Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.Maybe you have a download link?Download link?I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be fun
I love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says'<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cue
Lorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(
Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.

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.
