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.

The score has leaked... well, is out in Microsoft Store


Anonymous2016-10-11 00:52:43
Listened to it. It is a very boring score. All is very very generic.

Steve his score was more heroic and had some good themes. The main theme doesn't use anything from the previous games.

Ramin is good at writing some excellent melancholic themes like in GOT but not very good at writing exciting action music


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-11 10:48:54
I think I agree with your assessment of Djawadi. His themes are generally strong and he's very good at writing these catchy "hook"-type ostinatos. But I've never been too impressed with his action music, which frequently comes across as "plodding" to my ears.


MrZimmerFan2016-10-11 11:48:55
Agreed, very simple score, and what a hell happen with Kevin's theme?, isn't very good for you, Ramin?

Steve understand that theme and he uses in his two works in the franchise, and creating some very good action tracks and great renditions in the games, but Djawadi replaces with this simple and boring theme.


Anonymous2016-10-11 21:42:26
I agree. The action music is the same as all his scores. Some basic strings doing a few repetive dum-da-dum notes and not going anywhere.

I like some of his GOT themes but that was also due to his releases have a decent of amount of time between them. But this year there have been way more Ramin scores and it just shows how generic it all sounds.

They shouldn't hire him for franchises that already exist. I didn't like his warcraft score either. Compared to the game "login screen" music it was incredibably shallow.



Macejko2016-10-12 00:04:43
This is one of the most thematic videogame scores out there. Nearly every action cue has its unique and distinctive sound. I seriously don't know what you've all listened to, because it clearly wasn't this.
I won't be arguing much more, since it's unlikely I'll change anyone's opinion, but I'll be editing a suite for Hybrid to post here (as I did with Warcraft). It'll showcase what I mean.


rockhound2016-10-12 09:24:00
djawadis action music is generic and boring, but steves not? are you guys kidding? even in the itunes samples ramins action music sounds more varied than the music jablonsky wrote. maybe steves theme is more heroic, but it is not less simple and generic than ramins theme. i think this score sounds really good and like alot of mindless fun.


Everan2016-10-12 13:23:35
How bout we enjoy both and not bash the work from either composers?


Macejko2016-10-12 17:05:06
No, this is the internet, you crazy? :D

What is wrong with expressing a personal opinion or a personal review? If everybody cheers and say how awesome things are all the time their is no need for the Internet or comment sections :)

Ramin absoutely owned this year thus far, and with not only Gears 4, but also Westworld and The Great Wall coming out as well, I have no doubt that he will continue to do so.


h.zamani2016-10-02 17:01:24
i thought steve jablonsky would compose soundtracks of this game !!!!!11


Macejko2016-10-02 19:05:33
Yeah, it is always better to "think" and "suppose" rather than doing a one minute internet search.
"!!!!!11" indeed.


Everan2016-10-03 00:30:11
He composed the past games, it's easy to assume he'd be back, cut the guy a break, no need to be a jerk.
