As with the previous Pirates films, and with a nod to its swashbuckling predecessors in the genre, music plays a central role in At World's End. The score features melodies filled with excitement and intrigue as befits the pirates' latest heroic journey. "Many of the sequences are designed as mini operas," explains director Gore Verbinski, "and I like to think of the music as internal to the storytelling rather than score."
Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer creates a number of new themes for the film. "I can't think of anyone else who could compose a simple, dirge-like pirate song, and then expand it into a stirring anthem in three-quarter time," says producer Jerry Bruckheimer, praising Zimmer. The Walt Disney Records soundtrack recording begins with this somber dirge, "Hoist the Colours," co-written by Zimmer and director Gore Verbinski (with lyrics by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio). Zimmer then invites the listener to continue the journey, this time eastward to "Singapore," a thematic track blending Chinese-influenced melodies with pirate attitude.
"We have flutes from all over the world. We have chimalon from Romania. We have banjos from America," reveals Zimmer. "There's an eclectic sort of landscape to the whole thing so it does feel more like a journey, like you're truly going to the end of the world and beyond."
Throughout his career, composer Hans Zimmer has proven himself a versatile composer. "There's seemingly no genre that Hans is incapable of writing for, whether the adventure and fantasy of Pirates, contemporary or historical drama, all with equal passion and skill", says Bruckheimer. "Among so many other accomplishments, Hans has really brought ethnic authenticity into the mainstream of film composition, such as the extraordinary African sounds he melded into films like The Lion King, The Power of One, and our own Black Hawk Down, or the Asian undertones for The Last Samurai."
Walt Disney Pictures, in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Films, presents Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End in theaters on May 25, 2007. The Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End Original Soundtrack will be available May 22, 2007 at a suggested price of $18.98 wherever music is sold.

Zimmer is a genius. This score is possibly one of the best i've ever heard, running alongside Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings! It has a perfect way of expressing the film's emotions, and the score give's extra impact to the incredibly moving film.
It's so long wait for the cover release, the trak listening...and Finally Buy (Or not buy ) the score!!!!
Anyway, I hope this score will be better than dead man's chest, wich after the first 2 tracks was really boring.Judging for the track titles this time seems more an score than an album, and that's a good thing!
I can't wait to listen "I don't think this is the best moment" and "one Day", for the titles the climax of the movie.
hehehe. Expectations are high Hans. But I'm sure you'll deliver as always. I just hope that "Drink Up Me Hearties" is a score cue, not yet another non-score, inspired piece of... err... well... song... !!
