Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!
Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lol

Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me too
Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.

Hybrid Soldier2011-10-19 12:11:56
And so your first reflex is to come here to post a tracklist ?

Next time, don't... :S


And this is very old news... For me anyway...


Anonymous2011-10-19 16:20:40
uuuuh yeah for you. you're soooo cool. -.-

I've posted the tracklist, so everyone can see it. why not? everyone should know that there is a 48 track score out there and not only the one with 14 tracks.


Anonymous2011-10-21 06:16:56
Hybrid i don't understand your comment. So if anyone else comes here and put a tracklist for you is nothing, but when you, in the past, posted a tracklist you look that everyone here in the forum says "Thanks Great Hybrid, You Are A God In This. And by the way, i don't know, even the websmasters of this page never wrote this, you write here and there that you have "many connections" and ultimately "work in some way with the remote control team". So, if for you it's an old new this tracklist, just don't write anything and let the fans of this comes here and write something that's in new for the most of the fans. Why you didn't post this before? Please shut up Hybrid you are not the God Of this.


smith2011-10-21 06:36:05
hybrid just showed us this "elite"-thinking. they think they are something great, because they have music that hasn't the public. It's not the very first time that he showed us this behavior. he became very big-headed.

to write stop posting real complete track-listings and telling everyone that it is SOOOO old news for him, is really really really lame.

Shame, because i thought in the beginning hybrid were a nice guy, but after posting some of this crappy posts from him, where he wants to tell everyone that he's something better makes him small and a jerk.

just my 2 cents.


Hybrid Soldier2011-10-21 07:51:25
Bla bla bla...

Because this is NOT THE PLACE to post tracklists like that ! I've said it before, I'll say it again...

Just think of me like I'm Falcone from Begins... ;)


Karambaru2011-10-21 10:20:38
I think I heard h-z.com team recently had some issues with RCP for adding bootleg tracklists here, that's why they are a bit touchy when people keep coming here to add new ones.

@Anonymous+@smith
When I see both of you acting like whiney b**ches with Hybrid (who is just the guy who brought you so many informations and complete scores in the past) I know why we "the elite" aren't sharing music with you any more !
And we're not "elite" btw, we simply decided to be active instead of passive, and sometimes helping people in the studios can be rewarding. Think about that before critisizing.


smith2011-10-21 12:03:36
@ Hybrid: But why not? it's a public place where we can talk about the scores. And if there is a complete listing, why not posting it here? Just tell me a reason. Just saying because you don't want it is not a reason.

@Karambaru: I already said, Hybrid was a nice guy, until some months ago. But it becomes more often where he states posts like this that it is SOOOOOO old news for him, or when some is happy about a complete score he answers like "yeah i've heard to it 2 years ago, so it's so old for me". Posts like that are unnecessary don't you think? Why don't let people be happy or excited when they get something they entirely wish.

And not sharing anymore? You never shared something! Music should be for everyone available. And not only for you guys out there who are thinking to be something better then others.

And please get back to topic now. I love this score and was SO happy when i saw the complete one. I simply love this score.


cheesy2011-10-21 13:40:57
@Hybrid Do you mean Fox from Begins?

Sorry for glossing over the the majority of these comments here, you just have no idea how sick I'm getting of all this complete score crap. I mean, I love them, but still... can't we talk about something else for once? I mean, as other users have said before, this place has really gone downhill. And I may not be totally innocent, but still, this is becoming a gray market.

Am I now an idealist for wishing we could just talk about the actual music again?


Mr. Fate2011-10-21 14:30:51
From smith: "Posts like that are unnecessary don't you think?"

Yes, I do think that--I think that all of your posts are unnecessary. Karambaru has some powerful words, and he really knows how to say the right things. It's whiners like you and Anonymous that are in the wrong here. I've never viewed Hybrid Soldier in a bad light, but you guys sure are trying hard.

This site sucks because of folks like you.


Anonymous2011-10-21 23:31:52
Karambaru you never share or shared jack s**t. too worried about the consequences, hm? crawl back into your gloryhole of scores and never return


Mr. Jones2011-10-22 20:51:06
hybrid is just a fanboy who has his 'connections' and gets special stuff from remote control productions. sometimes to hype up scores, sometimes cause hes bored. he doesnt actually work in the group, but pretends to. he then hands down some of those scores as time goes on, eventually leaking to that fine place we all know. he has all you hanging like a thread, just like I did, only difference is hes not selling anything. kind of ironic, dont you think?


Mr. Fate2011-10-22 21:51:17
Huh. Interesting. However, I am not getting what the irony is in that.

So, Mr. Jones...whatever *did* happen to that music you teased us with? I find it intriguing that you would bring up your own actions in comparison to Hybrid's. Perhaps you are just another one of those folks that likes to tease the less fortunate with the music we don't and can't have.

But some things have changed now. We have an actual bootleg of that Pirates score with quite a lot of unreleased music on it. How does your version compare with this one--if you don't mind my asking?


Mr. Jones2011-10-22 22:52:46
I merely wanted to know how far people would go to get this music they love. turns out it goes pretty far, seriously some of you are pathetic. its gonna be out soon, just watch for it. I can only imagine how many scores will be out on the realm by jan 2012


tom2011-10-22 22:58:12
any chances for last samurai?


Mr. Fate2011-10-22 23:08:39
This has been quite a year to be getting some much sought after scores, but I find it hard to imagine what you are envisioning right now. Still...was the music you posted actually real, or were parts of it borrowed from somebody else's edit? I'd think the complete score to that movie would have far more tracks than what you posted.

If you don't mind my asking, again: what scores do you see getting out around the time frame you stated?


Anonymous2011-10-23 04:56:36
Just Remember: This site is a fan-site. So, like a fan i write something new about a score, that is new for me. And, if this OLD NEWS for you Hybrid, well, don't write anything. And, like you say this is NOT THE PLACE to post tracklists like that ! I've said it before, I'll say it again...", well, tell us where do we post tracklist. Just curiosity, i posted the tracklist of Jumper complete Score (because this exist 33 Tracks) and you say that it's not true and was a fake. Many days after, you posted the tracklist of jumper complete score, and suddenly, that tracklist dissappear. So, you cannot accept that ONE FAN, post and find something that you never had. It's interesting.
