man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.
Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scoresThis score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)
I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Donít even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.
I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04. Into The Jungle (01:23)<br>05. Out of Character (02:31)<br>06. The Legend of the Jewel (02:23)<br>07. The Adventure Begins (01:40)<br>08. Special Abilities (01:16)<br>09. The Bikers (03:44)<br>10. Van Pelt (01:00)<br>11. A Test Of Friendship (01:22)<br>12.

Flirting With Danger (01:36)<br>19. Albino Rhinos (03:44)<br>20. Retrieving the Emerald (01:54)<br>21. Out of Lives (01:49)<br>22. First Kiss (01:22)<br>23. The Jaguars (03:03)<br>24. Ring of Fire (02:07)<br>25. Begin The Climb (01:56)<br>26. Call Out Its Name (02:23)<br>27. leaving Jumanji (03:03)<br>28. An Older Friend (02:40)<br>29. Back To School (01:53)@ds the same for desplat's victory with Budapest Hotel.Maybe. I'd sure be happy for you lot ;) And I'd definitely rather see Powell attached to a project than, say, RGW, Junkie or Desplat. <br><br>That Solo movie is going to be a disaster, though.One more thing: if indeed the reason for Powell's semi-hiatus was to be with his family as much as possible, we may well see his activity increase again in coming years now that his wife has passed away and his son is close to graduating high school (I couldn't find an exact date of birth for him but I think he's 16 or 17). Him taking on a project as big and ambitious as Star Wars isn't exactly the sign of someone who wants to take it easy. It's too early to say yet though.

Edmund Meinerts2014-04-26 15:20:45
I just found this one too. Looking forward to hearing it; the original album, missing the entire final battle sequence, was completely inadequate. I'd say it's still Balfe's best score (if you can call it a Balfe score).


T-Mann0362014-04-27 06:36:44
The recording sessions was spot on. Hans & Lorne had done a great job on making the film soundtrack... especially those not found in the original soundtrack.

Ds reply Replies: 1 || 2013-05-20 14:11:08
The music as heard in the movie sounds so much better than this release... Still, very cool work from Hans & Lorne, they did exactly the kind of music the film needed.

And the scene with "I'm the bad guy" really has an epic feel.

Actually he did 2 source cues. Not exactly working with the others on this one... :P

Giant Blue Head and Tightenville show up on Lorne's website, does that mean that he composed them?


Mr. Fate2012-06-02 03:26:15
yes


Ds2012-06-02 12:53:33
Mr Fate, how do you know that?

I'd say, Lorne Balfe is co-composer (and not additional composer), what means that all the cues could be on his website... no?


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-02 13:38:24
Absolutely...

Actually it's a co-score, Lorne & Hans wrote the themes TOGETHER.

Like one starts it, the other finishes it.


Mr. Fate2012-06-02 14:00:52
Thanks, Hybrid. I saw this a little bit ago just before you posted and had been thinking about my own input on the matter.

Ds, even if Balfe is a co-composer, that means he is *still* a composer of the score. It wouldn't make much sense if he posted samples of Zimmer's work on his own website now, would it? Composers like Balfe, Geoff Zanelli, and Magic Box Music post samples of their own works on their websites so that they can get their names and styles out there and recognized.

It is from this assumption that we could go ahead and conclude that Lorne Balfe is the composer of "Giant Blue Head" and "Tightenville".


Anonymous2012-06-02 17:59:23
It sounds to me like Giant Blue Head and Tightenville are perfect blends of the composers' abilities. The other theme for Megamind heard mainly in Black Mamba sounds totally like Zimmer, as does the love theme.


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-02 18:45:27
Speaking of Lorne, if you want some news, he's just completing the next Assassin's Creed & Spyro as we speak. He finished a UK feature, The Sweeney, which should have a score release.


Schmo2012-06-02 22:50:33
Hi Hybrid Soldier

Is Lorne doing Assassin's Creed 3 by himself or is Jesper Kyd returning as well?

I ask because months before Ubisoft announced Jesper Kyd was returning for Assassin's Creed Revelations he had it listed on his site and on his agency site (The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency)that he was composing for the game but I can't find any news on Jesper returning for Assassin's Creed 3.

I thought Lorne's music for Revelations was better than Jesper's so I'm hoping Lorne is doing the full score himself.

Thank you


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-04 17:51:28
Err... No idea !

I'll ask Lorne ! :)

Am I clear in understanding that there is no track for the DVD title screen music they used or that little snippit in the beginning of the movie which was the same track? Because I have gone through the entire soundtrack and have not heard it ONCE. There was a tease of it in Giant Blue Head, but that wasn't the actual piece. You're driving me nuts, Zimmer, for not putting that in the soundtrack!!! Please, if anyone can help me find it or tell me where I can get it, it would be much appreciated.

I don't know, but I totally agree.

Snake reply Replies: 12 || 2010-12-19 00:00:00
I think Lorne Balfe is doing a better job than Zimmer these days. Zimmer has been more involved in not so good projects including this one Megamind. His best works were done until 2003. However, Zimmer was involved in some projects that were awesome like The Dark Knight or Kung Fu Panda (special Zimmer's themes) (John Powell sucks). Also Balfe did good compositions, but that doesn't mean he's the next Zimmer. NO!!! He will never be the next Hans Zimmer. He''ll need a whole lifetime to do that but even with that, he'll never surpass Zimmer's earlier works. Should I tell them? No. Because everybody knows his works and he's the God of film music even with his few fails. But don't think I'm saying I hate his works. No; I think he's got talent and definitely has more talent than Henry Jackman, Ramin Djawadi (even his work in Medal of Honor) and the worst film composer of all times and Remote Control's history; Steve Jablonsky (special him and his totally horrible film compositions, and more with Michael Bay) together. That reminds me the time when Hans Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams worked together for a long time as Gregson-Williams as his apprentice. But that's my opinion so don't get angry if I offended you.

