Yes it was announced a while back, Harry returns !I can confirm that he is working on it.I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.
Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.
Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.@superultramega It’s funny you should say that about Rogue One because, even though I do like the themes, I will agree that it definitely is weaker than any Star Wars score and seems to lack the life Giacchino normally puts into his music.<br><br>Even weirder, his music for Jupiter Ascending (another big space opera) is far more aggressive and developed, and probably one of his best. It makes me wonder if the Star Wars team wanted the safe route....Ok, not restraint on drums, but I still don't really see how exactly his music for animated films comes even close to being an RC product. When I think of RC I think of the music for the Pirates movies, the early Bay and Bruckheimer films, etc. The work on Shrek, Antz, Ice Age, and How to Train Your Dragon is much closer to a traditional Williams score than any RC product. <br><br>Plus he's working on Star Wars so he's obviously going to try his damnedest to stick to that kind of music, and to avoid the Zimmer style. I just don't understand why you think Powell, of all people is going to be the one to dilute the Star Wars sound. <br><br>Hell, I think Giacchino's score for Rogue One was pretty much nothing more than an unmemorable, and bland version of Star Wars with very little going on besides broken down notes of the Star Wars theme playing and generic Williams copy. Just like Jurassic World. I don't know how Giacchino makes Williams' style bland but he finds a way. At least with Powell we'll get more style and memorability on top of a Williams imitation.Restraint on drums? <br><br>Have you listened to Green Zone? The Bourne movies? Hancock?<br><br>Cmon...Yeah he's not Zimmer, but this isn't a Williams product we are talking about. It's an RC product. This is what I am talking about.People like Harry Gregson, Jablonsky and Zanelli, despite their melodic tendinsies, would be people chosen for going the Zimmer route. I think Jablonsky's is the closest to Star Wars but even then there's a ton of power themes, and Zimmer hallmarks that keep him away from this sort of style. <br><br>Powell is the last person I would associate with Zimmer. His techniques are very much in vain with the Williams-like composers, like Alexandre Desplat and Michael Giacchino. The complex underscore, the rapid notes, the restraint on drums, instrument variety, the jazz techniques, etc. He's the perfect RCP composer for the job.
Of all RCP members, I think he is the one closest to Williams and Star Wars sound, so I think this score will be pure orchestral fun, like most of his scores usually are.<br><br>I cannot wait to listen to it!Well, I guess that is a matter of tastes and opinion, because for me scores like The Incredibles or Up, for saying some examples, are classics inside the animation field.<br><br>But is fine. We have our own preferences and that's okay.Me too! Very fun and « guilty pleasure » score<br>After listening to this one and Todo Mal, I think Andrew is a really versatile composer, both scores are really entertaining and yet have nothing to do with each otherI like this score, altough i think it will fly (get it) under the radar..<br>Hope Andrew continues making scores like thisIMO, though Powell was Hans'protegee 20 years ago, he always had his very own style. And this style evolved so much through these decades you can't really connect any more his mannerisms to those of people at RCP!

Wait, was there music in the film that wasn't in the soundtrack?

Yes.

So, the Facebook page of the film just posted the poster for the film's sequel.
Hoping Margeson returns.

I hope so too, the score for the first one is the best part of the movie... by far!

He's also doing the Score for Battle: Los Angeles, which this film is a rip-off of.

Curious, but Brian Tyler is a producer executive of this movie. Remember, Tyler made the score for Alien Vs. Predator Requiem which was also directed for The Strauss Brothers, the directors of Skyline

I adore the score, since I saw the movie and I actually liked it. If you're gonna see it, go with the expectations of having fun and see some great effects, not to see the next District 9, like a lotta people thought.
Margeson better have more work, and give additional music for Transformers 3, or maybe write the score with Steve Jablonsky. They could be awesome together.

"Final Battle" is definately my favorite. The last minute is just really epic sounding ;) I love it.

