Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.
I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.
Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.
So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!

What is the meaning of the first and the last track?!
Thanks...

PJ2 reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-14 00:00:00
It sounds great but I expected a different theme cause, after all, 'Angels and Demons' isn't neither a prequel nor a sequel of 'The DaVinci Code'. But wait and listen...

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-14 00:00:00
The movie trailers section of Apple.com has a sneak peek at Hans scoring the film, with a new variation on the Da Vinci Code theme. Check it out, it sounds great!

160 BPM probably means 160 Beats per Minute. This could mean the music has a very fast tempo !
I know Zimmer like to "comment" his own music in the track titles ("A Small Piece for Doumbek and Strings", "The Jablonsky Variations on a Theme by HZ", "Too Many Notes, Not Enough Rests"...) :P

So funny to see all these people exiting on this cd to be released !! As for me, I would wait to here it before rating the score ... but as each Zimmer's a masterpiece is coming...

Mr Tweedy, that is letter "I" + 60 BPM. ;-)

@Kusi81 -

Thanks for that, interesting. But here, '503' means -



------!!!SPOILERS!!!--------------------------



In Roman numerals 503 is written "DIII", and it refers to Galileo's work "Diagramma", the third work beginning with the letter 'D'.

Czar Mina i think you've never listened to any score by Hans before.

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-13 00:00:00
Not bad. We should have an integration of electronics and orchestra/choir here signifying Science and Religion respectively. Can't wait!

Assuming that Hans was indeed inspired to get violin solos on this project by James Newton Howard's work on Defiance, then perhaps he should talk to Michael Giacchino at some point to get some inspirations for track titles too!

Hans is now producing Steve S. Transformer 2 and Trevor Rabin's G-Force.

i don't think hans will take any substantial time off till after the third batman installment. he's currently got projects already on his plate for release this year and in the future. another james brooks film (2009 release maybe) and an animated film called rango (2011 release) from gore verbinski, just to name a few.

i suspect the tracks are 5 - 10 mins on average, with full orchestration and solos on the same tracks. this should be a good one, as i expect a lot of new material. does hans bring back the "thinking" theme for tom hanks' character? does he reprise chevaliers de sangreal? is the version in the trailer (which is different than da vinci) a peak at the new and expanded version? time will only tell.

Wonder if they are nine long tracks, too bad not more of hanz's score

dan reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-06 00:00:00
so i am guessing that Hans will take the rest of the year off because of concert schedules that was discussed last year.

Non pensavo ci fossero così tanti Italiani fan di Hans Zimmer!!! Sono molto contento!!! Ehi, mi raccomando, comprate il CD originale!!! ;-)

However, thanks to Falconet and DemonStar, I've seen only today that the Cover is ready and the tracklist too!!! I think it's really good!!!
But it's a bit stange to see "Violins solos"...what kind of music will be with "violin solo"?!
I've read on Wikipedia that Joshua Bell is one of the most important violinist now!!! Great!!!

However I've read the book and now I think that some track name are very strange...for example: the first and the last one: what is their meaning?!! I don't know...Then I waited a longer tracklist, but as DemonStar says, they should be very long...I hope it!!!
Bye!!!

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-05 00:00:00
Amazon has the tracklist now -

1. I60 BPM
2. God Particle
3. Air
4. Fire
5. Black Smoke
6. Science and Religion
7. Immolation
8. Election by Adoration
9. 503

They should be long tracks I think. From the track titles (judging by the corresponding book scenes) I deduce there'll be quite some action stuff too!
