It's not in the OST release... :/Do anyone know what was that soundtrack that plays at opening scene? There where The Flying Dutchman rises from the sea, adn will and Henry have a little discourse. I think it`s some variation of "one day".I love this musicStill doesn't beat Lego Batman for best soundtrack this year. But a close secondI saw the movie tonight and I think that the music is great on the album, but in the movie it's fantastic. It gives something special and something extra to a lot of scenes. I think Zanelli did a great job on the score, with the use if new and old themes.
"This is the best score of the franchise since At World's End."<br><br>Watch out you don't trip over that low bar. ;)Maybe because it is IDENTICAL the another theme of the same series?I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will soon, but I've heard the soundtrack and I have only one thing to say. This is the best score of the franchise since At World's End. I had tears in my eyes every time an old theme played. I liked the score for On Stranger Tides, but I didn't like how it relied too much on older themes. I appreciate this score for not using the Ship battle theme and the rolling cage chase motif which I'm kinda tired of hearing them. I love the clever use of One Day as a theme for Henry Turner. Of course, everytime Jack's Themes (both the intro theme, the cello theme, and his DMC theme) and He's A Pirate show up, I can't help but smile and jump up and down. What about the new stuff? A lot of people have criticized Salazar's Theme for sounding like Blackbeard. It does don't get me wrong, but Zanelli isn't the first person to do this. The Winter Soldier is derived from Why So Serious. Optimus Prime's theme is IDENTICAL to the Knights March from King Arthur. Discombobulate from Sherlock Holmes, Absurdity from The Lone Ranger, and The Red Capes Are Coming from Batman v. Superman ALL SOUND THE SAME. They're awesome, but similar. Why is it so bad now? I like the rock elements in Salazar's theme and it makes it quite scary. Carina's Theme (The Brightest Star in the North) is also the main theme of the movie and it is perfect beyond belief. Her theme very much resembles past love themes, but it has a sense of herorism to it. I always gravitate to composer's themes for female characters (John Williams with my girls from Star Wars). The new adventure theme is epic! It does sound like He's A Pirate, but it is very catchy. I don't know what the score sounds like in the movie, but it sounds really good on the official soundtrack. To end this, all the action music is incredibly fun. Hans should be proud. Here are my top  5 favorite tracks:<br><br>1. Beyond My Beloved Horizon<br>2. The Brightest Star in the North<br>3. No Woman Has Ever Handled My Herschel<br>4. My Name is Barbossa<br>5. The Dying GullThe orchestrators are the same.<br><br>You really think the other composers aren't busy enough these days ? It was 10 YEARS ago ! lol*necessary (sorry about my english)
This composing lacks on every important aspect that make a film music score so nessesary to the movie itself. This music has no evolution, has no entity or identity.<br><br>You only know that you are listening the "WONDER WOMAN" ost when you listen the references to the now mythical (Zimmer) theme from Batman v Superman. And when this theme sounds in this composing it feels totaly out of place, really a shame.<br><br>Beyond, this music could easily work with another summer blockbuster like Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean or a generic action flick.<br>For years Iíve been defending "DC" music works against the  Marvelís (MCU) soul-less soundtracks. And now after three awesome ost (DCEU) I have to eat my words.<br>Is not necessary to talk about how great are Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad (ok, this last less, but with a epic main theme). You only need to listen Rupert Gregson-Williams Wonder Woman, and then play one of this three compositions.<br><br>But the most disappointing thing, is the great missed oportunity with the Wonder Woman Theme last year. That exotic tone, that woman strengh that you feel when you are listen this epic theme. Here all this feelings are lost. At the end, another Zimmer-Like Šlbum. <br>But like always in the "Zimmer-Like" longtime Šlbum library, not that height, not that quality, because if Wonder Womanís score remebers us something, is one and clear truth: Only Exists One Hans Zimmer.<br>What I don't understand is why couldn't they at least aim for the best soundscape this franchise have had by bringing the rest of the team from AWE of composers, arrangers and orchestrators back. If we look at AWE, apart from Zimmer, there was Zanelli, Jackman, Glennie-Smith, Balfe, ÷rvarsson, Gire and Sponsler on board. If they could choose one lead composer in Zimmer's absence, then whatever some dude wrote would at least sound interesting because of the colorful instrumentation and big, fresh orchestral sound AWE had. Or maybe, just rearrange old themes from the other movies in true AWE style would work just as well. There's plenty of material from POTC 1 that hasn't been used in the other films, and much of it would shine if orchestrated and performed in AWE's sonic fashion rather than the cheap sound the first film had.Fantastic album, particularly HGW's Metal Gear Solid and HZ's Call of Duty! Highly recommendedZanelli made a wonderful job with Zimmer's themes.<br>The new themes are great too, but he really did Zimmer's themes justice. I like the continuity.<br>Track 9.El Matador Del Mar, my favorite on the album.Maybe it's the end credits after the song
I also love the appearence of the theme in the end of Trafalgar Celebartion. Does anybody know what Action Reaction exactly is? It sounds a bit like a remix from the main theme but it could also be a part of the movie soundtrack. i don't know but it sounds cool.After listening to it the first time I thought this was a very good Zimmer score, but suddenly realized it was Rupert Gregson-Williams and that's a very good thing because he has been able to bring this Zimmer classic sound but with his own voice, as they said above here, with Last Samurai-like anthems and also remind me a bit of the second half of Hacksaw Ridge score, and that's great.<br>I specially liked No Man's Land, Wrath of Wonder Woman, Hell Hath No Fury and Lightning Strikes (well, in general, the second half is pretty awesome with many action heroic themes).<br>Cannot wait to hear it in the context of the movie.Love Maestro in The Holiday! The music keeps bringing me back to the movie. Something delightful about it!This is "One day" theme of the third soundtrack xDListen to 12:38 above and then also Main Title or Top of the World from Last of the Mohicans. Trevor Jones should have a listen.

