If you are reading this, you are probably already aware of the brilliance of the Zimmer/Newton Howard scores for the Dark Knight Trilogy. Each one presents a beautiful score, evoking images and favorite scenes from the films while providing inspiration to even the most amateur musicians and composers. Too many of Hollywood's film scores in the last decade owe their existance to these works. But you probably already knew that, so let's move on.

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.

From the samples it's clear the reinterprations do justice to the original recordings, but... really? Would you buy a greatest hits album of your favorite artist formed only by covers (unless you own his o her entire discography)? And before you think the analogy does not apply, remember: this is not classical music, there's an actual ORIGINAL version for every composition.
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...

Han Zimmer is by far the best (I think) film composer in the 20th and 21st Century. His film scores are awesome, full of melody, power and emotion. His music moves peoples' hearts. He is the best we have.

Knowing that Hans Zimer wrote the music for these three movies was my main reason for seeing them. I have the soundtracks for all three, but this is a new take on the music with slightly different orchestrations. If you like zimmer, you will like this cd.

Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, (cannot forget him), put together one of the best Trilogy Scores ever! Not only does the music embody the characters and their dark origins, it also illustrates their pain, struggles, and triumphs. Every note is a piece of the story and this compilation of all three movies is a great tribute to the Dark Knight Trilogy. The City of Prague Philharmonic always does itself proud. I highly recommend this to anyone who loved the Dark Knight.

A mixture of synth and orchestral recordings, this is a very satisfying selection of music from the 3 Dark Knight films. Keep in mind, Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard's original scores were also a mixture of electronics and orchestra, so these re-recordings capture the sound and feel of those dark soundscapes.

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.
