Reviews

Batman was a rush job, and sounds like it.

It does contain one genuinely exciting song in "Batdance", but even that heavily employs dialogue from the film. However - much like the film - the soundtrack overall is all shiny and revved-up with no place to go, and while it's supposed to be fun, it sorely lacks entertainment value.

The tracks are evenly split between House-influenced dance numbers and by-the-numbers ballads, that are tuneful enough I guess, but that doesn't prevent me from drifting off. And the continuous references to the movie, plus a guest cameo from Kim Basinger, gives off a smug air of Hollywood insider-ness.

So - like the film - this album feels more like a star vehicle vanity project than anything you'd actually want around your house. I do think however that Prince would make a way cooler Batman than Micheal Keaton.
