Mulan get his release... through Disney+, 4th September.Mulan is being released on sept 4th. Can't wait to hear Harry's score!!!!Here's an interview about Last Samurai from https: //www.soundtrack. net/content/article/?id=112You can find an interview with Hans on his process for TLS on somewhere, back in 2003 or 2004The tracklist they posted has 58 tracks and yours contains only 54
<br>interesting thing, He never really spoke about Last Samurai. but you have to realize, even when He speaks, its not always the truth. <br><br>The only thing I know, in 2013 doing press for Rush, He really said the hardest job was Last Samurai, well its not true according to himself, if you watch the behind the scenes stuff from Matchstick Men from 2003, right there He says that he was working on 3 huge films, (tears of the sun / Pirates / last samurai) and Mathstick men was the absolute hardest for him.<br><br>also Ed Zwick talks about working with Hans on the dvd commentary sometimes, but nothing really fancy.<br><br>Im sure there is an interview for this film with him, since he was at the premierI am struggling to find an interview where Hans speaks about this soundtrack. Does it even exist? <br>I spent the last hours digging but nothing. I always desired to hear some comments about it, like he does for the other works he's done.<br>I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...<br><br><br>@Mephariel<br>You can find Great Bear Rainforest on under Anze RozmanMondo only offered to send me a return label and a refund. No info yet on if they plan to fix it. :-/Mine arrived today and is definitely sped up.
LOL klaus badelt hardly composed pirates 1You know what? I love the booklet credits! Klaus Badelt is the same guy who scored Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.Thanks Hybrid soldier for the good news<br>I can't wait to see the documental film and hear the score of lorne balfe & hans zimmer.A score will be released.<br><br>You can always count on Lorne for that. It's in the works.What was the last Zimmer documentary score that they released outside of BBC? <br><br>I am still waiting for The Great Bear Rainforest.
I hope they can the soundtrack release for "Rebuilding Paradise" composed by Hans zimmer & Lorne balfe, including an original song for the film. I hope there is a possibility that they will release the score.How to get this at all?Any news about Rebuilding Paradise soundtrack?@Hybrid:<br>Any news about a release for Ron Howard "Rebuilding Paradise" soundtrack by Hans ans Lorne. The documentary airing today. Any info will be much Appreciated.Well I take that part of it back and stand corrected. I have to say the editing choice I think was the right call but won't elaborate here.  I hope we get more Last Samurai someday.  Qobuz at least sells the CD quality version digitally for now.

Zimmer interview on Pirates and Panda reply Replies: 8 || 2011-05-17 09:49:42
filmmusicmag. com/?p=7890

Zimmer condones the remixes and talks about being bored of his original tunes but being forced to use them. Sounds like the only thing he enjoyed about this one was the collaboration. Also speaks about following Powell's lead for Panda.

Brent2011-05-17 10:55:50
First of all, the studio decides whether or not to create a soundtrack album in which they then decide who/what exactly will be featured. It was Disney's ultimate choice to include the remixes with the albums (look at Tron Reconfigured). Zimmer knew the remixes for Pirates 2 & 3 were not all that great, so he tried to feature ones that "capture the fun of the film" on this album. Is it extensive? Absolutely. Is it necessary? Probably not. Again, it's the Studio's choice. As of being bored with his themes, I sort of see where he is coming from. He's done 3 of these already. Like he said himself, "how does it reinvent itself." There's only so much you can do to musical themes before they become repetitive. As for my own selfish reasons, I would of loved to see more "Zimmer Score" featured in this album. But because of the above "musical theme" reason, I am surprisingly relieved that this album didn't turn into a 75 minute Brian Tyler excessive type score. Zimmer has provided us a niece action-adventure score suitable for a fourth Pirates film. I can't wait to see how his music lives and breathes within the film's context and not just on CD.

Prott2011-05-17 13:55:06
Great interview! Especially the second part.

Trent Easton Navarro2011-05-17 15:44:00
@ Brent

I'm sorry, but I'll take Brian Tyler's 80 min releases any day over this sad excuse of a soundtrack album. I prefer my soundtracks to actually represent the film it was written for properly.

As for Zimmer being tired of the themes, he should have rejected this one then and let someone else score it. Williams has written six Star Wars scores and all were great pieces of work. Same with Goldsmith on Star Trek. Besides he doesn't have to reinvent himself, it's his minions who has to do that. They probably wrote most of the score. All Hans has to do is sit back and collect a big fat paycheck.

peckherr2011-05-17 15:57:10
yes and Im also quite sure Zimmer has some control over what goes on these soundtracks....

