A complete release of Elfman's Batman is LONG overdue. I would also love to have the Main Titles as they appear in the film with the heavy drums (an overdub from what I heard?). But all that great music from Elfman and Goldenthal would be most appreciated.

I agree inregards to Elfman's '89 Batman. The entire score sounds a lot better in the movie. Not just the drums but I could hear other instruments on dvd than on the original CD.

The score is great, but the mix and selection of the cues could have been better. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe it is not the Goldenthals selection...I hope so. You could hear some alternate takes in French version on B&R SE. The Robin's first intro. at the museum (alternate theme, the original is better). Another one is the 'villains' theme which you hear during the Arkham scene when Ivy says 'his name is Bane' and there's another one...can't remember.

I think this is actually a cut-down version of the 2-CD version. Same bad sound, same bad channel.

I wouldnt say so. No complaints about the quality which is superb.

I edited some of the cues together(lousy edit, never been good at editing) as an example.

Yeah admittedly, that does sound better than the 2-CD version. All the same, how dare you tease us with this! roll eyes

What he said! wink

Seriously, though, thanks for sharing. I'm even more excited now. I can't WAIT to burn my lousy iso score boots.

This should take precedence over all potential BATMAN releases since it was never released. Oh how I would love to have his this score in whatever presentation.

I wouldn't be nearly as interested in this score as much as "Forever", due primarily to the handling of the main theme.

What was a elegant, yet gleefully flamboyant performance of that great variation on Elfman's theme in "Forever", was turned into a cheap Saturday-morning cartoon parody of itself for this movie.

Now, clearly the movie itself is indeed a Saturday-morning cartoon parody in and of itself, not to mention a huge, flash-frozen pile of dog feces, and therefore the difference in the main theme's approach and performance was rightfully adjusted to fit the tone, but it's still a terrible arrangement compared to "Forever" as a listening experience.

Now I am only talking about the main Batman theme itself, not the rest of the score or the other themes used in both movies.

As you may have already surmised, I am a HUGE fan of the Bat (although, I do LOATHE some incarnations). That said, I would still love to release everything Batman music related. Perhaps one day I will do so. Only time will tell.

What I really hope is that La La Land release both Goldenthal's "Batman & Robin" score and the upcoming "Batman: Under the Red Hood" score by Christopher Drake.
Any plans to see released soon on CD at least the last one, MV??

If Elliot Goldenthal himself worked hard to determine that the best representation of his score for an album of Batman & Robin would be a non-C&C program running 46 mins, it would be absolutely disrespectful to undermind his educated-opinion and efforts.

Oh well. Drake's music as of late has been awesome, and it would have been nice to see it done justice on a pressed CD w/ liner notes. But, of course, at least the music is even being released.

If there were some way to present both programs (The Search For Spock being an EXCELLENT way to do this), then that is the way it should be done. Anything else immediately opens itself up to criticism (though the 'have-it-both-ways' approach might as well, but those complaints just aren't as justified).

I'd have a nice, compact 50-60 minute album with a listening experience in mind. I wouldn't mind a C&C release but a tighter album would be worth revisiting more often.

And Goldenthal's music makes the movie tolerable. That's how wonderful it is.

well that would be a 3cd set wouldn't it ? wink


and i would love to see this picture in a 3cd jewell case: http://iusedtohavehair.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/batmanandrobin.jpg


and the score presentation like THE BLACK STALLION Intrada - prehaps compensate the filler room on cd3 with an interview with Goldenthal

I'd like a 2-disc complete score, with Goldenthal's original album presentation written in the liner notes. And I'd like to see that poster art used.

Indeed. FSM has done it this way a number of times, and it really is the best and most sensible way of doing it.
