what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.
TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.
It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsameNo no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?
Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.

What's the probability of this score seeing an official expanded release like the second movie got?


Mike2013-05-20 09:06:39
Rather low, m'friend. Hans Zimmer scores almost never get expanded releases. Hans himself isn't big into those, for some reason (he would do well to learn from Lorne Balfe in that regard... :P). The only reason The Dark Knight got an extended release was because the movie was so immensely popular and that would give the studio even more money. I assume the same can be said for the upcoming Man of Steel album: either the studio is convinced that the film will make a lot of money, and so releasing more music is worth it, or Water Tower had grat sales with The Hobbit's score.

Either way, I wouldn't hold out for a Batman Begins "official" expanded release short of divine intervention. Though believe me, I'd be quite happy if such a thing happened.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-20 10:09:55
Actually, HZ isn't "against" the idea... Trust me if there's one who would like to see mixes of TLK, TTRL or Black Hawk Down released, it's him !

The problem is he doesn't really have time to give to the past, it's always "the next project" and it never ends.


Anonymous2013-05-20 18:09:23
I wish he would pass it on to someone else to do. I'm sure someone at RCP would love to be given a unique project like that. I know I would haha.


Mike2013-05-20 21:45:59
Interesting...Well, maybe one day he'll be able to take a break like John Powell is doing and get stuff like this rolling.


Lucius2013-05-20 21:53:20
I concur, Anonymous. I love hearing that Hans Zimmer will be scoring a film, but there are a lot of "blossoming" talents at RCP who would probably appreciate the chance to do whole scores and not just additional music/arrangements.

I don't suppose there are any petitions for a two-disc BB soundtrack floating around, are there? :P


Aragorn2013-05-20 22:03:04
Do petitions work for this kinda thing?


Mike2013-05-20 22:05:41
Actually, if I'm remembering correctly, I believe it was a petition that got the first Transformers score released (and that was an excellent album if you ask me!).


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-20 22:22:55
The CD was always planned. Like Armageddon, just very bad timing...


Gator2013-05-21 01:25:16
Yes, the Transformers score was planned from the very beginning, and it was decided to have it released at the same time as the DVD.
Not knowing that, many people got pissed, and started a (useless) petition.


Mike2013-05-21 01:53:24
Well, okay then. No hope for an expanded Begins release, I guess.

Aragorn2013-04-10 07:19:52
Speaking of Batman pwning ninjas, I think it's a shame that the cue for that scene was cut short on the Begins album. There was one really cool part that's missing.

This has to be my favorite score of this trilogy. There was a mysterious quality to it that the others lacked. Maybe it was because it used the two-note theme a lot, which Zimmer said "almost had a question" in it.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2012-12-28 06:37:00
So to clarify my question: This is not a recording sessions album, but an expanded? Does that explain why there's five tracks missing?

If I only had a nickel for every time I see a die-hard Zimmer & Howard fan demanding the expanded or complete film score of Batman Begins... and I happened to be one of them.


Mike2012-12-28 01:10:46
A two-CD release like we got for TDK would be really, really awesome. Problem is, I think TDK only got that since the movie was so popular. This movie wasn't.

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2012-12-27 09:01:17
Question, Hybrid:

You said you couldn't give the credits for this score since the main stuff was written by both Hans and James, with Hans sometimes using James' stuff and James sometimes using Hans' stuff. You said, though, that you could give the credits for TDK since it's more clear-cut.

However, TDK has quite a bit of temp music in it (LSI Extraction is Batman Visits Gordon, Trip to Hong Kong is Preparing Equipment, You're Gonna Love Me is part of Fight in Crane's Lab)...SO THE QUESTION, THEN, is this: if you can say who composed the temp music in TDK, can you say who composed the same thing in Begins or not?

