Well now, when you heard the whole soundtrack, you can CLEARLY distinguish whose track they belong to, and it's really exciting because it is that obvious.<br><br>So John Powell did:<br>-1. I Remember Everything<br>-3. Converging In Athens<br>-5. A Key To The Past<br>-6. Berlin<br>-9. Paddington Plaza<br>-11. Las Vegas<br>-15. Let Me Think About It<br><br>Powell's tracks diffirentiate themselves by having much more organic mixing, better writing,and when it comes to electronic sound, it has this "whole,full, and crisp" quality to it and it is good, THOUGH not much new material ( i think the one heard in Athens, is something new)<br><br>WHILE Buckley, on the other hand, he basically put his "watermark" with his two high-ascending string notes,which is tiresome, THOUGH he supplies a lot of variations of Powell's theme, it feels generic, boring, the mixing is hollow, and the electronic is that Generic awfull thing we are deared to acknowledge as RCP's sound. ( Yes, Powell WAS from RCP, i get it,but, so was Lincoln from Republican :P)<br><br>BUT ANYHOW, sadly, this soundtrack can't hold its candle to SUPREMACY and ULTIMATUM, no Tangiers, no Goa. But it's not disappointing, because you know what it is. And it's such a grace to having a new Powell score in these kind of days.Last August, to be exact :)Yep a while back actually ! I almost forgot about it ! :PHad it been announced previously? Totally missed that!Well, I knew it all along, so... ;)
The trailer for Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall confirmed that Ramin Djawadi will do the score! Somebody on this board will be VERY happy! :-)Yea I already have it, Meet John Connor is the best3m15 Still After Us1m04 1984Nobody seems to have mentioned anything about this, so I'll post it here. Here is the list of cues in this leaked version:<br><br>1m01 Better Days<br>1m02 Meet John Connor<br>1m03 Work Camp Speech<br>1m04 [no title]<br>1m05 I Volunteer<br>1m06 Reese Going Back<br>2m09 Reese Arrives<br>2m10 Griffith Park<br>2m11 Alley Confrontation<br>2m12A Meet Sarah Connor<br>2m12B Meet Pops<br>2m12C Flashback #2<br>2m14 T1000 On The Prowl<br>2m14B Old Not Obsolete<br>3m15 [no title]<br>3m16 1997 or 2017<br>3m17 Alcove<br>3m18 Sarah-Reese Into TDD<br>3m20 Sarah-Reese Drop In<br>3m21 Sarah's Story<br>4m22A Hospital Room<br>4m22B Time Travelers<br>4m23 John Shows Up<br>4m24 Guardian Shows Up<br>4m25 It's Really Me<br>4m26 Family-Pops Shoots<br>4m27 I Am More<br>4m28 Hospital Fight<br>5m29 Cyberdyne<br>5m30 Memories<br>5m31B Hatching The Plan<br>5m32 If You Love Me You Die<br>6m33 Bus Ride<br>6m34 Guardian On The Move<br>6m35 Golden Gate<br>6m37 Interrogation<br>6m38 Helicopter Chase<br>6m39 Cyberdyne Lobby<br>6m40 Come With Me<br>7m41 Come With Me Pt.2<br>7m42 Fight<br>7m43 Sacrifice<br>7m44 What If I Can't<br>7m45 End Credits<br>8m46 System Online<br><br>The suites were not included in the leak but the leak did confirm that the following tracks from the OST are suites:<br><br>-Fate And Hope<br>-Sarah And Kyle<br>-Sarah Kicks Ass<br>-John Connor<br>-Guardianship
Hey Hybrid, what's with some be Complete Score Sites here:)Right, he has, but I guess Lorne has done it so much in his own stuff (and Hans has, in some ways, backed off from that approach a just a bit) that now it sounds more Lorne-like than Hans-like when I hear it. Especially in the Volvo thing. If Hybrid were to say Lorne co-wrote that, I'd believe it wholeheartedly.Hans has been doing that since The Thin Red Line!Don't wait for a release. Not to be a spoil-sport, but it won't happen. What they gave us is what we're getting. That said, so many fans have recreated the film version that we can all be satisfied, really.<br><br>Now if only fans would do a solid edit of "Batman Chased"... still waiting for that one, 4 years on... lolSo this just hit me...the first 40 or so seconds of the full Harvey Dent suite are basically HZ's two-note Batman theme, in JNH French horn style. <br><br>It's a tragedy the full suite wasn't what we got on album. Beautiful stuff. I do feel like TDKR was missing a bit of its heart without JNH, to this day. HZ's "Dark Knight" theme has its own kind of beauty, but JNH has a special touch, you know?
It was in a cue list that got leaked.Because they made dozens of versions of it and Hans' final one is the one released on the OST.<br><br>The film version was assembled by music editors with stems of other cues at the very last minute.Has anyone ever explain why the movie version of "No Time For Caution" is not in any commercial album?<br><br>I am still waiting for a future release.i think hans started the approach (da vinci code did it too) and then lorne learned how to do it and now does it a lot himself. remember too hans was a producer on 13 hours and terminator, so maybe he suggested that approach to lorne, and then lorne suggested it to him right back for the volvo stuff.Something I've been wondering, and maybe Hybrid has an answer... Both Hans and Lorne have done the "take 2 to 4 notes and make a crescendo for three minutes" out of it. Hans did it in "A Dark Knight" and "Time," while Lorne did it in Terminator Genisys and 13 Hours. <br><br>Hans did it again for the Volvo campaign prologue, and Lorne was producer here. So my question is, who's "guiding" this style? Is it more Hans or more Lorne influencing Hans? Just something I've wondered.

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?


al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02

Does anyone know where you can get the sad piano music they played in the contender. If you watch the first episode of the contender series 1 on youtube you can hear it. (Its played right at the start where stallone says "life is a fight"?

Hans Zimmer is scoring the History Channelís upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnettís reality show The Contender.


Ds2012-12-31 17:24:56
Woooow 2013 will definitely be a great year for us! There's an extract of this series at /watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S42szZFGmZw#! , the music is pretty beautiful - don't know if it's from Zimmer or not...


Jimmer2012-12-31 17:55:02
Wow, that's awesome. Any new music from Zimmer is exciting and now getting a plethora of new music from the composer next year is really exciting.

@Hybrid: Do you know if the music from said documentary, The Bible, will be released officially on CD or something?


Macejko2012-12-31 18:27:23
The series itself looks shitty though. Cheap and poorly directed.


Jack2012-12-31 19:15:00
A preview of the score is available on Youtube, on the official channel of the series (The Nativity scene).

The Main Theme is not by Hans Zimmer.
Is been composed by Steve Jablonsky, Zimmer is just the score producer.
