5.0 out of 5 stars The Lone Ranger - Original Score July 2, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
"The Longer Ranger" is an absolute delight to listen to and is certainly one of the best soundtracks of the year so far. There's a nice blend of melody, drama, and intensity. There are some unique instruments and vocals used in the score, which clearly have both western and Native American influences. In particular, the first two tracks on the album are very effective in placing the listener in the appropriate time and place.

One thing that's great about this album is that the music is given a chance to develop. This is becoming a rarity on film scores - too often a track is over just when you're starting to get interested. On "The Lone Ranger", the music has plenty of time to build (and sometimes shift in tone or intensity), creating a more complete experience. There is only one track that is shorter than three minutes in length, and quite a few that go 4+ minutes in length.

For those that are wondering about the original Lone Ranger TV theme (William Tell Overture by Rossini), fortunately it makes an appearance in this soundtrack during the cue titled "Finale" [Track 10].

Composer Hans Zimmer also scored this summer's "Man of Steel" - I liked that score a lot, but I found "The Lone Ranger" soundtrack to be a better overall listening experience. Zimmer is a frequent collaborator with director Gore Verbinski; and he has done some of his great work on Mr. Verbinski's films (including "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Rango") - and now you can add "The Lone Ranger" to the list.

[4] Ride

4.0 out of 5 stars Hiyo Silver! July 9, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
The character of The Lone Ranger first appeared on WYXZ radio in Detroit, Michigan in 1933, the brainchild of station owner George Trendle and writer Fran Striker. Over the course of the next 70 years the character appeared in almost 3,000 radio shows, countless books and comics, in a much-loved 1950s TV series starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, and in several theatrical movies, the most of recent of which - The Legend of the Lone Ranger - was released in 1981. Following the adventures of a former Texas ranger, morally forthright and unfailingly just, battling bad guys in the Wild West with the aid of his trusty Indian guide Tonto and his horse Silver, The Lone Ranger was massively popular during the early part of the 20s century, but has become something of an old fashioned cliché in recent years, despite numerous attempts to resurrect the character for modern audiences. Sadly, Disney's $250 million blockbuster seems to be following the trend on the back of appalling reviews and disappointing box office returns, possibly consigning the masked man to the annals of history forever.

The film is made by the majority of the creative team behind the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and stars Armie Hammer as John Reid, a morally upright lawyer who is on a train traveling to rural Texas circa 1869 to take up a job as the local district attorney. The railroad is coming through, and Reid is seen to be part of the onset of `civilization' in this part of the Wild West. Also on the train is convicted murderer Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner), on his way to be executed, and a mysterious and slightly peculiar Comanche Native American named Tonto (Johnny Depp), whose presence on the train is unclear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous July 3, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
The movie was great and Hans' music made it even better! I was extremely pleased when I was informed that Jack White dropped out of the project. We all know how big of a disaster that would have turned out to be! Here, Zimmer's on his A-game. The whole 2 and a half hours watching the movie you are accompanied by the epic tunes of Mr. Zimmer. You have to see the movie to get a true understanding of how well the music correlates with the film. It's an epic western style score with Native American esque tunes thrown in. Brilliant in every sense of the word! Check it out and you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun Zimmer score July 7, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Greetings

I am not a western fan and the latest Zimmer scores have not been his best work. But that changes today. This is a fun and exciting score. The Finale is a masterpiece of mixing the William Tell music with modern scoring. Fun Fun Fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent score by Hans Zimmer! July 2, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
"The Lone Ranger" is a great score; a bit different than I expected it to be - but in a good way.

I am very familiar with Hans Zimmer's style and have a lot of the soundtracks he has written over a good range of years in my collection. Having seen the previews for "The Lone Ranger" I expected Mr. Zimmer's usual aggressive and bombastic style to be the majority of what I would find here; I also expected somewhat of a stereotypical "western" flavor to be in the score, and there is, but it matches the film's environment, so there are no problems there.

Sure enough, there are plenty of good, aggressive, rousing-action moments in "The Lone Ranger" score...what I was not expecting were the excellently-composed tender moments that arose at various places.

This soundtrack is very solid and takes you all over the emotional spectrum; the action writing is very well done, as is typical in Hans Zimmer's work, but the sweeping lyrical moments are going to become my favorite aspects of this score.

Another reviewer mentioned enjoying the score to "The Lone Ranger" overall more than the recent "Man of Steel" score, also done by Hans Zimmer - I agree; overall "The Lone Ranger" is a stronger musical experience, though I did enjoy the "Man of Steel" score also. A number of the tracks in "The Lone Ranger" really engage you emotionally, as good music should.

I'm looking forward to seeing how "The Lone Ranger" film turns out overall. Having listened through the soundtrack without the benefit of the accompanying scenes for which the music was written, I expect the listening experience will only grow sweeter and richer as I can match the visual aspects of the film with the aural aspects of the score.

Well done, once again, Mr. Zimmer!