If Zimmer let Balfe to compose more music for upcoming films, then Balfe will gain respect in Hollywood and would work with renowed film producers and directors like Zimmer's former "padawans" such as Harry Gregson-Williams, Marc Streitenfeld, Trevor Rabin and Klaus Badelt. Besides, I loved what Balfe and Zimmer did on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 together.


Edmund Meinerts2011-06-07 16:10:32
John Powell sucks??? You're kidding, right? Powell is by far the best padawan (your word!) to emerge from Remote Control, to the point that I think he's doing better stuff than Zimmer himself these days.

Go listen to How to Train Your Dragon. Then cry because you were such an idiot ever to type the forbidden words "John Powell sucks", come back and apologize.

Also, listen to Steamboy - it'll make you think twice about your opinion of Jablonsky. ;)


Samantha2011-06-07 20:34:27
Amen Edmund Meinerts!!!


Lucinda2011-06-07 20:39:10
Wait... did Snake just wrote "John Powell sucks"??!!! Really???!!!

Oh my God dude... you shouldn't be alive!! You should be in the mental institute for writing those words.

John Powell is a fantastic composer - one of the best - and I'm really angry with the Academy for not giving him the Oscar for HTTYD (which is, btw, one of the best scores in the world).

Hans Zimmer is good and I love him but I have to be honest - his padawans (using your word as Edmund did) are becoming greater than him.

Sorry dude but you are just lame!!!


Peter2011-06-07 22:49:08
His Padawans?

I'll admit Jablonsky and Ramin Djawadi of late have been Getting better in their mimicry of Zimmer's styles. Even Henry Jackman did a good job with Xmen...

but I have to agree with the guy who negates Powell...

I'll extend that to even say Gregson-Williams sucks as well.

Both have been getting lazy. Either that or the projects they've been taking on havent really been the kind of projects
that give them much room to work, and much less shine in.


Gregson Williams watermark seems to have been after he did Man on Fire. Ever since then he's been riffing on himself.

Powell's looks to have been the Bourne Series. Much of his work after that, probably save Hancock, has been hyperkietic childrens' movie fare, which is kinda meh IMO. And yes I include Kung Fu Panda.

Im all for Zimmer's padawans picking up the torch, but both Powell and GW have been dropping their balls lately and letting THEIR padwans outshine them...


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-07 23:14:59
@ Peter

Powell and Gregson-Williams on a bad day still write better music than all those padawans with exotic names I don't even care to remember. They don't even deserve to be called padawan, minion is probably a better name.

Hell, on a bad day Gregson-Williams and Powell write even better music than Zimmer himself. Then again, Zimmer probably hasn't written a note of music in years, he's got his minions for that.

Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-08 13:11:04
@ Hybrid

Am I really? Sure, I exaggerated by saying Zimmer hasn't written a note of music in years. But he also hasn't written a full score without relying on his minions in years. It almost seems that list of additional composers is getting longer and longer with each score. Also none of his recent scores are as good as the stuff he wrote in the 90's.

And you can't seriously think that Ramin Djawadajajaji and Atali Orvarizon write better music than Powell and Gregson-Williams?!


Hybrid Soldier2011-06-08 13:29:56
Because Powell & Gregson write their scores alone ?

Are you kidding ? What about Dom Lewis, Paul Mounsey, McKee Smith, Ashton Thomas with Powell ? Cauthery, Hybrid, Anthony Lledo, Daveid Buckley, even Matthew Margeson with HGW ?

And yeah, I can affirm in the past few years Atli did much better than HGW (who is kind of lost since 2005)... Eagle, Season, Free Realms (which of course you haven't heard, I can't blame you), Babylon AD HGW hasn't matched stuff like that since a veeeeeeeeeeery long time, unfortunately... :S


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-08 13:52:25
Well no, but I don't get the idea that they rely on the additional composers as much as Zimmer does.

HG-W last couple of scores weren't very impressive (although I loved Prince Caspian and Prince of Persia), but I think that also had something to do with the films them self. Here's hoping he'll deliver on Cowboys and Aliens.

As for ÷rvarsson, I didn't really care much for Season but I did like The Fourth Kind. And The Eagle was also pretty good. Never heard of Free Realms. I'll see if I can find that one somewhere.

Sometimes you're right Snake, but you should also respect each composer Ramin Djawadi is one of my favorites! Steve was a good composer with Steamboy, transformers 1, and then a second part of this terrible and stupid with ACDC!

Can't wait!

Oh, man I hope Rango gets a release. I wanna see that so bad, it looks really good. Just watching the trailer makes me feel like it will have a good score.

cool thanks hybrid

There won't be a release for The Dilemma either...

Lorne told me it's a really short score (a bit less than 40 min total) with tons of short cues... So no good listening experience...

So, no, no CD planned... :S

so I'm guessing we won't hear the dilemma either?

Hybrid have you any info on the project at all?

This was made expecially by Balfe....right?!

Enrico: I`m guessing that theme suites and some tracks (Stars and Tights, ...) are by Hans Zimmer and rest is by Lorne Balfe (so it was co-composed by both of them).

This is a fun score, nothing outstanding but nice to listen to nevertheless... but I think the CD ends far too abruptly ! It lacks some kind of conclusion, the end of "Evil Lair" leaves me waiting for what's coming next... except that there is nothing next ! A conclusion track would have been good, it would have given some closure to the album... too bad !
