I was expecting this...

Days before the release of the album I was able to listen the soundtrack (in bad quality) and after the first listen I knew that this will never satisfie Clemensen and the rest of the people. I agree in some ways, but. The track "Like a Dog Chasing Cars" is something I really liked. Ahhh... that is Batman. YES! I was very happy, and thats it, no more. Thats the low point. No great Batman feeling any more. What I really didn't liked about The Dark Knight and previously on POTC 2, that Zimemr knew the reviews for the previous score and what he did? Almost nothing new improvement. Honsetly POTC 2 is the worst Zimmer album in my collection.

As for other tracks like "Why So Serious", which I like too, kind of reflects Joker, Howard also commented that he is really envy for not creating such a good theme. I also like the Harvey Dent theme, I can fell the Howard thing in that track.

Overall, I was disapointed, Batman Begins was a suprise for me, not to mention that Zimemr is the one who did a Batman score with Howard. I gaved it **** stars back than. Now, the album shows very little improvement, *** and barely raches it. In the past years as a Zimmer fan I barely gave **** or ***** stars to a Zimmer album (King Arthur, Batman begins, The Da Vinci Code, POTC 3).
