Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Yes Adrian I know, but I think that the Webmasters should know much more about HZ new projects!
I've read on anther website that James Horner has released an interview about his new CD Avatar...great news! But we don't know anything about SH! Excuse me but I think this...

We do know the Sherlock Holmes score will be released by New Line Records (it was in a promotional ad of the label) but no other news at this point. I'm pretty sure it'll get a good release, it's a Hans Zimmer score and a Warner Bros. film!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-31 00:00:00
Don't excuse yourself, you're right... This site should go official, then they would have infos the minute they are infos :P

Ok...thanks Adrian, even if I haven't understood when you say: "they would have infos the minute they are infos"

Thn I've a question for you: the music that we can hear in the SH's trailer, is that Hans Zimmer's music?

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-29 00:00:00
@ Enrico,

Well, without any information, official or non-official, no one can write about it!

I just want to thank you Mr Zimmer for your fabulous music..
Especially this extraordinary solo violin at the end of the movie.
I felt already a great emotion with the orchestration during the first movie da vinci code and there I found it again but with the violin by josha bell and this feeling was so strong that I had tears. Thank you for this beautiful work.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-22 00:00:00
In the the "Angels, Demons, & Men in Skirts" interview, Zimmer said that the lyrics for "160 BPM" are just made-up vocalizations to suit the needs of the music.

Not that I'm complaining; it's an awesome track on an awesome album...

160 BPM (Beats Per Minute)

160 BPM is like Red Bull. Rest is a bit dissapointing (how could he end 503 in that moment?!?) but very listenable.
I'm giving 4/5 and hoping that Inception and Sherlock will rock.

zimmer, YOU ROCK

really love your music. . . Angels&Demons was the best of the best. Hope you score the "Lost Symbol" movie, if they adapt the book to the screen.

but this score will always be your best

To best of my knowledge enrico, hans never attended any formal music education. he has learned everything through collaboration nut studying books.

ok, Daw, i already did the expanded score, i gave my best, i think its really good!!

but i think that, like 'the da vinci code', 'angels and demons' won't have the expanded score!!!

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-11 00:00:00
Ehi guys I've a question for you...I've red on Wikipedia that Hans Zimmer attended the Hurtwood House in UK...but please, read here:

Expecially this one:

"Hurtwood is renowned for having outstanding theatre and media departments, and at around £10,000 per term, is the most expensive school in the UK."

My question is: how did Hans to atend the most expansive school in England?!!! I've no idea!!! Was Hans rich when he was young? I don't know...
However great Hans!!!

"making expanded score"... what does it mean ? Ripping DVD tracks ?

If it is the case, please come on ! Wait for a proper SFX-free version, even if it's a longer wait ! And do not waste your time making a CD with horrible sound quality, including gun sounds, people screaming, tires screeching etc... It really isn't qualitative.

luiszimmer: it's a really nice that you doing an expanded score!
The Arrival of teh Electors is a really really good track. It should be on the "Normal" score too! I love that song! ;)

ELe reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-10 00:00:00
Can't wait for expanded score. Although Arrival of Electors sound like Kingdom Of Heaven, its still cool track. Like many many others unreleased in Angels & Demons
