QFT!!! A Complete (or at least expanded) version of Sherlock Holmes is kinda my holy grail right now... I would LOVE to have that score!

T-Mann036
04-09-2011, 07:16 AM
OK, Takehiro-san... Now that I've listened to the 2-disc recording sessions of The Dark Knight, here's my verdict. Each and every track stays true to the original full-length motion picture. Not only the dynamic duo of Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard had done an EPIC job composing the film, but I want to tip my hat off to you for making it happen. On my 1 to 10 scale, I give it a FIFTY!!!!!!!

Until the temperature stays above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, keep up the most outstanding work!!!!!!!!

PS: Do you have FLAC or 320 kbps?

I'll second that with FLAC. While MP3 VBR is good, I still prefer lossless. I know that most people can't hear the difference but I do notice and it would be nice to hear this in the best quality possible. If that's not possible, MP3 is fine.

It actually has dynamic range unlike the commercial album!

It's not clipped to hell unlike the commercial album!

It's not edited into a mess of suites unlike the commercial album!

It's the real deal unlike much of the commercial album!

Wow.

Seriously, this is amazing. It's the only Hans Zimmer-involved score (outside The Simpsons Movie) I genuinely like, even love. Thank you.

Bioscope
04-10-2011, 09:03 PM
bcmiami, I extracted some of the unreleased tracks, but lossy 160k, and not all of them. My comp is still incomplete. I think the user in question was Samurai. Does anybody know him? He should have the real deal.

KaFaraqGatri
04-10-2011, 09:12 PM
I would take this in lossy over not having it at all, but if Samurai has it in FLAC... Happy Days!

TRIFORCE89
04-10-2011, 09:36 PM
Wow. Awesome.

Is it 100% complete? Should I hold on to "concert suites" from the official release (Harvey Two-Face, Why So Serious?, A Dark Knight)? Are those legitimate suites or just cut-and-paste medleys with their material already covered in these recording sessions?

KaFaraqGatri
04-10-2011, 09:37 PM
Its 100% complete. The suites on the OST contain some unused/alternate versions (more or less instrumentation) but theres also a bit of overlap (The Ferries part for one).

T-Mann036
04-10-2011, 09:39 PM
From my opinionated perspective, this complete recording sessions are THE REAL DEAL!!!!!! 100% of the film scores are in two discs.

JHFan
04-10-2011, 09:53 PM
Zimmer should've released this instead of that overprocessed, compressed, clipped mess of two albums. This is just so much better, and it's an easier-on-the-ears listen.

Bioscope
04-10-2011, 11:51 PM
Guys, I think there is some confusion here. My comments donot refer to DARK KNIGHT REC sessions, so ignore what I wrote, Takehiro's post is The Holy Grail. Go to Hans-Zimmer.com to find out more regarding The Bruckheimer Submarine Movie Complete Score (Read the Comments section under Hans' Discography)

Is there some reason that CT isn't being referred to by name? Almost feels like referring 'he who must not be named' :)

Bioscope
04-11-2011, 06:39 AM
It just seems that the way the unreleased tracks were leaked, that it should have been out by now. Imeem of all places (when Imeem still existed), by a user whose name sounds a lot like Takehiro, but I might be mistaken. He also went by the name of Samurai and had a huge scores playlist and i came upon CT OST with additional tracks. The names were even more vague than Zimmer chose for the commercial tracks.

Here is the original leak tracklist:

DISC ONE:
1. RUSSIAN CIVIL WAR
2. MUTINY
3. ALABAMA
4. LITTLE DUCKS
5. DEFCON
6. THE ENEMY IS WAR
7. RANGE AND SPEED
8. ZULU TIME
9. AUTHENTICATION
10. ALABAMA

DISC TWO:
1. ZERO BUBBLE
2. 1SQ
3. THE ARMORY
4. TORPEDOS
5. PEARL HARBOR
6. ROLL TIDE

Mine is not as complete, as I did not grab the film edits of ALABAMA and MUTINY. I relied on my commercial cd for those. Someone else already has a better version for this tracklist to exist. Flush him out:-)

Otherwise I will have to make a plan in the near future....

I dont think this is complete, the film has many more cues than that. For example, no boxing montage is included by the look of it, or the cool Hunter Killer track.

That's not your browser, that's the site detecting your IP adress - either someone else is using your connection and downloading from megaupload (and downloading a LOT as ive downloaded several files from megaupload one after another immediately, gigabytes worth before i got that message), or your ISP is splitting your IP between you and most likely several other people.
You'll probably get the same probelm with loads of other sites, oron, rapidshare, filesonic, most likely will tell you if you try to download from them that you either have exceeded the maximum for the day or will tell you that you already currently are downloading from them.

