It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.<br>=======================<br><br><br>Well said! <br><br>Agreed.I've demanded for it to be removed a long time ago... Maybe in 10 years, who knows...RIP to a legend....<br><br>Just rewatched Coach Carter a few weeks back. It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.Listening to Rabin's two powerful "basketball scores" - this one and Glory Road. In memory of the great Kobe! RIP, legend!Honestly man, I never understood this site's ratings either.
For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessions
I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know

Could you post the whole link to it ?. I tried to highlight the link, and then i right clicked it, to use a webrowser to to get to it, and it didn't work, because the whole website link was not there.

I know by the use of Spanish guitars and trumpets theyre going for a Spanish-styled score (if not simply a subtheme by itself apart from the main themes, of course). All I'm saying is if Zimmer uses it in the main theme it's gonna be a completely different sound than what we've been used to, I'm thinking.

A subtheme sounds like the better bet, but considering the Fountain of Youth has always been a Spanish tale, like Michael mentioned earlier the theme of the Fountain may take precedence over the film as a main theme in which case yer lookin at trumpets a blazin in this score, which right now reminds me of Rango and the Mexican...

I know Zimmer isn't gonna cop out on his previous themes as before, so we'll see what he does. for all I know he's probably intending its use ala the Sinagpore theme in part 3 - it didn't cover the whole score. All I'm saying is we never had solo trumpets in the previous versions, so I'm hoping he doesn't go balls-out with its use throughout the score.

And i dont see why people come on here to get upset about the ones who offer "complaints". If it wasn't for these so called whiners, we wouldnt be having much of a conversation and we'd all sittin around waiting....So at least we got something to talk about while we wait.

Aint dat always da way tho? Expected released date of CD is already known, but because tracklist always finds its way online early people get it in their heads there's an actual "tracklisting release date". No...Sorry...If there is one, it's a private company affair and doesn't correspond with anyone else...In oder words - they release it when they release it.

So jus chill....thats always da best medicine. Besides, I heard this new score gonna have TRUMPET in it now....Trumpet? Ehhh.......What the hell, man!

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
@karloff
Hmmmm, Trumpets you say ?, that sounds pretty intense for Pirates of the Caribbean music, wouldn't you say so ? . It'll be interest to hear what the music will sound like, and what it will be like overall ! . At least we don't have to wait too long for the soundtrack to come out, considering it comes out on May 17th in about a month from now. Do you have any guesses on what the titles of the songs with be on the Pirates 4 soundtrack ? , i bet they will be some interesting titles for each of them on there. Also, i wonder how many songs with be on there.

karloff reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
yes..trumpets my good man....I have no idea....The only reason I can think of is because of the whole Spanish Conquistador angle regarding the Fountain of Youth, which was (correct me if im wrong) linked up with the adventures of Ponce de Leon in the 1600s in Florida....

Funny thing is I pictured Floridian Native Indians (Seminoles) being in the score mix and not so much pirates and spaniards, but whatever...Based on where the fountain of youth is supposedly located is inland Florida...aka the Everglades......if anyone's ever tasted Everglades water it is fairly sweet.....which is probably where the legend began.


At any rate, I just hope Zimmer doesnt get too bombastic with the trumpets...This isnt Rango....

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
I don't think Hans Zimer would go to far with the Trumpets in Pirates 4's music. I don't think he would would over do it with this movies soundtrack (the music) . Plus, Rango and Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger tides are two different movies, so i'm sure it'll turn out just fine. I doubt that any of the songs would sound the same, when comparing Pirates 4 and Rango's music.

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Don't see what's wrong with the trumpet. It's a great instrument. Combined with the spanish guitars and some classy Zimmer themes it will sound great (as it always does).

and sandoval is a wonderful artist and great trumpet player. I'm so thrilled he's going to be playing on this. Can't wait.

karloff reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Well, by the musicians he is gathering for this score it sounds like he's going for a Spanish-styled theme (or subtheme, perhaps), and thats not very far away from your standard Mexican theme...

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
I still don't see the problem. Come on guys, Hans Zimmer and Pirates of the Caribbean standing together... it is proved to be a great combination.. so it will sound awesome no matter what instrument he uses and combines.

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Yeah, no trumpets please, that would be downright insulting. Y'know what, let's not have any traditional live instruments at all, just to make sure. Just have a rock band perform the whole thing. Jesus H. Christ.

@Peter
Yes, i think you are right. Plus, that could be a great sound for Pirates 4 's music, if it does turn out to be that way.

Peter reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
You guys should realise that trumpets actually BELONG in a real pirate score. Maybe that's what Hans is aiming for, a more traditional swashbuckling score.

Are you really discussin about Trumpets? it's one of my less favourite instruments but...for the love of God!

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
By the way... where is the confirmation of the trumpets being used, you worry about? And it won't be the main theme I think. Spain is a small theme in the story. Queen Anne's Revenge Blackbeard, Jack & Angelica), England (Barbossa & King George) and Spain (King Ferdinand & The Spaniard) hunt the Fountain. I assume you'll only hear the Spanish theme(s) and sounds when Spain is on screen and it's characters are interacting with the other characters. I figure the main theme will be the one of the Fountain since that's the thing driving the story. Like the Love theme in At World's End was THE main theme for the journey too. Ah well.. we'll hear soon enough. Don't worry.

Yes, Hans Zimmer certainy does seem to be a great combination, meaning Hans Zimmer and the Pirates of the Caribbean music he's done with Pirates 1, 2 and 3, and also likely will be good with Pirates 4's music as well.

@Sean

I know this game.....

First the tracklisting, then the track samples, then the cd itself, then before you know it comes the incessant clamoring for bootleg/DVD ripped copies of the score, or for Zimmer to release his own Expanded edition/exclusive tracks sold on Itunes...One thing leads to another. lol

It never ends, so you might as well just wait it out, man. Seriously. Take my advice and enjoy Rango and Your Highness, which Im doing now. Your Higness especially - it's comparable with the Pirates score because it's so jaunty at times. Cheers.

I like listening to the music only from the soundtrack on cd, i don't use bootleg dvds,dvd ripped copies of the score, or the expanded edition/exclusive tracks, or itunes, etc. I know that the soundtrack of Pirates 4 comes out May 17th, so i am okay with waiting it out for it to be released, but it would be nice to see what the names of the songs are on the soundtrack tracklisting from it at least. Honestly, what you said about the Pirates music, compare to the Rango movie, and Your Highness, the Pirates of the Caribbean music is the best one, meaning the music from all three movies, and i'm sure it will be very very good music in Pirates 4 as well.

Sean get over and wait. Everyone else here is massively anticipating the tracklisting, but you don't see everyone else spamming the comments with 'I wish tracklistings was on here noww!!!'. Grow up and learn to have patience. Seriously, stop being such a damn kid. No one here want's to see you spamming I WANT TRACKLISTINGS NOW. I don't care what your reasons are.

No, sorry but i will not shut up, if you're going to start telling me to shut up, then i'm going to tell you the exact same thing back to you, which of course is to shut up. So, telling me that, isn't going to get you or anyone else anywhere and it certainly isn't to solve anything so think again there. Also, no i am not a troll, i am just a big fan of this movie franchise, that's all.

I am wondering about the same thing, regarding Blackbeards theme on the soundtrack.
