Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.
Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.
Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.
you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)But the film was particularly bad...<br><br>So I rather have a whole other team do something ELSE lol...Yeah... McCreary's score is one of the best from last year so I'd rather have him again.

You know the bit in Dead man Chest, the music when Jack sparrow shot the bombs at the end to blow up the kraken, is that bit of music here?

Steve Jablonksy also composed some music?! or what?! PIRATES???!!! Yeah, yeah, duh...obviously. I love Steve Jablonsky as well so I started when I read that. I really want the CD so much!!! Okay, I'm a bigbigbigbigbigbigbigbigbigbig crazy fan and a great admirer of Hans Zimmer and his beautiful work, and I'm also one huge, huge, huge pirate when I found out they were selling this...this LOVELY, BIG HANS ZIMMER/KLAUS BADELT's natural for me to want it like...more than anything.'s so expensive (it should be, anyway) and I already have the third soundtrack...actually I borrowed my friend's soundtrack and ripped it into the latop, BUT I WANT THE ORIGINAL, WHOLE THING!!! I want everything that Hans Zimmer composed. But Pirates is a number 1...I hope I'm allowed to buy that CD. If I'm not...then...well, don't care, just buy it. I have my own money, anyway. And this CD is worth all of it. THIS CD IS WORTH A THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!!!

What are you people talking about, "it has the song when Will gets stabbed"... no it doesn't!!! It has the music afterwards when Jack and Elizabeth fly off from the ship yes, But NOT the epic choral music that plays when Will's heart is "removed" and the crew chant "Part of the Ship, Part of the Crew". Seriously, what the hell? That was the major reason that I bought it for. Why would they make 11 minutes of the love theme in different versions then end it with almost the whole Up is Down song? Im am majorly disappointed. I know it sounds like I'm whining or something but doesn't anybody think that the most important cue song should be released somehow... or am I alone in this sad state this "treasures" has put me in?

Couldn't they throw in some unreleased cues into the first three discs? I mean, what's the point in releasing just the normal OSTs all over again? Nevertheless, I'm getting this just for the fourth disc (unreleased suites) :D Can't wait to listen to "Just Good Business"!!!

I do not understand the people who decided to sell this as one big box set. This is horrible to the loyal and dedicated fans who have already bought soundtracks 1-3...I really want Disc 4 with the music everyone wants...but somebody decided they needed to try and squeeze money out of the loyal fans. Terrible, just terrible. The music is awesome, but how can I be expected to play $75 basically for only the 8 songs I want from disc 4? This would be so cool if Disc 4 could be sold separately, instead- it's a total rip off.

Just wanted to say that 9 months ago, Disney sent us advice to remove all mp3 extracts regarding their releases from our website, that's why we didn't released any extracts from this score. I don't want to receive another letter from Burbank in my letterbox anymore. But when looking to the 3 pages of comments on this release and all your great comments, i do hope Mr Lance GRIFFIN can see we're not the enemy against his company its internationnal mail could let me think. On our website, Disney benefits from a great publicity for its VERY EXPENSIVE new CD (only cd 4 & dvd are interesting : 65 dollars for that).
And as we're stupid, we're not making money with this website, no publicity, no link on amazon or else ; all is paid by us ! We paid for Disney's CD to be known !!! I think CD like BRAVISEAMO(...) can tell us many thanks !
In exchange of what ? No interview (refused), no pictures or videos (ask ignored), we're only a fan website and considered as well ! They just tolerate us to speak from this release and don't ask anything in exchange, because it will be refused as we're only fans.
So i'm happy for Disney which can have his publicity on this website (250 000 visits/month), for amazon which will for sure have commands thanks to us, and always be proud to promote the work of all this great talented composers. I thank Disney to release one CD more for the pirates trilogy and dare to ask ; What about "The Lion King" ? Instead of fearing illegal music, release it ! Alan Menken had the release of "Music behind the Magic" for his oscarised beautiful score ? What about answering the 15 years dreams of thousands fans ?
But just remember people : torrent, illegal download and are all about the same for the Disney company ! I hope such a fan release page and their imagination to evaluate the time to make such a website can make them think : "not exactly..."
And Mr ZIMMER is about to have his official website ; it will be more easy for him i think and we will be on holiday.

Thanks Sylvos, I fell better now! I listened to the samples on the german website but I didn't checked the lenght. Anyway, as you were saying on the forum, 45 minutes is still too short for a specific DVD about the music.

Let's hope that those featurettes will be as interesting and full of information as the Gladiator making of on the 2 DVD edition...

ROFL!!! That is not right Jack. The DVD is about 45 minutes and something according to Rudi Völler in the discussion board. Come and ask yourself this, how would they demonstrate "Making of a Score" in one and half minutes? Honestly, that's exactly why they say never trust what Wikipedia says! ;-)

Hi guys! Wikipedia says that the features on the bonus DVD will be the following ones:

I just wanted to say how fantastic the music from all three movies is, very emotive, I always let the credits roll right to the end with the volume up, so that I can feel it as well as hear it. I can't wait for the Soundtrack Treasures to come out in December. I just wish I could find the lyrics to the song that the young boy sang in 'At Worlds End'.

Looking forward to the next installment. Happy writing.
