Guys are you serious ? I’m currently reading comments about how Modern Warfare 2 is in the score. In Bad Boys for Life you can heard firstly  : The Rock, Speed, Bad Boys, ... MW2 is just a reharsch of these score instead with some Black Hawk Down soundscape. Have you heard any MV score post 2005? &#128517;As much as I think that the choice of movie Powell makes, which up till now have created amazing scores, I do wish we'd get more than 1 score of his every year. Even if the quality is like Solo or The Hidden WorldI actually don't know which I prefer. I guess nostalgia might be clouding my judgement, since the album version was the one used on the DVD menu. Both are still pretty good, nonetheless.Yeah no contest IMO, it's much more dynamic and more "Powell-y" compared to that Superman-style rhythm he uses in the album version and elsewhere in the score. Must have been a hasty last-minute redo or something to not show up on the album.The films Powell is currently choosing allow him to write much more interesting music than your average Marvel movie... ;)<br><br>Excited for Call of the Wild in a few weeks.
Does anyone know what the correct chronological tracklist for this would be?Honestly, i think i will be that few people who likes Lights Out. But his best horror score is A Cure for WellnessThat’s a cool choice, I’m hoping for something more like “It” and less like “Light’s Out”.Wallfisch has compose the score for The Invisible Man, another horror score for the best guy today for the jobPowell has his personal reasons, but I sincerely hope he comes around to do another superhero score again, especially for MARVEL since his style isn’t fit for the likes of DC as of now.
I like the film version of Bathroom Titles better.LOL!<br><br>He has had some experience with animated projects, I’m interested to hear him do more diverse projects like that.I will never understand when people can't stand people opinions and 'attack' them.<br><br>If some loves Trent Reznor (i hate the guy's music), is his opinion and i no one to say nothing about it.Bring on the remixes!LOL!!! You have no idea about film music<br>====================<br><br><br>It's his opinion, my friend.<br><br>And his opinion is equally as valid as the opinion of someone who thinks this score is the worst crap ever. Why? Because when it comes to appreciating art (movies, books, music...) it is all completely subjective. <br><br>I always use this example: I have two friends - educated, family men - who have seen The Godfather. One of them thinks it's one of the greatest movies ever, while the other one barely finished watching it. <br><br>At the end of the day, just because a group of people (film critics, film buffs, etc) proclaim that something is "good" or "bad" doesn't mean that it's automatically a holy statement that everyone should agree with. <br><br>We are all different :)<br><br>Cheers!
Judging by the clips of this movie, it will be a good choice.<br><br>I can't wait for this one, after seeing those clipsAccording to Film Music Reporter, Tom is also scoring Scoob!MMichaels LOL!!! You have no idea about film musicFantastic score by Balfe.Best action score writer to come from RCP since Powell for sure .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.

Does anyone else think that this score sounds uncannily like that of gladiator? Particularly in the later action scenes, I swear he's used exactly the same rhythms, and just changed a few of the notes. A lack of a main theme also makes this score a bit boring.

Well, I must say this is one of Zimmers best scores, but the remix is crap. But the rest of the score is great, but where is The East-Indian Tradecompanys theme? It's really good, but not on the CD. But anyway a better soundtrack is hard to find.

I dont know what the most of you are talking about. this score is great. sure its not like the first sountrack but hans has fit himself to the situations in the movie and he did a great job on this score. listen to it a few times and you will understand how great this score is. it have action, comedy style music, and a great ending music in hello beastie. what more do you need in a score? why to complaine when hans knows what hes doing and hes doing a great job =] 14 from israel great fan of you hans keep it that way!

CRAP!

What in the world? If you haven't bought this yet, save some money. Buy The Black Pearl score again. Trust me. What a wretchedly disappointing venture this has been. Zimmer's music is genreally good, and I might have liked this album had I not had POTC 1 to compare it to. Unfortunately, I didn't because I did. Should have stayed with Bidelt. In usual Zimmer style, he plays with the amazing themes that addicted me to the first score, but never really unleashes them in their full glory.

Then there's the remix.

I kid you not, I cried. It was that much of a disappointment. I sat through the whole darn cd thinking, "Surely the next track will be better.", and the familiar title of "He's a Pirate" almost gave me hope, in spite of the word remix on the end. Then I heard it.

Disgusting.

Today, Japanese Limited Edition was released by avex.
This edition is perfect !
It contains DVD interviewed with Hans Zimmer and eight kinds of remix "He's A Pirate".
I think if you are a Zimmer fan you must buy this edition.
In DVD, you can watch interview and recording session (0:07).

I like the way the track plays on the three base instincts: Fear, love and sadness. The Davy Jones theme in particular, depicts a man (?) torn apart by a failed relationship, and can really invoke sympathy and fear. The track "Tia Dalma" shows that the film is primarily a fantasy, incorportating many supernatural effects.

