Update regarding bonus tracks: Verizon Wireless has finally put up the album on VCast, and there is NO bonus tracks. Just the original album. I dont know where the rumor that VCast was the one with the tracks but they're definetly not there. The plot thickens...
Sorry, I don't like this score. The orchestration is soo weak, it ruins everything. Great musical ideas, but the performance is not good. After one listen, I like Mombasa and 528491. The last track was featured in the second trailer, altough not in this from.
I emailed warner bros about those bonustracks. They redirected me to the people who compiled the soundtrack. There are no bonustracks. There is just wrong information in the press statement that got send around. They said:
"...but there is only 1 version of the digital album with an identical tracklisting as the physical version"
So the press statement was wrong on http://press.warnerbrothers.com/site/preRelease.php
They also released the site www.inceptionscore.com an there is no mention of the bonus tracks.
And if you don't believe me contact warner too and you will get the same reply.
First time I listened to this score the only track that captivated me was Old Souls and after each time of listening my admiration grows to first 6:00 Minutes of this track ... The Score as a whole is a success, compared to other composers but compared to other Hans Zimmer's scores it is not a new level...
hi all i am really happy about the release of the sound track however i loved a piece which i must have and cant find anywhere... its the music to the 2nd inception trailer... this i believe was done by hans zimmer and his team and is not zack hemseys "mind heist" which sounds very similar. The music goes for 1:20 in length and is amazing. i would be very appreciative if anyone knew how / where i could get it.
I usually love Hans Zimmer but unfortunately this score doesn't do it for me. It all sounds fairly generic. And the last track (Time) which should be the showstopper sounds like I heard it 100 times before.
I prefer the other sides of Hans but I'm sure this score will fit the movie perfectly.
Anyway, this is just my opinion and anyone who reads this is entitled to have a different one.
Damn, this soundtrack is crazy beautiful. Abstracted taste of rock with electronics. Electric violins and cellos just going wild while maintaining it's ability to still convey a dramatic sense that this is a Zimmer score. Love every minute of it. It's a buy.
Mombasa is definitely a "black hawk down"-like ("synchrotone" track to make comparison),and BHD is older than Green Zone...so if someone was inspired (I insist on the "inspired"!!!) by another work,it was Powell,no?
