An interesting album arrangement given the 1994 album arranged the tracks into suites and it seems that's not happening here (and we all know how much hans loves his suites).

The most colorful score by Ramin! I dig it!This is not a best soundtrack of Hans, but the theme "Gap" and the first two minutes for me are very good, no good....excellent.no :(Michael, that's my impression with some Zimmer scores: he composes a suite with the themes, hands the rest to his collaborators and supervise the work. But at the end the cue sheets will give us the information.Lorne did the great majority of the onscreen cues. Hans spent most of his time on this score writing the Moriarty Suite (which is longer than on album and has a few versions).
Is it possible to get full credit list for this score? I'll love to know which tracks Lorne worked in.Why soundtrack albums are made?

@iamtommie44

may i compare with mainstream music for a minute here. albums are important because putting one together is an art form on its own. the best albums are often not the ones with only the good tracks. but of course there are also those you buy because of track #2 or #3

in hiphop for example, mixtapes are a big thing. they seem like a freer album form. a way for artists to test new ideas and project directions. based on the response, those ideas would show up in albums. it's a nice way of testing things (or us lol) since our taste, especially in music, changes often. sometimes these artists want to see what works and what doesn't. i wouldn't mind buying experimental stuff from my favorite composers to be honest.

but anyways, dundirk is a very good album if you ask me. it's one of those that i can listen to in a loop and not get tired of. the tracks carry you along the journey. and by the time you reach the end of the last track, it loops right back into the first one...

So apparently a new score by Djawadi is released tomorrow.

An animated film called 'The Queen's Corgi'. Never heard of it. But curious to hear what Djawadi does with animation.
I know he did one before, but That was quite a while ago, and he has grown quite a bit

I've been wondering something for quite some time now.

Why are there soundtracks albums made? Why aren't the Complete Score/Sessions just released at first hand?

Is there a reason for this?
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 18:16:41
Ahmad
Yes, exactly. It's an experimental film to the core so I wish they walked the extra mile and released the music in an unconventional way by releasing it as one-ish track (there are 2 to 3 pauses actually).

Well... I'm not with you on Marvel lol. They skipped incredible tracks with Captain Marvel and Endgame. There's one cue in CM that's so incredible and I cannot believe they skipped it. Another cue in EG which is literally in one of the biggest and most important moments in the film. They released the cue before it and the cue right after but kept it out of the release.

But I love that they do put out extended versions of the albums digitally and not conforming to the limits of physical media.

Dunkirk is one of those rare instances where the only presentation that would have worked would be a complete one, for the reasons you stated.

And I definitely give major props to whoever is handling the Marvel score releases nowadays. Both of the latest Avengers and Black Panther had some
extremely comprehensive album presentation on the digital side of things. Or even Brian Tyler (who I’m not generally crazy about) and Ben Wallfisch, who put out long albums.

In today’s digital age there is no reason to skimp on music. I’m personally satisfied with Dark Phoenix’s release because, while not complete, it does at least contain almost every major cue (pretty much the last 30 minutes is completely intact). Now that doesn’t mean I’m still not waiting eagerly for that bonus disc....
;-)

@mpolonest123

Long post :)

I totally agree with you. I think this release is very satisfying because you really get most of what you hear in the film. But also it does make the cues not included stand out because you can literally count them, plus they're really short so they could've been included as well.

I really enjoy releases like Justin Hurwitz's First Man where we got literally got every single cue (some alts but still). People still complained about "filler tracks" or whatever that means but you can always make your own playlists.

With Dunkirk (I might be wrong) but I feel like the score doesn't exist in a traditional way like other scores - I'm going by what they Zimmer and Nolan said publicly. The idea that the score was constructed as one long track. Although Nolan did mention exporting having to re-export music stems for archival purposes as they were mixed with unwanted sound effects, so audio files exists. So couldn't they have found a way to export the music and give us a proper film version? They probably could have done that. But I feel like they didn't think it would be a good listening experience so they opted with the suites.

Also, I feel like Hans may not want to release cues if they are heavily edited by music editors. That might be the case with the film version of NTFC and Dunkirk.

