Yes that Salazar theme does basically take a segment from the Blackbeard theme, lets not be kidding ourselves. But Ill reserve judgment until I hear the full rendition.Thanks Hybrid<br><br>Merci Hybrid &#128512;It is the Black Beard theme with a new arrange. Maybe exist some reason behind thisI'm actually pretty excited by what I'm hearing. Carina's new theme is nice and I love the orchestral energy Geoff brings to this one. The one gripe I have with this so far is that Salazar's theme, at least the beginning, is almost Blackbeard's theme note for note. It even has some of the same instrumentation. Other than that, I tip my hat to Geoff.It sounds very much like the intro motif from Blackbeard theme, not the theme itself, although not the same exact notes neither.<br><br>I think is merely intentional to these have the same "DNA", is not accident. Remember Zanelli was heavily involved in Stranger Tides, much more than the trilogy.
My teenager daugther and I are looking  forward to seing you in  Barcelona.  It would be the nicest gift I could ever give to her for her 18th birthday.I discovered today that Lorne will be scoring/has scored the upcoming movie 'Churchill' Awesome stuff!Hybrid - what did you like/not like about it?Quite the opposite most people (who care) were/are looking forward to seeing what Geoff Zanelli would do after the uninspiring On Stranger Tides.<br><br>Having said that I'm not feeling this one. I'm glad it was composed by someone who wanted to do it but I think Hans' creativity is missed, honestly. For all the talk about ghost-writers (which I've argued about on here a few times), it's telling when you hear the original work of people who've arranged his compositions and compare.<br><br>I will say one thing in defence of it. Last time out (with OST) we got our first exposure to the score back when there was a possibility the film would still be good. Sadly it's been confirmed as shit and I wonder if that biases my view when listening to it and makes me less receptive.The suite brought tears to my eyes. The music I hope is Carina's theme is too beautiful for words.
I imagine some kind of connection between Salazar and Blackbeard. Not that is in the movie, may be conceptual, but I don't think is "accidental" or laziness. It sounds pretty intentionalthis sounds nothing at all like davey jones.  or blackbeard as other people said.  i think many people decided not to like this score before it came out.  that's all i think when i see these comments.  is anyone actually listening?just a recall of the Davy Jones first appearance music : <br>https://youtu.be/Lhb4FccPrOI?t=2m58ssalazar's theme guys : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BL7vHk9sq3s&ab_channel=disne ymusicJust read that on film music reporter . Lorne has to be the most in demand composer at the moment . Amazing how busy he is and really enjoying his score to Genius
That's not surprising to hear, this series really has become one big cash grab (moreso than it already was)<br><br>I'm really excited to hear the full score on album when it drops, Geoff is enormously talented. Judging by the suite alone there really aren't any new moments that pop out to me or scream <br>memorable. Even On Stranger Tides managed to fit in some pretty solid new ideas, and a decent album presentation outside of the remixes.<br><br>Also, is it just me or is the recording a bit flat?Does ol Hector Barbossa get his own theme or do they use Becketts again?Well I saw the film today as well and I can't express how disappointed I was by it... Such a mess, with a bunch of horrible things and some good ones halas buried in the rest...<br><br>As for the score, it flows better on CD, but Geoff did really good, much better than the 4th.The Suite sounds great and the music from the instagram video the director Joachim Ronning posted is at around the 0:25 second mark I think but Geoff Zanelli did great with this.Eh, I'm not really like Blackbeard's - I mean Salazar's theme. It sounds like a temped mix of the Blackbeard theme and Ramin's Kaiju theme from Pacific Rim.<br><br>The rest sounds pretty good, especially the references to "Marry Me"<br><br>Hybrid, what are your impressions of the full thing?

Hello Dimitris,

Wow, Hybrid, I didn't know you had a top favorite!


Dimitris Krommidas2015-07-12 18:31:48
Well, a lot of people around the world have this score deep inside their hearts because back then, in 1996, it was the way that they discovered Hans Zimmer.
I am one of them.
Thank you mr.Zimmer.


Edmund Meinerts2015-07-13 18:22:30
You should thank Messrs. Glennie-Smith, Gregson-Williams et al s well, Dimitris... ;)

The "Theme Idea" on NGS' page, is that the theme the director didn't like and made Hans replace? Because no offense to Hans, but I like NGS' theme better.


Ds2014-02-10 09:17:58
God, "The Rock" theme is one of my favorite HZ themes EVER. One of my favorite opening scenes, too. I wouldn't trade it for anything!


