I don't know. I still got more unnerved feelings of just watching Heath Ledger on screen while Zimmer's "subconscious effect" as you call it went completely undetected by me. I'm sure there are people who felt it added something to the film, but its effect was completely lost to me when stacked against what I was actually seeing, namely the cinematography and acting. I still feel the score added nothing to the The Dark Knight than what was already accomplished by other mediums.

But I am intrigued about Inception's in film experience since so many critics have mentioned it. Not that I'd want to own the score on CD I believe, but I still would like to check out the score's cumulative effect in context.
