I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). Itís fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but donít criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldnít afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said no
I Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from WallfischOne-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!<br><br>They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.So you can't wait to hear the score but you already say it's a great score ?<br><br><br>#inceptionAnother great score from Benjamin Wallfisch can't wait to hear the score & see the movie <br><br>Music By Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Additional Music By John Paesano & Adam Hochstatter<br>Orchestra Conducted By Tim Williams<br>Orchestrations By Peter Bateman & David J. KrystalWhy is people saying that Balfe kept some original music from Kraemer? I have listened to the whole score and I didn't found any quotes. Maybe in The Syndicate there is some kind of reference to Kraemer's theme but I don't really know.<br><br>And I have to say that I was expecting Balfe to shine on this one, but I ended up disappointed. There are some great action cues, and I like some things he does with the main theme like the use of choir, but the score as a whole feels like a reuse of many things I have already heard and ends up feeling repetitive and a bit boring. <br>And note that this is my opinion so don't jump into my neck saying this is the best score in the saga, because I think Rogue Nation is a really big step above this. I hope that at least it works in the context of the movie, which I suppose it does really well...
Re-listening the score again...Ö.Have to say, Lisbeth Scott's beautiful vocals are definitely one of the highlights. She's amazing. On par with Lisa Gerrard.<br><br>Speaking of, what the hell happened to MV/RC guys incorporating female vocalists in their scores? I've always loved that approach. But it seems that it kinda went away......replaced by more and more sound design! So except for this score (and Steve's Your Highness) is there a recent big MV/RC score that actually features female vocals? Maybe I'm missing some...Ö..I was wondering that is there a Hans Zimmer library you need to license from Remote Control.<br><br>I kinda saw a composer's Cubase setup and he labeled one of his folders, HZ STR, HZ BRS, and HZ Choir.<br><br>Does Zimmer have a brass and choir sample library you need to have a license for?Easy now Mr. Anonymous, no need to be so superior. <br>I looked up that tracklist, and couldn't find 'Tai Lung Escapes' specifficaly listed, hence asking. Closest there is 'Shogun Mongol Prison', but it's too short to be the whole scene.   <br><br>But I'll try to get a hold of that complete version somehow, looks super interesting.Its just three short bursts of sound, really.Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention there's also a short track that plays when K walks through Las Vegas past the statues and beehives, but is not listed on the cuesheet
It should be noted that I think a few tracks like 'new model' are put together with the track that came before it on the CD.<br><br>Ossuary<br>Return to Sappers<br>Must Protect the Child<br>Bomb<br>Like a Real Girl<br>Luv in Apartment<br>Mesa Hijack<br><br>I think are the only real missing tracks, and some of them are pretty short anyway.I keep listening to "The Syndicat", which is what I assume to be the theme for The Syndicate. Honestly one of the better villain themes i've heard in a whileFlight has a new Andrew Kawczynski credit...We're getting there!Yeah, you're probably right. <br><br>I guess I thought of it as a Powell cue mostly because between the two main composers, it matched more with his style than Hans', but yeah it's probably Jackman's stuff. <br><br>Either way, I love that track.Yeah<br><br>BTW, John Paesano is credited as additional music

It has been more then 10 years since my very 1st Hans Zimmer "The Rock" cd. At present I own more then 50 Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Been a big fan of his, I must say not every of the soundtrack of nice. I can listen to 100 times of The Rock and maybe just once of the other not so nice one. And due to hectic work and other lifestyle, I have neglected the much of Hans Zimmer works since the superb last samurai. I watched the dark knight and was blow away by the music. It sounded zimmerish was what I strongly felt during the credits. Due to Dark Knight I enthusiastically search for Hans Zimmer news and that was what bring me to this website for the very 1st time. True enough it is Hans Zimmer work!! Rush down the next day afterwork to HMV to find it. OUT OF STOCK. Was very glad when found it in borders. The soundtrack is EXCELLENT and definitely belongs to one of Hans Zimmer BEST work. A pity I didnt watch Batman Begins last time, else will have definitely get the CD. Now cant find it in CD stores. I have listen to many soundtracks including Video game music. Hans Zimmer is definitely someone who can tickle your emotions Up and Down and all around with his music.

Someone....please......I can't find the track title for the End Credits.... Can someone help me find the track title?? I know very well it is NOT in track 14-A Dark Knight. Starts like how Batman Begins' End Credits but it's abit different than Batman Begins.

The end credits has the beginning from BB, something like Star Wars always having the same End Credits opening in each episode. The opening of the TDK End credits is the same as in BB End credits, but in TDK it is followed by The Dark Knight cue.

Ladies and Gents,

The Dark Knight is fantasitic.

"Your" sound has come a long way from the days of the original Bad Boys soundtrack with Mr. M Mancini amongst others that I could mention that you have been a part of in the many soundtracks in my collection.

Well done.

I am off to the shops to buy my copy.

Best Regards,

Loved this Soundtrack. the Batman Begins soundtrack is the prelude to this score. But this one pounds you with the chaos and emotion.

From begining to end this soundtrack owns. It's a Dark Knight indeed.

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-28 00:00:00
Joshua, maybe I can help you with my own track list. You can later check it to see if I got it right :

1. Why So Serious? (9:14) - The opening scene (bank robbery), shorter in the movie.

2. I'm Not a Hero (6:34) - The Hong Kong mission, preparing and capturing of Lao.

3. Harvey Two-Face (6:16) - Harvey and Gordon/Fox and Bruce/Gordon captures mob bosses.

4. Aggressive Expansion (4:35) - The very end of the movie/murders of Loeb and the judge Surillo/The Joker crashes the party.

