Any news about Hans Next project?Does Hans compose music for releasing as his own records? I wish he'll make someI think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"<br><br>p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...One last topic I want to cover for this score, and that's the references to past films. I've found quite a few new ones that may be interesting.<br><br>"Today We Hunt" - Reference to "Bumblebee" at the end of the track.<br><br>"History of Transformers" - Reference to "Bumblebee", the end of "Are You Ladiesman 217?", and a sort of rebuilding of the Autobot theme using it's main notes.<br><br>"Two Moons" - Contains the main 2 notes of "Decepticons" repeated through the entire track, and of course elements of "We Were Gods Once".<br><br>"Prime Versus Bee" - Contains the drum beat featured in "Optimus vs Megatron"<br><br>"Your Voice" - Reference to "Optimus", the escalation of notes featured in scenes where Optimus is almost defeated ("Optimus vs Megatron" and the beginning of "I Claim Your Sun"), the 3 notes of "We Were Gods Once" when Optimus is about to be killed, and of course "Arrival to Earth/There Is No Plan".<br><br>"Battlefield" - Basic notes of the end of "You're A Soldier Now" and the Autobot theme in the 3 note horn section.<br><br>"Did You Forget Who I Am" - Autobot theme plays in the build-up before the "You're a Soldier Now" reprise. (Also maybe a hint of "Skorponok" at the end?)<br><br>The rest has already been pointed out on this website.Bring Him Home and Future King are great
The show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what it’s like2049 is by Ben, confirmed.generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...<br><br>Second half of 1970-forever.@Ben: "Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either."<br><br>The original presentation, of 1994, is not very good to confess. They left out the score to emphasize the songs. However the latest launches "expanded score" and "Legacy Collection" (in my opinion) are among the best as Gladiator, the last Samurai,Prince of Egypt, House of Spirits, Rain Man,<br>Backdraft, regarding Henry,Beyond Ragoon, the Rock, King Arthur, Interstellar, Rush, At worlds End and the Dark Knight (The Collector's version). I like many themes by Hans, but when I come to head the organization factor of the albums most satisfactory these are some of the few that comes to mind.What's the involvement of EW in the Mermaid Suite? I always imagined it that way: Hans being responsible for the first part of the suite, the calmest, Geoff taking care of the piece that corresponds to the moment of the sirens attack and that Eric inserted the choir to finish the composition.
In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?
man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.

I've had the soundtrack ever since it came out. I must've listened to more than 50 times. It is addicting.

Simple put: The whole soundtrack is a masterpiece! A soundtrack I have been waiting for my whole life.

How would I know you, hans

Barbastella is the best composition you've ever made, Hans. My favourite part is the drums in the last 43 seconds. So awesome!

100/100 from here.

This is truly by far the best Batman score!! But I must say the 12 tracks on the cd release are just not enough. There is much more missing i'm sure. Please release an expanded version of Batman Begins, my current copy is getting worn out!!. = )

An absolute masterpiece I love Lasiurus so much and Ive already made a music video for it with footage from BATMAN BEGINS. I also agree with JON THE DON about making a sequel and I also agree with luke for making the sequel it would be so shit if this experience for remaking batman and changing the style of the score.

I certainly agree about Danny Elfmans Music and I loved this soundtrack. I cant go a few days without listening to a few selective tracks. I think you created a brilliant motion picture score. I myself am I batman fan and before the film came out I wanted to hear some versionms of the original. But I was blown away by the shear quality of this one. I mean Elfans was great but This was AMAZING. I actually haddenerd heard your name but when I researed on you I saw a mighty impressive selection on motion picture tracks to listen to and I was so impressed. Im only 16 by the way and wouldnt have heard your name sorry but I know your stuff know great work on BATMAN BEGINS and good luck.

The music is awsome and addictive i liked Molossus the best but now i prefer Lasiurus.
I hope Hans Zimmer does the soundtrack for the sequel.

Can you please release an expanded score for Batman Begins? The original is the best soundtrack I've bought, but I really want to hear more. Thank you.

Excellent! Pure genuis of a soundtrack. Because of the music and the new life given to Batman (thanks to Mr Nolan), I have seen it at least 12 times over the past week or so. Misters Zimmer and Newton - Howard, I congratulate you both and hope to hear your talents on the next Batman film.

I'm a huge batman fanatic.. back when i heard about them making a new batman franchise, i was shocked and real excited.. and when i heard hans zimmer's on board to score it, i was just blown away.. i instantly knew, this was the batman film worth seeing and waiting for.. and that this movie will turn out really great. And it did! When i finally saw the movie and heard hans and james' score, it was just perfect! Nolan made a right choice and I hope Hans' back to score the sequel.

Excellent~! It is the PERFECT Batman music, no matter what anyone else says, even if it is not the Danny Elfman style. I wish that an expanded score (preferably a promo) is released soon. Oh god MAY THE SCORE BE NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR! I hope then an expanded release will be there!!!!! *crosses fingers* <--:)

Hey there

This has probably been asked many times before but I just wondered if anyone knew at all if there either was a bootleg/exoanded etc release of this score or if one was even on the way. Its really really good. My email is ####
Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know if there is a bootleg release of this soundtrack in existence? The official CD we have is great, don't get me wrong. But there are several terrific themes and arrangments present in the movie but not on CD that I'd love to have. I understand that HZ and JNH were going for a particular feel with their official soundtrack, but I think fans of the score and the film would love to own the rest of the music!

BTW, a bootleg or second soundtrack release would make the ULTIMATE Christmas present...

does anyone know the 'metalish type' of music in the TV SPOT trailer where Bruce Wayne says: "--A guys that dresses up like a bat clearly has issues?!"-- I've been looking for that metalish music for months now-- any help would be great-- thank you!!
