I really liked Gary Go's Friend Request from 2016 too.My choices for Avatar 2 would be:<br>Powell or Newton Howard^ 2018 I meanSteve really knocked it out of the park with “Nightmare”. I always appreciate horror scores that balance the use of themes with the more atonal music you normally get.<br><br>And the last horror score I remember loving was John Carpenter’s 2019 Halloween score. A great blend of old and new, especially for Carpenter fans like myself.@Knight Powell’s last score was HTTYD3....
@superultramegaa<br><br>Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site.I'm a huuuuuuge fan of the Freddy character & movies, and I really liked this remake, it didn't deserve the reputation it has... Especially when you compare to Freddy 2 or 6... lol<br><br>Music is great, best horror score Steve did with Amityville. But I also liked his more ambient horrors like Texas Chainsaws or Friday the 13th or Hitcher. But I can understand he probably wanted to step out of that genre and not end up being the new Harry Manfredini typecast !"I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style"<br><br>Well that's the thing, if you think "TF style" thinking of TF1 & 2, then it's not exactly completely Steve. So I stick to my comment... :) lolI recently saw both this movie and Friday the 13th (2009). And I have to say that Steve did a pretty good job with the music. Yes, I'm aware of the complaints and the whole "remakes suck" mentality. But still......I advice you to revisit these scores. You might be pleasantly surprised. <br><br>Speaking of horror scores.......I realized these days that it's been a while since we've heard a TRULY memorable and effective horror score. Or maybe it's just me and I've missed some really good ones...<br><br>Your thoughts on the matter, folks?^ Yet he’s still not quite a household name like some of his peers. HTTYD, Bourne, and Solo have all given him great exposure, but I feel like the general public doesn’t quite recognize him on the same level as Zimmer, Giacchino, or Williams.
Many thanks Hybrid!John Powell's last score was for a Star Wars movie, I don't think you could get any more mainstream exposure than that.So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score<br>--------------------------<br><br>There you go. Exactly how I expected it to be. They were simply helping each other. We've seen it multiple times before with other big scores.<br><br><br>Thanks for clearing it up.I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style, but yeah, I definitely see the Lorne involvement in there. Interesting though, our first official additional composer credit on this score!John Powell would be an amazing choice, if only to get him more mainstream exposure. <br><br>The thing is, if you strip away the drums, sound design, and harsh-mixing Tom is a actually a pretty gifted “classical” composer imo. His string writing has always impressed me, and seeing his use of woodwinds in Alita definitely proved that he can write outside of the mold Hollywood had put him in post-Mad Max.<br><br>Avatar 2 is most likely going to need a pretty diverse score, if the first one is any indicator. James Horner combined traditional orchestra, tribal drums, ethnic elements, electronics, and masculine action writing. All of which I could see Tom doing quite well.
Chrono order goes like this :<br><br>Dublin 1996<br>Driving<br>Deceit<br>Second Warning<br>First Warning<br>Research<br>Conversations<br>The Beating<br>Traynor Lies<br>Never Show Your Fear<br>Preparations<br>The Killing<br>Bad News<br>The Funeral<br>One More Day<br><br>But some tracks have cues edited together, and some titles are not exactly perfect lol...Atli is fine in Iceland, maybe he just doesn't want to look for trouble anymore... :)Lorne did work on this score. At the very end, when the film (and therefore, the score) was getting butchered by editors to shorten it, there was very little time to rework the score to adapt it to the new cut. So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score, but Battlefield is indeed a LB cue (it sounds nothing like SJ).<br><br>Not the first time this happened. Lorne extensively worked on TF1 & 2 (credited), but also helped (uncredited) on TF3 (there again, his assistant back then Andrew K. was credited).Alright, that's ^^ a bit too far, but I agree that there's not enough evidence to really support the theory. The only compositions that seem like Balfe might have had a hand in are the various reprises of "Bumblebee" (aka the Journey theme) that was always rumored to be co-composed by Balfe, and the big choral section in "Your Voice" when the knights begin attacking Optimus, as that is also a progression I associate heavily with Balfe's involvement in the first 2 scores. But that's still not enough to prove that he was involved.<br><br>By the way Bayhem, I don't believe that John Williams or Howard Shore have lied about doing their work by themselves. John Williams has worked with William Ross and probably others, but I don't think they're lying when they say they've done a score themselves. They seem like they can compose on their own just fine.Yep, if "deserving" existed, Atli would've gotten many more movies than he currently does.

