How does his "techno style" echo through K*19?? As he said himself, Badelt is considered the "classical guy" at MV by his peers. He scored mostly with synths in The Recruit because that's what the director asked for.
Having heard PIRATES, I can assure you that it is mostly orchestra (conducted by Badelt himself) and sounds most similar to the heroic action music in GLADIATOR and PEARL HARBOR (which I think is a good thing). The PIRATES score will appeal to those who were disappointed by the missing music from PH.
