 FAN COMMENTS
Because that opinion is clearly wrong when Dunkirk came out in 2017.The douchebag with the fucked up hairline known as Hybrid soldier erased my previous comment because i said Zimmer barely writes his own music. Can't even have an opinion on this website anymore? It's like I was bashing him or said anything terrible.I can't agree with Genius: Picasso. I like the score, but it doesn't have enough direction. Just a lot of soundscaping. It is like the score is just there. <br><br>Balfe has this same problem with a lot of his scores.<br><br>I am so tire of people claiming Balfe has potential. It is like a basketball fan constantly claiming that Player X is two years away from being two years away. Every year people say Balfe is going to do something great. I am still waiting for this. That said, I haven't listened to MI:6 yet.Christopher Nolan of music? You serious? You compare Balfe with Nolan, one of the most talented directors of this generation? Nolan always does his own shit. He doesn't tempt scenes from other movies and recolor them and call them his. <br><br>Has Balfe written a great score that is truly his own yet? Maybe I just haven't heard it. <br><br>The only thing Balfe and Nolan has in common is that they are both white and they are both British.So I've finally decided to give this a listen today, and it was a lot of fun! The general quirkiness, source cues that actually benefit the score, and one of the best themes that I've heard from Zimmer in Moriarty certainly make this one a keeper. A lot of people barp on the OST, but it certainly made me interested to hear the music in a better form. I'll probably have to listen to it again before forming a definitive opinion, but as is, it managed to actually live up to the hype.
Music By Harry Gregson-Williams<br>Additional Music By Stephanie Economou<br>Music Supervisor By Jabari AliTotally phoned in...I got nothing from this...Y'know, up until recently, I also thought Lorne was one of the least interesting RCP composer next to Junkie XL. Then I listened to Genius: Picasso (because of that one Balfe troll's recommendation interestingly enough), and now I see enormous potential in him. That is one of the most interesting television scores I've heard so far. The orchestrations and overall complexity is an enormous achievement for Lorne and shows that he can do much more than generic sample composition. <br><br>I'll probably skip this score because I have no interest in Mission Impossible, but I have a lot more interest in Balfe's career now thanks to his work on Genius: Picasso. If he continues on that level of composing, he may actually get some notoriety.Um.....guys, why are we acting like Kraemer doesn't have the skill to do a different sort of score? I'm fairly positive Jack Reacher doesn't sound anything like RN. Really, the reason he wasn't brought in was because, apparently, McQuarrie was pissed that he was overruled in how he wanted the film to sound, so be deliberately chose not to hire him this time. Purely a thing of spite. And a lot of the disappointment lies in those who normally don't pay attention to film music, which shows just how special that particular score was.<br><br>Really, I'm confident that had McQ had his way this time, and with Kraemer on board, he would've made something that did fit the new tone of the film. Composers should be able to challenge themselves to do something that is out of their comfort. Which is likely why a lot of Zimmer scores are the way they are, since he's allowed to differentiate every once and a while.<br><br>As is, with this logic, Cruise should not have hired McQ again if he wanted a different kind of movie for Fallout.Hot take: Cruise saying that Fallout is the best score in the franchise is the equivalent of Danny Elfman saying there is only one Batman theme. Just marketing tricks to get one more excited.<br><br>Me personally, the general M:I sound isn't something I tend to get excited for, though I definitely acknowledge it's objectively well done. With M:I-2 though, while it's technically dated and incredibly cheesy, I admire it for those reasons, and is incredibly fun for me. Not to mention that the Spanish guitar is a lovely touch, and Injection is proof that there is more to Zimmer than some might think.<br><br>Balfe as a composer, to me, seems like tbe sort of guy who's told to get synth that fit the film well enough, and call it a day. Sure, there's one or two scores that go above and beyond to actually be something of note, but otherwise he's among the least interesting of the RCP bunch. Feel free to feel however you want, but that's my two cents.<br><br>It's frustrating that you have to deal with some of the touchier fans Edmund, but I'll admit that I do get a laugh everytime it happens. I love music, but I don't feel the need to get overly defensive about. I would just enjoy it and leave it like that.
