Sweeping irresistibly forward like some dream hybrid of Ziggy Stardust, Kashmir-era Zeppelin and German techno, U2's massive "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" launches this disc. Also included are tracks by Brandy (the Lenny Kravitz-produced "Where Are You Now?"), Seal ("Kiss from a Rose"), Eddi Reader ("Nobody Lives Without Love"), and The Devlins ("Crossing the River"). Michael Hutchence butchers Iggy Pop's "The Passenger," but The Offspring mines big fun from The Damned's "Smash It Up." --Jeff Bateman

A Good Collection of Under-appreciated Music

"I don't think this CD was very popular when it came out back in '95, but now some of the artists on here are no longer "no-names" - case in point, the Flaming Lips have rocketed in popularity since the release of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (which I suggest you pick up if you like the song on here) and Massive Attack has grown more popular I think (pick up their album Mezzanine for some really good trip-hop).The U2 track and the Seal track are both classics, Nick Cave is awesome (his album No More Shall We Part is excellent - another good buy) and the rest of the album make this better than the average soundtrack.It's not spectacular, but if you want a sampling of good groups to get into, give it a try."
A soundtrack better than the movie

"I saw the movie in the theaters and grimaced throughout, but found the music continued to meet my expectations of what Batman should invoke, and so I had to get this CD. Unlike the film itself, this project was well executed and gave much more of an emotional connection. There is a little bit of rock, punk and R&B on here to appeal to a wide variety of consumers---or somebody with one very ecclectic palate--so even if you were soured by the single overplay from this album do not let it stop you from going out to get this treasure."
Very Good Compilation

"I got this disc years ago, and enjoyed it very frequently. Also, it was my introduction to Seal, and Kiss From A Rose is now one of my favorites. The opening track is kick-ass. And there are a few other winners in this compilation that make it deserving of a five star rating. Overall, it's pretty cool. Check it out."
