Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.
Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.
Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.
you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)But the film was particularly bad...<br><br>So I rather have a whole other team do something ELSE lol...Yeah... McCreary's score is one of the best from last year so I'd rather have him again.

Usually I tend to find expanded scores quite boring except Zimmer albums since he always seem to leave the coolest action tracks of the commercial CD. Which is a shame...

I hope they do a deluxe version of the soundtrack later or that the recording sessions leak.

Yeah, sometimes I am OK with a commercial CD but when I really love a score or the film it is from, I will only listen to the expanded version.

Oh FYI to add to Sean's query....Considering we now know that Hans is using a trumpet player from the Rango score, and he is using Spanish guitaristas, I'm thinking (and to my horror dreading) that this score is going to sound comparable to Silvestri's "The Mexican" score, but with the Jack Sparrow beat....which I really hope it doesn't. That just doesn't seem to blend well......but thats just me.

I saw it over a thousand times yesterday and was so mezmerized by the music. It sounded so much of the first track "Guilty of Being Innoncent of Being Jack Sparrow" *shrugs*

I noticed that if you split the name into two it says:

"Guilty of Being Innoncent"
"Innoncent of Being Jack Sparrow"

I just thought that was cool; something Jack would definitely say to confuse anyone. :)

Hello Michael ... justleave in your country ,could you give the track a preview of your album ?! Thanks =D

Evangeline reply Replies: 6 || 2011-05-01 01:40:41
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides soundtrack is fresh, unique, ethereal, and very different than the other three because of the Hispanic vibe Rodrigo y Gabriela give it. Being Hispanic myself, and Gypsy, I utterly and completely love this album because it takes away all the old and brings in a new tone for our mundane lives. My absolute favorite track thus far is "Angelica", but it most likely will change once I buy the album on iTunes. The guitar in that track is just mezmerizing and being a writer I enjoy visualizing my own scenes with Captain Jack, and I most definitely see him dancing away with some exotic nomad...just saying. Anyway, as for the remixes, I believe they are great to my ears, considering I truly don't like techno, but giving these a try I came to disagree with my last comment. This movie is supposedly a movie Johnny Depp wanted to make as a "thank you" to his admirers and because he feels like he owes us, for he believes that the last two had too many subplots and I sort of agree with him. Overall, this soundtrack is just a fresh start for what they are going to bring next in Pirates 5 and I think it's just absolutely breathtaking. We should appreciate Hans Zimmer for trying out new things....

Eva


Phil B2011-05-01 08:23:16
yeah, in most things, what you've said I also agree...


D A R T H2011-05-01 15:30:04
and for the remixes ? :-|


Micah2011-05-01 15:43:20
I'd rather have 7 remixes with the score than 45 minutes of score and no remixes.


Feliz Lombriz2011-05-02 02:37:30
I agree with you for the most part, Evangeline. Rodrigo y Gabriela are great, and I hope they work well in the film. What I'm disappointed about is that (as far as I've heard from the samples) Rodrigo y Gabriela's tracks aren't more incorporated with Zimmer's style. The final track, for example, blends them together and sounds excellent.

As it is, we get about 30 minutes of classic Zimmer Pirates score and 15 minutes of RyG tracks that could just as well be extras from their album 11:11. Good stuff, but not as Pirate-y as it could've been. Disappointing. :/

ShokColla reply Replies: 2 || 2011-05-01 18:48:48
I wish I could agree with most of the folks who are 100% interested with this score, and I understand it if Zimmer wanted to kind of take a back seat on this one since its his 4th ride and gets others to flesh out the score for him (i admit the man really broke his back with part 3 - that was just too epic)

but sorry...a cd with only 40 minutes of score - nay - try 20 of score and 20 of solor guitar pieces - this doesn't exactly do it for me.


All I can say is I hope Itunes has a single song purchase option, because im not wasting my money on all those other tracks and remixes....


herontronic2011-05-02 16:36:54
I think, with PotC2-3 everything is said (=composed) about pirates. Now, he only could give it a new direction (spanish elements), but it would have been a mistake, if he tried to make the last one (PotC3) better. So, the score only could get worse than the former ones, because we have been spoiled!


shokcolla2011-05-02 18:25:28
Thats exactly the problem - that Hans perhaps thought that parts 2 and 3 were pretty much it for him. Therefore he's really got nothing to add to this, and I can see. Outside of maybe Blackbeard's theme, the rest pretty much sounds like rehashes of old themes.

But that doesn't bother me. Nor does Rodrigo and Gabriel doing their thing during one of his score tracks.

Its the fact that they have 4 minute suites of solos while Zimmer gets 2 minute cues at best. The rest are Dj remixes of said tracks.

That bothers me.

Micah reply Replies: 1 || 2011-05-01 20:05:22
It may be a short score, but it's only 5 minutes shorter than DMC and 10 minutes shorter than AWE.

One could argue that Tiësto's remix was bearable, but these... It's like they said 'dudes, we need additional cheap 30 minutes, you've got 1 hour'.

Ugh, Tiesto was in no way bearable.


Uga2011-04-29 03:44:36
Who wants remixes when they buy a soundtrack? Does disney think it's more kid friendly or something? I can tell you they aren't going to be making more money with remixes. Complete or near complete scores would be more acceptable as 18 tracks than this garbage we're getting. I mean the score itself will be alright, but half of this is just crap we won't even hear in the film.