Oh my god! I´m shaking...what an amazing Soundtrack.It goes right into my heart. Thank you so much for that wonderful music!!

"God Particle" was used in the teaser trailer!!!!!

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-14 00:00:00
Only HZ can produce something like 160 BPM with sampled chorus. The structure, the pacing and above all, the overall sound of this cue alone is absolutely fantastic! The rest is nothing short of spectacular either! Can't wait for Sherlock Holmes now!

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-14 00:00:00
I love every track on here. Can't wait to watch the movie!

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-14 00:00:00
By the way, is it me or there is a reference to the Joker's theme at the end of "Black Smoke"? :-D

Jaweco reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-14 00:00:00
Well, if so, you could hear a "reference" to Frost/Nixon in "Fire"... it somehow struck me. :p

Received the CD two days ago. After a first listen quite disconcerting, I've come to like it. It's definitely NOT what I wanted it to be... but it's still good! Better not to think too much of Da Vinci Code when listening it though, it's different even if themes and motifs are actually there. I love the "Science and Religion" track, probably my favorite. ^^

Deakins reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-14 00:00:00
Great music less like the music from "Citrine Cross" theme reprise(with children choir) at movie's end.
The score isn't what I wait, like the movie.. But it's better than Da Vinci Code.

The reprise of 'Chevaliers de Sangreal' would be better in the movie than in credits..(switch with Science and Religion's end for example)
'Science and Religion' is a sad reprise of 'Last Samurai' and 'Thin Red Line' but less good..

RiBa reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-14 00:00:00
The best tracks are easily 503 and bonus track H20. They're (in my humble opinion) his best songs ever, together with "Molossus" from The Dark Knight, and "Chevaliers de Sangreal" from The Da Vinci Code. Masterful music at it's best.

With love, Swedish movie/music fan. <3

Evelyn reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-12 00:00:00
Hey, Amelie... call down!
The number 503 can be seen in the book! It's a Illuminati code, a reference! Langdon discouvers that when they are in the archieves!
Read it and you'll understand!
The I60BPM is as No Name said... it has to do with the rhytm!
Alright?? Did this answered your question?
Are you calm?

Amelie reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-12 00:00:00

Adrian,
How can I get this "Illuminati" version album art? Thanks...

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-11 00:00:00
You can order from a German store, such as www.amazon.de

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-11 00:00:00
Yes, amazon.de is an option but I found it via JPC.de (German)
You can also order it via bol.com (Dutch), that's what I did.

Why is there a so bad vote?! Only 75 on 100?! Bo?!! I don't think that this great CD merit this vote...

Amelie reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-11 00:00:00
I have some questions.. hope you can answer me!
Why does the track n.1 is called "I60 BPM" and why is track n. 9 called "503"? I read the book and I don't remember seeing anything about it!

Thanks XD

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-11 00:00:00
Listen the soundtrack and watch the movie. Your answers are inside..

I60 BPM - 160 beats per minute, rhytm of the track.
503 - Watch the movie!!! Or read Dan Brown's Book.

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-10 00:00:00
The H2O track is quite similar to the music in "Air", but still nice to have. I think the CD is very well made. Excellent score!

@DemonStar

hmm, I hope there will be another bonus track named earth! :-)

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-05-10 00:00:00
Amen! :D

Though I have a feeling perhaps the music from the Earth scene could be in one of the tracks here. Hans does that a lot after all. We'll see after the movie is released! :)

Gotta keep an eye on iTunes. The Apple guys often have exclusive tracks for Sony Classical albums.
