ScoreKeeper Has Five CDs of Frederik Wiedmann's GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES To Give Away

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here with yet another soundtrack giveaway. I've got a ton of titles stacking up on my desk collecting dust so it's time to find these CDs a new home where eager ears will love and cherish them forever.

Next up is a greenfully good score from GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES composed by Frederik Wiedmann. So many of these animated comic book adaptations are hitting the tube and they all have some extraordinary aspects to them. One that particularly seems to maintain a high quality is music. Since Shirley Walker blazed the trail with her stunning music for BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, television networks  have been quick to try to duplicate the role of music in their animated superhero programming. I can't think of too many Marvel or DC based animated series that actually has bad music. It's all been pretty remarkable.

 



GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES is no exception. While it may be small in budget, it's not small in scope, ambition, or quality. If this trend keeps up it won't be long before the best music in television will reside primarily in "kid's programming."

So I have five copies of this CD courtesy of La-La Land Records that I would like to find new homes for. What do you have to do?

Email me at scorekeeper@aintitcool.com using the subject: TURN MY DARKEST NIGHT INTO MY BRIGHTEST DAY! and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your choice for the next  big comic book hero to receive their own animated series. I'll collect all the entries, then randomly select the five winners who will then receive a CD of GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES by Frederik Wiedmann. The deadline for submission is Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 11:59pm CST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.

For more information regarding this release including track listing, audio demos, and purchasing information, check out La-La Land Records.

By the way... La-La Land Records is currently selling a number of their titles at $4.98 each! If you just buy one, I'd go with HELLE'S BELLES (1969) by Les Baxter. I've been listening to that a TON this past year. The fact it's only $4.98 is almost criminal.

    I miss Shirley Walker scoring with a FULL ORCHESTRA

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Once the DCAU went to all-synth music with Justice League, the quality of the music took a sharp nosedive.

    the synth definitely started in batman beyond. I'm a douche for nitpicking, I know. If it helps, I agree with you.

    Picked it up a while back.

    by Darkman

    Even managed to get it signed by Wiedmann himself (nice guy, BTW). <br><br> Pretty good music. If nothing else, it's far superior to JNH's grotesquely disappointing music for the feature.

    camyo, at least Batman Beyond had SOME live instruments at times

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Justice League was one of those shows where they were trying to make synths sound like an orchestra, which always sounds lousy. The 90's was a real "golden age" for cartoon scoring with a live orchestra, especially on WB shows like Batman: TAS, Superman: TAS, Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, ect. Nowadays the only TV 'toons that use an orchestra are lousy Seth MacFarlane shows.

    Can't disagree with you there

    by Cameron

    I feel a hankerin' to watch some batman beyond now
