May Mr. Zimmer and his team be interested on “extracting” music from the human body for medical purposes?<br>You can reach me at:<br>jcp77452 at um.es<br>ThanksNot only is the album fun as a concept album, it's a surprisingly good score to picture. The themes are really clear for each of the characters and the music really fits the action. Even though the action is kind of corny. Real underrated gem. <br><br>I finally watched the film and even though it's a sort of 5 or 6 out of 10 average/okay movie, it reminded me just how much personality gets injected when Hans Zimmer does the score. He really has a strong voice.Yeah this is a pretty fair assessment.<br><br>While I’ve found myself liking it less and less now that we’re hearing things like ME or Alita from Tom there are still some excellent tracks throughout. <br>(The Dark Tower, Collateral Damage, Guardian, It Will Fall, Roland of Eld)<br><br>My biggest gripe is with the purely sound design cues. They honestly go nowhere and end up padding the album out. What this score needed was a solid villain motif and some more orchestral underscore. It’s like one-half of the score is the more traditional side of Holkenborg whereas the rest falls into his early habit of just making noise.I give it a listen after three years, and i still like it.<br><br>If isn't as good as Mortal Engines or Alita, have a interesting aspects to enjoy: his main theme for Roland, some of the action cues are strong, even the dramatic ones (The Creed or Collateral Damage), some of the sound design are interesting.<br><br>Maybe the weakest aspect of the album, is the middle, some tracks are not that interesting to listen.woooooow <3
From the "No Time to Die" podcast description...<br><br>"You can also be the first to hear exclusive score from Hans Zimmer and brand new recordings from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra from Bond 25 brought to you from Decca Records."<br><br>First of six episodes is released on Wednesday 30th September!!that would be great@GR7 that sounds really cool care to share?Hi! What's the story with track "Into Space"? They really copy track "Planet Descent" and name it that "Into Space"?I agree guys. Yhis album and parts of the experiments are vey enjoyable. I tend to listen to OST prriodically, and each year there is one or severall scores that replace what I listen the most, and so on... but Dark phoenix is one I can listen every time. <br>I made personal suites assembling music from the OST and mixing it with expremients, and it results in a 50 min suites album, I really like it.
Same for me. I'm so happy ! :DA Celebration? It's actually on youtube now.Got it. I assumed as much for the first 3. Thanks.hahahaha ... crack, sorry. Well so far there is no news of anything. Only the video that one track and one with Dave, but it's a preview.<br>I'm not sure how to get news on this, I really would like to get it hahaha.Isabel Suite = Isabel the Strong<br>Thadeous Suite = Thadeous<br>The Quest Suite = Let Us Quest!<br><br>End credits is probably ripped from the film.
> Fair enough, but I know for a fact that Steve was inspired by Harry Potter because of the complete score track "Tavern Fighting (Part 1)". The end of that track has a direct reference to The Chamber of Secrets theme from the second film.<br><br>Nice catch. Those are very similar.<br><br>Btw, I have some "expanded" version of the score, which seems to be identical to the complete score on this site, aside from the fact that it's missing the last 4 tracks. Do those have equivalents in the regular release?Yes, I was referring to A Celebration. "It's out there" as in "it can be obtained unofficially". Were you referring to the Sia track? That is on Bleeding Fingers' site.no, but you can find it on the bleeding fingers page.<br>it also doesn't look like planet eart: a celebration has a release :(Well, it's out there. Looks like no official release?> He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Today's status says it's his "first published film score". That sounds like awesome news. I really hope this starts a trend...<br><br>I imagine having your own label-thing helps for stuff like expanded releases and sheet music?

...joker theme, by the way, works great in the movie!

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...

Just echoing ronin's question - does anyone know the difference between the standard and limited edition releases yet? Is it just the jewel case vs. digipak, or is there gonna be some extra music? Warner's site doesn't have any extra info yet...
