It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.
Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !

How does "The Eggs Hatch" have "vocalists"?

Lambegue reply Replies: 0 || 2014-03-23 23:59:12
I just listened to this one again, I didn't remember it was such a great score ! A really wonderful work from Powell, makes me even more impatient (if possible) about his return.

I like it!! One of the most variation soundtrack. The bests songs are "Fish" (with a small variation of love, funny and attack themes), "Leopard Seal" (with a forth begin and chase theme), "Bob's Led" (for a funny song), "The Hill" (I like it the 0:57 minute), "Fun Food Storm" (a great song, with a small variates themes), "Killer Whales" (a song which demostrate the attack) and "The Alien Ships" (with a small theme of adventure and heroica act). John Powell's Alive!!

This score is absolutley great! especially track one rocks! I love that 600+ choir. I never heard such a complete score that is this beautiful!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2006-12-26 00:00:00
John, the film is about 1h45...

The score is (actually) 67 minutes, plus 4 or 5 songs (from the other CD) in the film...

I think, no I'm sure it's a complete score...

We have chance with Powell !

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2006-12-26 00:00:00
As my review states, this is a "complete" score.

"I say "complete" as there are 3 types of music in the film - pop songs, the actual score, and little bits of music that join the two together. It's the latter that isn't featured on either album, but why would it be? As for the score we do have, it's considerably more than heard in the film as a substantial amount has been cut out."

John reply Replies: 0 || 2006-12-25 00:00:00
Is this the Complete Score or are there some missing-cues?

Yesterday I saw the movie... The score is great... A lot of "speed" action scenes... Also choirs... That's a very good Powell, as usual !


At the beginning of the movie there's especially songs... But in the end, the last 20-25 minutes, above all, we have Powell's score...

Anthony you're right, the score will be a little bit short I think, but anyway, it's awsome ! ^^

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2006-12-11 00:00:00
Why do I have a feeling the last 3 comments were all by the same person?

And btw, time must fly, as this score comes out in 9 days time! :o

I just got back from seeing the film and I honestly can't see there being over 30 minutes of score for this. Ah well, never know, there could be!

No sign of tracklisting yet? It's weird to have the cover already but not the tracklisting. Although I think the total playback may not exceed 40 minutes (Don't bash me if it does! :-P), still it'd be interesting to know how much music is in there.
