This is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.Thanks, that's great!!<br><br>Hooe those sessions will be here soon. Still a lot of music music. Would have liked it better if those remixes, were actually score tracks
Mera Montage is the big rock vocal cue used during the Sicily Battle & the Wine scene.<br><br>Home Invasion the opening soldiers barging in to capture Atlanna, as well as a part of the Black Manta / Orm negotiation scene.<br><br>Saving Pops is... the saving pops scene...<br><br>Ahab Wave is the tsunami scene + and when Aquaman arrives to the sub to fight Manta's gang.<br><br>Ask the Sea is when Aquaman refuses to help Manta's dad.<br><br>Olbigation is the soft piece in the plane when Aquaman & Mera talk.<br><br>Dunes is the comedic Dunes slide scene...I just want the Sicily Battle music!Having seen it I can say visually it is incredible, definitely a work of art on that level. What sets it back (for me personally) is the lack of a strong emotional core. The choice to make the animals realistic looks great, but doesnít have the same range that the hand drawn version had in terms of giving the animals the facial characteristics like the original. Soulless might be kind of harsh, but I didnít feel anything throughout. Also doing a shot-for-shot remake probably wasnít the best approach. <br><br>Musically though; this definitely was a great reminder as to why the original score is still a classic. Like everyone has said, itís a perfect companion piece that actually fixes some minor flaws and fleshes out some ideas much better. Some important cues missing though.ďAsk The SeaĒ <br>Oh please be the cue I want...Deluxe edition releases tomorrow<br>http :// filmmusicreporter .com /2019/07/18/aquaman-deluxe-edition-soundtrack-to-be-released /
Didn't Menken do much the same with Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast? I think the only ones who have been the most original with the scores to these remakes have been Danny Elfman and John Debney.<br><br>My personal view is this serves as a great compliment to the 1994 soundtrack, not an outright replacement. If you combined the two you'd get quite the meaty soundtrack.<br><br>As for the film itself, I highly doubt it will be as 'great' as the original, but that's not to say that it deserves the slating critics have given it either. I personally can't say - I haven't seen it yet.Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.I have to agree. It's a stellar score and I love it, but it was written 25 years ago, nevertheless.<br>Still, credit where credit's due, as you mentioned, the new 'Stampede' is a beast of a track, really added to the original, as well as the 'Battle' cue, awesome stuff for sure. <br>Haven't seen the movie yet, but I really hope it measures up, at least in the same way the score does.Most of it sounds like a high quality youtube remix to me, honestly. it's serviceable but unnecessary.Probably Zimmer, in 1994. It's part of the demoes he included on the Legacy set so I'd say it's a safe bet.
panpipes or flute doesnt matter, i just wondering who composed this :Dhaha thatís true :DWasn't expecting any of that so I'm not disappointed :D <br><br>So apparently this is out as well as The Golden Circle.. listening now. Canít believe I missed this.And that's why it bugs me so much lol. They're literally the biggest studio out there, so it would've been nice to see them go to the max with this release. Especially since it's one of their most popular IPs if not their most popular IP.

me: "I want to hear this "real theme" that HZ and JNH had composed for this film and it either didn't make it on the album or wasn't used at all."

Me, the theme you're looking for, i.e. the Batman heroic theme is heard in Track 8: "Like a Dog Chasing Cars", in Track 12: "Introduce a Little Anarchy" and Track 14: "A Dark Knight". Listen to those three tracks one after another and you'll notice it. BTW, the theme is outstanding!

A Sentient Being, thanks for the info. After listening to those tracks a couple of times, the theme really stood out. The more I listen to it, the more this album is becoming my favorite HZ album, even though he didn't compose all of the pieces solely.

I love what i've heard of the extracts here but, the i'm not a hero track that i've listened to a few times elsewhere in links from this site. is not done justice here. I think it's the one track i really want to hear more of. I can see where zimmer has held back on going all out on a few of tracks, almost like someone has told him, now Mr ZImmer i like your work, i like it a lot, but the things is with this Batman movie, i don't wan't it going all Armageddon on me!! If you know what i mean!! We want people leaving the theatre thinking Batman kicks ass! not Batman saves the day again, isn't he great!!

zimmer's work is BORING !

he does the same crap for every score !

And now he needs, even more then ever, HUGE teams of collaborators, to do multi-million crap !

The score is rather masterfull, the score captures that inner psycological fued that is seething beneath Bruce Wayne and the city of Gotham. As far as being a bombastic piece that is just fun to listen to it just won't be most people's cup of tea. For those seeking an emotional exploration of your deeper and much darker inner self then this score sounds about right. The score may not stand out for now, but once the movie has been seen I think people will associate the images with the music and thus improve the candor of the "batman" music schema. As the films evolve and the characters in them then the music will follow (as long as it's the same two composers) and enhance the experience. It does appear that Hans Zimmer has been using the same musical elements in his more recent scores, but that just means that soon these ideas will be mastered, whereas if he kept trying to "reinvent" either the musical genre or his own compositional style then we would continually be intrigued but unfulfilled. It still sounds like people are whining because there is no "batman theme" like elfmans...I like this better, my brain gets to do more of it's own work.

Well, being a Batman fan since childhood, I feel it fits the tone of the film perfectly and though it may not be as good a listening experience as, say, Elfman's Batman scores (what can you expect if Nolan doesn't WANT it to have a big theme?) but I still get goosebumps listening to parts of it. "Why So Serious", in my very humble opinion, fits the Joker's character perfectly! And "Like a Dog Chasing Cars" is probably one of the best action tracks of the year. The Harvey Dent track is also gorgeous.

Okay, lets get this straight. Zimmer's work is by no means boring. He is my favorite composer of all time and I am a huge collector of anything he has a part of. And I don't want an Elfman score for these Batman films. Zimmer/Howard's work fits perfectly in these films and enhances the experience when watching. I guess I'm just greedy, but I want to hear this "real theme" that HZ and JNH had composed for this film and it either didn't make it on the album or wasn't used at all. This is a fantastic score, much better than the first. Like A Dog Chasing Cars is one of the best action pieces ever written. Zimmer's work is amazing and James Newton Howard is fastly becoming one of my favorite composers. Okay, maybe that clears things up.

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-15 00:00:00
I'm probably the last person on this board to listen to this one. To me, The Dark Knight is an example of a good score written for the film and not for album. It functions well in its purpose as it emphasizes the film's dark tones but standing alone, it does not make for a memorable listening experience. At least not for me.

THE DARK KNIGHT OST is great. Love all the themes, all the suites, and all the sweeping scores. A true treasure for any fan of orchestrated original soundtrack music.

Let me say this. It met my expectations, but did not surpass them. If Christopher Nolan desides to do a third Batman film and he signs both Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard for the score, lets hope they finally use the "theme" that was almost used on this film. Great album, still waiting for that 10/10 album.

RemoteDead6 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-15 00:00:00
I hav to agree with Me and Sylvos. Im sure the score is gonna sound great in the film, especially in IMAX, but it isnt enough to stand on its own. And we were promised this full, magnificent theme and all we got are the same two notes as the last album (which Jablonsky used in the Island) the Harvey Dent theme is well done, props to JNH, but the album is already sittin on my shelf... 3 out of 5!

Why So Serious? sounds like "Heat" from Elliot Goldenthal.

The rest of the score is just average...
