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.

Ramin left the team of "The dark knight" to make the OST of "Iron Man"?

Whoa, Hans Zimmer did more than I thought. Cool! It's interesting how a lot of RCP scores are collaborative efforts.

Though HZ confirmed to me working on things like Armageddon or Transformers 2, he's never really admitted "working" on that one.

He's on the cue sheet but told me he "helped Ramin find his way" (meaning in this big mess).

So he probably never really sat down and took the keyboard to write anything, but was probably behind the guys giving ideas & where to go. ;)


Mike2012-12-08 09:13:22
I see. I really liked this score, though. They should've kept Ramin on for #2. The score to 2 was forgettable, in my opinion.


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-08 12:12:23
Personally I liked 2 a lot more than 1. There was a stronger balance between orchestral and electronic with Debney, and the Russian theme for Whiplash was just badass!

Granted I haven't heard this complete Iron Man 1, but from the OST I always thought it was a bit of a mess. Really simplistic and hardly any themes beyond DUN-DUN-DUN-DUN...DUN-DUN-DUN-DUN...DUN-DUN - which got old really fast. Djawadi definitely improved after this one.


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-08 12:26:39
Apart from the opening, there's nothing in Debney's score. Empty score for an empty film.

The first one is better in every way, and Iron Man had a THEME !


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-08 13:14:18
Debney did write a theme for Iron Man 2 ("I Am Iron Man", and it sounds a bit like Jerry Goldsmith's Total Recall), but for whatever reason it's hardly used in the rest of the score. Apparently that's not his fault, though, because the producers forced him not to use it (kind of the way the producers forced him not to write the first score at all...it's like they've got it out for him or something). Djawadi's theme (are you referring to the one heard in "Vacation's Over"?) is OK, but it's not much, and sounds a lot like TMNT by Klaus Badelt...

And what exactly do you mean by an "empty" score?


Anonymous2012-12-08 14:47:55
To @Hybridyou say Debney´s Score for Iron Man 2 is empty. So, this question here is: What Tha Fuck are you talking about? What the hell did you hear? I´m not saying Djawadi did bad job. Djawadi's Iron Man has good themes, but Debney's Iron Man 2 extend the sound Djawadi did in the first Iron Man. And has a better balance between Orchestral and Electronic and add Chorus.


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-08 14:58:52
I'm based on the (not really good) film, not the OST. Never heard it, never will. I've seen the film a couple of time, and I keep to my point.


Mike2012-12-09 03:02:51
I've actually not listened to either of the Iron Man scores by themselves, just with the movies. And judging from that I can say that I liked the score to #1 more.

The soundtrack sounds a hell of a lot better then the quality of the film tracks... you can tell more production went into the production of the soundtrack. Wish this had that quality....

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-31 00:00:00
In this version, you can hear all the nuances drowned out by sound sx in the theater. My particular favorite is "Dog Fight" by Atli Örvarsson; you'd never notice the variety of sounds in the theater or on DVD.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-31 00:00:00
Well, Bondo, you can explain that cause a part of the track is just cut in the film...


The last part of the cue is mainly... silence in the movie... :O


Same for Rescue or Monger Attacks... :S

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-31 00:00:00
I meants Escape, not Rescue, which is a great Bobby Tahouri arrangement... :P

Well that's unfortunate! Guess I'll have to re-watch the film now and sync up all the unused cues... =D

So, is this score so good, that it deserves 10/10?

Hale reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-29 00:00:00
For me, that score values 7/10.
10/10 is just a proof of excitation to discover a complete score. :D

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-29 00:00:00
It's certainly better in chronological order as inteded! I overlooked this score when it first came out, but it gets better with repeated listens. The themes are more obvious in the new presentation; it's also interesting to hear who composed what

Belle présentation avec celui qui a fait quoi.
Objectivement, il ne vaut tout de même pas la note suprême :
---Peu de thèmes(et très peu accrocheurs), forte répétitivité, manque d'originalité.
Néanmoins,
