I think the score cues on this album are crap and sound like utter trash.
Nearly all of the orchestral moments that were in the tracks in the movie are no longer present on this album and have been completely overshadowed by high-mixing of tacky synth sounds.
This has got to be one of the worst releases of a good score I know off... it's right up there with Silva Screens terrible "wrong cues" re-release of the Supergirl score by Jerry Goldsmith which was great in the movie but sounds dreadful on the Silva Screen CD due to the use of "wrong cues" which have been mixed completely differently with more synths and performed poorly.
POTC Score in the movie - *****/*****
