Zimmer uses a real orchestra and themes in a lot of his scores.


A shame he dubs it so heavily with synths, you'd swear it was all electronic


Yup pretty much. Not sure why they bother using an orchestra at all if a natural orchestral sound is not the goal. I know it isn't zimmer but with 300 Rise of an Empire (though produced at Remote Control Productions) I couldn't believe they actually used an orchestra when I saw it in a recording video because you wouldn't know from the sound of the music in the movie.

I've always written it 'Spiderman' and wasn't aware that the hyphenated spelling was the correct one.

Check out at the 20 second mark. wink

Hmmm...not sure what to make of these samples. It's certainly...different from Horner's score. I'm sure this will spark a 'Captain America'-like debate. Ok guys...shoot!

I don't know, I'm getting an old school Zimmer vibe from these samples. It's no Dark Knight.

AAARGH what does that clip from "The Electro Suite" sound like? Driving me crazy. Not that bizarre Elfman-like singing (WTF is that all about??).

Sorry, guys, but I enjoy these samples.

Looking forward to this score even more now.

Me too actually. Especially The Electro Suite, which intrigues me.

No need to say sorry, you like what you like. Nobody 'has to' buy this score.

Count me in. I am sure I am one of the few thats excited for this. Glad there is a delux though most of it seems to be songs shoe-horned in. At least we'll get a couple extra score cues a la MOS.

The end credits of CORALINE...at least, to my ears.

Yep, count me in for this one, too. I like what I'm hearing. Some of it brings to mind the old Zimmer action licks ( Broken Arrow / Black Rain / Drop Zone era ). In other samples I'm digging the Tangerine Dream sound from several cues starting with "There He Is". The voices/ singing... not so much... maybe Electro gets all crunked or something big grin ? Still, it sound very good so far!

No one has commented on the "hans zimmer and the magnificent six" artist listing? big grin

Samples of both movie and score do little for me, I'll still see it cause I liked the first one.

Still not sure what to make of this score... quite a diverse mix of styles in the samples and it'll be interesting to see if something cohesive comes out of this. Electro suite just sounds like an outtake from Nightmare Before Christmas! It certainly sounds better than Man of Steel did from its samples. We'll see...

I'll give it a whirl but my hopes aren't especially high, given that the last film was as dull as a beige room in a Manila folder factory in the desert and that Spider-Man's theme is a direct copy of probably the most famous piece of Americana music from the classical repertoire.

Which piece are you talking about? I heard it all over Mahler's Symphony of a Thousand.

Simply Amazing!!! Batman, Man of Steel and now this.
Maestro Zimmer is for sure the top for movies from comics.

Can't wait to have this double CD.

Hm. Some really electronic , dub-step-ish parts I greatly dislike, like in "I'm Electro". I don't listen to that type of music, but I understand it has popular appeal. And then there are the pieces with a great horn melody, like "I Need to Know" and "I'm Spider-Man". Color me intrigued; I'll have to get a more complete listen before I decided to buy or skip.
