well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be releasedCool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...Hey hybrid soldier! You mentioned on the ghost in the shell page about white fang so I came here! Can you give us a list of the cues as they appear in the film please? The Basil Poledouris cues and the Hans Zimmer cues pleaseI imagined it ... hopefully this time Max Ritcher does not give him a lollipop and refuses to launch his music
Yes Unbreakable.
<br>
<br>Exactly like White Fang. Have Poledouris write a score, then HZ do another, then pick what you want from both.
<br>
<br>Ghost In The Shell was kinda different...In the credits of the movie, Max Ritcher appears as the Main Composer, meanwhile, Lorne appears as Additional MusicI find that it would be best to accredit both and launch the two soundtracks and all happy.Hybrid implies that Max Ritcher's score was rejected, and that Lorne made a new one and in the end, the best of both has been used.  I am right?ANd now apparently another guy is scoring it as well lmao
Technically he's a little under 50% used so there's no obligation. But he wrote a whole score for it.but if Lorne has written 50% of the score you should have a credit like in Ghost in the shellLorne is got additional music credit, not for co-composer, and still appear the image of the label for the soundtrack.But Lorne is still not credited as an official composer.  It is possible that Lorne shares credit with Max.In other news Lorne just finished compiling the OST for Gemini Man...
When Richter was the composer there was an album planned at Deutsche Grammophon...<br><br>When Lorne jumped in to write a new score for the movie, apparently that release was cancelled... Now that film has like 50/50 MR LB, and nothing's planned at all.<br><br>So we'll see, but apart from posting some cues of his score online, like Lorne did before, I doubt there'll be an official release... And if Richter's release gets back on track, it would definitely have his score only.Hybrid, by "not happening" you mean Richter's part of the score or Balfe's? Or the whole thing is as messed up as Ghost in the Shell, regarding the score?@Hybrid why?Probably not happening...Huh. Weird how Harper and HGW worked on continuous chunks of the movie, like Hans assigned them reel by reel or something...

Sorry about that, it just seems that people are really eager to get the Batman Begins complete score, so much so talkback on it is leaking onto the Dark Knight Score. Just goes to how how badly folk want it.

I wont post the link to the sites either, and chances are it is just another fake but it looked kind of legit. Anyone can really find it if you google "Batman Begins complete score". Apparently the owner of the site was only able to get a copy of the track listing/artwork.

I'm just waiting for all the "We need a Dark Knight Complete score" talkback starting. It's bound to happen seeing as theres about 2 and a half hours of music in The Dark Knight lol. Really looking forward to it. The new score is epic!!

Congrats on "Escalating" the score from Batman Bagins Mr Zimmer and Mr Howard

I'm glad I already pre-ordered the album, because the audio quality of the leaked album is lower than what I like and there are moments when it seems like the audio hasn't been smoothed over or run through the appropriate filters or edited. Maybe it's just a leak of the unfinished thing, like a wooden table just before it's been stained.

Hey can anyone tell me if they remember the theme from Batman Begins that played when bruce plays the piano to open the batcave doors? Does that apprear on the cd? And if so does it sound like it did in Batman Begins? I loved that theme

"Hey can anyone tell me if they remember the theme from Batman Begins that played when bruce plays the piano to open the batcave doors?"

Dear Matt, the theme you are looking for is heard on Batman Begins expanded score, "End Credits", (which I call "Ametrida", to corelate with other BB track titles). I'm not sure if that particular theme is heard on The Dark Knight soundtrack, but I think it is not there. Perhaps in the movie, so that would mean we will have to wait for The Dark Knight Complete Score.

By the way, does anyone know if there is Batman Begins Complete Score, beside the regular and expanded ones? I mean, the BB score is amazing and it would be pity not to hear every single note from it, because there we some pretty cool themes not heard on the regular score, or the expanded one (which is actually the regular with only track order changed plus few official score edits - pretty dumb, ha?).

Bring on Batman Begins Complete Score!!!

Cheers!

Matt, sorry, I realized later I had made a mistake. The theme I mentioned is when Alfred plays the piano while the mansion is burning, not Bruce. We should wait for a Complete Score to appear to hear that outstanding theme!

