There’s little breathing room on Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard’s brilliantly conceived soundtrack for The Dark Knight. Just like Heath Ledger’s totally psycho portrayal of The Joker, almost every track is heavy, dense and claustrophobic. Zimmer is a sucker for industrial music and dark electronics, both of which creep their way into “Agent of Chaos” and the violently rhythmic “Why So Serious?” Even the reflective orchestral offerings are smeared in grim textures and dystopian murk. Definitely file under “uneasy listening”.
Simply the Best Soundtrack of All Time
I had been waiting to get my hands on the 2CD special edition for a while now, but this soundtrack is just simply fantastic. Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard have created another masterpiece with some of the finest action, dark, sad and most beautiful music you will ever hear. I cannot recommend this more highly. Bring on the third Film.
The dark knight rises above everything!
Quite simply utterly epic! The greatest score ever composed with grandeur and power and emotion on every track
This has to be one of my all time favourite films and at 43 yrs old there is some serious competition out there. The soundtrack is superb and I every time I listen to it I can't help but find myself moving to the beat, very stirring! Simple recommendation.....buy it you won't regret it.....!
