Most of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Thanks MIKE, Any ideas of how can I Google it?Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.
I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.
Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.
Does anyone know where you can get a digital version of the Japanese versions 2 bonus tracks?Comparing it to YFM’s sfx edit this is what I’ve got;<br><br>“The Mole” seems to be an alternate of the opening sequence. The first minute or so is used, while the rest isn’t. “We Need Our Army Back/Regimental Brothers” are both made up of several cues from different points in the film. <br>“Home” is completely different in the film, which makes me think it may have been recorded specifically for the album. Similar situation with “Oil”. <br>“Supermarine” is definitely a suite. The rest is chronological.<br><br>Interesting thing to note, it seems like a lot of the tempo changes/ticking effects/bass overlays were removed from the album release, making almost every track sound different from the actual film versions. The music in context has a constant pulse going, especially in the way cues segue into each other and change tempo.It's not really possible to chronologically order the album because the album doesn't use the same tracks as the movie. Plus, the album is more or less chronological anyway, given the areas where they are the same.<br>With the complete cue sheet out now.

Does anyone know which platform this version of the Soundtrack is for? Because I know there is one out there by Tom Salta, and it may be the Wii version. I've even seen a different tracklist but it lists Jablonsky as the composer.


Tim2011-06-06 12:05:27
this particular soundtrack is written for the PC/PS3/Xbox360 version! Tom Salta scored the Wii Version, in fact.


Dakota2011-06-06 18:51:15
That's what I thought. Thanks Tim

Unlike *almost* every other soundtrack here at RCP I see no additional composers. Did Steve do this all by himself? And is it any good? I kinda want to download it right now....

Feliz Lombriz reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-19 00:00:00
The Main Theme is very good. The rest is okay too, but not too memorable. At least, I don't remember it. :)

Alright then, I think I'm gonna download it. I love Steve

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-19 00:00:00
Dakota, the main theme is trully spectacular (Steve's Transformer/God Of War/Island/RCP anthem). Rest is pretty standard RCP action mixed with ethnical elements. Basically, something like Transformers in Persia. I especially love the percusion. Some RCP action lovers claim this score to be better than HGW's PoP. In my opinion, HGW's is better than this. Still, you can listen to this somewhere, before you gonna download it. There are also some Clash refferences.

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-19 00:00:00
Also, yeah, the majority of the score is written by Steve, but as you can see, some tracks are written by Penka Kouneva. And I can tell you, that maaaaybbeee Lorne had influence on it. Although probably Lorne wasn't here.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-19 00:00:00
OMG I sampled the main theme on iTunes and I already love it. This sounds like a good one.

Amazing Main Theme?

Haven't you guys hear The Rock, Transformers, or any other RC/MV style main theme lately? This is just a rehash of what's been done to death already and to say it's better the Harry's score?!?! Have you all gone mad?

Amazing main theme. Well done. Better than the movie soundtrack's main theme by Harry Gregson-Williams.

@ wallgate,

I disagree, Jablonsky (and Kouneva) did a great job. Haven't you heard the main theme? I find this score even better than Harry's! They should've used this one in the film too :P

wallgate reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-08 00:00:00
One thing I'm sure - they should've let Salta do this.

Damn this Jablonsky... Steamboy was great, Transformers was a great guilty pleasure and D-Wars was pretty good, but man... The man can't write a score nowadays without it being a complete rip-off of any other MV scores and with absolutely no originality. But hey, since I like the MV sound it's not all that bad, so the main theme is another one of those guilty pleasures but the rest of the album is completely forgettable.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-25 00:00:00
Yes it's Jablonsky / Kouneva...

They wrote the PS3/Next gen version...

Salta wrote the Wii version...

Are you sure that's the work of Steve Jablonsky? For me it's Tom Salta

It's great that the game also is getting a release!

To be honest, I prefer this music over Harry's!!

So good job Steve (and Penka)!