Mike2014-02-10 16:27:04
Oh, don't take that the wrong way: I love the Zimmer theme, too. ;)

MacArthur reply Replies: 4 || 2013-10-10 17:46:47
Hybrid are there any other scores like POTC1 where Zimmer came to a RCP guys rescue and did not get credited.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-10 19:01:38
Off the top of my head I can think of a couple: Armageddon (he helped on the Asteroid Chase cue), Iron Man (Driving with the Top Down is his, among other things...it seems he actually did quite a lot on that one) and Transformers 2 ("Decepticons Invade/Fallen on TV" cue from the complete score).


MacArthur2013-10-10 20:03:43
Thanks Ed. I did know that he did transformers 2 (The Fallen's Arrival) and 1 question do you like the Iron man score?


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-10 22:28:49
Not a huge fan. Pretty much the only thing I like about it is the general style, but that kind of orchestral rock stuff has been done SO much better by other composers (including Brian Tyler and John Debney, although ironically not particularly in their two scores for the franchise, but rather the Fast & Furious scores for Tyler and The Scorpion King for Debney). Djawadi's is really banal and simplistic and lacks energy to me. There's some decent themes in there ("Vacation's Over") but they're really underdeveloped. I haven't heard the complete score though, so I'm basing this on the album. Hell, I think Trevor Rabin would have made a better Iron Man score than Djawadi did. :p


MacArthur2013-10-10 22:41:34
Oh Wow. I never thought Rabin was that good. although i do agree about Djawadi he's not great his Clash of the Titans score was good (at least I thought)


One quick note I was doing a download and my iPod wiped my music clean. I mean nothing left except for one song that I had just put on it. do you know what might have happened. Cause I'm Baffled.

Mike2013-05-15 21:03:01
lol, Curse of the Black Pearl drew from a LOT of previous Zimmer scores....The Rock, Crimson Tide, Gladiator, Drop Zone, and El Dorado to name a few. ;)

El Baradei reply Replies: 4 || 2013-01-13 17:52:21
This score is still one of the best scores of all time with maybe the best action theme of all time.

The Rock and Hans Zimmer are the reasons for me to love film scores.


El Baradei2013-01-14 09:55:19
By the way, did you know: the main theme for Ed Harris' character was composed by Hans Zimmer based on ideas by him and James Newton Howard.

10 years before Batman Begins the first collaboration between Zimmer and Howard.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-14 11:36:10
Oh there was one before that... Though not in composition.


El Baradei2013-01-14 19:14:21
Okay, and what was it?


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-14 20:50:42
Waterworld, where Hans gave JNH the MV samples library. :)

The Rock was a favor back, though from what I know I don't think JNH was involved in any way, it's more like Hans politely asked if he could copy James... haha

This soundtrack is great stuff.

But it and Crimson Tide sound a lot alike. Particularly Hummell Gets the Rockets.

I've been a big rock/heavy metal guy growing up, but more and more I see that this is true. . .but it is EXTREMELY slbtue. That's how I and many others have been deceived it seems innocent. But you research it and you realize that its roots are often evil and occult.Why did the Beatles's include Aleister Crowley on their Sgt. Peppers album?Why did Ozzy Osbourne dedicate a song to Crowley?Why did the Rolling Stones write Sympathy for the Devil ?Is ACDC's Highway to Hell really innocent?A while ago, I was happy to listen to it bobbing my head. One day I woke up. And these examples are classic examples, newer rock is often more bold in attacking truth and Jesus (band Slayer comes to mind). Can I choose to listen to that smut and have a testimony of Jesus?

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 2 || 2011-06-27 17:57:40
Hey, Hybrid, do you think we're ever going to get a who-composed-what detailing for this score? Seems like this is one that needs it the most (and that's saying something considering how big some of Zimmer's committees are!).

As far as I can guess, Zimmer composed the main theme and the first half of "Hummel Gets the Rockets", Gregson-Williams contributed to some of the more frenetic action cues (his ultra-kinetic percussion sound from the Tony Scott is evident in "The Chase") and Glennie-Smith did the rest, the "Jade" and "Fort Walton - Kansas" cues in particular sound like his.

But you probably know better than I do, so I'd love to hear what you know about this complicated situation. Thanks.

Oh yeah - AWESOME score. Probably the best late 90s MV action score there is!


Dakota2011-06-27 18:40:24
I second this! Or for the complete score as well


Gav2011-06-27 23:51:07
I think Don Harper is solely credited, at least in the credits, for The Chase.

This score is simply amazing- I've never seen/heard a sountrack that would fuse with the picture as well as The Rock does. Once you've seen the movie once or twice, you can actually only listen to the soundtrack and recall every single action scene accompanied by it's part of the score - you can almost follow every body move the actors make.
Simply amazing!
