HBO's long-awaited follow-up to the epic "Band of Brothers" has a firm airdate.
The 10-part miniseries "The Pacific" will debut Sunday, March 14, and will air weekly.
The Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg-produced project is likely the most expensive TV movie/miniseries ever made and chronicles Marines fighting in the Pacific Theater during World War II.
Zanelli spent nearly the entirety of 2009 writing the score alongside Hans Zimmer and Blake Neely. "The Pacific" marks a return to the miniseries format for Zanelli, his second with Steven Spielberg.

the complete score is out on black neelys site. what a beauty in its full length :)
true. it's so beautiful
@mycroft: oh yes, of course blake. it was my phone with its auto-correction :P
Yeah...I thought it might have been something like that. I thought I'd save the trouble of people doing Google searches for Black Neely, but looking back on it, I suppose I probably didn't need to correct you, lol!
hey guys, does someone know, if there exists an expanded score of this beautiful piece of art?
and the score is no way boring. it has some magic in it. i was a huge fan before i've seen the series, but after the series, i just can't hear anything different then this score. and this is now since 3 months ^^
i know it's not right to ask here for any expanded scores, but I only want to know if there ARE any expanded versions of this here.
There is a scene in the second episode when Basilone finds his buddy Rodgriguez dead in the jungle. The piece played during this is one of the most moving in the entire series, but for the life of me I cant figure out which song it is. I don't think it's on the soundtrack. If anyone knows anything about this that can help me, I would appreciate it. I'd punch a baby for that 1 and half minutes of music.
boring music. the main theme is majestic and solomn.The entire soundtrack is boring,overall heartless,it is like drift wood in a giant empty ocean....it lacks heart,vigor and originality.Hanz Zimmer is lazy anymore..look at his works for the Lion King,and compare it to the pre-fabricated crap he now pumps out.
well it kind of reflects the battles in the pacific theater in some sense.
Greetings from Finland! This is definitely the best score I've heard from Hans Zimmer for a long time. It fits perfectly to the miniseries, and it is a cohesive listening experience on its own. The score flows like a continuing poem, and it is very lyrical and hauntingly beautiful piece of music. Thank you for creating this touching musical experience for us, Hans, Geoff and Blake! It is one of last year's best score albums.
My bigest problems about this album is: If I compare to Band of Brothers its a weak album. Why? The Pacific is almost like walking on a plain. Same all the time, can be beautifull, but after a few minutes you want something new. I don't complain that I don't like this soundtrack. It's just Kamen's score had differences between he tracks.
And the second is: a big number of tracks are unreleased. I wonder how many CDs would it be if a recording session will get out?
Mikel: Yeah, it`s definitely a good soundtrack. I was wondering what themes did Hans actualy compose? I know (from interviews and wikipedia) he composed the main theme, but what about (for example) Leckie`s theme (a little bit similar theme is used in Megamind as a love theme), Iwo Jima, etc.?
The music is beautiful and powerful--an absolutely perfect tribute to these brave men. I bought the CD after seeing the first episode, and listened to it many times before seeing the second episode. Now, after watching the entire series for the second time, the music is even more powerful. Hanz Zimmer has acheived what very few movie composers have; original music that is every bit as good as the visuals.
