At least it sounds better than 'Pirates'

I listened to that 'Pirates of the Caribbean' score as I watched it, and nearly rolled my eyes. Both Klaus Badelt and Harry Gregson-Williams have roots at Media Ventures, and while both scores weren't much to write home about, I can at least thank Gregson-Williams for not resorting to that overused Media Ventures' trademark sound!
I don't think I'm going to lay all the blame for 'Pirates' on Badelt, though. It sounded a lot like Hans Zimmer's style, and 'Pirates' merely credited Badelt's name at the end. Zimmer, for some reason, likes to hide behind his proteges. Anyway, I was getting a little irritated towards the end, because there was nothing but that cliched boisterous orchestra shooting off rounds all at the same time during the action cues, sounding a lot like 'The Gladiator,' although a little less disjointed and more focused.
I apologize to readers here. I know you wanted to read reviews of the 'Sinbad' score, and I give you 'Pirates.' The truth is, at the time this was being written, there was no review for the score to 'Pirates,' and I felt that it needed a long-winded tirade, so I didn't wait. I hope it helped, regardless!
