For me, a theme is a distinguishable motif or piece of music that is related to a specific location, event or most commonly character, and that the viewer notices as such. If your score contains 20 themes that are never repeated in a similar form and are so uncharacteristic that they all sound the same, I'm just calling that orchestra noise. And I don't see any appeal in that kind of scoring...Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.
I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...<br>That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.BOOKLET CREDITS (From The Album):<br><br>Score Composed, Produced And Mixed By<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Additional Music By<br>ALJOSCHA CHRISTENHUB<br>ANTONIO DI IORIO<br><br>Orchestra Conducted By<br>JOHN ASHTON THOMAS<br><br>Technical Score Engineer<br>ALEX RUGER<br><br>Additional Programming By<br>EMILY RICE<br>JACOPO TRIFONE<br><br>Music Editor<br>SIMON CHANGER<br><br>Assistant Music Editors<br>BEN SMITHERS<br>ARABELLA WINTER<br><br>Music Consultant<br>BOB BADAMI<br><br>Score Orchestrated And Copied By<br>JONATHAN BEARD<br>EDWARD TRYBEK<br>HENRI WILKINSON<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Librarian<br>JILL STREATER<br><br>Orchestra Contractors<br>ISOBEL GRIFFITHS<br>SUSSIE GILLIS<br><br>Orchestral Recording Engineer And Mixer<br>NICK WOLLAGE<br><br>Orchestra Recorded At<br>AIR STUDIO<br><br>Air Studios Managers<br>ALISON BURTON<br>CHARLOTTE MATTHEWS<br>LUCY MATTHEWS<br><br>Music Production Services<br>MICHIEL GROENEVELD<br><br>Agent<br>AMOS NEWMAN<br><br>Legal Representation<br>DAVID ALTSCHUL<br><br>Music Recorded <br>6-7 January 2018<br>At<br>AIR STUDIOS, London<br><br>Score Published By<br>UNITED LION MUSIC, INC.

why hybrid when lorne himself confirmed it? <.<@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.
I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent newsNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(

Hans so where is that voices by people of th world?!!! i knew that was a commercial joke.


matthew2012-08-18 21:38:25
well, maybe it wasn't that angry and loud as he expected so it became an abondoned concept. but that's his job = making direct choices. so he did the chant in a different way. BUT...
the chant is really an interesting topic to talk about because
I think it was an amazing idea but it was presented so badly in the film and also in the score release. the mix is soo awful.
you have to use headphones to hear it. especially in Imagine The Fire (one of the best hollywood-blockbuster-action-here-comes-Chris-Nolan track ever)
so what Hans created is again beyond imagination but the mix or I don't know what I'm not a composer but it yust doesn't sound right to my ear. I can't wake up my neighbours with the chant...
I'm not disappointed, I'm angry


Ds2012-08-19 18:48:44
Personnally i think the chant is very cool and well used! Maybe not über-loud but still nice!


Lucas2012-09-02 20:40:25
About the chant: if thousands of people screamed at once, I don't think we would get a 'clean' sound anyway. I believe Hans mixed it in that diffuse way, kinda stifled by the orchestrated elements to improve the deep original proposition of the chant: it's like a ghost that keeps reminding you of what you are and what you need to be. The chant is the heart of the soundtrack and the orchestra builds itself upon it and envelope it, keeping the chant deep inside - there where you can't reach but you can't run from as well. Love the soundtrack.

The voices mixed so bad! like ''Angels & Demons'' are apathetic and ridiculous!

Repeating of previous versions along with inception shadows, This is weakest in the series!

After hearing i also remember King Artur for its ambient and huge accents but this one is more rowdy!

Epic film deserves epic music - that's not it. Standard RCP music. There's even Scorpionok in there!
5/10 - will verify after movie.

Where is that incredible stuff that HZ did with huge orchestra? He said that this will be something crazy, that he never had done.


ananymous2012-07-11 18:11:59
Exactly how it looks like ...
The german word for "promise" has two meanings.
"Versprechen" means "promise" or "misspeak".
Maybe we just misunderstood him.


Pierre2012-07-11 18:56:38
He probably meant, a huge choir.

But I don't think this is standard RCP music. It's a great score, epic music for what looks like an epic film, a wonderful progression and development of the previous entries in the franchise, and above all, it's a million miles better than all the drivel that comes out of people like Djawadi, Jablonsky, Jackman, Zanelli, Orvarsson, Dooley, Margeson, and Balfe when they go for solo efforts.


tomPoland2012-07-12 07:51:58
X-Men First Class is better, when it comes to comic-based score.

Bane and Catwoman has nice themes, but thats it.
I just expected more, especially after very weak Sherlock and Pirates.

It's missing a number of the great tracks featured in the trailers. Namely all the tracks from the Official Trailer 3. Kind of disappointing, hope they will be released sometime.

It was released as a HD MP3 in the audio download package from the "Imported from Gotham City" contest. Not only that, but they packed it with the stems (meaning they also released the separate recordings that it was made from, the violins in one file, the chanting in another, all separated, etc.)