This Score Is Brilliant The Best Score EVER

ZED reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-09 00:00:00
I'm in Australia and just got a copy of the soundtrack and all I can say is that it is a masterpiece! The opening track "Why So Serious?" is harsh, brutal and down right chilling, but like every track, there is a constant pulse to the music. "Like A Dog Chasing Cars" will be a highlight for many action score fans and "Harvey Two-Face" is just so full of honest passion! The end track "A Dark Knight" is 16 minutes of pure beauty, power and menace and i'd pay huge bucks just to have that one piece of music. It is by far one of the most brilliant pieces of music I have ever heard! "The Dark Knight" score is one of the most innovative and compelling scores I have ever heard. It may sound crazy but every time the Joker's theme comes in, I get a cheeky smile on my face. It is pure genius! This is a score for people who understand and appreciate the realm of sound design aswell as music itself. If this score doesn't take you to the deepest, darkest, adventurous thoughts of your mind then there is seriously something wrong with you! ;) As the Joker would say... "Why So Serious?".
This soundtrack is an absolute must for any music fan! Take care all.. :)

The originality of the score is amazing. I love how it still has strong ties to the first BB score, so it's more of a musical evolution than a sequel score. The duo didn't throw much out but instead added upon it and built it in layers. I love the dynamics introduced by combining Jame's pule elegance with Zimmer's very brash bombastico style. In my opinion this is by far the most intrigueing and dark scores ever written. Applaude gentleman, we've just heard the work of masters.

I have the leaked soundtrack and "A Dark Knight" seems to be screwed up at the last few minutes. It seems to skip a lot for some reason

"And No It isn't a Theme Of John god damn williams why should howard take a theme from a composer not as genius as him"

First of all, John Williams IS the GREATEST COMPOSER EVER! However, the theme heard in "Harvey Two-Face" is NOT from "Hook". That is simply a musical idea, or a motif, which occured to James Newton Howard, which concidentally sounds like a theme from "Hook". But, frankly, I cannot recall any such theme in "Hook".

By the way, The Dark Knight music is so good, I already have it pre-ordered at Amazon.com weeks ago!

I think this soundtrack has more action than Batman Begins, also BB themes are here somewhat more developed and much more defined, as if Hans and James attentionally did not allow those themes in BB to fully develop, thus emphasizing the movie's "Begins" character. Here, Batman is stronger, more defined, non-compomising and such is the music, as well.

The theme for the Joker is excellent. It depicts the character as not just some clown, but rather as a real psychotic murderer, also prone to theatricality as is Batman.

"Blood on My Hands" is one of the reare good love themes heard in 2008, or in couple of years. Harvey's theme is very good, nice, ellegant, but foreboding. Newton Howard used one of the themes from Batman Begins for Harvey Dent.

"Like a Dog Chasing Cars" is yet another brilliantly composed chase sequence theme, almost as a sequel to "Molossus" (which I call "Rooftops and Highways").

"A Dark Knight" could have been more thematically developed. However, I should wait for the CD to arrive to judge on that one.

So far, I'm not disappointed. The movie will be undoubtedly the best Batman movie and the best of 2008. Great work!

Cheers!

I'm sorry, I meant "intentionally" instead of "attentionally". Lapsus! :-)

So I heard the Leak..and besides the quality, I can't help but notice how repetative the score is..nothing fresh and exciting..I'm hoping that the leak is just stiched together clips, because if not, I'm so dissapointed

I don't think so, it's a masterful sequel score. People who liked the Batman Begins score are going to love this one.

I listen the score and I'm a little disapointed to no hear real new things! The score is always between Da Vinci Code, King Arthur and some scores of James Newton Howard and there is cues very exciting (I think "Like A Dog Chasing Cars" and "A Dark Knight") but some tracks like "Why So Serious?" or "Blood On My Hands " are definitely boring).
However, it's a pleasure for those who have like the "Batman Begins" score. The themes are here and with a good arrangement but it lacks a piece of novelty.
But maybe 'Dark Knight' is the "Dead man's Chest" of Christopher Nolan's Batman serie.
I wait his "World's End".
Now, it seems that music of "Dark Knight" is very effective in the movie and it's the main objective!! :D

Tracks like "Harvey Two-Face", "Agressive Expansion", "Like a dog chasing cars" or "A Dark knight" are really brilliant. However maybe I'm a little bit disappointed by the rest of the soundtrack; although I think the Joker's theme will be perfect in the movie, it's really unlistenable as a music cue... (forgive my uncertain english I'm french^^)

Track 14 is a masterpiece. It sounds like Chevalier of Sangreal and Am I not merciful. A perfect mix between these two tunes added over the Batman theme give a amazing sound for The DARK KNIGHT one. Brilliant.
And it's also the case for the joker's theme. It 's unbelievable how it works well with the batman theme in track 8 : Like A Dog Chasing Cars (5:02)
