Loaded with high energy and high tension, the follow-up to the 2005 blockbuster BATMAN BEGINS is sure to thrill even the skeptics. Once again the music is handled by the dynamic duo of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard. Each composer's individual skill selects one aspect of the dark duality of the Batman character; Zimmer's action-savvy boisterousness is mostly tempered by Howard's brooding, introverted theming. Add to this the sinister scoring for the Joker's chaotic character, and an explosive, nail-biting score begins to emerge.
Collaborating on their second Batman soundtrack, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard up the ante from Batman Begins. By building on the themes they established in the first film, while introducing a number of new ones (most effectively, the Joker's theme, as heard in the epic opening track "Why So Serious?"), the pair offer up a subtle and nuanced album that eschews the brassy extravagance of the 80s/90s Batman soundtracks in favour of a dark, brooding and emotional score which perfectly fits Christopher Nolan's atmospheric interpretation of the Caped Crusader.
