they are coming from the soon to be released app exclusively for the iphone/ipod. free? nope.
wow over 50minutes! i really need to get this
i can't find this app, has someone an itunes link for me?
And the cows are milked until they fall over dead ....
looks like the app hasn't been released yet... Hybrid, do you have a release date?
yeah but, the sticker is the same as the one that people could buy at the san diego comic con right?
The App is not out yet, I'm just able to be a beta tester with full content.
It's fun & working, I guess it'll be out very soon.
The Theme Suites are great.
Everyone should just, at the occasion, take a deep breath & listen to Wayne Manor. It really is something.
again some action cues? or maybe this time some beautiful cues with emotions etc?
Hybrid, is it more of the same? Or some new themes?
Also much action and percussion or slower tracks?
And what's the price? I hope not 14.99 euro like inception cause that is totally overpriced for an in-app purchase.
i hope it has some slower tracks this time
@Hybrid: Are the tracks "standalone" listenable or do I've to start the app?
There are exclusively through the app.
Is it possible to rip these tracks? I'm not buying an iphone!
buy the ipad instead ;)
Like a lot of other games and programs for computers, apps contain quite a bit of files and data. Somewhere in the data for this TDKR app should be four audio files that will most likely be WAVs or maybe mp3s (at least, it was about that simple for the Inception Dream App). It's just that you'll have to buy the app to be able to download it and look through its files. You don't have to have an Apple device to access this music.
Alternatively, you can just wait for someone who does have the software and hardware and money and skills to extract the music and upload it somewhere (since we are living in the times of piracy right now).
Yeah, sorry, I'm not buying an Ipod, Iphone, or Ipad.
Check It Now ; h t t p://itunes.apple.com/app/the-dark-knight-rises-z+/id54265687 1?mt=8
nice... us-only and no android -.-
I listened to the free stuff already. Are all the songs "sound effects" and ambience?
Otherwise I won't buy the free chapters...
anyone rip the music ? what is the bitrate ?
All right, I just ripped the track off and the quality is bad. Only 98kb/s...
The suites can be found online by now. Great music, shit quality. Such a shame...
what the fuck? first all out war, now this? Why can't you people release these tracks in normal HIGH QUALITY, eh?
It's all about money dude :P
A Watchful Guardian
what a load of bullshit, we need better quality
Ok, I'm kind of pissed off right now. I JUST bought the Origins exclusive thinking (foolishly apparently) that the music would end up in iTunes on my iPhone. I'd like to not have to download the music online since I just paid for it, so does anyone know how I can find those music files on my iPhone? It's not jailbroken.
Download and install iExplorer. It's free and you can copy the M4A files
D A R T H
Mmm it just demo version of regular tracks...
catwoman theme and suite would've been more appropriate for a game of shadows, sim's theme. Woulda been a kick ass fight sequence to! :D
D A R T H you clearly don't understand...
First, these are not demos, but orchestrated Theme Suites that were written long before the score was adapted to the film... o_O
D A R T H
It's not new cue but long versions of the 4 themes of the album ?
god -.- these are cues where zimmer collected his ideas and worked with them afterwards. so you can hear here and there some variations or extended stuff of that what you're hearing in the score.
i do like this, especially wayne manor and orphan. hope to see some more stuff around :)
Wayne manor hell yes, best TDKR track so far!
the app has release ! plz check your app store guys !
lots of track need to buy I think the inception app is more fun cuz those track of each track is unlock by yourself !!
absolutely awesome suites. My god
I get the Bonus track from Apple iphone app and it's along suite 52 min full & complete [ Wayne Manor(22:05)+Bane(19:49)+Orphan (4:51)+Selina Kyle (5:41) ], yes the sound quality isn't good as you all say, it's only (m4a 98k/s) but it is good for now, and for me my favourite cues are (Wayne Manor & Selina Kyle) the most complete suites of; Imagine the fire (Wayne Manor) and Mind If I Cut In? (Selina Kyle),It really is a wonderful work of H,z.
R I S E
The last minute of Wayne Manor is just fucking good ! A shame we didn't hear that theme before !
