Well... Zanelli composed Tia Dalma and the percussive Island music from the past trilogy at the least... also the spaniards theme from OST which was my favorite new theme. <br><br>in a new interview Zanelli explains that he, both directors and Zimmer sat down to decide on the new music, so Zimmer is still present... search the interview in filmmusicmg.comno Eric sorry but there is nothing noticeable in the score for Barbossa. Nothing new i mean :/Does Barbossa have a theme in Dead Men Tell No Tales?Ok guys, I just saw the movie too, in "avant-premi&#232;re" in France. I must begin by saying i'm a huge fan of PotC since 10 years now, and especially thanks to the music, such original for a "hollywood movie". I remember myself earing the Singapore theme in the theatre, and thinking "ooh my god, I've never heard something like that before ! It's sooo coool !". And, I have never heard anything like this since  in others blockbusters. The scores was very uniques.<br> Since 10 years now i'm a fan of Zimmer too and i know every single note of every Pirate film, and i'm not kidding. <br>So the movie was ok, great beginning, disappointing ending but LET'S TALK ABOUT THE SCORE !!!<br><br>First of all, Zanelli is not Zimmer. It's simple : after watching any pirate movie (even OnStTi) we had a new theme in mind (The Main Theme, the Kraken Theme, Davy Jones, Hoist the Colors, One Day, Up Is Down, Mermaids etc.). Here, we don't. The music "feels pirate" but that's all ; no remarquable new great theme... sorry guys.  Well, the only really remarquable is the Salazar's theme, between The Kraken, BlackBeard and Davy Jones, but we just remember the rock guitar, not the melody ;-(<br><br>It's hard to admit, especially from a fan who expected a lot from Zanelli, but the Soundtrack is just another hollywood soundtrack, barely remarkable, without originality. The greats themes are these from the others movies, the Zimmer's ones. And very often that's almost exactly the same : "Day One" in the beginning ; "Barbossa Is Hungry" or the Beckett's Death music in "I Don't Think Now Is the Best Time" is steel for the climax of potc5...<br><br>So, i'm nor waiting the soundtrack anymore, maybe IF there is some suites in it, but I don't think so... Too Bad. I miss Zimmer and Verbinski ;-(Somebody on Reddit posted that the soundtrack is already on sale at Disneyland.
I loved Chappie . Why didn't he worked with the other composers from the film ?It seems to be a feature film I think but why not work with Zimmer again ?My heart definitely goes out to Zack Snyder, I hope his family will pull through. Regardless of opinion, I think he is an enormously talented director who never got quite as much credit as he deserved.<br><br>Now that Joss Whedon is taking over the finishing touches on Justice League I wonder how this will affect the sound of JXL's music. <br>Where can we find out about deluxe soundtrack releases, for instance if Dunkirk was also released in a "special edition" or whichever, where could I learn or hear about it?Salazar is just another version of Davy Jones and his crew but with no motivation. <br><br>Jerry Bruckheimer -<br><br>Before OST:<br>"Blackbeard is probably the evilest character we've ever had"<br>"It harkens back more the first one."<br>"The beginning of a whole new adventure... a whole new fresh look to the pirates movies"<br>"We've got these two beautiful new characters"<br><br>Before DMTNT<br>"I think Salazar is the head of the family tree of the previous villains. He is the most frightening weíve ever had because heís merciless."<br>"What's fresh about this is the fact we're introducing these new characters"<br>"It's so fresh, so different, so scary"<br><br>
Well for me sadly it is just a reminder of how great the original trilogy was. The best things in this movie are the returning characters, and the returning love theme from At World's End. Aside from that, it's just like the 4th movie: another forgettable round in the same old attraction. Except this time there are some naval battles, so at least it looks like a pirates movie, which makes it just a little better than the 4th one. But still far, far below the first 3 movies.Just saw the film. Was great by the way, much much beter than On Stranger Tides. Now on the score: I'm not blow away by it (Not all the new theme's are great) BUT... First the new theme for Carina and the stars is by far the best new thing in the pirates soundtrack universe. It's beautiful, something new and adventurous. The new adventure theme is actually a new variation on He's a Pirate or Jack's theme (can't really tell, need to here it again.) which has been used a lot in previous films during the action sequences. First time i heard it, it thought it was a little bit simple and unoriginal but hearing it for a multiple times in the film I really started to like it! It's good they made something new to use during the action sequences instead of the overused he's a pirate or jack's theme, It gives the movie it's own voice.<br><br>Salazar's theme was for me the most dissapointing, it sounded too much like Davy Jones and his crew, also I don't even remember it. Missed opportunity over here. But what really stood out for me are the old themes. Dear lord I got goosebumps at the end when One Day (Will & Elizabeth's theme from Pirates 3) is used, it's emotional and epic. Also the beginning of the movie has a some tragic variations of Will and Elizaberh theme from Pirates 3. Hopefully this will be on the soundtrack! Also somethimes the Marry Me suite is used shortly for Henry during action moments. <br><br>It's amazing to see that these themes, made 10 years ago, still have there effect as they are used in a new movie (it also helpes ofcourse that storylines from At World's End finally pay off in this film) and they are used in a proper way, they always fit the scene in this movie (not like in On Stranger Tides we're theme's are used in scenes that didn't have a connection to it at all). I really hope the score album will make a good represention of this films complete soundtrack, waiting another multiple years for a complete score? (the opening track in this film for exemple, or that short little string piece when Carina appolizes to Henry) I don't think I can do that. Looking forward to friday to hear what they will give us.Amazon has it listed for this Friday, May 26th.well... yeah. that's the purpose of film music... complement the images, not just being there... I had read that review, but only that critic I've seen trash the music as well...<br><br>But don't go to far.. that's exactly the type of criticism is being thrown at Spielberg/Williams lately.. and if you don't believe me, just search for WarHorse reviews.<br><br>That folkes, are how 80s and 90s film music used to work.Genius, to be fair, the score for At World's End got some, not a lot, but some nasty reviews as well, and for similar "reasons" as well: too loud, too bombastic, saying more than what's happening on the screen, etc. I think we just need to listen to the score and watch the movie to see for ourselves... because if anyone is like me, I love all the scores and movies except for On Stanger Tides... regardless of the poor reviews. I've been wrong before though lol
"Geoff Zanelliís score is one of the most annoying of recent memory, but maybe itís not the composerís fault. For slow, dull action scenes he scores loud, propulsive music to make the audience think itís seeing something that isnít there. We get the horns of profundity and the strings of sincerity, not to mention the soaring choruses that tell us that grand things are really happening now, oh boy ó and that these people are really feeling something ó and arenít we privileged to be swept away on this epic of joy and adventure? . . . And none of it is on the screen."<br><br>...<br><br>" In the midst of all the galloping, carousing and general crazy hysteria of the movie, the score by Geoff Zanelli acts as a metaphor for the movie itself, working so hard to inspire feeling, but sounding like clanging desperation instead."<br><br>Score getting hammered as well. =<br><br><br>Anyone know when the soundtrack will be released? I'd assume the day of the film's release, May 26, but usually the series' soundtracks have been released earlier. I haven't seen anything for the soundtrack on iTunes, which is a bit concerning.Any news what Oats is ??? And is Zimmer doing it alsoLoving it - I enjoy every momentIt amaze me how volatile we as an audience are.<br>First we love an actor for being good, new, and fresh. Then by that, that actor keeps doing what we love him for... then we get bored and then we hate him and doom him for being what he "has become"...<br><br>suddenly he is a "bad" actor, just for keeping doing what made him a good actor in the first place.<br><br>Yes, we are also part of why hollywood is what it is now. We all are part of the same game of shallowness.

