Just when we thought there would be no remixes on this soundtrack. The digital release will included a bonus track with this piece of shit track: https://youtu.be/wJDKqkbXIT0  by Dimitri Vegas en Like Mike (those guys who play music with there macbooks and usb sticks.) <br><br>Nobody asked for this track. This is going to the trash once the soundtrack is downloaded on my ipad.I have to admit, that new adventure theme it's stuck in my head all day. Don't know how suddenly popped up into my head.There are a lot of ways to describe the Pirates scores, but "original" or "never heard something like that before", certainly not.Well... Zanelli composed Tia Dalma and the percussive Island music from the past trilogy at the least... also the spaniards theme from OST which was my favorite new theme. <br><br>in a new interview Zanelli explains that he, both directors and Zimmer sat down to decide on the new music, so Zimmer is still present... search the interview in filmmusicmg.comno Eric sorry but there is nothing noticeable in the score for Barbossa. Nothing new i mean :/
Does Barbossa have a theme in Dead Men Tell No Tales?Ok guys, I just saw the movie too, in "avant-premi&#232;re" in France. I must begin by saying i'm a huge fan of PotC since 10 years now, and especially thanks to the music, such original for a "hollywood movie". I remember myself earing the Singapore theme in the theatre, and thinking "ooh my god, I've never heard something like that before ! It's sooo coool !". And, I have never heard anything like this since  in others blockbusters. The scores was very uniques.<br> Since 10 years now i'm a fan of Zimmer too and i know every single note of every Pirate film, and i'm not kidding. <br>So the movie was ok, great beginning, disappointing ending but LET'S TALK ABOUT THE SCORE !!!<br><br>First of all, Zanelli is not Zimmer. It's simple : after watching any pirate movie (even OnStTi) we had a new theme in mind (The Main Theme, the Kraken Theme, Davy Jones, Hoist the Colors, One Day, Up Is Down, Mermaids etc.). Here, we don't. The music "feels pirate" but that's all ; no remarquable new great theme... sorry guys.  Well, the only really remarquable is the Salazar's theme, between The Kraken, BlackBeard and Davy Jones, but we just remember the rock guitar, not the melody ;-(<br><br>It's hard to admit, especially from a fan who expected a lot from Zanelli, but the Soundtrack is just another hollywood soundtrack, barely remarkable, without originality. The greats themes are these from the others movies, the Zimmer's ones. And very often that's almost exactly the same : "Day One" in the beginning ; "Barbossa Is Hungry" or the Beckett's Death music in "I Don't Think Now Is the Best Time" is steel for the climax of potc5...<br><br>So, i'm nor waiting the soundtrack anymore, maybe IF there is some suites in it, but I don't think so... Too Bad. I miss Zimmer and Verbinski ;-(Somebody on Reddit posted that the soundtrack is already on sale at Disneyland.I loved Chappie . Why didn't he worked with the other composers from the film ?It seems to be a feature film I think but why not work with Zimmer again ?
My heart definitely goes out to Zack Snyder, I hope his family will pull through. Regardless of opinion, I think he is an enormously talented director who never got quite as much credit as he deserved.<br><br>Now that Joss Whedon is taking over the finishing touches on Justice League I wonder how this will affect the sound of JXL's music. <br>Where can we find out about deluxe soundtrack releases, for instance if Dunkirk was also released in a "special edition" or whichever, where could I learn or hear about it?Salazar is just another version of Davy Jones and his crew but with no motivation. <br><br>Jerry Bruckheimer -<br><br>Before OST:<br>"Blackbeard is probably the evilest character we've ever had"<br>"It harkens back more the first one."<br>"The beginning of a whole new adventure... a whole new fresh look to the pirates movies"<br>"We've got these two beautiful new characters"<br><br>Before DMTNT<br>"I think Salazar is the head of the family tree of the previous villains. He is the most frightening we’ve ever had because he’s merciless."