The 96kbps files seem to be the core information. They are also heavily clipped. There are better quality versions out there.
Thought the music worked a lot better in the film than on the album personally. Was surprised at how well the Catwoman stuff worked. "Risen From Darkness" sounds way better in the film as well. Sounded a bit like a pop song the way it was mixed on the album.
Zimmer's most recent good scores IMO if complete: (Not counting PG movies or lower, not counting anything before 2005)
Dead Man's Chest At World's End Batman Begins Dark Knight Da Vinci Code Angels & Demons Sherlock Holmes A Game Of Shadows (Complete and on the proper pitch, yes) Inception
I tell by DVD rips, complete ways and what not.
Dark Knight Rises is ok, but a blend of everything we've heard. It does better if you say its more so a 'continuation' of BB & TDK. BB and TDK were actually quite different in terms of sound, as were the films. Zimmer doesn't live up to the hype this time. :/ Perhaps if he released complete things, but for the moment... the album edits suck. Not the music, but the way it's produced. I feel everyone would enjoy his scores more if they were produced more properly and not like a kid did it. What college did they go to to produce such terrible representations of albums? Like seriously? FULL SCORES> PEOPLE WILL BUY THEM AND ENJOY THEM!!! Ill even help pay to produce them if money is the question. How much, tell me. Ill help you out, hans!
Hybrid I have issues with the app, I do like it alot, but I want to download the free discussions and buy the other music and I can't, it says that I'm not logged into the app store or the internet and I am
It's implied John Blake will become Robin at the end of the movie. That's all I know. I don't remember where I read this but dear mother of god. All the reviews say the last 30 minutes of the film will be crazy good. Anyone think Rises can get oscar for best picture?
More Zimmer haters :D
Can Anyone Explain; what definitely is the Origins (The Dark Knight Rises Z+ Apple App Exclusive)? what are these tracks?
From WaterTower, the Deluxe Edition is available in lossless high quality at HDtracks :
"We've gotten a couple commets about lossless audio. You can download The Dark Knight Rises Soundtrack with lossless files from HD tracks, and get 20% off by using this discount code: DK20 - Expires July 29th, 2012."
Complete edition :O
who's saying that this is complete?
don't get it, so if we buy the itunes soundtrack we will get lossless audio and for that they give a discount code for 20% off on the soundtrack when we buy it?
No, you can use that coupon code if you are anyone :)
Sttill don't get it, so where do I use the coupon?
The CD bonus tracks should have been made available lossless in the first place!!
looks like the quality isn't good

No Stone Unturned (7:29) Risen From Darkness (4:28) All Out War (3:21)
dear hans, i am a big fan of your music, i really loving your work and hearing it every day. i'm not hearing anymore music from the radio, those damn pop songs etc, but only scores and especially your work, like the thin red line, last samurai etc.
I've heard so many times batman begins and the dark knight. especially batman begins was a masterpiece. the parts from james were absolutely beautiful, but also your action cues were majestic, like molossus etc. tdk was a little bit a disappointement, as james haven't work THAT much anymore on there, and i don't know what it was, but tdk doesn't sound THAT beautiful like begins.
then it was time for tdkr, i eagerly awaited this score, you've promoted it as the most epic batman score you've done, you've created something BRAND new. i always read from interviews how epic it is going to be, it will be so much greater then begins and tdk etc. i really had my hopes high and i expected something epic, like you've said! and the movie is going to be the final one, the end. so i thought you really were going to put all your energy and bring us something that will knock us from our chairs. you see, that i had high expectations ^^
now i've heard your tdkr score, not only one time, not only twice, i heard it very very often, to give the score the chance to grow. but seriously, and i'm sorry to say, it is a HUGE HUGE HUGE DISSAPPOINTMENT. where are the new things you've created, where are the themes, where is the epicness you've promised? what i'm hearing in the score are only reprises from batman begins and tdk, and also some mixes of both movies. those "new" melodies and parts of the score, which are only a few, are also some reprises from transformers, pirates and sherlock holmes. i don't know what happened here... was it too much from me for hoping to hear something more and some more cues that are sounding a bit more new than just remixes of begins and tdk? and hearing over and over so many parts from transformers and all those other past scores?
