You're saying there's a chance that the Affleck is Deathstroke rumor is legit? ;)Have to agree with you here. The action music, for the most part, is pretty fun when Junkie lets loose with the electronics (Maximum Effort, Twelve Bullets, Watership Down). I'll even say there are some genuinely pretty moments scattered throughout (Liam Neeson Nightmares, Face I would Sit On).<br><br>Unfortunately the biggest downfall of this soundtrack is a lot of the underscore. Junkie's strength definitely lies in his themes, but utilizing them is definitely not his strong suit. I would say half of the music functions well, while the rest kinda falls flat. And the biggest problem; the drums. The 80's style synth works amazing but is overshadowed by the Mad Max drums and strings.<br><br>Imo, JXL needs to leave his comfort zone and write for dramatic films. His string writing is some of the best out there, and his action music works when he doesn't fall into the same routine drums and pounding.Yeah well I just got through my first listen and I am kind of disappointed too... I feel like Maximum Effort and Twelve Bullets are the main two stand-out action tracks, but they're on the very short side and did not blow me away like Blood Bag, Brothers in Arms, Chapter Doof, The Bog, go on and on... Maybe Man in a Red Suit can be up there too, but honestly I did not hear a lot of memorable tracks first time round... Might change obviously, just my initial reaction. However, I would have preferred to have a lot more music from Junkie and less Tarantino-like 'soundtrack'. I mean, I don't know how the existing songs play out in the film as I haven't seen it yet, but I could have done without some of those songs. And I don't know if it's my headophones (I hope not :) ) but it sounds like the album is mastered too loud so sometimes there is clearly some distortion/clipping going on. Could be intentional but it kind of starts to bother me. I'm going to try some other sound systems to verify this.in "Is She With You?" at around 2:30, does anyone hear similarities to The Dark Knight trilogy music?This is a one star score... So disappointing :(
I went to his first concert a year and half ago in London and it was amazing. i wish to see him playing in Dubai or EGYPT under the pyramids.<br>i will definitely attend either the Dublin or the Vienna one.Because the OST is ready for a while, and WaterTower was probably stocking its files online on the sourcecode of the website or something, and someone found the correct address to download them...<br><br>There's ALWAYS someone smarter...<br><br>I don't have it, though ! I'd like to ! But yeah the track is real. lolHybrid, do you say that because you THINK it is legit, or because someone official confirmed it to you? In the latter case, how is it even possible that the OST leaked so long before the release? Did you get any explanation?Stop torturing yourselves, it IS legit...The OST may not be available however that doesn't mean it's not registered with the RIAA. Use your brain.
It's exactly the same duration on the album. Maybe it's not a reason but it doesn't look like a fake. It might be."Shazam and YouTube confirmed its legit."<br><br>How would they know it's legit if the OST isn't even available?Considering USA can't view the leaked track due to copyright claims, I'm going to say it's a legit track.Of course it's legit. Why are people still doubting it. Shazam and YouTube confirmed its legit.Well apparently the track leaked is legit...
I see now that on IMDB pro are listed Brian Tyler and John Paesano as well... I love Brian Tyler but I think it is not going to happen and Desplat will do it. Still interresting idea I must say. Thank you for replying Hybrid :-)No idea...Hey Hybrid, on IMDB Junkie is listed as composer of Godzilla 2 for 2018, is it mistake or will he score it? I thought that Edwards composer is Alexandre Desplat. Still it would be cool to see Tom create score for King of the Monsters, but I think it is not true.If it is real it sounds insane lolJust listened to that leak of "Is She With You" on Reddit. It sounds 100% legit (although the mixing isn't that great)

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.
