3.0 out of 5 stars A place where the sun never shines..., 2 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Batman Begins (Audio CD)
Imagine the Himalayas, their size and scale, but then imagine them if the sun never shone there.
Bleak, grey, empty of emotion and beauty. Like being trapped in a grey fog. Permanently.
We're looking for a hint of warmth, a mere glimpse of some pleasantness, but no, the relentless darkness pervades all. There is no hope, no redemption.
It's bleakness ultimately claims the day.

So you give it a three star review?

I wonder if you've ever heard of Batman? The Dark Knight? The child who saw his parents gunned down in Gotham and set his life to fighting crime irrespective of the cost to him? I wonder if you've seen the film that this soundtrack is featured in? Where the city is laid siege to by the escaped inmates of an asylum for the criminally insane? Where his only reward is the destruction of his family home - he only thing he has left after his parent's murder?

Yes it's grim and gritty, bleak if you want. Exactly as it should be.

I don't have a problem with what you say, but I don't relate the music to a film. It's a stand alone. What I'm looking for is fantastic music. I like the Hans Zimmer sound, and so I have to go on what people recommend. Unfortunately, this time there was nothing to inspire me, and I call it as I see it.
Going into battle in 'The thin red line' is also not a pleasant experience, however the piece of music that accompanies it is astonishingly powerful.
Films have some beautiful music in, they are a great source of powerful music. But when I listen to OST's, it's only the music that I'm taking in. The context is irrelevant. It's the music that's important. Sorry that you didn't like what I posted. I just aim to show people how I found the experience, so that they can take it onboard before considering a purchase.
