Interesting to see Lorne Balfe replacing Jablonsky now with Micheal Bay.6 Underground is totally crazy and Balfe’s score equals it.Also has emotion like 13 Hours.<br>Doesn’t beat His Dark Materials but a great scoreSorry, das ist doch ein Witz, Dortmund ist nicht dabei :(Way too many songs.<br>Lorne Balfe score nailed it.Great to see Bay working with Balfe now.This is an RCP website, those scores aren't by RCP composers...Power anthems ???? Obviously you haven’t watched the movie.They would not fit in this movie.<br><br>Balfe’s score is really cool and not expected.Already listened to it 4 times!
I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.

I am a conductor at an American University and am very interested in the full scores of the vocal/orchestral numbers. Are they available for rental or purchase? Please?

2 marvelous albums in 7 years - that's a bit low for a guy like Hans

To "No name"...what are these 2 Album in 7 years?!!!

no name, what a hell are you talking about? Hans has made 125 amazing albums in 19 years that's unbelievable, when John Williams made 132 albums in 57 years the man they say better than Hans :)

Hans has stated that he's going to be in semi-retirement for a while and focus more on score producing and stuff like that, alhough he will compose every now and again.

You cannot put the music of Ben Hur or Spartacus in a film like Angels & Demons. Hans gave the film what it needed and it works very well there and is also a good listening experience on CD.

And FYI I listen to a wide variety of scores from Bernard Herrmann and Jerry Goldsmith to most Remote Control scores and I still say Hans is one of the best modern film composers.

@ V.M.

yeah, elfman's planet of the apes was good, but no masterpiece. unless you are referring to the original, which, is pretty good, but is no masterpiece either.

also @ no name, you say zimmer either hasnt done any good, or that he's done some hard work and masterpieces, make up your mind.. O_o

@ no name - if theres no albums that can compare to crimson tide, then how do you explain the masterpieces that are the dark knight, batman begins, the da vinci code, angels and demons,kung fu panda,and black hawk down?

I don't understand how "Angels & Demons" can be rated 8/10... It's an "effect music", not a score with an identity. Somethimes I think film music will die soon... if people enjoy these mediocre works. History gave us masterpieces like "Gone With The Wind", "pLanet Of The Apes", "Ben Hur", "Spartacus", "Star Wars", "Back To The Future" etc... where the hell is a piece in this score can be rated more than 2/10??? I'm very sad to read these positive comments about a so poor music.

As I Think, here there isn't people who know film music, but only Hans Zimmer's Fake Film Music. Bye bye.

Because I think Hans prefers to work with a team in a relation of exchange of ideas.
However, you can see this method is good.
When you listen Jablonsky' compositions or each other, these men compose to extend the process that Hans has engaged in twenty years.

Hans isn't only a composer. He's a producer, score arranger, creator of new sounds.
If John Williams is also good, he didn't create several styles like Hans.

@ robert langdon

Recent album that could compare with Crimson Tide. There is none. All we get are sequels or albums like Holiday - one theme by Hans and additional music. Why John Williams can write and conduct entire album by himself and Hans can't? Why employing others? They can manage on their own. If not - not everyone can be composer. There are many kind of jobs they can do.

Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, and Klaus Badelt are absolutely stunning composers. My top three favourites of all time; even topping the great Beethoven [he got knocked down to fourth- ha].

Hans Zimmer is the best composer of all time. I love the music for Angels and Demons, and I also loved his music for the Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm in love with his music.

" Hans IS one of the most talented composers in the world. "

Not any more - name album that compares with Crimson Tide or even Black Hawk Down. You can't.

PS. James Newton Howard rules!
