Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.

On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.

It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking.

It's a shame no one talks about this score.

It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music!

Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!

Mr Tweedy
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.

I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.

Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).
Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".
The credits here tend to prove they were right.

All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.

A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques.
Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.
It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.

Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.

Edmund Meinerts
OK, so a thought...

"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :p

I'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up.

It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?

I agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.

Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight.

If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.
  Batman Begins2019-08-20 01:53:52

Gotcha covered.

1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk
2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training
3. Myotis = Temple Fight
4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave
6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard
7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen
8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home
9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1
10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase
11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks
12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite

Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.

Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)

Yeah, that theme starting at 1:35 is totally Black Rain! I love it though.

So is nobody going to point out that Hans just casually slipped a theme from Black Rain into the middle of "Millennium Theme"...like, note for note? :p

Well, considering there's a lot more advanced orchestral writing in a lot of Transformers: The Game (which was composed by Jablonsky and Flood), than in many of Steve's other projects, I can't help but feel the more advanced stuff here was Flood too. Plus Flood's contribution to "Flying Battle" in D-War kind of makes him seem like the more advanced orchestra composer.
  Outlander2019-08-18 05:05:59

Any idea about Bobby's credits here Hybrid? ASCAP doesn't list anything for the specific album cues and I got no idea what to search for regarding session names. Bobby is credited on the "Outlander Theme" though, so does that mean that every cue with the main theme present he should be credited?
  이데아 (AKA Idea) (VG)2019-08-18 05:03:51

If you have no idea what exactly Flood contributed to the cues then theres not much reason to be sad about it.

Credits for Jay Flood taken from his soundcloud:

Divine Magic Kingdom (Prelude)
Blessing (Annette Raleigh Theme)
Wonderland (Mark Theme)

Kind of sad to see "Blessing" and "Wonderland" were at least partially composed by Flood instead of Jablonsky, as those were the most rich, unique, and impressively composed.

The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime «Orbital Era». I don't know the story behind the creation of «Steamboy» and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite.

It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.

I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.

I am still surprised that "X-SS" isn't inserted into "Gap." That is easily the best iteration of the main theme.

This is seems like HBO wanting to get Djawadi and couldn't get him so they get the guy next door.

Honestly, they should have gone for Wallfisch or Harry Gregson-Williams (probably too busy with Mulan).

Poor Micheal thinks Mikeal's response is simple disagreement when it contains sentences like;

"Also film music doesn’t have to sound like it’s from the 1960’s all the time." Implying that's the only music Edmund likes.

Also, poor Micheal thinks pages can't have any other discussion other than the movies on them! (Plus, considering the fact that Balfe does do projects in a short time span all the time, it's not exactly negative to point out that producers hire him for that task too much.)
