I agree so much! Run Free and Homeland are so delightful, entertaining, propulsive, emotional, really grand music.<br><br>Btw I can't help thinking Homeland would have been an amazing fit somewhere in the concert setlist!I can maybe, maybe hear a bit of Toys in there, but where Clemmensen is hearing The Rock is anyone's guess. Then again, he seems to be particularly good at hearing Crimson Tide in particular in scores that don't sound like it at all (really, any time Zimmer uses a male choir, it's a Crimson Tide clone)...and all while giving Horner multiple free passes for far worse. Oh well. Just shrug and laugh it off.<br><br>I'm not sure the Spirit as a whole is as well-rounded as Lion King or Prince of Egypt (it gets a bit repetitive after a while), but I ADORE the themes, and I'd put "Run Free" from the original album in my top 10 Zimmer cues ever. The whole thing sounds so warm and organic for some reason (which is odd considering it's so synth-heavy). It's like musical comfort food. :)I keep saying<br>the electronic parts were the good part of TWS, not terrible ideas at all<br>the album was just a horrible representation of the score<br>I understand going orchestral for this tho<br>It just doesn't sound like a /theme/, per say; it very well could be /for/ Spider-Man, or at least for a Spider-Man scene, but it's not a /theme/ like, say, "Is She with You?" was a theme for Wonder Woman, or "Red Capes" was a theme for Lex.<br><br>Okay, probably bad examples, but hope that makes sense ...@ZekeWars010 Lol, yet you're listening to it now. Okay..
@ThePaleKing So the track "New Recruit" isn't solely for Spider-Man?Hopefully ...<br><br>I've picked up on Zemo's, Panther's, the Civil War's, and /possibly/ Spider-Man's so far, and I can't really say much other than they're perfectly serviceable.<br><br>Zemo's is nice enough, the Civil War's is pretty good, and for Panther and Spider-Man, they don't really feel like /themes/ so much as /recurring motifs/, which, again, I can live with.<br><br>If anything, the most memorable parts of this one have been the fully orchestrated segments from "The Winter Soldier." I just wish / hope the badass electronic bits came back as well.Lack of themes? But there are themes for Zemo, Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-Man, and the Civil War. Maybe you need more time.Reading the filmtracks review of this score... makes me want to cry.<br><br>"any hint of the enthusiasm or epic size that was evident in The Lion King or The Prince of Egypt is completely missing here."<br><br>"sound like the bastard child of the themes from The Rock and Toys"<br><br>What a crazy read. It's one of my all-time HZ favourites, I find it so refreshing, epic and thematically rich. Every time I hit the play button, I'm 11 again...You see, weirdly enough, it doesn't feel all that robust or powerful to me.<br><br>Maybe this can just be equated to personal tastes or whatever, but this has so far invoked a very similar feeling I had to most of Silvestri's work on TA, and at least that had a /really/ strong main theme to keep me interested.<br><br>At the end of the day, I guess this just feels lacking in a distinct sense of identity from Jackman; say what you will about TWS, but the ideas there at least felt more unique. Sure, I could've done without the veritable /over/abundance of electronic stuff at times, but his main theme(s) all worked really well for me, and played out really interesting both on / offscreen.<br><br>Honestly, I was hoping, if he decided to go more "full orchestra," we'd get something more along the lines of Kingsman or First Class, and this doesn't even feel like that.<br><br>I mean, it's certainly not /painful/ to listen to, but the listening experience just feels a little halfhearted, shallow, and kind of a letdown to me.<br><br>But again, maybe seeing it play out in the film itself will change my mind.
See, most of us are feeling the exact opposite! He took all the terrible ideas from Winter Soldier and replaced them with a robust orchestral action score. It's excellent!+1 totally agree, I'm also disappointed. Expecting another "TWS" and has nothing to do.I really do hate to be /that/ guy, but it sucks that this one isn't really doing it for me.<br><br>I mean, it'll probably work better in the film itself, but it just seems like Jackman took the complaints with TWS's soundtrack to heart /too/ much, and ended up swinging things too far in the opposite direction.<br><br>Sure, it's definitely more orchestrated and "cinematic," if you will, but it doesn't really have any of the power found in tracks like "The Winter Soldier," "The Causeway," "Into the Fray," etc. The lack of themes is also a /major/ letdown.<br><br>Who knows, maybe this one'll just take time to grow on me ...Yes, exactly. There is 2 parts approximatively 1h15 by part and 20 min for the entract.<br><br>Have a good showIsn't it funny that Jackman's name is bigger than Lewis'. It's just like the score for Divergent; Zimmer's was bigger than Junkie's.
There's a typo in the title, there's only one "m" in  "Cimarron" :-pEdmund, I really love that soundtrack! Very reminiscent of some of my favorite parts from Madagascar 3, actually!!@Russel I doubt it.Count about 3 hours in total.<br><br>My show started at 8.20pm (instead of 8.00pm), and ended at around 11.00pm.Does he and the band actually talk to people afterwards or something, sign cds. Will be in budapest for the show so would like to know whether to bring a cd or two.

