I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). Itís fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but donít criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldnít afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said no
I Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from WallfischOne-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!<br><br>They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.So you can't wait to hear the score but you already say it's a great score ?<br><br><br>#inceptionAnother great score from Benjamin Wallfisch can't wait to hear the score & see the movie <br><br>Music By Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Additional Music By John Paesano & Adam Hochstatter<br>Orchestra Conducted By Tim Williams<br>Orchestrations By Peter Bateman & David J. KrystalWhy is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.<br><br>And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring. <br>And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...
Re-listening the score again...Ö.Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...Ö..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.Its just three short bursts of sound, really.Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheet
It should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.<br><br>Ossuary<br>Return to Sappers<br>Must Protect the Child<br>Bomb<br>Like a Real Girl<br>Luv in Apartment<br>Mesa Hijack<br><br>I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.I keep listening to "The Syndicat", which is what I assume to be the theme for The Syndicate. Honestly one of the better villain themes i've heard in a whileFlight has a new Andrew Kawczynski credit...We're getting there!Yeah, you're probably right. <br><br>I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff. <br><br>Either way, I love that track.Yeah<br><br>BTW, John Paesano is credited as additional music

The Lion King is Zimmers best.

I love Zimmers work. I listen to the Pirates of the Caribbean scores religiously.

What is the difference between the limited edition and special edition soundtrack for the film, and will we see a complete score in the future?

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-21 00:00:00
You know, these clips act as spoilers for me. So I guess I'll abstain till I get the actual soundtrack in my hands and then spend a day relishing it! :D

I believe the Joker's one-note motif is that rising note heard in "Why So Serious"?

This is a very promising score. Thanks for that url. The samples on exlibris.ch are amazing! The most promising cues are Agent Of Chaos, Aggressive Expansion, and I Am The Batman. Agent Of Chaos uses the cue at the end of the End Credits Suite from the first Batman movie. Go to about 3 and 15 seconds left in the piece and that is the cue I'm talking about. Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard are going to deliver on this one. And the theme, or rather, the one note motif for The Joker will send chills up your spine! Amazing music; I can't wait for this one!

Why So Serious (probably the one note motif) sounds a lot like the Hannibal score. Wich is a good thing. The 15th of July is still so far away!

One note motif???

WTF is one note motif?

The smallest musical motif consists of two notes!

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-20 00:00:00
Thanks for the link!

Totally amazing! Zimmer and Newton-Howard are using the old themes, and yet The Dark Knight will be loaded with bunch of new ones!

Outstanding!

The one note motif is heard in the first track, which i think is also the bank heist scene...not sure though. I dont know if the one note thing is a perfect motif for him, but i guess depending on how Zimmer layers it it'll take on a life of its own...

i heard the samples though and DID hear alot of rehash themes from the previous soundtrack...Supposedly they wrote over 2 hours of music....Last thing I wanna hear is the same cues from the previous soundtrack on here...

Hybrid, you're not objective! :D (for thunderbirds)
I like the work who has been done on Batman Begins but this isn't the best that a duo like Zimmer and Newton Howard can do!
Listening the samples (and it's an extract maybe not representative of the ensemble), i don't find a real surprise, a big theme (hum.. maybe in the last track??).
For me, it's a copy-paste from the prequel with two three years of maturity of the themes. And it's over! But I hope I miss!

Ok i think everyone needs to just chill out and wait to hear the score for The Dark Knight before making any comments. I'm sure it will be great and i can't wait for it, but i'm not going to critique it on 30second clips.. C'mon guys and girls, your all starting to make this site annoying to visit! Everyone needs to just enjoy with their ears and let go a bit! People here are starting to leave comments as stupid as the ones you see on filmtracks.com. Please people... learn to just enjoy music, love or hate it, but don't spend your spare time talking about the technical points. It takes the fun out of listening to music. Peace to you all! :)

I don't know what a one-motif is because like one of the previous posters said "the smallest musical motif consists of two notes." It will be interesting to see how Mr. Zimmer uses this "one note" in different ways. I can't wait until July 15th.

I cant wait for this. Zimmer and Howard are two of the very best.

This should not serve as an advertising place!

And besides, the site is not special at all!

So, keep out!

Because Zimmer does fantastic Album everytime! ^_^

Hum.. I'm a huge fan of hans and no.. hans doesn't always good scores. Example, Thunderbirds. :)
And more, Batman Begins, even if it's an efficient and a powerful score, the result isn't the best that you can wait of hans zimmer and james newton howard!
I'm decepteid by the approach taken in "Dark Knight". It seems a dark score, very dark, too dark? Batman isn't a hero?? Bad new!

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-18 00:00:00
Thunderbirds isn't a Zimmer score, he just wrote the main themes...


And... I love Thunderbirds... Junior Mission is an amazing track... :D

"The point is to make more money :)"

Won't they make more money if they include only four bonus tracks on each release so finally combining we get a nearly complete score? :D
