Just when we thought there would be no remixes on this soundtrack. The digital release will included a bonus track with this piece of shit track: https://youtu.be/wJDKqkbXIT0  by Dimitri Vegas en Like Mike (those guys who play music with there macbooks and usb sticks.) <br><br>Nobody asked for this track. This is going to the trash once the soundtrack is downloaded on my ipad.I have to admit, that new adventure theme it's stuck in my head all day. Don't know how suddenly popped up into my head.There are a lot of ways to describe the Pirates scores, but "original" or "never heard something like that before", certainly not.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.

A really interesting article I found about Alan Meyerson, HZ, and the making of Prince of Egypt. Unfortunately it's in french but maybe google trad can help. You also get an insight of how additional music works (this time by Harry Gregson Williams)

The music at the very end of the film as Moses is carrying the Ten Commandments is so Zimmerish and awesome!!!


Mike2013-11-26 21:07:13
I know, it's quite intense. I wish it were on the album.

I think it is the End of Deliver Us!


Mike2013-11-26 21:42:28
You're right, but it's purely instrumental and has a lot more "Zimmer power" to it. :)


Frisbee2013-11-27 06:27:28
It is the later half of "Chariot Race" as presented on the limited collector's edition album. Not sure why it's named that way or why it's combined with the actual Chariot Race music but there you go.


Mike2013-11-28 18:33:52
Not exactly, Frisbee. It cuts off right before the music in question plays in the film.

To this day I'm moved by that scene where Death of the Firstborn plays, and Moses is crying. Amazing how serious this movie is, being animated and all that.

If I wasn't on my iPod touch right now, I'd type up the tracklist and lengths of the one I have. My expanded is 19 tracks on Disc 1, and 14 tracks on Disc 2.


Anonymous2011-06-29 16:26:46
This is the most complete version, apparently.


Per2011-06-30 14:06:56
Both of these versions have previously been listed here on h-z.com. Or actually they're still there, just not linked to anymore.

The 19+14 track version is just a rip from the film.

The 11+9/10 track version is a combination of the OST and the following:

"It is Only Beginning..." and "Chariot Race" from the Collector's Edition CD. (Chariot Race ""Film version"" is just the same, only cutted.)

"Moses Nightmare" (Hieroglyph Nightmare) and "International Trailer" from Harry Gregson-Williams' Music For Film (Wavecrest compilation promo)

"Opening" and "The Camels" probably from the film itself.

Track 3 CD2 - Devotion, is from Klaus Badelt's Music For Films compilation promo. And although I haven't compared it second by second, I guess this cue would be inside "Goodbye Brother" on the OST.


Poe2011-08-04 23:12:52
Per, is this in film order the one I listed? it doesnot seem to be.

I am missing the camels track, anyone know where to rip it from on the dvd?


theeaglesfan0052011-08-05 03:13:43
expanded score? is it SFX free? :)


Takehiro2011-08-05 03:34:28
Yes but its a total fake. Repeated material, suspicous music (possibly from different films) and filler (songs not by Zimmer). There is a more honest expanded version with just Zimmer's contribution, its about 50-odd mins, lossless, and SFX free


theeaglesfan0052011-08-05 04:00:26
where can you get that one takehiro?

this is one of my favorite movies... seeing as im a Christian... i love it... i have the cassette soundtrack from growing up as a kid

Hybrid Soldier2011-08-05 16:10:49
First, Take, we're not on your beloved Shrine...

Second, the tracks available not on the OST are Chariot Race, It's Only The Beginning... (coupled with The Ten Commandments) on the Collector's Edition CD...

Then you have a synth mock-up of Hieroglyph Nightmare & the Trailer Music on a HGW's Music For Film Promo.

That's all... :)

I don't know if anyone got the special cd that came in a special package at like Wal-Mart or something, but that had the best music out of it all on there. It was an action cue called "Chariot race". I still don't under stand why they can't put out entire scores BY THEMSELVES with ALL THE MUSIC from the film out on shelves! Oh well, I get what I can. Bravo, Maestro Zimmer.
