It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.
Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !

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.

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-05 00:00:00
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.

@ 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.

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

PS. James Newton Howard rules!