Cloud2011-04-30 02:15:35
I'm not buying this abomination of an album no matter what. The score is fine, I even like all the guitar work, but 30 mins of friggin remixes? REALLY?! I honestly hope this wasn't Hans' decision, because if he doesn't accept the fact that this is an atrocity, a total gang rape of an otherwise (hopefully) enjoyable score album, then I'm seriously losing respect for the guy. Sheesh, and I thought Tiesto's 'creation' for Dead Man's Chest was already too much...

Can only hope that they come up with a Deluxe Edition or something with more score, like TRON Legacy had. There's almost certain to be a ton of amazing action music missing here. Apart from that, I like what I heard of the clips. "He's A Pirate" with guitar flavouring is especially cool.

My thoughts incidently... I actually quite like the new Spanish pieces. They were quite a surprise, but I think they'll grow on people after a while.

My favorite tracks though are the Hans Zimmer stuff. Palm Tree Escape is probably my favorite, I really wasn't expecting it to build into the DMC Jack theme. Took me by surprise, but in a good way.

The score overall from what I've heard reminds me a lot of the first and second movies. I think the action music has the wild energy and fun of the first.

The first remix is sorta catchy, the rest are forgettable.


Michael2011-04-29 07:10:13
Much better, you're recordings. Thanks! Hearing the 2 previews combined makes it alot better! And indeed, the RyG parts sound better and better every time I hear them. It's new, getting used to it. Though there must be ALOT of music in the movie we can't hear on a cd. Hopefully Hans will release a gigantic full recordings cd of all the potc's.

Listened to the samples. Yeah, expectations for this release just plummeted. We can't hear enough of Zimmer's score to really judge yet, but I did some math:
-34 minutes of remix to 45 minutes of original score.
-If you don't include the solo tracks by Rodrigo y Gabriella it becomes less than 30 minutes of original score.

4 more minutes of remix than original score. Those better be good remixes.

Where are these samples exactly ?


Andrew2011-04-28 10:24:42
Alex, check Amazon.de:

Feliz, you want it or not, the Rodrigo y Gabriela stuff are part of the score ! ;)


Phil B2011-04-28 11:07:39
very disappointing....

but let us wait for the full songs...


Evenstar2011-04-28 11:28:05
i don't like it either... same themes just recycled (like in "Rango").

:(


PJ22011-04-28 11:40:56
As Evenstar said, it's seem to be recycle of Rango, and previous pirates. And 45minutes of soundtrack it's a shame, especially followed by those hawfull remixes.


Ds2011-04-28 18:31:39
You don't know if there are "solo tracks by Rodrigo&Gabriela", 30sec preview isn't representative of 5min music!


Michael2011-04-28 20:03:04
@ DS

Yes, they are solo tracks by Rodrigo y Gabriela. It doesn't say they were made by Hans Zimmer & Rodrigo y Gabriela, just their names.

The pieces Hans made and made with RyG are the best. So far the solo's don't seem very promising. The Remixes are the worst thing in the world.


Jaynufire2011-04-28 20:48:47
Im going to have to agree with Pete Postlethwaite on this one..."I was diss...dissa...dissapointed!"...

...But I am willing to bet all the potentially great thematic stuff will be in the film and NOT on the soundtrack...(sad face)

You can hear an unreleased clip from the soundtrack on the newest Disney Channel Movie Surfer featurette. It sounds like it could be Blackbeard's theme.

Can you post a link?

on iTunes store, there the track samples are a little bit different to the one on amazon...

but even not good (better) enough xD


Micah Garnett2011-04-28 16:02:09
link?


Ds2011-04-28 18:28:01
On the Belgium iTunes store samples are available! Album will be released on may 13th!

Dissapointed indeed. The tracks form Hans are awesome, but almost everything is re-used from the earlier tracks, only played with different instruments. 'Mermaids' is cool, with that small AWE theme re-used. 'Blackbeard' is not that thematic (as Davy Jones for example), but the instruments you hear give it a nice touch. 'On Stranger Tides' not much thematic also, but again the way it is performed makes it beautiful. The Rodrigo y Gabriela tracks don't seem to be very thematic and only filling things up, not excited. I coudln't even finish the remixes so bad. I really hope they posted the worst 30 secons, and everything else is awesome. High hopes, low expectations.

7 remixes ? 7 !!! No no Nooooooooooooo !!!!

what a shame....


d a r t h2011-04-28 15:24:16
7 remixes directly for the trash and only 45mn of score for a total of 77mn...


Phil B2011-04-28 15:33:40
but for what do they add so much remixes, they could also leave them or???

don't understand that !!


Evenstar2011-04-28 15:57:27
it's all about money ;-)

This realease makes Dead Man's Chest a masterpiece.

Great to see the ethereal motive form POTC3 in "mermaids "anyway.


peter112011-04-28 15:01:32
Just had a listen to the samples and I gotta say this time they've gone way too far. Finally a full disc but over 30 mins of horrible sounding remixes and barely any zimmer.

I'm gonna once again hate seeing the movie and finding out how much awesome music that wont be on the disc.

HONESTLY the recording sessions for these 4 scores have to be out there somewhere!!


Micah2011-04-28 15:15:34
Dead Man's Chest was a travesty. They left out every single good part of the score (Arrival at Isla Cruces, Escape from Cannibal Island, The first Kraken attack).

I'm not gonna listen to the clips until I get the album, but I really hope this isn't the cast with OST.


Zimmerito2011-04-28 15:23:07
I don't think zimmer can put more music in this cd without co-credit someone else in the cover. I think Zimmer worked too little on this score.
At least Dead Man's chest had 3 big suites, a major action track (from Gire and sponsler) and a Big climatic ending.
We will be lucky if "mermaids" and "Blackbeard" are great...
:(
