A Celebration? It's actually on youtube now.Got it. I assumed as much for the first 3. Thanks.hahahaha ... crack, sorry. Well so far there is no news of anything. Only the video that one track and one with Dave, but it's a preview.<br>I'm not sure how to get news on this, I really would like to get it hahaha.Isabel Suite = Isabel the Strong<br>Thadeous Suite = Thadeous<br>The Quest Suite = Let Us Quest!<br><br>End credits is probably ripped from the film.> Fair enough, but I know for a fact that Steve was inspired by Harry Potter because of the complete score track "Tavern Fighting (Part 1)". The end of that track has a direct reference to The Chamber of Secrets theme from the second film.<br><br>Nice catch. Those are very similar.<br><br>Btw, I have some "expanded" version of the score, which seems to be identical to the complete score on this site, aside from the fact that it's missing the last 4 tracks. Do those have equivalents in the regular release?
Yes, I was referring to A Celebration. "It's out there" as in "it can be obtained unofficially". Were you referring to the Sia track? That is on Bleeding Fingers', but you can find it on the bleeding fingers page.<br>it also doesn't look like planet eart: a celebration has a release :(Well, it's out there. Looks like no official release?> He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Today's status says it's his "first published film score". That sounds like awesome news. I really hope this starts a trend...<br><br>I imagine having your own label-thing helps for stuff like expanded releases and sheet music?can you produce track for me?
How do I become your apprentice? tremblayliam@yahoo.comGreenland is so good!<br><br>Nice mix between kids choir, electronics and orchestra, remind me to San Andreas a little.Never listen the complete score, so i can't comment about thatFair enough, but I know for a fact that Steve was inspired by Harry Potter because of the complete score track "Tavern Fighting (Part 1)". The end of that track has a direct reference to The Chamber of Secrets theme from the second film.I GOT HIS AUTOGRAPH!!!!!!
Dark Phoneix is more playable than Dunkirk, more thematic in my opinion, and don't agree with that opinions saying are the same, specially when Dark Phoenix has more in common with the early 2010s and some of the 90s score by Zimmer.I don't find the similarities between Playful Secrets and Home Alone, mostly the track (and the most part of the score) reminds more to Danny Elfman than John Williams, even Goldsmith, which his synthesizers sounds, are pretty unique, much more than Jablonsky in this score, but i give that sounds like a 80s synthesizer.Please Inception be next!!<br>There are tons of music in the film that didn't make it to the soundtrack.That's great. I personally like Dark Phoenix more than dunkirk, I feel pretty good visiting Xperiments.<br><br>The funny thing (and I can identify with your anecdote), is that every time I do homework with my son, I put music on him (not just Hans), but he also gets to recognize just by listening to a fragment or the main theme, a example is le petit prince, the lion king and the hobbit., among others recognizes them. He's only 4 years old and I'm funny because he asks me for music to do his battles.<br>quite an experience hahaI have a feeling Hans doesnít even know about this release lol. Itís so lazily done. I hope the packaging makes up for it tho. <br><br>Iím crossing my fingers for Dunkirk but I donít think itíll ever happen. That

Collin, if you like X3 I'd recommend Klaus Badelt's music (particularly The Time Machine & The Promise) and of course, pretty much anything by Hans Zimmer. Start with Gladiator for example, or the score tracks on The Lion King. Also some of John Powell's music is similar to what he wrote for X3, though not quite as epic...Ice Age: The Meltdown is similar but more on the happy side rather than the dark side...

I'm not sure but I am probibly the youngest person at 17 to sumbit a comment but I was amazed by this soundtrack entirely. I like alot of instrumental pieces but the soundtrack itself I believe embodied the whole x-men movie perfectly. The intenesity of the music rift in Gene's house I thought was amazing, and the topper the final battle seen music was mind-numbingly BEA-utiful. I am just begining to apreciate the instrumental music genre so If anyone can help me out and tell me of some more great composers and tracks I probibly will be seen submitting more in the future.

I don's own this soundtrack yet by I will be purchasing this, however I will be purchasing it asap.

I just saw the movie Saturday and i went in very skeptcal I heard bad things about it from peeps on XBOXlive so i was like ok let me see for myself and i was very speechless the sound from what i heard was very very good i loved the music when Xavier was getting flame boiled but i tell my friends and now i can tell the worldwide web dont expect comic book movies to be in part like the comic books u will be very dissappointed but after i saw this movie i saw that it was just a story based on the peeps in the comic so i understood why it took a diffrent path and to me that makes it better.

** a little spoiler inside **

Hi there dear Score-Lovers,

I saw X3 and hear the score. I think X2 (film) is better, cause it takes his time to develope. But the score is bombastic + epic. "Phoenix rises" is the best part and cue. And I hope there will be more episodes (part 4, part 5) with more epical music.
Hope Mystique, Jean Grey and Xavier came back in part 4.

@Nautilus: Yes, the intro is very different. His best score since Face/Off (my opinion).