After just seeing the film i see what your music adds to movies and the cinema which is absolutely amazing!!! It creates an epic, funny, scary,and swashbuckling feel which coinsides with the movie well, (as all soundtracks should.) Good Job Mr.Zimmer!

I am currently a senior in highschool. I going to college for film composing and I just love listen to your music. But I want to know how exactly how does Hans come up with the words that the choir sings in some of his scores. For example the da vinci code what are they singing in Kyrie of madenglene( not sure hoow to spell sorry) or in the other songs that choir is used.

I won't complain about that score not sounding "piratey" or "swashbuckling", I think I'm open-minded and I don't care listening to electric guitar and techno bass samples in this score.
But there are several other problems :
- The score is boring. The first one was repetitive, this one has nothing really attractive that makes you want to listen to it again. Even if The Kraken is fun, it's always the same motifs, no construction, just big action filler... It reminds me things like Con Air from Rabin & Mancina : very basic and without much musical knowledge and experience. Even if Con Air had much more exciting moments. I'm still surprised Zimmer composed such a basic (in musical terms) score.
- No construction. For exemple, "Jack Sparrow" uses the same harmonics from beginning to end, and let you think you are listening the same track twice.
- Where is the main theme ? I didn't wanted to listen to the main theme over and over again like what happened in the first score. But hey, this is still a main theme and the small and weak variations on it are not enough to justify it as a main theme...
- The Batman Begins effect. I mean, so many tracks are dark and moody, while there are so many interesting cues from the movie not included on CD. Batman Begins CD had the same problem, it was too much about atmosphere setting. When you set an atmosphere, this is a way to make your explosive moments more effective. The explosive moments here are weak or too short (I don't refer to The Kraken here, which is the only effective action cue from the score).
- The temp tracks. Oh my god, the first score was so much about copying-pasting other Zimmer scores, why the second score had to sound the same way ? "The Kraken" uses motifs from Batman Begins and Black Hawn Down without shame. Davy Jones' theme is reminiscent of the General Mandible theme from Antz...

I must admit this score CD is probably the worst CD from Zimmer : at the beginning the score is weak and the track selection was baddly done, using mostly uninteresting music. I think it has the problem of many zimmer CDs : using only Zimmer's music. Sometimes, additionnal composers do great jobs, and should have their work included on the regular CDs (this is what was done on the first pirates CD).

Have a nice day folks !

The Soundtrack was great, however there was alot of music in the movie that I wished was in the soundtrack. :( Hopefully they will release a complete recording of Pirates II.

I just saw the second movie, which was pretty good. My only problem with it was the boring music on the cd(the dj tiesto song sucked). Hans I still think the first cd was the better out of the two. Also, in the third movie johnny depps dad will be keith richards, crazy!

Amazing score, but WHERE THE HELL IS THE MUSIC FROM THE MOVIE???


This movie had so much music that was not on the score... that is just not fair.


I listened intently, and the actual main theme is not in the soundtrack fully

There have been talks about Zimmer for years now, that he shows lack of creativity if it comes to scores like Madagascar, Batman Begins just to name a few.

Now mr. Zimmer is coming up with a rather unexpected score (since the famous main theme(s) are not easily found on this one) and a lot of people start compaining about his creativity?

Come on guys, he does his best and I'm sure I'm not the only one around here that can enjoy the simple cues from this score.

Just close your eyes, stop worrying and enjoy the music!

This is a OST, and as such it should compliment the movie. Without seeing the film and critiquing the music is in my opinion just wrong. I have seen the film, and the music fits quite well with it. Klaus Badelt's take was amazing in the original POTC, but seems to me as if HZ took over and added a bit more mature sound to it.

Just my take. Opinions are only of value to them who hold them.

Unfortunately, i have to say that i am disappointed about this score .. :( i have heard inexpressive score with some adaptet themes from first pirates (badelt) and no
new ones.. after scores like king arthur, batman begins and da vinci code are pirates 2 almost loser.. more attention next time HZ!! .... rating: 65/100

Just to have a complete credits, I thought HZ.com guys may like to add that though 'Two Hornpipes' was used in the movie, it is an unoriginal song composed by Skip Henderson.

from the start to the end, this soundtrack is Awesome and maybe better than the first. A great pleasure to listen again and again with Incredible themes. Can,t wait to hear this soundtrack with the movie !

Favorite for the moment :

Jack Sparrow (How can we found a better tracks that opened a cd liek that)
The Kraken (Great action, organ and all)
Dinner is Served ( WOW, just AMAZING)
Tia Dalma (the beginning is awesome)
Wheel of Fortune (WOW, all the best theme in the same tracks)
Hello Beasties (Great ending)