i don't want to blame you, i really love your work, you're truely gifted with talent of creating so beautiful music, and you've showed us so many times, what masterpieces you can bring, but tdkr is a huge dissappointment and i just can't understand anymore your words of those interviews as i'm missing them on your score. i'm sorry for those words, but i just had to say it.
i only can wish, that you'll get back at your style from the 90s and early 2000s times, with music like the thin red line, last samurai, pearl harbour, lion king, as all your current works aren't that great anymore. maybe you just need a break, to collect ideas, to get fresh again...?
thank you again for all of your past works and hope to see you soon again with some beautiful scores :)
TDKR may not have been his best score, but it definitely wasn't just recycled material; there were plenty of new themes.
D A R T H
Like pirate of the caribean 4. Maybe the Album in worser than the complete score... my note :
potc4 :album 2/5 / complete score : 3,5/5
this score is better with all bonus tracks
Without 2/5, with 3/5, complete score ?/5
problem is that those new themes are also some recycled materials from other movies. like i said, transformers, pirates and so on. totally uninspired, no ideas and no structure at all in this.
and it breaks my heart while saying this, as i'm a huge huge huge hans zimmer fan and loved the batman music from begins so much and also tdk. but tdkr is really sadly a dissappointement.
there is still hope that with a recording session and those app-cues the overall of the music will get better and i can change my mind to this :)
So, next step is the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch App called "The Dark Knight Rises Z+" !
I won't say much about it, it's something the Inception App. Should be very interesting.
What kept my interest is the following statement :
"Additional Z+ content will be available as an in-app purchase, including a special “Origins” pack that features an extra 55 minutes of music. “Origins” comprises four original suites (“Wayne Manor”, “Bane”, “Selina Kyle”, and “Orphan”), representing the musical DNA for The Dark Knight Rises. Zimmer wrote these pieces while the film was in the early stages of development, and they served as the blueprints for what would become the final soundtrack."
Hi Hybrid, I have questions about that.. well obviously the score is out, and every single track is in the track list above... My questions are... when can we see this app probably coming out? and also, to get the origins special pack we have to buy that pack or we have to buy the app? could you answer that? I mean just to make it a bit clearer... But I'm really looking forward for this! sounds pretty cool!
Should be a matter of days.
The App is free (like Inception). This "Suites pack" content is not, though.
But the App is the only way to get those suites.
That's what I meant the other day when HZ said there would be a "lot of crying" ! xD
Oh and btw Hybrid, is there anyway I could email you or something if you could say something from me to mr. zimmer... If you can email me so I can tell you by email then my email is email@example.com I just would like the opportunity if you would be able to
Oh great then thats fair and its cool because we get a free app but then just pay 55 minutes of new soundtrack, perfect! THANKS hybrid!
That pisses me off. I don't have any of those devices. I'm not an angry person, but Damn you, Zimmer.
damn smartphones... it's the same like two steps from hell "demon dance"
It's no problem. Apps can be extracted and ripped easily. Only downside is that the music will be 128kpbs at best to keep the app size within limits
I'm sure someone will rip them and put them out there in no time. I'd love to buy and pay legitimately, but that's the way it goes with these exclusives...
Worst-case scenario I know a few people that have iPhones/iPods. At least this content is getting released at all.
jup, not angry at all with those ipad blabla releases. at least we're getting it, because someone will be ripping it. only what matters is, WHEN will they release it. and i hope those cues will be better then those on the score itself ^^
Hybrid, will these officially be the Theme Suites? If so, I can't wait!
h t t p://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=34498
what a SURPRISE!! thanks man..
sounds great so far, a lot of transformers, pirates, batman begins, tdk ^^
It is amazing. I didn't like very much the previous scores for this saga, and I had mixed feeling with Inception.... TDKR is brutal, touching and the electronic beats kick my a_s. Hans at his best! IMHO. J PS: Just ignore the people who is going to say the transformers,batman begins, peacemaker things...
why ignore my post? it's obviously those movies, but that's not a problem. i like the score so far.
and yes, it sounds very brutal :)
A W E S O M E !!!