I really would like Powell to stop scoring animations and give us some powerfull action score - like Paycheck or Bourne.

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-25 00:00:00
Well... Paul Greengrass' "Green Zone" is coming in December, so we can hope for more Bourne-esque action music there! ;-)

tech reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-03 00:00:00
The score is broken up into small tracks to isolate the choir bits. It is a SAG union issue. This is the only way to use all real choir on the disc and not substitute demo synth choir for the album

Greg reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-28 00:00:00
Why does Varese just keep dividing a track into several cues as soon as vocals are used ??? It was the same problem with X-MEN THE LAST STAND...

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-28 00:00:00
I think John Powell likes it that way. The same was the case with the Bolt soundtrack, and that was released by Disney. Looks like he's taken some inspiration from Thomas Newman... :P

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-28 00:00:00
My guess is that Johnny has an excess supply of track titles that must be used one way or another. Seriously though, I have no idea what makes this meaningful to Powell nor do I understand why they are selling the albums in this form on digital download stores. Would you want to pay the same price you pay for a 3 minute cue for another 10 second cue as well, only to have that part of the 3 minute cue that plays in the 10 second cue? Insane.

No, Bolt wasn't at all shattered like Ice 3 cues are. Bolt was butchered more or less to meet the target 30 minutes running time ~ ALA avoid paying additional re-use fees (fees must be paid for every 15 minutes or so I was told.)

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-28 00:00:00
Actually, in MP3 form if you try to join the two continuing tracks together then the transition is not smooth, because during MP3 encoding a very small portion of the beginning and ending of the track is chopped off. I don't know if there's a configuration to avoid that, though.

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-28 00:00:00
That depends on the encoder software one uses and some tiny configurations which are dead easy to set. Few are software that do the job right though and almost all of them are not free.

MP3s purchased from Play.com do not have this problem by the way. Dunno about other vendors.

I'm assuming this is the complete score - I can't imagine why else they would include a 13 second track on a commercially available album.

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-03 00:00:00
Yup, looks more or less complete to me. The short tracks don't bother me much because it's pretty easy to join them together in case they continue into each other. At least the overall running time is almost 70 minutes (even more than the previous one) and it's a quality CD release. Can't wait!