Meh on this one...Listening to it doesn't really do much for me. Maybe because I dont care for Cruise, or MIssion Impossible, or maybe because I already heard better from Inception and Fury Road....Even on last year's Dunkirk Hans wrote 90% of it. Unless you are born in the last few months there is plenty of music which Hans wrote and many can remember.Interstellar is barely 3 years old.SamualPF - there people go again misconstruing my comments about some of the posters here as negative comments against Balfe or his music. I didn't say anything about the score. But sure, keep pushing that agenda.<br><br>George, you make fair, well-articulated points and for what it's worth, I never included you among those who have, shall we say, aroused my suspicions. I'm looking forward to checking out the score for myself and rest assured I'll give it a fair shake when I do. I've liked plenty of Balfe scores in the past, I swear I'm not a hater! :pNone of Kraemerís music is reused! Thematic consistency says what?
I actually always listen to a new score with an open mind. If I start expecting something and the score doesn't sound like it or doesn't have a certain thing in it I will always be dissappointed. If I don't expect anything and it turns out a score is a dissappointment, it's not such a big deal.<br><br>For example:<br>A lot of people wanted/expected a lot of individual hero themes in Infinity War. I didn't think it was necessary and I'm absolutely in love with the score.<br><br>And in the cause of reprising themes from 30+ different character in a score of 2 hours would have been chaos. If you're talking about LOTR and themes, that's different story. Those scores were almost all 3 or 4 hours.<br><br>But all and all. I don't think this is a better score than RN, but I don't think it's a bad score. It fits the movie, and I think that's what a score is all aboutEdmund ........<br><br>Yet again another negative comment about Balfe based on no fact . Sums you up really . The fact Tom Cruise who has produced the franchise has said he thinks is the best means something .we all get it that you donít like his music but simply contain yourself for always wanting to make pointless comments about him .<br><br>The reviews have been amazing for he filmmand Balfes scores . This may irritate you but at least watch the film and listen to the score then give a proper opinion.give it a goNo offense, Edmund, but if you havenít listened to it then donít make a judgement call on those of us that like it. Fallout in my opinion is the only really good RCP blockbuster score this year, and Iím going to voice my opinion on that. Pacific Rim, Tomb Raider, wrinkle in time, and Skyscraper have all been disappointments for me so when this surprisingly came out two weeks early, and I surprisingly liked it, then of course Iím going to ďflock overĒ and tell you all about how I feel. <br><br>Reviewers liking it is fun for those of us that like it. Tom cruise, who actually IS known to like film scores and has been to concerts for film scores (like Brian Tyler, even though Iím not crazy about him), liking it is also exciting for those of us that like this score and also for us who were excited to hear an updated RCP take on Mission Impossible. I root for all the RCP composers to succeed and create something memorable, and when others seem to like that too then Iím going to comment on it.<br><br>Whether it was Lorne Balfe, Henry Jackman, Ramin Djawadi, or Hans himself who scored this I would have been one of the first to tell you all if I liked it. And if I hated it I would also have voiced my disappointment... but simply put I was not disappointed and Iím glad that others are liking it, including reviewers and Tom Cruise.Once again, and not for the first time on this site, I can't help get the feeling that a Lorne Balfe score page is getting brigaded. Seems like every time he puts a new score out, a bunch of people flock to the page with glowingly positive comments (and brooking not even the slightest criticism), frequently from irregular users with very generic names who don't ever post in threads by other composers. And then using weak, tired arguments like "the reviewers love it" (I trust film reviewers on scores about as far as I can throw them) or "Tom Cruise said it's the best" (and since when is Cruise an authority on film scoring?) or "this is a new/modern/DARK M:I movie" (no excuse for a bad score). It feels, quite frankly, like shilling.<br><br>Disclaimer: haven't actually heard the score, I'm making no judgment on the music itself here. This is merely an observation of the posting patterns here.Iím right there with you. I definitely think Balfe is very talented, although heís far from one of the best composers out there. Especially compared to Zimmer.<br><br>That being said, Iím not crazy about MI:2. The highlights are solid (Injection and Bare Island especially) but I find most of the score either schizophrenic or just not as developed as the scores that influence it. Sorta like how everybody loves ďThe RingĒ but I canít personally canít help but hear it as a lesser version of Hannibal.