does anyone no anything bout wat is happing with the score and will the score be in the next trailer


Mike2013-03-15 20:25:46
We'll probably hear ELEMENTS of the score (kinda like for the 3rd and 4th Dark Knight Rises trailers).


Man Of Steel2013-03-17 23:11:38
Got a chance to listen to a little of the score. And it's awesome! Very, VERY different than anything Williams ever did. But still amazing. King Arthur drum cadences against alot of brass bends and electric guitars...yes i did just say electric guitars in a superman score.


d.j2013-03-17 23:18:17
may i ask how did you get two listen to it and where did you get to??


Mike2013-03-18 00:31:47
I would say, d.j., that Man of Steel doesn't know what he's talking about. :)


Man of Steel2013-03-18 20:32:38
I would say i do know what im talking about. Unfortunately i cannot say how Ive heard it cuz i don't want anyone to lose their jobs. D.J simply asked and i told him. You can believe it or not. But when you finally hear it, you'll see my description wasn't wrong.


d.j2013-03-18 20:54:20
man OF steel it's cool just keep us updateed bout what you no bout the score and i have one more ? do you no if they will put wat you heard in the new trailer and do you no when the trailer will come out


Man Of Steel2013-03-19 05:43:39

You make a good point Mike, and it's exactly what I was going to say. The theme is there, whether you like it or not. If it's not the kind of theme you wanted is another matter...

Btw, Tom Holkenberg (Junkie XL) tweeted that the score is finished. This does give Hans plenty of time to do Lone Ranger after all. I guess this means we should defiinitely hear the theme in the next trailer for sure.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 21:12:06
Yeah Man of Steel is already "past tense"... :)


Lorne told me they really are working together with Hans on that Bible TV series. And from what he said, he didn't work with HZ at all on Man Of Steel or any other HZ project. I guess that's the first time a big HZ score has no Lorne in 8 years... :O

Lorne has way too many things to carry on !

Oh and Geoff Zanelli has done a little work on Man of Steel. :)


Mike2013-01-05 21:33:46
Have you heard any of MOS Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 22:36:20
Nope and just for once I'll try not to hear any SAMPLE before I see the film... :)


MGDrone2013-01-06 01:26:30
So, on Additional Music for MOS we can expect to hear something from Zanelli and Junki XL? Do you know who else is on the project?

I'm excited to hear what they're cooking up for the Bible series. Do my ears deceive me, or is that Lisa Gerrard I hear? (I'm referring to the Youtube video.)


Mike2013-01-06 03:36:13
To that, Hybrid, I say: good luck. :P


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-06 09:05:23
It is Lisa Gerrard... :)

All the music from the trailer is from the show. There's also that big 5 min "Nativity" clip on youtube, with score too (and Lisa)... :)

Mike reply Replies: 9 || 2012-10-23 09:30:59
Something just occurred to me. Perhaps for the Man of Steel score it would be best not to expect a "main theme", instead awaiting multiple "sub-themes". Because in Batman, there's not one theme, strictly speaking, but several.

