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.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!
It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).
John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell is now available to stream worldwide on all digital platforms! &#128526;<br><br>Also available to download in 192k/24bit high-resolution from johnpowellmusic .com<br>CDs on https ://bit.ly/2lcQ5Ig :) and coming soon to Amazon and other retailers!<br><br>Thank you, everyone, who was a part of this record!<br>Enjoy &#127926;&#127930;Mega cool :) Wann wird dieser Remix released? :)This would be really nice that as the release is only available for download, we had the choice to download it in a better quality than the CD itself. We have no material piece in the  hands, at least we would like to have such a contentment. I do have no action in Qobuz, but that should be a mandatory place for a download only music, for music lovers who like pure instrumental music. ;)<br>I'll be waiting for it !This album is absolutley wonderful!. I loved every second of it. I adore choirs in film music and an album like this is a very welcome treat!<br><br>Great job, Mr. Powell<br>10/10
Absolutely delightful score. Loved it.Where can we buy this "complete score"?What a wonderful soundtrack, I can not stop listening either. When I get home after work, Interstellar is the best soundtrack to listen to in the quiet of dawn. It's to get in touch with the Cosmos. Congratulations Hans Zimmer.from like.....4 years ago?I’m surprised nobody is talking about the expanded score that has leaked...!

In my opinion this is the worst score of the franchise. Electronic chaos.


Leo2015-09-02 17:42:58
I don't know, I think it fits the theme of chaos and revenge the game portrays, and the electronic 80's vibe in some of the tracks is quite good, lol :P

Leo reply Replies: 4 || 2015-06-15 21:16:37
It seems Justin Burnett has receive full credit for composing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain...
I'm not sure what to feel right now, Harry Gregson-Williams became the soundtrack producer, and no sign of Akirhiro Honda or Ludwig Forsell


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-15 23:34:08
That's true... Well there are 2 different teams on the project, usually the "Hollywood" one and the japanese one (like MGS 2 & 3 (HGW / Hibino)...

The US one usually gets all the attention in the trailer, but I can assure you Forsell and the rest of the japanese team did its share ! :)


Boldizar2015-06-16 03:03:35
Yea Hibino is always around creating the awesome in game tracks.


Leo2015-06-16 05:21:31
Do you happen to know if Burnett, Harry, Lurwig or Honda composed the what it seems to be the theme for Quiet in this trailer?

TheDude2015-06-16 12:00:39
Well, Ludvig's credited as "Lead Composer" check out the screen towards the end of the trailer with all the finer print credits.

I love this soundtrack! I'm Harry Gregson-Williams's number 1 fan!

However, I can't believe he was confirmed to be the composer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, because I don't like the films. But who am I to judge. He always surprises me. Let's see how he does it with the next Twilight movie.

I probably considered this weakest out of the series. The music in this game isn't that great, except for a few parts. Though I do have to say metal gear solid soundtrack is probably by far just a synth soundtrack for background listenining. Metal Gear Solid 3 proves that HGW can do a great job to these series. I also understand that HGW did not do the first metal gear solid and thats why it failed in the music department in my opinion.

Good score, but very synthetic and not very original. A pure "Remote Control" productions style. HGW was better a few years ago. When he composes in the pure action-style, he's not original and very good. But it's a game score, not a movie score.. He'll never accomplish a good performance like "Metal Gear 2" and his arrangement of Tappy's theme..

starberry reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-04 00:00:00
so, uh, what is the official word on the status of a "main theme"?

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-04 00:00:00
What do you mean official word? The main theme is probably HGW's cue from MGS3 as plagued said. Who knows why they decided not to go with TAPPY's original MGS theme this time. Maybe it's because of the accusations of plagiarism or they just thought they'd give old Snake a bit more nostalgic tone...? Anyway, I have to say I felt HGW's score to be quite overshadowed by KONAMI's own composers' score this time. Never thought I'd say something like that.

plagued reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-03 00:00:00
the main theme has been cut from this score.. the cue HGW wrote for MGS3 (before the main/classic theme cuts in at the end) is the only thing that carried over to MGS4

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-03 00:00:00
As of now, the soundtrack will only be released with the limited edition of MGS4. I don't think it will be the entire soundtrack though.
