MMichaels LOL!!! You have no idea about film musicFantastic score by Balfe.Best action score writer to come from RCP since Powell for sure .It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabinís score.<br>=======================<br><br><br>Well said! <br><br>Agreed.I've demanded for it to be removed a long time ago... Maybe in 10 years, who knows...RIP to a legend....<br><br>Just rewatched Coach Carter a few weeks back. It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabinís score.
Listening to Rabin's two powerful "basketball scores" - this one and Glory Road. In memory of the great Kobe! RIP, legend!Honestly man, I never understood this site's ratings either.For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!
Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfeís musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!
Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lol

It's funny how our tastes evolve, isn't it? A couple years ago, I had the audacity to call this score boring in one of the discussions here. Well, nowadays, I find it quite beautiful, I love Hans' instrumentation choices here, and it's right up there with The Last Samurai as one of my favorite Zimmer scores.

Truly sublime and melodious music! :) This stirring soundtrack totally stands on its own. But oh how I've craved for and expanded release for 15 years. This is such a rare and emotional masterpiece, and rightfully deserves to be more complete, so come on gentleman, its 2011...15 long years since the original release in 1995. I have seen the film a number of times, and loved the other poignant music variations! Especially the beautiful music during the raft scene when Laura Bowman tends to his wounds. And of course other lovely segments when she is traveling through Burma etc. I really Appreciate you guys reading this. I hope I'm not too unpopular for making a humble request :)

Wow! This music is straight from the heart, it deeply expresses what cannot be put into words. Why is it that so many people I have encountered over time, have not heard of this forgotten masterpiece. I am an avid soundtrack fanatic and truly appreciate quality creative music. And this unique score is one of my favorite finds of all time. Every track is moving and captivating, and after seeing the film just recently, it made me really hunger for more of the original score that unfortunately was not on the official CD release.

Greetings to whom it may concern. I am not too sure how often these posts are read. But I would just like to make a brief inquiry/request about Beyond Rangoon. Firstly, I am privileged to have the original 1995 score in my collection which is just sublime, and totally out of this world! But having seen the film a few times, I suddenly realized how much more rich, original, music is actually missing from this amazing soundtrack.

There are some other beautiful, stirring, variations from the film. And I have been yearning and hoping for an expanded more complete release of Beyond Rangoon. I am certain there are many devout Zimmer admirers out there who are just waiting and hoping for a 2010 release also. Itís seems almost sinful to leave out such lovely theme renditions from this rare PHENOMENAL score. Is this release probable?

Thanks for reading.

This music has such substance and depth to it, and a beautiful variety of melancholy themes
Which are utilized so well by lonely woodwind instruments and stirring vocals. Itís the most played soundtrack in my collection. The nature of this music never ceases to amaze me. Itís as though the score were from another world, other time. And so thought provoking and beautifully wistful. It defines so many elements for me and transcends the mind, I have been collecting film scores since I was 16, now aged 27 and still this score continues to captivate me like no other. Itís up there with Morriconeís the mission in my opinion. Outstanding effort Hans, if by some dark miracle you read this. I just want to say that I really appreciate the true quality of music you bring to life and the hard work you put into it. I have many of your great scores. And I hope in the future for an expanded release of Beyond Rangoon, thereís so many other great stirring pieces from the film.

This is one of the most beautiful Hans Zimmer soundtracks on the market. Even though it's a little hard to find, it's worthing every single penny. The last track it's simply magnificent. After my opinion, Zimmer is the best contemporary composer after John Williams.

Musique envoutante, magique, sublime! Sa meilleure BO selon moi, dommage que toutes les musiques du film ne se retrouvent pas dans l'album.
