2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?
I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!
Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feeling

I have come across a seller who claims to have the academy promo score for Narnia for sale. I don't think if he reffers to this version but if anyone is interested, then make haste to this place as the seller seems to have only one copy left

Extended edition of Narnia
coming in November 2006

"--This is an editorial about the upcoming release of "--The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - Special Extended DVD Edition"-- that Andrew Adamson mentioned on the audio commentary of the DVD.

With the announcement that there is, in the works, an Extended Edition of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in the works, possibly for release in November of 2006, I have many ideas for what I would do with the film. This is, by no means, a definitive list of additions, as I am sure there are more, and better ideas out there, but I just wanted to address a few things."--

Hey Antas! Can you confirm something for me please?

I have a copy of the official Special Edition 2 CD Narnia soundtrack release - the red cover version.

On the promo flyer on your link it says that the soundtrack is "--extended"--.

Can you tell me / us this if this is true?

The standard and extended releases have the same track times are the same for both CD's. I've even checked the encoded version using the Disney player that's on the CD?

Thanks!

Hello Lee,

You meant the CD+DVD version ?

It's not true. I don't have the single version but the tracklist/length of both are the same.

Lee reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-05 00:00:00
Hi,

Yes - standard = CD, Extended = CD/DVD.

So much for an "--extended"-- version then. :-(

Perhaps they thought it might be sucessful and planned to release the full score at that point - hence why it's the same version! Fingers crossed! :-)

Speaking of that Lion King bootleg, I'm still wondering why some of the tracks are encoded in mono. That's pretty darn annoying you know! ---D

Vastatosaurus Rex reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-03 00:00:00
They may, they usually release promos if the score is nominated for awards, so it is very much possible they may release a promo soon (like they did with Dinosaur, Atlantis, brother Bear....) Although I am surprised they didn't release a complete score with the release of the Lion King platinum DVD (I think the no SFX bootleg is also the recording sessions)

Constantine reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-02 00:00:00
Well, come to think about it Antas and Damien. You guys have just announced something which many people have been waiting for eversince they got thier hands on the commercial version and there is nowhere else they can find to search for it, save for the very place they first saw it. As far as I know no one can make comments but asking for the album itself. Unless you want to manualy delete the posts concerning trades, I think 'words' won't just help pushing people back.

Anyway, I have three questions that I hope you guys can clue me in. Firstly, I do understand what the role of 'Promo' albums usually is but 'Bootlegs' are illegal from the root. Though I think it is nice to enlist the Promo scores along with thier commercial albums, in a composer's discography, I see no reason for doing the same for Bootlegs unless you guys yourself want to open discussions such as the one we have here, about how to getting the score. Otherwise what's the point of mentioning things that maybe even the composers themselves never knew of its existance? The Bootlegs with Sound Effects are good examples of what I'm saying since if the composers really wanna show people thier music they won't certainly do so by offering a low quality music which is mixed with SFX. So why don't you guys just stick to official promos instead of fake ones?

Secondly, How can it come to pass that you guys can find a Recording Session for certain scores but can't find one for the other? I mean, Ok, King Arthur had one, Narnia has one but why, some others don't?

And my third question is how you guys find such items? They are not legal so eBay and Amazon are not the place where you need to look at. Do you contact the composers themselves? Or you do what you prohibit us from doing here yourself and get it via trade from others? ---)

Oh and at the end, please do take it easy now guys! I'm just curious about certain things and I'm not intending to move accusation on any of you. Thanks for info about Narnia.

Antas, Webmaster reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-02 00:00:00
1. We put bootlegs on our pages in order to have the most complete discography. moreover, that shows to the composers (or to the people who have the copyrights) what fans are looking/waiting for (yes composers come here regularly). Don't forget an official CD soundtrack could be released only because the bootleg exists and because many people are asking for a legal version (see what happened for Blade Runner, The Ring, Dark Crystal, Loch Ness, America...).

2. I don't know -- It may depend on people who worked on the score.
Don't think that getting a release like Narnia sessions is an easy thing ! It takes sometimes lot's of time and money in order to get rare (promo or bootleg) items.

3. Mainly trades or Ebay (Ebay : essentially for the Academy promos). Only A very few number of promos comes from the composer himself (unfortunately !)

Now, I'm just wondering if this is what Disney planned to release before as a Special Edition of the soundtrack. If memory serves correctly they were aimming to release a complete score for Narnia though the Special Edition soundtrack, eh?

Well Damien - if you feed us this news and provide excerpts for download we are of course going to ask for where we can get if from.

Yes I know it's a bootleg and not available to buy, but it must be *somewhere* as you have provided mp3 snippets!

If you hold out your hand with grain, we will feed from it!