I think I just killed my ears with "Imagine The Fire" ! :D
Hahaha I know my neighbors are pissed to be up this early ;)
they cut bane's theme in half for the CD :(
haha hybrid, i had to laugh, i'm hearing to nonstop "imagine the fire". it's so full of force and my ears are hurting already ^^ and not only my ears, but also my neighboor knocked at my door ^^
now the fun part.. figuring out the right order of tracks
there's definitely no real suite like "Like a dog chasing Cars" here, other than "Why do we fall?" which ends prematurely.
As I said earlier, the CD is focused on the score as arranged in film. Something HZ does quite rarely actually. For the Suites, wait & see ! ;)
And DAMMNNN , I have to wait to quit my work to listen to this gem...argh :(
Don't act like a kid Darka, you're much better than that. ;P
Hey Hybrid, do you know why Hans focused this time on providing actual score on the CD instead of suites? Is it because fans are asking for it and most reviews mention it?
Cause in that case we have to remain vocal for his next movies.
Really love the score and representation so far. It's been a loooooong time since I was satisfied with a commercial Zimmer album.
Simply cause he'll release them... :)
You know, when it's about Theme Suites with Hans, we are dealing with 5 to 20 min tracks.
The Dark Knight had a bit more than 45 min of theme suites. For TDKR, it's around 50/55 min of suites.
So there will be a whole seperate album of suite? Cool!
Or perhaps a Special Edition collectors edition with the scores for BB, TDK, and TDKR, with a bonus disc of suites from TDKR?
You'll see ! You'll seeeee !!
I can hint, I can't shout ! Orders coming from above ! :)
Stop trolling us and just tell us hybrid lol its killing me...
Man! I've been trying so hard to listen to as little as possible until the album's release, you know, to not spoil the "first listen" but this is mighty tempting! Only one more week!
Hybrid, please tell us what's coming!! :D
Lol I don't have to know what is coming. I prefer knowing WHEN it's coming :p
Must say some of the songs of the album already sound like suites :)
According to coming soon details about a new Hans Zimmer app will be announced soon. Now, anybody how to rip music from an app? Lol
You know, the last time we got a major album release that focused mainly on film arrangements was At World's End, and we ended up getting that bonus suites disc along with the treasure chest packaging for the entire trilogy...
Bane Suite's gonna be massive!
Wow...Just as I thought.
Didn't take very long for this free leak...
Imagine The Fire, I can say imagine the greatness !!
youtube.com/ watch?v=2Z3jMMXPwqM - someone put up a decent model of the percussion part that they cut out of Gotham's Reckoning in the OST version (film version still has it)
They did not cut anything out of Gotham's Reckoning. I'm getting sick of people thinking that the Nokia trailer music was supposed to be a part of the "Gotham's Reckoning" track. This is now and always has been the prologue music.
People seem to disregard Bane's theme as actually being Bane's theme, and rather just music from the trailer. It's going to recur and it's going to be in different forms.
Oh, and it takes a special kind of idiot to think that the Nokia/MTV trailer music is supposed to be Batman's theme. Or nickname the cue "The Caped Crusader."
If you actually read what I said, you would know I never said it had anything to do with the nokia trailer or any other trailer.
It's a percussion sequence at around 4:00 in the prologue -- a part that they edited out of the OST version. (aka it's the drum sequence where Bane takes the blood out of the doctor and then the music pauses)
Huh. This is embarrassing. I'm sorry, that was an idiot move on my part.
As Hybrid Soldier said wait for complete suite.
Don't call people Idiots on here when YOU YOURSELF EQUALLY QUALIFY FOR THAT TITLE.
You're talking about a goddamn film score you got the PRIVILEGE of hearing - for FREE I might add.
SO STFU and let people enjoy their day.
