No one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.
Aplusle, that's really well put actually.Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensation
Balfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.
I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.

Hans Zimmer is a genius. He's got THE german's music gene. His music touch at first the body, then the soul that's why he loves playing with direct and indirect feeling. Furthermore this is a a complex music. Tracks "Men at war" and "Sledge's humanity" are for sure its own compositions. So easy to recognize the Zimmer's style. Definitely a genius.

@ Julien,

I heard that Men at War was McNeely...! It sounds more like McNeely too... :P

Compare the two pages from Geoff Zanelli and Blake Neely... They put on their sites which they worked on.

I am so sorry, I always mix up the names of Joel McNeely and Blake Neely... Sorry Blake!

To ELE

Hans Zimmer doesn't compose only 2% from this score, be fair. This is a team score, and if one composer makes a track it is remade by the two others that's the meaning from "a team score". I think Zimmer has given the line to compose, and he didn't want to fall into the trap to make a "thin red line" bis which was too perfect.
Pacific score is not perfect, it is humble. I don't like this preconceived idea that Hans Zimmer is lazy. Such a master deserves the best consideration.

To Julien Brunet

Sorry but at www.geoffzanelli.com you can see which cues were "solely composed by Zanelli," which includes Sledge's Humanity. It's also the same theme as his Adagio For Peleliu and New Kind Of Bomb. From all what we know from Zanelli's, Neely's and Zimmer's sites, it is:

Zimmer/Neely co-wrote: Honor, Honor (For Oboe And Strings)
Zimmer wrote: Torn Souls, Iwo Jima
Neely wrote: You Have No Idea, Fallen Friend, We've Gone Respectable, Memories Of Home, Landing Peleliu, Where Do We Go From Here?, Men At Wat, War Is Hell and Homecoming
Zanelli wrote: With The Old Breed, Terrible Solomons, Nightfall On Okinawa, Private First Class Robert Leckie, Praying For You, Even The Trees Hate Us, Get The Wounded Aboard, Adagio For Peleliu, The Peleliu Hills, Dear Vera, Sledge's Humanity and New Kind Of Bomb

That's the cd. Does anyone know how to find out who wrote what parts of the actual show?

Great score too! Good job guys!

Exactly.

This is the composer breakdown according to itunes.

3, 16, 25 - HZ, GZ, BN
1, 7, 12, 14, 18, 23, - HZ, BN, GZ
8, 9, 13, 20 - GZ, HZ, BN
4, 10, 19 - GZ, BN, HZ
2, 15 - BN, HZ, GZ
5, 6, 11, 17, 21, 22, 24 - BN, GZ, HZ

Technically it still doesn't specify who did what since all three composers are still credited for each track, but the order is worth noting.

And it's not helping at all as Geoff Zanelli said which cues he did, and it doesn't match at all with that iTunes stuff... ;)

I say: Zimmer 2 % (main title) Zanelli 78 % Neely 20 %

Can we know the percentage of the composition? For example: Zimmer 50% - Zanelli 25% and Neely 25%...

Wow, just from the samples I'm REALLY looking forward to this album being released! I wanna be like one of the first to get it. It sounds a little like Pearl Harbor in places, but just different enough to not be a complete copy. Gosh, I can't wait for it! Zimmer at his best right here!
