Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez said, "I write in a very conceptual format with the stories that surround Coheed and Cambria, but Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it. My goal was to find universal themes from Batman's existing history to help give the lyrics legs and dimension so that the song could live within that world."

Product Description

Original soundtrack to the 2011 video game featuring tracks from Coheed And Cambria, Panic At The Disco, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Raveonettes, Serj Tankian and others. The artists featured on the soundtrack approached their contributions to the album with their own unique interpretations of the stories surrounding Batman. The result is an eclectic mix of dynamic, atmospheric songs for an album that will appeal to fans of both the artists and Batman: Arkham City.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it!!!!!!!!! October 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm actually suprised at the lack of reviews for the soundtrack. This is the first review I've ever done and I just wanted to add my opinion about the cd as opposed to the other review on here. Also let me state that I also am a Batman fan and even I don't think the cd completely captures my thoughts on what batman songs should sound like. However, The songs themselves are great. At first listen I was like "Meh" its alright. The more I listened to it though I started getting drawn into the songs themselves and even humming them in my head. I have listened to this soundtrack nonstop for the past week and it sounds even better now. I'm starting to pick up on the little "meanings" behind certain parts of songs that somewhat tie it into the Arkham City mythos. It's not the best cd I've ever heard but it's definately worth picking up in my opinion. If you don't like it at first give it another couple of listens, it'll grow on you. I'm not even a fan of this type of music I just like the way it sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars In The Dark Spirit of the Bat June 3, 2013
By J. Wood
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Riddle me this: what would make the perfect soundtrack album to the greatest Batman game ever? This playlist is appropriatley dark and moody, and would make a great soundtrack to a Batman animated movie as well. Some tracks could be thought of as vocal character themes, for instance: the first track, "Mercenary" by Panic! At The Disco could be the theme for Batman himself, "Deranged" by Coheed and Cambria could be the vocal theme for The Joker, "Trophy Widow" by The Damned Things would make an awsome boss theme (esspecially for the final boss) and the final track, "Total Paranoia" by Serj Tankian, while not exactly being the best song in the world, could never the less be the vocal theme for Batman vs. Ra's Al Ghoul. Over all the tracks blend together nicely and the album as a whole sounds really cool. My experience with it was similar to a fellow reviewer, at first I thought "eh, it's okay", but the more I listened to it the more I liked it. In short, this album is no joke. It's the perfect companion piece to Arkham City and is highly recommended for hard core bat fans and those who have enjoyed the game that it was made to accompany. A perfect companion piece to the perfect Batman game. Personally, I don't know what everyone's problem is, I think this album rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Batman Arkham City Better Then Batman & Robin December 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Now what can I say that hasn't been said aready about this album thanks to Christopher Nolon for the ressurection of Batman in 2005 since then Batman has never been more popular then he is right now. hes in everything from comics movies cartoons video games even calendars your'e almost garrenteed to spend your hard earned money on everything anything involving Batman Now there are a handful of artists on deck for this album although I'm new to this collection of the very talented artists such as The Duke Spirit, Black Motorcycle Rebel, Blacqk Audio, amonst others.

I consider myself to be a casual listener when experimenting with alternitive rock or hard heavy metal the only bands I reconize are Panic at The Disco and Coheed and Cambria. I went and bought Batman Arkham City The Album and although it took quite a few listenings I noticed most of the songs most focused on the Joker and Batman other songs were either about the Riddler or Catwoman and even Hugo Strange Within the songs refering to the Joker i heard messages of death and choas Three weeks before the game's released through the music I had begun to ponder about the Joker's possible demise
Thanks to the single by coheed and cambria's Deranged there is a Lyric in there that repeats "Who will be your pretty little enemy when im gone your world will prove empty I promise you will always remember me."

Which makes Deranged one of my favorite songs on the album because I like how lead singer Claudio Sanchez sings from the Joker's point of view he puts on a great performance as he seems to emmulate The Joker's voice leaving you feeling as though hes directly speaking to you through the music the addition of the laughter towards the end of the track is the icing on the cake very cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice moddy playlist November 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Arkham City Album, is a great little compilation of moody rock/pop tunes that appropriately fits Gotham City. The Album showcases various different moods and themes that anyone familiar with the Batman universe will pick up on. (for example: certain selections must be for specific characters, whether Batman or Catwoman, ect..). But this is not the Album's strength. It's compilation as a whole brings a surreal transmigration of "our" music into a fictional universe, thus making the world of Arkham City more easy to relate to. The song selection spices up and enhances your experience in Arkham City...once the game is turned off and you want to be cool and jam with an album that showcases Batman on the cover. For more of a music narrative and emotionally driven pieces, check out the games official score, which rivals some of the best Hollywood scores out there.

I ordered this CD for just one of the songs and I honestly only liked a total of two songs on the entire CD.
