Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: <br><br>Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)<br>Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)<br>Wonderland (Mark Theme)<br><br>Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.Some credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud: Flashback, and Flying Battle<br><br>Sadly no credits for Pieter A. Schlosser that I've been able to find...
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite. <br><br>It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.<br><br>I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door. <br><br>Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;<br><br>"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.<br><br>Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)Poor Edmund thinks disagreeing is having a go !thought this page was about crawl and the music by Aruj and Steffen????they did a great job and the film was fun.
Been a while since one of Balfe's paid (or unpaid?) shills had a go at me. I'm almost nostalgic. :pEdmund maybe listen and watch the show first before being negative about it?Nice strawmanning there MikealTypical Edmund response!!<br>Balfe doesn’t always write the most amazing scores but when he does it’s the best.if Balfe was only “good enough” why do the world top directors want to work with him ????????<br>Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time.Balfe seems to choose projects that don’t always require big melodies all the time.Zaras a girl and I agree with Edmund there is some sine signals and noise in the upper register that is noticeable in some cues. But that's the nature of the media it was recorded on. <br><br>You could use a spectral repair tool and non-destructive noise removal tool to fix them, such as those found in iZotope RX<br>
so only you can hear it eh? Zaralyth? that you? lolWhile I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)Has anyone noticed a high-pitched whining in the background of some tracks? It's particularly bad in the mid-section of "Witt in Brig/Tall and Quintard", from about 4 minutes onwards. It's such a high frequency that I bet a lot of people wouldn't hear it (including the QA team at LLL, I guess), but I can and it's really debilitating.Yeah it's an underwhelming choice for me. Balfe feels like the guy you get when you want "good enough", or when you need a score turned over in a really short time. Doesn't speak to much ambition on the showrunners' part when it comes to the music in this series. I'm sure it won't be bad, but I doubt it will be amazing.Heh, if it's anything like the 1994 score, then you'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

This is just a rehash of the Gladiator CD and the "More music from the movie". If you have those already, avoid this. If you don't have any, get this. (What a waste of a release that could have been a "complete score")

Hans Zimmer you're the right guy for every type of score. From The Lion King to THe Prince of Egypt and for epic scores just like this one :D You are the best out there. No competition because you are so original and have created your own style. I really love the mixes you make between orchestra and synths. You are so talented. Now its time to go for the big oscars. I was disappointed when The Thin Red Line didn't make it to the top, but I'm sure that in the nearby future you give us yet again a wonderfull score to enjoy. For me the best scores you've ever produced are The Lion King, Prince of Egypt, Spirit, The Rock, Gladiator, Crimson Tide &-- King Arthur. So Huge with great orchestral writing thanks to MR. ZIMMER. Keep it up for all the work you've produced till now and hope that the new Year 2006 will be the year to remember --)))

I absolutely love the score to this film, but what is the point of this anniversary release? There's nothing new on here except the packaging. I was expecting some new liner notes, maybe a behind the scenes look at the score (something that adds on to the composer feature on the original DVD release), maybe some more unreleased material.

Get this version if you don't already own the score, but otherwise there's no need to buy this particular release.

i loved gladiator and every time i see it its just as thought it were the first time i love the music it really helped to make the movie what it was that being a glorious triumph in cinimatography and musical presentation

I only want to say that i think this is one of the best soundtracks of all times, and i'm sure that it's cause those fantastic mellodies come deep from the hearth, and are made with lot of sentiment. I bought both CDs and i will listen to them like the first time for the rest of mi life.

It's not every day that you can say that one piece of music can inspirate you like 'honor him' does: Wonderfull, lovely, really deep and sublime.

I just tracked Hans Zimmer down today because his "--Zoosters Breakout"-- on Madagascar was one of the most compelling pieces of music that I have heard in a long time. Have been listening to a lot of symphonies lately and am hoping that this will turn into one. It is fabulous.
