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.

do you have an idea of the good track order
(timmings, name of the tracks to cut,...)

the worke made on this expanded edition is technically very bad

davidson reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-07 00:00:00
That 'expanded soundtrack' is fake.
Just cut, copy and paste work from the original score

Besides, it's too early for an expanded release.

Nothing new in this score : (

My apologies, after seeing the film again, I believe "Blood on My Hands" may play during Harvey's introduction, and the first part of "Harvey Two-Face" plays during Dent's speech. I think Peter is right. Sorry again.

For Hans Zimmer, the dark knight represents a failure to perform up to expectations. This score lacks the personal voice that ultimately ties it to its movie - there are not many characteristics that say “the dark knight” - I just feel “dark action film”. His music would have benefited from a more thematic approach.

lank14 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-04 00:00:00
Bzzz, wrong answer! "Blood on My Hands" does not play when Harvey meets Gordon. That part is from "Harvey Two-Face."

If you can't find how dramatic & masterpiece is this score then you don't know anything about music

Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer. I really loved the OST of the gladiator and king Arthur those were really jewels. The Dark Knight i didn't hear the complete OST but the part that you can download. It was much the same sound, only number 8 sounded exception good.

sorry Hans, but I hoop that i am wrong and the whole cd sounds as number 8.

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-04 00:00:00
Yea, I'm putting Harvey Two-Face in as Track 3. It fits well after I'm not a hero... and flows well into Aggressive Expansion for track 4.

Bullo reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-03 00:00:00
A very strong and sink score, but I like it ! The strings are superbly used and Hans Zimmer offers a dynamic music, as usual.

Batman begins was boring,
hoping that the dark knight was going to be less boring, I took a chance and saw it today and it's even more boring !
I almost fell asleep in the theater for god sake !
Extremely disappointing !!!

What is the song that plays at the very end of the movie just as the credits are about to start?

peter reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-02 00:00:00
blood on my hands actually plays when Gordon meets dent and continues in the following scene at the Wayne building.

lank14 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-01 00:00:00
"Harvey Two-Face" is basically a suite, and the first part is really the only piece in the film. Most of that part plays during Harvey's introduction in the courtroom with Maroney.

It 's done. I have just received the cd I bought with Amazon. It sounds great. Purshase original versions is really the most honest way to appreciate the whole work of composers because electronic sounds are excellent.

Thanks Sentient Being, you helped get my tracks in order... but I think a few are misplaced. I could be completely wrong too, but here's how I have my tracks listed:
1 - Why So Serious - Opening
2 - I'm Not a Hero - Hong Kong
3 - Aggressive Expansion - Joker attacks
4 - Always a Catch - ?
5 - Blood on My Hands - Bruce and Rachel theme
6 - I Am The Batman - Dent confesses
7 - Agent of Chaos - Rachel/Dent - Rescue attempt
8 - Harvey Two-Face - Aftermath of explosions, visits of Dent at hospital, Bruce mourns, Coin delivered.
9 - And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad - Bruce saves Reese and Hospital Evacuation
10 - Like a Dog Chasing Cars - Batman/Hostages/Swat
11 - Introduce a Little Anarchy - 2nd part of Hostage rescue and reaching the Joker
12 - A little push - Final talk of Joker w/ Batman
13 - Watch World Burn - 2Face confronts Gordon/family and Batman
14- A Dark Knight - montage and ending.

A Little Push contains the theme of fear or intimidation, used in BB when Batman faces the gang for the first time and when he faces Scarecrow for the second time.

By the way, Michael, good work, but I remember the middle part (the bombastic one) in Harvey Two-Face having taken place during the Maroni and the Russians arrest, although it was cut in the movie. However, it is possible some portions of this track appear during the scenes of Harvey in hospital.

A Sentient Being had the tracks right. I saw the film for a second time and was able to fill in the missing tracks.

"I Am the Batman" plays when Alfred is explaining to Bruce that some men "just want to watch the world burn."

The first part of "Always a Catch" plays right after The Joker gets out of the turned semi as Batman races towards him.

"Bllood on My Hands" plays when Dent is giving his speech about the dawn coming, right before he confesses.

Brandon reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-31 00:00:00
I am trying to find the name of the music that plays during the Batman and Joker interrogation scene. It also plays when Joker is talking two face in to joining the dark side. I think it also plays at the end, when the joker reveals that Harvey was his "Ace in the Hole" It is a very soft bell or xylophone sounding bit. It is very quiet, but sounds awesome. Can anyone help me out?

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-31 00:00:00
Thanks for the follow ups! I will continue to play around a bit more.... especially reording the ALways A catch to play farther up.

lank14 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-31 00:00:00
Brandon, I believe the piece you're look for is played in the first track "Why So Serious?" It plays towards the end of the track and is very low.

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-31 00:00:00
Ok So Blood on My Hands would be labelled - as Dent giving speech, saying goodbye To Rachel before getting into the prisoner transport.
