5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Favorite March 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought my Batman score in 1989 and it is the one CD that has never been rotated out of the playlist here. The opening score builds and builds, and when it finally crests, you know you're in for a magnificent ride until the last note of the last track. I have enjoyed introducing friends to the fantastic sounds of Danny Elfman over the years, and the Batman score is always the first dose. If you're looking for a gift of music for friends or family (that's why I stopped in today) you can't go wrong here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Elfman!!! Jan. 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1989, I wasn't that happy at the idea of Tim Burton directing "Batman", and I definitely wasn't very happy at Danny Elfman composing the score. All that was because they collaborated in two projects that I found stupid and ridiculous: "Beetlejuice" and a Pee-Wee Herman movie whose title I don't remember.
In a way, when I saw "Batman" back in 1989, I was surprised at how Tim Burton made an effort to show the Dark Knight the way his creator, Bob Kane, created him: a dark crusader who comes out at night to strike fear in the hearts of criminals. However, I was kinda disappointed at the final result. Yet I had to admit that Danny Elfman created a spectacular score that went beyond whatever I had hoped for.
'The Batman Theme' opens with a dark motif that later gives way to the spectacular theme for the Dark Knight, and I have to say that it gives a certain air of music of the classic 40s movies. There is certain irreverence in the score, just like "Beetlejuice", especially the themes Elfman created for the Joker -'Clown Attack', 'Photos/Beautiful Dreamer', 'The Joker's Poem', and 'Waltz To The Death' to name a few. And the action music is so superb that I found it surprising that Elfman wrote this: 'Roof Fight', 'Batman To The Rescue', 'First Confrontation', and 'The Final Confrontation'. I'd also like to say that 'Charge Of The Batmobile' and 'Attack Of The Batwing' definitely blow me away; I love 'em. And since Batman's feats are somewhat heroic, I applaud the 'Finale', which is so epic.
All in all, Danny Elfman earned my respect by creating such a great score for "Batman", supported by a fantastic performance by the Sinfonia Of London Orchestra under the baton of a soon-to-be great Batcomposer, Shirley Walker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Score from Danny Elfman Jan. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think that Danny Elfman has had some of the best music in movies and though Batman is not my favorite of his scores it still is pretty good and all of the tracks are impressive but I especially like the Batman theme and photos/Beautiful Dreamer and I recommend this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary score to a ground breaking film. Feb. 8 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Oh did this ever bring back good memories listening to this. Danny perfectly captures the persona and legend of Batman for me. The driving power, the whimsical moments, it all adds up to a shimmering jewel of a soundtrack. I can see the movie in my head when listening to this...a masterful film and the music complements it fully.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extremely powerful and heroic score Jan. 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the best work of Danny Elfman and contains one of the best themes for a superhero out there. The music is bold, brassy, heroic, mighty, and percussive. It contains outstanding orchestral music that soars and never lets up. The Batman march is an extraordinary work that is used in almost every action cue, when Batman does something heroic. The music is mainly dark and gothic, which represents the dark knight and Gotham City perfectly. The dark, ominous music which is mixed with child-like rhythms and awesome action and adventurous music makes this score an incredible and thrilling ride. The action music really shines in "Roof Fight", "First Confrontation", "Batman to the Rescue", "Charge of the Batmobile", "Attack of the Batwing", "Up the Cathedral", and "The Final Confrontation". The love theme is also good and includes bits and pieces of Prince's song "Scandalous", which can also be found in "Kitchen, Surgery, Face-Off" and one tiny part of "Finale". "Beautiful Dreamer" by Stephen Foster is thrown in the score in various parts, such as "Photos/Beautiful Dreamer" (you think!), "Finale", and a tiny snippet if you listen closely toward the end of "Final Confrontation". The Joker's theme is a comedic like waltz that shows off the funny side of the villain. "Descent Into Mystery" contains great choral passages, along with wonderful string work and an explosion of the main theme. "Finale" is one of the best finales I have ever heard in a film score. It is powerful, awesome, mighty, bold, noble, and heroic. We are finally left with the "Batman Theme Reprise" which states his musical voice one last time. This is a truly awesome score that is without a doubt, one of the best and most powerful scores out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bat Signal Dec 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
Danny Elfman's score for Tim Burton's BATMAN is my favorite among his work. "The Batman Theme" is both heroic and dark at the same time. The theme is as appropriate for the character, in much the same way the Superman Theme by John Williams, is that character as well. As dark as this film score is at times, Elfman also infuses it with both romance, and a certain amount of zip to offset its darker qualities. The inclusion of Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer" for 2 tracks was a masterful touch. It conveyed the Joker's twisted obsession with Vicki Vale perfectly.
I can understand why Warner Brother's wanted to give a big push to the Prince album, but at the same time, it puzzles me that Elfman's score got little to no recognition. Clearly, Prince (or whatever he calls himself now) had an impact on the film; But the film's score was the icing on the cake (musically at least), for me. Boggles the mind.
I highly recommend the CD to anyone who is an admirer of Elfman. You will be glad that you took my advice. The CD has 21 tracks and a running time of 54 minutes 55 seconds
