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?

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 Zimmerís score for Guy Ritchieís 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 (DvorŠk, 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!