Look at Panda 2 - the album is practically all the film's score. Why can he do it with that one but not this one?

Zimmer seemed to be more enthusiastic abot that film that Pirates 4.... in other words he just didnt give a crap, let his minions do most the work, and wanted Rodrigo and Gabriel to be featured heavily in this soundtrack, even though their solo musical pieces arent used very much within the movie, so he says....

you tell me...

HP2011-05-18 11:10:56
Saw the movie in the Netherlands already (it premieres here today) and the music is awesome. Only, most of the Rodrigo y Gabriela pieces aren't really in the movie.
The only thing I could hear was the Angelica-theme.
And (spoiler) as the Spanish come to the Fountain, there's a small piece of a very well-known composer in it. I thought it to be from Berlioz, but I'm not sure.
Next week, when I'm going again, I will listen more carefully to unravel this mystery.

And last but not least: On Stranger Tides is an awesome movie, it feels totally new to me. Take in mind that I'm a huge fan and have seen the other three movies a lot.

tomPoland2011-05-18 13:05:33

John Barry scored 12 Bond movies and wasn't complaining,
What about composers that work for TV - Giacchino or Joel Goldsmith?

Tired? Say NO!

Jo2011-05-19 09:22:37
Very enlightening.... he really shouldnt do so many sequels. I think he doesnt have the heart to say no to people he likes.... like in this case Jerry Bruckheimer.

Andrew2011-05-19 12:10:49
Jo, I think it is more of a professional issue than emotional. You say no to your usual collaborator and chances are strong that you lose the opportunity of future collaborations too. Reminds me of Hans' working relationship with Ridley Scott. They haven't worked with each other since Hans decided to withdraw from Kingdom of Heaven, remember?

Pete reply Replies: 8 || 2011-05-18 16:36:11
Well, I've just seen the film. I enjoyed it a lot and I enjoyed the score greatly. I have to say however that this album is a very bad representation of what's in the movie. First of all, Rodrigo and Gabriela. They're not in this score. From what I could tell they featured in 2 cues, the first being palm tree escape (and that was brief, the he's a pirate guitar reprise that occurs on the track on the album had no guitars in the mix in the film) and the end credits piece which was the same as on the album. Angelica's music was non-existent. The little two note motif can be heard here and there as in mutiny, but the angelica track is nowhere to be found in the entire film, no guitar tango, no sawing strings. The pirate that should not be does not feature nor do south of heaven's chanting mermaids or angry and dead again. So this was quite disappointing as I was looking forward to hearing their sound in the film but it just seemed to be cut out almost completely.

As for the rest of the music - it's good, there are many very good cues that aren't on the soundtrack album. Including some interesting variants on the east india trading company theme for the british. Davy jones even makes a brief appearance during jack's carriage riding. This is somewhat annoying also - themes from the previous movies seem to lose any leitmotivic significance that they had, and get tracked into random action scenes.

The main theme of the film is the mermaid's theme, which also becomes the theme for the quest for the fountain of youth. This wonderful theme is treated to lots of different reprises and variations. A particular stand-out is in the mermaids scene where a group of mermaids are singing a song, then the theme blends in beautifully in the background.

Blackbeards theme is also well used. All parts of the blackbeard suite are used at some stage in the film.

The big choral statement half way through "On Stranger Tides" is a theme for the spanish conquistadors. Doesn't seem to get much development but maybe I missed it. According to zimmer, geoff zanelli wrote this theme. It's good.

so track-by-track

1. Guilty of Being Innocent of Being Jack Sparrow
Heard in its entirety during the opening scenes.
2. Angelica
Not featured
3. Mutiny
Heard pretty much the same as on the album
4. The Pirate that sould not be
Not featured
5. Mermaids
Full cue from film
Not featured
7. Palm Tree Escape
Full cue, but less guitars in the mix
8. Blackbeard
First 2 minutes or so are from a scene near the beginning then the rest of it is from a scene near the end
9. Angry and Dead Again
Not featured
10. On Stranger Tides
It's all in the movie, but the mermaids theme gets so many statements I can't remember which one this is.
11. End Credits

Really want to hear a full score of this.

Anonymous2011-05-18 16:54:57
so we only have 25 minutes of the score on this album. It's even less than megamind. Instead of crappy pop songs we have Rodrigo y Gabriela.

