  1. Ordered, along with Trek. I never had the original album, so this will be a nice release.
  2. I like it. The Mummy, crossed with Raiders crossed with Jaws!
  3. The samples sound amazing, can't wait! "Plot Course" sounds a like Dennis The Menace in one part...
  4. Da dadada dadada!!!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!! I'm gonna get it for Christmas!
  5. Saw the film this morning. Don't think the score was particulary amazing to be honest.
  6. Saw the film this morning. Don't think the score was anything worth writing home about...
  7. Could someone please list which cues from this set are not used in the film? I haven't got the DVD to check! So far I think I've figured out that 'Owls Flight' isn't, are there any more? Simple answers please!
  8. Long hair, Barbossa wannabe beard, cigar.......... BUT NO BLACK TURTLENECK!
  9. I'm going with DCC because I have a soft spot for it. Plus the Concord one was riddled with errors and the edited 'Desert Chase' cue was insulting and, quite frankly, unforgivable.
  10. +1. Can't believe they put that on and missed off "Entry Into The Great Hall".....
  11. We watched the DVD in the comfort of our own living room.....and loved every minute of it.....again! "Let's see if you b******* can do 90!!"
  12. There certainly is! And yes you're right, that little playful cue is wonderful. Also the whole Escape From Pelegosto Island, The Three-Way Duel / Fight For The Key etc. The score gets a total bashing in most places, and if you've only heard what's on the OST then I agree that it's poor. However, like we've just seen with Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Stone, when you get to hear the complete score in film order, it actually sounds like a different score. The OST is just a mis-match of themes going everywhere without any structure, but with the unreleased bits you can really hear (and in my case, appreciate) how the score fully develops throughout the film. I wholeheartedly agree. Dead Man's Chest OST is awful, plain and simple. But if you compare the album version to the film version of cues, wow ! Like you said, Escape From Pelegostos Island is way better than Jack Sparrow (its album counterpart), and so is Davy Jones organ version. Same goes for The Thee-Way Duel and The Wheel Of Fortune. But as always with Zimmer, a lot of his cues are way better in their film version than in their album counterpart... 100% agree! Wonder if we'll ever see expanded/complete editions of the Pirates saga, especially 2 & 3? I've noticed a lot of Zimmer's Pirate film versions of cues often have more drum overlays and a more powerful feel to what's presented on the OST. Williams is a menace when it comes to arranging OSTs! Some of his editing choices to create a 'listening experience' leave a lot to be desired...
