Editorial Reviews

Original soundtrack to the 2011 blockbuster featuring Hans Zimmer and Rodrigo and Gabriela. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love-or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh? May 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, it's a little disappointing. I mean how couldn't it be? You had the first soundtrack which was incredible. The follow up came blasting in with new themes like Jack Sparrow, Kraken, and Davy Jones to work with so it was also pretty great. At World's End was just mind blowing conclusion to a trilogy with no filler tracks or disappointments at all. So after a trilogy of successful, mind-blowing music, it's obviously gonna be a little tough to follow up. So that said, you may feel a bit disappointed if you listen to At Worlds End and then this. The addition of Rodrigo y Gabriela was nice but alas, there were ZERO new themes. Blackbeard and Angelica are good tracks, but they're not confident and bold like Davy Jones or the Jack Sparrow themes. Hans Zimmer has been known to experiment a lot and it often REALLY works for him like on Inception or the Dark Knight. But there's not much room for experimentation on Pirates of the Caribbean. Folks wanna hear bold themes that set themselves apart not ambient music.

Hans Zimmer still is and always will be my hero. He's a great composer who has never composed a bad piece of music. His only flaw is he sets our expectations far too high haha! The album is still pretty good though. I suggest the tracks 3 - Mutiny, 7 - Palm Tree Escape, and 11 - End Credits (can't get enough of that good ol' theme song).

4.0 out of 5 stars Why??? May 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I love the music of Hans Zimmer, and the music on this album is no exception. In fact, if you purchased this album at all there's a good chance you love his music as well. The presence of these "remixes" on his music is kinda silly in that if you sought this album out, then chances are you didn't want to hear techno. So why couldn't they give us more of the reason that we actually bought this album rather than the annoying space fillers? I grudgingly subtract a star for this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who wants those damn remixes? May 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I just saw the movie today and was blown away by how great the music was. Every cue was so great, every single theme was woven together with great detail. I love Hans Zimmer, I love what he did in the film. I absolutely hate what the did on this album. Who in their right mind would make a third of the music on a film's album dumb ass techno remixes?
Zimmer deserves the pay from this album but whoever srewed with it should definately get the boot.
Sad, sad day.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Flavor to Pirates May 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides provides a distinct Spanish flavor to accompany the plot line that takes place in a Spanish controlled Florida. While the soundtrack lacks the awesome power displayed in the previous 3 soundtracks (in particular, in At World's End), it features the unique guitar talent of Rodrigo and Gabriela. The songs have an intricate beauty that some people may miss.
The soundtrack brings back themes from the first three movies, yet I think it doesn't overdo it.
My biggest gripe is the seven remix tracks. I didn't care for the remix in Davy Jones Locker, and I really think this cd overdoes it. I'd much rather hear more orchestra or more Spanish-style guitar.

All in all, great CD, but not the best of the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Zimmer fan, but. . . May 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
. . .soooo many issues. And mostly with the album.

As I headed with, I am a Hans Zimmer fan. I have always found his sound to be engaging, fun and a great way to get more people interested in film music. That's not to say I think everything he's done has been perfect. I have my own issues every now and then, but I can usually look past them and find enjoyment. I am in no way one of the purist, rancid trolls from, or even certain reviewers here, whose personal vendetta against Zimmer and his particular style I greatly resent. Sorry you don't enjoy it but it has proven to be greatly successful, so either adapt or go extinct. This continues to be a silly means for criticism these days.

The Pirates scores have been a personal favorite, but I felt all suffered from missing material on the album. However, On Stranger Tides takes that to a whole new level.

Let's knock off almost half the album by ignoring the seven tracks of remixes. They should have been more courteously put on a separate CD that everyone could ignore at their leisure.

Now for the new material written for the film. The big headline back in February was that Zimmer would be working with Mexican/Irish guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela. Their involvement here is varied between tracks like "Angelica" and "Palm Tree Escape", which feels like Zimmer's writing with RodGab performing or adding flair; and "The Pirate That Should Not Be" and "Angry and Dead Again", which feel like an original RodGab piece with hints of Zimmer thrown in to remind us this is Pirates music.

These tracks take up a majority of the non-remix CD, and are pretty enjoyable listens.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather Disappointing May 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack of "Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is rather disappointing. For a film that contained such a grand score that was quite evident throughout the length of the movie this soundtrack is sorely lacking. This soundtrack has hacked the score to pieces. We get only snippets here and there of what the score sounded like in the film. The music on this CD is a totally different experience from that found in the film. Tracks 1, 5 and 11 are good, but most of what was truly impressive about the score is not present on this album. As for the Remixes, I will only say that I would have preferred more of the score in place of them.

Half of the songs are remixes, which is fine except I paid for a soundtrack with instrumental music from the movie, not a dance remix to fill in disc space.
