No...because he's not John Debney. He's not Alan Silvestri. He's not Korngold. If you had Debney or Silvestri write scores for POTC (the initials could be used for another Debney score ), chances are they would write different-sounding scores. The sound in POTC is Zimmer's sound. If they didn't want Zimmer's sound,they wouldn't have hired Zimmer. And anything but Zimmer's sound wouldn't be all that popular with the franchise's target audience. Obviously, if it sounded like it was coming from the forties like many seem to want, it wouldn't sell much at all.

And I'm still trying to figure out why Black Pearl isn't swash-buckling. Oh well...

And this has been another inarticulate post from Cheno.
