I wasn't a fan of this movie at all - a bland adaptation of an alright book at best mixed with a totally misguided prologue - but the score was fantastic and is honestly one of my favorite scores these composers have ever done. It's great to hear them compose with a full orchestra again and the results are really stunning. They do such a great job here that I can't say I have a favorite track because the whole thing is just so perfect. The song by Mark Hamill is also really excellent and I'm glad to see it included. One of my favorite Batman movie scores and is up there with Dark Knight Returns as one of the best scores from the DC DTV line.

Some of the music, felt like it was inspired by Danny Elfman's talent, especially the Looney song.
