How much excitement here is there for this? These two composers must have hit out of the trash bin this time.Isn't it funny how embarassingly neoliberalist Hans Zimmer is nowadays? Back in the 1990s he was a socially conscious activist. Next - what up - a Trump fanfare, A Paul Ryan shame boogie. Nothing would be surprising for this corporate version of a composer I used to love.Some good music here but would be so much better if Zimmer hadn't had to homogenize it all again. He is a shameful corporation.I defend a guy who is being a rare voice of moderation around here and now I'm the childish one. That about sums up the readership at this site. At least, a significant proportion of it. I didn't even say anything about whether I like Balfe or not. I actually do like him a fair amount. But anything short of God-worship and mass human sacrifice at the holy feet of the Mighty Lorne is insufficiently devout for the likes of you guys, huh?<br><br>Again, attempting any sort of nuanced discussion is a total waste of time around here these days.AntoMia - or Balfe's assistant - stop making silly comments. If this is the best music to a TV show in ages, you haven't watched any tv shows
At the end of the day, the Zimmer style for Batman is now done. It had its ten years of glory but now sounds like bad advertising music as all of Hans' music tends to do after its cycle runs out. <br><br>Junkie does not have the skills to come up with a new style nor do any of the lackies Hans employs currently. <br><br>Good at doing additional, terrible at anything original.<br><br>Think back to the days of Powell etc and now we have Krazcynski. Fuck.<br><br>The Hans factory is dying finally. This is a positive thing for film art as Balfe was the epitomy of a drone/clone composer and now the industry is catching up. <br><br>They can get either a computer/Balfe to do the same thing or find someone who has actual skills and talent. <br><br>Maybe we can finally get some real composition here.Having your name in the credits does not mean you have been artistically involved. The Lorne Balfe empty monicker now translates to this message: 'cheap Zimmer emulation Zimmer was not bothered to do but sent his coffee boy to look after. There is no orchestra, samples are from 2002 as recent ones cost actual money.'Anonymous apologises - Marejko seems to support Trump and the NRA. Well, if you do, prepare for a tsunami of young people who are not as thick and selfish as you in their worldview. And if you support these organisations, shame on you as a coward. <br><br>“why the fuck are you having a go at Ian”<br><br>Edmund just chill !!!!!!!! <br><br>In other news ... Happy Birthday BalfeMy degree from a conservatory in Cocksville, Tennessee, allows me to authoritative. Suck on my balls as I am not Cartman, at all.
I am so lonely. Please do not abandon me. Why you so nasty. Me not nasty. Can I be friend with you?Edmund give it a rest .We all get the point that you don’t think Balfe is great but go away and listen to How To Train Your Dragon on loop.You come off very childish.Therenis nothing wrong with the argument about the Emmys either.You May not like it because it shows you thoughts are in the minority......thankfully.most importantly ——/ Happy Birthday MeastroMarejcko here sounds like a Daily Mail reader off his medication. If you cannot understand the difference between Shore's nuanced approach to orchestal music and Djawadi's instrumental approach, I suppose it is the same as explaining Brexit to a Daily Mail reading ape and someone with an ability to think. Or, to take it from the other perspective, Fox News to anyone with a brain. <br><br>By the way, it is not a great argument to say that 90% of listeners will miss the nuances. Most people have better brains than you do - I suppose you support the RNA as well with your level of cognitive ability and intelligence. If you do, you are an inhuman.<br>I love LotR music, but the superior "development" and "complexity" that the buffoon above me is referring to basically translates to "now the theme is being played by six violins instead of seven, because one of the characters just died", which is just super-duper noticeable, if you catch my drift. <br><br>In the meantime, Djawadi manages a complete tonal shift from adventurous to dark and ominous (Needle - House of Black and White), from royal and grandious to bloody and brutal (King's Arrival - The Throne Is Mine), and combining the themes in ways Shore hasn't even attempted.<br><br>I love these posh music-savvy professionals straight from conservatory in Cocksville, Tennessee, telling us mere peasants that our tastes suck because if you listen very very carefully, you will notice that one of the choir members in O3:47 just scratched his balls, which of course signfies the internal turmoil Frodo is in.<br><br>I will say it again - I love LotR music. But thematic nuances my ass. Even intent listeners would miss about 90% of them - so much so they might be on many occassions downright nonexistent - and even if you do notice, the entire experience just boils down to "oh, the theme is now being played slightly differently, I guess that's kinda cool, in a way, maybe". There has never been a radical transformation or combination of themes in a way Djawadi does it. "Playing a more somber version of the Fellowship theme", or whatever else you may say to justify putting Shore on a higher pedestal than Djawadi, simply doesn't cut it. All of it serves just as a pointless piece of trivia,  being used by stuck-up smellers of their own farts to appear mighty and knowledgeable.<br>To even compare Djawadi and Shore in complexity is offensive. I presume you haven't actually bothered reading Doug Adams' book on the thematic nuances of The Lord of the Rings? Djawadi employs tiny little nuggets of melody as themes that he recycles verbatim every time. There is no variation. <br><br>The Lord of the Rings is based on an extensive amount of thematic development which, absolutely, is missing in Game of Thrones.<br> <br>Certainly, Shore's work is not as nuanced in development as, let's say, Williams with Star Wars, but to compare his extensively detailed emphatically organic and orchestrally and instrumentally complex work to Djawadi using a cello and a bank of samples is offensive. <br><br>Again, some of the choral music is fine but very basic in both harmony and application, and again, let down by the cheapness of the samples underlying them. <br>
The Game of Thrones scores do have their strengths but they're a long, long, long way from Lord of the Rings...Michael, why the fuck are you having a go at Ian when he literally said in the comment above yours "his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO"? People aren't complaining about you fanboys for liking Balfe's work, they're complaining about you flying off the rails about nothing.<br><br>"He's been nominated for awards so he must be good" - worst argument ever.Listen to Ghost in the Shell. If you can come back here with a straight face and call Balfe a musical hack makes you a baboon humping cuck-monger. Balfe's talent and contribution is so incredibly apparent. If you can't hear that, you couldn't hear a dump truck drive through a nitroglycerin plant.Ummm the entirety of the Game of Thrones soundtracks show that Djawadi has many strengths both as a composer and a "theme man" or whatever. Game of Thrones has a soundtrack that is comparable to that of Lord of the Rings - not as memorable, but both LoTR and GoT have phenomenal soundtracks with memorable themes that describe the worlds depicted in each respective franchise. Each soundtrack has themes depicting different cultures, groups of people, characters or complex ideas. While GoT soundtrack isn't as beloved as the LoTR score, they share those qualities. So no, Djawadi is no weak composer.Ian - do you honestly think Genius or Churchill are no good !!!!!this site  is so weird.when people slag of Balfe it’s okay but we dare say he is actually good then people get mad about it .Bit pathetic.The guy has been nominated twice for an Emmy so can’t be that bad!Haters give it a rest and get a life please and let us fans just enjoy the music

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 isn’t 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

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

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.

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.

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
