How black and white must your worldview be when not calling Lego Batman ONE OF THE GREATEST ANIMATION SCORES OF ALL TIME is called  "hatred". Believe it or not there is a bit of a spectrum between BEST EVER and WORST EVER. Although I imagine that's news to quite a lot of the people who frequent this site.Leave it to discuss the Lego score on the page reserved for it.<br><br>These comments about Balfe popping up everywhere are annoying.<br><br><br><br><br> <br>It's a bit annoying that every time I want to read some comments about the Wonder Woman soundtrack and click on a picture all I can read are praises for the Lego Batman score.<br><br>Please talk about Lego Batman in the Lego Batman section and keep this topic for Wonder Woman's music - which is not bad at all, by the way.Legobatman was fun score . I don't understand why some are mean about it . It's better than most Marvel scores and very memorable . Looking forward to his next animation filmNeither am I ? Lego Batman had cool music . Loved the songs also .
The emotional music in Lego Batman was some of the best writing was fantastic . Not sure why there is hatred for the sound track ? I only came across this web site because of Balfes music ....and some insights to the first POTC score. Seems he really did a lot for it. Interesting how no one really mentions Klaus Badelt beside lots of name dropping of other composers. The Lone Ranger bits are also very nice (another troubled production).Yeah I agree, sounds like Gollum's theme. Which I guess makes a weird kind of sense since both Gollum and Batman lead a double life xDFinal part of "Batman Suite" sounds like "The Lord of The Rings" lolReally again on that Lego Batman score ? Still don't know what everyone is raving about. The score of wonder woman. Liked it, but nothing memorable. For best the more emotional tracks stand out the best like Pain, Loss & Love
It's the same as One Day just re-scoredLego Batman is not even the best animated score this year let alone the second best all time.<br><br>The Lion King, Prince of Egypt, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, etc..<br><br><br><br>Dear Hans,<br><br>me and my wife visited the concert in Leipzig, Germany on May 24th 2017. We are big fans of Hans’ music and were in joyful anticipation to see him playing live some of our most favorite songs.<br><br>We had tickets for the best category right in front of the stage. By the way: we also visited John Williams and we have tickets for James Newton Howard as well.<br><br>But sadly this concert was a total disaster and we drove back home with nothing else than disappointment and anger. Compared to John Williams, where we were totally excited and told everybody about the great concert, we weren’t able to do this for the Hans Zimmer concert.<br><br>Let me explain in short, how we experienced this Hans’ concert.<br><br>1) Sound<br>The sound was horrible. The bass (especially sub-bass) was way to loud. Everything was booming, the sound was ‚muddy‘ and totally distorted. Vocals were hearable and understandable only if the band was playing very quitely.<br><br>At least, many people had to cover their ears because of the high loudness. And some people left the concert because of the bad sound. And just as a note: such high levels are harmful to health and if you like your fans to hear your music in the future, you shouldn’t kill their hearing ability!<br><br>Front of House was at the very end of the hall - so they didn’t hear how bad it was in front of the stage - and the most expensive seats.<br><br>I have to say this was no professional work. It seems like they just tried to kill any noise by turning up the volume to the max (like in the 80s) instead of optimizing sound and setup adjusted to the hall and the audience.<br><br>2) Lightshow and screen<br>The lightshow was a lowlight as well.<br><br>Almost the whole lightshow was based on strobe effects and flashing lights - no matter if the moving hads were flashing or the psychedelic moving images on the big screen were flickering and flashing. I was not able to watch this concert longer than a few seconds and then I had to close my eyes for a few seconds before I was able to watch again. Two hours of strobing and flickering lights, all the way from light to dark and back again in high frequencies was very exhausting. And it wasn’t only me. I saw a lot of people keeping their heads down and were watching the ground and not the stage.<br><br>Lucky me, I’m not an epileptic….<br><br>The big screen was used only for this irritating images and sometimes for pre-recorded! scenes, where some of the musicians were playing their instruments instead of showing the band or Hans’ playing live or if Hans’ is telling stories about the songs, his live or his friends and band colleagues.<br><br>At least this kind of lightshow and use of the big screen didn’t make it possible to see the artists faces. So it’s a bit like with the sound… You couldn’t hear them, but you couldn’t see them as well.<br><br><br>So why do you visit a concert? Right, to see the artist play and hear, what they play. Both wasn’t possible or a joy that day.<br><br>There are many clips on YouTube, where you can see and hear what we experienced. And no, the distorted sound is not caused by „bad mics“ of the smartphones...<br><br><br>I’m very sad to say this, but this was the worst concert of my live. I’m not able to tell anything good about this event - and everybody was expecting the total opposite. And to be honest - I wish I could get my money back, for the very first time in my live after visiting a concert. It was such a waste of time and money :(<br><br>Rick<br>Up, How to train your dragon and then Lego Batman are my top three. Defiantly best score of the year - AT THE MOMENT !!!Me too! Fun score. Surprised there are no more comments here.
Exactly - Lego batman could easily be for any D.C. Film not just for an animation . One of my favoritesGot to agree with you . Legit batman is in my top 5 for sure . It out a lot of super hero film soundtracks to shame . Excellent scoreWell.. I saw the movie, and I liked though not as much as the trilogy, but its very enjoyable in its own right. Capture much more of the firsts movies feeling that OST did. What I think I missed the most was Verbinski's weird sensibilities, grittiness and timming, but oh well as long as he doesn't want to return to this series, it will be something to miss for ever. <br><br>As for the Zanelli's score I loved it. I think is much better than Curse of the Black Pearl, which I think is the one we should compare with. Remember this new movie is, in theory the 1st one of a new part of the saga, so... compare it to AWE I think is very unfair... Not just the characters but the story itself must earn the epicness just as AWE did, thats how Zimmer desceibed it at the time. So this new one is the lowest end of Pirates epicness yet, or at least is the way I see it. If they keep doing more and Zenlli is still there, I'm sure it'll have to grow in scope and reach AWE highs and maybe even more.Agree with Edmund, (Shrek, Ice Age, Kung Fu Panda, Jungle Book...,) but each to his own... <br>What's the name of that celestial music when Volmer gives Hannah a new dress and says to her "You're a woman now" ?