Nautilus reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-27 00:00:00
Dark I saw X3.My thoughts:

the film it's very irregular.the rythm in the first half is bad.But all the action in "alcatraz" is great and epic.

The same thing about the music.Is mixed very low in the first half of the movie,but it gets better in the second half. Alcatraz attack, Phonix rises and the last stand sounds very good and powerfull in the movie (even with the fx sounds).

Some cues are diferent in the movie than in the soundtrack.Specially the main title music.The main titles music is very diferent in the movie.It sounds more powell than in the cd.Longer and with more percusive elements and more powell strings.I WANT THIS VERSION!!!

Great job by powell with so uninspired material

Dark reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-25 00:00:00
the main theme heard in the beginning of the movie (SPOILERS : after the flashbacks sequences) is different than the one on the cd ("bathroom title")

I really wished to hear the Phoenix theme alot more

Dark.The main theme after the flashback sounds like what?

Dark reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-25 00:00:00
well nautilus , how to say : seems longer , more aggressive in percussions and different in the melody even if it keeps the same structure
be careful to have a first cd listening then watch the movie you will see.

ZED reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-25 00:00:00
Hmmm.... This score the more i listen to it annoys me more and more. There's just a lack of theme apart from Pheonix's theme and though the score is loud, its not that exciting or memorable. I'm a big fan of Powell but i was a tad let down by this score. The power is there, but not the themes. I'm just not a fan of loud action music that has no theme in it, just loud bursts from brass and strings with no direction does nothing for my enjoyment. Definelty the best X-Men score though. :)

Dark reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-25 00:00:00
by the way , i got an anser for varese and yes the track 26 on back cover has an error of running time ; so the first cd's are collectors! lol

I have "burned" My x3 I will see the diference..
but I's diferent but still is powell's heroic march theme.Isn't it????

is the music well mixed?im curious about if Whirpool of love have a stellar moment in the movie?

Zed then you must stop to play this cd :P
Are you the same ZED from the forum?

X3 is the second best powell score!!!!

Dark reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-25 00:00:00
nautilus : ah ah yes for "whirlpool of love" , a moment you won't forget ;)
and yeah it still the heroic powell theme but the melody is a little different and the instrumentations too.
give me your opinion after seeing the movie:)

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-25 00:00:00
I think that John Ottman should listen to this score before he ruins Superman Returns completely. :)

This is definitely the best score this year, but I still hope that Zimmer will compose a better score for PotC2.

The Phoenix theme in both tracks is just great, it works in the movie sooooooo well I think it's longer in the movie.

Great work by John Powell but I couldn't catch the X-Men theme is it the one in the 2nd track.

Dark reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-24 00:00:00
for those who owned the cd album , have you noticed that the back cover contains an error? :
track 26 phoenix rise is credited with a runin time of 6:30
and the cue is only 4:20 long.

"dark phoenix tragedy" : best track of the year at this time for me : the phoenix theme is just dramatic as hell!

Rogue reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-22 00:00:00
Its a great score with very impressive choral segments, although im not sure about all the separate tracks when they blend effortlessly into each other.
This score works best as a whole and the main theme is fantastic. It almost seems as though the music X-Men always should have had.
I own Kamen's and Ottman's scores but Kamen's theme wasn't too good and Ottmans wasn't dramatic enough.
John Powell = Problem Solved.

Gareth Williams reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-21 00:00:00

I love this score :D

"Dark Phoenix's Tragedy" is an amazing track, truly awesome chorals.

Not sure why Powell's CDs always have strings of tracks that lead into each other though... especially when the next track is only 30 seconds long. Would it be so hard to merge them together?

"Phoenix Rises" is the most epic cue Powell has ever written, I can't wait to see how it looks on screen :D

Nautilus reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-21 00:00:00
I has heard the whole score.
And Some days listening it I think it's one of the most greats superheroes scores since batman.
A lot better than Spiderman1/2 and One of the powell's bests scores(with Paycheck, Supremacy, Mr smith and Robots)

I love the fact that everyone here is complaining like a bunch of scared hens over an album none of them actually have yet.

Were you all born way - or do you have to take pills in the morning to be these dense?

I agree wih Feared and Zimmerian... good but not so good!
Alfred I know you (remember about me?)... You love Golden and Silver Age... and composers who make all (or a lot of) work alone (composition, orchestration, condction etc...)... So I understand what you say...
Anyway, Powell is not so bad... maybe in the future you'll like him more... for now... the big composers are others... (Williams, Newton-Howard, Beltrami, Silvestri, etc...) ;-)

Zimmerian reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-18 00:00:00
I think I'm with Feared on this one. It's a good score but not that good to blow you away.

It's a good score, but not as good as Ottman's X2.
Track 26 is 4:21 not 6:29

Nautilus reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-16 00:00:00
A very good score.
But the first half (as Ice age 2) is too weak.And the second half is too loud.
It's not so "powellish" like I was hoped.Sadly.
3 stars.

From the sample clips, these sound like amazing scores. I love the xmen films and I think this is going to be the best.