You could try using a proxy site, or try reseting your modem so your ISP refreshes your ISP (if you don't have a permenant IP), depends on who your ISP is and how you are connected through them, for a cable connection (always on) try switching off (at the mains switch) your modem for 10 mins, then restart it, that may do the trick.

So then, Takehiro... where did one quire such music and might you know the existence of a sherlock holmes or inception expanded?!

Comparing both tracklists, my guess is, he stole it from another board, where that item should have been exclusive and then leaked it here. A FLAC version is unlikely, only this VBR-version is available for now.

Let me start by saying I was VERY skeptical that this was real, but I just got done listening to it and WOW....if it isn't real, my ears are fooled.

That's just it - he didn't need to do anything to it because that's how the original recording sounds. Unfortunately when they were assembling the albums they decided to compress all the range in this music and clip the hell out of it.

I suppose it's possible that toes were stepped on because there ARE plans to eventually release this complete (and chronological) score someday... maybe after TDK Rises all 3 will get the treatment. Maybe they HAVE been seeing the demand for it?

NEVER going to happen, and personally, for me, it's too late, i was one of the people who not only bought the original batman befins and dark knight scores, then pre-ordered the 2cd version of TDK only to find it included the first cd, and then a half assed cash in second cd which really added about as much enjoyment to listening to the score as having a route canal.
If they did release it to buy now, i wouldnt buy it as ive had it with them releasing a 'compilation' cd only for an extended or full version to be released. I have all 3 of John Powell's Bourne movie scores bought, but they never get used as whenever im listening to them, i listen to the extended or 2cd versions of them as they are more complete. No matter that in order to get these complete versions i had to illegally download them.

Assholes, all of them, record studio executives are now a step up the ladder ABOVE lawyers, at least lawyers are open about it when they are gonna screw you over for everything you've got and give you back f**k all in return. I suppose the best word would be... Scum.

The composers should have ownership rights on music they have created that is NOT included on a CD release, and the studio should have a limited time to option wether or not they will include said tracks on an official cd release, that way when everyone's bought it who is going to buy it, they can release the remaining tracks for free. That's how they should do it, they would sell the cd's containing the tracks they have chosen, and if fans want the rest, the fans should get them.

Sorry to rant, but im tired, and this is a subject that REALLY pisses me off, very, VERY easily.

No need to be sorry, I was sincerely asking, that's all :) A bad thing about the forums is that sometimes messages and their tones get misinterpreted.

As an interesting side note, these recording sessions went up on the paradox last night....
Actually, on another side note, I can't see why these are called "Recording Sessions". Either I don't get the term (which seems pretty B&W) or it's being used very broadly. This set consists of the film mix/edit of the score. Yes, the "session recordings" were used, but it is clear as day that this is post mix. There are edits everywhere and totally different sound mixes on some cues. Plus some cues volume levels are completely off the hook! When I think of "recording sessions" I think of "as it was recorded" basically.

That having been said, I am not complaining... to have this is WONDERFUL and I still thank Takehiro very much. Between this and the OST's, I will be making one hell-of-an awesome complete score edition for TDK!

I'm really curious how you guys succeed in understanding the whole score in order to know wich cue is wich and how it was scored. I mean particularly for this one.

I use my ears! Music is my passion. Also, using headphones while watching the film really helps me to analyze the score better. Then I use my very expensive recording/editing/mixing equipment... simply put. It's a process, but also a labor of love :)

Agreed, i've heard plenty of 'recording session' releases, but only a handful of them i would consider living up to this title, the others are all more or less just a complete movie score as they have the entire score edited from the sessions but nothing else. One of the best genuine recording sessions i have heard was Jerry Goldsmith's score to Executive Decision, it has re-takes, alternate takes, and even a retake of the last 30 seconds of a 5 minute track, where they had a perfect take but the ending screwed up, so they re-did the last 30 seconds, and it must have been edited together for the proper track. Strange but very enlightening.




I'm really curious how you guys succeed in understanding the whole score in order to know wich cue is wich and how it was scored. I mean particularly for this one.

I had this conversation with a friend recently, he was amazed when he came over to my place and i had the score to die hard playing, and he couldnt place it but recognised it. I even went through as the music was playing saying the lines in the movie to convince him, and eventually he got it.