Yeah i agree the movie was casual but if there is one thing that made it rock is the score. So heroic the composer made an amazing work

"Kingsman: The Secret Service", the new movie directed by Matthew Vaughn, will be scored by Henry Jackman & Matt Margeson! Yes!


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-20 21:00:40
Yep !!! :)


Anonymous2014-05-21 13:21:54
More likely Matt Margeson alone.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-21 13:49:03
Absolutely not... Very collaborative this time... ;)


RealFfingMusic2014-05-21 15:27:40
Never contradict Hybrid. Except when he's too convincing.

Terrible score by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margerson, wait for a jewel it's too much after hear Kick-Ass: The Score, but at least, that score have a couple of remarkable themes. On Kick-Ass 2, Jackman and Margerson abuse of the Kick-Ass Theme, and use it for all, exist some good themes, but aren't the enough good like to save this soundtrack of the mediocrity


thejok3rrules2014-02-01 04:20:06
Well, everyone has an opinion... You can say you don't like it, but who are you to say it is not good?

You're right, that are my likes XD

Does anyone know if there's any kind of video or interview of Margesson about this score?

Hybrid, little Hybrid... Let's not waste time, just give us the credits. Now. Please ;)


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-04 01:25:06
For goodness sakes. Leave off. If Hybrid had anything more specific, he would have told us by now. Sheesh.


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 04:44:16
Are you serious? Did you forget how Hybrid can sometimes be... not nice at all? I like him, but sometimes he doesn't tell us everything....


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-04 18:36:54
The funny think jok3r is that Matthew actually came here and noticed your comments. I told him to come here & answer you directly but he was too shy... :)

Anyway I have nothing more to add, didn't what I say give you all you need ?


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 20:55:53
Really? You gotta be kidding me! How could I contact him?


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 20:57:25
thejok3rrules@hotmail.com is my email adress, so I hope this great composer will talk to me, as, like I said previously, Kick-Ass 2 is my favorite score this year! :D


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 21:02:44
And besides, I would have appreciated more specific details concerning the credits, but thanks anyway, Hybrid!


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-04 21:11:23
More people than you'd think actually take a look around. That's why I just go total "facepalm" when I see some stuff being said around ! :P

Hybrid, I remember you said once the credits were actually difficult to give... Any new information about that? I just want to know everything from the best score I've heard this year!


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-02 22:45:59
It's mainly Matt. All the new themes are his. Henry was doing Turbo...


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 23:32:19
That's interesting because the score sounds totally like Henry Jackman's style. Margeson's only previous score sounded more like a cross between Brian Tyler and Transformers. Maybe that just goes to show how much input Margeson has had on Jackman's recent scores though.

What new themes, though? I didn't hear any...only the main theme carried over from Kick-Ass and that villain theme that's basically an adaptation of 28 Days Later.


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-03 00:06:08
Mindy's theme and the Mofo's theme.


thejok3rrules2013-10-03 02:48:09
Hybrid, any kind of credits to give us? :D

Fantastic score! It works greatly with the picture... and it's much more coherent than the previous one (despite it often references it's predecessor).


thejok3rrules2013-08-27 03:00:52
If there's anything missing, I don't know what it is... Btw, it might be one of the most pleasant score I've heard in years! :D I don't remember the last time I had so much fun listening to music! xD

It looks like "Fatherly Sacrifice" is lifted note by note from the chorale tune that starts around 2m34s of "You're My Hero" from Wreck-It Ralph soundtrack. I wonder if it was a temp-track thing.


KaijuRoyaume2013-08-18 22:22:25
The track "Honor To Serve Him" uses John Murphy's theme for Big Daddy (adapted from 28 weeks later), right ?

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2013-08-18 13:14:28
This is a cool score. I don't think it tops the 1st one but it's still very good. Margeson tried to keep a tone that's like a mix of Jackman and Murphy's tracks from the 1st movie, that's cool :)

This is the tracklist of the LLL release... The digital will have less tracks.

Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 23:28:31
Henry Jackman as "composer"? As opposed to just "main theme"? I thought this was Margeson alone.


Hybrid Soldier2013-06-24 23:30:19
It's... complicated... :)

Henry/Matt is fine... ;)
