MMAM - Vol. 35

With the release of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES, I of course checked out the Hans Zimmer/Rodrigo Y Gabriela original soundtrack. Overall, not a disappointment. 75% of the themes established in the trilogy are present and accounted for in this fourth installment, and with the help of Rodrigo, this film definitely has a different feel. More Celtic-y? It keeps the fun, let's just say that. The soundtrack release is a nice blend of the dark, frightening themes (such as "Blackbeard" and "On Stranger Tides") and the more light, action-y fare (such as this).

So give it a listen. It's respectful to what has come before, yet looks onwards to new cthemes and hannels of music.
