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 sessionsI 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..... lol

Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me too
Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.

extraordinary score that contain no principal theme but so many of incredible musics typically from hans imagination.
one negative comment : he was too inspired from the music of the movies king arthur, last samurai (that he composed the music) and the time machine (by klaus badelt). some of chords was as same as in king arthur...

this score is absolutely brilliant. the way he captures the spirit of each moment of the movie is breathtaking. his use of somewhat unusual percussion instuments really stresses the pirate mood as well as different instument combinations. i particularly love the opening chant as well as "up is down". although very different styles, both use the brass section in an awe inspiring way. i want to meet the brass section and shake each of their hands. im a trumpet player and aspiring composer so im trying to focus on the entire musical spectrum, but i LOVE the sound of a powerhouse brass section. not only was the section pure power, but mr zimmer did an amazing job featuring it. this score is absolute genius definitely one of best and most exciting i have ever heard. someday i hope to be half the composer mr zimmer is. he is one of the greatest and most versitile composers who ever lived. i will continue to learn from and admire him.

I'm curious. Was "Hoist the Colors" inspired by research into authentic pirate folk lore and music. It's a very haunting melody and reminds me of some of the modal themes that musicologists link to that region and time period.

It would have been cool if on the soundtrack he put the tune when bootstrap stabs will chest and when jack saves elizabeth

Man, all I can say is that I hope there's an isolated score track on the DVD. That bit that sounds like a children's choir at the very climax just melts me. Why wasn't it on the CD? Awesome music. Literally awe-some.

Up is Down. 2:42 of heaven. It has skyrocketed to the top of my ipod (other mp3 players are available) 25 most played tracks. I can't help but smile every time I hear it & it fits perfectly with the scene in the movie. Worlds End is the best score listening expierance I have had in years.

I love it. The best score of the trilogy. Hans you are one of the best composer of the History. Your music is my life. 10/10

Ingo reply Replies: 0 || 2007-06-08 00:00:00
Hans you are the graetest. This is the best score from the caribian triologie. But the track number 8 is stolen from Ennio Moricons "The man with the harmonica"
But I forgive you, because the track is really great and I know that Ennio is your inspiration.

Bewitchingly sublime....
My favorite part of this score is probably when you layered the "Love theme" on top of the spirited ostinato, heard in the "Up is Down" cue, at 2' 47" in "Drink Up Me Hearties". The first time that I listened it, I just sat, astonished by what I was hearing. I am amazed by your ability to write such versatile melodies. To develop two themes that are of totally different semblance and then fuse them together to form the rhapsodic chef-d'oeuvre that we all advocate. You are truly an inspiration to us aspiring composers.
Keep up the great work!

"But i was a bit disappointed, when i haven't found one music theme on it. For those, who already have seen the film: it's the one that plays at the moment when Bill cuts Will's heart (starts from the choir) and continues when Jack flyes on the parachute."

I really want this theme too!! However, I can't find it on the soundtrack either, so I guess that means its probably not on there! :(

I agree with phillip below. how can you rate how music sounds if your deaf. you must be deaf if you insult and complain about zimmer's music especially this soundtrack. this soundtrack was marvelous. one of your strongest usages of brass instruments ive ever heard. your compositions always leave me at awe. I dont think now is the best time I feel is by far the best track on the cd. thanx for another great movie score hans.
