Who exactly is this Nami Melumad person and why is MG working with her?

A composer with whom Giacchino worked with recently on 'An American Pickle'. Maybe Giacchino's involvement with Batman has forced him to step back and just offer themes for others to work with.

That was the first thing I thought when reading that.... does the author of that quote know anything about scoring? :lol:



It’s great to have Michael back, because he even says that music is everything to generate emotion 


A composer even thinks music generates emotion? Wow!

I dunno man, it's been 20 years, I wouldn't have been surprised if they wanted all new themes.


The 2010 reboot didn't use them

Because it was "modern warfare" wasnt it?


This new game revisitis the WWII theater.

Correct. The 2010 game and its sequel was a full series reboot.


This VR game has one of the original creators on board, and they used Giacchino’s original music in the announcement video that was released awhile back.

Holy cow, that new main theme is good!


... at least from a writing perspective.  The sound - I dunno if its the recording, the performance, the mastering, or all three- leave a lot to be desired

The opening notes of the main melody sounded a little too reminiscent of one of his Jurassic World themes to me at first, but as it goes on, it's lovely, patriotic, and emotional.  I'll be curious to hear the theme stretch its legs in an action-music context elsewhere in the score.  Great to have this franchise honoring its roots like this!