HP2011-05-18 17:23:04
Pete, I do have to correct you here.
There is definitely a scene where the 'Angelica'-tango is used, on the deck of the QAR, the ship of Blackbeard. Not the whole song, indeed, but it IS there.
Also, with the Palm Tree Escape, the full song is there, not with less guitars. You just can't hear them well, as a result of overwhelming sound effects.

Finally, the choir-sequence in 'On Stranger Tides' can be heard in the beginning of the movie and as the Spanish arrive.

HP2011-05-18 17:25:53
One more thing!
The second 'big' cue in Blackbeard, on 2:22, is also used in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Can't remember the scene, but I'll look it up if you want me to do that.

Jasper2011-05-18 18:08:41
The cue from 2.22 is heard in Dead Man's Chest I believe, when Elizabeth is using her wedding dress as a puppet.

Anonymous2011-05-18 20:26:58
Jasper is correct about the cue heard at the 2:22 mark. It is a cue written originally for Dead Man's Chest by Trevor Morris, and it's known as "Haunted Dress to Tortuga".

HP2011-05-18 20:41:20
My bad, it was indeed Dead Man's Chest.
It screwed it up a bit, 'cause I did a marathon of the franchise last night. Thought it to be from AWE.

Ds2011-05-19 02:05:01
Tracklist as in the movie:

On Stranger Tides (full)
Guilty of being innocent... (full)
Blackbeard (just the theme)
Mutiny (full)
Blackbeard (till 2'20")
Angelica (30 seconds, different version)
Mermaids (full but with shorter beginning)
Palm Tree Escape (full)
Blackbeard (2'20-3'25")
Up Is Down (beginning, different version)

End Credits (full)
Mermaids (first half)
Palm Tree Escape (full)
Blackbeard (theme)

There are also many variations of:
- DMC theme at the end of "Blackbeard" ("A Family Affair")
- "On Stranger Tides" theme, with better orchestration (less "trailer music" than the track)
- Jack Sparrow theme
- He's a Pirate
- Beckett theme

popo2011-05-19 04:21:11
if this is the case then you're not really missing maybe the better orchestrated On Stranger Tides Theme...

Man if only someone would upload a remix of it on Youtube with a good beat....The remixes dont do it justice.

Yes the Guitar pieces are mostly at the bottom - because they sound like end credit music to me, but particularly Angry and Dead again sounds like a nice transition from the End Credits track...

Either way, the soundtracks blows chunks. don't get too excited or excited at all, you'll be even more disappointed.

Bondo2011-05-12 10:38:02
I always try to listen to scores chronologically if possible, so thank you for this! Is this just a guess or do you have additional info?

Dom2011-05-13 23:03:31
@ Bondo- It's got to just be a guess, the 3 rodrigo tracks are not in the film.

Ds2011-05-13 23:24:28
Dom - is this a joke? how do you know that?

Dom2011-05-14 02:06:51
If you notice on the complete score tracklist, all the cues are either too short or too long to be any of those cues, they can't be split up, either.

Bondo2011-05-14 05:37:09
@Dom - Not true, "Guilty of Being Innocent of Jack Sparrow" is less than 2 minutes long, and "Blackbeard" is most certainly 3 separate cues. And don't forget Zimmer likes to put theme suites on the OSTs

tomPoland2011-05-14 09:24:20

Rodrigo tracks are coherent and they can't be splitted. It would sound awful.

Bondo2011-05-14 10:16:31
I know

Ds2011-05-14 13:22:30
The people who arrange music in the films are very good, every piece of music can be split up!

I think Rodrigo's songs will be in the movie, but maybe not entirely (just like the songs of Rio or Madagascar). Otherwise it'd be a non-sense to put these on the OST!

Micah reply Replies: 3 || 2011-05-13 04:36:52
I see what you are all saying about the remixes, but the other soundtracks were short and lacked remixes. If I can't have a long soundtrack either way (the first three soundtracks weren't long either), I'd rather have a shorter soundtrack with remixes.

But that's just my opinion.

Evangelines2011-05-13 05:34:01
Probably the artists who remixed these songs never got their chance to remix in the previous two albums because it just wasn't needed and/or they didn't have enough time to fit in more remixed songs, so by creating this new soundtrack that has given these techno artists the chance to remix some songs chosen specifically for them. For all we know, the previous albums could've been this long actually, but they're not.

