The album has a sequential tracklist mentioned on the back cover, the best image of which I could find (with a bit of cropping) is below:
The following image is an official image of one side of the inner sleeve with the record itself visible:
The other side of the sleeve contains an image of Bane from the film. If you watch the below video of The Dark Knight Rises Vinyl Soundtrack being unboxed by Midnight Reviews, you’ll get to see that pretty clearly, though bizarrely you’ll have to hear Alan Silvestri’s music from Back To The Future while you watch:
Interestingly, for this score Hans Zimmer crowd sourced thousands of voices to participate in recording a chant:
“The chant became a very complicated thing because I wanted hundreds of thousands of voices, and it’s not so easy to get hundreds of thousands of voices,” Zimmer confirmed. “So, we Twittered and we posted on the internet, for people who wanted to be part of it. It seemed like an interesting thing.”
It was a raging success. Thousands of people from over 100 countries submitted recordings of themselves chanting the words provided by Zimmer.
This album is by far the most sought after release of The Dark Knight Rises soundtrack by true audiophiles. Since it is produced with 180 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl, this is a high quality vinyl release (standard vinyl records have 100-120 grams maximum) that, as a limited edition, is sure to become a great Dark Knight Rises and soundtrack collectible.
