'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....
Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...
Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.

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...

It's the best movie ever you say?
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...

Badguy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-17 00:00:00
I don't know,

but 160 BPM sounds like

THE PEACEMAKE Soundtrack.

Listening with more attention, and you will know.

Well, it's a typicall sound of Zimmer...

hahaha

Watched the film. Loved the film. Loved the score. Disappointed by the amount of fantastic, or shall I say FANTASTIC, music that's not on the CD. Why, why, why, WHY? :'-(

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

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-15 00:00:00
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.

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? ;-)

I will watch the movie and then report. :)

Although I don't know when I'll be able to watch it, for some reason they've delayed its release here in India...
