Is the soundtrack released on CD, or it's only digital ?by that logic he would’ve done blade runner 2049. He’s retiredMakes you wonder why they didn't get Vangelis himself.Naw man this is the right page lolWrong page?
Rupert Gregsons amazing blending of orchestral and electronic sounds in Aquaman is epic.Arthur is the best?why Slenderman theme not getting the praise it deserves?Conrad Pope is only conductor in this, not orchestrator.Creatively speaking I can see why they choose that particular synth style, and my guess has nothing to do with that Thor Rganarok score. <br><br>It has MUCH to do with one composer: VANGELIS. You cannot see Aquaman landscapes and not to think of Vangelis (Blade Runner to be precise) and by all means, if you know well Mr. Papathanassiou's body of work, in his style.. he even has an album called OCEANIC. <br><br>I mean, RGW even uses the same exact 5 notes in which Vangelis tended to end up some of his themes, as also closing notes for one of his themes. It has nothing to do with Ragnarok.. lets not be so short sighted please.^ And I think a big part of that is the sound mixing. I understand each composer has their own unique voice, but in Holkenborg’s case he tends to mix everything so harshly, particularly the brass. It definitely muffles the music to a degree. <br><br>Similar issue I have with Giacchino, who I think writes amazing music which gets undercut by the really dry mixing.
Arthur alone is worth the price of the whole album. Amazing piece.To me it sounds like the composer's usual fare, only this time it has a touch of Conrad Pope every now and then in the orchestrations. Won't be surprised if CP's involvement went beyond just conducting.I think some pices of music was simillar to bane theme in dark knight rises. Isnt it ?Am I correct that the music used in the long flashback sc&#232;ne with Hester and Shrike is only sort of present in the final track "Alive and Together" ?So the complete score is now available on YouTube and it’s AWSOME. Particularly Escape through Paris
Does anyone have the chronological order yet?? That would be great!@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Gotta agree with you, I definitely think WW is a far stronger score. That’s not to say I think Aquaman is bad, but none of the themes have really impressed me at all. The orchestral/synth hybrid is pretty cool, but once again I think it was done far better with Thor: Ragnarok. <br><br>(Will say this though; “Black Manta” is a badass track)First Impressions:<br><br>This might be one of the most “traditional” scores that Tom has scored at this point in his career. The strings/brass still have the signature JXL sound to them, but the music feels more mature when compared to something like Mad Max or even his most recent outings. <br><br>I’m still picking up on the themes as of now (the most obvious being the main fanfare and Hester’s tune) but the idea for Shrike is definitely a clear standout. Especially when it gets an emotional spin later on. The use of woodwinds and the operatic female solo vocals also are a nice addition.<br><br>Overall this has to be the biggest surprise of the year for me. Having sorta given up on Junkie after being disappointed by his output in the past few years I never expected him to write a fantasy score on this level (while still keeping one foot in his comfort zone of course). Hopefully more producers actually demand quality music from him, as opposed to the shit we got from<br>Tomb Raider and Deadpool.Great work. <br><br>I love Tom's aggressive and extreme way of mixing and bold use of percussion.<br><br>Glad to see him linked to Alita: Battle Angel tooI imagine iTunes and Spotify by Friday. The people commenting on it have likely heard a leaked version.

Thank you very much mister Zimmer for writing such amazing music. Up is down I think is especially great and I love the way you used one of mister Morricone's theme's in Parlay and combined it with your own music! I am a big fan and have great respect for your composingskills!

I bought the soundtrack the day it came out, then went to see the midnight showing of the movie the day it came out. I have to ask, I've been looking on the internet all day, and I can't find the full lyrics to Hoist the Colours. Does anyone have them (including the part Elisabeth sings)?

I bought the soundtrack today and it is truly terrific! Congratulations to Hans and all involved. As for the movie, I felt it was bloated and ludicrous. It was saved only by Johnny Depp's skills as an actor and Hans Zimmer's skills as a musician. The movie wasn't worth the price of admission as a film, but as an advertisement for the soundtrack it was excellent. Gore Verbinski and writers Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio have done themselves, the franchise and its fans a great disservice. Hans Zimmer has only elevated himself further.

The musical part in the potc 3 trailer is made with something like 10 different songs. The ones that sound interesting (in my opinion the track when the ship rides over de desert) are from special agency which are specialized in trailer music such as Immediate Music or X-Ray Dog. I have also been looking for these track during a very long time, but X-Ray Dag tracks are not available to public and I haven't really checked out Immediate Music, so I cann't help.

It sounds AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Based on the descriptions and clips, my top three are...

1) At Wit's End
2) I See Dead People in Boats
3) One Day

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

These clips increased my anticipation for the movie by a ten fold. A feat most would have thought impossible!

yeah wolverine. I love the epic rendition of the pirates chant "What shall we die for" , it's great !
It's very thematic, soft, funny, epic, action when its needed. The first album of pirates really seem like an intruder in this trilogy. Don't get me wrong i love it, but pirates 1 only consists of "ta dadadadada" "TATATATATATATA" all the time , exploding your speaker, so i'm kind of bored of it.

OH MY GOD! Finally Zimmer has composed a true colorfull and orchestral action score!! I have no words! I am a Zimmer fan since days of thunder, but Im his hardest critic too. In the last years I was waiting for a true orchestral action score, but Zimmer always did something diferent and dissapointed me.In fact, I wrotte a comment about Dead man's chest here saying how I dissapointed I was....but Now.... A BIG, COLORFULL, ENERGIC, TOUCHING AND EPIC ZIMMER SCORE!!!! THIS IS THE KIND OF SCORE LIKE CUTHROAD ISLAND OR THE MUMMY RETURNS. THANKS ZIMMER!

"Up is down' is probably the best track in the album, its got all the potential to be the musical icon of the film, melody carries very mature interval change which then makes the track outstanding, the melody takes place also in
“Drink Up Me Hearties”

Good Job overall but still have to see it with the images.
