I love Hanz Zimmer's music. I listen to a few of his soundtracks. The music from Pirates is beautiful, toe-tapping, and extremely adictive! I can't stop listening to it! The Kraken is one of the best pieces in my opinion. I prefer DMC's soundrack from the Curse of the Black Pearl's, because it has more variety of music, from a waltz, to a beat-filled remix of He's A Pirate, to many other styles. It's a great CD for traveling.
