Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.
Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.<br>I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.<br><br>Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on albumI can't imagine how someone likes Balfe's part over Richters. As you said Thomas, Richters work sounds more like suites, and Balfes work is written more to picture. BUT, it sounds to me also like a typical RCP-work with Hans. While Hans gives the direction with his suites and melodies, Balfe and co are adapting those suites to the specific scenes and writing some "new" stuff to fill any gap if there is any need of it, so they become additional composers in the credits.<br><br>And here, we have the same. Richter shows the direction and some cues are real intense and beautiful. Balfes parts sounding like a gap-filler. I don't want to talk bad about Balfe, he's a composing machine, but still i can't find anything remarkable on those parts and so i can't understand how Richters work hasn't been used but instead the more colorless cues from Balfes part :/<br><br>Again, don't feel insulted guys, it's just my sensationBalfe’s part is the best I think.<br>It also seems written to picture instead of just long suites.<br>My understanding is the Balfe wrote half of the score but the album doesn’t seem to represent that for some reason.
I really liked Richter’s score over balfesI listened Max Richter for years. He is the kind of select or minority composer who does his solo works and soundtrack for movies not so famous. <br>His solo works are really really good with quintet and piano and voice. "on the nature of daylight" is definitely the best. <br>His sountrack is not good as his solo, to be honest. I think "the Leftovers" (2014-2017, HBO series), "Miss Slaone" (2016) and "Mary Queen of Scots" (2019) are cool.<br>If you need some peaceful music for meditation or good sleep, listen to his work.Richter did his recording in january and june 2019. The Director himself is a fan of Richter, so the deadline and director are not the reason.<br>It seemed that producers were not satisfied with Richter's music and they wanted something new, that's why they got Lorne. It turned out Lorne brought a very limited new...@Cercei<br>Hybrid can definitely answer that best. Richter’s score is used (alongside Balfe’s material) as well as some source pieces. If I remember correctly it’s a mish-mash of the two.I do know that piece, it’s very pretty. I’ll check out his other works, thanks for the recommendation. In terms of minimalism I really am into Brian Eno at the moment. His “Music For Airports” and “The Lovely Bones” are excellent if you like more introspective music.
btw, you're saying Lorne recomposed and reworked the entire score. as i haven't seen the movie yet, did the producers end up with not using richters score for it at all and just used the score from Lorne?thanks for your information. but i actually don't understand why they have done that. i've heard now Lornes cues and Richters cues. all those cues from Lorne, they sound very similiar to that what Richter composed, but somehow with less melodies. And you really have to work hard to not use fewer melodies then Richter, as he's a minimalist at its best ^^ with that being said, i can't hear any groundbreaking differences from Lornes part, so what was their idea on hiring it and getting the same style of music, but in a more "light" version? :/i really admire Max Richters work, he isn't that new in this scene. his style is that repeating minimalism. maybe you've heard once the cue "on the nature of daylight" which was used a lot by many other movies. his last score which knocked me out was "Hostiles". such an emotional and intense score, you need to hear that, and probably see the movie as well (with Christian Bale). <br><br>Really surprised at this album, I’ve never really heard anything from Max Richter but I really like what he ended up writing for this score. It surprisingly flows well for a stand alone listen. It’s funny that the producers wanted a different approach, I think Richter nailed it.<br><br>Balfe’s contribution is excellent as well, I particularly like that repeating chord progression (which is starting to become one of his trademarks considering how many times he has used it). It’s disappointing that they didn’t include more of his contribution though, since he apparently rewrote the entire score.Lorne said in his Twitter, the first album for His Dark Materials come 3rd November, no date, for the moment, for the second album.

Hans Zimmer is amazing. This score is one of the best I've heard yet, I especially love 'Up is Down'. All of the pieces are so precise and they've worked so well in the film.
Keep up the excellent work Hans!

Is this score better then Gladiator or do I just like it better now cause its new? I love the second half of track 10.-, and really the whole cd.

