Ah, the good old "you'd like it as much as I do if you listened to it more carefully" argument.

I listened to the score repeatedly over three days while I did my background research on it and the film. As per usual, I took notation about every track and motif usage. That's how you prepare for a 3000+ word review. And, unfortunately for you, the work did not impress me any more on the last listen. Sorry.


> Two stars? Really?

Yes.


> For it to be dismissed as a bunch of recycled crap really steams my broccoli.

Then you need to go back and listen to Zimmer's previous work, as you say, "more than once."


> A Dark Knight is perhaps the most epic journey I have ever listened to on a film score.

I would fathom that your film music collection, then, is slim.


> For those people who take the time and effort, it will be a masterpiece.

You could say the same about sex, but sometimes you're still romping with a hideously unattractive and uncoordinated mate. Time and effort, in both cases, won't improve the experience.
