Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :P
Thanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the scoreTom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.
Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.
Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.

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.

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. :)

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-19 00:00:00
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.

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

PSP version is by 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)!
