I still dont see what the fuss is about. You all pretty much know how much (or little rather) of the score you are getting....At best you could probably spend 5 bucks on half this album on Itunes instead of 10 or 15 (by taking out the remixes)
so i dont see the big deal here...Might as well wait for it and toss the pennies its worth to the man - we all got gyped anyway! Hopefully enough people will noy buy the remixes and send them a message - NO MORE REMIXES/FILLER ON SCORE ALBUMS!!!
Oh FYI to add to Sean's query....Considering we now know that Hans is using a trumpet player from the Rango score, and he is using Spanish guitaristas, I'm thinking (and to my horror dreading) that this score is going to sound comparable to Silvestri's "The Mexican" score, but with the Jack Sparrow beat....which I really hope it doesn't. That just doesn't seem to blend well......but thats just me.
Rodrigo y Gabriela are amazing. Check out their stuff. It'll fit the movie especially since about the fountain of youth.
Anybody seen the clip from the film where Jack escapes, anyway its got a great memorable piece that of course wont have made the album, I can't believe how this one is taken up with over 30mins of just terrible sounding remixes.
Mickey style !
I saw it over a thousand times yesterday and was so mezmerized by the music. It sounded so much of the first track "Guilty of Being Innoncent of Being Jack Sparrow" *shrugs*
I noticed that if you split the name into two it says:
"Guilty of Being Innoncent" "Innoncent of Being Jack Sparrow"
I just thought that was cool; something Jack would definitely say to confuse anyone. :)
that is, are you saying that is not in the cd ?? but when jack runs track, is in the cd ??
I believe it is in track one, love. It sounds similar...
thanks eva, you are how angelica ... full of news xD Marco Antonio
@MArco What do you mean by that?...she asks nicely. :)
Eva'm just saying that you are full of news! ù.ù

Thank you, love, I do research A LOT on my free time!  If there is anything else you need, just ask!
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides soundtrack is fresh, unique, ethereal, and very different than the other three because of the Hispanic vibe Rodrigo y Gabriela give it. Being Hispanic myself, and Gypsy, I utterly and completely love this album because it takes away all the old and brings in a new tone for our mundane lives. My absolute favorite track thus far is "Angelica", but it most likely will change once I buy the album on iTunes. The guitar in that track is just mezmerizing and being a writer I enjoy visualizing my own scenes with Captain Jack, and I most definitely see him dancing away with some exotic nomad...just saying. Anyway, as for the remixes, I believe they are great to my ears, considering I truly don't like techno, but giving these a try I came to disagree with my last comment. This movie is supposedly a movie Johnny Depp wanted to make as a "thank you" to his admirers and because he feels like he owes us, for he believes that the last two had too many subplots and I sort of agree with him. Overall, this soundtrack is just a fresh start for what they are going to bring next in Pirates 5 and I think it's just absolutely breathtaking. We should appreciate Hans Zimmer for trying out new things....
yeah, in most things, what you've said I also agree...

and for the remixes ? :-|
I'd rather have 7 remixes with the score than 45 minutes of score and no remixes.
I agree with you for the most part, Evangeline. Rodrigo y Gabriela are great, and I hope they work well in the film. What I'm disappointed about is that (as far as I've heard from the samples) Rodrigo y Gabriela's tracks aren't more incorporated with Zimmer's style. The final track, for example, blends them together and sounds excellent.
As it is, we get about 30 minutes of classic Zimmer Pirates score and 15 minutes of RyG tracks that could just as well be extras from their album 11:11. Good stuff, but not as Pirate-y as it could've been. Disappointing. :/
@ Feliz Lombriz
I suggest you listen to the full song Angelica: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8DCWrhn4N0
it's much better as just the preview, and especially near the end it gets real Zimmery. Don't give up hope ;)
Well...we are all intitled to our own opinion. I'm just someone who enjoys differences. Can May 17 come any slower? I can't wait to get this album!
I wish I could agree with most of the folks who are 100% interested with this score, and I understand it if Zimmer wanted to kind of take a back seat on this one since its his 4th ride and gets others to flesh out the score for him (i admit the man really broke his back with part 3 - that was just too epic)
but sorry...a cd with only 40 minutes of score - nay - try 20 of score and 20 of solor guitar pieces - this doesn't exactly do it for me.
All I can say is I hope Itunes has a single song purchase option, because im not wasting my money on all those other tracks and remixes....
I think, with PotC2-3 everything is said (=composed) about pirates. Now, he only could give it a new direction (spanish elements), but it would have been a mistake, if he tried to make the last one (PotC3) better. So, the score only could get worse than the former ones, because we have been spoiled!
Thats exactly the problem - that Hans perhaps thought that parts 2 and 3 were pretty much it for him. Therefore he's really got nothing to add to this, and I can see. Outside of maybe Blackbeard's theme, the rest pretty much sounds like rehashes of old themes.
