Some Unreleased Music   Friday, February 20, 2004 (11:14 p.m.) 

First off I must say that CutThroat Island's soundtrack is simply amazing! It is perhaps the most exhaustingly yet enjoyable score I have ever heard (Great to listen to while you drive, especially "Carriage Chase"). The movie that it belongs to is really NOT as bad as most people make it out to be. Sure it had very cut-out characters and bad acting at points and a very odd and at times overdone storyline... but like the soundtrack... there is something very fun about the film. Its not meant to be taken seriously, it was meant to be an explosive and action-packed adventure (which it definately was). Its definately more entertaining and fun to watch compared to some recent summer blockbusters that DO make it big (sighs).

Anyway... I bet you are interested in my topic saying "Some Unreleased Music". Well as we all know, there is virtually NO release of an 'original' soundtrack that contains ALL the music from the films they came from (because of the space on the cd I would wager). Well, with CutThroat, there are plenty of cues not on the Original Soundtrack, but really folks, most of it you can live without (The missing cues are only fun to listen to a couple times)... EXCEPT for the music when Morgan and Dawg do their final battle on the ship (for those who have seen the movie, they know what I am talking about). It is perhaps the one (and should REALLY be the only cue) that anyone would really miss from the Cutthroat Island Original Soundtrack that isnt there. Well people, using DVD extraction tools, I have been able to get that 5 minute piece of thrilling unreleased music, and have it available for download. But before you ask... no I will not release any other unreleased cues or any of the Original Soundtrack cues. This is a one-and-only thing, and hopefully this cue alone will help promote people to buy the Original Soundtrack.

The link is below (in blue italics) in the best quality that you could possibly get from a DVD extraction. It isn't perfect in any way, but it is very listenable. There are some slight sound effects that pop up from time to time (an unavoidable and un-cleanable thing present on any dvd extract), but nothing too major to ruin it. And no dialogue. This is probably the best it will ever get, unless a official release of the cue is made (doubt it). Tell me if I did a good job restoring this lost treasure.

Note: Its a approx. 14mb file.

Well... looks like my little extract track was all for nothing, since now the 2CD complete version of the score is released. Well it was good for the time it was made though, hehe. So disregard the download, go get the 2CD version. I know I will.
