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.

I didn’t think Hans Zimmer could better what he did for Batman Begins, but I’m wrong. The same Batman signatures with the typically unmistakable Zimmer tone, pushes this soundtrack to new levels

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.

Zimmer and Howard trump their awesome core for 'Batman Begins' with this Minimalsit epic. Dark, intense and deeply unsettling, the two composers seem to be channeling Philip Glass's psychotic twin with pounding rhythms and throbbing chords as they obsessively reiterate their simple musical motifs. The best score of the year so far, and probably Zimmer and Howard's greatest work.

Bleak, austere and insanely addictive - this is pure musical genius.

Great music by a great composer. The atmospheres created are superlative (whether you have seen the movie or not). The only negative aspect regards the packaging of the delivered item, i.e. I am used to buying CDs with their original cellophane wrapping. This one did not have it and the plastic jewel box looked like it had been kicked around a parking lot before reaching my hands. However, to be honest, he CD inside the jewel box was in perfect condition. Of course I can just substitute the jewel box with a new one....but I don't get them for free, while I paid the product the full price of a brand new one (which would have had the original cellophane wrapping)....It's the details that make the difference.

Hearing this soundtrack without the movie is weird, I can quite happily sit and listen to Star Wars, Water world and many others and feel fine, this one, is strange, it's very good, but Hans Zimmer's Gladiator soundtrack is top over this, James Newton Howard with Water world and his Disney soundtracks are much more an easy listen, this is worth buying.Waterworld - Original Soundtrack

Having watched the Dark Knight and really enjoyed it I thought I'd buy the soundtrack. The tracks on the disks are excellent and there's some very distinctive music included. The only drawback is that like so many film soundtracks, certain tracks / music is missing. I understand there has now been an extended version released which includes all of the songs omitted in this version.

Nontheless a very good buy.
