Ironic troll is ironic.

Just block the git. I added him to my ignore list nearly a year ago, and though I still see some of the text from his posts via those who quote him, I haven't regretted the decision.


I just blocked him. What an incredible relief! He's actually the only one on my ignore list.


Same here. He's the only one on my ignore list too.

At the risk of asking a dumb question ...

What's the difference between the two editions?

I'll want to see the film before I buy. Sometimes, I like Zimmer. A lot of the time, I don't.


With no tracklistings released yet, it's impossible to be sure - but I'd put my money on Watertower doing something like they did with The Hobbit - extended and bonus tracks on the special edition, most likely some material on the non-special edition that isn't duplicated on the longer version, perfect for a completist's double-dip! smile

this is a snippet from a mos app. Most likely from the official score


Do all super hero's land on one foot, one knee and one fist nowadays?
Can't land on two feet anymore? big grin

Not really "reading" anything from that music clip. Looks like I will need to see the accompanying visuals.

Doesn't sound like anything thematically from the trailer aside from the instrumentation and some of those 3 against 2 rhythmic figures. This music I'm not as keen on but the trailer material I do like. Zimmer confirmed the trailer music was his from the score. I'm going to stick with that for now.

It makes me wonder which of the two scores will be remembered 100 years from now. Or 1000. JW's or HZ's? (Personally, I doubt HZ himself will be remembered very much... sorry guys!)

Only one who know is YOR. He been there. big grin


In the future people only listen to good music.

So, yes, no one knows who Hanzimmer was.

I'm holding off watching anymore trailers until I see the film. I wanna go in fresh.

I'm definitely liking this recent trend of offering a deluxe edition with extra tracks upfront. No holding off on the first release and waiting around to see if a deluxe edition will eventually come out (as I've done and am still doing with The Dark Knight Rises frown).

That 28 minute long "Man of Steel" track sounds incredibly interesting, too. Brings to mind Zimmer's epic 16 minute long "A Dark Knight" from The Dark Knight. This "Man of Steel" track might not sound quite as finished, but it should at least give a neat glimpse into the process behind Zimmer's approach to Superman.

I'm really looking forward to how the film comes together and how the overall score turns out. Zimmer did some great things with Batman in my opinion. Hopefully he performs just as well with Supes!

Interesting how taste and perpection can be different, when I first listened to The Dark Knight that track called A Dark Knight was a big disappointment to me. Starting off with almost no musical substance and then doing a 16 minute long musical "morendo" , a ckmputer could have 'composed' that better I think however his programming would look like. Redundant music ok, but for 16 minutes? Don't get me wrong, I am not a Zimmer-hater, just really didn't like that empty so called suite, rather a set of exchangeable chord progressions in cool sound design, everyone dealing with improvisations can generate this in minutes.
Hopefully Man of Steel offers much much more than this.

EDIT:
Epic, this word actually means not only 'long'...

Sure, my impressions of some scores might change if I studied music, but as it is I just go with how the music sounds to me and how it makes me feel. I don't mind how long it took someone (or should take someone) to write something if it sounds good. Didn't Jerry Goldsmith mention he wrote the main title to Alien in about an hour? Anyway, it may not exactly be my favorite track off the album, but I find "A Dark Knight" to be moody and evocative and I certainly enjoy listening to it.

Epic, this word actually means not only 'long'...

roll eyes No need to get condescending now. Okay, right, if you want to get technical, the word "epic" probably shouldn't be used to refer to music at all. But per common usage, yes, "epic" can be used to describe something that is large in scale and great.

You are right, absolutely, to each what she or he enjoys.
Nevertheless there are objective criteria about how much musical substance is there and how much elaboration and development.

Alien is a very very good example. The movie version main title is not really more than assembled orchestral effects you can actually improvise on stage, so JG could do that very quick of course. Actually you could record all single elements of such pieces using experimental playing techniques and then everybody could mix those elements like an editor does.

But the original main title using musically substiantial material and elaborating on it JG composed took him much longer, that wasJJG's point.
With Zimmer it is often a stunt, working good in the movie and loved by many, so why elaborate on it in traditional compositorical ways, rather spend a lot of time on the outer appearance, the sound design.
Which is also great - for my taste it is sometimes way too simple, but that's me.

Hoping for more in MOS.

Knowledge isn't necessarily what matters. When I was a music composition major, they had me take a course called "electronic music". It wasn't actually about music, it was more like what I would call "sound portraits" and most of it was the stupid shit I ever heard. Compared to that, Zimmer is Beethoven (now this isn't a knock on Zimmer either -- I like a lot of his music, though much of I find really boring)

A generous amount of music for the money - can't ask for more form a big release like this. Looking forward to it!

I have always enjoyed Yor's posts. He is entitled to his opinion which always comes with a nice dose of humor. Some of you are waaay too uptight.

Zimmer is a bit of hit and miss for me. I really liked what he did for Nolan's Batman trilogy and I find his score for Hannibal strangely addictive.

I will wait to pass judgement on Man of Steel but I'm not overly impressed with the trailers. It looks as if they are trying to do Superman in the style of Nolan's Dark Knight movies. That's like trying to put a square peg into a round hole. And I'm not a fan of the actor who is playing Zod. He's the one weak link in the series Boardwalk Empire. His performance is all one note. I expect a lot of snarling and not much else in his portrayal of Zod..

Yes he is allowed to have his opinions as everyone is. But Yor has to express the single opinion that his brain has (That Zimmer sucks) over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over... whether or not it applys to the current conversation or not. And God forbid that you actually LIKE something that Zimmer did...because your opinion sucks and it is wrong...so say Yor.
