5.0 out of 5 stars Worth 20 bucks for sure.
Personally a big fan of these two films, and while I used to wince a little seeing Hans' name in the opening credits of practically every movie I saw, he really did a great job on these two films, particularly this one. While I still think the main motif was pretty bland from the first one, it's underplayed a little here, and done a bit better when it's used...

3.0 out of 5 stars Hans Zimmer repeating himself...
Zimmer is either a genius (Inception), an entertaining composer (The Dark Knight) or a complete over-the-top one (Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tide).

Here, he goes completely over the top and gives us "more of the same" with a small twist. Repetitions are legions, bombastic orchestras are here to either sound deafening just because he can do it...

Anyway - if it's cheap, like less than 20 bucks definite purchase.

Zimmer is either a genius (Inception), an entertaining composer (The Dark Knight) or a complete over-the-top one (Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tide).

Here, he goes completely over the top and gives us "more of the same" with a small twist. Repetitions are legions, bombastic orchestras are here to either sound deafening just because he can do it or to bring some sort of musical pathos. Needless to say, most of the arrangements are good, but none of them equal the first movie's musical brilliance and steampunk feel.

Fans of Zimmer's work may be more fond of his scores but I still need the "getting used to" moment to find where his work grabs me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it., March 13 2012

Ce commentaire est de: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Audio CD)
Hans Zimmer is a genius and fans of his soundtracks will surely enjoy this latest compilation. There is some opera mixed in but it blends so well to evoke the scenes it related to. Definitely a great buy.
