Re-listening the score again...….Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...…..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting."It's the first action score by Balfe i didn't hate this year, thank god!"<br><br>This is an actual comment from the FRIGGING Hans Zimmer fan site. Balfe is so winning over everyone with his talent isn't he! <br><br>Of course, he has no fans - Krascynzki - are you posting here? Have you been told by a Balfe to make great comments about his weekend wankjob?<br><br>Seriously - Balfe is a total joke and we need to treat him as such - he laughs at anyone trying to 'listen' to him. He is on record saying no one listens to soundtracks which is why his work is so bad - you fanboys are thick to him. He is a professional driller - he fills a space and that is that.<br><br>Go listen to the latest Reality TV shit - you get the same talent and much more exciting music<br><br>Well, I don't know why a track called The Syndicate might refer to the villains of the piece - the Syndicate. If you think this is a good villain theme you may want to look around for others including Kramer's Solomon Lane which is here referenced in Barfe passing out on a synth and pressing the opening notes of Kramer's complex theme
Its just three short bursts of sound, really.Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheetIt should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.<br><br>Ossuary<br>Return to Sappers<br>Must Protect the Child<br>Bomb<br>Like a Real Girl<br>Luv in Apartment<br>Mesa Hijack<br><br>I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.You guys are dumb. the composers are listed on the complete version. break down Tai Lung Escapes by finding those curable off the complete version and see who wrote those cues. presto.I keep listening to "The Syndicat", which is what I assume to be the theme for The Syndicate. Honestly one of the better villain themes i've heard in a while
Flight has a new Andrew Kawczynski credit...We're getting there!Yeah, you're probably right. <br><br>I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff. <br><br>Either way, I love that track.Yeah<br><br>BTW, John Paesano is credited as additional musicI'm pretty sure that the majority of it is Henry Jackman (maybe with a bit of Hans). I don't get much of a Powell vibe off that particular cue at all.This film and score are ten years old! The first seven minutes of Hans’ New Batman Theme (A Dark Knight) are still one of my favorite individual Zimmer themes. <br><br>And the movie itself is still one of my favorites, comic book or not.
I'm curious, who do you think mostly wrote 'Tai Lung Escapes'? <br><br>I've always loved that track, and always felt that it was mostly a John Powell cue, although that very dark first part could easily be Hans' work. I could also see it being a Henry Jackman cue though... I don't know. :pStairs and Rooftops....WOOOW Easily one of the best film tracks of 2018. Simply Amazing!!!It's the first action score by Balfe i didn't hate this year, thank god!<br><br>It's not the best thing in years, but is a fun action score (Free Fall and Escape Through Paris, are good action tracks), plus, altough is 96 minutes, never get boredAnd the link for the CD<br><br>https:/ /www. amazon.com/gp/product/B07F3QP2HX/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie= UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASI N=B07F3QP2HX&linkId=8fcd06899e5999dd491abf60fe6dcf6dTracklist for The Darkest Minds (Milan Records)<br><br>1.

Amazing score by Steve Jablonsky, really good action soundtrack without the need to be noisy, themes like "Hope Runs Deep", puts goosebumps, one of the best score by Jablonsky undoubtedly

MacArthur reply Replies: 11 || 2014-01-06 01:38:23
I just bought this and I love it.


MrZimmerFan2014-01-06 13:31:17
You should listen Gears 3, with Gears 2, both are awesome!


MacArthur2014-01-06 16:02:35
Is the Theme still the same, Love it.


Macejko2014-01-06 16:19:54
I think it's rather dull. Jablonsky can do better.


MrZimmerFan2014-01-06 19:46:21
Macejko, go to listen Ramin Djawadi, Gears of War 2 is one the Jablonsky's Best


Macejko2014-01-06 22:14:02
I cannot understand how someone can name this one of Jablonsky's best, when there are Transformers, Ender's Game of Your Highness out there.


MacArthur2014-01-06 22:19:23
Ramin's stuff is rather dull the only good stuff that he's done is Clash of the Titans & Iron Man (Safe House is Tolerable).

Zimmer's stuff is much better and so is Jablonsky's


Macejko2014-01-06 22:23:36
Classic Schmosby :)


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-07 01:28:34
This score has some great cues (Hope Runs Deep, Armored Prayer) and some awful ones (March of the Horde) but I do like it all in all, certainly more so than Ender's Game. Gears 3 is more consistent but less memorable, also worth a listen though (and yes, same theme).


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-07 02:28:35
Oh, and AVOID Gears of War: Judgment, whatever you do. Pure shit.


MacArthur2014-01-07 02:46:58
Mabye i'll like it it's all preference

Ok I was listening to this score this morning and noticed something very interesting. If you listen to track 21 "With Sympathy" on the OST or to track 13 "Dom and Maria" on CD2 of the Complete Score both of those arrangements sound exactly like the song "Defeat (Theme 1)" from The Contender Promo Score. Basically, they're the same track with slightly different orchestrations again an homage to Jablonsky's work on that project.

I actually like the first soundtrack better. Its grittier,sparse has a sense of overwhelming odds and struggle about it just like the characters in the game.. This is bit too too glitzy hollywood for me.

This music is simply epic. I highly recommend this soundtrack. Hope Runs Deep and Rolling Thunder are just two examples of how well Steve took the original theme and added new elements to the works such as the choir. This was something not found of the GoW 1 soundtrack.

highly recommended if you like steves previous works

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2008-12-17 00:00:00
heard the score and it is very good, uses maybe two or three ideas from the first ost (also good) and mixes it with his own style.

Contains a mixture of transformers, command and conquer 3, island, steamboy (only in expanded bootlegg ripped version) and other scores of his previous works. ########

I'm new to this website, but isn't it supposed to be about Hans Zimmer's music?

Why is this soundtrack, not by him, being discussed?

Can someone please explan for me?

thanks

Had a chance to hear the music, really great...a step differently taken when Steve decides to make great music for massive battles.

I have already 3 songs and this promise to be a really good and epic soundtrack.

Lot's of use of choir which makes it really emotional comparing to Kevin Riepls score for Gears 1. Comparable to D-War. His best overal work so far for me...

The score will be released November 25th and not 11th November. A little bad news.

The line between games and films has pretty much faded. Games are more cinematic than ever and demand cinematic qualities like big budget scores. Now that the software allows for full scores composers aren't limited anymore.

I agree that composers like Giacchino, Lennertz and Tilton are examples of small composers getting their start in gaming but TV is also a good starting ground for up and coming composers.

Wow this is great! I did not know Jablonksy was scoring this. It's great that he's working on more projects now. This soundtrack should hold me over until he comes back with Transformers 2 :D

I really like Jablonsky's job but i hate this! And it's not because it's not good music it's just because some years ago, videogames soundtracks were a good starting point for "rookie and amateur" composers (like me). Now, the pros make this kind of soundtracks...?? and what can amateur musicians do now?? :(

I can't wait for this soundtrack. I love [most of] Steve Jablonsky's work. His scores for D-War and Transformers are among the top in my library. The first Gears of War video game score was less than forgettable. Hopefully Jablonsky can work his magic and really make this game unforgettable. Can't wait!

Falconet From Italy reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-10 00:00:00
i hope that Steve keep the same style of his last score as such D-War and Transformers!
