I posted this in another thread... forgive the duplication.

Does anyone know the correct film order of the tracks included on the soundtrack album for the new UNCLE film, including the 4 bonus tracks (The Red Mist/The Switch/Warhead/Fists)?

Many thanks!

And failing a track order, perhaps a guide to what scenes the tracks are featured in. I saw something on the net about this... but can't find it...

Here are the tracks I'm unsure about where they fit; I noticed some cues got reused in the film at different places:
Circular Story
Drums of War
Take You Down
We Have Location
A Last Drink
The Red Mist
The Switch
Warhead
Fists

Seconding the request for a chronological order.

Also, does anyone know where in the film the original theme popped up? Apparently he quoted it briefly, but I must have missed it.

As I recall, Burlingame's long article on the score says that the theme is quoted around the end of the film.

The original theme pops up for :03 seconds. In the middle of the film, at night, Solo crawls out of the water and gets in a truck. He turns on the truck's AM radio. An opera is playing. He hits a station button, switching to some sort of news or speech, then hits it again and, bingo, Hugo Montenegro's version of the UNCLE theme (the middle 8 bridge/guitar solo) plays for three seconds. Solo hits the button again and Peppino Gagliardi sings Che Vuole Questa Musica Stasera for the rest of the scene (Solo eating a sandwich as Illya is chased, in his boat, by other boats.

The one thing about the movie that annoyed me was this use of the theme... very dismissive. From what I've read, Pemberton tracked a new version of the theme but they didn't use it. Would be nice to see it released.

Ah, so that's why I didn't notice it. Very disappointing indeed. At least a reworked version could have been included on the album. Does anyone know if Pemberton recorded one for sure?

The one thing that annoyed ME about the movie was that no one seems to have ever bothered to SEE an epsode of the TV Man from U.N.C.L.E. Looks like they saw some stills of Jill Ireland in 60s outfits and built a movie around it. Why bother to even use the title?

Why bother to even use the title?

Movies today are crazy expensive to make and market. So they tend to begin with one pre-sold element, regardless of whether that element is useful or a good idea. So we get films like "Battleship" or "The Lego Movie" or "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," although only one of those embraced the pre-sold element (and it was the successful one). "U.N.C.L.E." has been in development for probably twenty years -- I had friends in the '90s who were approached to rewrite it -- and as the source element kept fading from memory, the movie wouldn't quite die.

I believe there really would have been no point in fidelity to the original show -- there aren't enough fans anymore to make that worthwhile. So the people charged with making it just chose to make the best movie they could. Realize, these are not the people who decided, two decades ago, there should be a movie of "U.N.C.L.E."

There have been creative and financial successes that have chosen that same path. This one, apparently, was not.

The film I saw had the tone, vibe and a similar story to the first season episodes "The Quadripartite Affair" and "The Giuoco Piano Affair," both with the same villainess (Gervaise Ravel) and, coincidentally, Jill Ireland, and both destined, originally, to be combined as a single theatrical feature film.

I was more annoyed by the ridiculous score that at times was completely percussion. It worked on occasion but not the whole way through. Sure it had the right feel at times but it wasn't great.

It's missing a theme. Great pseudo 60s pieces but nothing tying together.

Still trying to figure out the film playing order in this one... saw the film again on Saturday.

Primary two mystery tracks, for me, are
RED MIST and WARHEAD (both bonus tracks). Any idea where these play in the film?

Can anyone tell me if this CD comes in a traditional jewel case, or is it a digipak?

Mine was in standard jewel case.

Just picked this up at Amoeba for $7.99. Despite the lack of Goldsmith's theme, I'm liking it way more than I thought I would. Parts of it really have more of a Lalo Schifrin-esque vibe, than Jerry.

This is my favorite film score of 2015. Terrific music.

I completely agree! I think this has been such a fun, exciting year for film, television, and video game soundtracks.

-Big, thrilling new scores from newer voices like Pemberton and Christophe Beck!
-Joe Kraemer coming back out of the wood-work with a furious and fun Mission: Impossible score, the best one yet if you ask me!
-Zimmer challenging himself with the wild and pulse-racing Chappie and the melodic and joyful The Little Prince!
-Patrick Doyle's charming Cinderella!
-Craig Armstrong's simply sublime Far From the Maddening Crowd!
-Giacchino giving us two masterstrokes with Jupiter Ascending and Inside Out!
-John Carpenter returns with a concept album brimming with exciting new material!
-Bear McCreary brings us his continued brilliant work, and makes Outlander easily one of his best!
-Bloodborne and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain unleash multiple composers to establish perfectly evocative musical landscapes for their worlds!
-Modern musicians like Cat's Eyes, Disasterpeace, and Geoff Barrow bring us three of the year's most memorable, if divisive, scores: The Duke of Burgundy, It Follows, and Ex Machina (respectively)!
-Junkie XL delivers one furious, instantly-iconic, and understandably divisive Mad Max score!
-Sadly, we lost the admirable genius of both Edgar Froese and James Horner through tragic means. But Horner gifted us Wolf Totem and Southpaw, both great works in their own rights. And with many more gifts from both late composers in the future, their music is forever ours.

And a new Star Wars in just beyond the horizon!

Hey Steve, could you post your revised chrono tracklist, please?
