Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides Soundtrack
The soundtrack was recently released to accompany Walt Disney’s latest Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, entitled “On Stranger Tides”. This soundtrack has a secret ingredient that makes for success: Hans Zimmer. He has composed the music for quite a few Disney films this year, and his scores keep getting better and better, reflecting the action and emotion as plots develop. Giving this CD a listen, I must say that the second track by world famous guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriel, entitled “Angelica”, jumped out at me as a real standout favorite track. A very passionate sound comes through. Very moving.
The disc contains five tracks, and every one a winner. Other key players that were involved were trumpet ace Arturo Sandoval and big time DJs remixing certain songs. Other favorites include “Mermaids”, which gives of a nice haunting vibe, and “Mutiny”, which has an up tempo, charge-forth sound.
All tracks with Rodrigo Y Gabriel are real stand outs for me. As with most sound tracks, I get to hear them a few weeks or so before the film comes out, so I try to picture the action in my head. It will be nice to see if I come close when I see the film with the music, which is out May 20, 2011. Don’t miss it, mateys. Aaargh!!
