man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Donít even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.
I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12. The Bazaar (01:16)<br>13. Snake Charmer (03:41)<br>14. The Power of Bravestone (01:04)<br>15. Seaplane McDonough (02:17)<br>16. The Missing Piece (01:46)<br>17. Lost In Time (01:18)<br>18. Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.

Hybrid, did you not say a while back that you didn't think Zimmer actually sat down and did any music in here (he just kinda gave Ramin pointers)?

Snake reply Replies: 2 || 2013-03-27 09:02:02
Actually Harry Gregson-Williams was offered to score the film but he had conflicts with The Prince Caspian and Ramin Djawadi was a replacement. I wonder how would Gregson-Williams do the job.


zeroman2013-03-27 15:27:25
I enjoyed what Ramin did for the score to a degree. But no doubt...if Harry had scored it probably would have turned out alot better.

so was Djawdi never really wanted for the first iron man. since Debny, who has composed all Favreus other films is now composing the second (did he want Debny to begin with and the studio decided aginst it. Or did Djawdi just not want to come back?

Its very bad score... I still can't understand how Hans is involved in so many tracks... This is called the biggest crap of 2008 for a reason.

MK reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-07 00:00:00
I'm very glad that Ramin got this job and in my opinion he also did it well. I don't think that these kind of films need so profound approach. It's all about the fun and entertainment.

This is one of my favorite Remote scores.
Ramin is good, Ramin with Zimmer is cool.

Thanks for adding the individual song credits to this and POTC - it really clears some things up. But where did you find these credits? Are they official or just educated guesses?

Nah, this score was too bland and simplistic for my tastes... and many other people who also disliked it.

There have been far better scores this year.

Viki reply Replies: 0 || 2008-09-13 00:00:00
Absolutely amazing sound tracks, the sound track fits the theme and the movie's sequences of scenes. A lot of idiots have commented in here that its not good enough, some even haven't seen the damn movie, jerks.

And those who moan about a classic piece of rock and orchestral fusion have no taste for anything, bunch of tossers.

meh

This easily one of the best scores of the year! There is no disappointment, the only disappointment is that there are a lot of hot heads and goofs who moan about it.

It's not Djawadi fault too, because he did what the director/producer wanted to have.

John Debney commented on Iron Man in his interview at http://www.scorenotes.com/

He says he was attached (and was Favreau's choice) but Marvel went with a generic MV score... as with many people he didn't like the result.

Still can't believe Djawadi got this gig :-(

Debney would have ruled this... Damn studio tampering!

Not bad, IMO, but I can't help feel it could've been much better. Though I quite like the end result anyway, hehe.

Well I have to say, the movie and the score blew me away. I wasn't expecting what everyone delivered. However, even though I own the soundtrack, working with music a lot myself, I sometimes find missing pieces with movie scores. There is a lot of music in the film not found on it. Does anyone know of anything being released in the future? They market this album as a soundtrack, not a score.

"Hi guys. Does anyone know what are the tracks mixed together in the animation bettween the end of the film and the credits. One is Black Sabbath - Iron Man but the other?"

Yeah, Kudredin. Here you go:

After that awful Black Sabbath song, there comes THE REAL music! That is:

10. Mark II
01. Driving with Top Down
11. Extra Dry, Extra Olives

Enjoy!

How come I cant find a list of players. Who was the drummer, Guitars, Bass, Orchestra????????? Writing is one thing. Playing another. Why are you not giving credit to the musicians who played the score?

Movie was excellent. Score... hmm... Hans Zimmer with Batman had more punch to it than this, so I would have to say that I'm disappointed - slightly.

I think we can safely say that things could heat up a little more for a sequel. I place my $$ on a better follow through in part II. The only problem?... will Robert Downey Jr. reprise his role or will he figure that the first time out was for an "art" expedition..?

Let's hope he and Gwenyth come back. Excellent chemistry.

Get IM to fight someone with substance... perhaps a war ridden country again but with a diabolical Marvel foe who is behind another arms type operation, which threatens the west again. Hide the foe, generate a political ally, and throw some romance into the second movie... sounds good already!

The movie was great, it was touching, as you say it is was. But the score was totally repeating it's theme all through out the movie maybe not exactly during the touching parts,but I feel that if you really listen it all sounds very similar. so yeah I would have rather listened to a more in touch piece of music,than to have listen to some poor knock off of a cheese B flick from the early 00's. So logical or not, the score still sucks. and theirs nothing anybody can do about it. Except for Top Ramin noodles what ever his name is... Thanks for the reply danny boy.

jay arvada reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-22 00:00:00
THIS score SUCKED bad. Lacked emotional content, and was really flat. Need proof listen to spider man's score, Iron man by Black Sabbath was all this movie needed, to bad we all had to wait until the end of the movie to hear a real piece music. Oh well better luck next time.

Danny reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-22 00:00:00
SO you're saying that theyb shuld have just hrown out the whole score and just play Iron Man by Black Sabbath the whole time. even during touching moments. Hmmmm...sounds logical.
