    Well, the linear notes credit at least 5 real musicians: cello, flute, guitar, woodwinds, and percussion (and apparently a choir as well). Other than that, I have no idea.

    There's a mixture of real and synth instruments, sometimes one or the other and sometimes both together.

    It sounds very inconsistent from track to track.

    Well... I am in a school band and I play the flute :D I love it.. Anyways.. I have a couple versions of the pirates of the caribbean and My ALL TIME FAVE has got to be the black pearl one Arranged by Michael Sweeney (what it says on the music)
    It is awesome because it is the main part of the song. There is this one part where it is really fast and staccattod o_O If you play an instrument you should know what I mean ;) but I LOVEEE The movie and the songs [face_love]

    It's being scored by Hans Zimmer. That's all I know so far.

    Alright, so I just watched Pirates of the Caribbean for the first time last week, and it was a truly amazing film. It really caught me off-guard at how great of a film it was. And the music.....well let's just say that I've aquired the soundtrack in a game of chance. Anyway, the music is simply *amazing*, and even though it's heavily synthesized, I can still appreciate it. The main theme during the last track really got the blood pumping, and the sweeping rendition of that theme during the Will and Elizabeth kiss scene (Track 14) was breathtaking. I must say that I was just pleasantly surprised by this score, and I can't wait for the Dead Man's Chest score!

    Check out Soundtrack.net's [link=http://soundtrack.net/features/article/?id=198]first listen[/link] of Dead Man's Chest. I'm not going to say anything but this - what were they thinking with the "He's A Pirate (Tiësto Remix)" ?!

    Hmm...very interesting. From what I heard, it sounds okay, but it doesn't really give much. I love the waltz from Dinner Is Served.

    *sigh*

    It's better; I absolutely concede that. The jigs and the waltzes, while unremarkable, are a blissful change in tone. There is more orchestra. More coherence. Is it still boring, repetitive, and quintessentially Zimmer? Yes.

    Which means...it's being scored by Klaus Badelt.


    Am I right?

    So was the last one scored by Klaus for real? Was it ghost written by Hans?

    Well, let's put it this way...

    Zimmer = Badelt

    but...

    Badelt =/= Zimmer

    Basically, Any credit Badelt gets should really go to Zimmer (He wrote the movie's themes, and that's all the general public really cares about.) But Badelt and co. have to copy the Zimmer style. So Zimmer's the better guy out of all of this. So...yeah. You know what? Screw it. For all I know, 12 other composers could be working on this thing.:rolleyes:

    Home Alone 2. The majority of the cue was replaced by a modern song when Kevin arrives on the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Well, [link=http://filmtracks.com/titles/pirates_caribbean2.html]filmtracks[/link] has a nice lengthy review up. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - Hans Zimmer has talent, his socres to The Last Samurai, Beyond Rangoon, and The Lion King prove that, but for some reason he chooses not to develop that talent and just keeps repeating the same ideas and themes over and over again.

    Hell, what do I know? Maybe he just got lucky a few times.

    I bought the score last night off of iTunes. I haven't listened to it all right now but I like what I've heard so far.
