After big success on the Batman soundtrack, Danny Elfman
turns his talents to another comic character – Dick Tracy, as portrayed by Warren Beatty in the 1990 film that's not nearly as good as its music! While the movie was filled with over-the-top characterizations that completely went against the brilliance of the original strip, Elfman
's score is a brooding masterpiece of understatement – rejecting all the cartoony elements of the film, and instead furthering Elfman
's growing talent for orchestral scoring. Titles include "Slimy DA", "Meet The Blank", "Breathless Comes On", "Crime Spree", "Rooftops", "Blank Gets The Goods", "Showdown/
Reunited", and "After The Kid".