That's also my opinion…


Anonymous2011-05-13 13:40:16
The first 3 had remixes sold sepretly

Evangeline2011-05-14 11:17:35
There were ones on the soundtrack too, my dear. They might've wanted to be on the ACTUAL soundtrack instead of selling their remixes sold separately, because then if you bought the album you would have to endure their remixed songs anyway, of it being on the album. If I composed techno I would've proposed the same thing…get most of the profits, but that's just what I think. I don't know much about the music business. :)


Face it reply Replies: 0 || 2011-05-14 05:54:53
Out of this score, unless the actual movie presents even more original pieces not put on the album, is just a rehash with Spanish guitar thrown in for color.

The TRUE original pieces here are 1: Blackbeard's theme (and I don treally consider it a theme because its liek a reverse engineered theme from the "B" Pirates theme used in DMC and AWE

and 2(if there's to TRULY be an ORIGINAL MAIN THEME out of this mess): The Mermaids/At World's End Theme....Which basically is an extension of the Mystical theme from AWE, anyway, but is way more memorable than Blackbeard's.

Thats it.

Mermaids. Case Closed. Here's to the DVD release...

So, if they hired Eric Whitticare of choral writing fame, and if reports are correct and Whitticare indeed recorded choir for this in Abbey Road (London), then why is it that they put sampled choir on the CD at the end? What I am hearing in "Mutiny", "Blackbeard" or "On Stranger Tides", at least, is definitely the same sample library with which they put together Angels & Demons.

Anonymous reply Replies: 6 || 2011-05-13 00:30:45
the problem with all of you complaining about this score is simple

a) it's the 4th movie!! like holy crap. what, did you expect? Zimmer to scrap all the themes and write a whole new score???? then you would just bitch about the fact that there were not old themes at all! there's just as much new material here as AWE, sure zimmer may not have written it, but its still amazing.

b) those of you who hate RyG, open your mind up to more than just whatever music you listen to. Music is music, it's all good, and if you don't like it shut up and don't listen to it.

c) film composers write music that fits the movie - this is the 4TH movie, no one is really taking is seriously anyway, so why should hans take the music anymore seriously??? what he did fits the film exactly as it should. We're lucky we get to have a physical copy of the score to listen to, they could have just as easily not released it. Hans doesn't write for his fans, he writes for the people who are paying him. If he wrote for his fans, he'd just be a composer, not a film composer

personally, i really enjoyed the score (and even i hadn't i wouldn't bitch about it - yet ironically, i loved it and and i am still writing a crap load on this site haha XD)
if you didn't like the score, fine fair enough, just shut up, listen to AWE and wait for Zimmer's next score.

anonybananamous2011-05-13 03:50:06
Umm...I can answer all three of your points like so:

Because That's his fuggin' JOB, say what.

You can tell when a worker is milking it just to get his paycheck...We went from a decent At World's End score album to THIS pile of Frankenstein crap?

At least try, Zimmer, to get your music out there on THIS ONE.

Nuff said...

Evangeline2011-05-13 03:57:04
I'm sorry to those who might hate us for saying this, but I honestly agree with you, love. Even though I have not gotten the album yet (5 more days!!!), I still believe the previews are spectacular. Now, I don't want to sound rude in any way in this, but in my opinion, I think the real reason most of you "dislike" it is because you were expecting it to be something completely different…but why? Why change the sound of a movie series if it's ment to sound a certain way? There is a reason why the first movie sounded so epic, as well as the second and third, but why not connect all three to this one? Why not bring back that sound we all love to be reminded of how Pirates will never be forgotten because of the music? That's what Hans has done and it was Johnny's idea to bring in the Spanish vibe into the movie because he wanted the plot to stick to the actual story of Ponce De Leon(sp). By doing so, it was probably his idea to bring in Rodrigo y Gabriela, "probably", and it is new, fresh, exotic, ethereal, romantic, and absolutely breathtaking. Honestly, I didn't want Hans to change the way Pirates was originaly made, which includes the music, because I wanted it to be memorable. Something we can listen to ten years from now and say "This is music."


Evangeline2011-05-13 04:16:02
Also, as far as the remixes go, and I am not one to listen to techno, I think they are the best techno pieces I've heard this year. I mean, this isn't the first time Hans put techno in the Pirates albums, it's in the second and third ones too. There was also a remix CD for just the song "He's a Pirate"…that was the only song they remixed, actually, but this one is a lot better because it remixes different songs.


CS792011-05-13 04:23:31
I also like the score, but why not more of it?
half album is remix-crap and that´s bulls*#$%!!!!!

