It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinionSo it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.
Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.I think Lorne teased this some time ago by sending a picture of researching Russian music on insta (maybe)Hello, <br><br>I'm looking for the translation of the song God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi in English of French.<br><br>Could anyone help me ? <br><br>Thank you !

"Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns 'n Roses is featured, but I don't know much more than that. Somebody's going to have to check out its iMBD Soundtrack Listing if they want to find out without seeing the film.

wow I really like this one - the love theme is really good, and the cello setting of it in rejection in the rain is beautiful. Some great brassy action music throughout, funky comedy cues, and the end of evil lair is awesome. It's Hans back to his old colourful fun big orchestra style score for the first time in ages. It doesn't have memorable themes like madagscar and kung fu panda, but it's a very enjoyable listen.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-27 00:00:00
This just in: iTunes has released the soundtrack early! Anyone who wants to buy it or listen to samples can now do so. It seems that the MySpace track we thought was "Crab Nuggets" is actually "Giant Blue Head." Regardless, the score as a whole, based on the samples, certainly sounds interesting. The string work in particular is quite nice, especially on "Rejection in the Rain." I'm going to wait until I see the movie before making a choice, but my interest is definitely aroused.

@ Aldan

"British composer is always better than american composer( i'm not racist.i'm from indonesia)."

I don't think I really agree with that statement. Yes, there are plenty of great British composers (Powell, H-GW, David Arnold, Patrick Doyle, John Barry to name a few), but the two arguably greatest film composers are both American: Williams and Goldsmith.

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-26 00:00:00
Is up to pixar then. John Powell for Brave. I bet the result will be far better than HTTYD and not just for Brave, but to other Pixar movies in the future. British composer is always better than american composer( i'm not racist.i'm from indonesia).

no doubt for the quality of the score but the character design is UGLY (look at girl...)

Mark reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-26 00:00:00
I bet Powell will work for Pixar eventually. He already worked for Disney and provided a great score, so I don't imagine why they wouldn't want him back.

And specially after he wins the Oscar for HTTYD, he's gonna become a very hot composer!

Feliz Lombriz reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-25 00:00:00
Well, it'd be interesting for sure and maybe make a good album, but really I'm not sure how well Zimmer or HGW or the like would fit with Pixar onscreen. I'm not a big Newton fan, but the Toy Story scores melded into the movies perfectly, even if they didn't make incredible stand alone albums. Any other composer might've drawn too much attention to themselves.

And I DID get goosebumps from Giaccino's Up score, just as I did with HTTYD. I didn't think much of the soundtrack before seeing Up, but seeing the montage music, "Married Life," along with the film--that was wonderfully done. I don't think anyone else could've done it better.

I definitely agree with you about John Powell though! I would LOVE to see his efforts scoring something from Pixar. I feel like a project like that could push him to new heights. In the end though I don't pick the projects, I just get to sit back and watch. But we can dream, I suppose. :)

@miles
Shrek, Kung fu panda, HTTYD are exceptions. Well the rest , is purely bad. Chicken Run was an Aardman production. Dreamworks( still original DW) just the distributor.

@bou
I don't think Randy Newman was a great composer. His score in Toy story 3 was abstractly bad and also i don't get that ghostbump gigling feeling for Up's music as i felt for HTTYD's. Giacchino can stay at pixar, but the newmans must be retired and then, bring powell, zimmer, and harry williams in. Lasseter had worked with powell in bolt( as executive producer, i know ), why he don't want to work together with him again?.
If media venture guys work for pixar's movies, i will guarantee you that they're oscarcontender.( i never trust oscar's pick for best composer. Horton Hears a Who and KFP score were really oscar worthy at that time). The point is, Bring media venture guys to pixar( looking to you Zimmer, the root of the problem is you. You refused Stanton's invitation to work in FD and then for DWA for to not letting zimmer's guys to work with pixar)

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-20 00:00:00
I don't think Zimmer and Powell were wasted on Kung Fu Panda, or Powell and Gregson-Williams on Chicken Run.

Bou reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-18 00:00:00
"suck!!!
why media venture's composer always compose the music of DWA's movies? why they don't compose music for pixar movies?" : pehraps because Pixar works with some of the best composers like Michael Giacchino and Randy Newman and because it works very well (Oscar for Up score)

why media venture's composer always compose the music of DWA's movies? why they don't compose music for pixar movies?

their talent was wasted.( except for HTTYD).
anyway, do you think Powell is a perfect fit for pixar's celtic based movie, brave?

It all depends on taste in the end. I know for my personal taste that I never like Hans' soundtracks for romantic comedies or animated movies. They might work with the movie, but I don't enjoy to listen to them by themselves. I know it will be the case with this movie as well. But I understand that Hans wants diversity in his job and likes to do different genres, so I'm totally fine with it.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-07 00:00:00
I don't think I've heard enough to proffer good judgment yet, but the samples sound quite promising--"Crab Nuggets" and "Tightenville (Hal's Theme)" are effective comedic pieces, while "Stars and Tights" segues into a nice heroic motif, and "Mel-On-Cholly" has a good action tempo. Here's hoping the entire score lives up to expectations!

Samples on the soundtrack's Myspace:

http://www.myspace.com/megamindsoundtrack

The first two samples sound like pretty run-of-the-mill comedy stuff. But Stars and Tights and Mell-On-Cholly both sound promising. Ollo could be good too. I'll have to check this one out.
