I agree completely.<br><br>The movie was awesome, the score works perfectly, and the only thing I didn't like was the use of songs. Too much of them. Songs rarely work during intense action scenes. They distract.<br><br>But every time the score started, I liked it. Bay may be known as the big action guy, but when it comes to scoring the more intimate/emotional moments, he and the composer (no matter who he is) always do a good job.Greenaway for President! :))I agree with Knight.<br><br>It seems some peeps were expecting power anthems left and right. Yes, this is a big movie, but not a "Transformers-big" movie. I didn't like the use of source music (I hate songs in action movies) but when Balfe's work popped up I noticed it right away.<br><br>The more emotional cues were definitely the most memorable.What a fantastic soundtrack.<br>It’s totally crazy and works brilliantly in the film.<br>The bit emotional sections are very classic Bay but Balfe’s electronic weirdness is very unique.<br>It’s nothing like Balfe’s Dark Materials BUT why I’m earth should it be !<br>10/10Gavin should be listed as conductor
Because Ice Age was composed by David Newman and Collision Course was composed by John DebneyWhen i heard just the sound clips, i thought wtf. Sounds like the worst score, a michael bay movie ever had. Then i listened to the whole album and i have to say, there are some pretty cool tracks. I really like the electronic rhythmic stuff. Welcome to florence is awesome. The emotional moments are nice, but standard balfe stuff. In the movie, the music works really good. I think this music style is the only style, that works in THIS movie. And as hybrid says a mish mash of score and songs. The movie itself is.....strange. but at least the action rocks as hell.If "The Meltdown," "Dawn of The Dinosaurs" and "Continental Drift" are added, then how come "Ice Age" and "Collision Course" aren't?I haven't heard the album yet but there isn't much score in the film. It's like Bad Boys II meets Domino in terms of editing, songs everywhere (19 sourced songs used), short cues... Hell there's even a 13 Hours cue tracked in the film ("Getting Aboard The Plane")."Second time"... lol
Another awsome score by lorne balfe. I really like the film 6 underground directed by michael bay, is very awsome and intense and i begin to hear the score composed by lorne balfe, and its phenomenal and his second time working with michael bay since 13 hours, which i like lorne balfe's score too. Balfe's work is really inspiring in his film score.I don't expect Lorne to make a masterpiece with each movie, but it is true that most of her films are action candies, and I can't understand how she can deliver 6 underground and then make His dark materials.  It seems that within Lorne there are a thousand different composers.  And I don't know what to expect from Lorne again.Can't help noticing not one, but two Zimmer titles in here.... Tracks 14 and 16. lol.What is most disappointing is that this is a Michael Bay movie with a score being so bad. Historically his movies have fantastic scores by either Hans, Steve Jablonsky, and even Lorne Balfe. But this is hands down the worst Michael Bay score I’ve ever heard. <br><br>It’s functional, yes, but nothing compared to 13 Hours, any of the Transformers movies, The Rock, Pearl Harbor, etc. I definitely had high hopes for another good “power anthem” score... and the only cues that are any good are just Time ripoffs.<br><br>Highly disappointing.Again, if we have to expect every piece of work of one composer is have to be as good like his others pieces of work, that's pretty underwhelming and impossible.<br><br>Yeah, 6 Underground is not a good score by any means (neither Gemini Man, but is far more listenable), but works perfectly in the hiperbolic movie.
I expected a lot from this score, and the truth is that it left me cold.  Honestly, I think it is Bay's fault, Balfe has shown that he is capable of doing everything, but here it gives the feeling of being covered.  Again, Balfe must focus on fewer projects and the projects he accepts are of quality.There are speculations about the track "Til Death Do Us Part "as being composed by Brandon Campbell. Can anyone confirm whether it was Djawadi or Campbell who composed it?Come to Portugal again.> which ones are listenable<br>all of the ones I listed are the melodic/orchestral moments in the score not counting Memories and Beautiful Sunday.<br>Listen to Haunt the Living, Thrones, A Million Battles or One, But Not Done and tell me that the score is a travesty.Knight - okay, let us know which ones of these tracks are even listenable? Hyperbolic nonsense defines this score, but I do not blame Balfe - this would have been what Bay wanted. Such a shame to see his artistic credibility reduced to this after the stellar work on His Dark Materials and acceptable material on Gemini Man,.

We don't know about you guys, but whenever we hear these songs, we literally get chills! Words cannot describe... we're listening to the soundtrack right now, and we're amazed at the awesomeness.

Zimmer/Howard/Nolan, kudos for all your hard work. You guys are amazing.

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"?

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.

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.