Great Score!!! Another great from maestro. It's very zimmeresque and very enjoyable music. In my feeling it's much different then previous pirates scores and mostly there are new sea-epic themes. Two finale tracks are the best I think, but opening plain song Hoist the Colours also excellent as well as all score!!!!!!

Hey Everybody !
I'm French so don't focus on my language please ^^
I just want to know if some moment of the song "Singapor" come from the Music of the Pirates in EuropaPark in Germany. I live in Strasbourg so I often go there and I know that this place is very closed to Pirates of the Carribean in France. So I wonder if it can be possible that a piece of the german's music is use for this song.

I wasnt sure if I really wanted to buy this soundtrack after hearing the 30 second samples online. But after I saw the movie I went straight to the store and bought it. Now I need to buy Dead Mans Chest.

GO BUY THIS SOUNDTRACK. I just saw the movie last night and was blown away and wore out by the music. So much good stuff, and being a composer myself, to think of how much work and energy went into this score. I loved the Lion King type theme used in "What shall we fight for?" Gives you cold chills at parts. Probably one of his best scores.

The soundtrack is wonderful, thank you for it. 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.

Does anyone know the name of this track? ##### Thanks a lot.

In response to Mauro's review, I'd like to say a few things. 1) You obviously are ignorant of the matter of musical composition and production. In scoring music for film, a composer does not fully control what the score's "mood" is, but rather interprets it through use of different combinations of instruments, themes and variations. You cannot judge film music from the perspective of a listener because it was intended for a film audience, not just a soundtrack recording. 2) Your point of the bass ending out of key proves your ignorance as well. After Mr. Zimmer records the Hollywood orchestra performing his composition, he imports it all into a sequencer (AKA Mixer). He spiffs it up for the movie, etc. After all that, he has to edit down his music in order to fit onto a soundtrack CD. This "incorrect" pitch is not incorrect at all, it was obviously an edited transition that would have moved into another theme in his original suite. 3) Pauses are, again, coming from the fact that this is an edited version. Not many film composers include (usually) an entire suite on the first OST, and so pauses are inevitable. 4) Like I stated earlier, the mood is set by the movie, regardless if you find it to your taste or not. And Mr. Zimmer's incorporation of themes from the first movie is far from childish. In my opinion, had he not added these tid-bits of older melodies, the score would not have connected all three movies as one, which is what I believe Verbinski intended; I also would have been very disappointed. Regardless, this is one of Mr. Zimmer's masterworks and a harsh critique such as yours is inaccurate because you have no clue what you are talking about, whether it's music theory or composing for film.

well i'm in tears everytime i hear one day, hoist the colours, all of it! very reminiscent of his earlier work, which is just a good now as it was then. if he can't homage himself with flair why do it at all? just great! 5/5!!

@JT as mentioned many times in interviews, Klaus Badelt did NOT write most of the themes for the first one. Zimmer wrote about 90% of it but gave the "written by" credit to Klaus because he was involved with another project at that time (I guess it was Last Samurai). Zimmer would basically write all the themes in one night and then hand them over to Klaus to finish the score. Zimmer was credited as "score producer" on that movie.

Wow wow wow just incredible. I'm a fan of everything Hans does, but this is again a really outstanding score. I've watched the movie two times already and the music is absolutely brilliant. It was a good decision not to use the old themes too much in it but to add some really new value to the movie. This score just got everything: A great heroic main theme which is a song as well, an extremely sad theme based on the davy jones melody and and overwhelming love theme. There are great developments of the old themes (just think of becketts one) as well as completely new things. Pure emotion. A louder, richer, more dramatic score that fits perfectly to this much darker pirates episode. I love it. It's a great ending for the trilogy.

Your commodious use of the most brilliant orchestral themes had paid off. From 6:45 to the ridiculously INCREDIBLE combination of frenetic strings and french horns at 8:45, I Don't Think Now is the Best Time is the best melody arrangement you've ever written. Thank you. I have no critiques at all.
