RIP Heath Ledger.
All in all a brilliant piece of work, well worth buying the more expensive package for the second disc.
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?
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!
With such classics as the new Batman theme, 'A Watchful Guardian, the blissful 'I'm Not a Hero' and a memorable gem in the shape of 'Harvey Two-Face', the soundtrack is without a doubt one of the best of it's kind, and one you'll enjoy for a long time listening to in your bedroom whilst attempting to write your own story on the Caped Crusader (or is that just me?)
All in all, the soundtrack contains some great tracks, but only so has it's faults in the shape of some over-used beats and sounds. To be quite honest, I'm reluctant to say whether this or the soundtrack of 'The Dark Knight Rises' makes it to the top.
The Soundtrack should be heard as one big seventy-five minutes track, there are really no stand out tracks, that but one. The "Why So Serious" (track number one), also know as the Joker theme. First times I was listening the track, I felt it was chaotic and strange. But know I understand it represents the Joker perfectly... He is chaos, but he is also a really intelligent enemy of the Dark knight also, and The Joker has a master plan, its hard too spot for all the confusion and anarchy. The same goes the "Why So Serious" track, listen carefully and you will discover that there is more to it then chaos.
It is a four star soundtrack by it self. But a Five star soundtrack if you have seen the The Dark Knight.

The Vinyl version has vastly superior mastering compared to the brickwalled CD, airy, expansive and dynamic.
If you can afford it and play it back, go for it!
