  1. Thanks
    Knight of Ren got a reaction from Mr. Who in John Paesano's KINGDOM OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (2024)   
    Here's a quick breakdown of the main themes of the movie. They're not reprised as much as I would like, but fortunately, the three themes for the heroes are presented in a sort of suite-like arrangement in at least one track. They are the following:
     
    Discovery
     
    It's a fairly simple theme, built around a repeating 4-note motif, that represents the human side of the story, particularly Mae and her relationship with Noa. It's presented in a suite arrangement in the track above, and only shines again like that in the final track, We Will Rebuild, but it appears a couple of times more:
     
    -Discovery - 0:08 (fragments), 1:39, 2:19, 4:14, 5:24 (fragments)
    -I Am Raka - 4:07
    -She Is Different - 0:10 (barely heard, almost reduced to just the base chords)
    -They Are Like You - 0:09 (similar to track above)
    -New Weapon - 0:23
    -Very Clever Apes - 1:04
    -We Will Rebuild - 0:00 (fragments), 2:26
     
    Eagle Clan
     
    This is my favorite idea in the whole score, and it represents Noa's home, his tribe and his people. During the second half of the movie is almost completely absent until the final action cue, Ape Aquatics, where it really shines! The track linked above, Memories of Home, is a suite presentation of the theme according to the composer himself.
     
    -The Climb - 2:38
    -Eagle Clan - 0:23, 1:21 (B Section)
    -Noa's Purpose - 1:18
    -Memories of Home - 0:28, 1:26, 2:04 (B Section), 2:33 (plays A and B section together), 3:07
    -Ape Aquatics - 1:26
     
    Noa
     
    This noble theme is heard even less than the previous two ideas, but makes a huge impact on the film in a scene that I won't spoil, covered by the track linked above, that acts as a sort of suite presentation of the idea.
     
    -Eagle Clan - 3:09
    -Noa's Purpose - 2:58 (plays A and B section together)
    -Together Strong - 0:16, 0:52, 1:21 (B Section), 2:06 (plays A and B section together), 2:49
    -It Was Ours - 0:41, 1:31
     
    Proximus Caesar
     
    And then we have the material for the antagonist ape, which honestly was a bit underutilized, making his material quite hard to grasp because of the little time it has to shine. It's a descending three-note motif, sometimes surrounded by tribal percussion. There might be a secondary motif for him and his tribe, but I haven't placed it yet.
     
    -A Kingdom for Apes - 2:02
    -What A Wonderful Day - 1:55, 2:58
    -Apes Will Learn, I Will Learn - 0:18, 1:59
    -Cannot Trust a Human - 0:38, 2:09
     
    So these are the main themes present in the score, and I hope that this little guide helps you better appreciate it. Any theme or iteration I've missed?

    I also just noticed that Noa's theme at 3:09 of Eagle Clan also contains the B Section as counterpoint, just like it does in the Together Strong track! Love revisiting the score and finding out more of these kind of details.
     
    And indeed, Noa's theme is awesome. Such a shame it appears so little, but hopefully will be more important in the sequels. And it does remind me a bit of JNH's fantasy writing!

    To me it sounded like a straight lift from the ending track of Dawn, but perhaps it's a re-recording.
     
    Either way, I feel the score is better appreciated after watching the movie, since like most people here are saying, it's a bit too long and with some uninteresting tracks that work better within the film. But yeah, Paesano delivers a strong score, with a couple of really memorable new themes, that I hope he can develop in upcoming sequels!

    I think he can be great when he's allowed. His scores for Alita and Mortal Engines, as well as some parts of the Rebel Moon scores are a testament to that. But I also feel than for a movie like Mad Max, his usual style works brilliantly, and I don't know if a different type of score would have worked in there. And I suppose Furiosa will have a similar sound, but I hope there's room to hear more pieces in the same style as Many Mothers!

    Pleasant and beautiful score. Indeed, it sounds like a continuation of Giacchino's scores for his Pixar and Disney films, and I really liked that. The main theme is instantly catchy and repeated throughout but never gets boring, as it has enough variation to sustain interest. The whistled variations did remind me of Dan Romer's Luca, as it employed a similar technique, but it has also been used in many other scores, and if it works well, I don't mind it. I wonder how it will work in context...

    Yeah, Paesano's work on the Spider-Man games is really good. Some really strong themes in there, so I'm looking forward to hear what he has done for this. I've only listened to the first track and that new Discovery theme already feels like a development of Giacchino's theme for humanity from the previous films, and then there's also the Goldsmith references, so it's great that he's respecting what came before him!

    Looks like Jason Fujita is now writing on the scores, being credited for Seek the Healer. He was previously credited as 'Music Assistant' on Ahsoka & The Bad Batch series 3.
     
    Also, Ludwig Göransson is credited for Back to Corvus so presumably it references his score from The Mandalorian episode The Jedi.

    If nothing happens within the next couple of weeks to coincide with the start of the new series, I think we're looking at either a release in the late Autumn (i.e. some time after the series finishes) or the same timing as series 10 (so, forget it).
     
    There's more quotes from Gold here:
     
     
     
    In answer to his last part, if an album was sitting on his agent's server and hackers got it, and everyone was excited.... I completely fail to see what the problem is!
     
    The album has been made and is sitting on his agent's server.... how about you release it, Murray? You don't need some massive multi-billion dollar marketing compaign requiring an album to be completed months in advance to press CDs. Drop it digitally, ask Silva to send out an e-mail and watch the fans swarm. The fact that people wanted to resort to hacking indicates how much they wanted to buy it! FFS.
