Good fun but...
on 4 April 2017
As far as music goes, this twin disc collection is well worth it for the Dead Man's Chest album alone. Of the four films, this soundtrack is a masterpiece in intensity, dark moods and general fantasy themes. Unfortunately, The Curse of the Black Pearl is a little phoned in with the album being one or two specific themes sewn together with random atmospheric snippets. Saying that, both soundtracks combined create a lot of fun for those who love the movies.
The biggest problem with this collection however is not the music. Both albums sound fantastic, even with their faults. My issue is with the pressing of The Curse of the Black Pearl CD. There are numerous pops and clicks throughout the songs, most notable on track seven Barbossa is Hungry starting at the two second mark. I have searched for alternative sources for a clean copy of this album and have came up with the same results each time. How could such a fault be put out to the masses without anyone noticing or caring? I enjoy the music but there is no way I can listen to it in this condition.
Problems like these are not the sellers fault, nor is it Amazon's. I am just sad that no one else has picked up on this problem. So, if you plan on buying this album, just beware of what you're purchasing.
