    For who is interested in my thoughts. I have reviewed X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX.

    https://soundtrackworld.com/2019/07/x-m … ns-zimmer/
  1. Apparently Hans Zimmer prepared a second CD for Dark Phoenix that contained many suites and ideas from the conceptual phase of the score. Due to the film's poor performance, it looks unlikely that that CD will be released, but there's a petition going around to demonstrate the public's interest in hearing more music. Sign, if you'd like (though I doubt it will accomplish much):

    Sounds to me like quality over quantity. I have not heard the music of course, so do not know if there is any truth in my statement.

    Also: first review where I get a lot of remarks of "You are wrong". I need a thick skin for this one.
  4. As long as they don't insult you three generations back (which is essentially how modern fans tend to roll in any subject matter), you're fine.

    In recent days, is there another composer whose releases include action montages similar to 'Chase' - The Peacemaker?
  5. No, I don't think even Hans does that anymore.

    True. I can't remember the last time I heard the power anthem style. Maybe the last PIRATES film or something.
    I am extremely serious.
  6. We're not talking about the style here, but the kind of album programming like Peacemaker, Crimson Tide had. I think that he has edited his album differently for a while. I know there was an idea to release Inferno the "old" way (two long tracks), but he was recommended against due to how difficult the score is sometimes.

    Indeed, I am specifically talking about the programming of such action scores.

    I see. Well, I wish he'd do more of that.
    I am extremely serious.
  7. I don't. The tracks on those old Zimmer albums are so long and unwieldy and not always consistent all the way through (they're not naturally flowing like James Horner's long tracks) which makes it hard to pick out the good bits for a playlist.

    Screw bits and playlists! I adore those long suites.

    They aren't a long-form narrative like Horner's cues (except the heavily edited Perfect Storm, actually). Hans has programmed these cues like a prog rock album, some do have 10-15 minutes, even longer, tracks. This approach worked very well in case of some scores (Fools of Fortune, K2, actually), but not so well in others (Crimson Tide could have better material selection, but the idea itself works; Peacemaker is actually a LOT more subtle than the album gives it credit, to the point of belying the structure, not unlike, actually, Thin Red Line).

  9. Also, if there is a long-form cue on a Zimmer album now, it's more likely and not that rather than combining bits and pieces in one score (like Crimson Tide or Peacemaker's Sarajevo), they are derived from his original suites. That said, sometimes he actually divides his suites into shorter chunks, while retaining their long form by virtue of flawless crossfades. A very notable example is Da Vinci Code, where the whole second half of the album (from Poisoned Chalice to Chevaliers) is essentially, the edited "concept suite" he wrote before scoring the film proper.

    God, I miss those days. The two tracks on K2 are so brilliant. Yes, they could technically be separated into tracks (like Poledouris' LES MISERABLES), because the suite thinking is marginal, but I just love the 'ritual' of sitting down and getting engrossed into a musical 'ascent' and a musical 'descent'.
    I am extremely serious.
  10. K2 (which was done by Robert Townson, not by anyone fromt he Hans Zimmer team or the man himself) is one of the very best compilations of that kind.

    In the case of some scores it's not the type of presentation I disagree with, but rather the chosen material. Both Crimson Tide and Peacemaker have MUCH better material left off, in the latter case the beautiful dramatic theme is featured much, much more often. On Crimson Tide, the main title cue and a long cue when Hackman is relieved of duty could replace quite a bit of the released material.
