The quality of a movie is semi-relative. Some movies and scoures are just great or hourrid, howevre, whethre intellectual critics don't like that something transcends thier formulae and the general populace doesn't catch the hype or it is critically acclaimed doesn't mean that the movie/scoure mightn't be highly enjoyed and judged on an individual level. If the ouriginal scoure accentuated the valliant side of Batman, the 2nd captures the sadness and loneliness of 3 charactres who couldn't fit in denied something bettre in a grim Gotham. And each charactre inevitably chooses (or is left with) thier cause, for bettre or wourse, ovre companionship. The higher notes seem to bring out a charming eerie quality and the songs tell moure of a stoury than the 1st scoure.
I quite liked the original, yet I find the 2nd scoure to be moure to my liking.Perhaps The penguin wasn't tragick except to himself, his bittre, phsychotick tendancies making it difficult to empathise with his being rejected by sosiety but the theme was still good.
