This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now that’s good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

I listened to the Da Vinci Code CD again a few hours ago, and to me this is much much MUCH better than Angels and Demons, though I do like the latter. DVC stays a highlight in Zimmer's career, A&D is "just" a nice score as its best parts (to me) are themes from DVC, the "Science and Religion" track apart (my favorite). Action music leans more toward 90s' Zimmer's action scores, like Peacemaker, that doesn't sound "davincicodian" even if it's kinda cool in its own way... maybe a bit dated...

it the same thing that I said ¬¬ Jaweco... 160 BPM is based on the rhythm of THE PEACEMAKER = Devoe's Revenge... Listen it, guys!!

Im not an avid Zimmer fan but even I got to take my hat off to this guy. Amazing score, definitely one of his best. Melodic and hardcore, the choir is chilling!

I agree w/ you Patrick. I loved the album release, but I wanted more of the variations of the 'Chevaliers de Sangreal' stuff. I'm praying for a bootleg.

Great musical score in the movie, from the first note it was already the beautifull music based on 'Chevaliers de Sangreal'. But the CD is (for me) a disappointment because it's more action than 'CdS'-based themes (like in the movie). I hope there will be a longer CD later...

READ THE FUCKING BOOK BEFORE SEEING THE MOVIE!
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO!!! THE BOOK IS WAY MUCH BETTER!

Just saw the movie.
I have to admit I'm a little disappoint with Ron. The book is so good but he cut the most important part from the book. And there were scenes I'd love to see in the movie.
But the soundtrack.... WOW!
There was a scene where I literaly had chicken skin. The song and the image was just brilliant.

After seeing the film, it sounds like "H20" actually appears in the scene where (POSSIBLE SPOILER) it reveals who really branded the Camerlengo.

The movie was practically wall-to-wall action, and about 95% of the film contained music. And of course only about 45% of that music ended up on the CD...

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!! Spine tingeling, provocative, raise-the-hairs-on-my neck music! Thank you very much!!!

Do you know how much Hans Zimmer has earned for this soundtrack?!
Thanks...

THE PEACEMAKE Soundtrack.

Listening with more attention, and you will know.

What a splendid and powerful improvisation on the devine theme of The Chevaliers of Sangreal.
Congratulations, Hans! I recognized a reference to 'Kingdom of Heaven' of Harry Gregson-Williams, but once again the result was celestial! Greetings from Bart Soens

Just seen the movie - preferred the book to The Da Vinci Code and the movie is so much better too. The soundtrack is fantastic and really does the book justice - Hans Zimmer always delievers.

I noticed that in the movie is a LOT of music not featured in the soundtrack - propably w'll see a bootleg some time soon :D

I certainly hope so! I love the music that was composed for the movie, but I felt that the album presentation was a bit substandard.

54 minutes out of an 138 minute movie just doesn't cut it...

There hasn't been a bootleg for The Da Vinci Code yet (which is strange considering that about 95% of his scores receive the bootleg treatment), but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

My fingers crossed too! ;)

In the movie, I loved the unreleased tracks:

- right after the Main Titles - Chrous!!!! :-)
- near the end of the movie: running back to the Vatikan through the secret path


... then I've one question: The title of the bonus track is H2O, BUT in the movie, there's another music in the "water"-scene? ... or maybe I have listened wrong? ;-)
