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.

Was new music composed for this movie, or is this just the score from The Bible verbatim?


Mike2014-11-01 01:28:27
I guess I should say, was ANY new music composed? Obviously several of the tracks were carried over, but that doesn't mean there couldn't have been a few new cues or something.


NM2014-11-01 10:58:28
I didn't hear anything new. Then again I don't think it matters either way, 'The Bible' score wasn't anything that new to begin with. I was and am still genuinely disappointed with what Balfe (& friends) were asked to produce for this, given his talent. It's not bad music or anything, but it's a really safe score given the subject matter.


JamesT2014-11-01 15:13:35
Characterize "safe" in this instance.

Unadventurous, staid, playing to the 'modern' sound et al.

It's not terrible, it's got some nice textures, but it just doesn't do much for me. I know it's not a fair comparison, but listen to the dynamism, daring and lyricism of 'The Prince of Egypt' and then compare it to this. It's not that I expected another musical or animation score, far from! But this just, I dunno, just doesn't capture my imagination at all.

Listen to "In The Beginning" on this very site, it's the same kind of basic-melody-over-string-ostinato-build-up you hear nearly everywhere nowadays. It's like a weak version of Chevalier de Sangreal.

That doesn't mean it's bad music, as a standalone piece it's pleasant enough, it's got a nice solo performance, it just doesn't evoke god, or the bible, or faith or struggle. The feeling it evokes to me is closer to American triumphalism if anything, indeed I can imagine it set to the beginning of a Call of Duty game.

best Music.. And i Love it.. when i watch the flim i cried. its also cause by this score. Best music for the best movie of Jesus history.

Guess you never heard Debney's The Passion of the Christ ;)


Mike2014-05-05 22:45:22
The Passion of the Christ score was BRILLIANT. Beats this one by a long shot.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-06 00:35:59
For goodness sake, forget Zimmer OR Debney. What about Miklos Rozsa or Alfred Newman? To say that this is the best biblical or Jesus-related score is practically criminal...


Anonymous2014-05-06 04:47:23
For goodness sakes, silence the panel. I think this is an extremely individualized experience, across all those superb films and scores. Let it resonate with whom and however, please.

Son Of God was amazing!! The Bible series also touched my entire family! We were close to God before but now thanks to the lovley Roma Downey and Mark Burnette we are more closer to our Lord than ever. Thank you Roma and Mark for your beautiful work!!

Lorne Balfe is doing the Hercules score?


trent easton navarro2014-03-26 09:48:15
God, I hope not! Here's hoping a composer with some actual talent ends up scoring this one. Would love to see Ratner reunite with Powell on this one (that or Elfman)


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 11:50:56
That would be pretty uninspiring news if it's true.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 11:58:26
Goddammit. It says Balfe's name indeed on Wikipedia. That doesn't mean anything yet, but still...what a thoroughly blah choice of composer.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-26 19:11:29
Turns out it's not Balfe at all, but rather Fernando Velazquez! That's one of the most interesting composer choices I've seen in a long time. Can't wait to hear what it sounds like, his score for The Impossible a couple years ago was amazing.


trent easton navarro2014-03-26 19:42:37
There's a filmscore God after all!

Film Music Reporter just reported Fernando Velazquez will be scoring the film.

Hi Hybrid

Could you please tell me, are there any new tracks in the album, beside fisher of men. Are the tracks the exact same as the bible ost or are there any tracks with alternate versions etc.

Same Q. :|

Looking forward to seeing the movie. Don't get me wrong, I have strong convictions about my Faith and The Bible. LOVED the mini-series, certain I will love the film. BUT WHY the dialog over such wonderfully moving and spiritually-infused music?!? Rather aggravating, thought I don't like mentioning one in the same compliant about the other :) The track names themselves give the appropriate context for the music. Although, I would have bought the soundtrack alone for tracks 13 (original version used in the last half of the trailer), 8, and MOST CERTAINLY 5. Hoping for a complete release someday!

I really don't understand why some people think it's a good idea to add dialogs from the movie on the original soundtrack. The good thing is that we already own clean versions of almost all these tracks, so it's no big deal :-)


Hybrid Soldier2014-02-16 13:56:03
Yeah actually the only good addition is the great track "Fisher Of Men", which is "clean"...

All those cues are from The Bible series anyway...

And Universal does it again.... Will they never ever learn?
