Customer Reviews

Batman Returns is, without a doubt, one of Danny Elfman's most strongest scores.
Gilbert
Highly recommended for classical music lovers, film score fans, Danny Elfman followers, and just about anybody who just plain likes good music.
RRL
Drastically different from the style of the original, Batman Returns is darker and gloomier, and I like it very much.

The legendary music of Danny Elfman's scores is best exemplified in this dark and beautiful pieced together score. The mood of the film is made only more potently haunting with this music as a guide. It strikes you in the face with tracks like "Birth of a Penguin", while then calming your nerves (sort of) with "Selena Transforms", not to mention the classic Tim Burton-style circus music in "Batman vs. the Circus." But he overdoes himself with what may be the best music from any music score in "The Final Confrontation." If you love Elfman, Burton, and great music, this is an essential soundtrack to behold.

The score for Batman Returns is a weird and intriguing piece. The Batman theme is slower and not heard as much. The Penguin's sinister yet childlike theme is playful and dark while Catwoman's is a disturbing piece with violins and drums. Highly recommended.

Danny Elfman, at this point in time, is the only person capable of scoring Batman. The dark tones and the chorus make this soundtrack as remarkable as the movie of Batman Returns.
If you want a great soundtrack, get this right away!
Don't bother with Elliot Goldenthal's garbage of Batman Forever. He is nowhere near as good as Elfman

Totally enchanting from beginning to end, Elfman's Batman Return's soundtrack captures all of the dark moody atmosphere of Burton's film. From the haunting chorus cries in the beginning to the bizarre circus music as Batman confronts the cirus gang, from the march of the Penguin's to Oswald's sad demise, Elfman has once again proven that he is made to score the Batman movies. The last track featuring "Face to Face" was a perfect representation of Bruce and Selina's relationship.

The film "Batman Returns" has a different approach and atmosphere when compared to the original 1989 "Batman". Instead of one villain, we have three: the Penguin, the Catwoman, and Max Shreck. Gotham City turns more gothic and much more sinister. And the music is staken to a whole new level.

Danny Elfman's music reminds me a bit of "Edward Scissorhands", mostly because of the choir and xylophones. It's beautiful, ethereal, and very poetic. The action music doesn't do the original 1989 action music justice, but they're not at all terrible. "Batman vs. the Circus" and "Wild Ride" sound wackier and maybe a bit campier, but the nervous energy shines throughout.

The Penguin's two themes is one of my favorite themes from Elfman. It shows that the villain was never loved by his parents, and he blames society for it. "The Lair" and "The Cemetery" are what make this character, while "The Finale" is a depressing realization that he will never be loved.

Catwoman's theme is such a delight. The high strings sometimes give me goosebumps, and the "meow" sound that the violins make are brilliant. The second half of "Selina Transforms" has such a tragic feel to it. The character is so frustrated at this point that she, like Bruce Wayne, creates a second identity. Batman and Catwoman are alike, if you think about it.

The song on this soundtrack, "Face to Face" by Souxsie and the Banshees, is pretty incredible. Elfman collaborated with the band by writing some of the music (the "meow" sounds are present here).

Drastically different from the style of the original, Batman Returns is darker and gloomier, and I like it very much.

Batman Returns is a completely different beast than the 1989 Batman. Not only in themes, but also atmosphere, and tone. Elfman understood this, and completely reworked the already gothic Batman theme into an even darker version of the original. Selina's / Catwoman's theme is haunting, and beautiful. The penguin's theme is tragic, but powerful. With powerful choir, orchestral undertones, and some intense and zany action cues, this is one of Elfman's better efforts. Also, I would recommend the La La Land Records expanded issue.

If you liked the glam gloom of Batman Returns, this album captures it perfectly. There are sweeping orchestral themes, flamboyant circus-style fight music, and the cooly sexy Batman/Catwoman love/hate song by Souxsie and the Banshees. This album makes great music for Halloween if you're not into the goofy Monster Mash variety of spooks. It's a little more "classical" than some Elfman music, with lots of lush minor scoring and pipe organ riffs.
