5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Depp for Emperor September 2, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am nearly fifty years old. A sober grown man. With children. Children with whom I have now sat through hundreds of movies. Many of which I have enjoyed. And I am not completely hardened in my sophistication. The opening music to The Lion King brought tears to my eyes when my little ones were but wee tots.
But still, these are after all just children's movies. In another life, I would never have seen them. And, really, one can't take such movies too seriously, can one?
And so, this summer, after the ritual badgering, I dutifully trudged into yet another Disney "adventure" movie. Named after that tired old ride in Anaheim I first went on in 1965. I mean really, how much can you expect?
And then, it happened. The swirling intoxication. The stunned feeling. What? Who? How? Was this a movie? Or a religious experience? Perhaps more like an addictive experience...
I cannot remember ever willingly paying to see any movie not starring a relative of mine more than twice, and I can count those movies on one hand. I have now seen "Pirates" four times. The only thing keeping me from seeing it again is the sense that this whole thing is just getting out of hand. I cannot get enough of it. It's like walking into a painting that you never want to come back out of. My children ask, with a note of concern in their voices, "Dad, you really like Pirates of the Caribbean a lot, don't you?"
And that Depp fellow. My God. I never had any idea who he was, but his name sounded like something created for a pubescent cover-boy for magazines published to hook thirteen year-old girls on make-up and bad music. Wasn't Depp the name of some hair-goo product back in the 60s?
I am a straight male.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great score / somewhat garbled presentation August 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
First of all, a wonderful score to a wonderful movie. Jack's theme is especially moving when played in its crescendo. The volume and pace is not something I regularly like being a devout fan of John Williams' work, but Badelt here has composed a score that will keep the tune and the movie in your head for hours. It makes me want to listen again and again.
But part of the reason I have to listen again and again is that the CD itself is so short. Only 43 minutes worth of music for an almost 2.5 hour movie? I would love to see a soundtrack at least once contain all (or almost all as space allows) music in the correct order.
One major gripe: I wonder what fool got a hold of this CD and wrote the track listing...they're either one jump ahead or one step behind. It's very confusing when trying to visualize events in the movie coinciding with the music. A better listing might be this:
1. Fog Bound
2. Will and Elizabeth / Jack Sparrow Appears / The Medallion Calls
3. Jack's Near Escape
4. Swords Crossed
5. The Black Pearl
6. The Black Pearl (cntd) / Commandeering the Interceptor
It gets confusing between tracks 7-10 - I've narrowed it down to: Sailing on the Interceptor / Ritual in the Cave / Elizabeth's Rescue / The Pearl Gives Chase / Battle / Walking the Plank
11. Duel in the Cave / Battle on the Dauntless / Jack is Cursed
12. Duel / Battle / Elizabeth to the Rescue / Last Shot
13. Curse is Lifted / Death of Barbosa / Opportune Moment / Black Pearl is Gone / Underwater March (for some insane reason, the marching pirates are placed at the very end of this track)
14. Jack's Rescue / He's a Pirate / Jack and the Black Pearl
15. Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho! / End titles (shortened)
Great fun to listen to though - pick it up today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible music, but Disney shortchanged it. July 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
For starters: I don't know if Klaus Badelt or Hans Zimmer was responsible for the rousing main theme of the movie (aka Jack Sparrow's theme) but whoever it was, THANK YOU. Brilliant job.
This is a wonderful, wonderful soundtrack. As others have noted, when I first heard that epic theme blasting out as Jack approached the harbor, I wanted nothing more than to commandeer a ship and devote my life to piracy (ahoy!). I went out and bought the CD... and... well...
Disney did a very poor job in organizing it, IMO. There's only about forty minutes of music on this CD - I haven't had the luxury of seeing the movie as often as I want to analyze missing music, but I'm fairly certain several key scenes with good music don't have a place on the soundtrack. Further, the exciting and wonderful end credits... which I stayed in the theater for... aren't here. The beginning of the end credits - "He's a Pirate" - is there, but it cuts off after only minute and thirty seconds. Arg!
I'm giving this CD five stars anyway because the music really IS good enough to forgive the abridged version. For those that would like to see a full-length CD released, I recommend writing Disney and asking about it. This is a marvelous, marvelous soundtrack and it belongs on the shelf of anyone who loves a rousing score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly suggested if you liked the movie... March 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't own that many movie soundtracks but I was very excited when I got this one. I absolutely love it, despite some of it's short-comings. The one MAJOR complaint I have is the length: way too short. Cheapie Disney ppl... The track listings are totally scrambled and mislabeled. Some person did however make a more acurate track listing that I printed out and put in my CD case:
1) Fog bound/Will & Elizabeth
2)Will& Elizabeth/Jack Sparrow appears
3)The Medallion calls/ Jack's near escape
4)Swords Crossed
5)The Black Pearl
6)The Black Pearl cont./commandeering the Interceptor
7-10) gets confusing - sailing on interceptor/ Ritual in cave/Elizabeth's rescue/The Pearl gives chase/Battle/Walking the plank
11)Duel in the cave/ Battle on the Dauntless/Jack is cursed
12)Duel/Battle/Elizabeth to the rescue/Last shot
13)Curse is lifted/ Death of Barbossa/Opportune moment/Pearl is gone/ Underwater march (for some insane reason the Marching Pirates are placed at the end of this track)
14)Jack's rescue/He's a Pirate/ Jack & The Pearl
15) End titles (drastically shortened, if you want the real thing I suggest just recording it off the DVD itself since that's the best part of the soundtrack)
When you first listen to the CD it sounds weird w/ lots of what I'd call "crackling" on the booming parts, it probably has something to do the recording but I have found if you have a CD player that has a "live" or orchestra setting, it takes the crackles out. (the mega base seems to make it worse)
In any case it's and extreamly moving get-up-and-do-something soundtrack. I can't tell you how much fun it is to listen to. I recently figured out how to play afew of the pieces on the guitar and that's almost as fun ^_^. If you liked the movie I'd really suggest getting the soudntrack, it's a LOT of fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Music
If you're into movie soundtracks, or epic music, POTC would be another decent choice to add to your collection. I just wish some tracks were a little longer. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Background
The movies are fun, Depp is well suited to the role. The soundtrack is great in parts, but overall lacks the excitement of the film.