Felix D. reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-19 00:00:00
Of all the tracks, I'll put in my vote that "Damage Control" is the weakest and feels out of place with the rest of the score. Considering that it's the music for the end credits of the movie, that makes it easier to understand with its inclusion. I like the track, but of all the tracks, it's the one I could leave out and still feel very satisfied with the score...it just doesn't flow with the feel of the rest of the tracks. And, yes to Miles, that the score plays out as a "low-key" offering, compared to other film scores, but this is, I believe, intentional. I'll be watching for future scores by Margeson, as I believe that he's shown great promise with giving us more scores that will be just as exciting to listen to. I still love Skyline's score, overall, and it's definitely worth the money.

Chill, refer to one of my previous posts for how "They're Not Dead" fits into the score's chronological order.

Here I am, working at home on my normal Friday schedule, and I'm listening to it, again. Of course, I have to keep things fresh, so I'm alternating "Skyline" with listening to the score for "9" by Deborah Lurie and the ever-pleasing release of Star Trek: The Deluxe Edition by Giacchino.

Happy listening, fellow fans!

As far as I'm concerned, Damage Control is the weakest track on the album. Totally ruins the listening experience for me at the end.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-19 00:00:00
I'm probably unique here, because "Damage Control" isn't my favorite track. It's not unlistenable, but the rock element seems slightly gratuitous, and there's an abrasive edge to it that keeps me from giving full marks. On the other hand, tracks like "Ship Down", "Final Battle" and especially "Abduction" are very good indeed. All in all, a solid if slightly generic effort from Margeson. Here's hoping he gets the opportunity to be more versatile in the future!

The Song Abduction has a bit of a steve jablonsky touch to it but it good and Damage Control mostly the best track on it

Felix D. reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-17 00:00:00
I agree, Chill. Abduction is my favorite track of the score. That's one of the final cues, falling in this order,

"Final Battle"
"Abduction"
"Inside The Ship"
"Damage Control"

chill reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-17 00:00:00
if its not in order does that mean abduction could be the ending cue? I think its the most memorable piece, along with final battle...

Felix D. reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-17 00:00:00
Hi, Bondo. The score actually is not in chronological order, but what's nice about this film score's production is that ALL of the memorable music is there...no wishing for those additional tracks that most scores leave out. For a sample chronological order for one of the film's memorable sequences, listen to the following in order,

"The Cavalry"
"Ship Down"
"They're Not Dead"

Nearly 2 days later and I'm still listening the heck out of the score. And, thanks for the comment, Everan!

Everan: yep. soundtrack was amazing :P that main theme was catchy.

The movie wasn't too bad; it was engaging, so long as you like sci-fi stuff. Action and acting were pretty good :P Special Effects through the roof too!! I can understand why some people won't like it though :P but if ur not a hardass give it a shot otherwise avoid ahaha

Maybe I'll see it in DVD or something. I dont know, I just want the score right now, maybe it's the only thing "rescueable" from the movie, and the effects.

I bought the soundtrack from Amazon at midnight on the 16th (first available). A very good score which was easy to hear during the movie. In my humble opinion (many people will disagree), Skyline is very effective at giving a chairarm-gripping experience after the first 30 minutes, so it works. The movie won't be a success in the U.S., but it'll be a hit everywhere else. The movie doesn't have a happy-ending, but it's realistic...it doesn't pull out that happy-find-a-virus-to-kill-the-aliens-in-3-days crap. Yeah, the character development's not there, but then, I didn't pay $10 for a tear-jerker, I asked for action, jaw-dropping special effects, and memorable music, all of which I got. Skyline had the courage to give us an alien invasion movie in broad daylight and got that part right on target. And the kicker is, it cost these guys $10 million to make. Hollywood (and everyone else) should take notice of that. Anyway, Margeson did a very good job on the film score. All of the tracks are good, but if you're doing things a la carte, pick up "Abduction", "Make A Run For It", and "The Cavalry". Best bet is to pony up $7.99 and download the entire MP3 score from Amazon.com.