The soundtrack sounds amazing!!!!! I quite like the slower bits in there too!!! SOOOO EXCITED
What's that new new sound coming from ^^
Risen From Darkness!I love it!
since yesterday ive heard it many times...i´m no musician, i just listen, compare a little to other sounds...i know if i´ll love music even when i hear it 1st and these track just simply great - it´s what i´ve expected...thx to mr. zimmer & team and greetings from germany...
I can't believe that they are people around here believing that Hans Zimmer will create a whole new soundtrack. That is not the point. One note can make the difference and that's the point. He slightly changed some cues and it's pretty damn good! And here we have, at least, 6 new cues (2-3 new themes). I think it's pretty enough for à third and last movie.
JNH part was good but all that darkness from previous soundtrack came from Zimmer's work not JNH.
Plus, remember that in the end, it's all down to Nolan's choices. That being said, Nolan described this last movie as a "full circle". The movie who will end the trilogy. So you got to dig in the past to make the bond with the current movie. If you have something to reproach to Zimmer you better reproach it to Nolan because he is the one who take decision and have the last word in working process... And you can't reproach anything to Nolan concerning Batman... IMO
After so weak score, I'm afraid that Man of Steel would be a disaster...
Shame, Mr Zimmer. You sais that 3rd part will be epic, but that was just words...
In my opinion it sounds epic to have been done by himself... Now the only issue is that if he would have done the other 2 soundtracks by himself then this would have sounded AWESOME, but james newton howard wasn't unboard on this one so it was a change we could hear from the emotion in music and for hans being on himself than being with james... I do believe man of steel will sound epic because it will be his first take on that franchise and no other muscisian is helping out... Remember that you should not compare the new man of steel theme with the old, because even the film itself just as batman is different from the old classic ones, but do respect your opinion
No other musicians? Check the credits for TDKR - Hans never work alone, unfortunately. Always ~10-15 co-writers/producers/orchestrators involved in composing (or should I say generating?) music. JNH was fine addition - he brought beauty and 'softness' to Nolans vision. Without him it's not the same. Hans lost his ability to write nice themes. Underscore and mindless use of RCP samples. I just expected more. Music in TDKR would probably work, but I have a bad feeling that temp-track from previous movies would work also.
So, did Hans use the recordings he asked from the world for mixing Bane's Chant, cause it seems that he didn't. The chant stands faded away in the composition. I assume that it was just a marketing thing...
Don't assume that hans will use bane's chant during the whole 70 minutes of score.. he actually needs to create variations and rhythm for the movie.. this is just half of the music in the movie.. I bet you will be able to hear a heavier chant during the movie and a much longer version... but for the score I didn't expected him to use the chant as the whole score it would have sucked.. He mixed all 3 soundtracks perfectly in this one, which that helps us remember the other 2 films and the journey of bruce wayne... Actually one of Hans best works so far.
Well if I compare the other trilogy (POTC).
Batman is way better!
POTC theme < Molossus The Kraken/Jack Sparrow < Why So Serious/Like A Dog Chasing Cars I Don't Think Now Is The Best Time/ Drink Up Me Hearties < Rise (or Imagine The Fire)/ Gotham's Recknoning.
Really, The Dark Knight Rises is one of his best soundtrack ever no doubt that. He perfectly combines all of the major cues i(BB + TDK) and creates new ones that are massive!
I wonder if they gonna make a concert premier as they did for TDK or Inception.
Sorry, but the Pirates 3 score is way better than the Batman scores standalone (No way Molossus is better than the POTC theme). However, in the movies the Batman scores induced the mood better.
I admit pirates is a good soundtrack, I like the kraken track but the 3 pirates soundtrack was the best of the four, but I loved molossus but now I only like it, I mean, no stone unturned is the new thing! its perfect to me! but it's always a thing of taste, I in my case hear more batman than pirates but true that the 3rd pirates soundtrack is really good!
