Well, unless you have a source, or can point to a credible publication reporting Romer is not scoring it, I think it is safe to assume (for now) that the composer announced and still listed on the official website as the composer for the film is in-fact the composer for the film..<br><br>He wouldn't be my personal choice for the job, but I am not going to ignorantly pretend that he isn't currently the hired composer.I was at the concert yesterday in Denmark, words can't describe what i felt, it's something that has to be experienced in person, truly amazing.<br><br>Music is one thing, but the lights and video along the show was awsome, that can't be described, you have to be there.<br><br>I hope for a bluray version of a concert, I will gladly be the first to buy it.Jackman has always been my favorite of his "generation" of RC composers (in which I also include Balfe, Djawadi, Örvarsson, Margeson and Streitenfeld - the ones who broke out about a decade ago). I think he's the best orchestral writer other than Powell and I always appreciate the clean, organic sound of his scores - like with Powell's scores, Jackman's orchestra always sounds real and clearly distinct from the electronics, unlike Balfe and Zimmer himself who use samples a lot more and blur things in the middle. That's true even of scores of his I don't like, such as Winter Soldier.<br><br>I do wish he'd stop stripping the electronics off of tracks for his album releases though. That seems like a strange way to address the criticisms he got for Winter Soldier - kind of missing the point.Any plans for a concert in Denmark (Boxen, Herning) ?I like this score!!!<br><br>Henry is very good in my opinion. I always liked his scores even when others didn't.<br><br>And I'm really excited for Jumanji: The Next Level!!!
Neither Romer or Balfe are scoring Bond 25I want to say that test screening version of Ghost in the Shell deleted one geisha character who was under orders of Cutter to follow the Major  and in the original third act, she fought Aramaki when he stormed into Cutter's Holo room after killing his guards. Aramaki survives and the scene continues as shown. Because of the poor reception of what I call "The Philosophical Cut", the geisha character was removed and there were quick reshoots of all of  the conversations between Cutter and Aramaki minus the geisha character involvement.The report about Romer leaving wasn't even confirmed, so I think it's just people wanting the expected to happen at this point.lol no he’s notLast week, the IMDb page said Joseph Trapanese is scoring it and next week some other composer will probably be listed there. Amazing that some people still think of IMDb as a reliable source for this kind of info.
More Cannons!, 2:14 - Jack Sparrow theme from PotC?Ramin Djawadi will compose The EternalsWell, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.This is Balfe’s best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we don’t get to hear much I think.<br>It’s been interesting reading posts about Balfe doing Bond.Has he confirmed yet if he is ?Why would I ever do that ?<br><br><br>Tracklist is the real one... -_-
New trailer for the Sonic movie.<br>https://youtu.be/szby7ZHLnkAIs there any chance of a concert in London?i mean, the page, would you update with the tracklist posted years ago?What.Un artiste qui a une force mais d'une puissance ! Bravo depuis la France !

Checked ASCAP and BMI, this is what I found:

Buckley, Nick Glennie-Smith

Monkey King and Warlord, Part 2
Training Montage
Sparrow Dies

and apparently Halli Cauthery helped write Let the Journey Begin


Knight2019-04-12 08:16:14
Any idea if Nick's contributions are on album, Hybrid?

Bayhem reply Replies: 9 || 2018-10-30 15:28:15
Such a beautiful and layered score. David Buckley deserves as much hype as Lorne. They're both the same age, started at pretty much the same time, they're both pretty active now, yet no one seems to talk about Buckley. While "Lorne talk" is all over the place.

Buckley deserves more recognition. And I would even argue that when it comes to more emotional cues, he's better than Lorne. It's like he took the best from Zimmer and Powell. My opinion....


bildchen2018-10-30 17:48:44
mhm, interesting. i have to admit, i never heard to any of his scores. will start with this one. do you have any more tips for me?


Mephariel2018-10-30 22:30:45
The Forbidden Kingdom is much better than anything Lorne Balfe ever scored. No joke. It is actually one of the best RCP scores of that decade.


Michael2018-10-31 15:54:12
“Better than Lorne Balfe”

HA!!!!!!!!!

Thats why Balfes gets big movies and Buckley doesn’t then is it ? Exactly


Mephariel2018-10-31 16:21:44
Getting big movies doesn't mean better composer.

Balfe also arguably gets bigger films than Carter Burwell, Patrick Doyle, and John Debney.


...2018-10-31 17:57:58
This year Balfe got bigger movies than Zimmer himself... does that make Balfe better than Zimmer lol


Hybrid Soldier2018-10-31 19:20:29
If you keep going the route you're dangerously taking, I'm simply erasing this conversation.


superultramegaa2018-10-31 20:38:51
Lorne Balfe is better than Howard Shore... because he gets more big movies in this period of time. Nice logic, Michael.


Anonymous2018-11-01 01:39:47
wow Hybrid Soldier. dictator much?


Hybrid Soldier2018-11-01 18:45:10
Yes, very much.

Magnificent score!

It's great to see how the future always look great at Remote Control Productions with now David Buckley making a great one of his own after the likes of Zimmer, Mancina, the Gregson-Williams brothers, Glennie-Smith, Dooley, Jablonsky and co. made it before him from the same studio.

It's possible, but some of Harry Gregson-Williams material pops up in this score too.

JT83 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Nevermind. For some reason they put it as the album's *last* track. Weird, but acceptable.

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Excellent score. It sure deserves the wait. It's rich with thematic ideas and ethnic elements, the sound quality is crisp and clear and the mix is superb. It's very hard to believe they were on the narrowest of budgets when recording this thing, when you compare it with some of the big budget scores that's coming out these days.

This one is highly addictive for those who, like me, love exotic/ethnic film scores. Can't wait for David's future works now!

JT83 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Listening to the CD, very happy. But no 'Title track' theme? :(

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
You're not wrong dude. But that's the only moment of the whole score where a Batman flavored tune is heard and I assume this is the reason that Hybrid Soldier chose this one for the samples.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Maybe David Buckley was a ghostwriter on The Dark Knight. lol

Klaas reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
Perhaps I'm entirely wrong, but to me it seems that the beginning of the extract (Track 19) sounds extremely similar to the extracts I heard from 'The Dark Knight'. Anyone else noticed this? I was wondering because for as far as I know these two scores have nothing to see with eachother...

(But as I said, perhaps I'm totally wrong. I don't have both scores on cd yet, this is purely based on some extracts.)

Well I do of course realize that CD Audio Quality is superior to 'crappy' iTunes, but I happen to be fine with the quality offered, without having to have another CD lying around the house. I simply prefer digital downloads, since I listen to them on my iPod at work most of the times anyways. So there: I am no audio quality affectionato, but I am a guy who's willing to pay good money for this soundtrack, because I seriously like what I heard so far. Well I can't, which in the end is of course not anyone's problem but mine. However I'd still like to at least know if and when there is potentially a way to obtain the soundtrack in Germany and be it 'just' as a CD release that I can buy from the German Amazon (though I'd still prefer iTunes) :)
