Is it better, as a movie, than The Prestige? I loved that movie.
I think so, though others here may disagree. Inception is an epic film, bigger in every way than The Prestige and contains better performances. It does have some flaws, some say the character development is thin to non-existent but it's worth seeing for the spectacle of it and its sweeping soundtrack.

How did they make the music for Inception??
I don't know how Zimmer made it, but I remember reading that he was influenced by dreams and wanted to take a different approach to composing for Inception. He wanted to be given only an outline rather than specific details, relying on instinct and intuition. Strangely when he met with Nolan to work on it, it turned out that many of his ideas fitted with Nolan's for the themes of the film. I can't vouch for how accurate that is; I read it a while ago and can't remember the source.
Zimmer based it around the Édith Piaf song: “Non, je ne Regrette Rien”. http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/20...ception-score/
He also collaborated with Johnny Marr which I think is extra cool, Marr is a wonderful guitarist.
