I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*
OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comThat's the 'Album Version' of Time To Suit UpI'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up. <br><br>It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?
Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?
Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :pI hope there will be an album for Angel Has Fallen by 	David Buckley.PM me on YouTube for further questions.

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

Thanks for the info Hybrid Soldier! :)

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.

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

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)!
