Exactly - Lego batman could easily be for any D.C. Film not just for an animation . One of my favoritesGot to agree with you . Legit batman is in my top 5 for sure . It out a lot of super hero film soundtracks to shame . Excellent scoreWell.. I saw the movie, and I liked though not as much as the trilogy, but its very enjoyable in its own right. Capture much more of the firsts movies feeling that OST did. What I think I missed the most was Verbinski's weird sensibilities, grittiness and timming, but oh well as long as he doesn't want to return to this series, it will be something to miss for ever. <br><br>As for the Zanelli's score I loved it. I think is much better than Curse of the Black Pearl, which I think is the one we should compare with. Remember this new movie is, in theory the 1st one of a new part of the saga, so... compare it to AWE I think is very unfair... Not just the characters but the story itself must earn the epicness just as AWE did, thats how Zimmer desceibed it at the time. So this new one is the lowest end of Pirates epicness yet, or at least is the way I see it. If they keep doing more and Zenlli is still there, I'm sure it'll have to grow in scope and reach AWE highs and maybe even more.Agree with Edmund, (Shrek, Ice Age, Kung Fu Panda, Jungle Book...,) but each to his own... <br>What's the name of that celestial music when Volmer gives Hannah a new dress and says to her "You're a woman now" ?
I can think of like fifty animated scores that beat out Lego Batman, but okayI Was Just Trying To Be Brave ,Wonderful.Agreed . Apart from how to train your dragon , Lego batman is second best animation score alsoIt'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.

So I just picked up the Collector's Edition CD that was released (the one with the 3 extra cues), and i have to say, I'm glad I did. Having the Chariot Race and Epilogue (alternate version, granted) really rounds out the main CD. Those were two highlights. Having "Moses Reviled" is also good, as that was a strong cue (called "It is Only the Beginning" on the CD). The whole score has essentially been released when you put the main CD and the collector's one together (though sadly, the film version of the Epilogue isn't here).

I got the thing for $3.00. I was inspired to look into it due to a comment about it below.


Mike (OTM)2017-03-25 21:24:40
Not to double post, but can I just say that both versions of the Finale - the one using Hans' theme and the one using the Deliver Us theme - are really, really epic? Zimmer outdid himself with this segment particularly. The Prince of Egypt is a truly underrated score.

Okay. Listen to Hero from 13 Hours, then Burning Bush...


Waymann2016-07-06 08:38:47
I knew it. When I saw 13 Hours I kept thinking about another score that sounded just like that theme.


Mike2016-07-06 17:12:02
Yikes! Temp track? Well, Hans was producer on 13 Hours... Maybe that was his suggestion. :P


Mike2016-07-06 17:15:02
The similarity I caught while watching the film was the "Deshi Deshi Basara" percussion in "Welcome to Benghazi." It sounds like Zimmer-temp (or Zimmer suggestions?) was used in a couple places.

WOW!!! That is shameless!

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2017-03-19 22:30:51
The Collector's Edition contains "Moses Reviled," along with "Chariot Race" and Zimmer's original Epilogue as one track, is that correct?

Mike reply Replies: 6 || 2016-07-04 20:27:10
Interesting little thing... If you listen to the director commentary on the film, they say that Hans' original idea for the Burning Bush sequence had "choir and organ and stuff," but they asked for a re-write because that was stereotypical and they wanted something different for the scene. I love the final version, too, but I can't help wanting to know what the original sounded like.


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-04 21:12:50
Stay from Interstellar ?! :P


Mike2016-07-04 22:37:01
Quite possibly. Has Hans done any interviews for this score? I haven't found any.

Also a little interesting was that the directors mentioned Harry Gregson-Williams by name with regard to the "Line in the Sand" cue. As Rameses opens his eyes while holding the ring, one of them talks about how it was "scary" and "that was Harry Gregson-Williams' idea." :P


anonymous2016-07-04 22:58:47
on a somewhat related page... zimmer produced the first use of "all i ever wanted" sung by moses, and harry did the queen's reprise, right? or did harry do both?


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-04 23:39:34
Yep !

To be complete on POE, on the cuesheet HGW & RGW get 100% on the following cues :

HGW :
Hieroglyphic Nightmare (with Schwartz)
Moses Finds Cave
Line In The Sand

RGW :
Meeting Tzipporah
Camel Boogie
Meeting Pharaoh

Klaus got 0, lol, did some arranging...

Up until the early 2000s, HZ used to give 100% of some of the cues to additionals even when it used some of his music. But then all the rest of the cues were credited to HZ only while some were arranged by these guys... So I guess nowadays way of doing is not so bad...


Mike2016-07-05 00:11:29
Here's something I've wondered:

Do Hans' additional guys do substantially more than they did in the 90's / 2000's, or is it really a matter of crediting differently like your comment suggests? Cause it seems like Zimmer had a lot more "solo" credits on his scores back then (70% of cues, typically), whereas now he'll have only 2 or 3 on a given score. So did Hans' methodology change at some point and now he's more collaborative than he used to be, or is it mostly that now he credits "arrangers" and he didn't used to?


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-05 00:19:22
Well, I don't think it's much different, in proportion it's the same thing...

Remember in the 90s he had to do scores quite short, even big action films were 90 min long...

Now when you have an Inception, POTC or whatever, it's always between 2 & 2,5 hours of music to write... And relatively less time to write them ! lol

Found some credits for it, should look like that ! :)


Mike2015-01-08 00:24:58
Thank you! I've wanted these forever!


Mike2015-01-08 00:26:18
Where Stephen Schwartz is credited, it's because it contains some of his song material, but Zimmer did the cue, right?


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-08 11:42:03
Yeah there are quotes of the songs but Schwartz only did the songs...

But credit is due... :)


NM2015-01-08 22:29:13
Haha, the ones I guessed were HGW were spot on. I have no idea how I was able to tell.

Zimmer made Such. An Epic. Arrangement. of Deliver Us for that last scene. My goodness. It gets me every time.


Mike2014-12-06 16:15:53
This is a sadly under-spoken-about score. It's probably one of my favorite Zimmer scores of the 1990s, and it uses his big, epic sound to really good effect. It just manages to complement the film really well, and it even has a nice Eastern flair sometimes.


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-06 23:43:12
This is something like my third-favorite Zimmer score. I don't think he ever quite managed to go as grandiose and BIG as this again, not even in Gladiator.

On a vaguely related note, wouldn't it have been hilarious if Ridley Scott had decided to reunite with Hans on Exodus: Gods and Kings of all things? :p


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-06 23:53:55
I would have loved to... :(


Adam2014-12-07 00:13:20
I would have loved that as well :(

Hey Hybrid, do you know why Ridley & Hans stopped working together? They were partners since Thelma & Louise. I mess their collaborations :'(


Ds2014-12-07 00:40:10
Edmund, I think PotC 3 and King Arthur are even BIGGER than this one :-)


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-07 02:08:36
Funny that you mention those two, Ds, they're my other two favorite Zimmer scores. ;)

Yeah, they're both pretty massive, but more in an action-score kind of way. I don't think King Arthur in particular hits quite the same grandly religious heights as Prince of Egypt. For overall size At World's End wins everything, though.


NM2014-12-07 09:07:50
Nice to see some appreciation for this score. I really love it.


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-07 09:10:39
Hans & Ridley isn't gonna happen ever again. They keep talking about each other a lot in interviews & stuff, they are still in contact, phoning or dining from time to time...

But the look on Hans' face when I asked him said it all... He just said they were "out of synch"...


Anonymous2015-01-07 22:36:28

The theme for the two brothers is heartbreaking, I wish this score got more attention. There's some really great thematic writing.
