The full soundtrack for The Dark Knight Rises is now streaming online.  We previously posted 30-second clips from each track, but now you can listen to the every song in its entirety.  After listening to the first few tracks, I like what I’m hearing.  The aggressive blaring horns from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight have been replaced with aggressive percussion that sounds almost tribal.  Also, if you’d like to hear the track that was used in this trailer, it’s “Gotham’s Reckoning”.  It’s worth pointing out that while Hans Zimmer previously teamed with James Newton Howard on the previous two Batman films, this score is Zimmer going solo.

Hit the jump to listen to the soundtrack, which will be available to buy and download on July 16th.  The film stars Christian Bale, Tom HardyAnne HathawayGary OldmanMorgan Freeman, Michael CaineMarion Cotillard, and Joseph Gordon-LevittThe Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th. [NOTE: The track titles don’t have a explicit spoilers like “Death of Qui-Gon” or anything like that.]

Here’s the official synopsis for The Dark Knight Rises:

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.
