Hans Zimmer ft. Rodrigo & Gabriela
If you haven't yet seen the Pirates of the Caribbean films, then stop whatever you're doing, find the nearest movie theatre, video rental store, smartphone, etc. and correct your fatal pop-culture oversight immediately. If you have seen the films then, surprise, you have a pretty good idea of what this album sounds like (if you even glance at the "Sounds Like" section, seek help). Although, where Disney's marketing genious really comes into play and makes this a surprisingly listenable album is in the second half.
