This particular CD is a collection of hilights from all three scores, performed by one of the many small-time recording orchestras popping up these days. London Music Works is one of the rare orchestras that actually puts effort and passion into their interpretations - and make no mistake, these are intrepretations. While, at timees it may feel like you are listening to the original scores, subtle nuances in tempo, instrumentation, and dynamics provide the listener with a wholely unique approach to these songs. Contributions by the equally talented City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra accentuate this album. For me, the hilights of this particular album were "Why So Serious?" (which allows you to hear what a normal orchestra could do with this rather than Zimmer's electronically-enhanced orchestra), "A Watchful Guardian" (which is a track that does not appear on the original "Dark Knight" soundtrack but rather on the 2-disc special edition, making it a unique choice), and "Imagine The Fire" and "Rise" (both of which have obvious differences from their original versions, making them unique approaches to these songs).
Several other reviewers are asking why you would buy this album when the original soundtracks are so readily available.Read more ›
Good idea: make a single CD with the music of the trilogy.
Bad Idea: not using the original recordings.
If you think about it, you can make your own compilation buying every single Mp3 from the original albums...
Don't be mistaken, this is NOT one of those cheap, tinny sounding synth recordings, this is a top notch compilation.
A great sounding CD, highly recommended.

Would love to purchase the original Batman Trilogy soundtracks directly from movies (I have all three separately) but this is a nice fill in and isn't made cheap.Published on July 13, 2013 by SIRBOBBY
I'd love to have purchased all three soundtracks, but chose this for budgetary reasons and I'm not disappointed. I like the song choices and I love the music.Published on February 6, 2013 by HB
