Hold the phone, are they in FLAC format or FLAC quality? Because my versions of the suites are MP3 but only 128 kbps. Pretty subpar quality compared to all the other songs, and I'd love to have a 320 or FLAC version of the Bane suite. The last 8 minutes are better than the released version on The Fire Rises, because there's some awesome violin work behind the taking-over-the-city montage music that was in the movie but isn't on the real soundtrack.
As for Despair, I know it's all played during the ice-walking scene, but I'm talking about the first bit...the panicked violins with the bat wings beating in the background. It was the most distinctive part of the song and it gets cut out of the film.
This is still my favorite of the trilogy, but Nolan and Zimmer have made me question their motives a few times. I read the shooting script for TDKR and while the stuff that Nolan cut out was mostly superfluous, some of the lines and interactions that he cut out flesh out the movie a lot better.
As for Zimmer, he doesn't release the Nokia music, he doesn't use some of the best, most fresh parts of the soundtrack in the actual film, etc.
I finally found out why James Newton Howard wasn't here. It's because, in his words, Zimmer and Nolan left him out of working on the Inception soundtrack, so he felt like he would be a third wheel getting in the way while composing The Dark Knight Rises.
Come on, JNH. Come on.
