AllMusic Review by

Previously responsible for the soundtrack to 1996's The Phantom, Academy Award-winning composer David Newman returns to the comic book genre with this orchestral score for Frank Miller's adaptation of Will Eisner's cult superhero noir The Spirit. Combining 1940s jazz with Morricone-esque spaghetti Western and traditional heroic music, the 18-track collection features a soprano piece from Newman's daughter, Diana ("Lorelei -- Angel of Death"), but omits Christina Aguilera's closing credits cover version of Marlene Dietrich's "Falling in Love Again."
