Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!
Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lol

Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.

I hope that there will be at least 60 minutes of score, with some of the cues being 10 minutes long !
I'm just curious to discover how Jalonsky mixes his older themes with the new ones. Does "The Fallen" theme will replace, or alter the Decepticons theme ? Willl he make variations on themes such as "Sam at the Lake", "Scorponok" or "Sector 7" ?
And is "The Shard" theme a toned down variation of the "Allspark" theme ? So many questions... :D

The Fallen being a big bad god-like robot, I guess that his arrival's music will be much darker than anything like Arrival to Earth !

Will "Arrival to Earth" be reprised at all? Now, that's the mother of all questions :)

The version featured on this page IS the "commercial" score version that you can buy in stores. There could be a promo in a near future, but nothing announced yet.
We don't know at all what the music sounds like and which cue is featured on this CD (and which cue is missing !!).

This CD could eventually come up earlier than expected (it already happened with a lot of other scores), but anyway, it's only 10 days of patience now !

Is it possible, it will be a promo score, and we will have to wait another 2 month to get a full album (like 2 years ago) ?

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-12 00:00:00
Indeed, "Arrival To Earth" was the best track of the previous score IMO.

yes, you are right.. i judged too early.. the guitar synths in The Island are very impressive too..!

I certainly hope that it is not just 14 tracks, that seems a bit short. The first Transformers score was 20 and that felt right. If it is only 14 though, they had better be long cues or I'll be wanting a complete score right away.

Wicked... and it appears that just one track contains music by Linkin Park!

starscream reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-10 00:00:00
Guys, horrible news. I just heard the music in the beginning of the China scene where the soldiers are arriving in helicopters to fight a decepticon. The music was composed mostly of ugly Lincoln Park rock style instead of Steve Jablonsky. This is what I feared most about this film. I love Steve Jablonsky's music and that is what I was looking forward to. Go to SlashFilm.com and watch the two clips from Transformers 2. The first clip I hear Steve and that's good.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-10 00:00:00
@ Starscream,

thanks for the link! well linkin park could've done it more cheap, but it sounded ''okay.'' Only Ennio Morricone is allowed to use a guitar in filmmusic!

Yeah Adrian, that one sounds a lot better. I just noticed this website just put up the track listing and there's only one song containing music from Lincoln Park :). Who knows how many times they will play the song during the movie though. I'm going to try and stay positive. I can't wait to see this movie and hear the score!

Zimmer used guitars in The Rock but it sounded really good. I don't mind the guitars as long as they are used properly like in The Rock.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-09 00:00:00
Indeed.. they must've put it on there tonight!
The cover looks descent, nothing wrong with it :)
If it would be the official one, I'm missing:

''Music composed by Steve Jablonsky''
on the cover.

That's probably up to Sumthing Else, (a very good record company). But it would certainly interest people!
It really does sound good, doesnt it? For the first tracks we can hear!