@Mitsos, I too am disappointed by the lack of the deshi basara chant. I was expecting it to be much more prominent in the album :'(
The At worlds end score really brought a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy with new themes and tunes that weren't totally rehashed like stranger tides. I like the dark knight rises album, but I think the potential that it could have been better with James newton howard really dims the light on it. It's not bad, but it's not the greatest. If anything, Hans needs a break.
the chant is used frequently...
I agree with much of the above.
At World's End gave us a satisfying theme for WIll and Elizabeth's story arc....Which really speaks volumes to that score, apart from the rehashed stuff from Pirates 1 and 2.
The Dark Knight Rises gives us a Bane theme, meanwhile rehashing everything under the sun with both Batman begins and Dark Knight...
Youd think Zimmer would have given us a better end theme this time around but no...he gave us a percussion-lite version of A Dark Knight off the Dark Knight Ost.
WTF Zimmer...WTF. You lose your balls or something?
The Dark Knight May RISE, but I think its high time a film composer FALLS...Yes Im looking at YOU Zimmer.
Thanks for giving me the SAME SHIT I already heard off the last two albums. CUT AND FUCKING PASTED. Fucking HACK.
Will it be possible to have the chronological order including the bonus tracks?
Thanks in advance.
D A R T H
this is not the good order (i have no information yet) but that's sound good like this ;-)
A Storm Is Coming (0:37) On Thin Ice (2:55) Gotham's Reckoning (4:08) Mind If I Cut In? (3:27) Underground Army (3:12) Born In Darkness (1:57) All Out War (3:21) No Stone Unturned (7:29) The Fire Rises (5:33) Nothing Out There (2:51) Despair (3:14) Fear Will Find You (3:08) Why Do We Fall? (2:03) Death By Exile (0:23) Imagine The Fire (7:25) Necessary Evil (3:16) Rise (7:11) Risen From Darkness (4:28) The Shadows Betray You (5:20) The End (6:13)
For me Rise is just before The End.
D A R T H
And Like this ;-)
A Storm Is Coming (0:37) On Thin Ice (2:55) Gotham's Reckoning (4:08) Mind If I Cut In? (3:27) Underground Army (3:12) Born In Darkness (1:57) Risen From Darkness (4:28) The Shadows Betray You (5:20) The Fire Rises (5:33) Nothing Out There (2:51) Despair (3:14) All Out War (3:21) Fear Will Find You (3:08) Why Do We Fall? (2:03) Death By Exile (0:23) Imagine The Fire (7:25) Necessary Evil (3:16) No Stone Unturned (7:29) Rise (7:11)
The End (6:13)
Much better dude!!
Where does the end go? Meh. Can't tell until July 20th :(
D A R T H
The end go...ath the end ^_^
:( was hoping it was gonna me the end then rise then risen from darkness for the credits track.
D A R T H
Well, following the dramatic progression of the music i think it's better like this (if i suppose tracks mixed together are well placed)
A Storm Is Coming (0:37) On Thin Ice (2:55) Gotham's Reckoning (4:08) Mind If I Cut In? (3:27) Underground Army (3:12) Born In Darkness (1:57) All Out War (3:21) The Shadows Betray You (5:20) The Fire Rises (5:33) Nothing Out There (2:51) Despair (3:14) Fear Will Find You (3:08) Why Do We Fall? (2:03) Death By Exile (0:23) Imagine The Fire (7:25) Necessary Evil (3:16) No Stone Unturned (7:29) Rise (7:11) Resolution Risen From Darkness (4:28) End Title part 1 The End (6:13) End title part 2
D A R T H
I think the order is good...(chronological)
Good order DARTH I hope this is how it plays out in the movie
abrubt editing with no stone unturned is annoying. just as it leads to ra's theme, what I believe is anyway, it cuts to train fight music. IT sounds great, one of the best tracks on this score IMO but please, edit more professionally??
I also like it when the tracks are in individual and not run in together. like on stranger tides, terribly short for score but no crossfades!! like brian tylers work hans you should take a lesson from him ;p
I dunno if Mr Zimmer is reading the comments on this site. But I must say that I (and a whole lot of other people on the net) am happy that a LOT of good music from the film or suites are released. And not remixes, unrelevant tracks or tracks with dialog. This is the way a score should be. Thanks!
