oh wow finally... and I like how they finally gave Lorne creditFinally this gets some sort of release outside of China !Well it's complicated cause on the first film it was done such in a hurry that some themes became more "situation themes" than "character themes". But yeah, there's a loooooooooooot !I did a breakdown for the hell of it a while back, the sheer amount of themes/motifs is astounding, not quite as many as Lord of the Rings or Star Wars but very close!<br><br>It’s tricky to really place some of the theme meanings in as much as they were repurposed for the other films through temp tracking.I was recently revisiting all of this scores and I was wondering...<br><br>Could anyone help me identify all of the themes from the whole saga and tell mewhat they represent?<br><br>I already got a lot of them like the Kraken, Davy Jones, Mermaids, the main theme, etc. But others are still a bit confusing on what they represent, like for example the theme Neely and Badelt created in the first movie that were used in the following movies.<br><br>Thanks in advance!
why no cd release?Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !
Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.
We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.

Could you post the whole link to it ?. I tried to highlight the link, and then i right clicked it, to use a webrowser to to get to it, and it didn't work, because the whole website link was not there.

I know by the use of Spanish guitars and trumpets theyre going for a Spanish-styled score (if not simply a subtheme by itself apart from the main themes, of course). All I'm saying is if Zimmer uses it in the main theme it's gonna be a completely different sound than what we've been used to, I'm thinking.

A subtheme sounds like the better bet, but considering the Fountain of Youth has always been a Spanish tale, like Michael mentioned earlier the theme of the Fountain may take precedence over the film as a main theme in which case yer lookin at trumpets a blazin in this score, which right now reminds me of Rango and the Mexican...

I know Zimmer isn't gonna cop out on his previous themes as before, so we'll see what he does. for all I know he's probably intending its use ala the Sinagpore theme in part 3 - it didn't cover the whole score. All I'm saying is we never had solo trumpets in the previous versions, so I'm hoping he doesn't go balls-out with its use throughout the score.

And i dont see why people come on here to get upset about the ones who offer "complaints". If it wasn't for these so called whiners, we wouldnt be having much of a conversation and we'd all sittin around waiting....So at least we got something to talk about while we wait.

Aint dat always da way tho? Expected released date of CD is already known, but because tracklist always finds its way online early people get it in their heads there's an actual "tracklisting release date". No...Sorry...If there is one, it's a private company affair and doesn't correspond with anyone else...In oder words - they release it when they release it.

So jus chill....thats always da best medicine. Besides, I heard this new score gonna have TRUMPET in it now....Trumpet? Ehhh.......What the hell, man!

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Hmmmm, Trumpets you say ?, that sounds pretty intense for Pirates of the Caribbean music, wouldn't you say so ? . It'll be interest to hear what the music will sound like, and what it will be like overall ! . At least we don't have to wait too long for the soundtrack to come out, considering it comes out on May 17th in about a month from now. Do you have any guesses on what the titles of the songs with be on the Pirates 4 soundtrack ? , i bet they will be some interesting titles for each of them on there. Also, i wonder how many songs with be on there.

karloff reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
yes..trumpets my good man....I have no idea....The only reason I can think of is because of the whole Spanish Conquistador angle regarding the Fountain of Youth, which was (correct me if im wrong) linked up with the adventures of Ponce de Leon in the 1600s in Florida....

Funny thing is I pictured Floridian Native Indians (Seminoles) being in the score mix and not so much pirates and spaniards, but whatever...Based on where the fountain of youth is supposedly located is inland Florida...aka the Everglades......if anyone's ever tasted Everglades water it is fairly sweet.....which is probably where the legend began.

At any rate, I just hope Zimmer doesnt get too bombastic with the trumpets...This isnt Rango....

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
I don't think Hans Zimer would go to far with the Trumpets in Pirates 4's music. I don't think he would would over do it with this movies soundtrack (the music) . Plus, Rango and Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger tides are two different movies, so i'm sure it'll turn out just fine. I doubt that any of the songs would sound the same, when comparing Pirates 4 and Rango's music.

