Just a forewarning: Those of you who have not seen the movie yet, you might not want read this thread yet. [hr] Anyways, so on to the score! While I didn't really notice any themes or motifs in POTC, there was a lot of "mood music" or "filler music" or action cues that were really cool and funky. For one, I love the little woodwind note or two that was played in the very beginning so much, and then later on in the movie when the pirates were around again. It isn't played like a normal note, though, it almost sounds like a flute playing a note, except the note is "windy" or something... It sounds like air blowing through a flute, yet with a music note attached. If any of ya know what I mean, back me up. Anyways, I thought this was really cool, and really set the mood for the beginning scene with the all the fog and the mysterious appearance of the boy. Very cool. However, I would have really liked some sort of theme (or two). Without a doubt, there should have been a bad pirates/Black Pearl theme. These pirates have such much history- they're both very evil and yet, somehow we feel pity for them and the curse that has been placed upon them. I really think a theme for the pirates really had great potential. But! If there was one cue/theme alone that will get me to buy the soundtrack (it comes out on July 22nd, btw ), it was that end battle theme (and it's in the end credits as well)! Man, I was humming this theme all the way home! It really got me psyched and was an excellent choice for the intense swordfighting with Sparrow and Barbosa flitting in and out of the moonlight and changing into and out of skeletons (John Knoll's effects were AWESOME with this stuff- it was so cool to watch! )! Without a doubt, I'll be buying this soundtrack when it comes out, and the thing I'll be looking forward to most is this end battle theme! Whoever wrote it did an amazing job! Superb! It ROCKS! So, what did you all think of the POTC score?
