Sumthing Else Music Works, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment present the original motion picture score to Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts composed by Kevin Riepl. Inspired by Warner Bros. Consumer Products' and Mattel's popular Batman Unlimited merchandise line, the movie is produced by award-winning Warner Bros. Animation and feature Batman, alongside iconic DC Comics Super Heroes such as The Flash and Green Arrow, battling the criminal likes of The Joker and The Penguin...
For me, this album had slightly more going for it than the Batman Unlimted: Monster Mayhem score. Both are impressive, but Animal Instincts takes a step closer to James Bond action adventure territory. In fact, 'To the Roof' and 'Nightwing Falls' brought to mind David Arnold's score for Casino Royale. I was also reminded of John Williams's work on Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when listening to 'The Chase'.
The album contains 42 tracks (50 min, 33 sec) and there isn't a wasted second of music. It's pretty obvious that Kevin Riepl had a blast composing the music, and this sense of enthusiastic fun comes bursting through in the music.
It represents an enjoyable collection of action adventure themes that you should seriously consider adding to your soundtrack collection.
