Hi guys, new poster here. I'm gonna give my two cents in :

I like Zimmer's MOS score. It's not anywhere near Williams' score, nor Hans' himself best score, and I greatly prefer his work on TDK trilogy, but it's a good listen nonetheless.


Welcome. Your opinion will undoubtedly be controversial.

SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE - Krypton & Smallville sequences
SUPERMAN ii - Battle of the super villians done in the style
of TRANSFORMERS cgi destruction

equals MAN OF STEEL

The only controversial part of this post for me is saying that the poster prefers the Dark Knight scores...whereas I find Man of Steel to be significantly better. Even then, it is hardly a controversy, it is opinion...and we are all allowed them smile

Well having listened to it now, despite not generally liking Zimmer's stuff, it's a more enjoyable listen than say, Skyfall's score is on CD.

"For Man of Steel's action sequences, Zimmer put 12 drummers in a circle and recorded them playing different rhythms from inside it — producing a 360-degree, 5.1 surround effect that provides audiences with a uniquely visceral experience"

Never the less a HUGE help. Thank you much!

Some people posting that "This Is Madness" should fit in as track 2.

Does anyone know if the music from the fight with the Ursa chick (right before they deem Superman an ally) in the streets is on here and if so, what track is it?

This crappy, tedious, shallow movie doesn't deserve better music than Zimmer's MoS. The score reflects the emptiness of the movie quite well. Which doesn't make it any better. What a waste of time and money roll eyes

Also, does anyone else hear someone shouting in the first moments of Oil Rig?

Yeah, it sounds as if someone is shouting "UH-OH!!"...I wonder if that was intentional or not - kinda weird if it is, but, what the hey...

UH-OH seems to be right, I hear that too. To me it sounds like a child but I´m not sure. It´s so loud that it has to be deliberate - though I cannot imagine why.

BTW, I like this score. It´s not good but not bad either. It´s pure Zimmer with all disadvantages and advantages. I think that this short main theme he uses works quite well within the context of the score. He also does some things I´ve never heard him doing before (in 'Terraforming')... at least I think so, I know maybe 1/8 of his scores which is not enough to confidently say this.

They're saying, "UH-OH, we need one more drum set for this cue!" smile

I'm enjoying the 2-disc steel book edition immensely.
Right now, I'm on a cross-country road trip promo and luckily, my truck is equipped with a CD player that actually works! (Unlike my previous truck)

The only music I have aside from the radio is Man of Steel and I have been listening to both disc repeatedly.
"What are you going to do..." Is probably the best track. "Arcade" and the other cues that feature the angry Zod theme are also pretty kick-ass.

The one I keep going back to is the 30 minute sketchbook track. I almost prefer this earlier, guitar heavy version of main theme.

And yes, this is the perfect album for going to the gym.

It's a noise that Zack Snyder's young daughter made, which was picked up by the stage mics. They kept it in the mix because they thought it was cute.

That's a nice little tribute to her, now that she's deaf.