<br>"What's fresh about this is the fact we're introducing these new characters"<br>"It's so fresh, so different, so scary"<br><br>Well for me sadly it is just a reminder of how great the original trilogy was. The best things in this movie are the returning characters, and the returning love theme from At World's End. Aside from that, it's just like the 4th movie: another forgettable round in the same old attraction. Except this time there are some naval battles, so at least it looks like a pirates movie, which makes it just a little better than the 4th one. But still far, far below the first 3 movies.Just saw the film. Was great by the way, much much beter than On Stranger Tides. Now on the score: I'm not blow away by it (Not all the new theme's are great) BUT... First the new theme for Carina and the stars is by far the best new thing in the pirates soundtrack universe. It's beautiful, something new and adventurous. The new adventure theme is actually a new variation on He's a Pirate or Jack's theme (can't really tell, need to here it again.) which has been used a lot in previous films during the action sequences. First time i heard it, it thought it was a little bit simple and unoriginal but hearing it for a multiple times in the film I really started to like it! It's good they made something new to use during the action sequences instead of the overused he's a pirate or jack's theme, It gives the movie it's own voice.<br><br>Salazar's theme was for me the most dissapointing, it sounded too much like Davy Jones and his crew, also I don't even remember it. Missed opportunity over here. But what really stood out for me are the old themes. Dear lord I got goosebumps at the end when One Day (Will & Elizabeth's theme from Pirates 3) is used, it's emotional and epic. Also the beginning of the movie has a some tragic variations of Will and Elizaberh theme from Pirates 3. Hopefully this will be on the soundtrack! Also somethimes the Marry Me suite is used shortly for Henry during action moments. <br><br>It's amazing to see that these themes, made 10 years ago, still have there effect as they are used in a new movie (it also helpes ofcourse that storylines from At World's End finally pay off in this film) and they are used in a proper way, they always fit the scene in this movie (not like in On Stranger Tides we're theme's are used in scenes that didn't have a connection to it at all). I really hope the score album will make a good represention of this films complete soundtrack, waiting another multiple years for a complete score? (the opening track in this film for exemple, or that short little string piece when Carina appolizes to Henry) I don't think I can do that. Looking forward to friday to hear what they will give us.
Amazon has it listed for this Friday, May 26th.well... yeah. that's the purpose of film music... complement the images, not just being there... I had read that review, but only that critic I've seen trash the music as well...<br><br>But don't go to far.. that's exactly the type of criticism is being thrown at Spielberg/Williams lately.. and if you don't believe me, just search for WarHorse reviews.<br><br>That folkes, are how 80s and 90s film music used to work.Genius, to be fair, the score for At World's End got some, not a lot, but some nasty reviews as well, and for similar "reasons" as well: too loud, too bombastic, saying more than what's happening on the screen, etc. I think we just need to listen to the score and watch the movie to see for ourselves... because if anyone is like me, I love all the scores and movies except for On Stanger Tides... regardless of the poor reviews. I've been wrong before though lol"Geoff Zanelli’s score is one of the most annoying of recent memory, but maybe it’s not the composer’s fault. For slow, dull action scenes he scores loud, propulsive music to make the audience think it’s seeing something that isn’t there. We get the horns of profundity and the strings of sincerity, not to mention the soaring choruses that tell us that grand things are really happening now, oh boy — and that these people are really feeling something — and aren’t we privileged to be swept away on this epic of joy and adventure? . . . And none of it is on the screen."<br><br>...<br><br>" In the midst of all the galloping, carousing and general crazy hysteria of the movie, the score by Geoff Zanelli acts as a metaphor for the movie itself, working so hard to inspire feeling, but sounding like clanging desperation instead."<br><br>Score getting hammered as well. =<br><br><br>Anyone know when the soundtrack will be released? I'd assume the day of the film's release, May 26, but usually the series' soundtracks have been released earlier. I haven't seen anything for the soundtrack on iTunes, which is a bit concerning.