Personally i have a better memory for sounds than i do for images, so whenever i see something if it makes an impression i can remember the sound of it in great detail (down to inflections in a person's voice - something that having alternate takes in a trailer and the final movie sometimes is annoying - for an example of this look at alien resurrection, Ripley's line 'I died' is said differently in the trailer than in the film, it puts a different spin on how she views her death, sadly i preferred the trailer version).

It also is annoying when they have an alternate piece of music in a movie than is on the released score. When i go to a cinema and watch a movie, i'm always aware of the music in the scene, whereas some people are oblivious to it, in hindsite they don't even realise it's there if it's underscoring a scene, it plays to them subconsciously and has an emotional effect that they didnt realise.

I listened closely to this set and realized that a batch normalise might have been done, as some intimate tracks sound very harsh and therefor clash with the action cues in their fullness. All it took was some evaluation and renormalising to 50% or even 30% for a more even flow of ambience-suspense-action.

I'm sure a lot happens between leaving the recording studio and to carrier format (eg: cd). There is the mixdown from multiple channels and a high frequency to general redbook etc for one. It adds to the fun to do one's own 'final mix' of the set. That said, I still think this is one of the best catches ever to hit the streets.

Arial
04-14-2011, 12:44 PM
ahdvd,

I'm not asking how you can tell the difference, I' m asking how you figure out how it was scored and recorded in the first place... Added to that indeed the whole score here sounds full of alternate ambiances.

Even with the complete cue list it may look like a puzzling affair, no ?

jmn77
04-14-2011, 03:02 PM

No.

I had the entire TDK score figured out cue for cue, long before this "Recording Session" release. Rather I should say I had the 2 Disc OST figured out... which cues went where from the suites Zimmer created and such.

I don't have much to say other than this is vastly superior in every way to those commercial albums, both in range, editing and overall quality.

I haven't heard anything in the way of normalization going on, so if there is some it's so subtle compared to the mess of the commercial albums.

Also, while THIS score may not see another release simply because there have been two already, don't count it out completely and definitely don't count out Begins. I say that because LLL is committed to releasing ALL the Batman music they can, and there is only one album they cannot release in an expanded form: "Batman and Robin" by Elliot Goldenthal. The reason for that is because that film never had a score album release and they are only allowed to release expanded versions of Batman albums released before, so both Begins and this score do qualify.

IMO, the LP rip (even converted to 16bit) of the Dark Knight album posted on this forum a few while ago is far superior to anything I've heard for this score. It hasn't the CD version mastering at all.

And I'm fine with their selection, more musicaly oriented.

I didn't want too much to listen to anything today, so this silent music was the ideal to let me concentrate on my work.

I almost didn't notice CD1, until the last track wich wakes you up... but after a bunch of tracks on CD2 I became really entertained and all that I heard for a long while until the end really blown the original album selection away. Wow ! THAT was a listening experience !!!

... So, is it just me or am I right thinking the CD2 and mostly the 2nd part of it makes let's say 80% of the score ?

I'd probably be best described as the exact opposite of a Zimmer fan, but for whatever reason (subject matter probably playing a big factor here) I LOVE these Batman scores he and James Newton Howard have done. The well-known Zimmer "action movie" sound which has made him so famous, is something I've never enjoyed at all, except in these two Batman scores.

How about "Complete Score (Film Mix)"?? Anyway, yeah my ears say Film Mix, not "recording sessions". All edits are in place and could not have possibly been recorded live like that. Plus a few cues ("Who Appointed Batman?" for example) are of inferior quality and at an impossible volume (compared to the bulk of the cues) or some are at a really low volume ("Wired")... all of this combined confirming (for me) they are not "Recording Sessions".

Some people claim the number is 5, but 6 is the lowest figure I've actually seen myself where the facility is enabled.
It may be 5, but I've not actually seen evidence of that; part of the problem is the time-delay after the count qualification is reached. The delay occurs whilst waiting for a software routine to run on the forum database.

How about "Complete Score (Film Mix)"?? Anyway, yeah my ears say Film Mix, not "recording sessions". All edits are in place and could not have possibly been recorded live like that. Plus a few cues ("Who Appointed Batman?" for example) are of inferior quality and at an impossible volume (compared to the bulk of the cues) or some are at a really low volume ("Wired")... all of this combined confirming (for me) they are not "Recording Sessions".

Agree with all. What about "Final Studio mix - Complete film score"? Sounds good to me. It seems as precise as what we know about it... Not too, neither too much... Something tells me a definitive film mix would have sounded with some clarity enhancement, wich doesn't seem to be the case here.

