The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe “leaked” his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

okay, so who composed what? (specific tracks)

Richard reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-01 00:00:00
I think "Chain of Command" is also the stealth-broken music for the airbase level.

I Very like the estate themes "weit" & "escape". This is my favorite motive from the game.

God bless!

@RuthlessGravity: I think so yes, because when you start a mulityplayer game, then a short track with music starts. I think there are three or four. But the beginning of "Chain Of Command" is extended version of one of these tracks. I think that sounds better than "REMIX" ;-)

@ Jeff R
Got mine from Amazon.com

@ Kusi81

"Chain of Command" is a multiplayer-remix? Woah, that's awesome.

Jeff R reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-31 00:00:00
I do not see this on iTunes anywhere. Did they pull it off for some reason?

"Onwards" is played several times, but more prominently when your searching through the cell's, looking for Captain Price....

...and also when you're on the helicopter and on the flight to the gulag! :-) great cue!!!

Kusi81 reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-31 00:00:00
some corrections ;-)

"Guerrilla Tactics" -> I think that's a track from the escape mission from favela, after the roja chase

"Infiltration" -> DC-Mission, where you've to defend the house and shot some helicopters ;-)

"Ordinance" -> Airport-Mission? Also not sure about that

"Chain Of Command" -> Multiplayer-Remix Arrangement - a part of this track comes at the start of a multiplayer game.

"Retreat And Reveille" -> in the last mission where you walk through the caves of afganistan.

... The others are I think right, but I'm also not sure! :-)

"Extraction Point" is on the last level of the Rangers. Fighting your way through the White House, before finally popping green flares.

"Breach" is I remember correctly is the Prisoner 627 level, fighting through the castle.

"Guerrilla Tactics" is played when your chasing Rojas.

"Seige" is played when your walking out to the battlefield of Washington D.C.

"Infiltration" I think is played when your on the oil rig.

"Espirit De Corps" is played during the infiltration of the snow outpost, when you're first introduced to Roach.

"Retreat And Reveille" is I remember this correctly, is played when your leaving Makarov's safehouse.

"Ordinance" is played when your trying to pull the knife out from Roach's gut.

"Contingency" is played on Contingency level, short version though.

"Onwards" is played several times, but more prominently when your searching through the cell's, looking for Captain Price.

"Code of Conduct" is played on The Enemy of My Enemy, in the airplane graveyard.

"Chain of Command" is probably the most re-arranged piece to me. Not too sure.

"Safeguard" is a re-arranged piece of the snowmobile chase.

"Deadline" is played when your about to infiltrate the Oil Rig's, opens up in the submarines.

"Protocol" is played as a chase music on the zodiac's.

"Coup De Grace" is played when Roach and Ghost are about to burned by Shepard's private military, at the end of Loose Ends

Not 100% sure, but there ya have it.

According to Nick Phoenix he did the Oil Rig and Afghan Caves. I'm not too surprised -- I always thought "Deadline" sounded very Nick Phoenix-esque.

I don't know if anybody noticed, but if you search "Modern Warfare" in iTS, you can find the Score for MW2.
Just a heads up. Sorry if you already noticed this.

Yes indeed on iTunes it's listed to be released on June the 1st but... it's already available...


It's quite expensive on the French store (11'99€ O_O !!), but who cares ? :P


Gonna buy it later today !!

And I already know which tracks I'm gonna add to the Webradio ! Opening Titles, Code Of Conduct... And maybe more, we'll see... :P

It has good quality, and few nice new arrangements, but misses a lot of great cues.
I'll stick with the 3 hours version, but this is a good album too!

I just don't get it. Why mp3? Why can't Amazon or iTunes be selling lossless audio files? FLAC, APE, whatever. No way I'm ever paying for lossy formats, that's like selling e-books with every 5th word taken out of the text ;)
