Jackman has always been my favorite of his "generation" of RC composers (in which I also include Balfe, Djawadi, ÷rvarsson, 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 no heís 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 Eternals
Well, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.This is Balfeís best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we donít get to hear much I think.<br>Itís 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> 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 !@Hybrid would you update the complete score with the new tracklist? Thankswhat happened here?. Track 4 Bunker Bust and Track 14 River mission are the exact same track. The game itself has a couple of good themes that didn't make it onto the album.

Hey ppl! i'm a guy from China, The Rock really rocks me, the bathroom script is pretty touching. I enjoy the rhythm both from the moive n music, the main theme is splendid.
And Harry Gregson-Williams is the composer of the Metal Gear series music right? The moive n the game are brothers in different aera^^

I have seen the movie ten times or more and yesterday, I was looking for the soundtrack and could not find it:( It is probably the best movie (of its kind) I have ever seen! The kind of movie that you watch over and over again... you really get addicted! And if you then watch gladiator, some similarities are really striking...

This is just THE movie to watch! ... and the chase is probably one of the best parts of the soundtrack!

I would say the same thing -- However Hans just composed the main theme. The main action parts have been composed by Nick Glennie Smith

One of THE BEST scores ever... No question about it.... There's only one sore that comes a bit close to this one and it's from The Godfather but still... This one is SO much better (athough the other one is not bad at all... :).
Keep up the good work,
Greg, IL.

The Rock is THE soundtrack of my life. I loved it from the first time i saw the movie. Not just that it's my favorite movie score ever, but i like it from all MV works the most, Nick Glennie-Smith and the others have created an incredibly rich action score here, the best action themes i've experienced in my life (thanks Hans), from the first track untill the end, this score is just a rollercoaster ride. There's always new stuff to experience, huge bursts of heroic themes, light drums all over the place, MV trademark guitars and the never absent rhythm, which can be best experienced in the "--Chase"-- track. That all and much more is The Rock... the only thing i could wish for, is an official Complete Score release, but that will never happen anyway.
