I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kaiís theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that werenít on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I donít feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.
This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since itís release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her ďHero ThemeĒ gets some great development (the way it culminates in ďEpilogueĒ is incredible). Also really love the ďMotorballĒ stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is ďMotorball PlanĒ and ďAlitaís Revenge Pt. 1Ē. The end credits piece Iím guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"Hahahahaha well Iím glad he got the credit then :DI absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.
Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!And Iím guessing Neill Blomkamp contributed somehow to the ďWe Own This SkyĒ theme that pops up throughout...NM
Jeff & Alex & Evan Goldman are regular Jackman team now. Alex scored a bunch of projects, hence his absence here.<br><br>Then you have Halli, Anthony Willis or Mounsey doing all sorts of things when available.Request the king of pride rock with circle of lifeAmon wrote some music before Hans took over (he has cues on his soundcloud I think), but I think he got credited (and just like 1 or 2% of the cues) more for specific sounds than music writing.Widows is terrible score, Inferno was ok, far from things like Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons.<br><br>But yes, listen this one, is gratifying see Zimmer can make things with orchestra like early 2000s. And this comes from a guy who loves Inception, Interstellar or ChappieThe fact that his name is in brackets makes me think he didn't work directly on the score but rather is credited because something of his was used. Maybe it was some of his production music rather than Elysium specifically.

Who played bass guitar on the credits "Move it" song?

If anyone knows, please share. It is so well done. It actually sounds a lot like Flea but it probably isn't.

I LOVE THE TRAVELING SONG!!!! LOVE IT!!!


Iíve been around the world, in the pouring rain
Feeling out of place, really feeling strange
Take me to a place, where they know my name
Cause I ainít met nobody that looks the same

Iím a fish out of water, lion out of the jungle
[He a fish out of water, lion out of the jungle]
I need my peoples, my peoples, take me to my peoples
THEY GOT JUNGLE FEVER, SHOW HIM SOME LOVE,
SHOW HIM LOVE.

Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to
Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iím home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven, heaven

Traveling the world, like a touring man
Been around the planet in the foreign land
Iíve seen things that Iíve thought Iíve never seen
Take me to a place where they live like me

Iím a lion out the jungle, fish out of the ocean
[Heís a lion out the jungle, fish out of the ocean]
I need my peoples, my peoples, take me to my peoples
THEY GOT JUNGLE FEVER, SHOW HIM SOME LOVE,
SHOW HIM LOVE

Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to
Could I have someone, could I have someone,
To relate to, to relate to

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iím home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

See Iíve been traveling, been traveling forever
But now that Iíve found a home,
Feels like Iím in heaven

Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven,

Feels like Iím in heaven
Feels like Iím in heaven
Iím in heaven,

Oh and Iím feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
[Iíve been around the world]

Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Feeling like Iím in heaven,

Itís like Iím in heaven
Itís like Iím in heaven
Iím in heaven

Itís like Iím in heaven
Iím in heaven
Itís like Iím in heaven
Iím in heaven

Oh yeah

I wish this soundtrack release would have more instrumental music, which is featured in the movie itself ... I miss a lot of music from 1h+ in the movie
is there some chance there will be a second soundtrack release like an addition or extention ... I mean, sometimes it happens and I really wish I could hear some more of this fantastic music!

Once Upon a Time in Africa, Rescue Me, and Alex on the Spot all make great use of the now infamous Zooster Theme. This score is yet another gem is Hans Zimmer's crown of musical greatness. Job well done.
