Can confirm: am dead.Jesus! Two Powell albums in less than a month. What a time to be alive. :O<br><br>So glad this is finally getting a release!Meh, I'm a "good" guy.<br><br>I prefer RO to Solo.<br><br>I did not say that the themes are from Giacchino or Williams or Powell I talk about themes of the score (regardless of who the authors are).<br><br>I'm also not "measuring dicks", Powell always has more points with me than Giacchino anyway.<br><br>I honestly did not like the theme written by WILLIAMS for Han and I can not equate it with the others in the franchise. It is disappointing.<br><br>And John's score, unfortunately, is a little paler than Rogue One's (since I can not mention the name Giacchino, as I'll be comparing the two). As much as I agree that the quality of the film is a factor to be considered, I do not believe the music is bad. It is not. I liked the music. Mainly the sequences of action. But it is very little for SW and for Powell "writing a SW score". I expected more. I'm disappointed and I hope HTTYD 3 is as good as its predecessors.@Olive: Caricature villians, really?<br><br>Krennic has a theme similar to that of the Empire, but being an arrogant character, his theme is more exaggerated, for the character<br><br>You make laugh with the march of Vader (is HIS theme, for god's sake)<br><br>And yeah, I prefer Rogue One over Solo, not only the movie.Don't forget in your calculation of "measuring dicks" between Giacchino & Powell, that Giacchino had a good film to score.<br><br><br>Powell did not...<br><br><br>He did a wonderful job despite what he was given to score... lol
Rogue One has several caricature moments that make me want to laugh at Giacchino's naivety, but there is no denying that the material is a million of times more memorable than what we heard in Solo. RO has themes. A recognizable theme for Jyn, a silly theme for the villains, a beautiful one for the surrender of the rebels in the end, a silly march for Vader, but manages to point out the moments of the score. Not here. I'm trying to discern the theme for Han and the Chewie theme.<br><br>This made me very disappointed because I was very happy for Powell's appointment. The score is not bad, far from it. The problem is that I expected so much more. HTTYD will be my "medicine". :PIm actually liking Powell's Solo theme better than Williams' theme...Edmund is probably dead from bliss, because this is a mighty fine score. I gave it only one listen so far, but I haven't enjoyed Powell this much in years.Great!! Very big Powell fan!!!More Powell !
Yes, music from seasons 1 & 2...It is on the original album : the last 2 minutes of "Woad to Ruin".Is this for both seasons ? Balfe shows a very diverse writing style within this show .It would be interesting if this style was used in Mission ImpossibleWhy never ? <br>He dislikes the saga or not interested ? I'm curious.Does anyone know why "Knight's March" is not in the original album and if there is a extended edition that has this cue?<br><br>
Rogue One was last minute change on Giacchino. I would like to hear Alexandre Desplat score to make a correct analysis from both scores. Besides that and with the little time, Giacchino's score is good, in the same style from maestro Williams. <br>Solo score is more different. Maestro Williams wrote the main theme and more cues, but what make the score different is Powell. He adapts Solo theme, and some of themes the original trilogy, but he puts him own stamp. Definitely is a Star Wars Score but with Powell stamp. Something Giacchino, maybe for the time, did not develop.<br>The film, well, i will watch on DVD.graciasWhile I always liked this score, it wasn’t until recently (when I revisited the film and album) that I realized how amazing it really is. There is still nothing that tops “Evacuating London” or the “Aslan” theme in terms of modern fantasy material. Each of the themes are brilliantly interconnected with each other, but stand on their own as well. I do wish there something a bit more distinctive for the White Witch, but that’s a small complaint.<br><br>The only other score that really reminds me of this (in terms of the string writing and piano material) is “Winters Tale” by Rupert. Also a pretty solid fantasy score.I LOVE IT!!They kept the volume of the music so low in the movie, while rouge ones was jacked up and used as a center piece rather than side music like they did for John. Johnson piece is far better,  it they gave it a back seat <br>

Anyone can answer what was the role of Don Harper in Saya's Love, if Don wrote the entire cue himself or arranged some parts?

What an amazing score. Thematic, heroic, action-packed and punched up with subtle, yet still noticeable japanese influences (some parts reminded me of Joe Hisaishi). Love it. The world needs more Mancina.

Where can I find a sheet music for Saya's Courage/Fear? You know, the sad one that is being played while Kai is carrying Saya to The Place Where It All Began (at the end of the anime). I would like to learn it, I think it's wonderful. Thanks for helping. Bye

Thanks to Mark Mancina for his work, his truly gifted. The music really brought the magic to the picture. I can hear some inspirations from John Williams in his work, but he has his own style. I hope to hear more music like this in anmie movies and series in the future.

Blood+ is one of my favorites animes and one with a great soundtrack. My favorite track is the aria "Diva", a very sad yet wonderful song. One of Mark Mancina's best works.
