O.S.T. Batman Forever (1995 US 14-track soundtrack CD album includes Hold Me Kiss Me Kiss Me by U2 plus tracks by PJ Harvey Nick Cave The Flaming Lips and The Offspring picture sleeve)
Sweeping irresistibly forward like some dream hybrid of Ziggy Stardust, Kashmir-era Zeppelin and German techno, U2's massive "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" launches this disc. Also included are tracks by Brandy (the Lenny Kravitz-produced "Where Are You Now?"), Seal ("Kiss from a Rose"), Eddi Reader ("Nobody Lives Without Love"), and The Devlins ("Crossing the River"). Michael Hutchence butchers Iggy Pop's "The Passenger," but The Offspring mines big fun from The Damned's "Smash It Up." --Jeff Bateman

however, after the first spin... god it's just so incredible that i can't believe that this is actually a soundtrack! like, how many soundtracks out there that is at least *half* decent? most of them have 1 or 2 songs that is listenable and the others are just (bad) fillers. not so with this one, baby.
the sound and theme of this soundtrack is very eery and shadowy... i'd say the songs really reflects the movie's atmosphere... of the industrial presence... the alleyways... and the perpetual sombre of gotham. not to say that this cd is very dark... on the contrary, the music seems to capture the movie's essence and that is incredible in itself.
although i bought this soundtrack on the strengh of the 2 songs i mentioned earlier, i soon found that the song "the hunter get captured by the game" by massive attack feat. tracey thorn is simply *superb* and the sheer power of the song is unbelievable. also i count nick cave's and the late michael hutchence's ("there is a light" and "the passenger") efforts as among the best this soundtrack have to offer. others worth mentioning are the devlin, pj harvey and sunny day real estate whom all left quite an impression on me.
all i can say is that this soundtrack is really, really amazing. i've had it since it first came out and until this day, it remains one of the most played cd i own. need i say anything more?
Yes the movie was tedious but this soundtrack is fantastic!! An eclectic mix of moods and genres and with a lot of depth in terms of song quality, this CD is a fascinating listen.
U2's Hold Me... kickstarts this album and is one of the most memorable songs from the Irish Rockers in a long time. Brandy (with Lenny Kravitz) and PJ Harvey come up with some great music on tracks 3 and 2 respectively. Seal's kiss from a rose is as smooth as silk.
But to me the other standout track (apart from U2) is Massive Attack's "When the Hunter...". Dark moody and with some fantastic singing by Tracy Thorn, this is the CD's highpoint. The Offspring and Nick Cave along with Mazzy Star provide the other interesting moments.
All in All a great CD which is worth every cent you pay for it and then some more.
The U2 track and the Seal track are both classics, Nick Cave is awesome (his album No More Shall We Part is excellent - another good buy) and the rest of the album make this better than the average soundtrack.
It's not spectacular, but if you want a sampling of good groups to get into, give it a try.

Kiss By a Rose and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill me are the only two good songs in my opinion.The othes aren't worth it.Published on June 3 2004
I can safely say that the first 7 tracks on here are excellent. After that, not bad. Obviously the "U2" and "Seal" songs are the big ones, but the tracks from... Read morePublished on Sept. 17 2003 by H3@+h
Not the best soundtrack ever, but Nick Cave's song is great. Just get past the silly generic songs from U2, Seal, Flaming Lips, and PJ Harvey.Published on June 19 2003 by crafty congestion
Three decent tracks, that's it. Once you're past U2, Seal, and the Flaming Lips (and maybe the PJ Harvey track too), there's no reason to spin this any more. Read morePublished on Oct. 14 2002 by Thomas Wilk
Okay, so maybe Nick Cave and Massive Ataack add to the overall effect of the album... but in my opinion, Sunny Day Real Estate's "8" is an amazing song, easily the best... Read morePublished on Oct. 10 2002 by Nate Binder
