Back then, Batman really had amazing music in pretty much all mediums

Just to be clear...the facebook page is run by his promotional team, not by the man himself! It's no less true, of course, but still worth pointing out. Personally, I have very little interest in this

It's an overlay used when the Flying Graysons are introduced  

To anyone who appreciate this great score, I recommend to check out Michael Daugherty's Metropolis Symphony. There lays at least part of Goldenthal's inspiration for his Bat scores.

I just listened to all the samples, as well as Fire & Blood and Route 66. Oh my god. This composer's work is amazing. Why have I been here moping about the current state of scores for films I don't even watch? I'm buying all three of these CDs.

Raise the Roof is my favourite. Hell's Angels is awesome, too, but there's no recording of it in the Naxos series; the only one I'm aware of is one some compilation which wasn't easy to find.

I have been listening to the non-stop since I received it. The remastering job is (no surprise) top-notch. I admittedly could never get into the OST, for whatever reason it didn't flow right for me. This however, is a HUGE upgrade. The themes seem to be significantly more clear. I can't get enough of those James Thatcher horn rips! The power of the orchestra is on great display in this one. Having this in 99.9% complete form is an absolute gem. While I would love to have Batman and Robin, hearing this in complete form definitely raises my opinion of it, to the point where I wouldn't be crushed if we really do never get it.

and I LOVE the Two-Face theme.

The only cue I noticed was missing was a short section (maybe 40 seconds or so) that accompanies the scene when Two Face and his thugs are waiting for Batman to come up in the elevator. It's a couple of renditions of Two Face theme

I enjoy listening to the OST album, and I enjoy listening to the complete score.

 

Goldenthal had a lot of fun with this one

For me, for Batman Forever, the complete score is kinda noise overload and a bit repetitive.  The OST is nicely balanced and brief enough that it doesn't get too much.  Great score though.

 I haven't heard the expansion - happy s th the great ost- but, I did have the ' complete' B & R. OH MY! Way too much to savor!

Personally, I have very little interest in this, as I think the existing CD is a perfect representation of the score, but I really wish to see the 50-minute program he once prepared for BATMAN & ROBIN, should that ever happen.

I just posted my fifty minute program on the D.C. UNIVERSE thread.

Take a look and see if it compares to EG
