I also love that there are some choral bits in this album (The Brethren Court, I Don't Think Now is the Best Time).
On to the piece-by-piece run-through:
1. Hoist the Colours - 9.5/10: I love this. The boy's song, the drums and other pirates in the background, all make for a beautiful, haunting way to start off the soundtrack. I only wish they'd included more of it on the CD.
2. Singapore - 7/10: It's not my favorite because it's rather slow in places, but eventually it moves into that adventurous, swooping music that you'd expect.
3. At Wit's End - 10/10: Brilliant! This serves as an intro to the action in the film. All the various themes are mixed in to make for beautiful, epic music.
4. Multiple Jack's - 7.5/10: This is really weird - it includes odd instrumental choices for a pirate movie. But it also works very well, because hey, it's about Jack Sparrow.
5. Up Is Down - 8/10: Upbeat and playful, it gives you hints of the main themes.
6. I See Dead People In Boats - 9/10: Slow and haunting. Love the string instruments.
7. The Brethren Court - 8/10: Bits of the chorus and occassional increases in tempo make it work.
8. Parlay - 7.5/10: A little odd as it slinks into a sort of cowboy-style, but it keeps you on your toes.

I believe that some people who were really in love with the first soundtrack's lightheartedness and hijinks may find this one a bit of a disappointment (and perhaps maybe not). While many of the old themes are used in the span of the entire CD, they are relied upon far less than the previous two, with the obvious exception of Jack's theme. We do, however, hear the old themes, but in different ways. Davy Jones' theme is indeed played on a music box in "At Wit's End" but then it shifts into a moving symphonic rendition. And the East India Trading Company theme, or Beckett's Theme, is given a new feel from the original dulcimer- an electric guitar ("Parley").
It is very epic- as is Hans Zimmer's way, I could hear cues from such movies as The da Vinci Code, King Arthur, and even a tone or two that reminded me of Gladiator. Regardless, this CD definitely has its own feel- there are parts of it that sound vast and whimsical, upbeat and playful, romantic and lighthearted, creepy and dank, and of course, silly and drunk, as is most noticeable in "Multiple Jacks."
The new romantic theme, which is introduced in "At Wit's End," is beautiful and flowing. In fact, it seems a bit surprising on this particular soundtrack, given the feel of the other two soundtracks. It has an ethereal flair to it, and is very orchestral and full.
However, I am loathe to compare this to the other two because of the fact, mainly, that the movie has not officially been released yet, and it's obviously an entirely seperate movie.Read more ›

Of all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, this is my favorite soundtrack!!!Published 25 days ago by Virginia E Moyers
Hans Zimmer has been, and continues to be, one of my favorite movie score composers of all time. He masterfully injects personality, tension, whit, and adventure. Read morePublished 1 month ago by A. Bunce
I love it! All the music scores and a very well done Dance, Techno mix at the end very well done!Published 5 months ago by Jeffrey B.
Rounds out the trilogy nicely and lots of action. The story line worked out nicely with good over-the-top acting but this is a fantasy after all. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Alfred Smith
The "Pirates" scores are wonderful and classic. This is no exception to a library of the musical scores.Published 6 months ago by James A. Randall Jr.
This is a fun album. The music is superb -- if you like this kind of thing.
It is one of the CDs in my car!

Seems like there are a lot of oddities and omissions in the soundtrack we're given. "I Don't Think Now is the Best Time" is greatly reduced, the entirety of the end credits isn't present, and many of the fight scenes (especially noting the first fight scene) are cut.
However... the... Read More

Unfortunately, no. The music from the trailer is not in the movie or on the soundtrack. It was created by "X-Ray Dog", a team of composers who have created music for many of the great trailers, movies, and television shows. Sadly, their music is not available to the public (at least,... Read More

|Jack's Intro Theme||
Yes. It is not a stand alone track, as it is included after about 2 1/2 minutes into Track #2, Singapore. It lasts maybe 30 seconds, but it is the theme played in full w/ the backdrop of choir. If I am correct it appears in full on the first soundtrack as well. Just a note, Hans Zimmer could... Read More
