The Terminator Salvation video game correctly included the T-1000 motif, even if it wasn't used in the right context.<br><br>If Balfe stays, I'm hoping he leans more towards synth in the next score. If not, then I hope whoever takes over does.The samples sound great! Looking forward to hearing this!This score should've sounded more like Chappie...Alas, you are correct...<br><br>Since T3 all the scores have gone symphonic...Sure, there's percussion and some nifty SFX to go with the music, but as a whole it just doesn't fit and turns the movie into an action adventure. Beltrami and Elfman made good themes, but they just missed the point.<br><br>Terminator should very well sound synthetic.  <br><br>I figured with Remote Control behind the wheel this time, we'd get that. But in my opinion Balfe just went with Beltrami and Elfman and decided to turn this into a Jablonsky Transformers sounding score with more of your usual symphonic material. <br><br>Sure, it's using synths, but to be honest I would have preferred the synths Junkie used in Mad MAx over what was used here. Or hell, drag out Han Zimmer's harsh droning synths from the early 2000s...toss in some more anvil and marching band for the percussion and there you go. <br><br>I simply don't understand why this is so difficult. Or maybe it's too simple and that's why they keep missing the mark. <br><br>The Terminator Salvation video game score sounds closer to what I was hoping it would sound like than what we got.<br><br>Oh well...Nice themes though.FINALLY! :D
Listen carefully to the score. Its not hard to see who did the work.<br><br>Zimmer writes his simple, strong themes like the shen one and then Balfe gives them the ornate orchestrations and Powell-esque arrangements. Simple. Like I said here months ago on the batman page. Zimmer doesn't write this style of complicated cue himself. That's not his style. He doesn't do frilly and swirls and trumpets, he does austere and basic. Enter Balfe to spice it up.<br><br>Maybe that's why people are mixing up and thinking Powell did more than he did. Zimmer tunes + Balfe arrangement and you get a decent impression. Which was pretty much Megamind as well, a mini-Powell score in parts. Balfe is a very good arranger let's give him credit.Really looking forward to this.@Hybrid<br><br>Oh? That's interesting. Was it like a "Pirates" situation where everything was rushed or a producer thing?Powell did "Po Finds the Truth," apparently. I do find it pretty funny that it seems like the two primary composers didn't have as big a role as some of the secondary ones...And yet, this score is still great!Any ideas which scenes Powell actually worked on, if any?
There aren't much interviews because the projects didn't go that well during its production. And Powell actually didn't do much.I agree, to me the score mostly sounds like Lorne Balfe. <br><br>But I dunno, as I've said before, I don't think it's a case that Zimmer or Powell write a sketch and then sit back and drink coffee while the others do the work. I imagine it's very collaborative. <br><br>Unfortunately there's very few interviews/info about this score compared to a lot of others, which is a pity, because it's one of the best RCP collaborations. It's a really tight, well put-together, consistent, enjoyable score, and it's a shame none of the composers involved want to talk about it!I agree. Zimmer isn't heard obviously in much of this score, as has been repeatedly hashed out, but neither is Powell, if you ask me! It does seem like the additional guys did most of the writing here, albeit copiously using old themes and cues and doing so, presumably, under Powell and Zimmer's direction. I honestly don't see Zimmer *really* doing much of KFP3, either, even though his name is the main credit so far.<br><br>Thoughts?it seems that Intrada will release AGENT CODY BANKS on 7/7 :) source are the hints in the Intrada or FSM forum.To me most of this score sounds like Balfe's, with a few Zimmer spices here and there. I get the feeling that Powell got the co-credit because of the significant amount of stuff that were carried over from the original.
I suppose something went wrong on their last collaboration. Adrian's quote about the soundtrack album further encourages this idea.<br><br>Good riddance though. This is not Hans' area of specialty for me anyway.To me it sounds like a Zimmer theme, but put through a Powell arrangement/orchestration most of the time.forgiveness from Spain. I expect a lot of this musicWhat's the problem?You just COULD NOT wait 5 minutes ? You had to post this ? lol

I thought Zimmer only did the theme, but his crediting on all the tracks would suggest otherwise... Interesting.

I wondered if there's something wrong with my computer then. I'd been thinking, "Why the heck would Hybrid Soldier choose black text for his posts? The website is black!"

I wonder what's the deal. Then again, this particular computer doesn't display the Google logo anymore, or captchas.

Hybrid, it's good to see that you are able to differentiate yourself from all those fakers!

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.

cheers

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.