But that doesn't bother me. Nor does Rodrigo and Gabriel doing their thing during one of his score tracks.
Its the fact that they have 4 minute suites of solos while Zimmer gets 2 minute cues at best. The rest are Dj remixes of said tracks.
Indeed - these are BAD remixes too. One could argue that Tiësto's remix was bearable, but these... It's like they said 'dudes, we need additional cheap 30 minutes, you've got 1 hour'.
Ugh, Tiesto was in no way bearable.
Who wants remixes when they buy a soundtrack? Does disney think it's more kid friendly or something? I can tell you they aren't going to be making more money with remixes. Complete or near complete scores would be more acceptable as 18 tracks than this garbage we're getting. I mean the score itself will be alright, but half of this is just crap we won't even hear in the film.
I'm not buying this abomination of an album no matter what. The score is fine, I even like all the guitar work, but 30 mins of friggin remixes? REALLY?! I honestly hope this wasn't Hans' decision, because if he doesn't accept the fact that this is an atrocity, a total gang rape of an otherwise (hopefully) enjoyable score album, then I'm seriously losing respect for the guy. Sheesh, and I thought Tiesto's 'creation' for Dead Man's Chest was already too much...
Disney wanted remixes. I hope they'll learn it's a HUGE mistake and won't give us this crap next time.
Can only hope that they come up with a Deluxe Edition or something with more score, like TRON Legacy had. There's almost certain to be a ton of amazing action music missing here. Apart from that, I like what I heard of the clips. "He's A Pirate" with guitar flavouring is especially cool.
Amazon and iTunes samples combined, and uploaded in GOOD quality:
My thoughts incidently... I actually quite like the new Spanish pieces. They were quite a surprise, but I think they'll grow on people after a while.
My favorite tracks though are the Hans Zimmer stuff. Palm Tree Escape is probably my favorite, I really wasn't expecting it to build into the DMC Jack theme. Took me by surprise, but in a good way.
The score overall from what I've heard reminds me a lot of the first and second movies. I think the action music has the wild energy and fun of the first.
The first remix is sorta catchy, the rest are forgettable.
Much better, you're recordings. Thanks! Hearing the 2 previews combined makes it alot better! And indeed, the RyG parts sound better and better every time I hear them. It's new, getting used to it. Though there must be ALOT of music in the movie we can't hear on a cd. Hopefully Hans will release a gigantic full recordings cd of all the potc's.
highly unlikely but could there be a chance, since this version only has 15 tracks, and is slightly out of order: http://www .amazon.de/Pirates-Caribbean-Stranger-Hans-Zimmer/dp/B004R2H GOA/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_4]Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: Hans Zimmer: Amazon.de: Musik I'd like to think that maybe this is another edition where we get more of the score, I doubt it, but it would make some sense why there'd be 2 versions o.O
Hey guys, I also believe that seven remixes are nothing but waste of cd space. one question...did Rodrigo y Gabriella write three cues on their own or are they just credited as performers. There are different lists on the net.... thanks in advance!!!
Listened to the samples. Yeah, expectations for this release just plummeted. We can't hear enough of Zimmer's score to really judge yet, but I did some math: -34 minutes of remix to 45 minutes of original score. -If you don't include the solo tracks by Rodrigo y Gabriella it becomes less than 30 minutes of original score.
4 more minutes of remix than original score. Those better be good remixes.
Where are these samples exactly ?
Alex, check Amazon.de:
Feliz, you want it or not, the Rodrigo y Gabriela stuff are part of the score ! ;)
but let us wait for the full songs...
i don't like it either... same themes just recycled (like in "Rango").
As Evenstar said, it's seem to be recycle of Rango, and previous pirates. And 45minutes of soundtrack it's a shame, especially followed by those hawfull remixes.
You don't know if there are "solo tracks by Rodrigo&Gabriela", 30sec preview isn't representative of 5min music!
Yes, they are solo tracks by Rodrigo y Gabriela. It doesn't say they were made by Hans Zimmer & Rodrigo y Gabriela, just their names.
The pieces Hans made and made with RyG are the best. So far the solo's don't seem very promising. The Remixes are the worst thing in the world.
Im going to have to agree with Pete Postlethwaite on this one..."I was diss...dissa...dissapointed!"...
...But I am willing to bet all the potentially great thematic stuff will be in the film and NOT on the soundtrack...(sad face)
Dissapointed indeed. The tracks form Hans are awesome, but almost everything is re-used from the earlier tracks, only played with different instruments. 'Mermaids' is cool, with that small AWE theme re-used. 'Blackbeard' is not that thematic (as Davy Jones for example), but the instruments you hear give it a nice touch. 'On Stranger Tides' not much thematic also, but again the way it is performed makes it beautiful. The Rodrigo y Gabriela tracks don't seem to be very thematic and only filling things up, not excited. I coudln't even finish the remixes so bad. I really hope they posted the worst 30 secons, and everything else is awesome. High hopes, low expectations.