Either way, I'm excited for what this score might bring, especially considering that Zimmer won't be going for the bass-heavy, percussive Dark Knight approach.


Mike2012-10-23 09:38:10
Errr, excuse the thing about bass heaviness. He never specifically said that.


MGDrone2012-10-23 18:30:48
I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. What people should keep in mind is that this Superman is going to be incredibly different from Donner and Reeves' Superman. There's no reason we should expect a theme similar to John Williams' theme. On the same level, yes, but not similar. There's also no reason Hans should try to score this like anyone but himself.

I really can't say what I want the score to sound like since I didn't really get the feel of the movie from the teaser. All I can hope for is that Snyder will give Zimmer free reins and let him score the movie like he knows it should be scored.


Mike2012-10-23 23:19:07
Although I gotta say I wouldn't mind hearing something along the lines of Williams' Krypton theme. They was great stuff!


Bondo2012-10-24 03:34:00
You're not gonna hear anything that sounds like John Williams


Mike2012-10-24 04:27:53
Oh, I know. Just saying.


tomPoland2013-01-04 13:52:31
Superman theme is a must be. Powerfull, beautiful, memorable.
And without ostinatos that RCP people over-use.

"No theme" in Batman had some sense, but this is SUPERMAN, American icon.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-04 14:00:29
What "no theme" in Batman ?

You def ?


I can find PLENTY of themes in Batman.


tomPoland2013-01-04 15:28:54
No Batman theme, lots of minor themes but no direct melody to describe dark knight. There are those two notes, but it's hardly to call it a theme, don't you think?


Mike2013-01-04 20:12:33
Well, Hans considered the two notes to be a theme. Is there a definition of theme you're going by, where these two notes truly don't make the cut?

Le Lombardi from Brazil reply Replies: 5 || 2012-08-14 05:28:44
I can believe that you will not use for just a seconds the theme create by master John Williams. My dear Hans Zimmer it is for just a seconds, the power of this theme is UNIVERSAL and imortal. You know...some themes we will never forget, and stay for the hero, not for the film. ROCKY, STAR WARS, ET, RAMBO, STAR TREK TV, STAR TREK MOVIE, INDIANA JONES, HARRY POTTER, JAWS, TERMINATOR, IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, PLEEEASE MR. ZIMMER use your feelings.

IT IS FOR JUST A FEW SECONDS, THEME FOR SUPERMAN BY JOHN WILLIAMS, JUST FOR A FEW SECONDS, PLEASE.



NTNBaessi2013-01-03 03:55:25
Come on, a score is not a jingle for the character. The theme composed by J. Williams probably will not fit the tone of this new movie. Just get over it and embrace the new...


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 04:01:36
Just watched some videos on Youtube that mix The Dark Knight with the Danny Elfman old score for Batman/Batman Returns. It seems incredibly awkward, does not fitting the movie at all. This is just what could happen if they try to use J. Williams theme in Man of Steel. New franchise, new theme. PLEASE!


Areozz2013-01-03 04:54:44
Hans Zimmer on "The Dark Knight" + Danny Elfman on "Batman"/"Batman Returns" = Hans Zimmer on "Man of Steel"? How the heck does that make any sense? And do you really think that by complaining on an almost official page for RCP will get Hans Zimmer's attention and that he will choose to rework his whole score based solely on some mash-up videos that you saw on YouTube?

fools


Mike2013-01-03 05:06:52
Plus, I believe the score is written already. Wasn't there talk recently of how it was being recorded?


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 05:08:41
Did you actually read what I just wrote? Were did a mention that he should rework his score? I am saying that people should be open to the new sound that he possibly will bring to Man of Steel and not be stuck thinking on Williams score. Le Lombardi from Brazil says that Zimmer should use the classic Superman theme on MOS, which is movie totally different in tone, making the old theme unfitting. And if you use your brain you can clearly make a relation between this situation and what happened with the Batman movies...

The new Man of Steel trailer will premiere in front of The Hobbit on december 14th. Do you think it'll feature brand new music by Zimmer?

Remember the wonderful trailer #3 for The Dark Knight Rises a year ago... :)
