hybrid created a very good suite from this movie, also because he left out the more uninteresting action stuff. the whole score is not original, but the themes are great because they transport emotions and excitement. the quiter parts are also very nice. im sure the actionmusic is very functional in the movie, but as a stand alone listening experience it is not very convincing. too much electronics which make too much noise. when the themes kick in, it sounds good, but a better mix of orchestra and electronics would have helped. sadly you won't find a second "Burn around the moon" or "Goodbye/Landing" from Armageddon in this score.Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?
I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.Have to agree because if you havenít an interest in Lorneís work then just donít goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply donít click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You donít have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.
Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.
Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! Iím scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????How pathietic that it bothers some ,that some of us are excited about another composers music. Get a life people. Balfe has become a great composer this year so give him a break . If you donít like it , you can find another forumI agree, I'm shocked no one is talking about how great Ramin Djawadi's score is for The Mountain Between Us. Much better than this new Lorne Balfe score, I'm mean really, this Geostorm score is just a constant reminder to other scores from RCP from the past. Nothing original here. Only the track May Day is memorable.I like it too but I don't understand why this thread is full of slobbering fanboys while nobody is talking about, say, Kingsman 2 which is just as good. I don't want to stop anyone talking about his music but did we really need every day this year for someone to go "oh my god I can't wait for Lorne to release another unreleased cue from Ghost in the Shell"? It doesn't contribute anything meaningful and makes this site look even more like a YouTube comments section than it already does.Your right Edmund ..... how dare we take about any other composer apart from Zimmer or John Powell!  Thankfully your point of view is in the minority. There is obviously a reason why he is one of the busiest composers . Geostorm isnít original BUT itís great music and I like it at least

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.

@Ele:

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.

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-07 00:00:00
@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...

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....!

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.
