Actually, yes. I just looked it up in my iTunes library. If by the mob meet you mean the scene where the mob is talking with Lao trough the TV, then yes. It's called "Kill the Batman". It's got a very low but thumping base in the background. That one's one of my favorites.
@RuthlessGravity: Some tracks are suites unto themselves, is what I meant. Half Remembered Dream and Mombassa are made up of two cues from different scenes. Projections is the music from the opening Saito mission. So the ordering is pretty far off.
it is quite possible that mr. zimmer would want to release an expanded score to "hype" the score for awards season...im crossing my fingers, becuase the score that was not released on the album is magnificent and would be a more then welcome addition (i think i speak for everyone here when i say this)
I really hope for an expanded release. I really love the music from the helicopter scene in the beginning when Arthur says "Don't think about elephants" and the music from the hotel dream. Please make one soon, mr z!
The score is not ordered into a suite, these are actually played as they go in the film. The order however is a little off. First half of the tracks are as is in the film (give or take from missing cues). Then around the middle beginning with '528491' should be placed before 'Waiting For A Train'.
'Projections' and 'Don't Think About Elephants' are featured somewhere inbetween 'Dream within A Dream' and 'Waiting For A Train'. Other than that, that as much order as it is represented in film.
And well Zimmer usually mixes his tracks in a order for listening purposes, much like a few other composers who do. Reason being is so that the music doesn't get to repetitive, and other times is for the fluid of the music from one track to another.
I LOVE THIS SOUNDTRACK!! (as well as countless other Soundtracks from Hans Zimmer.
I was wondering (as well as thousands of others) if there was a plan to release more music from the movie? I know that there are some variations of the songs in the movie that didn't make it to the soundtrack. I have the two bonus songs, but there is a compilation of a couple of songs toward the end of the movie that wasn't on the soundtrack. Is it available somewhere?
I felt this is one of the top 5 best scores I have ever heard, it doesn't quite beat out Batman Begins or the Dark Knight but still, the Inception score has very nice tunes. Just wanted to say that the movie Inception along with its score are great. "Keep up the the good work Hans and Nolan and thanks for making me want to dig deeper into my dreams."
A fantastic score! I had the misfortune of missing this one in the theater, but the score alone gives a rich picture of how the film's tale will unfold. I've listened to this one times over. Zimmer's crafting of tracks like "528491", "Dream Within A Dream", "Old Souls", and "Dream Is Collapsing" are tantalizing visions of what my home theater will show me in the immediate future. Thanks, Mr. Zimmer, for giving us yet another feast for the senses! And, of course, to Christopher Nolan, for handing the film's "soul" over to Mr. Zimmer. An "A" score, for sure.
seeing there is that wonderful Japanese character - v. sexy, even to an old, tired and weary duck like me - in Inception, does the music have any Japanes undertones or influences? I feel something, but can't quite bring it to the forefront of my mind......help anyone?
I wouldn't count on it. It seems as if almost never we get complete releases, in terms of a studio release. If there ever is a complete, it would probably only be available as a download. Of all the complete scores I have, I don't think any of them have been released by the label. When I say this, I mean watertower actually releasing an "Inception Complete Score". Ohh, how awesome that would be though......
Yeah i see what you mean...they did officialy release a complete (more complete, at least) album for The Dark Knight, and i'm fairly cetain that was released by the label. That was what got my hopes up because inception and the dark knight are kind of "in the same vein". Oh well i guess we'll see...
Definately in the same vein. The Dark Knight was only a 2-Disc Collector's Edition. It was moderately a complete, but not really a complete. I have a REAL complete, I posted the tracklist on this site for the standard commercial release. I'll copy & paste it. Here you go, from TDK page:
There are many versions of the "Complete" Score out there. The one I have is one disc, comprised of 46 tracks, 423.1 Megabytes, and 2 hours, 55 minutes, and 41 seconds total. And it's completely SFX free. It's a Godsend. Here's the tracklist:
1.) Bank Robbery (Prologue) (6:26) 2.) Because He's Busy (1:41) 3.) Buyer Beware (2:54) 4.) No Limtis (2:55) 5.) White Knight (2:17) 6.) Kill The Batman (3:04) 7.) Why So Serious? (3:00) 8.) Welcome To Honk Kong (1:55) 9.) Break In (3:51) 10.) Agressive Expansion (4:59) 11.) Party Crashers (2:52) 12.) Watch The World Burn (2:00) 13.) Blackmail (2:51) 14.) Dishonor Guard (2:51) 15.) Blood On My Hands (4:51) 16.) The Right Choice (3:27) 17.) Hit Me! (3:10) 18.) Interrogation (2:34) 19.) Two-Way Race (6:56) 20.) Harvey Two-Face (1:41) 21.) Better Class oOf Criminal (2:37) 22.) Introduce A Little Anarchy (5:58) 23.) Resignation - Unlucky (5:23) 24.) The Ferries (4:27) 25.) Hostages & Clowns (2:23) 26.) Building Seige (3:43) 27.) Verge Of Fireworks (5:31) 28.) Morality Of Chance (4:16) 29.) Set The Dogs On Me (3:54) 30.) End Credits (7:23) 31.) Watchful Guardian (Alternate) (0:46) 32.) Always A Catch (Alternate) (0:54) 33.) Heroic Theme (Alternate) (3:20) 34.) Epic Theme (Alternate) (0:22) 35.) Joker Suite (Alternate) (9:14) 36.) Harvey Dent Suite (Alternate) (6:17) 37.) The Dark Knight Suite (Alternate) (7:48) 38.) Ferry Suite (Alternate) (4:25) 39.) Chaos Suite (Alternate) (3:22) 40.) Harvey's Theme (Alternate) (1:18) 41.) Why So Serious? (The Crystal Method Remix) (5:30) 42.) Poor Choice Of Words (Paul Van Dyk Remix) (6:15) 43.) Gunpowder & Gasoline (Mel Wesson Remix) (4:34) 44.) Rory's First Kiss (Ryeland Allison Remix) (6:04) 45.) The Dark Knight Trailer (Performed by Groove Addicts) (1:30) 46.) Interrogation (Alternate) [Extended] (3:06)
Tracks 41-46 are included on the 2-Disc Special Edition. I know that the entire score is labelad as "Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard", but I was wondering if anyone knows which tracks are individually composed by them. I saw a video that has Hans performing the more tense, action pieces while James does the dramatic piano. It's obvious to tell when you are listening to them individually, but I wanted to know for sure. It's a shame this beautiful score could not even get nominated for an Academy Award due to the stupid Academy regulations of it being performed by both of them, and not one (which is why Batman Begins could not get anything either). It truly is an amazing piece of work, unlike ANYTHING I have ever heard. There is a reason why Hans Zimmer is my favorite film composer of all time. I Love You Hans.
Out of every complete that I own, whether it's Avatar, Gladiator, Lord of the Rings (all three) or Transformers.......this one probably has to take the cake.
