Oh dear . Where is the theme ?Comes across very likeable and enthusiastic.Now I'm even more excited!I'm on track 9 at the moment. Nothing especially memorable so far, but I do love the return of the Love Theme and Hoist the Colors.<br><br>Salazar's theme isn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it does seem to get repetative quickly. Hopefully the score isn't as blatantly bad on-screen as OST was. That film and score was a mess.Cool insight on POTC 5 !
Now that the album is out there I can easily say that I love this score. Definitely my 2nd favorite behind MoS. <br><br>Musically, much of it has that "Last Samurai/Transformers" power anthem style (with one of the themes sounding like King Arthur) but with RGW's string writing style as opposed to the bass heavy approach of those scores. The WW cello theme isn't used a whole lot, but when it gets some screen time it feels earned, and steals the show. The villain material is the weakest part, but instrumentally is pretty cool with the incorporation of the cimbalom (it reminds me slightly of Sherlock at points)<br><br>Overall, easily one of the best scores so far this year.Hans has not done this one because he was working on dunkirk at the time as far as I know. I saw the movie last night and for sure things like "What shall we die for", "One day", "Jack Sparrow", the legendary "He's a pirate" or even the bit of the musical clock/bell theme from davy jones and Calypso at the VERY end of the film are things that Hans wrote of course. In the movie itself you hear this stuff very often especially in the first hour of the movie which is packed with old themes. But Geoff Zanelli still wrote the other 60%/65% of the music so I can imagine that Hans said that they can give it to Zanelli because even if most of the themes are from Hans, he was most likely not heavily involved at the writing and scoring process. He was most likely there at the beginning of the process like Zanelli said in an interview and made sure that this story needed things like one day or the medallion calls. And he is not credited because of the fact that he was doing dunkirk and for sure his live tour and so he was like mentioned before only there at the beginning of the process and wrote/refined the new versions of one day or he's a pirate if he did anything. But i thought as well that they could have mentioned him in the credits like they mentioned Zanelly or even Steve Jablonsky in the credits of the first one or John Williams at Rogue One.I missed that, sorry! I agree with your other comment.<br><br>Jackman's contribution to the 2nd half of love suite, his rollicking orchestral mayhem in "I don't know if now is the best time" provide plenty of evidence of him imposing his style effectively on the material. <br>"Going back to ground 0" doesn't mean "make a poor movie".<br>I would like more Pirates movies, but not if they make them as bad as the 4th and 5th ones. They could have written an original story (I'm sure there are good writers out there who could have found something fresh) and started a new adventure just like the 2nd and 3rd movies did. It's not impossible.<br>But rather they just tried to remake the 1st movie. If they did it for the 5th one, why do you think they wouldn't do it for the 6th one? Judging by the post-credit scene, they are clearly not afraid of ripping off the previous movies even more... :-DHi Hans!<br><br>Your scores helped me pass through difficult times, in life.<br>Never heard music that touches me so deep inside.<br>Thanks - to you and your Team - and go on like this.<br>When do you come to Germany with your Team (live in concert)?<br><br>If you like to answer: atlantis42195@gmail.com<br>------------------------------------------<br>Hallo Hans!<br><br>Ein dickes Lob an Sie und Ihr Team.<br>Ihre Musik half mir, durch schwere Zeiten im Leben zu kommen.<br>Nie zuvor kannte ich Musik, welche mich derart berührt.<br>Wann kommen Sie wieder nach Deutschland, mit Ihrem Team?<br><br>Weiter so und beste Grüße, aus Düsseldorf!<br>Falls Sie antworten möchten:atlantis42195@gmail.com<br><br>Jill W.<br>
