Most of the tracks are OK but there are some that sound like experimental noise... Still, I'm curious about the actual film score.

Here is the first review I've seen about DUNE. (three and a half out of four stars.) Yes, it mentions Hans Zimmer.

"Hans Zimmer’s let’s-test-those-subwoofers score evokes Christopher Nolan."

Oh, dear, here we go again!

I got a headeache just by reading that...

I noticed that you neglected to mention (or read) that the critic compares the sound of the score to Maurice Jarre's work on Lawrence of Arabia and Gyorgi Ligeti's pieces from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Par for the course for much of the "Zimmer Derangement Syndrome" that this board is notorious for.

Yes, we all know that Zimmer often steals from other composers, specially Ennio Morricone.

Just one more reason to despise this person.

i have always liked the book. The David Lynch movie i did not like. The TV series was okay but there were subtleties that were missing. But I guess the Dune movie l would like to see is impossible. Let's see what this one will be like.

Listening to The DUNE Sketchbook on Spotify.
Not sure if this is what will be in the movie or it's just his "image album" (as they call it in Japan).

It may very well work perfectly with the picture, but on its own, it's really boring and uninspiring.

I'm not a total Zimmer hater (I like some of his works) but this is not connecting with me.

He did a much better work on Black Hawk Down (because that's what this music reminds me of).

I still have very high hopes for the Sketchbook, OST, and Movie; but the first cue is bringing back flashbacks of Zimmer's The Amazing Spiderman 2 for me. !

I'm getting a real strong Virgin-era Tangerine Dream vibe from this.
Oy vey, is it possible that Zimmer has only just recently discovered them?

Sounds like a mash up of Gladiator and Batman Begins played at half speed.

Interesting ideas. I wonder how those ideas translate to the actual score.

Zimmer spoke about Tangerine Dreams long time ago. He was asked if a non-melodic score can be a great listening experience out side of the film and he used Tangerine Dream as an example of music that can be that.

Okay, so I guess it's only recently that he began lifting from them.

(Of course, I could be wrong and he may have been lifting from them for a long time now.
I wouldn't know for sure--I certainly don't follow his career that intently these days.)

NO. IT'S NOT.

It's just a homemade burned CD-R disc, with a booklet printed on a standard ink printer.
Shitty quality of the entire release.

The first 1 minute of this is the sound of someone having an Asthma attack during a thunderstorm, right?

This will be great in the movie, I am sure.

Hey! I think this person doesn't like Zimmer! The subtext is subtle but if you know what to look for you can see it.

Of course the rest of the album isn't really anything like the first track. I don't like it and my brother loves it. Something for everyone.

I'm listening to The Shortening of the Way on a loop. Moon Over Calandan is quite good too.

Maybe this will be another case where the US release is CDr, and is pressed everywhere else. It is Watertower.

But I love the sound of someone having an Asthma attack during a thunderstorm.

Now I like Zimmer too.
