I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.
Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronicsSo I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter egg

Hey,

to all wandering about the song at the end of the movie - i think it is the Beastie Boys (transitions) song. I might be wrong though...

--== THE LAST SONG AT THE END OF THE WEATHERMAN ==--

Hi Hans, I have read all the comments in regards to this song in particular, yet I don't see any answer on any of them. Are you emailing the answers or what's going on?

Please be kind and share the knowledge.

I've been waiting to find out the song at the end of the credits and even in the movie. It's a very tight groove that's just irresistible. Every time I watch the movie and this part comes out I'm going crazy. And it's not the song from Izzy Top, which many people think it is.

Anyone, pleeeasse, Crustation came very close but no cigar. I think I need to call Hans meself.

chris reply Replies: 0 || 2008-01-25 00:00:00
quick question for Hans--

the song during the credit has exactly the same sample/melody from a 1996 Crustation song "Purple" from their "Bloom" album (Crustation was a trip-hop project with a group of producers and a female singer named Bronaugh Slevin).

just wondering Hans... where did you find that sample? it's the one that goes

AB-Ab-Ab-----Ab-Gb

and sounds a bit like a Wurlitzer electric piano or a Rhodes?

Thanks for any info you can provide!

huge fan (and no, I'm not affiliated with the band... just dying to know!)
Chris

I can say that this is the best Zimmer soundtrack of 2005. I really love it. It should be really released as a official CD. The songs are really wonderful. To be honest, I am trully surprised that the music is composed by Hans Zimmer.

it's weird, i've been looking for the song (reggae flavor) and it's not iggy pop cuz it has a slower tempo, no words just plain ambient vibe.

if someone can clarify this and tell me the artist it will be much appreciated.

thanks :)

Big Fan-
Is the main theme based on other music? It reminds me of some thing i heard years back the lyrics at the of the piece that (I think) said; "Don't Hid the Sun". Just curious.
thx