I pm'ed a person a day or so ago when he only had 5. He hit 5, and about an hour later, I was able to contact him. :D

Ok, Jessie says these are able to be posted, as far as the Shrine is concerned, so now my only thing is to talk about it privately with Tak. I do know they are posted on Paradox, and I posted them on a private blog, so my only question now is can I have permission to post here?

Wow, now that I see it here, the colors are not that good. It's a fucked up source image anyway, but best image ever. I think I will come back to the previous way... :(

Can't say I agree there:

"Storming Pruitt Building" had some obvious edits in the film that were not present on this cue heard here, specifically the Joker 'sting' which was repeated in the film so it played twice, but not here - here it's just as it was on the actual album, playing only once.

Also "I'm Not a Hero" has an actual ending that doesn't just cut to the loud pounding percussion heard in "A Dark Knight".

I'm also thinking of a cue from "Avatar", where there was a film-edit version recorded in addition to an album version recorded. It was the cue "Climbing up Ikinimaya". The music was edited prior to recording to shorten it and that could easily have been the case here with TDK.

There are basically some subtle hints like that which make it clear it was more a case of being recorded that way versus any post-editing done to the music.

Possibly "Complete Motion Picture Score" then underneath have "Film Mix". As that is what it truly is.

No that would look weird and smacks of fan made talk.

Stick to Complete Motion Picture Score, Arial!

I think the issue of the servers updating (and allowring people to send PM's once reaching 5 posts) may be linked to the amazon server attacks by those damned wikileaks supporters!

Me too, I like it... NICE cover art too.

True, so maybe they aren't the definitive, final film mix... but you'd be hard pressed to find many other differences aside from a fair amount of these cues cross-fading in the actual film.


Also "I'm Not a Hero" has an actual ending that doesn't just cut to the loud pounding percussion heard in "A Dark Knight".

I'm not talking about that kind of editing. Going back to your example, "Storming the Pruitt Building" you can clearly hear post-recording edits... one edit in particular that isn't even rhythmically accurate, let alone phrased like it should be. In other words, a bad and choppy edit. There are many such examples of obvious post-recording edits... Check out "We Got 'Cha". The cut between the Jokers music and the fuller orchestra section isn't impossible to pull off live, but doubtful.

Good call, it does give it a more "bootleg"/"fan-made" vibe. I hadn't really thought of that!

Tak, you can grab this one wich is final, 300px/inch. It's not that "professional" in the end: I just took the credits from the LP scans (huge file though). Far enough. Don't know yet if I make big changes on the back or not.

Ok. That's why I posted several tries: to hear any one speak his mind out. The least detail can be a headache to decide sometimes. But the vertical line is to help you know where to fold the cover as it's all black here (and I always give a light cutter strike on it to fold it straight as I use strong paper)... I faded it now but it's still there.

Image updated.

The one cue that really seems to have undergone revisions - pre or post - is "Always a Catch" which is all over the place with the string rhythms not being consistent but matching the on-screen action perfectly.

Hey it's not only easier to not have to type out all those individual credits, but if the image is there and the resolution is certainly there, make use of it! Think of it as just one of the images themselves rather than thinking of it as cutting some corner to not type stuff out - it's all great. :)

No way I'm printing it though, last time I tried to print a black cover it was, well, messy. :D

Hey Tak, thx again for the music, I couldn't help but get inspired with a little artwork after listening to the music. If anyone is interested in using it feel free, wanted to contribute some how.

Very nice creation shrinerr. A little less rough cropping and something with the typos would make it really great. ;-)

You know what, I'm glad to hear that: I knew the credits where easily foundable online (Zimmer fans site if I remember) but I love the LP arts and was delighted to use them instead ! Haha.

thx arial, yeah I tried it a few ways smaller to not have it go to the edge but at that size it allowed for batman to be a little more prominent which I felt meant more than having it not go to the edge. Also I'm not sure if I had a typo or not, but clarify so I can change it need be.

OK JHFan, Take what I was saying about "Storming The Pruitt Building" and apply it to "Always a Catch"! Because I just realized, after reading your reply, that that was the track I was talking about anyway, not STPB... I was getting the track titles mixed up! :D So now, I understand a lot clearer what you were saying about STPB, and now I realize that you hear what I was talking about in AaC, except I was calling it by the wrong title, D'OH!

For those of you making covers!

It depends on individual anality of course, but I just noticed that, according to TDK dvd chapters, the name of the building being stormed by Batman and the SWAT is spelled Prewitt, not Pruitt (as in Pruitt Igoe). Just thought I'd mention it.

And I omitted to post these versions of the backcover too as I thought it would be in Takehiro's final set as we dealed with these arts by pm.
