I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comThat's the 'Album Version' of Time To Suit UpI'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up. <br><br>It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?
Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?
Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :pI hope there will be an album for Angel Has Fallen by 	David Buckley.PM me on YouTube for further questions.

the new x-men Trailer is out now!!! The first part of the music is awesome! Is it from Hans??


Mephariel2019-02-28 08:01:25
Yeah, I hope someone can confirm if Zimmer's music is in the trailers at all.


Unknown2019-02-28 15:14:42
May be the first 30 secs, but then, it's from Ghostwriter Music...


badbu 2019-02-28 15:53:17
Yes! i think the first part is from hans. @hybrid? :D any infos?

Henko2018-11-12 17:29:02
Yeah! The hell are the other comments about though? The Last Stand is miles ahead of X2. You weren't even saying TLS was the best X-men score, you were just saying it's Powell's best score. Man people are dumb

@Hybrid, what happened to James Mckee smith and John Ashton Thomas? We don't hear anymore from them.


Hybrid Soldier2017-03-09 18:56:53
JAT is a regular orchestrator still, for Alan Silvestri, Theodore Shapiro etc. Still very busy.

McKee, from what I heard he had several health problems linked to the insane world of film scoring, so he decided to stay away. Still writes music but mostly for Production Music companies.


Scorefan2017-03-10 02:54:18
Thank you Hybrid.

CongratulationS!! John Powell!!!!!!!!!
I arrived late!!
Main Titles are different, yes. Is best the film version, not this.
But Ok, the songs are phantastics.
The final of Church Magneto and Truck are good.

Meet Leeche & Lake are one of the best songs of album. With an small action theme when Cyclops/Scott goes with moto. And the reencounter with Phoenix/Jean are more beautiful.

The Angel's Cure theme which repites in Finale & End Credits are good. A good theme.

The Death of X..Is good, and begin the Phoenix theme.

X Funeral, with a small theme of Phoenix.

Skating!!! This song begins with a mystery love theme. Amazing and Incredible, yes.

Attack On Alcatraz and Battle for the Cure are good themes, but no re the best of the album.

The best song together with Meet Leeche and Lake is The Phoenix Arises, with one simply why: because the Phoenix Theme with a chorus is Genial. I'm loved this theme.

Finale & End Credits is best and the movie version, because two themes are collaged from Meet Leeche, with End Credits. Two minutes more^^

Yes, this message is large, because this album is Incredible!

It's essentially a ''complete'' album. Everything in its finished form so no film versions.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2007-10-11 00:00:00
Is this the film versions of everything? or is it the official release with extra stuff?

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2007-07-08 00:00:00
The sound is perfect, can't hear any difference to the OST. Too bad the film version of the Main Titles is still missing, otherwise a perfect album.

Yes -- that means the official release has to be bought even if you have this boot

hehehe, it's a bootleg after all, what did you expect OMG? ;-)

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-19 00:00:00
Sound quality is not as good as the Varese release :(

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-17 00:00:00
So, the missing 30 minutes arrived earlier than expected. I wish some other scores would follow the same routine. It seems to me that the good parts are already released on Varese's disc but at least this bootleg is not a gapless album. It may help finding the key tunes we're after faster but listening to a track without a beginning nor ending is weird.