Interstellar was an interesting one. It seems very satisfying as we eventually got all important cues but it missed some really good ones like Quantifiable Connection and Landing In Tesseract.

One last thing... although I love physical media and love to collect CDs, why are they still concerned with having to cut stuff out to fit stuff on CDs? Although with Hans it seems like it's more about a pleasant listening experience. But they can put out hours of music digitally while putting a short concept album physically. There should be no limits.

  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 17:37:40

  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 17:19:46

@Ahmad
For me personally it really depends on how well the album is put together/what is missing. If an album is arranged well enough and nothing important is left off I’m usually happy.

The problem with most Zimmer releases (thankfully not this one) is that there are always major/important cues left off for no reason whatsoever. When you are missing “Escape From Ship”, “No Time For Caution”, or most of “Dunkirk” it becomes a burden. Especially when so many composers nowadays are putting out longer albums.

I will say though, I think Zimmer has gotten better in recent years in terms of albums. Dunkirk aside most of his releases have been pretty strong. Compare that with Sherlock Holmes 2 or the Pirates scores.
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 17:12:07

Isn't funny how we always focus on the cues we don't have instead of the really cool ones we already got? :D
CD2 and the school cue lol.
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 17:01:29
badbu
all i want is the "school" cue :D
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 16:12:56
Ahmad
I'm actually quite pleased and surprised that most of the album if not all of it is comprised of actual cues - not suites, not edits (although some tracks are slightly edited like Reckless - which extends the X-Men theme with brass @ 4:20).

The romantic cue/s (I think there's more than one) is a variation of the Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix theme played with high strings.

The end credits are easy to get when the Blu-ray comes out so I don't give it any thoughts. And I think the first part of the cue is probably taken from CD2 or would be featured on CD2.

The cue at the school is really good though. Wish it was put on the album. And that loud swell that played during the title card is incredible.

One thing, they definitely butchered and buried some cues in the mix. The first part of Intimate, parts of Reckless and Insertion, sound effects took the center stage.
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-20 14:57:53
...
I saw the movie again and can confirm that most of the music is on this release. There are 3 unreleased cues I would like to hear... The scene where Jean and professor X arrive at the school, romantic cue which ends with the aliens landing on earth and finally end end credits cue.

Kingfannypack is the MILFcommander
Jenny of Oldstones was an old song in Westeros about a common woman named Jenny of Oldstones, a strange woman who a Targaryen prince rejected his claim to the throne to be with. Before a big battle, a character sings this song and a montage of the various characters plays as they prepare for battle. So that is the melody. The lyrics go like this:

High in the halls of the kings who are gone,
Jenny would dance with her ghosts;
The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
The ones who had loved her the most;
the ones who've been gone for so very long, she couldn't remember their names
they spun her around on the damp old stone
Spun away all her sorrow and pain.
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.

They danced through the day and into the night
Through the snow that swept through the hall
From winter to summer and winter again
Till the walls did crumble and fall
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.

@Edmund
I wonder if this is one of those situations where the material in film is derived heavily from the suites, with everyone either arranging it or adding elements onto it. Just guessing of course, I’m sure we’ll get a clear picture once the bonus stuff gets released.

And apparently there is about 16 hours of music “lying around”, going off of what Hans mentioned in the Vi-Control forums.
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-17 16:53:55
Ahmad
"heavily influenced" indeed :D
I really love Amity and I love how the theme appears in several other cues:
Reckless which features an epic/action rendition
Insertion = a short quote at the beginning
Coda = another call back to the theme

Been listening to the score since I saw the film. Love it. Eagerly waiting for CD2. I wonder if it includes an extended version of the last 2 minutes of Insertion - INCREDIBLE.
  Dark Phoenix2019-06-17 11:03:07
Edmund Meinerts
I guess I should know better at this point but I'm still a little disappointed that there are no solo Hans cues. Although I suppose there could be some hidden inside the longer album tracks.

Because it's heavily influenced by Henry Purcell, that's what Hans said :

"Dark Phoenix is all Henry Purcell... I felt the last few bars of “Dido’s Lament” with the endlessly descending line and the “Remember Me” perfect for the characters... less the tune, more the harmonic movement"