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2012-12-26 01:52:52
Something I find interesting about this score is the lack of theme suite material on CD3 (besides Ra's Al Ghul and Batman Theme). It's mostly alternate cues. Speaking of which, it seems we got the alternate version of Batmobile Chase on the album. I wonder why.

Oh, and Merry Christmas, everybody.

Guys, he already said it's too hard for this one. And besides, he's been nice enough to give us the credits to At World's End, TDKR, and (soon) TDK, so be thankful for what we have.

I cant tell you exactly but in batman begins it is like 70% james newton howard and 30% hans zimmer

james newton howard does the slower more romantic feeling

and hans zimmer does the action sequences

I Can say the same thing in the dark knight Ex. Watch the world burn


Mr. Charles2012-07-24 00:32:27
I think you guys are wrong. I found a site that has the slate numbers of the cues that JNH composed. There were only a handful of them. And there is a LOT of action music in BB.

The same view for TDK. HZ composed the majority, JNH did the rest, and then Lorne Balfe and Henry Jackman each have a cue.

Also, notice how on the front of each it says "Music Composed by Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard", not vice versa


Mike2012-11-30 08:25:03
Yeah, I definitely think Anonymous is mistaken. There's no way Begins is 70% Howard and 30% Zimmer. When most people think of the score (with me included), they think of the Hans Zimmer parts of it.


Hybrid Soldier2012-11-30 13:47:55
It's a bit more complicated than that... It's HZ/JNH, that's all !

Ramin had a big input as well. Everyone forgets about that.

Mel's cues are pretty obvious (Titles, Bruce Discomfort, Mugging, Crane's Mask...). Lorne arranged some cues (Backup...).


Mike2012-11-30 19:13:29
Fair enough, Hybrid. :)


Mike2012-11-30 19:16:06
Hmm, so Mel did the stuff that sounds more ambient than musical...Interesting.

What exactly is the point of all the alternate mixes? Were they written "just in case"?


Dawn2012-10-08 09:49:10
I think they composed the "aternate mixes" first, then the director or production asked for "more strings here, less drums here". The composer has to change those details, and try the new version over the pictures.
The writing process is always tricky, and the first version of a cue is rarely the "good one". Though alternate mixes aren't very interesting to listen to, they give good insight of how one cue evolved !


Hybrid Soldier2012-10-08 10:54:36
And generally it's not even the composer doing that, but the music mixer, who has the various stems he mixes.

There's an 8 CDs version !

CD5 contains a 60+min suite I've done. CD6 contains the commercial soundtrack arrangements. CD6-7 contain the complete score played backwards. CD-8 contains all the actions cues with more drums added by a friend who knows how to use an audio software ! A-MA-ZING !

Yeah, I am sarcastic. =)

Please, stop the carnage. Guys, STOP putting more and more fanmade, useless stuff online !


Anonymous2011-07-24 20:37:22
Its a fan-made disc by a Shrine user called Arial :S


Anonymous2011-07-27 16:24:20
@Dawn: Wow, two times CD6? xD


Yabadapada2011-07-27 16:42:20
there is also an ultra rare 7th CD with a long burp of Chris nolan (7 secs long) and a record of Christian Bale (it's Batman! oops sorry for the spoiler) screaming at Wally Pfister named : "Am I trashing your lights???!!!" 25 min long : collector!
nah , seriously it's getting annoying all this fanmade stuff as Dawn said..

Where is "Courthouse (part2)" in the first CD ? It's probably the music where Bruce Wayne wants to kill his parent's murderer, but a woman do it before him... This music is not in this Recording Sessions...

Indeedo! Awesome cues. And of course Batman Theme :D

david reply Replies: 0 || 2011-05-25 10:30:50
It's interesting how different versions of cues were used in the film.

When the bats come to the asylum it's the version that plays when the credits start making "back up" unused.

The beginning of final confrontation is tracked in with the same bit from the chase scene.

Batmobile chase while a few seconds longer than the alternate still doesn't have the film version which includes a couple more uses of the main theme and a great drum bit when the batmobile does a 180 in the tunnel.

