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.

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.

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!

I bought this product, the soundtrack of the smash-hit crime-thriller-superhero-drama film, 'The Dark Knight', shortly after managing to be able to watch it on the big-screen at the local cinema, four years or so after it first debuted, to coincide with the release of the third and final installment in the Christopher Nolan's trilogy, 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

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.

This will really test your system (vinyl version). Already had the cd version as until very recently the vinyl was only available at a stupid price because it was extremely difficult to get hold of. Theprice has now come down to a realistic figure . It is a superb pressing with hardly a pop or crackle. Absolutely awesome.In my view easily the best soundtrack of the Batman trilogy.

This soundtrack is a dark but beautiful soundtrack. I heard the soundtrack before I had the pleasure to see the movie. Before seeing the movie the soundtrack was good, with good tracks, but it seemed to miss something. Now that I have seen the movie, and know what the emotional feeling of the movie are, the soundtrack great... For me I now feel the anger, sorrow of the movie, but also feel of courage and men that are ready to sacrifice them self for the freedom of others.

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.
