To me, it's overly dark and dramatic.
The drum part is so annoying and psychotic, I can not listen to it from the beginning to the end.
The passing car sound is overused.
It does not have a universal melody, just a pattern that repeats itself.

I'm not really sure when this new theme music is meant to be played. If it's to replace this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BJx_ll01fU

Then in my opinion it's far too long, also it sounds way too much like a movie soundtrack which I suppose seeing as that is what the guy who wrote it is famous for then I'm not surprised but it doesn't seem to fit F1 at all, apart from having sound random noises that sound vaguely like an F1 car.

Yes.
It is to replace the music you linked too.

I have a feeling that this will be used in full. They will show the ident. And then immediately go to the grid sequence. It's basically a sound bed that the commentators will talk over to announce grid. It is very American and NASCAR or champ car esq.
If I have time and can find one to demonstrate what I'm on about I'll post what I mean when I finish work

Edit.
If you are familiar with 5 live. They door when the cars are leabingbthe grid for the formation lap.
If you watched sky f1s first 2 races in 2012. They also had a track bed that they talked over on the formation lap.
I suspect that it is the same as that. Buy used just before the formation lap. Or at the formation lap.

It doesn't even need to go to the grid: the typical thing with American broadcasts is indeed to play the intro music, then fade it once the announcers start talking. It could be over some establishing shots of the city, or the drivers getting into their cars, etc. - doesn't really matter what. They play the first few seconds at full volume alone, then show some sort of graphic as it fades and the announcers start talking, and at some point after that it either cuts or finishes. But it certainly won't be that the whole 3 minutes plays before any coverage appears, like a traditional full intro.

There was an interesting (worrying?) conversation about the theme tune on the F1 Word last night https://youtu.be/OB1JF2PX92w?t=933 involving its use during the race. Have a listen and see what you think. One of the sources they reference i think is this tweet https://twitter.com/Fitcho_/status/976283657076858881

It all sounds plausible but i have heard nothing official

How about they stop the race for 3 minutes while this music plays!

I'm not opposed to new music, I don't really care about that. But playing it over the first three minutes of the race?

What if there's a crash at turn one and the safety car comes out? It'll look and sound ridiculous.

Save it for the highlights, social media, post-race posts.

I believe this music is influenced by Game of Thrones.

I've never seen a single episode, and don't plan to. I can only hope it is better than its music, if this is anything to go by.

I feel Limited Slip by Hank Marvin would have done a far better job. But I'm biased, being a boy from when he was king.

Watch it, debatably drops in quality as time goes on and they surpassed the books but the first 3 seasons at least are must watch IMO. The theme song is also in a different league to this generic, bland rubbish :-P

Thanks, but I still haven't finished watching all the Shakespeare plays yet. Clearly I'm hopeless at "musts". ;-)

Right now I've heard it's practical use, it's bland and not uplifting, you can't beat a classic rock guitar riff like the BBC's F1 "The Chain" and the BBC's Top of the Pops "Whole Lotta Love", it just sounds corporate and boring.

Saw it backed up with footage this morning. Actually thought it worked well. Pretty dramatic, but why the hell not.

Brian Tyler was commissioned to write the music. He was heavily influenced by Gustav Holst's epic piece, The Planets. But Holst's work has been a massive influence in many soundtracks, from Lord of the Rings to Game of Thrones to Thor: The Dark World.

Liberty is going to change Formula One, and we should expect the same pattern from last season. All changes will come spaced out in time, never a huge bite the fans have trouble digesting.

That is pure nostalgia talking. There is nothing that objectively makes that good F1 music, and not having been exposed to it my whole life I don't think it is.

The old FOM intro to each session got me excited, almost nostalgic.

The new intro made me feel like I was watching Formula E with the House DJ (remember that tack from Season 1?)

Well at least it's dynamic and not just some kind of boring dirge.

I don't mind it. I'm not thrilled with it, but then, I can't even bring to mind what (if anything) we had in its place before in the US. Something significantly more fast-paced would've been preferable to me, but then if I were in charge of selecting the music, I'd probably pick some power metal or speed metal and then a bunch of people would hate that. :-P Can't please everyone.

I do find the whole new intro piece they added to be unnecessarily long, but it's at least not really annoyingly long. I've never been sure why long intros seem to be a fixture of US sports broadcasting; I fail to see the point of them. People presumably already know what they're watching.

It's not that bad.
Exactly what i thought would happen.

Music Stab and Ident into music bed.
Another words. They played the music that starts the world feed coverage. Then once the title has finnished. They played the music bed where crofty introduced the scene.

I'm someone who started getting into and enjoying nascar last year. So I'm kind of used too it already as I've watched 5 races races already this year. But for me. I think it worked.
How they do it during the race is a different matter. Will they do it for the grid before the formation lap or will they use it for the formation lap. Or loop the music. (It sounds like it could be looped to make the music longer.) And use it as a music bed for 7 minutes until just before the completion of the formation lap.


Anyone who doesn't like it. Sorry. Looks like this is the direction we are going in formula 1 now. We are going American now.

I've just noticed something and it's annoying the hell out of me now.
The bloody drone sound thing that happens when the screen switches from live to replay and replay back to live picture

Ok. I am ok with a little bit of americanisation. But even nascar does not annoy the hell out of me with the drone sound thing for replays. If anyone sees this from fom. Please drop that drone stab.

Objectively? It's music. It is always going to be subjective what people prefer. In my book, Fleetwood Mac had more talent in one finger than the composers and performers of the other pieces of music being considered here.

F1 Music? The bass line and build up of The Chain fit the anticipation and release of energy of the start of a Grand Prix spot on.

The new theme song sounds like a 1990s "news special" about the Gulf war is about to start, just change the fake car sounds for jet fighters.

The only problem with The Chain as it would be seen as copying although I would totally vote for it given the choice.

Just seen the music on the intro to qually.

It's fine when on TV. I do watch a lot of NFL. And it kinda reminds me of watching that.

Comparisons to The Chain are pointless, this is for a different purpose.

It's atrocious and the worst sports theme I've ever heard and that's not me being dramatic either. On its own it's woeful but I wanted to hear it in context, and it is serviceable but crap.

Well, I certainly like the music, but it doesn't suit the purpose it is used for at all. Listening to a short clip just before handing over to the commentators is fine. But it continuing in the background while explaining the track, that music sounds far too dramatic and action film like to go with this. Hearing it every weekend like this over the whole song length will become tiresome IMO.

Its music for filling empty spaces in peoples heads. There are far more interesting and relevant things to be listing to then.

When I listened to it last night I kept expecting Johnny Depp to pop up doing his pirate Keith Richards impression! It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be during qualifying with the graphics, but it was still pretty crap!

A little too cliché in the attempt to get an epic / dramatic sound going. Whatever, don't really care. I do like specdecible's lyrics though.

At least it doesn't feature any V10 or V8 era engine sounds (I think). I find it vaguely amusing how many sponsors and advertisements still use those old engine sounds even though they (sadly) haven't had anything to do with F1 for almost 5 years now. But yeah, I think the new theme song sounds somehow like a cheap production. It's like something out of a B-grade game show. They could've at least have decent production.
