I've been reading about the score, and Zimmer and Nolan included that in there on purpose to lend the climax something extra--something like that, anyway.
In other news, I am so looking forward to getting this score, but I'm going to hold off on getting it until I see the movie. That way, I won't run the risk of spoiling the film by letting the music clue me in on the mood.
Has anyone heard the track "Waiting For A Train"? because i was just wondering why the hell there's a cue from "Je ne regrette rien" - Edith Piaf, it plays at 7min I believe...can anyone share their thoughts on this, please?
Has anyone here actually found the Inception album on Verizon Wireless? I mean, I guess its as good a place as any to buy it but I cant find any mention of any bonus tracks, let alone the album at all.
Well, not really true. If The Dark Knight had not have been the hit it was, we would never have got the complete score this soon. Only if a movie is a hit, is there any chance of getting an expanded album. And we're talking MONDO hit. We have yet to get the expanded Batman Begins score and it did well. Theres scores from the 80's that are just now finally getting complete presentation on disc. If INCEPTION does anywhere near the biz as Dark Knight, we might get a complete score.
I have a feeling that this is maybe just a half of the whole score... They always do that. If you want full score you will have to pay again, just like with the Dark Knight when they released "collectors edition". Just to take away the last penny out of you. And then they complain when people download it from the internet....
Whoa! Just listened to the samples on Amazon.com and all I can say is, WOW! Hans Zimmer does it once again! His music is so pure and amazing, and I swear that Dream Within A Dream will be one of the best tracks on the album. And it's worth noting that most, if not all, of the scores that Lorne Balfe is involved in are amazing. That guy has real promise. Back to Inception though; this score is like The Dark Knight and Batman Begins...with a theme! Great stuff!
Your an obvious Troll. You don't know jack about music and if you love Hans so much thats great but please don't diss one of the great composers of our time. It will just make you look like an ignorant ass.
Victor - you obviously do not know much about John Williams then ... he's done a whole lot more other than Star Wars (which is superb) ... Indiana Jones - Raider's of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade, Harry Potter series, Jurassic Park, Superman ... you get the idea the list is NOT LIMITED TO STAR WARS. But here we are on Hans Zimmer's page ... Hans has a brilliant ability to bring drama and suspense to the lounge room of his fans ... Crimson Tide is one of my all time favourites!!
Its Verizon Wireless's music download service. I used to work for them and they are the most rotton company. It seems like something they would do, but the fact that Nolan and WB went for it is even more sad. You shouldnt have to subscribe to a cell phone service to get a soundtrack. Actually the sad thing is, I dont think they have a way to copy tracks to your computer so we are all SOL as far as those are concerned. Not even pirates will be able to put those up.
lol, why are there 350 votes on something that hasn't been released (yet)?? I kindly suggest to moderator to delete all of the votes on the release day and to reset the counter! I really don't see the point!
Godt damn...... I just love your music. So strong feelings in the songs. And blood pumping! Einstein was good in math. You are the music world Einstein. And I am 21, and I have enjoyd your music, all my life! Wanted to make my own music, but compare to you, it dont sound any good.. hehe... I think i need to put my half German cells bether to gether.. But anyway. Love your music, may you never stop to do what you do best. and it aint hard to know what that is!
how can anyone compare John Williams and Hans Zimmer. they are not even in the same league. John Williams is a real composer who knows music. Hans Zimmer is a phony who made it in Hollywood because of his political talent with the directors and studios rather than his music. he has done a whole career using the same chord progressions.
It's been years since he came up with real original theme. The Lion King was mostly Elton john. even Gladiator ( his best score by far) was very inspired by Holst's "The Planets", so much so that Holst's family sued him over copyright infringement. Star Wars score was also inspire by The Planets, the difference is that Jw is so brilliant he made it his own and it is classic that will be played in classical concerts hall for many years to come.
The reason why some musician fine him appealing, it is because his music can be reproduced quite easily with the right sound libraries. It makes the wanna be composers feel, they could maybe make it in Hollywood.
The truth is Hans Zimmer will never surround himself with real composers, he would be out-shined. rather, he prefers to pick musicians that are even more mediocre than him, and that make him look like a star.
Maybe it is the reason he only received 1 oscar and that directors such as Ridley Scott replaced him. No one can imagine George Lucas or Steven Spielberg ever firing John Williams. Sorry.
