I'm disappointed Ramin Djawadi isn't returning to score Wrath of the Titans. Instead, Javier Navarrett is scoring the film. Hopefully some of Djawadi's themes remain in there, but I also look forward to some new material
True, but it's also a good chance for Navarrete to get his big break. He had some pretty good fantasy stuff on Pan's Labyrinth and Inkheart, so it'll be cool to hear what he comes up with on a big-budget blockbuster. Unfortunately, I doubt he'll keep Djawadi's themes in there...not sure why, but it just seems unlikely.
Also, it gives Djawadi more time to work on A Clash of Kings (or Game of Thrones Season 2, what have you). I thought the first one could have been Djawadi's best score if there had been less underscore and the synth orchestra didn't sound quite so crappy (hopefully HBO gives him a bigger budget this time around).
I have the same feeling about Navarrette not keeping Djawadi's theme in there. I never heard Game of Thrones, I've never even seen it as I don't have HBO or Showtime or whatever channel it's on.
Let me guess, the OST + Zanelli cues from his website ...and perhaps the Armstrong thingy ripped from the end credits, eh ?
I don't know a thing about this OST or what extra material is available for it, but it sure as hell was not difficult for someone to take what little expanded material we had from Inception and turn it into a "2CD expanded score". It was 88 minutes long, and the typical CD holds like 80 minutes, so yeah, I can see why you'd have to call it 2CD but it was hardly expanded--just the iTunes bonus tracks, the end credits ripped from the DVD, and that JunkieXL remix track. Ooh, big fancy bootleg score--something special! NOT!!
So, yeah, you're probably about right on that one, Per.
Areozz, noone called it big and fancy. If a bootleg has extra music, its expanded, if its a little amount of music or not. Why get so fucking pissed off about it? Jesus Christ.
What I was saying is that the 2CD expanded bootleg of Inception was not incredibly expanded. I consider something expanded when it contains material that was not available prior to its release or leaking. At the time that bootleg came out, everything that was on it was already available elsewhere. All someone did was rearrange the OST and add in the other tracks I mentioned before.
And why do people have to get so mad? Slinging around bad words like you do is a sign of weakness. I can have a perfectly civilized and effective argument with someone without uttering a single bad word. People think those words mean something. They used to, but they don't anymore because of people like you. Go watch a few videos by the Angry Video Game Nerd and then tell me what you think. Meaningless, eh?--And a sign of weakness!

And yes Hybrid, I'm sure these are old and that there's plenty more before you tell me and rub it in my face. I love this score, I want more of it
Is this topic really opened back up again? Is it because the site got a make-over? Well, whatever the reason is - I'm glad. I LOVE this score, it's awesome. I can't believe how many people trash-talked it, it's insulting. Happy it's opened up again, this way I can ask the moderators who did each track =)
Release the Kraken is Zanelli :)
Why, thank you sir. Anything else you know?
You Can Hide From Perseus - Noah Sorota Bring Everything But the Owl - Dom Lewis Scorpiox - Noah Sorota Djinn - Bobby Tahouri Redemption Through Blood - Noah Sorota It's Expensive Where You're Going - Dom Lewis Eyes Down - Dom Lewis The Stygian Witches - Geoff Zanelli
Thanks Bondo. The Stygian witches isn't on here, did you find that from the ASCAP or something?
It was on Geoff Zanelli's website back then... Now the site is down... :S
I'm almost certain that the choral theme for Io that appears in "The Best of Both" and towards the end of "It's Almost Human of You" is Craig Armstrong's contribution.
One should listen the end credits completely too, at the end is ''Io's Theme'', composed by Armstrong. It's nice to see that the directer indeed appreciated Craaig's contributions.
Thanks for the tip SB, gonna check the tracks out!
No it's not. There's nothing Armstrong in this release...
But the last part of the End Credits is an Armonstrong theme (and not bad !) !