Yeah... I know what you mean...<br><br>First of all, I want this movie to be a fun ride. I cannot ask of it what I would ask of a Nolan production, for once. But I know I cannot ask of this movie what I would ask of a 2nd or a 3rd part. I say this because since DMTNT begins production they (producers) hinted it was the BEGINNING of a new adventure, So they had to go back to "ground 0". And is not too difficult to guess that they'd try the Star Wars formula; POTC 5 is basically Force Awakens in its intentions at the least.<br><br>So what really put me off is the fact that all this hate will only cause to not greenlit more adventures :( , because, well.. apparently audience doesn't want this dessert anymore.If that cheesy ending was "so so cool", it's just because it's a powerful reminder of how beautiful the 3rd movie was. And even more so in comparison to this dreadful 5th outing.Yeah I made a shitty suite ! :( :( :( lolLots of people complaining about the film and the score, makes me a little bit irritated. Of course this was never gonna reach the level of the first films. It never will be, it's been 10 years. I am a hugh fan of these films and after watching the new film I felt so good. That cheesy ending was actually so so cool. The movie wasn't perfect put they did some good things in it. I haven't heard this album yet but I listened to the samples and everything I wanted on this album, I did hear those parts in the samples. Afterwards I was humming that new adventure theme all day, even how unoriginal it is. It's cool and Carina's theme is a great new addition. This score is much than On Stranger Tides maybe think about that. Let this score grow on you. Most people now base their opinion on just this suite. Honestly ? It doens't reflect the score that well.I have yet to listen to the score, and I will after see the movie because I want to experience it on the movie itself first.<br><br>But if you read the very insightful interview with Zanelli for filmmusicamg, he talks about the "differences" between composers at RCP, and when Zimmer liked something of Zenelli its because, in Zimmer's words "it sounds so Geoff" (I think he was racalling it about Tia Dalma's theme and the tribal island music from DMC). So I think is kind of unfair to expect Geoff's music to sound very Zimmer's, realistically speaking. <br><br>I've been listening Zanelli's scores a few years now, and I think I Identify his style and his type os themes, which are not like Zimmer`s at all (talking about notes specifically)... so based on his scores I expect this to be a very Geoff Zanelli score leaning to POTC style and just a little of Zimmer.<br><br>You can see the differences in the OST album, just listen on what Zimmer composed and the listen the Spaniard's theme, which is by Zanelli.
Actually, iii, I expressed similar sentiments to yours in a reply below this post. :) Hans' absence is definitely felt. <br><br>As for Jackman vs. Zanelli, I'm not sure the two can be fairly compared. Yes, Henry made interesting arrangements, but most of what he did was the love theme from POTC 3. Zanelli, on the other hand, has worked on all four films and written a couple themes. So I feel like Jackman would have had to work on more for us to really say whether he's the stronger composer for the franchise.'I think they couldn't have picked a better composer than Geoff in Hans' absence'<br><br>I disagree, Mike. The strongest arrangements of Hans' material in the franchise were Henry Jackman. <br><br>'some would argue Geoff wasn't properly credited when Hans was in charge.'<br><br>'some' would be wrong. Geoff Zanelli was credited as an additional music arranger because that's what he did. The weakness of this score's ideas in comparison to particularly the third one speaks to the importance of the primary composer. There is nothing in this score the equivalent of "Marry Me" or "Hoist the Colors" or "Jack Sparrow" or "The Kraken" or even "Mermaids". <br><br>The score misses Zimmer big time, but I suspect if the film had looked interesting he might've been tempted back. The reality is Hans (love it or hate it) has a strong musical voice and you can feel its absence. <br><br>The main new theme is boring and the dreary cello version in the end credits is a completely over-used sound these days. And the mix of the whole score is appalling - even worse than On Stranger Tides flat soundscape. How did they manage to make a 100 piece orchestra sound like a demo for an off the shelf sample library? <br><br>Everything is just another backwards step. <br>Wow! 78 minutes of score! Cool.Man, I loved this movie.Hm, Angel On The Wing sounds a lot like the Cerberus theme from Mass Effect 2.

