Description du produit
Presenting the latest release in our Expanded Archival Collection, renowned composer Elliot Goldenthal's (ALIEN 3, DEMOLITION MAN, HEAT, A TIME TO KILL) original score to the 1995 WARNER BROS. blockbuster film BATMAN FOREVER, starring Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Jim Carrey and Nicole Kidman, directed by Joel Schumacher. Goldenthal's robust orchestral score honors The Caped Crusader with a powerful theme that is pitch perfect whether appearing as a stalwart march or brooding character study. The rest of the score follows suit, effectively supporting the film s array of characters and large-scale action with complex, memorable themes and motifs. This remastered release has been radically expanded, more than doubling the running time of the original 1995 score soundtrack release. (The remastered 1995 score album is presented here as well). Produced and supervised by Elliot Goldenthal, produced for La-La Land Records by Neil S. Bulk and Dan Goldwasser, and mastered by James Nelson, this 2-CD limited edition release features exclusive, in-depth liner notes from film music writer John Takis and is a must-have for any film-music enthusiast. This is a Limited Edition of 3500 Units.

L'édition simple sortie auparavant faisait décidément trop office de "best of". Pas un mauvais "best of" en soi mais compte tenu du fait que la musique est quasi-omni-présente durant tout le film, il fallait qu'une double édition collector rende justice au travail de Monsieur Goldenthal. C'est chose faite, et ce n'est pas pour déplaire, d'autant plus que ça participe à la réhabilitation d'un film relativement sympathique et plutôt très divertissant malgré ses (gros) défauts, ainsi que de sa musique, parfaitement dans l'esprit de l'homme chauve-souris.
En bref, une BO incontournable pour les fans de Elliot Goldenthal et ceux de Batman.
A quand le même traitement pour "Batman & Robin" qui, malgré son versant "nanar auto-parodique", comportait également une musique digne de ce nom ?

The first disc kicks off with "Main Title" and introduces his theme for Batman, which the composer says was by inspired by imagining kids playing with their Batman action figures (little did he know the motivations for the next film- or did he?). Though it lacks the driving butt-kickin' attitude of Elfman's theme, it has what the composer calls "a sense of power and flight" which makes it memorable in its own way. That theme makes several appearances throughout in various ways whether heroic in "Batmobile", ominous in "Bat Signal", imposing in "Second Riddle Delivered", tragic in "Flashback", or victorious in "Batman Phoenix".
The other characters get their own themes as well. There is a demented two-step waltz for the schizophrenic villain Two-Face (ironically played by a one-note Tommy Lee Jones) that's best heard in both aggressive mode in "Big Top Bomb" as well as "Have a Safe Flight/Through the Eye" and comical in "Two-Face's Lair" and "Two-Face's Entrance". There's a smoky film noir-influenced piano theme for the film's sultry love interest (Nicole Kidman) heard in "Rooftop Seduction" and later more sensually in "Go to Chase". Even Two-Face's thugs get one in "Thug Fight", a buzzing bit of bombast that has a similar zaniness to Nelson Riddle's music for the 1966 film with Adam West. However, this being a Goldenthal score, there's a ton of experimentation and Jim Carrey's the Riddler is where he lets loose with that. The character actually recieves two themes with a theremin to underscore his descnet into madness and a bouncy rhythm to accompany his mischievous antics and those can be heard best in "Nygma After Hours/Brain Drain", "Nygma's Apartment" and "More Heists" as they are full of TITUS-like zaniness with their combination of jazz and electronics . Though Robin (Chris O'Donnell) doesn't get his own theme (he would get one for the next film), but there is occasional use of electric guitar such as in "Laundry Stunt" and "Master Dick" which I guess is there to represent the character's adolescence.
The remainder of the score on the second disc is loaded with a large amount of exciting action music. The rambunctious "Happy Halloween/Seize and Capture" is where the villain themes dominate. "Riddles Solved/Partners/Battleship" has an understated suspensful build up of the Batman theme before heading to the film's climax. "Scuba Fight/Claw Island/Emperor of Madness" and "Fun and Games", make great use of all the hero and villain themes and "Batterdamerung" has heroic swirling strings that strangely aren't too different from what Elfman would do for SPIDER-MAN years later. "Wet Screen Kiss/March On!" closes out the score portion of the disc with Chase's theme dominating the first half in the same way as it was presented before and the Batman theme in the second half is heard at it's most triumphant in the track's second half which makes for an overall great finale. Following it are two bonus tracks and the original 45-minute score album release from Atlantic Records, which offers interesting differences in how the music was presented for that product.
As much as I enjoy the score, I'm not a fan of it's arrangement on the first disc since some sections are not in film order and it's presented in such an erratic fashion that can make it difficult to listen to as the thematic ideas don't develop properly (ironically, the Atlantic album is also not in film order but is somehow more coherent). Also, it's missing a really cool piece of music- a heroic trumpet theme for the Flying Graysons that has a hint of the Robin theme he would develop for the following film. Those qualms aside, it's great to have previously unreleased material and the liner notes make for a good read as they offer a good description of the score and a track-by-track analysis. Though Goldenthal has admitted in recent years that he doesn't have a desire to score action films as he once did (partly due to a severe head injury), I hope he gets to score another (better) superhero film since the genre could use someone with his unique compositional abilities provided he is allowed creative freedom. Some may find this score to be a bit too noisy and bizarre, but I think there's a lot of imagination at work here and proves that Batman as a character has been mostly blessed with pretty good music to accompany his many multimedia adventures and this is another worthy contribution to his legacy.
Lately La La land records has been consistently releasing one soundtrack after another that's great, especially the catalog includes Batman the animated series, Batman brave and the bold, and Superman the animated series and of course Batman Forever. The new expanded edition not only was expanded but it was remastered to perfection , the soundtrack can now be heard in all it's heroic insanely twisted, coin flipping riddler riddling glory , 2 cd's 28 tracks each, 56 tracks in total, 2 hours worth of music , and a booklet filled with photos and linear notes accounting the history of reinventing the franchise and valuable information on what inspired the choice to have Eilot Goldenthal score.
I cannot ask for more than how this score is presented on this wonderfully packaged soundtrack , the only thing I would ask for is that La La land release Batman and Robin, other wise for now I am as blind as a bat.
