So what happened to the credits here? It used to be a mixture of solo Atli cues with Atli/Dave Fleming, and now all three guys are credited for every track even though Tillman is only listed as a musician? Is this like with Armageddon, where the "official" credits aren't as accurate as the older ones were? :pMost of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track. <br><br>The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)Not really any... "Nothing Out There" contains the sad piano theme from Begins and Dark Knight, but otherwise the themes that get reprised are pretty much Hans stuff. <br><br>Speaking of credits, any chance the complete score page could be updated with what's out there and official?Could somebody tell me in what cues JNH's themes appear on album?Thanks MIKE, Any ideas of how can I Google it?
Yeah, that cue was either a last minute rewrite or one of the music editors did it.... As for where you can find it...Google is your friend. But it's not going to be available anywhere officially.I think it will be in between NOT ORDINARY CITIZEN / THE SLOW KNIFE and IMAGINE THE FIRE, Does anybody know where can I find it?<br>I noticed that this score doesn't has the soundtrack of the part where Blake is taking the people to the bridge and he is discusing with the other police officer before he blows the bridgeThat's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it." <br><br>I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?I wanna say I heard the full Cat Suite somewhere... I can't remember if it was legit, but it was 15:39 and it was indeed quite repetitive. It was basically the Selina Kyle Suite from the Z+ app, along with demos of several of the Catwoman-related cues in the final score. If you've listened through the score, you've basically heard the unreleased stuff.
@Mike<br>Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.<br><br>I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.<br><br>Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.Anyone here listened "The Predator" FYC score? <br>Any chance to compare tracklist and running time with official release?These versions suites haven't been officially released, but maybe you can find them somewhere around the Internet unofficially.<br><br>As for the Cat Suite, the most important parts of it can be found in "Selina Kyle" (it's a shortened version of it actually) and "Mind if I cut in?" from the OST. I remember that Hybrid once said that the 15mins Cat Suite was too repetitive, that's why a 5min only version was released, so maybe you are just fine with those two.<br>Where can I listen to the Cat Suite? Or is it literally: Selina Kyle Theme? <br>The Mole P1 (0-1:57)<br>Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)<br>The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)<br>Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier<br>Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)<br>The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)<br>We Need Our Army Back (again) <br>Supermarine P2 (*5:33)<br>Impulse<br>The Tide<br>Home <br>The Oil <br>Variation 15<br>End Credits <br><br>As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.<br>The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different. <br><br>So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be: <br>The Mole <br>Regimental Brothers <br>We Need Our Army Back<br>Shivering Soldier <br>Supermarine <br>Impluse <br>The Tide <br>Home <br>The Oil<br>Variation 15<br>End credits<br><br>As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.
I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train. <br><br>I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product? <br><br>While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.Does anyone know where you can get a digital version of the Japanese versions 2 bonus tracks?Comparing it to YFM’s sfx edit this is what I’ve got;<br><br>“The Mole” seems to be an alternate of the opening sequence. The first minute or so is used, while the rest isn’t. “We Need Our Army Back/Regimental Brothers” are both made up of several cues from different points in the film. <br>“Home” is completely different in the film, which makes me think it may have been recorded specifically for the album. Similar situation with “Oil”. <br>“Supermarine” is definitely a suite. The rest is chronological.<br><br>Interesting thing to note, it seems like a lot of the tempo changes/ticking effects/bass overlays were removed from the album release, making almost every track sound different from the actual film versions. The music in context has a constant pulse going, especially in the way cues segue into each other and change tempo.It's not really possible to chronologically order the album because the album doesn't use the same tracks as the movie. Plus, the album is more or less chronological anyway, given the areas where they are the same.<br>With the complete cue sheet out now. Does anyone know what the chronological order of the album would be?

That 'expanded soundtrack' is fake.
Just cut, copy and paste work from the original score

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

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."

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.

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 !!!

A very strong and sink score, but I like it ! The strings are superbly used and Hans Zimmer offers a dynamic music, as usual.

"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.

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.

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.

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.
