Fun, that's what life is all about, right? This month I've found Lorne Balfe's awesome work for Lego Batman in the playlist, a lot! 

I saw the film at the cinema just ahead of the release date as Odeon were running advanced showings and loved it. I'm a big fan of pretty much all the Batman films to date and with the more recent Nolan trilogy being on my radar all the way through Uni, it was great to be able to revisit the films in a more tongue and cheek light.

Lorne clearly had a lot of fun with the score, while there is a wealth of new ideas in there, the creative way he took ideas from the previous scores of all three films and reworked them together into cues for Lego Batman was incredible, I found it genuinely entertaining. 

If you only ever list to one cue from this score, make sure it's "Black", as you will hear references and re orchestrated ideas of all three of Hans's scores for the Nolan Batman's reworked into a suite here alongside Balfe's newer ideas for the Lego Batman character in a really cool, bombastic style.