Trent Easton Navarro2011-05-13 15:19:47
"it's the 4th movie!! like holy crap. what, did you expect?"

Brian Tyler just scored the 5th Fast and Furious flick (his 3th for the franchise) and wrote one hell of a score for it. John Williams wrote music for six Star Wars films, all are classic scores. Jerry Goldsmith has written great scores for several Star Trek films.

tomPoland2011-05-13 19:08:44
You really should listen to non-zimmer composers.

Composer should always write as best as possible. If he can't - take a vacation. When he felt that it's beyond he's abbilities, he should give this project to someone else.

BTW As for blockbusters - Thor and Priest are awesome. So as LEGO Universe. Listen and learn.

The problem is that Zimmer make too much soundtrack! It would be better to do less and make them beautiful. There he finds himself in very little time to chain Rango, Crysis, POTC and soon Kung Fu Panda. It is not human. The soundtrack for the new Pirates of the Caribbean is very disappointing: lots of recycling. And I think RyG have composed a lot for this soundtrack, unfortunately, their material is quite average

well what did you expect? ITS THE FOURTH BLOODY MOVIE!!!! goddam it people, stop your complaining that it's "recycled" and just enjoy the fuckin thing.

i'm sorry if i this offends any of you, truly i am, but seriously, it's the 4th movie in the series... like seriously, what the fuck did you expect????

Epics2011-05-13 03:30:54
It doesn't matter if it's the 4th movie, just because it's the 4th one doesn't mean the score should suck.

Epics2011-05-13 03:40:07
And, the fact that once again they failed to exclude much music in favor of, dare I say it, REMIXES! GAH!

What he said...

The guy's job is to make a decent film score. ESPECIALLY considering it's a SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER TENTPOLE and they paid him high money for it. I'm all for an expanded or complete score of this to TRULY judge the caliber applied for this film (I suspect this album is truly shaving off LOTS of the better music, ala DMC), but unfortunately this is all we have, so insofar it sucks IMO, humble as tho it may be (or not, considering many people's gripes on here and abroad)...

I gotta pay 10 bucks for THIS? You serious? ALOT of remixes now than before? What gives? Zimmer. Thats what.

I agree with Epics and anonybananmous. Anonymous is taking it so fuckin personally. Theres NO EXCUSE to write a half-assed score, by all means reuse themes but make an effort. People can hate this if they want. Anonymous is an idiot >X(

hmmm... Surely the man who could bring us such amazing themes as Kraken, Davy Jones, Cutler Beckett, and that enormous love theme in the third film, could have done something more for the Blackbeard, Fountain of Youth or Mermaids concept. I am not going to say that he wasn't involved in this film, for I am sure he was. But I am guessing something held him back. I am actually a little concerned about his well-being. Most of the photos I have seen of him lately show a truly exhausted man. The news that broke lately that he has jumped ship from the Gorfaine-Schwartz agency to WME might also have a thing or two to say too...

at this point id settle for a nice remix of the mermaids theme put to beat...None of this dance house BS remix, either...Giveit more percussion cuz it needs it, since it seems to be the only true "orginal theme" aside from Blackbeards (which isnt all that great IMO).

Rob Marshall did have a hand in editing the music according to a recent interview.

I'm digging the score itself, minus the remixes. The Pirates series have too many themes to have such a short album. There is little to no development for Angelica or Blackbeard's themes on the album; I'm sure this would be corrected in the complete score.

I Honestly don't understand why so many people are disliking the score. I liked it and I loved how they brought back the original themes and introduced newer themes, because it brings back the same contiunity and doesn't make the movie seem too overly distant from the previous three. Personally, I liked it.

The remixes make me sick!

I love Mermaids!!!! Palm Tree Escape and End Credits are great too. In general, yes there is a lot of the old stuff, and the R y G pieces are not as amazing as I had hoped them to be, but they are growing on me. It's a good and fun 'Jack Remixed' with a few new tidbits here and there. Yes, I'd love a completely new amazing score, but this one makes me very happy for now :)

Score's already up on Youtube? Wow....

Im lookin at....6 of the 18 tracks that Im going to buy (god willing if Itunes/Amazon allows separate tracks to be purchased)

pity...After At World's End I expected a much better crafted score album. Maybe Zimmer/Disney plan on double dipping like he did with Soundtrack treasures? MEH...Such a waste this time out.

I Like the score, except those horrible remixes. Hans did a good job
