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.

I am pretty disappointed that this score is not getting the attention that it deserves. And surely Zimmer and Howard are not getting the credit the should be merited after such an exhilarating score. The music could stand alone, but also made the The Dark Knight the movie it is. I'm glad to see that Heath is getting his due, but I really wish that Christopher Nolan, Hans Zimmer, and James Newton Howard would get theirs. It's a shame that this score will not be able to win the Oscar that it most assuredly deserves. Kudos to you Zimmer and Howard, for a marvelous piece of composition that I will listen to without end...or maybe until the 3rd installment by Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale as The Dark Knight.

Does anyone know where to find the cue used in the third Dark Knight trailer that starts when harvey says, "rachel's told me everything about you" and keeps going through when Maggie says, "don't make me your only hope for a normal life"?

Does anyone has the feeling that "like a dog chasing cars" is too short. the cue is so powerful I wish it would be longer and more developed ?

Hans, I it was awesome to hear about how you developed the Jokers theme. About your method composing, and how you wanted to integrate music from Batman Begins into the Dark Knight at the MPSE Sound Show.

Take care

This is some of the most amazing music ever! I love it and I hope that Zimmer keeps on writing amazing music. I hope that I can find a score for the French Horn somewhere.

@KaijusRoyaume

No idea.

Most 2 cd limited editions have price ~29$.

60$ is too much even for complete score.

Well, we have just wait for any other info

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-22 00:00:00
For this price a complete score wouldn't be enough. It's just 2 single discs for chrissakes!
Why is the price so high? LOTR Complete scores cost this much, but they included muich much more music. If they'd release 4CDs with the full score to BB and TDK, then I'd be happy with the price tag.

Do you think it's a possible complete score release ?

I simply love the music from The Dark Knight. This soundtrack does such a great job enhancing the scenes in the movie and takes a great movie and turns it into an incredible movie! Mr. Zimmer is an incredibly talented man and with each soundtrack I listen to, his music gets better! Thank you so much for not throwing out this music after the unfortunate death of Heath Ledger! It would have been a shame to have lost all of this music. I think that your music is so beautiful. I listen to your music EVERY DAY. I can't seem to listen to anything else anymore.

Yes.. interesting - FAG is similar to Harvey`s theme.. somehow (FAG: 1:00 - 1:44).

Is it just me or does the opening of "Harvey two-face" sound similar to track #13 F.A.G, from the team america score? Its about 20 to 30 seconds into it but it sounds really similar.
