Go watch the film and you'll understand why there's no Rachel's themei believe that glimpses of the original would have solved the problem ;)Not actually though...probably a bit more Jackman than there actually is, eh? ;)@James<br><br>I have heard the original Vangelis theme but I was referring to a new theme for this new movie.Okay. I'm on the Lorne Balfe bandwagon now. I don't care if this movie is trash, this is a great listening experience, which is sometimes difficult to find in a score these days.
Composer credits !@spectre<br><br>She has a theme! Search for "Rachael's Song"!I agree. It is the most beautiful theme of the previous film and one of the biggest in Vangelis' career.I feel like there should have been a proper theme for Rachael. She was a really important character in both movies and it would have been nice to hear a sad melancholic melody for in her in some kind of Flashback or dream sequence for Deckard.$$$$$$ the soundtrack is FANTASTIC
Same here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.Just listen to all of it !!!! It’s a great classic soundtrack with cool electronics and great tunes- balfe is the topListen all the score and make the list yourself with the best moments for you, guy! Lolcan anybody recommend the absolute best themes on this score to me please!No he is not. It's just the musical palette created for all the futuristic scifi films that are inspired by what Vangelis did in 1982.
Balfe is doing a Reddit interview in 2 hours time . Hopefully we can get to the bottom of Why he replaced Pinar and Clint Mansell on Ghost in The ShellI totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album. <br>Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting. <br><br>I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.<br><br>Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.also seems very like ghost in the shell. Did Balfe also help out on this score ?I can hear it<br>'Her Eyes were Green' gave me a heavy Arrival-vibe for example<br>Am I the Only one that feels Johánn Johánnsson touch everywere along this score?<br>Truly is the Vangelis reminiscense in each song, but the style is more near to Johánnsson than Wallfisch and of course Zimmer.<br>Could be Denis Villeneuve's suggestion, or maybe Benjamin has study Villeneuve last works, but is unquestionable that 2049 score sounds very Johánnsson.<br><br>Many people these days talking bad about 2049 score (No melodies, No Vangelis, All ambiance...), but the reality is that this work has perfect match with the rest of the film.<br><br>2049 is different to the original Blade Runner. Yes it has the same world and feeling, but is another director's vision, and the music follows (perfectly) the same way.

Don't have any Dark Knight scores, but in general I think the retagging problem happens when "Read only" is checked in the audio file?

Gus reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-03 00:00:00
I'm not sure. That's what I thought too. VLC is the only program that can play the tracks though. I can't even drag them into itunes. :(

@Dakota

I also have this 46 track score. Thanks a lot by the way, whoever made this.

however a couple of the tracks I have are corrupted files that I can't tag. Are you having this issue too?

I know there are some of my versions out there too (one or two). But I'm always looking for more.

If you made the 46-track version that I listed below, then thank you very very much. I simply can't believe it exists, weather it's real or fake. I love it either way.

@ Dakota, yeah, I presumed that you weren't allowed to tell me the exact source, I just wondered if it makes sense to search for it or not. Unfortunately I haven't found it but thank you for your kind answer.

@ Per, I bought the official releases, and you might be right that they contain all the cues but when I'm watching the movie I just feel there's a bit more in it. But you are right, I couldn't name a piece. Probably it's just the play of senses, that the visual experience is added to the auditory and it sounds like a more enjoyable cue...

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-02 00:00:00
I know a good and easy way to get it, and it's legal too... just buy the official release(s) !

Unless someone can prove me wrong, this is just another of those fake fan made versions made from the official 2CD release... Just edits and even repeated stuff from the official CDs. Some like to have it like this, edited to make it as close as possible to how it is in the film, and that is perfectly alright. But it's still just a edit, not a real version...

Maybe there's a slight chance some of the cues in it are in fact real, but most likely if there's some stuff not on the official release in there, it's most likely just taken from some other sources, such as the DVD, or composer site clips or whatever, like usually with these kind of things.

But if someone can name me a real unreleased cue in it, or at least a cue they think are real, I would appreciate it.

