To be fair, Giacchino didn’t have much time to work on Rogue One, which explains why certain portions (coughactionmusiccough) fell flat. It’s not a bad score at all, but yeah, John Powell is above and beyond a better composer. His recordings have life and energy, and while most of it still sounds like Powell, he is able to switch into Williams mode so easily.<br><br>In defense of Giacchino though, just go listen to Jupiter Ascending if you want a score on the same level as this. The action music is phenomenal, there are at least a dozen solid themes, and the recording doesn’t seem as flat as some of his other scores.I think Powell found his niche with this score...<br>Because he's WAY better at apeing Williams than Giacchino could ever be, and with way more energy....<br><br>And here Giacchino prides his work on Williams from his origins in video game music... <br><br>This blows Giacchino out of the ocean and into the moon. This surprises me, as I expected Giacchino to have such  huge hard-on for Williams.Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer, <br>Hallo Hans,<br>  <br>ich habe einige ihrer Konzerte gesehen, Prag jedoch, war wirklich, ich kann es nicht in Worte fassen, unglaublich. Top Musiker und eine super performance!<br>Ihre Musik ist eine Inspiration.<br>Hoffentlich hören wir noch viele Stücke von Ihnen...<br><br>Hochachtungsvoll und liebe Grüße<br>StefanYeah, 30-ish seconds into Do You Bleed?"Reminiscent Therapy" is amazing in the way it incorporates a lot of Williams' classic stuff making it feel very natural and organic, like it's part Powell's themes, like he does with "The Adentures of Han".<br><br>This is a really great score
He is the chosen one, the one who will bring balance to the film music world...Thats just 'do you bleed?' with a small insert?Haha, It's as the prophecy foretold.John Powell, the great uniter of film music fans@MrZimmerFan<br><br>I actually like Rogue One, and I do understand why it leans so heavily on the original themes. Here the themes are incorporated more as fan service, but Powell is able to do wonders with interpolating them with his material. <br><br>And something I forgot to mention, this score reminds me so much of Pan in the action sequences. The percussion and brass writing is great lol
im surprised how Powell uses his ANTZ percussion in this!<br><br>The track Train Heist, Into The Maw is good example of it.<br><br>This is the only score that will please the gang at JW and HZ alike.When JWFan and HZ.com are discussing the same score....'but not as heavily as Rogue One'<br><br>Because Rogue One have conections with certain aspects or characters from the OT?<br><br>An here you have a track with three themes (or cues) with no conections with the OT, Rogue One have more sense... but the score is fricking awesome :)So first impressions:<br><br>JP knocked this one out of the park! The whole score has this excellent swashbuckling vibe, which is surprisingly aggressive during the action sequences (entirely due to his trademark percussion).<br><br>The writing style is really interesting, it’s basically John Powell doing his usual style but with some Williams flourishes, especially during the softer cues. The Star Wars themes do return, but not as heavily as Rogue One. And of course the JW cue is great, although surprisingly structured more as an action cue as opposed to a concert suite.<br><br>And for some reason the Han theme sounds vaguely similar to Poe’s theme from Force Awakens.Let’s just say “Reminiscience Therapy”.... hold onto your seats! ;-)
This score is awesome!! Powell did a great job at making a score that's differet than all the other SW scores, but still you know it's a SW score. He reprised Williams' theme brilliantly and I can't stop to listen to it!!!what about the music when batman makes it back to the cave and lex opens the case of kryptonite. cant find it in theseYeah I can't agree that Inception or Interstellar are superior pieces of scoring. Certainly not in structure, thematic development, etc. <br><br>What defined those scores is the vision behind them more so than the execution. In so many ways, that is opposite of The World's End. Interstellar is a brilliant score that managed to provide each scene with a simplistic tone, but one that captured the atmosphere behind the scenes perfectly, such as the unique use of the organ. Same with Inception with the guitars. <br><br>With a World's End, the vision is nothing special. It is a rock and roll twist to classic music. But the execution brings enormous power and gravitas to the movie.<br><br>I would sum it up by saying that in Interstellar and Inception, the creation of the music drives the movie's ideas while in At World's End, the movie drives the creation of the music.Nazg&#251;l for Azog I will never forgive. It's not a Servant of Sauron theme, it's a Ringwraith theme, and Azog's not a Ringwraith, he's a goddam Orc, and that theme doesn't belong there, full stop. It was just put there because it sounds "epic" and would "pump up the action scene". Gondor Restored at the end is just as stupid. And the Dreaming of Bag End theme for Bilbo is indeed lovely, and would have been lovelier still if it actually appeared in the movie. Instead it just gets replaced by copy/pasted Hobbit music from LOTR instead because Peter Jackson desperately wants his audience to remember how good those movies were in lieu of the Hobbit ones being any good on their own. Needless to say it goes missing entirely from the second and third score...along with the Misty Mountains melody (the strongest theme of the first one). I still really like those scores overall but they got absolutely butchered in terms of their thematic usage in the films. Then again those movies were an absolute clusterfuck so I shouldn't be surprised.<br><br>WRT Harry Potter, the 3 note theme does work okay for Voldemort, except that there's already a longer, separate Voldemort theme in Philosopher's, one that I like even more, and which only gets used once in Chamber (when Riddle rearranges the letters). I can understand liking Chamber better than Philosopher when you compare the albums, but in terms of the complete scores there's no contest at all, Philosopher wins by a country mile because of Chamber's rehash issues (and there are some good cues missing from the album, such as the Troll and Forbidden Forest scenes).@Edmund<br>The thing with the Nolan scores (at least Interstellar/Inception) is that they are repetitive, in as much as being built heavily around the suites that I’m guessing they use to edit and temp the film. <br>And while the themes are simple I do think they are structured in a unique enough way which builds emotional resonance through the gradual increase in chords/volume/speed/etc. Even Dunkirk is a relatively simple score theme wise, but is so technically complex.<br><br>And personally I’ve never been in love with Inception. I admire it on a technical level, but outside of “Time” I find it to be a fairly cold score. Obviously what it was meant to do so not a complaint, more of a personal preference thing.

