Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

I just now heard this score and LOVE it! Very good! Reminds me of Pirates/King Arthur but still sounds original. What surprises me is that some people can't hear the difference between a real orchestra and a fake one. Since the Budapest Symphony played this score and you can easily tell it's live musicians! Orchestrated lushly by Bruce Fowler, engineered by Jeff Biggers, both first rate talent! But yes, there are synths in this score too. It's a sci-fi/fantasy movie about an alien monster, so it's not out of place. Tracks 1 and 3 were my favorites.

I never said that you said it was a bad score. I was talking about people like the guy who said that Zanelli was a bad composer and that the Outlander score was "disgusting." I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear at first.

@Miles I never said its bad & complete rubbish and so on. It's mediocre score, its rly badly orchestrated. Strings do not sound like strings, but like synth. Strings should have sound as strings. As so on so on etc.

Simply Amazing, Bravo Geoff :)

I don't see why some people are so displeased with this soundtrack; it's a perfectly serviceable and competently crafted action score that blends traditional with electronic, just like the movie itself. Zanelli definitely has talent, as his work on Into the West demonstrates.

BTW, Bobby Tahouri's score to Echelon Conspiracy has just been released on iTunes--might be worth a look.

I haven't found any problems with the sound myself, but maybe that's just me...

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-11-14 00:00:00
Yes, its very meh. I'd give it 5, maybe 6. Listen to Into The West by Zanelli, its much much better. Into The West should got 8/10 here :(

Very nice, epic tracks, catchy main theme, but the sound sux. It's really bad orchestrated.

Hey people ! I'm in France, and unfortunately I can't find the CD of outlander anywhere :(
Can anybody help me and tell me where I can find it please?
I can't believe there's not the musik from the shield scene on the cd! It was probably my favorite among all the others...But I guess the others are not that bad either :)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-04 00:00:00
Well... for 27 euros id expect more :)

As long as the music is good, I don't really think it matters what the cover looks like. Hope to hear more from GZ in the future.

On a side note, do you think that the Delgo score will ever be released? If what I heard in the trailers is Zanelli's music, a CD would be pretty sweet!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-15 00:00:00
They also need to learn how to design a cover, the front cover is quite nice... but the rest is amateuristic photoshopping.. emphasizing amateuristic!! And poor selection of pictures... Luckely they didn't place a photo of the composer on the inlay like they did with Max Payne...
If this is what you get for a 1500 limited cd release...
Perhaps I'd even prefer the VarŤse covers over this, at least they can select good pictures....!

Is there any reason why the Shield Game scene is NOT in this OST ?

This is a great score. Geoff did a superb job. It is a good mixture of his other scores, and yes there is a slight King Arthur feel throughout the score. I'm listening to it right now and the theme is well done. I really have no complaints about this score.

Aww, how disappointing. This time it's really nothing but noise. The only tracks that stand out are The Moorwen Genocide and Kainan Becomes King.
