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!

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.

Absolutely agree with DemonStar...

@ 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!
