Product Description

Captain Jack Sparrow is back for more action and adventure on the high seas!. Once again thrown into the world of the super-natural Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds out the he owes a blood debt to the legendary Davey Jones (Bill Nighy), Captain of the ghostly Flying Dutchman. And as if this weren't enough, the Captain's problems manage to wreck the wedding plans of a certain Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Kiera Knightly), who are forced to join Jack on yet another misadventure. Soundtrack includes score by 6 time Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer. It also includes a remix track by DJ Tiesto that will be serviced to radio mix show, clubs and colleges.


The soundtrack for the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was infamous for having been whipped up rather hastily. For the sequel, Hans Zimmer takes the reins and comes up with his best effort in ages. Things start off with a nice cello theme for Johnny Depp's character, "Jack Sparrow." After that, it's high gear all the way, beginning with "The Kraken," on which Zimmer unleashes gales of symphonic aggro. Even when he closely follows what Hollywood execs clearly believe are set-in-stone rules for contemporary soundtracks, he throws in interesting wrenches. He does cram in both wailing female vocals and stomping percussion in "Dinner Is Served," but then the track abruptly turns into the kind of demented waltz you usually get from Danny Elfman. As usual with sequels, winks to the first movie pop in and out--the Black Pearl theme reappears in "I've Got My Eye on You" and "Hello Beastie"--but overall this album is more consistent. At least until you get to the final track, that is, a pounding offering by melodic-trance overlord DJ Tiësto. Pirates, wave your arms in the air like you just don't care. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

The first Pirates Of The Caribbean score is one of the most popular adventure scores of all time and I can't believe it was not nominated. Klaus Badelt composed the score with very little time to do so, which is why Hans Zimmer helped guide him through the process. If you look on the back of the CD case of the first score, you will see that the score is "over"produced by Hans Zimmer. Zimmer did write some stuff for the first film, but Klaus helmed it and it turned out simply amazing. Now the master takes over for the apprentice and Hans Zimmer delivers an excellent but very different score for the sequel.

I think the major difference between the scores is the tone. Badelt's score was much lighter and had an epic feel to it while Zimmer's score is darker and much heavier. Since we are dealing with a trilogy I am assuming that the three films will be different in tone as well. Zimmer's score is a full-blown synth/orchestration that borrows themes from the first score as well as add a whole new feel. We are in the belly of the whale here, and the score definately suggests that. A lot of people will probably say that they enjoyed the first score versus this one, and I can understand that. Hans Zimmer doesn't really establish the main themes that we heard in the first one. Instead he only brings them in once in a while just to remind us that this is a continuation of the first movie and not a reincarnation. The highlight of the album is definately track 2 where we hear some signature Zimmer. He uses a structure that reminds me of his work on King Arthur. I absolutely loved this score and can't wait to hear his score to the trilogy's final installment next summer.

First foremost, and above all Hans Zimmer's score for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" is a perfect fit for the film, and the soundtrack album is a fine representation of most of the music for the Disney epic. Sure, a good deal of it is based on themes from the first "Pirates of the Caribbean," and surely all of the themes thus far will reappear next summer with the third and final chapter, but it is good stuff and almost everyone loves it. We still have some lingering questions about how much of the original themes were Zimmer's work and what should be credited to Klaus Badelt, but by now that is all rather academic. In this score Zimmer makes new use of the original themes, the true foundation of this musical voyage, and pops in new themes and motifs, especially his music for the Kraken and Davy Jones, and a few hornpipes for fun. Darker and more menacing in places with apt use of chorus and organ (or electronic organ) that work particularly well as motifs for the Kraken and Davy Jones (including a rather sentimental music-box theme that is quite touching and foreboding). Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann are all remembered by musical signatures, both in the earlier themes and some new variations, but so are the Caribbean natives. It is all swashbuckling fun, and on that level could not be much better. One thing though; obviously the album was cut before the final version of the film and there is some music that did not make it to the album (much of the opening)...too bad, because we could have done without the Tiesto bonus. Good produciton values and packaging by Disney.

I'm not going to ramble on and give a track by track review. I'm just going to say, if you enjoyed the score to the first movie composed by Klaus Badelt, then you will most defintley enjoy this one.

Hans Zimmer here takes over as the main composer, and he thoroughly and effectivley creates new and wonderful music for this second pirates movie, while still bringing to the table the themes that we heard in the first. One major difference you will notice is the music for this soundtrack is much darker and that is because the overall theme and story for this second movie is darker than the first.

All in all, Highly recommended!! 5 stars

I am somewhat of a connoisseur of soundtracks and Pirates of the Caribbean has been one of my favorites. The first score was unique and exciting and I didn't realize Klaus wasn't doing the new score until just now. I bought this CD before I saw the movie, but waited to see the film to get the full impression.

The second movie has a very different tone than the first. The score keeps much of the same sound of the first, however, which is a good way of tying the two together nicely, in my opinion. Hans Zimmer handles the soundtrack for this movie, and although I am personally a bit more of a fan of Klaus's, he does a nice job.

We are introduced to a revision of Jack's theme, which I find fits the change in character in the movie. The theme is a little darker, a little more unpredictable, but retains the essence we expect. The undertones from the orginal remain.

The Kraken is deep and dark, fitting for the monster portrayed on screen. Begining slow, but steadily increasing, it is fast, overpowering, wild. The organ music associated with Davy Jones is also featured in it, because of the connection of the two. I believe there are electric guitars in the piece as well, which is a nice touch. The theme itself holds the traditional sound for "monster".

I personally find the theme for Davy Jones one of my personal favorites. The track on the score begins with the music box theme featured in the movie. It is fitting for the sad past we are given for the ruthless ruler of the pirate afterlife, and gives him that certain melancholy air. Then the organ music comes bursting through into a sweeping theme that is very much "pirate-y" although organs may not be classic to the pirate sound.
