Its funny that you just posted this, as I just saw Mission: Impossible Fallout yesterday (its as great as they say it is).
While watching the film, I noticed that Lorne Balfe prominently reuses a variation of a sub-theme from Elfman’s MI soundtrack. You really hear it during the climactic helicopter chase. Has anyone else noticed this?August 4, 2018 at 3:52 am #98674
Vinyl coming from Mondo October, 2018:
I think what you’re hearing is the Schifrin that Elfman worked into his own score?August 28, 2018 at 1:21 pm #98679

Are you sure you’re not thinking of “The Plot” — which is a secondary Schifrin theme for the original series that Elfman also alluded to in his score now and then? Balfe used that on several occasions.August 28, 2018 at 4:34 pm #98681
Yes, Ryan already pointed that out to me. Hadn’t listened to the score in FOREVER, but somehow that secondary theme by Schifrin stayed with me and I don’t think I ever heard it in any other MI movies. Or at least, not as prominently.August 28, 2018 at 7:48 pm #98682

Kraemer uses “The Plot” a bit in his ROGUE NATION score, e.g. “A400”, “Havana to Vienna”, “The Syndicate” and I think most prominently in “The Torus”.
Oh man. Elfman’s M:I score is securely in my top three all time favorites given the pure sonic invention and percussive density. I remember my jaw dropping in the theater hearing “Red Handed”, “The Heist” and the whole end train sequence for the first time. Over the years tracks like “Max Found”, “Mole Hunt” and “Betrayal” have really grown on me as prime examples of subtle psychic manipulation. Can’t wait for the expanded release (and hopefully Mike Matessino’s keen restorative work and liner notes)!August 31, 2018 at 11:29 am #98683
So, hem, it may not be the Lalaland release but something interesting appeared online…September 19, 2018 at 12:39 am #98687
Isn’t that how it always works? 😉September 20, 2018 at 7:16 am #98688
Well yes, complete scores tend to be bootlegs for a long time before getting a proper release but in this case, the structure and content really looks like the one from an official release. I really hope it’s not actually Lalaland’s work that leaked months before the release.
I’ll buy it anyway of course. Gotta keep on the collection…
