Product Description

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2 (OSC)

Amazon.com

Film scorer Hans Zimmer, who helped pioneer the seamless technological merging of electronic and acoustic instruments in film scoring, has long had an interest in musical fusion. But in scoring director John Woo's action-sopped Tom Cruise star vehicle, Zimmer has concocted a wildly uneven stew of electronica, flamenco, rock, medieval, and world music that's about as subtle as Cruise's career ambitions. There are moments of surprising tranquility (Zimmer's duet with Heitor Periera on the Spanish-guitar-driven "Nyah") amid the pulsing beats and blaring samples, and even a few passages reminiscent of his other summer 2000 blockbuster, Gladiator. But as a musical stew, this one could use another dollop of simple meat and potatoes; it's certainly a long way from The Lion King, The Thin Red Line, As Good As It Gets, or any of his other best scores. --Jerry McCulley

Customer Reviews

Bravo Hans Zimmer!
THE-GO-BETWEEN
Hans Zimmer's style is apparent in this one, though the techno/heavy guitar influences are *very* new to the Zimmer soundscape in terms of how he uses them.
Jeron Moore
A must buy for Zimmer fans and movie score buffs, or anyone else who wants some intense music to spice up their CD collection.

Hans Zimmer in his true element. The Score to M:I-2 is a truly spectacular mixture of Spanish guitar music, classic Zimmer work, Lisa Gerrard's moody singing and heavy distorted guitar action cues. As I have noticed, not everyone seems to like the use of "Heavy Guitars" in film scores. I, on the other hand, love it. It really gets your juices flowing. It's the ultimate badass way to score modern action films. I have to say that this M:I theme is the first one to grab me this way. It really rocks your socks, before I had always thought that the theme melody was nice but never had I imagined it could be this, well, Badass! And when you keep in mind that the film is directed by John Woo, it's all the more suitable. Lisa Gerrard is featured here again (familiar from the Gladiator score) Her voice is quite suitable for setting the mood for the particular scenes in which the tracks play. Very similar "singing" to Gladiator, If you didn't know better, you could almost think that Zmmer used the same recordings. The good old choir is not that present as in "The Rock" or "Crimson Tide". but it's in there, in the back. And there is one FABULOUS choir piece in there, (Track 10, details below) As an avid Zimmer fan, I must say I enjoy this score very much.
And now for a more in-depth look at the score release:
Track 1. Hijack. This track starts with a very interesting sound with a kind of mysterious feel. There is also the familiar choir in the background. A steady bass beat starts to builds up to the climax when the distorted guitars kick in, a very memorable bit. Very cool electric guitar playing.
Track 2. "Iko-Iko". Well, what can you say about this. It is a peculiar "funny song".

Mission: Impossible 2 has to be the best hard-driven action score so far this year. Hans Zimmer pulls out ALL the stops and takes its listener on a ride that will want to be repeated many times over.
I find myself frequently listening to track 9, "Injection," which alone has to be one of Zimmer's best cues this year. Compared to the so-so regime of scores being released lately, Zimmer's score is fun and refreshing. Hans Zimmer's style is apparent in this one, though the techno/heavy guitar influences are *very* new to the Zimmer soundscape in terms of how he uses them. This is definitely not "The Rock" or "The Peacemaker," though it's just as fast and furious.
Zimmer's use of Schifrin's theme is quite engaging. I wouldn't bother comparing it to Elfman's attempt, as the scores are quite different - and Elfman *did* do some noteable work. For me, M:I 2 surfaces as the better of the two.
Many of the "Gladiator" vocals appear on this disc, which compliment the atmosphere being created. Although Lisa Gerrard is not directly credited for her perfomance (which is still questionable), it's a pretty safe assumption that it is her voice that is heard throughout the score.
One interesting observation - the cue, "Seville" (track 3) is the song album's score cut "Nyah" ... with a different twist. The cue heard on the score album runs 4 minutes and 30 seconds, though in more of a raw, less electronic rendition. It seems as if Zimmer spruced up the cue for the song album, which has a bolder guitar performance, heavier percussion, and of course, the added male vocals. The cue heard on the score cd is nice, though I prefer the album version.

NOTE: Before purchasing this score, see the movie first, or else the music won't make any sense. This is not classical music.
This is another wonderful musical score by Hans Zimmer, one of the essential contributers to soundtrack-scores. This is a pretty darn good album.
TRACKS:
1-Hijack- An interesting opener to the album. Very sophistocated. 2-Iko-Iko- A very upbeat song. Believe me; it will grow on you. 3-Seville-The best of three flamenco tracks. I find the tap dancing in the backround really neat. 4-Nyah-Another flamenco track. Best to be listened to in a quiet room. 5-M:I Theme- A pretty hard rendition of Lalo Schifrin's original theme song. I personally think that Limp Bizkit's version on the soundtrack is better. Good effort, though. 6-The Heist- Starts out as a powerful flamenco track. Turns into a good groove near the end. 7-Ambrose- A good effort of mixing very heavy orchestral strings with the electronic world. 8-Bio-Techno- Only satisfactory. The album could of done just as good without it. 9-Injection- The best track on the album. It really fits into the injection scene in the film. Very emotional, if you've seen the movie. 10-Bare Island- A very heavy track. Sonds like something that would come out of a Mortal Kombat movie. Bravo!
Not enough room to explain the others, but they are very well worked out!

When I first bought the first soundtrack, I expected to be impressed by the variety of songs, just as I was when I bought the soundtrack for the first Mission: Impossible film. You know, a little bit of Bjork, Danny Elfman, and some Massive Attack. Yes, I had read the back of the CD; yes, I bought the CD anyway; yes, I was pretty disappointed by Limp Bizkit and Metallica. Although I am sure they are talented in their own ways, their music is not my cup of tea. However, since I'm an ardent fan of M:I, I bought it anyway, hoping to hear some great scores somewhere. Nope. But I bought this second soundtrack - oh, joy! Thank God this CD was released for those who really care about musical scores! Although the soundtracks that contain "inspired by the movie" songs are sporadically delectable, sometimes one has to appreciate music sans the proverbial rock star screams and the unfamiliar, this-wasn't-in-the-film-but-please-indulge-me-anyway melodies. Usually, soundtracks don't grab me in their entirety. Rather, I find a couple of memorable songs that I like. Not in the case of Mission: Impossible 2, The Score. I found myself liking virtually every song. Do you want to relive the movie? Buy this CD. Here's a review of my favourite tracks:
- # 1 Hijack: I did not listen to the song completely. I skipped over it more than once. After my first real listen, I loved it. The beginning is not particularly engaging, but it becomes very good after the 2:50 mark, and even better after the 3:15 mark, where Ambrose's theme comes in, thereby bringing the entire scene of the movie back to me. - # 2 Zap Mama "Iko-Iko": Quite an unusual choice of music for the rock-climbing scene, but I really like this song now. It is fun, upbeat, and carefree. Good song to dance to!
