I think 'Arthur' is more a combination of cues than a proper suite.<br>Not sure,  but I'd say the first part plays before 'Permission to come aboard', and the second part plays after 'The Ring of fire'.<br>'Reunited' is definitely the final cue.<br><br>And there's shitload of action music missing after 'The Black Manta' though :-pAnybody got an indea for chronological order?Why lisa gerrard wasnt in this concert???<br>Why lisa gerrard wasnt in this concert???<br>And just to clarify, “Atlantean Soldiers” is Orms’ theme right?
OK, now that I’ve had some time to sit on this I can say that I get the praise finally. The Vangelis inspiration works wonders for the score, and it actually is integrated incredibly well (as opposed to just being there for show).<br><br>Themewise, both the Arthur and Atlanna tunes are winners. Not sure why the album is so out of sequence though. I feel like the actual film presentation would give better thematic development.I think it's like this:<br><br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Swimming Lessons<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan<br>The Ring of Fire<br>What Does That Even Mean?<br>Map In A Bottle<br>The Black Manta<br>Trench Engaged<br>What Could Be Greater Than A King?<br>Reunited<br>Suited And Booted<br>Between The Land Amd Sea<br>He Commands The Sea<br>Reunited<br><br>Arthur is a suite I think<br>Everything from "He Commands the Sea" on is awesome. In many ways, this is a RCP superhero score. Not much depth, but contains some awesome highlights.Off the top of my head:<br><br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Swimming Lessons<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan<br>The Ring of Fire<br>What Does That Even Mean?<br>Map In A Bottle<br>The Black Manta<br>Trench Engaged<br>Reunited<br>What Could Be Greater Than A King?<br>He Commands The Sea<br>Suited And Booted<br><br>Not sure about Arthur, Between Land And Sea, and He Commands The Sea. I think Arthur may be a suite that includes his main theme, the Atlantis chase, and some action themes. I'd have to listen to the other two tracks again to be sure, but I think He Commands The Sea is near the end.anyone care to take a stab at the chronological trask listing?
Yes, both played in the film, and it's sort of a suite: It's split into two in the film, first part sounds close to the opening, the heavy synth part plays in really well when it's used, you'll hear it the moment it starts, no spoilers from me, but it's an awesome sequence.Does the cue "Arthur" play during the film or is it a theme suite?It's confirmed a CD release, but not confirm if is a CD-RIs the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retired
Makes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?

A question: If Christopher Ward and Don Harper are only credited as arranger and orchestrator, does that mean they didn't actually compose the cues they are credited on?


Dawn2012-02-04 14:49:14
That means they helped in some ways and at some point during the creation of those cues.

There is no way to know if they did 1% or 100% of the cues they worked on.

This is a great score - 5/5! Too bad the La-La Land release didn't feature some extra music/cues from the Speed 2 promo....
Despite that, it's a freaking awesome release for all the Mark Mancina (and action score) fans out there!! Grab it while it lasts!


Jason LeBlanc did a quick comparison to the composer promo, and this is what he came up with :
01 Main Title (1:51) = 01 Twentieth Century Fox Fanfare / Motorcycle Chase (0:00-1:47) (with clean ending)
02 Annie & Alex (2:16) = 02 Alex and Annie (0:00-2:12) (with clean ending)
03 Seabourn Legend (2:54) = NOT ON LA LA LAND (Similar to 14 Cruising (2:58))
04 Geiger (3:46) = 03 Engine Room (0:00-3:20) then the tick tock percussion isolated on the composer promo plays under the next cue on the LLL
05 Eindhoven Lion (0:35) = NOT ON LA LA LAND
06 Close The Hatch (1:31) = 06 Goodbye Alex (2:38-4:06) (with clean opening)
07 Lifeboat (1:54) = 07 Reunion (0:00-1:50) (with clean ending)
08 Bow Thrusters (2:21) = 08 Tanker Turn (0:00-2:18) (with clean ending)
09 Grenade (0:54) = NOT ON LA LA LAND
10 Evacuation (6:59) = 05 Last Lifeboat (7:01)
11 Why Don't We Stop (0:48) = 12 Final Chase (0:00-0:42) (with clean ending)
12 Crashing Into The Island (6:42) = 12 Final Chase (0:42-7:23) (with clean opening)
13 Golfclubs (1:43) = 13 Underwater Rescue (1:46)
14 Caribbean (0:53) = NOT ON LA LA LAND
15 Tuneman (3:53) = NOT ON LA LA LAND
16 That's Odd (1:18) = 04 Overboard (0:00-1:14) (with clean ending)

I know only 2 cues credited John Van Tongeren (from his own website) :
"Auto-Pilot" which is heard in the last minute of "Engine Room", and "Man Overboard" which is the first minute of "Overboard".
But as "additional music credits" always is quiet tricky, I'm not sure these cues were fully arranged by JVT...

Btw, from what I read in the Speed 2 liner note, I think the promo cues "Seabourne Legend" and "We Not Gonna Stop" are some kind of themes suites (cues not meant to synchronize to pictures but developping primary ideas from the score) that the music editor incorporated several small bits into the movie.

Is any of Van Tongeren's music contained in this release?

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-17 00:00:00
Mr Tweedy, I dont have this score nor have I seen the film. What tracks are different to the film music?

@Iceboy
Here we go :

"Caribbean Cruise" is different from the film version. You can find the film version on Speed 2 promo ("Welcome to the Seabourne Legend"). IMO, film/promo version is WAY better than Lala version !

"Engine Room" is a mix of two cues used in the movie, but the sound editor decided to butcher both those tracks in the movie.

There's a cue missing after "Engine Room", featured on the promo (sometimes called "We Not Gonna Stop" or "Evacuation"). But in the movie they butchered it, and you only hear a few seconds of it.

There's a cue missing after "Goodbye, Alex" (when Annie opens a door with a chainsaw). You can hear similar music during the middle of "Escape". Not featured on the promo.

There's a cue missing after "Tanker Turn", featured on the promo, but I don't find its name. It was called "Grenade" I think, but was used when Geiger is about to leave the ship.

Another cue missing, after "Escape", featured on the promo : "A Peaceful Village" or "Caribbean", depending on which version you got. In fact, this "Caribbean" cue replaces a few seconds of "The Harbor" in the movie (just before the action section begins).

The end of the film doesn't contain any unreleased material. They edited "Alex and Annie" and "Welcome to the Seabourne Legend" so the music matches the pictures. But these are not "unreleased cues".

"Cruising" has its beginning used earlier in the movie, but all the saxophone part was rejected. You hear something like 40 seconds of it.

Sometimes I wonder if La-La's doing it on purpose...

Generally they misspell Names, like "Pouchet" instead of "Fouchet" in Bad Boys, "Gieger" instead of "Geiger" here...

Legal issues ? :P

My bad, it really has errors on back cover.

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-08 00:00:00
What do you mean; "Carribean" with two Rs is written on the back cover. How is that not a spelling error? ;) Unless of course they corrected it on a newer batch.

Boss reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-08 00:00:00
There are no spelling errors on CD's tracks, only in this website.

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-25 00:00:00
Wow, there's two spelling errors on the back of the case - "Carribean" instead of "Caribbean" and "Gieger" instead of "Geiger"... how the hell does that happen, is there no one to check the spelling before they friggin' print it 3000 times? Otherwise flawless album presentation by La-La Land though...

Probably the best from Mark. Rythmic, thematic and lyric at the same time with this touch of Zimmer 's sound sometimes.. awesome!