Hybrid, thereís a cool organ variation of Davy Joneís theme in the film that comes right before Liarís Dice, although I donít see it listed here. Is it mixed in with another unreleased cue or is it not on the list at all?

Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!


Rafael2018-05-20 15:19:52
Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.

Poisonheadcrab reply Replies: 7 || 2018-02-12 14:39:35
You seem to have a good amount of cues streaming on here along with some good unreleased bits. I'm just wondering if you could upload a little more. I am not asking you to put the entire score on here, just a handful of cues.

The tracks I'm most interested in
-Swann Helps Elizabeth/Elizabeth Threatens Beckett

-Jack Shows Will The Cloth

-The Dutchman Appears

Concerning Alternate Tracks:
I'm am very interested in a lot of the Alternates listed here and would like to be able to hear some of them. Again, I'm not asking you to upload every single one, just ones that sound significantly different than their counterparts, if it's just the same cue with slightly different orchestration then there is no need to bother.


Mike (OTM)2018-02-12 22:05:06
Well the way Hybrid has been doing it so far, he uploads one track for each composer to highlight their contributions. But you know, a general sampling isnít a bad idea..


Iamtommie2018-02-12 22:47:58
I don't think Hybrid is going to upload those tracks because they're simply not available anywhere. And there are a lot of people looking for it. Just like the missing cues for At World's End.


Medigo2018-02-13 01:03:39
I wasnt aware AWE even had missing cues, outside of post-session film edits


superultramegaa2018-02-13 03:58:11
Well the main cue that's missing from At World's End for me, is Will and Bootstrap. Yes there's an SFX filled one, but I've never found a clean version of that track. Yet it's listed on this site and even has a Lorne Balfe credit. Not sure where Hybrid got that, but I'd love that one.


Poisonheadcrab2018-02-13 07:14:15
There is also the "New Love Suite" which is likely what the Treasure collection Suite "Marry Me" is based on.


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-13 10:11:05
I doubt "New Love Suite" is substantially different from "Marry Me", if at all.


Poisonheadcrab2018-02-13 13:12:46
@-Edmund Meinerts

Pirates Day One, Just Good Business & Hoist The Colors Suite contain the same basic structure as their original counterparts albeit re-orchestrated and/or shortened. Marry Me could very well be a slightly altered version of the original suite but since I haven't heard the original I can't say for sure.

Iamtommie reply Replies: 0 || 2017-03-24 20:44:20
Hybrid, it's been a while since somebody asked but in Dead Man's Chest there are 18 missing cues on a grand total of 15 minutes. In At World's End there are 2 missing cues of gramd total of 5 minutes.

My question is if you know if they are ever going to be released??
Thanks very much

and, what i can called it now ! unrelesed tracks or Hybrid@ you know the tracks titles from music sheets !!


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-26 16:15:46
I reconstructed the POTC 2 & 3 (partial for 3) cue lists myself. Was a long and hard work. The original files came without titles, just "1m1, 1m2, 1m3...", and if you're all getting something clean like this, it's because I spent some time on it... Pirates have no secrets for me ! :)

What of Hans Zimmer is there in the "Climbing Up" cue? His name is under it, but I don't hear any of his themes in there...


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-04 23:18:52
Well the core of the cue is actually a rearranged version of the "Gladiator ripoff" from POTC 1... That's why... lol

Anonymous reply Replies: 1 || 2014-10-16 16:01:55
What did Hans Zimmer write in the Haunted Dress cue? I didn't hear any of his themes is all.


Mike2014-10-16 16:11:44
He probably wrote the core cue, because it was also in POTC4 and there's no reference to Trevor Morris on that OST's page. So my guess is Hans wrote the cue and Trevor Morris just did a slight rearrangement or addition.

may i ask who determines who does which cues? and what determines whether HZ does a cue by himself?


Lambegue2014-04-04 19:32:14
Usually, Zimmer writes musical suites, that is to say pieces of music inspired by the film, but not written to match a precise scene : in this case, the suites are "Jack Sparrow theme", "Davy Jones theme" and "Kraken theme", plus all that was remaining from the first movie.
Then, the additionnal composers take the suites, arrange and edit them (or even write some new music based more or less closely on the suites) to match the picture. I think all this is mainly organized by Zimmer, even if there is probably quite a lot of discussion between the members of the crew in order to determine who does what. Sometimes, it seems as if Zimmer himself does some cues for the picture, but I don't think it is such a frequent thing...But again, I'm not the one who knows best about this on this site.

Looks like we will never have that pure organ version of the Kraken theme :(

I assume Hans is responsible for the "Lord Cutler Beckett" suite from the next film, but did he compose the little snippets of the Beckett theme heard in here?


