@Morgan Joylighter. Amen brother!@Jewen<br><br>The tracks that the Spider-Man theme appears on are:<br><br>1. New Recruit<br>2. Standoff<br>3. Civil War<br>4. Larger Than Life<br>5.Catastrophe<br><br>It's six notes. Bum bum bum! Bum bum bum! You'll know it when you hear it.Could you please let me know the next time (if/when) he will be in Atlanta or the US?Please,<br><br>Wich track of the album have the Spider Theme?For the Blu-ray, did someone saw cameras on stage in Wembley ?<br><br>
absolutely beautifulno i think its rubbish.This new theme in Clash, Cap's Promise and some others sounds exactly like Basil Poledouris's Under Siege 2 Dark Territory main theme. For example track Casey On War I (01:47 - 01:57).Never thought I'd see the day where Henry Jackman was a big enough name to use to sell albums. It seems only yesterday he was still the RC baby who secretly wrote one of the best cues of Zimmer's career (IMO) in "Up Is Down" from PotC:AWE. And now he's all grown up and scoring films that are outperforming Zimmer's at the box office. Can't say he doesn't deserve it, nobody but Powell has ever come through Zimmer's pipeline with a better sense for orchestra and blending traditional symphonic and electronic elements. He's a genius. Just wish he would get to write more full-bodied melodic themes. When he does it (Monsters vs Aliens and Winnie The Pooh spring to mind) the results are absolutely stunning.Thank Lorne, not Hans!
I love soundtrack Father & Son. Its beautiful & peaceful. I love it. Thanks Hans<br><br>I also like the soundtrack of Interstellar Film. Good JobI heard the entire soundtrack and I have a lot of things to say.<br>The Positives:<br>1. Jackman cutting down on the electronic elements and focusing more on a good old-fashioned orchestral style. It resembles his work in X-Men: First Class than The Winter Soldier.<br><br>2. The new themes are pretty damn good. The themes for Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Zemo are fantastic. I have complaints, but I’ll save that for later.<br><br>3. The Civil War Theme is borderline perfection.<br><br>4. The action cues don’t drag on, nor do they go by very quickly.<br><br>5. Even if they don’t appear often, I love the little nods to the Winter Soldier and Cap themes.<br><br>The Negatives:<br>1. Tracks such as “Consequences” “Revealed” and “Fracture” don’t add much for me.<br><br>2. Despite not seeing the film, the track “The Tunnel” sounds 100% different then the clip I saw. And it isn’t as good.<br><br>3. A severe lack of musical coherency. But then again, I should have expected this.  Ignoring the fact that Brian Tyler’s Iron Man 3 theme, Christophe Beck’s Ant Man theme, and Alan Silvestri’s Captain America theme are not used, Jackman sparingly uses his own themes (Winter Soldier and Cap) and doesn’t even bring back his own themes for Black Widow and Falcon. Seriously, that Falcon theme was awesome.<br><br>4. A massive lack of development of new themes. With the exception of the Civil War and Zemo themes, the new themes, as much as I love them, are not developed. They’re pretty much motifs. I was hoping to get tracks completely dedicated to Spider-Man and Black Panther, but sadly, I didn’t. Once again, I like them, but they aren’t developed enough.<br><br>5. The Spider-Man theme is good, but it sounds a lot like Han Zimmer’s. Still good though.<br><br>Overall, I really like this soundtrack. It has its ups and it has its downs, but it is still very well made. Despite the underdeveloped themes, and the lack of returning ones, Jackman has delivered an intense, heroic, and surprisingly emotional musical score. I can’t whether or not where it ranks with all of the scores in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I enjoy better than the scores for Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant Man. So far, it’s under The Avengers, Captain America, and The Winter Soldier. Hopefully after I see the film, I will find a larger appreciation for it. Overall, A- <br><br>Favorite Tracks:<br>1. Standoff<br>2. Civil War<br>3. Cap’s Promise<br>4. Lagos<br>5. Larger Than Life<br>6. New Recruit<br>7. Clash<br>8. Zemo<br>9.  The Tunnel<br>10. Ancestral Call<br><br><br><br>*Note: Can someone tell me what the hell the Iron Man theme is?I've always had this presumption...again, are you talking about the album version? because that (annoyingly) gutted the full track <br>Maybe its just that recurring motif in The Causeway that I like so much(which is IMO pretty unique and I wish it came back to Civil War somehow), or that it works so well for the scene<br>But I too think its one of the more powerful pieces on the full soundtrack<br><br>However I will admit that its not easily accessible and that I understand why some cant stand to listen to it<br>But that doesnt make it objectively bad <br><br>Now that I listen again, the Spiderman theme does get a lot of highlight in the airport fight cue "Standoff".
I would love to have a Blu-ray of this amazing show!!I really hope they are doing it.<br>Was at the Munich show last week and it was incredible! Thanks Hans for your wonderful music!!Thanks for the answer Jetinha. Although I expect that the Spider Man theme will stand out of soundtrack, just like "The Smithsonian" on The Winter Soldier soundtrack. Anyway, I hope that in the film it would sound interesting.It's literally a combination of the Zimmer trumpet fanfare, the closing measure of Brian Tyler's Iron Man Theme, and the Elfman swirly strings. It kind of works. It's ALL OVER the middle section of the soundtrack, introduced in "New Recruit."@KL. LOL. <br><br>The Causeway is a waste of sonic space and I'm sorry for your ears.<br>Although Falcon's theme is solid. It actually does appear in little snips in Civil War.I would like to thank Maestro Zimmer for his incredible show in my home city Gdansk. Poland LOVES YOU!!!!

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?


al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02
I doubt he actually conducted it


tristan2014-08-19 23:46:25

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 Channel’s upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnett’s 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.