Where is Courthouse (Part 2) and One More Container / On The Roof?? There are two tracks missing I believe.


Uga2011-05-24 01:57:23
They are the only ones missing. I hope we get them somehow.


John 2011-05-24 04:25:42
I just realized theres a bit missing on "Preparing Equipment" when Flass starts the ignition on the car and we see Batman crouching over on a roof putting his black mask on. There was music in those few seconds, but it's not on this release. Also is "Crane Warns Rachel" the rejected / original version to when Bruce is at the pay phone and sees Rachel?


Agent Smith2011-05-24 09:17:41
i would love to get the corthouse cue where the murdering happens, it's really dramatic pure in there, but i doubt we'll get it ever.


John 2011-05-25 00:12:01
Can anyone identify any film versions on CD3 for me? I believe some are film edits such as "Gordon Says Thanks (Alternate)". Is there any other film edits?

Just search for it, easy as that!!

Now we just need the 3 pirate recording sessions, especially the rumored 4 disc at world's end.

i would LOVE to have FULL scores from the POTC movies... i would gladly pay for them if they released them


michael2011-05-23 08:21:33
Yeh same, I wouldn't care the price just to have the recording sessions to DMC and At world's end, especially having the complete finale battle from AWE.

David reply Replies: 0 || 2011-05-23 05:08:30
In a perfect world, every movie score would be treated to a commercially available complete release, so that everyone who wanted it would be able to gladly pay for it and support it's composer legitimately. But unfortunately, we instead live in a world where the general public overlooks the magnificent works of art that are film scores such as this one and instead gravitates towards the equalized beeping noises that are mainstream music. Unfortunately, this means that in order to experience them with the complete treatment they deserve, we're forced to do so illegitimately through the underground. It's a sad fact, and it's made even sadder by the fact that commercial film music releases are becoming less and less complete.

Which composer did what tracks?

Yes I too would like to know which composer did what, like we have for TDK. Please.

I guess hybrid was right when he said this isn't complete. Some tracks are still missing actually, but this is still an extraordinary piece of art.

Bad idea. Now the studio will find it track it down and have it removed... if you find out its leaked don't mention it on here... >.<

A Pirates of The Caribbean 1,2 & 3 Recording Sessions would be epic, I'm a fan of the POTC scores. It'll be cool to have those too.


Anonymous2011-05-22 03:59:55
The leak was actually removed within minutes of @Brads post...like @anon said I'm pretty sure this is basically the hornets nest, aka definitely not the place you want to talk about this kind of stuff in.

Well, they're guarding this thing like it's Fort Knox. If you want it you'll need some tricks up your sleeve and connections in the right places.

This just sucks, but I'm sure "somehow" it'll get around. But wait, than how did the TDK Recording Sessions leak without it getting removed?


Anonymous2011-05-22 04:12:54
It did get removed, it just took longer. And by the time it WAS removed, enough people had it where it was impossible to stop it from spreading. That fact is probably why this is being guarded so heavily, because of what happened with TDK.


Anonymous2011-05-22 04:16:24
So I just got lucky with TDK. I was really looking forward to having BB as well. Hell, I'd rather have the King Kong than BB.

Tried it there, a number of times. Should give it a few more days.


Brad2011-05-22 14:23:44
Sorry for possibly alerting the "higher-ups" about this, but I knew that you all here would definitely want to know when this leaked. Fortunately, I was able to snatch it up before it was removed and let me whet your appetite for it that much more, because this score is possibly my favorite Zimmer score of all time now! Every cue is noteworthy, but especially Train Fight! It is awesome to finally hear that track in full now. The only thing that could be better than this Recording Sessions is a Complete Score to At World's End. That is truly Zimmer's masterpiece. Maybe one day. Nonetheless, let me know if you still would like this, and if you can't find it via Google let me know and I'll do my best to make it available.
