I completely agree. The problem with this score (I liked the first one, in a guilty pleasure sense) is one of half-measures. Hans introduces two kinda neat thematic ideas for Davy Jones (a morricone-style music box theme, and the organ) that have a lot of potential, but mixes them in with liberal quoting from the first film plus a lot of Rock-lite generic action stuff. Thus, in the end, the score took neither approach well. I think the movie could have supported a step-back, focus-on-the-tragedy-of-Davy-Jones-type score, or the rock-classical style of the first one, but not both.
