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.

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.

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

When looking at it, it was such a luck that Danny Elfman was the one to write the score for Batman. No one else could have done the same thing, integrating madness, danger, heroism and darkness into one amazing package. By now, Batman`s theme song is one of the best and well known in the world, up there with James Bond, Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
The Soundtrack is not to be confused with Prince`s, which only contained non-score songs, aka songs that were not the background and theme songs in the movie. THIS however, is the real thing.
It is very crisp and clear, a melancholy sound that is not beaten by anything Elfman has written in later years, in fact he has never succeeded Batman. The major highlights of this score is: The Batman theme, Batman to the Rescue, Descent into Mystery, The Bat Cave, Charge of the Batmobile..and in fact, all of the tracks from there are fantastic. The album cant be compared to anything released today, it just blows away all competition. If there is another Batman Movie, I would want Danny Elfman to score it again, after all he is the only one can.
Recommended over anything else.

Tim Burton & Danny Elfman were made for each other. I've never seen a director giving so much space for the music to flow out from the movie. It was a wise move. With Burton's positively gothic outlook on the urban chaos that is Gotham City and its protector - Batman, Elfman superbly captures the vision onto music. I've lost words to describe the music in this album. You only need to listen to The Batman Theme to understand what I'm talking about.
Some people have hated the songs from Prince but I beg to differ. If there is one track from the Prince Batman soundtrack which deserves mention is the song "Scandalous" which plays during the end-credits of the movie. It's a superb atmospheric song that combines perfectly with Elfman's music which is why Elfman saw it fit to include shades of this tune in this album as a love theme since Prince wrote it as a making love song between Bruce Wayne and Vicky Vale.
I would recommend Batfans to buy this album and the Scandalous single if you want to avoid the other Batman songs from Prince.