In the track "Smashing The Ring" (It's actually featured on this site), there is a Gregorian style chant around 1:22 - does anyone know if this is a pre-existing/traditional chant that they used or did Hans (or someone else) write it? I really like it.


Leonard2016-10-28 21:54:22
This is indeed a pre-existing Greogorian chant. It's the chant "Requiem Aeternam" from the mass of the dead. If you like it you shoud check out the Requiem by Maurice Duruflé which is entirely based on the chants from the mass of the dead.

Dfault2016-05-11 18:35:19
That track in this preview, is that the first peak at the album? It seems more electronic (as Hans already pointed out)


...2016-05-11 19:03:00
There's not a chance in hell that that is from the actual score. That's just trailer music.


i2016-05-11 20:01:28
That music is shit.




Dfault2016-05-11 20:17:36
Never mind indeed, thought when i first saw it 2 days ago the it could be new music, listened to it now again, i doubt it ^^

matthew reply Replies: 1 || 2015-06-06 21:32:52
so I'm going home today but I couldn't because the road was blocked and what I'm seeing is Ron Howard basically directing a scene from Inferno in downtown Budapest. I know its crazy and dump but, I mean, my first thought was: this means HZ already did some serious early work for this!


Zimson2015-06-06 22:39:28
Likely, considering that he starts writing suites very early in the process with this kind of projects.
However we won't get to hear shit untill the movie is about to be released. ;)

... reply Replies: 4 || 2015-01-07 18:28:02
I just saw that inferno is no longer listed on hans' page...
Will he not score it or is it just not confirmed?


