It's been ages since I last bought a soundtrack really, because the soundtracks of many shows these days are more of like, compilations of rock bands. The music of POTC caught my attention near the beginning of the song, and I was impressed then. When I bought it and listened to it I was really delighted because the music is really great and brings out every vital feeling in the different parts of the show itself. It was almost perfect to me, save for the fact that I felt the music variation wasn't too great. Still I think this soundtrack is a must-have for anyone who enjoyed the brilliant movie .
