great score in movie!... crap score on soundtrack CD   Wednesday, March 24, 2004 (6:44 a.m.) 

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 - *****/*****
POTC Score on the album - */*****

Like the movie, Carter Burwells score has been getting some very underserved bad raps. We found the tracks growing on us the same way J. Williams' The Patriot did -- they are moving, deeply felt and powerful. Tracks were clear and full; perhaps other reviewers need new equipment as this is one big score befitting the film. The CD is built to layer one upon the other and the final siege is given no less than four tracks to engulf in the battle, each growing more tormented and vicious than the last. We rate it a definite buy.

PLEASE SHUT UP WHINING ABOUT HOW THE SILVA SCREEN VERSION ISN'T AS GOOD. THE SUPERGIRL VARESE SARABANDE VERSION IS CRAP. LESS THAN HALF THE MUSIC ON THE SILVA SCREEN VERSION. IT'S WAY BETTER PERFORMED AND TO TELL THE TRUTH IF YOU'VE SEEN THE FILM SUPERGIRL THAT MANY TIMES TO NOTICE THAT IT'S THAT DIFFERNET YOU REALLY NEED TO GET A LIFE.............AND A JOB!!
