THis score has got to be one of the best, if not THE best Media Ventures score ever written. Sure it Sounds like a lot of other scores from Media Ventures but none of them compare to this baby.

Next, would somebody do their research!? Pirates of the Caribbean is not a bloody kid's movie like Peter Pan. It is a story about these pirates that have ben cursed to be half-skeletons who are rotting away constantly. What the hell is so "Swash-buckling" about that, you twit?

Why the critic here is complaining about research done is beyond me. I watched an interview with Jerry Bruckheimer and he specifically said that the Music that Alan Sylvestri had done for the "Swords Crossed" scene was to silly to be used and that is why they brought on Hans Zimmer and Media Ventures. Also that "electric guitar" that the critic mentions is not even there. There is a big difference between an electric guitar and an ELECTRIC CELLO and that was an ELECTRIC CELLO.

One last thing, it says to avoid the CD if synthetic cellos haunt your nightmares. Well to be completely honest, the only song with all fakes strings is "The Black Pearl". In the rest the brass is synthetic and the strings are real. There you have it.