Areozz2013-06-01 22:59:39
The "Lord Cutler Beckett" suite was actually written for Dead Man's Chest. Much like the "Jack Sparrow" suite found on DMC's OST, this Beckett suite explores all the aspects of Beckett's theme. It IS the origin of all the little snippets of the Beckett theme heard in here. It's a shame that such a large portion of the Beckett suite never saw any use in the movies, though.


Mike2013-06-02 02:59:33
That may very well be correct, but the Beckett suite isn't listed on this page. It's on the AWE page.


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-02 18:39:36
I'm pretty sure that the suite was written for AWE. The only aspect of the Cutler Beckett theme heard in DMC is the three-note rising ostinato (1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2), whereas all of the other aspects of the theme don't come into play until AWE.


NM2013-06-03 22:27:47
The Cutler Beckett theme is really good. Pity there were no theme suites for OST. Surely the 5 minutes of Mermaids isn't all Hans wrote for that one?


Mike2013-06-03 23:55:46
No theme suites? If you by the Treasures Collection you get:

Cutler Becket
Pirate Lord of Singapore
Just Good Business
The Heart of Davy Jones
Marry Me
A demo of the Pirates theme
A demo of Jack Sparrow's theme


Areozz2013-06-04 00:43:43
OST, here, stands for "On Stranger Tides". NM was asking if there were any suites for Pirates 4 outside of the Mermaids suite. I would expect not, given all the complications that score had. All of the new themes introduced in Pirates 4 play basically in their entirety in any one place that they appear (slight exaggeration) so there wouldn't be much more in a suite.


Mike2013-06-04 00:47:27
Ah, I see. Aren't Blackbeard and Angelica theme suites?


Areozz2013-06-04 01:06:10
Blackbeard? On the original soundtrack? I guess if you want to, you could call it a suite. It's only composed of three cues that just happen to contain Blackbeard's theme and that were somewhat lazily mixed together: cue #1 is Blackbeard's introduction, cue #2 is Blackbeard's demise, and cue #3 is the one named "Fry The Cook".

And again, with "Angelica": I guess you could call it a suite, but technically, I don't think it is even Pirates music. The very basics of the theme were maybe written by Zimmer, but the music was done by Rodrigo y Gabriella, whose names appear precisely nowhere in the credits accompanying the Pirates 4 demos.

And again, Hans ALONE arranged one of the best cues in the film (AWE's was "Trying to Get Lost", DMC's is "Abandon Ship - Jack's Demise"). So with due respect, if you say Hans has lost it, you don't know what you're talking about! :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-28 10:44:00
Yes, but this was seven years ago now. The people who tend to say Hans has lost it are talking about the last few years. And I must admit that sometimes I do think that to myself, because he hasn't really wowed me in a while - Inception and TDKR are in that drony pseudo-intellectual not-so-thematic style of his I don't like much (though they both have good individual moments) and SH2 and PotC 4 were shameful followups to good or even excellent scores, to name the bigger efforts. Hopefully Man of Steel will bring back a bit of that spark I've misseed from him lately.


Ds2013-05-28 13:36:16
I'm sure it will. From what we've heard MoS looks like a good mix of the old melodic Zimmer themes and the sharp, violent sound of TDKR.


Mike2013-05-28 19:45:39
I'm thinking Man of Steel will be something great, particularly with the film. But I'm going to remain slightly skeptical for now, just in case. :P


Anonymous2013-05-28 19:59:20
Hybrid, do you know, out of curiosity, why it is that Hans has other people arrange most of the film cues? Does he want to give the other composers experience? Is he too busy? I'm just wondering.

@Hybrid: Where does the track "Wheel of Fortune" from Lorne Balfe's website fit in on this track list?


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-30 15:03:22
The cue on Lorne's site is "Climbing Up" (despite its name there, though the names on the site are mostly random titles).

Should be 3m19C or 3m20... :P


Peter2012-12-30 17:01:40
You're right ; Hybrid you add this track (3m19?) Climping Up from LB'Site to the track, but this track isn't in the recording sessions release, i don't know why ? we can add it and the quality is the same to the RE.SE.


Jimmer2012-12-31 13:46:04
@Hybrid: Ok. Thanks Hybrid. Grateful for your work and effort. And if you have the composer list for At World's End (Expanded Score) that'd be incredible too :-)


Mike2013-01-01 01:25:34
He already gave the credits to POTC3 on the AWE expanded score's page. Look in the comments. ;)


Mark2013-03-21 14:13:43
Too bad it's just expanded and missing a lot of music :( - best of the 4 scores
