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.

I recently bought this album, and I quite enjoy it.. But there's one big problem I have with it, along with most video game scores, it's the lack of thematic development. The biggest thing that frustrates me is that a composer will write a fantastic theme, only to have it pop up two or three times, or less. A lot of the assassin's creed scores suffer from this (aside from III and Unity). Ludvig composed an amazing main theme for Snake, first heard in "V Has Come To" and I was very excited on the first listen because I had been playing the game religiously in recognized the theme from the gameplay. As expected, the theme only appears a few times after the mentioned track. Its only appearances after track 2 are a brief moment in "You Can Call Me Ishmael", "Return", a very patriotic rendition in. "Shining Lights, Even In Death" and a final statement in the refrain during "Metal Gear Online. " regardless, I'd recommend for fans of Harry Gregson Williams's prior MSG scores. If anyone knows where I can locate some of the missing tracks, please share!

Even, you might want to check out the expanded soundtrack that was just put out digitally a couple of weeks ago.

I'll admit, I originally struggled a bit with this score, but with the recent release of that album, (which added over five hours of music), I decided to more thoroughly give it a go.

Its sound is fairly different compared to the past Metal Gear games, but after taking a while to adjust, I found it to be pretty brilliant. Thematically, I think it's actually very solid. The theme for Venom Snake is subtlety interwoven throughout most of the score. It just requires a bit of listening in some instances. It's definitely quoted a lot more than the tracks you pointed to.

Beyond the main theme though, there are some secondary themes that that really tighten things together, with the most illuminating being the numerous quotes of the Peacewalker theme from the past games that the first album mostly left out. It adds a ton of continuity that some people may find the first two disc set lacking.

I would definitely recommend though to anyone who might have found this to be a lukewarm listen to combine it with the second release, and take some time to digest the material. There's also supposed to be a third album coming out in March with the last few remaining tracks, so that should hopefully be pretty interesting too.

By great Annutseba, devourer of stars, ADDED FIVE HOURS OF MUSIC and they still want to put out a third release?

Jesus. Howard Shore would blush!

I was surprised by the release as well, given the length of the original album already put out, but some of the material on the extended set is absolutely essential if you're at all interested in the music here.

"We are Diamond Dogs"
"Regret and Acceptance"
"Paz is Dead"

Some of these tracks, after listening to them, left me absolutely flabbergasted that the first album didn't include them.
