Stairs and rooftops is a fantastic track.Does anyone know why Kraemer wasnít used?<br>I was at Admiralspalast on Sunday evening and I completely agree with what you wrote!Guys... he-he's not getting it...was that segment in any of the bounus tracks? from LALA LAnd.I honestly love stairs and rooftops that track I could listen to that segment from about 3:25-4:20 over and over again. so I hope balfe does it again
Rogue Nation was a great soundtrack but Fallout has to be one of the best action scores since The Dark Knight.I hope they keep Balfe on for the next 2 films@Edmund Not at all! I think Kraemerís score honestly is one of the best in the series, especially with the way he approached the material. On the same token though, I am also a massive fan of what Balfe did. A different approach for sure, but it still helped elevate the film much in the way Fury Roadís score did for that film. <br><br>Personally though, I feel like bringing a new composer on board to give a different take would be the most ideal, but thatís just me.From the way the director and editor talks about Balfe and his music On the DVD I doubt they would ever  get Kraemer back.Even Cruise has said itís the best Mission soundtrack they have ever had .<br><br>The score to Fallout makes the film which the last time I felt this was Dunkirk.I'm hoping for the return of Kraemer but that's sure to be an unpopular opinion around hereGoldenthal would be ideal - absolutely, but is there anything in Villeneuve's ouvre to merit such a grandiose score? If Balfe gets his dirty mittens on this, it will sound like any-other-thing. At the same time. Junkie's Mortal Engines is a huge orchestral fantasy score, precisely the kind that this film may deem old fashioned (I dare compare Junk XL to Krull with this score - they are as good!). It will probably just be Andrew Kaczxynski (under the Hans Zimmer label) farting into a tube and Barfe blasting out the same old string figure, but now, IMPORTANTLY, with Moroccan bowls (as his silly percussion for MI: Fallout seemed to be so impressive as it used bongo drums - JUST LIKE SCHIFRIN!! Yeah).
r/whooshFor sure!! Omg I honestly can't wait for this one, we where gonna get 2 songs for httyd 2 featuring Jonsi, but they stuck with "Flying with Mother" instead. I really would have liked to see Jonsi put lyrics to "romantic flight" for a hiccup and astrid wedding scene. Make it peaceful and sad :'( <br>Love these movies so much. I feel like watching them and listening to their scores brings back the 11 year old in me, obsessed with orchestra and dragons. A total nerd. I miss those days where everything was filled with magic, and John Powell's scores were at the center of it all <3Mission Impossible 7 AND 8 has just been announced. <br><br>Balfes score for Fallout was the best of the series .Not sure how he beats thatís scoreLLL never does digital releases of older film scores. Only new ones like mission impossible 5 and 6Actually, Transformers and The Island were both directed by Michael Bay.
Will there be a digital release?LLL ... really??? OMG my birthday month! :OLooking forward to hearing this one. Looks like this is the first score since Divergent not to use his over-harsh "Mad Max" mixing that he's been using on all his scores from 300 to present.Dear Mr. Zimmer,<br><br>I went to tonights concert (January 13th, 2019) of your music in the Admiralspalast in Berlin and was thoroughly disappointed. Bad acoustics, weak sound. On the screen behind the orchestra they showed perhaps 10% original pictures from the movie soundtrack they played, most of it what they showed were unrelated cartoons. Many tracks of your music like Inception were hardly recognizable, none of your other tracks were played in a professional fashion. Why do you allow them to use your name for such a rip-off?<br><br>Best regards<br><br>Ralf MathiesenI appreciate your posting these credits recently, but Hybrid, would you mind weighing in on their veracity?

Yes, way to go, Hans! It's great that he gets the recognition he deserves. It's about time to have him nominated again since Gladiator.

Yes Giacchino has made a wonderful score but I think you are in mistake...Sherlock Holmes has a great ideas that have never been used before!

I hate to admit that I am only recently (being in the last two years) a fan of Hans Zimmer, but only because I didn't really learn to appreciate the music in films until then. Now, however, I love Hans Zimmer more than anything and his music brings me to heights in which I cannot even describe. This soundtrack is no acception...it is simply incredible. I love the new techniques he uses with not having necessarily the "big band" sound, like in the Pirates movies, but with single instrumentational sounds. It just blows me away. He is the definition of a musical genius.

