This mean the recording sessions?First Jedi Fallen Order, now Solo? I love this news! And I get the distinct feeling both releases are being used to determine interest in further Star Wars expanded score releases further down the line! Only real bummer is no CD to go on the shelf, but I'll take this any way it comes!He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Very curiousFantastic! Looking forward to that variation on Duel of the Fates! Now the only complete Powell collection I'm looking for is HTTYD 3.It's coming in November!!! This is so cool!!
Not referring you, superEXPANDED RELEASE SON!!!!!!!!!! LET'S GO!You mean that's GREAT news !Now that’s good news!I hear Harry Potter in tracks like "Playful Secrets" and "Labyrinths & Humps". <br><br>Yes i realize Elfman has had similar sounds to those tracks too, but i think Steve is at the very least trying to homage Harry Potter in a few sections. <br><br>And personally I think the main theme is the most Pirates-like, but that's why i said there's still Zimmer influence, (yes i know a few tracks sound like King Arthur too), but it's not overwhelming for the most part.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)<br><br>Coming soon to digital exclusive streaming: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film]<br><br>All cues + the original unedited version of the end credits suite!I never made the statement that only orchestral scores are good. I like the TF movies, Halo soundtracks, a lot of Hans Zimmer works including Interstellar. <br><br>However, i have little appreciation or interest in scores with little to no melody besides basic progressions. I need a heart to my score, not just music that works for the movie.Agree, solid work, but dosen't sound like John Williams, more like Danny Elfman.<br><br>Also, the main theme sounds like Pirates of the Caribbeanwhat an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.<br><br>Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.<br><br>i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!<br><br>i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>
I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',

Simple and beautiful... not match for the Kamen's work though in Band of Brothers. I like the most "Honor - Main Title Theme", "With The Old Breed", "Landing Peleliu" and "Honor (For Oboe And Strings)".

Thank you Hans, Geoff and Blake!

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!

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... ;)

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2010-03-05 00:00:00
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.

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

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-03-03 00:00:00
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!
