GITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhereI think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.
Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?
Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.
A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :p

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)