Big reprise of the "Train Fight" sequence from Begins mixed, of course, with Bane & Catwoman.
With the so awaited "let's kick the vilain" reprise, used in Begins when Ra's sees the end and when Bat beats the Joker... :D
End of the cue is more cooler, with a very nice new theme finishing it !
Great great stuff all around !
No, but i heared ;
Bombers Over Ibiza (Junkie XL Remix) Risen From Darkness The Shadows Betray You The End All Out War but, i think we can get the full album 16jul-12.
Where did you find the last track then? Have been searching for more than an hour now. Ugh, i hate all this marketing drivel of special exclusive editions. It's Hans zimmer, not rihanna or gaga...
is no stone unturned released yet?
Where the FRICK did you guys hear NSU??????
RfD, TSBY, and TE are my favorite extra tracks.
Hybrid, there is a cue in the "The Dark Knight Rises Mountain Dew Batcave Featurette" that seems brand new to me, but not on the soundtrack or any previous ones....really brassy and heroic...any ideas what it is? Its 2.05 onwards....
"Imagine the Fire" for example.
really? Imagine the fire or the shadows betray you. Those tracks are very different comparing to scorponok. IMO
I love the music from the film, but I have to say that I miss the emotional touch of James newton Howard. In begins & tdk the emotional element had a strong presence while now I feel it does not.
NOT SAYING ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THE SCORE BUT JUST WHAT I FEEL IS DIFFERENT.
Maybe it will be in the suite/collectors edition cd as hybrid hinted is coming.
totally agree in this. the cues are all well done, but i expexted A LOT more. especially when hans always told us how awesome and eeeeeepic this will going to be and how different etc. but what is exactly different for him? mixing the tunes from the last two movies together? don't know, just not that much new stuff here. i mean, the best parts of the score are elements from batman begins and tdk. batman begins had sooooo many beautiful sad and emotional themes and melodies as also some lovely action tunes. tdk had again some good stuff and remarkable things like "a dark knight" or "like a dog chasing cars" etc...
and what exactly has tdkr? what can i remember from the tracks? not so much, only melodies from the last two movies, and that dissapoints actually. hopefully in the movie there are some more cues to discover and having the touching and depressing feeling like in begins and tdk and discovering some new material there. and hopefully the upcoming "suite"-cd version will give us a better representation of the score.
again, i don't to blame zimmer for this, i don't think it is boring, i'm only dissapointed as I've expected much more after reading his own words and actually after hearing the two last movies.
and it has TOO much of transformers in it. i didn't like first transformers (first score) after hearing some similarities with the begins score, but now hearing in a batman score some stuff from transformers is sad :/
I say nothing else for weeks. But I have no idea. Or does it? My friend "Skorponok" says yes. And most reviewers too ...
Why are some hard to admit it? This music is much worse than its predecessors. This indicated, two tone batman theme, the constant repetition, the bad "Transformers" mixed style something. It lacks a James Newton Howard. Without him, no structure.
We heard you the first time, why insist ?
We also hear you say "old news to me" and talking down to us fans. So why insist?
Would be new to me... On the last pages I was able to find several of my comments. I'm not a Hans Zimmer "hater", but what he offers his fans for several years is an insult. And I'm not willing to accept this. Here it was attempted to sell inferior merchandise to fans as ne plus ultra. Example? REMIX
My name is anAnymous, not AnOnymous...
Scorponok is in blatant use here...
and believe it or not, so is a tiny bit of score most of you probably missed -
if you were paying attention during Pirates 3 at the final battle when Will's Father Bootstrap wakes up before he attacks Davy (or when Jack talks to his dad about living forever) - you'll catch that little motif reprised during Imagine the Fire and the extra cue Risen From Darkness...
I agree! There's definitely some nice emotional moments in Born in Darkness and Necessary Evil for sure though!
I do not find anything that belong to the transformers score. Scorponok? Where? I listen this track. The cue is really different. The notes are different. The tempos are different. The sound is different.
