Product Description


It's rare to see two marquee-name composers credited for a score, but perhaps two people were needed to come up with something that would stand up to the memory of Danny Elfman's work on 1989's Batman. Just as director Christopher Nolan's back-in-black approach is quite different from Tim Burton's phantasmagorical one, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's take doesn't bear much kinship to Elfman's. (You'd be hard-pressed to find any recognizable theme here, for instance.) Mostly the composers remain conservatively subtle, though coming up with the expected pounding on grandiose, action-movie worthy selections such as "Myotis" and "Antrozous" (no, the poetic-sounding track names aren't lifted from old Cocteau Twins records, but refer to various types of bats). Standout track "Tadarida" incorporates some of the distorted vocal effects associated with the Scarecrow's drug-induced nightmarish visions. Atmospheric to the point of evanescence sometimes, the individual tracks tend to meld into each other after a while. The sense of stylistic continuity helps establish an overall mood, but it's often hard to distinguish between shades of black. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

So excited when I finally listen after all the complications to have it. I was not disappointed after listen again and again because of one thing. The two sequels doesn't have a music like this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack, too bad it has been delisted July 2 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is where the reboot for Batman started. The use of these two fantastic composers is exceptional. Teaming James Newton Howard with Hans Zimmer is genius. The themes are evocative and appropriate to the characters and environments that Chris Nolan have created for us. These themes are built upon and extended in The Dark Knight.

It is too bad that this CD has been delisted in Canada hence why this reviewer had to purchase from a US retailer through Amazon. I can only guess that perhaps they are going to repackage it or refactor it for a set but who knows.

I recommend this to any fan of movie soundtracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars BAT-TASTIC! Oct. 11 2009
Format:Audio CD
Some say this work is flat and unmemorable when compared to Danny Elfman's classic BATMAN music, but they couldn't be more wrong; the masterstroke of this BATMAN score was the decision to emulate the sound of bat wings, an ingenious approach that instantly established a unique mood and feel for director Christopher Nolan's take on the Caped Crusader.