Adrian,

Thanks for the reply. If that is the case, that is unfortunate because that means I'll probably never get a copy of the track. :-/ If anyone else has any thoughts on the issue, I'd love to hear them.

As for Dredger, I think he actually *is* French, and Sherlock knew that from the first word that Dredger speaks (English, but with a French accent) upon his arrival in the midget's house. The joke then, is that the 'muscle' of the bad guys is actually quite cultural and respectful of honor. I think this is the case given his look of respect when he sees that Sherlock can fight, as well as their continued banter in French. Plus, think about it - why would a London street level thug speak French if he was English? ;)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-28 00:00:00
@ Daniel
If I'm correct the dude is not French, he just happens to speak French... How would Sherlock even know he is French? I think that's joke! Or am I wrong?

As for the music... When I heard it, I assumed it was Hans... The score in the film is million times longer than on this CD, so the chance is big it's a Zimmer-piece that wasn't put on the disc.

Daniel reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-27 00:00:00
I'm a bit confused, and would really appreciate any help anyone could give. In the movie, during the 1st fight scene with Dredger (the big Frenchman), an Irish-sounding piece of music plays. It has no lyrics, and is not credited separately in the credits at the end of the movie. Is this a piece that HZ wrote that he just didn't put on the soundtrack? I really enjoyed it, as short as it was, and if anyone recognized what it is I would really appreciate your help.

~Daniel~

Plz note: I'm *not* talking about Rocky Road to Dublin.

the soundtrack is what made the movie so sensational. "discombobulated" is brilliant. i cant wait for the sequel of this movie. i hope the soundtrack in that is equally good as well..

About Sherlock Holmes 5.1

File this one under "Why Even Bother?!" As per the instructions included in the CD;

Instructions For Downloading and Playing 5.1 Surround Files

1. Go to exclusive website using enhanced CD and click on button to download 5.1 Surround Sound Files
2. Unzip the file "SherlockSurround.zip"
3. Import WAV files and burn audio CD using any burning software (iTunes, Nero, Toast, etc.)
4. Play disc in any home theater system that supports 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic ll audio

Don't waste your time. The actual CD sounds virtually indistinguishable from the "PLll surround encoded" burned disc. Both played via HDMI (PCM stream) to receiver with PLll decoding. Comparing the wav file images from both enhanced CD and dowloaded files (via Wavasaur) reveal no difference - they are both stereo 16/44 files. The music itself while I'm sure complimentary to the viewing of the film, does not really stand up well on its own (IMO).

If you want to enjoy multichannel download files you are much better off buying the grammy nominated David Huber's "Colab" disc from CD Baby (there is also a DTS CD available). The 5.1 MP3 files are actually multichannel and decode VERY discretely.

You would think that with the resources available to Warner Bros and multi Acadamy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer, they could come up with something more sophisticated than this fairy dust - especially when compared to the efforts of someone like Mr. Huber who is self released and has what appears to be very limited resources.

Totally understand you there, Matthew. Sometimes there'll be a lot of music in an actual movie that isn't in the released soundtrack, which is also the case with all three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, sadly.

no, I'm yust talking about the release cd. rotf is too short. it's almost like a yoke. but avatar has 14 tracks too yust like rotf and it's so long. so who did this with the trans 2 score cd? Length : 43'56???? ohhhh yust great!! and the cd is only about optimus. yeah I know the movie is about optimus...

Mich reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-17 00:00:00
Was someone saying Hans Zimmer had something to do with the Avatar soundtrack? I thought James Horner composed that?
I can't see Mr. Zimmer doing a movie like Avatar. Dunno why, but it just doesn't seem his thing.

And Matthew, I'm not sure what sound exactly you're referring to, but I can tell you different instruments make all kinds of weird sounds when played different ways, so there's really no unique sound that "belongs" to any one movie. More specifically, every composer has unique styles and quirky techniques, so maybe you're hearing some similarities between the two tracks, which is completely possible.