5. Always the Catch (1:39) - The only track I can't place anywhere; it is possible it is not used in the movie (It contains both The Joker's theme and a fragment of Nycteris from Batman Begins).

6. A Little Push (2:42) - Batman interrogates Maroni/Harvey interrogates Thomas Shiff.

7. Blood on My Hands (2:16) - Bruce and Rachel

8. I Am the Batman (1:59) - Harvey publicly "admits" that he is the Batman.

9. Agent of Chaos (6:55) - Batman rushes to save Rachel/Rachel and Harvey talk/The Joker escapes/The explosion (Rachel's death)/Aftermath (Rachel's goodbye letter).

10. And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (2:28) - Bruce drives Lamborghini/The evacuation of hospitals/Bruce saves Coleman Reese.

11. Like a Dog Chasing Cars (5:02) - First I thought this cue was intended to appear during the Batpod chase but was never used; however, this cue was used, but in another moment. When Batman crashes into the Pruit building to save the hostages (clowns). However, only the first half was used, right before the appearance of the Batman heroic theme.

12. Introduce a Little Anarchy (3:42) - This track picks where the last one left off. It goes during the Batman's fight with the terrorists (doctors) and police, while using his sonar. It ends during Batman's fight with the dogs and The Joker.

13. Watch the World Burn (3:47) - Harvey holds Gordon's family as hostages/Tossing the coin/This track is abrubtly ended as the theme from the end of "I'm Not a Hero" enters.

15. A Dark Knight (16:15) - This track is pretty much divided throughout the final scenes of the movie. First, it appears when Batman shows his sonar gimmick to Fox; then, it appears when police search the bridges; then, during the ferries situation; it ultimately makes its appearance at the end of the movie, while Gordon and Batman discuss how to cover Harvey's crimes; when Batman sits on his Batpod in the final scene, the first blast from the beginning of "Aggressive Expansion" pick up; it is then followed by End Credits intro from Batman Begins.

You can see I oredered these track according to their appearances in the movie. I honestly hope this is helpful.

Cheers!

There is a score that is used over and over again in the movie, during the fight scenes with the joker, it's also in the preview. Does anyone know what that song/score is?

Best Batman Movie ever. Best score. The wait was almost unbearable but really worth it - the music so suits the film. Mr Zimmer & Mr Howard are to be congratulated on another masterpiece.
Thank you for making this happen

Heres my track order with where the cues are used in the film. Like i said, i need help with a few of them because i dont have them all.

1.Why So Serious? (9:14)-The opening bank robbery and parts are used pretty much through out when ever the joker is about to appear. (kinda like the jaws theme)

2.I'm Not A Hero (6:34) - The scene with gordon and the batsignal at the beginning and it spills over to when batman goes to hong kong to retrieve Lao from hong kong. Also the last few seconds of this track are used again at the end of the film when batman tackles dent off the ledge.

3.Harvey Two-Face (6:16) - pretty much when ever Dent is on screen ( the first time we meet him in the courtroom, when they arrest the mob, after his accident)

4.Aggressive Expansion (4:35) -the first minute or so is when batman is running away and the police are chasing him at the end of the film. The rest of this track are when the judge and commissoner are getting taken out and the joker attacks waynes party.

5.Always A Catch (1:39) ?????

6.Blood On My Hands (2:16) ????

7.A Little Push (2:42) ?????

8.Like A Dog Chasing Cars (5:02) ??????

9.I Am The Batman (1:59) ?????

10.And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (2:28) ??????

11.Agent Of Chaos (6:55) When dent and rachel are kidnapped and batman and gordon are driving to save them

12.Introduce A Little Anarchy (3:42) The building fight at the end between batman the joker and the cops.

13.Watch The World Burn (3:47) when dent kidnappes gordons family

14.A Dark Knight (16:15) the first few minutes are when batman take responsibility for dents crimes at the end and i think the rest of the track is the end credits but im not sure....

Are the tracks on the album listed in the order they are played in the movie? They're listed in order in my iTunes, but some of them seem a bit out-of-place..

But about the music, everything's fantastic. I especially like "Like a Dog Chasing Cars;" you have both Batman's theme and the Joker's; the layout and dynamics of this score are completely blowing the soundtrack for Batman Begins out of the water. The harmonics are fantastic, as well as everything else about the album. Love it. Absolutely and utterly.

The "music" for the Joker is immense when heard in the movie! Bravo!

This is a good soundtrack. I've listened to it almost every day for the past couple of days and I'm loving every cue in the album. Watch The World Burn is a great piece and reminds me of a darker version Am I Not Merciful? from the Gladiator score. Like A Dog Chasing Cars is a great action cue and A Dark Knight is so epic and so emotional. I am loving this album more and more the more I listen to it!

This score is excellent... among the bests in Motion pictures...just like , superman, star wars, jaws & crouching tiger, hidden dragon. Well done, Hans Zimmerman is a musical Genius, anyway.

I haven't seen a comment by Hans Zimmer on this, but in two places of the score (tracks 2 and 16) there are subtle but all too obvious nods to Elfman's theme! Listen closely "A Dark Knight" between the timings 7:20 and 8:14. Between 8:04 and 8:14 is almost blatant.

Overall a great score overall, and this little touch makes it even more complete. You aknowledged the "jolly happy theme" that came before, Hans! :)
