iTunes Editors' Notes
Director Christopher Nolan claims one of the chief reasons he’s continued his association with the reborn Batman franchise was the dank, emotionally brooding musical tapestry that Hans Zimmer conjured for 2005’s Batman Begins. In keeping with the elevated ambitions and even longer thematic shadows of this muscular sequel, the composer — this time in collaboration with mulitple Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (and an assist from Zimmer protege Lorne Balfe) — ups the superhero soundtrack stakes accordingly with another bleak, modernistic soundscape that distances itself even more aggressively from Danny Elfman’s previous orchestral heroics. Skillfully utilizing the seamless fusion of the synthetic and organic that’s become Zimmer’s hallmark, the score’s textures and moods snake eerily from electronic sound washes reminiscent of Tangerine Dream to nervously pulsing minimalist rhythms and more traditional symphonic brass flourishes. It’s a soundtrack that largely eschews familiar themes and motifs for ominous, challenging mood pieces, nigh perfect sonic embroidery for the year’s darkest box office contender.
Good...But not Enough
It is a very nice album.But only few songs are for Batmania :).So take you're favorite songs and then make cd that everybody will listen.In the otherside,(opera listeners), it is a very good album if they like batman
This album is great!!!! I love the last one so much!!!!! I hear it so many times and sometimes it makes my cry! Sometimes I can remember the words from the movie with this music.
