Aren't the majority of soundtracks released the Tuesday before the that Friday the movie comes out?

So wouldn't the soundtrack be 3/3?

This better not be like Interstellar and released 2 weeks after the film comes out lol

I can ask any of the people and they'll remember the music from the Stampede sequence and the film ending. Likewise, they'll remember the music from ROTK "The Ring is mine" scene, the Fellowship theme and Sauron's theme. And people seem to recall the Star Wars Main theme, Duel of the Fates and even the Droid March quite well. So I'd say that your assumption that the general public can't recognise more than one theme from other scores is wrong. It all depends on taste: some people will remember certain films' themes better than others, and that goes for all film scores, including this one.

"The transition from major (hope) to minor key (realization)"

To be fair that's a pretty basic and common composition technique.

WAY more people are going to be able to hum/recall Pirates than anything from the Lion King score, I'd say, let alone LotR or Star Wars or Harry Potter. Maybe it's just the people you hang out with but I've never gotten the impression that the score from Lion King has seeped into the public consciousness to that degree. Songs, sure, but not the score.

Furthermore, I would actually compare the LK score to Shore's LoTR - many, many distinctive themes (Fellowship, Rivendell, Isengard, Rohan, Mordor etc.), and people will never fail in recognising them as belonging to LoTR.

Yeah, I meant it in terms of public recognition, not general thematic variety. Although, I must add, I do think Williams' secondary themese rarely match the main ones in terms of instant recognisability. There are exceptions ("Duel of the Fates", for example), but his secondary motifs are usually more subtle.
I wouldn't throw PotC into the mix as an example, because as well known as it may be, it isn't THAT big of a beloved classic. The Lion King is, and is IMHO easily comparable to Star Wars or Harry Potter (although those are full theatrical franchises). And that being said, I really do believe that people in general are more likely to pick up on a Lion King's secondary (!!!) themes rather than the Star Wars or Potter ones.

Turdmaster3000
I'm pretty sure said jab was referring to how public audiences can only recall one theme from his scores. Although, I'd give them a bit more credit, as more often than not, they'd at least remember 2-4 more out of each of his particular iconic works, and only the secondary and less significant themes are not as identifiable for them.

Concerning The Lion King, I'm not sure the public recognizes many themes from the film(despite it containing around a dozen reoccurring motifs). It's mostly about the songs to them.

The most well recognized ones are really just the Mission-inspired theme for Simba, and the classically-inspired one for Mufasa. More often than not, they're both mistaken as just one theme altogether as well. If you just approached a casual fan of the work and asked them what their favourite particular theme was, they'd probably just give a vague "King of Pride Rock" answer, which actually contained lot more than just one theme.
  The Lion King (The Legacy Collection)2015-02-25 10:57:28
Edmund Meinerts
You had me right up until the little jab at the end. Are you saying all Williams can do is write monothematic scores? Because that's pretty stupid if you are.

If you're just saying that Williams' scores are only recognized for the one theme, well, yeah...the public are idiots who are deaf to film music, but that's hardly Williams' fault. Nobody remembers much out of PotC other than "He's a Pirate" either, but we all know there's way more to those scores than that.

My music teacher when I was in school analyzed the scene where Mufasa (spoiler) dies.
I never realized how much thought got into that. The transition from major (hope) to minor key (realization). I think from a "as written for picture" point of view it deserves the Oscar above all other. It even beats wall-to-wall game changer Backdraft Imo

The Lion King score is, of course, a masterpiece. Just watched the movie the other day and listened to the Legacy remaster and I was - once again - blown away. I totally agree with Turdmaster3000 (ahem...) that for a 90 minute feature it is incredibly rich and varied. Hans was a bold choice for the movie, as the movie itself was bold for that time, and it all paid off. For me, those melodies are soul-shattering, adrenaline-inducing and uplifting to this day. It's an iconic score through and through, instantly recongizable everywhere and not just for one solitary theme, as is the case for many of - and I'm just gonna say it - John Williams' scores.

Figures? What figures?

If you mean sales, by that measure Justin Bieber is one of the greatest musicians in history and Fifty Shades of Grey is a literary masterpiece. That's even more ludicrous than using the Oscars.

Define "best".

It's all subjective, there is no point arguing either way, which is how it is for any art form.

it is his best score by any measure. if you find the oscars flawed then look at the figures. the figures are always right.

This is a nice little score that nobody seems to have talked about much. Alternates between some very stylized pseudo-classical stuff and more typical dramatic TV scoring. Good work by Buckley.

Also, the song at the end, "I Wanna Kiss Peter Florrick", is hilarious. :P

@Hybrid While The Lion King is my personal favorite and I find it to be one of his best works(it's also commendable how thematically dense it is for a score to a 85-89 animated minute feature), it definitely isn't his earliest top tier work. As previous replies noted, there's a good number of material that preceded it which were pretty outstanding.

@kens Using Oscars as for a reason why a score is superior to another is flawed logic. Let us not forget hilariously wrong choices like at the 83rd Academy Awards where The Social Network's soundtrack beat out the likes How To Train Your Dragon, Inception, and The King's Speech.

if you're just listening off the soundtrack album listen to the second half of "paradox"...it's in there...it also plays at the beginning of the movie when it shows the old man saito...and it also plays when saito is lying wounded on the table, and when he throws the grenade down the ventilation shaft in the snowy dream level :P

Hey Anonymous, can you be more specific please? I've never been good at distinguishing themes and I'd like to know what your interpretation of Saito's theme is. Thanks!

can we safely say zimmer wrote the saito theme (ya know, the super-low string theme daaaaaa DWAAAAAAAA....lol) since it was in the hans zimmer revealed concert?

"It's a good score, and it sure helped Hans get recognition at a fairly early stage in his career, but I'm one of those who doesn't think it's quite a masterpiece."

Nice to hear someone else have this opinion. I've always felt like I was alone!
