I have to say, with no offence meant to anyone and their opinions, that I liked both the score and the movie for non Depp related reasons, although he did an excellent job. Yeah, the score isn't a masterpiece, and even my untrained ear can tell there are only one or two themes. Despite this, Pirates wasn't intended to be a classic, it was just a fun summer flick! I own the soundtrack (legally, mind you) because I think some of it's catchy, and honestly enjoy a few songs and I'm not ashamed of it! The Pirates soundtrack is definitely nowhere near Lord of the Rings, as an example. But hey, lotr isn't exactly easy listening by itself, with all the demonic chanting and such.
Major improvements could've been made to this soundtrack, but to all those musically inclined ears out there, please donít judge it on a level itís not capable of competing on. If you donít like it, donít listen to it.
