Begins has a homogeneous blend of Zimmer and James Newton Howard's material that the other two do not have. In Knight the dominance began to shift more to Zimmer and in Rises Howard is absent altogether (though some his themes do remain). That was kind of shame to me since I prefer Howard as a composer but what we got fits the movies like a glove and a lot of it works as a standalone listen as well. What's interesting about Rises is that instead of the quieter moments being covered by another composer Zimmer handles the entire score himself, both the emotional and action material. This gives it somewhat of a different feel despite being very reminiscent.

Life was such a wheel that no
man could stand upon it for long.
And it always, at the end, came
round to the same place again.
