Album Review

As the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy has unfolded, the films' quirky characters have become even more of a draw than the action and special effects. The music for the films has followed suit, although not at the same pace: Hans Zimmer's score for the final film, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End has a few moments of whimsy, spooky drama and exotic flavor mixed with more typical, churning musical backdrops for the action set pieces. With sawing strings and huge brass and choral sections, tracks such as "At Wit's End," "I Don't Think Now Is the Best Time," and "I See Dead People in Boats" are no doubt serviceable in the film's context, but separated from it, they're too repetitive and overwhelming to be enjoyable. However, "Up Is Down"'s Celtic flair makes it more interesting than many of the other amped-up tracks, while the chanted shanty "Hoist the Colours" and mischievous, sinister "Multiple Jacks" prove that the score's quieter moments are the most entertaining. It's also too bad that Keith Richards, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow's pirate dad, isn't featured somehow in the music — it's a missed opportunity that makes this send-off for Captain Jack and his maties just a little less satisfying.

Customer Reviews

Satisfactory but not Sufficient

This soundtrack does not contain all the music from this film, there are significant pieces of music which are missing eg, THE BRETHREN COURT is incomplete, SINGAPORE is incomplete, UP IS DOWN - incomplete, I DON'T THINK NOW IS THE BEST - incomplete. If you listen to the music in the film you'll notice there is quite a significant proportion of music that is missing.

Keep up the good work Hans!

Yet another great score from Hans. I especially like Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho and Parlay. A MUST HAVE ALBUM!!!


This album is the best pirates of the caribbean album yet! It has all the best songs and i think up is down is the best. I once tried playing the song at school on my violin but it was too hard.

One of the most prolific film composers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Hans Zimmer was born September 12, 1957 in Frankfurt, Germany; after relocating to London as a teen, he later wrote advertising jingles for Air-Edel Associates, and in 1980 collaborated with the Buggles on their LP The Age of Plastic and its accompanying hit "Video Killed the Radio Star." A stint with Ultravox followed before Zimmer next surfaced with the Italian avant-garde group Krisma; he then formed a partnership...