@ r&w, not it's not, I found it online. I can't remember where, and even if I did, I'm not allowed to say. I would love to share it with you, believe me but I can't. I found it only a few months ago, so just google it. I'm sure you'll find it somewhere. There is also another version out there which has fewer tracks, but they are longer. It's about the same length, but I prefer this one, it's more exact. It's like there's a track for every scene. It's fantastic. It's against regulations on this site to give away how to get these without buying them, and the site regulators don't like it. I'm actually very surprised one of them didn't respond to you saying "ebay", like they usually do. I really hope you find it, it is truely amazing.

There are many versions of the "Complete" Score out there. The one I have is one disc, comprised of 46 tracks, 423.1 Megabytes, and 2 hours, 55 minutes, and 41 seconds total. And it's completely SFX free. It's a Godsend. Here's the tracklist:

1.) Bank Robbery (Prologue) (6:26)
2.) Because He's Busy (1:41)
3.) Buyer Beware (2:54)
4.) No Limtis (2:55)
5.) White Knight (2:17)
6.) Kill The Batman (3:04)
7.) Why So Serious? (3:00)
8.) Welcome To Honk Kong (1:55)
9.) Break In (3:51)
10.) Agressive Expansion (4:59)
11.) Party Crashers (2:52)
12.) Watch The World Burn (2:00)
13.) Blackmail (2:51)
14.) Dishonor Guard (2:51)
15.) Blood On My Hands (4:51)
16.) The Right Choice (3:27)
17.) Hit Me! (3:10)
18.) Interrogation (2:34)
19.) Two-Way Race (6:56)
20.) Harvey Two-Face (1:41)
21.) Better Class oOf Criminal (2:37)
22.) Introduce A Little Anarchy (5:58)

24.) The Ferries (4:27)

32.) Always A Catch (Alternate) (0:54)
33.) Heroic Theme (Alternate) (3:20)
34.) Epic Theme (Alternate) (0:22)
35.) Joker Suite (Alternate) (9:14)
36.) Harvey Dent Suite (Alternate) (6:17)

39.) Chaos Suite (Alternate) (3:22)
40.) Harvey's Theme (Alternate) (1:18)
41.) Why So Serious? (The Crystal Method Remix) (5:30)
42.) Poor Choice Of Words (Paul Van Dyk Remix) (6:15)
43.) Gunpowder & Gasoline (Mel Wesson Remix) (4:34)
44.) Rory's First Kiss (Ryeland Allison Remix) (6:04)
45.) The Dark Knight Trailer (Performed by Groove Addicts) (1:30)
46.) Interrogation (Alternate) [Extended] (3:06)

Tracks 41-46 are included on the 2-Disc Special Edition. I know that the entire score is labelad as "Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard", but I was wondering if anyone knows which tracks are individually composed by them. I saw a video that has Hans performing the more tense, action pieces while James does the dramatic piano. It's obvious to tell when you are listening to them individually, but I wanted to know for sure. It's a shame this beautiful score could not even get nominated for an Academy Award due to the stupid Academy regulations of it being performed by both of them, and not one (which is why Batman Begins could not get anything either). It truly is an amazing piece of work, unlike ANYTHING I have ever heard. There is a reason why Hans Zimmer is my favorite film composer of all time. I Love You Hans.

Just wanted to say a big thank you and congratulations... Oh, please, excuse my english, I'm french...
I'm a big, big fan of Batman. And your music is right, is so good, with the soul of Gotham City, and the soul of Batman.
Nolan's film is wonderful because of himself, the actors, all the men who have worked for it, but really because of your music too.
Each time, when I'm watching this film, I can't do anything else, I stay here and I'm feeling all emotions that the characters are feeling. And after watching it, I need silence. I just feel like listening to your soundtrack, or nothing else.
Thank you for all these emotions, for the pleasure you give us to be send in the universe of Gotham.
Congratulations.
And really, really sorry for my bad english...
Bye
Emilie

How could a human create something like this, track 14 what an unbelievable track specially from 4:23 to 7:06, if all the composers in the whole world united to create something as incredible as this, they wouldn't create something with that beauty. Love you Hans/James Love you Love you Love you :)
