As a soundtrack aficiando this ranks as one of my favourite of all time. I'm a big fan of both composers, and didn't think Zimmer would top either Gladiator or Hannibal but this is equally as good. The mark of a soundtrack in it's own right is that it can hold it's own without the film, whilst complementing the film and adding to it. This achieves that admirably. The opener "Why so serious" is electrifying, the use of sub-bass is brilliantly done and the use of the ticking clock very original. I love the way synthesiers have been used in harness with strings, it adds something mystical and gritty to the sound, reminiscent of Blade Runner and other Vangelis work.

All in all a brilliant piece of work, well worth buying the more expensive package for the second disc.

Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard have done it again. An effortless masterpiece that thrills and chills with a grace that only they can produce. The film has not been released yet but the score is so emotional that I am sure that those that loved Batman Begins wil not be disappointed. Love and tragedy is played out perfectly throughout; the pace of the action sequences and high tension wire of suspense is so taught and precise that you really can get lost in Gotham and escape. Nolan credits Zimmer & Newton Howard for one of the reasons as to why he wanted to return to the Batman films. My only disappointment is that there are no lines from the characters within the soundtrack itself; but this soundtrack is so amazing it does not need the support of the cast. Some great orchestral high rise spiraling as Zimmer produced in Hannibal that provide real eerie moments of hairs on the back of your neck and goosepimples all at once. If this film is as good as its soundtrack then this will be the film of the year. I cannot wait.
RIP Heath Ledger.

The Dark Knight * * * *
Music by Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard
Warner Bros Records (RT 73:37)

Certainly the most enjoyable film of the year; however - is the music as enjoyable?

Track 1: Why So Serious starts the disc off on a siren-like noise with alternating strings coupled with driving bass segments, starting off the bank heist at the start of the film. It's a powerful, fast sequence with a 4-note repeating rhythm and the score matches the action perfectly. As we find out later, this is the main theme for the Joker. 2: I'm not a Hero opens with dancing strings and some powerful bass movements repeating the main theme for Batman from Batman Begins only briefly, then it changes for synth thuds, building the strings as Batman finally nears his quarry. Zimmer then introduces brief flurries of heavy brass covering the main action with another statement of Batman's main theme.

3: Harvey Two Face builds gentle, noble strings for the Gotham D.A. Sprinkling this theme with piano, Zimmer and Howard create the mood of a noble, yet twisted man, building the theme to a 6-note motif for the character midway through the piece and then repeating on piano. It's a lovely piece of music - tragic yet noble. The next track, 4: Aggressive Expansion rolls in a powerful statement for Batman in flight, on heavy brass, bass and strings, then low synth, strings and a rolling 6-note motif on the strings for Batman's forceful grabbing of the Mob's banker. The siren-like music heralds the Joker's arrival in 5: Always a Catch, and the Harvey music resurfaces again in 6: Blood on my Hands. Terror strikes in 7: A Little Push, with the Joker exerting his influence on the mob bosses.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this on a whim, just out of interest really, and didn't expect that I'd go back for repeated listens. On the one hand the score is quite predictably "Hollywood blockbuster"-ish with lots of big drums, urgent marcato strings and dark industrial synth sounds. But you get past that, and the vision of the score becomes clearer over repeated listens, and I began to find it a very satisfying piece of work, and as an album, feel that the narrative and coherence works really well: the album flows seamlessly. Recommended for children of darkness everywhere.

On a different note, some reviewers commented that the album leaves off some of the score - but the CD comes in at 73 minutes, so you can't really complain that you don't get your money's worth. Possibly a double CD album would have nailed it 100%, but then maybe the album wouldn't have been so coherent, and anyway, it means you've got an excuse to watch the film for those missing parts eh?

Having heard the few audio teaser clips at the Dark Knight Score website, I knew I had to purchase this CD, and it definitely does not disappoint. There's a lot of electronic sounds in this score which may irritate purists, but it adds wonderfully to the tone and atmosphere of the music, making the film menacing.

Those who purchased the Batman Begins CD will recognise a few themes in this score, but they are not prominent and there is plenty of new material and themes. The tempo is also increased which puts you on the edge of your seat.

I am really looking forward to seeing this film, and the quality of the score bodes well!