Is it "true" the main theme was composed by HZ? Or is this just an urban legend. Considering this is a JB production; i imagine HZ was at the very least considered and possible involved in some way? Thanks!

Macejko reply Replies: 2 || 2012-12-09 21:22:00
I have a question, which was in my mind for a long time: didn't they consider Ramin Djawadi for this one? Because Prince of Persia would be a great fit for him, considering he is part iranian (persian).


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-10 12:02:26
Djawadi grew up in Germany, didn't he? Just because he has Iranian roots doesn't automatically make him the right choice. Correct me if I'm wrong but I THINK that the Persia shown in this movie probably has some slight differences to modern-day Iran. ;)


Macejko2012-12-10 12:31:50
You are, of course, right in every way, but I believe he knows a lot about iranian culture. I was just wondering, nothing more.

Exactly as I expected, boring musics...

Disney's composer choice was wrong. Music Composer should be Stuart Chatwood & Hans Zimmer.

I advice everybody to listen of Stuart Chatwood's Prince of Persia game-series soundtrack compositions from Youtube.


Snake2011-06-06 05:11:53
pureocean.

This is an amazing score. Too bad for you that you haven't listened to the soudtrack well. Not every score should have epic tracks. NO! Because if it has them, the score would be boring!!!! This score has everything that every film score should have; relaxed, serious, dramatic and epic tracks among others which means this score is very complete and selective. Like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Not every movie should have Hans Zimmer in charge of the music department (even I'm a fan of him). Besides, Zimmer wouldn't work with Chatwood because he only works with his disciples and former disciples such as Henry Jackman, Steve Jablosnky, Ramin Djawadi and even Harry Gregson-Williams himself. This was the right decision from Disney to put Harry Gregson-Williams in charge of the music because he's very well prepared for every film genre including this one and because he has experience working in the videogame industry if you didn't know and that's reason why I think it was the right decision for this movie. And by the way, the music from the game is good, but not that good. For the game, I always thought that Chatwood wasn't the right choice as a composer and Ubisoft should have included Michael Giacchino, Jeremy Soule or even Gregson-Williams because of their previous works in the videogame industry. Also, Chatwood only works on videogames, not in films.

I've been listening to the soundtrack over and over again and I can admitt that I love it!!

There are a lot of things that identify HGW as its composer - like it's own mark on the music, Hans has it as well - and there are some particular themes I love! There is one in particularlly that reminds me something though I can't quite put my finger on it!

However, loved the soundtrack.

I've heard it before watching the movie - a thing I like a lot - and I couldn't wait till I watched the movie and give my opinion about it as a whole.

As for the movie; well, I'm not a fan of the video-game - never played it before - but I loved the movie every much! It's very Disney and Jerry, if you know what I mean, and adding this wonderful score gives an epic dimension to the movie.

Great Jobs Harry and thank you for the amazing music you've created... ^_^

Sounds really good so far! The movie was awesome! Haven't had time to listen to the whole thing yet, but does anyone know if the music when Dastan uses The Dagger for the first time is on here? Possibly The Dagger's theme? Maybe it's "This Is No Ordinary Dagger?" Loved the music at that part, awesome.

It looks like I was right: Tracks 11, 15, 16, and 17 do have different names depending on whether it's a US or UK release. No matter; it's still a good score--rich, epic and exotic.

There are lots of 'borrowings' from other scores (HGW and others). But it works quite well in the movie. Especially to someone that doesn't know who HGW is (like my friends;).

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-24 00:00:00
Miles, I think what that person is referring to is the similarities between a small portion of the theme that starts around 0:37 in track 1 of Prince of Persia, and the love theme in Mummy Returns. Though it's too small to be called "Copy".

I too agree with HGW4, this is one of the better Gregson-Williams in recent years. I don't consider myself a hardcore Gregson-Williams fan, but I even enjoyed the bits that many people are calling "generic".

Two thumbs up!
