Any news on season 2 soundtrack?Sehr geehrte Hans Zimmer, und Ihre komplette Gruppe, Ihr seid bestimmt nicht von dieses Weld. Ich kann einfach anders meine Begeisterung nicht besser beschreiben. Ein tausend mal danke für ein bombastische CD, bitte nur noch es auf Hi-Res Audio Format zu Verfügung auf irgendwelche Musik Platform beibringen. Im voraus danke! LG, Jakob.Seems like this is going to be a Dark Phoenix situation where we don't have a tracklist, release date or cover until the week the movie releases. <br><br>I wonder if it's because Miller is still locking down the final cut and Tom's still scoring. Either way, definitely looking forward to this and the movie.Jackman's name has been taken off the IMDb page for Black Widow, so might just be one of those typical IMDb errors (I remember they had him up as the composer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout too).Thats not as annoying a difference as the choral elements for Electro's Death being so muted in the sessions.
Everan, this doesn't make any sense, actually, "I'm Electro" is the film version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider Theme", if you watch the scene in the movie again, you will notice that the film version has the little fragment at the 0:13 seconds mark of "I'm Electro", while the unreleased "Itsy Bitsy Spider" listed here doesn't have it, better saying, "I'm Electro" is actually the true film version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", while the version we know is just a Alternate.You can find it easily on Youtube today, by the way, I can't find the alternate of Electro Showdown Part 1.mpolonest123, actually "unused source" is listed here, it's just with a different name "Farewell", I guess it was meant to be used between "Sins of The Fathers" and "Max Electrocuted", also, you've mentioned a film version of Norman's death song (Which is "Sins of The Fathers"), and If I'm not wrong, that track has just one version...Anonymous, I think he's referring to the film version of "Spidey Logo", the one in the official album releaseDT-2017, The film version of "Harry's Transformation" mixes "Sum Total" with the part between 2:04 and 2:58 from "Special Projects", but with less instruments and a additional electric guitar. I actually like both versions, if you hear the film version, it actually sounds like it was just edited in last hour to fit in the scene, while the version in the album, I'm almost sure it was meant to be used in the full scene, you know, the uncut scene, with the parts as Harry's teeth growing, his column being fused (or whatever is that thing), he looking at the screen, and more...but then they deleted the fragments, and for Zimmer the last hour plan was just throw the intense part of "Special Projects" into the song, and for me, that worked well, I would like to hear the Intense parts of the two alternates of "Harry's Transformation" isolated.
There’s a 3-minute clip of the truck chase on YouTube and I have to say the score sounds pretty cool. A lot of string/percussion work with an awesome electronic motif for the new “Terminator” model. Also, Brad Fiedel’s theme is back. ;)Hmmm, where do you have found the alternate of Electro Showdown Part 1? And what is the track "Farewell"? It is meant to be related to the Norman osborn scene? More likely "Sins of the Fathers" track?, I think not, because the track in that scene is 3 minutes long, while this "Farewell" is just 1 minute long<br>Also, you missed some tracks: Film Version of "Electro Showdown Part 2", Film Version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (which is actually the original version of the Album mix, yeah that one which was cut and renamed to "I'm Electro), an Alternate of "Truck Chase", and "Sins of the Fathers" which I mentioned before.<br>There's also two more alternates of "Flying Montage", one which is just 40 seconds long, and the film version, which doesn't have anything to do with the original version and the two alternates listed here.<br>And yeah, we can't forget about the second alternate of "I'm Spiderman" which is the film version of the track, and it was actually released in the album mix!Isn't his problem when people like Bruckheimer wanted a specific sound and give no freedom in his movies.<br><br>He works for what is given.I think Lorne already has enough noise behind her, for my liking I should start to give way to quality instead of quantity.ASCAP shows that "Farewell To Lilliput" is credited to Jackman/Willis. Is it correct or there is only Jackman? Just thought may be there is a typo on the site.
Any news on the soundtrack for Jack Ryan season 2?I was hoping for Ramin Djawadi to compose The Eternals, well Joseph Trapanese is a good composer so its good news.John powell is flying lowkey now which sucks, His X3 score is just jaw dropping. The Eternals would be perfect for him cause he'd make it epic but Joseph Trapanese is scoring that Surprised Jablonsky hasn't tackled DC or Marvel yet eitherDamn i miss Klaus, he needs a damn come back. Stupid talentedpush...<br><br>please add them...

People, this page is for THE DARK KNIGHT! Stop posting Batman Begins related stuff here.

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! :-)

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^^)