@Hybrid

The track jamie's debt in the player is shorter than the ost version. is this an edit of the ost track or is it a rip from the show?

I just wanted to say how much I love Djawadi's work! I've not listened to much of his music in the past but after having seen 3 seasons of GoT I'm blown away. I can't speak for all of his music of course but his game of thrones music is amazing. He has really captured the world of GOT with his music. It fits so perfectly to the show! Oh and Mhysa just has everything!

Was sure "Mhysa" would close episode 10! Outstanding work from Ramin.

Great, now he starts ripping of Lorne Balfe his sound. Sigh, this guy keeps on sinking beneath the depths of the ocean floor...


Macejko2013-06-04 22:45:32
Balfe doesn't even HAVE a sound. He is less than nothing compared to Djawadi. In fact, most of RCP composers should learn from him in the matter of developing and re-orchestrating a theme.


Macejko2013-06-04 22:46:40
*learn from Djawadi


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-09 10:47:51
Your raging hard-on for anything Djawadi-related continues to amuse and bemuse me, Macejko. To my ears he isn't significantly better or worse than Balfe, and both of them are nowhere near the most interesting composers to come out of RCP...they can't hold a candle to John Powell, Mark Mancina or Steve Jablonsky (on his good days), let alone Hans himself.

That said, "Mhysa" IS an amazing cue. ;)


Anonymous2013-06-09 12:48:00
Jablonsky? It had been aaaaaaaages since he did something memorable....


Trent Easton Navarro2013-06-09 14:12:33
Pain and Gain was a great score, one of this year's finest


Ds2013-06-09 14:17:57
Agree with Trent Easton Navarro: "Pain & Gain" is a really good work from Jablonsky. A score doesn't need to be "epic" to be good ;-)


MrZimmerFan2013-06-09 14:35:28
I'm with you, Ds and Trent, Pain & Gain is one of the best works of Jablonsky, it works very well in the movie

"Mhysa" is just... beyond words. Incredible.

A Lannister always pays his Debts. I find this song even better! Played in the start of the Red wedding scene, Amazing Lannister theme!

I don't understand "The Bear And The Maiden Fair".
I think it's weird they put a rock song like this in the series and soundtrack. Other than that, the album is great. "Mhysa" is absolutely outstanding!!!

Macejko reply Replies: 0 || 2013-06-05 15:48:51
Ok, more complex thoughts.
I love it. I even like the themes I didn't like in the show itself, like "Dracarys", for example. I am constantly getting surprised how Ramin can work with the previously composed themes - rearranging them, changing them. Take for example "A Lannister Always Pays His Debts". It changed "The Rains of Castamere" (which was very sad and moody tune) to epic and heroic new motif for Jaime Lannister. Or "Mhysa", which is a new take on Daenerys' theme. We already heard that theme in "Finale" (season 1) and "Mother of Dragons". This time he used choir, and once again completely changed the way that theme feels (and it feels like something out of this world, as I already pointed out). And there's so much more, like the raw, chilling brutality in "The Lannisters Send Their Regards". I simply admire Ramin.
But of course, the score is not absolutely perfect. It lacks some music I wanted to hear, like the theme playing when Catelyn talks about Jon Snow, or the music playing during Jaime/Brienne and Beric/The Hound duels. Also, there is Kerry Ingram's song. I can't help it, but it feels like an unnecessary, pointless filler to me.
My final verdict is strong 8/10.

Yeah, they were a bit proud of Ramin as belongs to his native home, like in the same way they were proud of the vocalist Azam Ali.. No problem

It's funny how the covers for RCP soundtrack have changed. Now they seem to prefer some "design" pictures with only logos (TDKR, MoS, PotC4, The Lone Ranger). A few years ago they were always using adapted movie posters.

Macejko reply Replies: 1 || 2013-05-31 00:10:05
Normally I would be excited as hell, but as I already said - judging by the show itself, there is very little of new material.


Macejko2013-05-31 00:14:43
Also, it's curious that this one is being released by WaterTower, when the previous two were done by Varése Sarabande.
