Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.
Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://www.yes24.com/24/goods/28085649<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.
Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :PWhat site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )
I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.

In case someone is still wondering...the piano music is Lounge Lizard by Joel Evans.

The best song of the movie is not on that list an not on the soundtrack. It is " Moi Lolita - from Alizee. What a little tragedy!

Track nr 13 Max-a-Million -central part- is absolutely a great composition to the ears of an Italian who has music in blood since generations. Me too, like others here, would have loved to hear it longer and longer, repeatevely... It reflects the atmosphere of the sunny golden afternoons of my childwood in the village where i lived the sunny days of my heart. Thank you Marc Streitenfeld.

The Score by Marc Streitenfeld was absolutely perfect tonight. My wife and I really felt like we were traveling through a world of love and passion. The score helped us to feel the sent from Italy. Beeing an unknown composer myself, I just felt I could have wrote this lovely score. Thanks for the music Marc Streitenfeld

I think this was one of the cutest and most memorable scores of 2006. At least one of my favourites. Would love to hear more from Marc Streitenfeld.

Just something I noticed while watching the film - one of the parts within Streitenfeld's score (the waltzy bit) sounds very much like Harmony's Theme from John Ottoman's score for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. :)

I've found a "promo" of this score with this tracklist :

2. Le Coin Perdu (1:00)
3. Wisdom (2:46)
4. A Forced Holiday (0:58)
5. France (1:32)

Don't worry, nothing new here... That's just the official score tracks cut into smaller tracks (and I think put in the correct order), there's NO new music... ;-)

The score tracks are really good...

Of course this is not "epic", or "great action", or "MV themes", but this is great...

I want to know more about Streitenfeld... He is completely unknown...

Bem, eu não conhecia o trabalho de Marc até ouvir as faixas do filme Um Bom Ano, e realmente é um belo trabalho, é a alma do filme, uma pena não conseguir ainda essas faixas na internet, ou qq outra coisa do seu trabalho, mas depois desse filme com certeza ele ganhou admiradores no mundo todo, inclusive no Brasil,

I'm glad to see that a fair amount of score was included here. The album is not mind blowing in my opinion but then it wasn't meant to be Gladiator anyway! ;-)
