Where is the albumYou're right, you do not know anything ... I hope that something is published since the movie seems to have problemswhen are we gonna have some info on the Dark Phoenix score or even a snippet of what it sounds like. We've heard nothing about the score at all since it was announced that Zimmer was doing itLast episode tonight with the soundtrack after that. Gonna be a great night!!!!Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.
Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt SprengersThe only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.
Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?Very interesting interview. Thanks man!
Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.

Oh by far Modern Warfare 2 gets my vote! It the typical sound of a Remote Control score but the interpretations of the themes and the power of the orchestra was felt more in MW2. It had elements from previous scores that Zimmer has done, especially from Black Hawk Down, but almost better renditions of the cues. The 44-track complete score that has surfaced is a true gem of a find and if you have the chance to nab, jump on it! It's truly a fantastic listen! MW2 over Sherlock any day of the week! No offense Zimmer and Balfe, just my humble opinion.

I checked google images: Tina Guo... and it's just... wow. But I don't find her solos better than Martin ones.

You know MW2 is synth-only but percussion, violin and guitar?

@ Ele,

Indeed, a ''wow'' is in it's place!
Musically, I don't know... She is very good too, I can't hear the difference so much actually... In what way is Martin better ?

Brad reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-22 00:00:00
@Ele:

Yeah mostly. But I really think that Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe did a better job in MW2 than in Sherlock. Plus how can you go wrong with the composers from Two Steps From Hell giving you some additional music? You have the motion picture score genius himself, Zimmer, and probably the premiere motion picture advertising artist, TSFH, both working in unison on a video game! It doesn't get more epic than that...just listen to the score!

The "Discombobulate" track remembers me to Ennio Morricone's sound, for example... "Once upon a time in the west"... the theme for Cheyenne... and, of course, any sound of "Once upon a time in America"... So, this soundtrack is "homenage" to Morricone... I guess... =S

Ok, at first I really did not care for this score. I thought that it was too quirky and weird. The instrumentation and the thematic elements were over the top and kinda too far removed from what I was used to hearing in a Hans Zimmer score. But this is another score that just grows on you. I'm listening to it again right now and the funky instruments and the themes eventually start to stick in your head and you find yourself humming them. I appreciate the fresh take on a movie score, because this is really nothing like he's ever done before. There are tinges and there's definite inspiration from his previous action scores in some of the later cues, but this is truly an original score, which is quite a refreshing change from Mr. Zimmer. Great score...now I'm looking forward to "Inception" and the 3rd "Dark Knight" Sequel...those will be fantastic!

I listened to the score a few more times, I'm beginning to really enjoy it ! Sure it's a bit crazy, but so much fresher than Angels & Demons ! Maybe it isn't as "easy listening" as the former, but well, it sounds new and original (even if there are some good old Zimmerian action sequences, fans be reassured). Might be discombobulating (:p) at first, but in the long run I prefer such a score, quite daring in its way, trying new ideas... Good stuff !

HANS ZIMMER - Sherlock Holmes Watertower Music ****

Hans Zimmer’s score for Guy Ritchie’s new take on the famous detective is kind of marvellous. With a taut pulse running through it, the maverick composer of The Thin Red Line, Gladiator and The Dark Knight ) has written a dynamic score that bounces between rollicking action, sly comedy and urgent drama, deftly combining pounding rhythms and elegant melodies with idiosyncratic instrumentation (balaika, fiddle, tablas, double bass, dulcimer, banjo), spare orchestration and brooding electronica. Zimmer mixes European folk traditions (jig, waltz, polka, klezmer) and late 19th- century romanticism (Dvorák, Mahler), and juxtaposes exquisite lyricism with gleeful sturm und drang . The score teems with stylistic invention and visceral energy, as well as a surprising emotional power, notably on the 18-minute-long super cue Psychological Recovery . . . Six Months . Sherlock Holmes is both masterful and mercurial. www.water tower-music.com

I don't see a reason for all the negativity... However, I don't know what to say about it... I'll say nothing and instead I'm going to listen again :-)

Jaweco reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-19 00:00:00
I listened the album, well, I can't say much about it. In fact, I don't know what to think of it. Not bad, but weird and twisted... without images in front of your eyes, it's difficult to guess if it does indeed work well in the film or not. And... er... well, I'm not that interested in the film, I don't recognize the spirit of Holmes at all in the trailers, seems way too much modern. I don't know if I'll go see it, but if I don't, well, this score's lost on me. I'll give it another listen though, maybe I'll end up really liking it anyway. At least it sounds completely unique in its own way, Zimmer's gone back to experimenting after a comfortable Angels and Demons which was not that original.

Guys you may hate me forever but this is score is a big disappointment . As a zimmer fan , Its hard to believe he has wrote this !

The score lacks a defining theme through out the entire track list , Sounds noisy and and rough to ears .

I admire zimmer works alot , and he is my favorite composer of all times but I didnt like this score at all .

Didn't not like this one at all. To bad, at least Angels and MW2 are good.

As a hardcore Zimmer fan, I'm a little bit disappointed with Holmes.
It has it's moments, but nothing memorable. Any RC student could have written this.
Angels and Demons was a masterpiece, this is a rather mediocre effort, with interesting instrumentation.

I agree that this is not a killer album from the composer(s) that brought us scores like Angels & Demons but still even though the sample sound clips from Amazon initially put me off greatly, the full stream left me pleased overall. The music heard in "Marital Sabotage" and especially the later half of "Catatonictes" is absolutely terrific. Also "I Never Woke Up In Handcuffs Before", despite it's rather nosy mix, makes me smile every time I listen to it. Good stuff!