Well, regardless of what people say. There is a god in you is awesome! Also, when you guys refer to the last part of the end credits, supposedly Armstrong's, is it that vocal motif that is also featured in the track Perseus? I really love that theme, I think it is the best of the album, shame it's so short :(
Once again, there's not any single second of Armstrong's work in this CD...
well I wouldn't expect there to be any of Armstrong's work on the disk (and the official score credits only list his only surviving contribution as being in the end credits), but the film itself *does* credit him for composing "Io's Theme," and the music that plays whenever it shows Io is that choral piece... Plus it just sounds very similar to some of Craig Armstrong's music. I think he was fired before he was able to actually record any of what he wrote, so maybe it's possible that it's just a Djawadi arrangement of his theme?
SB, that's not very likely if you compare styles. Io features not much synths, but a lot of violins and horns/flutes (whatever they are called). If you know some Armstrong scores, you'll hear it's his entirely and no Djawadi arrangement or something.
the problem is simply because this site comment section is like Fu... Youtube , this is not a forum with edit functions or moderators so anybody can post craps comments like "this score sucks" without explanation or "OMG luv u hans zimmer" , "you're the best" , "Ramind Dajwadi is a hack" , "worst score ever" or sh... like that.
No one seems to understand that director Louis Leterier wanted this music, because Craig Armstrong was fired. So don't fire off Ramin, then do Louis. But it's his film, they are in the business for a reason, everyone here is not, and I think that's for a perfectly good reason too.
Now we got a Clash here too, and Zeus has just entered the ring... :-)
no hard fealings , i like the socre of clash of the titans. But there is no reason to write comments like that to Ryan. We are all here to talk and discuss soundtrack in a good way. i dont like when people attack each other for having a diffrent opinion. film score is something beautiful and fantastic so its sad that people are gonna fight against each other over a score.
sorry for my bad english but i hope you understand what i mean. and as i said no hard fealings.
We just thought that people could be reasonable enough to write constructives things... We're not on youtube where everybody from all worlds come and post. We're on a very specific website with people liking Film music, a pre-selection has been made ; they don't come and post here accidentally... But not, witness this last stupid comment "Remote Control has other and better composers" ; you don't know how to express kindly your opinion, a sad finding...
This comment section will be closed tonight, only for Clash Of The Titans, some IP will be banned, and i will have a look more often on those sections as you people can't control yourself... Maybe the return to censorship with some posts erased... Too bad...
Just 1 question ; If you had Ramin Djawadi (and consider writing in this section is almost the same) in front of you, would you use terms like "crap", "shit" or "luckily, there are better composers than you in RCProds" ? I don't think so, then i put that behaviour on stupidity & cowardice to be hide behind your anonymity. It's poor, it's human, what could ask more from you ? And i really do hope you're so demanding in your own job than you're demanding to others in so nice words...
And I really thank to 80% others that post constructives comments to make this section live in harmony. It's hard to be just a responsible person today...

The latest stupid post by Enrico is a good example...
That's precisely the main reason I close this topic.
ps: there are moderators [Nicolas & myself] and be sure we have lot's of work !
All critics are welcome on this website, but you could choose words or arguments more nices and constructives. What's more, names of the mixer are written in the credits above, then start and buy glasses for yourself...
I can see your frustration, it's been reported on some Soundtrack websites. I don't know whether you will read this, but here you go anyway. If not the others here can read this too.
All of the composers' most unique instrumental elements are drowned out by the orchestra's mix. The "Medusa" cue is the most blatant example of an instance where someone absolutely butchers the mix of a score to render its solo performances moot. How can an organization like Remote Control have so many recording and engineering gurus and manage to provide a score so incompetently mixed and/or mastered for album?
I begin beeing upset by comment on this soundtrack ! You have perfectly the right no to like it, but i can't understand guys who think that their stupid comments can bring something constructive to their opinion. Just be adult, try to think there's a job behind this music, a composer, a team who worked a lot of days/month, and try to have a respectful opinion considering that. I just don't want my website to become a playground for people who don't know how to be noticed by others. So if you wan't to leave, please do, we will be on holiday... And others (like Lasse) who can't understand that elementary opinion, just go away too. I'm fed up with all the stupid things i read on this "Clash Of The Titans" page... Respect, do i ask too much ???
