4.0 out of 5 stars Pirates 3 - The Return of the Swashbuckler 18 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
If ever there was going to be a return to the Errol Flynn days this was going to be it and Zimmer has delivered at last. The first movie was different and has suffered from endless comparisons with Steiner, Korngold and the classic movie swasbucklers due to its reliance on eletcric guitars over orchestra. Me? I loved it. I would love to hear it though performed entirely by an orchestra.

This soundtrack was eagerly awaited by the movie music collectors in the hope of a real pirate score and Hans Zimmer has deleivered it to us. Full of the jaunty themes known and loved but this time suffused with a power taking you back to those halcyon days of adventure and swordplay. It moves at a fast pace and finally allows full play of the classic Pirate Themes from that first film but given free rein to be played at their most powerful. Romantic underscores for the tension between Sparrow, Swann and Turner are there and bring balance at last in the third movie. Moan about Zimmer? Not here. he has deleivered what he was asked to by Jerry Bruckheimer and also given the film fans what we want too, a true pirate movie score full of fun, flashing adventure and yo ho ho. Turn the dial right up, allow yourself to feel the enjoyment of this music and you won't be disappointed. Enjoy letting yourself visualise Johnny Depp's Capt'n Jack once again except this time, given true power.

If you like Zimmer you will love this. If you like pirate music performed with energy and given an emotional heart you will love it too. Ignore moans about repetition from miserable movie critics too deparate for something new and let yourself have fun again.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Film Scores . . . Ever! 1 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of film music for the past five years and am convinced that this is one of the best film scores I have ever heard. Hans Zimmer has always been a firm favourite of mine as I am constantly in awe of his ability to compose music that sounds truly heroic and emotional.

On this CD, there really isn't a bad track: "Hoist the Colours" is a new 'Pirates' theme, however the tune was composed by director Gore Verbinski and Zimmer before "The Curse of the Black Pearl" was released. In Track 1, it features as a dirge, sung first by a solo boy who is then joined by a full choir; but the theme returns in "The Brethren Court", and most prominently in "What Shall We Die For", where Zimmer slowly builds it up to a triumphant crescendo.

"Singapore" feautures superbly-atmospheric Eastern music, and the track ends with the most heroic take on 'Jack's Theme' yet. "At Wit's End" is dominated by a new theme which Zimmer composed for this film and is most closely associated with Will and Elizabeth's issues. There's even a strangely beautiful passage of female choir that evokes Enya and is the most un-Zimmer like music in the score. 'Calypso's Music Box' also makes a return, first in it's usual, tinkling form and then in a tragic version.

"Up is Down" is one of the best tracks, but I fail in trying to describe it: it has to be heard and felt by the listener! Unable to reprise "The Kraken" in this film, Zimmer opted for a wailing electric guitar in "Parlay", cleverly setting 'Hoist the Colours' against the 'East India Trading Co.' theme as the two sides clash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Someone gave Zimmer back his heart! 30 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
After Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Hans Zimmer had to come up with something pretty special to win me over. With Dead Man's Chest Zimmer took some of the best themes from the first film, a collaboration between 15 or so Media Ventures composers such as Harry Gregson Williams and Steve Jablonski, but predominately Klaus Badelt, and did strange things with them. While expanding the jaunty Jack theme and beefing it up was a good idea, as well as bringing in some murky and powerful stuff for both the Kraken and Davy Jones, the score overall was an overloud, bludgeoning experience without much tenderness or subtlety. Too much synthesizer and reverting to his favourite tricks I think may have been the problem. Dead Man's Chest was fun, but lacked colour and seemed to be constantly rushing onwards. After Hans Zimmer's wonderful, delicate and atmospheric music for films such as Da Vinci Code and The Last Samurai I was hoping that with the third Pirates film we would hear a more complex score.

Thankfully, that's just what we get. Once again Zimmer brings in the themes running through Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest which gives a lovely sense of continuity, but these themes are developed even more, becoming action cues that effectively trigger all the right emotions, or background colouring that really add to the depth of the onscreen events. The track 'I Don't Think Now Is The Right Time' so effectively conjured a storyboard in my head, I was able to predict the onscreen action almost perfectly!

At World's End is a much more emotionally charged score, with some lovely soaring moments where the love themes break out from the darker action cues in really uplifting ways.
