracks to date! But now to my question, could someone tell me which tracks those that are credited with "Additional Music" helped on? For instance, which tracks did Trevor Morris help with?

Has anyone ever heard of the Warriors book series by Erin Hunter? I thought Hans Zimmer would be a great composer for a possible movie even before I heard this. Keep up the good work, HZ!

In response to "Me": scores like this are mostly a group effort, but they put Zimmer's name on it because it's simpler and more people know his name than they do his associates. I respect independent composers as well, but if you don't like Remote Control's work, then don't post here.

corrcting arreinh, in one of the lines and the ending of the song:

We will go home across the mountains
We will go home, we will go home
We will go home across the mountains
We will go home singing our songs
We will go home across the mountains,


and the ending is

When the land is there before us
We have gone home across the mountains
We have gone home, we have gone home
We have gone home singing our songs

That's why people think that Hans Zimmer is not a good composer, look how much additional music: Nick Glennie-Smith, James Dooley, Trevor Morris. Rupert Gregson-Williams, Blake Neely, Lorne Balfe.
A good composer do the job without help, like Alan Silvestri, Christopher Young, Robert Folk....

Mrs. Matthews, I was interested in getting a copy of the original lyrics to the Song of Exile and I went to your website as you suggested to contact you but it stated you weren't accepting e-mails for the moment. Are you unable to post them in a public space? Thanks.

The lyrics given below for Song of the Exile by myself as given in Areinh's email are NOT my lyrics. They are something the poster of that email has created. If you wish to receive the correct lyrics to my Song of the Exile, you need to contact me via www.hallowquest.org.uk. Since my copyright situation is so difficult - and for information, Disney threatened to scrap the scene with my song from the King Arthur film entirely unless I signed over my copyright - I am happy to send these details to individuals by mail but I may not post them on line. I have recorded the original Gaelic version of the song (with the traditional Gaelic lyrics, though not the lyrics I wrote specially for this tune especially for the film) on a new album which will appear in 2009 called Earth's Own Heart with R.J.Stewart. Available from my website hopefully from Spring 2009 onwards.

I dont know if was a simple error or a coincidence to discover Hans Zimmer as a best composer but now I can say only one thing: NEVER another composer will be more good as him and that because his music express something, and now after a few years listening all days music from Hans Zimmer, I can say I recognize his style in each movies.

I dont know if a thank you from me can appreciate all your work but your music give me more great days, I listen your music everywhere, at my workplace or in free time, I tried as much as possible to buy your music and I found some albums...

Best regards for Zans Zimmer and all my appreciation

I love this album! All of them! is one of Zimmer's greatest pieces, up there with Journey To The Line and all his other greats. Now I'm sure Hans Zimmer is the best composer ever!