Hybrid, can you upload more unreleased stuff from Atli?


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-06 13:04:57
Like what ?

I mean, I have one rule => 1 cue per project per composer...


So far I think Atli's career is represented quite well ! :)


Anos 2014-06-06 20:57:38
Maybe 2 tracks per Project per Composer?
Like Vantage Point from Atli & one unreleased cue from Henry for Vantage Point?
Because I love Atli's Music from Vantage Point & Hansel & Gretel!!


Lambegue2014-06-07 13:34:21
As much as I understand your desire to have more music, you musn't forget that it takes a lot of time to upload it : Hybrid has been working on it during a long time, and it's not finished yet...So one track per project is alreaddy good :)
Plus, if you love Atli so much, you can still buy his albums.


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-07 14:11:25
Yeah and composers agree with that... My point is not to put the whole scores streaming here... It's a showreel for composers...

FeSe reply Replies: 2 || 2013-07-15 23:24:43
Complete Score please


thejok3rrules2013-07-15 23:38:24
I second this... I don't know why, but I loved the score, even tough I know it was kind of a mess... Well, I guess it happens! I did like Iron Man too, so... :p


T-Mann0362014-01-18 22:14:10
I third that!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 2 || 2013-04-24 15:10:27
And credits for that one ! :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-04-24 17:21:44
And if you want chronological for that one (rough though, some tracks are made of cues not from the same scene, like Trolls Serve Witches) :

Don't Eat The Candy
The Witch Hunters
Business Is Good
White Magic
Lost Children Crying, Vol 2
Augsburg Burns
This Place Could Use A Bit Of Color
You Do The Bleeding
Trolls Serve Witches
Beautiful Story, Don't You Think?
There Are Good Witches In The World
Burn 'em All
Shoot Anything That Moves
Goodbye Muriel
The Fairy Tale

Much better listen imho (as always...)


Jeckyl2013-08-01 00:19:32
Theres a track after the song "the fairy tale" in the movie, it plays on the credits just at the end and lasts for 2:27 an instrumental song with a single female choir. You wouldn't happen to know whats the name of the song?

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2013-02-13 14:44:33
It has no soul. It's only loud as hell.


Stéphane Panchaud2013-02-13 15:05:24
Merci pour toutes votre attention, je sais que ma demande n'a pas trop de chance, je serrai tr&#232;s heureux de travailler pour vous, je suis un compositeur indépendant, je vis en Suisse &#224; Lausanne, j'ai quelque musique de films a mon actif, et beaucoup beaucoup de composition, ma passion et la musique, je compose depuis mon tr&#232;s jeune ages, pour moi la musique et comme un voyage dans un pays que je découvre et qui me réserve des surprise &#224; chaque pas.

Je vous envoies toutes mes meilleurs salutations musicales.

And the Atli one we were talking about ! :)


Ds2013-01-09 00:44:36
Yeah! Didn't know Hans worked on it, it's great.


Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 12:45:36
It will be similar to Henry Jackman's crap for "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter".


Cloud2013-01-09 13:10:56
I hope this will be at least on par with Season of the Witch, which had some pretty great moments.


Edmund Meinerts2013-01-09 14:43:27
Hey, Hybrid, can I have colored text too? Because that sure as hell isn't me. I kind of liked Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, actually.

Anyways, looking forward to this. Atli's underrated. :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-09 15:50:04
Sorry it's for H-Z.com team only ! :(


Looks like there are some funny jokers here. Get a life people !


tomPoland2013-01-11 09:44:01
It looks like Van Helsing, so I hope we will get at least something half as good as Silvestri score.


tomPoland2013-02-12 12:10:55
And I was wrong. For one-time listening only.


Miles2013-02-13 03:37:37
It's exciting and it has its moments, but it's not memorable or well-crafted enough to leave much of a good impression. Hope that Atli gets more demanded of him on his next project.

Ds reply Replies: 4 || 2013-01-24 12:12:03
Bought it on iTunes, it's a cool score. Very agressive, it's really like Atli described it: a mix between classic/gothic "fairy tale" sound and metal.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-24 17:42:59
(note: in answer to a deleted post but I keep this as it gives some information (Damien))

You have it up to Amazon & iTunes, even an amazon link right here on that very page !

Don't act like child...

Anyway, funny that the "Executive Music Producer HANS ZIMMER" comes BEFORE the composer credit on the film poster... Oh well...


El Baradei2013-01-26 17:37:52
Yeah, it's funny... next time Hans Zimmer's name comes before the actors: music by Hans Zimmer, starring Brad Pitt.


Ds2013-01-28 21:53:52
Well i find Hans Zimmer's name more attractive than Brad Pitt or any actor :p


MrZimmerFan (Fan from Spain)2013-01-30 16:40:48
I really like this work by Atli

Miles reply Replies: 3 || 2013-01-16 00:16:04
Amazon has a tracklist and audio clips up! It has contemporary elements which evoke Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but they're more cohesive and listenable here than in the former. There's also some nice quirky and unsettling choral work in Tracks 1, 9, and 13, and Track 12 sounds like what I can only describe as "gothic rock". Definitely looking forward to this!

Funny it's only digital and not even mentioning LLL Records. I wonder if their release will be strictly identical to this... LLL & Digital Bonus Tracks don't exactly match... And their physical release of Mancina's Sorcery was not the exact same as the digital one... We'll see.


Adrian2013-01-18 20:01:08
Amazon is not able to spell either:
Label: Atli Orvesson ?!