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Don't see what's wrong with the trumpet. It's a great instrument. Combined with the spanish guitars and some classy Zimmer themes it will sound great (as it always does).

and sandoval is a wonderful artist and great trumpet player. I'm so thrilled he's going to be playing on this. Can't wait.

karloff reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Well, by the musicians he is gathering for this score it sounds like he's going for a Spanish-styled theme (or subtheme, perhaps), and thats not very far away from your standard Mexican theme...

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
I still don't see the problem. Come on guys, Hans Zimmer and Pirates of the Caribbean standing together... it is proved to be a great combination.. so it will sound awesome no matter what instrument he uses and combines.

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Yeah, no trumpets please, that would be downright insulting. Y'know what, let's not have any traditional live instruments at all, just to make sure. Just have a rock band perform the whole thing. Jesus H. Christ.

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Yes, i think you are right. Plus, that could be a great sound for Pirates 4 's music, if it does turn out to be that way.

Peter reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
You guys should realise that trumpets actually BELONG in a real pirate score. Maybe that's what Hans is aiming for, a more traditional swashbuckling score.

Are you really discussin about Trumpets? it's one of my less favourite instruments but...for the love of God!

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
By the way... where is the confirmation of the trumpets being used, you worry about? And it won't be the main theme I think. Spain is a small theme in the story. Queen Anne's Revenge Blackbeard, Jack & Angelica), England (Barbossa & King George) and Spain (King Ferdinand & The Spaniard) hunt the Fountain. I assume you'll only hear the Spanish theme(s) and sounds when Spain is on screen and it's characters are interacting with the other characters. I figure the main theme will be the one of the Fountain since that's the thing driving the story. Like the Love theme in At World's End was THE main theme for the journey too. Ah well.. we'll hear soon enough. Don't worry.

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
It will not happen that way, i assure you it just wont.

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Yes, Hans Zimmer certainy does seem to be a great combination, meaning Hans Zimmer and the Pirates of the Caribbean music he's done with Pirates 1, 2 and 3, and also likely will be good with Pirates 4's music as well.

Sean reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-15 00:00:00
Yes, good point you've made there. I couldn't agree with you more on that. About what you said about the trumpet.

Franko reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-14 00:00:00

I know this game.....

First the tracklisting, then the track samples, then the cd itself, then before you know it comes the incessant clamoring for bootleg/DVD ripped copies of the score, or for Zimmer to release his own Expanded edition/exclusive tracks sold on Itunes...One thing leads to another. lol

It never ends, so you might as well just wait it out, man. Seriously. Take my advice and enjoy Rango and Your Highness, which Im doing now. Your Higness especially - it's comparable with the Pirates score because it's so jaunty at times. Cheers.

I like listening to the music only from the soundtrack on cd, i don't use bootleg dvds,dvd ripped copies of the score, or the expanded edition/exclusive tracks, or itunes, etc. I know that the soundtrack of Pirates 4 comes out May 17th, so i am okay with waiting it out for it to be released, but it would be nice to see what the names of the songs are on the soundtrack tracklisting from it at least. Honestly, what you said about the Pirates music, compare to the Rango movie, and Your Highness, the Pirates of the Caribbean music is the best one, meaning the music from all three movies, and i'm sure it will be very very good music in Pirates 4 as well.

Sean get over and wait. Everyone else here is massively anticipating the tracklisting, but you don't see everyone else spamming the comments with 'I wish tracklistings was on here noww!!!'. Grow up and learn to have patience. Seriously, stop being such a damn kid. No one here want's to see you spamming I WANT TRACKLISTINGS NOW. I don't care what your reasons are. The point is, you've said your part, now shut up and wait like everyone else. Seriously.

@Un-named commenter(s)
No, sorry but i will not shut up, if you're going to start telling me to shut up, then i'm going to tell you the exact same thing back to you, which of course is to shut up. So, telling me that, isn't going to get you or anyone else anywhere and it certainly isn't to solve anything so think again there. Also, no i am not a troll, i am just a big fan of this movie franchise, that's all.

@Phlipp B
Thanks for the link to that website, I will check it out :) .

I am wondering about the same thing, regarding Blackbeards theme on the soundtrack.