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-07 18:53:52
Well don't worry he will, it's just way too early, In The Heart Of The Sea isn't even released yet...


bro2015-01-07 19:36:18
I'm surprised Hans wasn't involved with that.


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-07 19:58:42
Good ol' Spanish tax laws! ;)

Anyways, even though he's been using Hans pretty consistently over the last decade or so, Ron Howard has never been a one-composer kind of guy.

What I'm more surprised about is that Inferno is even still being made. I kind of get the feeling that the world is over the whole Dan Brown religious thriller thing.


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-07 20:02:04
He would have, bro, without that Spanish Tax Break ! :P

Zimson reply Replies: 4 || 2014-11-01 16:41:53
So, is Hans really confirmed for Inferno now (since it already appears in his profile)?


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-01 17:17:19
Shhhhhhhh tell no one ! ;)


Zimson 2014-11-01 17:51:04
Ok, I'll keep it down. ;) Great news, though. I'm really interested in how he's going to approach it since this one will be different from the first 2.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-01 17:55:34
We've got some time before he starts though, the film got pushed from late 2015 to late 2016...


bro2014-11-01 20:35:26
Hans Zimmer wouldn't abandon Ron Howard anyway, they've been working together for a very long time now. Plus, this series' music belongs to Hans, they have his sonic identity and honestly only Lorne, Atli, Zanelli, or Zimmer could understand how to look to the future for a score for Inferno, and keeping the sonic identity of the previous scores.

anyone notice MOS similarities around the 6 minute mark in Science and Religion?

With what MOS track?


Azog, The Defiler2013-11-04 05:30:47
I just notice that some parts of Absurdity (The Lone Ranger) sounds similar to Air and the beginning of Citrine Cross (The Da Vinci Code)


rob2013-11-04 07:13:46
actually starts before the 6 min mark, starts more around the 5 minute mark and goes on for a few minutes. Not sure the exact track in MOS (ill find it) it just sounded similar when i was listening to Science and Religion


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-04 10:02:19
The Kal-El theme from Man of Steel (the one heard at the end of "Flight") is very similar to "Science and Religion", yes.


aldan2013-11-04 15:57:15
at 5:23 to be exact.

and the progression is really similar to MOS's "Goodbye My Son" 0:53 mark.

Aragorn reply Replies: 2 || 2013-07-10 00:34:36
Lorne must have used JNH's Eye For an Eye from Batman as a temp track when crafting "Immolation", because MAN do they sound the same.


Medigo2013-07-10 00:40:45
so what does this mean when you take "Am I not Merciful?" into account?


Aragorn2013-07-10 00:54:56
It means maybe JNH used Zimmer's "Am I Not Merciful" as a temp track when scoring that scene... :P So Immolation could be based off a temp track of a temp track, and thus we have musical Inception.

Hans posted an entire track from the movie "Rush" on facebook!!


Hybrid Soldier2013-02-26 10:28:28
It's from the film's website. Very cool track, second half is a Lorne cue, of course... :P


Ds2013-02-26 11:26:55
It reminds me of The Sweeney soundtrack! Isn't it frustrating for Lorne to work so hard with Hans without getting public recognition?


Hybrid Soldier2013-02-26 11:28:23
He just did a bunch of cues on that one. 4 I've been told. Some help like Rango. :)


Jo2013-02-27 10:47:19
Which means I like Lorne's cue better, reminds me of Inception a bit. Still interested to hear the full soundtrack... so many things coming up :)


matthew2013-02-27 13:03:13
this is from the Black Hawk Down library mixed with Transformers and Rabin's Gone in 60 seconds. but a very cool mix. very brave idea because the whole universe is going the complain about this, especially this site

Mycroft2012-03-10 16:44:27
Well, you could always just watch the movie yourself and listen for when stuff from the original soundtrack appears. Of course, that could get a bit tricky when you find stuff that's a reprise or remix of stuff on the OST and it might also leave you wanting more music than what you have.

As far as I know, no such track lists exist for what you seek.
