Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4
This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.
Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>
Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>It's a half-truth to everyone who makes up the RCP team, unfortunately. <br><br>But I honestly doubt that ANYONE wants to work with XL.<br><br>Snyder worked with him 3 times. 300, BvS and Man of Steel. Sometimes I even get the impression that he's always liked Tom's approach more than Zimmer's approach. See all the percussion and synths of all those scores that are far more present in the Xl field than Zimmer's.Got this today..well not my music type so pass it...Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Jackman said he wrote "most of it".

So I guess HZ did some sort of Themes Suite and then let Henry do the score...

Mike (OTM)2018-02-27 19:43:58
This is an old post, and your more recent comment says HZ didn't write anything.....but End Titles is on his which is it? I'm curious.

how many tracks Hans did for this movie or which one? Thank you!!

Hybrid Soldier2013-12-26 20:11:39
None !

He produced the score... Jackman did it with help by Matt Margeson & Noah Sorota ! :)

Yeah I agree putting his name on the cover wasn't bright LOL... Actually in the movie itself the credit is composer for Henry & producer for Hans... ;)

Pete2013-12-26 20:14:26
Oh, thank you very much, Hybrid!! :)

Edmund Meinerts2013-12-27 01:17:38
How long before MacArthur claims that actually, most of it was probably done by Hans?

MacArthur2013-12-27 05:25:24
I won't!

Cause I know that this one wasn't.

Oh wait...Zimmer did All of it. lol. :)

MacArthur reply Replies: 1 || 2013-08-02 00:33:51
I Thought Zimmer did this music with Henry Jackman as credited

MacArthur2013-09-05 22:02:20
I thought Zimmer Did this Music as well

I was just thinking about new trailer music to Superman, and could just imagine a temp track with Track #1 from this score. From the beginning, scenes of a baby Superman, Kal-El, traveling to Earth, his arrival, discovering abilities, scenes of destruction, him arriving in Metropolis and, towards the end of the track, when the heroic theme kicks in, Superman ripping open his shirt to show the symbol. Great stuff, I think.

Hybrid, what say u? :)

I'd really like to know if any of this was actually composed or at least co-composed by Zimmer, 'cause the detailed track info inside the booklet lists all tracks under Henry Jackman. I bet Hans is on this in name only, as he was with HGW's The Whole Wide World and who knows what else...

That's a strange method of releasing... But it sounds like very good marketing!

the absence of thematic material is a shame, but it is great listening. There's not one bad track and some really beautiful moments. the medieval additional music is a real treat as well. Well done Hans and Henry.

I'm a little interested who wrote what but what's more interesting is that Henri 4 takes us to the past not only because of the subject matter! The film was shown on European Film Market on February 7th 2009 which means that the music was composed as early as in 2008 while Zimmer experiments with more soloists, less orchestra started with Angels and Demons in 2009. In that way it IS music from the past;)

I hear some similarities to Da-Vinci Code too, listen to the string ostinatos in the second half of the first tracks. :-)

I'm liking the score BTW! "Henri's Escape" is by far the best action track so far.

i'm hearing at it right now :) the action-cues are not that good, but those slow passages with the guitar and very slow waving strings... beautiful!
