Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.
LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!
So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!

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"

@ 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)
