As much as I can't stand how Clems constantly attacks Zimmer and Remote Control, I must agree with him in this instance. The CD as pressed is a horrid representation of Zimmer's score.
The remixes are just awful. They simply do not belong. Fans of Zimmer, me included, have been ripped off, with just a paltry 20-30 minutes of orchestral work. I've never been a fan of techno, and this only strengthens my resolve.
When "Dead Man's Chest" was released, I remember how disappointed I was in that there was SO much good music left off the CD, Zimmer instead choosing to add techno remixes. When "At World's End" came out, I thought to myself, "This is what the previous CD should have been like."
What I've been forced to do is rip the CD onto my computer, and then promptly send the remixes to the trash bin. They are just horrible.
Now, we have this abomination of a "score", and I use that term loosely. The cues are short, even the fantastic "He's A Pirate" theme. Fans of soundtracks want what they hear in the movies - a respectable representation of the music we enjoy.
I can see where this is heading, however, as Amazon.com has two different jacket images for the CD.
