It is the Black Beard theme with a new arrange. Maybe exist some reason behind thisI'm actually pretty excited by what I'm hearing. Carina's new theme is nice and I love the orchestral energy Geoff brings to this one. The one gripe I have with this so far is that Salazar's theme, at least the beginning, is almost Blackbeard's theme note for note. It even has some of the same instrumentation. Other than that, I tip my hat to Geoff.It sounds very much like the intro motif from Blackbeard theme, not the theme itself, although not the same exact notes neither.<br><br>I think is merely intentional to these have the same "DNA", is not accident. Remember Zanelli was heavily involved in Stranger Tides, much more than the trilogy.My teenager daugther and I are looking  forward to seing you in  Barcelona.  It would be the nicest gift I could ever give to her for her 18th birthday.I discovered today that Lorne will be scoring/has scored the upcoming movie 'Churchill' Awesome stuff!
Hybrid - what did you like/not like about it?Quite the opposite most people (who care) were/are looking forward to seeing what Geoff Zanelli would do after the uninspiring On Stranger Tides.<br><br>Having said that I'm not feeling this one. I'm glad it was composed by someone who wanted to do it but I think Hans' creativity is missed, honestly. For all the talk about ghost-writers (which I've argued about on here a few times), it's telling when you hear the original work of people who've arranged his compositions and compare.<br><br>I will say one thing in defence of it. Last time out (with OST) we got our first exposure to the score back when there was a possibility the film would still be good. Sadly it's been confirmed as shit and I wonder if that biases my view when listening to it and makes me less receptive.The suite brought tears to my eyes. The music I hope is Carina's theme is too beautiful for words.I imagine some kind of connection between Salazar and Blackbeard. Not that is in the movie, may be conceptual, but I don't think is "accidental" or laziness. It sounds pretty intentionalthis sounds nothing at all like davey jones.  or blackbeard as other people said.  i think many people decided not to like this score before it came out.  that's all i think when i see these comments.  is anyone actually listening?
just a recall of the Davy Jones first appearance music : <br>https://youtu.be/Lhb4FccPrOI?t=2m58ssalazar's theme guys : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BL7vHk9sq3s&ab_channel=disne ymusicJust read that on film music reporter . Lorne has to be the most in demand composer at the moment . Amazing how busy he is and really enjoying his score to GeniusThat's not surprising to hear, this series really has become one big cash grab (moreso than it already was)<br><br>I'm really excited to hear the full score on album when it drops, Geoff is enormously talented. Judging by the suite alone there really aren't any new moments that pop out to me or scream <br>memorable. Even On Stranger Tides managed to fit in some pretty solid new ideas, and a decent album presentation outside of the remixes.<br><br>Also, is it just me or is the recording a bit flat?Does ol Hector Barbossa get his own theme or do they use Becketts again?
Well I saw the film today as well and I can't express how disappointed I was by it... Such a mess, with a bunch of horrible things and some good ones halas buried in the rest...<br><br>As for the score, it flows better on CD, but Geoff did really good, much better than the 4th.The Suite sounds great and the music from the instagram video the director Joachim Ronning posted is at around the 0:25 second mark I think but Geoff Zanelli did great with this.Eh, I'm not really like Blackbeard's - I mean Salazar's theme. It sounds like a temped mix of the Blackbeard theme and Ramin's Kaiju theme from Pacific Rim.<br><br>The rest sounds pretty good, especially the references to "Marry Me"<br><br>Hybrid, what are your impressions of the full thing?Lorne Balfe attached to score Horse Soldiers. <br><br>They guy is everywhere.Then again, I assume 9:40 is the new adventure theme?<br><br>Also, 9:40 is the best part of the suite. Can't get enough of it.

a very good score with amazing parts. The 'Batman Begins' face is on the track 'Diamond Mine Bombed'.
The influence of Zimmer is so strong on this score that is troublant!

I wish the score were longer, "Village Attack" was amazing.
