yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>
Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?
i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>
Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?

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)
