Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.
You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.
Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...

yes it's true. by the way, what can you say for this Hybrid. Completely fake as you say for everything who win to post tracklist like this before you do it?


Mr. Fate2011-10-24 04:09:58
^^^The guy above me seems to be problematic and a non-believer.

Take care of him, please.

Of course, we could never know if it is continually the same guy who refuses to believe that Hybrid Soldier really does have anything: he's Anonymous. Yeah, good job genius.


Karambaru2011-10-24 14:32:58
I don't know for Hybrid, but for me at least this one's not a fake. But that's very old news, definitively. :)


Hybrid2011-10-24 20:16:39
don't be stupid. anyone can take my name and clai to be the 'real hybird'. just like now. stop acting pathetic and grovelling over someone who may not even exist. I claim to have the music, yet I do not share??? odd, eh?

Ready To Fight and Testify is fine, rest is boring. Also Kuala Lumpur is Green Zone copy-paste.

To be fair, I think the director wasn't seeking a bombastic score, let alone a melody driven orchestra. The story is sorta bleak, with all odds against one individual. I think the electronics resemble the highly evolved state of the CIA along with all the red tape that comes within this very story. It's simple, but at the same time very complex.

I think overall, it's music that was more or less used just to keep up with the story, the characters, and that's about it. It isn't like John's prievous scores where his music carries the soul of movies. This score was to carry the enviroment of the film - nothing more nothing less. And to be quite frank, it does the job. I certainly enjoy most of the music on here. Specifically "The White House" "Ready to Fight" "Uncomfortable Love" and "Testify"

The only interesting track on this album is "Testify" , the rest is pure crap ambiant and drone s...
looks like Powell wasn't interested at all

+1 ... I don't know what is wrong with Powell's magic here. It's disappointing!

@ mis and dawn. Hans zimmer likes composer to get a foothold in the business cause that the hardest thing to do, you always learn from each other and get inspiration from each other thats how the world works.

Mis reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-12 00:00:00
Ok, ok you're right ! I don't deny this ! :D

Dawn reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-12 00:00:00
@Mis

Zimmer, along with Jay Rifkin, created a music company called Media Ventures, later renamed "Remote Control". Powell was hired in this company for a while... working on projects where Zimmer was the main composer / producer.
Now Powell has his own trademark and is more a master than a student, but he definitely began his hollywood carrier thanks to Zimmer, being some kind of a member of Zimmer's team. You cannot deny it ! :D

I don't know, they were only partners, not "teacher and student". Maybe it's more correct if I say that they are both student, and they can learn about each other ! Is is better ? :)

Mis, what about El Dorado, what about Antz, what about Chill Factor, Prince of Egypt, Endurance, The Thin Red Line, or Kung Fu Panda ? :P

"...ex-team members of Hans Zimmer" Powell as a ex-team member of Hans Zimmer.... I don't know, but I consider Powell as a separate composer. Zimmer and he had a job (Face off) but then they split up. That's all :) He learnt everything by ownself I think.

Dawn reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-09 00:00:00
I have a problem with this movie being called Fair Game, like the mid-90's actioner with Cindy Crawford, both films being scored by ex-team members of Hans Zimmer ! :)

You can hear the samples at amazon.
this is the link:
http://www.amazon.com/Fair-Game/dp/B0045X1GLK/ref=tmm_other_ title_0

another action-electronic music from john powell that sounds like doug liman' previous film score and recent greengrass' greenzone score. it sounds good, but i love powell scoring in animation world better.
(i want to be a composer in the future, and john powell is my main inspiration, so i love all john powell score)
