This is a great album and I purchased it in vinyl when it was released years ago. I now have the CD as well and enjoy listening to it again. The funk is funky and the slow songs are very well written. I highly recommend it.

Vinyl Repressing coming!!! Read below

Some of the albums in this particular batch fall in the era when CD sales took over the industry, and Warners and the other big record companies made little to no vinyl editions of the records. These new pressings will feature the albums in their original format (no bonus tracks). Here’s the full list of what’s to come:

June 21st: “Around the World in A Day” (1985)
July 19th: “Parade (Under the Cherry Moon soundtrack)” (1986)
August 23rd: “Sign o’ the Times”(1987)
September 20th: “The Black Album”(1987 recorded; 1994 released)
October 18th: “Lovesexy” (1988) and “Batman” soundtrack (1989)
November 22nd: “Graffiti Bridge” soundtrack (1990) and “Diamonds and Pearls” (1991)
December 13th: “The Love Symbol” (1992)

I'm a huge fan of the original '89' Batman. I've loved it since I was a kid and in my opinion, it's the best Batman movie there is. One of the key components is of course the Danny Elfman score. The triumphant Batman theme itself is just fantastic and sets the tone for the film.

Juxtaposed against it is Prince's soundtrack. There are 9 tracks altogether, however only 4 of these make an appearance in the film, and one of those - 'The future' one of the best tracks - is heard for a few seconds.

I believe Prince was asked to contribute just a few songs but went full out and wrote a whole album. But it is a great album overall, and it works on it's own or as a companion to the movie. There are a few samples lifted from the film and of course 'Batdance', but apart from that any of these songs could be found on a standard Prince album. They deal largely with love and sex, for example 'Vicki waiting', 'Electric Chair' and 'Scandalous'. But there's also 'Partyman', which is pretty self explanatory and 'The future' which is sort of commentary on the state of the world and doing something about it. So there is some diversity in ideas and lyrics.

The music itself is great, mostly upbeat and funky with some great guitar and keyboard work and with some darker sounds thrown in. The only song I don't like and that seems out of place is the duet, 'Arms of orion'. Apart from that every song is brilliant and the album is well worth getting, whether you're a Batman fan or not!

Don't have this LP anymore but still happen to have the hype sticker from the outer packaging as seen in scans, it's up for grabs if anyone wants it.

After "Lovesexy", Prince kind of took a little dive here. Even though this was for the movie, it was not his best work. It wasn't completely bad, "Batdance","Partyman",and "Electric Chair" are very good songs. "Vicki Waiting" was more Prince sounding, while "Scandalous", even though not that bad, compared to songs like "Adore", it's no contest. This is really the first almost flat album by P!!!!!!
