4.0 out of 5 stars Pirates 3 - The Return of the Swashbuckler, 18 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (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.
