New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br>youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nVB9Q77N9h-iKbNe7ZWrQHjiy_ vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br>youtube.com/watch?v=YGCFdR--u5M<br><br>Strength and honor!<br><br>One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol
"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????
I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !
I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happy

Can someone who has heard the whole album kinda give us a track by track description of the score? Things like pace, and instruments used. Also like what themes are used and how often they appear through out. Or if its just easier, maybe just give a comparisson of what each track sounds similar to in RC world.

The "Prime" theme is overused on the CD but the actual "Prime" track alone worth the price of the whole album in my opinions.

D A R T H reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-18 00:00:00
For the "good" track, here my 1st try :

01 - prime
08 - the fallen's arrival
04 - the shard
03 - N.E.S.T.
07 - heed our warning
10 - forest battle
06 - infinite white
09 - tomb of the primes
02 - einstein's wrong
05 - the fallen
11 - precious cargo
13 - i claim your sun
12 - matrix of leadership
14 - i rise, you fall

what do u think about it ?

Amazon saids "The Album" so i think its just the album with a behind the scenes bonus disc, or maybe a making of with linkin parks new song "new divide"...

@ DemonStar,

I think it's just a DVD with videoclips... or the score and the soundtrack with a dvd in one or something...

Delete the space between the F and G in "B0029Z8KF G" and it works. :)

Will keep an eye on that page to be sure.

The over score is just OK for me. Nothing great compared to the first one. I am really disappointed with the final outcome of this score. There is only 2 or 3 tracks that even hints of the original transformer theme.

Good lord, you guys are such hypocrites! You haven't heard the full score either, and already you're bashing it and people who are judging it. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but you should at least have the common decency to reserve judgement until you've heard it in full.

@Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I've rated only the album with its music and I think when I'll see the movie, my opinion would change about this THE FULL SCORE! but I unterstand this rating here for the album NOT the full score, because on this album I think the choiced tracks aren't the best ones from movie... we'll see...

@ Miles

The score is already out there, in one form or another, i'm listening to it right now.


@ everyone reading

Come on, guys, Transformers Score was a masterpiece in itself and bennefited from 2 other factors:
1 - We saw the movie, heard the music in it and loved it;
2 - They made us wait months for the official release;
Scores are made to fit the visuals in the film, judging this score without that visual reference is not fair.
Granted, the first one was filled with jems, "Autobots","Arrival(...)", "Optimus", "Bumblebee", "Skorponok", awesome themes that stand out, i'm willing to bet many of these will return in one form or another (I Rise, You Fll" is a fine example), and if so, i would love to have those on CD too.
But if you have 44 minutes to pick, will you give the fans something new or new takes on the old themes, even if they sound better than some cues in this score?
As i previously said, i take this score as an add-on to the first and once you see the movie, listen to this again, and i bet you'll like it a whole lot more.
And who here doesn't love "Prime" already?

Ah, another theme re-ash of sorts from the first score, listen to "Einstein Is Wrong" and tell me if you don't listen hints of Sam's theme in there.

@westfall

I agree with you totally, man! This is just what I thought after hearing those clips. This score is a grest add-on to the first. Of course, it is very good thing they gave us new material and not just variations of old cues. So, even if it is 44 min long, this score is a GREAT SECOND PART OF TRANSFORMERS! If Jablonsky would return to score the third one, we would have a very nice, if not excellent, MUSICAL TRILOGY, rich with themes almost like STAR WARS or something similar!

Why I can hear Sarah Connor Chronicles in this score?

I think it would nice fit to the screen.

Chris reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I remember when I first heard the score from the first movie before I even saw the film, and latched onto the incredible themes (Autobots, The All Spark, Optimus, Bumblebee, Arrival to Earth). My point is the Prime theme never reaches any one of those heights. Its derivative, and sounds almost "silly". I love the first score, and maybe I expected more rehashing, but not just "rehashing" for the sake of it. I expected the old themes in new rhythms and styles that expound on the sound Jablonsky already created. This score misses the mark. But like I said, maybe all the rest just got left off because it wasn't new.

I'm really disappointed about this score or better said, from this album - some good music on the album, but the most isn't from the actionscenes and hasn't any potential for re-listen for me! I'm sorry - for me: one listen and then take-off from my iPod

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
NEST = "Not Expertly Sewn Together" :D

Anyway, sounds pretty fun so far. Choir sounds different from the first score but still nice.

Hmm, after listening a few times to the whole album I think it's a good score but Transformers 1 was a lot better when it comes to themes or epicness.

Also it's a shame that there is only 40 minutes and chances are high that all the good stuff is once again left out of the album.

This album resembles the Gears Of War 2 soundtrack. Same ambience, tricks and effects are in place here.

Still a good effort and surely worth of 8/10.

Why in the world have 77 people rated this score already? What, we hear a 30 sec. sample and you think you can rate the entire score off of that? This is pitiful. One thing is certain, Jablonsky does not deserve a 77/100 for this score.

Chris reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I have to say I'm pretty disappointed with this score. Other than about 2 minutes of remixed (or rehashed) material from the first score, the rest is missing the thematic edge that the first one had. Even The Island had a great theme mixed in with its soundscapes, while this seems to not have a recognizable one. The new Prime theme is weak compared to the old stuff. Hopefully they just wanted to put new stuff on the CD and all the great themes are in the movie!

Track 3 must be written in capital letters as it stands for "Networked Elements: Supporters and Transformers".
