Wow!!! Howard Shore writing music for VG that's new for me. Zimmer, Shore and Balfe together in the same album maybe is 1 in 1000.I finally got this after years of searching. It's definitely the best representation of the score I believe. I have some questions about a few tracks. "Waiting for Judgement" and "You Simply Won't Die". I'm assuming these are parts that were replaced in the film?Like I said, this is all just off the top of my head. The titles I either made up, guessed, or pulled from the cue names. And of course there is probably still some missing...Can’t seem to find it, I had it stored on an old computer which may not have backed up. Off the top of my head though (perhaps Hybrid can clarify the actual names, I’m just guessing here):<br><br>Curse of The Black Pearl:<br>Main Pirates Tune<br>Will and Elizabeth<br>Turner Theme<br>Jack Cello Theme<br>Jack Motif<br>Jack Hero Tune<br>Curse Theme<br>Pirates March<br>Skeleton Dance<br>Barbossa Motif<br>Barbossa Theme 2 (?)<br>Action Motif<br>Tortuga Stinger<br><br>Dead Man’s Chest:<br>New Jack Theme<br>New Jack Action Theme<br>Beckett Motif<br>Davy Jones Theme<br>Kraken Theme<br>Cannibal Island Theme<br>Tia Dalma Theme<br><br>At World’s End:<br>Pirate Lord of Singapore<br>Beckett Theme<br>Beckett Theme 2 (Betrayal Tune)<br>World’s End Theme<br>New Love Theme<br>Hoist The Colors Tune<br>Duduk Tune <br><br>On Stranger Tides:<br>Mermaids/Fountain Theme<br>Blackbeard Theme<br>Angelica Theme<br>Spanish Tunempolonest123, is there a way I could read your breakdown? I would be really interested on taking a look at it<br><br>And yeah, I know there are a lot of themes and their associations are really confusing specially during the first movie, I guess because of the rush job. It's funny how as the saga progressed theme associations became clearer, at least most of the times.
oh wow finally... and I like how they finally gave Lorne creditFinally this gets some sort of release outside of China !Well it's complicated cause on the first film it was done such in a hurry that some themes became more "situation themes" than "character themes". But yeah, there's a loooooooooooot !I did a breakdown for the hell of it a while back, the sheer amount of themes/motifs is astounding, not quite as many as Lord of the Rings or Star Wars but very close!<br><br>It’s tricky to really place some of the theme meanings in as much as they were repurposed for the other films through temp tracking.I was recently revisiting all of this scores and I was wondering...<br><br>Could anyone help me identify all of the themes from the whole saga and tell mewhat they represent?<br><br>I already got a lot of them like the Kraken, Davy Jones, Mermaids, the main theme, etc. But others are still a bit confusing on what they represent, like for example the theme Neely and Badelt created in the first movie that were used in the following movies.<br><br>Thanks in advance!
why no cd release?Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !
Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.

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"?

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.
