It seems that many of you (perhaps Christian as well) have listened to the soundtrack all the way through only once, maybe not even in its entirety. While certainly not the best score I know, I've listened to it several times now, and am beginning to appreciate some of the thematic elements. Yes, many of the cues and motifs are very much inspired by previous Zimmer work, but it works. My interpretation of the music cannot be complete without seeing the film and neither can anyone elseís. Furthermore, the J.N. Howard stuff is nothing short of brilliant, Harvey Two-Face being one of the best pieces Iíve heard all year. Perhaps Howard will wise up and take the helm for the final installment solo (unlikely as that may be, I can dream).
