Sorry but while I agree Dark Knight score is by no means a masterpiece, it's certainly not a 2 star score, that is, if Christian thinks Hancock score is 3 stars. I own both scores, listened to them more than once and I can't seem to find any really interesting track on Hancock which I'll wanna listen later on in a few months or years. It's totally a filler score with no significant new material, it's a rehash of old Powell, exactly like Zimmer and Dark Knight. But at least there are some nice action underscore on Dark Knight, which I already listened to like 200 times and still like to listen. If Hancock score is worth 3 stars, how the hell is Dark Knight score worth less? I mostly agree with Christian's reviews and yes I accept that Zimmer has been doing nothing new lately but the reviews have not been consistent with each other. If he's blaming Dark Knight to be a total rehash of old scores, and gives it a 2 star because of that, Hancock is the same formula and it's even less interesting when you listen to it. Imho Dark Knight is a 3 star score, that is comparing to other 3 star scores here. I mean check the other 2 star scores listed here, most of them have absolutely no decent tracks to listen to. Dark Knight is no such score. There are definitely couple tracks which are fun and engaging.
