The reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?
Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion king
Best film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>
Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przyby³owicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far on top for me. It feels like the ultimate culmination of Jeremy Soule's work on the the series along with symphony-level quality for the town and exploration music.

Does anyone know where the "Floating Minds" track from the old promo is from? It doesn't seem to actually belong to The Ring. It's not a very good track, just a bunch of random piano and string chords really, but it's driving me nuts.

Here's a tough one for you, guys: which Zimmer horror score do you prefer: this one or Hannibal? Speaking for myself, I honestly can't decide...I absolutely love The Ring, but Hannibal is equally as creepy, stylish and atmospheric. Would love to hear what you think.

This is the best horror score ever! :-)

it's a funny thing that I truly believe that this score is groundbreaking within Zimmer's work. soo strange but there are very scpecific musical ideas, sounds in this score that he still uses / discovering. after the 90s action sound, this was the born of a completely new library. obviusly it's not that simple I know that. it's not: let's draw a line in the sand, but something happened here.


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-30 13:32:26
I know I'm replying to this way too late, but I very much disagree. The Ring is very much an extension of Hannibal.

Is the End Credits cue credited by Zimmer only? or Tillman, Lohner and Zimmer?

2. Disturbing (was replaced with sound effects from the videotape in the film)

4. Shelter Mountain Inn (I) (was replaced with the last section of track 11 in the film)

7. Rachel Makes a Copy (film version)
8. Rachel's Vision (film version)
9. "4 Days" (was replaced with "Rachel is Alone" in the film)
10. A Lighthouse/The Fly (film version)
11. Find the Lighthouse/Moesko Island/Anna Morgan (film version)
12. Aidan's Theme (film version)
13. Aidan Can't Sleep (film version can be found in the track Investigation from the promo album)
14. The Diary (film version)
15. Before You Die You See the Ring (film version uses pieces of the track "The Well" from the official album mixed in this version of the cue)
16. Daughter! (film version)
17. Horse Overboard (I) (film version has no drums. A small part of it can be heard in "This is Going to Hurt" from the official album)
18. Horse Overboard (II) (film version)
19. Morgan's Horse Farm (film version)
20. Revealing the Videotape (it's either the film version or unused)

32. Rachel and Aidan (film version has no piano layered over the cue)
33. She Never Sleeps (I) (I think it is the film version but I'm not sure)
34. She Never Sleeps (II) (film version)
35. The Videotape Goes to Hell (film version)
36. End Credits (film version)
37. Unused Cue #1 (title speaks for itself)

Whats the difference between the 39 track version and this one? There is also a 2CD version.


Dakota2011-07-25 04:57:19
The Only difference is that the 4 remaining tracks are alternates. Take away those 4, and you have those remaining 39 racks


Poe2011-07-25 06:32:00
Not so with mine, track 39 on my edition is real long. And those 4 are from the original poor quality promo??

Yes, its my version. I had the sessions, with no titles, and after viewed the movie, i did this tracklisting, putting 3 tracks unused at the end, adding the end credits, deleting the last track of this recording which already was on the regular release and fir the final, adding the alternate tracks from the first bootleg.
It's not indicate here, but i also add "film version" on few tracks, because a large part are not.

Sure, it's different because you have the sessions (with 39 tracks). Maybe not but normally. And the tracks unused are in the beginning, but i don't remember which... maybe the 1, 5 and 7, but i'm not sure. And normally, again, the last track of your cd is "the well" on the regular release (cut on the beginning).

Track 37-39 are really unused music, never heard in the film.
Track 40-43 are from the very first promo album which was released years ago.
